Overview

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!

Beautiful home w/Perdido Bay a few feet away

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the most charming and well-appointed VRBO which we’ve ever been fortunate enough to enjoy. The “beach-themed” decor is really well done; the beds are very comfortable. The owner has everything her guests would ever want in a vacation home. If you are looking for a wonderful get-away, can’t think of another VRBO on the Alabama Coast which could fill the bill better than “Latitude Adjustment.”

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with two grandkids, ages 9 and 10, and our 11 year old chiweenie. Everyone and dog, loved it. The house is very spacious and comfortable, nicely decorated with stunning views of perdido bay. Bedrooms were roomy and the beds were very comfortable. Nice selection of games for that occasional afternoon thunderstorm. There is a nice large screened porch overlooking the bay where we spent lots of time watching dolphins, sea birds, and our grandson fish in the bay. There is also access in the back yard to a boat house, on a creek, perfect for kayaking and swimming. Also has a night light for night fishing.

We tried crabbing too but never had a lot of success with that.

It is a bit of a drive to Gulf Shores for beaches and restaurants, about 30 minutes, but the trade off is the peaceful quiet on the bay.

Would love to visit again!
