Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This 4th Floor Unit in the center of the complex is in the perfect location. Just high enough so that you don't get a lot of noise from the pool areas during the day, but low enough that you can leave the bedroom sliding patio door open at night and listen to the waves crashing all night long. Shoalwater is unique in that the units are staggered instead of side by side. There is a great view down the beach in both directions instead of just looking straight out at the water. If you had a good arm you could throw a rock to the surf. Another great thing about Shoalwater: it is two floors shorter than all the adjoining buildings which means fewer guests, less crowding at the pool, beach and parking lot.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom has two twin beds (kids love this room). The living room features a sleeper sofa which pulls out into a queen-size bed, with linens and pillows provided. Flat screen TV's and DVD Players are found in every bedroom and in the living room. The living room also has a stereo/CD Player with an iPod jack. The master bedroom has a bedside stereo with an iPod dock. This is a newly remodeled unit with granite countertops in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances. The dining table seats six with additional seating for four at the bar. The entire unit has just been redecorated including new ceramic tile floors in all the common areas.

Orange Beach has the most beautiful beach on the gulf. If you get tired of the beach, move to the beautiful outside pool area or take the kids to the neat Kiddie Pool. For your convenience, private restrooms are beside the Kiddie Pool. If the weather happens to cloud up or turn cool in the winter, just move inside to the Indoor Heated Pool and Hot Tub. This indoor area also has a Dry Sauna and an Exercise Room. If you are a sports buff try the lighted tennis or basketball court.

Shoalwater is just a few blocks from Orange Beach's three supermarkets and a Rite-Aid and CVS drug store. Adventure Island is just across the street which is a big hit with the kids. It is an Arcade, Go Kart Track, Miniature Golf, Laser Tag and much more. If you have unexpected guests, the Holiday Inn Express is just next door. In the summer, the Holiday Inn Express also has an outdoor snack bar with hot dogs, hamburgers and frozen drinks (the only ones on the beach). Souvenir City is just one door down if you need a new bathing suit or forgot your sandals or a beach towel. There are an endless number of fine restaurants in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores but one favorite, Bubba's Seafood, is just across the street.

If you are a golfer, the area is located on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and there are several championship courses nearby. The fishing boats in the Orange Beach Fishing Fleet are located at one of the many great marinas (which all have great restaurants). There are many wonderful fishing boats in Orange Beach and their catch is unrivaled on the Gulf of Mexico. Back Bay fishing is also available if you'd rather fish for redfish and speckled trout. Orange Beach is home to the Annual Red Snapper Tournament.

Orange Beach is famous for its sunny days but if you happen to encounter a passing rain shower just head north a few miles to Foley. The Tanger Outlet Mall sports nearly 150 stores and a food court. Take advantage of the No-Tax Weekend just before school starts.

Our family vacationed in Destin for many years. 18 years ago we decided that we couldn't take the crowded streets and long restaurant lines any longer. We started looking for another beach destination and found Orange Beach. We haven't regretted it for one minute and decided to buy a condo here in 1999. OB is a great place to relax!!!

If you feel a party coming on just head east down the beach for a few miles to the Florida state line. There you will find the iconic roadhouse 'The Flora-Bama Club'. This world famous club is on the beach and has live music every night. 'What happens at Flora-Bama stays at Flora-Bama'.

All in all you won't find a better place for your vacation than Orange Beach and you won't find a nicer and more convenient condo than this one. If you ever give it a try, you'll be coming back.

About Caroline Jordan

Our family is in the retail grocery business. To us it is the people pleasing business so we try to equip our unit with everything your family will need. We are 9 hours away from Orange Beach so we don't get to go as often as we'd like. When we do get to our condo we want a hassle free experience. We want the same thing for our guests.

Caroline Jordan purchased this condo in 1999

Why Caroline Jordan chose Alabama

Gulf Shores Airport (KJKA) is close by and has excellent services. The 7,000 foot runway will accomodate most planes and the airport has several instrument approaches including an ILS.

Orange Beach is only 33 miles from Pensacola Regional Airport (PNS) and 70 miles from Mobile Regional Airport (MOB). Both airports have several commercial airlines serving them.

There are 3 theme parks, a water park and several miniature golf courses in the area.

What makes this condo unique

Beach Chair and Umbrella Rentals are available Daily.

Spring Break 2017 comfortable, well appointed condo

  • 5 of 5

March 25 to March 31, 2017

This is our second stay in this condo.

When we found out that our granddaughter would be playing in the girl's high school softball tournament in Gulf Shores, and since we prefer staying in Orange Beach, I knew that I needed to get in touch and book this condo early.

Condo was more than adequate for 3 adults and 3 teenage girls with no need to use the sleeper sofa.

Kitchen is much better equipped than most.

The central location of this condo is great.

The home owners association does an excellent job maintaining the property and security is very visible.

Thank you for making this condo available for renters like ourselves.

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara, Thank you so much for returning to our condo and enjoying everything Shoalwater 404 has to offer. We consider this condo like our second home and want our guests to be as comfortable as if they were staying in their own home. We will pass this great review along to the HOA to let them know that our guests are pleased with the grounds and the security. We want families to come back year after year for vacation and knowing that they feel that the complex is well maintained and safe is so important. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Cutest Condo on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent spring break 2017 on this property and we had the most wonderful time! The condo is brightly decorated and welcomes comfortably a family of 6. We played games went to the beach every sing day and took naps. What a fantastic vacation. The condo has 2 sliding doors that open to a beautiful patio and overlook orange beach. The best part is at night you can actually hear the waves crashing from your condo. Literally the beach is right outside your door.

We have rented many VRBO's before. This was by far the best space and the best deal. The kitchen was well stocked with every single cooking utensil and eating utensil. I didn't have to buy a can opener or buy a spatula. It was all there for me to make delicious meals every night.

The Wal-mart is a couple of blocks down the street with a Dollar General. We bought our beach chairs and boogie boards for a very inexpensive price and we chilled on the beach chairs while the kids played in the waves.

I would highly recommend this condo to those who would like to relaxing week right near a beautiful beach. We are already planning our next trip!
