Great location!

  • 4 of 5

You really could not ask for a nicer location on Gulf Shores. The Gulf just across the street the lagoon in your back yard and the pool just outside your door! While this is not the newest beach rental on the block it served our group of six very well. You are close enough to all the tourist spots to enjoy them but also far enough away that you feel more secluded.

We enjoyed Mikee's Seafood, LuLu's and The Hang Out. We also went to The Track, the three level go carts were a blast!

Bob the owner was very prompt in answering all of our questions before the trip. We did not have any problems with the property while we were there.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Perch was wonderful very spacious and clean. Nice decor. The location is great with the beach being close by. We enjoyed parasailing and zip lining. We ate at Steamers was great seafood. The kids really enjoyed the beach time and also spent some time in the pool. Would definitely recommend the Perch!

Gulf shores-"the Perch"

  • 5 of 5

The Perch was just as described in the listing, but the pictures don't do it justice. It felt like home! Having the pool and beach and lagoon readily available was amazing. The entire family from ages 1 to 60 enjoyed our stay! We Can't wait to go back. I emailed the owner during our stay and he was very quick to respond, I appreciate all his assistance/ hospitality! The only meal we didn't prepare ourselves was from Lambert's (home of the thrown rolls) and it was amazing too!

Amazing Stay @ The Perch at Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Perch for our family summer vacation. Being able to wake up and walk across the street to the beach was one of many perks for this condo! We also enjoyed the fact that it was just minutes down the street from the main touristy area, but far enough away that traffic was not an issue when trying to cross the street to the beach. 3 bathrooms helped with the 7 people staying there! And I have to let you know that the one minor issue we did have was efficiently taken care of with a quick phone call. We plan on going back next summer!

wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Gulf Shores. The perch helped by like being at home for the kids. The only downside was the water pressure took forever to fill up jacuzzi. By the time it filled the water was cold.
