Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Caribe is an amazing resort. Upon entering the resort through the 24 hour guarded gate, you'll enter a 23 acre paradise of lush natural landscaping and Caribbean styling that sets a special mood for your most relaxing and fun filled vacation ever. Caribe's amenities are world class. The kids will love the water slides at the three outdoor pools and everyone will enjoy floating on the 'Lazy River.' Indoor pools, jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, fitness center, tennis courts and a 10,000 square foot golf putting green are just a short elevator ride away.

My Condo is furnished for both beauty and comfort. Located on the 8th floor of building D, it provides floor to ceiling views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Ole River. Your can actually see down Perdido Key all the way to Florida. The balcony is a great place to see the kids in the lazy river, feel the fresh salt air, and enjoy the awesome sunrises and sunsets. There are grills provided by Caribe on the bay side for grilling steaks and seafood. You will love being able to access my free wireless network to the internet providing T-1 speed. You can play your own music library with 'itunes' wirelessly through my stereo/computer system or your laptop. A 50 inch high definition LCD TV and DVD system is provided for your viewing pleasure. Each bedroom has their own TV/DVD system.

Just outside the gates, amusement parks and dolphin sight seeing boat trips for the kids, deep sea fishing and pristine golf courses for dad, shopping at unique local stores or the outlet mall in Foley for mom, and of course the miles and miles of sugar white sand beaches all are waiting for you. Nightlife is plentiful in the Orange Beach area. From the infamous 'Flor-Bama' to fine dining, you'll find what you seek. Caribe you'll find is the ultimate vacation!

About John Sparks

I am currently teaching aviation at a high school in Newnan Georgia. I am also a retired Air Traffic Controller. I am married to a wonderful woman, Victoria Sparks. I grew up in Mobile Alabama and my family vacationed in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area often. I always loved the beach, swimming, and fishing. My passions are golf, fishing, and restoring vintage cars. As I near retirement, I look forward to returning to my 'roots'. We plan to live at Caribe at least part time in the future.

John Sparks purchased this condo in 2007

Why John Sparks chose Orange Beach East

Caribe is a five star resort with an on property restaurant

with lots of amenities. You really never have to leave the property.

What makes this condo unique

The beach in Orange Beach is wonderful white sand. Orange Beach was originally a fishing village and the fishing is still some of the best in the world. Charters are available to catch almost anything you have in mind. History buffs will enjoy learning about the forts that protect Mobile Bay. The food is some of the best you will ever put in your mouth. The nightlife is varied and mostly a lot of fun. Have a great time.

Nice condo in a great area

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time! The condo was nice and a good fit for our group. Was able to get in a couple of hours earlier than planned thanks to John calling us and letting us know it was ready. Everything was as was promised!

Caribe is a perfect condo for families!

  • 4 of 5

The facilities at the Caribe were second to none! Our two families enjoyed the 3 different pools (lazy river, slides, and zero entry) with ample deck area to stop for a snack or layout. We rented a boat from Chute for the Skye located at Tacky Jacks Harbor (Highly Recommended!!) and were able to dock the boat in the Caribe Harbor whenever we needed to run up to the condo or pool. This was a highlight of the trip when we visited Pirate's Cove and Robinson Island.

We knew the Caribe was across the street from the beach but were not prepared for the long haul to and from the beach. Luckily they have a "Beach Burrow" service to help cart all your stuff on the 1/4 mile pier once you arrive on the shuttle. If you are a beach hound like we are and want to be out on the beach multiple times per day consider your options. Thankfully, we got beach time while we were on the boat.

The Condo was good for what we needed with 3 kids and 4 adults. I would recommend for some curtains to be added in all bedrooms because it is not very dark for sleeping in. The only other update/fix needed is the ice machine at the wet bar, this would have been a plus to have. Great kitchen for cooking and the balcony has an awesome view! Chairs on the balcony are in need of some love (screws missing, etc.) but were comfortable for sitting out and looking at the Gulf. Laundry area has a utiliy sink, which was great for rinsing off sand toys, and the large washer and dryer came in handy!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at a lot of condos, and this one by far was the most impressive! The only complaint we had was the wifi. The wifi signal was very weak. Couldn't get wifi in the master bedroom or on the balcony, and with 3 teenagers that was tragic. LOL. We had a GREAT time!
