About the property

Tidewater 804 Direct beach front 1BR condo with hall bunks

New Listing! Beautiful Recently Updated 8th Floor Direct Beach Front 1 Bedroom Condo

Tidewater 804 is a beautifully updated unit located in a low density building on the white sands of Orange Beach, Alabama adjacent to Gulf Shores, Alabama. This recently renovated beachfront condo is wonderfully appointed to provide a comfortable, relaxing vacation!

The unit sleeps 6 comfortably with one queen bedroom, a queen sofa sleeper and hall bunks. The hall bunks are a great feature for families traveling with children. A brand new wall mounted 32" flat screen is installed in the master bedroom, and a 42" flat screen with a smart DVD player that provides access to Hulu, Netflix and other online services is in the living room. So, if you have accounts for these services, you will enjoy the same entertainment options as you do at home! Unlimited WIFI Internet is provided as well.

The Tidewater complex offers both an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a hot tub and exercise room. Ample space is available in our gated lot so you will never have trouble finding a parking spot! And the views from the beach front balcony are spectacular! You will quickly discover why Orange Beach is regarded as one of the "Best Gulf Coast Beaches"

Feel free to get creative in our well-stocked kitchen. We provide everything that you will need to prepare a home cooked meal. And, if you'd prefer to grill, the complex offers a BBQ/picnic area. And when dining out is your choice (it is vacation after all!) there are plenty of excellent choices in the area. So, you are certain to find something to suit every craving.

Looking for activities? The area boasts something for everyone including (but not limited to) signature golf courses, canoe trails, biking & hiking paths, water parks, dolphin cruises, zoo, festivals, live music and phenomenal fishing! And let's not omit OWA the new theme park set to open in 2017.

We maintain our condo to ensure that your experience is memorable. We hope to have the pleasure of treating you as our guest and see you on the beautiful Alabama beaches soon!

About Mike and Michele

We love the Alabama coast and decided to purchase our first vacation property in Gulf Shores in 2016. In 2017, we decided that we had to have another to share with friends, family and rental guests.

Mike and Michele purchased this condo in 2017

Why Mike and Michele chose Orange Beach

Simply stated, we love the area! Tidewater is located in a central and convenient spot in Orange Beach. The beaches are white and the views are incredible. We're confident that you will love it too!

What makes this condo unique

Our Tidewater unit is perfectly situated on the 8th floor. This direct beach front unit offers a remarkable panoramic view.

  • 5 of 5

The people that worked there were helpful and very polite. Everywhere you went on the condo smelled great like the cleaned it twice a day.. the condo we stayed in was cozy and beautiful. It was up to date with anything you would need in a condo. Great price to rent the condo.. I cant say enough good things about this condo with its indoor pool and jacuzzi with a workout room for thoughs who want to keep there workout going on there vacation and they have an outdoor pool as well.. The location of the property was in a perfect place not far from anywhere you want to go, just a few minutes drive and ur there. Everything on the property was well kept and very clean.. I will definitely be coming back to stay again!

Great Vacation Spot

We had a great time and the condo was perfect for our family of four. The condo has everything you need and we surprised at all the extras that were there as well. We will definitely be staying here again!

Not Quite What We Expected

  • 2 of 5

The condo was nice, but the bedroom was tiny with little space to unpack. We were told we could get into the condo at 3:00pm. That was not the case, it was well after 3:00. The owners are a bit stingy with the items they leave in the condo.......1 roll of paper towels, 2 rolls of toilet paper, 2 TINY bars of soap, no clothes detergent (although we were told there would be some). When we took hot showers the smoke detector would go off. This is a no smoking building. There was a smoker on the porch right below ours, therefore, the smoke blew into the condo when we had the sliding glass door open. We talked to the security guard about this and were told that she couldn't do anything about it. The view was beautiful!

Owner's Response: Hi, Kim. We are so surprised to see such a poor rating and review for your stay at our condo. We are very sorry to hear that your experience didn't leave you 100% satisfied. We apologize that the unit was not ready until 3:30 (as opposed to our standard check-in time of 3:00). Our house cleaner had a heavy schedule that day and was running behind. She invited you to move your things inside while she finished up and you were more than welcome to do so. We always leave the same starter cleaning and paper products as a convenience for all of our guests and are surprised to hear you felt this was insufficient. The intention is to provide enough for 1-2 days of use to prevent our guests from having to run to the store and buy these necessities the moment after they check in. We do not provide enough to last the entire stay. We wish you would have informed us that the starter laundry detergent was missing and we would have had some brought to you. After all, it is difficult to resolve an issue that we do not know exists. Our unit is a 1BR/1BA condo and is not small for either the building or the area. All 1BR/1BA units in Tidewater are the exact same size. We clearly recite the square footage and all other capacity details in our listing. We have hosted many families in our unit without complaint about the size of our unit or the smoke alarms for this matter. Once again, had you informed us about the smoke alarm sensitivity, we could have had someone stop by and look into this. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do to prevent smoke from drifting onto the balcony from guests in neighboring units. This is not a flaw with our unit, but an unfortunate and unpredictable external circumstance. Every week brings new neighbors, some who smoke and others who don't and its impossible to prevent the ocean breeze from blowing smoke towards the building and onto balconies. Thankfully, you enjoyed the view.

Comfortable Stay and Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Tidewater 804 was very relaxing. It was clean and included many items to enjoy your stay. We took our 7 yr old grandson with us and were excited to see several of our favorite games in the hutch.
