DON'T WALK TO THE BEACH-STAY ON THE BEACH!

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

4 BA 2 BA Gulf Home - Sleeps 8 adults, 10 with children.

Description:

'My family had one of our best vacations here at the Gulf. The house was a perfect distance from the tourist traps. Speaking of traps, Kiva Dunes was a great golf course and only a mile down the road. We spent most of our time on the beach tanning, swimming, and fishing. We will be back!'

The house is directly on the Gulf of Mexico beach in the small private community of Cabana Beach Estates. Cabana Beach Estates is about 12 miles west of Gulf Shores, Alabama off Fort Morgan Road (Hwy 180). During walks on the beach, you will enjoy miles on natural, undisturbed beach and dunes on each side of the house.

The house has four bedrooms and two baths. It is laid out with two bedrooms and a bath on each side of a great room. Entire front of the great room is glass providing the best possible view of the Gulf and beach. Front bedrooms have sliding glass doors opening onto the deck.

Guests Book Comments:: What a beautiful view! We just loved everything about your wonderful home. The beach was beautiful. The kids loved chasing crabs. We can't wait to return to this charming, cozy home by the sea! We will surely miss looking out at the beautiful ocean every morning. Thanks for the wonderful memories! We will be back!

Guest Book Comments:: Our first visit to Gulf Gaze, and we have truly enjoyed our vacation. We hope to return next year!

My family had one of our best vacations here at the Gulf. The house was a perfect distance from the tourist traps. Speaking of traps, Kiva Dunes was a great golf course and only a mile down the road. We spent most of our time on the beach tanning, swimming, and fishing. I caught several mullet, one catfish, two blue fish, and even hooked a manta ray! We will be back!

Guest Book Comments:: We planned this trip for 5 months. It was everything we had hoped for. The house was great with the covered deck and excellent view. Low traffic on the beach was ideal. Hailey celebrated her 13th birthday on the beach! This was a very special trip - our whole family spent a relaxing week together and look forward to doing it again! On our last night, the dolphins came up and performed for us. We are not ready to go home!

Six girlfriends from high school meet yearly and it is very difficult to find the right accommodation which satisfies all our preferences and meets everyone's expectations...I feel like I struck gold in finding Gulf Gaze...it had everything we wanted and more...enough beds for everyone, two baths, a large gathering area, fantastic deck, and right on the beach...each morning we had coffee under a covered area of the deck and each afternoon we watched the sunset from our lounge chairs on the beach. The owners were so friendly and easy to work with...they even checked on us during our stay! Although I would love to keep this place a secret, I just have to recommend Gulf Gaze to anyone looking for this type of listing. We can't wait to go back!!! A++

My family and my sister-in-law's family shared this home for a spring break get away and what a perfect house it was! We couldn't have asked for a better home. Hearing the ocean waves as you fall asleep and wake up was very relaxing. Our children loved digging for shells and at night looking for little white crabs that come on the beach. We took advantage of the home having a fully stocked kitchen and cooked most of our meals.
The home is perfect for a small family or, in our case, 2 families that want to share the experience together. I would reccommend this home to anyone who wants the experience the ocean first hand.

Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful beach home with our extended family for the week. We had the best and most relaxing vacation with our kids and grandkids. The weather was great and the food was good; but best of all was staying on the beach in your home (with all the conveniences of our home) made it seem as if we didn't have a care in the world and owned our own private piece of paradise! We're already talking about and planning for next year!

Our family just returned from our first stay at Gulf Gaze last night. Today we booked it for a week next summer. This was our first real family vacation with our five children and it was awesome. We were able to sit on the deck and watch the kids chase crabs and play in the sand. We were close enough to the house when we were all at the beach that we could easily walk back as the kids needed, and could also easily haul kayaks back and forth between the house and beach. Our four month old slept a lot because of the sounds of the ocean that you can hear at the house.

We had some rain while we were there, but we were still able to enjoy being outside on the covered deck. The water was crystal clear and the beach was very clean. It was a real treat to have a full moon and see rainbows on several days we were there. Vacation ended much too soon!

Spectacular sunsets and a beautiful house

We had the good fortune to spend a week and Catherine and Wayne's home in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Often when renting through the Internet, you wonder is "what you see, what you get?" In this cas it is even better. The location is a short ride from downtown Gulf Shores, but far enough so you don't see high rise condos, and have the hustle and bustle of downtown. In fact just to the east 200 yards you have two miles of state parks, sand dunes, and undisrupted sea turtle nesting areas!

The home is beautifully maintained and is built around the large glass windows you see in the pictures. We were looking for a spot just like this and will be returning again....soon!
