What’s your favorite type of view when you’re on vacation? A friend (who is currently in the midst of planning a spring vacation) asked me this the other day, and I had to think about it. Different views have different advantages, and each is attractive in its own way.
A view of the property’s pool, for instance, can be appealing in the right setting. One of my favorite pool-view condos is Phoenix on the Bay—you’re not just overlooking a pool, you’re also overlooking a lazy river, water slide, palm trees, and people having a good time. I’ve often enjoyed simply people-watching from my balcony when I have a pool view.
Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club is another favorite pool view condominium, both because of the beautiful landscaping of the pool area and because you get a view of Little Lagoon beyond the pool and tennis courts.
Then of course there are the water-front views: several Orange Beach condos offer Gulf-front views, and others offer views of the Bay, Phoenix on the Bay and Phoenix on the Bay II. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as stepping onto your balcony and gazing out across the Gulf of Mexico—so maybe that is my favorite view after all!
