About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible sofa bed(s), 2 bunks, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Clarification: Some of the units at Lighthouse advertised as 2 BR/2 Ba actually have 1 full BR, a bunk room, 2 Baths and a very small living/dining area. Just in case you're really looking for 2 full Bedrooms, we wanted to clarify that IS what our unit has.

Our unit is on the 15th floor, almost Penthouse level!! If this is not for you, see our listing at 43334 for a lower level unit. We have tiled the living area and upgraded the bedrooms with designer carpet. With Tuscan red warmth and a mix of new and antique, quaint and comfortable we think you'll enjoy this year's trip to the beach completely. We do hope you agree that we have more character than the usual all white, wicker Condo rental.

The building is loaded with amenities plus we've tried to add some nice up-grades for your special family vacation. After you park on the 2nd level in the covered parking deck (or third level - not covered- if 2nd is full), take one of the middle high speed elevators to your heavenly home above the Gulf of Mexico. Your front door is just steps away to the east of the central elevators. Windows all the way across the Gulf side of the condo, living area and master bedroom balcony frame the 635' of private beach & oceanfront.


300+ count bed linens

Separate Whirlpool Tub and Shower in Master Bath

Double Vanity and Walk-in Closet in Master Bath (ladies!!!)

9' Ceilings and ceramic tile flooring

Laundry Room (not closet!) with full-size Washer & Dryer, Pantry and Cabinets in fully-equipped Kitchen with plenty of storage

Large Balcony for entertaining and relaxing (Dining for 4, Lounges for 2, Buffet)

There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen-size bed in the guest room, a bunk room for the kids (sleeps two) and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living area. As there are only two bathrooms, though nice, we don't recommend this unit for more than six adults(again, see 43334 for a 3 bedroom unit that will sleep 8 adults). The bunks are custom built in a separate, small room and are very sturdy but not intended for adults.

There are High-Def cable flat screen digital TVs with BluRay in the living (52"), master (39") and guest room (27"). There is a stereo with i pod CD changer in the entertainment center in the living area, and 3 telephones for local calls. The building has wireless internet service.

The Dining Table seats six or there is bar stool seating at the kitchen counter for four.

Our unit is centrally located in the building, just steps away from one of the four (4) high-speed elevators to carry you from your covered parking space.

The condo is equipped with a Temp Saver system that allows guest to regulate the condo temperature between 66-76 degrees.

The building is loaded with amenities: 2 Gulf Front swimming pools, indoor heated swimming pool, nicely equiped exercise room and sauna, Hot tubs, as well as enclosed lobbies surrounding the elevators.


* Must be 25 or older to rent unit; Adults & families only.

* $300 refundable reservation/security deposit due within one week of making reservation

* Full rental price due 30 days prior to reservation date. $105 cleaning fee. The Association requires Guests to pay a per stay parking fee to Security upon entrance to property.

* Weekly rentals only mid-March thru Oct; weekly rental only for Thanksgiving week; 5 night minimum otherwise

* Call or e-mail for availability.

Any large commercial building of this size may have maintenance, repairs or improvements made from time to time. Examples may include but are not limited to painting, cleaning, elevators, pool heaters, vandalism to building or grounds.

Even nearby construction may be distracting but not under the control of our Association. Individual owners have very little voice as to timing. We will disclose anything that we are aware of that could cause your vacation to be less than perfect. But, just as with the weather, cable or utility outages, etc ... some things are outside of our control. We do wish you a Perfect Vacation!

This is our second time staying at Mr. Pitman's condo. Mr. and Mrs. Pitman are so very kind and a pleasure to work with. Anytime I had a question they were very quick to respond and help. The unit is very nice, spacious, and well equipped. It is in a very good location, close to everything, but not right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. I will always check with Mr. Pitman first when wanting to stay at Gulf Shores.

Wonderful vacation in a beautiful condo on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a 17 hour drive to this beautiful condo in Gulf Shores. We were highly impressed with all that Unit 1508 had to offer for living space for my family of 5 for the week! Very spacious and it instantly felt just like home. All the furniture in the whole Condo was so very comfortable. The couches, chairs, beds, balcony furniture, etc. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen as if we were at home. The cookware & kitchen accessories that were provided exceeded my expectations. The refrigerator & freezer worked wonderfully, as well as the dishwasher. The washer & dryer were quite slow, but worked adequately. We appreciated very much having a washer & dryer in the Unit. Thank you for the convenience! I liked the keypad entry instead of having to carry keys. The convenience of that was wonderful for us & our kids. The pools & hot tubs were beautiful & well maintained. The Condo is literally right on the beach. One quick elevator ride took you straight to the pool area, which led to the beach. Just beautiful! Without hesitation, we would stay in this very Condo again with our family. It is a perfect location to walk everywhere. Each day we picked a new place to walk for lunch/dinner and souvenir shop. It was perfect. I have no complaints. Thank you for ensuring that your Guests have everything needed for a relaxing, wonderful vacation. My Family loved it!

Wonderful place and great owners to work with

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in 1508, it was tastefully decorated, loved the bright colors and all the extras you had added.The sleep number mattress in the guest bedroom was a surprising bonus, you do not find those in rentals, all the linens were really good quality and there was nothing i needed to cook with that was not there.The furniture on the balcony was really nice but could have used a pad on the lounger, after so long it gets pretty hard.{ you see where i spent all my time} i will see you in Dec. for three months this time........Beautiful place

Owner's Response: Love my winter guest to be happy in their home away from home! I will get a good covering for the loungers before your stay for next winter season. Enjoy your summer and thanks for the nice review.

This was our first time to Gulf Shores and it was a very relaxing visit. The furnishings of this condo were very pretty and comfortable.

Our stay was very nice and we would love to stay in this unit again. Thank you Terry and Sharon!
