About Stan and Ling Cardwell

We've been married 37 years. Our extended family can't wait to bring our grand daughter to the splash pad and lazy river. As we near retirement we've searched for the perfect place to enjoy ourselves by the ocean and this is it!

Stan and Ling Cardwell purchased this condo in 2014

Why Stan and Ling Cardwell chose Orange Beach

We rented this property last summer and fell in love with it. After 10 years of thinking about purchasing a condo, we knew this was the perfect oasis. This is the newest condo in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area and is very upscale with all the amenities.

What makes this condo unique

How great is it to have a lazy river at your condo, right next to the ocean. Very relaxing to alternate between the ocean, lazy river, indoor and outdoor pools. Throw in some sauna time, workouts, and hot tubs. How relaxing. So many great restaurants in the area we haven't tried them all yet.

This is the best beachfront condo we have stayed at on the Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I take a Sisters Get Away each year, and we were lucky to find Stan's condo. He was very accommodating to our needs and the condo was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. After a busy day relaxing, we slept in beds as comfortable as we have at home. It was really nice to have all tile in the rooms, rather than carpet which never feels clean. The 70 inch television in the living room made us feel as though we were in the stadium watching Thursday Night Football (and our team won!) We could easily unpack because all dresser drawers and bathroom cabinets were empty. Even though we didn't cook one meal, the kitchen is well stocked as is the bar with glasses. We enjoyed the lazy river and the pool, and especially the balcony. The dolphins even swam by to welcome us and then again to say goodbye. The front desk personnel are very friendly and helpful. We are definitely planning to return next year.

The 4 Sisters.

Best condo ever

  • 5 of 5

Still the best place to stay in Orange Beach. Plenty of room for big families or friends to stay and enjoy the beach. Lots of good eating either heading towards FL or Gulf Shores and lots of amenities from indoor pool to gym to enjoy. Comfy furniture and huge TVs a plus too.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo. It had more than enough space for our whole family. The view from the deck was beautiful. The pools and lazy river were great. The security person Mike helped my husband when we had a flat tire and allowed him to stay at the gate until the repair person showed up. One of the best places we have ever stayed at.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time on this vacation and the condo was such a peaceful, comfortable place to be. The pictures could never do the view justice. Having the back wall of the living room be completely windows was just awesome. We would wake up in the morning and want to go straight out to the living room and balcony to just take it all in. We loved having coffee out there every morning, had a few meals out on the balcony and would play games out there in the evening. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with all the dishes, pots/pans, appliances that we needed to make meals with our family. Everything felt very clear, and the furniture all felt brand new!

The condo building itself felt very safe and secure, very spacious, plenty of elevators so we never felt like we were waiting a long time to get up to our room. Everything was VERY clean and well maintained. I know we weren't there in one of the most busy times, and it was so nice that it wasn't overly crowded. The lazy river was awesome! Our kids LOVED the water slide!! We must have gone down that slide 100 times! It was perfect for little ones (my kids are 3 and 6 years old) and I even had fun going on it too. The indoor pool was also so helpful just to get a break from the sun and still be able to swim around.

The owner was very nice and offered to help in any way we needed, but we never had any issues!

Our family went to the beach, searched for sea shells, hunted for sand crabs at night, enjoyed the amenities of the condo, went on a sunset dolphin cruise a few miles away (which was beautiful) and ate delicious seafood at several restaurants nearby. We had the most amazing brunch at The Ruby Slipper. The best breakfast ever!!! It was delicious!

I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and we hope to make it back here ourselves again too.
