Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

Family retreat. Beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bath home with beautiful views of the Gulf

UPDATE October 2016 - WineDown now has new living room furniture that includes a pullout couch to offer more sleeping comfort for families of all sizes.

Welcome to WineDown, our home away from home in Gulf Shores. Our home is a 4 bedroom 3 bath retreat just steps away from the beautiful sugar white sand and clear, calm water of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in the West Beach area, we are in a quiet part of town but just a short 4-5 minute drive from the Hangout and all Gulf Shores has to offer.

Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf from our spacious deck. The beach is located just 150 yards from our front door. The views continue inside the home where you can see the water from the living room, dining room and even while mixing drinks in the kitchen!

Our living room is the perfect place for the family to relax and enjoy the view. A 50 inch tv makes this a perfect room to watch a movie or catch the game. The dining table is the perfect spot to enjoy a family meal or play a game or do a puzzle.

A spacious master suite includes a king bed, 40 inch tv, large master bath with his and her vanities, separate shower and tub and walk in closet. Two other bedrooms provide comfortable queen size beds with the 4th bedroom set up with bunk beds, full on the bottom and twin on the top, and a pullout couch in the living room that is great for kids. There are 2 other full baths so there is plenty of room for the entire family.

The home features crown molding throughout and the modern kitchen includes granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked with all new cookware and accessories.

We have televisions in every bedroom and dvd players in the living room and children's room. The kids' room also features rails to put on the bed and a pack n play for smaller children. Our home is designed to be very family friendly.

We feature a large clean area below the house with an outdoor shower and grill along with plenty of seating. This is another great area to relax with the family and enjoy a game or a drink. We have covered parking for 4 cars and can fit another 4 in the driveway. The home has 2 units and we are the lower unit. Parking is on the right side of the home when facing the driveway.

About Paul Ulshafer

WineDown is owned by the Wargo and Ulshafer families of Suwanee, GA. The Wargo family is made up of Stephanie and 5 year old daughter Piper. The Ulshafers are Paul and Sue and daughters Shelby and Laura. Our families are close friends and neighbors. Sue watches Piper during the week and has since she was very little. We purchased WineDown for our families to escape the hectic work lives we lead in Atlanta and are excited to share it with you.

Paul Ulshafer purchased this house in 2014

Why Paul Ulshafer chose Alabama

WineDown won us over with the beautiful view of the Gulf and the quick walk to a beautiful beach. The beach here is very wide with soft sand and is the perfect place to relax.

Perfect house - perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever full family vacation (there were 9 of us). Our house was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. It was stocked with a lot of items so we were able to cook some of our meals at the house. The beach was a couple minutes from the house and Steve (aka Santa) gave us the inside scoop on some really good restaurants and places that might interest us to visit. If you want a house close to the beach and a short distance from a lot of attractions, this is the perfect house. We ate at The Diner and Mikee's Seafood and they both had amazing food! Bahama Bob's was recommended to us, but we tried three times and each time there was at least an hour and a half wait. If you want to eat there, I would suggest you go early. If we make it back to Gulf Shores, we would certainly try to rent this again.

Everything we could have hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

This comfy, cozy, well-appointed home was the perfect place for our family vacation. It was immaculate when we arrived and everyone immediately felt at home. Having a port-a-crib and high chair available was wonderful for our granddaughter (it was great to not have to haul those from home). The beds were so comfortable and everyone slept so well. The kitchen had everything my chef-son could have asked for to create memorable meals for the family.

Aaron was great to deal with and Steve (Santa) was so friendly and kind. Lots of tips on the best places to eat, etc. There was so much to do from days and evenings at the beach, to jet skis, to putt-putt....we needed a few more days to get it all in! We will definitely be back! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for our family of nine to relax and enjoy each other, and Gulf Shores!

Car: recommended

Located on a quiet stretch of Gulf Shores but just a short drive from local favorites like The Hangout (4 minutes), Bill's on the Beach, LuLu's, Bahama Bob's and many others. The new Beach House Restaurant is just a 1 minute drive away and features great hand made burgers. Short 4-5 minute drive to the center of town and all of the great festivals Gulf Shores is known for.

The Gulf is directly across the street from us and you can enjoy a short walk to the fishing inlet.
