About Stephanie

I live in Gulf Shores and my property is completely 100% owner-operated. I strive to provide a clean, comfortable, affordable vacation for all!

Stephanie purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie chose Alabama Gulf Coast

I have been vacationing in Gulf Shores for over 20 years. West Beach is by far the best spot! Quiet and peaceful, but close to many attractions, and within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

We offer a hurricane refund, cat 2 and up.

What makes this house unique

The best part of the beach, this property is 1 block west of the last convenience store, ice cream, seafood, family friendly bar and grill with live music. Great Gulf view, Big front porch with breakfast table. Outdoor shower. Covered picnic table. Beach across street from home, lagoon/bay behind. Heart of West Beach.

great place close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Family trip to the beach (grandparents, parents, toddler and a dog!) between Christmas and NYE. The house was very well appointed and had everything we needed. Beds were comfy and plenty of room for all. Easy access to beach, just across the street. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great, just-like-home place to stay that's close to the beach. Thanks for sharing your home with us.... we had a wonderful time!

Great stay, great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay here. The home was clean and in nice order when we arrived. Two of the bedrooms are up stairs, so you may want to keep that in mind depending on you or your guests mobility. There is nothing I can say that would have made our stay any better. You are located a few houses down from a small store if you need or forget anything. All the shops, restaurants, and Wal Mart are just a few minutes drive. Being located on the highway was not an issue to us. The traffic really isn't bad and you don't hear it at all from the bedrooms. The walk across the street to the beach isn't too long. We have three kids and not once did they complain. We would recommend this property to anyone.

We will definitely stay here again! Animal friendly, clean and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, roomy and clean. You can see the beach, and with a small walk (maybe a block) you are ready to enjoy the nice clean beach. However you will have to drive to stores, restaurants ETC... Traffic was not bad at all, we would definitely stay here again... nice balcony, charcoal grill and an outside shower to wash off the sand... bedrooms were very nice a roomy... can't wait for our next vacation!

Very clean and had everything needed and more

  • 5 of 5

Rental was close to town and just a short walk to the beach. Ms Stephanie was so kind and walked down to the beach one evening and took our family pictures for us. We will be back again and stay.
