Find Your Bliss! Sunrise to Sunset in a 5 Star Setting

Bedrooms 1
Space 685 sq. ft.
Property type condo


About the property

A feast for your senses awaits you in this quintessential beachfront condo. Perch on its private, 9th floor balcony and marvel at the mesmerizing view of sugar-white sand and salty blue water. Whether you are sipping coffee in the glow of the peachy sunrise, or toasting the persimmon sunset with a glass of Champagne, you will know you have found your bliss. It is hard to tear yourself away from your comfortable seat on the cushioned patio furniture, isn’t it?

But, come on in, the living room, painted in shades of lemon zest and caramel frosting, provides TV, DVD player and free wireless internet access, but the star of the room is still the azure sea view. The sofa-sleeper provides sleeping accommodation for two souls who long to listen to the lull-a-bye of the surf and awaken to the scent of salt.

Uniquely, the dining area offers its own window onto the seascape, so you can feast your eyes on that blue immensity as you savor the fresh, local seafood you prepared in the well-equipped kitchen. From the blender for your Margaritas to the shucker for your oysters, attention to detail and desire for guest comfort is in evidence.

The bedroom offers a comfy king-size bed dressed in brand new clothes! A newly painted, taupe accent wall anchors the upholstered sage green headboard. Serene and cheerful, clean and classy, dreams will be sweet and salty.

The bathroom speaks to your spa-self with a sanctuary of sea blue walls, dark walnut wood cabinetry, quartz sink surround, tiled and glass enclosed shower, and a deep soaking tub. Bubbles and candlelight, perhaps?

When you do venture out of the condo, Phoenix 1 delivers an abundance of amenities for a true resort experience. Lounging poolside, the panorama of the Gulf remains the focal point. The pool is heated in the wintertime and features a sparkling waterfall. A children’s pool captivates the kids! Lighted tennis courts, indoor racquetball, hot tubs, saunas and fitness room cater to your athletic nature.

The beautiful beach beyond the pool features luxurious sun loungers with sunshades. Rentals are available, daily and weekly.

Grill your shrimp kabobs on the poolside barbecue and dine on the picnic tables as you catch the evening sea breezes.

Proximity to local hotspots is one of the charms of this vacation location. Walk across the street to Wetzell’s Oyster House or hop in the car for a short drive eastward to The Gulf or Florabama. A five minute drive west takes you through the Gulf State Park and to the fun-filled Hangout.

So if you are a seashell seeker or surf fisher, sunrise greeter or star gazer, sun worshipper or tennis player, book worm or boogie boarder, beach comber or zipliner, come to the Condo Where The Sea is The Star. You will find it hard to say Good-bye at the end of your stay, but you can always come back.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to let you know that our stay at your condo in Orange Beach was WONDERFUL!!! The condo was in a great location and had all the amenities that anyone would need. It was decorated nicely and was very clean. The balcony view was breathtaking as you can see in front and to both sides. This was our first time to the Gulf as we usually are at the Atlantic ocean. The water in the gulf was less rough and also warmer. This made for very relaxing days at the beach. We appreciate the assistance you provided in allowing us to secure your condo and feel it was the perfect choice for our stay. Thanks again!

Lovely & clean condo with gorgeous Gulf views all day!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable & well stocked with pots & pans as well as beach themed dishes. The king size bed was very comfortable. We would give it a 4.7 rating, with the only detractions being the harsh toilet paper & the toilet does not have a strong flush. The internet was strong during entire stay. The owner was lovely to work with. A beautiful vacation spot in a well tended building. All staff were most helpful at any interaction. We hope to return & bring family!

Owner's Response: We look forward to your return with family! Our efficient, water-saving toilet has a dual flush feature. Depressing the handle and then letting go provides a "quick" flush, and keeping the handle depressed during the flushing process provides a more powerful flush. We will place a note in the bathroom to avoid any confusion for guests. Thank you for pointing this need out.

Awesome! Want to stay again!

The property was perfect. It was relaxing, clean and beautiful. We are thinking of making it our annual spot for a trip without the kids. It was like a second honeymoon! Wonderful!

Lovely one bedroom condo, situated at Phoenix I.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to the condo and it was spotless. All the necessities you could need are here for a small family or a couple: cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans, a gorgeous shower and bathroom, a beautiful view of the beach from the balcony, and right on the beach! Unfortunately we only had enough vacation to stay from Thursday through Sunday, but the trip was well worth the stay. Karen was very helpful upon being contacted when my wife and I had a question on check-in procedure. There is ample parking at the condo, and the only complaint - which is out of owner control - is the wait time on elevators. It seemed like two elevators were not enough for the large accommodations of the condo building; I'm sure everyone was trying to get their family vacations in before school starting back, so that made things a bit more crowded than usual. The beach was awesome, and the owner supplied beach toys and umbrellas and chairs. Everything was above expectations and I would definitely suggest this to any couple or small family looking for a get away.

My husband and I stayed in this condo for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. 1 word describes this condo: PERFECT!! Everything was amazing for our stay. Nothing can describe the views from the balcony except that they were just breathtaking. You have a panoramic view of the Gulf. It was so nice to be able to walk from the condo downstairs to the beach and rent an umbrella and chairs and spend the day relaxing. All of the furnishings are newly updated and have a great beachy theme. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, and the whole condo made you feel as if you were home. The location of the condo was perfect and right in the middle of everything. Restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations were all close by. The owner, Karen, was so helpful and quick to reply to questions I had before we booked our stay. My husband and I will definitely be returning to this condo for our next stay in Orange Beach!!

Fantastic Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just returned from a 5 day stay at this condo & was so happy with it!! The condo itself is right in the heart of everything & the views from the balcony were breathtaking! I had questions in regards to the condo when I booked it months ago & the owner was so helpful & got back to me within hrs. answering my questions. It is very clean & she has the outside storage filled with boogie boards, chairs to sit in the water, etc. She has it decorated so nice & the king bed is so comfortable.

The condo property itself has 2 elevators & a beautiful pool also. You literally just walk right out onto the beach from the first floor!! Great property & lots of great eating places nearby. The water in the Gulf is so much warmer & calmer than the Atlantic. Would visit again.

I really want to give this condo a 10 star if they had one!!!

Wonderful Gulf Beach Vacation

My wife and I loved the condo. Beautiful balcony views. Lovely and comfortable furnishings. Convenient to the elevators. Great location. Lots of thoughtful amenities. My first time renting a condo. The owner was both considerate and generous and went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. We had a marvelous time. Splendid in every way. We'll be back next year. Thanks again.
