Overview

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-16)

Come enjoy your own Southern Surprise! Enjoy a private pool and great views of the Gulf of Mexico & Little Lagoon at our Gulf Shores vacation rental beach house only 200 yards from the beach. This is closer than many 'gulf front' resorts and has an elevator--a rare find among West Beach homes!

Enjoy your own custom gunite private pool. Relax in the lounge chairs and enjoy the views. We also have grills and picnic tables for your use during your stay.

Southern Surprise has lots of nice luxury touches like a huge master bath on each level, wet bars with under counter icemakers, private baths for each bedroom and more. You'll love the pillow-top mattresses and soft sheets. Wonderful porches provide great views of the Gulf to the south, and Little Lagoon to the north.

The house is divided into two three-bedroom/three bath halves, one stacked over the other, with an interior connecting stairway and an elevator. Great for togetherness or shut the doors and each feels like its own house.

Each floor of Southern Surprise has a spacious living area with wide open Gulf views and a large covered porch with a table and chairs to enjoy outdoor dining or relaxing. The beautifully equipped kitchen is open to the living area and features custom cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, adjoining lagoon-view private porch, and master bath with separate Jacuzzi tub, shower and double vanities. The second bedroom features a queen bed and private bath. The third has a pair of twins, a lagoon-view balcony and a private bath.

This laid-back section of Gulf Shores known as West Beach has 4 rows of houses from the Gulf on the south to Little Lagoon on the north but is only 2.5 miles west of Hwy 59 with its selection of restaurants, shops and attractions.

Great, family-friendly area close to Waterville USA, The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, putt-putt, and more. A major outlet mall with Coach, Gap, Ralph Lauren, Nike, Juicy Couture and more is 8 miles north in Foley.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This comment came from our first guests at Southern Surprise.



Thank you so much for letting my group stay in your home Southern Surprise. The house was amazing and the week there could not have been a better vacation for all of us. We enjoyed the service that you both provided when something went wrong with the house and could not have asked for better people to rent from. We will all be telling our family and friends about this and other homes you own and we all hope to rent from you again.



Sincerely,



Kathryn South and the Rhodes crew

Reviewer Comments:

My husband, our children and grandchildren had a wonderful vacation at Southern Surprise. We were blessed with beautiful weather for the week so the kids played in the pool and enjoyed the beach so much ! The house was great with everything you need for a relaxed vacation and was very clean and well kept. The location is far enough away from the busy area that you feel you are secluded and yet close enough that you can be at the shops and restaurants in minutes. We dined at Lambert's , Mikee,s ,Tacky Jacks, and Cracker Barrel, shopped the island stores, visited the park at Orange Beach, hung out at the pool and beach and played games all night. Loved everything and will definitely come back! I do wish the pool had handrails as I was not able to get in , however, having the elevator gave me freedom to go a lot more than I have been able to in past years at our other locations we have visited.

Guys Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home for a group of 8 golfers. Geoff was very easy to work with and we had our broken dishwasher handle fixed very promptly. It was our first golf trip to the Gulf as we usually hit the Carolinas but we will definitely be back in the future.

I like to take morning runs and the home was in a pefect spot to take a nice jog. Home was spotless and we really enjoyed our stay.

Southern Surprise is a lovely home that was very clean and comfortable for a family of 12 people. The three children who visited had a ball. It was especially helpful to have an elevator for the elderly and for hauling groceries. The one and only annoyance was having to wash the towels before leaving in the morning. We would definitely go back to Southern Surprise.

We loved our stay. The home had everything we needed. The ocean was close, the pool was awesome and we had plenty of room for all of us. There were plenty of dishes, loved the ice maker. It was the perfect place for us to hang out and enjoy everyone!

Definitely enjoyed our mini college reunion at southern surprise. Having an elevator and pool were great for those of us with kids. Well equipped kitchen helped us save money by making meals at the house and enjoying everyone's company rather than bring our screaming kids to restaurants haha. Really enjoyed our stay.
