Overview

About the property

House, 9 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Location: Josephine, Alabama located on Arnica Bay, the Intercoastal Waterway. The property is across from Bear Point, down from Pirate's Cove and adjacent to Ono Island.

Accomodations: 9 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, two large kitchens, and two large great rooms.

If you are looking for a large and exquisite vacation home on the Alabama Gulf Coast, you have come to the right place. Perdido Beach, Orange Beach, and Gulf Shores are just minutes away. The Jones Family Beach House, in Josephine, Alabama, is an ideal place - not only a boater's paradise, but a boater's wife and children's paradise as well. Nearby Marinas include, Orange Beach Marina, Sportsman's Marina, and Barber Marina. Touching Arnica Bay, and Perdido Bay to the south, it's just a few minutes to Perdido Pass Bridge and the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The Intercoastal Waterway makes dining by boat a breeze. Motor or sail to the docks of Lulu's, Tacky Jack's, or Cobalt's just to name a few. Have you ever been to the movies or a concert by boat? Now you can! The Wharf is just a short boat ride away. Want exciting night life? Cruise to the Flora Bama for live music, or grab a World famous cheeseburger at neighboring Pirate's Cove. Bring your boat and you will find paradise just off your private mooring and private dock. A Public boat launch is less that a mile away.

Watch the dolphins swim as your kids romp and play. See the mullet jump, catch speckled trout, and trap blue crabs. Cook in our outdoor area on an electric grill. Maybe you want to smoke ribs, or roast a full pig on the open bar-b-que pit. Perhaps a low-country shrimp boil is what you have in mind with the two large picnic tables. Crawfish boils are fun too!

You will also enjoy your stay on the sprawling 7 acres making it ideal for nature walks, and long bike rides. Bare feet and smiling faces guaranteed. Sunsets and memories you will never forget.

So bring your babies and your in-laws. There's plenty of space and privacy for everyone. You'll know when you've arrived because the sandy road to parardise is paved with palmettos and azaleas. Pull under the house and step foot into the mud room area. Leave all of your troubles in here. Just a few steps to the second floor, and you will enter into a spacious, large open cooking, dining, and gathering area. The balcony and the view are perfect for coffee and cocktails. There are three bedooms and 1.5 baths in this area. The washer and dryer are accessible from this floor. Take just a few more steps to the third floor, and you will enter into 'space heaven'. Six more bedrooms, four addtional bathrooms, and a second kitchen and great room lend itself for multi-family gatherings. This is an even better view of sailboats and sport fishing boats.

Activity, activity, activity! This is the 'Snapper Capital' of the World. Deep sea and sailboat charters are readily available. Inshore day fishing charters are available for plenty of specks and reds. Motor boat rentals and dolphin cruises are literally at your back door.

Secluded, Secluded, secluded! Leave the chaos, traffic, and crowds behind. This place is a sanctuary!

Notes:
The Jones Family Beach house in Josephine, Alabama is an ideal place - not only a boater's paradise, but a boater's wife and children's paradise as well. Touching Perdido Bay to the South, it's just a few minutes boat ride to Perdido Pass and the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the Intercoastal Waterway, this spot is surrounded by beaches and a picuresque bay of small uninhabited islands. The convenient mooring and private dock make it a sportman's dream. The sandy beach and shallow waters give moms peace of mind. Two kitchens and two large great grooms make it a perfect setting for multi family gatherings. There's plenty of space and privacy for everyone, so bring your babies and your in-laws. Nestled on seven acres, this location has it all, nature walks, bird watching, dolphin sightings, net casting, and crab catching. Bare feet and smiling faces guaranteed. Sunsets and memories you will never forget.

Met all expectations - fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. Everyone slept and showered comfortably and the location is wonderful. I could get used to looking out onto the water each morning as I made breakfast! 10/10 would book here again.

Wonderful getaway for a big family. It has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This secluded bayfront home is perfect for a large group. It has A well-equipped kitchen with basic food supplies, nine comfortable bedrooms and enough baths for everyone to have privacy. The dock is great for sunning and boating, and the spacious lawn let us put up croquet and have a party. We hope to go every year. It is not so fancy that you worry about messing up but nice enough to make you feel right at home.

Very nice place with lots of room for our golfer's

  • 5 of 5

We take a trip every year with the brothers, cousins, and special friends ... and I have to say this way a very nice trip and most of it was due to the cabin. There was lots of room, with a large table and even the kitchen was well stocked. Now only if my golf game was as good :)

Just loved it and would highly recommend!

Just 12 piers from the famous Pirate's Cove. Enjoy the riff raff of the best cheeseburger in the south and the coldest beer on the coast.
