A family-friendly unit by the Lighthouse, this is one vacation home that families staying by the Gulf Shores look forward to staying for the weekend. Credit goes to its kid-friendly amenities like indoor pools where the kids may stay while waiting for their parents before going to the beach itself. The anticipation is understandable since this unit has beachfront views. The same view can be seen from the hot tubs found right by the boardwalks that lead to the beach itself. Whether you’re killing time by the hot tub or by the indoor gym, the ocean is just within view for you to watch the sunset.

One big spacious unit for your family alone. Best enjoyed in the privacy of this two-story townhouse. A non-smoking vacation rental right on the beach itself, it is a unit worth staying for as many as seven nights. So when a weekend getaway gets stretched to a week-long getaway, chances are you would prefer to be in a townhouse dubbed by the owner himself as “a true low-density complex”. The beach is so close that the closest things to have for obstacles are seagulls. Otherwise, you can stroll right from the townhouse straight to the beach.

While weather around Gulf Shore is good for most of the year, check-in times around late winter and early spring are highly advisable. Not too cold. Not too warm either. And you end up spending more time by the beach because the sun is not as scorching as it is hot. Kids of all ages enjoy staying here since it is a unit found on the fourth floor of a condominium building. So getting to the beach is done in no time. It can accommodate a party of six with convertible beds ready to accommodate a couple of additional guests just in case last-minute changes occur.
Great weather before rates increase. Come see all the improvements taken place.333 W Beach Blvd #411
This is one unit that most tourists, new to the Gulf Shores discovered just before the HangOut and Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Found right on West Beach Blvd, in one of the most recognizable condo buildings in the area, it has become a landmark used by locals and transients alike when going to the souvenir shops, seafood restaurants, and shopping destinations. Booking a night or two here outside the peak season of the aforementioned festival is a breeze. This means you get more time to stroll around and try the other restaurants that you may have missed from the first time you attended the shrimp festival. The best dinners include baked oysters topped with cream and Parmesan cheese.
