About Susan

We are a family with school age children. We bought this bit of sand with a beachview with a dream of building a place where big extended families like ours could get everyone together. We didn't know at the time that life would lead to our living in Gulf Shores where we now manage our vacation rental homes and those of a number of our neighbors and friends.

Susan purchased this house in 2007

Why Susan chose Gulf Shores

We had our duplex When Pigs Fly which is just a few hundred feet from the lot on which we built Dream Big. We love this stretch of family-friendly West Beach where we are just a couple of miles from restaurants & shops, but in an area with just 4 rows of homes between the Gulf on the South, and Little Lagoon on the North.

What makes this house unique

Owning When Pigs Fly, and based on our own growing family which at that time was 18 (grandparents, parents, children), we knew it was hard to find a place where everyone could gather. We could have our family on one side, and the cousins on the other side. We put in the things we like or needed for our family--spaces for the kids, bedrooms that worked for parents with small children, a big pool area, grills, etc.

Reviewer Comments:
We rented both sides of this home, and there were doors on floors 2 & 3 that connected the 2 sides of the duplex together. The photos do not do this beautiful home justice. It is very spacious, and the rooms elegant. The elevator was helpful for my elderly father, and also for moving luggage and supplies to the upper floors. I do feel that expecting us to wash and dry all the towels before departure was just unfair. It was also not clarified in the contract before we agreed to rent the property.

Absolutely gorgeous! We had 22 adults staying in the house and we could have easily had more! There was plenty of room to spread out if you wanted privacy and plenty of seating in the kitchen/family room area to all hangout together. The kitchen has everything you would need; even a crockpot that came in handy. The house was right across the street from the Gulf and was in a nice and quiet area. The views from the house were amazing. I would love to get a big group of people and go back again soon!

The house was great. It surpassed our expectations. The private pool was great and we enjoyed all of the beach chairs and pool equipment supplied with the house. The house is also within a short drive of many great golf courses. We hope to be back at the Dream Big house in the future.

I am very satisfied with my entire rental experience. Everything from finding a house to arriving went very smoothly. The owners of this house are wonderful people and they put a lot of work into making sure their customers are taken care of and happy. <br/><br/>The house looks wonderful and the kitchen is nice. It has a great view of the beach and it only takes about 2 minutes to walk over.

I loved the Dream Big house! We had a great stay! The West first floor bath (the one closest to the pool) needs work, shower head and tub spout were in very poor condition, very little water pressure. Pool was very clean, outdoor shower was great! I would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: If you find an issue, please give us a call. During your stay you have both a cell phone number to reach us at any time, and a mobile app with a place to report a maintenance issue (it texts us) if you don't want to call. We would have been happy to take care of the shower head issue during your stay, but we didn't know about it. We appreciate you letting us know and were able to fix it in just a few minutes.

Map

We are located in West Beach, a narrow stretch of land bound by the Gulf to the south, and Little Lagoon to the north. You'll have great views of both. In addition to the normal joys of our sugar white beach, a block and a half to our west is the 'pass', where the Gulf feeds Little Lagoon. The pass offers great fishing and an area that is perfect for kids to hunt for hermit crabs or watch the heron and pelicans in action.

Other Activities: rent a sea kayak, parasail, charter a fishing boat, take a dolphin cruise

Golf: We have 9 signature courses nearby as well as the Gulf State Park Course. You have a nice range of courses located 3-15 miles from West Beach so you can easily try them all!
