About Leah White

We are two people who grew up in New Iberia, LA and Lake Charles, LA respectively. Our families have traveled to and enjoyed Orange Beach for 20 years. It was time for us to invest in the area and property we love so much. Having spent so many seasons on this beach in so many different condos, we recognized special when we stayed at Escapes. It is so much more spacious then any condo we have ever stayed in. When you spend a week or more in a condo with eight other people, you need space! One of our sisters and her husband, Matt, bought a condo here two years ago. It was our turn. We are very excited about our beautiful condo and look forward to sharing it with you.

Leah White purchased this condo in 2012

Why Leah White chose Orange Beach

Space, space and space. Everyone has their space. The view from this corner unit is stunning. Sunrises and sunsets are incredible. With a good glass of wine or hot cup of coffee on the balcony, you will fall in love with this place.

What makes this condo unique

We have kept our unit current with modern decorations and amenities including new beds, bedspreads, ungraded linens and towels, fully furnished kitchen with all the nick nacks, upgraded ceiling fans and kitchen lights. This is not your 'standard' rental unit. It is our home away from home!

Quick Family Vaca

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had a great, but too short, trip to Orange Beach to wrap up summer and really enjoyed the great unit! The owner was wonderful to work with and the unit was large, clean, and well-appointed. I originally scheduled for Columbus Day weekend and was forced to cancel due to Hurricane Nate. Leah was more than understanding and allowed us to reschedule to a later weekend. A great unit and a great owner compels me to rate condo 5 stars!!

Owner's Response: Hi Brian - thanks for the 5 star review. I just believe in treating everyone the way I would want to be treated. I travel using VRBO properties too so I know the difference between a positive owner experience and a negative one. Glad you had a nice time. Hope to see you again. Thanks for staying. Leah

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay we had in this condo. Check in was a breeze and the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The condo is HUGE! Kitchen stocked with all the dishes and cookware/barware we needed. Very nice layout. Plenty of seating spaces for family game time. Great view from the balcony. Elevator service was great - never had to wait. Large laundry room situated away from everything. LOVED this place - hated to leave - will be coming back! Thanks Leah!

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy - Thank you for the great review. I strive really hard to make my guests' vacations as easy and enjoyable as possible. You were a pleasure to work with and I hope to have you back as guests again in the future. All of the extensive renovations to the exterior of the building will be complete by the end of the year so the whole complex will be as pretty as the interior of my condo. Thanks again - Leah

Spacious with fantastic amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group of 4 couples. It is very spacious with open floor plan and large kitchen with plenty of seating. The check in was very easy and all the staff on property were helpful and pleasant. The building was under some unexpected construction during our stay but the owner was very forthright about that and gave us the chance to cancel our booking as soon as she was aware of it. Because of the construction, we were unable to use the balcony or outdoor pool, but the unit had great ocean views from inside and the other amenities were the best I've experienced in a vacation rental. The beach was fantastic and there were restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely stay again on future visits to Gulf Shores.

Owner's Response: Hi Mary - Thank you for your kind review. I just try to treat my guests as I would want to be treated and it all begins with honesty. I'm glad you all were able to enjoy my home even with the construction mess going on outside. Next year it will all be over and the complex will be better than ever! See you then! Leah

Breathtaking view and amazing unit

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite beach trip ever. We had a party of 7 staying in this amazing unit. From the moment we walked in, we knew that it was going to be a first class stay. The lobby staff was very helpful and friendly. Everyone was comfortable and had plenty of room. The unit was immaculate and very well stocked. All of the amenities were a bonus. We loved being only steps away from the beach. The balcony had some shade at any point of the day. Very well laid out! Great location to local restaurants and entertainment. The owner was very responsive and pleasant to work with. Will definitely stay here again.

Sincerely,

Dovie MacPherson

Owner's Response: Hi Dovey - Thank you for the very nice review. I'm glad guests see my condo and the Orange Beach area the way I do. It's just that beautiful and October through May are the perfect months to visit because it's not as hot. I really do try to have everything a guest would need to make their stay relaxing and enjoyable, especially in the kitchen. The condo itself is wonderfully spacious giving everyone room to spread out. And yes, the views are special. Come back and see us soon. Thanks again - Leah

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Escapes to the Shores Unit 1405 was a great place to stay for our Labor Day trip with friends. It was nice to have three bedrooms with king size beds. And the shower in the mater bathroom was awesome! I wish I had one like that at my own home. The condo was large...I mean really large. The bedrooms, hallways, laundry room, kitchen and living room were all very spacious. Even the closets were roomy. The kitchen was stocked well with tons of cookware, bake ware, serve ware, gadgets, small appliances, utensils, plates, drink ware, everything! We had a great experience and can't wait to go back.

We Made the Right Choice

  • 5 of 5

My entire family (20 of us) visited Orange Beach during the 4th of July holiday. We all stayed at Escape to the Shores and rented a total of 4 condos. Having a choice of units in the building I selected this 4 bedroom condo so the 5 of us in our party would have plenty of room and the description and pictures, although entirely correct, don't truly give you a feel for how much room there really is. The condo had everything we needed and one of my biggest regrets when we had to leave was leaving the master bathroom shower behind. Having 4 bedrooms was a definite plus as our 2 adult children and my sister each had their own bedroom. The condo served as the family headquarters during the week. We BBQ'd on site several times and all ate together in our condo. We also used it as an assembly gathering place to get everyone together before taking on our off site excursions.

We had a great view of the beach and Gulf from the balcony and watched 4th of July fireworks from the beach. The resort itself was wonderful, all people associated with the resort were very pleasant and easy to work with. The multiple pools at the resort were utilized by our entire party throughout the week. Having never been to Orange Beach before we discovered that there was plenty of things in the area to do when not on the beach. We went sight seeing in Mobile to Battleship Park and also went to Pensacola to see the Naval Air Museum and Fort Pickens. We dined at the Hangout in nearby Gulf Shores and also at Lulu's and everybody including our 9 grandchildren had a great time at both. I would highly recommend both places if you want to have some fun times.

Finally I want to thank Leah and the resort management company onsite for helping us resolve a small problem that occurred on the first day after we checked in. Even though it was the weekend of the 4th of July Leah answered our text immediately and promised to resolve the situation quickly. The resort management talked to myself and my wife to make sure everything was corrected to our satisfaction.

If you re looking for a great place to stay and vacation on the Gulf, I would highly recommend this condo, resort and Orange Beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kenneth for the expansive review. I am an avid traveler who has stayed at many VRBO properties. I know the frustration of dealing with a non-responsive owner. I strive to not be one of "those". I am here for my guests. It is my job to make your vacation as perfect as it can be. You pay handsomely for my condo and you deserve the best. Thanks for staying with us and thanks again for the glowing review. Leah
