Check out our beautiful new furnishings. We just updated the den and freshened our king bedrooms with new mattresses and bedding. Sandbox is a beautifully decorated 4 bedroom/ 3 bath duplex that is directly facing the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, Alabama. The home is located on the sandy beach and sits gulf front with unobstructed view of ocean and beach. Step out of the home onto the deck and watch the dolphins play while enjoying your morning coffee. Walk downstairs onto the sandy beach, catch a few rays and enjoy the ocean waves lapping at your feet. Sit by the pool and relax with a cool swim. Enjoy grilling on our charcoal grill located on the beach side under the home.

Sandbox has all of the amenities you could ever want in a beach vacation home without the noisy, crowded elevators of a large condo property. We have four spacious bedrooms, 3 nice bathrooms, ample parking underneath home and in adjacent parking area, a large pool, and a storage closet for easy access to beach chairs and pool items. We have some infant and toddler furnishings too!!

As you walk into Sandbox, you will notice that it is tastefully decorated with comfortable, designer furnishings. This home has 4 TVs, 2 DVD players, a CD player and free WiFi access. The four bedrooms are configured with 2 king-sized beds, 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds and there is a sofa bed in the den for additional sleeping. The first floor has a kitchen, great room den, laundry and one king bedroom with adjacent bath. The well-equipped kitchen has stainless appliances, granite counter tops, an eat-in bar for four and a dining area that seats six. Just off of the den and kitchen, there is a large partially covered deck where you can enjoy spectacular views of the dunes and water. The second floor has THREE Bedrooms. Two bedrooms share a bath, and the gulf front master bedroom suite has it's own private bath and reading nook. The master bath has a dual vanity, a shower and a spacious garden tub. The master bedroom even has its own private balcony where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf, spectacular sunrises and the glows of the sunsets.

So, come on down to the lovely beach. You’ll soon find out why we call it “paradise”. Orange Beach offers a slow- paced, fun atmosphere for the whole family. There are shops, unlimited restaurants, parks with walking trails, golf courses and tennis courts nearby, and miles of beautiful white sandy beaches to explore.

The property manager lives in nearby Gulf Shores and is available to keep the building in pristine condition and to address any concerns immediately. Check us out!! You won’t be disappointed in our property or our commitment to service and satisfaction. Be sure to read our guest reviews…they are from people just like you.

Thanks for visiting our site. Feel free to contact me at one of the phone numbers on the right. I will be glad to help you with your reservation and answer questions you have about this incredible duplex. Remember, your beach vacation is just a click or a phone call away!!.

About Rhonda Barber

We have enjoyed coming to the beach for many years. Our daughter introduced us to Orange Beach after visiting here while she was in college. Our family loves the area and the relaxed atmosphere. We are excited about sharing our home with other families.

Rhonda Barber purchased this house in 2003

Why Rhonda Barber chose Orange Beach

This property has an awesome view of the beach and water. We enjoy sitting on our decks and watching the dolphins and fish jump and play. The sunrise and sunsets are amazing too. The pool offers a cool alternative to the ocean on a hot day.

What makes this house unique

This area of the beach is just our little piece of heaven. It is quiet and not crowded with vacationers or rows of chairs and umbrellas. It has the feeling of a small community where you can choose to get to know your 'neighbors' or just be alone. There are many fun "adventure" venues for children in the area including mini golf, arcades, dolphin cruises, pirate ship rides, and shops to explore. Numerous family and some upscale restaurants within 5-15 minutes, convenient grocery stores and fun nightlife with live music and dancing.

Outstanding beach house

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well maintained and clean. It is located on the beach so the view is great. The owner is very responsive and thorough in instructions. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely fabulous. Me and 8 women go to Orange Beach every year. This is the first time we've stayed in a house. It was so much better than the condos. Lot's closer to the beach. I highly recommend it!!

Perfect for kids! (And adults)

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for a great weekend at the beach. We had several small children with us and the easy access to the pool and beach made the whole experience enjoyable. The house was spacious and everyone had plenty of room to move about. The house was well stocked with towels and kitchen supplies and the large pantry was great for keeping all the food and items we brought with us. The downstairs closet had tons of beach toys for the kids so we didn't need to bring our own. We will definitely be back!

Sandbox by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great beach week in this townhouse. Very clean, nicely appointed and you aren't going to beat the location. We are all animal lovers so the dolphin show (out the back windows) and the sea turtle migration was very fun. We had neighbors during our visit and noise was never an issue. Highly recommend this place.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this home. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and furnished with many of the things we needed. We loved the room with beach toys and chairs and used it to store the items we brought as well. Hoses upstairs and downstairs to rinse the sand off. The owner, Rhonda, was in contact and I feel if anything had gone wrong she would have taken care of it immediately! Another thing we loved was Lartigues seafood pretty much right across the street. We could get fresh seafood and enjoy it on our balcony. If we go back to Orange Beach this will be the house we rent!
