Down for the Alabama Coastal Triathlon

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people stay in the house with 5 participating in the Alabama Coastal Triathlon. The accommodations were perfect for this event. At less than a mile from The Hangout, which is race central, it was easy to get back and forth. There was plenty of space for the whole group. The 6 empty nesters stayed in the main house and the back house was perfect for the younger couple and their 2 children. We cooked one night on the barrel grill and one night in the kitchen (mostly left overs from the night before). We never really felt cramped, and it turned out to be a perfect athletic getaway! I would recommend this house for any family or friend get together.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Surfs Up and took my family for a full week in October during Shrimp Fest and had a blast. There was easy acccess to the beach and plenty of room for all 10 of us. Had trouble with wifi but everything else was perfect. We enjoyed sitting under the house in the evenings and talking and listening to music. We will definitely do it again!!

Great time!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast and wish we had more time. Easy access to the beach and walking distance to Gulf Shore Parkway. The house was roomy and we did not encounter any issues. We were there just 3 nights and kept busy during those nights and did not get to experience "under the house" as much as we wanted. We will definitely be back and Surf's Up will be our choice for our family!! Thank you!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Surf's Up and had a wonderful time. We had 6 adults and 6 children ranging in age from 2 -15 and the house suited our group perfectly. As stated in another review, the pictures accurately describe what you will find upon arrival. Very clean, well stocked and great access to the beach. The play area under the house came in very handy when Tropical Storm Cindy visited and we were unable to go to the beach. Great place for a family vacation!

Located in the heart of the Festival district directly across from the beach with deeded access. Also, 100 yards away from the public beach access which has restrooms and bath house. Great place to stay any time of the year, especially during Hangout Music Fest and Shrimp Fest...easy walk to the festivals.

Walk to restaurants, shopping, the beach, grocery stores, and more....all within blocks. The main hub of the public beach is just a few blocks away.....beaming with live entertainment nightly, great food, souvenir shops, parasailing, beach volleyball, and more. Canoe and kayak rentals just a block to the right. Waterville water park is just a 8 block walk or short ride away!
