Description

Can't Be Beat! Great Beach View! Pier In Little Lagoon! Pool! Fish, Swim, and Relax!

The Southern Cross.  It may not get any better than this!  Seriously!  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 50 yards out the back door.  Swimming?  Try the pool to the back of the house.  Quiet, peaceful relaxation?  Try awakening in your bed to a view of the gulf, or sitting in your living room looking out on the gulf, or hearing the waves crash at night from one of your decks with great views of the gulf.  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 great views of the Gulf of Mexico out the front door.  It also has great views of Little Lagoon out the back door where you can fish (spotted trout, red fish, flounder, 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 and tie is up in our boat slip!  The kids will also enjoy the shared swimming pool.  This is NOT a condo ... this is your own house.  Very hard to find a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house with great gulf views, lagoon fishing, swimming pool, boat slip and in a quiet area!

This home features 3 bedrooms, all with queen size beds plus bunk beds in the downstairs bedroom.  There are also 3 full baths.  Two bedrooms and two baths are upstairs and both have incredible views of the gulf and open onto a large deck.  These bedrooms also have sitting areas.  The third bedroom and bath is downstairs and looks out onto the lagoon and also opens onto a deck.  There are tables and chairs on all of the decks.  Also on the first floor are a kitchen, eating area, living room, and laundry room.  Sliding doors take you from the living room onto a first floor deck overlooking the gulf.  The living room has ample sitting options, plus both a queen sleeper sofa and twin sleeper loveseat.   Note ... it probably goes without saying but sleeper sofas are best for kids ... not very comfortable for adults!!!  The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need.  Eating options include a decorative table and chairs with a great gulf view or pull a stool up to the bar separating the kitchen and living room.  There is a 42" high definition TV in the living room and high definition TVs in each bedroom.  Plus, there are 4 DVD players.  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 up to three vehicles under the house.

What else can we tell you?  Did we mention the full size washer and dryer in a separate downstairs room?  Or that the living room and master bedrooms have sliding glass doors onto decks overlooking the gulf?  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?  Come see for yourself.  As the song says 'when you see the Southern Cross for the first time, you understand now why you came this way.'   

Is The Southern Cross booked the week you need it? We have 2 other properties. If you want to be right on the gulf then look at A Whale Of A View (Emeral Coast # 778).  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 (Emeral Coast # 683).  This is a very large house with 8 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and a very large, private pool on West Beach Blvd.  This house will actually sleep 30!
