Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautiful three bedroom condominium is located at The Whaler a small quiet complex of only 27 units on the beach in Gulf Shores. The beauty of this recently renovated gulf front unit is that all three bedrooms have a view of the beach. The Whaler has a large beach front pool that is just steps off the sparkling white beach with plenty of areas to lounge in & out of the sun. It’s a short distance to the waters edge with plenty of places to eat within walking distance (e.g. The Hangout).

This unit has three large bedrooms and 2 baths with a beautiful balcony accessible from both the living room & master bedroom and is located on the third floor making it just as easy to take the stairs as the elevator. All floors are ceramic tiled. The master bedroom has a king bed and the attached master bath has a granite countertop, hammered copper sink and jetted tub. Not only is there a window overlooking the Gulf from the master bedroom but there is also a sliding glass door for access to the balcony. The second bedroom has a queen bed and also has a window facing the Gulf. The third bedroom has twin beds and because the building is at an angle, the window in this room also affords a view of the Gulf. Both these bedrooms share a bath with granite countertops & a hammered copper sink. The modern stainless steel kitchen with granite countertops boasts all your traditional appliances.

There is not a better place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or to have a cocktail watching the sunset than off the balcony of this unit.

About Dia Napolitano

My husband & I grew up in New Orleans and have spent many vacations on the beach. It's always been a dream of ours to own a place on the beach where we can retire to in our later years. There is something so peaceful about hearing the surf of the Gulf.

Dia Napolitano purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dia Napolitano chose Gulf Shores

We love Gulf Shores because of the beautiful white beaches and that it is driving distance from our home in New Orleans.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique in that all three bedrooms have a view of the Gulf. We have the front of the building so one room gets the sunrise while the master bedroom catches the sunset.

This property is our place of choice. The decor and setting are very nice and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We come to Gulf Shores when we need to get away for a few days or even week. We have tried several other places, however the Whaler #3D has become our hands-down choice of condos to stay. We will continue to come here because we know what to expect and have never been disappointed. Dia Napolitano and her husband are the actual owners and are very accommodating. She and her husband are nice people to do business with directly.

Going through a real estate agency has its drawbacks and usual frustrations. Where fewer people are involved, there are fewer things that can go wrong. Not so here, because this couple has an investment in this condo personally.

We are always more than pleased with our stay, nearly centered on the strip and well situated in proximity to many attractions, yet offering separation from the dense crowding at the attractions.

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay. It was close enough to everything, but not in the center. The view was amazing! The kitchen had everything we needed to have home cooked meals, on the nights we just wanted to stay in. Even though the condo itself is an older unit, everything is kept up, and clean. We will definitely be back!

Great holiday with the kids

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days leading up to New Years at the condo. One day was in the mid 50's and girls 11 & 9 frolicked in the water (they had a blast). On the colder days we stayed inside and played board games which this condo has plenty of. We walked to the Pink Pony for lunch one day & to Papa Rocca's one night. The condo is great because it is right on the beach and walking distance from so many places. Surf Style has added a Market (grocery store) just a few blocks away. There is a major beautification of Gulf Shores taking place & I look forward to my next trip.
