Overview

Alligator Point House Rental Photos and Description

BRAND NEW Beach House with POOL!!! 7 bedrooms / 4 baths

Beach 2 Bay is Alligator Point’s newest luxury vacation home! Beach 2 Bay has the same owners as Ship 2 Shore and M’Ocean Granted, and we are extremely proud of the newest addition to our portfolio of chic beach casual beach homes.

The only vacation rental on Alligator Point with a private, in-ground swimming pool!!

Top 10 Reasons to Choose Beach 2 Bay:

* Location Location Location - West End Beaches are Superior

* Only vacation home with Private Swimming Pool

* Closest Public access is far to the east. West End beaches are uncrowded, quiet and feel private

* Elevator services all floors

* Beach level Bathroom

* 2 Outdoor Showers have hot/cold water

* 300' Private Dock to Fish/Crab from. Makes it effortless to load and unload your boat

* Anchor your boat in the bay- no need to launch daily.

* Boardwalk to the beach keeps feet safe

* 68' x 15' covered and screened porch - a necessity for long days at the beach

Beach 2 Bay is a brand new, spectacular beach house! It sits directly on the white sandy gulf beach. Expansive water views from every room in the home, including all of the 7 bedrooms. Located in the exclusive section of The Point where the Gulf of Mexico meets the bay, this is one of the few homes privileged to have the pristine sand beaches of the gulf in the backyard and the crystal blue waters of the bay in the front yard. We own both the 100' on the Gulf of Mexico and 100' on the Bay.

This brand new home was decorated with an eye to creating a casual seaside atmosphere. Perfect for any occasion, this extra-special, beach house boasts 7 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, spacious indoor and outdoor living areas, and breathtaking views of the gulf and bay from every room.

Did I mention the swimming pool?? It's 25 x 12 with a sports bottom - for fair play pool volleyball :) For those coming in the colder months - it is also heated.

4 sets of french doors open to the gulf, immaculate wood floors throughout.

Hotel quality linens and down pillows on every bed. Not a detail was overlooked.

It's a very special place.....

Our 4.500sf home lays out as follows:

Upstairs:

Master bedroom en suite - captains quarters has a king bed, private bath, french doors which open to the gulf porch with unimaginable gulf frontage and windows with views of the bay. Fall asleep listening to the waves lapping on the beach.

2nd master bedroom en suite - admirals quarters has a king bed, french doors which open to the frontage view and also windows with views of the bay.

Lieutenants quarters has a king bed. It is bay front with amazing views of the harbor.

Skippers quarters has a queen bed. It is also bay front with views of the gulf.

Mermaids quarters has triple bunks, full over full over full. It is bay front with amazing views of the both the gulf and the bay.

Pirates quarters has a triple bunk which are twin over twin over twin.

Ensigns suite is another bunk room with a triple bunk, twin over twin over twin

Living room has overstuffed down filled furniture, complimented with beach and seashore themed decorations. Despite the upscale quality of the furnishings and artwork - our home has conquered the challenge of retaining the coveted 'beach house' feel. Very inviting, casual and extremely comfortable.

The dining room can easily accommodate 11 people. The kitchen bar seats 2, and there is a dining/game table which seats 4. As most meals are served family style, on the gulf porch, there are brand new patio tables which seat 18 comfortably.

The kitchen has everything, pans of every dimension, crab/lobster pots, roasting pans, poultry racks, crock pots, blenders, warming trays, all hand tools and a Keurig espresso/cappuccino maker.

On the bay side of the house, we have a large covered porch (20'x22'). Comfortable patio furniture makes this the perfect spot for gazing at the harbor.

The gulf porch is covered and screened, it is 68' x 12'. casual patio furniture and everyone's favorite.... the 2 person hammock.

Just off the gulf porch is what we call the 'Sunset Deck'. Some call it the 'Sun Bathing Porch', and my kid's call it the 'Dolphin Watching Porch'. My favorite place to watch the stars at night.

Pods of dolphin swim by at least 2 times per day - and occasionally you will find them swimming around the dock.

Beach level has yet another outdoor covered patio, with 2 outdoor showers and both a propane grill and charcoal grill.

The swimming pool is spacious with a sports bottom, so swimmers of various heights can enjoy a game of pool volleyball.

What key features make our beach house stand out among the others??????

Guests may fish/crab from the 300’ private dock or tie your boat off to the anchor buoy located adjacent to the dock.

Elevator - I learned this lesson when I rented my first beach house. I spent hours lugging suitcases, groceries, coolers, baggage, parents and kids up 2 flights of stairs! With an elevator, just load 'em all in the elevator and press UP!

Boardwalk to beach - many beach houses just have a beaten path over the dunes, which can be difficult. We have a wide boardwalk directly to the sand - keeping bare feet safe all the way to the beach.

Covered porches - expansive covered porches on both watersides of our home make for a comfortable reprise from the sun.

If you're looking for the 'home away from home' vacation, and you want it to be simple and carefree- our home is for you.

Beach towels and hair dryers in each bathroom

Rent includes many of the basic necessities that you'll just need a few of - but cost a fortune and take time to shop for, such as: Paper towels, bathroom tissue, laundry and cleaning products, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, garbage bags, baggies, flour/sugar/salt/pepper and spices, etc.

This is Home Away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year booking Beach 2 Bay and everything was perfect again! Our families travel from KC and New Orleans to meet for our annual beach vacation, and this is the ultimate home away from home. Private pool and essentially private beach right out the front door. The home is very spacious and well kept. Linda (owner) is very responsive and takes good care of her renters. House is stocked with cooking supplies and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. 70' porch (yes 70 feet - expands entire length of house facing the ocean!) with sun deck and very nice private pool with showers. Pool and beach toys available with chairs and umbrella for the beach. Elevator is a huge help for carrying luggage and groceries. Covered parking and on-site gas grill. Very quiet area with little traffic. Very relaxing vacation and you certainly won't be disappointed. Beach2Bay is the place 2 stay! Cheers!

Owner's Response: Mike - I love that phrase "Beach 2 Bay is the Place 2 Stay"!! I will be using that!;) See you guys next year. Pick your week early, as I've done some advertising, and the word is getting around that Ship 2 Shore (288199) and Beach 2 Bay are the only beach houses on Alligator Point with swimming pools. All my best!

Relax In Style!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you just get it right!! Beach 2 Bay was the perfect house for our Spring Break. Our group consisted of four families... eight adults and eight teenagers. We were looking for a place to get away with our soon-to-be college-bound high-school seniors, to an isolated location different from the usual and crowded Watercolor and Seaside resorts up the road in Walton County.

There is plenty of room here! We were comfortable all the way around - while we slept, when we ate together at the large kitchen table and when we gathered on the porch, by the pool or on the beach. Many options... take a nap in the hammock, walk three miles down the beach, fish on the beach or in the bay!

There is not a lot of activity in the immediate area (which is GREAT!!) but just about 10 minutes away across the bridge in Panacea, there are several good restaurants and bars, a great liquor/beer store (Two Blondes Liquor) and a "get anything you need for fishing" store called Crum's Mini Mall.

The house is stocked with all of the essentials (paper towels, toilet paper, cookware, etc.) and also games and pool toys.

Finally, Linda (the owner) could not have been better. She answered our many calls and questions about the house, restaurants, boat rental, etc. She really knew the area and sincerely wanted us to have a GREAT time. And we did!

Perfect Multi-Generational Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Beach 2 Bay was a wonderful rental choice for our family! We looked for a home that could accommodate extended family ranging ages 16-80. Perfect. We were together to celebrate an 80th birthday and could not have asked for better surroundings. Beach 2 Bay is sparkling clean with a beautiful pool. We comfortably swam when the air temperature was in the 50s. The pool deck is well supplied with lounge chairs, tables and chairs. There is a chest of beach/water toys and several beach chairs for use on the sand. There is ample parking for vehicles under the house. We very much appreciated the elevator! There is one bedroom with 3 twins, a TV and a half bath downstairs. The teen boys really liked that room and the poolside hammock. Upstairs, the bedrooms are very comfortable. The master suites both open to the screened front porch giving breath-taking views of the Gulf. The upstairs great room and kitchen are larger than they appear in the pictures. The thoughtful arrangement of comfortable seating, tables and bar was perfect. The kitchen was big enough to easily accommodate 4 people working at the same time. We definitely had all the pans, tools, large bowls and tableware that we needed! (And we celebrated Christmas, birthday and New Years together.) I appreciated that there was dishwasher soap, laundry soap, hand soap, paper towels, etc already stocked at the house when we arrived. Because we were there in the winter, we utilized the gas fireplace. We were surprised how nicely it warmed the great room.

....Porches...WOW. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the covered, screened and uncovered porches! They were my favorite part of the house. I heard multiple adults in our group praise the porches and the abundance of comfortable furniture on them. Several reviews mention dolphins-we definitely saw them multiple times/daily.

The owner-Linda was helpful and prompt in answering questions before and after our arrival. Definitely take her advice re:local seafood! She was pleasant and very accommodating. Thank You, Linda!

A five star rating for Beach 2 Bay? Definitely!

Family

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was perfect for our large, extended family. This place really felt like a home. We had family ranging from ages 7-70 and everyone was comfortable and happy. We really appreciated the elevator, beach toys, stocked kitchen supplies, and the large kitchen table. The teens in the family were very happy with all of the USB ports and outlets for charging devices. Thankfully, the place was so beautiful, the electronics were put down in favor of exploring the beach and bay! We enjoyed and used the bay dock access more than we thought we would. The beach was quiet and private and filled with large, beautiful shells. This was the perfect place to spend time together as a family. Some of our best memories were from everyone sitting on the large screened porch just laughing and talking. There was comfortable seating all around the rental that made family time so easy. Our family would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thorough review and kind comments. With the gulf as the main attraction, the bay and dock often are overlooked. I love to sit at the end of the dock at summer sunsets. Thanks for taking such good care of my new home. Come back soon!

Good times!

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful. Everything you need for the week is there. My family is BIG on cooking and the kitchen dining area is perfect for large families. While we' re on that subject, the PORCH is fabulous. You can never set foot on the beach if you don't want to, but you can have a full beach experience just by sitting outside on the marvelous porch. And clean! The house itself is immaculate. My husband does not like the beach and had a great experience at this house. Our family rented a boat and fished in the mornings, beached afterward, and then spent time in the pool. Bring flashlights for night walks as the sand crabs make it a lively experience for the kids! It was so nice NOT to be distracted by shirt shops and honky-tonk. I HATE to give a great review because I want Beach 2 Bay to be a well kept secret!
