About Martinique on the Gulf

We live in New Orleans and recently bought this beach house as a weekend getaway, so we furnished and decorated the home to be as comfortable and enjoyable as our regular home. Our family loves to relax and unwind in this beautiful 3 bedroom home. We watch blue herons from our screened in porch and walk on the 3 mile undeveloped white sandy beaches.

Martinique on the Gulf purchased this house in 2014

Why Martinique on the Gulf chose Gulf Shores

We looked at many resorts and fell in love with Martinique. This is a relaxing, family oriented resort. It has all the amenities of larger resorts but is much less crowded. It also has a unique location next to the 4,200 acre Bon Secour National wildlife refuge with 3 miles of beautiful, undeveloped beach, so we get exclusive use of the Martinique beach plus 3 miles of undeveloped beach associated with the wildlife refuge. So the beaches are never crowded.

Spring break get away

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be the first to rent this property from the new owners and we are so glad we did. This was our first time visiting the Gulf Shores area and we were pleasantly surprised at how pretty the Martinique area is. This house was truly such a nice property and was not lacking anything. The beds are comfortable and the home has a very casual/vacation feel to it. It is located in the center of Martinique and on a cul-de-sac so the kids were able to play outside without being around cars. The master bedroom is separated from the other two and gives everyone a sense of privacy. The house is well-decorated and the kitchen is fully-equipped with anything you'd need. The bathrooms were updated and very clean. We enjoyed using the bikes and loved having a golf cart. We were in communication with the owner prior to arriving and they were so nice. We were traveling with other families so got to see a # of homes in the Martinique area. Julia's By The Sea is definitely up there in terms of amenities. We have 4 kids - ages 9 through 12 and they all loved the home. We enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner in the screened in porch - so peaceful! We would most definitely want to stay in this home again when we return to Gulf Shores.
