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.
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.

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.
