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

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 Gulf Shores

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.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Our main concern was the washing machine was very loud and moved during the spin cycle. The dryer took sometimes 3 rounds to dry things. Other than that all was great.

Owner's Response: Margaret, I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I wish you had contacted me about the washer and dryer as I would have had someone there to take a look! I am so happy the rest of your stay was great!

Great Weekend of Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing weekend. First thing, the pictures does not do the unit justice. I guess you can not capture the open feel of the unit in a picture. We have stayed in condo's in Panama City, and we feel that this unit is on another level. This unit is is centrally located in the middle of the 5th floor, which is great because it is close to everything. It is close to the two main elevators. This is great because on the 1st floor, it is located close to the pools and main beach entrance. We had such a great time, we are already thinking about coming back next year. The beach was not crowded, which made it awesome for relaxing & re-charging the batteries. Relaxed and ready for our next stay!

Great property - as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at the Lighthouse before and this condo was as good, if not better, than the other units I've stayed at. It was clean with nice furniture and well equipped. Although we didn't use the kitchen, it had all of the required utensils and cookware. The owner was great and she provided excellent customer service!!!! Thanks Kim!!!

Perfect mini-vacay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly what I was looking for for my birthday getaway. The location was amazing with the beach being only steps away and minutes from all main attractions. The condo itself was clean and exactly as described. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you'll consider another stay. We have lots of return guests which is flattering considering there are lots of beach properties to choose from. However, The Lighthouse is amazing!!

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!
