About Franklin & Kay Golson

Kay and Franklin Golson, Birmingham, Alabama. We're both water and boat lovers and we've always enjoyed coming to Orange Beach for our vacations.

Franklin & Kay Golson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Franklin & Kay Golson chose Alabama

We chose Orange Beach first because we're both Alabama natives currently living in Birmingham, Alabama and wanted to stay in Alabama. Phoenix VIII has such a nice lobby and is extremely well maintained. It's a great family atmosphere. We hope to make this our seasonal retirement home! The staff here are great!

What makes this condo unique

Phoenix VIII has a low density rating and is just such a pleasure to stay in. Elevators, beach, pools and parking lots are never crowded. Just pull up at the front door, unload and enjoy the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this condo from the Golson's. There is nothing lacking in this condo, plus it is very clean and decorated with a touch of class. From Phoenix VIII we were less than a 5 minute drive to any need we had. The views from the balcony are great, the dolphins can really put on a show. The beaches and the ocean were clean and clear again. I am a fan of the pool, hot tub and the out door grills at the pool. Thanks Frank, we will return again...

This condo was perfect for my husband, our 20 year old daughter and I. It is exactly as the pictures show. Very tastefully decorated, kitchen fully stocked, clean, and views from the balcony to die for. Our daughter used the fitness room, husband enjoyed the pool and we all loved the beach. Franklin was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to renting from him again. Could not have been any better.

We stayed a few days mid July, loved the condo!!! View was excellent, exactly as pictures show. Would definitely recommend to other travelers. Front desk staff was super friendly. We had 5 females so would have liked a few more mirrors other than than those in bathroom:) Would like to know where coffee table and tv stand came from, we all were in love with them!!!

Owner's Response: The sofa sleeper, den chairs, coffee table, media stand, end tables and master bedroom headboard came from Oh So Coastal in the Orange Beach Publix shopping center. Monica was a great help! We took down mirrors during remodeling and have forgotten to replace ones will be up by Labor Day! Thanks for the comments!

I stayed here with family. We had everything we needed. It has a very spacious feel, you don't feel like your running over each other. The view was breath taking. I loved the location it was close to where you needed to go,but you still had the sense of seclusion. We will definitely be going back. The owners were excellent to work with. I just don't have anything negative to say!!
