Enjoy Serenity in Your Gulf Shores Vacation Condo

Sitting back and relaxing on your balcony of a beachfront condo while you take in views of the Alabama coastline can seem idyllic, and this can be your real-life experience when you reserve a Gulf Shores vacation condo today. Vacation condos give you all of the conveniences of home, such as a full kitchen and private bedrooms and bathrooms for your family or friends. Some of the condos in the Gulf Shores area have beach views, and others have beach access that make it easy for you to head down to the shoreline for fun in the sun.

Outdoor Recreation

The beach is a primary draw for many people who head to Gulf Shores on vacation, and there is good reason for this. Gulf Shores is known for its exceptional beaches with clean, soft sand and clear, blue water. From your vacation condo, you could enjoy sunbathing, building sandcastles, playing in the water and more all just steps from your accommodations. Gulf Shores is loaded with plenty of other outdoor activities to keep you busy as well. Parasailing along the coastline and deep sea fishing are two of the most popular excursions, and you can also rent jet skis, power boats, sailboats and more for additional fun outdoors in Gulf Shores.

Attractions

In addition to playing at the beach while you are on vacation, you can also take your loved ones to Adventure Island. This is an amusement park venue that has exciting rides, challenging games, food, drinks and more. For a different kind of fun, take your family or friends to the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail, a beautiful nature trail that enables you to get to know a different side of Gulf Shores. From your condo, you will also be close to a waterfront park in neighboring Orange Beach that has sports courts for group games, picnic tables and water frontage for you to enjoy.

Nightlife

Gulf Shores is a town that may be ideal for relaxing at the beach, but it is also a lively town with a great nightlife. There are numerous bars and restaurants located up and down the main highway in the area that make it easy for you to kick back after a fun-filled day in the sun. Some of the top options that you may want to explore while in the area include Cosmos Restaurant and Bar, the Undertow, Live Bait Nightclub, the Cigar Bar, Island Time Daiquiris and several others.

Weather

You cannot help but have a great time exploring all that Gulf Shores has to offer, and part of the reason for this is because of the spectacular climate. The humid subtropical climate makes this a perfect destination to visit almost year-round, but the warmer temperatures in the summer season mean that summer is preferred for spending time at the beach. The average daily high is in the low 60s in the summer, and it jumps to the high 80s and low 90s in the summer months. Gulf Shores receives approximately 67 inches of rain per year, and July is the wettest month.

How to Get There

Gulf Shores is easy to reach via car or boat. Many will take a private vessel to the area and dock it in one of the marinas located in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or another neighboring community. Some will fly into Mobile or Pensacola and rent a car. Others will travel in their own vehicle to reach Gulf Shores. Take Interstate 10 to the exit for Highway 98. This highway leads into Gulf Shores, making it easy to access.

The location is perfect for those looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy some quiet time on the back bay. Martha was extremely helpful with every step along the way and the house included everything you could think of to help you enjoy your stay. I would highly recommend this house for a couple, small family, or anyone looking to bring their pet to the beach. The fenced in yard was perfect for our little dog and gave us the peace of mind you don't normally get when staying in a condo. It was a short drive to a dog friendly beach in Morgantown subdivision (great beach for people without dogs as well). This is our first time staying in the Fort Morgan area and we were pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get into Gulf Shores for dining, shopping, or grabbing carry out from our favorite Pizza and Oyster place (Rocco's!!). Normally we like to dine out, but we got carry out instead every night because we couldn't wait get back to this little getaway. The owners are clearly pet lovers and have made bringing your little furry friends to the beach a no-brainer.

Our dogs enjoyed the fenced yard as well as the screened porch. It was great to sit and drink coffee on the porch and just take in the view every morning. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to stay at the Shsdy Shack again. Martha had everything we needed in a very organized notebook that helped us find our way around to restaurants and other sites. We especially enjoyed reading the history of the house! Thank you Martha!!
