A Great Escape!
A Great Escape!
Wow! Heron Landing was everything that we had hoped for! The home is directly across a quiet two-lane street from the beautiful beach (the view of which is unobstructed from the home). Everything you could possibly want is already there- kitchenware, a grill, board games, etc. The rooms are decks are large and everything was very clean and comfortable. The location is also perfect- it is a very short drive to the nearest grocery store (2 minutes) and the "hangout area" (5 minutes). This leaves you close enough to make everything you want to do quick and easy, but just far enough to avoid any traffic or noise. Plus, the owners are an absolute pleasure to deal with (which always makes a difference!). I would love to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Owner response: I appreciate the guests who choose to stay in my home while enjoying the beautiful beach and Gulf. It is important to me that they have everything they need to make their stay perfect and enjoyable. It is always great to hear that they were pleased and I appreciate the positive comments and recommendations. I look forward to each of my guests return on their next visit to the beach.
Peaceful, quiet location with a great view of the gulf.
Peaceful, quiet location with a great view of the gulf.
My husband and I rented this home for the month of February, and we took my mother along. We liked the home and it looked just as pictured. We thought it was very comfortable,homey, and clean, but my mother did have trouble with the stairs. The spacious bedroom with the king bed was great, and we enjoyed the private balcony off the bedroom. It was nice to have the view of the gulf and be within walking distance. We walked on the sand every morning, and everyone we met was very friendly. It was very peaceful to sit on the bench at the dock and enjoy the lagoon, also. RoseMarie, the owner, was very nice to talk with, and even had a welcome basket filled with goodies and wine upon our arrival. We definitely recommend this home to others, and the rent was very reasonable compared to the homes right on the gulf. We loved the weather once we got past the first few very cool days, and my husband was able to golf at different locations many, many times. I liked the close proximity to the outlet mall. The seafood that we purchased at Billy's was divine, and breakfast at Big O's was the best! It was a great month, and we can't wait to return next year.

In-Laws Get Away
In-Laws Get Away
The accomodations were very close to perfect for our situation. Our parents/in-laws needed a get away. 3 bedrooms with their own bath, a private pier behind us within a short walking distance for our parents, and the gulf across the street for us, could not have been more perfect for all. Although you are not directly on the gulf beach, it feels like it. The only issue for my in-laws was the gulf building specifications requiring lots of stairs. Naturally, that applied to all home rentals and we didn't want a condo. My husband and I took our bikes and we didn't have to worry about traffic on this end of the beach. We also liked being away from the crowds but still being within a short distance to everything. Great views of the gulf from the upstairs bedrooms and each balcony. The paved drive to the lagoon made it easier for our parents to walk to the pier and the pier worked well by providing plenty of seating. The home was clean, comfortable and everyone was pleased with the beds, slept great. We also enjoyed the TVs in each bedroom, gave privacy when someone wanted to relax in their own room and watch something different. Neighbors were friendly and helpful, enjoyed getting to know them and they were always kind to our parents and provided fishing tips. My husband, father and I enjoyed long walks on the beach searching for sea shells and enjoying the views. Local fish markets were the best, they would cook seafood for you to take home and enjoy. The owners were wonderful to work with and we would certainly recommend their home to friends.

Great Girl's Beach Weekend
Great Girl's Beach Weekend
I just returned from an awesome Girl's weekend at this home. The view was lovely, and there was ample space for all 10 of us (even when the weather kept us inside & away from the beach). We will definitely be returning next year! I was a little concerned about staying on the west end of the beach away from a lot of the action, but found it was a quick drive to anywhere we wanted to go & we didn't have to share the beach with hundreds of others. I also found the home's owners to be very friendly & accomodating. You can tell they really love their beach home & take good care of it! I can not say enough nice things about this home & know you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

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!
