Gorgeous New Rental Condo with Amazing Views, Inside & Out! Our condo has recently been completely remodeled and professionally decorated (2012) and provides our guests with a remarkable standard of sophistication, luxury and leisure on the Alabama Coast of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf Shores - West Beach).

You will not believe our condo in Ocean House I. It is the ultimate in luxury and comfort…2 bedrooms/2 baths, sleeps 6, boasting 920+/- sq. feet. This unit offers tile flooring (w/ plush area rugs) and granite countertops throughout, ceiling fans in every room, new appliances, washer and dryer, wireless internet service, flat screen HDTVs (with DirectTV) and a DVD player (Blue Ray player in LR) in every room, and so much more.

Our vacation home is furnished with your comfort in mind, while still maintaining the absolute highest standard in luxury throughout…the new living room features an oversized couch (w/ queen sleeper sofa) and oversized chair, 2 rockers/gliders with ottoman, 42' HDTV, vertical blinds and unique artwork. The dining area features seating for 8-10. A beautiful solid wood table (w/ removeable leaf) easily accommodates 8 and a breakfast nook with 2 barstools is added as an addtional comfort. The kitchen features undercounter lighting, granite countertops, built-in microwave and dishwasher, stove/oven, refrigerator w/ ice maker and is fully stocked with all small appliances (inlcuding crock pot, electric griddle, hand mixer, blender, toaster coffee maker, electric can opener). Ample counter space and lots of cooking gear and kitchenware, inlcuding many unique items not often found in rental condos, makes it a pleasure to prepare meals for your entire group.

Each of the two spacious bedrooms has its own private bath. The master bedroom, overlooking the Gulf w/ balcony access via sliding glass doors, features a king size bed, 2 nightstands and a large chest of drawers. A flat screen 26' HDTV, DVD player and ceiling fan makes this room complete. The master bathroom has a separate dressing area with granite countertops, new cabinets and medicine chest.

The second bedroom features a queen size bed, large 3 drawer nightstand, a chest of drawers and a large desk w/ comfortable plush chair. A flat screen HDTV, DVD player and ceiling fan makes this room complete for your sleeping or relaxing comfort.

The large Gulf facing balcony, with access from either the living room or the master bedroom, boasts a dining table for 4, two oversized chairs and a double bench for your added pleasure and comfort. Directly overlooking both the Gulf and beach, as well as the swimming pool and gazebo area, you will enjoy gorgeous and breathtaking views at any time of the day. Dine outdoors, relax with a cup of coffee, watch the porpoises play or be mesmerized by the stunning sunsets to end your day.

All Egyptian cotton linens and beach towels are provided. A washer and dryer is also located in the unit for your added convenience.

Ocean House I is one of the most desired Condo Destinations in the Gulf Shores area. It is a low density complex (w/ only 6 units per floor) that is located directly on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, less than a mile west of Highway 59, Gulf Shores' main hub. Besides the fantastic location, guests can enjoy features like easy access to the beach (that is only steps from the elevator and pool), swimming in Gulf Shores' longest pool w/ zero entry access on both sides, or watching your kids frolic in one of the two kiddie pools. The beautifully landscaped grounds include several large grassy areas right beside the pool and beach that are perfect for outdoor games. The 2 covered gazebos provide welcome shade from the sun and/or outdoor dining on the picnic tables. Wireless internet service is also provided in this area. A BBQ area is available for all guests. Bathrooms and snack machines are located near the pool area.

The entry to the building is covered, and luggage carts are provided to conveniently unload your car. On site parking is also available. Parking Passes are purchased from on-site security upon arrival.

We hope that your stay at our condo at Ocean House will exceed all of your expectations. Come vacation with us and see for yourself!!

About Brian Fipps

My wife and I have been married for 28 years and we have travelled a good chunk of this world. We like to dive, play golf, go boating and fishing. We recently (early) retired and decided to make the Gulf Shores area and Mustique our home away from home. In fact, we enjoy the area and Mustique so much that we recently purchased a second condo in Mustique so that we and our relatives/ guests can enjoy it twice as much!! Please be sure and visit our other website and property so that you can select the unit which best meets your tastes and/or sleeping needs. Besides being a frequent visitor to the area, we love fixing up our units and maintaining the units in the utmost standard of luxury, comfort and cleanliness that our guests should expect. Since we frequently stay at each unit, this provides us with the opportunity to identify maintenance needs in advance as well as ensuring that the unit is fully stocked with every item that will fulfill our guests' experience without frequent trips to the store to purchase needed items. We also love getting to know all of our guests and are striving to have only repeat guests in the near term at each of our units, We hope you will enjoy your stay with us!!

Why Brian Fipps chose Alabama Gulf Coast

My wife and I have been going to Gulf Shores for the last couple of years and just love it. We enjoy the beach with its beautiful white sand shores and the magnificent golf courses that lay within the Gulf Shores area. The restaurants and fishing have been fabulous too. What more to ask for?

Beautiful view, beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Ocean House. The description of the condo was accurate, but seeing it showed that our highest hopes and expectations were met completely! Beautiful condo, with excellent and comfortable furniture, truly spectacular views, and plenty of beach towels provided! The walk from the beach was very short which was important to me as walking is sometimes a challenge. And the pool! The weather was quite cold as was the pool water, but it was soooo inviting we went for a swim anyway, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Pam and Brian for your hospitality, attention to detail and lovely condo. We all had a ball!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience. Pam was so easy to work with on the front end, and when we arrived the condo was perfect, and totally stocked with everything we needed. Everything was so comfortable and it felt like it was stocked for an owner not a vacation renter. The forth floor was the perfect height from the beach, and I have never spent so much time in the pool of a condo before. Any Ocean House employee that we ran in to was so pleasant and helpfull, and the whole placed seemed very well maintained. My hope is that this condo is available everytime we come down to Gulf Shores. Thanks again Pam and Brian, you have deffinitly provided a wonderful vacation condo. (It's funny, as I read the previous post it appears "Stevie S. Checked out on the day we checked in, and either the housekeeping staff are perfectionist or "Stevie S" is, because you sure couldn't tell there had been 4 children in the condo before we got there) :)

Great condo and great people to work with!

  • 5 of 5

This would be our 2nd year staying at one of the Brian and Pam's condos. We absolutely love staying at Ocean House in Gulf Shores. The condo is equipped with everything you can think of! We have 4 children, so we tend to stay a lot at the condo and cook. The kitchen has everything- silverware, baking pans, etc. On both occasions we have stayed, the condo has been in pristine condition when we arrived. The heated zero entry pool is amazing! The location of Ocean House is conveniently located right next to restaurants and shopping. Also, within walking distance is a small grocery store, that our teenage son loved to walk to and pick up snacks. The beach is beautiful and we've never had a bad experience staying here. Our favorite time of the year to go is in October. The weather is still surprisingly warm and the crowd is a little less. Can't to return again next year! Thanks, Brian and Pam.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here due to the amenities, location, and comfort. I could have asked for a better place. My roommate is disabled, so the walk in shower and zero entry pool was perfect. The kitchen was beautifully appointed, if you feel like cooking.

We did not, due to the abundance of delicious restaurants in the area. Bahama Bob's was the best. Wednesday's shrimp lunch is a must. I stayed in the wonder master quarters over looking the serene ocean.

A bike rental is a must. You can tool around town or go to one of the many bike paths. I recommend coyote crossing.

Bring a flash light, crab hunting at night is so fun. There is a net in the master closet that you can borrow.

We will be back next year!

Very nice condo and even nicer people

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the condo for the week, and we really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very nicely furnished and comfortable. It was also very clean and neat. The master bedroom was very comfortable, and you cannot beat the view! Pam was very quick to respond to any emails and very friendly. We had a last minute change of plans, and she even let us add on a night to our stay on the Saturday before our arrival. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway in Gulf Shores!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this condo for a week and had a great stay. The condo was clean and well furnished. The beds were very comfortable. The Fipps were easy to work with and helpful as this was our first time to Gulf Shores. They were also very responsive when we initially contacted them about a cable issue in the bedroom. We were able to fix the issue via the phone call, but they were ready to drive to the condo and make sure everything was working correctly. Great location too!

Map

Located on West Beach Blvd about 1 mile past Hwy 59, the 'hub' of the Gulf Shores area.

Beach front condo with breathtaking views. Very close proximity to the beach from the elevator and pool area. No long walks on never ending wood walkways to get to the Ocean House private beach area, just a mere 20 steps to the beach!
