About Leigh Marks

My husband and I are originally from Tennessee. We moved to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area 12 years ago after vacationing here for over 15 years. We loved the area so much that we even got married and spent our honeymoon in Gulf Shores. With the white sandy beaches, fishing, boating, golf, and family atmosphere, Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is the perfect place to vacation.

Leigh Marks purchased this condo in 2010

Why Leigh Marks chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We chose the Tidewater because of all its amenities and its great location to everything in Orange Beach.

What makes this condo unique

The unit is located on the first floor for easy accessibility via stairs or elevator. The view from our balcony of the pool and the white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico is absolutely beautiful. The complex is across the street from the Zeke's marina where some of the best fishing charters in the area can be taken.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at this condo. The condo was very clean and had many little extras in it like washing powder, soaps, and coffee. The view was awesome. We needed for nothing. The condo was equipped with everything. Bed was very comfortable. I am always worried about the bed when I stay away from home. This one did not disappoint. Deposit was refunded the day after we returned home. Owners were awesome. Would definitely return to this condo and would recommend it. My husband has a problem with heights but this condo is perfect. On first floor but the second level on condo. He did not have a problem with it and it was so nice for him to be able to sit on balcony and enjoy view. To sit on the balcony and have meals and coffee in morning was perfect. Can't wait to return. We ate at the Oyster House and was pleased. My favorite meal was across the street at Zeke's Marina. The restaurant was Wolf Bay Lodge. We ate outside and could see all the boats at the dock. We loved it.
