About Diane Derzis
Kayak fishing in Little Lagoon - this huge speckled trout was released back into the lagoon as soon as the photo was taken.
Why Diane Derzis chose Gulf Shores
The property is surrounded by old growth, sand live oak and it's like being in a tree house -an isolated bit of 'old Gulf Shores' that's close to everything and we love it!
What makes this House unique
Facing south to the gulf, the house is fronted by Stanton Creek which connects to other canals leading to Little Lagoon. The creek is a natural wetland, excellent for bird-watching and we love to canoe and kayak in the lagoon, which is a great place to fish or just watch the sunset. We're just a 5-minute walk to the public beach and 'The Hangout' in Gulf Shores, which makes this a great spot for the annual Shrimp Festival and we have a private balcony for the 4th of July Fireworks.

Relaxing in a treehouse!
Enjoyed our stay. Owner was super nice and helpful. Would definitely consider staying again. Thank you for sharing your home with us and our beloved pets.
Love it!! Will stay again soon!
This is our 2nd time to stay at the Green Heron House and we love staying there! It’s so relaxing and the perfect location.
Thank you Dale....
Perfect location in a quiet nice neighborhood with everything in walking distance
My granddaughter,my 14 year old daushund and I were looking for a cozy little beach house for spring break. The Green Heron house was perfect. We loved the location just off the beaten path but within walking distance to everything! Sitting out on the deck was wonderful and we enjoyed the canal. Loved that she eve supplied a beach umbrella and canoe! Was able to walk my dog down the street and very little traffic. Old gulf style feel complete with plenty of windows you can open to smell the ocean breeze. Owner next door was friendly and loves dogs too. Thanks Dianne! We will be back!
Thank you Judy.. It was a delight to host you and your family..... Please return..
Great location, close to everything
We go to GS often, and have stayed in many places. The Green Heron house is in a great location, and we had a great relaxing time. It was nice to be able to bring our dogs, who enjoyed relaxing on the porch with us. Our only complaint is that although they do accommodate dogs, the house wasn’t real clean nor well kept, with the screen door ripped and the gate on the porch rigged with straps and ropes (things that can be easily fixed at no cost). Despite these things we enjoyed ourselves and appreciate the opportunity to bring our dogs.
Comfortable and cozy
I enjoyed the comfort of the home and the view was pretty. It was nice to see the pelicans playing in the water in the morning. The location was convenient to various restaurants and activities. I am not the best tech person so I had some trouble with the cable TV, I recommend instructions for future guests. It definitely did not ruin our fun. Overall it was a great experience!
