The Perfect Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely top-notch! Clean, bright, well maintained and perfectly located for a family gathering! We enjoyed the beach, cooked out "downstairs" and played games with plenty of room and some left over. With 7 adults and 6 grandchildren ranging from 14 to 20 we never felt crowded. The beach was great and even those afternoons when we had light showers were enjoyable with lots of room to visit, use our computers and tablets and (of course!) cell phones. We're already making plans to return to "Song of the Sea" in 2018!

Awesome! K & K

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with another family for our spring break adventure. We could not have been happier with the house! It was well maintained, clean and very comfortable. During our stay I wanted to bring something to the owner's attention and he responded promptly, which was greatly appreciated. The only thing that we thought could be improved upon was that the dryer was a bit squeaky. Other than that, we loved our stay in the "Song of the Sea!"

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation. This is house was perfect for our group of 11. The outside shower was such a bonus for us. The kids never took a shower inside! The house was very spacious and accommodated for everyone having their own space. The kitchen was well supplied and there were plenty of bath towels to go around. The only suggestion I would make would be for a full size washer and dryer. With 4 adults and 7 children we kept the apartment size washer and dryer going ALL week! Other than that we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to suit our needs! We will definitely be back next year!

Great week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Song of the Sea. The house is large and very family friendly. The house is made for a large family with plenty of sleeping, eating, and relaxing areas. We loved the downstairs area in the late afternoons. And the shower downstairs was wonderful after a day at the beach. The area is great for biking, fishing, walking, and is also near a boat ramp for boating. We plan to come back next summer.

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

I want to do a detailed review since there isn't much to go on. Tommy was great at answering my NUMEROUS questions. I want to kind of walk you through the house first. Very bottom floor is parking, picnic table, outdoor shower and a "shed" with a full size fridge. Up the stairs and there is a large front balcony and small back one. Kitchen, living, dining, closet with washer/dryer combo, bathroom and two bedrooms. The master had its own VERY small bathroom and a king bed. The other room had two queens. These both had TV's. Up stairs again, there is a loft area with a fold out couch, a small balcony, a bathroom and two bedrooms. One room had a full size bed and a full size futon, other room had a full size bed then a bunk set that was full on bottom and single on top. No TV's upstairs. (small wetbar) that helped with the kids brushing their teeth. The grills are small (there are two) charcoal, served the purpose. Beach chairs are provided, but I think there were only 3 or 4. This house easily fits more than 12 ppl also. The crock pot was a small crock pot if that matters to you. Now the walk, yes its about 100 yards, until you hit the sand, then about another 100 yards to the water line. It is doable, but man its a trek, be prepared. One other thing to be aware of, you are about 17 miles outside of Gulf Shores( from 59) so it was a little bit of a pain, so plan accordingly. Besides that the house was very well stocked with dishes, bath towels, dish towels etc! We would not hesitate to return.

Song of the Sea Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Song of the Sea

The house with its open concept and many amenities was perfect for our large group . We loved the large covered front porch as well as the roomy covered parking with a picnic table and outside hot and cold shower. The beach was beautiful and really close. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. This house was well worth the money. The owners are so easy to deal with. We had a great time.
