average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Great place and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location with easy beach and lagoon access. Property is not new but nice and clean. 3 full baths with showers was really nice and 3 beds in the kids room is convenient for kids. Not a huge unit but Very functional for a group of 7. Plenty of seating in the main den.

The beach on west beach is not as crowded. Close to fishing at lagoon pass (.3 miles). Covered gazebo on the end of the lagoon dock was nice on a rainy morning.

Would definitely recommend.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The property is just as described. Easy to get to and close to the beach. Lots of room inside. The kitchen has lots of eating utensils, pots, pans, etc. Beds were comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay here, and would gladly stay here again. Thanks!

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!
