Note: our inquiry response is generally identical to what is shown on the reservation calculator, unless it is a weekly, snowbird, extended stay request, or you need a last minute room.

RESERVATIONS: Reservations for the condo are easy ! Our preferred method of booking is for you to use the 'BOOK IT' button on the top right hand side of our site, and follow the online instructions to book the unit through the online VRBO credit card payment system.

As there are dozens and dozens of slips of every size available, slip availability is guaranteed, even if last minute. For example, if you decide to bring your boat at the last minute, or make a last minute reservation with us, simply pull in with your boat to Phoenix on the Bay, and then go to the front desk and rent a slip. It's that easy.

There is even a boat launch, boat washing area, and trailer parking - all on site ! Phoenix on the Bay is a boater's dream !

REFUNDABLE SECURITY DEPOSIT: A fully refundable security deposit is required, in addition to the amount owed for the stay. The amount required varies depending upon the Season (Spring Break) or event (Hangout).

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 !

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great view, great facility, friendly staff & guests, close to entertainment locations. We had a minor problem while visiting, it could have become a major problem but was fixed quickly and professionally. The owner and family are great people. The only negative is I thought I had reviewed the property already and had not. So I get a 1star, the property gets 5 star.

Great for family, friends trip, or relaxing.
