Welcome to 'Hibiscus Island' - our newest addition to the Hibiscus Cove family at Sea Oats! Whether you like to boat, fish, relax on the beach, or lounge by the pool - Sea Oats is the place where you can have that old-fashioned family vacation you've always dreamed of!

What is the Hibiscus Cove experience? We want you to have a care-free vacation. We are constantly being asked, 'What should we pack?' And we always tell our guests to close their eyes and pretend they are taking a plane to Hawaii and pack accordingly. We genuinely supply everything else you will need. We provide a nice starter set of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher tabs, garbage bags, etc., so you may need to restock a few of those items while you are here. Basically, pack your clothes, pick up some groceries on your way in and RELAX!

*** THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE *** MILITARY *** CIVIL SERVICE *** MEDICAL *** TEACHERS ***

Hibiscus Cove Rentals proudly offers a $100 discount on any stay of 5 days or longer for our guests who are actively serving or have served in the Military, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, Search & Rescue, etc. We are EXPANDING our service discount to include those working in the Medical profession (Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, etc) and Teachers!!! We appreciate what you do for us and for our country and our communities! Just let us know how you served (or are currently serving) at the time of booking. We offer a $50 discount for stays less than 5 days. (We cannot combine discounts, but will cheerfully offer you the best deal if more than one discount applies!)

**********************************

Location:

Sea Oats is located only 3 miles west of Highway 59 and West Beach Blvd (the Hangout). Our beaches are quiet and family friendly, in the most laid back area of Gulf Shores. Yet we are only moments away from the all the excitement Gulf Shores has to offer - including shopping, music, nightlife, amusement parks, restaurants and golf.

Property Features:

Sea Oats has everything your family needs for a relaxing beach vacation. Our complex is located on Little Lagoon and directly across from the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores. We provide your family with a beach wagon, chairs, umbrellas, even a cooler! The beach is just steps away using our dedicated boardwalk, complete with showers for rinsing off. Be sure to take advantage of our TWO Olympic sized swimming pools with plenty of deck chairs for a relaxing evening.

Sea Oats also offers a private boat launch and slips for guests, 2 fishing piers with fish cleaning stations, 2 gazebos, and a picnic area with grills. Bring your boat or watertoys!

We also offer assigned, covered parking and security for each rental unit.

Unit Features:

This is a HUGE, beautifully updated 3 bedroom/2 bath condo with over 1400 square feet. Our spacious balcony has a great view of the pool - perfect for keeping an eye on the kids! The living room/dining area has direct access to the balcony - a great place to relax in the evening shade.

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, large closet, dressing area with vanity, and private master bath. A second bedroom contains a Queen Size bed, while the third bedroom has a Queen Size bed PLUS a set of twin bunk beds! Every bedroom has a flat screen TV and DVD player. Basic cable is provided (70 channels including local news channels). Directly between the guest rooms, you will find the second full bath.

In the living room, the family can unwind by watching a DVD or cable on the flat panel HDTV. There's plenty of comfortable seating and games to keep the kids busy. Enjoy the comfy Queen sized sofa sleeper and large couch - perfect if the kids want to watch TV and eat popcorn without disturbing the grownups!

KITCHEN:

We offer a large, fully equipped kitchen designed to meet your needs. There’s a full size refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, stove and dishwasher. You'll also find a great assortment of small appliances and utensils to make cooking a breeze. Entertain friends or kick back with a cocktail and watch the sunset - you won't find an more relaxing vacation!

No need to lug beach towels and chairs! We provide everything a family of 6-10 would need for a day at the beach: beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, even a cooler!

We also provide a full-size washer and dryer in the unit for your use.

Area Attractions:

The area has amusement parks, water parks, go-karts, a family zoo, miniature golf, museums, historical sites and some of the best restaurants along the Gulf coast.

Don't miss the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola - just 30 minutes away and admission is Free!

Looking for adventure? Take a dolphin cruise, go deep sea-fishing or parasailing. Take your family to historic Fort Morgan and ride the ferry to Dauphin Island for a fun day out.

Fore! Did know there are ten signature golf courses in the local area? Calling all Shoppers - Famous Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is only a short drive and offers great selection at discount prices. Be sure to check out the Wharf, just minutes away in Orange Beach - they have live music, events, boutique shops, restaurants - not to mention the highest Ferris wheel in the South. You can also bike to town on the designated biking/walking paths in town.

Of course, you can always create your own downtime - just sink your toes in the beautiful, sugar white sand, listen to the waves and remember why you came to our little corner of paradise.

About Roy and Susan Forson

After living all over the country, we have finally made lower Alabama our home! We have lived in Maryland, Michigan, Wyoming, and Tennessee. We are avid golfers and love scuba so Gulf Shores is a great fit for us. We live nearby in a local community and are dedicated to helping you and your family have a great vacation!

Roy and Susan Forson purchased this condo in 2015

Why Roy and Susan Forson chose Gulf Shores

We spoke to many visitors to Gulf Shores and we kept hearing over and over that Sea Oats is the 'best kept secret in Gulf Shores' for family vacations! All the families we spoke to keep coming back and we certainly see why. The units are well-maintained and they have two amazing pools. The lagoon is perfect for fishing and the beach is just steps away - the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

As a mom, my favorite feature is the balcony which has a great view of the pool. I can keep an eye on the kids and enjoy a moment relaxing in the evening shade. We love that our condo is on the first floor (only one flight of steps for lugging groceries). We also have a downstairs storage unit so all the beach toys can stay out of the way until you need them - really keeps the sand away! Finally, we love how well stocked everything is. We enjoy using our condo, too, and it is great to be able to pack our clothes, shop for some groceries, and relax! We don't have to buy or bring a lot of extra items - and that is exactly the experience we want to provide to you! Going on vacation is not supposed to be a lot of work!

We had an amazing time for the 2nd year in a row. The beach was beautiful, and the condo had everything we needed. The owners were available if needed. We was a great way to recharge our batteries!

Christmas in July Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults, 2 teens, a toddler, and a corgi. We stayed in the 3 bd 2 b condo. Everything was fantastic! The owners were only a text/ call away. They ensured our trip was smooth sailing. Our balcony over looked the pool area. There was plenty of green space.We had the beach on one side of the complex and lagoon on the other. Perfect location close to entertainment and eating. We were very pleased!
