What makes this condo unique

We have put in all new appliances. New Stove, Washer and Dryer and we put in new carpet. We are looking to get more comfortable with our guests who come here for 8 weeks a year. This is our home for 10 months per year; ie, we are beginning to feel more comfortable leaving more convenience items - (Upgraded IT and art). WE would like for this place to feel more like a B & B, but without the cook. When we were renters, before we became landlords, a major inconvenience was a trip to the store upon arrival, at peak hours to get BASICS (salt, pepper, detergent, condiments, etc.) Patsy, our rental advisor, has assured us that these basic supplies will be left by the maid service for our guests, as we have intended. If you use up the last of something, please replace it before you leave. WE would like to pay this convenience forward. WE are in the process of upgrading, and we would like to leave more 'good stuff'.

Very clean

  • 3 of 5

This condo was really clean and homey. We had an issue with WIFI and cable. We arrived Saturday and it was not fixed until Thursday. Not a big deal to a few of our group but others couldn't survive without it 🙂? plenty of dishes and many beach towels. All new appliances.

Condo unit was fine - large deck was great

  • 4 of 5

Everything about the condo unit itself was fine. I have stayed at other condos in Orange Beach that had a fenced in area to store beach stuff (chairs, toys, etc.). I noticed at other units on our floor had all their beach items were stored in the hallway. When they left there was probably a full bucket of sand spread all over the hallway. The only downside to this unit is that it is too close to the pool. There was a baseball tournament going on in Orange Beach while we were there so the pool was full and noisy most of the time.

Poorly maintained with misrepresented amenities and in need of a thourough cleaning

  • 1 of 5

Would give 0 stars- Upon entering the condo we see a sign taped on the sliding door in the master stating that it is broken not to use it & the parts will be in this week, that sign has been there for a while because someone who stayed in May mentioned it in their review as well. The biggest problem we had was the electric grill that they’re so proud of offering was so poorly maintained that once we started it up to get hot, all of the drippings and crud that was in the bottom of it burst into flames and had to be doused with water. Had my husband not been a firefighter for 7 years and known how to handle the situation, I have no doubt it would’ve caught the building on fire. The entire patio was covered with greasy, clumps of burned food that we did our best to clean but ended up having a slippery patio all week. Several lamps had burned bulbs and since there are no lights in the fans we had to put our own bulbs in to have light. One bedroom tv wasn’t working due to an error message that needed a roku reset and our request for assistance from Patsy went unanswered. In addition, almost every dish, pan and utensil was dirty in the kitchen which probably had a lot to do with the fact that the dishwasher sounded like a jackhammer when it ran and didn’t thoroughly clean dishes. The washing machine had mold in the seal and around the drum which caused the clothes to smell terrible even after washing in hot water. The dining area was crowded with a home office tower, stacks of papers, a fax machine and various personal items, the vents and return air grates were furry with dust as was most of the decor. Drawers in bedrooms and in kitchen were stuffed with papers and junk (personal items) so weren’t usable. I can go on and on but you get the idea. This condo definitely did not give us the “getaway from everyday life, vacation in luxury” style that the ad suggests. Oh, the indoor pool and hot tub were closed for the season but were advertised as an amenity as well. We absolutely loved the location and the beach but would never stay here again. We attempted to contact Patsy several times and even tried to find other accommodations but of course had no luck in peak season, last minute. She finally offered to have the unit cleaned but it was honestly too late- we had no interest in having a cleaner in who should have already done all these things so we cleaned most of it ourselves. Do yourself a favor and don’t stay here. Not worth the money or the hassle.

Blue Water has a nice family atmosphere, and is located perfectly!

  • 4 of 5

Blue Water seems to be an older facility, but well kept by staff and currently undergoing some improvements to the indoor pool area so no hot tub or exercise room, but since we had perfect weather, that wasn’t a problem for our family. Unit 204 was comfortable and the view was great! There are a couple of palm trees at balcony level, but they did not obstruct our view and the large balcony was our favorite place. We could still see the gorgeous view of the beach! I’m not a clean freak, but this unit could use a deep cleaning (dusty lampshades, thick layer of dust beneath the sofa and many of the dishes in cabinets and silverware had dried food remains. The beds were comfortable except that the sheets were a little worn and “nubby”. The owners had personal items in the dinning area, like office supplies and a fax machine that seemed out of place in a vacation rental. We had a couple of issues with the sliding glass doors and a toilet that needed a new seal, but Patsy was great about getting someone over quickly to take care of the problem. The kitchen was overstocked with dishes and not well organized, which left no place to store our groceries. I know that it sounds like we were not happy with our stay, but this is truly just intended to be constructive criticism. The floor plan utilized every square inch and our group of six adults and two little guys had plenty of room! We would stay there again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. It has plenty of room plus the spacious balcony with a grill. The second floor is great especially if you don't want to wait on the elevator. The three bedrooms would sleep 8 easily. They have all kinds of little extras that really help make it feel like a home instead of a rental. We would definitely rent here again.

The only negative was only two bathrooms. Would have been great to have three.

  • 5 of 5

Patsy was very helpful and answered every question that we had concerning our trip. Bluewater is a great location near everything. Being located on the 2nd floor made it so easy to go back and forth to the pool and the beach. The condo had everything that we needed.
