Description of the Gulf Shores vacation home rental
I would like to apologize for this site. I am not sure what has occurred lately, but I received two calls today 7/6/15, stating they had emailed me directly from the site. I did not receive either e-mail. I logged in to the site and my e-mail address is correct. I checked the records and I found 106 e-mails since 7/2/15 for one house alone that I have not received. I will be working to answer/apologize tonight and for a couple of days. If you read this and are interested in renting, please text me or call me. I work during the day and cannot speak on the phone, but can text at lunch and text/talk after work. Phone numbers are not allowed in this space, but my number is listed below my picture on the right of this page. For those who I missed their e-mails, and their vacation has come and gone, I apologize.

The calendar is current and updated each time a deposit is received.

After July 4th, I will accept reservations with no minimum number of nights required.

Please pay special attention to the rate section. The summer rates remain in effect until the afternoon of September 8th. This site includes a phase "From $85 per night". This is the fall/winter special rate, not the summer rate.

Welcome to all the comforts of home without all the stress! This home will welcome you with open arms with its cheery colors and inviting furnishing and beachy decor.

The Gulf of Mexico edis a short walk, approximately 1-1/2 blocks from the beginning of the sand. The experience is one worth having. You will want to come back again and again.

The breakfast room table seats four comfortably and there are five barstools for additional seating at the bar. The open floor plan is amazing!

There are four bedrooms including one king bed, 4 queen beds, a queen sofa sleeper and a queen air mattress. (Don't forget the hammock downstairs!)

Call or text me for details and availability or for more information. More pictures are available.
Area Information
The home is located on the western end of Pleasure Island. It is a 19 mile drive back to Highway 59, so the home is away from the hustle and the bustle of the extreme summer crowds, but close enough to get there, enjoy the sights and return to peace, serenity and the BEACH!

The historical Fort Morgan is only two miles away, while shopping, amusement parks, movie theaters, bowling, and additional restaurants are approximately 20 minutes away.

There are four restaurants withing five miles of the cottage and a convenient store. A small marina is located within one-half mile, and the fort boasts a fishing pier for great catches and crabbing.

The house was just right for our group. The girls swam right behind the house. The water is shallow, but deep enough. Good location for the dogs. Tacky Jacks and the Sassy Bass were okay. Wish we had stayed longer.

Home Away From Home

November 13, 2014

I can't say enough good things about this house. It absolutely felt like home. It is worth the drive! We traveled with another couple and never felt like we were cramped. The layout allows for communal living space and meals but private bedrooms. Our dog also enjoyed her stay. There is ample room for a large crate or two. The dog's only complaint is the prickly burrs that grow in the grass around here. But that's just part of being on the coast. I absolutely loved everything. It got cold during our stay, but the heat worked well to keep us warm. The seafood market by the Dollar General is great, too.

Thanks Virginia! You and your family are welcome any time. I struggle with sand spurs, but working on something now to get rid of them. Kim

BAYCATION is the place to VACATION! :)

June 4, 2014

My friend and I were looking for a place to stay last minute and luckily came across this cute house. and when i say last minute, i mean hours before we decided to leave. Kim was amazing at working with us and was very accommodating. We only stayed a few nights but the drive from Central AR was worth it. The bay view was beautiful and peaceful. The house is in almost its own little area that was secluded from cars and foot traffic. The sunsets were great to watch off the large deck. We brought our two small dogs and they were in heaven. It literally took a minute to drive over to the gulf side access. The dogs loved the beach and so did we. My friend grilled out one night while I relaxed in the hammock. The layout of the house is wonderful also. Very open with bedrooms on separate sides. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed when it came to utensils and cook ware. Unfortunately, we didn't get to take the kayak out. We were too lazy :) this was one of the best trips i've been on in a while. i highly recommend any of Kims houses. Thanks again, Kim!

Baycation was a great rental. All the furniture was very comfortable and equipment was as advertised We had a problem with the internet access but that was fixed with a new system as quickly as could be expected. Landlords don't have control of weather and that was our biggest problem in Jan 2014. Alabama beach houses are not designed for those conditions. The floors were cold. Kim was great and were very happy with the area.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at this lovely house. The location was great. Just a short walk to the beach. Away from all the traffic and hussle of the downtown gulf shores area. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. Would recommend to anyone.
