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 Alabama

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.

The Best Vacation Spot !!

  • 5 of 5

5 stars again ! We have stayed at the Tice condo 4 years in row and I am already looking forward to next year. The beach is always clean and never crowded and water is always perfect. This year we splurged and rented the chairs and umbrella that are already set up on the beach, money well spent. The stores and restaurants are easily accessible, due to work schedules I arrived a day before my husband and stayed an additional day after he left, I traveled around as a tourist and had a great time alone- plenty of things to do or just sit on the beach and read a book and enjoy a beverage ! I recommend going to Pensacola to Jim Patti's seafood market for the freshest seafood and they will steam your shrimp for you , Tin Top for a wonderful dinner and Nelson fishing charter for a great inland fishing trip.

Great for a family!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 3! King sized bed for the parents and a bunk bed in the hallway for our little one! Quick access to local grocery stores kept costs down and there was a great kitchen with cups and dishes available. We had an easy walk to the beach and it wasn't very crowded at all. We look forward to our next visit!

Very clean, well maintained, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores & we were not disappointed. The condo was just what our family of 4 needed. My girls loved the bunk beds. We sat on the balcony every morning and watched dolphins swim at the end of the pier next to the property. We liked the security of the locked gates to the beach keeping it private. And also liked the keyless entry into the condo itself. The storage unit on the ground floor was great for storing all the beach toys, boogie boards, & chairs! The pool or beach were never crowded. Plenty of great restaurants to choose from. The only issue we had was actually exiting the parking lot onto the main road was sometimes a challenge. We would go back! Thank you!

Relaxation Unlimited

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Orange Beach in the same condo, unit 24, in Emerald Skye. It's adorably decorated. The view is spectacular. Husband loved the balcony; wife loved the beach! It is conveniently located for shopping. Wonderful restaurants are within easy driving distance (most under 10 miles). We will be returning next year for another relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

Cute beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our stay! The owner was extremely helpful when I contacted him after leaving the key code and parking pass at home.....and we were already on the road a couple of hours. 😫? We arrived and the owner had taken care of getting a new parking pass and emailed us all the other important information. Couldn't have asked for better customer service! And the condo was cute, clean and perfect for our family of four!
