My husband & I bought this condo just days before Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf area. Fortunately our unit was spared, and the coast has rebounded beautifully. We love this area, great for weekend get-a-ways or summer vacations. The balcony is so nice to sit and enjoy your coffee watching the sunrise, and enjoy the boaters go in and out of the boat launch. My husband & I recently retired and look forward to spending more time in Orange Beach! Hope you enjoy this vacation spot as much as we do !
