A Whale of a View! That describes this condo perfectly! As owners of three other properties in Gulf Shores (two houses and one townhouse), we never thought we would own a condo. But that was before we saw this unit. The Whaler condo complex is very small, with only 27 units. There are 7 floors with an elevator to get you to where you want to go. There are 4 units on each floor. The 'D' units span the entire southern part of each floor. With this unit being 5D, you are high enough to have a great view yet low enough to see what is happening below you. Due to the unique architecture of the building, every room in this condo has a great gulf/beach view! I don't think any other condo in Gulf Shores can say that!
When you walk into the unit, you can turn right to pass a separate washer/dryer area on the left and a large pantry on the right. Then you enter the galley kitchen. On the right are the refrigerator, stove and microwave. On the left are the double sinks, dishwasher and rollout trash can. There is a bar behind the sink with three stools. Passing through the kitchen, you come to the dining area with a large table, 6 chairs and a wall of mirror. Turning left between the kitchen and dining area takes you into the living room with seating for 8, 42" HDTV, lots of movies and lots of games for everyone to play. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Note ... it probably goes without saying but sleeper sofas are best for kids ... not very comfortable for adults!!! Of course, there are also sliding glass doors covering the entire wall taking you out onto the large balcony. On the balcony, the west side is open so you have an incredible view and don't feel boxed in. You can also look straight down into the swimming pool! Back in the living room, you can take a hall past the bar stools on your left and the wet bar, yes, wet bar, on your right. That takes you to the three bedrooms, all with queen beds and the third having bunk beds as well. All three have 32" HDTVs and great gulf views. The master bedroom has sliding doors to the balcony. The master bathroom has his/her sinks and lots of counter space and the toilet and jetted tub/shower is behind a separate door. The second bathroom is between the other two bedrooms.
What else can we tell you? Did we mention the full size washer and dryer? Or that the living room and master bedroom have sliding glass doors onto a deck where you can watch the sunrise and sunset? That the condo has a colorful beach decor? That you can sleep as many as 10 in the home? That there is wireless internet throughout the condo? That the entire place has ceramic tile floors. That there are ceiling fans in all rooms? Come see for yourself. You will never want to leave as you think you are in paradise with the views from A Whale Of A View!
If you are like us, sometimes you want peace and quiet and sometimes you want to be where the action is. This condo provides the best of both worlds. If you step out on the beach and go to the west, you will have beach chairs, refreshments, and other amenties. You will be in the middle of the action and can even take a short walk down the beach and eat at Sea and Suds restaurant. If you walk to the east, however, you encounter a different world. The Whaler is very close to the state park. As you walk east, you will see less and less people and will feel like you have the beach to yourself! A short walk to the east will take you to the Gulf State Park. The park is home to the Gulf Start Park Pier which is the longest pier on the Gulf of Mexico at 1,540 feet long!
