Services & Trip Planning

A cloud show provides a backdrop to condominiums on Pleasure Island

Beach front condominiums usually are a better value than hotels, offering more space, separate bedrooms, a kitchen and even a private balcony — all with a million-dollar view! To help you prepare for a perfect vacation and take full advantage of our condos, we offer planning and packing tips on this page. Also, many local companies provide special services, such as equipment rentals or pet care and boarding. See Pleasure Island Spotlight, at right.

Pleasure Island Condominium
kitchens are well-equipped and will help save money by limiting your reliance upon costly restaurants, though a picnic lunch or night out can be fun for the family. You do not need to bring cookware or appliances such as coffee maker, toaster or blender. We provide dishes, silverware, glassware, knives, and basic tools such as can and bottle openers and salt and pepper shakers! We do not provide special items such as a pressure cooker, griddle, steamer or wok. Obviously, portable barbecue grills are not allowed in condos or on balconies due to fire codes. However, many buildings have common area grills located conveniently, and safely, outside.

Since each luxury condo also is equipped with a dishwasher and a clothes washer-dryer, you'll need laundry supplies. Comfortable patio furniture is available on balconies — but these items may not be taken out of the condos (to the pool or beaches). Each condo also is supplied with one set of bed linens and one dish towel. In each bathroom, you'll find one roll of toilet paper and sets of bath towels and wash cloths to match the maximum occupancy of each condo.

Some visitors like to plan meals in advance and bring recipe items, but grocery prices in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach are about the same as they are inland. As a bonus, the stores are stocked with plenty of fresh seafood, including Gulf shrimp, crab and crawfish!
