About Vicki

I have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1985 and love it. It has changed a lot over the years but always retains the small Southern beach town atmosphere that I love.

Vicki purchased this house in 2015

Why Vicki chose Gulf Shores

The location of this house is great if you like the beach and the lagoon. You can walk to the beach and stay all day or go the lagoon front pool and lounge with the kids or soak up the sun. The pier is very nice, go fishing or just sit and watch nature as it happens. There is seating on the pier and a covered area to sit in the shade. Bring your fishing pole!

This house has a great floor plan for a family vacation. The main living area is large and has plenty of seating for everyone to spend time together. The outdoor decks are large as well and are perfect for sitting outside esp at night when the temps cool off.

Beautiful house and fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. It was our first Thanksgiving in a different venue than my house. Other than the cable TV and WiFi not working, it was perfect! The owner was gracious and we appreciate it ! I highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. I am so embarrassed about the cable and internet. We finally did get Mediacom out there on the 28th and they installed a "Temporary Drop Line", it took them about 15 min to do this and everything fired right up. They did acknowledge that the permanent line to the house is cut underground. Not sure why this was so chaotic for them to fix. No one at Mediacom would help us while you were in the house. Hopefully we can have you back again and everything will be perfect. Thanks again.

We just returned home from our week at the Hamilton house. (6 adults and 1 toddler) The house was everything the pictures showed. We were steps from the community pool, which we used daily. Just a few blocks to walk to the beach. Short drive to restaurants and shops. And we had perfect weather. We definitely plan on booking this again.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family consists of 7 adults ant 2 grand-babies. The house was awesome! We had plenty of room. I liked being close to the pool and lagoon. The beach was a 2 1/2 block walk, but that was not bad. The area of Gulf Shores was also a good location; not too crowded and everyone was friendly. I would definitely return.

Great house! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs! We had 4 teenagers and 3 adults. Everything was as pictured or described. The location was close enough to all of the things we wanted to do, yet not in the middle of the most congested areas. We walked to the beach easily (2 short blocks), and it is very close to the pier and swimming pool. The house is on a cul-de-sac with other attractive houses. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had a view of the water.

Lovely home and just what we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! The beach access was fantastic and our children loved the lagoon beach and pool.

We had a few bad weather days, but we were perfectly comfortable having family time inside. Thank you again, we will definitely keep this home in our favorites list!

The "Hamilton Beach House" is located on a small Cul-De Sac that fronts the Little Lagoon in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The beach is a 3 block walk but also is accessible by car if you want to drive to the 13th Street beach access. This house is located in the "On Golden Pond" subdivision, a small collection of Key West style, classic raised beach cottages. On Golden Pond features a bay front pool and a great fishing pier along with a small sand beach. Theres a boat/jet ski launch available as well. Its just a quick drive into Gulf Shores for seafood restaurants, beachwear shopping, golf, the Gulf Shores Zoo, and all the fun festivals throughout the year at the main Gulf Shores public beach. Its an easy drive to great outlet shopping, Mobile Bay, antique shops in Fairhope and historical sites of Fort Morgan. Take a day trip to Pensacola Air Museum, the USS Alabama Battleship, Bellingrath Gardens, historical Mobile, Dauphin Island and so much more.
