A friend of mine has invited me and another friend to spend a long weekend in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach sometime in the next couple of months. And of course I said yes—I’m not one to turn down a chance at a beach vacation.
But since this whole thing is his plan, he’s working out the details, including where we stay. He decided on a three-bedroom condo at Phoenix VI, which is an excellent choice. I’ve stayed there before, and absolutely loved it…but I admit, I was a little sad that this vacation wouldn’t include a lazy river. I realized that this has become my condo amenity that I can’t vacation without. The last couple of years, I almost always choose Phoenix on the Bay or Phoenix West, both of which have lazy rivers (and tennis courts, and indoor/outdoor pools, and lots of other awesome amenities).
Saying that I “can’t vacation” without a lazy river is a little bit of an exaggeration, though, and Phoenix VI offers a few amenities that some others don’t—like a full basketball court and a racquetball court. And since I know what an athletically competitive person he is, I’m pretty certain this is why he picked this Orange Beach condo (I see a basketball tournament in my future).
That’s what I love about Brett/Robinson condos—the variety of amenities, from pools and hot tubs to barbeque grills and fully furnished kitchens to putting greens and even boat slips at a couple locations. With so much to choose from, vacations are never a disappointment.
