Top-floor condo with breathtaking views, beach access, shared pools & hot tub

Want to stay on the top floor with great amenities and breathtaking gulf views? This Crystal Towers condo has just what you're looking for in a Gulf Shores vacation rental, with amazing views, shared pools, and gorgeous beaches.

Located on the 20th floor, this condo has spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico and the lagoon. Located across the street from the gulf, there is still a direct gulf view as there is an air-conditioned walkway over the road - no need to worry about traffic. The gulf-side has pools and a gated entrance to the white, sandy beaches of Gulf Shores. Between both sides, you'll have three pools, hot tubs, and a fitness center.

This condo has a king-size bed in the master and a queen-size bed in the second bedroom. Both bedrooms have flat-screen television, and there's free WiFi throughout. The sofa pulls out into a bed, so the condo sleeps up to six people. The living and dining area is spacious and the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, and utensils for all your dining and cooking needs.

This is soon to be your Gulf Shores vacation of choice - whether you're planning a weekend, week, month, or longer! Please contact Vacasa for our special Snowbird rates!

We rented this unit for our anniversary. It was well appointed, clean, check in was easy and efficient. Unit came with a much appreciated kurig and the basics for a functional kitchen. The views were breathtaking from both rooms. From the balcony you can see and hear the waves. But the best surprise was you get a front seat view of BOTH the sunrise and sunset on the balcony. Absolutely everything we ate in the area was amazing and everyone we spoke to was very pleasant and helpful. We are already talking about when we can come back and enjoy this wonderful place again.

The views, everything about it.
Very nice room, just right for our needs.

The view was just overwhelming

Nothing extravagant but it was pretty good. The king bed has a queen size comforter which didn’t work out well and no blanket for the sofa bed only a sheet. Other than that, would stay again.
Manager response:
We're glad you stayed with us and apologize the bedding wasn't properly prepared for you. This information has been passed on to housekeeping. Thank you!

The living, dining and kitchen area were very nice. The master and guest beds were comfortable, but the sheets did not fit and came off the mattress every night. When we arrived, the TV remotes were all in the living room with a pile of batteries, none of which worked. There was not a remote for the living room TV. There are no blankets at all in the unit and only 6-8 hangers. Housekeeping was lacking; when we arrived, there was something spilled in the dishwasher causing a foul odor throughout. We found a cup with dried milk under the guest bed and gummi bears and socks under the master bed. There were 2 dirty towels in the washer and the dryer did not work the entire week. The repair man came and said a part needed to be ordered. I e-mailed the host several days before our visit to ask questions and still have not received a reply. I also called on our first day to report the problems. Linda took a report and said someone would contact us, but we never received a reply. We visit Gulf Shores every year and have stayed at Crystal Tower several times. It is a beautiful resort with wonderful views, but this unit was a disappointment.
Manager response:

The condo was extremely clean and inviting. We also had plenty of linens and toiletries. The view was also amazing!
Casandra N. Jul 2021
I had 2 issues with our stay. First, there is only 3 elevators. Loading/unloading your car or going to the beach, be patient…. The elevators will be full and you have to wait a bit. We were on the highway floor, level 20. The view was breath taking tho!

Second, the Keurig machine didn’t work! Mama needs her coffee! Once you put the pod in, it punches a hole at the top, but not the bottom! So only water was coming thru. Please get that fixed! Thankfully, they coffee pot worked.

Overall, we had an amazing stay! The view, the pools! We were so relaxed! I hope to be back soon!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Casandra! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have since replaced that part in the Keurig and the coffee maker is functioning normally again. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Roof construction was going on the entire time. Couldn’t even sleep on vacation. It was horrible. Elevator was slow and took a hour to get to us. We rode it for like 30 mins because it would never go to the 20th floor. It would always stop at the 19th. Room was great and view was good. Great location, but these issues needs to be address spending that kind of money on a condo

The view
David P. Apr 2021
I enjoyed my stay here! The views were great. You might even see dolphins near the beach from this vantage point like I did several times. It’s a great place and nice area. I’d stay here again for sure.
Heather L. Mar 2021
The main thing to keep this place from getting a 5 star was the fact we never got the access code to get into our condo. We arrived after 5 and we’re on hold for at least 30 minutes trying to be able to get a code to get in since received all emails except the one with codes for entry! Did talk to a nice lady who did help get us in and said put a ticket in, but never heard from anyone again. Little things like remote batteries dead, kueirg not working kinda hampered but typical to have some little things go wrong.
Manager response:
We appreciate your review, Heather, and do apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with accessing your rental. The batteries in the remotes have been changed, the tripped outlet the Keurig was using has been reset, and we are available to help with these things if guests call to let us know. Thank you!
Wendy B. Sep 2020
The place was clean but needs a few things to be fixed. The bed in master bedroom is so hard. Mattress needs to be replaced. There are no curtain so expect an early wake up call when the sun rises. All remote controls need batteries to be changed. Also, owner needs to invest on key code pad for the door. I was so afraid to lose the keys when we went to the beach. We had a good time.
Manager response:
Hi Wendy, thanks for your review! We're glad that you were able to enjoy a clean and comfortable stay at our home! We apologize for the issues you experienced with us; our housekeeping team was in the process of deep cleaning the drapes and they were not dry in time for your stay - they have since been rehung for future guests. The mattresses are in great condition and are not due for replacement; we're very sorry if their firmness did not meet your expectations of comfort. We appreciate your feedback about changing to an elock key pad - we've added one for our guests to use and have replaced the batteries in our remotes. We hope to host you again, soon!

The location was clean and had all the amenities needed for a great stay!!!
Kelli L. Jun 2019
We stayed at this beautiful condo with our 4-year-old and 10-month-old, and loved it! It was so neat to be on the very top floor (extra fun elevator rides for the kiddo), and the air conditioned walkway across the street made getting to the beach a breeze. There were three pools to choose from (2 outdoor, 1 indoor), and a nice boardwalk out to the beach. Parking was plentiful, elevators were quick, and the condo was clean. The beds were comfortable, coffee maker was excellent, and the views from the top were stellar. We had a blast and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place to stay on the beach. Beach access, 2 outdoor pools, 2 hot tub, and an indoor pool. The view from 20th floor is amazing, all you see is water no other hotels.
