Amazing home! Fabulous location! Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in Gulf Shores for the past 6 years, and this was the best stay by far!! The owner was extremely gracious, and the property was perfect. We loved that the location was on the beach, and how uncrowded it was- even during Spring Break!! The house itself was clean and spacious, and had everything our two families needed! Two master bedrooms, great kitchen, large deck, and plenty of bathrooms gave us all the room we needed for the 10 of us to spread out. Thank you Tony for an amazing vacation- and we can't wIt to come back!!

Great Family Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two children and their spouses, and four of our teen-aged/twenty-something grandchildren had a wonderful week in this nice beach house. Tony was easy to work with, so the business end of things progressed smoothly; the on-site managers were easy to reach and helpful when we had trouble getting the TVs set up; and the house itself was perfect for us. We absolutely loved being right on the beach, able to hear the surf from inside the house and walk directly onto the beach without a long walk to get there. Although the house is directly behind another house, that doesn't interfere much with the sense of being beachfront; we all enjoyed sitting on the porch and balconies and watching the water and sand activities. This house is as pictured, was well-stocked with necessities, and was perfect for our use. The bed are all noisy, but comfortable, and that did not become the problem we first thought it might. As a family of teachers, public school administrators, and students, the solitude, quiet, and comfort of this house was just what we needed for Spring Break.

Beautiful View and Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is by far, the best house we have stayed in, in this area. This is the perfect location. On the beach, beautiful views, quick to get in the water.. House is beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The home is located close to food, shopping and quick stops if you need something in a hurry. This was our best vacation yet, down here in this area. We will absolutely be back next year if not sooner. We plan to bring our parents back and sibling for a family beach trip. Best.House.Ever. And the owner is fantastic to work with and quick to respond. Couldn't be happier with this rental!! Look no further... this is the house to rent! Oh.. and the bottom level has a grill and picnic tables and a hose/shower to wash the sand off. SO HANDY!!

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay. The house is everything it says it is and more. All we had to bring was out food the rest was there. Kids had a great time on the beach which is just steps away from the house. End of the street so not traffic to worry about. Excellent location. Would recommend to anyone. Will stay at this place again hopefully next year.

Beach House Rental -- Ship Watch North

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property from 12/22/2010 until 12/30/2010. The facitity and its location was great. The listing description was on the mark for its description of location, layout and amenities. The property was clean and very well maintained and the provision of amenities was excellent. We really enjoyed the beach although it was a bit too cool for swimming. The restaurants we visited in Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan -- King Neptune and Tacky Jack's -- had excellent seafood and the staffs were very friendly. Overall it was a super visit and I would highly recommend it to friends and relatives!
