Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath roomy beach house with deck and views of the beautiful Gulf

The Lazy Turtle is an adorable beach house and a great place to stay. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths and is conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, parks and is RIGHT across the street from the beach. Home offers nice furnishings, vaulted ceilings throughout and a charming beach decor. The living room is open and spacious with lots of natural light. It offers tons of windows to display the beautiful view with a door leading out to the spacious deck. The Kitchen has a breakfast bar that can seat 4 people plus a full dining area. The kitchen has recently been updated to include new appliances and every kitchen item we could think of! Comfortably Sleeps 8 and has covered parking plus a nice sunny deck for your outdoor enjoyment. Make this your vacation home away from home!

**For those who stayed prior to 2014, we have new windows and a new entry door onto the deck/on the beach side of the house ***(see indoor pics)

Recently updated - While the color scheme is bright and cheery, the walls are not quite a bright as the pictures - it is more of a salmon color than the vivid pink/orange you see throughout the house :) .

In addition, we provide a 'starter' supply of bath and hand soaps, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry and dishwasher soap and garbage bags. Full linens and towels (including beach towels) are provided and a full size washer/dryer is conveniently located in the hall for your use.

FAMILY FRIENDLY - NOT A PARTY HOUSE - MINIMUM AGE LIMIT OF 25 STRICTLY ENFORCED

Why Cathy E chose Alabama

Gulf Shores has long been our favorite vacation spot. We wanted a place where our family and friends as well as your family could also share this wonderful little beach town. It's our own little piece of paradise!

What makes this house unique

We chose to allow most pets, with prior approval, as we too are animal lovers and always travel with our dachshund. Finding a place to accept pets can be difficult. We hope you appreciate the added benefit and take care when you do bring your four legged family member to ensure they do not damage the place so that we can continue to offer this benefit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time this past week at the Lazy Turtle. The house was perfect for our family. The beds are really comfy and the kitchen was very well setup for any type of cooking we needed to do! Thanks again for the very easy process of renting with you.

wonderful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property was perfect, not too far from shops and food and close to access to the beach. The interior space was perfect for eating watching the game and good conversation. Very clean and well kept with all you need.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. The cottage is well stocked with almost anything you could need and very clean. Having a full kitchen with all the small appliances made it feel like home. Loved having a full size washer and dryer; came home with all clean clothes. Cathy was just wonderful and quick to respond to any question we had.

There are beach toys and chairs along with a charcoal grill. There was even a plastic pool for my grandson to play in while we grilled. The walk to the beach is very short and it was never crowded even though we were there in late June.

We are already planning to come again to Gulf Shores and this is where we will be staying.

Holiday weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place - love the layout, clean, well furnished - had everything we needed. Wasn't too bad getting to the beach - we were able to walk through another house area on the beach side that was not occupied.

Will stay there again!
