Our stay

  • 4 of 5

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

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

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

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!

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This a beautiful beach home that suited our family of 8 wonderfully. The home has a great kitchen with more than enough seating for meals. The kids loved the ability to sit outside either on one of the decks or underneath the house at the bar and eat. This home is clean and tastefully decorated and fully equipped with all the dishes and cooking supplies you will need for your family. We loved that there was a full size washer and dryer for our large family. One of our favorite things about this home is location. The lagoon off the back was shallow enough for the kids to play without worry and we could take a very short walk across the street to the beach. The beach was fairly secluded and felt like a private beach just for us. We could open the sliding glass doors off of the bedrooms at night and listen to the ocean. It was a great place to relax with our family and will be sure to make this an annual trip!!

Great beach and lagoon access

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I loved the bar underneath the house for a cool breeze on a hot day. The Lagoon and dock out back and great for sitting, fishing or jumping off of. The water is shallow enough for little ones to play of kayak around too. We will be back for sure!
