About Joan

Our family includes two grown sons; two daughter-in-laws: and two granddaughters, 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. The earliest reviews on this site were from the previous owners, who were gracious enough to leave them up for us, but our changes seem to be well received. 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 Orange Beach

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!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

This has been an outstanding place to stay!! The view is just amazing and can be seen perfectly from both the balcony and inside the condo.

The furnishing and decorations are great my only complaint with that was the bed was so comfy I didn’t want to get up in the morning! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need for your stay. (Except cleaning supplies) on that note I want to add that this unit was very clean when we arrived. Saw some awesome sun rises and sun sets both from the balcony and walking the beach and I would suggest bringing some binoculars, you wont want to miss all the dolphins that feed daily right in front of the condo.

We did have some cool days but still had a great time with the indoor pool/hot tub, fitness center and racket ball court. Always something to do here and even took the bus trip from the Phoenix complex to New Orleans French Quarter and that was great as well.

All the people that work here are very nice and we found Carol to be a great recourse and friendly.

We found the Publix grocery store to be a bit pricey so we did most of our shopping at the WalMart just a bit further west on Perdido drive.

We brought our bikes with and the 25 miles of paved trails in the State park close by was perfect, very peaceful and scenic.

We can recommend the Cobalt restaurant just under the bridge to the east and on Tuesday they have a dine and dance with music starting at 7:30 and 1/2 price drinks and special priced menu as well, good food and great waiters. This was a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone. Take care of the place like you own it and things like this will always be available for us to enjoy.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed the condo and Phoenix East. We also enjoy the views. So glad you found the condo in good, clean condition. The Cobalt Restaurant is one of our favorites. The bicycle , nature trails are well maintained and such a pleasant place to ride or walk. Come back again! Wanted to add that your comment about "taking care as if you own it" is the behavior of the majority of our guests and one of the reasons you can find great places to stay. We want everyone to enjoy their time here just as we do.

Orange Beach Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed first week in March. Much prefer Orange beach to busier Gulf shores. This condo was the perfect place to stay for hubby and I. Great location right on Orange beach. Close to several restaurants which are within walking distance. Condo had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. We would stay here again. bikes from Beach bike rental and ride the wonderful trails at the state park. Great place to walk or ride! Our favorite restaurant was Wolf Bay Lodge. Visit Fort Morgan. A good history lesson and beautiful drive. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Wolf Bay Lodge is one of our favorites too. If you like history and exhibits, you might want to checkout the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, and the battleship Alabama in Mobile, if you haven't already. We never run out of side trips when we are there, or good places to eat, but still find we spend the majority of our time sitting on the balcony or walking on the beach. Hope you can come back soon Joan and David

Beautiful View, Comfortable Furniture, Clean

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week after New Years here, and everything was as described. It was too cold to use the balcony, but the balcony area was large enough to accommodate several people comfortably. Kitchen is well stocked with cookware and dishes, but do bring your own salt/pepper, coffee filters, etc. because those items are not there. We were able to watch dolphins swimming in the gulf while we stayed inside. This was a very nice place to stay!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I have tried to keep items like salt and pepper but it ends up missing. I will try to have coffee filters on hand. I try to share in "Hospitality" items guests might consider bringing with them.

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.
