About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-17)

You will think you're on your own private island in this large five bedroom, three bath beach house. Have the best of both worlds with your own private beach on the Lagoon in the back yard or walk mere steps across the street to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The front decks offer unobstructed views of the Gulf and the rear deck overlooks the Lagoon. There is a water view from every room in the house.

The lagoon is perfect for small boats, kayaking and jet skiing. There is plenty of parking. You will also enjoy fishing and crabbing. This 2700 square foot home has two complete kitchens, making it perfect for two families traveling together.

The beds have changed since the initial listing was made but VRBO doesn't seem to have a way to let you change this. There is one bedroom with a king-sized bed, 2 bedrooms have queen-sized beds, one bedroom has 2 full beds and one has 2 twin beds. There used to be 2 sleeper sofas, now there's only one, but with 2 of the twin beds being replaced with 2 full beds, it sleeps the same number of people. There are still 3 day beds in the den that are suitable for children. They're not quite as big as a twin bed.

Crazy Crab is located in a quiet, single-family, residential area, about 5-6 miles west of the main intersection. You'll be within a 10 minute drive to the restaurants and attractions, but you'll feel like you're far from the hustle & bustle. There's very little traffic and never any congestion. It's about 4 miles from Waves, West Beach Grill, a convenience store and a seafood market.

Year Purchased: 1994

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
I was on vacation in Gulf Shores and fell in love with the beautiful beaches. I wanted to buy a house there and this house offered so much. The location was perfect, it has the best of everything with the lagoon in the back yard and the gulf in the front. It's very private and the house is large enough to accomodate a large group.
