About Susan or BreAnna at Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals
Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals is a small family-owned business specializing in large beach houses. 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. We appreciate you considering a stay with us.

Why Susan or BreAnna at Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals chose Gulf Shores
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.

Great Family Place!
Our family enjoyed our stay! House was very clean and it had everything we needed! It was nice to have all the items for the beach and pool! Great place!
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you next time with preferred repeat guest rates:-)
We rented both When Pigs Fly and Dream Big for our family reunion. It was a perfect set up with a combined total of 18 rooms.
Distance to beach
Nice property and pool, but if you are a beach loving family it’s just too far to the beach. I believe the site stated the beach was about two hundred yards and although that might not sound very far, believe me trying to cross a busy street with children was dangerous and the walk with beach supplies was NOT easy!
Spend some money on updates!
Outdated, outdated, outdated...
Good location, but everything else was lacking.
The house is as pictured, except it was too early for the oleanders to be blooming. You chose it from many alternatives, maybe because it is less expensive than some of our fancier homes, but seem surprised that it is what it is. It is clean, comfortable and mid-priced for our area--with a private pool. If you want something of a different style, we hope next time you'll pick the home you really want.
Confortable for big families
excellent place, calm, relaxing, comfortable and complete kitchen appliances for the stay.
First Visit to Gulf Shores
The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Overall, it was a great experience. There were a few items in need of repair such as the upper master bath fan half hanging out of the ceiling, electrical face plate missing in the living room, and the dryer not adequately drying laundry. The biggest issue may have been nails popping up on the decking surrounding the pool, which was dangerous for the children. I'm shocked anybody would ever consider using nails instead of screws for fastening deck boards, but there were multiple areas where nails were used, and were coming up. We found a rock to pound about a half dozen of them down (only a temporary solution of course.) Aside from these smaller issues, I would still recommend 'When Pigs Fly'. Great location, more than satisfactory amenities, and a decent value overall.
We have beach chairs, beach carts and an assortment of beach/pool toys. We are 1 1/2 blocks from good fishing and about 600 feet from the beach.
