NOTE: The condo has been recently renovated in Winter of 2017!

The History:

Our family has been vacationing in the area since the early 2000's. Our family decided to purchase this condo in 2012 in order to share our unforgettable experiences with many others. We have worked very hard to incorporate all of the best elements of our previous renting experiences into this condo in order to let others experience Orange Beach in the best possible way. Our condo is one of the newest and fastest-growing rentals in the area, having gained exceptional rating and rave reviews from every guest, and regularly hosting loyal returners!

The Unit:

The Unit is on the 11th floor of a quite complex (Phoenix 8), where privacy is always a given even during the busy Summer. This is a beachfront condo in every sense of the word, as we are touching the sand. The wrap-around balcony offers an unmatched view of the beach from both the living room and the master bedroom. The condo is furnished just like a house and features all major and most minor appliances--we have everything you'll ever need from blenders to washers and dryers and everything in-between. The unit is always cleaned before and after each guest stay to ensure cleanliness.

The Complex:

Phoenix 8 itself is relatively small compared to its neighbors which means that parking in the front is always available and the concierge/cleaning services are more readily available to all guests. This also means uncrowded lobbies and elevators. The complex also features a full service help desk in the lobby staffed 24/7 ready to attend to any and all needs for all guests. They can provide very helpful recommendations for restaurants, local attractions, and 'Off the Beaten Path' ideas!

The complex has tennis courts as well as a basketball court in the front while also featuring a sauna and indoor gym. The building is equipped with an an indoor pool, an even larger outdoor pool as well as a separate kiddie pool. There are also multiple grills and tables by the outside pool so you can enjoy grilling your dinner and relaxing with friends and family while the kids swim!

Location:

The central location could not be more perfect. The complex is just minutes from all local grocery stores and theme parks.

About Roy Lan

We've been vacationing down in the Orange Beach area since the early 2000's and quickly fell in love with the area after the very first trip. Since then, we rented from a variety of different condo companies, rental owners, and travel agencies before finally deciding to purchase a condo for ourselves and to rent to other families! We absolutely love vacationing at our condo and we're very sure that you will as well!

Roy Lan purchased this condo in 2012

Why Roy Lan chose Alabama

After renting from dozens of different complexes in the Orange Beach area for over several years, we as a family agreed that our stays at the Phoenix properties were by far the best. The Phoenix front desk staff is superb, the rooms and property are always clean, and the location is very convenient. After deciding on a Phoenix property, we decided on Phoenix VIII because of the relatively quite nature of the complex. It's not as busy as the other complexes so you never have to worry about crowded elevators, lobbies, or long waits at the front desk. The individual attention given to each guest at Phoenix VIII is unmatched, and we just found ourselves feeling absolutely at home when staying at the complex!

What makes this condo unique

The unit itself is very well-furnished and is always in tip-top shape. There are HD-TVs in every room, and the unit boasts an absolutely stunning 11th story view, while also being just a few feet from the beach! Because the unit is a Phoenix VIII condo, the grills, pools, elevators, front desk, and beachfront are MUCH less crowded than our neighbors'. The unit is furnished exactly like a house, having everything from dishwashers, ovens, washers/dryers, to extra chairs, couches, tables, and cabinets! The quality of our condo speaks for itself, and the value that you get when you stay with us is unmatched. If you're looking for a very high quality luxury condo for a reasonable price, then you've come to the right place. You'll never want to stay anywhere else--a theme that runs deep with our rapidly-growing loyal returners.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came in and stayed during a quieter time of year, and it was absolutely wonderful. My family loves off-season vacations, and we couldn't have asked for a better unit to spend it in. Roy, the owner, was very professional, helpful, and flexible with our schedules. In fact, he gave me a personal call on the phone (such a rare occurrence nowadays) and we instantly clicked. Within MINUTES we had booked our week-long vacation and could already smell the ocean breeze. It was an absolute pleasure and I'm counting down the days 'till our next beach vacation!

What a Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for a family with children. It was much more spacious then we had expected with stunning beach views. The furnishing was cute and comfortable. Everything was clean and easy to find. It had a large balcony with a table to enjoy meals outside. Easy parking and access to the beach. My kids especially enjoyed the pool area. We definitely plan to go back for more fun in the beach.

Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The views from the wrap-around balcony are just stunning, especially from so high up! The beach sunsets were just great--I felt like I could stay out there all night! Wish we had more time here, and will definitely be back very soon, perhaps in even less than a year!

Better than Before!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed at this condo a number of years ago, and we definitely had a great stay then, and Roy was amazing to work with. This time around, the booking process was just as easy as before. However, when we got to the condo, we immediately were surprised at how new everything was, and how colorful and tastefully it was decorated. In fact, it was a complete steal and I was so happy that they recently remodeled it. It was, as the title says, "Better than Before!"

Great Renovations!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few days at the condo and had a really, really great time! The kids just loved the Xbox (what a great touch), while my wife and I definitely enjoyed the newly done Master Bedroom. The new couches, TV's and upholstery in the living room was also amazing. Very tasteful. Additionally, all the new stainless steel appliances such as the microwave and fridge were really great updates. The owners have done a great job of addressing everything this time around!
