Thus checking out vacation rentals by the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama becomes a necessity when you prefer staying at a homestay. Most prefer lodgings that are within walking distance to the beach. Many tourists prefer the white sandy beaches by the Gulf Shores. A strip of land by the coast, Alabamans and Floridians alike have enjoyed this side of Alabama just close to the Florida border. Regardless of where you’re coming from, you must take a look at this list of top vacation rentals in Gulf Shores, Alabama that would provide a respite for the night or two.

1. A rental right in the heart of Gulf Shores (from USD 119)

This unit has been frequented by tourists for being right in the heart of the Gulf Shores. Practically within walking distance from the beach, other transients enjoyed strolling around since the shopping destinations and food joints are also just a few steps away. There are bistros and other watering holes nearby that can keep the barflies preoccupied through the night. After spending the night out trying the royal red shrimps and the oysters served in the nearby restaurants (those dishes go well with a few bottles of beer), having your nightcap spent in this unit is the best way to end the day. Just make sure the parties stay outside the unit.
