THE PERFECT GULF FRONT BEACH HOUSE ~ PARADISE AWAITS!

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

Almost Heaven on the Beach* Gulf Front Home *4 Bedrooms/2 Baths* Sleeps 10

Enjoy the beautiful unobstructed view from the large beachfront deck, or walk directly to beach and the fabulous Gulf waters. Watch for the dolphins when the Gulf is calm, and enjoy riding the waves with your boogie board when the surf is up!

Almost Heaven is a freshly decorated beachfront home with tile floors throughout and ceiling fans in all rooms. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable.

The kitchen is fully equipped, including a full sized refrigerator, range, dishwasher, microwave, and small appliances including a crock pot, hot plate, hand mixer, blender, coffee maker, and more.

The living room has cathedral ceilings and a wonderful view of the beach and gulf from the sofa, chairs and two matching recliners. It also has satellite TV with DVD/MP3/VCR and additional televisions in three of the four bedrooms.

All four bedrooms have large built-in chests of drawers and spacious closets.

Three bedrooms have queen beds, and the fourth has two twin-sized beds. We also have a Fisher-Price 3-n-1 travel portable crib and highchair. A queen sized sleeper sofa is available in the living area.

Linens and normal cleaning are included in the rental fee.

Parking is located under the home.

Amenities: We are members of The Beach Club, and as our guests you can enjoy all of the privileges that The Beach Club has to offer (administrative fee from The Beach Club applies/$15 per person per day/ages 5 and under free).You can enjoy swimming in any of the Five outdoor pools, and sunbathing areas at The Club. There are also Five Jacuzzis, two steam rooms, two saunas, indoor pool, exercise room, an European health spa, game room, gated playground, and a beauty salon.

The Beach Club offers fine dining at the Beach Club Restaurant which includes a lovely outdoor balcony overlooking the pool and Gulf of Mexico.

More casual dining is offered at the Village Market where you can also purchase groceries and gourmet sundries. If you prefer to snack by the pool, there is a tiki bar offering frozen summer drinks and an outdoor grill. In addition, there is a soda fountain and delicious ice cream parlor at the Village Mercantile.

There are activities offered for all age groups. The area is abundant with fabulous golf courses: Kiva Dunes, The Peninsula, and Craft Farms, just to name a few. There are also tennis courts at the Beach Club. During the summer months, there are planned activities for the young ones, such as visits to the zoo, face painting, pizza parties, and contests of all kinds on the beach! In addition, there are planned winter activities for the snow birds!

While the house is lovely and very comfortable, the most impressive feature of Almost Heaven on the Beach is the front yard: white sand and the Gulf of Mexico.

The house itself is so relaxing. The view is incredible. Almost Heaven is designed to bring families together. It is close enough to 'town' to enjoy going out to dinner or souvineer shopping (lots to do: visit gulfshores.com), but in a private neighborhood where you will enjoy your space and privacy. Enjoy getting to know each other again. That is what family vacations are for.

About John & Missy Tyler

I married my high school sweetheart in 1986 in my hometown, Decatur, Alabama.Taught elementary school in Trussville for 5 years before becoming a stay at home mom to our sons, both of whom are now in high school. When the kids were tiny we lived in Ohio for a year, New Zealand for 2+ years, then Poland and San Francisco. When it was time to settle down again, we chose the beautiful Gulf Coast as our home in 2002. We love showing off our chosen hometown, so feel free to ask us anything!

John & Missy Tyler purchased this house in 2006

Why John & Missy Tyler chose Gulf Shores

We prayed over our vacation home search intensely. When we walked into Almost Heaven (then named No Worry Inn), we knew it was the one. We felt an incredible peace when we walked in the door. 100% of our guests have been perfect, really! Often housekeeping calls and says they basically cleaned a clean house. We consider this house on loan from the Lord, a talent entrusted to us for a time.

What makes this house unique

Directly on the Gulf of Mexico, 75 feet of white sand. A boardwalk is ideal for brides. All of the living on one level makes it easier on young and mature alike. The ceramic tile floor throughout is ideal for those with allergies, or those who just like the cleanliness of tile. Almost Heaven's floorplan of two bedrooms and a bathroom on the east side and the west side is comfortable for two families vacationing together. The great room with cathedral ceilings and a bank of windows facing the Gulf brings families together. For an administrative fee, you can use our Beach Club membership for pools, hot tubs, tennis, and more.

The perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This summer we will spend our fifth summer vacation at Almost Heaven on the Beach. It is absolutely the perfect vacation home! We have been going each year since our youngest was 20-months-old and she will be six this summer. The home provides everything you will need - a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living area and spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds plenty of closet/drawer space. There is even a pack-n-play crib and high chair which we took advantage of the first couple of years and my 2-year-old nephew now uses. While preparing meals in the kitchen, you look directly out on the gulf through the huge bay window in the living area. Being directly on the beach means that we can come and go as we please and we can walk down the beach to The Beach Club when the girls want to swim in the pool. I especially love sitting on the beach-front deck that spans the back of the home and reading in the morning and after the kids have gone to bed. Nothing beats the sounds of the surf after dark! The beach is quiet and even during the heat of the summer (we go in July) you never have to worry about smacking someone with a frisbee! We enjoy the seclusion of the Fort Morgan area, but also like having plenty of options nearby when we want to get out and explore. There are lots of great restaurants and shopping just a few miles away. But back to the house - if you are looking for a great home with lots of ammenities, this is the place! We eagerly await our annual vacation and feel as if we are walking into our "second home" when we arrive.

Almost Heaven is Paradise!!!

This is a great place to go and just get away frim it all. I love the layout out of the house. Imagine sitting out on the deck having your morning breakfast watching the vast ocean and wondering where the waves have been. Just a few feet off the deck you can stick your toes in the sandy white beach and then play in the water, what a great day this makes. Then so sit and watch the sunset, simply blessed is all you can say.

We stay every year in November and we love it! It is the perfect place for our family and little boy! He loves playing out on the deck and I love relaxing there. I always come back from that week relaxed. Its clean, organized, and feels like home! The owners are awesome to work with and the view is worth a million bucks!!! Beautiful beaches and nice quiet atmosphere! Internet works great and a huge movie selection!

Want to just drop of the rush of life? We did!

What a wonderful get away. No oil in the water, weather perfect and the house was just perfect for our family. Our grown sons and family's came, lay out was great. Beds SO comfy, kitchen well supplied. Views from the house are super. We enjoyed everything from having our morning coffee on the deck to home made ice cream in the evening. So easy just to wander down the beach to eat, swim, spa since we house visitors have access to it. The pictures here do not do this home justice. We felt like we were home. We are planning to come again and again. So much nicer than a condo with people and rules on top of you.

"Almost Heaven" is the perfect description!

"Almost Heaven" is the perfect description!

After years of staying in large condos in Gulf Shores, we decided for a change of pace and contacted the owners of Almost Heaven. I was so glad that we did! Our crew consisted of 2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 teens, and 1 toddler. It was perfect for each and every one of us. The house was beautiful inside and out. There were games and puzzles in every closet. There were supplies that we may have forgotten to pack. There was a washer and dryer that we made good use of. There were beach floats and toys of all shapes and sizes. There were videos and dvds as well as satellite and saved movies on tv. There was a grill and patio furniture...just to name a few things. There was no hustle-bustle of a busy tourist area. It was like our own private get-away! Within walking distance, there was the beach club that not only had swimming and tennis areas, but activities planned for all ages every day. I never had to worry about my teens and there was plenty for my parents, my husband and me, and my youngest to do. We had so much fun grilling out every night that we never wanted to leave and go to a restaurant even though there were plenty of them nearby! Finally, the owner of Almost Heaven treated us like a good friend, even though we had never met and I will never forget her. My entire family agrees that we will only stay at Almost Heaven when we plan another vacation to the beach!

Almost Heaven? Our week was pure Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
I have found Utopia, and its name is Almost Heaven on the Beach. The location is perfect, private but convenient to everything we needed. The house is beautiful, and my eyes were constantly drawn to the southern bank of windows and the Gulf of Mexico right at my feet. My dad and my husband took over the rocker/recliners, while mom and I enjoyed long beach walks with the kids. We hunted sandcrabs at night, cooked fish and shrimp in the well appointed kitchen, and had the best night's sleep ever after long days in the sun. I started my day on the spacious front deck, lounging with a book, my coffee, and surprising dolphin shows! They did not just swim by, they would play for thirty minutes at a time right in the front "yard." When the guys wanted to watch sports, they were pleased with the flat screen in the den, and everyone had tvs in their bedrooms for those who wished to forego sports:). We ate out a few nights (DeSoto's is GREAT), and played cards, dominoes, and board games almost every night, all supplied in the house. We never used the movie library, and we brought our own books, but both of those were available as well. I have never been one to covet, but I have to say that leaving our beach house was tough. To say I am looking forward to our next visit is an understatement. I am counting the days until our next vacation at Almost Heaven on the Beach.
