Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 King Bedrooms + Bunk room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Lighthouse sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico less then 1/2 mile down East Beach Blvd. (Hwy. 182).

Please note: We have another 3 bedroom with 3 bath unit on the 3rd floor (just doors away) at The Lighthouse and the vrbo # for it is 289529. We also own a 4th floor 3 bedroom/3 bath unit at the San Carlos condominium complex. The VRBO # on that unit is 227150.

If you enjoy lounging by the pool, prepare yourself as there are three! The first is a extremely kid-friendly zero entry pool which starts at about 2 inches in depth and gradually extends to five feet deep. The children will be thrilled to splash, play and run under the water jets. The second pool is suitable for everyone else and both are huge.

Can't you just feel yourself relaxing under the palm trees in one of the many chaise lounges surrounding both pools? Are hot tubs your favorite way to unwind? There is one located at each end of the pool along with chairs for chatting with friends. The remaining pool is a very large heated indoor pool. This pool,the fitness room and cedar sauna are on the first floor with a perfect beach view from the walls of windows.

The four high speed elevators are enclosed in individual rooms which buffer any noise to the nearby condos. Your room is conveniently located just feet away from one which accesses all of the 1st floor amenities!

Your condo has been tastefully and comfortably decorated. The master bedroom has a king size pillow top mattress. It has a 19' flat panel TV w/DVD player and a ceiling fan. There is ample storage in the walk-in closet with plenty of shelving . The master bath has a separate double vanity dressing area before you walk into the main bath area with the whirlpool tub, glassed-in shower and commode. The master bedroom and living room both have heavy drapes with blackout lining.

The guest bedroom also has a king pillow-top mattress and ample closet storage . It also has a 19' flat panel TV with DVD and a ceiling fan. The guest bath is a shower/tub combination and can be accessed through the guest bedroom and the hallway both. The bunk room contains two twin beds and is cheerfully decorated.

The living room has a large flat panel TV with DVD player and a ceiling fan. The couch converts to a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is very well equipped with all of the major and small appliances you will need including a large coffee maker and heavy duty blender, it also has a huge separate pantry. All of the rooms have earthtone colored tile with the exception of the 2 main bedrooms which are carpeted.

The beautiful white sand and turquoise water is like no other. The view from your balcony is simply breath taking. It is accessible from both the living room and master bedroom and is a very spacious.You can watch the kids enjoy the pool, carry on a relaxing conversation and still hear the waves crash on the beach- the best of all worlds! The view is magnificent- enjoy the peaceful mornings watching for dolphins to jump or soak in the breezy evening sunsets.

We normally try to have only Saturday to Saturday rentals during the peak season, however, there are some partial weeks availible.

On a personal note- We have enjoyed the Gulf Shores area for several years now and it is our hands-down favorite. We picked the condo we own because we feel it represents the best of all worlds- a very child-friendly atmosphere but also well-appointed for our adult guests.

It is close to everything you want and need in the way of dining and shopping. The rooms have been outfitted to make it your home away from home and your comfort and fun is foremost in mind. Don't wait another minute and book your vacation with us today!

About The Owner

We live in western Kentucky and had spent most of our beach vacations with our family in Gulf Shores. We decided to purchase our first unit in 2008 and currently own three. We have developed a loyal customer base with several families now in their 3rd and 4th years ( with a even a few more longer than that) . This is exactly what we had intended when we decided to begin our rental business. We want to develop loyal customers because they know what we will provide to them and how we value their business.

I ask each client if they have been to the area and if they haven't ( or it's been a few years), I try to provide them with info of the area and activities. Even though the beaches are beautiful,there is just so much to see and do in the entire gulf coast area.

Our family has been involved in a construction related business for 30+ years and customer service is truly our number one priority. Clients are spending their hard earned money to relax and get away from it all for just a few days. We want to exceed their expectations on what a vacation rental home should be.

Why The Owner chose Alabama Gulf Coast

The Lighthouse is one of the most desired complexes in Gulf Shores. It is a very well-maintained facility overall . The complex is within walking distance to several restaurants and shops as well which makes is very convenient.

Another Good Gulf Shores Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just just returned to Oklahoma from a week stay at this super condo! The beach location and the 3rd floor entrance from the parking is a bonus that can not be over emphasized. The unit, furnishings and amenities, such as Wifi, made the stay seem like a home away from home. The daily excursions to the beach, condo pool and nearby numerous restaurants are but a few of the reasons we keep returning to the area, and staying with this owner. Over the past few years, we have stayed in all three of the owner's units. While each unit was an excellent choice, the integrity of the owners is a primary reason for staying at their properties. Outstanding customer integrity to accompany the quality condos keep us coming back year after year.

Spring Breakers

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a wonderful time on this vacation and would recommend it to anyone. Three grown children and my wife had a plenty of room to relax, prepare meals and enjoy March Madness. This condo had an unbelievable view of the gulf right out the living room patio doors or master bedroom patio doors. Watch the dolphins right from the patio - no dolphin cruise needed! Very nice patio to enjoy with the pool directly beneath. The 3rd floor parking is a real bonus with parking available immediately outside your condo door. Beach access is simple with three boardwalks leading to the beach. Laundry facilities in the condo made it easy to pack and convenient. Well equipment kitchen - everything you would need for a vacation get away. We had a chance to meet the owners the day before we left. Very accommodating and pleasant to work with. If we return to the Gulf, we will definitely plan it around availability of this condo unit.

Porche family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been staying in Gulf Shores for several years and truly enjoy this location. We look forward to staying at The Lighthouse for our annual trip. Drive up right to the front door to unload your vehicle, sit on the balcony to enjoy the sound of the gulf and the atmosphere within the condo is so warm and friendly. You feel like your at home. It is the center location for shopping, bike riding and located right on the beach. My grandkids look forward to swimming the pools and playing on the beach. This year we even played golf at the State Park which is only a short drive. If you want a warm and relaxing atmosphere this condo is for you.

Iowa Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We had such an enjoyable experience in Gulf Shores! We were first timers to the Alabama gulf coast and would love to return someday. It offers something for everyone: terrific seafood, great bird watching at nearby parks (though no gators this time of year), interesting Civil War history of Mobile Bay complete with forts (take the ferry from Ft. Morgan to Dauphin Island), relaxing beach combing, watching dolphin from our balcony... You get the idea! We were even treated to a beautiful fireworks display on New Year's Eve that we watched from our balcony. The condo was wonderful and just as described. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs. The unit was spacious which was perfect for our family that includes two teenagers. The owner even provided a good selection of DVDs and games. We made good use of the washer & dryer. Being able to park so close to the unit was a real bonus! We highly recommend this condo to everyone!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Beth ! Yes- you'll definitely want to come back to Gulf Shores area. There is absolutely no way to take in all of the things to do in a single trip. My husband and I having been going there for nearly 20 years and we still find new places to dine and things to do. We do appreciate your business as well !

Great Place for a Girls Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first official girl’s trip and we had a blast!!! The Lighthouse condo was awesome, the condo itself was just like being at home in which I think everyone looks forward to when going on vacation. The kitchen was fully supplied with everything we needed in the way of appliances, pans, dishes, and even wine openers and glasses. The condo was very clean, well furnished, and perfectly located we could not have found a better place to stay! They even provided entertainment for family within the condo such as board games and movies to watch on their DVD player. The owner was very nice, by providing us with a list of great places to eat. If you are looking for some great places to eat try Tacky Jack’s, LuLu’s, and Lamberts (be prepared for a long wait at Lamberts but it is well worth the wait). At the light house we got a chance to park right outside your door. They also have 3 great pools including the indoor pool and for those of you who still want to get your workout on while on vacation, they have a fitness center! It was great to wake up to a fantastic view of the beach every morning and having your breakfast on the patio. If you are looking for a great condo in Gulf Shores then look no further “Light house is your place and Melissa is the best person to book with!!!!

Overall, the listing description was very accurate regarding the location, layout, and amenities. The property was very clean and maintained. The owner/manager provided splendid customer service. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative anyday!

Melissa was wonderful to work with and we had great communication. I highly, highly recommend this condo for your vacation in paradise......we are looking forward to coming back soon!!

Great March 2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came here with another family (both families with young children), and the condo was perfect for us. The bunk room came in handy for the kids. There was plenty of room for the 7 of us (two couples, three kids), and the kitchen was well-stocked. Great gulf-front view and nice big balcony to enjoy. We really enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools as well as the beach, of course. The condo was clean and well-maintained. For other activities, we thoroughly enjoyed going on a nearby dolphin cruise with Cold Mil Fleet (Orange Beach) -- they get the dolphins to jump and surf in the boats' wake! The kids also really enjoyed Lulu's restaurant (sand pile to play in!) and go-carting at The Track.
