Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay in this home was great. The view from the deck is beautiful. We were able to fish, crab, and swim in the lagoon. We brought our paddle boat and used it daily. The beach is very close. I would recommend this home to any family looking for a relaxing vacation.

OUR FAVORITE VACATION HOME!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome vacation at Blue Bayou Home this year. The weather was perfect, the house was lovely as always and so well cared for by the managers. Larry, thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of this beautiful home. We took 2 boats with us this year, the guys got to enjoy doing some deep sea fishing, they had a great time and caught some really nice fish. We enjoyed the water, boating, the kayaks, and the pool was great for all to enjoy. Orange Beach is a wonderful place to vacation, we enjoy our time there so much.
Bill and Susan, thank you again for another wonderful vacation and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. You both make our time there so pleasant and your beautiful home is so relaxing, we enjoy spending time there and everyone in our family enjoys this lovely home so much.
Thank you both again, we wish you well and send our blessings.
See you again next year!!!!!!

AWESOME VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My whole family stayed 9 adults and 8 kids there was plenty of room for everybody! We enjoyed playing in the pool in the evenings and taking the kayaks out on the Bayou. It was a very homey feel with all the items that you can use made our vacation even better. The elevator was very nice for packing our stuff to the upstairs and for somebody with bad knees it helped my mom not have to go up and down the stairs. If we were ever in the area again we would defiantly stay again!

PERFECT FAMILY GET TOGETHER!

  • 5 of 5
My family from across the country gathered at Blue Bayou to celebrate my mom's 75th Birthday. We had a wonderful time! The house is large enough to spread out if you want and has several seating areas to gather together in. The kitchen is huge which allowed several of us to be in there at once while cooking. The bedrooms were comfortable and not overly crowded. We enjoyed the puzzles and games provided. The kids loved the ping pong table, video games, and kayaks. With 3 bathrooms we never felt rushed or crowded when getting ready to go out. The deck and dock areas are nice and at least a couple of us took advantage of the sun chairs and hammock. We could not have chosen a better place! WE LOVE BLUE BAYOU! We will have the memories made there forever.

Owner's Response: We are so happy for you and your family! What a special way to celebrate your Mom's 75th birthday. She must have been so thrilled to be surrounded by so many who love her. We really appreciate your great review and your compliments. We strive to make ALL of our guests as happy.

OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 used this venue the week bridging the 2013/1014 New Year. It was an outstanding fit for us. We have three children (two with their own families) and including three grandchildren 3 and under...so space to spread out when it got too chilly to be outside was very important. Blue Bayou is a large property with lots of space. We loved the large table for 10 that allowed us all to gather for meals. It is close enough to the Gulf that my son kayaked to it one morning. The boat slips at the dock/party shack handled the rented pontoon boat nicely. Taking the boat to eat at nearby restaurants was really neat. The pool was heated and comfortable. The ping pong table, games, etc. made the chilly days fun. The little ones found hours of enjoyment playing with a bowl of seashells (Bill and Susan think of everything.j) The maintenance man for the property lives next door and is readily available to assist with whatever. He is the kind of neighbor anyone would like to have. The party shack is awesome. We grilled out and found it also to be a great place to smoke cigars if you are so inclined. We caught a couple of crabs in the crab trap and boiled them up and the little ones had fun with this experience. Bill and Susan could not have been nicer/easier to deal with. They were ever-ready with recommendations for fun things to do/places to go and to be available by cell for anything. Finding a venue for our family, that is now scattered from Atlanta to India, to gather was really important and Blue Bayou delivered. Thank you Bill and Susan for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Despite the unseasonably cold weather we are so happy that you had a great week! When our kids were growing up we made an annual pilgrimage to the Gulf. Then when the kids moved off to all corners of the country we too looked for a way to bring everyone together at least once a year. This is when we decided to purchase a home in Orange Beach, not only for our reunions, but to share with other families and friends looking for a place to come together and make important memories. Thanks for the great review and we hope you will return to Blue Bayou soon!

COMO RESIDENT

  • 5 of 5
Awesome!!!


What a fabulous place to stay with friends in the beautiful Gulf Coast area. The house is large and beautifully decorated. It has all the amenities you could possibly want in a rental home. Location on the canal is "primo" . We rented a Pontoon boat for 2 days and were able to keep it in one of the slips at the house.
One of our favorite things was being able to get up in the morning and have coffee down on the dock where we could do some fishing and bird watching...heavenly!
Also, nice to have the pool right there in front.
Can't say enough about this place, will definitely return. Would love to bring the extended family next time.

Owner's Response: Wow! We really appreciate your wonderful review and we are thrilled you had such a great week. Early morning coffee by the bayou is really a special time and it's so much fun to watch the fish jump and anticipate a visit from Harry the Heron. We're glad our guests enjoy the pool especially since it can now be heated during the chilly months. Check your calendar and plan next year's trip as our weeks are getting booked up! Thanks again and remember...life's always better on the bayou!

FABULOUS AUGUST 2013

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Blue Bayou. The house was beautiful...exactly what was presented in the pictures. We spent numerous hours relaxing outside by the pool and in the pool. The entire time was fun for all of us. I would definitely recommend this home for family reunions or group vacations. Plenty of rooms and lots to do!

Owner's Response: You traveled a long way for your Orange Beach visit and we are so happy that it was all you anticipated! There is so much to do in the area if you love an on-the-go vacation and yet Blue Bayou is in a quiet location if you just want to relax and be away from the crowded condo scene. Thanks for your great review and we hope you will return to Orange Beach and be our guests at Blue Bayou!

Map

Nearest Airport
32 Miles
Pensacola Florida
Car: necessary

32 miles west of Pensacola Florida Airport.

One of the greatest assets about Orange Beach is that everything you need to make your vacation memorable is 'just around the corner'! We named our waterfront home 'Blue Bayou' because it overlooks the bayou and is only minutes by boat to the Gulf of Mexico. It's tucked away in a peaceful family neighborhood and away from the noisy tourist packed high rises. Cotton Bayou Beach, Alabama Point Beach and Orange Beach as well as the Cotton Bayou Boat Ramp, Zeke's Landing Marina and Bear Point Marina are all within 5-10 minutes away. There are also many miles of protected water and bays to explore with small boats, pontoons, or the 2 provided kayaks, complete with paddles and life jackets. Enjoy adventures leading to white sandy beach islands, perfect for shelling and swimming.

Grocery and convenience stores such as Publix are very close, also within 5 minutes and the outstanding Tanger Outlet mall is a thirty-minute trip by car. There are all types of shopping, family activities, movies, and live concerts at the Wharf complex just 10 minutes down the road. The towns of Foley and Gulf Shores offer additional nearby family entertainment and shopping experiences with outstanding bars and restaurants in all directions.

You may want to venture further to explore Pensacola, a 45 minute drive along the pretty coast. There you can visit the National Naval Aviation Museum or watch the exciting United States Navy’s Blue Angels practice overhead. Why not visit historical Fort Morgan which features artillery batteries, a museum, picnic area, bird sanctuary and fishing pier and is about 30 miles west and at the mouth of Mobile Bay.

We think you'll find that Orange Beach is the best-kept secret along the shores of the Gulf. From the beautiful white sand, swaying palms and gorgeous ocean waters, to plenty of restaurants serving delectable seafood and icy drink concoctions, to limitless choices of fun activities and the serenity of a more casual lifestyle, Orange Beach promises to be your favorite vacation destination...and 'Blue Bayou' your favorite vacation home away from home....and remember...Life's always Better on the Bayou!
