  • Great multi-family house

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had two families of four staying at the Orion House and we fit perfectly. The house is situated perfectly: lagoon access on the back; and a short (1 min) walk to the gulf on the front. Additionally, the lot is on a cul de sac so traffic is minimal. We rented 4 sea kayaks so the lagoon side was perfect for boat launches. As well, we fished off of the back deck almost every evening (lots of little fish) and threw in the crab pot for fun (only 2 large crabs - but they were cool to look at). <br/><br/>As mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen has nearly every item you could think of (and several others that you were not thinking of). There is also a charcoal grill on the upper patio which we used almost every evening and it comes with very serviceable grilling utensils.<br/><br/>We had intentions of eating at local restaurants each day but found S&S Seafood (~1 mile away) to be too good to pass up. 3-4 times we picked up raw seafood (mostly shrimp) and cooked them on the grill or steamed them. S&S isn't fancy but the shrimp are amazing. Plus, drinks are a lot cheaper at home and everyone can relax and not worry about driving home. We also caught a ton of fish on a charter trip () and had mahi mahi and snapper on the grill. Unbelievable. We also went fishing at the pier several times which was great: hammerhead sharks; bull sharks; jumping sharks - and lots of fish (you can buy equipment there for what you expect to rent equipment: $50).<br/><br/>While we appreciated the huge TV and Direct TV, we only had it on for ~20 minutes the entire week (pleasantly). Overall, this was a great trip and everybody (ages 12-50) had a great time."

  • The Perfect Vacation Home!

    "Our family has vacationed all over the Gulf Coast from Orlando to Grande Isle, and Shrimp on the Barbie was the consensus #1 vacation rental to date. Mark and Barbara are very attentive and their home was immaculate and perfectly situated between the Gulf and Little Lagoon. Our 13 and 16 year old boys love to fish. The kayaks allowed them to get to some great fishing spots in the Lagoon. We even had their redfish for dinner one night. They also caught all kinds of fish from the pier. The beach is only a brief stroll across the street, and we had an entire 100 yard stretch of beach to ourselves. It was a refreshing change from Destin where people are stacked on top of each other for miles! The location of the home is ideal since we were away from the crowds but only 5 minutes from the bustling downtown area of Gulf Shores. We are already planning to return next summer."

  • Great house, location, and price!

    "This was our first family trip to Gulf Shores. Keith was very helpful with honest recommendations of where to go and which places are kid friendly. The neighbor, Bruce, was also very helpful and friendly. The house is beautiful and spacious. There was plenty of room for all six of us. It was well worth the price. The beach was not crowded at all, like it is in front of all the condos. We would definitely stay here again!"
