A terrific stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week beginning with being welcomed by the owner. The pool was perfect for the children to enjoy especially when the ocean was too rough one day. The kitchen was the best equipped that we have ever seen. Hopefully, we can be back next year.

Money well spent. We would return! Rarely left the location as it had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Clean, small but beautiful and well maintained pool, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, fantastic beach of white sand bordered by sea oats. Responsive owner made sure our stay was a good one. Quiet neighborhood but 5 minutes from anything. We would return to this property without hesitation.

Great vacation at Lady Sunset.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation at Lady Sunset. Property is in a great location and very well maintained. It is furnished with everything anyone would need during their stay. Owners are great to work with and will address any issue you have if something were to come up. Great place to stay and look forward to going back in the future.

A great family vacation in Gulf Shores.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 18 spent the last week from July 23-30, 2016 in this house. It has a number of great assets. The house was very clean. It was ready before our scheduled check-in time. Each bedroom has an attached bath (especially important as we had seven teenage girls). You are located close to the heart of the town with all needed services in easy driving distance ( Desotos is a good value for a family). The house is right on the beach. The beach is not crowded (we did not realize how wonderful that was until we visited the state pier and observed the number of tourists from the nearby towering condos). The manager lives next door so that problems or needs are quickly remedied. If we were returning to the area next year, we would definitely re-book without hesitation

There are a couple of cautions that need noted that might impact your satisfaction. First, this is a duplex and you do not pick who shares the house. You are not guaranteed to have a wonderful group of fellow Missourians like we did. Second, the living area is small for 18 people if everyone wishes to be there at the same time. Third, if you have someone in your group whose idea of an ideal vacation is to spend hours in the kitchen preparing elaborate meals, expect that person to be a little grumpy about the size of the room and available resources.

very nice and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

would rather of had the house to ourselves and the pool could have been a little larger for a family of 17, however everything inside was great. The bunk beds were a little short for some of the boys but we made due. Would much rather of stayed in the new house with the 9 bedrooms more room. You and your husband couldn't have been more acomidating to our needs, even though I was a pest with you on the phone.LOL

Thanks again

Lady Sunset was everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Just as described, the house was delightful...perfect for our family vacation. It easily accommodated 10 adults and 5 children. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots/pans and silver wear. We especially appreciated the added ice making machine to stock the coolers. The furnishings were very nice and we enjoyed the balconies off the 2 master bedrooms for quiet time and spotting the dolphins. The pool was larger than we expected--plenty of room for kids and floats. We loved the beautiful beach and we had no worries leaving our beach things unattended there all day. One of the highlights of the week was when our family rented kayaks for the day and had close up encounters with many dolphins. The location is ideal and family friendly yet conveniently only 2 miles from the center of town with restaurants, shops, etc. The owners were very quick to answer any questions via email or text and they even stopped by to ensure we were happy with the rental. When there was a parking and noise issue with next door, they handled it quickly. Additionally they offered us many tips on good restaurants and best times to go. We would not hesitate to recommend Lady Sunset. It’s just wonderful for an amazing vacation.
