Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 2 BR/2 BA oceanfront

Due to last minute cancellation, using 'Book It Now' feature, secure your 5 night vacation for the price of four!

Leave your worries behind when you relax in our 2 BR/2BA spacious, beachfront retreat in the Castaways condominium complex. From our fifth floor balcony, you can watch the sun rise and set, enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds of waves lapping the shore, and watch families chasing crabs at night with the lights of shrimp boats twinkling on the horizon. Our condo is just a few steps to everywhere that you might want to be: relaxation with a good book while the kids entertain themselves in the white sand and clear blue water, miles of shell-lined shoreline, fresh seafood prepared just the way you want it, fluffy pancakes and endless hot coffee, entertainment at The Hangout, bicycle and moped rentals across the street alongside cold, fresh ice cream at Brusters. A short walk leads you to Alabama State parks with miles of trails for jogging, biking and observing nature at its finest as well as convenience stores and favorite local establishments. Further entertainment opportunities are easily accessible with multiple golf courses, deep sea fishing, and water sports rentals nearby.

Our 1200 square foot condominium feels much larger with its breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico maximized by our double, sliding glass doors which open onto a large tiled balcony. The over-sized master suite has a king sized bed, spacious walk-in closet, and sitting area with private access to the balcony as well as a large picture window overlooking the beach. The master suite also has a flat screen TV and iHome stereo, a private bathroom with double sink vanity, plenty of storage and separate bath area. The guest bedroom is furnished with twin beds, two dressers to keep the clutter to a minimum and private access to a second bathroom, shared with the living area. Along with its awesome view, the living room offers a queen pullout sofa, large flat screen TV with DVD and cable, Xbox and stereo system/CD player. The bright, L-shaped kitchen has ample counter and cabinet space for all that you need as well as a Panini press, popcorn popper, toaster, blender, automatic coffee maker, new appliances and is fully stocked with pans and cooking gear. Luxurious linens await you at the end of your day, with high thread-count sheets, plush pillows, fluffy towels, and pillow top mattress covers.

Outside, you will find a large L-shaped, beachfront pool with a corner fountain and expansive decking perfect for sunbathing, reading a good book and watching the kids play in the water. The pool extends underneath the condo to provide relief from the sun with picnic tables and seating in the shade, and poolside bathrooms are convenient for swimmers and beach combers with sandy feet. Guests have access to two charcoal grills for grilling fresh seafood or hamburgers and hotdogs for your picnic by the pool. Our fifth floor balcony is directly above the pool and perfect for calling down when dinner is ready or monitoring older children in the pool or on the beach.

At the end of the day, or during pop-up thunderstorms, there is plenty of space to spread out on the spacious balcony or in the master suite, while the kids enjoy a movie in their room or battle on the Xbox. We have also provided our guests with board games, paperback books and puzzles for added relaxation.

There are several options for dining on the beach within steps from our condo, and a leisurely 20 minute stroll along the shore will take you to the Alabama State pier, where you can rent fishing gear, buy bait and catch Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Red Snapper, to name a few. When walking down the beach in either direction, you will appreciate the wide open, under populated beaches in front of our condominium. The low density complexes on either side of our 36-unit Castaways complex provide our guests with the ability to spread out and relax without having to claim their spot on the beach every morning. Guests may use our sun umbrellas and beach chairs or may choose to rent lounges daily on the beach. Also included for our guests’ enjoyment are boogie boards, beach blankets, pool toys, sand toys, kites and bocce ball set. Once you stay with us, you will wonder why you ever looked elsewhere! Come put your toes in the sand….

Guestbook comments from the owner
Chloe, Your condo was perfect! This was our third annual trip for four moms who met just a few years ago at a Bible study. Lots of talking, praying, a few tears and major relaxation was had here. I hope we get to use it again next year. Loved it!

Our family likes to vacation in a relaxed setting while maintaining the utmost in comfort. We are just as busy as everyone else these days, but we put aside time to get away from the stresses of every day life as a family. We hope that your family enjoys our home away from home as much as we do!

Chloe Harden purchased this condo in 2012

We fell in love with Gulf Shores a few years ago and decided to buy this particular condominium because of the wide open beaches in front of the unit, the pool, workout room, and close proximity to many local attractions. The kids LOVE to visit The Hangout where you can get a foot-tall milkshake while watching the wait staff dance on the tables when certain songs are played. Also a short walk to the pier for excellent fishing, year-round and several beachfront restaurants are steps away when you want to dine out!

The double, sliding glass doors in our condo open up wide and seem to bring the ocean indoors. The floor plan allows us all to spread out at the end of the day and awaken on different schedules early in the morning to watch the seagulls while drinking our coffee. The spacious kitchen allows the cook plenty of space and upgraded amenities so that cooking on vacation doesn't seem like a chore!

NICE PLACE FOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening your home to us. This condo is great if you are looking for a beach vacation. We enjoyed waking up every morning to the sound of waves and watching dolphins from the balcony. The condo needs a few updates but is very clean! Chloe is very helpful and is prompt in answering any questions you have. We will be staying here again and recommending it to others.

My wife and I will definitely be back. This place is a must see. Oceanfront and everything provided. Just pack some clothes and run to the local store and your all set. This is our favorite place out of all the other vacation spots we have visited out of about 10. Very nice. Thanks again Chloe. We look forward to booking our next vacation with you!!
