Great getaway!


Karrie is an awesome host with an awesome place to stay. The decor and floor plan work so good. Lots of room so you aren’t in each other’s space. Very comfortable sofa and chairs. Enjoyed some very relaxing time on the balcony. Would love to stay again.

Best vacation to date!


Our family of 7 stayed at Karrie's condo last week and it was an absolute dream. I read other reviews that stated she has thought of everything and they were right! The kitchen was stocked with dishwashing liquid, salt and pepper, all the dishes you could possibly need and the washer and dryer area was stocked with laundry pods, dryer sheets and other miscellaneous items. Her owners closet was full of beach chairs, tents, and sand toys and buckets galore. These extras saved us well over $200. We never felt cramped and the patio was a favorite as we were able to see dolphins, Stingrays and the Blue Angels even flew by. Conveniently located across the street were plenty of grocery stores, restaurants and just about anything you could possibly need. I would hands down recommend this condo to any family member or friend! Karrie is wonderful

The perfect place to stay!!!


As a family, we have been coming to Orange Beach for the last few years and we have to say that Phoenix Orange Beach 1605 has been our favorite place to stay so far!!! Karrie has been the absolute best owner to work with, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. She was always fast to reply and helpful with any questions we had!! The unit was perfect. Beautifully decorated with a great view of the Gulf of Mexico!! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed (top quality too!) and the use of the beach equipment and toys ended up saving us a lot of money on beach service fees!! We feel that we have found our "home away from home" at the Phoenix Orange Beach 1605 and will definitely be booking through Karrie again!! Thanks so much for a great vacation!!

We have been renting condos in OB for nearly 30 years and this unit definitely ranks as one of the best places we have had the pleasure of staying at. The unit is tastefully decorated, extremely clean and all furniture and appliances are in excellent condition. Exceptional patio furniture with room for a family to enjoy a meal overlooking the lazy river and the Gulf of Mexico. Kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of cookware and dishes for a large group.

Fantastic Property!


We had a great time at this beautiful condo with a gorgeous view from the balcony. The owner was great to communicate with and very responsive. We arrived to find everything exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Everything is so nicely decorated - very comfortable! In the bedrooms, we really appreciated the USB ports, comfy beds and nice linens. The kitchen is very well stocked with plenty of dishes, glassware, pots/pans & utensils. And there is plenty of pantry space! The family area is perfect for relaxing and spending time together watching tv or playing games. Perhaps our favorite place was the balcony - it has 2 comfy lounge chairs and a tall table for 6 that is perfect for outdoor meals and dolphin watching. The condo is in a great location just minutes to restaurants and Publix. The grounds are very well maintained and the access to the beach is perfect. Oh, and the elevators in the building are the best I’ve ever experienced in a large complex. We had a great stay and highly recommend!

Incredible stay!


Working between 2 hurricanes we finally made it for our 10 day stay in Orange Beach and we are so glad we did! The owner was extremely accommodating and very easy to work with! She is very friendly, responsive and attentive to our every question. She makes you feel like family! We arrived to find a beautiful condo with a gorgeous view of the beach! This is not a typical vacation condo. The owners furnishings are first class. You sense the pride the owner has in the unit. The appointments are very nice, the decorating is beautiful yet, family friendly. Each of the 3 bedrooms are large, have very comfortable beds, plenty of room in each closet and dresser, with a spacious bathroom attached. She even thought to include USB ports in the bed stand for your iPhone to charge. Master bedroom has a great view of the gulf, master bath has a shower and garden tub. The den is spacious with a vaulted ceiling and a great big screen tv with every station or streaming option you can imagine. It is a warm comfortable environment perfect for playing cards with the kids or watching the big game. The kitchen has everything you’d need for cooking. It has both a coffee brewer and Keurig. The refrigerator and freezer are large with plenty of room. There is a separate ice maker in the bar. All the appliances are new. There is a great lazy river and slide for the kids as well as an indoor pool for the little ones. Access to the beach is quick. The condo is in a wonderful location minutes from great restaurants and across the street from Publix. Wonderful stay! Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Phoenix Orange Beach #1605. The condo is in excellent condition, beautifully furnished, and is exceptionally well stocked.

Family Getaway


This condo is absolutely beautiful!! Having grandchildren living in Orange Beach, we have stayed at many beachside and bayside properties (including Turquoise Place and Caribe). Phoenix Orange Beach is, by far, one of our favorites (if not the favorite). The condo is new and very well equipped with everything you might need for your vacation. The view when you walk in the door is breathtaking. We enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning on excellent quality patio furniture. It’s quite obvious that the furnishings were personally chosen and not just the average condo package. The owner, Karrie, was such a pleasure to work with from the initial booking plus calling to make sure everything was going well during our stay. I wish all owners took as much pride in their property rentals as Karrie. I’m already looking at the calendar for our next visit! Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with our family!!

EXACTLY as shown! Heaven on the beach!


This was by far the best unit I have ever rented. Usually, I look at the unit pictures, amenities, location, descriptions and reviews to determine my rental selection. This was the ONLY one that was EXACTLY as promised. Most of the time the pictures on the websites show pristine conditions and décor, but when I get there it looks like the owners put the "good" décor away and brought out the old stuff, bedding, curtains, dishes, brik-a-brak, etc. Not here. Everything is as pictured. This unit is beautiful and brand new. Top of the line décor and appliances. I stayed there with my husband, mother, niece and 4 children and the unit was spacious and comfortable enough for all of us. The dishes, glasses and silverware were plentiful. The unit contains a crockpot, beautiful cookware, bakeware and a great knife set. There is ice and water provided in the refrigerator along with an additional ice maker in the wet bar. The washer and dryer are large (very large) capacity and there are plenty of dryer sheets and laundry soap available. The dishwasher has lots of detergent available. Toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags and toiletries are supplied at a started quanitity. There were lots of things for the kids to do. Smart Tv's allowed Netflix and other viewing options as well as satellite TV. They also had lots of card and board games to play with (although we were outside most of the time). There is a private storage room directly across the hall from the unit that has a cooler, beach chairs, and other fun beach items. You can use these items or bring your own. Everything pool and beach related is to be stored in this room. This keeps the sand out of the living space. The lazy river and water slide were a huge hit with the kids. They played more there than on the beach! The owner contacted us while we were there to make sure everything was as we expected and was very helpful with everything. The only negative I can think of (and it has nothing to do with the unit or owner) is the pool area does not have any chairs in the sun. So if are wanting to tan, you will need to stay on the beach or bring your own chairs to sit in. This unit is first class. You will not regret making this your vacation home. Thank you, Karrie Evans, for making this a trip that will be remembered forever.

ORANGE BEACH EXPERIENCE


This property is wonderful and unit 1605 is wonderful and is everything that is advertised. We could not ask for more. Spacious and decorated very tastefully. The closet across the hall for beach accessories was especially nice. Security appears present at any hour and the enclosed hall ways are great too. If you want to be in an area that is close to everything and able to walk to alot of stuff, this is it. As for the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. We used to come to the area every year when our kids were little. Our last visit was 12 years ago. It is amazing what a decade will do !! We enjoyed this beach because it was quiet and not crowded. Unfortunately, this has changed. There are people and cars everywhere !! When asking the locals what was going on, the common phrase was "this place has blown up" ! We tried to dine at The Hangout and the wait was over 2 hours long-sorry that's just not our style. Very few restaurants accept reservations, like Big Fish (which I highly recommend). Honestly, we liked it before it blew up. It was actually a fun, yet sad, visit for us, since it was just not the way we remembered it. I just hope, for the people of the areas sake, that Gulf Shores/Orange Beach does not turn into another Myrtle Beach, but it sure looks like it is on its way.
