Overview

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Sorry, our quiet cul de sac is not appropriate for college groups!

Lucy the Big Bama Beach House is a wonderful, family-friendly, Gulf Shores vacation rental beach house--close to the beach, lots of room, PLUS a shared pool (March-October) and fishing pier! We think the Gulf and lagoon offer you the best of both worlds.

Lucy is located in a quiet family-oriented setting in the West Beach area of Gulf Shores just 300 yds from the beach, and 2.5 miles west of Hwy 59. You are away from the condos and crowds, yet close to all the restaurants and activities. Our cul-de-sac is directly on Little Lagoon so you have good fishing and crabbing, a place to tie up your small boat or jetski, or just a wonderful place to enjoy sunset cocktails (a neighborhood tradition!).

With over 2700 square feet on 3 Floors plus 2 Large Covered Porches & 2 Open Decks, you'll have plenty of room to spread out at Lucy the Big Bama Beach House.

Lucy sleeps up to 14 in 4 Bedrooms + 3rd Floor Crow��s Nest. Each bedroom opens to a porch or deck. There are 3 large, full baths, a powder room on the main floor and an outdoor shower.

There are 2 King Masters, 1 on the Main Floor, 1 on the 2nd Floor. Each has a Private Bath, Private Deck, and TV. The Main Floor Master Suite is extra luxurious with a King Bed & Luxury Bath with Garden Tub & a Separate Shower.

On the 2nd floor you'll find 2 More Bedrooms, a 3rd King and a Family Bedroom with a Queen + a Pair of Twins. In the 3rd Floor Crow's Nest you'll find another Pair of Twins.

Lucy's lovely, tranquil setting & amenities make it a truly unique place for a family vacation. Just across a cul-de-sac from the house there’s a Shared Pool, Fishing Pier with Boat Slips & a Small White Sand Beach on Little Lagoon. You are just 300 yards from the Big White Sand Beach on the Gulf.

This peaceful Pool & Pier retreat is just for the houses on our cul-de-sac. The covered fishing pier is a great place to fish, crab or just relax. Cocktails at sunset on the pier are a tradition in the neighborhood - the sunset view is one of the prettiest in Gulf Shores.

The pier is equipped with chairs, a fish cleaning table, lighting, electricity & hammock hooks. You can even tie up a boat or jet ski here. There is room in the driveway to park a boat trailer, and a nearby public launch. The Pool is open March through October and offers a beautiful view of the lagoon & plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing. And the little beach by the pool is a safe place for even small children to wade & play in the sand while you relax at the pool or pier.

Lucy the Big Bama Beach House rents by the week from Saturday to Saturday throughout the year. Lucy is in a quiet family subdivision, and is not appropriate for young adult (under 25) singles groups. This policy & occupancy limits are strictly enforced by the owner and home owners association.

This house was great for our family reunion. The location is great; away from the commercial areas, quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the beach. Yet plenty to do for entertainment within a short distance.

11 of us (ages 1-58) stayed for a week in October. There was plenty of space for all of us. The pool and little beach proved invaluable especially the day the surf conditions were high. It was a 10 minute walk to the beach which was made easily, even by the kids. The house had everything you could need including tons of beach stuff, plenty of housewares, and lots of hot water. Susan and Geoff were terrific and answered all our questions quickly. The app was awesome and made it easy to find info regarding the house and area. Would stay here again in the future.

Lucy was everything we expected. We had 12 guests and had plenty of room to spread out and not feel like we were on top of each other. The beach was in walking distance and we took advantage of the sunshine every day. We will definitely be back to Lucy for future vacations. Thank you Susan and Geoff for giving us the opportunity to stay in your home and build memories.

This was one of the best family vacations we have ever taken! The house was perfect. It was the cleanest vacation house we have ever stayed in. It was also spaced out so that everyone had enough room. We will absolutely be back.

Sheets were disgusting and the owners were no help.

  • 1 of 5
I would not recommend this house to anyone! Hmm do I begin with the dirty bed sheets that looked like it had spray tan everywhere or the dirty floors that make your feet black or the broken shower knob or the dirty towels that had mascara all over them that by the way guest have to wash themselves. When we first arrived the house looked amazing, it was down the street from the beach ( oh you share a pool with the community and the dock dont let the picture of the dock fool you). Got into the house and there were so many steps. The house is tall so with a 5,2,and 9 month old it was scary! Oh and the baby gate we found in the closet was broken. I didnt let my neice crawl on the floor anyways because the floor was dirty. That night I am getting ready for bed and I pull back the sheets EWWW orange stains everywhere!!! So I took pictures and told my mother to send it to the owners because for as much as we payed al-be darned if I sleep in some nasty sheets. She my mother called the owner he apologized says he will be by in the morning. NEVER SHOWS the whole week goes by and they never show. So the whole week I was on vacation me and my husband slept on top of the sheets. Thank goodness we brought our own pillows and a blanket! This house is not worth what you pay a week. The dock was hogged with fishermen the "small beach" great for small kids yea right dirty and full of hermit crabs. DONT RENT THIS HOUSE! I felt like once the owners got their money they didnt care. Do not do not rent this house especially if you have small children. I usually dont write reviews but this house was so bad I had to oh and the couch stinks, so its not even comfortable sitting on it.

Owner's Response: Sometimes we screw up. The guest called once about a permanent stain from high SPF suncreen on sheets on a day when we had a bunch of air conditioning issues and we forgot to follow up. She didn't call us again during her stay and her frustration spiraled from there. At the end of their stay this was their feedback by email "The sheet on the queen bed of the second floor was very stained. The pillow case of that bed was stained. Several of the towels were stained. The shower knob was hanging in that bedroom. When my daughter tried to take a shower the knob fell off. I had to sweep and mop the floor. It was very dirty.

Other than those issues the house is very beautiful and our vacation was good." We hope if you have an issue you'll call a second time if you don't hear back. We only heard about the shower knob and other details after the end of their stay. We hate that we missed them the first Sunday. We dropped the ball. And we did not let them know ahead of time that we had bleached the sheets but they had high SPF sunscreen stains (clean but not pretty) and could bring replacements if they wanted but were trying to get everything put together so their family could move in.

By the way, it is a 4 story house--just like it looks, just like we describe it. We do not provide baby gear. The broken baby gate was courtesy of a previous guest who did not take it home or return it. There are definitely hermit crabs in the lagoon--most kids LOVE them. It is a shared pool, usually not busy, but occasionally it is. Homes with private pools are available. They are more expensive, and they also have stairs.
