About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you are looking for your typical beach house with yellow and pink walls, this isn't the house for you... I designed this house for sheer comfort with nice home furnishings, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a killer kitchen with glass across the entire front of the house facing the gulf! It has a cathedral wooden ceiling and beautiful wood floors. The covered front deck is 45 X 12 feet and it shows and feels new. This is one NICE house! It's perfect for two couples with kids, a family or just the two of you! The house is positioned directly in the middle of the state beach with no houses to the left or right to block your view of the gorgeous white sand and blue water.

********************************************************************

THIS HOUSE SLEEPS 8. NO MORE... IT IS A THREE BEDROOM HOUSE WITH KING IN MASTER,QUEEN IN SECOND AND BUNK BEDS IN THE THIRD BEDROOM. IT ALSO HAS A QUEEN SLEEPER SOFA IN THE LIVING ROOM.............****LOOKING FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE BIGGER AND DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH , JUST STEPS FROM THE WATER, CHECK OUT MY OTHER HOUSE ' BEACH DREAMS' #164513.

********************************************************************

A SHORT WALK ACROSS A BEACH ROAD(50FEET) SAVES YOU $$$$$$$$$$$!

' WEEKLY RENTAL IS FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY ONLY '

This home was everything and more. The windows overlooking the beach and the kitchen to die for. We found everything in place and clean. will be back.

Just ended our second stay here,, absolutely perfect. The house is wonderful, and the view is second to none. Scheduling our stay for 2017, wouldn't think of staying any place except Gumbo One!

Wonderful, gorgeous, perfect

Absolutely perfect home, breathtaking view, hated to leave, but we already booked for 2016, and are so excited to know we are going back. Owner is attentive to both home and renters, very nice to work with. Hope we will be returning for years to come. Thank you for sharing your beach house.

7 years in a row at Gumbo One!

  • 5 of 5

My family vacations at Gumbo One twice a year. The house is comfortable with everything you need. The best part is the covered porch that runs the length of the house. It has a great picnic table and rocking chairs. The view is beautiful and unobstructed. The last couple of years we've noticed some great upgrades including a larger flat screen TV in the den, new pillows and cushions for the rocking chairs, new bedding, new wifi/internet equipment, and several new kitchen items (including dishwasher and blender). We love how quiet and uncrowded this part of the neighborhood and beach is.

We wouldn't keep coming back if this house were uncomfortable and didn't provide what we need for a great week at the beach.

Great view and beach access!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, quiet getaway. We have stayed at a couple of other residences in the area, and this has been our favorite. There are some eateries that are within walking distance, and you're only a short drive from Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a cozy stay.
