vacation rental description

Amazing Beachfront home with 4 large bedrooms, 4.5 baths and lots of extras that will make you want to never leave! Mar Tortuga is a wonderful custom home with space to graciously enjoy time with your family amid comfortable furnishings and luxury touches.

It is a cliche but true, pictures don't do it justice. You really do have to see it to believe it. We drove by Mar Tortuga for several years and didn't really give it a second look but the moment we walked inside, our jaws dropped! Actually we only got as far as the covered area underneath with the mural and swings and the best sea oats providing a magical pathway to the beach and we knew--this is a really special place.

Mar Tortuga means Sea Turtle--most years, including 2010, Sea Turtles nest in the dunes in front of the house. If you come in October, you just might see their first journey to the sea.

There is a Large Main Floor Open Living Area with 2 Seating Areas; a Dining Table for 10, plus a Breakfast Bar and a Game Table for more Dining Space; a Beautifully Stocked Kitchen, plus a Wet Bar, Undercounter Ice Maker, and Large Pantry; and Spacious Beachfront Porches, both covered and open to the sun. Relax on the Lounge Chairs with a cool beverage or step right down to the beach.

There is also an Oversized Main Floor King Master complete with a chaise, a futon (for families with small children this is wonderful), and a Deluxe Bath featuring a Separate Shower, Jacuzzi Tub, Double Vanities, Dressing Table and lovely custom tile work. The smaller of the 2 Laundries is on this floor.

The Top Floor features a wonderful OWNER'S SUITE with a large King Bedroom with Private Beachfront Porch; a Desk area with Computer & a Wet Bar with Undercounter Refrigerator; a Huge Master Bath with Separate Tub and Shower, Two Vanities and beautiful finishes. There are 2 More Large Bedrooms: A Queen Bedroom, and a Bedroom with a Queen Bed plus a Daybed and Trundle, each with a Private Bath and a TV. The Very Large primary Laundry Room is on this level.

Great porches offer Amazing Views of Gulf Shores Sugar White Sand Beaches. This Quiet Area of West Beach has a single row of beachfront homes, plus a single row of homes on Little Lagoon. It is a wonderful, quiet area of the beach but it is less than 4.5 miles from the heart of Gulf Shores.

Reviewer Comments:
Such a beautiful spot, right on the beach. Family friendly neighbors and beach. Maintenance responded quickly with problems. We would love to come back again to "our" home on th the Gulf Shores. We found Publix grocery to exceed our expectations and even made some friends. The cold/windy day we went to the Naval Museum and must see! What a lovely home.
