Property description

***We have been sprucing up and updating! New sleeper sofa, dining table and chairs, bedroom flooring, range, dishwasher, etc.***

Our unit is updated with granite counter tops throughout. Quality bedding and linens are provided and updated regularly. Tiled flooring throughout the condo. Unit 302 is direct gulf front, and being a 3rd floor unit makes it easy for those that don't like elevators to walk the stairs to the room. It is directly above the pool making it convenient to sit in the comfort of the wrap-around balcony and watch the kiddos playing at the pool. From the balcony it is easy to communicate with family and friends at the pool, but high enough to be quiet and private. Shoalwater is unique in that the building and units are staggered to allow a panoramic view of the ocean. This eliminates the 'tunnel view' that is common on most balconies. Shoalwater is a low-occupancy building (only 72 units - minimizes beach or pool crowding, ) and is located just steps away from the most beautiful gulf beach! When taking kids or loads to the beach, you will love being so close.

When it comes to providing good customer service and a quality vacation home for our guests, we do our best to provide the best! Our goal is for our guests to consider Shoalwater 302 one of the best-in-class, and to make it their go-to vacation home year-after-year.

Shoalwater

Car: Recommended

Shoalwater is in the perfect location: just a few blocks from the popular supermarkets and pharmacies. It is also convenient the popular restaurants in the area. Adventure Island is across the street and provides entertainment for all ages: Arcades, go-kart tracks, miniature golf, laser tag, and more. Try out the new ZIPLINES conveniently located between Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! The Holiday Inn Express is next door to Shoalwater and it has an outdoor snack bar with hot dogs, hamburgers and frozen drinks during the summer season. Many of the gulf's best restaurants are in Orange Beach (some within walking distance) and Gulf Shores! The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and several championship courses are located nearby. Charter fishing boats are also plentiful in Orange Beach. The Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, The Wharf in Orange Beach, and a couple of nice Movie Theatres are all within a few miles of Shoalwater and provide a fun way to spend an evening. The Hangout (kid friendly and super popular for all ages) is just 5-miles down the beach in Gulf Shores, and the world-famous FLORABAMA Bar/Pub/Honky Tonk (too unique to describe!) is only 4-miles away, just across the Perdido bridge, for those looking for a little more excitement!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family of engineers - Alabama and Auburn grads (We just don't talk about football in our house!) - living in north Alabama. We have two married children (all Alabama and Auburn grads), and four grandchildren. The 3-BR condo is perfect for our growing family! We consider all of our renters as guests in our home, so we work to keep things updated and in top-notch condition. On February 23, 2013, we decided to list our condo on VRBO and we have already made new friends through this adventure. We appreciate you considering our condo for your family's vacation home!

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
Our family has been vacationing in the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Destin areas (staying in lots of different condos!) for over 30 years. When we started looking for a place of our own, we fell in love with Shoalwater. The facility is well maintained, it is only steps from the ocean, and the pool area is awesome. The best part is the building is low occupancy (only 72 units) and has a great balcony! We also love having 3 bedrooms plus the sleeper sofa to easily accommodate our whole family. We consider our condo a home-away-from-home, so we work to ensure that we offer our guests a home that competes as the Best In Class! Shoalwater is in the perfect location: just a few blocks from the popular supermarkets (Publix, Winn Dixie, WalMart Market) and pharmacies (CVS and Rite Aid.) Adventure Island is across the street and provides entertainment for all ages: Arcades, go-kart tracks, miniature golf, laser tag, and more. Try out the new ZIPLINES conveniently located between Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! Many of the gulf's best restaurants are in Orange Beach (some within walking distance) and Gulf Shores! The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and several championship courses are located nearby. Charter fishing boats are also plentiful in Orange Beach. The Wharf in Orange Beach and a couple of nice Movie Theatres are all within a few miles of Shoalwater and provide a fun way to spend an evening. The Hangout (kid friendly and super popular for all ages) is just 5-miles down the beach in Gulf Shores, and the world-famous FLORABAMA Bar/Pub/Honky Tonk (too unique to describe!) is only 4-miles away.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Shoalwater is unique in the way the units stagger back from west to east. This opens up the beach view from the balcony so that you aren't looking just straight ahead - no other units or buildings are sitting side-by-side blocking the view or invading your privacy. The beach is beautiful from any angle, but nothing is prettier than a panoramic view! We love the wrap-around balcony where you can either sit in the shade or the sun - depending on which part of the balcony one chooses to sit. We love, love, love the location of our unit - 3rd floor-east end of the building - just above the pool - high enough to be private - low enough to feel like you are still part of the pool and beach scene while sitting in the comfort of home. Can't beat it!!!
