About Bill Byrd

We are a large extended family from grand kids to grand parents, that have been to many different beaches and many different oceans.

Bill Byrd purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Byrd chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We purchased this property after we stayed here and experienced the vacation of a lifetime. Gulf Shores is a very family oriented community, which makes this a great family vacation get away.

Sunsation......welcoming you to our home away from home, where its more than just a vacation,

it's a lifestyle!

What makes this house unique

This property is in an excellent location. Close enough to the heart of Gulf Shores to enjoy the great food and shopping, yet far enough away from the condos and crowded areas of the beach.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sunsation was a great place for our family to enjoy a week together. The house has everything you could want. It is so close to the beach (and the owners supply wagon and beach toys) ! The kitchens are well equipped for everything with a grill to boot! We enjoyed lots of adventures in Gulf Shores (deep sea fishing, The Hangout, LuLu's, The Fun Boat Dolphin Cruise, Alligator Alley. and Kayaking) but every evening our kids wanted to come back to the house and swim. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets with cocktails and swimming every night. We LOVED our time there!

The sunsation has everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house literally has everything you need! Just bring the clothes on your back!

A couple pros I want to mention that are not listed, they actually have two washing machines and two dryers. This was an awesome feature for a big group! Also, one of the bunk beds was a full bed on the bottom. So two people can fit in that bed nicely.

The only con I have is that they have a brand new house directly across the street, so no beach view. They were literally nailing the shutters on during our week stay, so it so new im sure the Sunsation owners have not had a chance to update that photo.

I would definitely recommend staying here! We all had a wonderful time!

Sunsation was excellent! It is clean, has a more than fully stocked kitchen, a wonderful pool, and is in a superb location! We truly enjoyed our trip and stay at Sunsation and would return without question. Thanks for giving two families some wonderful memories!!

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the front of the house is great. Access to the beach is even better. We swam in the heated pool every day even on cloudy somewhat cooler days. The house is split into two separate apartments, so the teenagers stayed on one side while the adult the other. It was perfect. Two living rooms, two kitchens. Plenty of parking space and outdoor porches, enclosures and tables and chairs.

Sunsation

  • 5 of 5

The Sunsation was perfect for our eleven people. It was clean, comfy and homey feeling. The heated pool was great and also had boogy boards and other pool items. The street to cross to get to the beach was of no problem at all. Beach is beautiful white sand and very fine. We enjoyed having two kitchens which worked out very well for our group. The listing photos were exactly what we found when we arrived. The house is very convenient to shops and restaurants. Would recommend this beach house to anyone and thank you to the Owners as they were extremely cooperative and helpful. Thanks for the high chair and pack-and-play yo use. Great vacation, hope to see you again.
