Sorry! NO COLLEGE GROUPS.

You'll love the PRIVATE Pool & Short Distance to the Beach at our Gulf Shores Vacation Rental beach duplex When Pigs Fly!! We are lucky to have our own pool, just for our duplex, looking south toward the Gulf. We are only 2 houses from the Gulf, about 200 yards back from the beach. We are the owners but because we now also manage neighboring homes, everything you see on VRBO classifies us 'manager'.

When Pigs Fly is a stacked duplex, one floor over the other with the same basic floor plan except that the upstairs has stairs to the Rooftop Crow's Nest with Panoramic Views of the Beach & Little Lagoon. Each half has 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths and sleeps 6-8.

Each half has:

*Spacious Living Area with French doors to a Wide Beachview Covered Porch

*Large Fully-Equipped Kitchen

*Spacious King Master Bedroom w/TV, Private Bath & French doors to a Beachview Porch

*2nd Queen Bedroom

*3rd Pair of Twins Bedroom

*Full-Size Laundry Room

*Smaller Lagoon-View Porch

*WIFI

The Upper Unit has a Jetted Tub in the Master Bath, a separate prep sink and Undercounter Ice Maker in the kitchen island and Stairs to a Rooftop Crow's Nest. There are Covered Porches on each floor for Enjoying the Wonderful Views, Gulf Breezes and Sound of the Surf. We have Covered Parking for up to 4 cars plus additional parking for a Boat Trailer or 2 more cars.

The Downstairs has Dining Space for Everyone with the Dining Table, Breakfast Bar and nearby Kitchen Table with Chairs.

Outside, around the Private Pool, there is also a Poolside Table & Chairs, Lounge Chairs, Charcoal Grill & a shaded Picnic Table under the house. You are welcome to use our assortment of Beach Chairs, Beach Carts & Pool Toys during your stay at When Pigs Fly.

Our duplex is conveniently located in the Family-Friendly West Beach area of Gulf Shores, 2.3 miles west of Hwy 59.

Beautifully appointed beach home, including all the amenities

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental was beautifully appointed with furnishings and all the amenities you would need for a wonderful stay. I enjoyed preparing meals in the kitchen, because it had clean, new appliances as well as a large supply of nice kitchen tools and utensils. We enjoyed walks on the safe streets and the short walk to the beach. The beds were very comfortable with nice sheets, pillows and covers. The gated private pool was a bonus. When a storm came and some pool furniture landed in the pool, the maintenance representative had come and gone, before we even had to call about it. We will be back and would rent any of the properties from Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals. Thank you for taking care of your renters!

Best Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We came to Gulf Shores for a bit of work, sun and fun. The owner was so full of great tips on where to go. We loved this place. It was so well appointed and clean. So beautifully decorated and great linens. You could rent 1/2 of the house or the whole thing and split between two families. The private pool was such an advantage. Easy walk to the beach or to the bay if you wanted to fish. They had everything needed that was top of the line. Superior appliances including great washer dryers. Even an outdoor shower and buggies to carry your stuff to the beach. Easy to drive to fairhope, or the outlet malls. We would for sure come back again.

Reviewer Comments:
We rented the house for 2 weeks. First week was my husband's family, second week my side of the family. We had tiny grandkids so having the balconies fenced AND gated was great. The private pool was also fenced & gated. A couple issues came up with some leaks but were taken care of very quickly. Although it was Spring Break we found the kids to extremely polite. Is it that wonderful Southern Culture? Great home for multiple families!

Reviewer Comments:
We had a wonderful stay at When Pigs Fly during Easter week, 2015. Two families shared the unit and it was in a great location, with easy access to the beach and great amenities. The pool was wonderful for the kids, the kitchen was well equipped, the yard area around the pool was great for tossing the football, etc. The house was large enough to accommodate our group nicely (5 adults, 3 teenagers and 3 kids.) There was lots of great porch/deck space and the grill was a great bonus since we ended up cooking most nights. All in all, one of the best spring breaks we've had. We will be back next year!

Reviewer Comments:
This must be the best home on Gulf Shores. The decor is comfy and not too "beachy", excellent mattresses, well stocked kitchen utensils, new washer/dryer, great pool, lawn and trash service, easy to use keys, wifi, instructions. The home has a wonderful view, large balconies, and a perfect cupola at the top! Sleeps 14 and not once did it feel small or crowded. Dining tables and living room seating was inviting and comfortable. Convenient location with an easy walk to beach and travel carts for your beach items. I never wanted to leave the pool. This is the home I would pick every time.

Great house with all of the ameneties we needed. With little kids, having a pool with a fenced in yard was wonderful. The only bad part of the vacation was having to leave!

Location

From the Owner

In 2004 we discovered that OMG, Alabama had a beach--and it was a really beautiful beach. We fell in love with the sugar white beaches and family-friendly atmosphere. We liked that Gulf Shores was easier to reach than any other beach we knew of along the Gulf Coast (no 2 lane roads to get here but it is still not huge and built up!) From the beach road we spotted the house & its big grassy pool area & porches and loved it, but couldn't really imagine that it was a possibility for us. We came up with a plan that calls for another 20 years of hard work, a lot of cooperation from Mother Nature, and the idea that other families like ours will continue to love Gulf Shores and want to come visit. We love the West Beach area of Gulf Shores. It is low-key and very residential but you are just a couple of miles from restaurants, within 3 miles of Waterville and the Zoo, within 4 miles of several grocery stores.

Activity and Interests

We have beach chairs, beach carts and an assortment of beach/pool toys. We are 1 1/2 blocks from good fishing and about 600 feet from the beach.

From $275 Per night

Amenities

From the Owner

Pool, pool, pool plus a nice BIG yard. Love the quiet location about 600' back from the beach, but also like have refreshing water right in the backyard. And maybe this is sacrilege, but it is really nice having a grass yard instead of sand! Our children were 3 & 5 when we bought the house and could manage the distance to the beach. We try to have the things we like at the house for your stay, like a grill, beach cart, books, games, etc. Lots of houses don't have those sorts of things but we hope they add a little something extra to your stay.
