The ground floor features a 50" tv, outdoor shower, bathroom, gas grill, refrigerator, table and chairs, and parking for at least 6 vehicles. On the main floor, you will enjoy an open living/kitchen area with dining area, completely furnished kitchen, a 70" smart flat screen tv in the living area, a covered porch overlooking the pool and unbelievable views of the Gulf of Mexico; a master suite with King bed and bathroom with custom shower; another bedroom with King bed and bathroom, a laundry room which includes a second refrigerator; and a half bath. Upstairs on the top level, you will find a large master suite with King bed and sitting area and bathroom with large custom shower, including a balcony overlooking the Gulf; a bunk room with 4 twin bunk beds and bathroom with custom shower; a bedroom with 2 Queen beds and private bathroom; another bedroom with a King bed, which shares a large Jack-n-Jill bathroom with the entertainment den that has a sleeper sofa, TV and X-Box.

About Alabama Getaway

Our 4 families purchased this home brand new from the builder in March of 2015. We began our search in Jan for a home all our families could enjoy and the minute we entered the Cottages at Romar we knew this is where we wanted to be. After touring the home that was only a shell at that time we knew right then and began the process of buying it. We closed in late March and the next day we all headed down to enjoy a great week in our new home. The kids had the time of their life and we did as well. We hope you and your family will enjoy many vacations here just as we will.

Alabama Getaway purchased this house in 2015

Why Alabama Getaway chose Alabama

We knew right away this was the perfect lot and location. Being on the corner we basically have the pool in our backyard and you can sit on the deck and watch the kids swim or enjoy the wonderful gulf views. Being only steps away from the beach is another huge benefit of this lot. We have the morning sun on the deck and living room side of the house and evening shade which is very nice during those warm summer months. Being a corner lot we have enough grassed yard for yard games as well. All in all its the perfect lot in the newest upscale gated community in Orange Beach.

What makes this house unique

Professionally decorated furnishings, linens, etc. Fully stocked kitchen with place settings for up to 20. Two full size fridge/freezer located on main floor and a small fridge/freezer on ground floor to keep beach food and drinks cold. X-large capacity washer/dryer in laundry room.

Top Shelf is Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Top Shelf with the entire family, 17 of us, and the accommodations were perfect. The house was adequately stocked and even included some supplies I expected to have to purchase. Appliances were top of the line, if maybe a bit too high tech. We struggled with the clothes dryer but I'm sure it was user error and not the machine ;)

We all enjoyed the pool; it was perfect for little ones as well as grown ups.

Whenever I had a question, I received a prompt and satisfactory response.

We are already planning our next stay!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the property was very enjoyable. The property was neat and clean and well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. The youngsters enjoyed the use of the table tennis set and the gaming console. The adults enjoyed the fact that meals could be prepared on site. This contributed to many family meals together. It was definitely a plus that an elevator was made available as one of our party was handicapped, The location is ideal. The beach is well within walking distance. And It is only a short drive to Pensacola and the Naval Air Station and Museum. It is also not to far a drive to Mobile where the Battleship USS Alabama and the submarine USS Drum is located. And we visited both locations. Entertainment possibilities and good food are plentiful within a short distance. Last but not least, Jeff the owner/manager was very accommodating and very responsive to our needs. I highly recommend this experience to anyone. It is quite possible that we will return in the future.

Top Shelf is Top Notch!!

  • 5 of 5

We have made Orange Beach our vacation destination for more than 20 years. This home, Top Shelf, is by far our favorite! The Cottages at Romar is a wonderful little community with a pool in the center and quick access to the beautiful white sand beaches we love. Top Shelf is beautifully decorated with plenty of room for our group of 20. We were able to enjoy one another's company while still having plenty of room to spread out. The kids LOVED the bunk room! We enjoyed sipping our coffee and eating our meals on the covered decks. The pool is amazing! We enjoyed the zero entry areas and were always able to find a section of open chairs. We enjoyed being just steps away so we could go back and forth to the house quickly. Another bonus was getting to know several families who were also staying in the Cottages. We would encourage anyone to stay at Top Shelf.

Until next year Orange Beach!

I have never stayed in a better equipped rental in my life. This place worked perfectly for our family of 15, with everyone sleeping comfortably in their own bed, with room to spare! The kids had their space, and the adults had their space, it was the perfect distance from the pool and beach. The beaches were not crowded at all, we will definitely be back!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Top Shelf. The house is even more gorgeous in person. It was the perfect location with a corner lot convenient to the pool and beach. The kitchen had everything we needed (could use a few more towel and rags for kitchen use). We absolutely loved our stay and hope to be able to book again next year!
