We loved the location and convenience of this condo. The keypad on the door really spoiled us - we never want to stay at a condo that uses keys again. For the middle of summer, we enjoyed three days that were humidity free and didn't see a drop of rain during the entire 7 days. There was plenty of room for our family of eight although we did have a couple of issues. The handle to the shower in the master bathroom fell off the first day and maintenance had to come to turn the water off. It wasn't fixed until the next day so that meant eight people used one shower Monday morning. The owner sent the cleaning person back to the condo at my request because the floors had not been mopped. My husband cleaned the filter on the air conditioner because it was making a high pitched squealing sound and that seemed to help. The screen was off the sliding patio door and maintenance came on Monday to fix that. We also replaced the shower curtain liners in both bathrooms because black mold was visible and replaced three light bulbs in the bedroom and living room lamps. I'm going to chalk this up to it being the busiest part of summer but it was a little disappointing to have to take care of these housekeeping issues when we got there. The owner did respond very promptly to my email and phone call to him. Maybe they need a new housekeeping service. The carpets could really use a deep cleaning. Finally, the silverware is extremely depleted. Our family of eight was constantly having to wash what was there after every meal just to have enough for the next meal. We finally gave up and just purchased plastic cutlery to use. That being said, we did enjoy our vacation and the wide beach in front of this condo and spectacular view.
From the moment we walked into the condo we were completely blown away by the amazing views from the double entry balcony to the luxurious accommodations inside! I never had that homesick feeling you get on vacation when you just can't wait to get back to everyday life... the condo is so peaceful and serine. It was so spacious and at the same time so warm and cozy, with the beautiful earth tones that blended so easily with its classic beach side dwelling feeling. We very comfortably fit 7 people in the condo and never once felt as though we were impeding on each other's space. I can't wait to come back to Orange Beach and this beautiful condo to sip my morning coffee on the balcony and scanning the ocean and white sand filled horizon for the ever present pods of dolphins! This condo definitely deserves a 10/10!!!
