About Gordon Wescoat

I love family, friends, my furry kids and the beach. The best way to combine my loves and share them with people who have many of the same interests was to get a beach house and open it up!

Gordon Wescoat purchased this house in 2015

Why Gordon Wescoat chose Alabama

Location and flexibility. The beach house and its private pier are on the lagoon, which is awesome for fishing, boating, crabbing, relaxing with friends and family, enjoying sunsets. The list goes on. The pool is great for lazy days and the white sandy beach is why we chose Gulf Shores! The home is set back from the road, making it both quiet and private. Load up on groceries and never leave the home!

It is also close to town and its variety of restaurants, shopping, socializing, parks and people watching. A little something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

The water views from the living room truly bring the beauty of the lagoon indoors. We never forget that we are relaxing at the beach.

Happy says it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at "My Happy Place" and the name truly captures our experience there. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with this lovely home. It's location is perfect - it's a lagoon property with a private pool and just steps away from the beach. The views are absolutely amazing - wish we could wake up every morning to such a view. The location was perfect - it's within walking distance to great shopping, restaurants and attractions but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle making it peaceful and serene. The home was spectacular! It has all the comforts of home, very clean, well stocked with everything you need and the decor is awesome! You can definitely tell the owners really care about their guests. We will definitely go back and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great getaway!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect for a beach vacation. It is evident that the owners have put much thought and effort into updating and decorating the home. The furnishings are modern and ensure that you feel welcome and ready to relax on your beach vacation. The view of the lagoon from the picture windows is beautiful and serene. The beach right across the street gives the best of both worlds. Our kids loved checking the crab traps in the morning from the dock and kayaking, then heading out for some beach time. Gordon and the local manager, Angel, are exceptional and made our experience so enjoyable. We hope to be back!

I love My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at My Happy Place. It is such a comfortable, cozy home! I loved all the improvements. The new counter tops and kitchen island made cooking a joy. The kitchen

is well stocked with everything you

could possibly need. We were able to bake a cake and celebrate my daughter's birthday as we would have at home. My grandchildren and I snuggled on the comfortable sofas and watched Christmas movies on the big screen tv. The children enjoyed a warm winter day in the pool.

The new heating and AC made the temperature very comfortable in the home. As is typical in our coastal winters, we used both over the

weekend! Each time I visit My Happy Place, I feel like I've come home.
