We take great pride in our condo, especially it's cleanliness.  We are fortunate we can visit it often to check on it and make sure all your needs will be met.  Details make the difference.
You will enjoy the Lighthouse in gereral.  One of the newest condos in Gulf Shores, it has many amenities that you will love. Twin pools outdoors make the decision very difficult each day. Do we go to the beach or stay at the pools?  The kids will love the zero entry pool that is just inches deep at the shallow end and gradually gets deeper at the other.  The bubbler fountains that shoot water high into the air just fascinate the little ones. Then there is the deep pool for serious swimming.  There are two heated hot tubs, one at either end of the twin pools.  On top of all that there is the indoor heated pool for days that are a bit chilly or rainy.  You won't miss a day of swimmimg no matter what the weather.
There is an indoor fitness center and spa for your health and pleasure.
There are three levels of parking for your convenience.  Two are under cover to protect you from the elements.  All are convenient to the four elevators on site.
From our custom draperies and cornices, to the quality of our mattresses.  From our custom build bunk beds to the quality of our furnishings.  Most of our floors are tile.  Only our two bedrooms have carpet. Most of the ceilings are 9 foot and there are ceiling fans in every room.
I'll give you a quick tour of our condo and hope you will like what you read and what you see in our photos.
From the minute you walk into the front door you are drawn to the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico straight in front of you.  With floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors you walk there immediately to look out.  When you are standing there you notice the size of the balcony.  This is no little balcony.  It stretches the full width of the condo and extends in front of the master bedroom as well as the living room.  There are table's and chairs, including two chaise lounge chairs, to watch the sun rises or sunsets.  Take your pick-Coffee or cocktails!  Both views are spectacular!  Penthouse views without the penthouse price.
As you walk in, there is a bunk room right off the foyer area with two full size twin beds,  The kids will have their own room with a door for privacy and their own T.V. to watch.
The foyer is a gererous size, with room for a table  where you can place your keys and your purse when you come in.  There is plenty of room for the rolling cart you will bring up from the lobby as you move in and out or bring in groceries and supplies.
There is also a large laundry room off the foyer with a front loading washer and dryer.  There is enough room to store the beach toys and rafts.  We supply an ironing board and iron for your convenience.
The Kitchen which is next on your right is well stocked with plenty of dishes, cookware, glasses,utensils, crock pot, griddle blender, toaster, mixer and more.
There is a beautiful dining table with four chairs and three more stools for dining at the kitchen counter.
The decor is beachy with bright colors.  Professionally decorated to make everyone smile.
The living area is generous, with a queen sofa bed and comfortable chairs.  There are lamps for snuggling into your chair to read.  There is a Blu-Ray DVD for the flat screen TV for added viewing pleasure. Each bedroom also has a flat screen TV with a DVD player.  
The Master bedroom is Luxurious with it's king-size bed, custom bedding and matching draperies.  It connects to the dressing room in the large master bath with jacuzzi tub and seperate shower stall.The dressing room has double sinks and plenty of drawer and counter space.  There is also a large walk-in closet.
The guest room also has a King bed and again custom bedding with matching draperies.  The guest bath opens to the guest room and also the hallway.  There is a tub/shower comination with a colorful shower curtain that again is custom made.
The Lighthouse is on the property where the old Lighthouse Motel once stood.  Many of you will remember seeing this in years gone by.  It's literaly a few steps away from The Sea-N-Suds; a traditional seafood restaurant where you wait or dine 'over the beach'.  You and the kids will want to see the all-new Hangout restaurant.  This is another memory from the past that has been brought back.  Oh what fun!!  Go north on Highway 59 and you will find Lulu's, owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister, Lucy Buffett.  Jimmy himself shows up from tome to time.
Located about twenty minutes away there is a new amusement park, OWA is it's name and it just opened in 2017. It is located in the town of Foley, Alabama. There are dazzling rides that will have everyone entertained for hours. With attractions for guests of all ages.
We are also located just a few miles away from Supermarkets, The Warf shopping center, movies,Wal-Mart and Target.
As you can see, staying at our condo at the LIghthouse in Gulf Shores will bring smiles, laughter and ever lasting memories.

Delightful condo    Dec 23, 2017

My family arrived to find the place clean, fresh and totally beyond our expectations.  The cheery colors and comfortable furniture made us feel right at home.  Owners were attentive and welcoming.  It was obious that they took pride in their property, keeping it very clean with a complete kitchen.  My family was holding a family holiday at Gulf Shores so we were able to see three other larger units.  Ours was definitely the cutest with the most amenities.  I would recommend it with no reservation.

Loved our Stay    Sep 23, 2017

The place is really cute, super clean and comes with a great unobstructed view of the beach 16 floors up.  The owners are really nice and genuinely strive to make sure your stay is the best it can be,  Added pluses: sand toys and beach towels.  We hope to return.

Best Vacation Site for a Great Rate!    Sep 16, 2017

The condo is so cute!  We loved the beach theme and the convenience of being right at the water's edge.  Kitchen is fully stocked with paper towels, soaps,a few spices and oil, things we didn't have to buy at the grocery store.  Ther were even some beach toys like boogie boards and noodles and extra beach towels.  Donna and Randy called to make sure everything was to our liking and it certainly was!  The king beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets.  Rugs and mats were conveniently placed to catch the little bit of sand that came back with us from the beach.  The balcony was a favorite hangout,no pun intended!  Everything was clean and pretty!  The condo staff was friendly and helpful.  Good restaurants are close by-- you must go to LuLu's ( Jimmy Buffet's sister) for great seafood and a fun atmosphere.  We did the wild Hearts catamaran sunset cruise and it was great!  We will gladly recommend this condo to our friends!

Beautifully Decorated Condo on Beach    Jun 24, 2017

This was our first time to the Gulf Shores area and we couldn't have been more happy with renting this beautiful condo owned by Randy & Donna.  From the first communication to the last, they were absolutely wonderful.  Donna gave us tips on restaurants in the area in which we loved and other things to do.Everthing ran smoothly from arriving to departing.  Their condo was immaculate.  It had everything you would ever need and plenty of space.  I especially love how it was decorated and everything color coordinated.  they went beyond expectations of a vacation condo.  The view was beautiful from the balcony.  The condo was within walking distance of many things to do and short distance to other fun activities via car.  Loved the convenience of having a parking garage to park into.  Parking attendant was very courteous.  Fun activities we did while there was Evening Dolphin Cruise from Caribe Resort Marina, Parasailing, Segway Tour in Gulf Shores Park, Gulf Coast Zoo,Pirates Island Adventure Golf, Alligator Alley and the Factory Jumping Park and ate at many restaurants that were very excellent including Lambert's Cafe, LuLu's, Catus Cantina Mexican Grill and Rotolos Pizzeria.  We had agreat family vacation thanks to Randy and Donna and look foeward to going back soon.
