The Lighthouse complex offers the best amenities in Gulf Shores. Our unit includes all developer upgrades featuring tile floors throughout, granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, and an upgraded stainless steel kitchen appliance package.

This unit is freshly repainted, refurnished and well maintained for the rental market because the owners (and their friends/family) use it 5-6 months of the year themselves. This it is more of a second home than a traditional rental property. Our condominium is located on the 6th floor and has incredible, unobstructed eastern, southern and western views of the beach from the oversized, wraparound balcony.

The Master Suite is truly luxurious and has a wall of floor to ceiling windows providing an incredible view of the beach. It has a king-size pillow top bed, 32' HDTV, and a sliding glass door that opens to the balcony. The private master bathroom features a his and her vanity, large walk-in closet, large jetted whirlpool garden tub, and separate shower.

The remaining two bedrooms feature queen-size, pillow top beds with private full bathrooms. Each of these bedrooms is equipped with a 24' HDTV. Remember, one of these bedrooms is gulf front.

The Living Area also has unparalleled views overlooking the beach with access to the balcony. A 40' HDTV and Blu-Ray player are provided in the living room along with a Queen size, sleeper sofa. The adjacent dining room has a large table with seating for six, or you can enjoy dining on the balcony at a bar height table that seats four.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, stove, side by side refrigerator/freezer with in door ice/water dispenser, toaster, blender, coffee maker, mixer, and a bar with seating for four. Plenty of cabinets offer ample storage space for food and supplies. All utensils and dishware are furnished. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer with iron, ironing board and vacuum. Free local telephone service is included along with a high speed Internet connection with free unlimited use.

The Lighthouse is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Gulf Shores, Alabama and is near entertainment, restaurants, and shopping including grocery stores. Every amenity that you can imagine is here for you including: 2 outdoor pools (one lap pool and one zero entry pool that's great for the kids), an indoor heated pool, 2 hot tubs, exercise room, sauna and 635 feet of beachfront.

The Lighthouse condominium building is located on Highway 182 (455 East Beach Blvd.), approximately 0.7 mile east of Highway 59. Approximate drive times are as follows: Pensacola, FL (0:45 hr), Mobile, AL (1:15 hrs), New Orleans, LA (4:00 hrs), Jackson, MS (6:00 hrs), Birmingham, AL (5:00 hrs), Atlanta, GA (6:30 hrs).

About Marty

From Richmond, Indiana. We intend to spend more time at the condo in the future when we retire. For now, its only a few weeks per year and the rest of the time is available for family, friends, and soon-to-be new friends!

Why Marty chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We fell in love with this place from our first visit, and were pleased to buy it from the original owners in this complex which was build in 2006. The view is breathtaking. The complex is fantastic. We very much enjoy spending time in the Gulf Shores area.

What makes this condo unique

Two bedrooms have full ocean view and balcony access. Full wrap-around balcony. Awesome, unobstructed Southern view from East to West anywhere in the unit with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Quiet end unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't tell you how much we enjoyed your condo. It was beautiful. Prettiest one I have ever stayed in- very soft and beautiful. Everything was perfect! Will be contacting you again. Loved your menus and everything about places to eat. Wonderful idea!

My family visited Gulf Shores in June and the condo made the experience absolutely wonderful. Not to mention the beach. Yes, the sand really is white and beautiful. The kitchen was the best stocked in any condo or house I've rented. Everything I needed was there. I think I read 3 of the books there and left a couple of mine for others to read. We are already talking about returning next year for our summer vacation. Have a great vacation. If you booked this condo you can't go wrong.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying for a week. We found the accommodations outstanding. It is so well appointed, clean, spacious, and comfortable. The balcony is amazing! The jacuzzi tub in the matter bathroom is perfect. The full kitchen is spacious and ready to use. The owners are very accessible and dependable. I have already recommended to extended family who have booked a stay, and we will most definitely be back! Best place we've ever stayed bar none. Thanks for the great memories!♡

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo and helped make a great vacation. Would highly recommend. The owners are easy to communicate with, and fast at getting back to you for anything and everything. There were a total of 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children. We had plenty of room and had everything we needed. The weather was great all week. The beach was a little crowded, but everybody loves the beach!! The views from the balcony are outstanding!!!! We ate at the Hangout, The Oyster House, Sea and Suds and Tacky Jacks, and all were amazing. The only down fall we had was that our canopies and chairs that we brought with us from home was stolen from the holding location near the ice machines. We have always left our stuff on the beach in the past, but there is a new city rule (law) that says everything must be removed from the beach each day. So instead of packing all the stuff up the elevators we thought we would store it in the community storage area. Not a good idea at all. We understand the new rule, but just a pain, and also how rude of people to steal others things. We talked to the property manager and she was understanding and very easy to talk too. And we understood there was nothing she could do. Just a lesson learned for us. Overall this is a highly recommended condo, and area, and we will definitely do this again for sure!!!! Thanks Marty for a great place to stay that made our vacation great!!!!

We spent 2 great weeks in this beautifully furnished condo with a fabulous wraparound view on the 6th floor.

Could not have been more comfortable.

My sister and I brought our daughters (and their three babies) to Gulf Shores to celebrate sisterhood. We wanted to relax, with places to go and things to do, yet still maintain a quiet laid back atmosphere! Lighthouse 601 was perfect. It was beautiful, clean, and very well maintained. The day of our arrival, just as our airplane landed, Marty called to let me know that the ac was not working, but he would have it fixed ASAP. By the time we arrived to Lighthouse 601, the condo was cool and perfectly comfortable. Maintenance staff checked in to make sure that all was well, as did Marty. Location was perfect. We were within easy walking distance of The Hangout, yet we did not have heavy noise or beach traffic. We loved having Sea and Suds so close!!!! The pools made it easy to allow the babies to play in the water. The view from the huge balcony was amazing! We had coffee, lunch, and wine out there often. Everything about our stay was awesome. Thank you, Marty, for giving us exactly what we were expecting (and so much more) from your website.

Owner's Response: The A/C unit has continued to act up since your visit. Tomorrow a contractor will arrive to begin the installation of a totally new A/C system in the condo. I am sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our renters the past few weeks, and am upgrading the system to make sure no more issues occur. I want to ensure everyone can have an enjoyable - and comfortable - vacation at our condo unit. I am certainly glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back in the future.
