Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: When our children were growing up we made an annual pilgrimage to the Gulf. We vacationed in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama for years and then as the kids grew up and moved off to all corners of the country we looked for a way to bring everyone together at least once a year. This is when we decided to purchase a home in Orange Beach, not only for our reunions, but to share with other families and friends looking for a place to come together and make lasting memories. We were fortunate to find a beautiful home that is close to great fishing, wonderful Gulf-front beaches as well as back-water adventures leading to white sandy beach islands and all the fun amenities and activities of the Gulf Coast life. We are excited to share it with YOU!
Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
We love Orange Beach and think it is the best kept secret along the shores of the Gulf. The slower, more casual lifestyle is so refreshing and the people are so welcoming and friendly.
The Unique Benefits at this House:

There are also many miles of protected water and bays to explore with small boats, pontoons, and kayaks. Enjoy adventures leading to white sandy beach islands and fun restaurants and bars like Tacky Jack's, Cobalt's, and Pirates's Cove Restaurant and Bar. The beautiful, private in-ground swimming pool is a great place to relax and perfect your tan while the kids swim and play! The pool can be heated if you desire. The covered front balcony or the covered pier area offer great places to gather and be out of the sun. There is lots of room for parking cars & boat trailers as well as 2 covered boat slips.

Restaurants and cute beach bars abound and there is always fantastic seafood being served at most establishments. Kids have a multitude of activities available to them from swimming and shelling to theme parks, aquariums, mini golf, and more! Adults love golf, fishing, swimming, shopping and dining...or just chilling and reading a great book! Friendly locals and a slower pace makes Orange Beach the place to be. A fabulous home base that is peaceful yet close to all the area's exciting activities makes Blue Bayou your 'Home away from Home'!
