This year we went to Orange Beach (located next to Gulf Shores, AL) and stayed in the beautiful Turquoise Place. The resort was nearly empty. The beach was nearly empty. Everytime we went to one of the pools it was empty. I was in heaven!!! It was early May and so the summer crowds had not yet arrived. The condo was so amazing! I highly recommend staying at the Turquoise Place! It is pricey but in my opion it is worth every penny and we will stay there again when we go back to that area.
Here are some pics of the condo we stayed in for those of you looking for a nice place to stay in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. This will give you a good over view of the Turquoise Place.
All the condos have huge balconies over looking the Gulf and beautiful beach.
Here is the fancy hot tub on our private balcony. We turned the temperature on it down one night so that even EC could have a turn in it. :)
Every condo has an outdoor kitchen with gas grill and sink.
Large living room with tons of comfy seating!
Dining table with 10 chairs and 5 barstools at the kitchen island.
Another view of the living room.
Every condo has a wet bar with wine cooler, ice maker and sink.
The kitchen was really nice! High end appliances and it was beautiful too. There is a really nice Publix very close by where you can stock up on groceries.
Every condo has a nice big laundry room with sink in it which is great for hanging wet swimsuits above for drip drying.
One of the 3 1/2 bathrooms in our condo had a big walk in shower. This was not the master bath, it is a guest bath.
This guest bedroom (there were 3 bedrooms total) had 3 sets of bunk beds in it. All the condos have different bed set ups. Some have all king size beds and some have Queens and Twins in them. We invited my mom and my brother to come with us and he slept in this room.
This was the other guest bedroom and it had a king size bed in it. This is where my mom slept.
This bath was in my mom's room. All the bedrooms have their own bathroom and then there is one 1/2 bath in the hall.
This was our bedroom, the master bedroom. It has a king size bed. And all the TV's were flat panel and they have a great selection of tv channels. Our room had a door that led out to the huge balcony and right outside our window was the fancy hot tub.
The huge master bathroom shower with lots of different shower heads.
This huge fancy Jacuzzi tub was a big hit with Emme Claire!
Master bathroom TV and double sinks. The Master bedroom also had a huge walk in closet.
Master bedroom. The walls facing the ocean in the condo were floor to ceiling windows. That was a really nice feature. And because we went in early May the weather was beautiful and we were able to leave the doors open at times and hear the sounds of the waves. It was wonderful!
This is one of the outdoor pools.
Turquoise Place two buildings, this is one of them. Locals call them the twin towers.

Huge heated pool in our building.

I like this pool because it had the beach entry which is great for little ones.
Waterfall under the bridge across one of the outdoor pools.
The lazy river.
The Turquoise Place also has tennis courts, exercise rooms, sauna, children's playground and you park in parking garages that are the first few stories of the buildings. We loved this place and highly recommend it!
