VIRTUAL TOUR

Change of Pace **Gulf Front** Sleeps 18 **West Beach**

If you are looking for the perfect coastal escape on the beach and you want to experience the most incredible views on the coast then “Change of Pace is your home away from home”.

Located directly on the BEACH! This beautiful getaway has a picturesque style that is sophisticated, elegant and embraces the charm of the traditional beach house.

Change of Pace is a 3400 square feet 6 bedroom/5 bath home featuring a 2nd remote master suite with sitting area located upstairs for privacy. This is the perfect location for a family reunion, large get-togethers, or wedding. Nothing says beach house more then the huge open lower deck overlooking the Gulf for your family and guest’s outdoor activities. There is also a screen porch to sit and watch the waves crashing on the beach. If you need an afternoon siesta there is a hammock on the porch for relaxing or capturing a few surreal moments while gazing at the Emerald Coast.

Once inside you will experience true to the beach décor details. Bright vivid colors, furnishings and accessories create the complete natural beach vibe all through the house. The open floor plan between the living room, sitting room and kitchen will be a focus point for food, friends and family at any time day or night.

The kitchen and dining area seats 18-20 for a large get together. A crisp white kitchen with hues of blue & yellow accents makes it both welcoming and a warm atmosphere for your quality family time. Fully equipped, large cook stream kitchen has everything including an under the counter icemaker for lemonade or margaritas. There are 2 sinks and lots of work area with a large island that seats 8 people. The large living room has a bonus room with 2 sofas and a large 55” high-def television. There is an additional card table for fun and games.

After a day of fun in the sun you can retire to one of the 6 sea-color pastel bedrooms. Accommodations to sleep 18 include 3 king size beds, 2 queen size beds, 6 twin or single beds, 1 sleep sofa or futon. Each bedroom has a high def television with a 47” television in the Master bedroom. Two bedrooms have private balconies for that last late night thrilling view before slipping off into dreamland.

There are 5 bathrooms in the house with a jetted tub in the master bathroom.

A few extras we would like to share with you about Change of Pace is the large covered area under the house for up to 6 cars. In addition, there is parking for an RV or boat and trailer. There is a picnic table for outside dining and a swing for a retreat and a good book if the mood hits you.

From the moment you arrive at Change of Pace you will create memories of a lifetime to share and enjoy with your family and friends.

With soft white sand and emerald water, Gulf Shores is Alabama’s original beach town. Its lazy days by the water and pleasure-filled nights on the town have been attracting visitors for decades. This charming coastal town, with its something for everyone mentality, has become a favorite spot for families gathering each year. From a relaxing round of golf, to the sounds of laughter at amusement parks, to tantalizing tastes at restaurants you will be in paradise from the time you arrive until you leave.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello from the Benefiel family! We drove here from Illinois to enjoy a family vacation. The children played with the tractors and trucks on the deck, while some laid in the hammock. Everyone else sat on the deck and the beach. Family from Atlanta invaded us, we thoroughly are thankful for the time together. We have made precious memories that we will cherish forever in our hearts. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented Change of Pace and the house next door, Here to Dream, for a family wedding. Change of Pace has a large kitchen which was perfect for preparing the food, large living room for gathering, large bedrooms for guests and large space under the house for the rehearsal dinner and reception. The house had everything we needed and was very clean! The weather was perfect for a sunset wedding. Demetri accommodated our wedding needs. It was the perfect location for families from 6 states to escape hurricane Irma and celebrate a new marriage. I could not imagine a better facility than Change of Pace for this occasion. Our family is already dreaming up another reason to come back to "our beach house." Thanks for all you did Demitri. See you again soon!!

Great experience. Beaches are not crazy like the high rise beaches. Beach was natural . Took time getting used to the drift wood on shore. Distance wasn't too far but if you frequent GS 2-3 times day you are staying too far out.

The house is very spacious, with a well-appointed kitchen. Metri made sure we had everything we needed. We like the fact that the house is pretty secluded and the beach is not crowd.

This is a great beach house for a large family! We had a good week in spite of the rain, some every day but not all day anytime. The house does need some updating but the space is great and the big porch the best!

This is a great rental. There is tons of space and it is nicely decorated. It is cheerily furnished with beach decor. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The beach and views are fantastic. The manager, Demetri, is quick to respond to any concerns. I highly recommend "Change Of Pace".

Reviewer Comments:

Third time renting this property. Literally steps from the beach. We enjoyed great temps in Oct-Nov and spent most days walking the beach or sunning on the deck. The screened in porch is a Fantastic location for sunrise and sunset watching. The house is roomy enough for large families and arranged in a way that privacy is not an issue. In my opinion West Beach has the absolute best beaches in the world. property manager Metri is ALWAYS attentive and professional. Our coffee maker stopped working during the first week, Metri brought a new one the next day. Great location, great house, great property manager- the complete package!
