About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps Up To 6

Our 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit is on the 9th floor of building number 3 at Seaside... building 3 is the ONLY true direct gulf front building in the Seaside Complex! Remember when searching rental condos at Seaside, the building number is the first number of the unit number. Our unit, number 3905 is on the top floor, the 9th floor, in building 3, so the view is absolutely breathtaking. When you are comparing units, be sure to compare those only in the same building, since some don't even have a view of the beach! The beach view is grand from our balcony in unit 3905!!!

The Seaside Complex is one of Orange Beach’s most popular rental complexes, with lots of amenities, affordable rates, convenience of walking to restaurants/shopping and DIRECT gulf -front condos.

The living room has a large window showing a stunning view of the sugar sand beach and sparkling blue waves below. From the balcony you will enjoy watching the activities on the beach, the red sunset or taking a nap listening to the methodical rolling of waves against the shore. Building 3 is set perfectly to capture the beauty of the full length of the white sandy beaches.

The bedroom has a king size bed, with bathroom conveniently located beside it. There is a flat screen TV with cable in the bedroom as well.

The living room has a large flat screen TV with cable and a flat screen TV with cable and an XBOX 360 for the kids enjoyment! The XBOX 360 will allow game play and also play DVDs. It has built in WIFI, so connecting to XBOX live with your own account is a snap!

The living room also has a full sized sleeper sofa, as well as an IKEA convertible sofa/day bed, also in full size. The IKEA bed is really comfortable!

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want, the dining area has seating for four. We also have a stacked washer and dryer in the condo for your clothes washing convenience.

The Seaside Complex has 2 sparkling outdoor pools, one indoor pool, steam room, and tennis court, as well as a nice area for grilling. The pools and courtyard have plenty of seating for laying out in the sun or watching the kids swim.

Please NOTE: I answer vrbo inquiries once each day, usually after 9 pm central time. I have a full time job and therefore generally cannot answer inquiries during the day. Thank you for understanding.

We are sometimes asked if we give military discounts. We do not give military discounts, however, we donate 8 full weeks per year to Operation Reconnect. Operation Reconnect is a Non-Profit organization that provides complimentary vacations to combat veterans and their families. For more information please see their website at:

The Seaside Complex is located in the heart of Orange Beach, with shopping, restaurants and much more all within walking distance of the unit.

No smoking and no pets inside any of the units at Seaside!

There is a drink vending machine, two elevators and luggage carts for your convenience.

The Complex is within a short drive of several grocery stores (including a Wal -Mart Supercenter), pharmacies, package stores, movie rentals, spas, deep sea fishing charters, movie theaters, golf courses, water parks, mini golf, the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, Gulf Shores State Park, the Alabama Birding Trail and Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge.

There is a great local cheesemaker near the condo in Elberta Alabama, about 20 minutes away. Sweet Home Farms has a small herd of Guernsey milk cows that they milk to produce a variety of high quality cheeses. They produce cheeses ranging from incredibly smooth to wonderfully sharp! The blue cheese is unbelievable! They are open friday and saturday only from 10 am til 5 pm.

History buffs can ride out to Fort Morgan State Park, built in 1834 and heavily used during the civil war. For those that want to visit her sister fort across Mobile Bay, Fort Gaines, they can take the interesting ride on the car ferry over to Dauphin Island! Makes a great day trip!

For those that have never experienced the night life on the beach, you are in for a wonderful time. There are many night clubs in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The Pink Pony and The Hangout are a short drive over to Gulf Shores. Live Bait is a popular nightclub within a short walk of the condo. All have live music most of the time. One of the best places to experience the Gulf Coast nightlife and meet people ages 18 to 80 is the world famous roadhouse, the Florabama Lounge. Located right on the Alabama/Florida line, just a few miles from our condo, the Florabama has beach access, great food and some of the best live music around, but don’t take the kids past 6 pm… unless they are at least 18 years old!

The Seaside Complex is only an hour away from Mobile Alabama, 30 minutes from Pensacola Florida, and 15 minutes from Foley, Alabama. Located directly on the beach at 24522 Perdido Beach Blvd, in Orange Beach. From I-10, take highway 59 to Gulf Shores and take a left on East Beach Blvd, then go 5 miles and Seaside Beach and Racquet Club is on the right. From the Foley Beach Express, after going through the toll bridge keep going straight until you dead end into Canal Road, then take a left and follow it to Alabama Highway 161, take a right and follow it until it dead ends into Perdido Beach Blvd and take a right and go about a mile. Seaside will be on the left.

If you prefer a 2 bedroom unit, we have 4 other condos, 3 of which are 2 bedroom direct beachfront units, at Island Shores in Gulf Shores. Check out our 5th floor unit at Island Shores at VRBO #555510. We also own a 2nd floor unit at Island Shores, VRBO 555508 and our 4th floor Island Shores unit is listed with VRBO as number 681060. We also have a 2 bedroom that is a less expensive, but it is not direct beach view. It is on the canal behind Papa Rocco's Pizza in Gulf Shores a few blocks from the beach. It is Venetian Isle vrbo #910888. To view any of these other VRBO listings, just type in the VRBO listing number above into the search line in VRBO.

Minimum rental age for this unit is 21. We do have one other unit (NOT direct beach front) that has a minimum age of 19. It is Venetian Isle Condos behind Papa Rocco's on the canal in Gulf Shores. VRBO #910888

Hope you enjoy your stay!!

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I celebrated our anniversary in Orange Beach and stayed in this unit. It had an amazing view from the balcony and was quite comfortable for 2 and reasonably priced.

I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a nice base for visiting this area.

Thanks Again!

My husband and I had an awesome time. We spent much of it enjoying the spectacular views from the balcony of this 9th floor condo. It was well equipped, clean and comfortable. I remember reading the comments and reviews about this condo and recalled one comment about the bed and it is true we slept very well. We were very satisfied with our stay here and hope that one day we will be able to come back and stay here again. Sincerely, Tom and Dianne

Great Complex with Wonderful View

  • 4 of 5

This unit is in a great complex with a wonderful view of the gulf and perfect for two people. The unit was clean, and the bed was comfortable. It was our first time to Orange Beach. We met some nice people, walked on the beach, watched dolphins from the balcony, and utilized the pool during the day. The complex is centrally located and very secure. The owners and the rental company were very friendly and easy to work with.
