About the property

3BR/2BA beach front (sleeps 8)

Our unit is newly updated with granite counter tops throughout and brand new kitchen. The floors are ceramic tile throughout the unit.It is gulf front. Being a 2nd 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 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.

About Owner/Property Manager

We are owners at Schoalwater but have been enjoying the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast all our lives. There is no better vacation spot for family and friends. We have owned property in Destin but the area is now too crowded. We sold our property there but the sandy beaches kept calling us back. We love Orange Beach and hope you will enjoy our newly renovated condo.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Orange Beach

We chose Schoalwater because it has well run managment and is well maintained . It has wonderful ameneties with beach,pools ,hot tub,tennis and exersise equipmet.The best part is the building is low occupancy (only 72 units) and has the best-ever-balcony! We also love having 3 bedrooms plus the sleeper sofa to easily accommodate our family. We want our condo to be an awesome place for our family and friends to enjoy when vacationing at the beautiful sugar sand beaches of Orange Beach. 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 the kids and kids-at-heart in the form of arcades, go-kart tracks, miniature golf, laser tag, and more. The Holiday Inn Express being next door is a huge advantage since it is another low occupancy facility - really helps minimize beach overcrowding! Having Holiday Inn Express next door to Shoalwater has other advantages too- it has an outdoor snack bar that serves hot dogs, hamburgers and frozen drinks during the summer season. I think it is about the only place along the beach that does this, and we have it right next door! Many of the gulf's best restaurants are in Orange Beach 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 is just a few miles north of the beach and is great for shopping. There are also a couple of nice movie theaters nearby.

What makes this condo unique

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 - 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!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner
