About the property

High demand, Luxury Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths. High frequency or repeat guests.

This family oriented condo is not suitable for college breakers. Occupants are verified carefully.

As with any real estate, LOCATION MATTERS! Our Bristol Tower, 20th floor 3 bed and 3 bath unit has the most spectacular combination of expansive, unencumbered views, privacy and amenities. A close examination of condo properties will reveal that only a very small percentage of units offer the ability for guests to lounge on the balcony without facing other condos and/or being within direct view from the walkway below. At the Beach Club the very best views face slightly to the West. Look at our pictures and you will observe the balcony view looking off to both the East and the West, are virtually unobstructed. Not to mention outstanding views out the back of the unit! Now compare with other units. Many look into other units. If the view matters and if privacy is a consideration we welcome the comparison!

This is a premier, Club Level, 3 bedrooms and 3 bath unit at Alabama’s finest destination luxury resort. The Beach Club is a fully self-contained state of the art complex offering an unsurpassed variety of activities, luxury and conveniences for the discerning vacationing family. Be it the onsite fine-dining (or casual if you prefer), 5 pools, 4 hot tubs, professional tennis courts and play ground or nearby championship golf (Kiva Dunes is but a mile away!), the Tanger Outlet Mall and the infamous Florbama country bar (think Jimmy Buffet), your every entertainment need can be met! For the history and nature lovers, within a short walk, there’s birding and hiking at the 6,500 acre, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge along with the grounds of historic Fort Morgan.

The top several floors of the Bristol Towers are designated “Club Floors” offering significantly upgraded amenities to the units. Ours offers a tasteful nautical motif with original art, thick granite counter tops, beautiful travertine floors throughout accented with tropical wood furnishings. We have continuously up-dated the entire unit. Replaced very recently include all major kitchen appliances, the furnace and air conditioner, most all the lounge furniture and all flat screen TV’s/DVD’s. Just installed is a Bose 130 Home Theater System. A unique feature recently added for safety and luxury, is the all glass, center-entry shower door system, to the master shower/jetted tub area. The center door articulates both 120 degrees into the shower and 120 degrees out of the shower area replacing the traditional sliding doors that can be very difficult to navigate. We pride ourselves in the attention to detail to provide an “error-free” experience for our guests.

In addition to spectacular panoramic views offered by the nearly 200 square foot deck, there is high-end patio furniture including 2 fully reclining lounges, a table which can accommodate up to six and an additional sitting area with 2 swivel rockers and end tables. Be it having morning coffee or evening cocktails and dinner while watching the sunset, you will be spoiled!

Our kitchen not only contains newly upgraded appliance but it offers the adventurous cook about every utensil needed for whatever dish you wish to prepare. We are surprised by the number of guests who have commented about the completeness of the kitchen! The tropical wood dining area comfortably seats 6 at the main table and is augmented with two place-settings at the nearby counter/bar.

The living area has in-place seating for seven to include a large couch (convertible), three chairs and a leather, European recliner and ottoman. It is designed with convenient access to the large 50 inch flat screen and Bose 130 System in the entertainment area were you can watch your favorite Blue Ray DVD or access the our premium entertainment package. The custom made floor to ceiling draperies (in all rooms!) allows for a “dark out” for optimum daytime viewing of your favor movie or to take a casual nap on the couch or recliner.

We view a clean bed as a basic right of our guest!. Every bed, for every guest, for each turnaround is completely cleaned as is done by the best hotels. You can always lie in and on your bed with confidence!

The Master bedroom has its own access to the balcony. The comfort afforded by the king-size, luxury padded bed may entice you to purchase one for your home (as we have done). There is a 42” flat screen TV with the same premium entertainment channel access as the living room as well as a Blue Ray, DVD player. The tropical décor will elicit a feeling of being “in the islands.” An important feature you will be hard pressed to find anywhere is the shower stall access described earlier. The center entry is not just a convenience, it is essential!

The “second master” bedroom, located at the opposite end of the unit faces out over Mobile Bay. On a clear day you can see all the way to Mobile! There is an equally comfortable queen bed. The décor is brightly tropical. It has its own 32 inch flat screen TV and Blue Ray, DVD player. There is a full en-suit bath. The third bedroom has two twin beds along with its own flat screen TV and DVD player. Just across the hall is located the third bath which is also accessible from the rest of the unit for daily use.

VALUE MATTERS! Not only are we competitively priced with other 3 bedroom units (even though our unit is at the high end of amenities offered), when you compare with the 'big boys' who manage multiple condos, you save hundreds. While there is an additional charge for the club use (should you want to use it) you do not pay the fixed 7% resort fee, either.

Our mission is to provide a very special vacation experience at a value that entices our guests to return year after year. We are the owners and you deal directly with us for personalized service and value. We have outstanding cleaning and maintenance services, located nearby to handle any situation. It is always kept in top condition. Come and relax in our oasis by the sea!

About The Owner

Carol and I are native 'New Englander's and have grown up near the sea. We have lived in several states and have also lived in Jamaica. We have been avid sailors through most of our lives.

We chose the Fort Morgan peninsula and the Beach Club in particular, for it's tranquility among the finest beaches in the USA. Our family gatherings have included our two sons' families with four grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

The beach is spectacular and The Beach Club is a first class resort offering upscale amenities. Our unit has been professionally maintained and upgraded continuously with high end furnishings and art work. We want our guests to be not only impressed, but to want for nothing. We are the owners and we take pride in our service quality providing the utmost care to make your experience exceptional. Consequently, we are fortunate to have a large number of repeat guests.

What makes this condo unique

The location of our unit in the Beach Club offers the best views in the entire complex. Let's face it, looking straight ahead most units have great views of the ocean. What our Bristol 2007 offers is the breath of the view looking East, West North and South without looking into other units. That is what truly separates the experience from the average and why the higher floors cost tens of thousands more than lower floors.

You will be amazed and delighted by your experience.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! It was obvious the owners put in extra time and care to ensure the condo was clean and comfortable for its guests. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils for preparing meals. The weather turned very cold and windy, so unfortunately we did not get to enjoy the wonderful outside deck. We hope to go another time when it's warmer.

Top Notch Owners

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was best case scenario. Ray and Carol made us feel welcomed and prepared- their information packet was thorough and very helpful. The beautiful furnishings and views were amazing by themselves, but the little details made our family vacation that much better. On the kitchen counter, you'll find an "honor bar" that instructs to take a bottle of wine in exchange for another- these are my kind of people!

There is also a basket in the kitchen with tons of restaurant menus and recs of things to do- this was so helpful for the "what's for dinner" dilemma. The kitchen was fully stocked, and we had everything we needed to make meals in order to save a few bucks.

Don't be put off by the 13 mile drive to Gulf Shores. Ft. Morgan is beautiful and totally worth it. The Beach Club is the only condo on this section of the beach which allowed for a much less crowded view.

Hurricane Irma threatened to head toward the gulf the week of our stay, and Ray was great to stay in touch with me for weather updates. I'm telling you, these owners are the best.

Overall, 5 star stay and we would definitely go back.

The view is worth the price of admission!

GREAT CONDO!!! GREAT VIEW!!! GREAT OWNERS!!! The Beach Club is Great. The 10 or 12 mile drive from Gulf Shores is well worth not having to fight big crowds on beach and in nearby restaurants. The owners are the best I've ever dealt with. Would not have changed a thing!
