About Blake Corder
We have owned property and vacationed in Gulf Shores since 1986. We chose Gulf Shores over several other destinations due to its peaceful atmosphere and beautiful, relatively uncrowded beaches. We live a short drive away and still visit Gulf Shores often, so we remain in good contact with our properties to insure they are in proper condition.
Blake Corder purchased this House in 2015
Why Blake Corder chose Gulf Shores
The BEACH! Nothing beats beachfront and nothing beats the privacy this house has to offer. Why get up at 6:00 am just to stake your 'claim' on the beach along with 1,000 other vacationers when you can walk out your door and pick any spot...at any time?
What makes this House unique
Large deck for entertaining; open living areas for families; ample free parking; large storage room to use for your stay; decorated tastefully (no pink flamingos!) with travelers in mind

Very nice home at an excellent location.
Very nice house away from the most populated/tourist spots. Very comfortable for a family of five or six. I would suggest including some additional supplies so the renter doesn't have to shop for them (shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper, beach towels, beach items, etc.). It's impractical to pack many of these things on an airplane so you have to go shopping when you arrive. Overall a very nice experience.
Thank you for the review, Andrew. As the season progresses, many of those items are left in the house for use by guests. We will try to keep a better eye on some of the necessities to see if we can help provide a better experience for our guests.
Great location, space, beach and amenities
We stayed at this property during Thanksgiving week. The open family room and kitchen was comfortable, spacious, nicely decorated and well equipped. The overall interior was clean, well-maintained and up-to-date. Great location on an expansive white sand beach that is far away from public access that the beach in front is not overcrowded. The kitchen has all the appliances, pots and pans, utensils, etc. to make a full Thanksgiving dinner. Our family enjoyed this place and would rent it again. Owner was attentive and responsive to our questions and needs. The only issue pertains to the stairs and deck. I’d suggest retacking down a couple loose steps and some of the decking.
Thank you for your honest review, Jennifer. As part of our end-of-the-season maintenance, we typically do things like securing deck boards, checking remotes on TV's, changing lightbulbs, checking sheets, checking kitchen items, etc. We did secure several loose steps in December and the deck is good to go for another season. I hope you'll consider us again when you travel back to the AL Gulf Coast.
Luna Sea...Beautiful, Comfortable, Relaxing
What an amazing week at the Luna Sea! The house is beautifully decorated, extremely clean, and so comfortable and relaxing. Plenty of space for a family of four and a family of three to relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach which is just steps from the deck. The storage room and outdoor shower made evening beach cleanup simple. No worries about our beach chairs, boogie boards and beach toys since they were easily cleaned and stored overnight and ready for the next day at the beach. We all slept great on the comfortable beds and appreciated the cozy blankets and box fans we found in the closets and we enjoyed the selection of games provided for family fun.
The well-equipped kitchen made cooking and eating most of our meals at the house a breeze and the great location of the house made travel convenient to our favorite restaurants like The Shrimp Basket and Sea N Suds, souvenir shops, and Scoops Ice Cream Parlor in Gulf Shores. Being nestled between the bustle of Gulf Shores and the Pass was a great location for us...far enough from the crowded beaches and close enough to walk down to the Pass to watch the fishermen and the sunset in the evening.
Thanks to Blake for helping us navigate Hurricane Nate so that we knew when to arrive safely! All in all, we felt completely at home at the Luna Sea; thanks for a great vacation!
Thank you for that review! The comments regarding the location are great - I have several guests traveling to Gulf Shores for the first time, so that info is great to hear from a guest. I'm glad we were able to navigate Nate together and that your family was able to enjoy some time on the gulf coast.
Excellent location, great house, wonderful beach!
We loved the property! It was great for our family get-together (5 adults, 2 kids). The location is within a few minutes to Gulf Shores for restaurants, grocery stores, zoo and other activities. The beach is gorgeous white sand, and this time of year (early Oct) we had it almost to ourselves!
The house is pretty well stocked with kitchen pots, pans, etc. Plenty of nice bath towels, but could have used more kitchen towels. There was a lot of leftover sand toys that we made good use of! A couple of days the wind was strong, but we were able to relax on the house side of the dunes and let the kids play with the dunes as a wind block.
A couple of items we noticed that might need attention:
- Need some sharper kitchen knives, a smaller cutting board (only a very large one avail), a pair of kitchen sizzors, and a grill brush
- the kitchen bar stools need to be tightened up, they were very unstable to sit on
- the fitted sheet in the 1st king room on the left needs to be replaced, it came off the corners every night.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return to this property!
Thank you for the 5 star review Doni! I appreciate the honest feedback as well as it helps up keep our future guests comfortable.
Beach life at Luna Sea was a perfect vacation for this Iowa family!
My family and I had a wonderful vacation in Gulf Shores and your house was perfect for us. It was clean and nicely decorated and I especially loved the well-supplied kitchen. Luna Sea is a house that we will want to go back to. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We loved it!
Our only suggestion for improvement would be to have a pad of some kind installed between the outside hose and stairs so that sand would not be tracked upstairs. We placed a plastic pan with water in it on the bottom step to help with final rinsing.
Thank you for the review, Trudy! We are glad you enjoyed your stay so much! We do the same when we vacation at Luna Sea - place a plastic tub or a towel at the top of the stairs to cut down on the sand tracking back-and-forth. We'll look into more permanent solutions for the issue.
Stayed mid June. Beach is private and great. House is nice. Property Mgr was quick to help
Thanks for the review Ryan!
