We are located in West Beach, a narrow stretch of land bound by the Gulf to the south, and Little Lagoon to the north. You'll have great views of both. In addition to the normal joys of our sugar white beach, a block and a half to our west is the 'pass', where the Gulf feeds Little Lagoon. The pass offers great fishing and an area that is perfect for kids to hunt for hermit crabs or watch the heron and pelicans in action.
Other Activities: rent a sea kayak, parasail, charter a fishing boat, take a dolphin cruise
Golf: We have 9 signature courses nearby as well as the Gulf State Park Course. You have a nice range of courses located 3-15 miles from West Beach so you can easily try them all!
Year Purchased: 2007
About: We are a family with school age children. We bought this bit of sand with a beachview with a dream of building a place where big extended families like ours could get everyone together. We didn't know at the time that life would lead to our living in Gulf Shores where we now manage our vacation rental homes and those of a number of our neighbors and friends.
Why Homes, Single Family: We had our duplex When Pigs Fly which is just a few hundred feet from the lot on which we built Dream Big. We love this stretch of family-friendly West Beach where we are just a couple of miles from restaurants & shops, but in an area with just 4 rows of homes between the Gulf on the South, and Little Lagoon on the North.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Owning When Pigs Fly, and based on our own growing family which at that time was 18 (grandparents, parents, children), we knew it was hard to find a place where everyone could gather. We could have our family on one side, and the cousins on the other side. We put in the things we like or needed for our family--spaces for the kids, bedrooms that worked for parents with small children, a big pool area, grills, etc.
