                    We were very happy with our stay at the Big Orange Sunset. It is a comfortable walking distance to the beach as well as a number of bars and restaurants in the area. The rooms were clean and there was plenty of room for 12 adults. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Gulf Shores!

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, age 55+, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                    Pros:The listing description was accurate. The photos reflected the actual house. The property was cleaned and very well maintained. Location is very close to the beach as we walked to the beach (about 5 minutes) and it very close to the Water Park and Zoo, (we drove because of the kids and knew that they would be tired coming back, but it's in walking distance. Also, some of us walked to the souvenir centers and eating places. So, therefore, the property is in a very convenient and close location to attractions. I would definitely recommend this property to others as well as rent again. I would recommend that the blinds be replaced only because of the early morning light coming in since we would go to bed very late. :) Also, there were black ants in the front bed room and on the counter top in the kitchen. BUT this was not an issue to bash the review only to inform the owners. OVERALL we felt like we were home away from home. We were very impressive upon entering the house. THUMBS UP for this property. Great job owners! NOTE: the highest rating that I was allowed to rate property was average, however, it is far greater than average.

                    This was our second time staying in Big Orange Sunset, It felt just like home when we unlocked the doors. We had several adults and children and everybody was comfortable and all the adults had privacy time. We really love this home and we will definitely be booking a third vacation in the future if the lord say the same... We would like to thank you for welcoming us into your home. Thank you for changing the full size bed on the 1st floor to the room with the full bathroom. It was a great accommodation for us. We truly enjoyed all the amenities that came with the house!!!!!!

                    Such a wonderful place to vacation with a big family! Room for kids and adults alike! Close walk to the beach, clean, spacious... What more could you ask for on your first trip to Gulf Shores? Thank you all for letting us stay at the Big Orange, it was a memorable trip.

                    The distance from the beach, while very easy to reach, was understated. Overall this was a great value. The owner may not be getting his value for the cleaning fee. I am sure that it is difficult to get rid of all of the grains of fine white sand, but you could feel it on all of the floors if you were barefooted. It would also have been nice to have some soft soap in at least one dispenser when we first arrived and the dispenser in the master bath was broken. The location was close to everything and overall the property was very nice.

                    Nancy, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip. Your house is so beautiful and much more than we could have imagined. The location was GREAT! It is probably the best place to be in Gulf Shores. Again, thanks for all your help and hope we can do it again. Best regards

                    I had a great time at the Big Orange. The bedrooms are all of generous size and everything is new and clean. Just drive up, park the car and have a great time. Beach, night clubs, restaurants, and shopping are just a walking distance away. When you are too tired to go out, the kitchen is fully equipped and there is a big screen t.v.. I highly recommend this vaction rental for you next vacation, family reunion or holiday!!!!!!!!!

                    Just to let everyone know, I make it a must to visit this beach house at least twice a year. I love it here and I will never stay anywhere else. I have 2 kids and it is so nice to be so close to everything, if they want to go ride go-carts then it is almost next door and if they want to go to the beach then it is a 3 minute walk across the street. I think the best part is the fact that you have complete privacy for you and your family to enjoy together day or night and there is a big screen TV to watch for the days you want to be lazy and also a TV in every bedroom for the kids to watch while going to sleep. I feel completely at home whenever I stay here and I can not wait until my next stay in March. 5 Stars for the Big Orange Sunset and to the owners who do such a great job making sure that this place is always in perfect condition

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We built the Big Orange Sunset in 2007 with dreams of sharing the property with families from all over the country. Gulf Shores Alabama is hidden gem on the Gulf Coast and a great place for families and friends to come for a care free vacation.

                  Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                  The Big Orange Sunset is located in the Heart of Gulf Shores Alabama. We couldn't have picked a better location for family entertaining and fun.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The subdivision our house is located in has deeded beach access which goes in by Sea Winds condos. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, or if you've got a lot of stuff to take you can drop it off in front of Sea Winds/ Sea N Suds, then park across the street behind Alabama Surf Style.
