About the property

4 BR 3 BA Beach House with Private Pier

This lovely beach home has new owners as of July 2017. Its former name was "Cheers on the Pier" and is now called "Southern Palms." The owners have upgraded the exterior, installed palm trees front and back, and are working to upgrade the kitchen among many other improvements before the busy summer of 2018. The new owners take great pride in their vacation home and are very detail oriented. We are looking forward to sharing updated photos once the progress is complete.

This 4 bedroom 3 bath Beach House sits on Little Lagoon off West Beach and has a private pier. It boasts an open floor plan and is ideal for large family vacations. The pier and fishing area has been recently built to allow for fun on the water - bring your jet ski or rent one and have fun on the water!

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to create meals for the whole family. The Kitchen, Dining Room and large Den area has Tile flooring. The Sunroom is accessible from both the Den and Master Bedroom. The bedrooms have beautiful hardwood flooring with closets and book shelves. Flat screen TV's are in each room except the Sun Room and Twin Bedroom. Some new furnishings have been installed as well.

Free wifi is provided!

A large deck on both the front and back of the house. The back deck connects to a walkway down to Little Lagoon.

Rear deck was our living room for the week

  • 4 of 5

This was not our first visit to the Gulf Shores but was our first time to stay on Little Lagoon - loved it! And this property was perfect for our family of 3 couples, 3 children and our dog. The highlights were definitely the pier, for our boat and fishing off of the deck, and the rear deck of the house that we closed off with baby gates to enjoy morning coffee, meals and amazing sunsets over the peaceful Lagoon. The house was nicely furnished with ample space, exactly as described. The kitchen and original bathrooms are older, nothing fancy, and there is a new tiled shower in the third bathroom. The bedding was good with the exception of the double. We brought Bluetooth speakers and used the wifi to stream music indoors and on the deck. The washer dryer were great, bring beach towels. And we used the lower level patio for a blowup kiddie pool, and used both the charcoal and gas grills. There is beach access across the street and was not crowded, we brought a canopy and beachchairs. But the little sandy area at the Lagoon was a better play area for our little ones. We were content to cook and spent most of our week at the house or on the Lagoon. We ventured out for yoga at Glow Yoga, massages with Sara at Sundance, fine dining at Fishers Orange Beach, and the Pirate and Princess breakfast at the Hangout one morning. Randy Hilsman with At The Beach Vacations handled our reservations and were responsive before and during our stay. Overall this property was a slam dunk, a good value, great location, and we are making plans for a repeat next year.

Overall, the perfect house and dock for a private stay in Gulf Shores with lagoon & beach access!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the size of the house, sleeping accommodations, general decor, the spacious but protected garage, the covered porches, and the well maintained dock with roof. We have rented 4 different houses in Gulf Shores over 12 years. We will look no further! The only challenges we had were with the missing remotes for the bedroom tvs, the dated oven that cooks inconsistently, and the disorganization of the kitchen cookware/utensils.

Overall it was ok. We enjoyed trip. House had a few issues.

  • 4 of 5

Master bdrm needs a real door knob. I have arthritis, deadbolt knob was very difficult for me. Also needs a TV. Newly renovated didn't live up to expectations. Kitchen needs updated. Deck/stairs had nails and screws sticking up. Many repairs were "rigged" and unprofessional. Backdoor slams! Fold out couch in sunroom had no sheets for bed. Grill is old and nasty. Extra pillows had no extra pillow cases.

Check out clean up: don't remove mattress pads? ALL bedding should be washed and replaced with clean linens for next guests. Really gross and completely unacceptable!

Like I said overall ok.

They are addressing updates and upgrades. This beach house will be unavailable for several weeks at the end of July 2017 through September while significant improvements are being constructed / installed. The house will be transformed into a high-end beach home for guests to enjoy at the discretion of the new owners. We apologize for the unpleasantries and look forward to updating this listing as each new improvement is completed.

Great location but....too many issues

  • 1 of 5

So while the location and the layout of the house is nice there were too many problems that needed to be fixed while we were in the house. Randy and Hannah did do a great job of getting each issues fixed but who really wants to deal with that when you are on vacation and paying a nice price for time away right?? The air went out first, then Cindy (tropical storm) for a few days and a portion of the ceiling in the living room came down, nice issue to wake up to...then the garbage deposal fell thru the sink and it must have happened before as there was nasty water down under the sink in cleaning supplies left behind. Yuck! When you enter the house it has a very nice layout but I had asked several questions before i booked and one of them was there TV's in all rooms and i was assured there was except in 1 but once we got there the only room that had a TV was the living room and it was prettty small at that, and when you have a house full of young adults that want to go to their room at night and watch TV it becomes an issue not to have this. On the one TV the remotes barely worked and DVD player remote did not exist. I will give a shout out to the cleaning crew the house was very clean when we came in for the 8 days. It would have been great customer service to us if they would have offered a refunded discount to us for all the problems but that was not the case and i am not a person to ask for it. I sure hope they can get all of these issues fixed with the new owners Before they rent it out again. Warning....Pictures and descriptions of this house are deceiving.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback regarding your stay at Cheers on the Pier Beach House. You are right with the list of items mentioned that went awry during your stay. We do our best to keep everything in working order so maintenance issues do not disturb our guests during their well deserved vacations. However, strangely several items happened to fail and we extend our sincere apologies. As you are aware, this vacation home has been bought by new owners in July of 2017. They are working hard to identify/correct any items out of order and will be installing new TVs throughout the home. Again, our apologies in your disappointment. We strive to provide a positive, fun beach experience for all our guests and hope that you would consider Cheers again in the future.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently rented this property. This was a great place for a family vacation, the owner was easy to work with and responded quickly to emails. The home is as pretty as in the pictures. We had two small children with us and they loved the beach area at the end of the property. Each night we would gather on the deck and have dinner at sunset, the views of the sun going down over the water were amazing. We brought our jet ski and were able to use it from the dock at the house. The walk to the beach was easy, even with small children. There is lots of room for everyone in the house and it is outfitted with everything we needed for a great vacation. We will be back!
