About Angela Payne

My husband and I are both native Alabamians. We have been married for almost 30 years and have 3 children. Our lives are centered around faith, family, and friends. The beach has always been a favorite vacation spot for our family and we are very excited to own a property in Gulf Shores.

Angela Payne purchased this condo in 2012

Why Angela Payne chose Alabama

Compass Point is located on West beach on the Lagoon side. It is very quiet and peaceful, and only a short walk to the beach. We looked at many different properties, but just kept coming back to Compass Point. The views are beautiful, and the grounds are very manicured. Everyone is friendly, and we just have a sense of peace when we are there.

What makes this condo unique

Compass Point is unique because you have so many options available. The beach is a short walk, the lagoon is great for fishing or boating(places to dock boats), quiet streets are good for walking or biking, and there are two pools(one is indoor). Our balcony overlooks the pool and the sunsets are beautiful.

Great place to stay with family!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this condo! It was very clean and in a great location. The view from the oversized balcony was amazing and being right next to the pool and the lagoon was perfect. I definitely suggest staying here. We will again in the future! :)

Away from it all but close to it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for more in this condo. It is away from it all but conveniently close to it all at the same size. Everything from the decor, size, cleanliness, amenities were as close to perfect as it gets. Not to mention the pricing was awesome. The owners were very responsive and accommodating. We're looking forward to our next stay already!!! Thank you!!!

Great Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as shown in the picture. So clean and had everything you would need. The view from the large balcony was absoultely gorgeous. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay there again and I have already recommended it to several of my colleagues at work. We had a wonderful time it was so peaceful on the lagoon but close enough to enjoy the other amenities at Gulf Shores if we wished. My grandson loved the pools and the fishing. It was without a doubt an A+ experience.

Car: recommended

Compass Point is tucked away on Little Lagoon down West Beach. Since it is not located on the main road, it is the perfect location for biking, walking, boating, swimming, fishing, or just relaxing on your balcony and watching the wildlife. The peace and quiet is so refreshing. Large oaks and picnic tables allow you to enjoy the grounds around the complex, or it is a short walk to the beach where you can spend the day soaking up the sun. Waterville Water Park and the Tanger Outlet Mall is a short drive, and numerous restaurants (including the famous 'HANGOUT') are within 5 to 10 minutes of the complex. If you are looking for a day trip, Pensacola and Mobile are within a 1 hour drive. They have several attractions which all members of your family would enjoy.
