About Joan

Our family includes two grown sons; two daughter-in-laws: and a granddaughter, all in Alabama. We enjoy taking our family for fun filled adventures and now, relaxing days at the beach building sandcastles with our granddaughter. We live in Katy, Texas, just west of Houston. David is a native Texan born in Midland, while Joan was raised in Birmingham, Alabama. We love visiting the gulf coast with its many activities. We have visited Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for a number of years and decided to invest in a condominium for our family to enjoy. Earlier reviews on this site were from the previous owners, who were gracious enough to leave them up for us, since the condo, location and property manager are all the same. As the new owners we intend to maintain the same high standards the previous owners set. After purchasing the condo we began to add soothing paint colors and make other improvements. Our goal is to make this a relaxing, comfortable place for you to enjoy as much as we do!

Joan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Joan chose Alabama Gulf Coast

After viewing numerous other complexes we found that the Phoenix East complex was well maintained; had lovely landscaping; and a beautiful pool area that looks directly to the beach. We picked this particular unit for its recent upgrades and breathtaking view of the gulf. We were also impressed with the amenities here that many other complexes lacked. The condominium has a heated indoor pool for cooler weather enjoyment, 2 hot tubs, sauna, a fully equipped exercise room, racquetball court, 2 tennis courts, basketball court, kids’ splash pad, 6 charcoal grills and poolside gazebos in which to have a picnic.

High Speed WIFI is provided throughout the building and pool area. The Phoenix East lobby area is comfortable and welcoming, with a book exchange and coffee. The 24 hour Phoenix East staff is professional, friendly and eager to be of help.

This complex is within walking distance of Perdido Pass, The Gulf beach café, and the San Roc Cay Marina shopping area. There are a variety of nearby restaurants that offer casual fare to fine dining. There are numerous water, boating, and fishing opportunities. Nature trails for walking and biking are very popular. If you are on the beach and look to the East there is a jetty that you can fish from, and get a close up view of the boats traversing the pass to and from the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

From the parking lot, the unit is on the second floor. There is easy access to the elevators and just steps away from the stairwell. The entry area is quiet and unobstructed. From the beach side, the spacious balcony of the unit is on the third level and the gulf view is spectacular. Early mornings find us relaxing on the balcony with coffee before our daily beach walk. Sunsets and Sunrises are NOT to be missed from the balcony, or the occasional view of dolphins swimming by the shore. The Perdido Pass jetty and boat traffic are clearly visible.

We refer to Unit 202 as “Sweet Home Alabama”, because our times of R&R there are truly sweet. We plan to retire in a couple of years and are headed back to Alabama to live, but we will always have a special feeling for this “Sweet Home” on the beach.

Feel free to email or call us with questions. God has blessed us and we love the idea of being able to share our place with others. We hope that you and yours enjoy the same pleasurable times in Orange Beach that have provided such memorable occasions in the lives of our family and friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We normally go to Destin, FL but decided to try Orange Beach since we only had five days. Was a great decision. Our condo was exactly what we wanted. The beach was awesome....water was beautiful. We are big walkers and loved the walk across the bridge each morning. Every night we walked to restaurants close by. And as a bonus....stopped at outlet mall on way home!

The condo was very nice and great location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Room 202 was very nice inside, had everything we needed for our stay, and was a quick walk to the beach or pool. Our kids had a great time on their spring break (ages 6 and 9). A lot of fun memories were made and we would definitely stay in this condo again. The kids loved the option of outdoor/ indoor pool, hot tub, or beach. The staff was very friendly and we lucked out with great weather the week of our stay. Thank you Joan and David!

Quick trip - but this place was exeptionally clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Joan, was a delight to deal with! Responded promptly. The condo is decorated bright and beachy and exceptionally clean. Beach is a short walk just across the nice boardwalk. Location is great! My sister and I slept on the pullout couch bed and it was surprisingly very comfortable! The view is breathtaking. Will definitely consider staying here again.

Condo Unit 202 was very comfortable. We chose this condo because it had a shower and two recliners. Just what we needed. We had trouble with the adjustment knob on the shower. The first few days it was very hard to turn, but after multiple showers, the knob became easier. We did go out and purchase cushions for the balcony patio chairs. After a while, the chairs were not comfortable to sit in. But we are Senior Adults and need comfort. We saw the Blue Angels fly by on the first day we were there and even saw two birds carrying a fish with their feet. We were concerned abut Phoenix East building sitting too far back from the water, but really did not have a problem with it. We enjoyed watching the boats come and go and all the parasailers. In all the years we have been coming to Orange Beach and staying at a Phoenix facility, this Condo Unit 202 has been the most comfortable of them all. I will definitely recommend this condo for its comfort. Thank you very much for sharing this condo with us. It made our vacation trip extra special and comfortable.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo with great access to everything. I have stayed in many different condos over the years, and the cleanliness of this one was second to none. It also had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on! Our hats off to the owner and we hope to come back again.

Memorable & Beautiful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our spring break vacation as a family! Our 1 yr old & 15 yr old both enjoyed themselves! The atmosphere in OB is unlike any other beach. Everyone is so family oriented & laid back. Our condo was perfect!!! Fully equipped with one of literally EVERYTHING! The views are unbeatable along with the beach access. Right out of the back door! We stayed 3/18-3/22 and we are coming back heavily kissed by the sun! We could have beached and pooled every hour of every day we were there if we wanted to. The weather couldn't have been better! Can't wait to come back! Love love love 202!!!!!! Thank you for having us!!!!!

Car: not necessary

A favorite beach vacation locale. Phoenix East is located within a short distance from Perdido Pass and the Florida state line. In a short drive you can visit the Pensecola Air and Naval Museum, book a tee time and several outstanding golf courses, or simply enjoy the beach. Boating and shopping are located directly across from the phoenix east property. Walk to several nice restaurants. Too much to do in just one week.
