About the property

Sleeps 8-10. 3 Bedroom 2.5 bath and outdoor shower. With optional boat-slip

Nestled on a quiet peninsula and overlooking beautiful Perdido Bay, this 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath offers the perfect place for a vacation getaway! The best of both worlds is at your fingertips...the pleasure of a tranquil waterfront setting as well as the convenience of the beaches, entertainment, restaurants and outlet shopping just minutes away. Enjoy kayaking up close and personal with Dolphins. Bring your boat to launch and dock on the pier, or contact the owner for use of the boat house and boat lift. Palmetto/ Spring branch Creek, behind the house, is brackish with a sandy bottom that's perfect for swimming, skiing and tubing. If you wish, bring your castnet and fishing rods for more entertainment.

Enjoy sitting on the screened porch watching the sunset on the bay, or lounge in the rocking chairs on the back porch while grilling your fresh caught fish. The kitchen is well stocked for all of your cooking needs. The counter height bar seats 6 in addition to the dining table for 8. As an added bonus, there's also a newly built, private, walk-in, outdoor shower complete with hot water and a changing area.... Perfect for wet swimsuit changes or cleaning up before going in for the day!

There are 3 bedrooms:

Master bedroom: king bed

2nd bedroom: king bed and twin bed

3rd bedroom: One twin

One full

One twin over twin bunk

One rollaway twin

Both master and guest face the bay and have french doors that open up onto the screened porch. The bunk room is very kid friendly and can sleep 6.

If you desire to eat outside, the screened-in porch provides you with a great option as well.

A wooden table seats ten, or enjoy eating on the relaxing furniture, swing or rocking chairs on the other side of the porch. You can enjoy a wonderful candlelight dinner at the table or just hangout on the swing and watch for shooting stars, fireworks or just look at all the lights across the way. The back porch houses a stainless, charcoal grill where you can prepare your fare. It has a table for 4 and rocking chairs to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while watching the resident blue heron family or the sounds of nature.

An extra fridge in the laundry room is available for use, if needed. All bathrooms as well as the linen closet is amply stocked. You'll find plenty of games, cards, a Wii game system, books, 3 youth kayaks, an adult size tandem Kayak, scooters, swings and a hammock to entertain the whole family.

If crowds are what you need, the Gulf of Mexico, with its' sugar white sandy beaches, is just a short drive away. The faster pace of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is close, but not too close, and offers great restaurants, sightseeing, attractions and shopping. Pontoon and speed boats are available for rent and fishing boats can be chartered for off shore and in shore trips at many of the marinas. Para sailing, Dolphin tours and sailing are also available. If shopping is your thing the Tanger Outlet is just a short 20 minute drive away in Foley.

Come enjoy easy living, and leave feeling decompressed, rested and rejuvenated!

'Latitude Adjustment' The Perfect Getaway!

Great home. Great location. Perfectly named.

  • 5 of 5

This home was simply perfect. We had a group rangining in age from 9 to 80 and everyone found their perfect spot. The home is decorated tastefully and had all the amenities you could want--plenty of towels, cooking utensils and dishware and enough space to allow everyone room to relax. Our kids were thoroughly entertained with the selection of games available. The best feature was the backyard which provided a small oasis of sand, a hammock and plenty of seating for impromptu picnics. The screened porch was a favorite spot for early risers to catch the sunrise over the bay or to sneak away for an afternoon nap.

There were plenty of nearby spots for grocery shopping making dining in very easy and affordable. Don't pass up a visit to nearby Sweet Home Farm for some fabulous locally made cheeses. The home's location in Elberta made day tripping to Orange Beach very easy. The property owner/manager Terri was very responsive to any question we had leading up to our arrival paving the way to a smooth check-in. This property was comfortable, spacious and inviting and provided the perfect family getaway!

No detail overlooked!

  • 5 of 5

Latitude Adjustment is truly the perfect getaway! Terri is a gracious host and she equips her home with everything you need. I can't think of one thing that was missing! The house was very comfortable, clean, and the furnishings beautiful, yet functional. We loved being able to look out of the front door and back door and see water on both sides. The screened porch was my favorite morning and evening spot! The beds were very comfortable and the ample supply of towels (and not the cheap condo type) was extra nice. We found everything that we needed in the kitchen, yet we didn't do a lot of indoor cooking. Had a little trouble getting the grill going outside, but sure did enjoy the steaks and hamburgers we purchased from nearby Elberta Grocery. Terri was at the house when we arrived with our boat and showed us where to tie up. She said it wouldn't move, and she was right! The creek side is very calm and the boat house has plenty of room to get your fishing gear out and organized. The only thing wrong was that we weren't there long enough to enjoy it more!

Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down, the best!!! House was amazing. Plenty of room!! Beds were fabulous! It rained our entire trip but that didn't stop us. We had 6 boys from ages 13-6. (And a 17 mo old) that fished every single day!!! Flipped off the dock!!! Oh ...and the Dolphins!!! The Dolphins were there twice a day everyday!!!

Jelly fish were everywhere at the beaches so we only went twice (all were stung at least once :/ ) and only stayed about an hour. (Beaches are about 30 min from house, not a bad drive for the day) Everyone wanted to come back to the house!!

Owners were so helpful with any questions we had from start to finish!!! (And I had a lot lol).

Sad to be back home but am looking forward to going back as soon as we can! Great family place that is relaxing, peaceful and fun!! This house was a God send for us!!! Thank you Terri for such a fabulous place to rest and enjoy vacation, the way it is intended to be!!!

Book it, you won't regret it!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and that you enjoyed your stay. The dolphin never seem to let us down, they are always around. Glad to hear that the jellies stayed at the Gulf beaches and not ours so the kids could enjoy the water. Looking forward to having you back.
