                We just got back from a week at this fabulous house on the beach. This house is exactly as pictured, the beds are super (everyone had a bed, not a sofa sleeper or a couch), the view is unbelievable, the kitchen had everything we needed, (plenty of dishes and silverware) everything worked, the weather was wonderful and the beach was superb! We got to experience 7 moonlight nights with the last an almost full moon. The house was spotless when we arrived, the beaches were not crowded, the bedrooms are large and spacious. One of the AC units went out after a short but nasty electrical thunderstorm. I called the maintenance number and he had a repair man out that had it fixed within 3 hours. There were no other issues. I only mention this to let you know that they were very responsive. Some member of our 15 person group participated in the following local activities: the waterpark, the racing cars, parasailing, shopping at the Foley outlet mall, and of course, swimming and beaching. We all had a wonderful time and would have loved to stay another week. We also enjoyed the dolphin shows in the early morning hours. We cooked and ate in every meal. It was a pleasure working in this kitchen. Plenty of gadgets, utensils, appliances and pots, pans, bake ware and mixing bowls. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and to you if you are reading this and thinking maybe. Go for it. It is amazing! I recommended this property for families with small children with the exception of children under 2. There are several wide and open staircases. While they add to the beauty of this home, very small children require constant supervision. We had a 1 year old toddler and he had to be watched as he headed for the stairs every time he was on his own.

                The photos of this house were almost too good to be true, but they were correct. We took our children and our two grandchildren for a relaxing stay at Water's Edge. The house was well maintained. The house was very well furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. There was also a generous amount of linens. We enjoyed all the amenities on offer. It was fabulous to have a house right on the beach. One of the best features was the key pad which enabled all of us to enter the house without a key. We really enjoyed this feature as well as the elevator. Made the unpacking and packing much easier. Any questions we had were answered in a friendly, timely manner. We want to go back!!!!!!! We can recommend this house without any qualms..

                Our expectations were exceeded in this lovely vacation home. It was very clean and had every kitchen appliance and convenience you could ask for and more. The accodomodations were wonderful and the view was breath-taking. It was so nice to be just steps away from the beach. I was so impressed that I'm planning on taking my extendeded family down for a family getaway.

                Our group had a wonderful stay at Water's Edge. The home is very spacious and comfortable. Most importantly it was very clean. We have professional cleaners in our group who were impressed. Unlike most rentals, everything in the home worked and was as pictured. The weather was sometimes uncooperative which provided a good excuse to appreciate the beach view from inside.

                Wow, this home not only met but exceeded our expectations. Our family now has such joyful memories of our Spring Break spent here in this wonderful Gulf Shores home. This beautifully-appointed stead had every amenity you would possibly desire ranging from free Wi-Fi connection, a kitchen with every appliance or cookware item you need (including an ice maker, and all nicely organized, I might add), two charcoal grills downstairs, a washer/dryer, beautiful views, direct beach access and plenty of space for the family to spread out. And being able to bring our small dog was an absolute joy - he is part of the family, after all. We particularly enjoyed the open kitchen and living space. And every room in the house was so incredibly comfortable - having the choice of 3 master bedrooms with king beds was a significant consideration in our choice of a beach home and we were so pleased to have that option here. In addition, my mother and aunt were able to use the elevator (although, sometimes I suspect, possibly just for fun :) We also enjoyed watching dolphins in the surf from the patios each day. We highly recommend this home for family gatherings and any other event were you aim to have ever-lasting memories. The owners have done a fantastic job here.

                My husband and I stayed in this house for five nights with our three adult children, their spouses, and our 3 year old grandson. Whoever said that the pictures don't do it justice was correct. It is simply beautiful. All the beds have good mattresses with quality bedding. Everything works correctly and it was very, very clean. Clean is always a top priority for us. The kitchen is super well equipped, with even a kitchen aid stand mixer, waffle iron, etc. Our daughter, who is seven months pregnant, was thrilled with the elevator. She was able to come in from the beach, rinse off their three year old under the house, and ride the elevator to the third floor to their room. We were so excited to see so much marine life while there. We saw dolphins every day, sometimes throughout the day, but always in the mornings, swimming close to shore even. We loved walking down to the cut where the tide goes in and out of the lagoon, and watching the fishermen. Even got to watch a few sting rays there one day. We would recommend this house to anyone, and would love to stay there again. The only bad thing about our stay was having to leave!

                We brought our entire family, my mom, my mother-in-law, my uncle, our sons, their wife and girlfriend, our grandson, and our dog! What a fabulous place to stay and have enough room for everyone to be as together or as apart as they wanted to be. Everyone had a wonderful time...the house was huge, well maintained, clean, modern, and had everything that we could have wanted. Stephanie (owner) was great to deal with and responded to our every need or question. We would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a "care free" vacation, and it's location is close to everything, the beach is amazing!!! We will be returning, hopefully later this year or next, and will be bringing friends!!

                Our 8 days with 11 people were spent here over Christmas week. Our family consisted of Grandma, 2 couples and children 21, 20,18, 16, 14, and 8. It was simply wonderful. Everything in the home is well kept, clean, in working order, and beautifully decorated. Every bed is so comfortable with excellent bedding right down to the bunk beds. The upstairs master suite is a dream, and having 2 bedroom suites is perfect for more than one couple staying together. This is not something you typically find. The house is much bigger and prettier than the pictures can portray. The location was wonderful. We spent most of our time right at the house and on the beach just steps away. We watched dolphins jumping in the ocean from the porch. There are lots of great restaurants and shopping very near by. None of us wanted to leave and all we can talk about it is how much we want to go back. The owner is very pleasant and accommodating. The keyless entry is a great idea. Don't wonder if this is the place to stay- just do it. You will not be dissapointed.

                Had a surprise birthday party at this gorgeous home for a great long weekend!! This home was very tastefully decorated, and not your typical beach home. The pictures that are posted do not do the home justice. We had 16 adults and all were able to sleep very comfortably and no one had to sleep on an air mattress. This home is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing by the beach. The homeowners were simply great. I would highly recommend this home and will stay here again.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We purchased this home as a second home to enjoy with family and friends when not being enjoyed by those seeking the ultimate beach experience. We now live in Atlanta but grew up on the Gulf Coast and always dreamed of finding a perfect place on the water. We found it!

              Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
              Gulf Shores, Alabama beaches are the most beautiful beaches on the panhandle because they not only offer wide white sandy beaches and clear water but also because they are not completely overrun and over-developed. Also, the charter fishing out of both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is world class and you can expect to go out on a charter once and have enough fish for your entire family for the whole week of your visit.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property is located on the beach yet Little Lagoon is just a short walk away and is a great place to enjoy water sports or just relax on a kayak. If the tide is right, smaller boats can launch in the lagoon and in a matter of minutes be in the gulf.
