Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This third floor beachfront condo, decorated with an emphasis on comfort, is just steps from the pool and the beach! We just repainted the whole place in a relaxing shade of blue and the new, leather sofa adds a nice touch of luxury to go along with the laid back feel of the recliners in both the living room as well as on the sun porch.

Imagine yourself lounging on your recliner having your morning coffee on the enclosed sun porch by the Gulf of Mexico. Catch the spirit of a tropical retreat as you rejuvenate while sipping your favorite drink, watching the sun disappear into the water.

The colorful décor of your oceanfront condo, from the Italian tile in the living area to the relaxing recliners on the sun porch, is designed around the ideas of comfort, enjoyment and building memories that will last a lifetime. All of our guests continue to rave about how their every need was met, from the beach chairs, colorful umbrellas, and children’s sand toys in the renter’s closet to the seafood boiling pots, pizza pans and oyster knife in the kitchen.

Drift off to sleep to the scent of ocean breezes and the sound of waves caressing the white sand beach. Sleep late, or just open your eyes to enjoy a spectacular sunrise from the comfort of your beachfront bedroom. Enjoy a week when your most pressing decision is choosing between the beach and the pool.

While your condo comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, know that award winning restaurants with delectable cuisines but forgettable prices are just a short drive or even a romantic stroll down the beach. Don’t worry about missing the big game, your favorite show or the latest movie. There are large TV’s and DVD players in each bedroom. Or better yet, borrow a book from our library and enjoy a good read on the beach. If we don’t have what you need, let us know; and we will do all we can to make your visit so memorable that it will become a family tradition.

Welcome to our Gulf Towers family where MAGIC is a place, and it can be yours in Gulf Shores! You cannot believe the view from our condo. Ask for more great photos and with a click, you will be standing in the Gulf coast surf! Call today!

About Frank

Hello fellow beach lovers! We are Frank and Anna Arnold, a couple of retired teachers who live outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We have been married for 40 years now, and we have spent as much of that time at the beach as we could manage. When we were able to swing a deal to buy a place on the Gulf of Mexico, we thought it would be great to be able to share our little slice of heaven with others so that you too could enjoy our favorite beach. That, and we need the rental income. We're retired teachers, not bankers!

Our goal is to provide a comfortable place for our guests where you can relax and enjoy your hard-earned vacation at the beach! We have tried to provide for every need, but we are eager to supply anything we may have overlooked or solve any problem that may arise. Your job is to just relax, play on the beach and enjoy!

Frank purchased this condo in 1999

Why Frank chose Alabama Gulf Coast

The Gulf Tower is the best built structure on the beach.

We have just about the largest and nicest pool on West Beach and it is really 'on the beach'! You can't get any closer to the waves than when you stay at The Gulf Tower!

What makes this condo unique

This is one of the few places on the beach where you don't have to sit in some hard plastic or droopy folding chair to relax and watch the waves roll in. Out unique

sun porch lets you enjoy a fantastic beach view while resting your tooshes in comfortable recliners!

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great. Close to everything. Just a short drive to Foley for the outlet stores and to the Pensacola Naval Air Station Museum. The enclosed patio was the highlight of our stay. We could sit out on the patio in the recliners and enjoy the wonderful gulf breeze and the sounds of the waves. Heated pool came in handy for the cooler days. Fully stocked kitchen allowed us to eat in often, which was helpful. Owners are wonderful to work with. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived on a HOT afternoon, we found the condo to be so cool and what a GREAT VIEW. I was a little concerned that I would not like the enclosed porch, but I fell in LOVE! You can watch the waves roll in and hear them too, so in the heat of the day I was relaxing in a recliner and cool as a cucumber. The distance from the condo to the beach is wonderful, just a short walk across the sand. The location of the condo is great also, just a little ways down West Beach away from the crowd (West beach has always been my fav). Owners were so easy and pleasant to rent from, wish everyone could experience a painless rental (I have had my share of others that have not been so). I would recommend this condo to anyone, pictures were accurate, condo was clean and location can't be beat.

The BEST on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location last summer, May 2012. It was perfect for our family, which includes my husband, myself, and our two small girls (4 & 2). The condo itself was well-kept and just as described. The facility was awesome. You literally get off the elevator, walk just a few steps to the pool, and then a few more steps to the beach. The location on the beach is also great. And you'll have no trouble finding any place to eat, because you're so close to everything. Also, the owners were great about communication prior to our trip. You couldn't ask for a better place to say in Gulf Shores!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME WE WORKED WITH THESE OWNERS AND THEY ARE JUST THE GREATEST!!! ACTUALLY THAT IS WHY WE CAME HERE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T WANT TO RENT WITH ANYONE ELSE. THEY EVEN CUT THEIR TRIP SHORT SO WE COULD COME IN AND HAVE 2 DAYS AT THE SHRIMP FESTIVAL!! THAT BEING SAID, THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY. CLOSE TO EVRYTHING, CLEAN NEAT AND VERY COMFORTABLE. EASY WALK TO THE BEACH AND /OR POOL AND ALL THE CONVIENCES OF HOME.

BOTH OF THEIR CONDOS ARE SUPERB AND MAKE IT WORTH THE DRIVE!! CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE.

Map

A family oriented beach town with all the amenities: restaurants, shopping, historical sights, night life, golf and fishing...and of course the beach. Short drives take you to Mobile, artistic Fairhope, Biloxi and the Florida line is just a few miles away (but there is no reason to go to Florida as you have a better beach just out your front door!)
