Gulf Shores is the southernmost city of Alabama. It shines brightly under the subtropical sun. Its shores receive the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and it is home to dolphins and other marine life. Gulf Shores is a resort city with white sand beaches, bumper boats, a zoo (with lemurs and slots and other wonderful creatures), and a state park. You want to go where there’s plenty of space to share with everyone else, and where sea turtles can be observed in their natural habitat. Ocean fishing and cruises are also top tourist attractions in Gulf Shores. Expect hands-on encounters with nature and God’s most amazing creations. Expect happy, sunny days on the beaches as well. It would be prudent to start looking for accommodations right by the sea with the help of our list of the top beachfront Vrbo rentals in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

3. Condo in beach-side highrise building (from USD 367)

A Vrbo condo is available right now at Island Winds West. The property is on the beachfront. Step out the door and in about two minutes, you’ll be standing at the water’s edge. You can make a run for it if the sand is too hot on bare feet. The charming decor abides by a subtropical theme. You’ll find satisfaction in the fully furnished kitchen and spacious living areas. There is only one bedroom but beddings for four are guaranteed. Look forward to a good night’s sleep after high adventures in Gulf Shore’s zoo, recreational park, and wildlife refuge. Did we say the condo is located on the 8th floor? It would be awesome indeed to see the Gulf from an elevated perspective.

5. Lovely Gulf-front unit (from USD 443)

A two-bedroom condo shouldn’t be so near the beach and still at walking distance from Gulf Shore city proper destinations, but this one is. The updated Vrbo unit is ready for lease and guaranteed safe and comfortable. If you want to see the ocean and stay dry then sit on the balcony. They say you can spot a pod of dolphins from there. If you want to catch up on your sleep then take advantage of the room darkening drapes in the bedroom and dream away. A breakfast bar would bring out the Masterchef in you, and there is fitness equipment in the building, for those who have an exercise regimen to follow.

Why waste time heading for the beach when you can open the front door and crash with the waves in a couple of minutes?
