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.

Why Nicole Graham chose Alabama

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous and perfect for our group of 8. We were just right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I will definitely be visiting again. Steve and Nicole were wonderful.

Great Location and Beautiful Home

Our family had a fabulous time during our stay! This house was perfect for us and a fantastic location! Just a block to the beach and within minutes of anything you'd want to do while here in Gulf Shores. I would definitely reccomend this rental.

USSSA 9u Baseball World Series Champions

  • 5 of 5

We were in Gulf Shores for the USSSA Baseball World Series. The Perky Pelican beach house is absolutely lovely. My family had an amazing vacation and the beach house was the perfect setting to relax in after our busy days. Being 1 block from the beach and lagoon was nice and quiet without worrying about the kids sneaking off to the water had we gotten a waterfront property nor were there a lot of traffic to worry about. We have a large family and with prior approval exceeded the 10 person capacity by adding another family to our group (granted 8 of the group are under the age of 13) and there was still plenty of room for everyone. Used to cooking for large masses I lugged my x-large cooking pots with us, to be pleasantly surprised that she had several large pots as well. There is also a decent sized pantry that easily housed groceries for our 8 day stay (I have 4 active boys that have very healthy appetites, so pantry space is very important). The caretaker was very nice and helpful (we needed a mechanic referral). The most exciting part about our trip was My little guy and his team are the World Series Champions! If we return to Gulf Shores we will definitely want to stay at the Perky Pelican again.

Property was as advertised on inside. There was plenty of space to help make the stay enjoyable.

  • 3 of 5

The property was good. It does need some continued attention with some of the bedding ( box springs in one bedroom was broken ) and some outside cosmetics to make the property cleaner. Decking in back old, carpet on entry steps worn and did not appear clean. Inside of house was good and downstairs floors were clean. Carpet in upstairs could use a good cleaning. The owners were very nice to work with!! There was an issue with the TV's in the house not working. The main TV was worked on at the end of our stay for the last couple of days but none of the bedroom TV's worked. The owner was understanding and worked with us on that issue. Very nice people. The home is in walking distance to a nice part of the beach in Gulf Shores. That was good. We would recommend the house, it would just be better with more attention. Owners were first class to deal with.

Great home for families

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Perky Pelican for a week and it is a great home. It is close enough to everything and just far away to get away from it all.
