Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We purchased this home as a second home to enjoy with family and friends when not being enjoyed by those seeking the ultimate beach experience. We now live in Atlanta but grew up on the Gulf Coast and always dreamed of finding a perfect place on the water. We found it!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
Gulf Shores, Alabama beaches are the most beautiful beaches on the panhandle because they not only offer wide white sandy beaches and clear water but also because they are not completely overrun and over-developed. Also, the charter fishing out of both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is world class and you can expect to go out on a charter once and have enough fish for your entire family for the whole week of your visit.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is located on the beach yet Little Lagoon is just a short walk away and is a great place to enjoy water sports or just relax on a kayak. If the tide is right, smaller boats can launch in the lagoon and in a matter of minutes be in the gulf.
