Earthy and eclectic A two story Beachhouse on pilings, decor of Dolphins, Mermaids and all things Nautical! Outside you'll be looking across a jungle of tropical plants & pond to see the water. a short walk & you start the day with a swim in the bay as dolphins swim very nearby, or sit in the moonlight and listen to them blow as you fish from the dock.Charter marina, excellent food and nightly entertainment next door. At sunset the yard comes alive with colorful lights&fountain, fairies, gnomes

The space
Stay where the Locals live! Check in with a hand shake, check out with a hug! This house is almost 30 years old..It's not perfect, but it's clean and filled with lots of Love! Sometimes check in includes a Island snack & Tropical cocktail. The first floor of this 2story home on pilings is yours, I live in the top floor, so we will be entering thru the same front door and first balcony, and living room. Your area is cooled with brand new, remote-controlled air conditioning window units , I find this allows you the option to make your room colder than the living room if you desire so you can make adjustments for your individual comfort level. Your room is completely private with small refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffee pot (unless you request I do a touch up clean after a day at the beach), bathroom also is completely private. Kitchen, dining, and living room are shared.. Although I only walk through living and dining, but do use the kitchen for coffee mostly unless I'm cooking for everyone! Swim and fish nearby and watch my Dolphin friends, along with Unforgettable nightly sunsets! A great restaurant is right next door with nightly entertainment that ends at 10 p.m., walk the docks and view the boats. Stop and drop here if you like, you never have to leave with a small food and souvenir store minutes away. Sailing, fishing, boat and jet ski rentals are right next door! This is the most friendliest, oldest and safest neighborhood in Orange Beach! Your chance to experience living like a local with Captain Lori.. if you dare! I aim to please, so let me know if there's anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable! I work several jobs and can sometimes maybe hardly be seen, but I always make time for my guest! I raised my children here, so yours are welcome too! Promise.. you will enjoy your stay, if something is less than what you expected PLEASE let me know! It is my goal to get five stars from everyone that stays here!
Here on the island we have a very unusual septic system, so please no hair or strings of any sort down the drain! It tends to shut down our plumbing! Female toiletries may be placed in the trash in the bathroom just request and I will change that daily! I try to recycle, so outside the front door to your left there will be a large white bucket for all of your paper and plastic Goods. You will be given the combination to get into the door on arrival, please do not lock the door knob itself only the deadbolt! If you're leaving for the day please adjust your air conditioner such it's remote-controlled and you can actually set it to turn back on at a particular time so that energy is not being wasted. As you walk in and you will see to your left under the house there is beach toys skimboards umbrellas fishing poles, everything needed for the beach! make yourself at home to these articles . In the bathroom you will also find several hygienic supplies those are for you as well if needed ! The only one rule here is have a great time and let me know if you need anything I hope that you leave wanting to give a 5-star rating!
Note : there is no Wi-fi here it simply does not work well as it gets overloaded. There is a TV with local channels, a DVD player and movies that you're welcome to use. If need be you can check with your carrier and generally get unlimited data for your travel time generally for about $30 with so much to do nearby few people really wish to watch the TV!

Guest access
Balcony with tropical garden and water view, sit on the couch where Lynyrd Skynyrd did! shared living, dining and kitchen. Private bedroom & bathroom. There is no Wi-fi here, it's simply just does not work well as it gets too overloaded. There's a TV in the living room with local channels and DVD player and some movies that are at your disposal. If you need check with your carrier you can generally get unlimited data while on vacation for roughly $30 a month and then hotspot for your needs!

During your stay
Visit with your host Captain Lori, or have complete private time alone! I enter through the same door as you but generally go straight up to my living area upstairs to care for my canine companions Halo and Tessa. Call or text me for anything you need, I'm always available to you... maybe a recommendation of where is best to eat, best places to shop and attractions that are a must! Learn everything Local.. from a long time local!
