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.

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the beach. The house is quiet and spacious. Plenty of surf to swim in or ride on and the pool was nice when the surf was too rough. I would highly recommend staying here. The gated community keeps the beach relatively secluded. The dolphins put on a show the first couple of days!

Rest on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful family vacation in a truly comfortable house. It appears that the turtles are finding this stretch of beach also attractive and the young kids were busy checking the nests and reading up about them on the internet. Many walks on the beach, hunting sea-shells and chasing crabs were also interesting for both young and old. Only suggestion is that, if and when you replace the couches could you please get ones that are higher off the floor - us old guys make quite a scene trying to get up and out of the existing ones. See you again next year!

Beach great, Thompson House just ok

  • 3 of 5

problems with house on main floor were lack of cleanliness of bed linens (full of short dark animal hair) and lack of privacy. Two of 5 bedrooms fabricated from living area. To go from one side of house to other, either go through 2 bedrooms or outside via deck. We had small children with us which made it awkward. Also, pool out of service for at least 1 month, and remained closed for our entire stay.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found the layout of the house awkward. The two bedrooms and second den/kitchen are similar to a mother-in-law suite and most travelers like the additional privacy. The pool closure was due to electrical issues and repaired as quickly as possible. We ask travelers to alert us upon check in of any problems so we may address them promptly. If there was a problem with the house being clean, we would have immediately sent the cleaning service out. Thanks for your review and we hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Beautiful Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had the pleasure of vacationing in this beautiful home several times over the years. The views are amazing, the home is decorated with a relaxing beach feel and the beach is clean and quiet. We enjoyed the week with our daughter before she graduates from high school. Very relaxing week! Thank you for sharing your beach house with us!
