About the property

Beautiful condo overlooking the best beach on the Gulf of Mexico!


If you do not see a length of stay that suits you, send a message. We can make exceptions occasionally.

One bedroom w/bunks in the hall for the kids.

Just remodeled and new on the rental market! Get great rates now.

Great balcony with direct view of the Gulf of Mexico. Its a very short walk to the beach. Seacrest is one of the closest building to the gulf in Gulf Shores. No long wait for elevators like in the "monster" size 20 story buildings.

Beautiful pool and hot tub directly below balcony. Gazebo by the pool to get out of the sun. Table, 4 chairs and lounger on the balcony.

Our kitchen was just remodeled with new custom cabinets, all new stainless steel appliances, new quartz countertops. Well supplied kitchen. Icemaker in the freezer.

New washer dryer. Iron and full size ironing board.

New 50" HD SMART TV in the living room. New DVD player and stereo. We have plenty of DVD's for the kids. The living room and bed room TV gives you instant access to Netflix, Amazon and lots more that I don't understand. We have Mediacom (HD) enhanced cable with the extra channels.

HD smart TV in the bedroom.

We have a local land line.

Free Super High Speed WiFi

Great furniture including new queen size Tempurpedic mattress in the bedroom. Well decorated unit. Sleeper sofa in the living room.

Recently remodeled bath with brand new bath/shower. Hair dryer furnished.

Ceramic tile in the foyer, bath, and kitchen and carpet in the living room and bedroom..

Grills on property for those that want to cook out. Sorry but no grills allowed on the deck.

The two elevators are only steps from the front door.

Great restaurants within walking distance.

Sorry, we cannot rent to those under 25 without parents.

No smoking in the unit please.

Sorry, no pets unless service animals (homeowners association rule).

We furnish two adult beach chairs and a huge beach umbrella w/sand auger! The beach service charges from $20.00 to $30.00 per day so you save this much.

If you like fishing, there is great fishing from the beach. It is just a short trip to the lagoon also.

About Leo and Kitty Engle

We are locals from Orange Beach

Leo and Kitty Engle purchased this condo in 2016

Why Leo and Kitty Engle chose World

We purchased this condo in August of 2016. We honestly believe that being on West Beach is the best place to stay on the Gulf Coast. Family friendly.

Average temperature in January and February in the 60s.

What makes this condo unique

The building is just a few steps from the beach. No long walks down to the fun. Beautiful views of the beach at dawn and especially at sunset.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have never been to the Gulf Shores area prior to this trip and would go back again. It was a pleasure dealing with Leo right from the time we booked til the day we left. He called to ensure everything was in order and also suggested a few touristy things to see and do. We appreciated it. The condo is great, clean, tastefully decorated and has everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed walking up and down the beach and sitting on the balcony watching the dolphins and listening to the waves roll in. We found there is a lot to do in the area as in golf, sightseeing, shopping etc. We drove over to Pensacola to the Naval Museum and were fortunate enough to catch the Blue Angels during a practice run. Amazing! There are plenty of restaurants and pubs in the area to choose from and lot's of stores to shop at. Thanks again Leo.

Owner's Response: Kitty and I are are glad that you guys enjoyed your trip. I know that it had to be warmer than back home in Canada. Yes.... the Blue Angels are amazing. They give a free practice show in Pensacola once or twice a week during the spring, summer and fall. They put on a great show. Gulf Shores is a great vacation spot! You need to make it a yearly thing! Thanks again...Kitty and Leo

Excellent accommodations and very relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

The view was perfect and exactly what we needed before school starts. The room was very clean and plenty of space. The unit owner was more than helpful and left plenty of instructions for our stay. We will definitely make reservations at Seacrest 505 again!!

Amazing views and great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation!!! Very relaxing! The condo was extremely clean and very well kept. It was also fully stocked with anything we could've possibly needed. The owners were wonderful to work with and even checked on us during our stay to make sure there wasn't anything we needed. It was the perfect fit for our family of six. We loved the condo and the amazing view!!! We will be going back for sure!!

Condo is very comfortable and has a beachy decor which exceeds any other unit we've visited.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Seacrest and while the other condos were quite nice, this one exceeded our expectations. The attention to details is very apparent. Décor is special and everything one would need for a comfortable stay is provided. Kitchen has been updated with new appliances, cabinets and there is very nice carpet in the living area and bedroom. Owner is an attentive host but not intrusive. Information regarding local restaurants, attractions is available and comprehensive. We will definitely try to book this unit on our return trips to Gulf Shores.
