Lovely new furnishings in our family room and and fresh new bedding and mattresses will make your vacation a special place to relax and bask in the paradise. Our home is family friendly and has WiFi, cable with movie channels, infant and toddler furnishings, beach chairs and sand and water toys at no additional cost.

Walk out your deck door onto the beach and down to the ocean. This FOUR (4) bedroom three and a half (3.5) bath luxury home sits directly facing the Gulf of Mexico on the beach. The home is located on the sandy beach and sits gulf front with unobstructed view of ocean and beach.

This spacious 2,500 sq ft duplex home is an immaculately kept property. All 4 bedrooms have a flat screen TV, the den HD flat screen is 52', and there are 3 dvd players, plus a state of the art stereo system which pipes music to balcony areas, master bedroom, and den. You won't be disappointed in the deluxe accommodations, as the furnishings and decor are fun, 'beachy', comfortable, and the art unique.

Set in a small duplex community, Aqua Vista offers opportunities to relax to the sounds of the ocean waves brushing against the beach and the softly billowing sea oats on the dunes, to explore the beauty of the animal and sea life residing in their natural habitat, and to sunbathe on private decks and an almost private beach.

The generous floor plan provides ample space to spread out and enjoy fun times with family or friends or private moments with someone special. Two balconies offer panoramic ocean views and large seating areas. The huge, beachfront master bedroom has a writing/computer desk, a reading nook, en suite bathroom and a private balcony. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and has stainless appliances and granite counter tops. Free WiFi and cable with movie channels are provided.

The pool is large and is only shared with one other duplex building! There is ample parking under the home, a storage closet for beach supplies and a charcoal grill on the beach side of the home. With all of these amenities, you should have a memorable vacation.
Orange Beach offers a slow- paced, fun atmosphere for the whole family. There are shops, unlimited restaurants, parks with walking trails, golf courses and tennis courts nearby, and miles of beautiful white sandy beaches to explore.
So, skip the elevators, the crowded beaches, the noisy breezeways and indulge yourself and your family in a unique beach get-a-way vacation at Aqua Vista.
Relax and enjoy your stay and, thanks, in advance, for treating our “home” with respect and care so we may all enjoy it for many years.


P.S. We are individually owned and managed: no rental company. Owners live in nearby Gulf Shores, so you have fast and convenient service when needed.
You pay $500 security deposit (refundable), the advertised weekly or nightly rental fee, plus 11% tax and $185 cleaning fee to the homeowner and a service fee to VRBOHomeaway...you don't pay a per bedroom/bathroom cleaning fee or insurance fee for this property. Rates based on 10 occupancy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We enjoy weekend get-a-ways with family and friends at the beach. Our family loves to come down for holidays, special events and summer vacation. We live in nearby Gulf Shores area and are available for assistance as needed.

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
Our family has always enjoyed the beach experience. After renting condos for many years, we decided to purchase the duplex because it offered a more private beach and larger spaces than a condo. Hurricane Ivan almost destroyed our special place, but we finally rebuilt it. Much 'heart' has been given to make this a luxurious dream vacation get-a-way for guests, family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like to spend time reading, sunbathing, fishing, shelling, and relaxing. Our entire family is intrigued by the nesting sea turtles and we volunteer for the Share the Beach program during nesting and hatching seasons from May - October. We also love to entertain friends for cookouts, football games, and card nights. Golfing, shopping at Foley Outlets, and exploring the coastal area are some of our favorite pastimes. There are numerous restaurants within 5 - 15 minutes. We especially enjoy dining and music nights at Cobalt, Cosmo's, Tacky Jack's, Wolfe Bay, and Shipp's Harbor Grille at Sportsman's Marina. Franco's Italian has wonderful dishes too. Our children and grandchildren enjoy Lulu's and the Hangout in nearby Gulf Shores. They also like to play at the arcades and visit the mini golf courses at Adventure Island in Orange Beach and enjoy driving bumper boats and fast racers at 'The Track'.
