About the property

Super Clean, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Stunning Water Views, Peaceful, Less Crowded

VACATION: A period of time devoted to pleasure, rest, or relaxation - This is just the spot to make that happen.

A vacation at my condo on the bay right by the Pass to the Gulf has just about everything you could want all in one spot because of the great locale:

1) Views of tranquil waters, fishing and charter boats passing right in front of your deck, Dolphins hunting a meal around our private marina while you are amused by Brown Pelicans dive bombing and gliding over the water.

2) Far less crowded than the beach side condos. With only 59 units in the building, Mariner Pass is never really crowded even at the peak of the season compared to most condo buildings on the beach.

3) 'Memory Maker' is a very comfortable 3 bedroom condo with a great Master suite separated from the guest bedrooms. The Master suite features a sliding door right out onto the deck and a spacious Master bath with a handmade shell encrusted chandelier softly lighting a corner jetted garden tub just waiting for your to unwind. Master Bedroom with high end furnishing opens out onto the large deck overlooking Cotton Bayou and beautiful waters, a marina and pool.

4) The living/dining area is appointed with a comfortable sofa and two leather club chairs with ottomans and a custom pendant light over the dining table made from fishing rods.

5) A spacious kitchen features granite counters, stainless appliances and even a Keurig coffee maker.

6) There's a laundry area with both a full size washer and dryer in the condo.

7) 'Memory Maker' has been home to a very neat bachelor who loves to fish for several years, but having just married, it is now available to share with others. It is immaculately clean and certainly not worn.

8) Two guest bedrooms with a full bath are on off the kitchen. One features a queen bed and flat screen television. The other features a full bed and a day bed to sleep 3 comfortably.

9) With both an outdoor pool skirted by our private marina and a heated indoor pool with a Jacuzzi tub, your sure to find just the spot for a relaxing dip or soak and all the sunbathing you could want. You can enjoy fishing from the end of two piers on our private marina or bring a kayak and tour around the bay.

10) Value for your Dollars. Condos on the bay side are just not as expensive as on the beach, but you get much for your dollars. So, you have to take a short drive or walk to the beach; the other perks make it well worth that little bit of inconvenience.

11) There are 7 great restaurants within 1/4 mile, most of which you can walk to easily, as well as shopping and a Marina for back bay or deep sea fishing trips, boat or jet ski rentals, and dolphin tours.

12) Our world famous sugar sand beaches are best enjoyed at the State Park just over the Alabama Point Bridge just out your front door. A super short car ride gets you right to the beach with boardwalks, bathrooms, and arbor covered picnic pavilions all at no charge.

13) There are 3 grocery stores, gas stations, amusement parks and arcades, numerous dining options and loads of live music and bars all just minutes from your door.

14) The elevator is easily accessed just steps from the condo and there are 2 comfortable balconies to enjoy the ocean breeze. Enjoy the ocean breeze while taking in the Gulf views from the front balcony while sipping a cool drink seated in Bistro height deck chairs.

There you have it - just a few of the many great reasons that this is where you want to spend your vacation at the coast.

15) The HOA has restricted rental to a minimum age of 25. Partying and disturbing others is not tolerated.

About Tom Clark

I lived at Mariner Pass full time for several years until I just recently married and moved into my wife's home. Now I rent our my very condo, which hardly looks lived in as my job kept me on the road most of the time.

Tom Clark purchased this condo in 2009

Why Tom Clark chose Alabama

Peaceful with beautiful views, with a great community and a private marina.

What makes this condo unique

The location of Mariner Pass is so special being right on the bay and just feet from The Pass where fishing and pleasure boats travel to and from the Gulf of Mexico. The views are captivating and there is almost always a breeze. There are many restaurants, shops and marinas close by. The building is moderate in size with only 59 units and just 12 of them are rentals. Many owners live there full time or call Mariner Pass their second home.

Memories made with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time making new memories with long time friends. We talked, laughed, sat in the sun, swam, and played games til 2 in the morning. We found a different place to eat each day. The sunsets were beautiful The beaches are close with pool and docks even closer. We will get this place again to make some more memories.

Great location, views, and condo was quite.

  • 5 of 5

Nice decor, had everything we neeed, clean, quite, centralized to everything. Ladies, bring your own body lotion. Two parking spots. Nice breezes on both balconies. We thoroughly enjoyed fishing off dock, even though we didn't catch anything. I would highly recommend this 3-bedroom unit at its readonable rate.

Wish We Could've Stayed Longer!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful days here! The condo was perfect for us! It was lovely, clean and well appointed! My favorite part of our stay was enjoying my coffee on the balcony each morning! Hoping to return someday!

Great Condo, Fantastic View, Location - in the middle of things to do!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in the "Memory Maker" and did just that!!! Made memories with our family and especially our two-year-old grand-daughter!

The condo was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was modern and the three bedrooms provided us the extra space we needed to not be cramped!

At first I was hesitant because we were not directly on ocean-side but after the first day sitting out by the marina enjoying the lights and boats coming and going, I think we will never go back ocean-side. There was a place out front to sit and watch the ocean but the marina was beautiful at night with all the activity!

The location was excellent. There are restaurants within walking distance and we very much enjoyed "The Gulf" across the street with its sand and relaxed atmosphere. Our grand-daughter had the time of her life there!

We will definitely try to come back and do this again!

Amazing Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

After coming to Orange Beach for many years, this was our first time to stay on the bay side. We absolutely loved it and so did our kids! We all enjoyed watching the boats come and go at the dock. The telescope in the condo was also a plus! This condo was super clean and nicely furnished. The complex was nice, calm, quiet, and the pool was not crowded either. We will definitely be back!
