Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

We have everything you come to Gulf Shores to enjoy. We're sharing our comfortable, livable three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home fully equipped throughout. The setting is perfect, right on our own stretch of private beach. Busy enough to enjoy people watching, but not so crowded that you can't do whatever activities you want. We're the east half of a duplex, so neighbors are close enough to make friends, yet with all the privacy you need.

Our house is a comfortable size for 8 or 10 and we have a pet, so call us about hosting yours. We keep our prices reasonable and hope you will respond by taking good care of our property.

We've owned our beach house for 20 years and the same people come back and rent from us year after year. We want you, too, to feel that this is your beach house for the week you've chosen for your vacation. Give us a call so we can make that special week be yours!

About Terry Cossette

We live in Rolla, MO, a 13 hour drive to Gulf Shores. Our kids have grown up vacationing at the beach and we spend five or six weeks a year here. It's a wonderful place to vacation and we've never had anyone who was unhappy renting from us.

Terry Cossette purchased this house in 1990

Why Terry Cossette chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Like so many families with young kids, we thought how perfect it would be to have a place on the beach to vacation each year. We like being in the middle of West Beach Blvd., close enough to the grocery store and restaurants and far enough away from the high rise condos.

What makes this house unique

We love being able to step our our front door onto the beach. No waiting for elevators when the kids have to use the bathroom! And, it's just fun to have projects to tinker with. Some of our renters even do repairs for us! We love it that they, too, consider it their home.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

This is so much like being home except for the white wet stuff. Just beautiful white sands at our feet. The house has everything you could need. Close to stores and shopping. Beautiful deck with a swing to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. Owners are the nicest people also. Highly recommend

So nice we are doing it twice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here May 2014. The family is easy to work with and very accommodating. The location of the house is great. Steps from the water. Everything you need is here. Away from the busy condos and close enough to town. We are staying here again this summer for two weeks. Can't wait to get back.

Comfy & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We love this beach house! Just steps from the beach and plenty of privacy. Home is clean, cute and had everything we needed for a week. Owners are very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend this house to anyone seeking a great time in Gulf Shores with convenience of being home away from home.

Most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are very friendly and accommodating! One of the best vacations we have had at Gulf Shores, and we own a condo there! Loved the easy, very short walk onto the beach with the kids and not having to take our stuff off the beach each day only to haul it back the next... way more relaxing this trip than all others! And Fall is definitely the best time of year to go. We couldn't have asked for better weather. It really was a perfect place to vacation and now we will be hoping our condo isn't available our next trip to Gulf Shores so we have an excuse to come back to this beach house!

Gulf Shores is a wonderful place for a family beach vacation and our home is perfect for casual accomodations. You can walk out the front door to our private beach. Close to town, groceries and restaurants but far enough away from the high rise condos to avoid the crowds.
