  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
    Discover your beach house paradise, slow down from everyday life and relax at ‘Ocean to Bay,’ a 3-bedroom, 3-bath vacation rental home that comfortably sleeps 10 in Gulf Shores. Nestled in the Heritage Shores community, this home overlooks Mobile Bay and rests just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico shore. Spectacular views from the back balcony, a spacious front porch, 1,950 square feet of tastefully-appointed and easy access to local attractions provides the ideal beach town getaway!

    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Master Bedroom: King Bed, Twin Bed | Bedroom 2: King Bed, Twin-Over-Full Bunk Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed | Hallway: Hidden Twin-Over-Twin Bunk Bed

    Enter into this handsome beach home, pass the in-unit laundry machines and hidden hallway bunk beds, then step into the bright, well-furnished open-living space. Comfortable furnishings, modern amenities and refreshing natural light from balcony windows create a home-away-from-home feel in a beach town environment.

    The gorgeous, fully equipped kitchen features an L-shaped center-island bar and sink counter, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Collaborate with your travel companions to prepare fresh, catch-of-the-day seafood entrees.

    Move your party into the inviting living room, where a dining table with seating for 8 rests underneath a hanging lantern. Uncork a bottle of wine, crack some beers or mix your favorite cocktails to enjoy with your beach-inspired, home-cooked goods.

    Step outside with your favorite beverage in-hand and relax on the outdoor furniture provided by the large back balcony. Kick back, forget your worries and take in the soothing coastal breezes and views of Mobile Bay in the distance.

    During those lazy afternoons when you feel like staying in, unwind around the large flat screen digital TV in the home’s living room. Watch the big game, catch up on your favorite programs and enjoy friendly conversation on the room’s 3 sofas.

    The Heritage Shores community also offers plenty of activities for you to enjoy close to home. Walk down the street from your home’s front porch until you reach the community tennis court, pools and covered dining area, where you can lounge poolside and grill some burger patties for the group!

    After a long day of waterfront adventures, drift off to sleep in one of the 3 welcoming bedrooms. All the bedrooms boast a king-sized bed and flat screen TV, while one room has a twin-over-full bunk bed for additional sleeping.

    The master bedroom features a quaint sitting space, a twin-sized day-bed and an en suite bathroom with a double-sink vanity and walk-in shower. Wake up after a quiet, peaceful night of sleep and refresh with a bath or shower to prepare for another exciting day!

    -- THE LOCATION --

    ‘Ocean to Bay’ rests within the Fort Morgan area, which offers a quiet, secluded beach-going experience. Find the perfect spot to plant your shade umbrella for the duration of your stay, and return every day to spend time laying out under the sun, fishing from the coast or swimming in the Gulf Shores waters!

    Your home-away-from-home also provides a great location to explore nearby cultural attractions. Walk across the street to observe Navy Cove Harbour, or take a 3-mile drive west to tour Fort Morgan, a historic 19th-century military fort used during the Civil War. From Fort Morgan, you can take a ferry and cross the Bay to reach Dauphin Island, filled with exciting waterfront attractions.

    While you’ll enjoy the peaceful privacy of the Fort Morgan area, downtown Gulf Shores is an easy 20-minute drive from ‘Ocean to Bay.’ Spend days exploring the quaint boutiques and beachfront restaurants in a lively atmosphere.

    Start your afternoon in town with a drink at Bahama Bob’s, head to The Hangout for fresh seafood in a popular, cafeteria-style environment, then finish your night dancing to live music in a club setting at Mudbugs Seafood Bar & Grill.

    Fully stocked kitchen had some items in disrepair and some general items missing. You have to bring your own toilet paper and trash bags were missing too. Absolutely no sleeping on the couch is a listed rule. These are minor details, but gave the stay a bitter taste, like we weren't really welcome, but otherwise the house is nice and the location is good. If they can update some of the kitchen utensils and give that sense of welcome, this property would be perfect.

    This was my second AirBnb experience. It was awesome!! This was a great family vacation. We had 6 adults, each couple had their own space and own bathrooms. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed, except food of course. The home was comfy and clean! We loved both the front and back porch. Not a far walk at all to the beach. And I loved how secluded it was. It may have been the time of year but there was not many people at all at the beach. You do have to bring your own beach towels, toys, and chairs etc but there is also a reasonable beach rental place close by that will leave you set up for the week. And your things are very safe. There are two pools and seriously we were the only ones using the pool the whole week except one day! It's a 20 minute drive to the 'touristy' part of Gulf Shores (and Walmart) which we did twice. But unless you just want that scene or the shops there is no reason to leave this house and area. We did have some trouble getting and Uber or Lyft to come out this far but it all worked out in the end. We also got the absolute BEST massages at Aqua Bellas Massage and Day Spa. This is a house we would love to revisit! It did not disappoint!

    The house was as listed and pictured accurately. Other reviews mentioned the beds were uncomfortable. I only slept in one (the master), and I agree it wasn't comfortable due to how firm it is, however I did not wake with back pain. If you like firm mattresses, you'll love it! The refrigerator gave us problems. When we got there, the refrigerator had a patch of condensation on the freezer door under the ice dispenser. This right away gave me pause. It was difficult to open the door because it was frozen shut with frost at the dispenser. It was extremely difficult to get it to dispense ice at all because the path was blocked with frost build-up. I did not contact anyone about this because who wants to take time out to handle repairs on vacation? But it cooled just fine on both the freezer and refrigerator sides. I should have brought my fire stick, because the channels provided by the antenna offered little for the children (not that they spent much time watching TV). The only REAL disappointment was with the community pool. It closed at 8:00 instead of 10:00 because the lights were out and one of the pools was roped off altogether. The man who told us we had to leave said the lights had been out all summer. I personally find that unacceptable and this issue needs to be resolved. My son was burned the first day so swimming after dark would have greatly enhanced his stay. The maintenance on the exterior of the homes also needs improvement. I have been staying in this community for around 15 years (we usually stay in The Beach Castle, but I had fewer guests this time) and I can see that things are not what they were. My adult children grew up coming here and I hope to continue that tradition with my 10 year old and future grandchildren. In addition to that, the friends I brought this time usually stay at orange beach in a high occupancy condo complex and fell in love with this community, the less densely populated beach that provided ease of watching their children, and the water was SO clear and pretty that it was blue/green this trip. So I hope something is done with property exterior maintenance in the community as a whole because I adore this hidden gem of a community and hope to continue staying here in the future with guests.

    Overall stay was ok. Had great family time with our kids and grandkids. Reason for the 3 stars, is all beds were uncomfortable. The master bed sink in the middle, so I woke up every day with backaches. One of the queen beds were hard. The worst thing was the freezer did not get cold. We list alot of meat because of it! House was clean and well kept.

    Tiffany, thank you for your review. We are so happy you had an enjoyable stay with your family, but we apologize that some aspects of your trip fell short of your expectations. This homeowner strives to provide all guests with a 5-star experience at their beach home, and they will take a look at all the mattresses to ensure all travelers are comfortable. They have also had the refrigerator and freezer serviced so it is back to functioning as it should be. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to improve and we hope to host you again soon!

    the house was nice but not new. it is 3 blocks to the beach and a block from the pool. there is no where to park at the beach or pool so walking is it. there is only 3 bedrooms plus 2 twin beds in a closet in the hallway. It worked for the 9 of us. My teenage son and his friend liked to closet beds go figure. The beach was busy and rental companies left tents up everywhere for rent. Would have preferred a gated community with a private beach -thought this was. The pools were hot and not very busy. About 25 miles to town Gulf Shores, Went to eat at Tacky Jacks and LuLu's both were ok LuLu no ac. Would recommend the area.

    Reviewed by: Christian H. on

    Comment:

    The house was large and the kitchen was well equipped. The parking was adequate. The beds and bunks in each room were extremely uncomfortable. The fridge and freezer both had a very strong fish odor (a previous guest must have been fishing and left their catch in the fridge/freezer). We cleaned it out and bought baking soda for the fridge/freezer but it did not help. General cleanliness of the property was below average. Baseboards, door frames and closets were very dusty and the light switches were all visibly grungy. Property was also about a thirty minute drive to large grocery stores and restaurants.
