Homes, Blue Lagoon house description

Consider a roomy, comfortable beach house instead of a crowded condo. Not your average rental, our home is fresh and contemporary and feels like a retreat to the West Indies. Centrally located in Gulf Shores. Escape to your own private paradise as two of the bedrooms are master suites with private outside decks. Enjoy your morning coffee off the deck of the front master suite with a sunrise ocean view enhanced by the sounds and smells of the beach or soak in the jacuzzi tub before retiring for the night. The second master suite gives you the pleasure of witnessing the sunset over the blue lagoon reflecting in the distance, from it's private deck. We also have a smaller less expensive villa for rent. VRBO #217361 check it out too.

There is a cool, comfortable community pool with umbrellas and chairs just steps away. Maybe you will choose to swim in the surf, sunbathe or walk on the beach which has a boardwalk just one block from the house. Try fishing, crabbing, canoeing, or kayacking from the community pier in back of the house. A state park is just two blocks west where the fishermen gather at sunrise and fish until their coolers are full.

Few homes in the area offer the luxury and ambiance for this price. Adults can enjoy the privacy and relaxation of 2 master suites while children play or sleep in the downstairs kid friendly bedroom with their own TV & DVD. Everyone can get together to eat, play games or watch a movie in the modern granite kitchen and living area combined. Or you may choose to dine on the large outside deck off the kitchen. Lovely furnishings, wood, tile, and carpeted floors provide clean contemporary living to enhance every moment you spend indoors.

The floor plan is perfect for two families. This is our dream beach house and can be yours for your vacation week. We will consider allowing a pet.



Keywords: Classy, comfortable beach house, located central to so many beach activities. Walk directly across a two lane road to the beach.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: Hello from Jeanie and Marty. We have been married for 40 years, and have 2 children and 7 grandchildren. We just retired in April '13. Our permanent home is in Cincinnati, Ohio near our son and his family. Our plan is to be in Gulf Shores as much as we can in the winter and fall. Family, church, friends, traveling and having fun are the priorities in life for us today. Hope you come for a stay in Gulf Shores soon.....

                          Why the Owner Chose Homes, Blue Lagoon:
                          We looked at many beach areas for atleast 10 years. Our hope was to find a place where we could buy a beach house to live in someday. Gulf Shores is the place for us, it meets all of our needs. We are so happy owning a place in Gulf Shores, because it has wonderful beaches and is so family oriented and not overcrowed. The guest who rent our beach house, help us to realize our dream of living at the beach atleast part time someday.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our beach house, Blue Palms is a great value, lovely home, and so cental to many beach activities. There are many advantages to renting our house. We are across a two lane road from the beach, so rental is much less than beach front. The interior of our house is decorated with very nice furnishings that are modern and comfortable. You have nice views from the front deck and views of the lagoon from the back decks. Having a pool in the community is a plus. Being able to use the lagoon and fishing pier and walk to a public lagoon, fishing area are great. We are in a quiet area, yet close to the action in Gulf Shores.
