GREAT OAKS - BEACH COTTAGE LIVING ON LITTLE LAGOON

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 w/queen sleeper sofa

Great Oaks is a charming 3 bedroom/3 bath beach cottage located on the north shore of the Little Lagoon (original settlement area of Gulf Shores) completely remodeled in 2007 with open floor plan with water views.

Fully appointed in bright beach colors with tile throughout for a memorable beach experience with 3 separate bedrooms and baths - 2 master suites with comfortable king beds - wake up to beautiful sunrise over the water from 2 bedrooms. Located just 5 miles west of Hwy 59 on Hwy 180 West (Fort Morgan Hwy).

House is ground level - easily accessible with only two steps to enter - no stairs to climb making it attractive to folks of all ages. Great for family vacations and reunions. Little Lagoon access is available just out your door offering shallow water for children, swimming, fishing and other water sports. Or enjoy the cool breezes from the Gulf on the sundeck or in the swing under the live oak trees.

Secluded but Close to Attractions: Located within Gulf Shores city limits in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds yet near restaurants, shopping, churches, several golf courses and public beaches. Just across the street is a five-mile walking/bike path into Gulf Shores. The quiet neighborhood is conducive for quiet vacation and family time. You may chose to use the fully stocked kitchen and gas BQ grill for creating wonderful seafood meals from the local seafood market only a mile away. Experience the historical Gulf Shores while relaxing under the live oak trees - thus - our name - GREAT OAKS.

Covered parking available for two small or one large vehicle with additional off street parking with cart provided for loading and unloading.

Nature and Golf: The Fort Morgan peninsula is filled with local flavor and offers unique access Mobile Bay, Little Lagoon and the white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico (just four miles from the house). A public boat launch is just three miles away. The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge offers pristine Gulf beaches, wonderful hiking trail, and birdwatching opportunities.

History buffs will enjoy the ruins and museum at Ft. Morgan and her sister, Ft. Gaines, which is a ferry's ride across Mobile Bay to Daughlin Island. Several golf courses are within a few miles - The Peninsula Golf Club is located just across the street and features 18 holes, a pro shop and restaurant. You'll find 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend - just 10 minutes.

Not Interested in Beach Every day?: Gulf Shores is conventiently located between Mobile, AL (home of first Mardi Gras) and Pensacola, FL, home of the Blue Angels. Mobile is easily accessible via the Dauphin Island Ferry just 17 miles west on Hwy 180. Penscola is only 45 miles east along the scenic AL and FL Gulf coastline. One-day excursions easy to either for change of pace.

Shop over 120 brand name outlets at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley - something for everyone just 10 miles north on Hwy 59.

CHARMING!

This home is so charming and the perfect spot for our girl's get away weekend. The living space was so tastefully decorated and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting the Gulf Shores area.

ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!

  • 5 of 5
Once a year my husband, myself, and our kiddos join our best friends and their kids for a double family vacation. This year it was beach time again and we wanted a shorter drive than Destin was for us. We fell in love with the Gulf shores Area and the house was everything I expected and MORE! We were very pleased with this sweet little treasure of a home. 8 nights was not long enough.:)

CHARMING HOME

Our family stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and had the best time. The house is filled with charming detail throughout! Open plan through dining, living, and porch area provided plenty of entertaining space. Great views of the water, day and night, from just about every room. Will definitely be back!
