Our beach house is perfectly located on Little Lagoon in Gulf Shores, AL- close to the ocean and downtown activities, but tucked away off of the main beach road for quiet, relaxing times.

About Melanie Kearney

My husband and I purchased and updated this beach house for our family of 5 to enjoy when we aren't renting it to other families. We have equipped the house with all the amenities we love in a beach house, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Melanie Kearney purchased this house in 2012

Why Melanie Kearney chose Alabama

We fell in love with Little Lagoon while vacationing here, and are thrilled to have the opportunity to build memories with our children in our little bit of paradise.

What makes this house unique

We love the boathouse and pier! The fishing is great, and the lagoon waters are perfect for swimming, crabbing, kayaking, boating, and skiing. When we're ready for waves and surf, the beach is an easy walk away.

We have rented several houses on the Lagoon in the past, this was by far the BEST. Very clean, and very well decorated. Wonderful location. The pier was enjoyed by all. We even caught enough crabs for a meal! Wonderful place.

What you see is what you get .it's beautiful and roomy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 42 years of marriage with our children and we could not ask for a better place than the beach house .it is a beautiful house and it had everything you needed from cooking to having fun on the private pier. We brought a boat and a wave runner and was able to leave them in the water our whole stay plus there was enough room at the house to keep our trailers. We would like to thank ms Melanie for a wonderful week.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place was exceptional. You walk in and feel like you are at home. Everything you need is there for you. The pier and lagoon were awesome. We fished and crabbed right from the pier they had poles and traps for you to use and we swam in the lagoon. We took the short walk to the beach and had a great time. They have beach chairs and umbrella there for your convenience and boogie boards and some blow up floats. We cooked out on the grill one night and of course made s'mores. Another day we did a shrimp boil, we purchased the shrimp from the market that is located just a short block and a half away. There is also a really good restaurant there and a store that has everything you could possibly need. The place is great and the view of the lagoon is beautiful. Gorgeous sunsets, very peaceful to sit on the pier in the mornings and evenings and if you don't want to walk out on the pier you can sit in a porch swing under the house or sit on the deck. The screened in porch was a great place to sit also. My mom would sit on the deck of a morning once the sun moved overhead she would move into the screened porch and by afternoon she was sitting on the balcony on the front of the house reading. This place was very roomy and comfortable for Grandma, and the kids 19, 15 and 9 and my husband and myself. It is off the main road so it is quit and very relaxing. We are already planning on returning next summer. I have shared this property with several friends and I hope they will rent it and enjoy it as much as we did. The owner was great to communicate with and answered all my questions.

Perfect setting, immaculately laid out.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic house. Everything was pretty perfect. Very clean and well maintained and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Five minutes walk from the beach, right on the lagoon in which we swam. The beds are the most comfortable that I have stayed in away from home which is very important for me as I have had severe back problems. We stayed for a week and had really lovely holiday and didn't want to leave! The Beach Bar restaurant just around the corner has amazing burgers.

Perfect home for a summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect spot for our summer vacation. We enjoyed time on the pier, grilling and just relaxing in the screened in porch over looking the lagoon. The home is very open and airy, has a well appointed kitchen, plenty of games for children, a PS station, lots of water floats, fishing rods and beach chairs. The covered parking is perfect to keep vehicles out of the hot sun. The owner is on her game and stays in constant contact with you. Thanks for a memorable summer and we will definitely be back for more summer fun!

This house is perfectly located on Little Lagoon, close to beaches and downtown activity, but away from the noise and traffic of the main beach road. The Beach House Kitchen, Waves Convenience Store, Island Ice Cream parlor, and S & S Seafood market are just around the corner - a 2 minute walk. Beach/Ocean access is on 10th street, a 6 minute walk.

We are a mile and a half west of Hwy 59 where you will find putt-putt golf, go carts, bumper boats, Waterville, and souvenir shopping. For serious shoppers, the Tanger Outlet Mall is only 10 miles away.

*Directly across the lagoon from us is the newly constructed Lagoon Park Boat Launch (a 4 mile drive), or you can use the natural launch which is just down the street for smaller vessels and jet skis.
