Overview

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 14

NEW OWNERS! Which means, all new furnishings!

This Beach House is located directly on The Lagoon, and is completely furnished in modern style, decorated with care and love to be clean and fresh when you arrive. Snowbirds welcome. Located across the street from the beach, about 1 block.

The house has a private pool and has a nice boardwalk leading to a covered pier with 4 boat slips. The Master bedroom features a King bed, the 2nd bedroom has a Queen size bed, and the 3rd bedroom has 2 Twin beds, the 4th bedroom has a King bed and the 5th bedroom has a Queen bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher and ice maker, and all of the kitchen tools needed to cook a meal. There is a washer and dryer.

This could also be rented along with Paradise West, creating a 10 bedroom/10 bath for your group.

There are several golf courses and restaurants nearby.

Close By Activities include: Golfing at any of the 7 Premier Local Courses, Deep Sea or Inshore Fishing, Hot Air Balloon Rides, Para sailing, Wave Runner Rentals, Dauphin Island Estuary, Water Parks, Gulf Coast Zoo, Putt Putt Golf, Dinner Cruises, Shopping at the Outlet Malls and The Wharf, Various Festivals (When In Season), and Night Life. The Rookery was designed to be a natural and quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. This is a wonderful place for kids to play and swim as the large pool has an extended shallow end. A marina, boat dock, and restaurants are located nearby. Go after elusive blue marlin, yellow fin tuna, amberjack, cobia, red snapper, and more! Driving west from Gulf Shores along Fort Morgan Road brings you by scenic Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, a haven for nature lovers.

The Duplex: The arrangement of the bedrooms and five full baths easily would accommodate two couples for the winter months. Share a winter retreat and save money. The baths have standup showers and the master bath features a garden tub. The convenient kitchen features full size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and garbage disposal. Dishes and linens are provided. There is a washer and dryer in the unit. Safe parking under the duplex. Everything you need is provided except food.

Great location, poor quality

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the location of the house. Close to all the restaurants, a short walk to the beach and right on the lagoon. We were very disappointed with the condition of the house. There were stains on the carpets and walls. Lots of broken door locks. The wood on the balconies and walkway to the dock is rotted. Half the pool chairs are completely ruined. The bedding and towels were all clean when we arrived. The couches and chairs looked dirty. We were also very disappointed with the pool cleanliness. The pool was clean when we arrived but filled with leaves, sand and bugs by the 3rd day. The skimmer for the pool was broken in half so we couldn't clean it ourselves. We contacted the owner and she was quick to respond that she would send someone but no one ever showed up. The pool was unusable by the end of the week. Basically you get what you pay for. The price was good for this location but it's clear no one is putting effort into making this a great rental.

Spacious but not very clean. No ownership help.

  • 2 of 5

Property was spacious and easily held two families. Needed help and contacted the owner. No help. Sent the following email and still no response:

I am prepared to leave very negative feedback and file a complaint but wanted to give you an opportunity to offer a solution of a partial refund or additional nights at a later time as compensation. We have multiple complaints.

1. The property was not clean when we arrived. Thick sticky stuff (maybe jelly) was on the kitchen counters, the stairs had not been vacuumed and had a lot of “debris” on them, there was sand IN the king size bed…

2. You can not claim to have tv’s in rooms that you can not watch. After much frustration, the king room on floor two had a tv but it only worked on the channel that the “sitting room” was on.

3. The wifi quit working on day 3. We called; you instructed us to call the neighbor as that was where the box was; they said “not my problem”, you responded with “well I don’t know what to tell you.” The wifi was needed for multiple reasons not that we need to explain ourselves.

4. The police had to be called one night due to a party with nearly 100 people in the adjoining property. The whole house was swaying. The rest of the stay, the outdoors including the pool was unusable due to drunks laying around, pee in cups, trash everywhere.

I can continue on but think I have covered enough. Please respond quickly before I leave my feedback and take my next step.

Everything needed for vacation in one Location!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice Property! I would have given 5 stars, but for the amount of stairs. Definitely felt my age. 3 floors made it very private for everyone. Really enjoyed the pool & dock. Caught quite a few fish. Only negative was the WiFi access. Layout of rooms wasn't clear from the descriptions, but everything worked out. Lots of space for family gathering. Would definitely recommend.

We loved it! Perfect house for our group!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. While it was not located directly on the beach, it was not far from it. We loved the fact that it was kind of away from it all but still not far from everything. We had 16 in our group, and each family had our own bathroom and bedroom area. Lots of extras were available to us so we didn't have to pack them (such as 2 air mattresses, pool toys, etc...) We all had such a wonderful, relaxing time we are already planning our next visit. There were many times during the week we mentioned how happy we were with the pool. It occupied the kids during our "down time" which made everyone happy. The owner was very helpful while we were planning and answered every question we had. Would highly recommend to others!

Notes:
Pets are not allowed by home owner's renter rules. We ask that you not smoke please. You must be 25 years or older to rent this duplex. Check in time is 4:00 pm or later on the arrival date. Check out time is 10:00 am or earlier on the departure date. Early arrival or late departure times may be available. Charges may be applicable. This is a family area and it remains quiet at night. No glass in the pool area please. Children should be supervised at all times. This is a wildlife area; you could see a small alligator. We like long term renters in the winter months but prefer to rent by the week in spring and summer.
