Bunk area can be closed off from living room and bedroom for privacy. Wi-Fi available at small fee.

Great central Orange Beach location near restaurants, fishing, parks, shopping, marinas and the world famous Flora-Bama.

To the east it's a 30 minute drive to Pensacola, Florida where you may visit the Naval Air Station (home of the Blue Angels) and the Naval Flight Museum. To the west it's a 1 hour drive to Mobile Bay where the USS Alabama is docked. A short drive west from Mobile are the Biloxi Casinos.

Million Dollar View from Your Balcony!
average rating of 4.630435 based on 46 reviews

Excellent all around!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were more than enough for my wife, myself, and our three kiddos (7, 4, 8m). The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds and the balcony, and the beach access couldn't have been better! Everything was exactly as it was described in the ad, right down to the million dollar view from the balcony!

The beach right outside of the property is super clean and well taken care of, and even on Friday during peak hours the crowds weren't crazy. It's a great spot for finding awesome seashells, getting a sweet sunburn, and apparently for surfing, too, as we got to watch many people ride the waves next to where we were.

It's in an excellent location in town, very close to just about everything in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, as well as very close to the Florida state line. Within 20 minutes of Lambert's Cafe and Krispy Kreme, neither of which can I recommend enough! Master Joe's has some of the best sushi I've ever eaten, as well as a very friendly staff. The Pirate Adventure Minigolf (the full name escapes me, but it is something to that effect) down the road in Gulf Shores was a blast for my wife and I as much as it was for the kids!

Many thanks to Mr. Jason for answering my phone call during our stay, and for helping us to remedy the situation very quickly (which was figuring out who to report a found wallet to, nothing at all was wrong with the property). Everything in the condo was immaculate, and fully stocked with utensils and dinnerware.

In summary, we had a freaking blast on our vacation, and I would be very surprised if my kids don't insist that we go back in the next few years!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure throughout the entire process. Our family had a wonderful time, we took advantage of the bike trails - renting our bikes from Infinity Bicycles and got to see nature along the entire path. Our two boys had a blast parasailing, zip lining and of course playing on the beach which was right out of our door. Great times!

Amazing View and Location to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The view was amazing and the location to the beach was awesome! Great location, close by many activities. The only negative was the mattress on the pull out bed was horrible and the limited parking. Besides that our stay was great and we would definitely stay again

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here on a short visit to the beach and it was perfect. This place is so close to the water and the view is breathtaking. It could not have been better. For starters, interaction with the owner was super easy. He contacted me via email with all the details and mailed me the parking pass in plenty of time so there was no panic on that front. The location was easy to find and close to stores and restaurants. The condo itself was very clean, cozy and well maintained. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for your stay. The bed was really comfortable. There is a heated pool out front which was nice, but the bread and butter of this place is the view and proximity to the beach. It is as advertised " Million Dollar View". Watching the sunrise from the balcony was our favorite part. There was some construction going on at new condos being built next door but it wrapped up at a decent time and was no bother to us.I have already been recommending this place to friends and family. I cant see myself coming back to visit and not trying to get this exact same condo. It was perfect.

Surprising Week

  • 4 of 5

Surprised to find a new condominium tower being constructed within feet of our building. Surprised to find that once inside our unit, the noise wasn't as annoying as we would have expected...even when we ventured out on the balcony.

Surprised and disappointed to discover that the pier next to the building was "Private" and restricted to the guests of the tower to the East only. Made for some nice pictures from our balcony and while it is visible in the picture in our brochure, it is NOT available to Emerald Skye guests.

In all, we had a nice relaxing time and enjoyed the week. It is hoped that the new neighbors to the West will limit parking and landscaping locations so that exit from ES parking lot is less of a crap shoot. It can be surprisingly difficult to exit ES's lot without really needing to 'stick your neck out' in order to see Eastbound traffic. We found that exiting to the East, merging into the turning lane quickly, and turning around at the inner beach access lots a couple blocks East then entering Westbound traffic to be less time consuming and harrowing than trying to time both EB/WB traffic to get out of the lot and on our way. Accommodations, equipment, fixtures, appliances all worked as expected. We found it immaculately prepared and we tried to keep/leave it the same. We look forward to another visit soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments to the condition of my unit. I am sorry that you expected to have access to the private pier but our ad stipulates that it is "next door and private" which indicates that it is not part of this complex and no where in my ad did it say you had access to the pier. As for the construction next door, we apologize for any inconvenience but that is out of our control & will be completed soon. There is a middle turn lane used to merge into traffic so you do not have to try and get across 4 lanes of traffic in one shot. Fortunately, the new structure will not affect our beautiful view of the beach. I am very sorry you had these issues during your stay and am glad you enjoyed your visit & plan to return. Warm regards, Jason
