About Sandy Wilgus
I am in my 60's, as is my husband. We moved from Michigan in 2006 after my husband received a 'forced' retirement from General Motors. Living in Alabama was a lifelong dream of mine, as I had visited different parts of the state many times. Fortunately my husband fell in love with the beach too. He is currently working at an airplane manufacturing company in Foley, while I am finally retired. We hope to sometime soon become our own snowbirds and winter at the beach and let you enjoys the summers there! Added note: April 2011: We just returned from a week cruising the Hawaiian Islands. It was beautiful -BUT- as soon as we could the same day we returned, we headed for Summer House to enjoy OUR BEACH...just as pretty to us!
Sandy Wilgus purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Sandy Wilgus chose Orange Beach
In 1989 my family began vacationing in Orange Beach. We loved it so much we purchased a two bed/two bath ocean SIDE condo up the street from Summer House. WE loved THAT so much we knew we would want to retire here someday, and needed a bigger condo to accommodate our children and their families later. In checking the different resorts, Summer House stood out way ahead of any other condo around. I remember looking up at the building from the two-tiered pool side and asking my husband if he thought we could ever be able to be so fortunate to own a unit there! In 1997 our dream was realized as we bought 1406A. We have since retired and moved nearby, not quite able to afford full time retirement at the beach just yet. But we visit weekly, if not daily, and take tremendous pride in keeping it in the 'ahhh' category we first experienced when we entered our condo. We hope you feel the same.
What makes this Condo unique
The balcony is number one - to eat, rest or visit on. Walking the beach, the indoor pool and jacuzzi. Nearby shopping is so convenient for fun or groceries. Sometimes we have forgotten how much fun it is to play miniature golf with family of all ages! Personally, I prefer to just do dolphin watch 8-10 hours a day from the boardwalk by the pool. I used to offer a dollar to the first person who could spot a dolphin for me! Still works to this day!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This place was just as described! Sandy was beyond helpful and always very quick to respond to any questions that I had. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
Great location and awesome beach view!
Loved staying at this condo. It was very clean and relaxing. We were given correct and easy directions on where it was located and how to get in. Thank you very much. We hope to see you again.

Incredible vacation for the entire family!
We just got home from Sandy's condo in Orange Beach and we can't say enough great things about the time we had while we were there--but we will try! ;)
The condo itself is very well equipped! The kitchen has 2 kinds of coffee makers ( a pod style and normal pot/filter style), measuring cups etc., steak knives and the usual plates, silverware, cups and glasses. Love the big 'W' coffee cups.
All three rooms were very comfortable. The beds are amazingly comfortable! All of the people in my family ( including those on the twin beds) said they slept great every night! I think I read the mattresses had just been replaced. You will love them!
The living area is spacious and bright! There is a large dining room table with very comfortable seating.
The view is incredible! We had the blinds open the entire time to see see the wide view of the Gulf. The balcony is HUGE! This is a corner unit to it wraps around. This allows all rooms to have balcony access.
The balcony on the side overlooks the road, but also trees, and a wide expanse of the area. This wasn't my favorite view but everyone else liked it.
I just couldn't get enough of the view of the Gulf and beach which is right outside the sliding glass doors in the living area and the master bedroom. You are on the 14th floor so you will see an incredible sunrise and sunset-as well as enjoying watching for dolphins etc during the day.
The balcony is deep with lots of chairs-including a rocking chair!
The pool is popular with two levels. It is right on the beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach right in front of the condo.
The location is perfect! Very close the beautiful 'Pass' where the bay meets the Gulf and some great restaurants and shopping. There is a Publix and Walmart across the street as well as an Alvins and other shopping.
The luggage carts are scarce-so you may want to pull your car up to the elevators and grab one or wait for one. Someone commandeered a shopping cart from Walmart. We used it several times to move luggage as that was all that was available. We found if we waited by the elevator a few minutes the luggage cart would finally appear. :0)
There are several luggage carts over at the B building too.
We had a great time! The condo was absolutely wonderful!
We will be back for sure!
Forgot to mention: there is a hairdryer in the master bath, washer and dryer and boogie boards and beach toys.
Thanks, Sandy, for a terrific family vacation!
