About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Do you want an affordable Gulf front vacation with great amenities at low prices? Our Condo is for you! This two bedroom unit is priced as low as many one bedrooms. It's like you get the second bedroom and bath free! We strive to keep our rates some of the lowest in the building.

This direct beachfront two bedroom, two bath unit gives you front row seats on the beach and Gulf. There is NOTHING but a pool between you and the water... Dig your toes into the sugar white sand and relax, or play in the heated oceanfront pool! Watch the sunrise without getting out of the king sized bed in your oceanfront master suite.


Perfect for families and affordable for couples, our unit is loaded with extras to make your stay enjoyable. My husband and I have two children so we know how to make a place 'kid friendly'. We have put a lot of thought into setting up the Condo and have three flatscreen TV's, DVD players, stereo, Xbox with games, DVD library, board games, books, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys there for you to use. You don’t need to drag all that stuff with you from home! We even have a pack-n-play and a portable high chair for the little ones…

The master bedroom has a King bed with French doors opening onto the balcony. There is a wall mounted flat screen TV and a large closet. Your bath has the sink/dressing area separated from the shower, so it feels like having an extra half bath. The second bedroom has a Queen bed, another flatscreen TV and another full bath.

The spacious main living area has another flat screen TV, comfortable seating, and amazing gulf views. The tiled balcony is huge and adds another 180 square feet (8X22) of space to spread out. Have dinner on the outside table, or relax on the loungers and watch for dolphins.

Of course there is also a fully equipped kitchen. A frig, dishwasher, microwave, brand new stove, washer/dryer, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes, etc... If I have it in my kitchen at home, it is there at the condo too!

We are constantly updating the unit and this year added a new washer/dryer, new sleeper sofa, and lots of other little extras for you!


The building has free WIFI, an elevator, two large pools (one heated year round), two kiddie pools, luggage carts in the lobby, and on-site security.


If you aren't familiar with Gulf Shores, it is an awesome location. We have a little library of guidebooks and area information in the Condo for you to use. And since we lived in the area for 5 years and visit often, I will be happy to share my area knowledge and spend time talking with you and helping to plan your trip. You can golf, shop, parasail, bike and hike in the state park, eat at great restaurants, take a day trip to the Blue Angel Museum in Pensacola or the Battleship Alabama in Mobile (getting tired yet?) Or you can hang out on the beach all day, and have pizza delivered in at night. The choice is yours!

The mild temperatures in the off season, heated pool, and wealth of area attractions make our condo a great vacation spot year round. Come and stay at our place!!!

About Janet

My husband, two children and I lived in Daphne Alabama for 5 years. While there, we purchased a one Bedroom Condo in Orange Beach, which we still own, Career shifted us away from the beach, but we still come down several times a year. As the children have gotten older, (and bigger!) we decided to invest in a two bedroom unit as well. So even though our Surfside Shores rental is newer to the market, I have been doing my own property management for 15years now.

I manage the rentals myself, allowing me to keep costs low. But we still have a great housekeeper and maintenance company right there to take care of things for you quickly.

Our Orange Beach Condo has developed a loyal following of repeat renters, and we hope to build up our Gulf Shores rentals with the same great service and low prices.

Janet purchased this condo in 2011

Why Janet chose Gulf Shores

We love the beach! Orange Beach and Gulf Shores are every bit as beautiful as pricier Florida destinations. One day we will be back full time!

What makes this condo unique

I love dolphin watching from the balcony, and usually manage to see some each trip. I am also an amatuer photographer and you will find me on the beach at sunrise and sunset capturing the view...

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great, location awesome. Security guard on duty when we got there was hilarious! Loved how short of a walk was to the water, pool was nice and never got too crowded. Great to have two patio doors to use, so if sleepy heads were in one room you can use the other for early morning coffee watching dolphins! Plenty of seats on the patio, we ate all meals out there. Never turned on the TV, but it was a nice option in case TS Alberto decided to visit, which thankfully he didn't! Thanks!

Beautiful location with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Owner was great and friendly to work with prior to arrival. The location is fabulous! Picture perfect beach, the pool is wonderful as well! The area was never very crowded, we even had the pool to ourselves for a couple of hours one afternoon. It's just a few stoplights to the typical vacation shops and public beach crowds. The condo itself was quiet, never heard much from the neighbors at all. We didn't use the kitchen much except for breakfasts, but it was definitely well equipped with a lot of tools if you choose to do much cooking. The furnishings could use some updating, but it was clean and comfortable. (I didnt book my vacation to stay inside and look at furniture!) The rooms felt spacious. The beach/pool accessories were great to have there to use!! (Tip: check out the dollar general for souvenirs and such, its massive and very reasonable priced!) It also looked like there were fun games and things in the condo if you get rained out, we were blessed by excellent weather tho! We would gladly book again here for a future vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write. So glad you had good weather and a good stay! We update something in the unit every year and this year it was all new patio furniture. We are always looking to improve :) Hope to have you back! Janet

My family stayed in this condo and we absolutely loved it! This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and Janet was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. We have 2 small children, 5 and 2 and they loved the beach and the condo. The beach and the pool were never very crowded and everything was very well kept. We highly recommend this property and hope to return next summer.
