About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (sleeps 6), With Jetted Tub - NO PETS

Our Gulf-front home is the jewel of West Beach! Step from the living room deck directly onto the soft white beach of Gulf Shores – no need to cross the street to get to the water! Two spacious outdoor decks face the beach: the living room deck provides partial shade and easy direct access to the beach. The upstairs deck offers panoramic views of the beach - watch dolphins swim by and brown pelicans fly so close you feel like you can reach out and touch them. Sorry, no pets allowed.

This three bedroom two bath home was owner occupied for many years, and pride of ownership is reflected in the beautiful furnishings, linens, and artwork throughout. The light filled living room features a flat-screen 41” plasma HD TV with DVD player, as well as a Bose Wave music system with multi-CD changer and IPod docking station. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the property.

The master bedroom features a beautiful King bed with a fantastic armoire, as well as a flat screen HD TV and Bose Wave music system with CD player and IPod docking station. Large upper deck with table and chairs off the master bedroom. The master bath has a separate ceramic tile shower and jetted Jacuzzi tub. Bedrooms two and three feature Queen beds, and each includes a flat screen HD TV. The downstairs bedroom features french doors that open onto a balcony. The second bathroom features a large ceramic tile shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots/pans and beach-inspired dinnerware. The kitchen window features hand-crafted stained glass designed just for our home. A table that seats six is located just off the kitchen. Another outdoor table that seats six is located just underneath the house, for shady, breezy, al fresco dining.

Don’t feel like cooking? Enjoy the many great restaurants nearby, from ultra-casual barefoot beach-side cafes within walking or biking distance of our home (Bahama Bob’s is our favorite), to fusion-inspired settings sure to please the most discerning palette (Villagio Grille at The Wharf is our favorite for upscale dining).

About Richard Weaver

Our family lived on this property for many years. It is filled with our unique collection of Gulf Coast artwork and pottery. This home has been in our family since it was originally built in 1983. We have loved it and it has loved us back.

Richard Weaver purchased this townhome in 1983

Why Richard Weaver chose Gulf Shores

West Beach in Gulf Shores offers the best of both worlds: pristine white beaches and emerald-green waters without the clutter of wall-to-wall condominiums and the over-crowded beaches that generally accompany condominium-based beaches. There are many restaurants in the area serving up local seafood in a variety of settings: from ultra-casual barefoot beach-side cafes (Bahama Bob's is our one of our favorites) to fusion-inspired setting choose to please the discerning palate (Villagio Grille tops our list).

Be sure to check out annual festivals less than two miles from the house: The Hangout Music Festival in May is not to be missed (Paul Simon was the headline act 2 years ago) and the Shrimp Festival in October is all about Good Eats, arts and crafts. Bring your bikes and use the bike path located directly in front of our house to casually pedal down to the festivals on Pleasure Island. That says it all!

What makes this townhome unique

You step from the deck directly onto the white sands of Gulf Shores - no need to cross the street to get to the water! The upstairs deck offers panoramic views of the beach and the water, not to mention the clouds and stars. Watch dolphins swim by and brown pelicans fly so close that you feel like you can reach out and touch them. Buy a salt-water fishing license from Wal-Mart where they also have any other equipment you might need, including frozen bait (Sand fleas work great, as do ghost shrimp if you know how to get them), and catch your dinner of redfish, pompano, whiting, mullet, and flounder to name a few.

From the 1st contact with Richard until we walked out the door to come home after our stay, the experience was awesome! Our entire family, adults and small children, loved the house and location. It was well maintained and absolutely lovely. It was great to be able to just walk out to the beach and not have to wait for for elevators and then to have room to move on the beach! We hope and are planning to visit again next year!

Lovely beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our son and daughter-in-law and young grandchildren enjoyed our second stay at Dreamscape. The decor is so charming. There is plenty of room for our family and best of all, you step off the deck right onto the sand! The view from the upper and lower deck is spectacular! It is the perfect beach house! We will definitely return here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. It was good to meet you and your family. It's rare that I am down in Gulf Shores when my renters are - but nice to be able to put a face with a voice. You are always welcome back. --Richard

Historically May, September, & October are months when I am also likely to fill whole weeks. They are prime time at the beach. The other months allow me the freedom to negotiate.
