About Carey and Ginger Hollingsworth

We live in Birmingham, Alabama. I am an architect and my wife is a school teacher. We have two adult boys. We happily share our favorite things to do with you, especially regarding food and drink! I serve on the Board of Directors of the Condo Association.

Carey and Ginger Hollingsworth purchased this condo in 2002

Why Carey and Ginger Hollingsworth chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We treat this unit as our second home with family oriented decor and furnishings, not a sparse rental with a couple of palm tree pictures .Very kid and elderly friendly, close to pool and beach. Walk in from parking in front only 2 steps up! We have been coming to Needle Rush Point for over 20 years and have been Owners for 15 years. There's no other place like it around. Low rise, charming, lots of room and rarely crowded except for holiday weekends. We raised our 2 boys here fishing, crabbing, playing..... They are grown now and still love to come back every chance they get! A large number of our renters have been coming back for many years, some several times a year. We are usually very flexible with dates and check in check out times (except in the summer, which is strictly rented by the week from Friday to Friday). We are also very reachable by phone or email during your stay if you require assistance with anything or have an issue of some kind.

What makes this condo unique

60 units on gulf side and 40 on the river side. There are only about 25 units that rent, so it is rarely crowded. If you fish bring your boat as you can dock for free while you are here and store your trailer in the boat yard. Fishing advice and tips freely dispersed! Access is by keyless entry, so no keys to hand off or keep up with.

Best spot on the Key!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to the Perdido Key area for years and this is by far our favorite unit! As soon as you walk in the door it feels like home! We love the decor of this unit and it was very accommodating. One of my favorite things about this unit is the location. It's not too far from anything! Orange Beach is literally just over the bridge, and going to watch the Blue Angels is just a little drive. Great restaurants are nearby that are family friendly. The owner was very nice and helpful with any questions we had--even sending us a text while we were there to let us know the Blue Angels were going to fly over our beach so we wouldn't miss it! She really goes the extra mile to make your stay fabulous!

Go Low Not High...(Rise)

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this wonderful condo! It has everything you need for a relaxing and fun vacation. Ground floor location gives you easy access to pool or beach. Riverside gives you a place for your boat and another pool. Walk to great restaurants and Flora-Bama. The owners were the nicest people and very accommodating. My family will go back soon!

Needle Rush Point

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this property and it will not be our last..already planning for next year. It is beautifully appointed with any and everything one might need to have the perfect vacation! I truly feel like I am home when I am there. Thanks to the wonderful owners who open their home so that others can also enjoy the beautiful Gulf!

Unique property with units on the beach and across the street on Old River overlooking Ono Island. Just over a mile by boat from Perdido Pass and some of the worlds finest fishing. Boat slips with water and power and PWC tie ups are available for your use at no charge. Boat and trailer storage is also available free on site. Great fishing and crabbing from the lighted docks and observation pier. Fabulous pool overlooking Old River. Walking distance down the beach to the famous FloraBama (you wouldn't want to drive after being there anyway!)
