About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom With Water Views

Named one of America's Best Beach Towns by National Geographic!

The Perky Pelican is a beautiful, remodeled 4/3 home. It has an open floor plan and three balconies. It sits just a block from the beach and a mile from Gulf Shores favorite restaurants. It's perfect for families or friends who like to vacation together.

The Perky Pelican is a unique and beautiful home. The open floor plan makes it perfect for family vacations. It has been recently remodeled and has over 2,000 sq.ft. of living area! Many homes are advertised as single family, but are actually duplexes. You will not share this home with anyone else! This home has an awesome overlook room and three balconies. It sits on a quiet street, just one block from the beach and one mile to some of Gulf Shores favorite restaurants and bars.

Guest will have access to all 4 bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, cable, wi-fi, grill as well as boogie boards and floats for the beach!

We love to give any restaurant or local recommendations and be there to help as much as needed. Most of the time we like to give families privacy and feel like our home is their home.

This property is located between the beach and the lagoon, which is great for crabbing or swimming. You can walk to both bodies of water from this home. Also located nearby is Waterville water park, The Track theme park, miniature golf, parasailing, and dining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Nicole and Steve are adventurous love birds from Florida. They've traveled many places together and have lived on both coasts of the country. Once they visited Gulf Shores, they fell in love and decided to stay. Steve is a graduate of the University of Florida, and Nicole is a graduate of the University of Central Florida. They really enjoy everything Gulf Shores has to offer and spend a lot of their free time fishing and diving.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it. It has so many unique and charming features to it. It's a true beach home. The living room balcony lets in so much light and we loved listening to the waves crash from our back yard. The open floor plan is so perfect for large groups and families.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is uniquely located to the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon, with each just walking distance. It has three balconies giving you the ability to open the house up to the warm gulf breeze.
