About the Property

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
