Outdoor seating abounds on the two outdoor decks overlooking the ocean, with the upstairs balcony off of the master featuring an outdoor daybed for lazy afternoons out of the sun.

Directly on the beach with a private pool, it is beautifully landscaped with fabulous views of both the ocean and the lagoon from the pool deck. There is a separate beverage refrigerator on the pool level as well as a grill for your outdoor dining enjoyment.

We live in Atlanta, Georgia. Our home was built and completed in January of 2008 so the house is still like new. We take great care in keeping it maintained and make several trips down throughout the off season to check on things and make sure everything is just right for your stay.
Karen purchased this House in 2008
Why Karen chose Gulf Shores
We love Gulf Shores because we can get there from the Atlanta area in about 5 1/2 hours, the same amount of time it used to take us to get to the Destin and 30A area, however, this drive is much easier because it is mostly interstate travel, and we think the beach is just as beautiful. Gulf Shores has so much to offer families in the way of entertainment and actives and the festivals that take place throughout the year like the Shrimp Festival, The Oyster and Craft Beer Festival, and the Hangout Music Festival make it equally fun for young adults. Although Gulf Shores has grown and offers so much, we still love the small town feel and family atmosphere. It's great for couples and families and there is something for everyone.
What makes this House unique
When we are at the Beach Mouse, we enjoy being directly on the beach and having a private pool. We are only five minutes from grocery stores, fresh seafood, and all the other great shopping and restaurants Gulf Shores has to offer. We recently discovered the city park which has a fabulous tennis area, including five covered clay courts. And of course we can golf or hit the amusements with our children, all are very close.

You can't get a better location
I gave this home my highest compliment: I recommended it to good friends. It's a large, beautiful home right on a quiet beach. The furniture and finishes were very nice, and plenty of room for our two families. I spent my days reading a book on the covered patio while our teens played on the beach and swam. Do bring your own beach towels: the listing says towels provided, but this refers to bath towels.
Fabulous fall break at the beach!
We had two families together for a week at the beach during fall break. The house was perfect. Plenty of room for everyone and gorgeous beachfront. Added plus was the volleyball net on the beach. Owners provided everything needed for great beach vacation including wonderful restaurant recommendations. House is located at a nice, less crowded part of Orange Beach. Would go back again!
What a GREAT week at the beach!
Working with the property owner was a dream! Karen is professional, courteous, communicative and helpful!
This property met and exceeded our hopes and expectations! We loved the spacious house that comfortable fit 2 families. We enjoyed the large kitchen and its accessories, the many rooms, the proximity to the gorgeous beach (right outside the door), and our own private pool. This home is very clean with well appointed furnishings, and offered everything we needed to make this the very best beach vacation trip we have taken. I have been in the hotel/resort industry for over 25 years and have worked at the very best and I give this experience 5 stars and we can't wait to return!! Thank you for everything Karen!
Perfect vacation home on the beach!
Karen was most accommodating to all our needs and very easy to work with. The house was perfect for our family vacation with our adult children. Every bedroom is spacious with high ceilings and private bath. We enjoyed the spectacular sunsets as we dined on the 2nd floor veranda listening to the ocean. We especially enjoyed morning coffee off the Master Suite, on the top floor veranda with the cool breeze and magnificent views of the ocean. The house had everything we needed and more. The home was beautifully furnished, well maintained and clean. We definitely hope to return next summer. Thank you Karen!
Owner isn't trustworthy
I want to start by saying the home & property were beautiful! Despite our dealings with the home owner, we were able to enjoy our vacation. The reason for the 2 star is all due to the interactions I had with the homeowner. Beware. **When I originally booked this house she asked me to send her cash vs paying through VRBO because she didn't include in the advertised rate the 4% VRBO charges her, and if I didn't she would increase my rate. I put a complaint through VRBO who let her know she can't do that. **When we checked in, we were told this homeowner doesn't provide wifi and we needed an ethernet cord. However, there was wifi at the house. **the house is advertised with having a grill, crockpot and roaster, but didn't have any of them. When I emailed the homeowner letting her know we planned all our meals around the grill she replied by saying she would update the page and told me to go buy my own!**The "roaster" was an old roasting pan that couldn't be used because the metal was chipping off. **None of the bedroom doors lock. **nearly every room had light bulbs out and we would need to switch bulbs so we can see in the bathroom** She listed linens available but there were 0 blankets on the beds, only thin decorative covers. We were able to find 4 blankets throughout closets.**For as much as she is renting this house for, we found it comical that the TVs were smaller than a computer screen. A few of the TVs were the old "box" model. This house is listed for sale and I'm assuming the home owner has "let go" her focus on making the house a home to the renters she is charging. Again, the house is beautiful and the location is amazing...just be aware that the homeowner doesn't provide what she says and doesn't apologize/care when you point out her inconsistencies.
This house is my biggest and most important investment. I love this house and constantly work to keep it the best possible condition so that my renters have an excellent experience and would never let things go. In fact, the house has brand new carpet and was painted inside and out this spring. We also added a new leather sectional and updated some of the bedding this spring. I was very distressed to see a negative review. We have been renting since 2008 and have never had anything less than 5 stars. I am so sorry that Ms. Q was not satisfied with some of the features we provide. I went down the week after her visit and located the missing crockpot (sometimes guests move things around) and purchased a new grill for the property (they tend to rust out being on the beach all week and sometimes they get tossed unbeknownst to me). I take great care to replace any damaged cookware each time I visit, so the damaged roasting pan was also replaced. We have had wifi for many years so I'm sorry she was mis-informed upon check in. We utilize a management company to look after the property and clean after each guest. We pay an additional fee for them to come in once a month and replace burned out bulbs, batteries and air filters. All bulbs were lit when I arrived. They are also on hand should you need anything during your stay, you can give them a call and they will deliver it or make repairs should anything break while you are there. I hope this information is helpful, and I look forward to many more years of happy vacations for my renters!
Awesome house! Highly recommend!
Very clean, very updated, comfortable furniture in the living area, great eating room indoors and out on the porch, loved the tower room for the kids to play in. We had 6 adults and 9 children under the age of 7 and had enough room that we didn't feel like we were sitting on each other. The pool was a nice size, the best one we've had in a home (not condo) setting. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor (with the living area and kitchen) and 4 bedrooms upstairs, 2 with their own bathrooms, one with a shared bathroom to the hall that the 4th bedroom would have to use as their bathroom because there's not another one. Worked perfectly for our family situation. Loved the covered porch, loved all the paved space underneath the house with a picnic table, outdoor shower. Only drawback was that we needed more flatware for a house that fits so many people - but we bought plastic anyway for ease. LOVED this house, was far and away the best house we've stayed in with our large family over the last 4 years. We've never wanted to return to a place again, they're always nice but enough drawbacks to keep us looking elsewhere. This was definitely a place we hope to stay again!! Very clean, very nice!!
This home is located just 3 minutes from the heart of Gulf Shores, close to all restaurants, shopping and other activities.
