This was an amazing place to stay to get away to the beach for a few days. Easy access to a nice beach and close to shops.

Fam of 4 with two young children. We enjoyed our spring break in Orange Beach! Tidewater is in a great location and #506 met our needs. That said, we did think this place was a little rough around the edges. 2.75 starts / B- overall. Here are a few things to note and areas where the property could improve going forward:
-No spatula, coffee filters, spices in the kitchen
-Clothes dryer would not run unless we slammed the door shut. Opening the door, the dryer would continue to run. Very inefficient having to run on high for two hours to dry a load of towels
-Paper thin T.P.
-Cheap feeling, itchy sheets (like $49 motel cheap)
-No sleeping pillow for the pullout bed
-Master bed is a double / full size - Queen would be ideal for two adults
-Bunk bed mattresses need to be replaced. They are very worn out
-Sliding door is unreasonably difficult to slide
-Cracking, peeling paint throughout the unit
-Refrigerator would over-condensate once we placed groceries in it and leaked a large puddle onto the floor even when notching it down to a lower temp setting. Rust spots forming on the front of the refrigerator.

For the price, we would probably consider other units but would stay here again if others unavailable.

Hope this helps prospective renters as well as owners to make a more enjoyable experience for their renters!

Manager response:
Hi, Andrew! Thank you for telling us about your Tidewater experience. The refrigerator line was backed up and has been fixed, the sliding glass door has been serviced, and pillows are provided for the sleeper sofa. We were unable to discover any issues with the dryer or paint. We appreciate you staying with us!

We loved practically everything about our condo!! The view was great, nice and clean! Only down fall are the mattress very thin and uncomfortable. Other than that everything was great!

My husband and I rented this condo for a couple of days, 2 months after Hurricane Sally. It is a 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, a bunk bed in the hallway, and a sleeper sofa in the living room. It is perfect for a family getaway. The kitchen was well equipped with a coffee maker, dishwasher, refrigerator, dishes, etc. The balcony overlooks the pool and faces the Gulf. It is an absolutely beautiful view! Because of Sally, we weren't able to access the hot tub and gym but, they called us ahead of time to let us know. Construction workers were there working but, they weren't very noisy. We very much enjoyed our stay and hated to leave. We will definitely come back!

Highly recommend ! Very clean and nice! Close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants
Rena M. Aug 2020
There was everything there for an easy vacation. There were even beach chairs under the bunk beds. This is not the case in other condos we have rented and was a nice find.

Wonderful view
Dallas R. Jul 2020
We have stayed in this unit for the past 4 summers, and have already booked for next summer. We, being me, my wife, and my two sons...currently 11 and 5. We love it, but there are a couple tweaks that we would like to see. If the bedroom were rearranged to a mirror image...by moving the bed to the other wall, it seems like it would really open the space up. The TV stand in the living room seems like it could be updated to a functional “buffet” style dresser and could serve as clothing storage, since the unit can sleep 5-6 people. Other than that, it’s exactly the place we need.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Dallas. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our home. We will certainly keep your comments in mind when planning updates for the home. Thank you for bringing them to our attention. We hope to host you again soon!

Easy access to the beach!

Great location, price and availability.
r david f. May 2020
Awesome unit with view of water. Listened to the waves at night. Property next door is under construction and the property past that is closed for remodel so there are about 400 yards of empty beach.
Barry L. Mar 2020
Tidewater has a great location toward the eastern end of the island which means less beach traffic. Great views with few things to get in the way. Condo was clean and comfortable!
Barry L. Mar 2020
Great location and facilities.
Joey H. Dec 2019
This condo was very nice and clean. The whole facility was clean and well kept.

Your confirmation email might say that you do not need parking passes. This is false. We receive a warning on our windshield from the facility security people. There will be a parking pass in your room. Use it. The facility security personnel are very active. Maybe a little overzealous, but they do a good job.

You can’t go wrong with this condo. 5 stars all the way.
Robert B. Dec 2019
Everything was very clean and I had no problems accessing the property nor my unit .
Allen G. Aug 2019
We have stayed at The Tidewater several times over the last few years and love it
Terri B. Jul 2019
I don’t feel the unit was properly cleaned before we arrived. The sliding glass door handle came off shortly after we arrived.
Hope M. Jun 2019

Nice, clean unit. Bed comfy and we were supplied with plenty of towels, etc.
Nicole P. Jun 2018
Only negatives were no closets to put things for 5 people and wish we would've known about the loud construction next door.
