About Portside Vacation Properties

We purchased this house in 2013 on Valentine's Day. What a better gift to each other and our family to have a Beach House on the Island to make family memories for years to come.

Portside Vacation Properties purchased this house in 2013

Why Portside Vacation Properties chose Alabama

Lagoon living is a way of life. Its close enough to the Gulf Ocean (walking distance one block back) but the benefits of Private Lagoon Front are endless. Swimming is perfect in our own PRIVATE BEACH setting with no major wave action. Calm warm waters just outside our back door. The view from the house is to die for and the neighborhood is perfect for a family atmosphere. Fishing and Crabbing from your own PRIVATE PIER. did I mention the LARGE PRIVATE FENCED YARD for your Salty Dog?

What makes this house unique

Water Front with a private dock. Fishing & Crabbing from your very own private pier. Private Fenced Yard. Salty Dog Friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family felt right at home with your lovely house. Our kids LOVED the pier for fishing and the Lagoon is perfect for swimming in. The Beach is one block away, an easy 2 minute walk with the coolers and umbrella. Great location with-in minutes from every major attraction in Gulf Shores. Would love to make this an annual trip. thanks for your hospitality in accommodating our group. See you next year.

Perfect Mother-Daughter-dogs long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My (now adult) daughter and I have been coming to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach a couple of times a year since 2010, and I have no idea how we've missed this hidden gem! We always travel with our dogs, and finding a pet-friendly rental for a long weekend like we just had or our two week vacation every summer is not always easy. Salty Dog not only invites pets, it caters to them! Our dogs loved the yard and after the first trip down the pier, didn't even mind the lapping water under the deck! (be careful with small dogs under ten pounds, there are a few 'escape zones' , but don't let that stop you!) Being outside in the evenings is super quiet and relaxing, and the hot tub is certainly a bonus! Even though the main strip is just around the corner, you feel secluded. From a location perspective, it is the perfect combination of on the water and near the beach, and the view from the kitchen window in the morning can't be beat! The house is coastal and welcoming, and plenty of room for one or more families to spend time together without stepping on each others toes. Everything you need is at your disposal, and if you didn't remember to bring your leashes from home...well you will find three like-new retractable leashes to use, because we forgot them! ha...which we realized four hours into the drive home when stopping at a rest area to walk the dogs. yikes! We will absolutely be returning to the Salty Dog on a regular basis! After 6 years of vacationing, we have found our perfect spot. Enjoy!!

Wonderful Time with the family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, the pier and the ability to bring our beloved dog Jenny. Having the view of the Little Lagoon in the morning and walking to the beach in the afternoon was great. Kitchen was well furnished. The hot tub was a added bonus and the set up underneath the home is where we spent our diners together. Home in a quiet location. We would and will stay there again if in the Gulf Shores area again. Memories galore.

Wonderfull place with a great view close to everything in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

Thanks do much for the family memories. We were pleasantly surprised by how well your house is supplied from the kitchen / clean sheets / bath towels etc. So many places we go are NOT what is advertised. The pictures on your website are exactly what we found when we arrived. Very smooth check in process allowed us to arrive LATE and get in with no worries. Your BBQ ROCKS!! yes, it was used every day. MUCH APPRECIATED, see you next year!

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is setup perfectly, loved being able to walk on the pier and fish. My son especially loved the private pier. This was the first time I ever rented a house, I usually rent a condo on the beach side but I thought I would change it up this year and stay lagoon side and all I can say is we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan on staying here again. Thank you
