As of 1/1/2016 City of Gulf Shores and O.B. will enforce a clean beach policy so all tents/chairs, etc. must be removed by 8PM. Beach chair concessions that have a business license will have 1-2 more years before they too will be required to clear the beach each night. This is being done so the city can groom the beach and in part to protect sea turtle nesting. For more information contact the City of Gulf

About Judi Stroud
After spending family vacations here on the gorgeous sugar sand beaches I just knew I wanted to be here and 'On The Water'. I am the original owner and no one has more fun decorating a unit. It is always being updated. So each stay in this unit will be just a little bit better. IF YOU ARE COMING FROM HWY 55 - NORTH OF MEMPHIS... ASK FOR DIRECTIONS! WE WILL EMAIL YOU. USE THE TOLL ROAD SOUTH OF HWY 10!!! SAVES 20 MINUTES AT LEAST!

The condo was everything you could ever want on the Gulf of Mexico. The deck was great the view wonderful, your able to walk out from either the living room or the master bedroom. The beds were so comfortable and the furniture beautiful, so fitting for a beach condo. Everything you need was right there and Judy was available, helpful and so sweet with all my questions. We will most definitely be returning!
Great view. Nice place to stay!
This was a great location and the view was incredible.

This beautiful condo is on the 3rd floor of Crystal Shores, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The view from the deck is spectacular. There is a table with four chairs, two chaise lounges and two chairs with a small cooler table on the deck. The beds are comfortable, the furnishings are tasteful, as well as comfortable. The full-sized kitchen is well-stocked with anything one might need to enjoy preparing a meal. Hope to return to it year after year. The owner, Judi, is awesome to work with and always just a call away
