Why Kristin Phillips chose Gulf Shores

This fabulous property was built in 2009 and from the outside in is ALL BEACH! Its bright colors and good vibe provide the perfect foundation for making your BEST family memories at the beach!!

What makes this house unique

We love relaxing on the beach, walking the beach at sunrise & sunset, watching the dolphins play, building sand castles, swimming in the pool, cooking & eating outside, watching football on the big screen, celebrating special occasions, and just enjoying our time together with family & friends. One family member remarked that having coffee on the upper deck in the morning was 'her favorite spot in the whole world.' It has been a great place for us to spend time as a family & share with our loved ones.

Perfect Family Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay was amazing and so relaxing. This was our 3rd stay in Gulf Shores but 1st time directly on the beach. I can honestly say we are all spoiled now by the Pleasure Key. Everything was very clean and well kept. Kristin was fabulous to work with. We only had a few minor issues which she quickly addressed. The convenience of the beach out our front door was so relaxing and enjoyable. All of us could come and go between the pool and beach as we pleased while the others watched from the deck. The week went by way too quickly! Thank you for a wonderful vacation! We will definitely return in the future!

Your pics are posted on the property's Facebook page. Thanks so much again for choosing Pleasure Key; y'all were a joy to work with also. Come back again!

As many of the other reviews state, this house is in a great location, the beach is great and at one time I'm sure the house was the same. However, it is now in dire need of some normal house maintenance that keeps a property like this at a 4-5 star rating. The type of repairs needed range from minor repairs like replacing a broken pool ladder, broken pool chairs and repairing a picnic table along with a general good house cleaning. More extensive work like replacing carpets, repairing or replacement swimming pool deck and staining main house deck and stairs are also needed. In our opinion, at this time, this house has too many issues that need to be addressed to have a 4-5 star rating.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear of your disappointment, and wish you would have brought these issues (especially the minor ones that were easily rectified) to my attention upon check-in, to afford me the opportunity to accommodate you during your stay. The pool ladder, which was discussed with you by our pool man at that time, was special ordered, arrived, and replaced the week following your departure. The guests checking in right after you communicated that a few pool chairs were broken; new ones were purchased and delivered to them the next day. The picnic table upstairs which was broken was also removed and replaced. The owners had planned to replace the carpet already, which will be done after the last guests leave in October, before Thanksgiving--there has not been a break in guests since the spring long enough to allow for this. The deck will be re-stained during this time also--we noticed the toll the salt air had taken on it in the spring, but again, there was no break in which to do this. Thanks again for taking the time to post your review. We rely on and value guest input, and strive to provide the best vacation experience we possibly can. Should you stay with us in the future, please do not hesitate to bring any issues to my attention at the beginning of your stay. The minor issues were rectified as soon as they were discovered, thus prompting the guests who stayed in July to offer a positive, 4-star review. We would have loved for your group to have had a similar experience. Thanks again! Kristin

70th birthday getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at this house the week of July 18 - 25, 2015. It was my husbands 70th birthday and we could not have had more fun. We played volley ball in the pool, crabbed on the beach and had many great meals.

Some items were missing in the kitchen, but we made due.

Kristin, the rental agent was very helpful throughout the booking process. Any time we had a question, she was always very quick to respond. If she has other units available to rent, we will be more than happy to book through her. We do not always need such a large home.

Our only complaint was the condition of the carpeting which needs to be replaced but other than that we had a most wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Julie. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and loved helping plan you special celebration/family vacation. I've replaced the blender and hand mixer; apologies for those items and thanks for bringing it to my attention. The owners had planned to replace the carpet this winter. Thanks again, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have you back in Gulf Shores! Thanks again. Kristin

Loved the Pink House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the "pink house" as my grandkids call it the end of April, 2015. We had the best time! It was the closest beach access I've ever had. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We loved having a storage area outside to store our chairs and umbrellas and toys every night. My husband loved the outdoor shower. My grandkids loved the pool and the "kid's room". There was even a little fort in the den. We are planning on going back in 2016 we liked it so much!

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

My family of 16 stayed in this home and we all loved it. The 6 bathrooms was a plus because of so many of us. Each bedroom had a bath. The beach was easily accessible with a walkway almost half way to the beach. There was plenty of parking room. The pool was an extra special treat for the kids that loved it. The home is in a great location, the beach not so crowded for the time of year we were there. The owner was very nice to work with and was quick to answer my questions. We would love to stay at this home again for the 2015 vacation.
