'VERANDA' SPECTACULAR, UPSCALE, GULF FRONT, HEATED POOL, ELEVATOR, HANDICAP ACC.

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday home in Gulf Shores - Veranda

10 Bedrooms - King And Queen, 10 Full Bathrooms, 2 Half Bathrooms, Sleeps 26+

The Veranda is a large, beautifully designed and decorated, upscale home created with weddings, family gatherings, retreats, and other larger groups in mind.

The spacious, 100 foot gulf front lot was chosen for its uncrowded location and panoramic view of the turquoise Gulf.

Thanks to the design team, including a nationally renowned architect, it is a beautiful house, inside and out, with a local flavor: shaded veranda on the street side, 'haint' blue porch ceiling, oak flooring, Alabama marble in the powder rooms, and regional artwork.

The casually elegant design seeks to blend with the beach, not compete with it: natural hues, accents of blues and greens, and comfortable sofas and chairs inside and on the decks. A gorgeous dune walkover solidifies the connection of the house to the beach.

On the ground (parking) level, a large open area is under the house on the south side. Event lighting, electricity, and stereo speakers that are provided for this level allow for open parties and receptions with or without live music. Stairs from this area ascend to the main deck on the gulf side with it's swimming pool and outdoor kitchen. Or take the elevator up.

On the main level, there is an open floor plan for flow and seating according to the needs of the guests. Large flat screen TV with surround sound, DVD/BluRay player, and Apple TV convert the living room to a media room for families, slide shows for receptions, and power point presentations for meeting groups.

The kitchen, dining area, and a buffet/hutch work together to provide meals for large groups efficiently. Hobbyist chefs will love the Wolf 8 burner gas range, 2 1/2 ovens, infinite refrigerator space, and freestanding commercial ice machine around the corner - along with the beach view even from the kitchen. One rectangular table for 10, two round tables for 5 or 6 each, and bar style seating for 5 or 6 allow 26 + to eat without even leaving the dining area. Three dishwashers, a large trash can, and two sinks simplify cleanup even for large groups.

Three large French doors open onto the largely covered main deck and it's incredible beach view, the dune walkover, the outdoor kitchen with luxury 48' gas grill, and the heated swimming pool with multiple light options for your event. When not listening to the waves, ceiling speakers allow music while enjoying the pool, a cocktail party/reception, sunbathing, or reading a book.

There are two handicap friendly bedroom/bathrooms on the main level, including wide doorways, roll-in showers, grab bars, compliant toilets, roll under sinks, and 5+ foot bathroom turnaround. These beautiful rooms and baths will be enjoyed by all, the southmost of these being right off the main deck with a gorgeous view of the deck and beach from the bed. For guests with handicap needs, please call to discuss all aspects of accessibility and needs related to the house.

All 10 of the bedrooms in the house have luxurious beds, a closet, a mirror, private baths, flat screen TVs, ceiling fans, reading lights at both sides of each bed, outlets for electronic devices at the bedside, and best of all: water views - the Gulf to the south, the Lagoon to the north, or a view of both!

The second floor has 5 of the bedrooms, two of these directly gulf front with the 2nd floor living/media room also on the south side in the middle. This room has comfortable seating and all the electronic amenities of the main floor living room. So groups can split up to watch different movies or sports or different power point presentations. Beautiful views of the beach are seen again, and a French door leads to a covered seating area. As on the main deck, this deck also extends the full width of the house, the sides to the extreme east and west being sun decks. These living rooms and decks can accommodate a sizable reception/party and we can provide temporary furniture storage if open floor space is desired. A queen sized sleeper sofa is in the 2nd floor living room.

The third floor (for some) will function as the bride/groom floor. A cozy living room, wet bar, shower for two, jacuzzi tub, walk in closet, and two king beds are on this floor. The bed chambers open onto the top gulf side deck and the elevated views up and down the coast are spectacular.

My wife and I have been Gulf coast beach goers all of our lives, from Point Clear to Panama City. Living a short drive from the coast, we are able to enjoy it often, of course more as vacation home owners. We enjoy sharing our house and hearing about the wonderful vacations that have been had.

George purchased this house in 2013

My wife and I built this house after much time and thought about what we would want in a dream house - applied to larger gatherings. This is the fruit of our labor, hopefully to be treasured by many and making for lifetimes of memories.

The beauty of the house and beach, the amenities and design, and the comfortable space for even large groups of 30 are unique in a house for the regional Gulf Coast.

An Incredible Trip

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I all came on a trip here and stayed in The Veranda. It was incredible! The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The owner was incredibly nice and accommodating, and the house is truly as amazing as it looks! We were blown away, and had one of the best weeks of our lives! Thank you, George + Family!

The Veranda exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 out of 5
Because I have very high expectations I do not typically write reviews. Our stay at The Veranda in Gulf Shores delivered above expectations. The listing description was accurate, property was clean, well maintained and I found the owner to be honest and helpful. There were many wonderful features/amenities not mentioned in the description that were pleasant surprises. The quality of the furnishings, HD tv's in every family room and bedroom, excellent floor plan, roomy bathrooms in all 10 bedrooms, multiple fridges & ice makers on every floor and the professional craftsmanship that obviously went into the property. The best part of the property is the kitchen - Absolutely fabulous for the discriminating chef! The view from every porch is beautiful and the beach was warm and inviting. Our family reunion/vacation that included 25 people turned out wonderful - even better than expected. I highly recommend The Veranda for large groups.
Gulf Shores was a fun destination. We have excellent chefs in our family so each couple was "chef for a day". We dinned in for every meal! There are plenty of grocery options, shopping, golf and family activities close by. Gulf Shores was a great destination.

Perfect, Just perfect!!

  • 5 out of 5
My family rented The Veranda for our annual family reunion. The house is just amazing! The two dens are perfect for adults and kids to be able to enjoy their time without being on top of each other. The kitchen and dining areas are fantastic. The pictures are accurate, but truly do not do it justice. Hopefully, our family reunion has found a new home for years to come.

Our group of 21 stayed at Dr. Wakefields gorgeous home for a week and had an incredible experience. This home is so perfect, it is on the beach, warm and inviting, comfortable, and the decor is top notch! Just finished building this year (2013). The amenities are awesome! The pool on the porch, half shaded and half in the sun was perfect for those of us who could not walk in the loose sand of the beach. Lots of sitting area on the porch and the kitchen, well , oh my! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This ranks #1 in our book. Would love to come back next year, but have to see where the leaders want to go. The men really enjoyed fishing on the beach. They caught lots of cats, but threw them back, not good for eating, but kept all the red fish they caught. Our pastor has them in his freezer. If you are looking for a beautiful, comfortable, fully equipped place to stay on the beach, this is it. We look forward to coming back. We didn't want to leave, but life goes on! Thank you Dr. Wakefield for building such a wonderful beach property for all to enjoy! I pray people will respect your property and treat it as if it were their own. We did. Thanks again for having us!
