About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 - but 6 if you have small kids)


Welcome to our beach getaway!

Enjoy watching the dolphins, boaters and beachgoers from this 5th floor direct Gulf-front condominium on the sugar-white sand of Orange Beach, Alabama. You won't find a better view! Enjoy breakfast on the gulf front balcony watching dolphins play near the shore. Relax in the evening on the balcony as the sun sets across the gulf. If you're looking for a quiet vacation spot, this low density condominium (only 37 units) is just the vacation spot for you.

Convenient to shopping (including the new Publix Shopping Center and the Tanger outlet mall in Foley), restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, Waterville USA water park, Gulf Shores zoo, and The Hangout in Gulf Shores. The Wharf, with concerts at The Amphitheater, restaurants and shopping are less than five miles away. Pensacola Naval Air Station is approximately 20 minutes to the East.

The pocket door can separate the living area from the bunk beds and the bedroom for a quiet evening after the children go to bed.

We are located just a few short miles down the beach from Gulf Shores, Alabama to the west and Perdido Key, Florida to the east.

This 5th floor condo offers a Gulf-front vacation with great amenities at an affordable price. This 700sqft unit has direct gulf views that overlook some of the whitest beaches in America.

Enjoy the direct Gulf front views of the beach and gulf from the balcony with unobstructed views east toward the Perdido Pass and Perdido Key.

This is a one bedroom (king-size bed w/memory foam topper), one bathroom condo, plus two bunk beds, that is perfect for the families with small children. And the affordable rental price makes the condo excellent for couples. The NEW recliner and NEW queen size sofa sleeper in the living area makes this condo a great choice for up to four adults and two children, so go ahead and bring the babysitter. We provide 100% Egyptian Cotton linens and plenty of pillows to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is completely equipped with new full-sized appliances and a wide assortment of cooking utensils. There's a washer/dryer in the unit, if you need them!

Enjoy your favorite digital cable television shows on our 42' flat screen LCD HDTV in the living room as well as the 26' flat screen LCD HDTV in the bedroom. Bring or rent your favorite DVDs too!

What makes this condo unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

"We just got home from a great week at Orange Beach! Everything was great!! You have a great place - the condo as a whole was very quiet which is exactly what we wanted - the beach wasn't too crowded either. Thanks again for allowing us to stay and have a great memorable vacation!"

would do it again!!!

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. The view was amazing. Access to ocean easy and quick. Beach fun and not too crowded. Room was clean but took us a bit to figure out outlets were turned on and off by light switch. Room a bit small for our 5 and should sleep 6. Would we stay again? Definitely! And we have already recommended it to many friends.

Great time without a crowd

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. The owner was very responsive from my first inquiry through the day of our departure. The unit was clean and perfect for a couple though would easily work with two kids. We enjoyed the idea of the grills downstairs and cooked out one night. GREAT view without an over crowded beach. We will definitely plan to stay again.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

The condo was cozy and comfortable. The communication and eagerness to please was top notch. The location is perfect. Beach service was available. There does need to be a regular light in the bedroom though.

Condo is excellent for a couples getaway or small family. Great location without the overcrowded beach of that some condos have. The condo is bright and comfortable with everything you need for a good time at the beach.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

This condo is in a great location. The unit is in decent condition but could use some updates. We would stay at this complex again, but not this unit. The online pictures show two adirondack chairs and one lounge chair on the balcony, but there was only one chair and one lounge chair when we arrived. We were traveling with our 4 year old child and every time we turned on the bathroom light she would cover her ears because the ventilation noise is so loud. Our negative feelings about this unit may also stem from the fact that the owner failed to warn us that construction work would be taking place on the balcony during our stay. We were awakened at 7:00 am by banging hammers, drills, and construction workers talking to each other while playing their loud music. So much for sleeping late, waking up to the unobstructed view and sounds of the ocean, and enjoying your coffee on the balcony!

Owner's Response: Ms. Eudy - we are terribly sorry that you did not enjoy your vacation. The repairs that were being made to the building were being done to correct a safety issue. It is my understanding that my reservationists attempted to contact you after your email to them to offer to move you and your family to another condo but were unable to reach you by telephone or email. Regarding the needed updates and "missing" Adirondack on the balcony - we, in fact, removed one of the Adirondack's just a couple of days before your arrival as the bolts needed tightening (for safety reasons) and the chair needed painting. We were unable to post new pictures to this website that quickly. Also, we are in the process of updating the bedroom furniture and touching up the interior paint; however, as you can imagine, delivery of new furnishings and painting can be more than a little tricky during the busy summer rental season. These types of updates are typically saved for weeks during late Fall and early Winter. Again, we sincerely apologize that you did not enjoy your stay at Emerald Skye.

Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as expected-everything was nicely furnished, and clean. The beach was pristine and beautiful to watch as it changed it's mood. Close to anything you need. Tha Publix supermarket was perfect for visitors and everything was great. We' ve stayed at condos before and this one was great. I'd recommend the great little zoo, nature parks and the trimaran boat ride in Pensacola, FL.
