Property Details

Updated: May 14, 2015
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Cruise ship or condo? It's hard to tell from the view! Step out on the 20th floor balcony of our Crystal Tower penthouse and take in the magnificent ocean view. Relax in one of the lounge chairs, or enjoy your morning coffee at the outdoor dining table of unit # 2008.

Pool, beach club or ocean? It's hard to make a decision! For a quick dip, you will find the indoor pool, outdoor pool and hot tub adjacent to the lobby. Across the air-conditioned walkway (or the blue tunnel, as it is referred to)you will find the largest pool in Gulf Shores. Drift through the lazy river, or lounge in one of the many chairs provided; restroom facilities and showers are also available.

There is a covered dining area, or if you prefer, a more private upper sundeck. OR, proceed down the wooden walkway to l00' of beautiful white sand. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rent at the end of the walkway, and when your day at the beach is over, come back and enjoy the hot tub.

Dine in or grill out? Regardless of your choice, you will find all the tools and appliances necessary in our well stocked kitchen. We provide the BBQ tools, you provide the charcoal and food. Benches and tables are found at the grilling area making it easy to be the chef you really are!

King, queen or twin? Whatever your choice or need, we provide all three. New this year: New Bedspreads, New Pillows, New Hypoallergenic Pillow Covers. Several renters have commented on how comfortable the beds are, but don't take their word for it, come see for yourself. Either way you can enjoy the great HD TVs, complete with DVD players in every room.

Walk through our front door, see the view and immediately you will see why we refer to a stay here as non-stop relaxation.

About the Owner

Jim and I had always enjoyed the times we spent in Gulf Shores, and when an opportunity arose for us to purchase a condo , we jumped on it. We have had the most fun decorating and furnishing the place, and even more fun learning the back roads, the favorite local eating places and the best fishing spots. Our friends that have stayed there confirm what we have always felt: once you step in the front door, you never stop relaxing! We invite you to 'come for non-stop relaxation'

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place. My wife remarked to me that this was one of the coolest condos I had ever booked...which is high praise from her. The condo has a fabulous view. You can see everything from there. It is wonderfully furnished. Everything feels brand new. The amenities are also excellent. You have 3 pools to choose from, 2 hot tubs and even a lazy river. There is a sauna and the fitness room is excellent with several stationary bikes as well as weights. The location couldn't be better. You are right in the thick of things. I had wondered if I would need to drive into Pensacola or Mobile for extra activities but there was more than a weeks worth of things to do in Gulf Shores...all just minutes from the condo. Susan and Jim, the owners, are excellent. They were more than helpful with my questions. Susan even provided me with an in depth list of things to do while there as well as an excellent list of places to eat.

Had a blast!

My wife & kids (ages 3 & 1) stayed here in September and loved it. The unit & the entire complex is as described and just as it appears in the YouTube videos. The view from the 20th floor is fantastic since you're well above the condos across the street. The 3-minute walk to the large pool/beach area is not bad at all. Our kids actually enjoyed watching cars go underneath us as we walked across the air-conditioned walkway. The large pool area is great, especially for kids. Pool is very large & has a lazy river with a bunch of fountains (another hit w/ our kids). Also a huge hot tub & plenty of lounge chairs (both by the pool and on a separate sundeck above the pool). Some areas could use a minor facelift (e.g., a few missing/cracked tiles in the pool area) but nothing that will interfere with your enjoyment. If you don't want to walk to the large pool, there's also a smaller outdoor pool & hot tub at the base of the condo. Adjacent to this outdoor pool is a heated indoor pool, which came in handy one morning when we had rain.

There are plenty of elevators, and we never had to wait long for one. Unpacking is a breeze, too, as there are lots of luggage/shopping carts near the elevators. Walking from the elevator to the unit, you get a beautiful view of Little Lagoon as you look out to the north. The balcony views of the beach & ocean to the south (and sunsets to the west, of course) are even more spectacular. The unit itself is very nice. Kitchen & laundry room are well-stocked, and there are some games & books in the family room. We loved the balcony and spent a lot of time out there (eating lunch, watching the sunset, listening to the waves & looking at the stars at night).

Gulf Shores is a great town with plenty to do & lots of dining options nearby. Some that we went to have decent food but are a bit touristy such as Original Oyster House & The Hangout (although this place seems like it would be a lot of fun during peak season). By far, our favorite meal, though, was Bahama Bob's. Close by, nice location right along the beach, and great food. The steamed Royal Reds shrimp were amazing and the burger & fries were excellent as well. Even simple things like my son's grilled cheese was one of the best I've ever tasted. Even if you have a wait, it's well worth it.

Lastly, both the owners & the management company (Young's Suncoast) were great to work with. Would definitely consider coming back & would highly recommend to others.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week and it was a great trip for our family! This trip was to celebrate my husband returning from deployment in Afgainistan. The weather was great and the view from the 20th floor was amazing! The only thing I would recommend is if you have a couple of teenage girls with you bring extra towels there just wasn't enough regular towels for our family, unless you do laundry after every shower. Besides that the condo had everything you might need for a great vacation. We will be renting this condo again in the future!! The owners of the condo were great and even emailed a list of things to do in the area!

Best view on the strip!

This was our second time staying at Crystal Towers. The first time we have ever stayed on the 20th floor and it was absolutely awesome. We are ready to schedule our trip for next year. This is by far the best property at Gulf Shores. All of the pools and amenities are great. The walkway over the road is a great feature for families with kids. I have no opinion on making the unit better. It is great!

Great Stay

Our family had a great time! The facility was in good order. We stayed on the top floor, but never had a problem getting an elevator (three fast elevators). The pool is the best on the beach and worth the brief walk through the air conditioned corridor to get to. Highly recommend.

It was very nice. Just as it was presented online

The condo was perfectly clean with a well stocked kitchen and the beds were very comfy. The view was lovely and the grounds were well maintained.
Beware...seems check out for everyone is 10:00. If you wait until 10, it is difficult to get a luggage cart, room on an elevator and then we were in stopped bumper to bumper traffic for 2 hours trying to get up Gulf Shores Parkway. Next time my car will be backed and leaving by 8am.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are glad you liked the condo and the complex itself; we hope your guest's first trip to the ocean was lots of fun! So sorry that you were in bad traffic heading home, holiday weekends seem to be like that no matter where you stay. Please don't let that stop you from visiting with us again(maybe not over a holiday the next time!).

From the Owner

The amenities in Crystal Tower are superb, and the property is extremely well-maintained. The fact that it was built in 2006 and has the most up to date construction features is another plus. The location is perfect, there is easy load in and out, the pools and hot tubs are some of the nicest we have seen. The on-site management and security is an additional amenity not found at other places.
