About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bathroom single family beach house on Little Lagoon, and Gulf of Mexico 100 yards across street. Views of Gulf from living room and views of Little Lagoon from back patio. The lagoon has 100 foot sandy beach which is safe for your children to play. There is a lighted fishing pier and we also rent our kayaks which is handy to view the lagoon. Only 5 miles away from Highway 59, close enough to great restaurants and shopping, yet you enjoy the privacy of your own lagoon beach and dock.

Charming...well appointed Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I stayed at the home the last week of July 2016 with our three teen aged children (14, 17, 19). The house is fabulously furnished. We spent every day fishing off the pier. Our best move was to rent the two kayaks for the week. The lagoon is so great - beautiful, peaceful, and full of fish - all of us used the kayaks daily to explore, fish, and take in the sunsets and sunrises. The walk to the beach is easy - many times we were the only ones on the beach in that area. The five of us worked out almost every day. We would run along Beach Boulevard and then come back to use the large space beneath the house for our weight workouts (we brought equipment with us from home); with the breeze and the shade - it was ideal. Way better than a hotel gym!! The Shrimp on the Barbie is a great family property; the owners are immediately responsive, and the location is very peaceful. We had a terrific time and hope to stay there again.

Absolutely love this place! Cannot wait to go back! The bay was so convenient for the kids and the dock was great for fishing. Will definitely be booking again.

Great place to removed from the hustle and bustle. Had beach, house and lagoon to ourselves. House had pretty much everything we needed. Would recommend a few more instructions about leaving, trash as actual different than what we were told. Great for kids who want to fish etc and for a crowd

Fun, relaxing place

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We enjoyed our stay at Shrimp on the Barbie. The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for our vacation. The views were amazing and the house is perfect, having your private beach and lagoon with kayaking and fishing in the back and near private beach access right across the street. We had everything we needed. The owners were very welcoming and available if needed. Nice breeze under the house and enjoyed the front and back decks in the evening! Perfect house for the beach, plenty of room and space for 7 of us.

Vacation on The Barbie

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our family just returned from Gulf Shores on our Family Vacation at Shrimp on the Barbie. We all had a relaxing and adventuris trip on our visit. There were 11 of us that enjoyed all that the beach has to offer. (Walking,shelling,sunning,surfing,sunsets) Our grandchildren loved the lagoon and dock. (Swimming,fishing,kayaking,shelling,hunting for clams and crabs). What a fun time for them. There was never a dull moment. Shopping, Fort Morgan, USS Alabama. Hangout Bar, Shrimp Basket, Go Carts, Water Park, just to mention a few fun activities. You will not be disappointed spending your vacation at Shrimp on the Barbie. Barb n Mark are gracious hosts and their house is equipped with all the pleasures of your own home. There is a spacious kitchen for cooking and eating in with plenty of seating for all. This was truly our home away from home. This is a quiet residential community and we enjoyed meeting and visiting with friendly neighbors on both sides of this home. We will recommend this vacation home to our friends. Thank you Barb n Mark. Smith Family from Illinois

Great House for enjoying the best of Ocean and Lagoon

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Overall, our experience at Shrimp on the Barbie was a great one. The house features a great setup for families or groups with ample space and seating, both inside and outside. The bar and picnic tables beneath the house were both great areas to hang out away from the sun but still enjoy the ocean breeze. While we were initially somewhat hesitant to stay on the lagoon as we had only stayed directly on the beach in the past, we were pleasantly surprised with the ability to enjoy the lagoon in the evening while still having relatively quick access to the beach. This is a big benefit of the house that we took advantage of all week. The house also has a very nice kitchen that is well equipped for any cooking you may do. My only, albeit small, complaint would be that while there is a grill available, it was out of propane (which we replaced at our cost) and then did not work very well (very limited heat output), so we weren't really able to take advantage of that like we'd hoped. That said, I would definitely recommend staying at Shrimp on the Barbie as it was overall a great house and provided for a great vacation in Gulf Shores!
