Owner info

About the owner: Kayak fishing in Little Lagoon - this huge speckled trout was released back into the lagoon as soon as the photo was taken.

Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
The property is surrounded by old growth, sand live oak and it's like being in a tree house -an isolated bit of 'old Gulf Shores' that's close to everything and we love it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Facing south to the gulf, the house is fronted by Stanton Creek which connects to other canals leading to Little Lagoon. The creek is a natural wetland, excellent for bird-watching and we love to canoe and kayak in the lagoon, which is a great place to fish or just watch the sunset. We're just a 5-minute walk to the public beach and 'The Hangout' in Gulf Shores, which makes this a great spot for the annual Shrimp Festival and we have a private balcony for the 4th of July Fireworks.
