Best beach and golf vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property for a beach, golf and family vacation.

The home exceeded our expectations. It is extremely well maintained and comfortable.

It is a short walk to the beach and pool, associated with an outstanding golf course and close to all of the family entertainment in the area.

The deck views were remarkable and the sky at night from the third floor deck is breathtaking.

The owners were extremely friendly and responsive.

We can't wait to get back.

I have recommended this property to my daughter and friends.

Decked Out - Fantastic stay, great property

  • 5 of 5

Decked out is a great place for a beach vacation. We stayed during our guys golf outing. Each bedroom has a full bath, cable tv, and deck that works out great. The kitchen / living room is an open room concept. We enjoyed the ocean breeze on the deck off the kitchen each morning for coffee. Beach is a short walk away. There is even a swimming pool just across the street.

There is a newly added beach club close by with full menu, bar, swimming pool and beach access. We enjoyed a nice meal and drinks until sunset.

The golf course Kiva Dunes provided an excellent golf experience, staff was great and the golf course is so nice and a very fun layout.

The owner is a pleasure to deal with, I highly recommend the property for a vacation rental.

Bermuda in the US

  • 5 of 5

Decked Out was wonderful! Gulf Shores was rated one of the top 10 small town beach destinations. It is truly a gem. The beach has white, clean sand. The water was wonderful and refreshing. The crowds were minimal. The shopping and restaurants were 5 star. There is plenty to do for all ages. I recommend arriving by ferry, which leaves Dauphin Island and is minutes from Decked Out/Kiva Dunes. The home is lovely - right out of Southern Living magazine. Everything a family or group would need for a perfect getaway vacation.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Decked Out. The owner was very helpful and provided lots of information about local restaurants, activities and shopping. In our party we had six adults. We comfortably stayed for a week enjoying the beach daily and the pool almost as often. Both very close by. There was internet which was important for both work and to check on kids at home. The bedrooms each have a deck, bathroom and television. But we spent most of our time at the house in the kitchen and living room. There was lots of seating so we could enjoy meals together, game night, cocktails and even gather to watch a favorite program together. The house had all the beach supplies we needed to relax on the beach which was never crowded. It had everything we needed to make our trip comfortable and fun. Can’t wait to go back.

Girls getaway trip!

  • 5 of 5

Had. A fantastic girls getaway and birthday celebration in April . All Decked Out was the perfect setting to host 6 women in fine style . The location is spectacular only steps to the pool and beach ... Enjoyed both daily. The grounds are lovely and a great place to walk in the mornings and evening. We made excellent use of the owners suggestions for local restaurants and places for cocktails. Loved Sassy Bass and Lulu's. The house itself was perfect and slept very comfortably all of us! We enjoyed game nights, spa treatments and drinks on the balcony and by the beach. Can't wait to go back ... I would love to take my family .

Great getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family stay here for the week, it was amazing!! We went to the beach everyday morning and then to the pool in the evening. Having the pool across the street was awesome. My husband and I took advantage of the tennis courts as well. This house was perfect for two families, plenty of space for everyone. We will definitely rent this house again.
