About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 to 6)

Direct view Gulf-front condominium on the sugar-white sand of Orange Beach, Alabama, just a few short miles down the beach from Perdido Key, Florida.

Our complex is located within 5 miles of The Wharf's Amphitheater, shops, restaurants, fishing charters and dolphin cruises.

EMERALD SKYE, Unit 61 is a beautiful, top floor corner unit with spectacular gulf front views, both from the balcony and east side windows. Large private balcony, carpeted bedroom and tile throughout.

This is a top (7th) floor, corner unit that offers a Gulf-front vacation with great amenities at an affordable price. This unit has direct gulf views that overlook some of the whitest beaches in America. Decorated in tropical decor, our oceanfront, top corner unit has panoramic views of the beach and Gulf. Sit on your private balcony and watch the charter boats leave the Perdido Pass after a picture perfect sunrise while drinking your coffee or just watch the dolphins feeding and playing in the Gulf in front of you.

This top floor, corner unit has three extra windows facing east so you have a 180 degree view of the beach and Gulf. In addition to the direct Gulf front views of the beach and gulf from the balcony, there are unobstructed views east toward the Perdido Pass and Perdido Key. There is no comparison of the views from this unit to other condos that do not have side viewing exterior windows.

This is a one bedroom (king-size bed), one bathroom plus two bunk beds that are perfect for the families with small children and with the affordable rental price makes the condo excellent for couples. The queen size sofa sleeper in the living area makes this condo a great choice for up to four adults and two children. Well equipped kitchen, including a washer and dryer if you need them!

The bunk bed area in the hallway can be totally closed off from the living area and master bedroom. There is a door to the private bedroom with a king-sized bed, and a pocket door between the bunk area and living area. Why pay extra for a two bedroom condo or hotel room, when you can put the kids to bed and close a door for privacy.

The maximum sleeping area for adults is four (4).

This unit is a non-smoking unit except on the balcony (with balcony door and window closed)!! Sorry, no pets permitted.

High Speed Wireless Internet included

Guestbook comments from the owner

September 4-8, 2006

"It has been said that if you have a stress-free vacation that you add 7 more years to your life. Thanks for all the added years for us. This was so nice. It didn't even matter that it rained one day. It was so peaceful and quiet around here. The bright, colorful decor just makes you cheerful! We hadn't been to this area in several years. It was much better than we remembered. Thanks for sharing your lovely condo with us. Our vacation was wonderful!"

"Icing on the cake"

  • 5 of 5

We love coming to Orange Beach & staying at Emerald Skye. We wouldn't consider coming, unless we could be on the beach & enjoy the ocean. We have watched dolphins from our balcony, and this year for the first time in 5 years, we saw numerous stingrays close to the

water's edge. We have found people to be friendly, helpful, and honest. The golf courses we

play on are near by, and the state park is less than a mile away. We rode more than 60 miles on the park trails, bringing our own bicycles this year.

We have tried numerous restaurants, and have our favorites. Every year we try 3 to 4 new ones; and we love to cook fresh shrimp, scallops, red snapper, and tilapia in the condo.

Nothing is more relaxing than walking the beach, and sitting under the umbrella listening to the ocean waves. The lighted pier next door is the icing on the cake for us. We'll be back next year! Frank & Sharon Neal

Gorgeous Stay, Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at 61 Emerald Skye numerous times over the past 7 years and have never been disappointed, save when the weather didn't cooperate (we usually visit off-peak season). This stay was no exception. It's a lovely spot and we had a wonderful time.

The condo is on the top floor, so there's never a risk of being awakened/disturbed by a thumpasaurus above you, and it's bright and airy, with beautiful views of the gulf.

Kathy Robinson has been a delight to rent from. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed that “beautiful white sand “beach experience!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy’s clean convenient condo once again did not disappoint! The location to the beach, to local grocery stores and eateries is hard to beat. Everything you need for your vacation is close at hand! The “extra” little storage room with beach chairs and toys for the kids also served as a great place to keep our bikes which we brought along and enjoyed the many miles of bike/hiking trails in and around the state park. We plan on returning again next year and we would recommend this delightful condo to anyone looking for that “white sandy beach” experience!

Wonderful winter getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at this condo and first winter experience in Orange Beach. The condo was very clean. The view is absolutely amazing. We watched the dolphins play every morning. You seriously can't go wrong staying here! Kathy is wonderful to work with. Can't wait to come back!
