Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-16)

You can also book directly on our site. Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals is abbreviated GSVacationRentals for our web address. We do have a secure payment interface. We know some of you are displeased with VRBO/Homeaway service fee.

Come enjoy your own Southern Surprise! Enjoy a private pool and great views of the Gulf of Mexico & Little Lagoon at our Gulf Shores vacation rental beach house only 200 yards from the beach. This is closer than many 'gulf front' resorts and has an elevator--a rare find among West Beach homes!

Enjoy your own custom gunite private pool. Relax in the lounge chairs and enjoy the views. We also have grills and picnic tables for your use during your stay.

Southern Surprise has lots of nice luxury touches like a huge master bath on each level, wet bars with under counter icemakers, private baths for each bedroom and more. You'll love the pillow-top mattresses and soft sheets. Wonderful porches provide great views of the Gulf to the south, and Little Lagoon to the north.

The house is divided into two three-bedroom/three bath halves, one stacked over the other, with an interior connecting stairway and an elevator. Great for togetherness or shut the doors and each feels like its own house.

Each floor of Southern Surprise has a spacious living area with wide open Gulf views and a large covered porch with a table and chairs to enjoy outdoor dining or relaxing. The beautifully equipped kitchen is open to the living area and features custom cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, adjoining lagoon-view private porch, and master bath with separate Jacuzzi tub, shower and double vanities. The second bedroom features a queen bed and private bath. The third has a pair of twins, a lagoon-view balcony and a private bath.

This laid-back section of Gulf Shores known as West Beach has 4 rows of houses from the Gulf on the south to Little Lagoon on the north but is only 2.5 miles west of Hwy 59 with its selection of restaurants, shops and attractions.

Great, family-friendly area close to Waterville USA, The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, putt-putt, and more. A major outlet mall with Coach, Gap, Ralph Lauren, Nike, Juicy Couture and more is 8 miles north in Foley.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This comment came from our first guests at Southern Surprise.



Thank you so much for letting my group stay in your home Southern Surprise. The house was amazing and the week there could not have been a better vacation for all of us. We enjoyed the service that you both provided when something went wrong with the house and could not have asked for better people to rent from. We will all be telling our family and friends about this and other homes you own and we all hope to rent from you again.



Sincerely,



Kathryn South and the Rhodes crew

Reviewer Comments:

Souther Surprise was the perfect home away from home for our two families. Each family had their own floor. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and the living area was large and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped so we were able to easily prepare meals. Having our own pool was fantastic! The beach was nearby and the house was clean and tastefully decorated. Loved, loved, loved!!!

We had a wonderful week at Southern Surprise. The house was perfect for our kids, their spouses, and 6 grandkids. Having the pool right there was a bonus. The layout of the house is perfect, plenty of space to be together or have your private time.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented both floors. We had nine adults and 5 children from 5 families stay together. The house was wonderful. The house was just like in the photos. So nice to have a bathrrom for ach bedroom as well as a powder room. We enjoyed having our own pool. Easy walk to the beach. Very easy check in process. Loved seeing the lagoon off one side of house and beach off the opposite side. Everything was clean. Well appointed units. Elevator was wonderful as I had just had a knee replacement and sometimes I just wanted to skip the stairs. The elevator was very helpful when unloading and loading cars, groceries, etc. Would definitely stay here again.
