Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Queen sized sofa sleeper, 2 Baths (Sleeps 5-7)

Welcome to Fleur de Leisure East! You've found the ideal place to enjoy sugar sand beaches and all that Gulf Shores has to offer. We are located in The Lighthouse, one of the newest complexes on the beach, offering a zero entry pool, a second over sized outdoor pool, an indoor pool, 2 hot tubs, fitness center, and sauna.

From our balcony, you will enjoy a breathtaking, unobstructed view of the beach and Gulf. Inside you will find approximately 1,000 square feet of beautifully appointed space to enjoy. Our unit offers floor to ceiling windows allowing you and your family to take in the view whether you are relaxing in the living room, resting in the master bedroom, or even preparing lunch in the kitchen.

The master bedroom has hard wood floors with a bright and airy feel. The master bath has a granite double vanity, a large walk in closet, a jacuzzi tub, and a separate shower.

The living area is brand new. The latte colored sofa boasts a queen sleeper sofa, a 42' flat screen tv, and a bistro table to enjoy morning coffee or snack while enjoying the outdoor view.

The kitchen is also well equipped with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal including dinnerware, cookware, and utensils.

We are very centrally located. We are less than one mile from 59 which means we are less than one mile from The Hangout (a favorite among locals and visitors)!

If you MUST do laundry, we have a full sized washer and dryer, as well as an ironing board and iron.

The parking passes are now sold onsite and the cost is $20.00

If our calendar does not show availability for your specific dates, please consider taking a peek at another condo we own at Surf Side Shores, VRBO #432788 or The Wharf VRBO#482531!

About Kim Clatterbuck

We are a family of 6. Our kids range in age from 7 year old twins to a 16 year old son!

Kim Clatterbuck purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kim Clatterbuck chose Alabama

We chose this property because it is somewhat different than the other beach condo we purchased in 2012. We own another 2 bedroom unit at Surf Side Shores. It is as beautifully decorated as this one but Surf Side Shores is considered a low density unit. The Lighthouse is a high density unit because here, you will find over 200 units whereas at Surf Side, there are only 48 units. We love both of our condos. When we want a quieter vacation, we head to Surf Side and when we want to whoop it up, we head to the Lighthouse. If you are looking for something low key please consider our other unit at VRBO# 432788.

What makes this condo unique

The Lighthouse has a little bit of everything to offer. If you want to relax quietly on the balcony, go for it. If you want to be part of the beach crowd, go for it. If you want to be with the kids at the pool, go for it! If you want to walk to The Hangout for a bite to eat, go for it. This complex is so centrally located, everything is at your fingertips.

A beautiful condo with a breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely amazing! The amenities (both inside and outside of the unit) were above par. The owner was so friendly, and my friends and I enjoyed every minute of our stay! We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: Cameron, I agree about the amenities! The two outdoor pools are massive and the little kids love the zero gravity entrance. The indoor pool is always a hit especially for the afternoon thunderstorm that sometimes occurs. I personally use the gym everyday! I cannot wait to make your next reservation!

Another Fantastic Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd Spring Break trip staying in this Condo! We love the condo, we love Lighthouse, we love Gulf Shores and we love Kim!

The condo and the complex are perfect for our family with lots of space, beautiful views and so many nice amenities. The condo itself is well maintained and even has new living room furniture and decor after only 4 years!

We plan to continue staying in Starbucks and Biscotti II every year for spring break!

Great space. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We would have absolutely no hesitation booking this property again. No concerns whatsoever. The property is clean and caters more towards family than partiers. The condo is clean, modern and nicely appointed. Contains everything you need, just add kids!

Owner's Response: David, I love love your review! If adding kids is the answer, I'm good because we have 4! Can't wait to make your next reservation!

The condo had an awesome view and we loved seating on the patio!

  • 4 of 5

The only bad thing was the master shower didn't have hot water but the other shower did. The bunk beds and the room were a little small for teenagers. The master bed was very uncomfortable but otherwise we had a wonderful time and would go back again

Owner's Response: Julie, Even though the water is not something each condo owner controls, I would have been more than happy to call the HOA and have it addressed if you had let me know. I make certain to be available to all of my guests 24/7 to take care of any needs that arise. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay!

Map

We are located directly on the beach. When traveling down 59, you take a left at The Hangout and travel only 1/2 mile and you have arrived at the beach destination of your dreams. One in which you will want to return each and every year!
