I am 71 years old and fell in love with this place 10 yrs. ago. I have a condo next door and it is also listed on vrbo. My wife Sheila and I spend as much time down there as possible. We have 2 children and three grandchildren and they all love to come to the beach.

compton proerties purchased this house in 2009

Why compton proerties chose Gulf Shores

I bought this lot and have built a house on it, because I always wanted a house on the waterfront, as well as deaded beach access.We have a pier to fish from or go boating, we have a boat slip. The grankids can enjoy the pool while we relax on the beach.Its a beautiful place, great landscaping with palm trees and grass.You will love it.

What makes this house unique

No matter what room your in you have a paneramic of water either the ocean or the bay , the bay is 1/2 mile wide, lots of water, at nite its beautiful. my wife likes to sunbath, so we spend a lot of time on the beach.sometimes we watch the sunsets there, its beautiful.

Spring Break Fun

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for several families. 2 masters are huge and the 2 other bedrooms on the top floor have a great connecting bathroom with the best views in the home. I wish that there were better pictures of the property b/c the one's on the website do not do it justice. You are so close to the bay and the views are incredible. Great dock for fishing and small beach area on the bay water for the kids to wade and play. The home stands a city block from the main road so it is very private and quiet. Kitchen has everything needed and although there are not a lot of towels in the home but the w/d are on the top floor for convenience. Pool is small and was very cold (not heated) but will be fine in the summer. Some things are in need of repair such as the master bedrooms french doors but the view from the masters is not that great so really no need to sit on those decks and also the pull out couch in the bunk room is very difficult to pull out and the frame is bent. One of our teenage boys just slept on the couch in that room and said it was very comfortable. We had 2 families, 1 family had a total of 7 and one had a total of 6. 5 boys were able to share the upstairs bunk room (1 bunk bed, single over double, 1 queen, and pull out sofa) and the 2 older girls shared the queen room. The little girls slept with the parents but their was room on the pull out couch in the main family room. Loved that this is far enough down the strip that you are away from all the craziness by the high rises. Great vacation, would stay here again.

Property was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We just left for our week long stay with a house full, 15 people. The home was wonderful, exactly as pictured. The pool was wonderful to come back to everyday from a day at the beach. The dock was wonderful to fish off of and to have the shoreline in the back of the house so the kids could play in the sand without having to go back down to the beach. The house was perfect and Boyd was awesome to communicate with prior to our arrival. I do have one suggestion for the pool though, it should be on a keypad as we didn't know who exactly had access to the pool and who didn't. The pool was very small we felt to accommodate all the adults and children from other houses as well as our house. Overall, I'd definitely stay again, loved the house and location. Thanks so much Boyd for sharing your home with us!

Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our group! 4 adults, 6 kids. Loved that it was next to the pool!

The house could use some kitchen essentials (colander, better knives, etc) but that is our only complaint!

Had a blast and can't wait to come back!

Great house, location, and fishing from dock . Our family loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we had a great vacation in Tide together. It fit our family perfect. We had lots of fun, cooked some great meals in the well stocked kitchen, swam in the pool, and fished in the lagoon. The beach was a short walk across the street. Thanks for the wonderful memories we made at Tide Together.

At the beach with family.

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time with the family on our yearly outing. Love the dock and the convienence to the beach. This is our second time at this house and frankly, it was not as nice as the first time. Some of the chairs need to be replaced. It was not as clean as the first time we stayed. The pots and pans need to be teplaced, and some of the faucets needed repair. We did ok because we were with family, but will probably find another place next year.

Tide Together is a lovely, spacious, well situated home. we would definitely stay there again.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week with three small children and three adults. The house is large enough to fit more. We love being at the lagoon and having access to the beach. The kids loved the pool as well. The owners were responsive and available for questions. Looking forward to a return trip.
