Cruise ship or condo? It's hard to tell from the view! Step out on the 20th floor balcony of our Crystal Tower penthouse and take in the magnificent ocean view. Relax in one of the lounge chairs, or enjoy your morning coffee at the outdoor dining table of # 2008.

(If your desired dates are not available, please check out my other condo, next door to this one, at www.vrbo.com/1076027.)

Pool, beach club or ocean? It's hard to make a decision! For a quick dip, you will find the indoor pool, outdoor pool and hot tub adjacent to the lobby. Across the air-conditioned walkway (or the blue tunnel, as it is referred to) you will find the largest pool in Gulf Shores. Drift through the lazy river, or lounge in one of the many chairs provided; restroom facilities and showers are also available.

There is a covered dining area, or if you prefer, a more private upper sundeck. OR, proceed down the wooden walkway to l00' of beautiful xx end of the walkway, and when your day at the beach is over, come back and enjoy the hot tub.

Dine in or grill out? Regardless of your choice, you will find all the tools and appliances necessary in our well stocked kitchen. We provide the BBQ tools, you provide the charcoal and food. Benches and tables are found at the grilling area making it easy to be the chef you really are!

King, queen or twin? Whatever your choice or need, we provide all three. Recently added: New Bedspreads, New Pillows, New Hypoallergenic Pillow Covers. Several renters have commented on how comfortable the beds are, but don't take their word for it, come see for yourself. Either way you can enjoy the great HD TVs, complete with DVD players in every room.

Walk through the front door, see the view and immediately you will see why we refer to a stay here as non-stop relaxation.

About Ron 2008 Sikes

I am semi-retired, but still working as a digital forensic examiner in Huntsville, Alabama. Originally from Oregon, I joined the United States Marine Corps, and spent my active duty time in (would you believe) southern California. Following many years there in military software and law practice, I eventually retired back to Oregon. But a former boss made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so I unretired and moved to Huntsville. I now spend a lot of my time in Gulf Shores.

Ron 2008 Sikes purchased this Condo in 2015

Why Ron 2008 Sikes chose Gulf Shores

The amenities in Crystal Tower are superb, and the property is extremely well-maintained. The fact that it was built in 2006 and has the most up to date construction features is another plus. The location is perfect, there is easy load in and out, and the pools and hot tubs are some of the nicest on the beach. The on-site management and security is an additional amenity not found at many other places. NEWS FLASH !!! This unit now has modern 18" porcelain tile throughout. It looks almost like marble. PLUS, it is newly painted with space-expanding semi-gloss on the walls throughout, and fresh white paint on the woodwork. This unit was good before; it is now (in my opinion) absolutely superb! Pictures will be posted soon.

What makes this Condo unique

There are three pools, one indoor and two outdoor, one of which is the largest pool in Gulf Shores. There are two hot tubs, a nicely equipped exercise room, and private access to the beach club. The unit itself is family friendly, and extremely quiet. The balconies are extra large, there are a full-size washer and dryer right in the unit, and the on-site management is there to offer assistance.

Clean, easy access, perfect views from the balcony, close to everything, great for kids, and a great gym area. The owner was so easy to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would definitely return to rent this condo again!

                                                              Beautiful views, easy beach access, pie in the sky

                                                              Ron was very easy to work with. He sent a code to use on the keypad on the door. Parking was easy. Plenty of carts available to haul your bags to the room. Top floor (20th) of Crystal Tower. Views of the beach and the "strip" below were nice. Beautiful countertops and kitchen cabinetry. There were plenty of glasses, bowls, toaster oven, crock pos, frying pans, etc. Huge master bedroom closet. Double sink in large vanity in master bath. Perfect for our family of 5, youngest is 3. Thanks Ron! Will consider booking again.

                                                              We had a great time on our recent visit. The property has everything you need and the location is convenient to everything. The owner is very personable and easy to work with. We will be returning for future stays.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Great! Remember to ask for the repeat renter discount on room charge when you return.

                                                              Very comfortable and clean!

                                                              Wonderful location! Great place and very clean!
