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 up to 10. 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, 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 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.

Perfect home and location when bringing your boat!

  • 5 of 5

The home is so clean and equipped with everything you need. The boat ramp and slip is in a great location. Close to all of the fun boating spots. The owner is very easy to work with. Texted to let us know the house was ready earlier than the regular check in time! We will definitely be back.

Perfect Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for Spring Break and it was just perfect. Location was great, convenient to everything in Orange Beach , which was helpful on rainy days and for going out. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything that we needed for meals in. Having the boat slip right there was wonderful, so that we could leave our boat in the water and not have to load and unload each time. We just hopped on and went! It is pet friendly, and we LOVED being able to have our dog with us on vacation. But the house was clean and you could not see any evidence of previous dogs in the house. There was a large area for them to roam in the side yard. Plenty of porch space to enjoy the morning and evening air to bookend a beach day. We had a lovely, relaxing vacation and would definitely stay here again!!

Yellowfin happiness

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months at Yellowfin and would do it again in a heartbeat! The property is charming and immaculate. We are sticklers for cleanliness and this property came in at the top. It is very well outfitted for cooking and entertaining. Comfy beds and high quality linens. Whilst we were there, we encountered a couple issues. A call to the owner, Matt, and he was immediately on it. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet it is two blocks to a great fitness area, including tennis and year round outdoor pool. It is also a block to the intercoastal canal. Loved sitting on the porch and listening to the birds. Hope to come back soon!!!
