Loved our weekend here!    Oct 25, 2019

My friends and I had a great time on our girls weekend at 601a Happiness! The condo was so cozy and we loved the spacious balcony. The location was perfect as it was close to the grocery store and a quick drive to Flora Bama. The beach was not crowded at all. 601a Happiness gave us the best spot for a fun and relaxing girls weekend, and we're all ready to go back!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks for sharing your pic with us! Love to see smiles in the sand...hope you ladies come visit us again soon.

Rhonda Ingram

Wonderful Condo    Oct 05, 2019

We loved everything about this condo. Many hours were spent on the large balcony. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked. Thank you!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you Rhonda! We think the balcony is like it's own little resort. :D

Joan Jocks

Beautiful Condo!    Sep 15, 2019

We loved our time in this condo! It is beautifully kept and very comfortable! Planning was a breeze.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you Joan! Happy to hear ~

Michelle Leverenz

#Blessed-our sanctuary    Sep 08, 2019

We ABSOLUTELY LOVED this condo. It was perfect for our family downtime! Stephanie was wonderful and everything was smooth. Condo was spotless and stocked with everything imaginable! We loved the beachy decor and layout of condo. The VIEWS are priceless. We could take in the ocean views from the kitchen (I'd cook and clean anytime if I always had this view), dining room, living room and master bedroom. Just BEAUTIFUL! You could also see if from the other 2 bedrooms however that was for sleeping. We spent day and night on the huge balcony just having quality family time. The pool was great as well. Elevator was quick. Close to shopping & dining . I don't think we ever went over 1 - 2 miles from the condo. Loved the area. We are already looking at our calendars to return next year. This was the BEST, MOST RELAXING family vacation we have ever had. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us.

Stephanie Mann's reply: happy to read how much you enjoyed your stay! You are too kind Michelle! Please come back and stay with us soon!


We found Happiness at Happiness 601!    Aug 03, 2019

We LOVED every minute of our stay at Happiness. We are a large family of 8 and had plenty of room. We spent a lot of time on the balcony watching the waves and dolphins. The ice machine was awesome. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked all of our meals there. Beach access was easy! We will definitely being staying here again. Stephanie was so easy to work with and the cleaning lady did an awesome job!!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you Deborah! We loved hosting your family and glad you found Happiness! We love Nancy too and will pass along your kind words.


Great Family Vacation In Orange Beach    Jul 27, 2019

We stayed at this condo for the first time ever and were not disappointed. It's well maintained and furnished and is stocked with everything that you need to basically live here as though it's your home. We have a family of 5, and I'd say that the condo is perfect for a group that size. Multiple families using a condo together with five or more people might find it a little bit cramped unless all the kids are able to sleep in one bedroom, and even then, the adults would have to share a bathroom either with the other adults or the kids. The wrap around deck is a great size and has rocking chairs and a table to relax at. Beach access is very easy, as is access to the pool, which is a nice sized pool for what it's worth. There is little to no crowding to the east of the building, so there was a lot of beach space for people willing to walk a tiny bit farther. There was construction going on at the building next door, and several owners of that building own dogs who park at all hours of the day and night until they're let in from the balcony, but that wouldn't deter us from going back. The owner is very attentive to her guests and responds quickly to questions or concerns. She was one of the best owners we've ever dealt with, and we've stayed at probably a dozen different condos over the years. Highly recommend.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks Don! Appreciate you sharing your experience....potential guests love to hear from other guests. And fun fact...that condo with the pups belongs to Sandra Bullock! Her caretaker must have brought her dogs. I hope you and your peeps visit us again. :D

Stacey H.

Absolutely fabulous!!!    Jul 13, 2019

This was exactly what we were looking for!! Beautiful views, very clean, everything that you need is there, including a wonderful ice machine!! The kids loved having bunk beds and the king bed...sooo comfy!! Thank you, Stephanie for our vacation filled with happiness!!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you Stacey and full disclosure....this poor guest had to endure a dead thermostat for almost two days until we figured out why the AC was not cooling! I'm blessed with the compassionate & understanding guests! We do hope you come stay with us again!

Colleen Francis

Awesome Vacatioin    Jun 08, 2019

The Condo had anything and everything you would need and then some. comfortable seating indoors and out. Brenda does an amazing job with cleaning. the ice machine is a bonus for sure. My husband said if we ever go back we will surely book with you again.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks Colleen and we appreciate you taking great care of our place as well. No doubt Brenda is my saving grace! So glad you found Happiness!

Nicole Vidrine

The Perfect Home Away from Home!    May 25, 2019

Summer House #601A was the perfect home away from home! There wasn't an amenity that was overlooked. The condo was cleaned to perfection and was so accommodating. This corner unit overlooked the white sandy beaches. Each room had its own entry to the balcony with a beach view. We absolutely loved and enjoyed our stay.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks for the love Nicole! Hope you come find some more Happiness soon! I'll send your kind words along to Brenda ~ she is the reason it is spotless and ready to be enjoyed. :D

Donna Jones

Every little thing....PERFECT    May 18, 2019

We returned home Saturday from an AMAZING relaxing, serene 7 days . Absolutely hated to pull out of the parking lot. Brought four very tired college grads with me. We spent the majority of our time right there in the condo or on the sand. LOVED the condo so much , I asked Stephanie to just sell it to us...She, of course...laughed. Enjoyed every transaction with her and feel like I have a new friend. DEFINITELY want to return. SOON!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

OMG Donna!! Happy to call you a friend. Yes your bunch needs to return....getting updated cable and a huge smart TV installed end of June. Thanks for taking sure great care of our place. You are welcomed anytime. Booking fall now wink-wink ;)

Jana H

TOP NOTCH!!!    Apr 04, 2019

What an experience this place is....the views are absolutely stunning off the wrap around balcony! The owner for sure thinks about everything for their guest - great amenities! You are just steps to the beach! Location of this condo is awesome...its near dining, grocery and shopping!!! Be sure to book quickly cause they book up fast!

Bob Montgomery

Perfect!    Mar 30, 2019

The condo was very well appointed. They pretty much have everything you have at home! The balcony view was wonderful! Very close to restaurants and shopping. We will rent from Stephanie again, thanks!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Hope you had a safe trip back home Bob! Thanks a bunch!

Rich and Nancy

Annual trip South    Jan 01, 2019

Our stay at Summer House 601a was wonderful. We love the balcony and the view looking all the way down the beach. The 6th floor is just high enough to see all the action on the beach and just high enough to be above all the noise. We will be back again.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Hi Rich & Nancy, Happy you're returning next year! Stay warm for now....

Cathy K

Picture Perfect!    Sep 23, 2018

What a wonderful condo in Orange Beach!!!! If you rent one I soooooo would recommend this one!! Hope everyone enjoyed all my beach pics on FB.

Jeanne Davidson

Crowley girls weekend    Sep 21, 2018

We spent 3 glorious days and nights at this beautiful place. I’ve been to several beachfront properties, this rivals (or takes) first place. The balcony is just divine. 6th floor corner views mean you can still people watch, dolphin watch and get fantastic breezes - but aren’t bothered at all by foot traffic. Big comfy furniture and the high top was perfect for sipping wine or martinis. The condo is VERY nicely equipped and furnished. Falling asleep and waking to the sound of ocean waves was heaven. We were three, and while the condo holds more (and we hoped more could make it), don’t discount the advantage of private bedrooms for everyone. Highly highly recommend

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Girls weekends are the best!!! Hope you get to return and relive some more high school days.


Best balcony ever!    Sep 13, 2018

Your giant wrap around balcony is THE best I've ever enjoyed. Seeing 180 degrees of unobstructed beach is almost impossible to find. And, the beach is never crowded - thanks to the very small properties next door. I LOVE your place!

Sue Pagett

Great Get Away    Sep 05, 2018

We had a wonderful get away! The condo is gorgeous and the view is breathtaking! Will definetly stay here again and recommend it to others

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you and we're happy you still came after the Tropical Storm gave us a scare. Loved your "rain or shine" beach attitude!

Karen H

Perfect vacation spot!    Aug 29, 2018

Checks off all the vacation boxes! Comfortable,well equipped condo with the best balcony ever! Location is convenient to restaurants,groceries and shopping. Can’t wait to come back to this relaxing, happy place.

Elisabeth Arnold

AWESOME PLACE    Jul 28, 2018

Definitely recommend 601 Happiness! Stephanie has thought of absolutely everything -- they truly allow you to enjoy their home. The unit is beautifully and comfortably decorated. The balcony views are amazing --- I loved sitting with my glass of wine in the afternoons watching the sunset. Just perfect. Thank you!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thank you for the recommendation Elisabeth! We do try to make you feel like family....hope you visit us again! That balcony will be calling your name ~


Thanks for the memories~    Jun 16, 2018

I just wanted to say Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with my family. We had a great time. The condo was beautiful and very well cared for. The kids were comfortable in the beds and so were we. We spent lots of time on the balcony enjoying the breeze and view when we weren’t at the beach. We even had music on Saturday night and on our last day, the kids got to see dolphins swimming close by. Thanks so much for this chance to bring my kids back to the beach! They can’t wait to do it again.

Stephanie Mann's reply:

You were treated by some fellow owners who like to play for folks while they're there! I hope to be that lucky one trip. Come back and're not that far!


Wonderful Family Vacation    Jun 02, 2018

Our stay at Summer House was absolutely perfect for our family of 5 plus Grandma. The kids loved the bunk beds, we had plenty of space, the kitchen had everything you could ever need, and the best....the view!!! That deck was the perfect way to relax ANY time of the day. Condo was across the street from all the stores you would need. One even had Pick Up/Order Ahead. The pools were wonderful and the beaches were clean/safe. We will come back!!!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks! I need to give my guests the Wal-Mart pick up ahead phone #.....great idea!!! Happy to hear you made some memories! Hope you visit us again.


We will definitely stay here again~    May 25, 2018

This condo is absolutely beautiful. It’s very clean and everything updated. The beds are comfy, the kitchen well stocked, the balcony is huge with great views, and the property is also really nice. The owners have been so great and helpful!


Life is good!    May 21, 2018

Your condo is great on so many levels! To begin with, its location is ideal - easy access from the expressway and convenient shopping and dining options nearby. The unit itself could not be any nicer and the views are ideal. Even the security on site was impressive with their friendliness and professionalism. I hope to come back!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks Dan! Sounds like you made the most of your time and found some Happiness. Hope you come visit us again!


Amazing View!    May 13, 2018

We had a wonderful time at the condo. The view from the balcony is amazing. We couldn't believe how big the balcony was - It wrapped around the side of the condo. You could actually access it from every room. We loved it. We really appreciate all the extras you provide also. And I have to say that the Master bedroom mattress was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks for the kind words and we are loving that balcony as well....hope you visit us again!

The Bolton’s

Can’t wait to go back!    Apr 13, 2018

After a long day of enjoying the relaxing beach, we looked forward to heading upstairs to relax in the condo. Beautiful, updated decor and breathtaking views. I loved that you could open the door and listen to the ocean waves in EVERY room! The condo is equipped with anything you could possibly need and if it’s not there, the location is so convenient that shops, markets, and more are just minuets away. We can’t wait to go back!

Stephanie Mann's reply:

Thanks for giving us such great review! We try to make it worth returning to and hope you do soon!

Doug & Beth

Happiness Found    Mar 24, 2018

Arrived to a beautifully appointed beach condo. Great views, well equipped kitchen, beautiful bathrooms. The master bedroom bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. That says a lot since I traveled for 20 years and stayed at many nice hotels and resorts. The girls and grandmother relaxed and caught up on sleep and reading. It was great to walk onto the beach from the large outdoor pool. We plan on going again.
