About the area

The house is located on the western most tip of Pleasure Island. Historical Fort Morgan is less than three miles away. The fort includes a wonderful public pier for fishing and crabbing. The beaches are beautiful white sand and an amazing experience. Only a short drive from the city of Gulf Shores (about 18 minutes), this property is minutes away from the zoo, the amusement parks, surf shops, souvenier shops, movie theaters and the outlet mall.

Getting around

Pleasure Island is not really set up for buses or trains, etc. You will need a vehicle to get around.

Getting here

There is room to park two vehicles under the home on concrete, and room for three more in the driveway. There is plenty of room for a 30' boat and trailer, too! A week before your arrival, you will receive a welcome e-mail from me which includes your lockbox code to the house, information about the area and my favorite restaurants and attractions. You will also receive a copy of my 'girl' directions to get to the home. During your travel time to By The Sea, I will be standing by the phone for questions whether you are lost or just need to know how much further!

Interaction with guest

I will be in contact with you personally. I live within 1 mile of By The Sea. I am available to answer questions or handle any issues that may arise during your stay. I do work outside of my rentals, and field most phone calls at night. But during your stay, I have a special alert on my phone and I will pick up immediately.

“Another GREAT Stay!”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2014

This is our second trip to "By the Sea" and loved every second! It is so cozy and convenient! We enjoyed some beautiful sunny weather from the porch and got to watch some amazing storms come thru! Being able to see the beach AND bay is quite a treat! WE WILL BE BACK!

Owner's reply: Thank you Emily! You and your family are always welcome! Kim
