RELAX ON LITTLE LAGOON AND ENJOY THE BREEZE FROM OUR HUGE SCREENED PORCH

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

This beautiful waterfront cottage sits on the north side of Little Lagoon. About five miles down Ft. Morgan Rd, its elevated screened porch makes it easy to avail yourself of the steady breezes that lull lagoon dwellers by day and night. Swim, fish or ski in the calm waters or take a short drive to the white sandy gulf beach. Avid golfers will love being just across the street from the Peninsula Golf Course. A five mile walking/biking trail is also just across the street.

Flying South for the Winter? This house is the perfect place for snowbirds and it is big enough to share with a second couple for a real winter bargain.

Perfect for snowbirds: If you are thinking of wintering in Gulf Shores, this cottage is the ideal place. The split floor plan makes it a perfect home for two couples to share. Each side has two bedrooms, one bath and French doors to the wonderful screened porch. The great room in the center of the house contains a huge kitchen, comfortable seating and a large dining area where you can share good times with family and friends.

Just up the road, the City of Gulf Shores has a fantastic recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, indoor track, ping pong and pool tables, water aerobics, yoga and other fitness classes. In the winter the city's Special Events Department sponsors an outstanding series of performances.

Golfers Paradise: Who could ask for more than waterfront and a top of the line golf course! The Peninsula Golf Club is located just across the street. It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 10 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.

Shop till you drop: Shop over 120 brand name outlets on Hwy 59 in Foley!! Brooks Brothers, Gap, Polo, Ann Taylor and more draw shoppers from miles around. From housewares, to clothing, to home furnishing, there is something for everyone at the Tanger Outlet mall just 10 miles north in Foley.

Great Family Vacation, Great House!

  • 5 of 5
There's not much more to say that the other reviews have not already said. We were extremely satisfied with this vacation home. The screened porch and even the open area below, which became the favorite for many of us, offers great views and an incredible breeze. It's a great retreat away from it all, yet close enough that a few minute drive will have you in the heart of Gulf Shores.

The home is very nicely decorated, excellently maintained, and very clean. We found everything that we could have needed for cooking. There is a nice dishwasher so you won't have to spend a lot of time doing the dishes after dinner. A big plus on vacation! There is plenty of room for even large groups to spread out, both inside and out. We used the outside dining table nearly every night. It was great to eat dinner with that fantastic gulf breeze.

The lagoon is very shallow and perfect for small kids. We waded out several hundred feet and the water was only chest deep. We spent many early morning and late afternoon hours fishing in the lagoon. For the fisherman going, the fish love the shrimp. You will have a bite in just a couple of minutes. I caught a very nice black drum about 100 yards off the dock and we all caught croakers and a trout or two.

Lastly, but most certainly not least, Martha! Martha was great, she went above and beyond to make sure that everything was just perfect for us upon arrival. She quickly responded to a battery of questions that often result when vacationing with a large group. We even changed up the plan just before our arrival and she was all over it. It was such a pleasure dealing with her. A+ for Martha!

Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in March and loved everything about the house. It was spacious and the decor had a quaint beachy feel. The kitchen was very well-stocked.

The managers left detailed and helpful instructions for getting around Gulf Shores. They were also very prompt in answering or returning phone calls and assisting us, and were very warm and easy to talk to.

The best part of the house is the porch shown in the picture, and also the pier/private beach along the lagoon. We drove to the real beach on the Gulf a couple times, but we really enjoyed just laying out down by the lagoon most days.

This is the PERFECT location if you are looking for a quiet place to relax but still want to be close to fun things to do, like Lu Lu's restaurant and the Little Zoo that could!!! The home was so clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone...we plan on booking again next year!!!!

Enchanting, relaxing and quiet family retreat

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to tell you the truth for fear that you will snag it before I make my reservation.
Moms...finally a place where you relax when you hear the back door slam...the little lagoon is like a large wading pool. No undertow.
The kitchen is better than my own...everything at your fingertips... large, inviting, practical. A couple of trips to the grocery and you are set.
'He' heaven i.e.golf, fishing,trails,history at your fingertips.
Finally, the Howards who manage are most hospitable and accomodating.
Gulf Shores is a treasure. Sweet home Alabama.

The Fort Morgan peninsula is filled with local flavor and offers unique access to Mobile Bay, Little Lagoon and the white Gulf beaches. The area is great for people who want to be away from the crowd yet close to shopping, entertainment and sports activities. The Bon Secour National Wildlife Preserve offers a wonderful hiking trail and birdwatching opportunities. Three golf courses are within a few minutes' drive. History buffs will enjoy the ruins and museum at Ft. Morgan and her sister, Ft. Gaines, which is a ferry's ride across to Dauphin Island.
