About the Property

2 Bedroom with 2 Bathroom Directly on the beach!!.

Welcome to the BEACH!!! It’s all about location when you come to Gulf Shores. Crystal Shores is Gulf Front property and our condo is located on the 7th floor with unobstructed views to the Gulf with high patio furniture allowing you easily look over the railing instead of thru it!

My unit has a reserved covered parking spot ($20/visit) on the ground floor and it’s shaded! No more hot car to get into! It's also close to the elevator with trolleys to place your bags on for easy rolling to the condo. A second parking spot is available for an additional $20/visit.

I rent my unit Sunday to Sunday year round as it represents the best value for me as well as my guests. My pricing reflects that and it allows me to keep a fantastic cleaner which matters for everyone!! I will entertain other days but understand it will liikely come at a higher price as I end up with days unrented and/or must work around my schedule or my cleaners as we both have full time jobs. So it is not that I'm inflexible but I do have to look at the economics and realities of making an accomadation for your calendar desires.

Everything is located very close to the condo! Pier 33 is across the street (everything you need from groceries to drinks), Surf Style, Island Outfitters, Alvin's for beach gear and clothes, and several restaurants are a walk away.

My Master Bed is a King with a private bathroom and has a direct sliding door to the balcony. The 2nd bedroom is a Full on Full Bunk bed attached to 2nd bathroom with plenty of drawer space. The Living room couch is a pullout queen. Each bedroom has new flat screen TV with remote and the Living room is a 42' flat screen TV. All TVs have a DVD player with DVD remote with Dish TV (about 150 channels).

The Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and I have extra equipment including a crook pot and automatic coffee pot! A well equipped gym, sauna, and game room are located on the Lobby Floor with secured access. There is also a heated indoor pool, a hot tub, and an outdoor pool as well as charcoal grills available.

I have opened my storage room to my guests so as to enjoy boogie boards, surf board, floaties, fishing poles and gear, flash lights, beach toys (and an electric blower), beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the beach without worry of purchase and to save you money. There is additional storage on the beach level if you wish to leave your items there. I have extra blankets, throws, bed sheets, and pillows. There is also a new PS3 with two controllers with some games for the big kids and little kids. The PS3 player can also play the Blue Ray DVDs that I have added to the movie library. Games and puzzles are in the living room.

Thanks for considering renting my happy place!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a retired Major of 23 active duty years and currently starting my second career as a RN. My family and I enjoy the beach as much as we can when my unit is not rented so it is something I personally enjoy as well since I live locally here in Gulf Shores.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
I purchased this property as I love the beach, the water and the sound at night of the waves crashing on the beach. It is my happy place but happy to share it with my guests!!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love sitting on the balcony at night drinking a glass of wine. Also, waking up in the morning and drinking a cup of coffee watching the dolphins play and the sun coming up makes for a great start to any day.
