Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved this unit at Phoenix on the Bay ! The reservations system was simple through the VRBO website, and the keyless entry system was a breeze to use – no standing in line to check in or check out ! Parking is on the same floor as the unit - very convenient. Once inside the unit, it is meticulously clean, flat screen TV’s in every room, and really nice furnishings. The bed comforter sets vary from the photos, as they apparently are periodically rotated out for cleaning (which is great). The view from the huge balcony is spectacular, and the guest amenities at Phoenix on the Bay, including the lazy river, pools, and gym, are first class – some of the best in Orange Beach. This unit is perfect - highly recommend !

Great condo & complex

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very roomy and nice. It was very clean and inviting and the owner was very congenital and helpful. Beds were very comfy. The complex would be wonderful for kids in the summer since the pool complex is outstanding. The only heads up-the dishes are NOT microwave safe and become dangerously hot in a very short time. That aside we were very happy there.

I want to buy one of these condo's. The accommodations far exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

First, in an strange way we have to credit Hurricane Irma for our finding this property and Orange Beach AL. We planned a Caribbean or Miami vacation to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We found that in the most unlikely place... Alabama. Phoenix on the Bay had every amenity to fulfill that Caribbean vibe we were looking for. An amazing pool with lazy river, putting greens, boat dock, superb restaurants, and access to the most pristine white sand beach. I highly recommend booking your vacations through VRBO. We have found our new getaway location.

We love it here. This condo is really nice and you don't even have to leave the premises to have fun. Our grandkids (and adults) enjoyed the lazy river and slide.
