There’s something about Lei Lani. From it’s early beginnings in 1984, Lei Lani is a piece of Heaven, sent here on Earth to give locals and tourists alike a taste of fun and tranquility. Lei Lani, planned in 1983 and finished in 1984, was developed by Thomas Nonnenmacher of Waterview Developments. Lei Lani on the Gulf-side fought many legal battles in the early ‘80s because of the Lei Lani’s dune setback line and the beach mice habitat, but the building fought through opposition and succeeded in becoming a new condominium that would lead way for beachfront development. It’s presence today proves that Lei Lani is a blessing and a miracle, surviving the tides and the hurricanes Lei Lani is a condo every person who travels to the Gulf Coast must meet. It’s developer, Thomas Nonnenmacher of Mobile, also developed Sunswept, The Sands of West Beach, Lani Kai, Seaside Beach & Racquet, Gulfview, Wolf Bay Villas, and Ole River. His iconic condominiums possess the eclectic and alluring architectural style of the 1980s, a modern and unique design that defines the culture of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Lei Lani consists of three charming buildings--The Gulf Front Tower, The Mini Tower, and The Village.


Lei Lani Towers (Gulf-Front) is a 7-story concrete tower displaying a sleek shed-roof style with splattered, Spanish-styled stucco, 2 elevators, an indoor and outdoor pool, and each unit (1, 2, or 3 bedrooms) offers spacious Gulf-Front Balconies. The end units offer wrap-around balconies with each bedroom having its own bathroom, a useful and articulate space-design for owners as well as vacationers.


The Mini Tower is across the street on the Ole River property side and it is the junior form of the Gulf Tower, as it is a concrete, 3 story building with undercover parking, wood railing accents, and views overlooking the beach as well as the tennis courts and Ole River.


The Village building is also across the street on the Ole River property side. This precious 2-story wood-frame building offers undercover parking, studio, 1, and 2 bedroom units, and views overlooking Ole River and the beach (from across the street.)


The Lei Lani complex is located on a quiet part of Orange Beach, on the east side of the Pass, and also has it’s own stoplight so owners and vacationers can safely cross the the beach or the river. Lei Lani provides first-come, first-serve boat docks for the boat and fishing lovers and owners can have pets. Because Lei Lani sits closer to the beach than most other buildings, the cool ocean breezes and the soothing sound of the waves crashing onto the sugar white sand reinvigorates the soul. Spending hot summer says tanning and dipping into the pool, dancing to Madonna’s “Burning Up” in the spacious living room, laughing with friends and family late at night on the beachfront balcony, and having the gentle lapping of the shore lull you to sleep is an experience only at Lei Lani. Watching the graceful and abundant wildlife-- the pelicans, crabs, sandpipers, herons, and ospreys--is a joyful and serene view of what Heaven truly is. The iridescent sunrises and sunsets convey the colors and brightness of life. The neighbors and friendly faces await you at Lei Lani, welcoming you to the beach life. Come to Lei Lani and experience this feeling first-hand. There’s something about Lei Lani, a feeling of fun and tranquility, like no other... Lei Lani is the real slice of Heaven in Orange Beach.
