About the Property
Spacious 2 BR/2 BA oceanfront
Our 1200 square foot condominium feels much larger with its breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico maximized by our double, sliding glass doors which open onto a large tiled balcony. The over-sized master suite has a king sized bed, spacious walk-in closet, and sitting area with private access to the balcony as well as a large picture window overlooking the beach. The master suite also has a flat screen TV and iHome stereo, a private bathroom with double sink vanity, plenty of storage and separate bath area. The guest bedroom is furnished with twin beds, two dressers to keep the clutter to a minimum and private access to a second bathroom, shared with the living area. Along with its awesome view, the living room offers a queen pullout sofa, large flat screen TV with DVD and cable, Xbox and stereo system/CD player. The bright, L-shaped kitchen has ample counter and cabinet space for all that you need as well as a popcorn popper, toaster, blender, automatic coffee maker, new appliances and is fully stocked with new pans and cooking gear(replaced spring 2015). Luxurious linens await you at the end of your day, with high thread-count sheets, plush pillows, fluffy towels, and pillow top mattress covers(replaced spring 2015).
Outside, you will find a large L-shaped, beachfront pool with a corner fountain and expansive decking perfect for sunbathing, reading a good book and watching the kids play in the water. The pool extends underneath the condo to provide relief from the sun with picnic tables and seating in the shade, and poolside bathrooms are convenient for swimmers and beach combers with sandy feet. Guests have access to two charcoal grills for grilling fresh seafood or hamburgers and hotdogs for your picnic by the pool. Our fifth floor balcony is directly above the pool and perfect for calling down when dinner is ready or monitoring older children in the pool or on the beach. Check out our new porch furniture in the last picture, made from recycled milk containers but sturdy enough to feel like wood!
At the end of the day, or during pop-up thunderstorms, there is plenty of space to spread out(and stay dry) on the spacious balcony or in the master suite, while the kids enjoy a movie in their room or battle on the Xbox. We have also provided our guests with board games, paperback books and puzzles for added relaxation.
There are several options for dining on the beach within steps from our condo, and a leisurely 20 minute stroll along the shore will take you to the Alabama State pier, where you can rent fishing gear, buy bait and catch Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Red Snapper, to name a few. When walking down the beach in either direction, you will appreciate the wide open, under populated beaches in front of our condominium. The low density complexes on either side of our 36-unit Castaways complex provide our guests with the ability to spread out and relax without having to claim their spot on the beach every morning. Guests may use our sun umbrella and beach chairs or may choose to rent lounge chair with built-in umbrellas daily on the beach. Also included for our guests’ enjoyment are boogie boards, beach blankets, pool toys, sand toys, kites and bocce ball set. Once you stay with us, you will wonder why you ever looked elsewhere! Come put your toes in the sand….

Gulf Shores is a wonderful vacation town with an endless supply of things to see and do! Explore all that awaits you!
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Our family likes to vacation in a relaxed setting while maintaining the utmost in comfort. We are just as busy as everyone else these days, but we put aside time to get away from the stresses of every day life as a family. We hope that your family enjoys our home away from home as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We fell in love with Gulf Shores a few years ago and decided to buy this particular condominium because of the wide open beaches in front of the unit, the pool, workout room, and close proximity to many local attractions. The kids LOVE to visit The Hangout where you can get a foot-tall milkshake while watching the wait staff dance on the tables when certain songs are played. Also a short walk to the pier for excellent fishing, year-round and several beachfront restaurants are steps away when you want to dine out!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The double, sliding glass doors in our condo open up wide and seem to bring the ocean indoors. The floor plan allows us all to spread out at the end of the day and awaken on different schedules early in the morning to watch the seagulls while drinking our coffee. The spacious kitchen allows the cook plenty of space and upgraded amenities so that cooking on vacation doesn't seem like a chore. The dehumidifier also makes the inside air so refreshing after baking in the sun all day at the beach!
