Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Simply amazing!! Sea La Vie is beautifully decorated, warm, clean and cozy. Bedrooms were spacious and beds were super comfortable. Plenty of linens, cookware, and sand toys for the kiddos. We enjoyed sitting outside on the screened in back patio. Walking distance to two large pools and private beach!! Pools were well kept and never overly crowded. Added bonus was the golf cart and bikes!! Only an hour and 15 minutes from Pensecola airport and a short car ride to restaurants/attractions. Owners were easy to reach and accomodating. One of the best vacations we have had!! Will definately be returning to Sea La Vie!

Book It! You won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house to soak up all there is in Gulf Shores! Steps away from 2 pools and the beautiful private beach! House is immaculate and owners were very responsive and friendly! Martinique has so many amenities, we never had a dull moment! The location is great because you're not right on the strip so you get peace and quiet to relax and enjoy the views! We will definitely return to this house for another perfect vacation!!

We had such a wonderful vacation. The house is perfect! We had 4 couples stay at the house and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! We enjoyed the pools, hot tub and the beach. The house was very clean and plenty of room! We can't wait to go back again!

Perfect Gulf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week of vacation at Sea La Vie. The house was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 6 kids...the kids loved the 3rd floor loft. We were right next door to the great indoor/outdoor pool and a short walk to the beautiful beach and beach-side pool. The kitchen was very well equipped and the garage was stocked with golf cart and sand toys. I would highly recommend this vacation to others and hope to make it back there someday too!

Who said "There's No Place Like Home"?

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I am writing this review on behalf of my mother who has been enjoying winter's in Alabama for the past 15 years...the last 3 she has had the pleasure of staying at Sea La Vie. I drive my mom down in January and spend a few days and then return in March for a week or so to drive her back north, so I have a very good handle on how the house works for her.

My mom absolutely loves this house. Not only is the house beautifully and tastefully decorated, the location is so convenient to the midpoint pool and just a short walk or cart ride to the beach and beach pool. Scott, the owner, is a pleasure to work with. He is very helpful, attentive and accommodating.

My mom plans to return to Sea La Vie for Jan - Mar for as long she is able. She truly loves this home and considers it her 'home away from home'. As her chauffeur, I also enjoy the break from Northern Michigan winters and have had the opportunity to enjoy a bit of what my mom experiences. I love the peacefulness, beauty and serenity that Martinique and Sea La Vie offer.

I highly recommend staying at Sea La Vie on your next trip to the lovely Alabama Gulf Coast!!

Great space for our family!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Sea La Vie this past Christmas and into the new year. The home provided plenty of space for our family of 7 ranging in age from 9-42. The beds were super comfortable and the owner was very responsive to any issues or questions we had. The only negative we had was the appliances. The refrigerator, range, and dishwasher are all showing extreme signs of wear and tear. We very quickly figured out it was easier to hand wash the dishes vs utilizing the dishwasher as it never got all of the dishes or glasses/cups clean anyway. The oven temp/timer has two or three buttons not working, unfortunately it was the 9 and 0 that didn't work so we had to get creative in setting the temp (348 for 350 and so on). The seller graciously sent a brand new crock pot down so we could use one while we were vacationing! This was very nice and convenient! We had wanted to book again for this coming year but the owner took a one-week rental during our time so that didn't work out in our favor :( Again, great layout, comfortable furniture, and peaceful spot in Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan area!

Owner's Response: Lori, thank you for the review and I am so glad you and your family enjoyed Sea La Vie over the holiday's!! I also want to thank you for bringing to my attention the appliances showing wear and tear. I will do whatever it takes during my maintenance stay in April to ensure Sea La Vie stays in 5 star shape! I hope you all visit us again soon, and sorry about the reservation that jumped in and booked over Christmas next year before we could accommodate your request. Have a wonderful 2017! -Scott
