About the Property

2 bed/2 bath offers serene getaway when not hanging out on the beach!

Bear Point Bungalow is an adorably decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,000 square foot home located in the Bear Point neighborhood of Orange Beach! This home is new to the rental market, as the previous owners lived here full-time. It has been completely repainted on the inside and has all new furnishings! Several FUN & UNIQUE pieces, including clear dining chairs, distressed furniture, an old spool turned coffee table, a "stained glass" medicine cabinet & LOTS of color capture the "vibe" we were going for in this beach home! Everything is cozy and comfortable!

There's a King bed in the master with a flat screen TV. Queen bed with flat screen TV in guest room. Quality linens and bedding in each bedroom. Master bath is attached to master bedroom with spa tub/shower combo. Guest bath in hall has shower only.

Fun seating area downstairs under house with adirondack chairs, cute stenciled table & charcoal grill! Also, there's an outdoor shower downstairs so you can spray off the sand & sweat after a day at the beach before coming inside. There are comfy new rockers with cushions on the front deck, along with a bar height table and two swivel bar chairs to enjoy the beautiful bay views!

If your four-legged friend is up-to-date on vaccines, on a flea preventative and is house-trained, then we would love to have him or her as an additional guest! We know how much you hate being separated from them at vacation time! We have a fenced-in backyard for your convenience and their safety. There's also a 3' fence across the carport. If your pet is small enough, you can rest easy that they will not be able to get past a certain point in the yard. Larger dogs may be able to go over the shorter fence. There is also a dog park just a mile or so down Canal Road. If you have a social animal, they may enjoy this setting. There is one area for small dogs and one for large.

We're only a couple of blocks from Bear Point Marina where you can book a dolphin cruise or charter a sail boat, eat at Flippers Restaurant and enjoy the Tiki Bar & live music. There's room in the driveway for your boat and you can use one of the public boat launches nearby. Here's a link to their locations: http://www.obparksandrec.com/parkstrails/publicboatlaunches.html. You can also enjoy swimming at a couple of different spots right in the neighborhood.

The Orange Beach Public Library and Community Center are just a couple of miles down Canal Road, along with the Waterfront Park, which has a great picnic area and a huge play area for the kids. The Orange Beach Sports Complex is another couple of miles further down.

Nightly rate includes tax. Cleaning fee extra. Deposit of $250 required. Deposit refundable upon departure once housekeeping verifies condition of home and contents. Pets considered on an individual basis. Pet fee of $15 per pet per day (that's less than the cost of boarding in our area). Additional refundable pet deposit of $100 required. Snowbirds will pay a $100 monthly pet fee per dog rather than the daily pet rate.

If you are looking for a busy, crowded condo complex, we can't help you here. If you're looking for a serene, mellow vacation, come check us out! We think you'll be glad you did!

* SNOWBIRDS - We will rent to you for the full three months (January 1 - March 31) or we will divide into two renters, one for January & February and the other for March OR one for January and the other for February & March. We will not rent February alone, without January or March. Thanks for your understanding.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We live in north Alabama and love the gulf coast! We visited the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area at least twice a year in the first 18 years of our marriage and rented a ton of condos & homes through VRBO. We fell in love with the area from our first visit. Between work and other obligations, we just can't make it down as much as we'd like, but thought we'd share our home with fellow beach lovers. We sincerely hope you love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
We have dreamed of owning a place at the beach for years! Shortly after our 18th wedding anniversary (in 2014), we finally took the plunge and we are still pinching ourselves! The house is in a quiet, charming neighborhood, offering a great place to ride bikes or take walks with your four-legged friends. Neighbors are friendly, but not intrusive. We're just a short drive to the beach, several restaurants (Doc's Oyster Bar, Cayman Grill, Shipp's Harbor Grill, Master Joe's & Cosmos to name a few), grocery stores (Publix is about 4 miles away) & cute shops, with the Tanger Outlet Mall only about 20 minutes away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our goal for many years was to own a beach-front condo. When we saw this home, we could actually see ourselves retiring here in a few years. A crowded condo complex, not so much. We understand that many will not be able to let go of the beach-front vacation and that's ok, but if you want a nice, quiet neighborhood with a peaceful bay view and just a mellow vacation, then I think we can help you out!
