                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: My husband, Dan, and I worked hard for many, many years raising our 2 beautiful children. When we finally reached a point in life where we didn't have to worry every day about how we were going to pay the bills, we went on a weekend vacation to a little place called Gulf Shores, AL. We stayed at a hotel on the beach and one starry night as we walked the beach hand-in-hand, we looked at the houses near our hotel and talked about how wonderful it must be to own one of those. Later, we met a fantastic real estate agent who took us to see all the houses on the market. Sandbox was the first house we saw and after a grueling week of looking, we both wanted to go back to that cute house with the incredible porch! Dreams do come true!

                      Why the Owner Chose Other Gulf Shores Properties:
                      Hopefully, guests will read about us, visit, and see for themselves why we chose the Sandbox above all others!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      My husband, Dan, knew right away that Sandbox was going to give us what we wanted most of all---unobstructed views to the East for glorious sunrises and to the West for the most brilliant sunsets on Earth. Between sunrise and sunset there are the dolphin shows and the most unbelievable starry nights you can imagine. On nights with a full moon or even 'almost full' you can watch Stars on the the waves catch the light of the moon. Add to all of this the incredible seafood restaurants just minutes from the house and the most comfortable beach house to finally lay your head for a few hours of sleep and guests soon want to re-book same week next year and start counting the days!
