GREAT LITTLE VACATION HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This house is located near the beach and lagoon and both are just a short walking distance away. It was very clean and comfortable and fit my group perfectly. It was furnished in the typical beach style and had little touches throughout that made it special. The beach was beautiful and we got some amazing pictures of the sunset over the lagoon.The owners are very easy to work with and I have already recommended this house to several of my friends.

LOVELY BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home, very neat and clean and well equipped with everything you need for a nice stay. Loved the porch swing on the wraparound deck.
The walk to the beach was short and we were close to shopping and restaurants. Plenty of parking space and the outdoor shower was a plus.Very fun and relaxing place to stay and we will definitely come back. I highly recommend this cute little house and have already told many friends about it.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the very positive review. We strive to make our
renters feel at home right down to the front porch swing. We have
decorated the house to give the feeling of a beach cottage as well as
a warm welcome feeling. No one seems to mind the short 400ft walk. Actually
by not being right on the beach you get a view of the Gulf and at the same time you get
some very beautiful vistas associated with the lagoon.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Loved the house and neighborhood. Everything is nearby. Luckily found the lagoon 1/2 mile up the beach road that had a great beach, parking and showers. You can see crabs, fish and friendly Heron's. Great for those who like the beach but not the pounding waves.
The hoouse was very cute and very clean. Owners and neighbors very helpful. Missed wi-fi just a teeny bit!

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This house was in a great, quiet location. The house is very clean and cute. There is a nice front porch (with a swing), and a deck that wraps around most of the house. Also, there is a very nice view of the lagoon, and the beach is right across the road. Perfect for a weekend or week long getaway.

GREAT GULF SHORES LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Great spot for a stay in Gulf Shores. Home is on a quiet dead end street corner, only two short blocks to the ocean. Nice quiet neighborhood.
You can see the public beach access from the warp around porch.
The covered front porch swing overlooks the lagoon and sunsets.
Interior of the home is comfortable and has all you need for your stay.
Great "Home away from Home".

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a very enjoyable vacation. The home is great - all you could ask for. The porch is peaceful and relaxing, we loved the swing. The beach is a very short walk. We would definitely stay here again - we loved it and would recommend it to anyone.
