Only miles from the Florida border, and biking distance from Gulf Shores, our condo is positioned in front of Gulf State Park and across the street from the Gulf Coast. It's spacious back porch has beautiful views of the marshes which often have alligators, deer, turtles, bald eagles and many other birds and fish. The interior of the condo has recently been remodeled and has a clean, simple, and contemporary design. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The couch in the living room pulls out into a bed allowing 8 to sleep comfortably. It has two balconies, one facing the state park and the other facing the swimming pool. We have beach access directly across the street. The pool has BBQ grills and bathrooms and is well-kept by maintenance. Gulf Shores, home of the Hangout Festival, is only 5 miles away.

The state park trails surround our condo and are great for jogging and biking.
The condo would come fully furnished. It has been used as a rental property. During the summer months, cost to rent the property is $220 a night, pulling in around $5000 a month. Winter months pull in much less, but the bills are always paid with what we make. We have also used this condo as our permanent home. Many of the surrounding units are also lived in year-round.
This unit is also convenient for home-exchanging. We have done many home-exchanges with people around the world. Our latest one was in Paris.
