25th-Floor Gulf-Front Condo w/Private Balcony, Shared Indoor Pool, Sauna, Gym

This property is situated in the beautiful Gulf Coast area known for its miles of powder-soft, sugar-white sand, sparkling emerald-green waters, and treasure trove of family-focused amusements.

Fishing is a fantastic family activity when vacationing here. Learn everything you need to know about charter boat fishing, inshore fishing on the back bays, renting and/or docking your own boat, visiting artificial reefs either by boat or diving excursion, and the types of fish you're likely to hook. Take your catch to one of our outstanding seafood restaurants where they'll prepare it for you. Or, make use of your property's fully equipped kitchen to serve up the bounty.

Golfers love the area, thanks to the nine signature golf courses within a short drive of the beach.

History comes alive here. From Fort Morgan to Perdido Key to nearby Mobile, Ala., or Pensacola, Fla., and all points in between, there are many opportunities to explore the unique international culture and history of the area.

This is a shopper's paradise, with dozens of unique beach boutiques and major shopping complexes. Two popular shopping destinations are the shops at Tanger Outlets, situated just north of the beach, as well as The Wharf in Orange Beach, where you'll find shops, restaurants, a movie theater and more.

For those who want to slow things down a bit, there are numerous day spas in the area that are ready to help you relieve stress with massages, facials and salon services sure to make your vacation feel extra lavish.

If digging into nature is on the agenda, visit the backcountry trails, go kayaking or canoeing, explore the Gulf State Park or Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There are miles and miles of paved and natural paths that invite you to immerse yourself in the area's various ecosystems.

When it comes to entertaining the little ones (and the big kids, too!), visit The Park at OWA, with its heart-racing amusement park rides and midway-style games; spend the day at Waterville USA and zoom down giant waterslides, laze around the lazy river, and let the littles splash around in WAWA World; enjoy a round of miniature golf; jump and play at a trampoline park; or visit one of several fun arcades in the area.

With so many options for fun along the Gulf Coast, your family's vacation can be as high-energy or as slow-paced as you desire. Book your vacation today.

Updated look

The pics are def outdated but not in a bad way (but read the description b/c 1 bedroom didn’t have 2 beds, it was just 1 bed). The place is very nice, spacious, and updated. Views are the money maker. I didn’t want to dock the rating but the kitchen was missing what we found to be important during our stay (only had a 1/2 c measuring cup, no sheet pans of any kind, and no mixing or large bowls). And I would like to note the parking is rough for large SUVs. There’s is a sign asking smaller cars to park up on the 2nd floor but they don’t and you ultimately end up w/ nowhere to park. It’s a very small parking lot for a 26 story building. However, the condo was perfect for us, the resort is nice and walking distance to the shops and restaurants, it had all of the amenities we needed, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

When you walk in to all of the windows and that gorgeous view of the water, just wow! The condo is beautiful. The condo has been completely remodeled and is different than the pics but for the better. I was a little distressed when I thought there were twin beds in one room based on the pictures (my fault for not reading the description of the bedrooms) but found a queen bed in the room. I needed twins for my elderly father and his sitter. However Dorian (I think that was her name) from Vacasa and David (the person who is the biggest asset to this condo) immediately helped ease my stress by showing up with a twin air mattress new from the store and made sure we had linens for it. David also came through for other little things that make all the difference when staying away from home, They both were especially kind. We need more of those two people in the world. The location of the condo in Gulf Shores was great. The room that was supposed to have twin beds did not have a dresser for clothes, only two nightstands with small drawers. The air didn’t work well in the third bedroom but worked overly well in the second bedroom. We didn’t try out the pools but was told by some others that the indoor pool was extremely cold, which was a bummer for the rainy days. There are only two elevators for the building, but the wait wasn’t too bad. It’s worth the wait to be on the 25th floor, one shy of the penthouse! The road noise is essentially gone and the sound of the waves is perfect! I didn’t want to leave! I definitely would recommend staying here.

I don’t have any negatives really about the condo. Though it was a short stay, my family and I had a great time. We will book again in the future!

Joel S. May 2022
The pictures are a tad old I think. Everything is much brighter and new in person. Hope to stay here again next year!

Absolute beautiful place! And the view, WOW!!!
We met a few owners from island Towers while we were there, and they were so friendly! Will stay there again!

The property itself was beautiful, particularly the view out of the corner window. The unit, however, wasn’t so clean as we would have liked. The master bathroom shower had a large amount of mold growing on the walls. There was also sand on the floors when we moved into the unit so it didn’t feel very clean under foot. There was also a small tear in the master bed fitted sheet. Otherwise, the unit was acceptably clean. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

It was windy and the large dish on the roof of the building vibrated and made quite a bit on noise. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
