Live the life that Jimmy Buffett wrote about and escape to the sugar white sands of Gulf Shores, Alabama! Just 2 blocks to the beach and enjoy the view of the Little Lagoon from one of the two covered decks (one off of the master bedroom and the other off of the living area) and covered patio on the ground level. Walk out to the pier in the backyard and fish, jet ski or swim in the quiet cove. Away from the hustle and bustle of high-rises, located in a quiet cul-de-sac area just off the beach. Pet-Friendly. Great for family activities.

About Gary Billingsley
We have lived in the Gulf Shores/Foley area since 2001, moving here from Illinois. We own an oil and gas exploration company, with the main office located in Gulf Shores. Pat is also a retired R.N.
Gary Billingsley purchased this House in 2002
Why Gary Billingsley chose Gulf Shores
Pat's Parents vacationed in Gulf Shores for over 20 years and we vacationed here as much as we could. When the opportunity arose that we could move here. We did and absolutely love it. Our neighborhood is a hidden gem. Quiet friendly cul-de-sac but near the beach and entertainment. We have always had dogs and know how hard it can been to vacation with your fur babies. That is why we made our house pet friendly so our guests can enjoy their vacations without leaving behind part of the family. evolution
What makes this House unique
This house is like living on a lake but walking distance to the beach. It is the best of both worlds. The house has some gorgeous leaded and stained glass windows for that extra touch. The main room is 2 stories with aloft overlooking it that gives the house an even more spacious feel. The bedrooms are quiet and private. So relaxing to sit on one of the 2 decks or patios overlooking the Little Lagoon or sit out on the dock and fish.

Beautiful and Spacious! Close to everythingtge :)
Wonderful place to stay. Very spacious plenty of room for all 10 and a half of us. Minutes away from everything to do. Store within walking distance. Everyone loved fishing and catching crabs off the dock in the back yard (specially the kids). Hot tub on the third floor deck was awesome to relax in and enjoy the view. Located in a quiet community with very nice people. Owners are very nice and quick to respond to any messages and fixed any small problems we had immediately. We had a great time!!
Thank you to the Billingsley's :)
Close to the beach and my family loved it there
The house was huge and clean. Loved how it's pet friendly ( the poochies loved it there too)
It was clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. It was a super close walk to the beach and other lil small shops. The people who lived around the area were nice and really helpful too.
Perfect for my family
This Beachhouse was great! The children enjoyed the dark in the backyard off of the lagoon and caught tons of little fish so they were entertained for hours! It's very convenient to everything in goal shores. The house is spacious and there was plenty of room for all nine of us. There was a lighting issue in the kitchen and a couple of other issues that I made the owners aware of and they handled it very quickly! They were very friendly and nice to deal with. We will definitely plan to stay in this property again in the future.
