All Bedrooms have ceiling fans and flat-screen televisions with either built-in or separate DVD players and have been thoughtfully decorated and furnished with your vacation in mind.

The home's spacious upper level features lots of windows and french doors that open to the Balcony overlooking the Pool and the Bayou. The tropical furnishings are casual and selected for your comfort and enjoyment. The fully equipped kitchen has Corian countertops, stove, refrigerator with in-door ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, a huge amount of cabinet storage and an eat-at counter for at least 12 people. All regular small appliances are included as well as extras such as a waffle-maker, slow-cooker and popcorn maker.

The two spacious living areas are complete with comfortable tropical furnishings, huge flat screen TV’s with DVD players and music systems as well as a Ping Pong table, Playstation 2 with games and Electronic Darts! 'Blue Bayou' also features a convenient elevator that opens to either the Kitchen or the Master Suite.

There is a huge shaded upper balcony with ceiling fans, a grill and a great view of the Bayou. From the concrete sunning patio you can watch your kids playing and swimming in the pool or see fish or occasionally dolphins jumping in the Bayou. In addition to the lower covered decks next to the boat slips there is a cute waterfront 'shack' complete with countertops, running water and a refrigerator and adjoins the HUGE charcoal grill. This area also offers a nice gathering place in the shade and a casual outdoor dining table and umbrella next to the Bayou. The waterfront also features two covered boat slips that will accommodate up to a 30 foot boat.There is a fish-cleaning station on the pier with a sink and running water. Clean your fish and then cook them on the grill! There is lots of parking space for cars and trailers in the large driveway and garage.

'Blue Bayou' is minutes by boat to the Gulf of Mexico. Orange Beach public beach access and the public boat launch are both nearby and you can walk to some restaurants and bars. There are also many miles of protected water and bays to explore with small boats, pontoons, and the 2 provided kayaks, complete with paddles and life jackets. Enjoy adventures leading to white sandy beach islands and Pirate’s Cove Restaurant!

Grocery and convenience stores such as Publix are very close and the outstanding Tanger Outlet mall is a thirty-minute trip by car. There are all types of shopping, family activities, movies, and live concerts at the Wharf complex. The towns of Foley and Gulf Shores offer additional nearby entertainment and shopping experiences with outstanding restaurants in all directions. You may want to venture further to explore Pensacola and Mobile, each about an hour away by car, or why not visit historical Fort Morgan which is about 30 miles west.

We think you'll find that Orange Beach is the best-kept secret along the shores of the Gulf. From the beautiful white sand, swaying palms and gorgeous ocean waters, to plenty of restaurants serving delectable seafood and icy drink concoctions, to limitless choices of fun activities and the serenity of a more casual lifestyle, Orange Beach promises to be your favorite vacation destination...and 'Blue Bayou' your favorite vacation home away from home.

              Owner info

              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:
              'Blue Bayou' is a spacious and comfortable, fully furnished and beautifully decorated single-family vacation home that sleeps 12 to 15! The home faces the Bayou and features an elevator, a private pool and 2 covered boat slips. The Gulf is only a few minutes away by boat and features fabulous fishing while the best boat ramp in Orange Beach is located close by on Marina Road. 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 in-ground swimming pool is a great place to relax and perfect your tan while the kids swim and play! 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. There is fabulous shopping nearby and the Tanger outlet mall only about 30 minutes away by car. 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'!
