Perfect Beach Front Property (5 out of 5 Stars)!



Review Submitted: June 12, 2009 Date of Stay: June 2009 From: Satisfied Customer, Tuscaloosa AL(copied verbatim from another online guest book)

I would highly reccommend this property to any large group desiring a beachfront rental with a private pool! Our extended family had plenty of room and thoroughly enjoyed the week. The bunk room is perfect for teenagers and young adults or even a family with young children. The upstairs master with private deck was perfect for older parents who loved the view without the sand! The pool was clean and the pool service checked the pool twice during our visit. The property is very well decorated and equipped. We had more than enough supplies in the kitchen. We even entertained friends for dinner during our stay. The outside storage room is full of beach toys, floats, chairs and umbrellas. Waters Edge is located close to a fabulous seafood market and convenience store making trips to the grocery less frequent! The location is also in the residential part of West Beach making the beach area directly in front of the house somewhat private and certainly not overcrowded. The owner is very gracious and helpful during the renting process and was accessible to answer questions and provide additional information."

Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

My extended family had such a wonderful experience staying at WatersEdge. The home itself was wonderful...relaxing and calm, while at the same time happy and vibrant. The space was good for our crew, and it was well supplied with everything we needed. Life was certainly both easy and enjoyable during our stay.

I sat on one of the decks every morning with coffee and watched the dolphins. I saw more of them from my chair than I have seen on some dolphin cruises I have been on! It was truly a joy.

The kids in our family loved the freedom of being right on the beach. They quickly established a circuit which repeated throughout each carefree day: beach, ocean, pool...repeat. This made life great for us all.

It was wonderful to have our meals together at the large table. We played games there as well some of the evenings. The picnic table and porch swing under the house offered an outdoor dining alternative, as well as a shady spot for my reading during the day.

The home is perfectly located. If you want to visit a local restaurant, shop, or grocery, you are a very short drive away....one can even a walk to a couple of spots. There is a fresh seafood market a short walk away. If you prefer to catch your own (or at least have fun trying), the boat launch for the bay behind this home is but 1/4 mi away. It offers a great place to fish from the bank, or take in the birds & other wildlife. A local rental spot was dropping off kayaks for another group while we were there. We spotted hermit crabs right off the bank, which thrilled the children! I highly recommend a stop here. Another spot for fishing, or "walking the plank" as our family's young pirate aficionado called it... is the nearby Gulf Shores Pier. It is a short drive up the beach and offers a great novel outing opportunity. The strong breeze kept us comfortable the afternoon we went. It you are more adventurous, there are all sorts of things to do nearby. One thing I noticed, in particular, was a fun-looking zip-line course. Alas, one has to leave something for next time....and we will be back! Perhaps some of our group will explore some of the adventure opportunities offered. I will once again stakeout my serene spot on the deck or beach and luxuriate in that!

We could not ask for a better experience in this property, or with the owner.

Thank you Mary Martha for sharing your special oasis with us!

Family Beach Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Watersedge for a week and are still basking in the glow of our relaxing time together. We have stayed many other places in the Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan area, but my family enjoyed this home in particular for several reasons: the location is perfect..not too far from any access to restaurants and fun, but also the home itself is the most comfortable! The kitchen is the most well-stocked we have ever seen, the beds are dreamy comfortable, the access to the beach, though in an area one might assume to be crowded was very uniquely quiet and private (partially due to off season) and the 16x32 pool is a gem! The owner is one of the most easy-going, welcoming people and her instructions and ease of rental were all timely and accurate! Three vehicles can be accommodated in the covered area without any concern. The beach toys, umbrella, water chairs, boogie boards and floats are so numerous, we needed nothing...There are plenty of pool loungers, chairs and accommodations are kid friendly with games for those times our grandsons just wanted to chill. Our neighbors were the best and there was no noise between the two homes even with stairs and adjoining balconies. The bathrooms are strategically placed for easy access, and she has the thickest, most absorbent towels, plentifully arranged! The upstairs large bedrooms are quiet and extremely comfortable. Several naps were enjoyed by our early risers! We have beautiful memories, beautiful pictures and saw some beautiful sunrises directly from our balconies. We saw dolphins swim by a couple of times and enjoyed watching the occasional jogger, beach combers, walkers, small children and paddle boarders go by. I would HIGHLY recommend this property and we are grateful for the relaxing and fully stocked accommodations this property afforded our family! Oh and a nice surprise was the NFL channel for our football lovers in the family! Great times...thank you MMM...your place is a BIG HIT!

Wonderful Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Watersedge from Aug 9-Aug 16. Everything was exactly as the description and pictures said it would be and then some! The kitchen was fully stocked, the rooms were very spacious and comfortable for our group of 5 adults and 6 kids, and the pool was a wonderful amenity. We absolutely loved having our own beach space and not have to fight for beach real estate at 6:00 am which has been our experience in the past when staying at a high rise condo scenario. The best descision we made during our stay was to rent kayaks from a local company for the week. Every morning we would go out in the kayaks around 10:00 am and just wait for them to swim by and kayak with them. There were times we were as close as 5-8 ft away from a pod of dolphins. This was such an incredible experience and the highlight of our trip. We also saw huge sea turtles when we were our in the kayaks. We snorkeled and found starfish and sand dollars right up the beach from the house. I would highly recommend watersedge to anyone for a great family vacation. It was a pleasure to work with the owner who was extremely helpful and always very quick to respond with any questions that came up.

The perfect Gulf Shores family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 plus my parents, in-laws, and sister-in-law and her family of 5 visited Gulf Shores in June and stayed at WatersEdge. It was our dream vacation and perfect in every way! It met all of our requirements: beautiful and easy beach access, private pool, and plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy our time together as well as spread out a little. Our entourage totaled 8 adults and 6 children from 5-11. The house was perfect and exceeded our needs. It was beautifully decorated and the location couldn't be beat! The house is very near amenities such as dining, sight-seeing and attractions, but far enough away from the high rises and crowds. It was everything we had hoped it would be and the rental process was easy and smooth. Thanks Mary Martha and WatersEdge for making our family vacation as fun and as comfortable as possible!

Such a wonderful home for our extended family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family from Arkansas visited Gulf Shores for Spring Break and stayed in this home. We were very impressed with every detail. Water's Edge is right on the beach and was PLENTY large enough for all of us. We had 6 adults and 8 children of all ages and this place was the perfect accommodation. There was even room at the table and bar for us to eat meals together with everyone sitting down. The rooms are tastefully decorated and it looked freshly painted. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned and well maintained. The bedrooms had large beds and the bunk room was great for the kids! The home is a duplex and we were staying in only one side of it. The attached gated pool is for the duplex only. it was beautiful and the kids enjoyed having the beach and the pool to play in. There were neat water toys, chairs, etc. provided and a grill as well. This home is in a great location, not far from all the restaurants, etc. and was exactly what we were looking for.

Great time spent at the beach for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a fantastic week at WatersEdge. It is a nice place to be able to call home while in Gulf Shores. The pictures just do not do this place justice. We thought it was much prettier than what you see online. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! All seven days were nothing but sunshine and beautiful skies. There were 12 people in our party (10 adults and twin boys, age 4). The kitchen was stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes, glasses, and utensils. The storage shed was loaded with more than enough beach/pool amenities; chairs, goggles, toys, etc. We tried our hand at fishing and watched dolphin swim by while walking on the beach. We enjoyed our time sightseeing, saw the Blue Angels practice, walked around Fort Morgan, shopping, go kart riding, and of course great restaurants are everywhere. The house had ample supply of brochures to help with making choices for our daily activities. We happened to be there the weekend of the annual Mullet Toss at the FloraBama -- this was a unique adventure! We had such a great time and we plan to come back again next year. It is definitely worth a return trip and we hope it can become a yearly tradition.
