I highly recommend booking this or any other property that Ms. Kim has to offer. Everything we needed was in this home. Property was very clean and well kept. I have entrusted my vacation rental needs with Ms. Kim for over 4 years now and she has always impressed me. Also I can tell the owner of this specific property maintains its up keep to the highest standards. I will never use anyone else for my rental needs!❤

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

The family had a great time, I would recomend staying at this location. Due to weather we only had one beach day but the pool is fantastic, heated and the hot tub was super hot! The home offers everything you need, we stopped in Gulf Shores to get groceries on our way in. The Sassy Bass is just a few minutes from the house for anything you forgot or need more of (i.e. Milk, Ice, etc.). Kim was fantastic with getting us information prior and during our stay. Fun things we did due to weather:

Fishing in Little Lagoon

Fort Morgan

The Hangout

Naval Aviation Museum ( 1 Hour Drive)
