SUPER PRACTICAL LAY OUT!!! This condo is perfect for the multi-generational vacation w/3 nice sized bedrooms & 2 full baths.
On the main floor you will find the beach themed Living Room furnished w/a comfortable leather sectional large enough to seat 6-7 and a leather rocker/recliner. A huge flat panel SMART tv along w/a blu-ray dvd player and satellite for fun movie nights. Under the TV is an electric fireplace & a shelf full of board games. Also off of the living room is a small balcony overlooking the pool & with a view of the lagoon. The balcony is furnished w/a table and 2 chairs. We love to have a quiet breakfast out here before all the kids are up :)
The living room is open to the Kitchen and only separated by a beautiful granite breakfast bar with seating for 6-8. The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops through-out and an extra deep sink w/dish soap dispenser full of dish soap & a high end spray faucet. The Kitchen is equipped with an ice maker, blender, toaster, coffee maker, crock pot, large electric griddle, baby chair that hooks to the counter, oils & spices all for your use! We also provide some dishwasher, & hand soap to get you started :) We've rented different condos for over 20 years before buying our own unit and I remember spending tons of $$$ on all the kitchen stuff!!! For this reason we have designated a drawer for sandwich bags, aluminum foil, garbage bags, coffee filters, etc...we encourage our guests to help themselves but if you notice we are running low on something please be kind and replace it for the next guest. In the end it's much cheaper than each guest having to buy several boxes of all these different items they won't be able to use up :)
There is also a shell themed Bedroom located on the main floor and it is ideal for the grandparents or could also be used as a smaller master bedroom because it has it's own full bathroom and a pack n play that fits inside the closet. It also has a comfortable queen sized bed, flat panel SMART TV!
We have amazing housekeepers that do a wonderful job cleaning our unit before each guest arrives but during your stay, just in case things are getting a little sandy, In the hallway you will find a broom closet w/a few cleaning supplies just in case they are needed. You will also see a cubby full of beach towels and a few beach sheets (please wash and replace before you leave).
Walk up the stairs and you will find the tropical themed large Master bedroom with a private balcony furnished w/two outdoor chairs and accent table. This is our favorite place to drink our morning coffee in the springtime and to enjoy the afternoon sunshine in the winter months! This balcony also overlooks the pool and has a great view of the lagoon. The Master bedroom also has a private entrance to the bathroom and it's own large flat panel TV w/satellite. Under the comfortable king sized bed you will find 2 pull out beds suitable for children. Sheets/blankets for these are located in the closet along w/a pack-n-play and nursery monitor. (if you use the pack-n-play please wash the sheet before you leave).
Also upstairs is a nautical themed Bunk Room. This room can comfortably sleep 4 and is furnished with a set of twin bunk-beds and a queen sized bed.. It also has it's own flat panel tv w/satellite and cubbies for easy storage of clothes.
The Upstairs Bathroom has a unique design of being two separate rooms. One for the tub and stool and the other the sink/mirror. So practical that it's almost like having another half bath!!
In the upstairs Hallway you will also find a full sized washer and dryer w/enough laundry soap to get you started :)
Under the unit there is parking for 2-3 vehicles, a gas grill, shower (cold water only) for rinsing off beach sand, and a small storage shed filled w/beach chairs, boogie boards, baby tent, sand toys, and beach umbrellas....PLEASE rinse them off and return them for our next guest to enjoy!
Wanting to come for one of our world famous festivals? Then this unit is BY FAR THE BEST LOCATION because you can reach it by taking Windmill Ridge Rd. & bypassing all the traffic on West Beach Blvd! We are about a 10 minute walk from famous Gulf Shores HOT SPOTS including, The Hangout, Bahama Bobs, Pink Pony, & Pier 33 as well as fun souvenir shops!
The pristine white sandy beach is about 80 steps away from our stairs & an easy walk w/in the safety crossing zone to cross the street. Clean & convenient showers & restrooms are also located beach side. Just the PERFECT place for a FAMILY VACATION :)
