Walking into Turquois Place, it was easy to see why it earned the number one spot.  The resort is luxurious and offers guests a home away from home.  The resort has 3, 4, and 5 bedroom residences, all with plenty of room for guests to spread out and relax.

On a recent trip to Orange Beach, I had the opportunity to stay in a 3-bedroom unit at Turquoise Place.  It offered 2400 square feet of living space and unparalleled luxury on the beach.  Let me take you on a tour of the unit where I stayed.

Each bedroom had its own bathroom.  The master bathroom was spa-like and had a large glass-enclosed shower, a jacuzzi tub, a double vanity, and a large walk-in closet.

The Kitchen and Dining Area

The gourmet state-of-the-art kitchen had a gas range and SubZero refrigerator.

The unit had a dining table that seats eight, as well as bar stools at the kitchen counter.  Plus, there was a dining table outdoor so that guests can dine out on the balcony while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.

Near the kitchen was a wet bar with a wine refrigerator to keep your bottles at the perfect temperature.
