Thanks for considering our Lighthouse beach front condominium. The Lighthouse complex is unlike many condominium complexes in that there is no 'tunnel' effect. The lateral design is such that there is more a feeling of openness. The complex features free Wi-Fi and high speed internet access throughout. Amenities are awesome. There are two large outdoor pools (one with zero access for the kiddies), two hot tubs, one heated indoor pool, a sauna and an exercise facility. A meeting room is also available. Built in 2006 the Lighthouse is one of the newest complexes in Gulf Shores.
We recently purchased our unit and this is the first year unit 506 has been reconditioned. Our balcony has comfortable seating for eight with table and chaise lounge and side chairs for your enjoyment.
Sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf are spectacular, para- sail watching is great and the dolphins are a joy to watch. The Living room-dining room and master bedroom all have huge floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors directly opening onto the balcony, offering a spectacular panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.
The living room/dining room has comfortable seating for viewing the Gulf of Mexico or watching the flat screen TV. There is a queen size sleeper sofa, leather recliner and swivel chair allowing for TV or gulf viewing. The dining room table and bar have seating for eight. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality cookware, blender, toaster, coffee makers, and electric can opener. The kitchen has adequate bar utensils, ice bucket, but no liquor-sorry.
The master bedroom opens directly onto the balcony. This bedroom is equipped with a king size bed. A flat screen TV and DVD player is supplied for your enjoyment. The suite features a large bathroom with double vanities, a large walk in closet, a whirlpool tub and a separate glass enclosed shower. Hairdryers are provided in the bathrooms.
The 2nd bedroom is furnished with a Queen bed and flat screen TV/DVD player. Furniture with plenty of storage space for your belongings is provided in this and all bedrooms. A private full bathroom with dressing area is provided.
The 3rd bedroom is a Bunk room with two comfortable Bunk beds and a flat screen TV.
We also own Lighthouse unit 501 a 3 bedroom corner unit VRBO no. 241095. You might want to take a look at this unit if 506 isn't quite big enough.
The Lighthouse is located in a very desirable area. Many restaurants are in walking distance of our unit. Major chains are represented but we enjoy the local cuisine. Some of our favorites within walking distance are the famous Sea and Suds(best crab claws and oysters), Mikee's, and the Pink Pony Pub. Also try DeSoto's(great coconut shrimp) and Bahama Bobs. A short drive to the north on highway 59 is the famous Wolf Bay Lodge down county road 20 and in Orange Beach. For a truly memorable night out that includes fine dining, dancing and entertainment Nolan's is the place to go. Great steaks, whole fried flounder, Greek salads and a full menu await you. Lots of places to go, lots of things to do in our beautiful Gulf Shores. We hope you enjoy your stay and you'all come back.
Gulf Shores activities are numerous. Younger vacationers can take advantage of the zoo, miniature golf courses, Waterville USA, The Track, the ferry ride across Mobile Bay and Go Cart Tracks. Shopping at local shops is a treat and nearby Tanger Outlet Mall is an adventure as is a visit to the Wharf, both offering lots of shopping opportunities. The Wharf is a complex with many restaurants, shops and an amphitheater featuring top entertainers. Don't forget the famous Naval Aviation Museum-home of the Blue Angels in Pensacola or the Battleship Alabama moored in Mobile Bay. Golfing is world class with multiple first class courses nearby and of course the area is famous for its charter boat deep water fishing. Recently opened in the area is the fabulous 'Hummingbird Zipline' located nearby at the Gulf State Park.
