Overview

About the property

2 Bed, 2 bath, New! King, Queen, Bunks and Sleeper sofa. Steps from sand!

Bring your flip flops to this little slice of paradise! This MIGHT be the cutest condo in the complex! This low rise complex is reminiscent of days gone by. Park at the front door, drop your suitcases off and you'll at the beach while the people in the high rises will still be waiting for a cart or elevator. Be sure to wear your flip flops as you meander on the path through the dunes that open up to the breath-taking, white sandy beaches of the beautiful turquoise gulf. Spend the morning collecting sea shells, making sandcastles, watching seagulls and taking a stroll to the jetty where the boats come and go through Perdido Pass. This central area of Orange Beach is not loaded with all the tourist attractions, so it is a nice, quiet step back in time. Just a short walk pass the outdoor pool and you are at your charming condo that has just about everything brand new! New appliances, counter tops, floors, cozy furniture and decor! Read a book or play a game. In the afternoon, you might want to check out the marina across the street, checking out all the fish caught from the chartered fishing boats? There are plenty of things to do that are close enough, but not TOO close! Perhaps, the outlet mall is calling your name? The kids might convince you to play a game of putt-putt or play at the water park, all of which are no more than 10 minutes away. Be sure to bring your bikes or walking shoes so you can enjoy the serene nature and bike trails nearby. If you're lucky, you might even see an alligator sunning or faraway in the water. Fish at the pier, shop at the outlet mall, golf, visit the zoo, the nature center, the aviation museum or just sit at the beach and soak in the sun. Be sure to come back in time to experience the most colorful, beach sunset with your favorite person and beverage. Come to our little home away from home and make it yours! Just grab your flip flops and you are ready to relax! White sand, shells, turquoise water and that slight beach breeze will have you hooked!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for providing a location for us to rest and spend some quality time together. It was everything we hoped for and more and exactly what we needed for our spring break! With everyone's busy schedules, it was so rejuvenating to unwind, catch up and enjoy the beautiful scenery and weather. The week was well spent relaxing no the beach, swimming, playing volleyball, boating, cooking meals together and exploring the area. We appreciated your recommendations for local areas as well. It is evident that you all put a lot of time, thought and effort into the renovation. Not only does the condo look beautiful but it is functional and really feels like home. If we ever vacation in Alabama in the future, I'll be sure to be in contact. If not, I'll be recommending your condo to family and friends! Thank you for making the renting process so easy for us! Overall it was a great experience! All the best!

Perfect location on the beach and a quiet small community

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely cared for and prepared for our stay. It is right on the beach! If you get tired of the beach then there are books, puzzles, or movie to watch. The owners have provided a book of information about local restaurants and activities. F you are looking for a charming quiet location, this is it. This is our second year at Flip Flop Hideway and we are looking forward to next year.

Right on the beach...and not another high rise

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was well decorated and had plenty of space for a family of 4. The kids loved having their own beds and we loved a little privacy. It was also nice to not be in one of the numerous high rises in Gulf Shores. This was a much better beach experience and we loved that we could walk right on to the beach without crossing that crazy busy road. We really appreciated the suggestions of places to go and overall just a wonderful first visit to Gulf Shores.

Owner's Response: Ian, Thank you for the lovely comments. We also love being able to just park right in front and not have to worry about an elevator or shopping cart for all of your belongings. So happy that you had a good time.

Super cute decorations!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was cute. Comfy beds, short walk to the beach. Pool was pretty basic. Master bath didn't drain well and screen door was off the track. Owner was responsive to messages, but maintenance never followed up to fix issues.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the issues during your stay. We regret that maintenance was not able to arrive sooner during your stay (peak July 4th week). We have discussed this with the maintenance manager and are assured future calls will be responded to in a more timely manner. We take great pride in the unit being in tip-top condition with the guests comfort being our highest priority. We refunded an additional amount along with your full deposit which we felt was fair for your inconvenience. Thank you again...D&K

Car: recommended

Walk down to the jetty and see the boats passing by through Perdido Pass. Be sure to bring your bikes or walking shoes to enjoy the many nature trails and nature center. And you will absolutely love the nearby Gulf Shores State Pier! Just a hop, skip and a jump away is Gulf Shores with all the tourist vacation fun; bumper cars, putt-putt, water park, zip lines, etc...There are also many wonderful restaurants nearby (many of them on the water). You might want to do some people watching at the famous Flora Bama Lounge?. It is situated on the FL/AL line (hence the name and claims to be one of the last American Roadhouses). A fun down-home cooking restaurant to visit is Lambert's, the home of the throwed roll and yes, they actually throw rolls at you! You can para-sail, jet-ski, rent a pontoon or go deep sea fishing, if your stomach can handle it! You may want to take the drive or ferry over to Mobile and visit USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park? It's also just about 40 minutes to the cute, little town of Fairhope, AL, an adorable, little place to walk around, shop and have lunch. Perhaps you want to go to the National Aviation Museum in Pensacola or try to catch The Blue Angels practicing there? It's only about 30 minutes away! There is so much to do in the area, but once you get to our little piece of paradise, you might just want to grab your flip flops and head to the beach!
