Welcome to The Turquoise Tide! This gorgeous 3300 square foot brick home is custom built by a local Southern Living builder in the award winning and magazine featured Tannin Village neighborhood. Quaint Tannin features views of the Gulf of Mexico, Tannin Lakes, and the Gulf State Park. The low traffic brick streets of Tannin are just a quick stroll to the white sand beaches of the Gulf, which is directly across the street from Tannin. Please take advantage of the two beach accesses across the street from each Tannin entrance. You can choose to walk across the street or drive over and drop off. There is also a very nice public beach pavilion with bath houses, shade, & food 1 mile away. There are lots of beach options depending on your preference! If the beach isn’t your thing, feel free to hang out at the Olympic sized Tannin Community Pool with a great sand area where kids can play and everyone can enjoy a relaxing time away from the crowds at the condos! Guests will also enjoy fishing, running, or biking in the serene village of Tannin and in the Gulf State Park.

Why Katie Rudemiller chose Orange Beach

We recently purchased this beautifully built and decorated beach home in the unique neighborhood of Tannin in Orange Beach due to it's prime location near the beach, adjacency to the State Park with many opportunities to bike, run, & fish, low traffic brick streets where the kids can ride bikes and play, private deeded beach access across the street, large upscale swimming pool with sandy areas for the kids to enjoy, and the picturesque architecture and quaint relaxing feel! We look forward to the many memories we will make here and are very excited to share this beautiful beach home with other families to create wonderful life-long memories with their families and friends as well!

What makes this house unique

We think you will love our home's designer decor and upscale finishes! The open floor plan on the first floor will be perfect for your large family gatherings! The bedrooms with upscale and comfortable bedding will be perfect for your relaxing vacation! The sun room with ocean views will be a great spot to read your summer novel and rest. You will surely enjoy your vacation in Tannin where you don't have to wait in line to ride an elevator full of people, walk through parking decks to get to your car, or wake up early to save a spot at the crowded pools!

Wonderful Taste of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and delightful homeowners! This location at Orange Beach was exactly as described. The home is wonderfully decorated, the beds are so comfortable and all the amenities made it feel like home. The kitchen was stocked with all you needed to make meals and all were in working condition. The tub was great for soaking and the bikes were an added bonus. The beach was great and the neighborhood was fun to explore. The nature preserve was an excellent walking place. All in all everything was terrific. Katie is very responsive to questions and excellent in correcting even the most minor issues. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful, Comfortable, Clean & Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families (nine guests total). We were all very comfortable and impressed how clean & easy it was to feel at home. The bikes provided were a big hit. The walk to the beach was a quick 4 minutes, the only down side, you have to cross a main highway. We didn't have any issues with it though. The pool is a great amenity & just around the corner from the house. Katie is very pleasant & helpful. I highly recommend this vrbo. We really enjoyed the house and area. Thumbs up for the Flying Harpoon :)

We had a wonderful time! The beach house is beautiful, and accomidated all of us well!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and spacious. Its located near the beach and a beautiful nature bike/walking trail. It's also located near shopping and dining. The "Hangout" was awesome -great food, great drinks, and great service! We loved the attention to detail, Katie, our homeowner was awesome about responding to any and all of our concerns. The bikes were a lovely bonus to a very pleasant experience. Thank you for promptly helping us with air pump for a low tire so that all 5 of us were able to bike ride on the nature walk/path. I wish we could have stayed longer!!! Thank you for helping to make our "girls trip" an awesome experience.

Total relaxation - we'll be back soon!!

  • 5 of 5

Property was everything we wanted. Quiet and peaceful community living, the conviences of a luxurious home versus a condo (especially front door parking), easy access to the beach, an olympic-size pool for a refreshing swim or dip in the afternoon (only had 3 additional folks in the pool while we were there). Can't wait to return.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The home looks exactly like the pics if not better! This has been the best vacation home I've rented. They provided a ton of kitchen and cooking utensils, which is a huge plus for me. The beds were super comfortable, and the location was perfect. Katie is incredibly easy to work with and very helpful. We're already looking at dates to rebook next summer.
