Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 18, 2014
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.

About the Owner

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.

Impressive property with all of the amenities

  • 5 of 5
This house has everything a group could need and more. The layout of bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas on each floor was very thought out and convenient. There is not a bad place to be in this house. Multiple or each appliance in the kitchen was helpful as well as refrigerators and ice on the upper floors. The house was very clean and orderly when we arrived. All in all we loved everything about our stay will be back. You won't regret staying here!

The Veranda is truly perfect....

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of two families (14 adults, 6 children) enjoyed a memorable week in The Veranda last month. There really aren't enough superlatives to describe this house. I can't imagine that there is a more beautiful, more spacious, or better equipped rental in the Gulf Shores-Orange Beach area. The listing photos, attractive as they are, don't begin to do this home justice.
Every detail has been thought out in the design and furnishings. The kitchen would delight the most sophisticated gourmet, the views are stunning and the beach was practically private during our week long stay. The pool on the main level porch was perfect for the little ones and grandparents, too. Your choice of shade or sun, all with the ocean sights and sounds!
The owner was thoughtful and so nice to work with and the management agents, were prompt and helpful with questions and minor repair issues. Everything was clean and well maintained.
Our group also enjoyed the indoor tennis center, the Pirates and Princess breakfast at the Hangout, and a dolphin cruise.
We hope to make a return trip with a group of neighborhood friends and I would give an enthusiastic recommendation all around for this rental.

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 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.
