Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bunkroom, 2 Full Baths, Convertable Sofa, Sleeps up to 6

The Lighthouse is one of the most popular locations on the beach in Gulf Shores!. Our apartment, # 702, with its floor to ceiling glass sliding doors has a spectacular view down the beach. This beautifully decorated apartment has a master bedroom with king bed, a bunk room with 2 twin size beds (suitable for kids) with flat screen and DVD player as well as a queen size convertible sofa in the main room. There are 2 full baths and full size washer and dryer. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and double vanities. The guest bath is a full bath with shower. With master bedroom, a bunk room for the kids and a convertible couch this unit sleeps up to 6.

The living room area and master bedroom both boast incredible views of the beach and access to a 26' balcony with comfortable furniture that allow you to lounge or eat as you view down Gulf Shores Beach.

This apartment's traditional furnishings make it easy for you to relax. The fully equipped kitchen has all the items needed for easy meal preparation and a breakfast bar that seats 6.

Our unit only rents Saturday to Saturday which allows us to have one of the best house keepers on the beach. Check in time is 4PM and check out time is 10AM. There is no smoking in out unit and Light House has a no pet policy for guests. Our unit is NOT ADA compliant and we have 25 years or older policy as to the legal person onsite in the party and responsible for our unit.

We use VRBO for only for advertising but have our own website listing terms and conditions as well as pricing for a given week so the prices here are approximate and my deviate by a very small amount but all pricing on our website is accurate to the penny. The calendars are synchronized so if this calendar shows open or booked it is correct as we do not hold any dates without a paid deposit.

We do offer discount coupons for first time guests for rentals inside of 3 weeks prior to arrival date so inquire if that criteria applies to you.

Thanks again for considering our unit!

About Rod Fitts - 2017

Hi, my name Rod Fitts and my wife is Kathleen. Our journey in the vacation rental business started in 2005 when we purchased Crystal Shores #1006 and Lighthouse #702 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

In 2011 we launched "Gulfshoresbeachdays" as a place is to advertise our vacation rentals and to give our guests advice they could use to increase the quality of their stay.

I invite you to visit Gulfshoresbeachdays on the web to place a reservation, get information about restaurants, attractions and to read my blog with advice on everything from how to save money in Gulf Shores to what to do on rainy days.

Gulf Shores Beach Days is also an official member of AVROA, an industry trade association dedicated to preserving the personal relationship between owner and guest. We are very excited about this and each of our properties are AVROA certified which assures you that Kathleen and I are the real owners and that our properties are being run legitimately.

Thanks for your interest!

Why Rod Fitts - 2017 chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We ended up in Gulf Shores because in Gulf Shores we can relax on a world class beach without the rest of the world being there. And, there is another reason. Gulf Shores is a family oriented community. A place where my kids and their kids can play on the beach without any distractions. In my opinion, Gulf Shores is Alabama's best kept secret.

Best on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Lighthouse and it was FANTASTIC! The location couldn't be any better. Short walk to all the hot spots. Rod was very accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this condo, and plan to return!

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Lighthouse, and Rod's condo was great! Plenty of room, comfortable mattress, stocked kitchen and welcoming décor. We really liked the lounge chair on the balcony (not to mention the VIEW!) and the high-quality window treatments. With all the comforts of home on the beautiful beach, this condo was perfect for our family. Rod makes the reservation process so easy, and I really appreciated that he checked in on us the day of our arrival. And the keyless entry is a HUGE convenience! Thank Rod and Kathy for sharing your place with us!

Awesome place right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we will definitely go back and stay at this same place! The condo was steps away from a great beach. It was very comfortable and roomy for the 5 of us and very modern and clean. The balcony has a great view of the beach and water and we did see some dolphins! It is located within walking distance to some great places to eat, shop, and even buy a few necessities at a reasonable price. Mr. Fitts was a joy to work with and provided some very helpful tips on his beach days website and blogs. Thank you for an awesome vacation with my family!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year for our family to take a "girls only" trip. We love Gulf Shores. It is so family oriented. Crystal Shores is located right on the beach and just a few feet from the gorgeous white sand, and is within walking distance to several restaurants and souvenir shops. Zoo, amusement park, water park, mini golf and other attractions are just a short drive and are highly recommended. (We especially loved the "bumper boats" at the amusement park). The condo is beautiful and by far the prettiest that we have stayed in thus far. The view from the 10th floor is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Rod was the most pleasant man to work with. Great vacation!!! Hope to be back next year.
