Overview

About the property

Upscale 1 Bedrm @Phoenix 10! Best location on the beach! Right next to Florabama

Phoenix 10 is in a prime location right on the beach. It is literally on the FL/AL state line next to the World Famous Florabama. Everything you need is practically within walking distance. My husband and I purchased this condo at the beginning of 2015. We love vacationing in Orange Beach, and only preferred to stay at Phoenix X when we went, which is what prompted us to want a condo in this complex. It is gated and safe, offers many amenities, most are shown in the pics below.

Not only is Phoenix 10 right on the beach, the majority of what we love to do there is either steps away from the sand, right next door at Florabama, or right across the street at the Yacht Club on the water, or at the new Flora-bama Ole River Bar. You can walk 2 min to any of those, sometimes we go 2 days without even getting in the car. However, there is no shortage of great food and beach bars with great views within 5 min if you decide to venture out as well. Cobalt and The Gulf restaurants are both excellent, both on the water, and both less than 5 min from the condo making a left out of the complex. They are both located at the AL pass bridge. Sometimes we enjoy just relaxing on the balcony in the condo, and enjoying the oceanfront view from the 8th floor. Most mornings, kind of early we usually see Dolphins swimming and playing close to the shore from the balcony window.

We have upgraded the condo since we purchased it. It has all new furniture. The living room has been upgraded with a new Couch which pulls out to a Queen Sleeper Sofa. The bedroom has a new king size bed/large dresser with plenty of drawers, and a nightstand. New, larger flat screen TV's have been swapped out in both the living room, and bedroom. All new decor, linens and bedding. The entire condo has been freshly painted. Granite countertops, stainless appliances, and more. We've put a lot of heart into making this condo nice for ourselves, and our renter's.

Condo is equipped with a full kitchen-stove, microwave, oven, washer/dryer, a full bathroom with tub/shower combination. Dining table for 4. Patio table and chairs on balcony. There is a 4 person max occupancy for this condo.

We hope you enjoy our condo and have a wonderful vacation!

If you've stayed at Phoenix X before, then you may know a lot of it, but check it out anyway! We learn something new everytime we go. Thanks!

About April Proctor

My husband and I started coming to Orange Beach several years ago. After several visits, we had fallen in love with the area, and the Phoenix X complex in particular. Most everything we like to do is either next door or across the street, if not right out on the beach, or at the pool. We usually enjoy venturing out to The Wharf Marina one afternoon or evening. It's about 10-12 min from the Condo. The Wharf Pkwy is a very quaint village area with the perfect blend of variety for adults, and families both. At The Wharf you will find yourself strolling along the 2 lined streets with a mixture of shopping, restaurants ranging anywhere from slightly upscale to casual outdoor patio atmospheres to ice cream shops to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar for adults who want some live music, and more nightlife. Orange Beach in general has no shortage of terrific live bands pretty much almost anywhere anytime afternoon, or night. Also located at The Wharf is an outside Amphitheatre, which is growing hugely in popularity. It has hosted multiple famous artists such as Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffet, Kid Rock, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, Kenny Chesney, and many more.

Why April Proctor chose Orange Beach

Phoenix 10 is directly next door to the World Famous Flora-bama bar. No need to drive if staying at our condo, it is a 2 min walk at best when you exit the front door of the lobby of Phoenix X. This hangout gets it's name because it is literally on the FL/AL state line. There is always something going on at Flora-bama, day or night. It is not unusual for them to have live music on the beach during the daytime. You can enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean if you wish to sit outside & eat, drink, or just hang out, or walk inside for indoor seating. From happy hour on, & sometimes during the day they always host excellent bands, & musical talent. At night the crowd is of all ages, & there is no shortage of people watching. Football season is a biggie at Flora-bama. I highly recommend you try one of their signature drinks-called a Bushwacker! My husband & I love this drink from the Caribbean, and Flora-bama is famous for theirs as well. Drink 2 bushwackers, then go from there! :) No driving required. You only have a 2 min walk back to the condo! They do always have a cab waiting outside for any friends that may need one. We usually like to spend our day at the beach right in front of our condo, then stroll up to Florabama around happy hour. During the summer months it's a must to catch Big Earl's show/band on Fridays and Saturdays at 5:30 pm. Get there at 4:30 or so, have a couple bushwackers. His show is very entertaining, & will have you laughing out loud. Good times. If you walk across the street, located behind the Waffle House on the water (it is kind of hidden) you will find the Yacht Club. Don't let the fancy name fool you! It's described as 'fine dining in flip flops". The Yacht Club is casual, and relaxing anytime of day-lunch, mid-afternoon, or dinner. Gorgeous view of Ono Island, most of the time you will see a couple boats cruise up to the shore, &dock to eat or hang out. It is great. Everything you need is right on the beach here to have a great vacation

Beautiful condo made for a perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to return to Phoenix X for our summer beach trip because we loved the location on the east end of Orange Beach away from the traffic and crowds. We chose this particular condo because of the beautiful photos and all of the great reviews from former renters. We were not disappointed! The condo owner, April, was so helpful before we ever even arrived, offering information about rental arrangements, shopping, restaurants, etc. We knew we would arrive before the 4:00pm check-in time, and she was kind enough to text me and let me know when the cleaning crew was done so we could check in. Checking in was so easy: stop at the office to get a parking pass, park, unload, and let the relaxation begin! The condo was perfect for us. It was lovely, so comfortable, and the beach views from the balcony were gorgeous. The kitchen was well supplied with all the dishes and utensils we needed, and there were plenty of fresh, fluffy towels -- much better than the last condo we rented. It was everything we were hoping for and more. Thank you, April, for your warm welcome and hospitality. We look forward to coming back for another vacation in your beautiful home away from home!

Upgraded living space with beautiful decor. Amazing views and access to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect size for our family of 4! Pleasing to the eye and comfortable. The condo itself has everything you need to live comfortably for the week...no need to pack a bunch because the commercial grade washer and dryer means you can quickly wash up anything you need! We all said we brought too much! We made several meals there and found all the basics we needed to eat in for quick bites between the fun! The condo's pool was never overcrowded and there was plenty of room on the easy access private beach to enjoy. I wouldn't hesitate to rent here again. The property owner was responsive to all of my questions and offered lots of suggestions for places to dine and things to do. We never heard any other tenants and weren't disturbed at all by any activities. Met lots of nice people just visiting and people who lived there too. We spent the little bit extra to rent a pair of beach chairs and umbrella for our 4 days which to us was worth the money to have the chairs set up and waiting each day and not have to drag them all sandy back to the condo or take up space in the tightly packed car. Seriously one of the best and easiest trips ever!

Our 2nd Stay Just as Amazing as the 1st

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time at the Proctor condo. Everything is in pristine condition and has all the amenities you need for a beach vacation. We can't wait to return (minus the tropical storm and tornado warnings)!

We always love eating at Colbalt, but this time tried Fishers which has become our all time favorite. It's more upscale than the other restaurants we'd been to, so it's nice for a special occasion if you feel like dressing up a little. Great cocktails and food!

Thank you again for a nice, safe place to stay!

Awesome little coffee/ice-cream/frappucino shop right across the street. Florabama bar 2 min walk right next door for excellent music-live bands, oysters, food, and great drinks. Most fun place ever! Florabama Yacht Club-very low key (across the street) for hanging out, and relaxing by the water to eat. The nearby Wharf marina for shopping and sightseeing. Many other restaurants, shops etc nearby as well. You could rent a boat for a half day or so, and go fishing if you want. There is lots to do!
