Guestbook comments from the owner
Let me start by saying that me, my daughter, and my mother stayed at your condo July 23rd through July 26th and it was wonderful. It was my daughters first trip to the beach and she was impressed. She is 5 and thought the bonus (bunk) room was the neatest thing. Before we left to come home we were already making plans to come back next year. The condo was nice and the furnishings were great. I left feeling like I got what I paid for, and some. I looked at lots of condos on line before choosing yours, and the decor is what sold me. I noticed you had a place in Orange Beach also. I've never understood why people took a week when they went on vacation but I do now. Three days is not enough time to do everything we wanted to do. Thanks to you and your wife for having such a wonderful place for us to come to and making our first vacation something we can look back on and look forward to each year.



Owners note: Guest is true to herself...She has booked a week in July 2009.

My name is Howard Wadsworth, you will probably be dealing with me on the rental. My wife Annettee and I have have been married for 24 years and have two beautiful girls, ages 13, and 9. We are from Auburn, Alabama, in east central Alabama just four hours north of our famous white sand beaches. For the past 27 years I have owned a jewelry business specializing in loose diamonds and fine diamond jewelry and Annettee has been selling local cable TV advertising for the last 20 years. We both love to travel with our children to the beach or to our lake cabin nearby.

Howard Wadsworth purchased this condo in 2007

We bought our unit at Lighthouse because we knew it was going to be the premier location to spend precious vacation time. It is built on the site of the old Lighthouse Motel. So many guests want to return to their special beach with their children and grandchildren. I have been impressed with the loyalty and sentimental feelings so many of our guests have have with this particular strech of sand. It is truly a special place to so many. My wife and I both frequented the area before we met and always referred to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area as 'the beach' .

We have many happy memories there and we feel at home there. We know the good restaurants where the locals eat and the special places to visit. I'll be glad to share these with you. The area has a unique feel and truly is a place where everyone feels at ease. It's quaint but not stuffy, fun but not too rowdy. If you are looking for a family atmosphere or want to kick up your heels a little, this is the place! The new Motto for the City of Gulf Shores says it very well: 'Small Town, Big Beach'

Very few vacationers have the opportunity to enjoy a penthouse view on such a spacious balcony. Since no one can see in, except the sea gulls that fly by, you can enjoy your privacy with the drapes wide open all day! At this height you can still hear the waves and feel the wind but not hear the pool noise. My favorite thing to do at least once every trip is to visit the local seafood grocery. We have them prepare steamed cajun shrimp and gumbo with all the trimmings. We enjoy this special meal on the balcony overlooking the gulf from eighteen floors up and toast the sunset!

Great place for a winter break!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit for the month of February and had a great time. The condo is spacious and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need. The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. We loved the large balcony and the views from the 18th floor are amazing. The owners are very easy to work with. We had to have work done on the lock for the door and the owner had it taken care of immediately. The amenities at The Lighthouse are very nice. This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and we would definitely stay in this unit again if we returned. Good restaurants, beautiful beach, great condo to stay in.....priceless!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic time last week. The condo was perfect and really well stocked!!!!!! Loved the decor too!!!! Great facilities which were well maintained at all times even with so many people around. The pools were always sparkling clean the hot tubs never got too out of hand with all the Spring breakers and staff were polite at all times. Although the sea was a little cold to swim in the beaches were beautiful and clean. The view from the 18th floor was spectacular and a visit from the dolphins and stingrays daily was such a treat!!!! Sun-downers on the balcony each evening were phenomenal. We will definitely be back.

Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Owners are gracious, condo was gorgeous with dolphins to boot!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, and I cannot imagine finding a more well-maintained and better decorated condo than this one! We had just about everything we needed (a few more paper products and dishwashing supplies would have been nice), and the building and other guests were great. There were plenty of extra toys and beach equipment left by other visitors in bins at the pool, so check there before buying anything as you may be able to borrow and share while younare there! We hope to make our way back to Gulf Shores sometime, and if we do we will be looking to stay in this unit again! Owners were great to work with and responsive.

One Word: Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from spending a week here in Gulf Shores. It was our son's first trip to the beach and I will never forget the look on his face when he saw the ocean and beach for the first time, from the balcony of this condo. PRICELESS... We made so many wonderful family memories while staying here that we will for sure be back again next year. We chose this condo over many others based on the pictures, and trust me when I tell you that it was EVEN BETTER in person! Clean, comfy, modern decor, convenient location, excellent customer service from Howard with the rental, etc. A must stay for sure!

Had a great 4 nights at this condo, Since we live only about 3 hours away in Mississippi, I'm sure I'll be reserving this condo again. The 18th floor was wonderful. All the beauty of the beach without the noise. So nice not having a separate check-in location!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful anniversary trip to Gulf Shores. I am "very"
picky about where we stay on trips...so I search for weeks for the "perfect" place. This condo was
absolutely wonderful! Beautiful view of the ocean from both living room and Mstr bedroom...comfortable bed...everything you needed was there! Everything they said about condo was true plus even better!
They have done a wonderful job decorating this condo....we loved it and will return :) Thanks for providing such a great place for all to enjoy!
