Beautiful home in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Usually when the pictures don't tell the real story of the accomodation it is the exact opposite of this lovely home. And the pictures are very nice. But the reality is much, much nicer. A beautiful home, tastefully deocrated, with nearly everything you need for a fun beach retreat - and we left behind a juicer to make making Margaritas a little easier (enjoy!). We stayed in the off-season, so the beaches were empty, the building was quiet and we had pretty much all of the town to ourselves. For a quick, spring getaway it was perfect.

Owner's Response: Dan, Thank you for the kind words and the juicer! What a wonderful present and I'm sure it will get a lot of use! Now we have everything to make a stay there perfect! Please come back come back and stay with us again! Melanie and Chris

Such a lovely, comfortable well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal, and the owners thought of absolutely everything. Now what about that ice machine? No more daily trips for ice! It was perfect in every way, and the local suggestions were so very helpful. Loved the porch and the view from the second floor was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a lovlier in which to relax and enjoy the beach and each other. We'll definitely be back!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our condo! The location was very ideal. Not a huge crowd on the beach. There was plenty of room to put our own chairs and umbrellas out each morning. The condo was extremely nice and beautifully decorated! All the beds were super comfortable! We have no complaints and highly recommend this condo!

Perfect Condo and Location for Our 3 Generation Family of 8 ranging in age from 5 to 65.

  • 5 of 5

Beache Keen is EXACTLY as described. The condo is beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen.

Things I loved:

1. Balcony - It's small but mighty. The balcony is an extension of the living room. It's beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishings and a place you will not want to leave.

2. 3rd Bedroom - Unlike most condos, in addition to 2 bedrooms with king beds, the 3rd bedroom offers 2 Queen size beds. This is NOT typical in my experience.

3. Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs, Umbrellas & Beach Towels - It might seem little, but it's the little things that make your stay great. Chairs are so comfortable I fell asleep for 3 hrs in one of them. More comfortable than the rented ones.The beach towels are huge and so nice to not have to bring our own.

4. Distance to the Beach - It's so close you'll never think twice about walking back and forth a few times a day.

5. Parking - Plenty of covered parking makes it nice to get into a car that wasn't baking in the sun all day.

6. Seclusion - This small low rise bldg only has 24 units. Immediately to the right is another low rise bldg and immediately to the left is a large piece of undeveloped land. Beaches are sparsely used and at times we felt like we were the only ones on the beach.

7. All the extras - You can tell this isn't just a rental, but someones home. There is an array of seasonings, salt and pepper - things people typically might forget. Games - Several games we enjoyed. We even left a new one, Cranium. My crew decided they liked the ones offered better. Flashlights and Batteries - What a treat to have flashlights available for some nightime beach exploring. My grandkids LOVED these. Broom & Vacuum - now this may seem silly, but I've been in many condo's that don't have a basic broom which IMHO is a necessity when you're on the beach. Good soap at all sinks and baths. Bug Spray - well sometimes you need it and most people don't travel with it.

8. Very responsive owners - We had a couple of hiccups that were addressed immediately.

What I didn't like:

1. There is nothing about the interior of this condo to NOT like. It is perfect.

2. The Gulf Water was murky and not so clear on some days. Not so bad I wouldn't return though.

What do I wish was there that wasn't:

1. Corn Cob holders. Alabama has great King Silver Fresh Corn in the summer.

2. Drawers in 3rd Bedroom. It's hard to unpack when you have nowhere to put your undies.

Great #FamilyVacay2017!

Great time at the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay. We all liked the style in which the condo was decorated. The furniture was so very inviting with lots of soft pillows. The grands enjoyed the large coffee table for puzzles and playing. Everyone remarked on the beds being comfortable and soft. My favorite place was the balcony porch. I loved the furniture and it is perfect for taking a nap. The view was beautiful during the day and at night. I didn't want to come inside. Great place to stay and relax.

Had a wonderful stay at Beache Keen in orange beach. Dolphin key is very well kept and has very easy access to the beach. I highly recommend this property.

About Melanie Finke

We live in Austin, Tx. Our family have been enjoying Orange Beach on our summer vacations for 10 plus years when our children were younger......We were reacquainted with Orange Beach and its beauty in 2011 and decided to buy our own place there. We love everything about Orange Beach....good food, great people and lots of time to enjoy the beach. It's the only place where we can truly relax......we hope that your stay will be all of that and more

Melanie Finke purchased this condo in 2011

Why Melanie Finke chose Orange Beach East

Our condo has only 30 residences, unlike the larger units where you fight for beach chairs, space and elevators. Our place offers a private, hassle free setting - peace of mind that we all want when we vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We love the intimate patio with the couch and love seat which provides us time to converse and enjoy the sea.
