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.
