Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Do you want an affordable Gulf front vacation with great amenities at low prices? Our Condo is for you! With comfy furniture, an new flatscreen tv, and decorated with tasteful nautical decor throughout, our oceanfront corner unit has panoramic views of the beach and Gulf. There is NOTHING between you and the water... Dig your toes into the sugar white sand and relax, or play in the pool! (Heated March-November) This is nicer and more affordable than a hotel!
The corner unit has three extra windows so you have a 180 degree view of the beach and Gulf, from the comfort of your sofa. (Once you step into a corner unit, you won't be able to go back to an interior one! And don't be fooled, only corner units on the 4th, 5th and 6th floors have extra windows...) You can also sit on the private balcony and watch for a glimpse of the dolphins playing in the waves.
Perfect for families and affordable for couples, this one bedroom 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 two TV's, DVD players, stereo, Playstation with games, dvd library, board games, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys there for you to use. Of course there is also a fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer if you need them!
The layout is great for kids. There is a bunk area and dresser in the hallway (my kids love the bunks!) that can be totally shut off from the rest of the unit. There is a door to the private bedroom with a king bed, and a pocket door between the bunk area and living area. Why pay for a two bedroom place, when all you really want is a place where you can put the kids to bed and close a door?!
Emerald Skye is a low density building (only 36 units) so the beach in front doesn't get jam-packed like it does in front of some of those giant high-rises. There is an elevator, covered picnic area, and an outdoor heated pool. Extra storage lockers on the ground floor give you a place to stash sand-covered stuff on your way to and from the beach.
If you aren't familiar with Orange Beach, it is an awesome location. We have a little library of guidebooks and area information in the Condo for you to use. You can golf, shop, parasail, bike and hike in the state park, eat at great restaurants, go to the Blue Angel Museum or the Battleship (getting tired yet?) or you can hang out on the beach all day, and have pizza delivered in at night. The choice is yours!
Want more room to spread out? For almost the same price, check out our 2 Bedroom/2 Bath unit in Gulf shores. (VRBO # 351644). In most cases you can get the two bedroom for only about $100 more!!!!

My husband and I purchased the condo when we lived in Daphne, Alabama. Unfortunately, work took us away and we live in chilly Missouri now... We go down to the condo several time a year with our two children and I enjoy painting and decorating to keep things looking good!
Janet purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Janet chose Orange Beach
There are very few affordable oceanfront units these days, and even fewer on a low density stretch of beach. We loved the unit and the beach from the moment we stepped inside!
What makes this Condo unique
We love the beach, at any time of year. We love watching for dolphins and see them most every day playing around the pier. I am an amatuer photographer, and I am up at sunrise every day taking pictures...My children and husband are tolerant about my photo shoots, as long as I don't expect them to wake up early or pose! Shopping, siteseeing, and eating out are always fun, but for us, it is all about the beach.

We just spent a week at Orange Beach Al. It was simply amazing and we enjoyed every minute. The condo was beautiful and well kept. Comfortable with absolute beachfront. Couldn't have been a prettier place, or more relaxing than this.
This was our third stay in this condo and we absolutely love it! The owners are fantastic to work with. The condo is very clean and nicely furnished. We really like the storage room downstairs. My husband and I bring our bicycles and they just fit in this storage room and we don't have to take them upstairs. The beach is clean and the view is fantastic. Can't wait to return next year.
Repeat visitors are the best compliment! Thanks for writing :) Janet
BEST KEPT SECRET !!!
Emerald Skye 41 is a perfect condo for a beach getaway! It is very clean and has everything you will need while you are here. We got to enjoy dolphins every day from the breathtaking balcony. The beach was exceptionally clean. The homeowners were very nice and helpful with any questions we had. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for making this vacation so special!
So glad you had a good stay! Thanks for taking the time to write!
Loved this condo. It was very clean. The view is beautiful. The owner was very nice & helpful. Only downfall was only 1 parking spot per unit is allowed in the parking lot. This made it hard for us because we had to pull a trailer with DJ equipment in it. Other than that this is the perfect place to stay. Especially on the beach because the complex is not big so they did not have a lot of people on the beach. I will definitely stay here again.
Clean, quiet, and comfortable, but the view was the best of all. Condo is older but has everything you need. Great for two people. Luxurious? No. Would I stay here again? Yes. Linen service only provides one dish cloth and one dish towel so better bring your own if you don't want to go out and buy some. Plenty of bath linens. King size bed was very comfortable with comfortable sheets. Close to a food-only Walmart and two large grocery stores, restaurants. An easy trip to the Pensacola Naval Base, home of the Blue Angels and a wonderful free plane museum. All in all, a great value.
Our stay at Emerald Skye was exceptional. My husband is not a "water lover" and he was converted. The condo was as clean and comfortable as advertised. The kitchen was well stocked and clean, also. The washer and dryer were both clean and we used them both during our stay. The beach was wonderful. The sand a beautiful white, the water so clear and warm. We watched dolphins every morning but one from our balcony. The shade from the pier was wonderful to sit under and enjoy the beach. There is a lot to do in the area. We enjoyed the dolphin cruise, and went to the alligator place just down the road. Next time we plan to take some of our kids and grandkids with us and make a family vacation. I would recommend this condo and Orange Beach to anyone. I just wish I could take my little dogs with me. That was the only draw back for me, but I do understand that not everyone has well-mannered dogs and this could end up being a draw-back.
Too much to do here in Orange Beach! Ziplining, parasailing, dolphin cruises, water parks, go carts, alligator farm, and more... Or you can relax and enjoy the beach while staying a low cost place with all the comforts of home. The choice is yours!
