                  House is located on the 'quiet end' of the beach in Gulf Shores and is conveniently located near local restaurants and activities for all ages to include a water park, amusement center, pier fishing and much more. It sits between the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the bay so there is surf and pier fishing available for the fishermen. If you are a golfer, there are golf courses available very close. Add to all this the convenience of the close proximity to the beautiful white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico for walking, jogging, relaxing. Conveniently located to easy access to the Mobile Ferry and Pensacola Airport. Convenient to shopping and children's activities such as water and theme park.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My husband and I purchased our dream beach home after returning from a heavenly seven years in Heidelberg, Germany. We had always loved the beach and dreamed of owning a beach house. We finally realized our dream just two short years before Les was no longer with us. I am Rose Marie Campbell and I retired from the USMC where I served at Quantico in the Food and Hospitality Division. I have an extensive background in hotel management, sales and marketing, and catering after spending 15 years in the hotels in Las Vegas, NV. Les had a PhD in Information Technology and was in the I.T. Division at Maxwell/Gunter AFB at the USAF Air University. We are originally from Illinois in the Midwest. We love our home in Gulf Shores because we enjoy the quiet, beautiful white sand beach, fishing, great seafood, relaxing, and good ol' Southern hospitality. Our beloved family are only a few hours away by car or plane and we wanted a place where they could join us and enjoy the beach with us. We know you will love and enjoy our home as much as we do. Come soon for a great vacation!

                  Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                  We chose our home in Gulf Shores on the quiet end of the beach because it offers everything we were looking for at a beach location; friendly people, great fresh seafood, close proximity to our home, one of the most beautiful beaches in the US. We enjoy walking and biking and find very few places where we can do this safely while also enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors...we have it here. We are close to Mobile, Pensacola, Montgomery, and Atlanta airports for easy access so our friends and family can join us at our beach home. Unlike many of the beach resorts we have visited Gulf Shores offers all the typical beach happenings without excessive traffic and huge influx of people.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on our deck watching and listening to the surf roll in. Unless it is a long, peaceful stroll down the beautiful white sandy beach. We enjoy taking our meals on the deck and sitting in the evening to catch the awesome sunsets...nowhere are they more beautiful than here. Our dock and the Little Lagoon are great places to catch fresh fish and relax also. The 'pros' tell us they catch all varieties of wonderful eating fish. We like to sit on the beach, do a little surf fishing and enjoy relaxing with a good book. We are excited to learn more about the 'seasons' of the Gulf and the beach. There is always something new and different out there. If you are a bird enthusiast, you won't be disappointed and if you enjoy the Gulf and surf, we often spot dolphins playing just off the shore (don't forget your binoculars). Les was a pelican enthusiast and there seem to be a plethora of them here, especially at Billy's when we go to pick up our fresh shrimp. If you want to take a break from cooking, it is just a short drive to great restaurants featuring all the delectables from this region. There is something in this area for everyone -- places for the teens to hang out with their friends and interact with others, amusement park and water park for the little ones, and a public beach for girl or guy watching. Our lives and travels have taken us to many places, including Las Vegas, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and France, but this is definitely the most beautiful, relaxing place we have ever found. Come check it out for yourself!
