Cute house at a good price

  • 4 of 5

At first, when we drove up I wasn't sure about the place. The outside stairs and deck need a little work but the inside is exactly like the pictures show. Very cute, clean and comfortable!! Beach was a short walk away. Love this area! My mom and I had a great weekend!

Just returned home after a 5 week stay at Toucan Play 1. There are so many good things to say that I will try to summarise. First, Eric was extremely easy to work with setting up the reservation. When we arrived he even help carry up our luggage and supplies. We are two 80 year olds. The home was very well kept and clean. The living room was good size and had a large patio door which looked toward the gulf. The kitchen was well supplied with everything you would ever need and more. The bedrooms were good size with lots of natural light and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were clean with lots of towels. From the back deck you could see the Gulf, and from the front deck the Bay. It was a short 2 minute walk too the beach. I recommend this place to anyone that wants beautiful quiet beach retreat.

Nice relaxing beach house, pet friendly!!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my family of 4 and 2 small dogs. We really loved the duplex house and enjoyed the peaceful area. Pet friendly and the beach house is nice with amenities. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, book this place. When we go back to Alabama Shores, we'll book this duplex house again.

We loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the house was great if you are looking for a more relaxing visit to Gulf Shores, the drive in to town wasn't bad at all. The kitchen had plenty of supplies to cook with and it was nice to have the washer and dryer there. The only thing that could use a little work is the balcony, there are a few nails sticking up.
