Property type condo

About the property

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

Update Feb 2018: Fall 2017 was a key upgrade season for our condo. We have owned our condo for 18.5 years and have made a conscious decision to keep the condo as we would want it to be when we come to the beach. In Fall 2017, we invested all our 2017 rental income and then some to: 1) install plank tile throughout the condo, 2) repaint the entire unit, walls and trim, 3) replace H-VAC unit, 4) replace refrigerator. We hope you will enjoy the improvements, as we plan to do!

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.

Master BR has a king bed, Guest BR 1 has a queen bed, and Guest BR 2 has two full beds. All of 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. Alice, my wife, loves to cook and makes sure the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a great meal. There is a coffee maker, toaster oven, dishwasher, microwave, stove, garbage disposal, refrigerator w/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 a comfortable stay at the beach. The 12' X24' patio is probably the most enjoyed aspect of our unit, according to the feedback. It 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.

Our condo has 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. Note: the lawn chairs are operated and maintained by an independent vendor not associated with our condo or the association. To reserve chairs on the beach, you must go to the beach and speak directly with the vendor.

About Ric Lewallen

Alice and I (Ric) have been married 41 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 Orange Beach

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.

We had a wonderful time in the condo and the beach! We'll be back!!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed, especially in the kitchen. Being right on the beach was such a plus and there are lots of activities close by that were fun for all of our young adult "kids". We didn't feel crowded at all even though there were 8 of us!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed with lots of other family members, renting four condos altogether. This one was my favorite. It's very roomy and clean. The patio is very big, and you can't hear much from adjoining condos from either inside this condo or from the patio. The owner is very responsive. Great vacation!

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.
