Overview

About the property

Peaceful Retreat - 3BR 2BA Entire House

Once you arrive at this "home away from home", there is no need to ever leave the neighborhood! You are steps away from Flippers Restaurant and Oyster Bar and The Ship Store which has just about everything you'll need! At The Ship Store you can get beer, drinks, supplies, food, t-shirts, candy, hats, visors etc.... And, each night Flipper's Tiki Bar has live music...FUN!!! This is a nice quiet neighborhood with lots of people riding bikes and walking! And, you have views of Terry Cove from the two of the balconies!

As you walk into this open floor plan from the huge porch area, you’ll see a spacious living room, dining room (seats six), bar area (seats three more), and fully stocked kitchen. That’s right, only things you’ll need to add to the kitchen are groceries!

Right off of the kitchen, the master bedroom is conveniently located and also features a new flat screen TV. There’s even a personal balcony right off the Master. Adding to the beauty of this room is an adjoining master bath that hosts a large vanity/dressing room with a washer/dryer. The Master bath has a large soaking tub and walk-in shower. And as you head up the stairs, you’ll find two spacious guest rooms. Both feature new TV’s and they share a bathroom with a shower/tub combo. One of these guest rooms even has its own personal balcony with a view of the bay!

Other than the peaceful scenery that surrounds you, there are many perks to enjoy while staying here. These include a huge porch to lounge on with your family and friends, a covered parking area, stackable washer/dryer, and being just minutes away from the beach, boating, fishing, shopping, restaurants, and endless entertainment Alabama's gorgeous Gulf Coast has to offer!

There are two public boat ramps nearby. There is even a ramp in the neighborhood for jet skis, paddle boards and kayaks. There are several public beaches that are just minutes away and Gulf Shores has a renowned pier for fishing! One of the best parts of the bay area is that there are plenty of dolphins to be seen as well as stunning birds. It is so peaceful, quiet and laid back here in Bear Point, you will never want to stay in a busy beach condominium again!

Bear Point is approximately a 7-10 minute drive to the nearest public beach and near the Orange Beach Recreation Center (1 mile), which has a pool, tennis & basketball courts and fitness center and classes for a small daily fee.

At Bear Point Marina there are....

* Boat transient slips to rent

* Jet Ski Rentals

* Pontoon Boat Rentals

* Dolphin Tours

* Fishing Charter Trips

* Sunset Cruises

Beautiful house love the location

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing bad to say about this house we loved our stay and love the location of this house with an awesome neighborhood. The house was very clean and very pretty. The master bed is probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. In your backyard is flippers restaurant to get something to eat and the best dolphin tour we've ever done before and we also rented jet ski' s which was an awesome time. I highly recommend this house to anyone. I do have one recommendation though. The neighborhood the house is in is a golf cart community and people are driving them all over the place. There is a golf cart at the house but it is off limits. Being able to use the golf cart would be huge. The owner needs to raise the deposit for renters that choose to utilize the golf cart and then this house would be perfect. Even without the golf cart my family still had a great time.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you loved this home. We love it too! And you are right, this is a golf cart community, however, everyone driving those golf carts OWNS them . The owner of this house checked with his attorney and he advised not allowing others to use it. There are too many legal issues with that as well as an age limit. Thanks again!

Great place to relax and have fun!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 ( 4 yr, 9 and 10yrs) had a blast! As many other reviews stated, you get what you see. There are no surprises. The home is well decorated, tidy and clean. You have to remember this is a beach house. Expect some sand and dirt in some nooks and small places, but again, it's a home and not a hotel. Flippers is a 2 minute walk around the corner. They had great food, but a bit pricey. However, it's worth the walk and view. The beach is about 10 minutes away. If you expect to park in a nearby parking lot, you'll have to travel to Gulf Shores State Park. There is relatively no public parking along the Orange Beach side. However, they are building a few new parking lots along Orange Beach. The state park only cost $6 for an all day pass. If you're like me, I had to haul a wagon full of chairs, cooler, supplies, etc. but well worth it. Note: dogs are not allowed on any Alabama beaches. One evening we went on a 2 hour dolphin cruise. I recommend The fun boat on dolphin fun. It cost $20 per person. We saw several dolphin, crab and a beautiful sunset. Toward the end we had the biggest water fight ever. It was so fun! All in all, this was my favorite vacation with my family. The kids enjoyed playing inside and out, while my wife and I relaxed on the deck. Lastly, things you might want to bring: seasoning for food, sugar, coffee, filters (coffee pot available), detergent for the washer, which was great to have, charcoal, lighter fluid, lighter, toilet paper, paper towels and a fan for the deck. Everything else is supplied and well stocked. The owner has been so attentive and responsive to my inquiries. Thanks again for a great vacation. We will definitely be back!

Great location and a beautiful house to spend your vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house has a great location! Flippers is just a short walk away and other popular destinations are just a short drive. The property is clean, well decorated and has everything you need. The neighborhood is quite and peaceful. All the locals are very friendly as well. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who enjoys getting away for a short or long period of time. We will definitely be back!

What a fantastic way to enjoy Gulf Shores! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our 4 children to Gulf shores for vacation. Three of which are teens and it is important that the boys and girls have separate rooms. This was perfect! For some reason, the property is listed as having one bathroom but there are two. This place is clean, tidy, and has absolutely everything you could possibly need. It is very close to everywhere you may want to visit in the area. Melissa was so on top of communication! Questions were answered in an overwhelmingly prompt manner. Very professionally managed. Highly recommend this rental! Let me recommend you get some shrimp at Doc's. You'll know the place, it always looks overpacked on the way to the house. It's great! What an amazing and memorable trip!

Pretty house.

  • 3 of 5

Although the house was very pretty and had plenty of room for me and my crew. It was not convenient for just going and hanging out on the beach which was the reason for goin down there to begin with. It is located in a residential area not really for a 'rental property" I thought it would be. I don't have anything bad to say about the house itself, it just wasn't for us having to load up everything with kids and having to unload everyday.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked this home! Our description online is extremely accurate. We state the distance to the beach and we say in the description that this home is in a subdivision in Orange Beach. I am not sure how much clearer we could make it!! Unless you are staying in a condo or home directly on the beach (which would cost hundreds or even $1000 more than what you paid), you are always going to have to pack your car and drive there. Nowhere in our description does it say you are in walking distance. We would never intend to deceive anyone. Also, you booked this reservation 5 days before your arrival, so there were no beach condos available and that is why you booked our beautiful home...so I'm pretty sure that you were aware that you were not getting a home on the beach. Thanks for renting from us!

Great rental house in Bear Point

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the Bear Point house. 2 adults, a child and a crated dog had plenty of room, lots of kitchen space, and a fabulous deck. I loved the underneath parking, especially for unloading and loading up the car - no problem with the afternoon showers or with sun beating down on you, and the car was cool. The neighborhood was perfect for walking the dog and jogging in the AM. Very quiet neighborhood - probably best for restful vacation or vacation with kids rather than party animals. :) The drive to the beach wasn't very long - about 5-10 minutes. Publix and many restaurants within 10-15 minute drive. I would definitely consider renting this house again, it was perfect for the last minute getaway before school starts.
