Alabama may only have 60 miles of coastline to its name, but those miles are packed with attractions that make it a beach lover’s paradise on the Gulf of Mexico. Broken up by coastal bays, rivers, and bayous, the shoreline is dotted with pastel-colored beach houses perched on bird-like legs over the sand. Young families stroll to long swatches of white sand divided by patches of beach grass swaying in the breeze—and then down the street a few paces to restaurants serving fish pulled from the Gulf that very morning. Experience it all—and so much more—from our Gulf Shores vacation rentals.
Like any self-respecting beach resort town, Gulf Shores is more than just the place where water meets Alabama land. It’s also full of classic beachside attractions. Stuff yourself to the gills with cotton candy and popcorn, and hit the Ferris Wheel at the Wharf. Time it right, and you could catch a sherbet-colored sunset from a completely new angle up in the air. Of course, snatching up the right tee time could bring a whole new level of Zen to your swing, too.
There are many ways to enjoy this place, from homes in resort-like beach communities to fishing camps with angler-tempting piers that stretch out over the water. Of course, you could trade those beachfront views for views of the beach itself from an offshore rental at Classic Yacht Rentals at FloraBama. You won’t just be living like a local—you’ll also be living like a sea captain in surprisingly spacious quarters as you fall asleep to the gentle rocking of the current.
Could you stay at a Gulf Shores hotel and have a great time? Of course. But book one of our short-term rentals and you’ll get to see it all from the eyes of a local from your sweet home in Alabama.
