Overview

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Fenced back yard with a downstairs patio for BBQ and relaxing in the evenings. The back is arranged so that you can open the door, and let 'em out in the mornings without leaving your bedroom! Back arranged so your 'darlings' can have plenty of shade.

Get up and have your coffee inside, on the front deck, or downstairs with your pets. Then, take just a few steps (careful crossing the street) to the beautiful white sand beaches for an early walk or dip in the Gulf. I would recommend waiting until the evening before taking your pets for a swim - then leash them & keep them under control. There is a shower downstairs where you can wash off the sand and salt before you go back inside. Don't forget to rinse off the animals! Sand & salt in their fur can cause itching.

Use the full kitchen to fix your meals, or choose one of the many fine restaurants in the area. If you like Pizza, they can deliver in a short while.

About William F. Tompkins, III

I am a Texan with burnt orange blood, but I discovered Gulf Shores many years ago (I was at the University of Texas), when our group took a few days off after one of the Texas/ Alabama Games. I have been coming to Gulf Shores, off and on, for many years - the only beach in Texas that comes close is on South Padre Island, and that is VERY pricey! Now I am retired, and can spend more quality time here with my kids, grandkids, and all the dogs.

William F. Tompkins, III purchased this house in 2009

Why William F. Tompkins, III chose Gulf Shores

I have been coming to Gulf Shores, off and on, ever since I discovered it in the 60's. I am now retired, and chose to put my investment in this wonderful property. My kids and grandkids will be able to enjoy it, long after I am gone.

It's a long trip from Cibolo, Texas (700 miles), but we Texans are used to long distances. Heck, we'll drive 100 miles for lunch! When we get here we always know that the hours of sitting in the car were well worth it. Now, we can stroll and/or swim at one of the most beautiful, clean beaches in the USA.

My kids and grandkids enjoy para-sailing, and I'll go out in the boat with them, but I won't go up! I enjoy being out on a sight-seeing boat, viewing the Gulf bottom and the sea life, there. The Dolphins are wonderfil! There is a great theme park in Gulf Shores where Willie Nelson has been. The youngsters enjoy the rides, like the big Ferris Wheel. Don't miss the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Sailaway Charters gives up-close tours of creatures that inhabit Longs Bayou and Wolf Bay. The Orange Beach Art Center offers a chance to make your own glass in its glass-blowing classes.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy sipping my coffee on the front deck while the sun is coming up. I'm happy that my pets are fenced, so they don't go 'exploring.' And, I am glad that there is plenty of shade for them when that summer sun gets hot. In the evening, I love the patio area where we can BBQ and sip on our favorite beverages.

The two sides are connected with an interior door, so that when a larger than usual group stays, they can open the doors and pass back and forth without going outside.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a spring break rental which allows dogs and this house was perfect. The fenced area includes under the house so there is always shade. The house was very clean and surprisingly large. The location was great. Not too close to the high-rises and not too far away from everything. My wife said this is our spring break destination from now on. That sounds good to me!

Close, Comfortable, Cool, Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We have always vacationed either in Gulf Shores or Florida having been raised in Mobile. This was our first vacation in 4 years and we had an awesome time. The home is very nice and we really appreciate the backyard for our 4 legged kids! We will definately schedule a return trip for next summer and have already recommended to lots of friends and other family members.

Much needed R&R

  • 4 of 5

A week long stay and an overdue vacation. We loved the quiet location - walk across the street to the beach, but drive to dining out, shopping, etc. We cooked in some, ate out some and enjoyed everyday. Enjoyed the seafood at The Oyster House the most - we are picky. King Neptune's had the best seafood gumbo though.

Great spot to bring your fuzzy babies

  • 5 of 5

This house was in great shape and in a perfect location. Our dogs had the BEST time! We walked all around the area and no other condo had the awesome yard that this one does. We were able to rinse our dogs off and leave them safely outside for them to dry before bringing them in. I would definitely rent this house again!
