Property description

This neat vintage cottage has been in our family since it was built in 1980. We have VAULTED tung in grove ceiling in the enormous living room with 2 ceiling fans. Colorful hardwood floors give this home a warm “at the beach” tropical feeling.

The master bedroom has a king size bed. It takes up the entire upstairs and has a bathroom. Downstairs bedroom #1 has two double beds and bedroom #2 has twin beds. There are 2 sleeper sofas in the living room. The separate dining room has a large cypress dining table. This is a NON-SMOKING home, but is allowed on the large balcony that opens from the living room.

Your pet is welcomed with opened arms. Simply check the box to pay the non-refundable, $100.00 pet fee. There is cable TV in the living area and master bedroom. The home has Wi-Fi. There are ceiling fans in every room except the fully equipped kitchen.

The large deck has unobstructed views of the Gulf and Lagoon. There is an approx. 400 foot walk to the beach. Less than a mile from shopping and restaurants..

This home has been in my family since it was built in 1980. I have recently purchased it from my mother. It is a work in progress, but very comfortable. I appreciate any and all feedback.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My grandparents built this house in 1980 after hurricane Frederick swept their first house away. In 1990, they decided to rebuild. My mother purchased the house from them and it was moved from its original location to its current location. In 2014 my two children ( 10 and 7) and I purchased the house from my mother in order to preserve all of the memories from childhood and have a place where my siblings and their families could reconnect.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
My Grandparents began traveling to Gulf Shores from Baton Rouge when their children (5 of them) were very small. It was a much longer journey in those days, but they thought is was well worth it. The beaches were white, the water was clear and there was no city noise to distract them. The first house they built was one large room with several beds. Everyone was comfortable, and it was the togetherness that they craved. They said it was like camping (we now call it the camp.) When that house was swept away by hurricane Frederick in 1979 (incidentally, Frederick was my grandfather's name and is also my son's name) they rebuilt bigger and better and right on the beach! With a quickly growing family of grandchildren and great grandchildren, they knew that 3 bedrooms was not enough. In 1997 they built Lagniappe 2, a beautiful, 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home in the place of Lagniappe 1. Lagniappe 1 was purchased by my mother and moved to its current location. They had to take down all of the power lines between two properties and put it on a flatbed. My mother rented the property and kept dates available for my siblings and I to come stay. In 2014, it was too much for her to manage any longer, so I purchased it from her. My goal it to make as many improvements as possible and preserve the memories of my childhood. I also meet my siblings and friends down here as much as possible. I grew up here from the age of 4 until I left after finishing college. My two children and I currently live in St. Louis, Mo . We hope that you will make as many memories as we have and will come back year after year to visit this beautiful beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located just steps from a liquor store, ice cream parlor, convenience store, restaurant and steamed seafood carry out.
