Direct gulf front beach condo located in the most desirable area of Gulf Shores. Only a short walk to shopping, restaurants, nightly entertainment, including the infamous Hangout and annual Music Festivals. Right next to public beach for direct views of annual Fourth of July fireworks display. Views of the beautiful sugar-white sands and blue waters don’t get any better than this. Watch breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from your own balcony. Schools of dolphins can be spotted from the balcony swimming close to the beach. Unit has cable TV and free wireless access.

The master bedroom features a king size bed, room darkening drapes for sleeping late, private bath, flat screen TV with DVD player, and a great view of the Gulf. The second bedroom features a queen size bed, private bath, flat screen TV and DVD player. The queen-size sleeper sofa in the Living Room extends total sleeping capacity to 6.

The updated kitchen is fully equipped so you can let the chef in you emerge. There’s a large breakfast bar as well as separate pub table and stools, microwave, and apartment size washer and dryer right off the kitchen.

Building amenities include an exercise room located on the first floor, a large swimming pool and deck chair area, a separate kiddy pool for the little folks, and an ocean front gazebo with a barbeque grilling area, and a shaded picnic area under the building next to the pool. Umbrella and beach chair rentals are available on the beach in the summer months.

Vacationers to Gulf Shores are blessed with limitless possibilities when it comes to things to do and see.

If golf is your passion, be sure to take advantage of one or all of the nine incredibly beautiful area courses. Deep sea fishing charters are available year round. Many choose to fish from the beach or local pier, as well as many backwater areas where the fish are always biting. If you enjoy biking, Gulf Shores is a rider’s paradise. Bring your own or rent one from a local shop.

If shopping is your thing, you are only a short drive up Hwy 59 to the Tanger Outlet Mall, the largest shopping outlet in the area, as well as numerous great small boutiques and shops.

If you are a history buff and have your children with you, there are several wonderful possibilities. Less than 90 minutes away on Mobile Bay off Interstate 10 is the historic Battleship USS Alabama and Submarine USS Drum. In Pensacola, the National Naval Aviation Museum at the Naval Air Station is well worth the trip. Even closer is historic Fort Morgan less than 30 minutes away on Fort Morgan Road (Hwy 182). One thing is for sure: Visitors to Gulf Shores are never without something exciting to do!

**** As of May 2017 parking is not included in pricing. Parking is purchased upon arrival and cost $27.75 with tax....good for entire stay****

Great accommodations and transaction from all aspects

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice....just as displayed in the pictures. It was clean, and all details as described. Communications were addressed promptly, and the refund of our deposit was timely. The beach access and balcony view were great! I definitely would stay there again if the occasion arises that we go back!

Quiet and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the beach for over 20 years and this was the best beach experience we have ever had. This was our first visit to Gulf Shores, AL and it will be our beach of choice from now on. The condo was beautiful and was exactly as stated in the ad. Check in was easy, access to the room was easy and beach access was very easy. Loved the beach side balcony view. Had my morning coffee there each day. We went the 3rd week in August so we missed most of the crowd thank goodness but even with the crowd I think would still be a better choice for beach travelers. You are very close to great restaurants and entertainment at Islands Winds West. We saw tons of Dolphins as we sat on the beach. Could not believe it. They jumped and played and chased schools of fish out of the water right in from of us. Have never seen that at other beaches. I think the only thing I did not like was the bed in the master bedroom was very firm. Other than that everything was awesome. We absolutely fell in love with this area and condo. We hope to come back to this same condo next year, but might need a 3 bedroom because more of our family wants to come with us!

Owner's Response: Hi Elaine I'm so glad your first trip to the area was a great one. Now you know our little secret.... best beaches! It's so fun watching the dolphins frolic in the water. They do play around here quite often... This complex is in a great location close to so much activities but it's so peaceful sitting on the balcony. mattresses are on the way... and some remodeling is going to be done next month..... I would love to be able to help you again next year. Just let me know Thanks again Jodi

Family Fun in Gulf Shores

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a good time in gulf shores July 15 - 21, 2017. The condo was really nice, had everything we needed and was in a good location. Jelly Fish were really bad at the beach the last few days of our stay so had to swim in the pool, but other than that, it was an enjoyable

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the condo. I try to have most everything that is needed in the condo for your stay. Sorry about the jellyfish... with the tropical storm that hit central Florida it pushed them this way. We'll just have to have a talk with Mother Nature about that! Thanks again for staying here and just let me know when you want to come back. Jodi

Very nice location and friendly staff. Great response fron management company.

  • 3 of 5

Nice location. Overall condo was well stocked but not really our needs. No dining table. Two stools at bar and two at small table. I like hard shower streams and soft beds. Condo offered the opposite. Very soft stream of water in master shower and very hard squeaky mattress. Had to move to guest bed to sleep.
