Gorgeous Rental Condo with Amazing Views, Inside & Out! Our condo was completely remodeled and professionally decorated (2012) and just completely refreshed 12/17 with fresh paint throughout, new linens, area carpets, comforters and lots of new kitchenware. We strive to provide 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 990+/- 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 DISH Network) 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 Bernhardt couch (w/ queen sleeper sofa) and oversized Bernhardt 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, DISH Network 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, DISH Network 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 Gulf Shores

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?

We arrived at the rental property right after Hurricane Nate had struck and the building and grounds ha,d already been cleaned. The owner of the property was very understanding regarding my concern of arriving at the Condo before the hurricane was suppose to make landfall on early Sunday morning. My original dates were from Saturday to Friday, but luckily no one had rented the condo the following Saturday, so the owner let me change my dates from Sunday afternoon to Saturday morning with no extra charge. I had my two daughters, one who was 4 months pregnant, and my 3 granddaughters. so this was a huge relief to me not worrying about any dangers from the hurricane. I would definitely recommend the owners and also the unit. The unit was very clean and well maintained as well as the building and grounds. We were very pleased! We hope to stay here again!

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!
