About the property

'Anchors Away' is a great Condominium at Navy Cove Harbor located directly on Mobile Bay on Fort Morgan Peninsula. You dock your boat in slip #20, a dedicated 20 feet by 40 feet boat slip (with power) right next to the condo. This is only one of four premium units which sit directly on the bay with two balconies. The sunsets are spectacular!

Other amenities include pool, hot tub, fish cleaning station, barbecue grills, and a gazebo. Public beach access is a very short walk across the street. From the balconies you can watch ships coming in and out of Mobile Bay or schools of dolphin and other fish swim at your feet. Just steps away is a sandy beach (bayside) to walk, sail or kayak next to Bon Secure Wildlife Refuge. Even if you do not own a boat this is a great place to vacation and relax. The views and sounds of the bay are really special.

'Anchors Away' is a beautifully decorated, two bedroom, two bath Condominium with all of the upgraded features. The living area and guest bedroom have separate balconies over the water. The Condominium features include tile floors, granite countertops, and nine foot ceilings. Beds include a King, two TWINS, and deluxe queen sleeper sofa.

The new Gulf Shores Yacht Club is located next door and provides many additional amenities for the boating family. Dock store, dockside fuel, on-site charter and rental service, and full restaurant and bar.

About Cindy Gordon

Charles and Cindy Gordon

Cindy Gordon purchased this condo in 2003

Why Cindy Gordon chose Gulf Shores

Navy Cove is a great location for the boater. On the bay and only a short distance to the ocean. The best of both worlds.

What makes this condo unique

We just updated all the beds, the main TV, the TV in the Master bed room and in the twin bed room. Also a new central ac unit, new carpet, and new paint. We changed the lighting in the kitchen area to recessed type lighting.

Needs a little repair, but a nice location

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice couple of months in the condo. The views are fabulous which makes up for some of the things that need repair. When we needed to contact Jody, property manager, for repairs to the bathroom toilet and furnace, she responded right away. The microwave is cracked & needs to be replaced. The dinner plates are too tall for the dishwasher thereby the bottom water spinner doesn’t spin. The right hand side of the refrigerator freezes items near it. Other than these few items, everything was good, we enjoyed our stay & will be returning next Winter.

We had a wonderful time and will recommend it to our friends and family.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great from the moment we got their until we sadly had to leave. The decor was up to date, beachy and colorful. The unit was clean. Even though the unit is on the first floor the fact that it’s an end unit gave you a great view of the bay. I would rent an end unit at Navy Cove every time if I can and I would rent this unit again. We love that we could bring our Corgi-mix pups with us. There are so few places that are dog-friendly so it makes this unit and condo complex so special. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our Christmas and New Years holiday. Thank you.

Comfortable & pet friendly

We had everything needed to be as comfortable as we are at home. Beds were comfy, view of the bay was nice, and the beach was a quick walk. Would love to stay again.

Pet and people perfect!

  • 4 of 5

The property was always presentable. The views from the balconies were beautiful and peaceful. I have never stayed on the bay and loved it. The condo was spacious and clean. To be able to have my dog, Angel with me made it twice as nice. Loved the jacuzzi in the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable! Thank you Jodi for being great at your job, 'property manager' !!

Our favorite place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I am a beach lover and have stayed in many places in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. A couple of years ago my son, who loves to fish, wanted to stay in Ft Morgan. I was a little hesitant to stay on the bay, but I agreed and found a room at Navy Cove having no idea what to expect. Well, needless to say, now we don't ever want to go anywhere else. We absolutely love it!

It really is the best of both worlds. The view from the room is so beautiful, and the kids fish in the bay and have a great time, even when we are not at the beach. They hop in the back of the truck and we drive across the street to the beach and spend the day. It is so great and never crowded. It is a short walk, and we have done that too, but we prefer to just drive over.

We don't have a boat, but if you do, then this place is perfect for you. But, don't hesitate to go without one. We always catch fish off the docks. I honestly don't think I will ever stay anywhere else on the Gulf. It is like home away from home.

As far as management and the won't find any better. Jody is so easy to work with and will get back with you very quickly in text, which I love! If you are on the line about staying on the bay and crossing the street, so was I, but it is such an amazing little place! You won't regret it!
