About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths , Guest House also available
Perdido Bay is in the front yard. Dolphins, herons, pelicans, and fish live in the Bay, which is beautiful in every season. Gentle breezes and the music of the waves stir around the house, making it incomparably tranquil. The water is warm and brackish, perfect for swimmers of all ages and shallow enough for young children. The neighborhood is semirural and quiet.
The house sleeps 14 guests and features a gourmet kitchen. Most furnishings are brand new, and a few antique family items maintain its rustic appeal. The house has central heat and air, as well as a gas fireplace for the winter months.
There are four bedrooms – three of which face directly onto the bay – plus a couch with a pull-out queen-sized mattress. Heron is the Master Suite, with a king-sized bed and private bath. Pelican, best suited for children or young adults, sleeps up to 6 children or 4 adults.
The bunk bed has a double bed on bottom, a twin bed on top, and a trundle bed. The day bed also has a trundle bed. Palmetto, at the end of the porch, features a queen-sized bed. There is a large double vanity bathroom shared with Pelican. Cypress is the most private bedroom, secluded at the far end of the house. This bedroom has a double bed with a private bathroom. Two more optional twin beds hang like porch swings on the front porch.
The gourmet kitchen is every cook's dream. The large granite island is perfect for serving fresh crab and fish. There are two sinks, a gas range, ultra-quiet dishwasher, microwave, oven, and lots of counter space. The kitchen, dining room, and living room flow together to make one open great room. The dining room table, dating from 1930 and original to the house, seats 14 easily.
A spacious screened porch, with hammocks, swings and rocking chairs, surrounds the Great Room and bedrooms. The back porch is the site of a ping-pong table just waiting for family tournaments or games to be enjoyed by all ages.
There is a well-stocked laundry room complete with washer/dryer, bath towels, beach towels, linens, pillows, games, toys, and floats. A canoe is available for exploring the bay and adjoining creeks and bayous.
The Gulf of Mexico, with unspoiled, dazzling white beaches, is just a short drive away. The bustle of Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is also close, but not too close, and offers shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Pontoon and speed boats are available there for rent and boats can be chartered for deep-sea fishing excursions. The Tanger Outlet Mall is just a short 20 minute drive away in Foley for anyone looking for bargains galore.
