About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

The Wavewatch is a beautiful beachfront house just 1 mile west of the main intersection in Gulf Shores. Upper and lower decks attached to the living quarters and a large deck surrounding a 16 x 30 pool give plenty of room for sunbathing and relaxing. The house is directly on the beach with spectacular ocean views. It is one of the premier properties on West Beach.

The Wavewatch is a duplex with each self contained unit designated by “West” and “East” sides. Each side contains 6 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms on three floors. There is also covered parking for two cars and off-road parking for an additional two cars on each side. Although both sides are very similar, they each rent through separate listings on this site and the remainder of this description is specific to Wavewatch West. Wavewatch East can be found at listing #148690

From the covered parking area the ground floor may be accessed via the main entrance or the pool deck via an exterior stairway. The ground floor interior features an entry with a large coat closet and a bedroom with bunk beds and an additional single bed.

The main floor features a beautiful open living area with a den/entertainment area, dining area and large kitchen. This level also includes a full bathroom and two bedrooms, each with queen-sized beds. The newly remodeled kitchen includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an island-style breakfast counter plus an enclosed pantry.

The top floor contains the master suite, and two additional bedrooms. The master suite has a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, private bathroom and a private deck overlooking the beach and pool. The second bedroom on this level has a queen-sized bed; the third has a full-sized bed. The hallway on this floor provides access to the third bathroom and the laundry area.

The house comfortably accommodates groups of all ages and is appointed throughout with all of the comforts of home in an up-to-date style. This section of beach truly affords privacy but is only minutes away from the attractions and entertainments of Gulf Shores.

We are a family owned dwelling catering to family groups. We do not rent to Spring-Breakers, Batchelor, or Bachelorette parties.

Let me say that we have stayed in many different rental properties over the years and this house was a dream! What made me feel the most comfortable was the fact that I was able to contact the home owners if I needed too. We had our whole entire family go with several young kids including a 4 month old baby that actually fell asleep right before we had to checkout. This was stressful for my sister ( who is a new mommy) because we had a full day of traveling home that day and she knew he needed a good nap. We called the home owner and asked if we could stay just a little longer to let him sleep and she allowed us to stay until he woke ( which was just about 30 mins longer than checkout)!!! Talk about customer service!!! On top of that, the house needed to be ready in the next few hours for the next family coming in but the home owners said we could stay anyway. The next time we come to gulf shores on a big family trip, we will be staying here for sure. Let me add that the pool guy came TWICE in the week we were there to check the pool levels (and such) and to me, that is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this home if you are looking for a perfect family vacation. Plenty of room and the AC works FANTASTIC, which is a big deal to us because we have had AC issues in other beach homes in the past. We actually brought our own portable AC unit to use upstairs but it NEVER left the car because the house was plenty cool enough. These little things might be silly to some but to me and my family, it made all the difference especially since it can be hard to travel with as many young kids that we had. Thanks you Crosson family for the wonderful memories you helped to create!

House, Pool and Beach are great

  • 5 of 5

Really nice house. Plenty of room for the 10 of us and could have slept 2 or 3 more. The beach was not crowded at all. It also helped that our neighbors in the East side were so friendly. The pool was very nice, too. Big enough for both sides of the house to use.

Amazing beach front property!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view from the deck to the pool to the beach. Great location right on the white sand beaches of Gulf Shores with your own private beach access! There is a grocery store and restaurant just across and down the street from the house you can walk to. Lots of room for everyone and plenty of parking. Home owners are delightful and helpful. They will ensure you've got everything for your stay and made excellent recommendations. Make sure you visit Ft. Morgan civil war fort and then take the ferry across mobile bay to visit Ft. Gaines civil war fort. Amazing location and people!

Great House, Great Weather, Great Week

  • 5 of 5

From the booking of the house to receiving our deposit check within a few days after returning home, we could not have asked for a better fall vacation. My family always goes to Gulf Shores in the summer but could not work it out this year. We had time in the fall and it was great. We saw dolphins almost every day and the second day they put on a show for us worthy of Sea World. They played, jumped, twirled, and flipped direction behind our house for 45 minutes. The sand was cool, the water clear, and the beaches not crowded. By far the best time to go. The house was perfect; well equipped kitchen and great location, just 1 1/2 miles from the T.

My family stayed at Wavewatch West this summer for our family vacation. This is a second to stay. We loved it. It is right on the beach with everything you could ask for. We love the location. We are within an easy drive to any place we wanted to go. We had 5 little boys, ages 3,2,2,1, and 1. They loved the beach, but soon got tired and then we enjoyed the pool which is just outside the door. Would definitely recommend this to anyone else. In fact, we have already booked for next summer.
