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 ceiling fan , HDTV, DVD player, 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 with loungers for sunning and tables and chairs for family dining 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.

About Rhonda Barber

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.

Rhonda Barber purchased this house in 2002

Why Rhonda Barber chose Alabama

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.

What makes this house unique

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'.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

I have taken my family to multiple places on the Gulf Coast over the past several years (Destin, Gulf Shores, Panama City Beach).

This is the first year that we all agreed we MUST come back to this property next year. The home is beautiful with absolutely all the amenities needed. Lots of space for 2 families with kids. The beach access is second to none, and the location is perfect for the Orange Beach / Gulf Shores area.

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property. Our family booked both sides and it worked out perfectly. The bedrooms are good size and having 3.5 bathrooms was a plus. The washer and dryer are both new and large capacity. The view is fantastic and the walk to the beach is short. The kitchen has everything you need for those wanting to do a lot of cooking along with grills. Would definitely stay here again. Lots of sand toys for the little ones.

Can't wait to come back!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property was our home away from home for a week, and we hated to leave! We felt right at home as we had all the ammeneties we needed. This home had very nice sized bedrooms, was very tastefully decorated, and a view and beach access that cannot be beat! The location is very convenient for shopping, and has plenty of activities within minutes. We cannot wait to come back next year!

Beach Wedding Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this entire house for our daughter's wedding venue. From the beginning, the owner was just wonderful to work with. She was very helpful with suggestions from venders to restaurants. This house is gorgeous, the private beach and views were spectacular! The house was fully stocked with everything you would need for a family beach getaway. The furniture was luxurious and the beds are very, very comfortable! It was definitely a week to remember and we would love to visit again next year.
