Orange Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Our beautiful beachfront, 3 bedroom/2 bath 8th floor condo in the 'B' building at the desirable Summer House complex is where you want to be. The B building is the one closest to the beach and, unlike Building A, has unrestricted beach views (Building A's view to the west is blocked by Building B). We purchased this dream in June 2012 and invite you to be our guests in our long-awaited beach home. We have been coming to Orange Beach several times a year since 2005 and have learned what we like and dislike about rental condos. We don’t like white/beige walls, wicker and bamboo furniture, and cheap beach décor that owners often put in their units because it’s strictly an investment for them. This truly is our second home, and we welcome you to enjoy it as we do to create memories, recharge your batteries, and escape your worries. In our condo you will find a warm, soothing, beachy wall color, comfortable furniture, and classy décor that lets you know you’re on vacation at the beach without screaming it at you. We’ve repainted and updated the entire unit.

We chose Summer House because it is in a perfect location just 5 miles east of highway 59 and within walking distance to shops and restaurants, is gated, has indoor/outdoor pools, a sauna, hot tub, tennis, handball, and basketball courts, playground, exercise room, free wi-fi, and grilling area.

One of the best features of this complex is the private, massive balcony that overlooks the Gulf and beautiful white sand. This unit has unrestricted beach views in both east and west directions. There is so much space that it will accommodate everyone with plenty of room to spare, and yet it’s cozy so that you and your loved one can enjoy the romantic sunsets. And you'll want to spend a lot of time out on the balcony because we've furnished it with soft, cushioned furniture. No cheap plastic or uncomfortable furniture here! There is access to the balcony from both the living room and master bedroom.

The living room features all brand new furniture (as of April 25th) including a queen-sized sleeper sofa (which has an awesome memory foam mattress - you can't even tell you're sleeping on a sofa), a flat screen tv, a dvd/vcr player, and blackout curtains so anyone sleeping on the sofa can sleep as late as they want without the sun waking them up early in the morning.

The kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets, countertops, appliances, custom stone backsplash, and is fully-stocked with everything you will need to cook any kind of meal. There is even a built-in ice maker so that you never run out of ice. And we have plenty of plasticware so that you can safely take your beverages/meals out on the balcony, down to the pool, or onto the beach without fear of breaking glass.

The master suite features a tiled floor, a king-sized mattress, upscale furniture and bedding, a flat screen tv, dvd/vcr player, and room-darkening curtains so that you can sleep in if you want to. The en-suite bathroom has all been updated beautifully. It now has a tiled, walk-in shower with glass doors, new vanity with granite countertop, custom-made mirrors, and new lighting. And, we have big, thick, soft, fluffy towels.

One of the guest bedrooms features a queen-sized bed and the other guest room has all new furniture/ mattresses with two queen beds and Steve Madden comforters. Both rooms have high thread count, super soft sheets, tiled floors, ceiling fans, plantation shutters, flat screen tvs/dvd players, and share the guest bathroom (which was also totally gutted and also has the wonderful towels).

The unit also has a full-sized washer and dryer, clothes iron/ironing board, board games, books, kid dvds, and even a high chair, pack-n-play, and a bouncy seat for your little one so you don’t need to bring it from home.

Please keep in mind that Summer House is one of the nicest complexes on the beach and has every amenity, is gated, extremely well maintained, and is beachfront. You will be able to find less expensive complexes, but they won't be the same.

POLICIES: Absolutely no renters under age 25. This is strictly enforced. A copy of the renter's drivers license will be required and must be returned along with the rental contract which will be emailed to you upon the reservation being made. Absolutely no smoking in the unit. If there is a smell of smoke or any other evidence in the unit upon check out, you will be charged an extra cleaning fee. No pets of any kind are allowed. This is the Summer House policy, not ours. Our unit is spotlessly clean and well maintained and these are ways that we keep it that way. If any of these policies are abused, the renter will be evicted and no rental fees will be returned.

$250 security deposit required when reservation is made. This is refunded within 10 days of checkout date, provided there is no damage or theft of property. All rental fees are due 30 days prior to check-in date. If reservation is made within 30 days of check-in date, all fees are due at time of reservation. Check and credit cards are accepted.

My calendar is kept up-to-date, so please check it before contacting me regarding availability.

We live in the Nashville area, have been spending time in Orange Beach since 2005, and have dreamed of owning a beach condo there ever since. We are so excited our dream has came true and we look forward to sharing it with you. We are the parents of two boys, ages 12 and 9 and they're growing up loving OBA as much as we do. If you're visiting OBA for the first time, we know you'll love the area just as much as we do. If you're a returning visitor, we hope your upcoming visit will be your best one yet. Please let us know if we can help you in any way. We are very familiar with the area and have a lot of recommendations for good food, fun things to do, and even some great places to go on a short day trip.

Cindy Porter purchased this condo in 2012

We rented a unit in Summer House several years ago and loved the property. When it came time to purchase one, we narrowed it down to three complexes based on our 'required items' the complex had to have. After looking at the three complexes, the other two didn't compare to SH. They just couldn't compete with the location, the amenities, the environment, and the overall package that SH offers.

Beautiful, spacious, beachfront pool area, gated entrance, complex cleanliness, family-friendly environment, indoor pool for those yucky weather days, huge balcony for all of the time you spend outside enjoying the view, convenient location.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our families first visit to Orange Beach, and we could not have stayed in a better condo. Felt like home, with a beach in my back yard. Plenty of space for me and my wife, 2 teenagers, and my brother and his wife. The view from the balcony, amazing. Spent a lot of time there. Seen dolphins every morning. Perfect vacation!!!

LARGE BALCONY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit during spring break. Not crowded at all. Beautiful unit with a large balcony that has nice comfortable furniture. Inside, the unit was very comfortable with nice soft bedding in each room. The bedrooms are not large nor are the baths, but they are totally remodeled and spotless. We had no complaints and we all enjoyed our stay. I will note that the indoor pool and hot tub, which are very nice, are located by the road, when you first come into parking lot, in a separate building. They are not on the beach or inside the condo building itself. The outdoor pool is very nice. You can not see it from the balcony thought. The view of the beach was spectacular.We enjoyed our stay and Cindy was wonderful to work with and very prompt with answers to questions. We hope to return very soon.

THANKSGIVING GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time! The condo is beautifully furnished with all the amenities. I love having a washer and dryer in the unit - so convenient. The view from the patio is amazing and we just loved the sunsets! The furniture is stylish and comfortable and the decor is beautiful. I love the updated bathrooms. Fall is a great time to visit, not crowded but still lots to see and do. We loved the indoor pool. The pool was warm and the hot tub is huge! My kids loved it. Thanks for a great rental. We will definitely rent from you again.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful location and a perfect condo for a family vacation! Thank you for a worry free stay. The condo was clean and beautiful. The large balcony allowed the whole family to continue to enjoy the beach even when we were eating dinner and watching the sunset. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and slept like babies in the comfortable beds. Thank you for all of your attention to details, we will certainly be coming back again!
