Property description

NOT A DUPLEX! Nostalgic Gulf Shores charm awaits you at GREEN HERON HOUSE - and your pet is welcome, too! Situated on a quiet, dead-end street surrounded by native oaks, palmetto, water & wildlife - this open and spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bath home features painted pine floors throughout and a large living room, den, sunlit kitchen, separate dining area and deck. Windows everywhere enhance your enjoyment of the surrounding oaks and wildlife with a sense of being in a tree house!

Complete with gulf view and located in the heart of Gulf Shores on Stanton Creek, GREEN HERON HOUSE is only a short walk or bike ride to the beach, shops and restaurants. Enjoy bird watching, golf, tennis or fishing? There's plenty of opportunity here!

Downstairs you can relax in the sun or shade, grill outdoors, and paddle in the lagoon and canals - we'll even provide the canoe! Or just drift away in the hammock.

PLEASE NOTE: This rental is for family groups only. If you are looking for a beach rental where you can party with your friends - please choose another location.

Owner info

About the owner: Kayak fishing in Little Lagoon - this huge speckled trout was released back into the lagoon as soon as the photo was taken.

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

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
