Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

If you are looking for a great place to get away with your family or friends, this is it! Rest Area West is only steps from the white beaches and blue waters of the Gulf Shore, you will lose yourself in the luxury of this professionally decorated home.

Our non-smoking home is located on a quiet section of the beach and is removed from the hustle and bustle of the heavily-developed beach areas (no high-rise condos around you), but close enough to allow quick access to golf, nature trails, family activities, shopping (including Outlets), and a variety of restaurants.

With plenty of space for all guests, the living area features two full-size sofas and four comfortable chairs, with views of the gulf (or a television with DVD, if you prefer). The living space also features a wet bar with ice maker, and a conversation area with game table for your enjoyment. There is a large dining table that seats twelve and fully-equipped kitchen with two dishwashers and a double oven.

There are a total of six bedrooms to accommodate you in comfort. Two bedrooms feature king-size beds and a gulf view complete with a balcony. Two additional bedrooms are well-appointed with queen-size beds. Another bedroom includes two twin beds. There is even a bedroom with two sets of twin over full bunk beds (accommodating as many as six). The bunk room includes a TV, DVD player, and XBox (with games).

Each bedroom has an adjoining bath and the home features two 'family suites' (two bedrooms connected by a bath). The second floor features a loft with TV, VCR, and desktop PC with DSL (high-speed Internet) connection. The loft allows two additional guests to sleep on the full size futon.

Your outdoor spaces begin with our screened porch. We have a picnic table and a round table to help you enjoy your dining, card playing, and socializing in comfort. The next frontier is a private pool (only shared with our neighbor's home). The pool is surrounded by a deck with several chaise lounges to help you bask in the sun.

The only thing that stands between the pool and the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico is our dunewalk. For your convenience, we have an outdoor shower between the dunewalk and the pool. Your family can easily roam between our home, the refreshing swimming pool, the beautiful white beaches, and the clear blue gulf water.

We found a great place for our children and their friends to enjoy the beach. We have a great time in all seasons of the year.

We love to walk on the beach and sit by the pool. The kids enjoy digging in the sand and playing in the surf.

Great extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2011

This house was a dream come true for our extended family vacation. We had 10 adults, 3 teens, 4 kids and 2 infants ranging in age from 8 mos. - 75 yrs. Everyone had a blast, a comfortable place to sleep and eat. There were plenty of things close by to see and do but for the most part we all just stayed and enjoyed the amenities of the house such as the pool and the white sand beach just steps away. Every thing in the house was as shown on the ads. The only little thing was that the futon would not make out into a full size bed but it worked for us without that. We would definately recommend this to others and will consider it again if future travels bring us to that area. There were plenty of chairs by the pool and beach toys for the beach. The double oven, 2 dishwashers, 2 coffee makers and an ice machine was a lifesaver with our big family as we cooked most of our meals at the house. Justin and Susan were hospitable owners who worked hard to provide us with all information necessary to make our trip wonderful.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 24, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We were a multi-family group consisting of 10 adults, 4 teens, 3 kids and 2 infants ranging in age from 8 mos. - 70+. The space fit us all with everyone having a place to sleep comfortably. We rented baby beds from a company that the owner recommended and everything was set up when we arrived. The pool was wonderful and being steps from the white sand beach was heavenly. For our big crowd it was nice to have double ovens and two dishwashers and coffee makers. The only issue was that the futon in the loft was broken so that it wouldn't make into a full size bed but since it was only one to sleep there it really wasn't an issue. We will definately consider coming back to this wonderful house for another vacation. The amenities are displayed correctly. We went to The Track for go-kars and putt-putt golf one day to celebrate my nephews 13th birthday and we drove to Gulf Shores for the dolphine lunch cruise from Dolphins Down Under. Other than that we cooked most meals at the house and just enjoyed the pool and beach. It is less crowded and more private than the beaches in Gulf Shores. We put our canopies & chairs out the first day and left them out all week on the beach and they were never bothered. Will definately recommend this to others.

WE took our kids and grandkids for a stay at the Rest Area West. The house was so accommodating! Everyone had plenty of space, and everything was attractive and well kept. We hope to rent both sides next year and bring our extended family! Thanks, Susan and Justin!

We stayed at Rest Area West during spring break of '05 and '06 with friends. What a wonderful house in a fantastic location! Our kids loved both the pool and beach. There is plenty of room so that everyone can have their own space. We look forward to returning for our '07 vacation.

Eagle Wing's Healing Stream rented both sides of the Rest Area. The accomodations were fantastic and the 'rest' much needed. We enjoyed the view, pool and quiet atmosphere. We'd highly recommend to anyone!!

The pictures just do not tell the complete story of Rest Area West. The high quality furnishings, wood floors, comfortable beds, and many more amenities make this a unique experience. Many members of my extended family were apprehensive about a rental property at the beach; however, we are now signed up for next year. I certainly can recommend this wonderful property that exceeded this family’s expectation.

We stayed at this beautiful beach house the week of June 24, 2006. It is exactly like the pictures we received from the web site. Their were four couples and 7 teenagers that stayed at various times and the house never felt crowded.

We loved that the beach was never crowded. We would definitely stay at this beach house again!
