We rented the unit for an extended Labor Day weekend getaway. We've never been to Orange Beach but have heard many good things about the area. The pluses were: The condo was clean and nicely equipped. The pictures are a fair representation of the unit. The view from the balcony was outstanding! We were provided the gate code, gym code, and door code prior to arrival via email. The building itself is very well maintained with active visible security present during the evening hours. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent. The beach is the whitest, finest texture sand that I have ever seen. Beach chair and umbrella rentals were available at a very reasonable price. The downside: The bed is not a queen size, it is a full-size bed (measured it), but the mattress is acceptable. The dryer does not heat up which we thankfully discovered while attempting to dry beach towels. We had planned to do laundry so I was grateful that I did not end up with a pile of wet clothes to take home. The dishwasher did not have a silverware basket which was a problem. We also discovered that the door does not lock at all. We found this out the day we left so it was unlocked the entire. We wasted a lot of time putting it a long door code when we could have just simply opened the door. The owner has been notified of these issues and I am sure she will correct the problems. She is a very nice and easy person to deal with. As noted by previous reviews, the unit needs updating. All that being said, if we return to Orange Beach this will be the first place we look to rent.
Although it needs many updates and there were a few problems upon arrival, it was still a great time. I was able to contact owner who took care of issues in a timely manner. The view from balcony made it all worth it.
First and most of all the place was so dirty, we had to go to the store and buy bleach and washing detergent to wash all sheets and towels; had to clean the kitchen and bathroom from top to bottom. Yes, we arrived about 30 min early, and there had been no cleaning service what so ever. The master bed needs a normal mattress and not something from the 5 and time store, the only door that would lock was the front door. That being said, I did get a hold of the owner who is very nice and gave me a 70 dollar refund because the cleaning service failed. I don't think they know what's really going on their. I will not make a return visit, the first day was completely ruined by having to clean everything.
My wife and I really enjoyed this condo. It was directly on the beach where a chair and umbrella rental service awaits. It sits next to what looks like a private home on one side, so I found the beach to be a little less crowded than what I saw when walking in front of other condos. The premises was nice, having an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and hot tub, and a fitness room. A security guard was also present at night for safety. The morning after my arrival, somebody from the management company called to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our stay. One downside was that the room needs a couple repairs. First, the front door is banged up from what looks like it blowing closed too hard (they warn to close the beach-viewing balcony door before opening the front door to prevent this). The only reason this was a problem was because I would have to push my shoulder into the door to lock it. Second, the hair dryer was missing from the bathroom. This wasn't a big deal because my wife brought her own. Neither of these items were important enough to take a star away from this condo unit. It was very close to restaurants, grocery stores, and entertainment. We also saw where there was a boogie board, an umbrella, some small beach buckets and shovels, and a kite for enjoyment. We enjoyed this property and will save the VRBO code to find this unit again when we travel back to orange beach.
I am a snowbird. I rented this unit for 2 months. I enjoyed it. It was clean. The view from the deck was beautiful. Walking the beach, watching sunsets and sunrises, watching the Gulf was delightful. The Shrimp Basket is across the street. Good seafood. Many restaurants are nearby. All good. I hope to return. Everyone I met was friendly. Owner easy to work with.
