About the Property

1BR, 1BA, ocean view condo. Beautiful pool & hot tub, tennis courts, pier, docks

NOTE: Be sure to check out our newest condo if you prefer a direct beachfront property - http://www.vrbo.com/789059. Completely renovated top to bottom with amazing views!

------

We first saw our beautiful Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club (GSSRC) condo in September 2014 and knew it was just what we had been looking for. After purchasing the property in October, we spent the next 2 months renovating it and now, it's a warm, relaxing home away from home.

WHY WE FELL IN LOVE WITH OUR LOVELY CONDO

Our GSSRC condo is located on the 3rd floor and looks out toward the Gulf of Mexico. And although the beach is located across West Beach Blvd, we can still see and hear the waves from our condo. In fact, we have watched the dolphins playing from our private balcony.

A WALKING TOUR

1. The Bedroom

As you walk into our renovated condo (with new porcelain tile throughout), you will be in the bedroom area. The bedroom has a queen size bed (with a memory foam mattress topper), a large 6-drawer dresser (with a TV), another 3-drawer dresser, and 2 nightstands. There is a large clothes closet as well complete with an iron and ironing board. Lots of storage to unpack your suitcases and stay awhile!

2. The Bathroom

Next to the bedroom is the new, clean bathroom. The bathroom has a new vanity, new medicine cabinet with mirror, new toilet, and new shelves. Again, lots of room for all your bath items. By the way, you'll LOVE the water pressure in the shower!

3. The Kitchen

As you walk down the hallway, you will notice the new refrigerator on one side and the fully stocked kitchen on the other. The kitchen includes a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all the utensils you'll need to prepare a nice meal.

4. The Living Area

Walking into the living room area, you'll see a comfortable pullout sofa (sleeps 2) and a cozy, comfy chair. Put your feet up on the new ottomans and relax as you watch one of many cable channels available on the 32' wall mounted TV, with adjustable arm. A secure, private WI-FI network is available as well.

5. The Balcony

The large private balcony has 2 separate seating areas - one with a small coffee table and the other with a dining table. What a wonderful space to start (or end) your day.

6. In-unit W/D

By the way, you don't have to wonder 'am I bringing enough clothes' because an in-unit washer and dryer are located in the closet next to the refrigerator.

But there's more to our condo than just what's on the inside....

A TROPICAL PARADISE FEELING

The Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club faces the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Little Lagoon on the opposite side. The pool area is located on the lagoon side and can only be described as having a lush, tropical feel thanks to the tall palm trees, the mini waterfall, and the tiki hut. The pool area includes a large common pool, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub.

EASY, PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS

Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club has their own private boardwalk access down to the white sandy Gulf of Mexico beaches. And after you've spent the day at the beach, an outdoor rinse off area is available to GSSRC guests as you make your way back to the condo.

TENNIS ANYONE?

The condo conplex includes 2 private tennis courts (recently resurfaced) for their guests. The courts are situated between the main pool area and Little Lagoon so you'll have a great view while you're waiting for your opponent's serve.

BOATING AND FISHING

A boat launch into Little Lagoon is available for a low launch fee. And if you do not have a boat but still want to fish, GSSRC provides 2 long piers for its guests. Of course, fishing is also available in the Gulf.

AN UNEXPECTED ENTERTAINMENT SURPRISE

Because the Blue Angels are based in nearby Pensacola, they can be seen practicing their air show moves at certain times of the year over Gulf Shores. We absolutely LOVE watching them so it was a great bonus surprise when we realized we could sit on our balcony and watch these amazing jets do their tricks.

COME ON DOWN TO SUNNY GULF SHORES

Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club and our lovely, renovated condo have so much to offer. All that is missing is YOU! So come on down to sunny (warm) Gulf Shores Alabama for a fun and relaxing stay.

Oh, one more thing - We have GREAT monthly rates available if you're interested in 'snowbirding'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We (Brenda and Randal) first visited Gulf Shores in February 2014 and although the region experienced below average temps during our stay (thank you, polar vortex!), we still fell in love with the beach, the area, and the people. We knew we wanted to come back again....so we did! We returned to Gulf Shores in September 2014 for our honeymoon and we knew we had to find a beach condo to buy.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We viewed several condo units while we were in Gulf Shores for our honeymoon. This property was the first one and we recognized its potential right away. Plus, it's located in a GREAT complex - Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club - with plenty of amenities and a nice quiet location.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
One thing that really sets our condo (and this complex) apart from all others is its unique location - situated between the Gulf of Mexico beach on one side and Little Lagoon on the other. Guests have the best of both worlds - a quieter lake front type of setting and the crashing ocean waves only a very short distance away. This is a GREAT place to play and relax!
