About the property

FAMILIES GATHER HERE! A BEACH HOUSE LIKE NO OTHER! This Large Victorian Style Beach House, shown in the Parade of Homes, is located in the awarding winning and magazine featured Village Tannin. One king master suite with bath, downstairs queen bedroom with own bath, large queen bedroom on second floor with another large bath, third floor room with full size bunk beds and twin size bunk beds, sleeper sofa couch. (K, Q, Q, F, F, T, T, SS)

This charming community is located directly across the street from the beach and features charming homes, brick streets, nature trails, and an Olympic size swimming pool. (See link to the Village Tannin for more information on this area.)

Just steps away from the home is the uncrowded Olympic size swimming pool with amazing architecture and comfy loungers. Fish in the lakes located behind the home. Bike ride through the neighborhood while waving to neighbors on their porches. Bike or enjoy a run on the nearby State Park nature trail connected to the neighborhood. Barbeque in your own back yard while enjoying easy access to the kitchen and listening to the music of your choice on the outdoor speakers (just another benefit of not staying in a high rise condo). Relax, read, enjoy a cocktail, or watch the children play from one of the three charming porches of the home. Sleep outside on the swing bed with ocean breezes!

You will be amazed by the luxurious details and southern charm as you walk into this home. The home has surround sound speakers in each room (even bathrooms), a fire sprinkler system, and hardwood floors.

The large front porch features rocking chairs and a swing. The home opens to a grand living space with sleeper sofa couch, flat screen television, and large windows overlooking the lakes. The well-furnished open kitchen has Viking and Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, and Carrera marble counter tops. (Probably the only rental with Carrera marble!)

Also on the first floor is queen size bedroom with new linens, attached bath, closet, flat screen television, and bay windows overlooking the charming neighborhood. There is also a guest half bath on this floor with an antique style vanity.

The large living area opens via french doors to the back porch, where there is a barbeque pit.

The second floor has two bedrooms. The large master bedroom has large windows with views of the gulf, lakes and State Park. There is a king-size bed and flat screen television.

The master bathroom will take your breath away. It features a Clawfoot Champagne Massage Slipper Tub under a Vintage Chandelier, dual vanities with Carrera Marble Counter tops, and a separate shower finished in subway tile. The extra-large walk in closet in this room is an added luxury and is sure to please any long-term traveler.

The other bedroom on the second floor has a queen size bed, closet, and flat screen television. There is also a window seat for reading or for lounging. A full bathroom and large laundry room with washer and dryer complete this floor.

The second floor opens to the third large outdoor porch with swing bed. This porch is a perfect place for watching sunsets, while enjoying a glass of wine over a great conversation or good book.

The third floor tower room features a fun and vibrant surfer bunk room, perfect for the kids. There are two sets of bunk beds in this room, one double size and the other single, and amazing views of the pool, ocean, and neighborhood. Kids also have their own tv in this room.

Come relax, refresh, and enjoy the joys this vacation haven is sure to bring to any gathering of family and friends!

About The Owner

We call Baton Rouge home, but have always loved Orange Beach. When we came across this house, we could not resist the visions of riding bikes with our children, fishing in the backyard, watching our dog jump in and out of the lakes, and teaching our children to swim in the beautiful pool. This is our only rental property and our pride and joy (besides our children, of course)! We love updating it with new touches, whether it may be handmade flower boxes on the front porch or new and colorful bedding! We visit often, but also enjoy sharing it with other familes!

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our five-night stay in this comfortable, well-equipped beach house. The large kitchen with marble countertops and high-end, full-size appliances made meal preparations easy and efficient. The home is very tastefully decorated and appealing. It easily sleeps ten. We would highly recommend this house to others.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family got to enjoy a vacation at this lovely beach house and it was amazing thanks to our stay here. It is very close to the beach and has a lake full of fish right at its back door. There is a pool within walking distance on the property, and it is surrounded by beautiful bike trails. The house was immaculate and we felt right at home. It made me sad to have to leave. We had an amazing time on our vacation as we had access to so many activites and adventures! I will be returning to the beach house for a future vacation!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week with 10 adults and a toddler. We found this house an incredible escape from reality! The beautiful neighborhood with brick roads and incredible houses made for great walks. The beach is just a quick walk away and we found the walk there very rewarding with sunrises and sunsets. Out the back of the subdivision is a great nature trail, and we even got to visit the state park and zoo which are both just down the street. Besides great location, the house itself is gorgeous, comfortable, and well stocked. Plenty of room to spread out and come together for the Thanksgiving meal. We would come again in a heartbeat! Plus, Lyla is great to work with and very responsive. :)

Perfect Spring Break House for our Family with Pre-Teens!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely incredible! The property and house exceeded our expectations- it was even better than the pictures! The house was absolutely gorgeous! The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious! The extra amenities like surround sound, TVs in the bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms really helped with the comfort of two families staying together for an amazing Spring Break vacation! The kitchen was large and convenient so we could prepare our own meals! The walk to the beach was short and convenient! The laundry room was perfect for keeping our towels and suits fresh! The property was so close in proximity to all sorts of activities- restaurants, the arcades, and shopping! Our kids ranged in age from 8-12 and they had an absolute blast! We WILL be back! Thank you so much:)

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent our third vacation at Friends and Family Gather Here and once again thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Not having to wait for an elevator or a cart to unload the cars is one of the perks to being in a home. We feel so at home. My grandchildren wouldn't think of staying any where else at the beach. Hopefully we will be able to return next summer.
