**********************************

Location:

Sea Oats is located only 3 miles west of Highway 59 and West Beach Blvd (the Hangout). Our beaches are quiet and family friendly, in the most laid back area of Gulf Shores. Yet we are only moments away from the all the excitement Gulf Shores has to offer - including shopping, music, nightlife, amusement parks, restaurants and golf.

Property Features:

Sea Oats has everything your family needs for a relaxing beach vacation. Our complex is located on Little Lagoon and directly across from the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores. We provide your family with a beach wagon, chairs, umbrellas, even a cooler! The beach is just steps away using our dedicated boardwalk, complete with showers for rinsing off. Be sure to take advantage of our TWO Olympic sized swimming pools with plenty of deck chairs for a relaxing evening.

Sea Oats also offers a private boat launch and slips for guests, 2 fishing piers with fish cleaning stations, 2 gazebos, and a picnic area with grills. Bring your boat or watertoys!

We also offer assigned, covered parking and security for each rental unit.

Unit Features:

We offer the largest 2 bedroom, 2 bath available in Sea Oats with over 1250 square feet. Our spacious balcony has a great view of the pool - perfect for keeping an eye on the kids! Both bedrooms and the living room have direct access to the balcony - a great place to relax in the evening shade.

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, flat screen HDTV and DVD player, large closet, dressing area with vanity, and private master bath. The second bedroom contains a Queen Size bed, a twin bed, large closet, and TV/VCR/DVD. Basic cable is provided. Directly across the hallway from the second bedroom, you will find the second full bath.

In the living room, the family can unwind by watching a DVD or cable on the flat panel HDTV. There's plenty of comfortable seating and games to keep the kids busy. We just added a NEW comfy Queen sized sofa sleeper - perfect if the kids want to watch TV and eat popcorn without disturbing the grownups!

KITCHEN:

We offer a large, fully equipped kitchen designed to meet your needs. There’s a full size refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, stove and dishwasher. You'll also find a great assortment of small appliances and utensils to make cooking a breeze. Entertain friends or kick back with a cocktail and watch the sunset - you won't find an more relaxing vacation!

No need to lug beach towels and chairs! We provide everything a family of 4-6 would need for a day at the beach: beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, even a canopy!

We also provide a full-size washer and dryer in the unit for your use.

Get more for your money at Hibiscus Cove! Stretch your travel budget and enjoy more of our area attractions.

Area Attractions:

The area has amusement parks, water parks, go-karts, a family zoo, miniature golf, museums, historical sites and some of the best restaurants along the Gulf coast.

Don't miss the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola - just 30 minutes away and admission is Free!

Looking for adventure? Take a dolphin cruise, go deep sea-fishing or parasailing. Take your family to historic Fort Morgan and ride the ferry to Dauphin Island for a fun day out.

Fore! Did know there are ten signature golf courses in the local area? Calling all Shoppers - Famous Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is only a short drive and offers great selection at discount prices. Be sure to check out the Wharf, just minutes away in Orange Beach - they have live music, events, boutique shops, restaurants - not to mention the highest Ferris wheel in the South. You can also bike to town on the designated biking/walking paths in town.

Of course, you can always create your own downtime - just sink your toes in the beautiful, sugar white sand, listen to the waves and remember why you came to our little corner of paradise.

About Roy or Susan Forson

After living all over the country, we have finally made lower Alabama our home! We have lived in Maryland, Michigan, Wyoming, and Tennessee. We are avid golfers and love scuba so Gulf Shores is a great fit for us. We live nearby in a local community and are dedicated to helping you and your family have a great vacation!

Roy or Susan Forson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Roy or Susan Forson chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We spoke to many visitors to Gulf Shores and we kept hearing over and over that Sea Oats is the 'best kept secret in Gulf Shores' for family vacations! All the families we spoke to keep coming back and we certainly see why. The units are well-maintained and they have two amazing pools. The lagoon is perfect for fishing and the beach is just steps away - the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

As a mom, my favorite feature is the balcony which has a great view of the pool. I can keep an eye on the kids and enjoy a moment relaxing in the evening shade. We love that our condo is on the first floor (only one flight of steps for lugging groceries). We also have a downstairs storage unit so all the beach toys can stay out of the way until you need them - really keeps the sand away! Finally, we love how well stocked everything is. We enjoy using our condo, too, and it is great to be able to pack our clothes, shop for some groceries, and relax! We don't have to buy or bring a lot of extra items - and that is exactly the experience we want to provide to you! Going on vacation is not supposed to be a lot of work!

It was a great experience. The owners were very helpful with the whole process.

  • 5 of 5

Everything went perfect with our vacation. The owners had great communication and helped with directions and helpful hints on what to bring to the beach and what was provided at the condo...my kids had so much fun with the waves and the sand...the sand was perfect for huge sand castles and the boogie board riding was excellent. The condo was awesome...and the location of restaurants were very close. All the sea food we tried was tasty. We will defiantly keep this place in mind for our next adventure.

Great location, clean comfortable condo, easy access to beach and the lagoon.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week in July. Had different family members in and out throught the week. Everyone enjoyed their stay. The pull-out sofa was a great thing to have. Had three different people sleep on it and all said it was comfortable.

The pool was awesome. It was so hot some days that we really enjoyed just floating in the pool. We cooked out on the grills a few nights. It was a little crowded at the grill - but actually was a great place to meet people.

I traveled with my two small dogs and they did great. There where plenty of places to walk them and ample locations of waste bags and cans for them.

I would reccommend this place (actually already have). Susan was so easy to work with! Loved being in West Beach away from the hustle and bustle.

First family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing week in Gulf Shores! The condo was fantastic, they had anything you could possibly need to make your stay more comfortable and relaxing. The unit was clean and the beds where extremely comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked with anything you need to prepare meals. The pool was great, and we were very thankful to have it. Loved that this condo is out of the way from all the hustle and business of the main street. Made getting to the beach very easy! Our kids loved Alligator Alley in Summerdale and the Naval Museum in Pensacola! We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family and hope to return next year. Susan was great to work with! Thanks Susan and Roy!

Quiet family vacation - Just minutes away from the Waterpark, Miniature Golf, Shopping, Live Music, Restaurants and so much more in beautiful Gulf Shores! Directly across the street from our deeded access to sugar sand beaches! Try your hand at fishing from our pier or enjoy our private boat ramp and slips for your boat or jet skis. Watch for dolphins in Little Lagoon or take a short walk to Little Lagoon Pass - a great place to swim or fish. Cool off in one of our TWO Olympic sized swimming pools for the perfect end to a relaxing day.
