It’s Not a Secret Anymore!

Vacation rental company, Vacasa, just released its annual report ranking the 10 best places to buy a beach house in 2022. The news was published on March 10, 2022, in Travel + Leisure Magazine. The winner was a place we haven’t been able to stop talking about – it’s part of our stomping grounds: Gulf Shores, Alabama!

Perdido Key, the location of Krystal Key Beach Resort is 12 miles to the east of Gulf Shores and the drive along this emerald coast is one of the most beautiful in the world. Of course, we know that and now the rest of the world does, too.

The article explained that condo or rental property owners can expect to make up to $56,198 in yearly rental income. From our experience, the annual income after expenses for our neck of the woods is much higher. Krystal Key Beach Resort, with its 4-bedroom floor plans, luxury amenities, and high-end appliances and interior finishes, will be among the highest-earning condos along the northern Gulf Coast.

The median home sale price in the Alabama gulf coast area is around $402,905, significantly lower than other vacation destinations in the U.S. Gulf Shores/Perdido Key is the perfect combination of affordability and natural, unspoiled beauty. Our 30-unit development is on a pristine, 200-foot stretch of sand that will be private, and available only to our 30 units’ residents and their guests.

If you have been putting off your investment decisions, it is time to take another look at Krystal Key Beach Resort. We recommend you call us before the rest of the country snaps up the very last 4 condos that remain. The two penthouses are available. Both feature a total of 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 3,950 interior square feet, and an additional 996 square feet of balcony that wraps around two sides of the building. Two interior units remain, both of these units are 4 bedrooms, 4 baths with 2300 square feet of interior space, and 660 square feet of balcony space.

Join us on the Gulf Coast and enjoy our uncrowded, relaxed atmosphere. We would love to welcome you home.

Significant Developments Coming

construction site2022 is already shaping up to be a big year for Krystal Key Beach Resort!

All existing reservations have been converted into contracts, which means the loan process can begin! Once our construction lender confirms our construction budget and the background check on principals, the loan will go to the committee to underwrite and fund the loan. With the loan date set, construction contracts with sub-contractors can be signed, and construction can begin.

And the news of progress doesn’t stop there! With our Land Disturbance Permit, our team has been hard at work. Already, the location has been leveled, filtration fences have been erected, sand fill is being brought in, the construction trailer is on-site, a five-point survey has been ordered, and a new test piling has been contracted. Bids for construction are going out now, and all permits are in hand. We’re scheduled to break ground this month, February 2022, and completion is estimated within 14-18 months.

With the start of construction approaching the horizon and only five units left, this is a great time to take advantage of our pre-construction pricing. Don’t miss out on these luxury condos situated on 200 feet of beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Perdido Key, Florida, 18 miles from Pensacola. Units will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with an unobstructed view of the gulf, oversized balconies, granite countertops in the kitchen and bath, and fiberglass entry doors with electronic locks.

Fall in Love With the Beach!

Krystal Key Beach Condominium

Fall is one of the best times to be a condo owner here in Perdido Key, FL and FOUR MORE of our units have SOLD!

As the locals say, September and October are the best times to visit the beach!  Why you may ask? Well, less crowds, slightly cooler temperatures and plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy.

Weather in the Florida Panhandle is mild and gorgeous around this time of year. Start your day in the mid to low 60s and enjoy a stroll in the sugar-white, soft sand that stretches for miles in front of Krystal Key Beach Resort. Don’t worry, it’s still beach weather here in the fall, just a lot less crowed.

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy open-air dining, shopping, and wine tasting along the Gulf Coast. Many areas, such as The Wharf in Orange Beach offer seasonal wine tasting festivals, small concerts and enjoyable shopping. Don’t forget to enjoy Yoga on the beach as another way to start your day.

After the peak summer months when rentals are usually at full-capacity, owners come and enjoy their condominiums. This is also a great time to offer long-term rentals to snow-birds and others looking to get away from the cold winters in other parts of the country. Rentals can still earn an income during this time of year, and a good one.

We have exciting updates to share with you! Check them out below!

Krystal Key Beach Condominium

Exciting things are happening in the design and floor-plans of Krystal Key Beach Resort and we want to share them with you.

Rick Phillips, Qualifying Broker of Advantage Real Estate Gulf Shores and developer of Krystal Key Beach Resort, shares some insider news and the latest updates to the brochure and design of the units.

The luxury floor-plans at Krystal Key Beach Resort are changing to offer two master suites with unobstructed Gulf Front views and additional private/secure elevator lobbies. Rick says “The floor-plans are the best design on the Key designed by award winning architect Henry Norris of Henry Norris and Associates, Pensacola, Florida. The corner units have a Master Suite on the Gulf and another Master with a view of Old River with a private balcony. The interior units have TWO Master Suites, each with a direct unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. The balcony views, rather than being hindered by aluminum pickets, will be glass for clear, panoramic vistas. The interiors have the best use of space with kitchens and dining areas side by side and living space more efficient than any I’ve seen. Special features include better use of cabinets, pantry and a wet bar with sink and mini refrigerator.

The luxury amenities that will be offered to all guests of Krystal Key Beach Resort are extensive with plenty of high-end features. Rick states: “All owners and guests will have access to the very best amenities any project on the Key has to offer including an outdoor pool with lazy river and spa, a zero-entry kiddie pool with shooting water feature and a boardwalk over to the beach complete with a rinse-off shower. There will be a ground floor indoor heated pool with a therapeutic jetted spa section including separate changing rooms for men and women. There will be assigned personal beach lockers for each unit. On the Penthouse/Top Floor Level is the most luxurious Fitness Center to be found anywhere. It will have a direct unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico while you enjoy your workout. The fitness center will also include a wet and dry sauna and cool down lounge that has a view of Old River. Finish with a shower in private Men’s or Women’s dressing rooms.”

Owners and guests will be able to retreat to Krystal Key Beach Resort in Perdido Beach, FL and relax in luxury. There is still time to invest in this real property, but Rick is urging people to act fast. 15 of the 30 units are claimed and prices are predicted to increase as fewer become available.

What makes Krystal Key the best development on the Key? “Along with direct unobstructed views of the Gulf Mexico, these are the most space efficient floorplans ever designed for either full-time or vacation living with the best amenity package on Perdido Key.”

Vacation rentals in this area of the Unites States have gross income potential up to $110,000 to $130,000 a year for owners. When investing in beach front property you want to make sure to look for a fantastic rental agency as well as offer unique features in your unit.
