Overview

Alabama Gulf Coast Townhome Rental Photos and Description

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).

Available by the week only. Sunday to Sunday

Check-in time: 3 p.m Checkout time: 10 a.m.

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 Alabama Gulf Coast

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.

Fantastic as Always

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at this property and has become our regular spot. Perfect size for our family and the location you just can't beat. All the cookies utensils and grill downstairs makes it very easy to eat in if you like. We stayed for 2 weeks so we mixed up eating in and also hitting our favorite spots in town.

Perfect Beach Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Dreamscape is a wonderful beach house! The atmosphere/décor was so much fun! It was stocked with everything I needed especially in the Kitchen! Dreamscape is a great location! It's right on the beach and the views from the 2 decks are amazing! It's also close to all the restaurants/retail in Gulf Shores! We were able to meet Richard and he was fantastic as well! I would recommend this to all of my friends and family and hope to stay there again !

Amazing family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Dreamscape is a great house. You feel like you are visiting family/friends not just staying in a vacant house. The beach was beautiful and you couldn't ask for a better location. We saw dolphins 4 days in a row, no need for a cruise! The beach was not crowded in front of the house and we were there the week leading up to and including the 4th of July. We will definitely look at Dreamscape next time we go to Gulf Shores.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dreamscape for a week during spring break and couldn't have liked it better. The house had everything we needed and is maintained very well. It's a little bit out of town, so it is very quiet, but still a very short drive or nice walk on the beach to town. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant/bar, seafood shop, convenience store and ice cream parlor just a few houses down and across the road, so you could easily go your entire stay without having to get in your car. We've been to Gulf Shores about a dozen times and Dreamscape is definitely our favorite place to stay.

Please note that I rent by the week from Sunday to Sunday. During the summer months I will not consider partial weeks. Most other times I can be flexible within reason. 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. Please feel free to call me.
