Why Laura Fisher chose Gulf Shores

We built this home to accommodate our large family. It's layout is perfect for everyone! All bedrooms have their own tv, and bathroom. Each floor has it's own kitchen, living, dining and laundry room. There are plenty of decks to enjoy the incredible views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the bay. The pools are a short walk away, and the beach is only 25 steps away. This home has it all. With free Wifi, everyone can stay connected. The area is away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores. There are no high rise condominiums around our home, so the beach is only for the homes in the area. It really gives you a slice of paradise for your family to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a prime spot in our community only steps away from the beach and pools. There are two community pools as well as a tennis court. The dolphins often swim by in the morning and afternoon, and our expansive decks give you the perfect view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family gathered at your wonderful home last week for our beach vacation. It could not have been more perfect! This spacious house with 2 kitchens allowed for food prep with babies and young children as well as our big meals. We loved having the pools and beach was short walk. Also, the bedrooms were comfortable. Porches were a big hit with all ages. Our family was from 5 states and could not have found a better place to rent.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was a very beautiful home and it is in a perfect location. The owner was a very nice person and took care of any issues we had during our stay. I would recommend this home to any big family and would also come back again to this very home. It is also in a very nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Can't wait to do it again next year.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

In August of 2013 we stayed at the Beach Castle in Fort Morgan. Both of my sisters and their families as well as my family and an aunt and uncle stayed there for one week. There were 21 of us and it was spectacular. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We had a perfect view of the ocean and it was such a short walk to get to the ocean. The two pools were absolutley perfect. I would recomend this house tp anyone who has a large group that wants to be close but yet have enough space to not feel crowded. WONDERFUL VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our house and the area. It's always great to hear when families enjoy our home as much as we do. Our home was built to accommodate my large family. There are six children plus all of our families. We go down for a week every summer, and have many wonderful memories with all of us together. I hope you are all able to enjoy our home again too.

We truly enjoyed out week at the Beach Castle. The house had all the comforts from home. The location is wonderful you are literally a few feet away from the beach. The layout is convenient for renters to have common areas and space enough to get away from each other also. We used the tennis courts everyday also. The pools were a little disappointing as they were not heated and the water was extremely cold.

Loved the outdoor showers to rinse off the sand before entering the house and ample parking under the house. Would reccommend this house to anyone having a large family gathering........

Beautiful Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 9 bedroom home - very spacious and accomodated our large party very well. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone planning a family reunion - the pool area with tennis/basketball was right across the street. The view of the beach from each balcony was breathtaking ... and since the home is in a residential area the beach was not very crowded. The house was clean and very well cared for. Our group had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The wireless internet was not working when we arrived - we called the rental agency and they had someone stop by first thing monday to fix it. We were quite impressed with the turnaround.

Beach Castle

House was fantastic. Very well equipped and roomy for

our large family. Pool is nice and in close proximity to

the house.

Only drawback was we could not swim in the ocean and after our second day there could not use the beach because of the oil spill.

The Alabama Gulf Coast is right across the street

Our area is perfect for families. The beaches are steps away, as well as the community pools and tennis courts. Our beaches are some of the most secluded, far away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores. The Fort is only 3 miles away, and is great for the history lover. It's also where the Gulf meets the Bay, and is a great sight seeing area. The Mobile ferry right next to the fort, will take you to Dauphin Island which has a great Estuarium. Children always enjoy riding on the ferry, and the Estuarium is always a favorite. The pier nearby at the Gulf Shores Marina is also great for fishing and crabbing. If you don't have any luck, then you can just walk over to Tacky Jacks for lunch or dinner. The peninsula is wonderful for birding. There are several birding areas, but you can always just sit on the beach, and wait for the birds to land next to you. If you are in the mood for a hike, then the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge area is a great place to hike. If you're looking for adventures for the kids, then go into Gulf Shores and visit the Waterpark, Zoo, mini-golf or the Track Recreation Center. The Gulf State Park also has a mile-long zipline. For those interested in water sports, you can charter a boat or rent a kayak.
