Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

New 800 square ft, one bedroom, one bath, ground floor condo w/private patio

Check in on a Saturday or Sunday for a full week of comfort and relaxation in a very affordable fully furnished luxury condo located in a quiet condominium community only 5 driving minutes from the beautiful Gulf Shores beaches and 20 minutes from the Fort Morgan Historical Site and the pristine, uncrowded Fort Morgan beaches.

The Enclave at Oak Hill includes a beautiful sparkling outdoor pool with lounge furniture and a hot tub. It is only steps to the air-conditioned exercise facility hosting cardio and weight machines.

Nearby are golf courses, public boat launch, excellant seafood restaurants serving local catch, entertainment centers, movie theatres, retail stores, and the Tanger Outlet Mall is only 20 minutes away.

Our pristine unit is located on the first floor, and a small private patio allows outdoor seating. Steps away from the patio is the 20 mile bike/walking trail between Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan. Six of those miles are separated from the main highway and wander through scenic beauty.

The unit sports an Old Hawai'i theme. Lithographs of Hawaiian mythological figures and watercolors of Hawaiian flora and fauna, along with vintage Hawaiian advertising adorn the walls. The queen-sized bed is clothed in Hawaiian quilting design. A queen-sized sleeper-sofa provides for additional sleeping accomodations. The well-furnished spotless kitchen is granite and stainless. An island provides casual seating. The unit has 10 foot tall ceilings, beautiful swirled 18' porcelain tile, bathroom with tiled tub and shower, washer and dryer, large flat screen televisions and DVD player.

If you enjoy history, you may enjoy a day trip to Bellingrath Gardens or the USS Alabama in Mobile, or the US Naval Air Museum in Pensacola.

I want everyone to be comfortable and therefore am unable to accomodate Pets as some renters are allergic.

About LAURITA MILLER

I grew up in Hawaii where my Father was a pastor of a rural church for 23 years. I am a graduate of Samford University in Birmingham and Washington University in St. Louis. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, permanently of Birmingham, Alabama, although I have returned to Hawaii to live and work for a few years prior to retirement

LAURITA MILLER purchased this condo in 2013

Why LAURITA MILLER chose Alabama

I grew up on the beach in Hawaii and have longed to live near the beach ever since. Investing in the condo gives me the opportunity to occasionally be near the ocean, and make that opportunity available to friends, loved ones, and other guests who are eager to enjoy the spirit of Aloha. 'The beach IS my happy place.' I hope this condo will help make that true for our guests as well

What makes this condo unique

The condo is beautiful, modern, in perfect condition, is pristine clean, and is located in a quiet, peaceful, safe community with beautiful pool and exercise facility. It is within 5 minutes drive of the beach. Because it is not located right on the beach, the condo can be made available at a lower cost for an affordable vacation. Additionally, the central location really helps you 'wind down' and enjoy leisure time and being able to choose when and where you will enjoy our perfect Alabama's beaches. It is the perfect couple's retreat.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family went to Gulf Shores for a baseball tournament/vacation. We are not big on the beach and sand so we looked for a nice place away from the sand. We were pleasantly surprised that this condo was super nice, clean and felt like our home. We will definitely stay here again. The price was also very nice! We got a quality vacation for a lot less than the cost of something on the water.

Owner's Response: I am happy that I continue to have well satisfied guests. I have great Fall and Winter Rates. Fall is a beautiful time to be in Gulf Shores. The water is still warm in the pool and ocean and the beaches are uncrowded. Come and visit!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

I am staying in this condo this week. I was pleasantly surprised that it is nicer than in the photos and very clean. Thanks to the high ceilings, it is very spacious for a one-bedroom condo. The living area is large. The kitchen has everything we need in terms of pots, pans & dishes. The location is in a quiet area and is a short 5-minute drive to the beach. There is a nice pool and exercise room in the complex. The owner has been wonderful to work with. This is my first time staying in Gulf Shores and this is a great location. Restaurants are nearby as is a grocery store. There is a wonderful outlet mall nearby. This is spring break for some colleges, as a 60-something I am glad that we are staying away from the beachfront. We have been going to the public beach which has a big parking lot & restroom. The beach is lovely. The college students don't frequent the public beach as they seem to all be staying at condos and hotels along the beach front and congregate there. I highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to receive another five star review, as all reviews have been five star. Every effort is made to provide a beautiful, clean, comfortable environment for the perfect vacation experience. My condo has availability for late Spring, Summer, and Fall, and it is reasonably priced. I will do everything I can reasonably do to work with potential renters.

Fort Morgan is a state historical site, about 20 miles up highway 180. Regency Road turns off of 180. A bike trail goes all the way if you have the stamina, or, About 25 minutes by car.. You and your car can also ride the Ferry from Fort Morgan to Mobile for a minimal price.Ferry leaves several times a day, however, you should check as the crossing is dependent on the weather situation.

Another wonderful day trip is to the Naval Air Museum at Pensacola, less than an hour. Guided tours and fascinating for those who love American history and airplanes. The Blue Angels are based in Pensacola.

Notes:
We were attracted to this condo in large part because it seems like a perfect hideaway, to relax and restore. Just minutes from the glorious Gulf Shores beaches, and within minutes of everything we might need or want to make our stay comfortable, the condo is tucked away from all the clutter and noise that can lessen the calm and restorative benefits of getting away from home and the daily grind. Readily accessible and easy to maintain, the unit permits our guests tremendous flexibility in deciding when (or even, if) to head out for some beach or golf time or other activity, or to simply take it easy in surroundings that will be inviting and comfortable from the moment the front door opens to reveal the sign, 'The Beach-Wave your worries goodbye!' We have found it to be a welcome 'quiet place,' where time is far less important and all the things we enjoy doing individually and together are close at hand. We believe and hope that our guests will experience the same thing.
