PIER ENVY - 5 BDRM ONO ISLAND BEACH HOUSE WITH POOL. SLEEPS 10

Ono Island Orange Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11) Weekly rental only.

Located on Ono Island--an exclusive, gated community--you will find this yellow stucco Florida-style home as easy as it is lovely. It is 3,500+ square feet with plenty of space for 10 people. Enter from the paved driveway and go up the stairs, past the Adirondack chairs on the back porch to see huge picture windows featuring St. John’s bayou (and the intercoastal waterway) with all its flora and fauna. Entryway has the kitchen to the right and a coat closet and laundry room just to your left to keep you organized. The kitchen is fully equipped with an open-air layout to make cooking fun. The dining room table seats 6 or 8 people under a glass chandelier. There is also bar seating for 4 at the kitchen island to squeeze in a few extra guests, a wet bar to keep adults entertained, and ceiling fans to provide a gentle breeze. The main living room has floor-to-ceiling windows, a lovely fireplace, and lets in perfectly-pink light during sunsets. Go ahead, step on out to the front porch and smell that salty sea air.

Upstairs, there is a Nantucket-style bedroom with hand-painted clouds on the ceiling, a queen bed, well-loved furniture collected from near and far, and a private bath. Across the living room is the “Flamingo” bedroom, which features an adorable (private) pink bathroom, fun artwork, and a queen bed on white, fluffy carpet.

The Master Bedroom is a veritable sanctuary with a four-poster king bed, elegant furnishings, a walk-in closet, a jetted bathtub, separate shower, and a private sitting room with a knock-out view. A windowed door goes out to the common balcony from this room.

Downstairs, you will find a huge couch, a big TV, a “fridge nook” with microwave and sink. In the back, there is one bedroom with a queen bed and its own bath; the other bedroom also has its own bath and features two closets. One queen with a twin bunk up top lets you pack in the kids…or three adventuresome adults. A tiled floor down here means easy clean up.

Please note that all bedrooms have TV and their own private bathroom.

Now that you’ve seen the sleeping accommodations, forget about them. You are guaranteed to spend 100% of your waking hours outside. You won’t be able to resist the large pool with a deep end, entry steps, and surrounding fenced deck. Lots of chairs/chaises are available for sunbathers.

After your swim, go on down the long pier that arches over the marsh. Drop in the kayak at the “swim deck” and go for a paddle. Then beat the heat at the end of the pier under the covered boathouse. Take a nap in the hammock as the sea breeze rocks you to sleep. Plop down in the custom-made benches to watch glorious sail boats and power yachts cruise before catching the breath-taking sunset.

Catching fish? The lights under the decking sure bring them up and the boathouse sink makes fish-cleaning easy. Talk about fresh fish. Local porpoises also know where the good fishing is and will probably be spotted by a member of your crew.

Come back up the pier, flick on the pool lights, and turn on some tunes. Throw together some sides to complement your fresh catch--your outdoor barbeque party is about to start.

To work off your food and beverage indulgences, biking/walking trails pervade the island. The island’s public tennis courts and children’s playground are within easy walking distance, as is the island's boat ramp. For serious fitness buffs, there is an exercise club on the island that has an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool, private tennis and basketball courts, and a formal gym with cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights. See the schedule for offered exercise classes, such as yoga. Access to Ono North Recreational Center can usually be arranged for $50/week. For more information on Ono Island, check out the link below.

For maximum convenience, contact us for airport-to-island transportation and stocking your fridge. With advance notice, we can connect you with an experienced sea captain who will pick you up from the pier for a private fishing charter.

Please contact me directly about availability.

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
Pier Envy is a great escape for families with young or teenage children. This spacious house is tastefully decorated and offers plenty of room for everyone. The adults stayed upstairs while the kids had bedrooms and a large TV room downsatirs. We enjoyed the pool and pier so much we hardly left the house, even to go to the beach. The owner is very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend this property.

Just Like Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Not having vacationed in the Orange Beach, AL/Pensacola, FL area before, we were thrilled to discover Ono Island and this beautiful property! Pier Envy is a perfect location for a family vacation--in our case, two families vacationing together. The house is luxurious, but comfortable just like visiting a friend's home. It is located in a gated community accessible only by bridge that feels "exclusive" with high security for safety and limited traffic. The house and property are beautiful and well-maintained.

Pier Envy has something for all age groups. The property has a pool as well as a long pier and dockhouse on the inland waterway. Fishing, canoeing, swimming, and crab trapping are possible. The owners are very gracious by having all the comforts of home for guests to freely use. Several public beaches on the Florida and Alabama sides are in very close proximity. The beach we often used on the AL side was within 2 minutes from the Ono Island entrance.

The property owners were attentive to our needs, and called on occasion to check in on us while we were on the property. Whenever we had a question, they quickly responded to our needs. In fact, by the end of our week, we were referring to the owner as our "Aunt"!

Pier Envy and Ono Island are within short drives of a variety of attractions, restaurants, and activities in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, or Pensacola.

We would highly recommend this Pier Envy for a family vacation due to the spacious accommodations. In our group, we had 4 adults, 2 teenagers, and 4 children ages 7-12. We never felt crowded! We could not have imagined a more suitable, relaxing, and comfortable property with so many amenities for our Spring Break vacation.

Great 2 family spring break getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at pier envy was perfect!!! We had 2 families (4 adults 6 children) ages range from 8-15. The layout of the house worked great for boys in the basement and adults upstairs! We had our own private pool, pier with gorgeous view, hammock, and kayaks. The island provided a great morning run while training for my mini marathon. The beach was a short 5 minute drive. We loved the location. The southern hospitality was welcoming at all tourist attractions and the kids thought it was great to go to one beach in Florida on one day the next day, a beach in Alabama; they kept saying "we are in two places at once". We felt super safe with the security on premises. We can't wait to visit again and we have recommended the place to several family members. Thanks again to Kathryn and Jody for making our trip the best!!! Even the teenagers didn't get bored!!! Great food and entertainment at Lulu's and Lambert's-- perfect for kids.

Relaxing week with the family

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Pier Envy for a week and loved every minute! The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool while my husband and I looked forward to having a glass of wine each night as we watched the sunset from the end of the dock. We took advantage of the kitchen and grill almost every night. The interior of the house is beautifully decorated, and we were all able to relax on the sofa downstairs at night. We can't wait for our next trip back!
