We are a family with 2 school-aged children.

Susan purchased this house in 2005

In 2004 we discovered that OMG, Alabama had a beach--and it was a really beautiful beach. We fell in love with the sugar white beaches and family-friendly atmosphere. We liked that Gulf Shores was easier to reach than any other beach we knew of along the Gulf Coast (no 2 lane roads to get here but it is still not huge and built up!)

From the beach road we spotted the house & its big grassy pool area & porches and loved it, but couldn't really imagine that it was a possibility for us. We came up with a plan that calls for another 20 years of hard work, a lot of cooperation from Mother Nature, and the idea that other families like ours will continue to love Gulf Shores and want to come visit.

We love the West Beach area of Gulf Shores. It is low-key and very residential but you are just a couple of miles from restaurants, within 3 miles of Waterville and the Zoo, within 4 miles of several grocery stores.

Pool, pool, pool plus a nice BIG yard. Love the quiet location about 600' back from the beach, but also like have refreshing water right in the backyard. And maybe this is sacrilege, but it is really nice having a grass yard instead of sand! Our children were 3 & 5 when we bought the house and could manage the distance to the beach.

We try to have the things we like at the house for your stay, like a grill, beach cart, books, games, etc. Lots of houses don't have those sorts of things but we hope they add a little something extra to your stay.

We had an awesome time! This is the first property we ever rented for a vacation and it was amazing. We had the whole family (8 adults and 5 kids ages 8 thru 14) and everyone was very sad to leave. So many wonderful memories were made. Thank you Susan and Geoff for everything you did to made our stay the very best experience possible. We will definitely be doing this again in the future. The kids and I loved going up to the crows nest!

The only real problem we had was way out of the owner's control - traffic! Come & leave early

We loved our stay - both children and their families joined us for the week - plenty of room to gather together and to separate when we neded quiet moments. We had seniors to toddlers and all enjoyed it! Loved having two kitchens, utility rooms, and living areas. Wish the crows nest had been accessible - bet the view would have been something else. Weather was even great! So much to do in the area - needed a longer time, but young families can't be gone much longer than a week.
