About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Make your vacation a time to remember by enjoying our beautiful beachfront condo. The view from the balcony is breath taking and the surprise of seeing the dolphins is long remembered. Sunsets and Sunrises are also beautiful. The Caribbean is a low density complex with only 32 units, and this allows more beach space, fewer people to share the pool, and a more intimate atmosphere in the condo.

In your home away from home, enjoy our fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer in condo. The indoor heated pool and outdoor seasonally heated pool are great for year round swimming. The unit has tile floors throughout the condo.

A king size bed in the master bedroom, with a flat screen TV/DVD player and a full bath. Bunk beds are built into the hallway and easily accommodate 2 children. There is an additional half bath off the hallway. The living area has a very comfortable queen sleeper sofa and lounge chair. A new large flat screen TV, this year....2017. The dining area accommodates a table with four chairs and an additional 2-3 bar stools for eating at the bar.

The balcony with its gorgeous view has a heavy steel/glass table and 4 chairs along with a Bisro Table and chairs. This is perfect for sharing meals or drinks at the end of a beautiful day on the beach or shopping!!

A recently installed walkway to the beach changes your 4 minute walk to 2!

Our unit provides a reserved owner covered parking space.

No pets or smoking in condo, balcony, or building.

About Peggye VanderHook

As an owner, our family has loved vacationing in Gulf Shores for many years. Our children grew up loving the Gulf Shores area and now the grandchildren share that same love of the beach. We were quite familiar with all of Lower Baldwin County, so our choice of Gulf Shores was easy; with its close proximity to beautiful beaches, restaurants, shopping, all kinds of water sports, and fishing. Plenty to keep the kids busy after they have spent all day on the beach. We have loved the small town atmosphere of Gulf Shores and the friendliness of locals as well as guests. Our visits have been at different times during the year. The beach is great in the summer and wonderful in September and October, when it becomes just a little bit lazy, and then March/April has a completely different feel. We love it any time of the year!! We want you to love it as much as we do and think you will.

Peggye VanderHook purchased this condo in 2009

Why Peggye VanderHook chose Gulf Shores

The close proximity of the Caribbean to shopping, sports activities and of course the beautiful beaches made this an easy choice. The low density complex, owner covered parking, indoor heated pool, and completely tiled unit were major reasons for our choice. The complex is far enough from the main activities that the noise level is minimal.

What makes this condo unique

This is truly our home away from home!! You will love the feeling of 'being where you should be'! The minute you walk into the condo you know this is where you will relax and unwind for the next few days.....and a few days pass very quickly!! When you leave you will have the feeling of leaving a family member! In fact you will think I think I left my shoes and if I return I can stay another day!! I promise you I have had these feelings!! That's why we finally made our dream come true. Would love to live here year round, but not possible! We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

A great week here in May.

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this condo and enjoyed it thoroughly. Peggye and John were very helpful and it was just what I wanted. They also have a 2 bedroom next door that I have stayed in and it is also a beautiful condo with a great balcony. The bed and bath were first class. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Loved The Condo

  • 5 of 5

I took my mom and two grandchildren. The condo was just what we wanted. Had everything we needed. The view was wonderful. We also had a parking spot under the complex. That kept the car protected, and was nice. Loved the indoor pool as much as the outdoor pool.

Can not wait to return

A wonderful condo for our spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time I have rented a beach condo and it was VERY nice. My 11 year old and I spent several nights in this condo and wished we had booked more nights. We had a beautiful view of the beach and I really love the location. The condo is so cute and had everything we was just perfect for us! I am already in the process of trying to book the unit this summer. I will most definitely recommend this condo to my family and friends. Thanks John and Peggye for helping make our first spring break beach trip a wonderful experience :)

Summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the same condo we had stayed in several years back. We did not know we would be staying in the same one. This condo was like a home away from home. Everything you needed the owners had it there. We loved it . Would highly recommend it to stay in.

This was our first condo rental in almost 10 years. We were so happy with the unit. Pegggye did a great job of describing the unit and the photos are a definite reflection of what you are getting. Peggye was so attentive to all my many questions. I loved how she sent me a packet with helpful hints, where to go, etc and a list of what to do when we left. We had one very small issue while we were there and it was addressed within a couple of hours. That says to me that they really want you to have the best experience you can. The condo is well appointed with just about anything you would want or need. Kitchen utensils, blender, icemaker, extra blankets etc. Lovely watching the dolphins in the morning while enjoying our coffee. Beautiful view and a great location too! Just minutes from the Hangout, surf shops, restaurants. Being right on the beach was great! Those that wanted to hang on the beach could and the others could come and go as they pleased to the pool or just hang out and watch tv. I would definitely recommend this unit. Thanks for opening your condo to my family and I. Hopefully we can come back soon!
