About The Owner

WE are the Mitchell's from Birmingham. My wife is a retired administrator for school system and I am retired. We bought home and completely remolded it to our taste. We are very picky about our renters so we can keep the place as nice as possible so all can enjoy. Thanks for looking at our little piece of paradise.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

We bought our home for my wife because she is a beach nut, and she just loves the short stroll across the street to her own private sunbathing spot. Also my entire family comes down as often as they can. So book early! And it's a large group as you can see!

What makes this house unique

We have great neighbors , need an egg and he's got one. Sunsets are breathtaking also !!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second trip to stay with the Mitchell's. Our friends came down with us and were completely surprised how nice the beach house especially for the price . We spent the time we were here eating great seafood and walking the white sandy beaches on the gulf. Everything is so close and we can't wait to get back . Keith is so friendly to deal with and really wants us to have a good time.

View of the Gulf, short walk to the beach, clean house, quiet neighborhood, better than a condo!

  • 5 of 5

I’m grateful to have found this gem! The beach was private vs the large condo crowds, the house was warm and welcoming. Keith was kind and provided great information. It’s close to great food and only a couple miles from the action. We will be back!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Gulf Shores and also our first time vacationing with friends. This house was absolutely perfect for us! We were able to have privacy from each other and have plenty of room to move around. I couldn't say enough about the location of the house. We loved being so close to the ocean and restaurants. The views were beautiful! And I couldn't say enough about Keith. He was wonderful to work with and accommodate us for our stay. We definitely plan on returning to the area and using the same house. We enjoyed ourselves so much, even though I killed Monty, the monkey float! But his brother Montel has taken his place for the next visit!!

Owner's Response: Aimee your visit was the highlight of my rentals this year. My wife and I laughed so hard at your funny emails on your visit. You and your group are so welcome anytime. Loved the pictures and look so forward to your return. And although we all miss Monty the float his brother Montel is very happy at the beach. Thanks for kind statements also.

Always a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We are headed back home from our week stay at Keith's and would recommend it to anyone looking to go to the gulf. This is our second time and have zero complaints and will be back again. The home is very nice, updated and a great location. Perfect walking distance to the beach and the best value I have found. If you are looking for a great affordable getaway for the family I would strongly urge you to look at this property.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had and amazing time! This house was was very well maintained. It was very nicely decorated, clean and spacious and well equipped.. It is very convenient to the beach. Having a good restaurant, ice cream parlor, and store across the street is also a plus. We also made use of the large deck in the evenings. Keith Mitchell was very accommodating. He made us feel like honored guests. We always knew we could call if any problems arose. Thanks! Keith.
