Great get beach get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4 adults, 3 kids) had a wonderful spring break at Sea Bell! It was a great combination of private beach feel but close enough to shops and entertainment to get out easily. The kids loved the pool and beach access, and being able to explore the beach on their own while we could still see them. The outdoor shower is great! We parents enjoyed the easy beach access, quiet and family oriented beach feel, upper deck, and set up of the house too. The house was clean and pretty well maintained... the local cleaner/ maintenance group was quick & polite to respond to a few small needs we had. We met a few neighbors who were lovely and fun to talk to.

The nearby lagoon provided a short bike ride or walking destination for easy fishing and kayaking. Grab a pole and wade into the water for a low-stress fish or rent a kayak and set off.

Our big commercial experiences were lunching at Lulu's off Rt 59 and Hang 10 just down the street. Both have sand activities and off beat fun... Hang 10 does a foam spray every hour during the day. Kids loved that and playing fooze ball tourneys. There's a kitchy mini golf course and a TCBY shop on Rt 59, which provided a few hours of fun too.

We bought local Shrimp and Mud Bugs at several seafood stores - you can't beat the flavor and freshness. We went to R&R, Billy's, and Blaylock's for seafood - all were excellent. I got the sense most of the local seafood purveyors are good and reliable. A nearby Walmart and local grocery store provided our basic food needs. The husbands were the chefs all week and found they had plenty of choice to make their impressive meals.

We got the sense that college spring breakers took their in the weeks just before we arrived, but that might be unavoidable in that location and time frame. This was very minor - some cooking materials were damaged or missing, the washer had a lot of sand in it, and the loungers near the pool had cracked seats, but these were very minor issues which were easy to fix or ignore. I'd definitely rent sea bell again, even after spring break, because the house was clean and had everything one needs to enjoy a great week away from normal life!! Thanks to the cleaning crew and Kate for helping our families create a much needed get away!!

Great accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well laid out. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything you would need. With 8 adults and a 3 year old, this was a nice sized house. Short walk to the beach from the back deck (where we spent most of our time) and loved having the pool for the days the tide was a bit rough. Short drive to the all the shops. We would stay here again!

Beach House was wonderful for family!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful! Incredible location being right on the beach with incredible view from bedroom upstairs!

The owners have thought of everything you could need to make your stay perfect! As a mother, I loved that the pool was gated and that there was a high chair and portable crib at the house!

The patio area was also gated which gave me peace of mind knowing my little ones couldn't run ahead of me.

The house was comfortable and very clean!

I can't wait to go back next year!

Incredible vacation !

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing in Gulf shores with my family, annually, since 1994. I always love it and can't wait for the next year to get back. Sometimes the houses that I have stayed in have been very nice and other times they have turned out to fall a bit short of how they were represented. Without a doubt, I can say that Sea Bell was even better than I imagined ! The pictures that are on the site are good but they really do not give it full justice. Rarely can you walk into a rental property and immediately feel like it is home.....with Sea Bell we felt that way !

The house had lots of room...which was important as there were 4 adults and 5 kids ranging from 7 to 15. The property was very clean and it was obvious that maintenance issues are taken care of in a timely manner. Heck, it was even decorated tastefully as well as comfortably. Having a kitchen that is nicely supplied with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, while seemingly an obvious essential, was such a wonderful surprise ! The pool is a great feature as well since the kids sometimes need a break from the beach (It's a rough life when you need a break from the ocean !! LOL).

Thanks for providing such a great vacation home for us to enjoy !!

Wonderful Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay! The place was very clean and neat when we arrived and the temperature inside stayed cool and comfortable even with the intense heat outside. Lots of things in the unit to use as far as kitchen and cleaning supplies in case you had forgot to pack. When we did call for service once they were prompt and efficient. We would definitely recommend to family and friends!

West Beach in Gulf Shores has gorgeous beaches and is a quiet and safe place for your family. Once you've stayed in West Beach you will never won't to stay anywhere else. Great restaurants are just a few miles away. An ice cream shop, seafood take-out and convenience store are within walking distance of Sea Bell.
