'TUXEDO FLATS' POOL, ELEVATOR, BASKETBALL CT, EASY BEACH ACCESS

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

10 Bedrooms, 10 Baths and 2 Half Baths, Sleeps 24 in Beds and Max of 24 Gulf View, Private Heated Pool, Gourmet Kitchen, Handicapped Accessible

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

Welcome to Tuxedo Flats. As the name implies, you are about to immerse in a ‘formally informal’ vacation experience. The property is comprised of two 5-bedroom, 5.5-baths, 2250 square foot flats available as one 10-bedroom home. The beach is just across the street and the back yard is resplendent with cool, relaxing water and recreational features.

For Summer, Tuxedo Flats rents Sunday to Sunday, the rest of the year, you pick your dates.

On arrival, you will find impeccably-crafted matching homes on each floor. Decorated in what is typically described as “coastal chic” they are spacious and minimalist in concept leaving plenty of room for an ample gathering of family and friends. Luxurious 10- foot ceilings, custom moldings, high-end fixtures and electronic packages complete the setting.

Each customized island kitchen is appointed with Wood-Mode cabinetry, GE Profile appliances, granite countertops, and an elegantly carved travertine backsplash to delight both foodies and non-cooks alike. Fully equipped, with every imaginable utensil and counter-top appliance, all you need add are the groceries.

The bright Great Rooms form the main social area with a high-definition TV and DVD player. A wet bar with stand-alone ice maker and wine refrigerator awaits you in preparation for that perfect vacation libation.

Each bedroom is equipped with its own bathroom, television, and DVD player. Each level has three “master suites” with king-sized beds and private balcony access. And there is a fully handicapped equipped - specifically designed bedroom for special-needs guests or senior citizens. Each level also has a room for kids to call their own during their stay. An elevator connects all levels together with the ground floor for ease of use.

Practical appointments abound including large-capacity washers and dryers, and a wireless Internet service which enables you to stay connected to friends and family. You will also find that the garage accessible large elevator will help jump-start your holiday quickly and effortlessly.

Connecting large front and back decks enhance the beach views and lagoon features - perfect for a quiet read or afternoon cocktails. Headed to the beach? Grab a Tuxedo Flat beach cart provided for your use, and trundle 100 feet across the street and public beach access and discover the white sands and glistening emerald waters of the Gulf. Complete the day’s activity in the landscaped pool area with lounge chairs, the refreshing pool, grilling and relaxing siestas under our covered gazebo or in the hammock. For your energetic kids and teens, we have a private basketball court and shaded ping-pong table. They can hang out away from adult supervision on chaise lounges by the pool or swing in the hammock chairs in our secluded outdoor breezeway. And when the outdoor temperature turns a little brisk, turn it back with our HEATED pool!

Located just two miles west of Highway 59 on West Beach Boulevard, temptations abound with wonderful places, from great beachfront dives like West Beach Grill (walking distance along with Boudreaux’s Seafood), Bahama Bobs, Sea and Suds and The Hangout (great bands all the time) to wonderful restaurants such as Gulf Shores Seafood, Mikee’s, The Shrimp Basket and Ribs & Reds. A couple blocks further you will discover a half a dozen dining locations that are perfect for lunch or dinner. There’s a delightful waterpark with all kinds of rides and slides for, yup, kids of all ages. A little further there are go-kart tracks (try the Woody!), amusements, and several miniature golf courses that are the perfect way to spend a few hours off the beach.

There is a dolphin cruise in the area which is a fun way to see Perdido Bay and of course, dolphins, where family members of all ages would enjoy together.

The house was beautiful! Our family enjoyed our week tremendously. Access to the beach was good. Only wish we had had more days of sunshine. We definitely will be returning to Gulf Shores!

LITTLE THINGS

  • 2 of 5
Plenty of room for large multiple family vacation, Great front porch view of ocean for sunrise & sunsets. Gulf Shores itself is an excellent vacation destination on the Gulf. Friendly laid back community. Those are the positives. Amenities that someone on vacation should not have to worry about & has paid for are the reason for low score. All the little things @ this residence that did not operate properly added up. Elevator did not operate from start locked out mode upon arrival. Good thing everyone could climb stairs, WIFI was a joke. A/C systems poor central return installation (contractor) on both floors so units would not cool the kitchen, front bedrooms & living area during the heat of the day into the evening, bedrooms in rear of home cooled fine, 1st floor microwave had broken turn table pretty much useless. Two weeks for new part did not help our cause. Ice machines on both floors would not produce ice as needed on a minimal usage basis drinks only, several shower stall floors pre loaded with sand upon arrival, both 1st & 2nd floor clothes dryers operated inconsistently took forever to dry even small loads of clothing. Basketball goal bent & leaning to one side upon arrival, real downer for the kids. Biting ants through out the patio pool & porch areas. Pool is too small for a house of this size can not imagine sharing pool if 1st & 2nd floors were rented by two different families who did not know one another.

Owner's Response: We hope you'll read this review and see if you think nice house & great location with some hiccups during the stay equates to 2 out of 5. Luckily most of our guests enjoy the house and find mostly same day fixes to equate to a very good stay. We hope you will as well. If you have problems during your stay, please let us know so we can fix them. This is the first we are hearing about icemakers, AC, ants by the pool or dryer issues. The elevator was reset the same day. If you force the door to stay open, it will lock up. The wifi was reset the same day. We checked back and were told it was working fine. The ring under the microwave plate was glued since the replacement ring takes 2 weeks to arrive. So the microwave could be used the same day. We have pest control service. Food by the pool will attract ants. If you see them, we'll have the pest control service come. Yes, kids before yours hung from the rim and bent the basketball hoop. It will have to come down to fix. We did not want to take it down and leave your children without it. And yes, the pool is small so we rent the entire duplex together so you are not sharing it.

We couldn't have asked for a better stay. We had 25 people in that house and never felt like we were on top of each other. As the sponsor, my favorite thing was the beds. Sooooo comfortable. I didn't even miss my own.. Amentiies were fantastic!!! This house was worth every penny we spent!!!!!!

SOMA LADIES

  • 5 of 5
The ladies from our church came and stayed at Tuxedo Flats in 2013. We had a blast! It was perfect for our group. One of the ladies is wheel chair bound and this house worked great for her. The layout is very spacious and the decoration is beautiful! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. It was our home-away-from-home for the weekend. We are hoping to book again for this Summer!

PERFECT PLACE FOR A LARGE, MULTIGENERATIONAL FAMILY!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time & the house was perfect for our family celebration! Kudos to whomever designed the pool. The tiered levels accommodated everyone from the baby to the 87-yr-old matriarch, and, due to cool temps, the heated water made it inviting at all hours. The elevator was a blessing, as well as the bathrooms for each bedroom. Thanks for the use of the myriad of beach/pool toys & equipment, and outdoor seating options. The basketball court was a huge hit, too! You guys really have provided a great place for a large family getaway! Also, the seafood market that's nearby, S & S, is great and provides an awesome shrimp boil!
Only one thing surprised us: There are absolutely no condiments or seasonings there, not even salt & pepper, so come prepared.

SUGGESTION: The lounge chairs around the pool would really benefit from cushions. Also, the wash machines are front loaders that need to be cleaned regularly & the doors left open to dry out between uses.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed it! You'll want to bring what ever seasonings you think you may need. While we sometimes have some at the house, we've found some guests don't want anything that has been opened left there and will throw away items they believe are left by past guests. So we do not replenish them each week. You may or may not find condiments there when you arrive. We ask guests to leave the washer doors open to air, but it does not always happen so we've put a reminder to the housekeepers to check it.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
I brought my family of four along with 16 high school baseball players and our experience was fantastic! This house was perfect for what I needed...heated pool for my children, plenty of space for my players, great beach access, and all the amenities one could ever hope for. My wife and I will never look at staying in a condo or hotel the same way ever again. Staying in a beach house of this quality is definitely the way to go! Will definitely stay here again if at all possible.
