Description

Orion Beach House offers the true essence of Gulf Shores--a relaxing environment surrounded by the beauty of the beach and Little Lagoon. Enjoy panoramic Gulf Shores views including the Gulf beach at Lagoon Pass, and Little Lagoon with spectacular sunrises and sunsets from 270 degree decks.

We love the reaction we get when people arrive and see the amazing waterfront views from porches on three sides of the house. You'll find breathtaking sunsets, mornings watching the heron, fishing right from the porch.

You'll be as pleased with the interiors as with the wonderful views! While Orion is available as a vacation rental for parts of the year, this is a private home so it has all of the comforts of home from a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable linens to floats to enjoy in the lagoon and a good grill.

Orion offers the best of our sugar-white Gulf beach (just steps away!) and the good fishing, small boating and relaxing atmosphere of Little Lagoon right from the waterfront decks and yard. You also have a Private Hot Tub, a Pier and a Boat Launch. You'll feel like you are away from it all but you are just minutes from Gulf Shores array of restaurants, shops and attractions.

This Gulf Shores beach house benefits from quiet and safe lagoon side location and ocean views. A 100 yd walk puts you at the beach. Good fishing, right from the deck or the pier we share with neighbors. Bring a small boat or jet ski and pull it up right behind the house. Access the Gulf through Lagoon Pass and you have instant access to the Gulf of Mexico and sea fishing.

You'll have plenty of room to spread out with 4 Bedrooms including a king master on the first floor, a queen bedroom on the second floor, and a king bedroom with a pair of twin beds. There is also a loft bedroom with daybed and trundle (and its own tv/dvd and Playstation 2), a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, and a private alcove with a twin bed. The house comfortably sleeps up to 10-13 guests.

This beautifully and comfortably appointed family beach home has new furnishings, linens and towels. A must for anyone with children, the loft has a PlayStation 2, complete with games and you'll find flat screen TV's + DVD and Direct TV in every bedroom, and Wifi and Ipod access.

Fully equipped, up to date kitchen is a joy for anyone who loves to create the finest cuisine that Gulf Shores has to offer. Orion has zoned 1st & 2nd story air-conditioners, ceiling fans throughout, and parking for 6 cars.

Great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with 3 levels of decks, a hot tub with amazing views, a swing, a hammock, a waterfront deck with lounge chairs, a fish cleaning sink, outside shower and more. Enjoy wonderful family BBQ's on the deck with comfortable outdoor dining for 10 people, and a Weber charcoal Grill. Pull your boat up right beside the house or to the pier next to the house. Rent a pontoon boat for a day or kayaks for a week.

For those wishing to escape the harsh winters, come and relax in a family home close to all the local amenities. West Beach Boulevard, approximately 3 miles from Highway 59 and all the amenities and shopping therein.

Watch the sunset with the heron and pelicans drawn to the fish rich bayou. There is nothing better than enjoying a day of sun, sand and surf then relaxing and watching the stars from the decks at Orion!

Come enjoy the best of Gulf Shores at Orion.

We had a wonderful stay. There were 7 adults and a baby with room to spare. The house was very nice and as described in the listing. The house is 3 stories, living room, kitchen, laundry,1/2 bath and master. The 3rd floor has two bedrooms, 2 baths and a loft, there is another bed up where the dormer window is at that requires another set of stairs, it is very hot up there but in cooler weather I can imagine a kid thinking it is cool. The kitchen could have used a better selection of pots and pans. We cooked for every meal so the pot and pan issue was a pain. The deck was very nice and some of our family used the fishing polls and crab trap several times. The back of the house is on the lagoon, not swimming water in my opinion, the front faces the inlet. If you have little ones or bring a lot of stuff down to the beach, you will want to drive over. It is actually across the street and down about 1/2 a block but carrying a lot of stuff would have been too much. Parking was $5 cash or debit. We went to the beach everyday and we did try the inlet because we saw so many people with little kids in there. We thought the calmer water would be nice with a baby. Be warned that the water in the inlet smells so bad, like rotten eggs. I'm not sure why it smelled that way but we had to wash all our swim wear and towels because they smelled so bad. In all we had a great time. We did not go out except to run to public for grocery items. There are lots of shops, mostly tourist stuff but there are plenty. We ate breakfast out the day we left. We went to the brick and spoon about 20 minutes away. It was jam packed but we needed gluten free options so it was worth the wait. This was our first time in the gulf shores area and we really enjoyed it. I think next year we will rent a house directly on the ocean. In all it was a wonderful trip.

My family of 11 stayed at the Orion home in August. Of the 11, 5 were children. We took our kayaks and the kids were able to paddle around the Lagoon (with no worries because the water was shallow in most areas) and fish off the lower deck of the home. We could walk under the bridge and be at the beach in less than 5 minutes. The location of the home was in the more residential area, not a lot of commercial buildings around. Only drawback is that the way the bedrooms are set up, not a lot of privacy.

This was a 3 family stay. 3 couples and and 3 college age children. House was beautiful and the location on Little Lagoon was fantastic. Only 100 yards from the beach. Kitchen was fully stocked with utensils which made cooking in most days the best choice. Only wished I had looked at my e-mails while there to see the beach / kayak rentals were an option.

The house was clean and well appointed. It was certainly large enough and made for a comfortable stay. You really can't beat this location! We contacted the rental company once because we really didn't know how to work the hot tub... wow, they were right on top of it!!!! .... friendly, fast, professional all around. it's not a place for elderly due to the amount of stairs but great for a big family.

We have been coming to Gulf Shores for over 25 years. This was our first time staying in a lagoon facing property, and we loved it! We had easy access to the beach and the kids had fun fishing off of the pier next door. This house has water views from almost every window. Our favorite spot was on the back deck, where we watched the sun set every night. I would definitely stay here again!

This house was perfect for our 3 families. We had 9 people and we all had a comfortable place to sleep. The house was within easy walking distance to the beach, had 2 great decks for enjoying weather and anything else we could of asked for. We enjoyed the birds, the fishing, crabbing, BBQ and easy access to was very quiet and offered a great view of Little Lagoon. We would highly recommend this great house. The Management company was great and was very responsive.

The house was appropriately described in the review; no hidden issues. It is located in a cul-de-sac that provides a quiet atmosphere to relax. My wife and I would relax on the back porch in the morning, drink coffee, and watch the birds dive in the water to try to catch fish.

This house is so beautiful and located in the most gorgeous location. The porches on each level make for peaceful views. We spent a lot of our time hanging out on the deck looking out at the water. The beach is so close -- best of both worlds. The house was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities we needed. If you want a quiet vacation away -- this is the perfect spot! 7 days went by so fast!

We had two families of four staying at the Orion House and we fit perfectly. The house is situated perfectly: lagoon access on the back; and a short (1 min) walk to the gulf on the front. Additionally, the lot is on a cul de sac so traffic is minimal. We rented 4 sea kayaks so the lagoon side was perfect for boat launches. As well, we fished off of the back deck almost every evening (lots of little fish) and threw in the crab pot for fun (only 2 large crabs - but they were cool to look at).

As mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen has nearly every item you could think of (and several others that you were not thinking of). There is also a charcoal grill on the upper patio which we used almost every evening and it comes with very serviceable grilling utensils.

We had intentions of eating at local restaurants each day but found S&S Seafood (~1 mile away) to be too good to pass up. 3-4 times we picked up raw seafood (mostly shrimp) and cooked them on the grill or steamed them. S&S isn't fancy but the shrimp are amazing. Plus, drinks are a lot cheaper at home and everyone can relax and not worry about driving home. We also caught a ton of fish on a charter trip () and had mahi mahi and snapper on the grill. Unbelievable. We also went fishing at the pier several times which was great: hammerhead sharks; bull sharks; jumping sharks - and lots of fish (you can buy equipment there for what you expect to rent equipment: $50).

While we appreciated the huge TV and Direct TV, we only had it on for ~20 minutes the entire week (pleasantly). Overall, this was a great trip and everybody (ages 12-50) had a great time.

Our family of 12 (6 adults, 6 children, ages 5-13)had an enjoyable, relaxing stay at beautiful Orion! Plenty of room for all of us. While the children couldn't get enough of the ocean, the adults LOVED the peacefulness of Orion's upper and lower decks facing the lagoon. Beautiful sunsets and opportunities to observe wildlife. Big favorites on the lower deck were the hot tub and hammock. We hated to leave this paradise!

We really enjoyed our stay here at the Orion Beach House The House has a great location right across from the beach and the lagoon behind was perfect for the Kayaks. The Kitchen is equipped with all amenities and makes dining in easy. Thanks for sharing your home it was lovely.

great homoe

Manager response on 2014-12-03 - Response from Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals, Inc
This guest was pleased with the house, but apparently did not love their experience with us. We hope if you need anything before, during, or after your stay you'll let us know.

Great Visit!

There were 8 of us in the house and there was plenty of room. We have rented many houses and this one was one of the most well-equipped. The lagoon had a lot of wildlife and the kids loved it. Not too far of a walk to the Gulf. Our dryer broke in the middle of our trip and they were out to fix it within an hour. Great service and everything was as promised. Wonderful stay!

Great place

Despite the unseasonably cold weather, we had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores. The home was comfortable, clean, and was perfect for our party of 4 adults. Groceries, liquor, and all our shopping needs were just minutes away. Restaurants were plentiful and we enjoyed the local seafood many times. As golfers, our course was only 12 minutes away and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We spent the sunny days on our numerous decks and enjoyed the hot tub almost every evening. The beaches are pristine and well maintained--we would love to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the ocean. Overall, we found the locals most welcoming, polite, and very helpful--a far cry from our visits to Florida. We have booked again for next Winter as we just loved the overall feel of the location and the Southern hospitality. We're counting down the days till our next visit.

Great Views
