About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 Kitchen was remodeled in February 2012 with new cabinets and granite counter tops. It 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 enjoy games of chance, the mini-Vegas of the Gulf Coast is located less than two hours away in Biloxi, Mississippi (directly off of Interstate 10). Heading east, the Pensacola Greyhound Track and Poker Room, located about 30 minutes away, allows for wagering on live races as well as simulcast wagering on horse races from all over the country.

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). And of course, if you care to venture a little further, New Orleans with its historic Bourbon Street and the House of Blues are a little more than three hours away.

One thing is for sure: Visitors to Gulf Shores are never without something exciting to do!

In the immortal words of Elmer Fund, "West and wewaxation at wast"

  • 5 of 5

I've never used this service before but our host was just as helpful as she could be. The condo was warm and welcoming, we needed for nothing and the view was just beautiful! It was just a short walk to the oceans' edge. We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay and hope to come back again soon!
