Our Favorite Place to Stay
This is our favorite place to stay. Beautiful condo. Very comfortable place. The perfect place to stay with family. Very tastefully decorated and cozy feel. Pool and kiddie pool is very nice, grounds are very well kept. Great location to everything. Very quite location abs beautiful view of the pass.
Just what my family needed. The condo was above and beyond my expectations. Very clean. Beds were comfortable. Good WIFI connection. Great ocean view and was able to enjoy the balcony. The property management was cordial and helped give us great dinner and attraction advice. GREAT location close to everything (restaurants; grocery store; beach; etc). Contacted the owners of the condo, and they were so nice and warming. One of the best and most relaxing vacations I have taken in a while.
Thank you for your stay. We are glad you enjoyed it and look forward to your next stay.
Relaxing - Great Stay!
We spent our family vacation in this condo - wife, 1 toddler, 2 grandparents, and extended family nearby. The condo was perfect for our needs with easy access to restaurants, grocery and of course, the beach. Everything was ready to go when we showed up and it was easy to settle in and get on with our vacation. The indoor pool and spa was perfect for our child, and the gym was great for early morning workouts overlooking the ocean. The rooms were sizeable and the balcony was a great addition - could have everyone out there and not feel cramped. Nice to have a secondary balcony off the master (with chairs) to get a bit of privacy as well. Very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend.
Great trip with the baby!
We stayed here over the New Years holiday with our parents and our 1 year old son and it was perfect. The rooms are spacious and there was plenty of room for our very energetic toddler to play. We especially loved having access to an indoor pool on days when the weather was bad. The living room is cozy and comfortable for relaxing after a day spent on the beach and at the pool, not to mention the beautiful view of the ocean from the big balcony. It absolutely felt like a home away from home and we will definitely stay here again next time we are in Orange Beach.
Great Time!!! Very Cozy and Romantic!!!
My wife and I stayed here for a romantic getaway/vacation, and we couldn't be more pleased. Since I am in Grad School, we don't get many vacations and really haven't seen a beach since our honeymoon. When we saw the pics on this unit and the price, we really couldn't pass it up.
Upon arriving, the place looked and felt much larger than the pictures led us to believe. The upgraded kitchen, bathrooms, and furniture also was a plus. My wife loved the decor, which gave a nice "beachy" feel without going over the top like many places try to do. We had friends come and visit for the night and they said the same thing. Not only was the beach a few minutes walk away, the building has a cozy indoor and outdoor pool for those days when it rains.
However, the biggest perk of this unit was the view. You have the benefit of being high enough to see the whole beach without the noise, the sunsets/sunrises are spectacular, and the hurricane doors prevented any wind draft from entering the unit.
Essentially, this unit was our second home for the week. We loved cooking in the kitchen together and checking out the great eating spots that are only a few minutes away. The inspirational books throughout the house gave us nice reading material. Overall, we loved this place and look forward to booking this unit again.
P.S. If you are looking for a great place to eat…check out Cosmo's Restaurant & Bar!!!
A little disappointed!
We have been staying at Phoenix Properties for 25+ years and this unit was disappointing. I decided to pay extra for a 3 bedroom and wrap around balcony because in the past, that meant a much larger unit in general, including the living room, kitchen and dining. This was not the case. The common areas felt very small, much smaller than other Phoenix units. It was our first stay at VIII and for some reason, I thought that the higher the Phoenix number, the newer the building. This unit needs some attention and TLC. Appears to be an absentee owner. Unable to open and close the sliding glass door without some serious muscle - it was a running joke that you had to pull the door with strength from deep within your gut, while grunting. Gum wrapper and plastic deodorant top left on bedroom nightstand. Hair in tub in hall bathroom. Pots and utensils were either not clean or had been taken out of dishwasher with powder still on them. They few pots they had had to be washed before using. The only teflon pan is beyond usable, I would say dangerous to use, and so pitted it should be pitched. It was disgusting. We tried frying eggs in two other "new looking" silver frying pans, using a ton of olive oil because it's all we had on hand, and even those stuck. Breakfast was a disaster! No baking pans - only a very old round cookie sheet. The water pressure when showering was ridiculously low but maintenance said one of the boosters were out. The dryer took FOREVER on high heat to dry clothes but we've experienced this in other Phoenix buildings as well. Check-in after 5:00 requires check-in at Phoenix VII, which the security guard could have told us when we stopped at the gate and gave him our name upon arrival at 8:00. The unit just had a really bad vibe compared to all of the others we have stayed in. The good: comfortable sofa, quiet complex, quick elevator ride since on 7th floor, upgraded kitchen counter and appliances (but not contents), kitchen counter faces the sliding doors so you can enjoy the view while preparing meals, friendly employees, spacious master bedroom (although the sliding glass door and private balcony faces the parking lot instead of the beach like all others we have stayed in), literally minutes from Publix, pharmacy, restaurants, FloraBama, and other than the sofa, really cute furnishings.
