Why Colleen chose Gulf Shores

I love the quiet, seclusion of this great area that is away from the crowds. The nicest people live in this area and always welcome 'company'.

Well worth it

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house for a week with several friends. It is part of a duplex which is not specifically mentioned but we had no noise problems. Ample sleeping space but the two futons are set up in the teo large closets mainly for kids. Kitchen was a little tight when there are more than two people. It is a bit of a drive to Gulf Shores but there is a smaller beach crowd. The deck space is large enough for several people and looks out over the beach. The master has it's own small private deck also. For the most part everything was clean but you will track sand into the main living space. The shared upstairs bathroom has two spearate sinks/toilets joined to the bath/shower. The master bath is quite large with a jacuzzi tub and large shower. Overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely consider rented this house again.

Family vacation

  • 3 of 5

The house was commodius; bedrooms, living space, and bathrooms as described. However, on check in, we were disappointed to find that the house had not been well cleaned: all bathroom mirrors were dirty; dirt on the stairway to second floor; food on the floor near couches; a very dirty ottoman cover; sticky placemats. Beds were comfortable; plenty of towels; nice porch off main room. We lost some food in the refrigerator because the door had a tricky closure which we did not figure out right away; rubber around the door should be replaced. Kitchen island is in a funny location; rather big for a small room. Walk to the beach was just a few minutes and the children also enjoyed using the pool.

We were disappointed to find cigarette butts left on the floors of both outside porches; the house itself is non-smoking.

I have to say I would not return to this property or location; it is too far away from Gulf Shores itself.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and immediately settled into this spacious, clean home. There were three families with varied ages of children (9 mo to 16 yrs), and plenty of room to house everyone. We loved the large kitchen table, where we enjoyed most meals of our stay. We cooked several meals at the house and the stocked kitchen easily accomodated all of our meal prep needs. The living area was more than generous with two large areas and lots of versatile seating. The king and queen beds were all clean and comfortable, there were even a few futons with proper bedding to accomodate any kind of sleeping arrangement one might need. The beach was a very easy walk, even with 5 small children, sand toys, towels, etc. The pool was even closer, just a few houses away as well. We experienced NO oil in the water or on the beaches. There was nearby bike path which we enjoyed, a ferry to Dauphin Island, and entertainment and conveniences were an easy drive down Ft Morgan.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope we get the chance to come back next year!
