Good Place for Mixed Use Large Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The covered pier provides comfortable fishing, boating and playing (and the cutoff is just down the road). The pretty pool was well kept and in direct view from 3 balconies. The common areas were ample with good individual room privacy if desired. The boardwalk eliminated sand encroachment. We also rented the adjacent unit making a huge area with bathrooms everywhere. The scrub oaks and dunes next door was nice nature feature. The house was clean, bedding great, and the hostess saw that our needs were met. We brought inflatable kayaks, RC boats, and fishing gear.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This home was a great getaway for our large group. It is a duplex so we had to share the pool and dock, but our vacation neighbors were great. The beach is just a 5 minute walk. There were two two towels in each bathroom, had to wash them more than expected because we had a large group, but it wasn’t a huge hassle. We ran out of toilet paper and trash bags but the owner brought us some more. Nice home and owners! Recommend.

It was nice

  • 4 of 5

We had three families (total of 12 people). This place fit us all. Location was not a far walk to beach and close to everything in Gulf Shores. Everything worked well in house.

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.
