Why Mr. Shannon and Mrs. Jackie Brienza chose Gulf Shores

One of the newest condos in Central Gulf shores and within walking distance to everything. Crystal Shores Condo is only 5 miles from the brand new OWA Amusement Park, summer 2017. No other beach's have what we have. Great views and amenities in well designed building. Lots of attractions nearby. My family has a wonderful time there each time we go. Whether you're reeling in the catch of the day or sightseeing on a dolphin cruise, there's plenty to do and see on an Orange Beach fishing charter or cruise. Experience Gulf Shores and Orange Beach in a whole new way when you fish the back bays of the Alabama Gulf Coast or set sail on the open water. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach fishing charters depart daily. Choose from private charters to party boat charters for the experience that's right for you and your group. Fish the largest artificial fishing reef program in the country when you sink your line in the Gulf waters off of Orange Beach for some Alabama deep sea fishing fun. Dolphin sightseeing tours are equally entertaining and educational and are a fun way to spend the day. Orange Beach sailboat charters are another great way to while away the time on your beach vacation

                                                                  This condo was very nice and really clean. Plenty of room and what an amazing view of the beach and gulf! We left the master patio door open at night and the beach sounds were so peaceful that I didn't have to have a fan on to sleep. Truly enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and the dolphins swimming by every morning while enjoying my morning coffee out on the balcony. It had the perfect high top table and chairs to enjoy having an evening meal and glass of wine as the sunset. The owners were so great and very accommodating and quick to respond. Definitely recommend for your next getaway!!!

                                                                  Awesome beach vacation

                                                                  Megan H.

We enjoyed eating on the deck daily and even saw a few dolphins swim by one morning. The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us maximize our time on the beach. We would definitely recommend this to a friend and/or return another time.

                                                                  Wonderful View and amazing location

                                                                  Sopheap M.

We love the idea of just walking down to the beach, very convenience. The weather were not as cooperative, but the indoor/outdoor pool was a great substitute. The condo was cleaned and comfortable with all the amenities of home. The washer/drier were great assets for lite packing, especially of beach towels! Our host was very hospitable, checking in with us often(before, during, and after the trip). Our granddaughters requested a return trip and they did not want to leave!

                                                                  Thank you Shannon and Jackie for sharing your home-away-from-home with us!

A spacious balcony had a beautiful view overlooking the beach and a place to lay out and hangout with friends. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, cups and things like that. It was also convenient to have a washer and dryer in the unit. The gym, sauna, pool and hot tub were great bonuses! It was a quick and easy walk to the beach with good parking when you wanted to go places. The owner was also amazingly helpful when we had questions and needed tips, and they made sure our stay was going well throughout! Overall, our stay was near perfect and we would recommend anyone looking for an affordable and great place to stay right here!

Discover a whole new world under the surface of the Gulf of Mexico with Gulf Shores and Orange Beach diving vacation. Alabama’s first purpose-sunk ship wreck - The LuLu, a sunken freighter - is 17 nautical miles south of Perdido Pass and Orange Beach (+29° 59' 50" / -87° 33' 00") and joins the area off the Alabama coast that is the site of the largest artificial reef program in the United States. This newest reef wreck is at a perfect depth for beginner diver certification, with 50-foot depth clearance at the top of the wreck. It’s also attractive for the experienced recreational diver at the bottom level depth of 115 feet.
