About Monica Gibson

We are the new owners of Dolphin View side B: Monica & Russell Gibson and Ginger & Mark Smith. Russell was born and raised in the Gulf Shores area, and the rest of us are from North Louisiana, where we currently reside. The Gibson's recently owned The Perky Pelican in Gulf Shores and decided to sell it to be directly on the beach. Life long friends, the Smith's joined in on the venture and we purchased Dolphin View Side B in order to spend more time enjoying life by the beach. We have spent lots of time remodeling and repairing it, and now are ready to share it with others! We are only a phone call away, and have lots of relatives in the area if you need anything.

Monica Gibson purchased this house in 2013

Why Monica Gibson chose Alabama

We loved that this home is a duplex and not a high rise condo. It has a pool that is only shared by the other side. But the best part is no elevators and the beach is just steps out the door. It is also in the best location of Gulf Shores, near the center of town with great restuarants, shopping and kids activities.

What makes this house unique

We feel at ease when we walk into the door of this home. The cheery yellow walls put you in the mood for fun! The large rooms accommodate everyone we have staying with us, plus extras! Having two master bedrooms is also a big plus!

Perfect family vacation!

Our stay was womderful. The house was as we expected from the photos. Pool a little smaller than we would have liked but the view and walk to the beach made it all worth it. We would stay again for sure!

Comfortable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Dolphin View B this past week. Weather was perfect and we loved the quiet surroundings and having the pool to ourselves. We are already looking to book this home again next year for our family beach trip. Owner, Monica was very accommodating and responded quickly to my messages.

Fabulous Location :: Beautiful Home :: True to Description

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of recently staying at Dolphin View B with our two young boys and our extended family. Traveling with 10 people with ages ranging from 4-70, you'd think there'd be at least one issue. This was certainly not the case, Monica has the house equipped and beautifully decorated with all that you need to feel like you're home away from home. One of the only homes with pools available right on the beach, gave us the opportunity to have options after sand castle building or fishing. If you're thinking of staying here for a vacation, you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. It provided the peace and tranquility that we needed at that time. The beach is just footsteps away. We were able to sleep with our balcony door open and be lulled by the sound of the waves. Everything worked well and the property was clean and safe. Count your toilet paper rolls to see if the cleaning service left the 6 rolls stated. We also had a problem with not being able to use the master TV due to lack of a remote, but I believe Monica was going to take care of that. This property is just maybe 3 minutes to the happening side of town, and just far enough away to be peaceful. LOVED the beach!!!

Exceptional place.

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained and clean with lots of extras. Wonderful to be directly on the beach. Owners were great to answer any questions and especially helpful with a travel issue that we had. Definitely would recommend this property for a short or long term stay. Hope to be able to return here in the future. Do not hesitate to stay here. You will be very pleased.

Beautiful location and wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin View B was as described and very aptly named - - we saw dolphins swimming thru the beautiful gulf waters constantly! Property was very spacious and clean, well furnished and maintained. Owner (Monica) was wonderful and easy to work with, providing all info needed to enhance our stay. Great location ON BEACH with nice small pool and deck. Also, many great restaurants and grocery stores near by. Highly recommend!
