Beachfront condo with private balcony overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Thank you so much for visiting our VRBO site. We are a Mississippi family who always dreamed of a home at Orange Beach. We purchased our little piece of Orange Beach at the end of 2017, and we think Summer House is the greatest place to vacation, especially unit 1004B. We’re sure other sites you’ve visited have told you about the Summer House complex, so we are just going to tell you what makes our unit so special.
We wanted our unit to have a “Coastal Living” style, and we think we accomplished our goal. The entire unit is painted “Sea Salt” in color. This relaxing tone is a very light blue/grey, but it changes with the light. You may even see a hint of green as the sun falls. All the trim is painted a bright white, giving the unit a clean, crisp look. Everything is bright and light. We have new ceramic till throughout that looks like hardwood. Everyone who visits leaves with a plan to go home and remodel just like this unit. It has such a relaxing environment. It’s just beautiful.
For the living room, we chose two full size linen sofas with one opening into a sleeper bed. These down-filled sofas offer the perfect spot for an afternoon nap during the hottest time of the day. The boys insisted on two ocean blue recliners to flank the couches. We knew there would be a fight over who got the chair so we went ahead and got two! These chairs recline all the way back and are made of the softest leather you’ve ever felt. We added a 47” flat screen TV mounted to the wall as well as a HD DVD player -- all ready for a family Redbox movie night. The TV is equipped with internet so you can access your Netflix and Pandora accounts while on vacation. Colorful original art work adorns the entire unit. It’s like having your very own art gallery to enjoy. All the tables in the unit are reclaimed and refurbished with a distressed look including the big 60” round driftwood dining table with plenty of room for 8 family members to gather up for dinner or a good ole’ game night.
Have you ever stayed in beach homes where all the cooking supplies were cheap? We hate that! We made sure to stock our kitchen with the best cooking equipment you’ll need to cook wonderful meals while vacationing. We included nice dishware and silverware to set the table for a fabulous meal for your family and friends. We don’t think you’ll have any complaints about the kitchen, except who’s going to cook dinner. The super-quiet Bosch dishwasher makes cleaning easier. New quartz countertops have been installed in the kitchen and baths resembling natural marble.
Our unit has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. There is a king size bed in the first two bedrooms and 2 queen beds in the third. Each bed is lined with brand new white 450-thread sheets and bedding. Each room has room darkening curtains for late morning sleeping, as well as a flat screen TV mounted to the wall. Both bathrooms have new faucets and showerheads, along with all new towels!
We feel the most important components to a great beach home are vast ocean views, comfy beds, and a large outdoor patio. Our unit has all of this! Our ocean view and patio are perfect. Guests often comment our patio is like having the beach all to yourself since no other units are in view. All you see is the vast Gulf of Mexico. And the patio is huge offering plenty of room for our bar-height Adirondack table and chairs to seat 6, along with additional lounge chair seating. We are partial, but we think we have the most beautiful and stylish unit at Summerhouse, and we have no doubt you too will love it!

Awesome place!!! Beautiful inside an out!! Owners were very easy to communicate with!! Will def keep this on my list of places to book in the future!! Thank you!!!
Perfect Spring Break!
Two of my adult children, my husband, and my three grandchildren stayed at this property from April 2nd to April 7th, 2018. Getting in to the condo was no problem at all! My husband was thrilled that they had carts next to the elevators to help bring all the stuff up to the 10th floor. The condo was decorated in a relaxing beach theme and I could feel stress melt away as soon as I entered. The beds were comfortable. The linens were great. The balcony was amazing. We spent quite a bit of time out there just looking at the water. What a great Gulf-front property. Having a washer and dryer with kids was imperative and we appreciated all the extras in the condo. The outdoor pool was a bit cold for our taste so we spent quite a bit of time in the indoor pool and hot tub as well as on the beach (the whole reason we were there!!) Getting to the beach was very easy. One of the elevators stopped working while we were there but they had it fixed within 24 hours. There was plenty of parking. My husband just couldn't get over what a great property this was and kept telling me "I had done well!!". I would absolutely book this property again.
We are so glad your family enjoyed our home away from home, Christina! We think our vacation beds, linens, and washer/dryer should be as good as, or better, than we have at home. Please come back again!
The owner made the stay easy and wonderful. The condo had plenty of room. The beds were AMAZING!
So happy that you enjoyed our condo! Gotta have great beds to have a relaxing vacation. We look forward to having your family back again!
Love, love, love this condo!
I have to first say, Mrs. Porch was more than helpful. She responded very quickly to my e-mails. We absolutely loved the condo, and the location was perfect. We will definitely be returning! Thank you to the Porch’s for putting in a ton of effort to make their condo feel like a home!
We are so glad the Durhams got to enjoy our peaceful home away from home!! Please come back whenever you can!
