vacation rental description

Sweet Dreams is the perfect house for your large family vacation, plus it can be rented by snowbirds as a 2 or 3 bedroom unit. Here are some of the highlights of this house:

- On West Beach Blvd with a great view of the gulf

- 2.5 miles from the intersection of Highway 59 and Beach Blvd; Close enough to enjoy the activities but far enough removed to escape the crowds

- 8, yes that is EIGHT, bedrooms

- 3 king beds, 4 queen beds, 3 twin beds, 1 full/twin bunk bed, 1 child's bed, and 3 queen sleeper sofas. This home can sleep 25 people!

- 5 full baths and 2 half baths

- 3 living areas

- 3 full kitchens

- 3 sets of washers and dryers

- Over 3,300 sq ft of living space

- Covered parking for at least 4 vehicles

- Driveway parking for at least 6 more vehicles

- Large deck on the front of the house with beach views

- Large screen TVs in every room! 37' HD televisions in all three living rooms and 32' televisions in every bedroom!

- Two video game systems (X-Box and Nintendo) with games

- A very large, private, in-ground pool! This pool is completely enclosed with a vinyl fence for privacy, has two ladders for easy access, and has lots of built-in seating for your comfort. There are chairs, chairs and more chairs for your comfort around the pool. Plus, enjoy some cold drinks by the pool at the tiki bar! This may be one of the nicest pools in Gulf Shores, with a size of 16 feet by 32 feet and a depth of 3.5 feet to 5.5 feet.

We know that the kids (and adults) love the beach, but a beach vacation also means time away from the beach. At Sweet Dreams, you can enjoy the beach, enjoy the pool, watch some of the dozens of movies in the house, or play some of the dozens of games. Or just sit on the deck and catch the rays. There is something for everyone!

Oh, did we mention the best feature of this house? In today's economy, all of us look for bargains. There is no doubt that this house is the best bargain in Gulf Shores. You can rent this home, with 8 bedrooms, 5 baths, sleeping 25 people, with a large private pool and a great beach view for half of what any similar house will cost in Gulf Shores! As a matter of fact, for what you will pay for this home for a week, you will probably only be able to get a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home sleeping half as many, possibly without a private pool!

A house this large means that a large extended family can enjoy a vacation together. With three kitchens, everyone can cook what they want. With 3 living rooms and 8 bedrooms all with HDTVs and DVD players, everyone can watch what they want! If you want everyone together, use the large deck facing the gulf or gather around the pool.

This home could be a perfect vacation spot for you even if you don't have 25 in your party. Because of the layout of this home, during the off-season (Fall - Spring) you can rent as few as 3 bedrooms or as many as 8 bedrooms. For a family not needing the entire house, there are steps from the covered parking to each side of the house. The front deck has a divider that can be closed off to ensure privacy between the two sides. Plus, there are steps at the back of the house to the 3rd floor apartment. But, if you do have a large family and need the entire house, there is a door on the deck to connect the two sides and there are steps in the east side unit that can be used to get to the apartment.

Here are your choices for how to rent the house and the costs for each. The prices are for a week, as we rent from Saturday to Saturday throughout the year. We also rent by the month in November through February. If you need less than a week, we may be able to assist you. Please email or call.

Fall: 16 August - 31 October

- Entire house (8 bedrooms) = $2,763

- West side of house (3 bedrooms) = $1,383

- East side of house (5 bedrooms) = $2,070

Winter: 1 November - 27 February

- Entire house (8 bedrooms) = $1,772 / week or $3,484 / month

- West side of house (3 bedrooms) = $883 / week or $1,604 / month

- East side of house (5 bedrooms) = $1,327 / week or $2,413 / month

Spring: 28 February - 15 May

- Entire house (8 bedrooms) = $3,484

- West side of house (3 bedrooms) = $1,743

- East side of house (5 bedrooms) = $2,615

- Prices are higher for spring break weeks -- please call

Summer: 9 May - 14 August

- Entire house (8 bedrooms) = $5,826

So, if you need lots of room, want a view of the gulf from three living rooms, three kitchens, two decks, and two bedrooms, want to be able to sleep up to 25 people, want a very large, private pool, and all at a great price, then Sweet Dreams is the place for you!

Is Sweet Dreams booked the week you need it or do you need something smaller? We have 3 other properties. If you want a stand alone house with an unobstructed view of the beach then check out The Southern Cross, vrbo number 257393. This is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house on West Beach Blvd. If you need 6 bedrooms and 6 baths, then you could rent The Southern Cross and Fun In The Sun. Fun In The sun, vrbo number 331813, is right on Little Lagoon (perfect for kids playing in the water) and is less than 50 yards from The Southern Cross! If you want to be right on the gulf, then look at A Whale Of A View, vrbo number 398689. This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo (5D) at The Whaler on East Beach Blvd. This unit may have the best gulf views of any unit in all of Gulf Shores with gulf views from every room in the house!

traveler reviews for this gulf shores house rental

Blessed Stay!!

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

We stayed on the east side of "Sweet Dreams", and there was plenty of room to accommodate two families, with children, and grandparents who loved the upstairs apartment for their "get away". :)
We have stayed in several homes in Gulf Shores, and this was one of the cleanest! Mark was very helpful with any questions, or concerns, and was prompt in returning any email, or phone calls. The pictures do not do this home justice! We had a wonderful stay, and the pool was an added blessing that we thoroughly enjoyed. The house is far enough down west beach, where the road is just two lanes, and easy to cross. I would love to recommend this home to any family, or friends!
Thank you, Mark, and Janet!

What an excellent place to stay with a large family

Review submitted: August 3, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

All we can say is great great great for a large family. We had 20 family members all together that ranged in age from 66 to 3 weeks old and it accommodated everyone very well. The bedrooms were very comfy and even the toddler bed not listed got plenty of use. The three separate living spaces allows different family members to enjoy different things at once. The pool was an excellent add and the maintenance man that cleans the pool kept everything in tip top shape. Very easy and safe access to the beach was a huge plus even transporting 8 kids several times a day from the house to the beach was a breeze. The pool toys, beach chairs and beach toys that other guest have left came in very handy and saved several hundred dollars in beach and pool equipment that we would have otherwise had to buy. We would recommend this for anyone.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Best Deal in Gulf Shores

Review submitted: July 10, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

We rented the entire house for a week and didn't want to leave! The driveway offers plenty of parking and the covered parking makes it easy to load and unload. Although the house comes with flat screens in every room we didn't use them. With the beach right across the street it only took minutes to get there. We took a couple of shade canopies and set them up on the first day and left them along with our chairs, boogie boards and sandcastle building toys there for the entire week. The beach is not crowded in the area of the house and makes for a very relaxing vacation. The pool is a great asset to the house and is equipped with tables and chairs. We didn't feel the need to eat out since the house came with a grill. I suggest buying your seafood at Aquila's and having a shrimp boil or using the grill. Crico's is a great pizza place that delivers for a $3.00 fee. We enjoyed the pool and the location of the house so much we didn't even want to leave to eat! If you have small children, I suggest you bring a baby gate because of all the stairs in the house. It is defiantly the best house you will find for the price and Mark is a pleasure to work with. I was in constant contact with him via text the whole week - he is a wealth of knowledge regarding the area and is quick to respond if there is any issues with the house, no matter how minor. We only had a light bulb on the front deck that needed changed and it was taken care of very quickly. If you are looking for a house to accommodate a large group, a quick walk to the beach and a nice pool for an affordable price this is your house!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway
