“Great Place”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We love staying here. There is so much to do. The night life is busy and loud but the mornings are calm and quiet. The staff is friendly, food is great, and shopping is first class. We've always had good experiences and the staff is very accommodating.

We have been going to orange beach for years and we always make a point to spend an evening at the wharf. Live music, good (unique) shopping, great kids activities, and amazing restaurants. I have heard the rooms are good but do not know that for fact. I do know that this is an awesome place to just hang out, it's a must attend if staying in orange beach/gulf shores.

My husband and I stayed the first night without the kids and the next two nights with the kids. It was fabulous. The pool area was relaxing and fun. The room was very clean and a great view of the water. Would definitely recommend it.

We stayed in PH1117, a 2/2 condo. The difference in the PH and regular condo is hard wood flooring and nicer appliances in the PH. These were beautiful touches giving a polished feel. We loved the marina/canal view. Honestly, prior to the trip, I wondered if I would enjoy this. It quickly became on of my treasured spots; truly refreshing with the warm breeze During the evenings we sat on the patio and listened to the charming music from the Complete Angler restaurants exterior music area, observed various yachts traveling about, and new travelers arriving via expressway bridge. With binoculars handy, we dreamed of which yacht we would buy! You had to be outside to hear the music so no worries if you want to go to bed early. The Oasis was the best entertainment for our kiddos! We had 4 of our children with us, ages 2 to 14, and EVERYONE had fun ( mom and dad included). The Oasis bathrooms were spotless. The shops, restaurants, and movie theatres were the icing on the cake! The one rainy day we had was spent going to Build a Bear, a movie, and dipping dots- all right on the Wharf grounds!!! My crew thought they had died and gone to Heaven! The staff at the rental office were great. Joan specifically, was outstanding. I forgot to mention, we also saw a dolphin on day 1 right inside the marina area. Beautiful!!! The condo was really clean. the light carpet had a few understandable spots, three handles on the drawers were missing, and there was a single smudge on the wall by the refrigerator- all normal issues except the handle. I did have to use the broken off handle, stick it in the drawer hole to open the drawer but it didn't bother me.

So, why did I give a 4 and not a 5? I had just a few cons. The ice maker was awful. We had to buy a bag of ice which ended up taking up the whole freezer; really inconvenient.The bed was hard and uncomfortable; I only slept through the night 2 out of 8 nights. The sheets kept popping off the king size bed. No mop was included and the patio got nasty so every time you walked outside your feet/shoes got dirty and black got on the light cream carpet. We spent the last night spot cleaning carpet- not fun. Only 1 roll of toilet paper was provided per bathroom, 1 dishwasher sample, 1 washing machine sample, no soaps, no dish liquid, and 3 trash-bags, That's not bad, just come prepared. They need an indoor pool to maximize the season/winter options to be a condo buyer- my opinion.

Did being away from the beach bother us? Not at all. We went to the beach one day and after three hours the kids wanted to go back to the Oasis at the condo where there is a kiddie area with really shallow water, 3 little slides, and shooting water spouts. Our two year old managed the area easily by himself, while we relaxed in loungers close by. The wave pool and waterfalls offered some excitement for the bigger kiddos. A pool basketball area, water ropes bridge, and lazy river were far more fun to my crew than sitting on the sandy/salty beach. The Oasis does offer a huge sandy area for sand castles and volley ball if that's your thing. In the end, the beach was a huge inconvenience compared the the luxuries and ease of the Oasis. Food and drinks of all kinds are offered at the Oasis, but they are expensive! Fill up before or get ready to shell out some dough!

We bought fresh seafood from Blaylock's Seafood about 1-2 miles down the road on Canal Street. They peeled/detained our huge shrimp, suggested marinades and sauces for our Snapper and scallops. We never ate out because this seafood was so incredibly good and fresh!!! Be sure and try their Shrimp Loxley! Awesome! We are bringing home about 80 lbs of additional seafood!!! Hooked for life!!! Excellent service too!

Last year we stayed in a 5/3 at Turquoise Place for about $5,000. I had zero complaints, and slept like a queen in their Temperpedic bed, but it was outside our price range this year. The cost for The Wharf, was a fraction of that expense and offered the perfect alternative.

Room Tip: Bring your own dish washing liquid, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, toilet paper, soap, paper towe...

Loved staying at The Wharf! The condo (PH 2209) was the most beautifully decorated place we have ever stayed in. Top floor. Views were great. Condo amenities were outstanding. Location of the Wharf is great. Yea, we had to drive three miles to the ocean, but to have the dining, pool movie theater, and shopping all within an elevator ride was wonderful. Highly recommend the destination, the people at The Wharf Vacation Rentals and especially this condo.

We have stayed at The Wharf for the last three years and fall more in love with it each year. Everything is in walking distance once you get there. The pool area is wonderful!! It is so nice to be on vacation, park you car, and not have to leave again.

We loved how quiet it was and our condo was extremely clean and well maintained. Liked the amenities but was unable to use them because we had bad rain storms but the pool area looked pretty cool. We will go back. Stayed in unit 912 and we recommend it.
