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 Gulf Shores

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 soothing sea salt colored walls put you in the mood to relax! The large rooms accommodate everyone we have staying with us, plus extras! Having two master bedrooms is also a big plus!

Great for Kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Dolphin View B. Being located right on the beach was great for our small kids. Having a pool was fantastic. The house had everything we needed. We will stay here again.

Beautiful House and View!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had the best week with such accommodating owners! The house was even more beautiful than the pictures. Make sure to watch out for the dolphins! We had a great time and would definitely want to go back.

Prime location directly on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Despite an issue with the cleanliness of the home upon arrival due to remodeling contractors (Monica addressed the situation and offered solutions the following morning), we had a great stay!

Beds were comfortable, kitchen had most supplies we needed to serve a Christmas dinner, and the view is absolutely breath taking! We saw dolphins every morning, restaurants and fun were nearby, but far enough away to feel secluded.

For future visitors: pantry items only included

salt, pepper, and cajun spice, no toaster, and the swimming pool is not heated. There is a Walmart close by, so you can pick up pretty much anything you need there.

Overall, this is a nice property in a prime location.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great vacation. We have replaced the toaster! Thank you for letting us know that it was missing. Hope you come back soon!
