About Sherry

The Family

Sherry purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Sherry chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We chose this vacation home because we wanted the space of a home with easy access to the pool, no elevators and lots of outdoor space. We wanted to have easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and find that even though we are across the street from the beach, the walk to the beach (about 400 steps) is actually a shorter distance than if we were in one of the highrises that advertise being right on the beach. We chose Gulf Shores because it has all the entertainment and dining options you expect in vacation destination without all the congestion, traffic and high prices.

What makes this townhome unique

We love to spend time at our beach home and we hope you will too. We have tried to include little extras that you don't find in other rentals because they make our visits more enjoyable and we share them with our guests with the hopes of making their vacation the best it can possibly be. We have a huge selections of movies, a magazine and book exchange, HBO in every room, a fully stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds. We have a babysitter that lives right next door and a new Convenience Store, Shake's Custard and Foxy's Grill right at the corner. We are always open to suggestions on thing we can do to improve and we welcome guest comments after each stay.

Summer Vacation 2009

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as it was advertised! Wonderful owner to work with, always answered any questions I had. Short walk to the beach, ice cream, and mini market. Kids loved the pool. Clean and quiet. Had a great time! Would definitely recommend to someone else!!!! Would recommend the Dophin Cruises, Gator Alley was awesome and bring a rod and reel to fish down at Perdido pass or off the beach. My husband and son parasailed. They really enjoyed it and you can't forget Lambert's, home of the thrown rolls! Oh and the Estuarium on Daulphin Island, take the Ferry at Ft. Morgan.

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, which we knew before we left that we'll be returning next year. The location of this property is great, not far from many attractions, and a short walk across the street and there is the BEACH!!! What a beach it is, white sugar sand, beautiful waters, amazing sunsets and since it's private deeded beach - not crowded at all. You have everything you need to feel right at home, and the kitchen has everything to prepare whatever you would like to make. The beds were comfortable, and it was so nice to have a washer and dryer so you don't have to take home any dirty laundry. I'd stay here again!!!

Clean and comfy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Gulf Shores. The townhome was a great fit for our family with 2 kids. The house was clean and stocked with towels and essentials.

It was great to be able to cook when we wanted or go out to eat at any of the restaurants near by. We also enjoyed the easy access to the beach across the street. We walked there daily during our stay. The pool, being just behind the property, was a great bonus!

Thank you!

Home away from home - perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the location as it pertained to the beach, local shops, restaurants, and attractions (The Track). We plan on returning to Gulf Shores and would love to rent this property again. The property and surrounding area was peaceful, the perfect accommodation to a relaxing vacation. The owner communicates kindly and rapidly, and the property manager was pleasant to speak with also. Only recommendation for improvement we can offer is fixing the air conditioner. It was very warm during the day time or if the oven was on. We spent most of the day hours on the beach, so it didn't affect us too bad. We have already recommended this property to our friends, and are trying to plan our next trip!
