'THE GRAND SLAM' name was derived from the coveted fisherman's catch of a Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and White Marlin, all caught on the same day. And for a super Grand Slam, you can add a Swordfish to the mix!!
But whether your 'Grand Slam' is a great fishing day or just decompressing on this beautiful island from your day-to-day routine, you will be in the Right Place.
You can fish for flounder, speckled trout, and red fish on the pier or in the cove, or head to the Gulf for an off-shore adventure. You can then cook your catch in the fully equipped kitchen or take it across the street to Fish Camp Restaurant, where they will cook it to perfection, according to your taste, and serve with great sides, at a reasonable price. FAMILY TESTED AND APPROVED.
IMAGINE your own perfect days, with choices including dining at restaurants favored by the locals, a dolphin sightseeing cruise, a concert at The Wharf, or shopping at the Tanger Outlet. You fitness buffs can work out just across the street at the Orange Beach Recreation Center, with its full gym and tennis complex.
OR IMAGINE yourself kicking back with a good book by the pool or spending a lazy day on the beach.
There are SO MANY PLACES to entertain the children in your family, including go-carts, miniature golf, bungie jumping, the local zoo, or a ride on the super-large ferris wheel at The Wharf. You can also help them build sand castles on the beach, or enjoy play time at a nearby playground.
Our family will do everything possible to make this spacious town home 'YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME.' We have either lived on or visited this island for more than 40 years and will share with you the special and wonderful places for great dining and sightseeing, including many special day trips.

Owners first visited this area in the 1960's, when there was little more than a grocery store, a restaurant, and a service station. Our children always loved to visit their grandparents who had moved to Gulf Shores. Now we live on the island on a part-time basis and two of our children have realized their dream of living in the area permanently.
We have watched the area grow over the years and are very familiar with the restaurants the locals frequent and other amenities the island has to offer. We can recommend the best captains around for a great day of all types of fishing.
We have visited beaches all over the United States, including Hawaii, and have found none more beautiful than the best-kept secret on the Gulf -- the beautiful Alabama beaches!
"We had such a wonderful time. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful slice of heaven!"
This condo is very nice & well furnished. Also it was very clean .We looked at a lot of condo's & this one was perfect , the veiw from the porch is fantastic!!! My wife likes to lay out by the pool & I like to take the boat & go fish !!!! This is a great place to enjoy a vacation , We just love it !! & yes we are coming back next year also !!! Jerry & Ileen are supper people & will do what ever it takes to ensure that you have a great stay !!
I think another reviewer hit the mark when they said this place was dilapidated. It is obviously a rental. There were spots on the carpet, the walls are in desperate need of a paint job, and the furniture is basic and out-dated. That said, everything functioned fine and it had all the necessities- the charcoal grill was a plus. It was nice to have washer/dryer in unit as we used this a lot. AC worked well. The master bathroom only had a tub but no shower, so we all had to share one shower upstairs- kinda embarrassing when our guests came. The boat slip is directly below the unit which was super convenient. The pool was great and the parking was more than adequate- accommodated a boat trailer too! Overall, this location was good, and the rental was average and appropriate for the price. Probably won't stay again because we do prefer a more upscale furnishing.
We had the best vacation ever! We just got a new boat and this was the perfect place to have our first fishing vacation. Jerry and Ilene were so nice and the townhouse was just right. They have thought of everything you need. The location is perfect to enjoy all that Orange Beach has to offer. It was so nice to have our boat right there. The layout of the townhouse was great for our two families. We enjoyed cooking our day's catch in the kitchen.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Walker Key. We were looking for a quiet place to enjoy the beach, Terry Cove area and be near some of our favorite restaurants. Even though we did not plan on doing any cooking, the owners have a well stocked kitchen and a very comfortable condo. We almost had the complex to ourselves and enjoyed sitting underneath the gazebo and poolside watching the boats and enjoying the water. They were very helpful and easy to work with and we appreciate being able to take our small dog with us. We look forward to another visit!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at The Grand Slam!! The unit was perfect for our family of 6 plus our furry friend. My first thought when I walked in the door was finally!!! A vacation I will not have to clean on. The unit was very clean, spacious, and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. If you are looking for a place to stay away from the hustle and bustle and yet have the option of fishing and walking directly out to your boat , this is the place!!! I can not say enough about Ilene and Jerry, they are by far the nicest people I have ever rented from. This is our new place to stay
Our stay was very enjoyable and the owners were very helpful throughout the entire process. We stay at the beach very often, living as close as we do, and this location is one of my new favorites. There was never a crowd around the pools, easy access to restaurants, convenience store right across the street, and it was so nice to have the wet slip for the boat. We were able to hop in the boat and be at Robinson island in seconds. My one complaint is that the unit was slightly more dilapidated than I expected from the pictures. It was not horrible by any means, but the unit could use new carpet (or a thorough cleaning), touch-up paint, and some updating of furniture. The cleaning prior to our arrival was also not as up to par as I would have expected.
End result is I would highly recommend Walker Key and give this unit a "good" review....where some minor updating and better cleaning would increase to excellent.
Convenient to Tanger Outlet for shopping, 3 miles from The Wharf entertainment and shopping complex, recreation center across street, fish for flounder speckled trout and red fish on the pier or in the cove, take a direct 5-minute run to the Gulf for off shore fishing, only a short drive to miles of beautiful Gulf beaches
