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!

First time to the beach was a CHARM!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Orange Beach ever and what a success. The best part of the trip was definitely our stay at room 202 at the Phoenix East complex. Mrs Joan was the best....she was very easy to contact, talk to and very personal. The room was nothing shy of perfect for what we needed. I was with my fiance', a 12 year old and a 6 year old. We had plenty of room and the convenience of being on the second floor was great. When we weren't at the beach, we were at the pool (indoor and outdoor). If I had anything to suggest for improvement, it would be the barbecue area. There are four pits, but not enough room to actually sit four family's. Other than that, nothing else wrong. Parking was close every day to the main entrance and the staff was so helpful any time we contacted them. Thanks again Mrs. Joan for the kind service and for being there when we needed to talk to you. We shall definitely be back!!!!

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!

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a cute place to stay. VERY clean and very accommodating. My husband and I just wanted to relax for the weekend and it was the perfect setup for us. The location was not far from all the restaurants and attractions that we were interested in.

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.
