About the property

This top floor condo, named “The Dolphin” by its owners, is freshly updated throughout. It’s a spacious three bedroom, three bath beauty that is all you've been looking for in a vacation destination! The condo is beautifully and tastefully decorated from tip to tail. From the electronic door entry lock (no keys or card to misplace) and the polished granite Dolphin floor medallion which greets you at the front door to the expansive balcony with its zero-gravity lounge chairs, this condo beckons you inside and sets the mood with whispers of tranquility and fun. The wall to wall textured porcelain floors lend an elegant feel to the entire unit. The floor to ceiling windows in both the living area and the master bedroom afford unparalleled stunning views of the surrounding waters. The wet bar, with its high capacity ice-maker, deep sink, multi-speed blender, martini shaker, and glasses is ready for you to concoct all your favorite adult beverages while the stereo with its built in CD player, iPod and Android docks can play your favorite tunes. Come ready to enjoy this high-end condo and complex with all the amenities you could hope for.


Orange Beach is a seafood lover’s paradise, but for those nights you just don't feel like going out to eat the kitchen is fully appointed with everything you’ll need to whip up your favorite meal. The spacious dining room table seats 6, with additional seating for 3 at the kitchen bar. However, with all the spectacular views & sunny Gulf weather you may choose instead to eat at the large balcony table that seats 6. Here you can enjoy the Gulf breezes and the outstanding views! Want to grill instead? There are eight charcoal grills on the grounds!

About Kat McGowan

The owners live in the Mobile Alabama area. They fondly remember the beach trips of their youth which led them to seek out a vacation property on the shores of the Gulf. They both enjoy the beach life and look forward to making this their retirement home in the distant future.

Kat McGowan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kat McGowan chose Alabama

This property is like coming home! - A home with every amenity you can think of but with no grass to cut. From snorkeling, cycling, fishing, boating, to enjoying local music, this property puts you in the mix of things while keeping you far enough away to avoid all the main drag traffic noise and nightmares. Everything is within a short 15 minute taxi ride or car drive. Living in this community is a joy that the owners want to you to experience!

What makes this condo unique

The owners fell in love with Phoenix on the Bay I from the first moment they saw it, but what truly sold them on this condo complex and unit was the spectacular views, convenience, and amenities! Other factors were that there is covered parking only steps from the front door, an enormous balcony, a large spacious floor plan, a complete workout area, and both indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. These are the unique benefits they are sure you will enjoy as well!

Great location away from the crowds!! Close to the best restaurants!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the weeks before arrival to the end of our stay it was AMAZING! We stay in Orange Beach every year and decided to try the Bay side this time. The children really enjoyed the pool! The adults loved the convenience of the best restaurants within a 5 min drive. Kat was so helpful during our stay and was very responsive to all of my emails. The condo was very up to date and SPOTLESS! We could not have been more pleased with this condo. Cannot wait to go back!

Owner's Response: We cannot wait to have you and your family back! We absolutely love this review because you have explained in a few short sentences what is so great about POB: Best Restaurants, away from the crowds, and the location on the Bay. Being on the Bay puts you 1.6 miles from the Beaches, 15 minute boat ride to the Gulf (5 min from your own Island), and right by the movies, shopping and concerts! Plus all the activities at POB complex make it a safe haven for adults and children alike if you never want to leave. It is never a chore and always my pleasure to work with such great folks as yourselves. Thank you for your kind words and we will be seeing you soon! Kat

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! Family fun and relaxation in a spacious and comfortable condo is what we love to hear from our valued guest. As far as a soccer field Orange Beach has one of the best. Since 2003 the SEC Women’s Soccer Tournaments have been held at the Orange Beach Sportsplex. When you come next year you and your family will have to check it out. Keep us in mind for all your downtime getaways. We will start to run fall and winter specials so check back soon. Kat

Summer break

  • 5 of 5

This unit was well kept, up to date, and has great scenic views. We come down to POB every year for the opening of Red Snapper season because of the convenient access to the Gulf of Mexico. This year we could not go Snapper fishing because of offshore weather conditions so we spent most of our time around the condo facility. I was sure glad POC has such great amenities. Our boys never complained of getting bored and everyone rested comfortably each night.

Kat was especially great to work with on booking and the check-in/out procedures were very simple. We would definitely recommend this unit and this complex for a great family get away!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review! Like you, we hated that we were not able to get on the Gulf to catch our “fill of snapper” (3 fish) during the 3 day “snapper season”. We like to fish as well and the Gulf of Mexico just did not want to cooperate with anyone this year. The shortened season really chaps our boat bottoms! Thankfully you still enjoyed everything POB has to offer kids and adults alike. Maybe next year you will come down and the Gulf will be as smooth as glass and the season will be extended to an entire week………..we’re hoping too! Kat

A Family Favorite

We are never disappointed when we stay at this property! The unit is gorgeous, and the views of the pool and bay from the balcony make all of your troubles disappear. The owners are extremely accommodating and reply to questions and comments very quickly. We will definitely return.
