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 Shady Shack was a perfect fit for us! The owner provided very clear details before our arrival and had a booklet in the house with directions to restaurants and beaches. We were a five-minute drive to a dog-friendly beach that my daughters and I loved! Great area to get in the water, relax or just walk on the beach. Also very close to the public beach and the shops in Gulf Shores. The house was so comfortable and clean. Loved the screened porch and yard and the bay walk behind the house. The house was well stocked with everything we needed plus a few bonuses (the girls loved watching the DVDs that were there). The wi-fi worked great for me (had to get some work done). Everything was so clean and well organized. The location was ideal for driving to shops, restaurants, beaches and attractions. I enjoyed coming back to this quiet area for rest times. My daughter who is on the autism spectrum liked the coziness and the quiet of Shady Shack. I hope to be able to come back to the home often! I'm an author and would love to come back and write there. Would make a wonderful place for a writer's retreat.

Location is great - far enough out to be quiet but close enough to be near everything we needed. The unit is beautiful and so are the surroundings. View of gulf was great but being on the lagoon is perfect for those who like to fish. Thanks for the great getaway.
