The house was just the size we needed for our large family. The quantity of towels was insufficient for that large of house and number of people with kids. There was a problem with ants in the kitchen. other than that the house was great. we had a wonderful stay.

Our family of 17 really enjoyed our stay. Loved the house and location. Very private which we liked. Kitchen well stocked. Two complaints: ants in the kitchen and one bedroom upstairs didn't cool down very much. I let management know about these two issues. Maintenance came and changed air filter, but that didn't help the cooling of that one bedroom. And had these very small ants all week in the kitchen. But other than that we enjoyed our stay. If we would use this house again that one bedroom upstairs would probably stay empty, just too warm.

Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals couldn't have been better.
The house was great, but could have used a vacuum cleaner. There were also problems with roaches and ants--I guess you can expect that being by the water. Perhaps getting the house sprayed monthly would help.

This is a great house for families. It has a bunk room for kids, three king size beds, the access to the beach is great and the pool was used often. Both den areas have a great view as does the dining area.

We have a large family and this was a beautiful home, plenty of space for the grandchildren . This home is beautifully decorated, very spacious rooms, and the kitchen was fully equipped . We enjoyed our stay, and plan to return next year. The kids loved the bunk room, and they loved swimming in the pool on the deck. The private boardwalk to the beach was really nice, and the beach was very family friendly. We had a very good experience renting this home, and we really thought it was very beautiful.

We had a great 8 days in Doonie's Dunes beach house. This was the second year we rented the home, and we signed up for next year as well. We love this home for these reasons:
- The home is well stocked with everything you need, actually better than any home or condo we have rented in the last 20+ years.
- The board walk to the beach makes it easy to get to the beach.
- The pool is just the right size for our grand kids, and it is well maintained by a pool maintenance service.
- The bunk room is wonderful for sleeping a bunch of our grand kids.
- Three master suites are a treat for our grown married kids.
- Geoff at GS Vacation Rentals ensures everything is working properly and if there is any issue he quickly has it rectified.
- The gulf water was in the low 70s, perfect for board surfing in the 3 foot waves. And when we didn't have large waves, perfect for board skimming.
- The home is located close to the end of West Beach Blvd, which makes the beach area private and quiet. The homes on either side are not rentals, and those residents were not at the their homes during our stay.

Wonderful home for multi-family group

We had four families (8 adults & 10 children) stay in this house and it was perfect for this large group. There are bathrooms for almost every room and two living areas which was great for the adults and kids. The house has comfortable beds, beautiful furniture and was very well maintained and kitchen stocked with plenty of dishes, pots/pans, towels, etc. The pool is a little small and would have been awesome if it was heated but that was only because we got caught in some really cold weather over Spring Break. We'd definitely stay here again in the summer time! Geoff and Susan were great to work with and very responsive!
