About Debbie

We bought 'Forever Yours' Gulf House for a place to spend a relaxing vacation and to be able to come to relieve stress. It has absolutely lived up to our expectations! We've always come here to escape from it all and get refreshed. We've come to love our gulf house and have made so many wonderful memories here. Our hope is that other families will be able to come and relax, relieve the stress of everyday life, create their own memories, and truly enjoy a 'home away from home' experience.

Debbie purchased this house in 1989

Why Debbie chose Gulf Shores

We love to fish, and Little Lagoon is perfect for catching flounder, speckled trout, white trout, and redfish, as well as swimming, jet-skiing, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, and other water sports. We enjoy sitting on the pier, relaxing in our swing, and just enjoying the wonderful sea breezes, and warm sun's rays. Our house is located away from the crowds, and is in a quiet and peaceful location, but it's also conveniently just a few minutes from everything you might need or want to do in Gulf Shores. We love our private, friendly neighborhood, and if we want to experience the beach, we are only 4.5 miles from the gorgeous white sandy beaches of the Gulf, or only 1/2 mile across the Lagoon by boat. Also, if you love to take walks, jog, or ride bikes, there is a bike trail across the street from the neighborhood which is about 5+ miles long. Golfing is just 2 miles away at the Peninsula Golf Course.

What makes this house unique

We love being right on the water. We look forward to having our morning coffee sitting in the swing on the pier, and watching the gorgeous sunrises. At night, we look forward to sitting on the pier watching the beautiful colors of the sunset, and later the bright, countless stars in the sky,and enjoying the gentle sea breeze. There are so many fun things to do in the Lagoon, such as fishing or crabbing right off the pier, going kayaking or canoeing, swimming, jet-skiing, or boat riding. There is amazing wildlife to watch all around, including great blue herons and brown pelicans. Or sometimes, we just want to lay in the sun, taking in the warm rays, and reading a great book.You can easily walk, jog, or bike on the flat neighborhood street. Also, there's a 5 mile biking trail right across the street. If we want to leave and explore the area, it's only about 5 minutes to just about everything! Gulf Shores has the best fresh seafood restaurants around, fresh seafood stores, excellent golf courses, grocery stores, drug stores, a great zoo, Waterville USA, deep sea fishing, sightseeing, and so many other things to do! We're only about 45 minutes from Pensacola, FL, and about an hour from Mobile, AL, for visiting popular tourist attractions in those areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Forever Yours is a wonderful place to stay. The house is cozy, clean, and well-appointed. Ms. Tuggle was a very gracious host. She went above and beyond to make our stay there memorable. We really enjoyed fishing off the pier behind the house and taking our boat out into the lagoon. The neighbor was very nice and my son enjoyed fishing with him as well. The house is close enough to the main strip in Gulf Shores to get there quickly but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. I highly recommend Forever Yours! We will be back!

Wow! Prepare to be very pleased if you vacation at Forever Yours. Debbie is a warm, friendly, and very well-organized hostess, and she made us feel very much at home for our stay.

We enjoyed the lagoon pier, the easy half-mile paddle in rented kayaks to the gulf, and the impeccably clean and well-appointed house. If you like the beach but don't like the crowds and traffic, this is the place. We caught crabs most days, watched rays and lots of fish in the lagoon from the beautiful pier, and enjoyed sunsets from the deck. Nearby beaches were great for dolphin watching, sunning, and nature walks, and the teenagers were within easy drive to parasailing, go karts, and public beaches. We cooked most meals in the clean and well-appointed kitchen, and that gave us more time and money to enjoy ourselves.

This home is well-tended and a good value. Don't deprive yourself of this wonderful spot.

Amazing home! Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Forever Yours home for a week in June/July 2016. My husband and I searched for many places to stay while in Gulf Shores, but we both kept coming back to this home, and I'm so thankful we did. Debbie was so helpful before we booked, quick to answer all my questions and just as accommodating after we finalized our booking. The home was everything we hoped for...and MORE! My kids fell in love as soon as we walked in the door. The house was immaculate, so well taken care of, and fully stocked with everything needed. From towels, bedding, toilet paper, laundry detergent, to beach chairs, crab traps, and so much more! Debbie made sure we were taken care of while we were there and was accessible the whole time. She left so many helpful directions to local eateries, attractions, and the private beach access nearby....not to mention the homemade cookies and goodie bag upon our arrival! She knew the way to my family's hearts! The private dock was so much fun for our family to relax and enjoy fishing. We saw so many fish, crabs and sting rays! It was beautiful!! There was no lack of outdoor seating. Each day we chose a different place to drink our coffee and my kids loved the hammock. The private beach access down the road was so nice. It was NEVER crowded and the beach was beautiful! It was a sad day when we were packing up and leaving. My kids made us promise that we would be back, so we have to fulfill that, right?! We look forward to our next trip. Forever Yours gulf house will be forever ours!!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Forever Yours Gulf House for a week in June and had an amazing trip! From the moment we booked until after we left, Debbie was a phenomenal host. She checked in on us several times and we felt sure that if we needed ANYTHING, she was a mere phone call away. The house is very cleaned and well maintained and Debbie does not skip on any of her amenities. There were plenty of swings, seating outdoors, comfortable beds, and she even left us some welcome snacks. The house was in the perfect location too. The dock made for great nights of fishing after a day at the beach. There is a public beach close by that was no where near as crowded as the main Gulf Shores beaches. We felt like we were close to everything without being in the traffic and chaos. The neighborhood is quiet and the boat landing down the street made for easy access to the little lagoon. We highly recommend staying at Forever Yours and will for sure be back in the future!! You will not be dissapointed staying here!

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the day of booking, through the end of our stay at Forever Yours Gulf House, everything about the trip was exceptional. Debbie's thorough communication prior to and during our stay helped to cover any questions we had. The house was spotless upon our arrival and homemade cookies and snacks were provided.

We launched our kayaks from the pier very easily and fished daily in Little Lagoon. Each evening as we prepared the fish we caught while down at the pier, we were greeted by a beautiful blue heron that we decided to name "Buddy". Buddy's trust in us grew each evening as we gave him portions from the day's catch. Buddy ate well!

The kitchen is fully stocked with all items needed for preparing meals. The grill down below the house is a plus also.

All in all, we will definitely go back to Forever Yours Gulf House and I will look forward to the next trip there.

Peace and Serenity

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most wonderful time at Forever Yours! from the minute we walked in the door to homemade cookies and a selection of yummy snacks, we knew this was going to be a trip to remember. Only visiting for 4 nights, we enjoyed the views of the lagoon, walking out to the dock and relaxing on the bench swing, watching the heron and pelicans that would fly in for a visit to see if we had any fish for them (sorry, we didn't). We brought our kayaks and enjoying fishing in the lagoon, though the wind and current made it challenging, but a good time still was had. There is a wonderful pier for fishing too! Debbie was absolutely wonderful to work with. Very kind and so fun to talk to. She went above and beyond for us, checking on us to make sure all was well. They had the house ready with daily essentials to get our visit going. Plenty of towels and comfortable beds. Because we are regular visitors to Gulf Shores, this trip, for us, was about kayaking, but there is plenty to do as the main strip (Hwy 59) was only a few miles away. Close to a grocery store, bait shop, restaurants and pharmacies. A private beach was near by as well, and not crowed, unlike the main beaches in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. We had a wonderful time at this wonderful 'home away from home' and plan to return SOON!

Owner's Response: Our goal is for each and every guest to really enjoy their visit and feel that FYGH is truly a "home away from home," so it is so very rewarding to hear our visitors have had a wonderful experience. We clean up and get the house prepared for each guest with that thought in mind, and are so excited to learn when that happens!

We were a family of four looking to getaway and have luxuries nearby but still feel homey. This property far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we walked in after a long drive to Debbie's home made cookies and hand selected snacks we were in heaven. The beds/bedding were so comfortable and fresh. The boys loved fishing right off the dock. The kitchen was well stocked and nicely laid out. We also enjoyed the private beach the Tuggles directed us to. It's a short drive and there was never more than a few people on it at a time. We highly recommend this property and can't wait until we can return!

Little Lagoon is a Popular Fishing and Swimming Spot. Flounder, Speckled Trout, White Trout, Redfish, Crabs, and Mullet Are Well-Known for Being Caught Here. It's also great for kayaking, canoeing, jetskiing, sailboats, and wind sailing. The Lagoon is parallel to the Gulf of Mexico and actually feeds into it through Lagoon Pass, a fun area for fishing, swimming, and laying out in the sunshine.
