The best part of this house is the fact that it is private, and you will only have to share these things with those who come with you.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Home was super roomy, and super accomodating. Did not use pool because it was too cold, but deck area is nice to lounge around. Balcony area was nice with a wonderful view of the bay. Pier made it convenient to keep my boat handy. Wonderful place to stay!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation we ever had. Coffee and fishing off the pier in the morning and going to the beach during the day. This property is secluded and quiet, yet close to everything. John, the owner was awesome. He was very helpful and answers any questions immediately. I highly recommend this place. Best time ever !

The house, although dated, was very spacious and had plenty of space for our large group.

  • 4 of 5

This property was in a very quiet, private area of Gulf Shores. The view of the bay was beautiful and we enjoyed fishing and crabbing on the dock. Everyday we were able to see dolphins swimming in the bay! We also enjoyed the pool. It was a nice size for our large group. The beach is just a few minute drive away and was not ever busy with a lot of people. While there were some things about the house that were dated, overall, we had a lovely time. Definitely a great space for the price! We had a lovely vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We love to hear our reviews, & take pride in trying to help our guests enjoy their vacation. It is an older house that we just started renting for the first time just last season. So updating is an ongoing battle/ fun opportunity, and a top priority. I'm so happy that the dolphins & porpoise came to see you. They're such show-off's, I'm glad that they didn't wear out their welcome! Thanks again, & the fact that you would use the word "dated" tells us that you & your family are the exact type of people that we love having at the house. So please come back anytime. Best, JD Whetstone & Family

The refundable "damage" deposit of $175.00 will be returned within 7 days of departure if the housekeepers and property manager determine that there are no unreasonable messes such as pet hair/fleas, beer cans, cigarette butts, or any other unusual/unreasonable garbage and/or messes that require an unusual/unreasonable amount of time for the housekeepers to clean the unit. This is ultimately a "Trashed Unit" fee for the housekeepers. Again, this is refundable as long as there are no unreasonable issues.
