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 Alabama

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.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides of the house for our wedding and reception and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The owner was extremely helpful, friendly, and responded almost immediately to the few questions we had before and during our stay. The view is beautiful from all balconies, parking wasn't an issue, and the rooms are very spacious. The house is in a perfect location with not a lot of beach traffic, great restaurants close by, and minutes from the grocery store. We definitely recommend this rental!

What a beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well maintained, immaculate and clean inside and nicely decorated. Right on the beach with private access to the water and plenty of parking. The house is located close to major shopping as well as local favorites. We found the house well stocked and felt right at home the moment walked inside. While this unit is a duplex, NOT ONCE did we hear our neighbors nor did they hear us. We were very pleased with the communications and clear instructions (for checking in and checking out) from Rhonda. We would definitely stay again in the Sandbox!

Wonderful house with two king suites. Just perfect size for my family. Rhonda was so helpful to provide needed baby crib and checked on us to be sure we were settling in.

Splendid Labor Day retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful beach home! Sandbox is in the perfect location, the home is spotless and beautifully decorated! You are just steps from the gorgeous beach. The home is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. We found everything we needed right on hand including beach chairs! Our favorite spot was the third floor balcony with a clear view of the beautiful beach and water. We even sat there the day it rained and watched the storms go across the water. Rhonda is wonderful to work with, so if you are looking for the perfect family getaway, Sandbox is right for you! We hope to go back in the future!!!

Fabulous week

  • 5 of 5

There were 11 of us during this week and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is stocked so well and the huge refrigerator was wonderful. The beds are comfortable and we slept so well. One day we had 20 people there and we were still not crowded with the big den area and the the huge back porch. Rhonda is such a super nice lady that always gets right back to you if you have questions or need anything. We have stayed twice now with Rhonda and if we get to go next year it will be at the Sandbox or Aqua Vista.

Highly Recommended Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental is in excellent condition--very clean, nicely furnished, and with a kitchen that is well appointed. The location is convenient to shopping, dining, and entertainment. Particularly noteworthy was the property manager's commitment to customer service. Rhonda always replied to my inquiries in a timely manner, went out of her way to help in the planning of my mom's 75th birthday party that we held on the ground level of the unit, and made sure there were solar lights to illuminate the path to the beach. The nearby high-density condo flooded the beach with lounge chairs and renters packed in like sardines, which made us really appreciate the relatively quiet beach associated with this property. The swimming pool was a nice option, especially for small children.
