About the property

2 BR/2 1/2 Bath, 15th Floor, 30 Foot Wall Of Windows Facing The Beach

How do YOU define your perfect vacation? The eternal sound of waves crashing on the beach from the comfort of your 15th floor balcony? Whether it is from the comfort of brand new wicker patio furniture or surfside @ the gorgeous sugar-white sands and sparkling blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico @ the West end of Gulf Shores Beach, ALA come and enjoy beautiful sunrises and fiery lagoon-side sunsets creating lifelong memories for you and yours. Don’t’ miss “the Quieter Side of the Island!”

This 1236 sq.ft condo is new to the market and boasts a 30 foot wall of windows overlooking the turquoise blue waters with completely unobstructed views. The balcony faces south and is never off limits from a sunny summer day. So kick back, grab a drink and a good book, bird watch, watch the Blue Angels practice flying by at eye level, or just take a nap. The options are endless on your completely private balcony.

This unit beckons with 2 bedrooms, two full baths, double sinks in each along with separate toilet areas and uniquely a half bath right off the living area for ease of access without entering a bedroom. You and your family or two couples (up to 6 people) can enjoy the wide open living area including big flat screen TV, seating for 6, a fully equipped kitchen and eating nook for 4 with granite countertops and additional seating for 3 @ the kitchen bar….

Flat screen TVs in each bedroom, floor to ceiling custom made draperies with black- out linings ensures a great night’s sleep and complete privacy. Bedroom 1 has a King-sized bed and Bedroom 2 has a brand new king size bed and mattress. All bedrooms have luxury sheets and towels.

If fishing is your delight, you can fish directly off the public pier or wade fish all in Little Lagoon located out the back door of your building. On the counter in your kitchen you will find a notebook prepared especially for our guests describing the myriad of activities and eateries available in the greater Gulf Shores area. A brand new phone system allows you to automatically call in some of the area’s favorite restaurants for delivery or a quick pick up and eat-in experience. Little ones who have waded in the calm waters all day or built their sand castles may be ready for an early night’s rest.

Chartered fishing, the National Naval Aviation Museum, diving around the largest artificial reef program in the US, a water park, golf , tennis, kayaking, dolphin cruises….

The greater Gulf Shores area hosts many Festivals throughout the year including the Shrimp Festival in October, the Annual International Songwriter’s Festival in November, and the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival in April. Become familiar with the Gulf Coast Check Chamber of Commerce' website to explore the wonder and beauty of the Alabama Gulf Coast.

No Matter What Adventure You Choose, your family and friends are sure to find it in Gulf Shores, learning lessons and making memories that will last a lifetime.

About Tina Blanton

As a native of Corpus Christi, Texas I grew up on the water and the beach has always been an important part of my life. My husband and I and our two now grown children have been vacationing on the Gulf Coast their entire lives. Our extended family now owns property in Gulf Shores and the beautiful white sand beaches here are now our go-to beach destination. We hope you will experience the same thrill of the beach at Pelicans Porch.

Tina Blanton purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tina Blanton chose Alabama

Sanibel condo building is one of the very few buildings situated between 2 bodies of water. The sparkling Gulf in front of the building and the calm waters of Little Lagoon located directly behind. Two great choices of water activities sure to please the most avid water enthusiast.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent! By far the most comfortable condo we've ever stayed in! Attention to detail is obvious the minute you walk in the door. Lots of extra little things that make your trip even better (beach cart, beach chairs, plush towels, various condiments/spices, etc). The photos don't quite do justice to the unit. The owner (and manager) was very easy to work with... Fast responses from initial booking, to letting us know the unit was clean and available for early check in, and answering any questions I had! Great week!

Beautiful 2 king bedrooms 2 1/2 bath ocean view 15th floor condo

  • 5 of 5

This very well equipped 15th floor condo has owners that want to provide a truly away from home vacation experience! The large condo has beautiful furniture plus a large balcony with expansive ocean views. The king beds are very comfortable with lovely linens and choice of pillows. There is plenty of storage in closet and furniture. We could not find a detail that was not provided. There is even a pantry in the well equipped kitchen! I was a little apprehensive that it was not directly on the beach which is really only a short walk away (and there was a wheeled beach cart for use in the closet). Covered parking, elevators, 3 1/2' at deepest swimming pool was fun for all the children's activities without having to worry about risk taking diving and was enjoyed by all adults as well, and a bbq area, all proved to be bonuses. Would definitely book again!

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had one of the best experiences. There is more to do in and around Gulf Shores than you can imagine. From fishing, kayaking, zip lining, going to the zoo, taking in all the historical places to just kicking back and relaxing at the beach or on the balcony, this place offers it all.

The condo had amazing views of the beach and was just a short walk away.It was a great place to relax and just let the breeze clear your head. The balcony was large enough for the family to sit out on and just watch life slowly go by. An amazing place that I would go back to anytime that I could. Everything was just perfect.

If you are planning a trip to Gulf Shores, do yourself a favor and look up Pelican's Porch.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at Pelican's Porch! My husband and I spent hours on the beach and loved that it wasn't very crowded in this area of Gulf Shores. My parents were content to stay inside or read on the balcony most of the time because the view was just so amazing! We brought our 5 month old and there was plenty of room for the pack and play. Every piece of furniture was extremely comfortable and the condo was beautifully decorated and very quiet. We especially liked having the wagon available to help tote all our stuff down to the beach! We will definitely be back again!
