About the Property

The Catbird Seat at the Top and Center of this Three-Building Complex

Views to Infinity from the GULF SHORES SURF & RACQUET CLUB Penthouse Suite!

CONDO FEATURED in 'GULF GLAMOUR,' a PROFILE of MUST-STAY PROPERTIES in the Greater Mobile, AL area, published in 'ALABAMA ENTERTAINMENT,' "MOBILE POST-CRESENT"

LOCATED in the heart of WEST BEACH, GULF SHORES; as NOTED in 'COASTAL LIVING MAGAZINE,' - AMONG the TOP 21 BEST BEACHES in AMERICA!

Fall out of time! You dreamed it, you wondered if it's real, you asked about it - it's here! Enjoy panoramic views to multiple horizons, via a wrap of windows that extend the living space. This private jewel will seduce you - a get-a-way you pray will never end!

Beautifully appointed furnishings are pristine, warm, inviting and enfold you in elegance. Beach urban living at its finest - all swimming in romance!

Open concept - endless light to add shimmer to your wine glasses!

What to choose?: endless play on sugar sand; lazy, relaxing days poolside; lovers' tennis challenges; shuffleboard and cocktails; long evening sunsets from the boat piers, slips or ocean; wine in the hot-tub...

Bring your boat, jet ski, your personal pleasure-craft, and put them into the inter-waterway from the boat ramp! Parking is plentiful! Rest in tranquility by the calming pool, surrounded in lush tropical plants. Walk and skip to your fun, all day and night long!

Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club is on the near end of Gulf Shores peninsula. Water is the key component on both sides; one side hosts the inner waterway; the other is the Gulf of Mexico. Beach Boulevard is on the south side of the complex, with a private walkway and deeded access to the beach. The tropical pool is on the Bay side, protected from the sea salt and, therefore, creates the tropical landscape that it is - a rich botanical of plants growing that cannot be evident adjacent to the Gulf. It is a water paradise, and an ideal landing spot for guests who like to put their boats and water-crafts in, as well. Travelers love to fish off the long piers, too. The resort amenities are numerous, giving access to both simultaneously. GSSRC is situated on the narrower end of Gulf Shores/Pleasure Island, and is private and quieter, as a result.

From the (penthouse) crown of Building A, swim in light, expansive views, wine, dance, sleep, play - with absolutely no obstructions! Dream and live the hours away in a complete circle of refuge - this astonishing corner-condo haven is all yours to enjoy! Designed for duel companionship, for lovers and dreamers - exquisite quaintness awaits!

The suite, with penthouse climate-controlled hallways, tops a trinity of buildings facing both the Gulf of Mexico and an inter-coastal waterway with a feast of water, sun and sand for the heart and mind! Steps from the Gulf shoreline, simply walk across the parking lot onto the deeded private boardwalk, shed your shoes - feel the silky sand!

RESORT-STYLE AMENITIES!

Complex amenities include a boat ramp, three fishing piers, and boat slips - all available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Plus, tennis courts, shuffleboard, hot tub, a tropical-surround swimming pool, and private boardwalk to the beach!

This tranquil, restful and 'cosmic' resort is located approximately three (3) miles west of Hwy 59 (Gulf Shores Pkwy) in Gulf Shores, with the ocean steps away to the south, and the water-way to the north (the canal nearby enters the Gulf of Mexico from 'Little Lagoon')! All amenities include:

* Outdoor Pool - Tropical Setting
* Kiddie Pool (Fenced)
* Hot Tub
* Barbecue Grills/Picnic Area
* Lighted Tennis Courts (equipment provided free)
* Shuffleboard (equipment provided free)
* Gazebo
* Boat Slip
* Fishing Pier
* Boat Ramp (gated)
* Boardwalk to the Beach

Get lost in the tropical-landscaped courtyard and breathtaking clover-shaped pool! Indulge in everything that Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club hosts for you to enjoy! You will be renewed, refreshed, electrified, and energized!!

PLEASURE ISLAND'S BEST-KEPT SECRET!

*$20.00 Parking Pass must be purchased by traveler; obtained at the front office during business hours (pass NOT included in rental rate); pass valid for the entire duration of stay.

*Boat pass registration is $20 (duration of stay); stickers issued at the front desk.

*Condo hosts one queen bed, and one queen (state- of-the-art) inflatable mattress (SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress with ComfortCoil Technology & Internal High Capacity Pump). Easy to Operate!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We live in Gulf Shores, and adore the Alabamian coast! We know the area intimately, and love to assist travelers in helping them create a beachfront vacation that truly impregnates their mind and heart forever! We married on the beautiful sands of the Gulf of Mexico, and the passion for living and being in this proximity never leaves our hearts. We are enthralled with love for this area, and become ever more close with its nature, beauty, and the communal of people. Together, we are passionate for shoreline, sun, sand, daily walks and talks. We both always have craved visits and time spent at the gulf and fresh water lakes, including beachcombing for unique shells and sea glass. We welcome the opportunity to share our home with you and those whom you love.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
This penthouse brought us the feeling of being on the top of the world – literally! Although we adore and enjoy our other properties on the gulf, we crave efficiency and streamline chic, so we have more time to play outdoors and be together! This condo was so stunning and incredibly ravishing to us, because you can see all points on the horizon - you will feel like a queen and a king! We delve toward warmth, shoreline, and sun - and cannot absorb enough of them! This haven is drenched in dance, romance and song . . .

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We were drawn to this resort property because, oftentimes, we just want to relax, be together for quiet, intimate conversation and enjoy it all, in the tranquility and setting of a tropical pool, gardens, plants and lap of the water. Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club offers the substance of that choice - you can leave it all, because all that you need is right here for you. The site has so many diversified, unique amenities, so the days and evenings can be completely full with ALL that is immediately on the property to experience! Access! To water, sand, sky! You can see, and be in, all that you imagine! Stay in or step out: You are THERE!!
