Why Debbie Thompson chose Gulf Shores

We love the beach and we love vacationing with friends. So in 1995, we designed a home that would accommodate our family and friends. Laguna Key is the perfect place for family and friends to gather. The living area, den, kitchen, and dining are situated on the second level which provides magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this house unique

Uncrowded pristine beaches, the wildlife preserve, Little Lagoon and space for a leisurely walk or bike ride, make our home the perfect getaway. A neighborhood pool and tennis court provide alternatives to the beach. Great fishing from the pier on Little Lagoon. Get in tune with nature in the National Wildlife Preserve.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent the most wonderful weekend in your home last week. We all soaked up the art and discussed it all week. We agreed that it inspired and moved us. It is such a wonderful family reunion home and we thank you for sharing it with us! I loved the one on the landing between the stairs that has the written words on the white frame and the one that says "Done" next to the kitchen counter. They are all so vivid in my mind and felt like they were characters sharing our vacation with us.

Labor Day Vacation

What a wonderful place to spend a week with family. The house was great and very comfortable. The weather was perfect. This is a great time of the year to spend at the beach. No crowds on the beach or restaurants. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Grandkids paradise!

  • 4 of 5
We recently spent the week at this beautiful home on the beach. There was plenty of room for a family of 8 adults and 8 kids to spread out. Having the second refrigerator downstairs was a plus. The two washer/dryers were wonderful! Kitchen was well supplied. Kids loved riding bikes in the safe subdivision. Beach was so close that we could watch the kids play in the sand from the house. Loved the privacy that Laguna Key afforded, and the beautifully clear, clean water.
On the negative side, beach properties take a hit. The hot tub on the third level only worked for two of the days we were there. The ice maker never worked. The chairs on the deck overlooking the water were mostly broken. It would have been nice to have some chairs to sit on outside, but only 3 or 4 were safe to sit on. The decorative stucco balls on the front porch were either broken or non-existent. The mattresses could use replacing in all cases. The ceiling in the living room showed signs of molding in the areas of the vents--which were rusted. As I said, the house has great pluses, but the negatives of maintaining a rental property in a beach environment, with the humidity must be monumental. The location of Laguna Key at the end of the beach might not be a positive for young couples seeking nights out on the town, or for teens looking for action, but it was perfect for us with grandchildren ranging in age from 4-15. The drive into Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, though long, was not difficult. I would rent this house again, though, because the positives way outweighed the negatives. We all had a great time, created wonderful memories, enjoyed the luxury of walking the short boardwalk to the water, and the privacy afforded by being at the end of the beach in a private subdivision. A return visit would definitely be on my agenda!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your week at Laguna Key. I'm sorry you had trouble with the hot tub and ice maker. Repairs are done as quickly as possible when trouble is reported. As to the mold on vents, this occurs when doors and windows are left open and the hot air meets cold air around the vents. You are right concerning maintenance in the humid environment and we do try to keep up with maintence during the busy rental season, but some issues have to wait until the end of summer. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to see you again.

We will be back!

What you see on the VRBO website is what you get.....and that's good. Although there were just the three of us , with one of us being our Scotty dog, the house was cozy and comfortable. The beach was just perfect....clean and private. And one of the best features was the rental agent, Margaret. She was always accessible and most helpful. We will return to this home.

Would Recommend This Location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The house was perfect for 11 people and 1 dog. It was clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. Our favorite thing was the beautiful beach and "being away from the action." At times, we had the beach all to ourselves. The house provided all the amenities we needed.
