The Tuscan Villa was perfect for our family of 10. The house was spotless when we arrived. It is beautifully decorated with every amenity you could possibly need. We enjoyed the house and both decks (dubbed the upper observatory and the lower observatory by my 8-yr-old grandson) as well as the beachfront location. We ate at many good local restaurants and had a fun dinner at Lambert's where you will not leave hungry. We spend an afternoon at the outlet mall, did the pirate cruise in Orange Beach which the kids loved (plus we saw dolphins), and visited the Gulf Shores Zoo. We all really liked the little zoo where the granddaughters (13 and 10) did the sloth encounter and the grandsons (8 and 6) did the lemur encounter. Four of us even saw the fox that is mentioned several times in the guest book in the house. It came out after 11:30 pm and we saw it around the volley ball net a couple of houses down. We love the Tuscan Villa and Gulf Shores and hope to return to both soon.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tuscan Villa! The house is in a great location of Gulf Shores...close enough to restaurants and attractions but far away for quiet times on the beach. The house is beautifully furnished in all areas. There were 3 couples and we had plenty of room for togetherness and when we needed our own space. The kitchen was great - loved having the pantry for our food and supplies. Loved the second floor living space with the views of the ocean and beach. The balcony was comfortable for all of us - great sunrise and sunsets! The bedrooms were roomy and beds comfortable. (We would have liked more pillows as most of them were very soft.) The beach was just a very short walk over the dune. We felt like it was our own private entrance and area. We loved walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean, watching the dolphins and sea birds. The first floor living space was also nice to have for those quiet times. The parking area allowed plenty of room for us. It was also nice to have the outside shower/hose to wash off the sand before going upstairs.

There are several stairs to enter the house and to go to the second floor living area. There is an elevator but we chose not to spend the money to use it. And, it really wasn't an issue - except when hauling in all our belongings and groceries. But, the stairs were just fine for us (mid 50's to 60's). I want to commend the housekeeping staff - the house was so clean and ready for us when we arrived. Working with Megan was great - she was very responsive to my emails. We would love to return to Gulf Shores and Tuscan Villa again!

Full Family Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

Our first time for a beach vacation with our full immediate family and first grandchild!. Great place to stay. Beautifully decorated, plenty of space and met all our needs. Pics are great but seeing it in person is more impressive. We hope to make this an annual trip and stay at Tuscan Villa. Megan is a pleasure to work with. (Note: there are no bicycles available, even though listed on amenities.)

Wacky Women's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful; very upscale; nicely furnished with a huge kitchen with very nice appliances and dinnerware/serve ware for use. All of the beds were very comfortable; the living areas had plenty of seating and was comfy and clean. Loved having so many bathrooms also. The kitchen being on the top floor was a little difficult for the older ladies that came; but it gave a wonderful

View of the beach and ocean. I personally loved it being upstairs. (They do have an elevator; but we did not pay for access to it) I would recommend it to friends to stay here. The owner is very nice and easy to work with; we of course left everything clean and as it was when we got there and I received my damage deposit back very quickly. Thanks a bunch! I WILL be inquiring for future stays with my husband and children.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

After 1 day of Tropical Storm Karen.... great weather in Oct. mid 80's. Used the elevator due to my wife's surgery on her leg 10 days before our trip. Was helpful, but expensive. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 5 kids. 2 Living rooms was great. Giant dinner table was also nice.

Rain water was leaking in the upstairs window facing the ocean. Notified the caretaker: she seemed to be aware of it, yet we were not. The cooler/wine chiller was not working. the surround sound upstairs only worked when watching a DVD.

Every bedroom had it's own bathroom. Bonus. This house is only n3 miles from downtown. Busier than the Fort Morgan area, but much closer. This was our 2nd trip to Bama ...... and we will be returning!!!
