Local attractions include the beach and ocean of course, the historic Fort Morgan and Ferry over to Dauphin Island, Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge, Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores Zoo, Bear Point Marina and Flipper's Restaurant in Orange Beach on Wolf Bay for Dolphin Tours, Zeke's Landing in Orange Beach for Deep Sea Fishing and dining ... Excellent restaurant choices for local flavor are: The original Doc's Seafood Restaurant in Orange Beach, Papa Rocca's Pizza, King Neptune's (for $5-$10 lunch menu). Three of our favorite dinner and fine-dining restaurants are: The Ship's Harbor, Cosmo's, and Cobalt. Any of the local Shrimp Baskets, Mikee's, The Royal Steamer are excellent less expensive and faster seafood choices. The Hangout, Tacky Jack's, LuLu's and Lucy B. Goode are great for commercial atmospheres with water views ... For specials on oysters try Wintzell's ... The Gulf is a new restaurant Gulf-front with views of boat rides, boat tours and local fishing under the Perdido Pass Bridge. There is also a new, as of 2013, Zip Line course in Gulf State Park between Gulf Shores and Orange Beach called Hummingbird Zip Lines. You can also rent bikes at Bill and Joe Gibson's Bicycles to take through Gulf State Park ... You can ride as long or as short as you want, but the entirety of the course is around eleven miles. For a day-trip off the beach, we highly recommend going to Fairhope where you can enjoy the beauty and history of Fairhope Pier, local art galleries and shops plus other unique and delightful dining venues. Another day-trip would be to go to Josephine, Alabama known for their Wooden Boat Festival every year in Pirate's Cove, the first weekend in May. You may also enjoy scuba diving trips available at two or three shops around the Shores. Shopping galore all around Gulf Shores and Orange Beach ... For nice, unique gifts visit the Orange Grove and Tallulah's, which are small vintage style boutique shops on the ocean in Orange Beach ... The Wharf is a fantastic place to take children for ferris wheel rides, ice cream, movies, shopping, dining or watching boats sailing the intracoastal waterway. Lulu's is nice place to dine for this as well. If you sit in the back by the bar area, the restaurant is perched on the intracoastal waterway. You may also wish to read Southern Living's recent article about Royal Reds Shrimp and restaurants

About Royal Red Shrimp:

From the deepest, coldest waters-up to 2400 feet deep. They tend to be large and are frozen on board the ships that stay way out a sea a long time, Royal Reds are a brilliant crimson red, or pink and some think they taste like lobster. A mature Royal Red Shrimp is about 3 years old. (Pleoticus robustus or Hymenopenaeus robustus)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: About: We purchased Catalina 1407 at The Beach Club in February of 2012. From childhood on, we have loved the beach and world travel cultivated by our beach-loving parents. Our mother, also known as 'Nana', often reminisces about her first outing to the beach where the sun was so bright during her visit to the Gulf Coast that she could not hold her eyes open. She tells a story of going out too deep and getting a spanking for doing so. Many of her stories create whimsical images of beach rendezvous and late night 'dipping' with her young entourage in the late 1930's. A business man that she worked for in Birmingham owned a beach house at Laguna Beach near Panama City Beach, FL. He would allow her and her friends to go, chaperoned of course, for weekend beach trips. Her beach stories are endless! Our Dad also had a contagious love of coastal living and especially world travel. Most all of his world travels, excluding beach vacations, were for the purpose of sales. Later in his life they became more specifically for producing and delivering large scale irrigation equipment to developing third world countries. He had a passion for world travel and became friends with world leaders and natives of particular countries. The world loved him and he embraced all cultures with grace, unconditional love, magic and style. In light of that, we have chosen this special place to share with other beach lovers, friends and family. We hope that you will enjoy 'Nana's Cabana' ... At 98 years old, she is still traveling to the beach and often found dancing the night away. We would all do well to remember her motto: 'Love Never Fails ...' 1 Corinthians 13:8. Sunny wishes, The Gibson Family

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
The Beach Club is the perfect place for a family getaway or for a retreat for relaxation and peace and quiet

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All you need to enjoy a great vacation is on site. There is no need to leave the premises unless you want to go and explore near by attractions, trails, other beaches, take a ferry ride to Dauphin Island and go to the Sea Lab Estuarium (very entertaining and hands on educational for the kids) or a round of golf on 2 close by golf courses: Kiva Dunes and Peninsula. lots to do close by or just stay where you are and enjoy all they offer.
