Best Gulf Shores house we have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling with a large group to Gulf Shores for a number of years now and have stayed in 6 different houses. This house is by far the best we have stayed in. The views were amazing, everything was very clean and well-kept, and there was plenty of room. The porches are tile instead of wood which makes a huge difference as all the salt in the air just eats away and rusts the wood decks we have had in the past. They are also very large and have plenty of seating. The pool is on the smaller side (you're at the beach, you don't need a huge pool) but the area around the pool is very well-kept and great for a large group to bbq and hang out. The pool was certainly big enough for the kids to play in every night though. Both units were very open concept with a very large kitchen and living room areas and views of the beach / ocean.

There was one problem we had with one of the air conditioning units but we called in and it was fixed and everything running great again within 2 hours of us calling.

We will for sure rent this house again as everything was very nice (the decks alone are worth it) and well-kept. The maintenance people responded quickly and were very nice to deal with (you don't get that a lot). I would recommend this house to any large groups that want to have a great experience.

The Show Me group

  • 4 of 5

The house is very large. The photos do not do it justice. Highly recommend but let it be known the couches are not sleepers. And the bedroom in the 3rd level does not have a door. The door is broken off and not replaced. But the houses are really, really nice. The porches are wonderful and very large with ample furniture. The pool also is bigger than what it looks like; worked out wonderful. We loved the key code to get in to the unit so that we didn't have to worry about keys. The description doesn't really say anything about a very nice deck under the house that goes in towards the pool area. There is a table and chairs with a Tiki bar and grill. The only issue is it would be nice if it had another table so we could have eaten out there. The amenities in the kitchen did lack some and the beds were not very comfortable, but doable.

Our biggest complaint is the stairs.... 4 flights up to the top unit and 2 flights to the bottom unit. No elevator and really hard for those with health issues. If it weren't for so many stairs, we would rent this unit again and again.

If you are a relatively healthy group I would recommend.
