Absolutely love staying at The Wharf. Why anyone would prefer the monotony of the waves to the constantly changing boat traffic on the intercostal is hard to imagine. And all of the entertainment you would want is right here - restaurants, bars, movie theater, arcade,exercise facility (well equipped and maintained), lots of sidewalks in a safe area to walk outdoors,...

My husband, daughter and myself stayed at The Wharf (Unit 909) for Thanksgiving and had a very pleasant stay. Unit was very clean and spacious. The master bedroom offers a King Bed with a very nice spacious room, closet and awesome bathroom! The 2nd bedroom offers a double twin bed room with a Jack and Jill Bathroom. This bathroom is...

Stayed 4 nights. Dryer never got fixed in spite of staff saying it would be the next day (every day said "tomorrow"). Staff acted like they didn't want us there in the first place. Condo itself (9th floor) was very nice. View stunk - just a man-made canal. A few dolphins showed up in a backwater one morning so that... More

We stayed for 3 nights in unit 420 which is nicely decorated & just the right height. Our 10 year old loved the bunk area, but suggested adding a small TV. We never used the pullout couch, grill or kitchen, but it seemed well equipped (Lots of restaurants to walk to) It was nice to have a dryer for our... More

We stayed in a luxurious 2 bedroom 2 bath condo that sleeps 6, owned by friends. Other condos are available for daily or weekly rent (the ones I saw ran from $150 - $205 per night, and well worth it). Many condos have balconies overlooking the intercoastal waterway with boats and yachts big and small to drool over. We saw... More

The Wharf sucks people in with there nice pool area, but don't be surprised if its closed. One day there was lightning in the area around 6:00. It lasted 30 minutes or less. They closed the pool for the whole night. Worse, the following day there was lightning around 4:00. It lasted about 15 minutes. The pool was closed for... More

My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying in unit 509 @ The Warf in Orange Beach Alabama. The experience was wonderful. The unit was on the 5th floor and near main street. You can literally walk out on the front balcony and enjoy the laser show and enjoy the nightly music fun. An added bonus, on the... More
