Awesome Gulf-front 5th floor 3/2 Condo, Just Steps From The Gulf of Mexico!
About Dorenda Doyle
NEWS! I have been selected as a PREMIER PARTNER! And, recently, I was invited to be a Panelist on the HomeAway Voices Portal! ALL of this helps me to be a better Property Manager so I can better serve my GUESTS! I have a sign above every doorway of our 4 properties: Enter as Strangers. Leave as Friends! THIS is my Motto! We are north Alabama residents, but we look forward to our retirement so that we can become permanent LA (Lower Alabama) residents! I'm a retired high school teacher who now does a side-line business of photography & print design, while my husband still runs his own 5-location business. We LOVE boating, fishing, and the beach life in general. Orange Beach is a wonderful place where we have been inviting family, friends, & customers over the past 20 years--plenty of AMAZING restaurants and entertainment venues for the WHOLE FAMILY, and we can't ever complain about the weather! We now have 7 grandchildren, so our "beach home" is everyone's FAVORITE place to go, especially since it's close enough for short 3 day weekend visits, as well as the extended week-long vacations.
Dorenda Doyle purchased this Condo in 1995
Why Dorenda Doyle chose Orange Beach
We initially bought our condo as a getaway for our family since we all love the boating, fishing, beach life so much! One of my husband's business locations is in this area, so it made sense to purchase a permanent place to stay when we're in this area. We chose Windward Pointe because of its location--on the Gulf, only steps to the beach, within walking distance of shopping, groceries, restaurants, as well as nature & adventure parks. The Condo complex itself boasts a tennis court, an indoor heated pool, a hot tub, a state-of-the-art exercise facility, a sauna, an outdoor pool, a kiddie pool, AND endless miles of beach and salt water!
What makes this Condo unique
Even if you aren't into hot tubs, swimming, boating, fishing, surfing, beach-combing, shelling, tanning, or the multitude of other "water-related" activities, step out onto our balcony . . . you'll NEVER WANT TO LEAVE! The sound of the surf, the smell of the salt water, the endless view of miles of white sand and blue water, the most colorful,unforgettable sunrises and sunsets, and the comfy feel of the lounge chairs as you lay back in the shade of the private balcony . . . we'll be surprised if you ever spend any time inside! But, just in case you do, we've furnished our Condo as our home--it is NOT the typical rental-decor! We want you to feel as we do when we stay here: the fun and frolic of a beach home, a little bit of whimsy, and the warmth of having family and friends together for care-free meals and activities. We have our own washer/dryer. Our kitchen is fully stocked. I've put some of my favorite books, games, & DVDs here for you to enjoy. We want you to feel so at home that you'll never want to leave (just like we do!) In addition to all the reasons listed above (why we purchased this condo), you will find the people of this area to be friendly, warm, and welcoming. Come find out why LA (Lower Alabama) and the COASTAL LIFE is so appealing and habit-forming! Our goal is that you'll want to stay forever (or at least come back often!)

Home away from home
Great place to stay with a amazing view of the beach. I would recommend anybody to stay here.
Great Ocean-view Condo
Great condo; amenities in the property are great. Dorenda is a great host and responds immediately to any questions. Will rent again in the future
Location was great with a beautiful view of the beach! The owner was very attentive to our needs. Great value for the price. There were beach toys, beach umbrella and boogie boards for our use that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Easy access to a variety of restaurants, souvenir shops and grocery stores.
Great family vacation!!!
Dorenda was fabulous!!! Great communication before, during and after our stay. The property is well kept and provided everything needed for the perfect vacation. Location was close to the beach and pool. Amazing balcony with the perfect view of the ocean. We saw dolphins every day! Would love to come back again!
The Perfect Family Vacation Venue.
I don't know know where to begin. The property is everything that it is advertised as. Clean, comfortable, safe, fashionable, "child-proof" and convenient to everything. The views were spectacular. The owner offers suggestions on where to eat, shop, worship as well as things to do on a rainy day (we didn't need those!). She is the epitome of "Southern Hospitality". She even brought us a 2nd high chair so my grandson could eat in comfort. My family and I felt like we were staying at a friend's home. We are already looking forward to a return visit next year.
Orange Beach is one of the most beautiful, undiscovered vacation spots on the Gulf of Mexico. The best of all worlds--small town atmosphere, friendly people, a fantastic variety of restaurants and attractions for the whole family. Even if you or your family members aren't WATER ENTHUSIASTS (Fishing, Swimming, Surfing, Boating, etc.), there are still plenty of other activities--photography, birding, hiking, biking, nature tours (by water & on land), cinemas, shopping, concerts by current "big name" entertainers, and plenty of local color in the form of festivals and shows. Orange Beach is our home away from home--our place to go to just get away, to invite friends and family to, and to aspire as our ultimate retirement home!
