    John E from Ballwin, MO recommends this vacation rental

    The Boathouse was a spacious, clean and bright rental home. It had plenty of space for our family of 4 plus our dog. We all felt very comfortable, loved the master shower and enjoyed the rooftop deck every morning and evening.
    The bbq grill needs some attention. It is unsafe to cook anything due to all the rust. We enjoyed dinner at the Sassy Bass and visited many of the local restaurants. It was a great vacation home!

    • Manager Responded on 6/14/2017

      Yay! We love to hear that!! Hate that about the grill, but we don't require our owners to have a grill on the property and often a guest will buy a cheap one in town and bring it out. We do tell our guests when they call that there isn't a guarantee they will have one. Thank you for staying with us!

    Loved the location. The house was great, one of the nicest vacation homes we've ever stayed in. The house was very cleaned and neat. And it's only located about 20 minutes from Gulf Shores. Loved watching the sunset on the bay.

    The view was beautiful from the rooftop deck. House was spotless and very well kept.
    Would love to see the brush cleaned up around the property.
    ALso, the channel selection for the tv was terrible.

    • Manager Responded on 11/23/2016

      We love the rooftop deck at Boathouse also. Its so big and wraps around to get view from every direction. We are very happy to hear you loved it. It is definitely a great place to have your morning coffee and relax or enjoy a beautiful sunset. We hope to see you again soon.

    a guest from Rockport, Indiana recommends this vacation rental

    House was very nice. Loved the patios and rooftop views. Loved all the room. Needed to have the lawn mowed. Didn't like all the tall grass around the house. The alligator sign is a little scary when you first see it. Too close to other house. Glad nobody was in the house beside us, wouldn't have privacy when out on rooftop or patio. View of bay was nice but too close to the road and not a good view of gulf.

    • Manager Responded on 10/3/2016

      Thank you for the review! Due to the incident in Disney, we wanted to learn from their mistake. This area does have one or two gators so we wanted to be extra cautious on our guests behalf.

    Very enjoyable! I would only suggest that the yard surrounding the driveway and covered parking be mowed.
    The weeds were so high and stickers growing across the
    driveway were inadvertently stepped on. Ouch!

    • Manager Responded on 10/12/2016

      Oooppps... Sorry for the sticker! We will definitely encourage the owner of the property to cut the grass.

    David W from Ft. Payne, Alabama recommends this vacation rental

    We just moved from Georgia (northwest of ATL.) to Ft. Payne, AL. last summer and have been working hard to get settled in. We really needed a 'mental health' break at the beach. Having never stayed in the Gulf Shores area, we didn't know what to expect. The Boat House was one of the few places we could find that was pet friendly on rather short notice. It was clean, comfortable and far enough away from the congestion of the 'main drag' of Gulf Shores. We would have liked to be a little closer to the shore, but it was only a short walk to beautiful white sand (and we needed the exercise). Over all it was a very pleasant experience.

    • Manager Responded on 7/2/2016

      We are so glad you choose us as your mental health recovery center!! We like to think we offer a great little escape from reality. We hope you will return soon!

    • Manager Responded on 6/18/2016

      Doesn't Boathouse just rock?!?! It's such a distinctive house. The owner is a local builder who has built or worked on hundreds of homes in our area so he knew exactly what type of home to build for our guests! We hope you can come back and stay with us again very soon!

    The Boathouse was great. It had just what we needed and plenty of space. The views from the Boathouse were awesome. We loved watching the different types of birds coming into the bay from the rooftop. We will definitely be staying here again. It was nice and quiet to be away from the crowded beaches of gulf shores, but still be close enough to town to go and eat and do the amusement things. Our dog loved it too! She enjoyed walking out on the roof and looking around.

    I am very please with my rental. The living and kitchen areas are very spacious. There is plenty of room for you and your pups. There is a little strip of beach on the back bay you can walk to in one minute from this house. Beautiful sunsets and a top roof deck to view the stars.

    • Manager Responded on 2/15/2016

      Thank you for taking time to review your stay with Sunset Properties in Boathouse. So glad you were pleased with the property and that you enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and star gazing from the rooftop deck. Boathouse is the perfect property for enjoying all of the beauty of both the Bay and the beach. We hope you will call us soon to book your next stay with us in Boathouse. Sunset Properties Staff

    Nancy C from Paducah, KY recommends this vacation rental

    This is an incredible house, quite unique in design (shaped like a boat!)and beautiful inside and out; extremely comfortable and beautiful interior design (well chosen original art on the walls). Boathouse is on the bay and has direct access to the bay. The Gulf of Mexico beach is across the street, a very easy stroll, within two blocks walking distance from the Boathouse.The rooftop deck on Boathouse is stunning and huge; there is a wide staircase to access the rooftop deck. You can see both bay and the gulf beaches from the rooftop deck. There are also two decks on the main floor, one is attached to the great room (kitchen, dining, living room) and one off of the master bedroom. It was so quiet and peaceful in Boathouse during our stay; we could hear the sounds of nature and not much traffic or people talking or partying. Part of the reason is the location; Boathouse is about two miles from Fort Morgan at the end of the Gulf Shores peninsula. The other thing is that we went at the beginning of November. All in all, we had the most wonderful wedding anniversary ever and would stay here again. The only recommendation is to make sure that you bring some beach chairs for the rooftop deck as there is no furniture up there. The other is to bring plenty of summer clothes, even in the Fall. We stayed six nights and had perfect, high 70's to mid 80 degree weather the entire time of our stay. We appreciate the owners of the Boathouse for letting us rent their gorgeous house and Sunset Properties for great customer service.

    • Manager Responded on 12/14/2015

      Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us in The Boathouse. From the sound of it you enjoyed the perfect getaway in this unique house on the bay. Perfect weather for relaxing and enjoying our little hidden paradise. We have let the owner know about the lack of furniture on the rooftop deck and hopefully their will be comfortable seating the next time you visit us at The Boathouse. Please call or go online to book your next stay with us soon. Sunset Properties Staff

    Nice place, could have used a little more outdoor furniture. Great views, loved seeing the dolphins play in the morning just outside the balcony. Enjoyed going to the beach, shrimp fest, good food and drink and great friends. Liked that it was a little off the beat and path.

    • Manager Responded on 11/23/2015

      Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us in Boathouse. A very unique property with an awesome view.

    a guest from Wetumpka, AL recommends this vacation rental

    Boathouse has a great view of the bay and only a couple hundred yards from the Gulf beach public access. The property is new and has a nicely appointed kitchen for preparing meals. The master bedroom was comfy and has a large double shower. Second bedroom is spacious and has it's own semi-private bath. The sunsets are nice off the wrap around deck or watch the stars come out from the roof top. The furnishings are an eclectic collection of new and old "marche aux puces" finds with a definite beach theme and appears to be built as a flip-sale home. As with most homes in the Ft. Morgan area, they are build with minimal lot lines, but this home does offer some privacy from your neighbor. Although it's only a two bedroom, it lives much larger than it's size with a spacious patio/garage area for grilling and a full home sq. footage footprint on the roof deck. You're just a couple miles from Ft. Morgan Park and the ferry to Dauphin Island/Mobile. The area is bike friendly for adult cycling and offers a 4 foot lane on most of the highway near the property. I did not give this property 5 stars for cleanliness as the floors were a bit sandy, had pet hair on and some of the furniture (despite the NO pets), some trash left in the kitchen and a few insect issues. Bottom line: I would consider renting the property again.
