We enjoyed our stay at When Pigs Fly. Convenient location with quick access to the ocean. The private pool was so nice to have. Easy to get to shopping & activities. Great for the adults & children. The two levels allowed for your own space, but enough room on each level for everyone to be together for meals.

We spend couple of days over spring break with friends and family. There was enough space in the house for 15 of us (some young teenager kids). The house was clean, close to the beach, well stocked with everything we needed. We really appreciated all beach equipment and a cart to haul it there. Unfortunately, because it was spring break there was few students parties in the houses nearby and load music on the beach. Of course, this is has nothing to do with this particular house, but with general location – must be popular among students.

This is our third time we've stayed here. We had 12 people rent When Pigs Fly and loved it. Very clean and up to date. We had a problem with the ice maker but maintenance was there within an hour with two bags of ice. Love the location (walking distance to the beach as well as "downtown" area). Our only minor complaint is it would be nice to have hangers in the closets as well as enough towel racks to hang all towels. Would definitely recommend this house.

This property is perfect location if you are willing to stay a quick walk away from the beach. We loved the fact that it was clean and the rental company was attentive to any need that we had. It was perfect for the 2 families that we had. The only complaint (if you want to call it that) was the deck surrounding the pool needs treated to eliminate splinters. Other than that, we would highly recommend this location. It is extremely close to numerous activities and many restaurants. Again, it was perfect for our very active families.

Was very nice to be able to use the pool rafts and beach chairs also. The house was very nice and clean. We all agreed we would come back to When Pigs Fly!

We rented this entire house for a large family group (5 families) as we were attending a wedding in Gulf Shores that weekend. The property description online was accurate as described and it was perfect for our large family. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to a hurricane (we only got to stay 1 night), but the house was comfortable and our short stay was very enjoyable. We did get to walk on the beach a little and play in the pool some. I wish we could have stayed longer. I did purchase the travel insurance, which was a blessing. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone wanting a nice place to stay in Gulf Shores.

We rented the house for 2 weeks. First week was my husband's family, second week my side of the family. We had tiny grandkids so having the balconies fenced AND gated was great. The private pool was also fenced & gated.
A couple issues came up with some leaks but were taken care of very quickly.
Although it was Spring Break we found the kids to extremely polite. Is it that wonderful Southern Culture?
Great home for multiple families!

We had a wonderful stay at When Pigs Fly during Easter week, 2015. Two families shared the unit and it was in a great location, with easy access to the beach and great amenities. The pool was wonderful for the kids, the kitchen was well equipped, the yard area around the pool was great for tossing the football, etc. The house was large enough to accommodate our group nicely (5 adults, 3 teenagers and 3 kids.) There was lots of great porch/deck space and the grill was a great bonus since we ended up cooking most nights. All in all, one of the best spring breaks we've had. We will be back next year!

When we read about the house we were skeptical because we rented a house last summer and we didn't really care for it. However, I have to say the description was right. We all loved it and would love to stay/rent again if we ever decide to go back to Gulf Shores. (We go to a different place every year!) The owners were great and very receptive. The ice machine broke while we were there and they came soon as we told them, and the next morning brought 4 bags of ice for us. (More than enough). The only down side was that the Wi-Fi stopped working so it was difficult for me to communicate with work and the kids to watch Netflix. But we were on vacation and it made me truly on vacation.Lol....

This must be the best home on Gulf Shores. The decor is comfy and not too "beachy", excellent mattresses, well stocked kitchen utensils, new washer/dryer, great pool, lawn and trash service, easy to use keys, wifi, instructions. The home has a wonderful view, large balconies, and a perfect cupola at the top! Sleeps 14 and not once did it feel small or crowded. Dining tables and living room seating was inviting and comfortable. Convenient location with an easy walk to beach and travel carts for your beach items. I never wanted to leave the pool. This is the home I would pick every time.

A group of us rented this house for Labor Day Weekend as a girls trip/ mommy getaway trip and it was FANTASTIC!! The house was very clean and perfect for our group. We had to call maintenance once for a clogged drain and even on a holiday weekend they responded EXTREMELY fast and had it fixed in no time. The location was wonderful and the short walk wasn't terrible for not being directly on the beach.

A few improvements we think would have made the house even better:
-more beach chairs (only 3 at house)
-foam pool floats instead of inflatable kind
-simple pantry items (cooking oil, flour/sugar, spices)

Overall though we were all VERY pleased with the home and can't wait to plan our next girls trip back!

Perfect spot for our extended family getaway!

Our family gathering at "When Pigs Fly" was simply great. We had 9 Adults and 8 kids and everyone loved it. The pool was great for both kids and adults. Being a long and narror pool made it easier to keep track of the little kids.The walk to the beach was only a few minutes and the large white sandy beach was wonderful.The house itself was in wonderful shape and the couple of times we needed something fixed or taken care of the response from management was quick and professional. We had grandparents,chidren,and grandchildren and all loved it.

Excellent-we had ages from under 1 to 64 and it was great. We loved having the pool for after nap/quiet time.

Our overall experience was very good with the property. Rooms were very clean. Kitchens were very well supplied with pots, pans and dishes. When one of the air conditioners stopped working,we called the problem in and witrhin hours, a maintenance man was there to fix the problem temporarily. The unit was then replaced in a timely fashion and worked perfectly the rest of our stay. Only downside, was that the pool really needed to be cleaned several times during the week. The dip nets supplied would not remove the bugs and debris that had accumulated. We would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Gulf Shores.

Great Home Away From Home!!

We have rented many houses in the Gulf Shores area and this is by far the BEST one! The house was very clean and had more amenities that we could have ever imagined! The location is perfect! You are close enough to the Gulf to go hang out on the beach all day and the Bay to go fishing. It is so quiet it is literally like being on your own little island! Susan and Geoff are great to work with! I highly recommend this to everyone that is looking for a great place to stay!!!

Very nice stay

We had a great experience at "Where Pigs Fly." we are planning on returning to Gulf Shores next summer but would maybe like a place closer to the beach, as it is quite a walk with small children. But the house was great and had absolutely every kitchen appliance/utensil that we needed, as we did a lot of cooking and grilling. The house was very clean and overall, we were very pleased!
