Property description

Welcome to The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama!

This waterfront two bedroom, two bath condo is perfect for young families, couples retreats and girlfriend getaways. Family-friendly activities, shopping, dining and much more are just steps from your front door making it a vacation destination full of convenience, fun and memories just waiting to happen.

ABOUT THE CONDO

The tropical themed condo boasts stunning views, spacious living areas, and upscale touches throughout.

You will enjoy:

Indoor and outdoor living areas…

The fully stocked kitchen opens to the living room and includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a dedicated icemaker and a wine chiller complete with a complimentary bottle of wine to start off your stay.

The bar-height counter with two stools make perfect perches for friends and family to keep you company while you cook, or from which to serve appetizers and snacks.

A dining table, adjacent from the breakfast bar, seats six to enjoy a home cooked meal.

A cozy living room looks out over the marina, and a large-screen television is perfect for watching a movie.

A covered deck off the living room includes a table and six chairs from which to watch barges and boats coming and going, a gas grill for preparing fresh meals, and a view of a nearby restaurant’s outdoor stage. (Please note: The deck is closed for painting from April 2 to April 8, 2015.)

Comfortable bedrooms…

The master bedroom overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and includes a king bed, television and DVD player, large walk-in closet and bath featuring a spa tub.

The guest bedroom also has a king bed, television and DVD player. The guest bath is adjacent to it and also has access from the hall.

A comfortable sofa sleeper in the living room sleeps two more guests.

And more…

A washer and dryer inside the unit make it easy to keep clothes and swimsuits clean.

Access to the on-site fitness center lets you keep up with your normal workout routine.

WHARF ACTIVITIES

When it’s time to venture out, whether you are visiting with children or visiting with friends, there’s something for everyone.

The Oasis: Spend your day lounging in a hammock, floating a lazy river or jumping waves! Wharf guests have full access to this water oasis including a zero-entry wave pool, lazy river, multiple pools, whirlpool spa, sandy beaches, a hammock island, a tiki bar…and a short free tram ride to get there.

The Wharf Ferris Wheel: One of the tallest ferris wheels in the south, this attraction delivers awesome views of the surrounding areas, day and night. A handicapped accessible gondola is available.

Sharky’s Family Adventure Park: The newest attraction at The Wharf features rope courses, zip lines, and an 18-hole miniature golf course. There’s even a scaled-down version of the course designed for children ages2-7, and the first nine holes of the miniature golf course is ADA accessible.

The Wharf’s Light and Sound Show - SPECTRA: See the palm trees that line Main Street come alive and “dance” each night during a state-of-the art light show choreographed to music. You can view the three free shows from the front entrance of the condo, and it is sure to captivate the young and old!

Wharf Amphitheater: Music lovers will enjoy this 10,000-seat outdoor theater where popular acts such as Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and The Dave Matthews Band have graced the stage.

Wharf Marina: Book a dolphin cruise or fishing excursion, or bring your own boat! Slip rentals are available.

PLUS there is a 15-screen movie theater, salon and spas, golfing and more!

WHARF SHOPPING

The Wharf is not only a vacation destination; it is a shopping destination! Even the most particular shopper will be impressed by the dozens of locally owned boutiques and unique shops on Main Street brimming with a wide selection of unique apparel, home décor, sports gear, toys, souvenirs, gifts and more.

WHARF DINING

Just because you have a fully stocked kitchen in the condo doesn’t mean you have to use it. The Wharf is home to several excellent restaurants. From burgers to fresh seafood, casual to fine dining, you will find it on Main Street. Take a break from shopping with the girls and grab a daiquiri, or treat the kids to ice cream. There also are several options for nightlife and live music too.

OUTSIDE THE WHARF

While The Wharf is an all-inclusive destination with activities, dining, and shopping just steps outside your door, you can be lounging on white sand beaches within minutes where there are even more water activities available from parasailing to paddle boarding. If you need a break from the sun, recommends the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach or the Orange Beach Indian & Sea Museum. The Orange Beach Sportsplex, the host of many travel baseball tournaments, is just over a mile from The Wharf.

I know you will love the Wharf and this area as much as I do, and look forward to hosting you in my upscale condominium. The calendar on this site is kept up-to-date, but if you have any questions before booking, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I live in Decatur, GA. People know me most by the person who always has a coffee cup in her hand. I love coffee!

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
I am a computer-related business owner. I am able to work anywhere with a PC and an Internet connection. Several years ago, I started spending two months each winter in Orange Beach, where my sister lives. I stayed in a couple of places, but once I stayed at the Wharf, I knew it was the place for me. I've stayed there several years and decided to buy in 2013. I love sharing my condo and the unique experience of the Wharf with others!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I have been a tenant at the Wharf. I now live at the Wharf three months every year. It has afforded me the opportunity of meeting the people and patronizing the places that will bring my guests the best experiences.
