Avoid the crowds, the congestion, fighting for parking, and riding the elevator at all those overcrowded and overpriced condos. Stay in YellowFin, our Magnolia and Live Oak-shaded beach house.

Located in the heart of Orange Beach, YellowFin has all the charm and peaceful serenity of the beach in a new and luxurious home that comfortably sleeps 8. In this open floor plan, you'll have a full kitchen with an oversized fridge and all the appliances you'd want, a dining room, great room with a flat screen HDTV, and three decks to grill out, entertain, or simply enjoy this tropical setting. Make it your own Margaritaville!

The master suite, located on the main level, has another flat screen HDTV, and is attached to a laundry room with washer & dryer and a luxurious bathroom with a shower, garden tub, and twin vanity. The master suite opens up to its own, private deck.

The second bedroom with a queen bed, has cable TV, and is located on the second floor looking out over its own sundeck. A second full bathroom is located between the second and third bedrooms. The third bedroom also has cable TV and has two sets of twin bunkbeds (4 beds).

Within two residential blocks of our house, you'll have access to 3 clean and quiet bayfront parks and beaches. Bring your boat with you! You can use our private, gated boat launch and marina (with use of our boat slip available upon request at no additional charge) that empties into Bay La Launch (the ICW), just steps from our house. Just two blocks in the other direction, you'll have use of an olympic & children's pool (heated in winter) with diving board and water slide, a total fitness center, lighted tennis courts, gym with basketball courts, game room with billiards, ping pong & air hockey, and a playground, all for a nominal fee of $5 per day paid to the facility if/when used. If the pool is all you want, a seasonal discount pass is available, providing 15 visits to the pool for $30.

About Matt Stiles

I am a lawyer in Birmingham, Alabama, with a family of 5. This property is our family vacation home in Orange Beach and we keep it clean and comfortable for a turn-key vacation.

Matt Stiles purchased this house in 2004

Why Matt Stiles chose Orange Beach

Just a short distance to the beautiful white sand beaches, close to fine dining, great shopping, The Wharf, Orange Beach Sportsplex, incredible sportfishing, and all kinds of beach activities.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being so close to the water and the beaches, but a little farther away from the overcrowded condo scene.

We enjoyed our stay at Yellowfin. It was our favorite VRBO property in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area thus far. We can't wait to return!

Comfy house

  • 4 of 5

Yellow Fin was a pleasant refuge from the chaos of Christmas, even though the weather was cold and blustery. Layout worked well for our group, which included two generations. We older folk took the upstairs bedrooms and bath; we let the nearly newlyweds have the master suite on the main floor. The house is cozy without feeling cramped. The decor is beachy and well done. The owner responded helpfully when we called a couple of times with questions. WiFi and water pressure were both great. The only drawback was that this house was not as well stocked as were the two other VRBO properties that we have rented. We had to buy toilet paper and I was glad that we brought tissues and paper towels with us. The only staples in the kitchen were salt and pepper. Also, the water and boat dock are not adjacent to the property as it appeared to me from the online listing (they are very close by). Since the weather was cold, this wasn't a big deal to us; but it might matter to renters when it's warm.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We wish you had read our listing and rental information packet which clearly and repeatedly identifies that the our boat slip is in a boat basin one block north of the house. Our rental information packet also makes clear that guests should bring their own groceries (to include cooking ingredients), toiletries, and paper goods, for which individual preferences may vary. A limited quantity of paper is always on hand for your day of arrival.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and clean, towels were provided as well as linens for the beds. We didn't have to do anything but put food in the fridge. We did have to buy more toilet paper to use, but that was okay!!! Neighborhood was quiet and has very nice neighbors!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Yes, we will only stock a roll or two of paper towels and toilet paper. Everyone has their own preferences and we frequently have long-term guests.

Adequate and clean.

  • 3 of 5

The home was nice and the location was good if you don't mind driving a few minutes to get to the beach. It would be perfect for a boat kind of fishing deal. The two down sides were the lack of outdoor furniture and then the community center's hours. It closes at 6 pm, so we didn't use it but once. We were on the beach in the daytime.

Owner's Response: There are two outdoor chairs on each deck (front, back and upstairs) and a charcoal grill on the front deck. As with most homes on the Gulf coast, outdoor objects tend to be limited to avoid them turning into flying projectiles in the event of severe weather. We have no control over the Acquatics Center's hours, which are posted by the Acquatics Center.
