Perhaps the most recognizable feature of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are the 32 miles of white-sand beaches that stretch across the Alabama coastline.

Theresa purchased this condo in 2010

Why Theresa chose Gulf Shores

The 1st time we came to Gulf Shores we just could not believe the WHITE sand and EMERALD GREEN WATER! THIS location LOCATION LOCATION IS THE BEST! You can walk to everything you need. After driving and driving with non stop questions. Mom are we there yet? We get out of the car and don't have to get back in the car to eat or shop. Having perfect climate and family atmosphere attracted us to come back and get a place right on the beach. Our kids just love being able to go on the beach without having to cross any roads or walkways. We can watch them from the balcony. As you can see this is perfect vacation set-up!

What makes this condo unique

You're right on the beach no need to cross any road. You want to get a drink or freshen up, shopping and dining all in walking distance. Have the kids swim in the pool while you enjoy a drink this is your place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo! It had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was fully stocked and there was plenty of room for 5 people. We really liked the security of a gated community. I hope to stay again next year! The owner was very helpful with answering all my questions and returning the deposit promptly.
