Our 8th floor, 2 BR, 2 BA condo is located in the Phoenix III condo building and has every amenity that you need to make it your home away from home. The condo is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Orange Beach, Alabama. The views from the balcony are truly breathtaking - the reason we bought the condo.
