In the evenings enjoy the fine dinning at Colbalts or a relaxing outdoor setting at the Gulf, see live music at the Florabama bar, or simply enjoy each others company in our comfy seafront outdoor space. We know you will love your stay as much as we do in our little piece of paradise. Thanks, Chris and Melanie

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

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.

October At My Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

I was blessed to be able to spend a week with my cousin at this beautiful property right out of the pages of "Coastal Living." Then we stayed another week when my husband and other family members arrived. The property is decorated in a style reminiscent of Restoration Hardware. Not only is it gorgeous, but it has a beautiful, beachfront view that never let us down with sunrises and the setting sun. Every amenity imaginable was at our fingertips. When we weren't eating out we made homemade chicken and dumplings in the crockpot, breakfast every day, we had a debate party on the night of the last presidential debate cooking "left" and "right" wings on the grill, and enchiladas with all the fixings another evening. The beach was uncrowded as was the pool area. The fishermen were catching whiting, flounder, and a skip jack. We saw dolphins, one shark, crabs, and a few juvenile Portuguese, blue Man-O-War. The weather was perfect, as it always is in October in the south. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully, in the not-so-distant future. We have been visiting this area for over twenty-one years, and we are so thankful that people such as yourselves open your homes to complete strangers so that we can feel a little like "locals," for a few weeks out of the year.

Excellent, beyond expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As I originally indicated to the owner, I had to meet the needs of 3 couples over the age of 60. After literally viewing 200+ properties, I settled on this one and EVERYONE SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED FOUND THIS PROPERTY TO EXCEED THEIR EXPECTATIONS!

First of all, every person loved their beds, that say a lot for us mature and picky vacationers. Everyone marveled at how nicely the unit was decorated ( not what you would typically find in a rental unit.) It was also extremely clean, not a speck of sand was seen or felt. Any type of cooking appliance, utensils, glassware, etc. that we required were there. The patio was wonderful and easily accommodated all 6 adults plus a couple of guests. The unit had 4 great beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. EVERYTHING in the description of the property is spot on except, one of the bedrooms has 2 queen size beds instead of a king.

Only complaint we had was it was hot with high humidity and no breeze the first few days.

If you like crowds, don't rent this unit. It is located in an area of a group of low rise buildings and, to the east of the property, there is open space. Except for 4 other units that had been rented, we had this strip of beach to ourselves. Can't recommend "The Gulf" to eat at. Good if you have kids, basically just serves burgers. Would definitely rent this unit again without hesitation.

A+ vacation locale

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week's stay at Beache Keen & can't wait to make a return visit! The condo is attractively decorated & well equipped beyond most condo rentals. Being a low density building meant the beach & pool weren't crowded & our small grandchildren were able to swim & play freely. Would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a relaxing beach vacation. We will definitely be planning another stay!

Exceeded all Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online just do not do it justice. The furnishings are gorgeous, and the unit is very spacious. The building is on the smaller side, so the beach was never crowded. We would recommend this unit to anyone, and would definitely stay there again. The owners are extremely friendly and easy to work with.

Adorable place. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Have 6 teenage kids and was very convenient to walk out directly to a fairly private beach area. Owners provided everything we needed. Place was decorated nice and beachy! We would definitely stay here again. Hopefully the stairs will be fixed next time though. They were in real need of repair.

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our beach home. We try very hard to make everyones stay the best. The stairs on the left side of our condo get the wind and spray from the beach, so every year and a half it has to be repainted and is scheduled for completion this year. FYI Stairs are now fixed (7-2016) - sorry for the inconvenience Thanks for your review. Melanie Finke
