No added departure fees, credit card fees. You will love the location close enough to town (Route 59 is just two miles away) but away from all the hi-rises, a nice, low density area. You don't have to crawl between two big buildings to get to the beach. This as close to being on the beach as possible--at about 1/2 the price.

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Initially I was a little concerned about space for our large group as we had wanted to rent one of the 6 bd rm houses Bob owns. However, this townhome worked out nicely and the balcony was great for watching the kids in the pool. They swam in the pool every day and had a blast! There were other families staying next to us and we never would have known they were there if we didn't see them outside. The proximity to the beach and the rooms are as described and pefect. The nice washer and dryer in the unit was great, kitchen necessities, board games, etc. The wireless internet was difficult to get upstairs but was good on the main level. We had a wonderful week and bob was easy to work with and quick to answer any questions. The grounds and pool were kept clean while we were there. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as a family as well as close to restaurants and stores. I recommend The Hang Out for fun and good food! It is a little pricey but all the good restaurants in GS or OB are. The boys ages 11 and 13 enjoyed crabbing at a close by pier. Make sure to get flashlights for night sand crab hunting- always a big hit with the kids!

OK for the price

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here summer 2015. The house was clean, had plenty of kitchen items to cook with, and quiet inside even though there are neighbors on both sides. We had a good time and the beach was only a short walk. There was a spill spot on the upstairs carpet. The listing shows you share the pool with 3 units but one of those 3 is a triplex so really 5 units. Not a huge deal but not clear in the overview. Having the pool was really nice with kids. The bunk bed room looks like it could have been the master walk-in closet that was closed off so there is no window or second exit in the room if there was an emergency in the house. There is also nothing to put clothes in etc. in the bunk bed room. The kitchen/great room area was very large which fit our family so we liked that. One of the couches was broken so we couldn't really sit on it. Also the maintenance person came to shock the pool after a rain shower (we were about to get in) and left no sign the pool had been shocked. If my husband hadn't seen him the kids would have been swimming in more chemicals than I would have liked. It was also our last night there so we wished he would have waited until check out the next morning so we could have one last swim. Overall though we had a good time.

5 bedroom house across from beach

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this house several times and loved every vacation that has been spent there. House was very spacious, clean and has all the amenities we needed; kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare a meal or not, washer/dryer, bedrooms have TV's and dvd players and all were very nice. Bathrooms were very clean and well stocked with towels. Love the balconies that each bedroom has. Very impressed with parking and private storage room downstairs that made it convenient having it already stocked with beach chairs, floats and beach carts which are awesome to load up and carry your things to the beach and also private shower downstairs. Love the pool area! Has a lot of nice beach chairs for everyone to chill out and get sun. We LOVE LOVE this house and definitely have made lots of family memories. Also, we would recommend owners (2) 6 bedroom houses. LOVE them too. A Big hit with us.

Awesome location and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my son's beach wedding. It was a spacious house that roomed many of the guests that came to celebrate with us during this special time. We had more than enough room for everyone. The house had all the kitchen utensils, pans, grill, towels, beach items and plenty of space for everyone. We had a blast and could not have asked for a better house, location and weather. The house was just a short walk across the street to the beautiful beach. The house was also close to restaurants and shopping but far enough away from the activity to be quiet too. Bob (the owner) was there and was so nice to check on us several times during our stay. We will be back.

Family Vacation here was a big hit!!

  • 5 of 5

The property and furnishings were just as advertised, if not better. Perfectly clean on arrival and more spacious than anticipated from the website pictures. We had twelve family members here, which included one infant (crib was also provided). The bunk bed loft was perfect for the grandkids. Plenty of kitchen-ware plus coffee maker. Nice large clean fridge. Nice Flatscreen TV with cable in the family room. The pool was a big plus for everyone -- even though shared with next door units.. Access to the beach was excellent. It seemed like the perfect location in Gulf Shores -- close enough to convenience stores, restaurants, and the main drag, yet away from the heavier traffic. We would heartily recommend this property for your vacation consideration. The owner, Bob, was very pleasant to work with and available by phone to take care of any problems. The only negative was the long drive from Dallas!! I wish it were closer!
