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 was completely repainted on the inside & newly furnished in 2015! 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 & queen in the guest room. Both bedrooms have flat-screen tv's.The master bath is attached to master bedroom with spa tub/shower combo. The 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 two brand-new (2018) comfy swivel rockers with colorful cushions on the front deck along with a porch swing and a bar height table with two swivel bar chairs to enjoy the beautiful bay view!

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 (dine outside & take your fur-baby with you!) 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: 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 - April 1) 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.

** From guest on 11/30/2017: Bear Point Bungalow was everything as advertised and more. It was very comfortable and convenient. We give it 5 stars and hope to stay again. We will bring our dog next time, as it is very pet friendly.

About Jamie Christian

We live in north Alabama and love the gulf coast! We visited the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area at least twice a year for many years 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!

Jamie Christian purchased this house in 2014

Why Jamie Christian chose Orange Beach

We have dreamed of owning a place at the beach for years! Shortly after our 17th 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, Master Joe's, Barefoot Island Grill & Cosmos to name a few), grocery stores (Publix or Wal-Mart Market is about 4 miles away) & cute shops, with the Tanger Outlet Mall only about 20 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

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!

Great house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Point Bungalow!! The house itself is very nicely decorated, cozy, and located in a quiet neighborhood. Sitting on the deck in the evening was extremely relaxing. We brought our 2 dogs and they loved it also! 5 minute walk for great food at Flippers and just a 10-15 minute drive to the beaches. Jamie is very accommodating and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again!!

Soooo relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came for our honeymoon/ 1 year anniversary. We originally chose this property because it was dog friendly. The owners are a joy to work with. We had no issues and if we did we were reassured they would be fixed. The owner goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need to make your stay even more comfortable.

This home was everything I could have hoped for and more!! It located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood, great for going on walks. The home is beautifully decorated and so relaxing. The home is VERY clean. The beds are amazing! I will definitely be coming back!

Great cozy and peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

The charming place was a great stay for my family while down on vacation. An excellent, quiet location but still close enough to drive to all the main attractions. Great owners who value your stay and offer excellent service to you! Highly recommended!

Fabulous place to relax! We loved being able to take our dog to the bay. Our 5 yr old grandaughter called it the "little beach" and preferred being there as opposed to the "big beach". So, we spent most of our time there. The house was beautiful, beds were comfy and Jamie was very attentive to our needs. Sitting on the upper deck and listening to the many species of birds as they called to each other was just so amazing! I loved that we were in a private location but could get to everything in just minutes.

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot! Everything we needed was within a few miles. Plenty of places nearby to take our pup which was the most important part for us! Jamie was more than accommodating and just a sweetheart in general. Thanks guys for allowing us to use your home and bring our sweet Blue! We definitely plan on coming back!
