About The Owner

I started coming to Gulf Shores back in the early 1980's as a high school student with my family. I later introduced my wife, Dawn, to the area and she fell in love with it as well. We have two beautiful daughters, Isabella and Gabrielle. Since that time we have owned a number of condominiums in the area over the years. We currently reside locally in Craft Farms Golf community.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Orange Beach

We love the location of Tidewater. It is just west of Perdido Pass, directly on the beach. It is beautiful sitting on the balcony and watching the boats go in and out of the Pass. The complex is walking distance to several restaurants. The complex also offers great amenities which include indoor/outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna, fitness room and a lighted barbeque area. Come and enjoy the wide beach and surf.

What makes this condo unique

The white sand beaches, the Gulf of Mexico and incredible climate! Need we say more?

My husband and I recently had a terrible experience at this unit. While we were down at the beach, our room was broken into. All of our cash and my medication was stolen. I immediately contacted the owner to inform him of this. I asked when the code was changed and to my surprise, it had not been very recent. I was shocked that someone other than the renters and the owner had the room code. The owner contacted the cleaning agency. Long story short, it was a nephew of the lady that cleaned the room. We have pressed charges, however, nothing has been done up to this point. It is a very frightening feeling to find out someone had access to come into that room at anytime. I am so disappointed because this is a very nice condo. The owner did change the code after it happened but it was a little too late. We left a day early as I felt very uncomfortable, even after the code was changed. More than likely, we will never get the money back but I felt I needed to write this review to make others aware. If I rented this unit, I would ask that the code be changed after housekeeping leaves.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week, great place, was exactly like the pictures and descriptions that were posted. Owner was very easy to work with and very prompt. Great location within the condo complex itself and within Orange Beach. Grounds and pools very well maintained. Would definitely recommend it and would consider returning.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month in this condo and were so happy that we hope to stay in the same condo next year! The appliances are top notch, loved the granite tops in the kitchen and bathroom and, of course, the view of the ocean can't be beat! We also like the location of Tidewater. Best of all is the owner and how easy he is to work with and how quickly he responds to our e-mails. We'd give this condo our highest recommendation.
