Situated between Oyster Bay and Liitle Lagoon in southern Alabama's Gulf Shores, 55+ Oyster Bay Village is a leafy, low key town home (some say condominium) community. It was built between 1984 and 1997.
Each of the 35 or so single level buildings has two homes, and floor plans range in size from 1,343 to 3,192 square feet. Most residences have two bedrooms, two baths, and an attached one car garage. A private patio, vaulted ceilings, and built-in appliances are common. Upgrades can include sky lights, bay windows, new kitchen cabinets, and brand new countertops. Exteriors are fiber cement and come in pastel colors.
Prices begin in the mid- to high-$100,000s. HOA fees cover everything except electric, but there is an annual insurance assessment. Please verify this information with a Realtor as it is bound to change.
Inside the Village clubhouse, residents enjoy a swimming pool, billiard tables, a catering kitchen, a library, as well as rooms for games and exercise. A patio, a gazebo, and a woodworking shop are just outside clubhouse doors. The community is wheelchair accessible.
A 1/4 mile path extends from the northern end of Oyster Bay Village to the Intracoastal Waterway, where a pier and a gazebo await for dolphin viewing. Docks and access to the Gulf of Mexico are across the street to the south.
Oyster Bay Village is near a handful of golf courses, including Craft Farms Golf Club, a 36-hole Arnold Palmer-designed course that winds through trees and along Cotton Creek. To the northwest, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge beckons. Its 7,000 acres of coastal wetlands are open to paddlers, bird watchers, and beachcombers. The city of Gulf Shores manages recreation centers, a Mardi Gras parade, movies in the park, and a national shrimp festival.

Why Choose a 55+ Community?
Most people who choose to live in a 55+ development are looking for a sense of community with other people of similar backgrounds. Many of these developments are gated and guarded, adding to a sense of security. Often the homes are low maintenance or "lock and leave," giving owners the freedom to do things other than mow the lawn, shovel the snow or replace the roof. The biggest draw is often the amenities, ranging from lavish clubhouses to activity directors and championship golf courses, making some developments akin to country club living (or summer camp for adults). While 55+ communities are not for everyone, they continue to be a popular choice for many people.
