Great house for a party of 8

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished and well equipped house within walking distance to the beautiful beach. We enjoyed our stay very much even though we got the impression that the house had last been cleaned quite a while before our stay - there was a lot of dust. Also, the downstairs bathroom only provided cold water. Since we only stayed for 3 days we shared the upstairs shower and it didn't bother us too much. All in all a great relaxing place for a vacation if the cleaning/maintenance is done!

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the beach house. We are sorry to hear about your problem with the downstairs bathroom, and wish you would have let us know during your stay so the issue could be resolved during your stay. We have since sent maintenance to repair the issue and addressed the cleaners to spot check rentals that have been empty for dust buildup. We hope to see you again soon.

Great House For Groups!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for large groups or medium groups. The rooms were very clean and the beach is literally right down the road (1 block exactly) The employees at the office were very friendly and nice. They also weren't all up in your business, like coming by the house everyday, we seen them twice and that was at check in and we seen them the second time at checkout. Another thing i would like to say is this place is great if you have a few teenagers with you! It's next to everything! You or them will never get bored! Thank you for letting me stay in your beautiful home! WILL VISIT AGAIN!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 people in our crew and it was our first time in Gulf Shores. We had a blast and the house was the perfect size! It was really close to the Hangout and souvenir shops! The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all either! My family and friends would definitely stay back in the house! The only downfall is it's not pet friendly :( but other than that, we loved it!

Skipper house was great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Skipper House over Memorial Day weekend! Great house. The house has tons of space and is in a perfect location for walking to the beach. The property was very clean and well-maintained, and the contact agents were very helpful in arranging a booking quickly. We would love to come back again and stay!
