  • A Great Week at Gulf Shores

    "Our week at the beach was really super. We lucked out with perfect weather and the waves were up for the first 3 days. The location of the beach house is simply the best on West Beach Blvd. You have to watch the kids while crossing the street because there is beach traffic, but once across they can dash for the surf. The public access is just across the street and the water is less than 50 yards away. Having the backyard pool really made it with the grandsons. We spent days on the beach and evenings in the pool and the kids loved it. Owner provided sheets and towels, in-house washer and dryer, and TVs with DVD players were really great. This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and it was everything that folks recommended to us. We'll be back again and we know where we want to stay."

  • Very Nice!

    "We are four retired couples, each requiring our own bedrooms and private baths. This property filled the bill. It has 6 bedrooms, four upstairs, two of which are Gulf view and two street view. Three of the upstairs bedrooms have king size beds and one street view bedroom has three bunk beds perfect for children. The two downstairs bedrooms were both street view and had king size beds. During our stay, the worst rain storm in decades came through Gulf Shores and the whole southern Gulf coast and dumped more than a foot of rain on us within 24 hours. Streets were flooded and the houses on both sides of us had several feet of water under them in the parking area. Pleasure Key's raised concrete pad parking area under the house stayed high and dry. We had no problems from the storm whatsoever. During our stay, the owner was very helpful and courteous. This house has recently been upgraded with repairs and painting and was in very good shape. We would recommend this house, right on the beach, for a variety of renters."

    "Great value for an excellent house. Two stories, great bottom floor layout, with breath-taking views of the sunset and lagoon. We got some really beautiful photos from the back of the house. We also fished from the back dock and caught multiple fish. It's a quick walk to the beach and there is also a small grocery store in walking distance. Vince was extremely friendly, helpful, and understanding with us with any issues. I would definitely recommend this house and the owners to any of my friends and family. We look forward to coming back next year."
