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 Gulf Shores

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.

As pictured, clean, beautiful, and perfect for an affordable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the complex and the condo itself. Perfect for a family of four with small kids. We enjoyed watching the birds on the lagoon, hermits off the dock and swimming in the pool. It's also an easy walk to the beach. We went everyday!! My husband had to work from the condo and few days and the wifi was great, fast, and easy to use. The trip exceeded my expectations! Thanks for such a beautiful place to stay and easy accomidations!!

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

View of lagoon was great and open without being crowded by adjacent buildings. Outdoor pool and boardwalk were in great condition, and coupled with that openness made for a relaxing setting. Condo itself was very clean and provide us everything we needed to enjoy our time at the beach. I would definitely stay again.

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.
