vacation rental description

Fun In The Sun! The name says it all! What are you looking for in your vacation home? Play time on the beach? Okay, that would be less than 100 yards from the front door by way of your deeded boardwalk beach access. Fishing in Little Lagoon? Okay, that is only 10 yards out the back door. Swimming? Try the pool to the back of the house. Quiet, peaceful relaxation? Try awakening in your bed looking out to the gulf, or sitting in your living room looking out on the peaceful Little Lagoon, or sitting on one of the decks watching beautiful sunsets over the unobstructed view of the water. This house has it all! Located 3.7 miles from the intersection of Hwy 59 on West Beach Blvd, you are close to the great restaurants and shopping but yet in a very quiet part of Gulf Shores.

This house has a view of the Gulf of Mexico from two of the bedrooms. One of these bedrooms has french doors leading out to a deck overlooking the swimming pool and a view of the gulf. There are also great views of Little Lagoon from the kitchen, dining area and living room on the first floor and from the third bedroom on the third floor. The greatest thing about this house is the location. It sits directly on Little Lagoon! You can sit in the grass in front of the house, in a chair under the house, or on either of the two decks on the 1st and 2nd levels and watch the boats go by, watch the various birds catching fish, or just enjoy looking at the water. Little Lagoon is a 10 mile long body of salt water where you can fish (spotted trout, red fish, flounder, croakers, stingrays and many other fish all call the lagoon home) and crab day and night. Of course, you can clean your fish at the fish cleaning station at the pier, which goes out into the lagoon. Have your own boat? Launch it using our boat ramp. The kids will also enjoy the shared swimming pool. This is not a condo but rather a townhouse. You only have one neighbor. Very hard to find a 3 bedroom, 3 bath townhouse with a gulf view, sitting directly on Little Lagoon, with fishing in the lagoon and gulf, a swimming pool and in a quiet area of Gulf Shores!

This home features 3 bedrooms, all with queen size beds plus bunk beds (with a full sized mattress on the bottom) in the upstairs bedroom. There are also 3 full baths, each connected to a bedroom. Two bedrooms and two baths are upstairs and one has an incredible view of the lagoon and has sliding glass doors onto a large deck. The third bedroom and bath is downstairs and looks out over the swimming pool and to the gulf. It also opens onto a deck. There are tables and chairs on all of the decks. On the first floor are the kitchen, eating area, living room, and washer and dryer. Sliding doors take you from the living room onto a first floor deck overlooking the lagoon. The living room has ample sitting options, including a queen sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. Eating options include a glass table and chairs with a great lagoon view or pull a stool up to the bar separating the kitchen and living room. There is new a 42' high definition TV in the living room and 32' high definition TVs in each bedroom with Dish Network service. Plus, there are 3 DVD players and an Game Cube with games for the kids. Speaking of games, there are lots of games, books, puzzles and toys for everyone to enjoy. Finally, don't worry about your vehicle since you can park three small vehicles or two large vehicles under the house.

What else can we tell you? Did we mention the full size washer and dryer? Or that the living room and one bedroom have sliding glass doors onto decks overlooking the lagoon? Or that this is a very quiet location where you can really relax? Or that the house has a colorful beach decor? Or that you can sleep as many as 11 in the home? Or that there is wireless internet throughout the house? Come see for yourself. You will never want to leave as you will be having so much Fun In The Sun!

Is Fun In The Sun booked the week you need it? 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 less than 50 yards from Fun In The Sun. This unit is perfect for those wanting a house with a great gulf view! 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! If you have a big family reunion, go to Sweet Dreams, vrbo number 291114. This is a very large house with 8 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and a very large, private pool on West Beach Blvd.

traveler reviews for this gulf shores house rental

First trip to Gulf Shores

Review submitted: June 23, 2014   Date of arrival: June 7, 2014

Fun In The sun was exactly what we had. The townhouse was perfect for the needs of everyone in our group. We had two couples and one single person so everyone had their own bedroom with a nice TV and bath which meant we all had a place for private time when we wanted. It was very well equipped with all the items we needed to make our stay very pleasant and easy. It was very clean. The description in the listing was very accurate. The location was great. We could sit on one of the back balconies and enjoy the little lagoon or in the front and watch the ocean and the pool. We really enjoyed the short walk to the lagoon and sitting on the dock either fishing or just taking in the view. We rented kayaks one day and just paddled around the lagoon. What fun! Mark was extremely helpful in making our first trip to Gulf Shores a very memorable vacation.

Papa and Gigi's First Grandkids' Bch Vacation

Review submitted: June 1, 2014   Date of arrival: May 22, 2014

Great house and perfect location for young kids to play in lagoon, pier, pool and beach. We ate in most nights with helpful info on carryout seafood recs from Mark.
With our 6 adults and 3 kids ages 2 and under, I should have gotten a 4br house. Even though the Fun in the Sun sleeps 11, be sure it's the right combo of kids for that to work well.
Info in the listing is very accurate and I would recommended this house to anyone.

Fun in the Sun was perfect for our family of 11. This was our first time staying on the quiet side of Gulf Shores. And we'll do it again!! We were there during spring break yet, it was quiet and relaxing and there were no crowds. But, it is only a few minutes away from shopping, restaurants (Bahama Bob's and Lulu's were fun) and Gulf State Park and Pier.

We found Fun in the Sun to be very family friendly. We were three families in one and having 3 bedrooms/3baths gave everyone their space. The condo/townhouse is just as pictured. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. With 5 kids the washer and dryer were certainly appreciated. Mark, the owner, was very easy to work with, promptly answering our questions.
Fun in the Sun is a great place for kids. Our nine yr old grandson (and his grandpa) loved the lagoon fishing dock, which is literally just steps away from the front door. Of course, our young teen girls worship the sun and the beautiful, quiet ocean beach truly was just a short walk. The pool was never crowded and very clean. We could not have asked for anything better suited to our family.

The kids rated the vacation as AWESOME!! and can't wait til next year.
