About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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. 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 flat screen and surround sound entertainment area were you can watch your favorite DVD or access the 100 plus TV channels of our premium entertainment package. The main amplification unit has connectivity for your ipod. 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.

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 36” flat screen TV with the same premium entertainment channel access as the living room as well as a 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. To us 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 flat screen TV and DCD 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. We only have this one unit and do not pay a third party charge which can be over 30% of the total. While there is an additional small 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' 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 Alabama

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.

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.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I am originally from South Florida. I need a yearly beach experience to maintain my sanity and this really did it for me. We have been here before and love the Beach Club. The owners here are absolutely great. The apartment is great, clean with enough towels and linen to handle a group of 8. We were only 4 adults and a child and we had a great time. For sure this will be an apartment that we will rent again. I cannot say enough about the owners they were great.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just completed a wonderful six night stay at this condo. Great condo at a lovely quiet (especially in the Fall) beech setting. We regularly visit the Gulf Shores area every summer with our full family, and then again in the Fall for our own quiet time. This condo was great, very comfortable, clean and with nice amenities. We will definitely plan to come back. The two restaurants on property were excellent, no real need to travel into Gulf Shores for meals, but there are several nice places in town. The Beech Club and Fort Morgan Beech are really enjoyable.

My family and I recently completed a weekend stay at this condo and absolutely loved every minute (even with a fair amount of rain). Condo is perfect - great location, great view, great condition, great layout, and wonderful owners (you will love getting to know the owners - they are very attentive and want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible). Schedule your trip to the Beach Club now - you won't regret it!!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved this condo!! We celebrated our daughter's 19th birthday that weekend, and everything was perfect. The view is amazing, the kitchen is fabulous, and the condo is very comfortable. And the owners are so nice to work with. We usually stay at the Beach Club at least twice each summer, and this will definitely be our go-to condo there from now on.

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

this was my first time staying in Gulf Shores. From turning into the resort, you could tell Beach Club was a step above most condo's. Beautiful grounds and very luxurious looking. Having stayed in condo's before at the beach, usually the elevators are a nightmare but the Bristol tower had amazingly fast elevators and we never had to wait.

The condo was a perfect floor plan/set up for our family vacation. 3 adults, 3 children (ages 9&11) and my 5 month old. It never felt crowded, the dining table was perfectly sized and perfect for our card games. I even had room in the living room for my baby's swing and bouncer. The furniture was cozy and comfortable. I surprised myself by cooking more than I usually do at home and had all the supplies I needed. The extra blankets and pillows were great.

I considered getting a guest pass for the facilities but we didn't find it necessary. The Bristol pool, baby pool and hot tub were very clean and the kids stayed in the pool most of the time. They also enjoyed the giant chess and checkers boards. The beach had very soft, white sand that never got too hot.

Once at the Beach Club you really don't have to leave, they have a restaurant right near the entrance and an ice cream/candy shop. During peak summertime it looks like they have multiple food trucks set up in a cute area. Also really close by, before you get to the resort is a convienant store/pizza place. Less than 3 miles to the east is a touristy restaurant, Sassy Bass Amazin' Grill and also a small mini-mart.

My favorite part was listening to the waves on the balcony and sitting on the big wooden swing facing the ocean by the pool area.

It was a great vacation for us and I'd stay again if visiting the Gulf Shores area.
