My favorite house
"I have stayed at this house now probably 12-15 times in the last 4 years. Only now getting around to posting a review.
The house is located on the lagoon side of West Beach blvd, so you get the best of both worlds. Nice relaxing time on the lagoon in the back, or a day at the beach just across the road. The lagoon in the back is usually about a foot or 2 deep sometimes for hundreds of yards out. I always bring my dogs and the lagoon is the perfect place for them to play. It is their favorite spot on earth.
Every day the sunset on the lagoon could be a postcard. The beach is almost always empty as it is privately reserved for the handful of houses. There might be someone 100 yards down but more often than not you have the entire beach to yourselves, especially on weekdays.
The owner Anne is always accommodating and the house is always in good shape and has everything one would need for an amazing time. Me and my friends always look forward to the summers and our getaways at 'the Crab House.' I hope to be coming here for many years to come."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The rental was the best we have had in several years of searching for a good spot. We have already put down a deposit for next year at the same place. The beach is just steps away. the house was well furnished and supplied (our only point of dissatisfaction was the toaster. Overall a very comfortable place to be. It would be nice to have a recliner, but I understand why that might not be a good thing to have in a rental. In summary, we would give Our House a 9.5 out of 10."

"We had a fantastic stay in the Sweet Dreams house! We rented out the full house and loved it. The owner was very nice and extremely helpful from the beginning of the booking process all the way through to our check out time. Sweet Dreams has a great location with a beautiful stretch of beach directly across the street and plenty of restaurants and other attractions very close as well. Also the private pool area in the backyard should not go overlooked. Its a fantastic area to have some privacy and still enjoy the beautiful weather."

"We spent our spring break here with two other families. We had 6 adults and 4 kids ranging in age from 4 months to 11 years. We had plenty of space to spread out and we weren't crowded at all. The location is fantastic! We usually stay in Orange Beach which gets very crowded on the beach. Here we were able to find a spot on the beach and spread out at any point if the day. There was no need to get out early just to secure a spot. We would go to the beach at our leisure and never had an issue. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed, and the accommodations were pretty clean. We had a couple of little issues but the owner was easy to reach and the matters dealt with promptly. The only negative, which could be a positive, is that it is kind of secluded. We aren't good planners and didn't make a grocery list. We are the type of people who just like to run to the store and get one item. The owner did tell us in advance how far the nearest grocery store was but we didn't listen. I would definitely rent again but next time have my grocery list together and just make one trip to the store. It's not so secluded that you can't drive into Gulf Shores for a meal or entertainment, which we did often, but we definitely don't want to make a couple trips to the store in one day.
Thanks for renting to us. We really enjoyed it!"
