You'll love the PRIVATE Pool & Short Distance to the Beach at our Gulf Shores Vacation Rental beach duplex When Pigs Fly!! We are lucky to have our own pool, just for our duplex, looking south toward the Gulf. We are only 2 houses from the Gulf, about 200 yards back from the beach. We are the owners but because we now also manage neighboring homes, everything you see on VRBO classifies us 'manager'.

When Pigs Fly is a stacked duplex, one floor over the other with the same basic floor plan except that the upstairs has stairs to the Rooftop Crow's Nest with Panoramic Views of the Beach & Little Lagoon. Each half has 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths and sleeps 6-8.

Each half has:

*Spacious Living Area with French doors to a Wide Beachview Covered Porch

*Large Fully-Equipped Kitchen

*Spacious King Master Bedroom w/TV, Private Bath & French doors to a Beachview Porch

*2nd Queen Bedroom

*3rd Pair of Twins Bedroom

*Full-Size Laundry Room

*Smaller Lagoon-View Porch

*WIFI

The Upper Unit has a Jetted Tub in the Master Bath, a separate prep sink and Undercounter Ice Maker in the kitchen island and Stairs to a Rooftop Crow's Nest. There are Covered Porches on each floor for Enjoying the Wonderful Views, Gulf Breezes and Sound of the Surf. We have Covered Parking for up to 4 cars plus additional parking for a Boat Trailer or 2 more cars.

The Downstairs has Dining Space for Everyone with the Dining Table, Breakfast Bar and nearby Kitchen Table with Chairs.

Outside, around the Private Pool, there is also a Poolside Table & Chairs, Lounge Chairs, Charcoal Grill & a shaded Picnic Table under the house. You are welcome to use our assortment of Beach Chairs, Beach Carts & Pool Toys during your stay at When Pigs Fly.

Our duplex is conveniently located in the Family-Friendly West Beach area of Gulf Shores, 2.3 miles west of Hwy 59. This section of West Beach has no condos, no crowds, just 4 rows of houses between the Gulf on the South & Little Lagoon on the North and Beautiful White Sand Beaches. It is Close to Restaurants, Shopping including a Major Outlet Center, Attractions, and just a block to a Good Fishing spot.

About Susan

We are a family with 2 high school aged children. We own When Pigs Fly and several other homes here. We also manage other family-friendly vacation homes, primarily in the West Beach area of Gulf Shores. These are all homes that we are in weekly so you are either renting from the owner, or one step away from the owner.

Susan purchased this house in 2005

Why Susan chose Alabama Gulf Coast

In 2004 we discovered that OMG, Alabama had a beach--and it was a really beautiful beach. We fell in love with the sugar white beaches and family-friendly atmosphere. We liked that Gulf Shores was easier to reach than any other beach we knew of along the Gulf Coast (no 2 lane roads to get here but it is still not huge and built up!)

From the beach road we spotted the house & its big grassy pool area & porches and loved it, but couldn't really imagine that it was a possibility for us. We came up with a plan that calls for another 20 years of hard work, a lot of cooperation from Mother Nature, and the idea that other families like ours will continue to love Gulf Shores and want to come visit.

We love the West Beach area of Gulf Shores. It is low-key and very residential but you are just a couple of miles from restaurants, within 3 miles of Waterville and the Zoo, within 4 miles of several grocery stores.

What makes this house unique

Pool, pool, pool plus a nice BIG yard. Love the quiet location about 600' back from the beach, but also like have refreshing water right in the backyard. And maybe this is sacrilege, but it is really nice having a grass yard instead of sand! Our children were 3 & 5 when we bought the house and could manage the distance to the beach.

We try to have the things we like at the house for your stay, like a grill, beach cart, books, games, etc. Lots of houses don't have those sorts of things but we hope they add a little something extra to your stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Our overall experience was very good with the property. Rooms were very clean. Kitchens were very well supplied with pots, pans and dishes. When one of the air conditioners stopped working,we called the problem in and witrhin hours, a maintenance man was there to fix the problem temporarily. The unit was then replaced in a timely fashion and worked perfectly the rest of our stay. Only downside, was that the pool really needed to be cleaned several times during the week. The dip nets supplied would not remove the bugs and debris that had accumulated. We would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Gulf Shores.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family gathering at "When Pigs Fly" was simply great. We had 9 Adults and 8 kids and everyone loved it. The pool was great for both kids and adults. Being a long and narror pool made it easier to keep track of the little kids.The walk to the beach was only a few minutes and the large white sandy beach was wonderful.The house itself was in wonderful shape and the couple of times we needed something fixed or taken care of the response from management was quick and professional. We had grandparents,chidren,and grandchildren and all loved it.

5 SISTERS & OUR FAMILIES FOR THANKSGIVING VACATION

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience this vacation was for us all. We ranged from age 66 to 8 months. We traveled from Texas, Georgia & Virginia to meet up for our Family Thanksgiving Vacation. We rent a place large enough to hold us all every year, but this was the first time we rented a place that was as well stocked with everything we needed. We usually have to show up with huge pots and pans and half our kitchens from home, but this was the first time that it was all already present and ready for us to use, didn't even have to unpack our own kitchenware.

This house was in a good location and in great condition, the pool was awesome, the property manager was friendly and helpful and there was easy access to the beach.

"WHEN PIGS FLY" was just perfect for us. I hope to have the opportunity to return in the future. This is a very

beautiful home and I am so happy it was available to be shared with me and my family. I will recommend this

rental property to all my friends.
