Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10) Gulf Shores Alabama Beach House

Years ago, Down The Hatch was the name of the place the couple who own the house met. When they found this house on their favorite Gulf Shores beach, they christened it by the same name that held so many good memories. Hopefully Down The Hatch will be a place that is the start of happy memories for you as well.

Come enjoy 4 spacious bedrooms, 4 baths, a gracious great room with a large harvest table, and porches that perch just steps from a beautiful sugar-white beach. Oh, and you have a 100' stretch of gorgeous quiet beach. Summer weeks must be Sunday to Sunday.

The Main Floor King Master has a private bath. The second bedroom on the main floor has a pair of twin beds. There is a second full bath, and a laundry, on the main floor.

The top floor has a second king master with a private bath and a beachfront porch. The second top floor king bedroom has a hall bathroom

Of course we have WIFI.

Great porches offer amazing views of Gulf Shores sugar white sand beaches. This quiet area of West Beach has a single row of beachfront homes, plus a single row of homes on Little Lagoon. It is a wonderful, quiet area of the beach but it is less than 4.2 miles from the heart of Gulf Shores.

You may recognize the house from its former name Beach Stop. If you liked Beach Stop, we think you'll love its updates and reincarnation as Down The Hatch.

Reviewer Comments:

Fun was had by all! House well stocked with kitchen and BBQ gear! Pleasant surprise of full soap dispensers at every sink, including the kitchen sink! House was the perfect size for our group! Only downside...washing the towels before we left, but it worked out just fine (haven't had to do that at other beach houses)! Great location...close to town, but away from the crowds! We rent Down the Hatch again!

We have rented Down the Hatch for several years now. I have never had a bad experience. The house is decorated nicely and the location is perfect. We were lucky enough to have great weather during our stay and see dolphins every day!

Reviewer Comments:

Highly recommended!! We chose to come to the Gulf Shores to get a away from the beach traffic in Florida. The Down the Hatch location is just perfect, it is located far enough down the shore that it has a private beach. We felt like we had an entire ocean to ourselves for most of our vacation. It is also close enough to town that we were able to make multiple trips to the grocery store that is only 10 minutes away. Not to mention the views at this site are spectacular!! The intercostal is so close to you on the north side of the house and obviously the ocean steps away from the back deck. My kids were able to set up a sand play area right at the bottom of the back deck which was perfect so we did not have to worry about them being near the ocean if we were making breakfast/lunch etc. The house itself was plenty big for 3 families with small children, large dinning room table and big kitchen to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We will go back again!!
