About Leigh Marks

My husband and I are originally from Tennessee. We moved to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area 9 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.

Knee deep in the water somewhere...

  • 5 of 5

Blue skies, blowing wind in my hair...and all this on the balcony! What a blessing this oceanfront retreat was to our family! Some rain and some sun. Lots of great meals on the balcony and great thunderstorm light shows over the water. Having vacationed multiple times in Destin, FL we were pleasantly surprised at the slower pace of Orange Beach. It truly is the best kept secret on the Gulf Coast! Our children loved the coziness of the bunk beds in the hallway and the four of us had plenty of space. We strongly encourage you to make the trip to Pensacola to see the Blue Angels practice and visit the Naval Aviation Museum. We went twice and had a meal at McGuire's Pub while we were there. It was great and only a 2O minute drive! Do eat at the Shrimp Basket (we told you where not to eat in the guestbook). And coffee at the Southern Grind, along with their amazing Red Velvet Cookie Sandwiches were to die for! The beach is delightful and catching ghost crabs at nightfall was a highlight for all of us. We would love to be able to return someday. If you're looking for a bit more luxury I would suggest bringing you own bedding. Otherwise, it has everything you need and the most delightful ocean view!

Beautiful views & relaxing family atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Stayed March 19-25, 2016

This was our first trip to Orange Beach and our family really enjoyed this atmosphere! The condo was perfect size for our family of 4. Our kids are 10 and 7 and loved the bunk beds. We thought we may use the pull out couch at some point for one of them but never needed to. We were happy we had this as an option though for backup plan if the bunk beds didn't work out. The condo is laid back which we loved. Very clean and updated. Perfect views to watch the Dolphins jumping in the water. Great spot for breakfast and coffee out on the balcony. The views of the sunrise are beautiful on the beach- would highly recommend waking up early to catch it!

So many seashells to choose from on the beach which the kids really loved, also enjoyed seeing the sand dollars washed up on shore.

Leigh was so easy to work with. This was or first time booking on HomeAway and it couldn't have been any easier. I was nervous but Leigh gave clear cut directions for everything we needed for the condo stay.

We enjoyed going to dinner at The Hangout and LuLus as these places had great entertainment for the kids but adults loved it too-so fun!

Beautiful sand, fun waves, and great family/quiet atmosphere. Has a laid back Florida feel. We really enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully be back sometime soon!!

Thanks for everything Leigh!

The kids will love a day at Waterville, sliding down the giant slides and riding surfboard (flowrider). They will also like testing their driving skills at the Trac on some really fun go carts.

A trip to the Pensacola Naval Air Museum should not be missed.
