We just left Orange Beach yesterday.. :( Already missing it. The location of this rental is excellent. Being on the first floor is also a BIG plus. The views are BEAUTIFUL and we saw ALOT of dolphins from the balcony almost every morning. We didn't have to deal with the elevators when unloading/loading vehicle or for the quick trip to the room from the beach. Most of the time we were able to park in a covered area that has three spaces in it just the left of our door and around the corner -- that made it really convenient when we were leaving for the week because it was raining that morning. The privacy of this unit is very nice as well - no units on either side of it. Only minimal/occasional noise from units above could be heard. We couldn't get the sliding glass door from the master to the balcony to work, but the one from the living area worked just fine. The condo itself is decorated really nice but does need some TLC. There is some non-usable stuff in some of the storage areas that could be cleaned out and the carpet in the master bed/bath could be replaced. Some touch ups like caulking/baseboards could be done as well. Don't get me wrong - we would definitely stay here again, and I am sure it was exquisite when it was first remodeled after Hurricane Ivan. Overall we were really pleased and hope to be able to come back really soon!! The owner is nice to work with - and when you go be sure to meet the second shift security guard named Warren. He is a retired Navy man and is a super guy!!
