This is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the sun, beach, sea breeze, birds, seafood, fishing, boating, recreation and whatever else you have the time and energy for! The condo is very nice, and it truly felt like home away from home. Very clean! Great bed! Very nice appliances and furniture! Two flat screen TVs with lots of channels to choose from. The front balcony overlooking Little Lagoon is very spacious. The back balcony is smaller, but a great place to watch the beautiful sunsets. This property has good elevators, which is something I really appreciate!
My morning ritual was sitting on the front balcony overlooking Little Lagoon and listening to soft coos from mourning doves while I enjoyed a nice mug of coffee. As the morning progressed, mockingbirds began to sing their hearts out, as an occasional gull would make their presence known. Typically, there is a heron which roosts near the tennis courts, and looks for food around the two piers.
The beautiful white-sand beach is very easy to access, and the walkways are spacious and in great shape. The swimming pool, tennis courts, horse shoe area, and shuffle board area provide plenty of on-site recreational opportunities, and the charcoal barbecue grills with picnic tables on both B and C sides are very convenient. If you have a boat, there is a launch area and also a boat parking area, plus several dockside slips.
Anyone who frequents the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area knows that there a many great places to eat. Just a little over a mile east from this condo, there is a great take-out cook-to-order seafood market. They steam, grill or fry their ample selection and they have a half dozen tasty sides. I especially liked their slightly spicy steamed red potatoes. Having a fully functional kitchen and counter-top appliances, you cook your own meals and blend frozen drinks to suit your tastes.
In summary, I highly recommend this rental property! The owners are truly the best I’ve encountered in my decades of experience. We look forward to renting their condo again very soon!
