About carol mitchell

My husband and I own this building and rent both sides. We do not have any other rental property so we can pay attention to the needs of this one. We take pride in our home and keep it updated and maintained.

Why carol mitchell chose Gulf Shores

This property is the perfect location. West Beach offers SO much more beach and yet only a mile from the nearest store and restaurant. It fits the need of large families/or reunions when you want to be together but still want your privacy!

What makes this house unique

There are so many benefits from renting this unit. Some of the best:

Location, Wide beach and family oriented. It is one of the few homes with the pool on the beach side.

Perfect for 3 couples and 6 kids! Pool is great!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained. Nicely furnished. Good beds. As with most private properties, it is raised = stairs to main level and to 2nd floor bedrooms (one BR on main level). Private heated pool used every day. Kids loved it as alternative to beach. Direct beach front - 200 ft to water. Just far enough west that beach not crowded. Empty lot beside gives even more beach frontage available. This is a fantastic property. Highly recommended.

We're going back again next year

  • 5 of 5

Great view from the balcony of the beach and the gulf. Just steps to the water. Private entrance and private pool. The grand kids loved the pool and the beach so close together.

Enough parking for 3 vehicles under cover. Propane and charcoal grills available. Location is great, the beach was not to crowded. Quick response time from the owners on maintenance or repairs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We loved sharing our home with you and your family. It is a great place for families with the pool and beach on the same side. I look forward to speaking to you again about 2018. Every year, we try to add something new. Do some upgrading, expand, or whatever is in need so guest will have something new to look forward too. Thanks again.

Great setup and location for a large group

  • 4 of 5

There were 21 family members staying in the 2 units ranging in age of 18 months to 65 years. We had a wonderful time despite the 10" of rain we got that week. The pool was a life saver as there were red flags on the beach several days. But we still were able to enjoy the beach every time the rain stopped. We had plenty of room to all gather to enjoy each other and plenty of separate rooms to get away also! Carol was so pleasant and easy to work with leading up to our stay and easily accessible while we were there. It was the perfect place for us and we would definitely return. We've stayed at places from Fort Morgan to Orange Beach in the past, and this location was great.

Family Beach Trip - Second Time

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so very much Carol for opening your beautiful home to be available for rental. This is our second time staying here and it was absolutely fabulous!!! Beautiful home with all of the amenities, heated pool, and right on what is just like your own private beach. We vacationed here before and are returning vacationers. Brought our kids and grandchildren and a great time was had by all. Home was clean and had everything we needed. Thank you so much Carol, hope we can come back again soon!!!
