Actually my family and I stayed in October 2013. It was the most comfortable, relaxing, and luxurious beach vacation ever. Mr. Thatcher was wonderful to deal with and I would like to recommend staying in his condo if the opportunity arises. I would have written a review sooner but I became a grandma to triplets and I forgot. Better late than never! I can't wait to go back!
Our family of 10 stayed in a four bedroom condo that was over 3000 square feet. We all had our own bath plus a hallway half bath. No one ever complained of being crowded. In fact one member said she needed a GPS to help find her way around from the master bedroom through the master bath, closet and out of the utility room and back to her bedroom. The kitchen, living area, deck and views were the best I have ever stayed in. I wish my personal home was this nice. If you ever get the wish to be like George and Louise Jefferson and move on up to the high rise apartment in the sky, stay here. In the past we rented three condo's and tried to get the rooms near each other, in this instance we all were behind one front door and loved it.

Our first visit to Orange Beach and found the only thing that outshined the condo was the beach view and sunsets viewed from the condo's 12th floor balcony hot tub. Condo is well appointed, three large rooms each with private bath. Master has access to the balcony and a to-die for master bath. All top of the line appliances. Nothing spared for comfort. Complex has everything you need for a fun vacation. Two large outdoor pools (and I do mean large), a separate kiddie pool, large indoor pool (which we didn't use as the weather was just too good to not be outdoors), a wonderful lazy river with plenty of tubes to use), well equipped workout room and other amenities you'd expect at a complex of this quality (ie spa, shops, etc). Condo is in C building, lazy river, workout room and indoor pool are on the 4th floor of the D building. Plenty of luggage carts can be found in the lobby of each building.
Randy was nice enough to work with us on dates. Situated within easy drive (about a half mile tops) of a couple of grocery stores which you'll need to visit to buy paper and cleaing products (as well as food of course). Overall when we come back, this is the place to stay.
