Why Debbie Thompson chose Gulf Shores

We love the beach and we love vacationing with friends. So in 1995, we designed a home that would accommodate our family and friends. Laguna Key is the perfect gathering place for family and friends. The living area, den, kitchen, and dining are situated on the second level which provides magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico. Decks abound on all levels of the house, providing shaded and sunny areas to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Uncrowded pristine beaches, the wildlife preserve, Little Lagoon and space for a leisurely walk or bike ride, make our home the perfect getaway. A neighborhood pool and tennis court provide alternatives to the beach. Great fishing from the pier on Little Lagoon. Get in tune with nature in the National Wildlife Preserve.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent the most wonderful weekend in your home last week. We all soaked up the art and discussed it all week. We agreed that it inspired and moved us. It is such a wonderful family reunion home and we thank you for sharing it with us! I loved the one on the landing between the stairs that has the written words on the white frame and the one that says "Done" next to the kitchen counter. They are all so vivid in my mind and felt like they were characters sharing our vacation with us.

Beautiful right on the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us, as some of the family could not get off work. We had plenty of room with some of the bunk beds not used. The property was beautiful and well cared for. Beautiful kitchen, lovely view of the beach, and two decks. The main problem we had was internet service came and went. It was not to many using the service, it happened when only one person was using it. If you ask if we would go back again, YES, we would!!!!

Great house, great view

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice, very nice view of the gulf from the house and deck. Everything was clean and we overall loved the house and location. It was nice to be down the beach a bit away from the big condo places. Be aware of the bedroom set-up. The second level is the main living room and kitchen with a master bedroom. The first level has the other 5 bedrooms but to get to the living room and kitchen you have to walk thru 2 bedrooms or walk outside on the deck to the patio door. While this worked for us it may not for you. Beds are hard, as you'd expect, and the patio furniture is in much need of help or replacement. The couches are new in the main living room and they are very nice and comfy. As with any house rental there are no linens(one kitchen towel) and no paper products supplied (one roll of toilet paper per bathroom) so bring your own, we knew this, just saying this for the benefit of review readers!

Perfect House for our family and friends

  • 5 of 5

If you want a picture perfect view, 30 sec walk on your private boardwalk (with shower) until your feet are in the white sands, privacy, enjoy watching dolphins swim in the ocean while cooking breakfast in the kitchen, relaxing on multiple decks with the ocean in your backyard, a beautiful home with lots of space then this is the house for you!!! We had thirteen people stay at this house ages 9,10,15,16,18, 21,25 and 6 "older" adults.

We never felt cramped and the kids loved their own private space. House is very well decorated and maintained.

The only thing I would recommend you bring for your trip is a couple of extra towels to throw on the floor for after showers and a couple of hand towels for the kitchen and bathrooms (they do provide a kitchen hand towel but it's nice to have more.) You bring your own towels for this home. I just wished I would have packed a couple

of extra towels for the kitchen and to use for the floor after showers. Other than towels, your beach stuff and chairs that's all you will need.

Highly Recommend this house!!! We will rent again!!!

Not Very Clean

  • 3 of 5

When we walked in on April 12 2017 we were disappointed in the cleanliness of the home.

Bedrooms weren't dusted, drawers had crumbs in them. The living room floor had looked liked it wasn't swept very well. (lots of particles under the furniture) We ended up cleaning the phone, blender, container for the silverware, garbage can. Many of the chairs on the porches were partial broken. Even a door handle broke off an entry of a door. Definitely not up to our expectations!

The location of the Home was amazing. Loved the view from the living room and the beach was great. Their washer and dryers worked great as well as the dish washer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of our vacation home. You are right to be disappointed, there is no excuse for a dirty house. We ask our guest to inform the property manager of any complaints, issues or concern once they get to the house and unpack. We would have gladly sent housekeeping back to re-clean. Glad to hear you enjoyed the beach and your spring break. Hope you will consider staying with us in the future. Debbie Thompson Owner
