About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps up to 9 Adults/Kids plus 3 More Kid Spaces

Our condo, 511 on the Gulf, is on the top floor of a low-density, 5-story complex, Harbour Place. The complex offers a heated indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub, which are lighted with cool colors at night. The walkway to the beach is lighted at night as well, which is nice for your after-dark beach exploration.

The glorious gulf-front views from this unit are amazing! The large, king master suite sits on the southeast corner with direct, panoramic views of the beach. Even the master bath has a gulf view. Enjoy the views and the gulf breeze from our balcony looking out over the pool and out to the gulf. It has a sturdy table with 6 chairs and is a great place to watch for dolphins.

The second bedroom is nearly as big with a convertible king bed (two brand-new twin XL beds that can be easily separated to accommodate your preference) and attached full bath. We also have an extra twin mattress that can be pulled out for additional sleep space. We just added a new sectional sofa with a pullout queen sleeper with a gulf view. A favorite with the kids is the “pirate room,” which has a custom bunkbed with two full-sized mattresses and a twin pullout trundle that altogether sleeps 5 in addition to 2 hallway “junior bunks.”

Our beautiful condo has all tile floors, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances. We have a fun decor with a “beachy” look, including a colorful hand-painted dining table.

This unit is well-appointed for families. There is a DVD player and TV in each of the bedrooms and the living room, DVDs, and a PlayStation 2 complete with an assortment of games. We have a beach umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards, a big bin of sand toys, a large beach bag, floats, and an air pump. We also have a booster seat, high chair and a Pack ‘n Play portable crib for our smallest guests.

We welcome your family and friends to enjoy our beautiful vacation home. We know you all will love it as much as we do.

About Cindy and Dee Baxter

Dee is a Professional Land Surveyor, and I oversee supply-chain operations for three hospitals and an outpatient surgery facility. We live in Indianapolis, Indiana, where we raised our two daughters. Our family is very close, and I am thankful the girls live nearby, because now we have four grandchildren to love and entertain. We work hard, but we love to travel whenever we have a chance. The powdery white sand, clear water, and Gulf breeze have been calling our names for a while. We love living in Indiana, but the memories we have of family vacations spent on the Gulf Coast are something we truly cherish. ~ Dee and Cindy Baxter

Cindy and Dee Baxter purchased this condo in 2016

Why Cindy and Dee Baxter chose Orange Beach

When we found this condo, we knew it would be the perfect place to spend time with not just our children but also our grandchildren. We have to give thanks to the previous owners who made 511 on the Gulf a wonderful place for us and all of our renters to make new memories. A 3-bedroom condo was a must. We had looked at a dozen other condos on the coast in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores but this one actually had the luxury of a third bathroom.

The view to the East is amazing with only houses for a long stretch. Nearby to the west lies Gulf State Park, making this area quieter and less crowded than a lot of other beach towns. Harbour Place has a Gulf-side outdoor and indoor heated pool and a hot tub, so our family and our guests can enjoy water activities year-round. Since Harbour Place is a low-density property, with only 65 units, the pool areas are not crowded like they can be in some of the larger complexes. Overall, this is the perfect home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

The "pirate room" is designed for kids and sleeps 5.

Junior bunks in foyer alcove provide more sleep space for kids.

Master and 2nd bedroom both have king beds (convertible to twins in the 2nd bedroom).

Master is on a corner and has 5 gulf-front/gulf-view windows.

Brand-new sectional sofa has a queen sleeper.

Dining room and bar altogether seat a total of 12.

Complex has an indoor/outdoor heated pool and hot tub.

Play station 2 setup in the kids room.

Many movies for kids and family

Perfect place to stay with children!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained, clean and right on the beach. This is the second time we have stayed in this condo and we will be back. If you have kids this place is a must. From baby beds, high chairs, beach toys and towels, this room has everything you need to enjoy your time away with the kids without packing the entire house.

Great location, awesome family condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time. We were two families with several young children. The kids' pirate-themed room was perfect. Kids would spontaneously play with the pirate ship bunk beds and the pirate dress up clothing. Great selection of games and toys as well, which they loved. They had such a blast, and that was just the condo. Plenty of sleeping and eating space for a big group. The beach is beautiful and clean, and the condo is beach front. The pool at the condo is perfect too - half outdoor, half indoor with a hot tub. The condo was very clean, well stocked, and just liked the pictures. You can't go wrong with this place, it was wonderful.

A Gem on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time here and we continue to be impressed. The unit is just about as close to perfect as you can get in terms of amenities, location, and comfort. The view from the balcony and master bedroom is spectacular. We went this last time with friends and our 4 year-old daughter who loved the pirate bedroom and keeps asking when we are going back! Cindy Baxter is a joy to work with and they do a wonderful job staying in contact and keeping the place up. We highly recommend this property.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It was very clean and well organized. The owners thought of everything we could ever need. (including an abundant of beach towels and beach chairs!!! We loved the decor and it was very spacious. Great location in Orange Beach. The owners were very attentive checking in on us to see if we needed anything. Most do not do that unless you have a problem and you contact them. We will definitely be back next year!!!!! Thank you Cindy for everything!!!!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I are a group of college students who were looking for a place to stay and had a hard time finding one(because we were college students) and they so kindly trusted us to stay in their condo. It was absolutely beautiful and very well kept up and worth every penny! It's spacious and good for friends or family. They have so many things unlike other condos that you can benefit from like, towels, beach chairs(tons), plates, silverware, all kitchen material, a washer and dryer, and many more things to satisfy every need. I have personally stayed at other condos that did not have all of these things like 511 on the gulf did. I highly recommend this condo!
