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 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 2014) 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 smart tv (so you can watch a movie on your Netflix account), 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, 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 new furniture/mattresses with two queen beds. 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 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 7 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.

About Cindy Porter

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

Why Cindy Porter chose Orange Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

DSU Girls Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Four college roommates started a September reunion to Orange Beach in 2004. We have never stayed at the same condo twice until we found this unit. We just returned from our third consecutive September reunion at Summer House. To say it meets all our needs would be an understatement. It is very tastefully decorated, the kitchen lacks nothing, and the location couldn't be better. Cindy is the consummate hostess even though she's not actually there!! She always checks on us to make sure everything is all right. We love it and HIGHLY recommend it! Thanks again, Cindy!

Absolutely wonderful...

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this Summer House condo in Orange Beach was fabulous. The condo is wonderfully decorated, spacious and has all the amenities that one could want or need. The balcony is so spacious and comfy, it was like having an extra room! It truly has all of the "touches" that you would expect to find in someone's home vs. an ordinary rental. The owners obviously take pride in going above and beyond! Thank you for adding to our wonderful week!

family trip

Cindy was wonderful to work with! The condo was beautifully decorated and felt like home away from home. It was perfect for our extended family. We had six adults and two small children with plenty of room. The balcony was wonderful and the location of the condo was awesome, right on the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Gwen, for your kind words and for being such great guests. I hope you'll return for another visit. Thank you also for letting me know about the washing machine not working correctly. The appliance repair man came out and the water level switch was bad and was replaced this morning. I wouldn't have known it was broken if you hadn't let me know. Take care!

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!!!
