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!

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!
