About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath cozy and private

Why I’m a 5 star condo. Comments most used by our guests; clean, neat, comfortable,convenient,great pool, peaceful ,relaxing and close to everything.

I have been redecorated ( not that I needed it ). It has a touch of elegance but a fun beach theme.

Living room is comfortable & inviting with recliners and sofa sleeper.

Dining room is bright & cheery with plenty of room for 6 people. A view to the south of the patio and woods.

Kitchen is filled with appliances ( Keurig, mr coffee, waffle iron, toaster, blender crockpot ) plus all the pots & pans that one needs to fix meals there plus dinnerware and glasses.

Your first cup of coffee is on us, along with paper towels, has kitchen towels, salt, pepper etc.

Master bedroom is cozy & decorated in Black & White with a king size bed ( 1yr old ). Bathroom has double sinks, makeup area, with a large walk-in shower, plush towels plus toilet paper furnished.

Second bedroom has twin beds and it’s own bathroom. This bath has a tub with shower. Toilet paper supplied also.

All tv’s are brand new & living room tv is a smart tv. We also have WIFI.

This is also a handicapped unit.

This condo has a great pool area, to enjoy and the beach is a mile and a half down Hwy 59. One of the advantages I have is the proximity of it to everything. It's located off Hwy 59 just over the inter coastal waterway. It's within walking distance to several grocery stores, Walmart, Zaxby's, McDonalds, and fine dining restaurants. Within a mile radius is Gulf State Park, Beach and Pier, Waterville, bike trails, zoo, miniature golf baseball fields and many more things to do. If you're interested in shopping there is the Wharf, Tanger Outlet Mall & other shopping centers. If you want to take a little ride you can visit Fairhope and Daphne.

I have a sister condo which says A Bit of Paradise for Your Family to Enjoy #722761. You can check out the reviews on that condo. I think you will be genuinely happy with your choice.

Very peaceful and relaxing! We loved the condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo, and it was very peaceful and relaxing. It is located close to grocery stores, restaurants, library, and the Post Office with the beach just minutes away. The furniture is very nice and comfortable. The kitchen is great - it has newer appliances and is fully loaded with dishes, pots & pans, and utensils. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. We would highly recommend this unit!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in your condo. It was very comfortable and felt just like being in our own home. It was just far enough away from the hustle & bustle of being in the crowds of vacationers but yet just a short drive to the beaches. Our son being able to bring his small dog was also an asset to staying here. We hope that we can come again! Charlie & Dawn Douglas

We truly enjoyed this location. It is stocked with everything you need and so comfortable. We felt at home here. The pool is very nice and not crowded at all. If we are ever in the area again, we will plan to stay at this location. Owner is very quick to respond to any questions!

Clean, quiet, comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice our kids stated several times that they felt like they were at home. The beds are comfortable and there is a lot of room compared to other condos we have stayed in. We cooked most of our meals at the condo and I had everything I needed for cooking. The grilling area is also nice we used it one night. The pool is nice and clean. The area is very quiet and so are the neighbors. It is very close to everything and takes a few minutes to get to the beach access. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.
