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 big 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 assigned wet 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 Alabama

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.

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.

Boaters paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation and we could not have had a better time. Of course weather and fishing are not predictable but we had perfect weather and wonderful fishing. Home is as pictured and is clean, roomy, and well stocked. Boat launch and ramp are a street or two over and were easy access and convenient. The boat slip was great and we appreciated the rubber pier bumpers. The access to the gulf was not very far and there are numerous restaurants, bars, beach islands to visit. Parking was perfect for three cars and a trailer, pet friendly was a plus. Would highly recommend and hope to stay again one day.....Owner timely and very information.....thanks for sharing your home!

Vacation with Fur Babies

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was very convenient for our needs as a family traveling with our fur babies. It was great to be able to take them to the neighborhood common area and let them swim and play. They also were able to exercise in the large side yard or rest on the porch to get a little fresh air. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors were friendly. We felt very safe in this area. The convenience to the local restaurants, grocery and beach was a plus!! Another positive is the parking - there was more than enough room for our four vehicles. It was easy to make ourselves at home :)
