THE CONDO:

1. The 'BEST OF THE BEACH CLUB'.

2. Direct Gulf Front.

3. Views of the beach, dolphins and sunsets from the 17th floor of Bristol Tower.

4. Glass door walls in the Living Room and Master Bedroom lead to the spacious deck.

5. Large tile balcony for prime Gulf viewing and relaxation.

6. 3 Bedrooms and 3 Full Baths; 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Double Twin (Convertible to King) - Sleeps 6.

7. Pack-n-Play and High Chair for toddlers.

8. Bamboo wood floors and continuously updated décor.

9. Fully equipped gourmet Kitchen.

10. Wireless high speed internet and 100 channel Cable HD Smart TV.

11. Completely remodeled walk-in showers in two bathrooms.

12. Huge selection of beach toys and equipment.

13. In-unit washer and dryer.

You will be coming for the sugar sand beach and all it offers. But . . . at the end of the day you will need to go home. Here you will end your day in the same luxury and comfort as your own home.

WE DECORATED JUST FOR YOU. Bamboo hardwood floors bring warmth, a feeling of home. A variety of area rugs provide interest and color. The furniture says, sit down and relax. Two full sized leather recliners are perfect for your afternoon or evening siesta. A brand new sofa adds comfortable seating for your group. We've even thought of flat screen HD TV's with DVD players in every room.

The MASTER BEDROOM SUITE brings the same attention to detail. Bright and cheery decor complements the ocean views from your bedroom. You will crawl up on the platform King bed and snooze to the sound of the Gulf surf. You will doze off watching cable TV or your favorite DVD'S that you bring along.

From the Master Suite walk directly into the PRIVATE MASTER BATH. Store your clothes in the walk-in closet. Store your personal items in the huge double vanity with tons of drawers. Forget bringing your hairdryer - we've got one. Best yet, enjoy the new huge walk-in glass shower complete with adjustable handheld shower and sit down bench seat.

You have choices in Bedroom #2. We normally set it up as twin beds because lots of you have kids that don't want to sleep together. But . . . IF YOU WANT ANOTHER KING BED, YOU'VE GOT IT. We can change the twin beds into a King bed. Just let us know and its yours. Lots of closets and drawers. Bedroom #2 also has a private bath for your convenience. Lots of space, hair dryer . . . just like every bath in the unit, and beautifully decorated tub with shower. We just removed the sliding glass shower door to make it easy to bathe your toddler.

Bedroom #3 is a bright cozy Queen setting with lots of closet space. You'll need to cross the hallway to the bathroom. Once there you will be greeted by a large remodeled ceramic walk-in shower and the same hairdryer and amenities of the other baths.

We haven't forgotten that tiny youngster in your group. We keep a Pack-n-Play and an adjustable high chair in the closets so you don't have to bring them along.

Some of you like to cook and eat in . . others won't consider it. It's vacation. Our GIANT KITCHEN is here for both of you. You will have EVERYTHING YOU NEED. From coffee grinder to lobster pot, from toaster to blender, from electric mixer to counter top grill and every utensil you can imagine, you've got it all. Plus your choice of where to eat...right at the kitchen counter, while relaxing on the deck or at the large dining room table.

The large IN-UNIT WASHER & DRYER LET YOU TRAVEL LIGHT, especially with kids. Just throw in a load on the way to the beach and clean clothes will be waiting when you return

SURPRISE BONUS! The outside owners closet is home to beach supplies. We started it and some of our guests have added to the collection. Beach chairs, umbrella, rafts, toys.... a little of eveything. HELP YOURSELF during your stay. Definitely don't bring sand toys, pails. shovels or boogie boards for the kids. They're all here.

BEST OF THE BEST! That's our goal. We'll work to deliver.

About Daryl Raabe

We live here in our other unit 4 months each year. While here, this rental receives the same loving care as our own. You'll fall in love with the bamboo floors and light, cheery updated decor.

Fishing is my passion and if you are interested, I'll be glad to help you get started here on Fort Morgan.

Daryl Raabe purchased this condo in 2005

Why Daryl Raabe chose Gulf Shores

A 3 day visit with a friend at Beach Club did it all. We have literally traveled the world, yet this was the first place we found for our second home. It has it all; luxurious comfortable accommodations, world class sugar sand beaches, fishing, golf, hiking, historical sights. You name it, its here. Top it off with the GREAT people of Alabama. They have embraced us Yankee visitors as guests and friends.

What makes this condo unique

Beach Club is a resort destination. Forget the side-by-side strip condos of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Forget sharing your beach with everybody and anybody. Forget fighting the traffic on the beach highway. Instead, when you take the 12 mile drive down Fort Morgan Road to The Beach Club, you enter a world of your own. A sign will greet you with the message, 'RELAX, YOU ARE HERE'. If you want to park your car for a week and go nowhere, you can. This gated complex has it all and you share it only with other Beach Club guests.

The unmatched beauty of The Beach Club hits you with your first look down from our 17th floor deck. You see the 5 outdoor pools, each with it's own kiddie pool and hot tub. A boardwalk sits atop our natural beach dunes. Swings offer a place to just sit and enjoy the surf view. A short walk down the 3 meandering boardwalks brings you to over 20 uninterrupted miles of pristine white sugar sand beach.

Our 'Club' membership provides access to the central Clubhouse on a daily fee basis. Here you find a heated indoor pool, exercise complex, sauna, steam room, lockers and showers, towel service, children's game room, and access to the large club outdoor pool with its own bar and grill service (seasonable).

Dining is another pleasure. If you like to cook your own food, stock up on groceries in town and prepare them in our gourmet equipped Kitchen. If you're on vacation and cooking is for someone else, it's all right here. The Coast Restaurant in the Clubhouse offers exquisite lunches and dinners accompanied with panoramic views of the Gulf. The Village Hideaway provides grilled specialty lunches, dinners, sports entertainment and great craft beers. During peak season The Front Lawn offers food trucks and entertainment for fun, casual summer evenings. The Village Creamery takes care of your sweet tooth for breakfast bakery and a variety of ice cream dishes. The unlimited variety of Gulf Shores cuisine is only 20 minutes away.

Perfect getaway! Incredible views from room. Everything was so nice.

  • 5 of 5

I spent two amazing weeks at this condo relaxing. It couldn’t have been cleaner or more comfortable. The views from the living room/kitchen and also the master bedroom cannot be beat. Plus the owners are extremely accommodating. The beach is gorgeous, of course, with its white soft sand. Great for long walks. My sons, age 18 and 20, along with their girlfriends, came for several days as well. The kids loved going to the pool and hot tub both of which were large and nice. One of my sons is a fisherman so this was an ideal spot for him. He caught a fish about every other time he cast. Nothing huge but enough to keep him hopeful. He did snag a stingray which was exciting for him but also multiple catfish, pompano, lady fish, and blue fish. The guy near us caught a very large pompano so my son was inspired. All of this happened right in front of the condos. My other son went to the workout center faithfully which kept him happy. It rained one afternoon so they all went to Gulf Shores shopping. Our favorite place to eat was Tacky Jacks because of the amazing views. In Gulf Shores, the kids loved Bahama Bobs. If you like to run and the beach is too challenging like me, you can probably find a mile of jogging area around the condos. Just down the road is Pine Beach Trail. I ran it several times. It is about 2.5 miles but there are all sorts of off-shoots so you could make it 6 miles or more if you included all the trails. Just remember your bug spray. The wooded areas are bug-filled but then you will run in open areas by lakes. Very private and nice. Overall, a fantastic break! We will be back!

Beautiful view - clean and well decorated condo

  • 4 of 5

We headed down to the Gulf Shores for a long weekend and found this condo at a great price! A couple hours after booking it, the owner, Daryl called me himself to learn a little bit about our group and tell us about the area and their place. I was super impressed and felt we would be well taken care of! It's the little things that really make a big difference!

The condo was well decorated, spacious and clean. It was nice that they had sand toys, chairs and umbrellas so we didn't have to pack yet another thing! We've rented a lot off of VRBO and usually there are some items left in the condos from people before you...sandwich baggies, foil, paper products, some spices. Random things that you need but don't pack or buy if you're just there a few days. There was absolutely nothing like that left behind here. It wasn't a big deal but it was a surprise and we did need to go out and buy a few items. Also, the beds were VERY firm...I think a mattress topper would be helpful.

We had a wonderful time though and appreciate all the help Daryl and Nancy provided along the way!

Owner's Response: We're always thrilled when our guests have a good time. It's also nice to hear that our extra attention is appreciated. These guests came early in the season right after our annual deep cleaning. That's probably why they didn't find any left-overs. We advise our guests not to expect them because we don't know if anything will be there. Beds seem to be one area we can't always be right. Some like them hard and others soft. Our mattresses are all relatively new and were intentionally selected to be firm. We're sorry that wasn't the right choice for this group. Once you select a soft one, it can never be made firmer. We will definitely consider the suggestion of a mattress topper in the future. Thanks for the comment.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect.

1st- safe

2nd-clean these first 2 is always a priority!

The view was perfect, it is so relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset and sunrise. I was amazed at all the kitchen utensils available. With all the fresh seafood and produce available, they came in very handy. I want bathrooms/shower like that in my house (very nice)! The owner called to check on us and see if we desired anything, wow. It truly was a perfect place. Roomy, functional, elegant, there were books and games available. It had a special touch to it. We will return!

Beautiful Condo was Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo worked great for our family of four plus one guest. It was clean, well-kept and provided us all (two adults and three teenagers) with more than adequate space to relax and enjoy our vacation. I especially loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the ocean as I read my book or played card games with my family. We didn't get to swim in the ocean because it was double red flags almost every day but we did enjoy some sunbathing and our morning beach walks to find shells and other treasures. Given the cooler temperatures and the spring break crowd (family friendly), the heated clubhouse pool was a busy place. The unheated pools in front of each tower were just a little too cool for us. However, we did enjoy many trips to the hot tubs throughout the complex. Overall, we were very happy with the condo and thank Daryl and Nancy for their hospitality. The location was great for us because we enjoyed being away from the spring break chaos in Gulf Shores. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a home away from home in the Gulf Shores area.

Owner's Response: We always feel bad when the weather doesn't cooperate for our guests. It's the one place where we have no control. The unusually strong rip tides made it dangerous to be in the water. When the beach and the water is the main reason you came, that's bad. We were on-site during this Guest's stay. We had hoped to get to drop in and meet them. Unfortunately they were so busy, we never got the chance. They were out enjoying all that the Gulf Shores area has to offer. We thank them for this very honest review of their visit and hope to have them back again to enjoy the surf that they missed.

Great Condo and Owners

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we could tell the condo was as pictured and was very clean as well. Everything you need to cook and prepare meals was on hand. All of the furnishings and the condo itself, was in very good or excellent condition and the condo was decorated very nicely.

Daryl and Nancy went above and beyond to make sure we were welcomed and had everything we needed for a great stay. They included a very detailed welcome pack that had suggestions on all the activities in the area with recommendations on who to use, and the best places to eat. These recommendations are spot on and included many places we have enjoyed over the last 15 years visiting the area and some we had never tried (we did try some of the places we had never went to and loved each one).

We indeed felt at home from the start.

Thank you Daryl and Nancy for being great hosts. We hope to be able to stay with you again soon.

Children love the outdoor playground with slides and climbing equipment, poolside games and activities (seasonal) where they make friends for the rest of their stay, friendly competition on the basketball and sand volleyball courts, and the beach where waves, boogey boards and sand castles head the list. Adults start the day with walks on the beach or the many paths right here on the property. Serious hikers and nature lovers head to nearby Bon Secour Wildlife preserve for its miles of undisturbed nature trails. Golfers have their choice of 3 topnotch courses, all within 20 minutes from the front door. Fishermen wade out into the surf right in front of the condo or charter with one of the great captains of the area. Historians visit Fort Morgan, site of critical Civil War battles. And....if you really need the crowds, Gulf Shores offers all the shopping, dining and tourist attractions you can imagine just 20 minutes away.
