Featured Gulf Shores Rentals

Both cities are home to fantastic accommodations and rentals, award-winning restaurants, spectacular events and 32 miles of pristine, sugar-white beaches. It’s no wonder so many choose to vacation here each year—and why many more call it a home away from home!

If you’re fairly new to our piece of paradise on the Gulf of Mexico, you might be wondering which condos will make your stay one for the books. 

Here are 8 top-rated condos to consider choosing for your Gulf Shores and Orange Beach vacation.

Great Condos in Gulf Shores

People from all over have been coming to enjoy the beaches of Gulf Shores since the late 1930s, when the Intracoastal Waterway was completed and the Gulf State Park opened. 

Since then, the area has grown exponentially and has come to be known as one of the most family-friendly beach cities around, with a number of wonderful condos available that leave most guests never wanting to leave.


If you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate condo, then the Caribbean may be for you! 

In addition to private balcony views, this property offers easy access to the beautiful white, sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast, both indoor and outdoor pools (heated seasonally), as well as a steam room and sauna. 

What’s more? There are only eight floors, meaning your feet can be touching the sugary sand in mere moments!


Clearwater is a top spot in Gulf Shores that boasts a five-star rating by virtually every guest. Its prime location provides the calmness and seclusion you’re looking for in a beach locale, while also offering close proximity to The Hangout and the Gulf State Park and Pier, as well as some of the best dining and shopping in the area.

Island Royale

If you’re looking for panoramic views of the Gulf, search no further! The Island Royale features scenic balconies with views that go on for days. 

Next to the beautiful views off the balcony, the Island Royale features:

* a convenient boardwalk that offers easy access to the sugar-white sand and emerald beach

* a swim-through indoor/outdoor pool

* a hot tub, sauna and steam room to relax in

* an exercise room overlooking the beach 

* an accommodating space for grilling


If you’ve ever cruised down East Beach Boulevard, chances are you’ve noticed the luxurious Lighthouse Condominiums. 

Each condo offers one-of-a-kind views from a large private balcony, as well as exclusive access to:

* an indoor pool

* a children’s pool

* a state-of-the-art sauna

* a covered hottub

* first-class BBQ grilling stations

Royal Palms 

Rightfully named the Royal Palms, this property offers breathtaking views of the Gulf, the finest amenities, indoor and outdoor pools, a steam room and sauna and more. One of the newest features guests can now enjoy is the recently installed grilling stations overlooking the dunes. 

It gets even better! The Royal Palms is in walking distance of the gorgeous Gulf State Park and Pier, and is a heartbeat away from the island’s best dining, shopping and recreation.

The Sandpiper

The Sandpiper is one of the Gulf Coast’s most-loved and popular condos—and for good reason! 

Not only does it offer a friendly, community atmosphere, a tropical courtyard and a seasonally heated pool, there are only three floors—meaning you’re sure to enjoy spectacular views of the beach no matter which unit you’re in!

Outstanding Condos in Orange Beach

A close neighbor to Gulf Shores, Orange Beach is a smaller, more quaint beach town, home to roughly half the population of Gulf Shores. 

The first tourist hotel was built nearly 100 years ago in the early 1920s. Since then, the area has bloomed into a top vacation destination, with an array of chic condos to choose from.

Perdido Quay

Looking for a stress-free location and a spacious balcony to relax on during your stay? Consider Perdido Quay! 

This Orange Beach property not only offers the peace and calm you’re looking for in a vacation, but it’s also conveniently located near premier dining, shopping and recreation spots—as well as the historic and infamous Flora-Bama, if you’re also wanting to be close to the Orange Beach-area social scene. 

When you’re not out and about exploring the area, the beautiful beach and outdoor pool makes for the perfect place to kick back and soak in all the Gulf Coast goodness!

Sugar Beach

There’s a reason so many consider the Sugar Beach their home away from home! Views of Orange Beach, a tennis court and two outdoor pools to enjoy all provide the comforts of home while you’re on vacation.

When you’re not enjoying the fine amenities, the condo has to offer, you have easy access to the area’s best shopping, entertainment and restaurants. What’s not to love?
