About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)


Our condo is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and the beach is only a few steps behind the condo. Emerald Skye is a low density (only 37 units). Even in the summer the beach is not crowded like the big high rises. The condo is conveniently located in the heart of Orange Beach and less than 1/2 mile from three grocery stores and two pharmacies.

'Our Little Get-A-Way' is perfect for a couple or small family. Additionally, since the condo is located on the second floor, you will not have to wait for an elevator. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Gulf from the living area or balcony.

From the moment you open the door you will know this is not an ordinary rental unit. We love the condo and treat it as our second home. The large balcony is comfortably furnished for relaxing and enjoying the view. We even have a table for two for romantic evening dinners!

The condominium is very nicely furnished and decorated. The living area is very comfortable and has a 40' flat screen TV and DVD player.

The kitchen is fully equiped with custom cabinetry and an over the range microwave.

The bedroom is private from the rest of the condo and has a king-size bed, 32' flat screen TV, and DVD.

The hallway bunk beds are great for children and can be separated from the living area by a pocket door.

Emerald Skye has a heated pool (March - November), picnic area with charcoal grills, and a nice beach side lounge area to sit and read or enjoy the beautiful view. Additionally, we provide access to our ground floor store room, which contains two very nice beach chairs and umbrella.

A fitness room is located on the ground floor. It is equipped with treadmill, elliptical machine, and stationary bicycle. A full range of hand weights and bench is also available.

This unit is non-smoking except on the balcony. Sorry, no pets permitted.

About Richard Tice

My wife and I have loved the beach our entire married life. Each summer our vacation was taking our two son's to the beach for a week. In 1995 we bought 'Our Little Get-A-Way'. We have enjoyed many happy days at our condo and Orange Beach. Our condo is furnished like a vacation home, not a rental unit.

Richard Tice purchased this condo in 1995

Why Richard Tice chose Orange Beach

Orange Beach/Gulf Shores is a perfect family beach destination. The Alabama beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. The area is family oriented with every thing you want to do just a few minutes drive away. The condo is located very close to grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants, but not in the middle of wall to wall condos.

What makes this condo unique

The condo next door has a lighted pier. The soft lights reflecting the gulf make a beautiful view at night. The condo is low density and never seems crowded.

Lovely and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from my second stay in less than six months, and I hope to return soon. The location is perfect, just right for long walks on the beach; there's great shopping for essentials across the street (Publix, state liquor store, nail salon); there's a vibrant and friendly Episcopal church just a few miles away in Gulf Shores. For my two recent trips, I have come alone, and both the city of Orange Beach and the Emerald Skye building offer a safe and pleasant environment for a single woman. The condo is clean and well-kept, nicely equipped and furnished, and I especially appreciate the Adirondack-style seating on the balcony where I can sit comfortably for hours and gaze at the Gulf. It's the balcony that will keep me coming back!

absolutely beautiful view of the ocean

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay.Bed was exceptionally comfortable.Plenty of pillows.Liked having the binder with menus and recommendations for places to eat.Only downfall was on one side of the parking lot was no left turn out of the lot.Rick even called after we arrived to check and make sure everything was okay. Our stay would have been perfect except we had the luck of bad weather. Lows in the 20's and only up to 30 in the day,the wind was really blowing but did have a couple of days to enjoy the beach.Overall hope to return in future

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the condo. There is no better view of the Gulf!! The state of Alabama has implemented the “no left turn” on almost all Perdido Beach Blvd to help with summer traffic flow.

Peaceful and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We left this morning and are already talking about when we can come back. The location is perfect - we were able to watch dolphins playing in the surf from the couch. You are minutes from the grocery store, shopping, and restaurants. We had our 3 year old son with us and this condo is child friendly and fun. The owners thought of everything to make our stay at the beach the best it could be - kitchen tools, beach toys, and fluffy towels all await. Loved having a full sized washer and dryer and a dishwasher in the unit. We were admittedly a little nervous about this VRBO thing, but this experience was absolute perfection and we look forward to returning soon.

This is a charming and wonderfully decorated family owned Condo stocked with all amenities needed for our stay. Right on the beach in a great location. Come see the Dolphin swim by as you enjoy your coffee on the balcony.
