About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy a fun-filled getaway to one of the most exciting resorts on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Our luxury condo is on the 12th floor of the Caribe Resort and features great unobstructed views of the Gulf. We pride ourselves on providing a rental property that feels like home--because this is our home away from home. It is luxuriously furnished--not a typical beach rental--which is why it will quickly become your home away from home!

The Alabama Gulf Coast is blessed with beautiful waters and pristine beaches and the Orange Beach area offers many things to see and do. We encourage you to visit and hope you will consider us for your lodging needs.

Our condo has three bedrooms and three full baths, assuring comfort and privacy for everyone. With a king, queen, two singles plus two queen sofa beds, there is easily enough sleeping room for 10. In addition to our roomy 1750 square feet of living area, our spacious balcony offers breath taking views to enjoy throughout the day and night. With Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, our full kitchen is great for those gourmet meals or quick snacks. You will enjoy the ocean view from the master bedroom, a large Jacuzzi in the Master Bath, separate double shower, and a large walk in closet which even makes a great nursery with portacrib, if needed!

Caribe has all the amenities you would expect from a first class resort. Add in local attractions, great restaurants and water activities, and you have the makings of a great vacation.

Testimonials from our guests:

March 2008 – “My son said this was the best Easter ever! Also we enjoyed our stay for Spring Break for our kids… they had a blast!

March 2008 – “The view is absolutely perfect. The ocean is calming. Just what the soul needs occasionally. The Caribe is the best resort EVER.

(Saraland, AL)

June 2007 – “People think we are crazy for driving all this way … but this beautiful coast is so fun and family friendly we plan to return as often as possible. The Caribe – especially unit B1211 is like living in the lap of luxury. We appreciate your hospitality very much. Our kids loved the pools and most of all the Lazy River. It was so wonderful we never wanted to leave the pools, but we managed to go the beach a couple of times! ” Patrick & Michelle F. (Broomfield, CO).

We have been blessed to have nice, responsible guests at our condo with many returning for additional stays with us. We do hope you give us a try!

About Steve Kauffman

We are retired in our mid 60's and live close by in Daphne, so we can personally take care of our guests. We enjoy offering our 'home away from home' to responsible parties and we have many repeat guests. We take pride in never having a guest disappointed in their stay with us! We hope you will give us a try.

Steve Kauffman purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve Kauffman chose Orange Beach

From the very beginning it was obvious that Caribe Resort would be a very specially place on the Gulf Coast and, as original owners, we wanted a spacious 'home away from home' to entertain family and friends. We particularly liked the ocean view from our high, 12th floor balcony.

Comfortable Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The balcony was our favorite place! We could walk or have short drive to the beach and got to see some amazing sunsets. You can see the sunrise from the balcony, if you choose to get up that early. The condo was well-equipped with all we could need and more. It was secure and quiet, and we felt right at home while there. Parking was easy at this time of year. The beaches were not crowded but the sand was SO nice, even after having a hurricane the week before. We loved having the room to spread out but then come together for meals or games. We would definitely stay here again!

Caribe B1211

  • 5 of 5

Such a "home away from home" condo. It has everything needed to enjoy a week long stay. The view was superb and Caribe's amenities was the icing on the cake. Will definitely return again!

Loved the condo and Caribe Resort

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed this comfortable condo and all the amenities available at Caribe. The owners were great to work with and very helpful. This was our first visit to Caribe and the best accommodations we have had in our several visits to Orange Beach. We highly recommend this for family vacations.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Caribe is great, but the condo is better! This place has it all. Despite the fact it's not on the beach, there is a trolley available at your beck and call to take you to and from very secluded beaches...Although the kids were content to go up and down the water slide at the building's pool every minute of every day, lol. The condo itself was the best stocked that we've seen since coming to OB for the last seven years...And one of the most comfortable! The kids especially loved all the pool toys and we added a few to the pile...We will definitely be back to this condo! Thank you again for your hospitality! 😀

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your first stay at our condo was the best you have experienced in Orange Beach. We appreciate your nice comments, especially noting the little extras like the pool toys. We hope to see you back next year!

Great property and unit

  • 5 of 5

First of all, let me say that the whole rental experience working directly with the owner, Steve, was great. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner. He even called us on the day of arrival. The unit is well kept and well stocked with items that aren't easy to remember to bring with you for a week-long stay. The property itself is well kept and clean with several very nice swimming pools. The view from the balcony is great. We also enjoyed the large master suite with its own balcony access, large bathroom and walk-in closet. Our kids loved the bunk beds in the room they stayed in. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with utensils and even a large variety of consumables. My security deposit was returned in a timely manner so I would definitely recommend renting from this owner.
