About the property

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!!!!

About Janet

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.

Great location. Great view. Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and the condo was great. The view was great amd the time we went the beach was not at all crowded. Being next to a long boardwalk was awesome as it provided convenient shade. Everything you need is at this condo. Thank you for letting us rent it. We would definitely go back to this location. The owners provide great communication throughout the process

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.

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!
