Great place, balcony, pool and beach access
Angela M. Jun 2022
We enjoyed our stay. The balcony was big and had a beautiful view of the beach/ocean. My children enjoyed swimming in the outdoor and indoor pools. The condo was clean and had everything we needed.

The place was great..they were 6 of us that stayed and we had plenty of room. The view was wonderful and the beach was just a short walk around the pool and easy accessible… would definitely stay here again

The place was beautiful an clean. I would definitely be visiting again. Thanks to the host an for welcoming my family ,we had a lovely time.

The place was clean and was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans and utensils.

Problems:
- the right elevator kept getting stuck and was not functioning
- the indoor pool and fitness area were not available, and we were not told this was the case before we rented, when we were reminded of our stay or with our check-in instructions.
- the bathroom shower rod came off the wall (it was sticky taped on), and I called about it and the staff member told us they would put in a “work order”. No one came, we had to go to the store to get supplies to fix it ourselves so we could use the shower during our stay.
- both doors to the washer/dryer were broken, which I also told the manager about, and it was not fixed during our stay.
- there were only 2 parking passes allowed for our room. This was not told to us in any of the information about parking. It just said free onsite parking. One of our cars had to be parked across the street in an unsecured parking area.
-the basketball court was not located on the premises. It too was across the street behind the HOA building. This is not in any information whatsoever. I had to reach out to staff to even know where it was located. Also, the basketball area was not maintained well.
- the pool is supposed to be non smoking, but there were people smoking all around it. Being a non-smoker, that was irritating.
-the door stopper to the front door was broken so every time you opened the door, the door stopper would come down and you would have to hold it while you shut the door. We taped it up, but it kept falling down.

There was no physical person on-site at all. The staff that left their name and number did call me back when I called them, but didn’t come fix anything or call me back to see if anyone came to fix it. Since the fitness center was not available, he told us we could go to a local gym about two miles away, but then later told us the only gym that we could go to and get reimbursed was 20 mins away. That is frustrating, because amenities are what typically decides where I am staying, and when they are not available as stated, it is a deal breaker for rebooking with the same resort/condo/hotel, etc. in the future.

Recommendations:
Have someone physically on-site. The virtual checkin was nice, but not having someone on-site at all was not the way to go. Also, the place was not maintained like it should have been. Notice I didn’t mention all the construction work in any of my complaints, because it was expected and communicated before arrival. My family and I expected to use the indoor pool and fitness center and were not able to as it was not available. We would have stayed elsewhere. We won’t stay here in the future due to these items mentioned.

This place is very well maintained and clean. Everything was in working order. Great space for the family to hang out and we didn't miss a beat in the kitchen. The walk to the beach is quite short and the pool was never overcrowded. Would recommend and stay again!

My wife and I along with our nine young children stayed four nights in this condo. It is beautifully decorated and the location is perfect! We were told this condo came with a beach umbrella to use, but we couldn't find it. However, it did have a couple of box fans and a pack and play in the closets despite not being listed as amenities. The kitchen utensils were well-stocked in my opinion, but bring spices, etc for cooking meals. The fitness room was nice as well as the indoor/outdoor pools and the giant hot tub! Unfortunately, the basketball and tennis courts were located across the street with no direct crosswalk to get to them, so we didn't use them. All in all, we had a great time, and we would definitely stay here again!

Everything was great!..clean place,perfect view and access to the beach!!
Amy H. Jun 2020
We loved the spacious condo! Awesome big screen TV, conveniently located close to elevator, pool, and beach. Balcony was huge.
Tracey H. Jun 2020
This condo was very nice, however dealing with Vacasa was not something I would recommend. We only had 4 towels and 2 parking passes for our unit that slept 10. The hold times to speak with someone from Vacasa were incredibly long and even messages and emails were not answered for days/weeks.
Manager response:

Kristi H. May 2020
Everything was great only issue was not enough towels and could have been cleaner, trash still on floor, beds still had sand in them. Overall amazing location and beautiful interior. Exterior of building could use update

We had a great time at Orange Beach, condo wasn’t quite as nice as others I have stayed in previously.
Janet J. Aug 2018
We enjoyed our stay. But, the microwave did not work and the closet mirror was about to fall off. Also, one of the outlets in the master bedroom didn't work.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
Paula W. Jul 2018
Great location and the condo had a very “homey” feel!
Venissa W. Jul 2018
For first timers like us..more info on the beach rules about tents, umbrellas and chairs. We had no idea we had to rent the chairs and umbrellas!
