Perfect for us!
Perfect for us!
We spent a week in Gulf Shores for our 25th anniversary. This house was perfect for the two of us with room to spare. It was a beautifullly decorated and had everything we needed. Keith, the owner, and Bruce, the neighbor, were wonderful and helpful. We will stay here again the next time we come back to the area. Thanks for making our trip that much more special!!

Great family time and memories
Great family time and memories
Just returned from Gulf Shores and, as usual, experienced a great time in Gulf Shores. My husband and I have stayed at Keith's the past three years in February. We love Gulf Shores and it's quiet and small town atmosphere. So, this year I brought my girls and their kids down for a week and we had a wonderful time. The weather was amazing, in the low 90's and a beautiful breeze on the beach. The house was perfect and Keith was accommodating in every way possible. The jelly fish and sting rays decided to show up on the last two days so we didn't get in the ocean too much but that didn't keep us away from the beach. Tried a new restaurant, Mikee's, and food was great. Also ate at The West Beach Grill a few times, convenient, reasonable rates and good food. Thanks, Keith, for a great family getaway for my girls and their little ones.

1st Trip to Gulf Shores
1st Trip to Gulf Shores
Myself & my 2 siblings had a great vacation! We were completely pleased with the beach home & enjoyed our stay for the first time in Gulf Shores. The house is close to everything & we still had our own privacy! :) The house was clean & had everything we needed! The neighbor was very helpful & resourceful! Keith, the owner emailed a few times to be sure all was well with us. We would recommend this house to anyone! Thank you for renting to us & we hope to do it again some day!

Long weekend !!
We had a great time and loved the house. So close to beach and very comfy. The location is great and we tried to book again in July and Keith was totally booked out. We need to book sooner next time for we are coming back !! Keith also makes it so easy to check in and check out. House has great decks and views of beach and lagoon from great deck.

This was a wonderful vacation home for my family. It is right next to the beach, which made it easy to walk home and make lunch and/or dinner then go back to the beach. As a busy family, we really enjoyed having a place to relax and still be near all of the fun stuff. Keith is a very gracious host, and he works hard to make sure all questions are answered quickly and thoroughly. We used many of his recommendations while we crammed in as much fun as possible to our week. The shells at this beach are the best in the area. We had several other friends located around the Gulf, and ours were the best. :) I would definitely recommend this home to others. We are a family of five and everyone was satisfied. We added a cake pan to the kitchen and a couple of other things as we needed them for our Easter dinner. :) We only had two small things--the local TV stations didn't come in, and the wifi was scattered. However, we didn't come to be plugged in so this did not bother us (or we would have called Kieth--I am sure he would have hooked us up).

Owner response: Christina, thanks for great review. Yes if you had called I would have told yow how to convert over to local channels off of Direct TV. We are so glad your family enjoyed their stay and we are proud of our little spot of Paradise too !! Thanks for cake pan also ! Hurry back to see us when weather a bit warmer but we both know it was much better than Minnseota !! Take care.

We had a wonderul time at Keith's place in Gulf Shores. The house was very nice and so close to the beach and good eating places and the views were great. The info Keith gives on places to eat and things to do are such a help if you have not been there before. It really helps in they used to live in the area and know all the non tourist traps as he describes them. Our family has asked if we could come back when the weather is warmer so they could enjoy the water which in March is a bit cool. Thanks keith for beong so kind and yes the rental bike place was perfect and we really enjoyed the bike rides. Can't wait to ge back !!

Close to everything
Close to everything
Two parents and a college freshman stayed a week in March; lovely, immaculate house and SO convenient! One parent golfed every day, one parent hit Bodenhamer Rec Center or the state park for Zumba, yoga, walking and biking. We were able to manage with just one vehicle because we could so easily walk to the beach and bike up and down 182. The house is charming, perfect for a small family. Both bedrooms are pretty spacious, but the master bedroom upstairs is a vacation destination in its own right with walk-in closet plus reading alcove with cozy couch and overhead lighting. There was also a TV in that bedroom, but with so much to do so close, who could bear to sit and watch TV? The guest bedroom was large enough to accomodate a traveling masseuse's table without rearranging the furniture. Unexpected bonuses included the perfect views from two levels of porches facing different directions (lagoon & beach), a padded swing facing the beach on the ground level, and the inside stairway between ground and first living area floor, with plenty of secure overnight storage space on the ground level for bike and golf clubs. The circle drive made for easy in and out trips, and the corner lot is easy to find (pizza, bike, massage deliveries) --plus it provides additional solitude and privacy during the busy season. The closest neighbors seem to be permanent residents and are very quiet. The owner was incredibly helpful both before and during our stay, and we'll be back as soon as we can. If you usually stay in a hotel rather than renting a house, read your contract carefully for the consumable supplies you need to bring. Forgot something? Waves is a nearby convenience store with coffee, soap, etc. King Neptune's and De Soto's were the very best seafood restaurants we visited and Lulu's is great for family eats and fun. The state park has many free activities and their golf is half the price of the other courses, but Craft Farms is so good, we golfed there twice! Contact Beach Bike Rentals for an inexpensive but durable bike rental that includes free delivery and retrieval.

Perfect location on beutiful Gulf Shores. January weather was surprising pleasant - great winter getaway for northerners. House is wonderful - nicely updated. Front porch and side deck are both spacious with soothing water views. Nearby shops extremely convenient.. Everything as advertised including the raves about Bruce the neighbor as well as the extra accomodations made by Keith the owner. Highly recommend and look forward to returning!

Keith, we had a great time. The weather was beautiful and the house is in a great location. We felt like it was the best vacation we had ever had on the Gulf. Thanks for making the rental so easy and accommodating. We would recommend this to anyone. My brother and his girl friend had a restful time but they were more impressed with the white beaches and biking trails and the friendliness of the people. Bruce was a big help. Thanks for renting to us and we hope to do it again. Joe and Gail.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: WE are the Mitchell's from Birmingham. My wife is an administrator for school system and I am retired. We love our home but with her work we don't get to use it as often as we would like. So our loss is your gain. We are very picky about our renters so we can keep the place as nice as possible so all can enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
We bought our home for my wife because she is a beach nut, and she just loves the short stroll across the street to her own private sunbathing spot. Also my entire family comes down as often as they can. So book early! And it's a large group as you can see!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have great neighbors , need an egg and he's got one. Sunsets are breathtaking also !!
