About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

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 East. Wavewatch West can be found at listing # 116269

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 twin bed with trundle.

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 one with a queen-sized bed. The newly remodeled gourmet kitchen includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large bar with seating 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 as well as the bedrooms.

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, bachelor, or bachelorette parties.

Best Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We went to the beach with friends to celebrate New Year's Eve, and this house was perfect! We had a great time and had plenty of space for all of our children. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and had a beautiful view of the Gulf through the sliding doors. The home was clean and in close proximity to restaurants and shopping.

Even though it was December, my children were dying to use the private pool. We will definitely have to return in the Summer months, so that they can enjoy the pool.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

We recently returned from a last minute trip to Wavewatch. What a gem! We were right on the beach with a great pool as well. Our large family could spread out in the spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. The unit was pristine and well-maintained. The kids were thrilled with the wi-fi and modern tv and stereo and having tvs in all bedrooms. Restaurants and entertainment were close, but we rarely wanted to leave. We returned to our lives rested and refreshed. We have already reserved this bit of heaven for next summer!!!

I know you can't see details in photos. However, I have never been more disappointed in a vacation rental! This house was very dirty and needed repair. The bedding was stained, shower curtains moldy, cabinet doors in the kitchen stood wide open, toilet paper holders falling off, and the floors were filthy! There was no extra toilet paper. The towels were stained and smelled moldy. The deck and pool were nice! The kids loved it and the closeness of the beach. . Oh, I forgot that the Wifi and satellite TV didn't work.

I just wanted to say THANKS for sharing your little piece of heaven with our family. Our vacation in June was by far the best family vacation I have had. The house was wonderful and the memories made prices.

The PERFECT beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here July 14-19 of 2010. Talk about a little piece of heaven. Wave is a beautiful beach home. It is immaculate and very spacious. We had a blast! Having it's own pool is a major plus for anyone with children. Our children spent all their time in the pool. They loved it and so did we. The beach was beautiful. We had a wonderful beach getaway and will recommend Wave Watch to everyone we know. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

My family rented both sid...

  • 5 of 5

My family rented both sides of Wave Watch in the summer of 2008. My family took one side (grandparents, aunts/uncle, cousins) and my husband's family took the other. It was perfect. I thougth going to the beach was great, but going to the beach with your own pool is even better. At the time we had 5 kids, 6 years old and under. They could only take the ocean is small doses, and it scared some of them. They were perfectly happy playin in the pool all day.

The location was perfect. It was on the main drag, but in the middle of privately owned rentals. You don't have to share a beach with thousands from a high-rise facility.

The house was immaculate. It felt so homey and comfortable. We had 11 on the East side and we were not cramped at all. And no one had to sleep in the living room. That is a huge inconvience, stepping over someone's things because they don't have a room to sleep in. It truely slept all of us just fine, with some space left over. It was also nice, espcially with small children, to have a full kitchen so we could stay in and eat. It saved us a lot of money as well.

I would recommend Wave Watch to anyone interested in Gulf Shores, and I do!!!
