Living in Baton Rouge, LA we were presented an opportunity to buy this duplex and as it turns out a couple in Baton Rouge right down the street from us bought the other side of this house. We have two children that love spending time at the beach. Since we cannot spend every day there, we want to share this beautiful house with other people.
Ellen Schweitzer purchased this house in 2012
We make frequent trips to the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Pensacola area and we usually get one or two water accesses but with this house you get pool, bay, and beach access from one location.
With a porch and balcony on the front and back of the house, the view is unlimited. We have made this home comfortable with light decor. Tile and scored concrete throughout the house with carpet in the Master bedroom. The most unique benefit to this house would be all the variety of water access available; pool, bay, and beach in addition to the many close restaurant/bar locations. If it's Blue Angels, the Flora-Bama mullet toss, holiday weekends, or just a summer vacation, there are plenty of attractions between Orange Beach and Pensacola that would entertain the whole family.
This home was perfect for us. We made a quick trip from Houston to Pensacola to visit our son for Christmas. He is in a training program in Pensacola. The home was very spacious, very well equipped and we loved the balconies in front in back. Morning coffee on the deck, enjoying reading in the afternoon with the sound of the gulf nearby. There is a small water view of the Gulf, but the view of the canal is great. I can only imagine how wonderful it is in the summer. We were not able to use the pool, it was too cold, be we could certainly enjoyed view. The owner was wonderful, very accommodating. We had everything we needed while we were there. If this had been an extended visit, we would not have lacked cooking utensils, plenty of pots and pans available. I can see that it would be perfect for a week or more family vacation. The beach is across the street has very convenient access and there is an outdoor shower to rinse off when you return from the beach. Unfortunately, it was the wrong time of year to take advantage, but I can see where it would be wonderful in the summer.
There were four of us and of course we fit quite comfortably. But there is definitely room for more. The dining room table would easily seat 8. There was a large TV in the great room and smaller TV's in the bedrooms. The sky view at night was fantastic. We were able to see so many stars. The area is mostly quiet. There was some traffic noise from the highway, but it wasn't overwhelming. Everything was convenient. We tried a pizza place down the road. We were not able to try other local restaurants, due to the holiday, but there were several in the vicinty.
I highly recommend this property. Working with the owners was great. My only regret is that we were only there for 3 days, not 3 weeks.
WOW! Yes, that is what you will say when you check into this AMAZING home! WOW!
I just can't say enough about the home, location and owners. My husband wanted a special place where we could enjoy a week with our kids and grandkids when we celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We searched the East Coast and the Gulf Coast to find just the right spot. He wanted a pool, I wanted to see the ocean. Not only did we get BOTH of those options in this private home, we also got a bonus Dock behind the house where my grandson and I could FISH to our Hearts content. GREAT MEMORIES! Plus he still talks about that "Big Daddy who got away!"
There were 6 adults, two 2 year olds and my oldest grandson who is 9. We all had ample room and loved our stay. 3 BR/2.5 BA
We did not realize how convenient the location was until we got there. Quick 15 minute drive to Free National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola / Blue Angels; 15 minute drive to Free Pensacola Greyhound track; 5 minute drive to FloraBama; 4 minutes to Orange Beach; 8 minutes to Gulf Shores with Zoo, Hangout, Water Park and Amusement Park and 45 minutes to Fort Morgan and/or Ferry ride to Dauphin Island! Lots of GREAT stuff to do within a very short distance.
Walmart, Publix, Target all within a 5-7 minute drive. Fresh Veggies at roadside stand less than a mile away. Pretty much anything that you want.
I also want to recommend Crab Trap restaurant in Perdido Key and ask for Courtney. BEST SERVER EVER!!!!!!
Well, I could go on and on but I GUARANTEE YOU THAT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED if you rent this amazing home.
Just remember - after a fun time at the beach it is a short walk back to the house. Take a quick shower to wash the sand off at the outdoor shower and then drop into the pool for a relaxing swim or float! Inground pool has shallow end to deep end so all ages will be comfortable.
I hope that you get the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful home. While the home is a duplex, we never heard the family on the other side who were there the first 2 days we were there. They did not use the pool while we were there so it was like having our own private pool for a week. Thanks for reading and my final thought is about the owners. I have rented several VRBO properties but I can say that the owner of this home was MORE than accommodating, willing to answer any questions and very prompt with her reply! THANKS so much for sharing your home with us. You made our 30th SO VERY SPECIAL!!!!
Really enjoyed our stay. So convenient to everything; it was a great, relaxing time.
This hone was the PERFECT location and size for our trip. We were married right down the street on the beach. This home had everything needed to make our stay memorable! The pool was perfect and being across the street from the gulf waa amazing! The decks gave everyone a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery and privacy if needed. THANK YOU! Hopefully we will spend some anniversaries in this home...
Loved the location of this house. The space was adequate for 10. We plan to return next year.
The house was beautiful and comfortably slept a group of 10. The location is very convenient- the beach is right across the street and there are restaurants and bars close by. I would definitely stay here again!
NEW!!! Ride a zip line over the gulf. Blue Angels practice and perform at the Naval Airbase 12 miles East in Pensacola, Florida, Flora-Bama where the infamous mullet toss takes place, The Hangout, Lu Lu's which is Jimmy Buffet's sister's restaurant, and lots of other seafood restaurants to choose from, The Track has games, go-carts, miniature golf and more, miles of white sandy beaches, boat slip, built-in swimming pool for duplex. Tennis courts in the neighborhood, golf courses, parasailing and more.
We are the owner of the property and we manage it ourselves. No rental agent to deal with.
