About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

We are DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH! This third floor condo is one of the closest in Orange Beach to the water. Let the sound of the surf relax your mind as your eyes wander over the expansive gulf views. This is the third unit east of Perdido Pass (Alabama Point Bridge) which is next to a preserve. This is a low density complex and the pools are not on the beachside, which translates to 'quiet beachfront'.

This recently updated condo is perfect for a romantic get away, or a small family vacation. Enjoy the amenities such as a flat screen HDTV with cable, internet access and a view of the gulf while cooking dinner in the full kitchen!


'The location could not be better. It's in the middle

of everything.' -- Liz Hernandez, Violet, La.


Extensive Lei Lani amenities include beautiful quiet beach front, two outdoor pools, indoor beachfront heated pool, tennis court, outdoor grills and picnic areas, Old River access with boat dock, covered picnic areas, beachside bathroom and changing areas, beachfront chair, umbrella, water craft rentals, and more.

From the front door, your toes can hit the sand in under a minute!

Built in phases since 1983, the family friendly Lei Lani condo complex is one of the few developments on Perdido Key that is located both on the beach and Old River. This unit is located in the tower on the Beach with private balcony - the sunrise and sunset can both be seen and are unbelievably beautiful! See our photos to truly appreciate all the views from our unit.


'In one day, my daughter and I went crabbing in Old River, tubing in Old River, played

tennis, rented a chair and umbrella on the beach, went scuba diving and swam in the heated pool, - this place is terrific.' -- Joe Coyne, Medina, Minn.


Our 1 Bedroom comfortably sleeps two in the king size bed and a queen sized sofa bed is in the living area.

Ideally, this 1 bedroom 1.5 bath condo is most comfortably enjoyed by a couple or small family.

This 1 bedroom unit includes a full kitchen with all dining accessories, and all towels, linens, pillows, and blankets are provided.


'I walked in the door to the condo, and simply said 'wow,

this place is right next to heaven - the views are awesome!'

- - Katie Maia, Denver, Colorado


In addition to the multiple on-site amenities of Lei Lani, and the luxurious accommodations of the unit, Orange Beach and Perdido Key is a vacation dream for you and your family.

Recommended area restaurants include Tacky Jack's, LuLu's, Cosmos, Live Bait, Cobalt and The Gulf, as well as the many restaurants featured at The Warf. Several hamburger, pizza and Bar-B-Q locations are also nearby. If local music and bar action is your thing, the famous Florabama is an easy walk (less than 8/10ths of a mile) so you can drink and enjoy without worrying about driving.

About Keith & Karen Donaldson

Karen and I purchased this condo because we love the beach. Karen loves to sit on the beach and have a nice adult beverage while talking to friends and family, I enjoy scuba diving, boating and golf. We both enjoy the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. While we are happy to rent, we are equally happy when not rented to use and enjoy ourselves. Please come and enjoy a little slice of heaven that we enjoy as often as we can. If you want information on activities or what to do or any question about the condo or renting it, please call - we are more than happy to help!

Keith & Karen Donaldson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Keith & Karen Donaldson chose Orange Beach East

We chose Orange Beach because of the beautiful white beaches, the many activities close by, the boat dock in the back and the closeness to Floribama. Combine these aminities with the fact the condo is only 3 1/2 hours from home and it makes the perfect retreat for us.

What makes this condo unique

Karen and I are both active so we enjoy a wide range of activities such as sunning on the beach, swimmining in one of the 3 pools, playing tennis, biking along the shore and in the nearby State park, scuba diving, boating, water skiing and tubing. We also enjoy dining out as well as a wonderfully cooked meal (Karen is a terrific cook) with a great bottle of wine while watching the sunset.

Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our week, soaking up the warmth and the sun on the great beach in front of the condo. We wished the week hadn’t rushed by so fast!

If you are looking for a beautiful place in Orange Beach - look no further. It is very comfortable and was perfect for our vacation. This is directly on the beach. Being on the second floor makes it so convient to the beach etc Karen is a great owner willing to assist if you need her. Wish we could have spent a few more days in our home away from home!

Our room was very nice. The balcony view was really great. We saw dolphins almost daily.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st trip to AL. The room was very nice and had everything the two of us needed for our week long stay. Keith was very easy to correspond with and always returned e-mails, texts, and phone calls. The beach is just a short walk out the back of the building and the white sand and clear water was beautiful. We had a great vacation in Orange Beach and would stay at Lei Lani again

Owner's Response: Thank you Scott for your review. We know there are many choices in Orange Beach and we are glad that you stayed with us. We hope that we made a good impression and that your first trip to AL won’t be your last. Thanks, Karen and Keith

Owner's Response: Thanks David! We’re happy that you enjoyed your stay. You’re so correct about our easy beach access, and because we’re a low density building, there’s no fighting for space once you’re out there. Hope to see you again! Karen & Keith

delightfully decorated, very clean, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving holiday down at the condo, and were impressed that all amenities were as stated and functional, complete with matching dishes, plenty of towels, comfortable but not crowded living area and balcony. It was great to have 1 full plus 1/2 bath, and the couch provided comfortable sleeping as well. Great for a couple or up to 4 folks. Perfect view from balcony for morning and evening coffee, and the Donaldsons were wonderful to work with in getting any questions answered about arrival, codes, etc. great to not have to check in just go in when we got there as it was evening. This visit there were dolphins, manta rays, lots of fish and lovely clear water, sunny a bit cool but able to enjoy the beach and walk through the water. Convenient to lots of restaurants and shopping..our favorite was GT's....terrific food and atmosphere! We will definitely be returning and recommend this condo for those heading to Orange Beach! Janice and Dave
