My husband, Ed, and I are both accountants who live in Houston, TX. We have a son and a daughter, 5 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. We both love and enjoy the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach area and how friendly everyone in Alabama seems to be. Ed made my dream come true to own a property right on the beach in 2008 and we were able to buy another larger property in 2012.

The Colonnades is a gorgeous upscale property built in 2006 with 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths with 2104 square feet and a 26 foot wide huge balcony. We wanted a place that allowed plenty of room for family for fun beach vacations. When we saw the amazing views of the Gulf, the beach and the sunsets from the floor to ceiling windows on the South and West walls, we were sold. Waking up in the master bedroom, the view makes you feel like you're right on the water.
The Colonnades has a retractable, clear cover for its pool and Jacuzzi for the Winter, that still allows you to enjoy the gorgeous Gulf views, but protects you from the weather. There are only 3 units per floor and only 53 in the building so there is always plenty of room on the beach.
This condo was everything it was listed to be. The balcony on the 11th floor left us with a great view of the ocean and beach. The pool was great. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay a pleasure. The condo was well maintained. If you are looking for a place to stay where the beaches are great and you can sleep quiet every night you have found it. The owners were great and helped me thru the rental process.
This condo is amazing! It's on the 11th floor and has a GIANT balcony with a great view of the gulf. The condo has 3 nice regular rooms and a fantastic master bedroom with a large bathroom complete with 2-person shower and a jacuzzi. The condo is well-maintained, has nice furniture, and comes with a lot of the daily necessities (plates, dishes, towels, utensils, etc.) Would definitely stay here again. Loved it!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated and very spacious condo! I am always nervous booking vacation rentals for my family because if it isn't as good as described, well, I get the blame. haha! This condo certainly was everything we anticipated. We have two new babies in the family, so we were pleased to find a basket of toys for tots! The beds and sheets were very comfortable, although the pull out sofa wasn't that great. But are they ever? The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, cookware, etc, however, we found the cabinet layout a little lacking. Each morning we enjoyed our coffee from the balcony while watching the dolphins play! The wifi quit working the 3rd day we were there. However, I don't think it's the property's fault. We were there during the busiest time of year, so I'm sure internet connections were slow everywhere. I'm just happy my neice was able to finish her online mid-term before we lost service. I would like to say, although we loved the room, the balcony, the view, the soft sheets, the pool and hot tub, the property's best ammenity is LOCATION! Not only did we have plenty of room on the beach, while other complexes were shoulder to shoulder crowded, the convenience of being so close to restaurants, shopping, and other activites without heavy traffic was a VERY nice surprise! I would definitely recommend this property and condo to anyone! My family approved and so will yours!
I spent a week at this condo and wish I hadn't. The interior paint job is laughable. They touched up paint spots all over the place and never painted the walls over completely so it looks bad - I understand now it was probably so the owners could spend as little as possible. Some of the amenities such as the garbage cans, disposal, and ice machine were either broken or worked poorly. When I arrived the tv wasn't working in one of the rooms, when I contacted the owner she was of no help at all and seemed to make more excuses not to have to do anything than want to help. There's lots of these condos on the beach, find a different one with a owner that cares about the quality of your stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Condo was great. Would stay again. Digital key entrance was a great plus.
This condo is nicely appointed with all the amenities and space needed for a great family beach stay. We stayed 6 nights with our two grown daughters and their children (girl 5 yrs plus 3 boys 3, 5, 8). There was plenty of room for sleeping/chilling. The kids played on the beach ALL DAY building sand castles, boogie boarding and sea shell collecting. We all swam in the pool after dinner. The kitchen gave us plenty of room for cooking family dinners (we never dined out because no one wanted to leave). The balcony was great for people watching and our binoculars were great for watching birds and all the water sports like para sailing and jet skis. It is located close to a state park which is protected, keeping us away from the crowds. We did not have to wait for elevators (like similar larger complexes) and the beach was right there! We found a slice of heaven and peace away from our everyday work- life. We all agreed our family built memories to draw from for a lifetime!
The Hangout is about a mile away. The Gulf State Park is right next door. 'The Little Zoo that Could,' a Water Park, and miniature golf are about 2 miles away. Less than 10 miles away is the Floribama, the Tanger Outlet Mall, Books a Million, Bed Bath and Beyond, Lowe's, Home Depot and many more stores. There are many area lakes. 30 miles away in Pensacola, FL is the Naval Aviation Museum.
