About Joshua Stewart

My wife and I love being outdoors, especially if we can be on the water. We enjoy kayaking, biking, and cruising in our pontoon boat. We have a 10 pound Maltipoo named Parker who goes everywhere with us (my wife gets upset if he can't come along).

Joshua Stewart purchased this condo in 2010

Why Joshua Stewart chose Alabama Gulf Coast

My wife grew up in North Alabama but spent a significant portion of her childhood in Perdido Key, FL, and Orange Beach, AL, so naturally when she said we needed to go there to visit, I was skeptical. I spent a lot of time on the Atlantic Coast and thought that area was fabulous.

When we visited the area, I instantly saw the attraction. The snow white beaches, sunny skies, and friendlly people drew me to the area.

The Wharf was the perfect combination of city and relaxation. While sitting on the deck, one can bask in the solitude of the area. Stepping outside the front door, you are thrust into a downtown-like atmosphere sure to please the most discriminating tastes.

But don't take our word for it. Come see for yourself!

What makes this condo unique

We decided on a condo at the Wharf as soon as we saw it. The proximity to shopping, restaurants, bars, a marina, the Oasis, the Rave theater, and an amphitheater with top performing artists could not be surpassed at any other location.

We fell in love with our particular condo at first sight. The dark cabinets and complimentary granite countertops, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, relaxing master bath with whirlpool tub, and wonderful view (including occasional opportunities to see the dolphins swim by!) enthralled us.

We absolutely love this condo and know you will, too! Come stay for a night or two and you will never want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to inform you upon my arrival of how impressed my family and I were with your condo! You have excellent taste and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. My husband commented that he didn’t want to return to our house, which is relatively new and modern! Our eleven year old son enjoyed the pleasure of not having to stand to take a shower. Honestly, we toured the entire resort, but would have been content with just staying in the condo if it had not been for the kids needing a meal every once and a while. The pictures don’t do the live viewing justice!

Great Condo and Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

What else can I say that has not already been stated?!? The condo was very spacious and enjoyable. It was well stocked with everything a family needs. There were plenty of clean towels (which were a plus!). There is a washer and dyer, ice maker, gas grill and oustanding patio to enjoy! Everything was nice, peaceful and above all spotless. Joshua (owner) was very quick to respond to our reservation request and all of my questions.

The Wharf has outstanding amenities for any family. The Oasis Pool was great and my kids loved it! There are plenty of restaurants at The Wharf, so whatever you all are craving, you can find it. Our favorite were "Hot Spot" and "Stk Burger". These two places were outstanding!

If your wife or significant other likes to shop, well The Wharf has you covered too. With plenty of money, my wife could do some damage! Our favorite shop was the "Sandollar Lifestyles". It consists of about 10-15 stores that are all connected on the inside with some majors brands having their own little section. Awesome store and decent prices.

There are tons of activities for kids and adults everynight. Bands, water slides, hula hoop contests, arcade, ferris wheel (it was being fixed during our stay and was not operational) and a movie theater!

I would DEFINITELY recommend this property because of Joshua and all of the things to do at The Wharf!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The wharf is a self-contained property and there is little need to leave. The condo has an great layout and the balcony was large. The lazy river was fantastic. There are bands that play on the weekends so it can be loud until around 10 p.m.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so perfect. It is very clean and spacious. We loved staying there. It is beautifully decorated and the pictures do not do it justice. Everything is up to date. There is a tram just down below to take you to the private oasis (key card entry) pool/lazy river. There is a putt putt right around the front entrance of the warf. While we were there they also had a farmers market. The shops are boutique type of shops with plenty of dining,so no need to leave for much at all. The nightly light shows were a big hit with the kids. We sat on the very spacious belong overlooking the ships and a night even had live music. I would highly recommend this condo and will be coming back to stay again

A good nights sleep!

  • 5 of 5

I believe this was the most enjoyable "quick trip" to Orange Beach that I've ever experienced; thanks to your accommodation! The coffee pot was not working, but so it goes. All of your furniture is comfy and well appointed and you have an awesome balcony overlooking the marina. The unit was also very clean; wonderful! Can't think of anything you've not thought of. We felt right at home. Hope to stay longer next time.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This property is spacious, well-maintained, and in the heart of all The Wharf amenities. The beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped, including a large ice-maker, wine cooler, and everything else you might need. The large balcony faces the marina and has a modern, clean, grill. Check-in and check-out were easy and quick. Parking is individually designated and easy to access. Security is top notch, and there is free shuttle service to the pool area. Plenty of nice shops and restaurants within a stones throw, and a short walk to the amphitheater. This would be, without a doubt, our premiere accommodation option for local events. Very very well-done!

Great place to enjoy the wharf.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, well decorated, and in a very convenient place for us. We enjoyed having the shops and restaurants close by. However, the oasis pool was farther away than we expected, and made it difficult for us to enjoy it. We will definitely be coming back to the wharf, and would love to rent from you again.

Golf: Orange Beach Golf Center offers a spectacular golfing experience. The beautiful setting, challenging course, and elegant clubhouse create a golf atmosphere that both the golf novice and enthusiast will admire. Designed in the traditional plantation-style, The Clubhouse at Orange Beach Golf Center is complete with a dining room and golf Pro Shop. The Clubhouse is perfectly situated to give guests a spectacular view of the surrounding fairways.

The Golf Club's 18 championship holes were designed by the renowned father-son team of Jay and Carter Morrish, and feature a few sharp doglegs, bunkers, and the occasional water hazard.

Formerly known as The Gulf Shores Golf Club, the course was built in the 1960s and was the first golf course in Gulf Shores. In November 2005, the course closed to undergo a complete renovation. Taking place under the guidance of Jay and Carter Morrish, the renovation lengthened the par 71 course by 300 yards and added numerous water features, enhanced fairways, and additional bunkers.

The goals to beautify and enhance the course, and to make play more challenging, have been achieved. There are now holes that are so dramatically changed that you cannot stand in the fairway and believe you are on the same course. The Morrish group delivered on their promise and the result is a spectacular product that no golf enthusiast will want to miss.

Course length: Championship 6,812 yards, Blue 6,365 yards, White 5,950 yards, Red 5,362 yards
