Wonderful Beach HOME

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a beach house, that was private, had its own pool and could fit all of our family…THIS IS IT! We had a smaller party of 10, the rates were so reasonable that even though this property is huge, we could still afford to stay here even with a smaller party. Don't turn away just because you can't fill it up, you will not be disappointed!

The house is about 15-20 minutes from Gulf Shores but we found that we didn’t want to leave the house that much (because it had everything we needed!). There are two amazing restaurants nearby that we went to; Sassy Bass is literally a few doors down from this house and Fort Morgan Tacky Jacks is a couple miles. Sassy Bass is amazing and has live music most nights; also has a delicious affordable breakfast buffet. Tacky Jacks had a cool atmosphere, awesome food and a bar below the restaurant with karaoke. There is also a market near by (attached to Sassy Bass) that has everything you need!

Back to the house, the beach is literally your back yard, there is no “walk to the beach” you are right there. I loved being able to see our kids playing on the beach from our back deck. I could yell to them and we could communicate!

I had such a hard time finding a beach house with a pool. The pool is a great size, was very clean and we used it A LOT! It would have been a bummer to have to walk to a community pool. Having your own pool really is priceless. The deck also has plenty of furniture and a large dining table for meals outside with a beautiful ocean view!

Four of the eight bedrooms have ocean views, large windows and access to a deck. Usually you only see houses with one awesome master; this place has four masters with ocean views and two other nice masters. The other two bedrooms are set up with bunks, kid’s rooms! The kitchen had plenty of storage, is well stocked and even has an ice maker (what a nice touch) the common area is huge, open and great for hanging out. Also, the third floor has a game room and we loved that, the whole family participated in a shuffle board tournament, it was really fun!

Prickett Properties is a dream to work with. They were so accommodating, quick to respond, and made booking this property and staying at this property so easy and simple. In my opinion, this is hands down one of the nicest beach houses you will ever come across. Book it and thank me later! PS this was NOT a paid review I seriously just love this place and want other families to experience it!

Fantastic House for all the Family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Dune R Thing earlier this summer for our family vacation. We loved it there. The main floor has a huge open floor plan. The kitchen area has 2 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators, and a dedicated ice maker in the huge island, with seating at the counter for four, and another counter bar area for an additional seating for four. We actually used this area as a catch-all area for our stuff. :) The bedrooms are spacious, with all but one having an ensuite. Everything was new, nice and clean.

Some suggestions to make this house even better! A few more kitchen towels and wash clothes, pot holders, storage containers with lids for left overs, drying rack and/or hooks on the back of doors for beach towel drying, and hand towel hooks/bar. There are only 2 drawers for clothes storage in the 3rd floor bedroom, no place to put luggage.

Dune R Thing’s pool is awesome. We used it a lot. The little golf putting green with the lounge chairs around it is a nice breezy area to hang out when you’ve had a little too much sun. We enjoyed the BBQ grill a few times, as well. The beach is so private for Gulf Shores, as it is in the Fort Morgan area. The house sits way back off the road and has a long private drive so it’s nice that it’s not located in one of the crowded neighborhoods.

Overall, I would recommend this property and hope this information is helpful. :)

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Perfect for vacations with multiple families! We had 2 families and loved it. It's right on the beach and has a beautiful view of the water! The kids loved the game room, private pool, and putting green under the house! Inside the house was large and really nice and new. Wish we could've stayed longer!
