Property description

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 with a hot tub 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.
The house is located in a quiet residential cul-de-sac and we try to maintain a family atmosphere. We will not rent to persons under 25 years of age. We live close by and check it frequently for any details that may need our attention.

This fully-equipped, 2600 square foot, two-story house has all of the conveniences of home. Cable TV in all the rooms and a great open living space. 2 Story Great Room with loft overlooking area. Mother-In-Law Suite with den, bedroom with 2 twin beds and access to full bathroom. Nice laundry room located on main level. The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and snack bar. There is a gas grill on the deck off of the living area for a BBQ and cooking the fish that you catch.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a large walk in closet, an adjoining loft (with a futon and day bed) and bathroom with a garden tub/jacuzzi and California shower. Deck with hot tub is adjoining master bedroom. The other upstairs bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoining bathroom with a combo shower/tub.

2 upgraded central a/c units with thermostats on main level and upstairs. Ceiling Fans in all rooms for added comfort.

Gulf Shores small town atmosphere makes your visit to the beach comfortable and easy. Spend the afternoon browsing boutiques, gift shops and galleries, or hunt for name-brand bargains at local outlet stores. Tanger Outlet Mall one of the South's largest factory outlet malls, with over 120 stores is only a few miles away in Foley, Alabama. North on Hwy 59 is Target with a new shopping mall opening soon.

WalMart and two grocery stores are close and there is a convenience store just 1 block from the house. The world famous FloraBama is just 10 minutes away down the Beach Hwy. The Gulf Coast Zoo, that was featured on the Animal Planet network is just minutes away. Great fun for all ages.

Gulf Shores is just 1 hour away form Mobile and Pensacola and 2 hours from Biloxi/Gulfport with casinos and shows. There are many festivals throughout the year and always good entertainment 365 days a year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
