Beachfront condo w/ wrap-around balcony, shared pool & Gulf views!

Cute and beachy, this condo is ready to greet you after a long day of traveling. Step inside the foyer and say ah-h-h when you're drawn to the walls of windows bringing in the sunlight and Gulf views. Discover the enchantment of sun, sand, and soothing surf when you step out on the wrap-around balcony of this third-floor, Gulf-front condo. You'll enjoy breathtaking views from every room in this three-bedroom, two-bath escape. Relax and let the Gulf breezes encourage you to embrace "island time" for a few days!

The wrap-around balcony is perfect for relaxing with your morning coffee, watching dolphins and coastal birds, and listening to Gulf waves lap against the white sand beach. Everyone is drawn to magnificent sunrises and sunsets from the balcony and the beach. There is a deck box full of beach chairs and toys to take to the beach. There are also rental loungers and umbrellas available on the beach from March to October. Gulf Village condominiums not only have the beach right outside; they enjoy a private fishing pier on Little Lagoon across the road behind the cottages. Day's Beachfront Dream is on the third level, with the elevator within 15 feet. There are two pools, with one just below the condo. Grills are poolside and parking is underneath the building, with carts to transport your luggage to the condo! Bring only what you need; there is a washer/dryer in the kitchen.

Most folks have a light breakfast and rush out to the sunshine, sand, and surf. They may take a cooler with drinks and snacks to the beach or come up for a sandwich for lunch. By 5 pm, you may be ready for a shower and dinner at one of the wonderful seafood restaurants nearby. Or, you could put something in the crockpot or prepare a shrimp boil at the condo. The kitchen is fully equipped for food preparation and service. Wine glasses are above the sink, the dining table seats six, and there are two bar chairs. If you've brought the kids, grab the flashlights and head back to the beach around 8 pm to search for sand crabs on the moonlit sand. Delightful memories will bring smiles for decades to come.

For entertainment, there is a large TV and media player in the living room. There are also cards, board games, and puzzles for fun family time. Each bedroom has a mounted TV and a Blu-ray player. Satellite TV and free WiFi are available throughout the condo. Paperback books for beach reading are in both bedside tables in the queen room. Bring your Fire Stick or Roku if movies are your favorite way to relax after a day on the beach. The couch becomes a comfy sleeper sofa if needed.

All bedrooms have breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Separated from the others, the master bedroom has a king-size bed and the en suite bathroom has a walk-in shower. To the left of the entry, you'll find that the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third has twin beds. A second bathroom with a full tub/shower combination is across from the guest bedrooms.

The property is 1.3 miles away from The Hangout on West Beach. Wonderful seafood restaurants are nearby, and the Tanger Outlets are a few miles up Highway 59 in Foley. Just a couple of blocks up West Beach Boulevard, there's the Beach House Kitchen for dining out as well as S&S Seafood, which will fry, blacken, or steam seafood for you to bring back to the condo. Janino's Pizza is just across the street for easy take-out. Billy's Seafood, located on County Road 10 on Bon Secour River, is great for purchasing fresh shrimp, and preparation instructions are even given upon purchase. Rouse's Grocery is prevalent along the Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Orange Beach, and we have one a couple of miles away on Highway 59 in Gulf Shores! You can find wonderful seafood and Louisiana specialties there!

Can't say enough nice things ! Perfect Location, comfortable, great kitchen and the Balcony was EVERYTHING!
Mary M. Sep 2019
The views were great from every room. We loved the sunsets and watching the dolphins chase schools of fish. Beds were comfortable, air conditioner was much appreciated in the heat, kitchen well stocked for the cooking we did. Great quiet location (off-season is the perfect time here) and the parking underneath the building was appreciated. Easy access to the condo due to proximity to elevator. Plenty of seating in den and for dining. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. Appreciate that Vacasa doesn't have so many add-on fees that can really drive up the price.

Loved the home! All the extras (games and books) was a nice added touch. The view was amazing! Short walk to the Beach and all entertainment was less than a 15 minute drive. We will definitely be back Summer of 2020

The views are awesome! Great location! Pool was nice and cool!
Barbara S. Aug 2019
The view, the sounds of the gulf, watching the dolphins swim by, all contribute to relaxation. Walking straight out to the beach is what we were looking for. The pool was an added plus.
The kids loved going over to the lagoon to fish each evening.
Would love to come back. And soon!!

I seriously don't want to put this review out so we can keep this gem all to ourselves. Our family has been having family reunions on the gulf for over 40 years. This condo by far was our favorite. You actually feel like you are on the beach from the living room, ceiling to floor sliders on two sides, beach view galore. Wrap around incredible deck with high top chairs. Third floor is AMAZING!!!! So much light and the unit is precious. You will want for nothing, everything is here. Beach chairs, floats, fully loaded kitchen. We were so sad to leave our little slice of paradise.

The condo was beautifully decorated and has Gulf front views. The owners have thought of everything! There are beach toys and even books and games to entertain while indoors.
