Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Nicole Graham

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.

Nicole Graham purchased this house in 2013

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.

The Perky Pelican was the perfect vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 adults & 4 kids) stayed at the Perky Pelican July 23-30, 2016 and we had an amazing time! The house accommodated all of us comfortably. The balcony was a great place for morning coffee. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes tops. Lagoon is a quiet street, but just one block from Beach Blvd. We were just a short drive from all kinds of shops, activities and restaurants. I highly suggest the Perky Pelican!!!

Hart family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We as a family of 10 loved the house. The walk to the beach wasn't far plus the area was peaceful and relaxing. We plan to make it a yearly tradition.

There were lots of good restaurants and shopping close by

Great Location and Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family over Spring Break, the house was lovely and a short walk to the beach. The location was perfect. When I was looking at the area I wasn't sure if I wanted to be in Orange Beach, Gulf Shores or Fort Morgan. I feel like I made the right decision. We were in all of the areas and each one was lovely and wonderful in its own way, but we were really wanting to be in a beach house instead of a condo and close to restaurants and shopping. The Gulf Shores area was the perfect fit. The beach in Gulf Shores is amazing, very fine sugary sand, and it is clean and welcoming. I would definitely come back to this area, and would definitely stay at the Perky Pelican again. Nicole and Steve were thoughtful and accommodating. You won't be disappointed.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It fit us ten girls perfectly. The lay out was great for hanging out and there was enough space to do your own thing when you felt the need! The balconies were a great to sit out on, and the neighbors were wonderful as well. It was so close to the beach, just a short walk! Actually not being right on the beach provided a level of privacy, comfort, and a little extra feeling of safety. Also there were great restaurants and bars nearby, most of the best ones only a mile away at most. The owner (Nicole) was phenomenal and so sweet and constantly checking in. We will 100% be renting from her again. I advise whether a group of girls or family to 100% rent from Nicole. The trip was great and the house was phenomenal!
