About Doug & Connie Ripplinger
We live in NW Wisconsin and are Nana and Papa to 9 grandchildren.
Doug & Connie Ripplinger purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Doug & Connie Ripplinger chose Orange Beach
We have always loved being at the ocean and dreamed of having a place there to share with others. We feel blessed to own this condo and want others to experience the peace and relaxation we find at the ocean.
What makes this Condo unique
We like the homey feel of this 2 story condo. We love how we can park right out front and walk up the steps to our deck or walk off our parking lot right onto the sugar sand beach.

We had a wonderful time and loved this condo. This is a great location at beachside and to all of the wonderful restaurants in the area. Thanks for one of the best vacations ever.
Thanks! We agree, being beachside and having great restaurants close by makes a great vacation.
Perfect Location and Property
Loved our stay! Was a perfect location and had great access to the beach. Highly recommend!
Great Room, particularly for the price. Not your typical high rise.
I give it three stars not because I had a poor experience, but because relative to other accommodations in the area it just isn’t as high end. The inside of the room was just fine. Maybe a little outdated, but nothing that bothered us or adversely effected our stay. The water pressure is subpar at best. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Kitchen was well stocked. No view of the ocean, nor was it advertised. Second floor unit with no elevator. The stairs are a little tight, but not a major problem. The exterior of the community is not very aesthetically pleasing. The pool is small, but clean. The walk to the beach is not a short one and you go through what appears to be a planned construction site that never took shape. Fences everywhere. Overall, we were pleased with our stay. We got what we expected for the most part. If you don’t need a pretty building to look at this will work just fine.
The planned construction is to replace the unit that was taken out by hurricane Ivan, fences were put up around construction area since it is scheduled to start soon. We share the main grounds so once that is complete we will have a new pool, boardwalk, landscaping etc.
First timers - very pleased
After making a wish list, I spent a fair amount of time researching options for our family of 4 on spring break, and we were all very pleased with my selection. My teen daughters loved having their own room/own bed away from ours and access to a full bathroom. My husband and I liked our bed and our own bathroom. I thought the bed linens were very nice. The kitchen is perfect for meals in and the furniture was comfortable. We did not have any troubles with WiFi. We used the washer and dryer just fine and appreciated the ice maker and dishwasher. Being able to keep the key in the lock box on the door is great for coming and going easily from the beach. Connie is a friendly, helpful owner who genuinely cares about her guests. We liked the location along the strip and didn't feel squeezed out by the neighboring 12 story condos. Being in a small complex has it's benefits - not feeling like other guests are impacting your relaxation, no waiting for elevators, and easy to carry in groceries. It felt more like a vacation home than a hotel or massive condo. We didn't mind the short walk in sand vs. boardwalk to the beach. We didn't mind not having our balconies facing the beach or pool, and we used both the front and back balconies through the day.
We would book it again if we get back to Orange Beach some day.
Is as described.
Condo is as described. Convenient location, close to shopping, & dinning. Very responsive owners.
If a view of water is what you want this is not the place, just two parking lots.
There are condos to the east and west of us, the gulf is to the south. If you look at our posted pictures you will see the only view of the gulf is from the east deck looking south. We do not have interior views of the gulf.
Wonderful property, even better owners!
This was my first experience with HomeAway or any similar site, and I can't say enough about the experience, the property itself, and especially the property owners Connie and Doug. They communicated extremely well from the very beginning which was important for someone who was unfamiliar with this type of thing. The condo was very clean, updated, nicely decorated, spacious enough for my family of 4 and my brother, fully stocked with appliances and other amenities that added to the convenience we were hoping for, just a short walk to the beach, and extremely convenient to businesses + restaurants + etc. We were there for my sister's wedding when Hurricane Nate hit the area, and Connie and Doug were extremely kind in communicating possible hazardous weather conditions and helping us figure out our best options to stay safe. We couldn't have asked for a better first experience or a nicer place for a better price. We hope to be back soon! Thank you for the short but wonderful stay! :)
