Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Awaken each morning to the soothing sound of waves in our unit, just steps away from Orange Beach. We use this unit on a regular basis and have decorated it to be a home away from home for us as well as our renters. In late 2014, we remodeled the kitchen and our master bath with new cabinets and granite counter tops.

Master BR has king bed, Guest BR has queen bed, and two full beds in third BR. All the bedrooms and living room have high definition flat screen TVs with Blu Ray players with internet apps. The living room has a bluetooth connection to the sound bar. We have free wireless internet for our renters. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare that gourmet meal. There is a coffee maker, toaster oven, dishwasher, microwave, stove, garbage disposal refrigerator/freezer/ice maker, blender mixer, pots and pans, utensils, and dinnerware. We have a full sized washer and dryer in the utility room.

Our unit has 1250 sq. ft. which makes for comfort. The 12' X24' patio is probably the most enjoyed aspect of our unit, according to the feedback. It has has a teak table and chairs for six. We have a rattan love seat and chair with ottoman. Our patio is accessible from the living room and master bedroom.

There is a large outdoor pool and children's pool, indoor heated pool and jacuzzi hot tub, indoor cardiac workout gym with television. Additionally, there is a lighted tennis court available. Lounge chairs can be rented on the beach.

About Ric Lewallen

Alice and I (Ric) have been married 40 years and have moved 19 times. We have two grown children and three grandchildren. I served in the Air Force, flying helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. Alice is from Mississippi and went to Belhaven University. Our condo has been a great family gathering place and the source of many great times together over the years.

Ric Lewallen purchased this condo in 1999

Why Ric Lewallen chose Alabama

When we purchased this unit, we knew we liked it, but only after owning it for 19 years, have we come to appreciate the benefits of our location and unit. Our location is less than 1/4 mile from a grocery store and other associated shopping. Now, you don't even have to drive to get sundries; the Dollar General store is across the street. You don't appreciate that until you realize you forgot to bring something. We have a nice indoor pool, hot tub with seating around the pool area. The outdoor pool area is very pleasant for those of us (ie me) who are not as wild about sand. Being located in Central Orange Beach makes access to anything extremely easy.

What makes this condo unique

The size of this unit is excellent for family vacations. The 12'x24' porch is probably one of the best aspects of the unit. It is huge compared to many other units, offers a great view and a sense of privacy that other condos do not have. The large size makes it great for everyone to hang out.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, everything was clean and updated. It is the perfect condo because you can sit in the living room and still see the ocean. The entire facility was very clean and always smelled very nice. I will definitely save this property info to stay here again.

Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything it promised to be.

It was clean, well maintained and most of all very well stocked. Most places have minimal cooking supplies but this was like being at home. Everything worked and was in good condition.

The view was perfect. The balcony sat at least 10 comfortably. The pool area was beautiful and grounds were well maintained. The beach was quite large too.

Would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, I appreciate you taking the time to submit a review. I showed it to my wife, Alice and she smiled about your comments about the stocked kitchen. She loves to cook and likes to have the tools of the trade available when she is at the beach. And yes, we do love our patio! Hope to see you next year! Cheers, ric

Fabulous vacation choice

  • 5 of 5

We saw several condos while we were here and ours was by far the brightest and most open. We had a couple of issues but the owner was always available and took care of things immediately. We will probably rent this same condo next year!

White Caps 804

  • 4 of 5

This condo has become our winter get-away spot. We love the Gulf view and the proximity to groceries and dining. Problems with the dryer controls were quickly addressed by Shane, the maintenance man.

This year we found great frustration with a new thermostat. It didn't allow us control, and it turned on both the heat and the air conditioning without our command., therefore wasting energy. Warm days that allow use of the porch/deck present more comfy seating than the living room!

We also had no light over the stove...very frustrating.

We hope next year might find these issues addressed. Maybe....

Owner's Response: Hi Katie, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry about the thermostat. I checked with our March snowbirds and I think from their insight, we can get it fixed for next year when you come. We will also have the over the stove light fixed. Shane will get a new bulb and I will make sure the light is working after our fall rehab. We are grateful to have you each winter for 7+ years and plan to remove those frustrations for 2018. Cheers, ric
