About the property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom second tier home with gulf views sleeps 12; dog friendly

Fantastic views, steps to the beach, beautiful new kitchen with granite countertops, glass tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, two master bedrooms on main floor, covered parking and dog friendly. This single family home offers a unique location in the quiet community of Surfside Shores. Considered a second tier home but located on a dead end street with no streets to cross. Just step into the sand and walk any easy 50 to 60 steps to the gulf. The community is only 14 miles West of Gulf Shores and close to Historic Fort Morgan. Enjoy the seclusion and uncrowded beaches of Fort Morgan with activities and majority of restaurants just a short drive away.

The four bedroom, three and a half bathroom property offers awesome views of the Gulf from a wraparound deck on the south facing front and western side of the home. The home is a well planned 1700 square feet on two levels providing plenty of space for family and friends to gather. The living area offers Gulf views and is open to the dining area and kitchen area creating a wonderful space for everyone to eat and relax together comfortably. Two master bedrooms featuring new king sized Sealy IComfort bedding are located on the main floor along with two full bathrooms. Two additional bedrooms are located upstairs and share a hall bathroom with double vanity. A utility half bath is located on the main floor featuring brand new Magtag washer/dryer with utility sink handy for rinsing swimwear. The living room and each bedroom is equipped with a television and free wi-fi is provided.

Great second tier location and just a fews steps to the beach without the beach front price. Head off to the nearby historic Ft. Morgan to explore, take the ferry to Dauphin Island for the day, ride bikes, watch the dolphins play or head across the street to Gulf Shores Marina for fresh seafood a cold drink and a beautiful sunset.

A maximum of two (2) dogs are allowed with owner approval at no additional cost. If damages are caused by the pet, the cost of the damage may be deducted from damage deposit.

2018 will be our first rental season for this particular home.....please see our reviews in listings #3560524 and #4095296 for further guest feedback as to how we manage our vacation properties.

Great location for the price!

  • 5 of 5

The beach is just a short walk through the sand dunes, but bring flip flops because there are a few sand spurs. It was nice to have a good selection of beach chairs and toys furnished. The view was great and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the stay and would rent again.

Beautiful house and great owner!

  • 5 of 5

The house is remodeled and the kitchen and bathrooms are beautifully done! Some minor things were broke when we arrived but she had someone sent out and had them fixed within 24 hours. I gave it a 5 but the kitchen could use a few more items for cooking (we bought pitchers and a griddle). There were a few storage containers but most didn’t have lids. Loved the closeness to the beach and there were chairs and extra sand toys to use! We will definitely stay here again!

A wonderful vacation. The beach house was extremely clean. Great kitchen, great appliances, great views. Very private. So many extras we were not expecting. We loved the location

Everything was great! The pictures of the view does not do it justice. Awesome view. We were a group of 10 with 4 being under 6 yrs of age. The short walk to the beach was not a problem. Everything was clean. Enjoyed it tremendously. Would highly recommend.

Great updated kitchens and bathrooms, short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for our two families. We each had a master bedroom and an upstairs bedroom for our kids. We had plenty of room and could have easily managed with a couple more people.

The house has a trail right out to the beach and is currently next to two empty lots. This leaves plenty of space on the beach for everyone to spread out on.

The kitchen and bathrooms have recently been remodeled and are very nice. We especially liked that the appliances were higher end models, including the washer and dryer.

One of the nicest things about staying in this home were the little thoughtful things the owner has equipped the house with. There was a beach cart, plenty of chairs, a baby gate, and steps for kids to reach the sink.

I asked the owner a few questions before our trip, and she was always very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.
