We stayed at the home for a week in October. The weather was great and the walks on the beach were so nice. The home is located at the end of the gulf shores strip in a private gated community. We practically had the beach to ourselves. There were only a few others out and about. The beach was beautiful, plenty of room to walk, play, and there were lots of shells to pick up if we wanted too. Beach access is easy. We loved spending time on the decks. We saw dolphins, fish jumping, lots of different birds (even a bald eagle). The guys caught a bunch of fish one afternoon out in the surf. Other days they went to the nearby pier (it goes out 1/4 mile) to fish. There were so many eating places to choose from. Easy access to a couple of nice grocery stores. The community has a nice pool and access to the Little Lagoon. You can see both the beach and the lagoon from the home. If you would rather walk in the neighborhood, it is a good and easy walk. The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is right next door. Also, Fort Morgan. There is plenty to do! We did not have kids with us but there are plenty of things in the area for kids. The home is well furnished (towels were so nice), two kitchens, two laundry areas, upper and lower decks - plus a third deck on the top (accessible via spiral staircase in living room) - the view from up there was just incredible. We had a wonderful stay!

Had a wonderful experience at Tween Waters. Located in an exclusive neighborhood, this beachfront home is perfect for those whole appreciate all the benefits that a private home offers plus a very private and lovely beach. This property has a large furnished deck overlooking the beach which is partially shaded for those who get a little too much sun the first couple of days....like I did! The top perch offers a great view out into the gulf. Bring your binoculars and watch the dolphins swimming by. This home was equipped with all the comforts of home and we really appreciated the comfortable furniture and the ice maker. There are ample beach accessories located in the garage including umbrellas, boogie boards, goggles and floats. There are two charcoal grills in the garage that can be used out front on the driveway. A community pool and pier rounded out our terrific experience. The location is far enough from town to be away from the hustle bustle and traffic yet close enough that you can get to local shopping and restaurants quickly. Andrea was a joy to work with and responded quickly to all messages I sent. It's obvious that she truly wants her guests to have a wonderful stay. Thanks for everything!!!!

5 Stars Plus !! This is our 3rd year at this FABULOUS house !! Perfection at it's finest !! Immaculate when we arrived with so many things provided for our use . We have enjoyed this house with just a few family members to multiple family members and could not be happier. ( Five babies under 3 this year - so we were super excited to see a high chair when we arrived ) :)
Extremely professional communication when booking or if a question arose.
I personally was most impressed when realizing I left a very important item upon departure, the owner responded immediately with her personal attention making sure the item was mailed back to me. This speaks volumes about the owner and how happy we will be to return next year :)
Thank you ! Thank you ! Thank you ! Andrea for playing such an important part in our families forever memories !!
See ya again soon ! :)

Oh my goodness! Where to start! This home is amazing and the view is spectacular!
Our family spent the week here and we couldn't have been more pleased. The location of the home is perfect (in a gated community). It's a quiet, upscale neighborhood but still close to everything. The home itself is great, it was clean, and made our visit so nice. The master bedroom is on the main (2nd) floor, with all other bedrooms on the first floor...and each floor has it's own access to the beach (and most have their own bathrooms).
Did I mention there are TWO kitchens? Yes! One downstairs and one on the main floor. Oh, and downstairs also has its own sitting area. This worked out well since our younger family members like to stay up way past the old folks' (ahem) bedtime. LOL.
The main living area has seating for our whole family and the entire area is open and the back wall is all windows overlooking the beach. I'm telling you...it was awesome. You won't be disappointed.

Another great summer on the Gulf has come to an end. We can always tell we had a great time when all the grand kids ask "When are we coming back?" This house is perfect for the three generations of the family who enjoy it. The youngsters have the lower floor with its full kitchen and TV area and we all enjoy meals upstairs and on the deck. Peace and quiet abound on the beach as only the neighbors populate the shoreline. Already have it booked for next year!!

Tween Waters is the perfect get away and recharge spot for busy families. Tons of room to spread out and chill, from the multiple decks, to the upstairs and downstairs dens and kitchens. Everything is clean and updated throughout. Two washing machines a bonus with beach towels. The whites sands of the private beach melt away any thoughts of the real world you left behind. You must walk down the beach to the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. Breathtaking views and a fun hike when you feel like a bit of exercise. I will definitely be returning! Andrea goes out of her way to ensure your vacation is fabulous!

We stayed at Tween Waters in May and had a fabulous time! The house itself is absolutely beautiful, with views of the gulf on one side and the lagoon on the other. The views are panoramic from the 3rd story room with deck.
The house is very spacious, with good-sized rooms so even a big group never felt crowded. Everything you could want or need is there, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby if you aren’t into cooking (like me), and if you bring the kids, Gulf Shores has all sorts of activities for them.
You can’t go wrong with Tween Waters—we will definitely be back!
