MUST SEE INSIDE! 'MAR TORTUGA' GORGEOUS BEACHFRONT HOME

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT BY WIRE TRANSFER.

Amazing Beachfront home with 4 large bedrooms, 4.5 baths and lots of extras that will make you want to never leave! Mar Tortuga is a wonderful custom home with space to graciously enjoy time with your family amid comfortable furnishings and luxury touches.

It is a cliche but true, pictures don't do it justice. You really do have to see it to believe it. We drove by Mar Tortuga for several years and didn't really give it a second look but the moment we walked inside, our jaws dropped! Actually we only got as far as the covered area underneath with the mural and swings and the best sea oats providing a magical pathway to the beach and we knew--this is a really special place.

Mar Tortuga means Sea Turtle--most years, including 2010, Sea Turtles nest in the dunes in front of the house. If you come in October, you just might see their first journey to the sea.

There is a Large Main Floor Open Living Area with 2 Seating Areas; a Dining Table for 10, plus a Breakfast Bar and a Game Table for more Dining Space; a Beautifully Stocked Kitchen, plus a Wet Bar, Undercounter Ice Maker, and Large Pantry; and Spacious Beachfront Porches, both covered and open to the sun. Relax on the Lounge Chairs with a cool beverage or step right down to the beach.

There is also an Oversized Main Floor King Master complete with a chaise, a futon (for families with small children this is wonderful), and a Deluxe Bath featuring a Separate Shower, Jacuzzi Tub, Double Vanities, Dressing Table and lovely custom tile work. The smaller of the 2 Laundries is on this floor.

The Top Floor features a wonderful OWNER'S SUITE with a large King Bedroom with Private Beachfront Porch; a Desk area with Computer & a Wet Bar with Undercounter Refrigerator; a Huge Master Bath with Separate Tub and Shower, Two Vanities and beautiful finishes. There are 2 More Large Bedrooms: A Queen Bedroom, and a Bedroom with a Queen Bed plus a Daybed and Trundle, each with a Private Bath and a TV. The Very Large primary Laundry Room is on this level.

Great porches offer Amazing Views of Gulf Shores Sugar White Sand Beaches. This Quiet Area of West Beach has a single row of beachfront homes, plus a single row of homes on Little Lagoon. It is a wonderful, quiet area of the beach but it is less than 4.5 miles from the heart of Gulf Shores.

About Susan

We are a professional couple with college-age children. We previously had a smaller, simpler home here that was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan. When we rebuilt, we added lots of luxurious touches that we enjoy when we come. With the children busy with their own interests, we find we spend less time here and decided we'd like to have someone enjoying this magical house! We hope your family will create the same kind of special memories at Mar Tortuga that we have over the years.

Our friends Susan & Geoff who live in Gulf Shores and have their own vacation rental beach houses take care of it for us. We know how much they care about making sure our home is clean & well-maintained for our guests, and for our family.

Susan purchased this house in 2008

Reviewer Comments:
This house is wonderful. Our entire family spent the week. Three adult children and five <br/>grandchildren. Plenty of room. Beautifully decorated. Spotlessly clean!! Ice maker was not working when we arrived on Sunday. I called the manager. He returned my call while<br/>I was leaving a message. Sent someone to look<br/>at it on Monday. Installed a new one on Thursday. (Its not like we were without ice. The fridge has an ice maker as well.) They were very professional and very eager to please. This will be our new vacation spot. In fact, we are already working on a date for<br/>next summer! I truly don't know of anything that could have made it better.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Mar Tortuga. This home is beautifully decorated, and is equipped with everything that we needed. We especially enjoy having a bathroom in every bedroom! And walking out the back door onto the beach is so convenient! We'll be back next summer!

Reviewer Comments:
This house was very spacious and excellent accomedations. Great location right on the beach. Mostly beach houses in the area away from big condos so the beach was not crowded at all. Only downfall was air conditioner went out our last night at the house and there was no response from management that night and the house was very uncomfortable the last night. Also the house could have had a few more towels with it.

Owner's Response: If you've read many of our reviews, you know this one is unusual. While here, you have a cell phone number to reach us day or night. Usually a ringing phone will wake us but if you haven't heard back within 15 minutes, please call us again. We usually are able to get an AC repair person out, even at midnight, but they cannot always fix it before the next day depending on the parts needed. It helps if you'll call us about problems when you first notice them. The earlier we can call a repair person, the faster they can begin work on your issue.
