Beaches - Pool - Lagoon - Fishing docks - Boat Launch - BBQ Area

This condo is a townhouse (1,300 square feet) with the bedrooms (2) on the second floor, both with full bathrooms and their own balconies (master balcony overlooks the lagoon, guest bedroom balcony has view of the Gulf of Mexico). Condo has 3 private balconies in all.

The main floor has the kitchen, pantry, half-bath, laundry, dining room that seats 6, and living room with two sofas (one is a fold-out sofa bed), 42 inch TV, and balcony that overlooks Little Lagoon! The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the appliances, cookware and dishes you will need to prepare meals during your vacation.

Guests have access to owner's closet in carport to use (beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, floats, beach cart) and store personal gear (beach, fishing, or other).

The complex has a swimming pool, private beach access (100 yards from condo across a non-busy street), a fishing pier, and a fish cleaning station, gazebo with grilling area. There is free covered parking for two cars, as well as additional guest spaces.

Summer House West is a small, quaint complex with a total of 32 units. It has 3 buildings and our unit is in the back building directly on Little Lagoon!

*Please note as this is a small complex, there is no elevator, only stairs. Our condo is on the second floor.

Located in the West Beach area of Gulf Shores, Summer House West is 3.5 miles from the heart of Gulf Shores--The Hangout and the "T" and a 15-minute drive to the Orange Beach area.

Gorgeous Little Lagoon Pass is just a 0.5 mile away!

We are close enough for convenience, but far enough for getting away from it all!

Free wifi provided.

Please let us know if you have questions or how we can help you plan your trip to Gulf Shores!

About Owner

About Carrie and Robert Burns

About Carrie and Robert Burns- Our family fell in love with the Gulf Shores area over a couple of years visiting. We enjoy exploring new areas, but Gulf Shores kept calling us back! We enjoy vacation time that offers a little bit of everything-water sports, nature, local spots for food and drink, good people to share the time, shelling, walking and relaxing on the beach, entertainment for kids that doesn't break the bank, amazing sunsets to cap off the day, and a comfortable place to call home for the week! We found all of that and more here at Summer House West! It's our pleasure to share this spot with you. We hope you make as many memories as we have!

Carrie and Robert Burns purchased this condo in 2017- Why- Carrie and Robert Burns chose Gulf Shores We love Summer House West! We were drawn to the location because, for us, it is in the best spot in the Gulf Shores area--away from the crowds, but close enough for convenience and fun. We love being on the water, nestled between the lagoon and the Gulf - it truly is the best of both worlds! Summer House West has a laid back, cozy feel. We know friends and family and guests will find it as warm and inviting as we do! Enjoy!

Gulf Shores is a city on Alabama's Gulf Coast. Its Gulf State Park has beaches, trails and a pier, plus a golf course and a zip line over the dunes. To the west, sea turtles and migratory birds thrive among the coastal habitats of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Farther west, 19th-century Fort Morgan guards Mobile Bay. The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo offers hands-on encounters with lemurs, kangaroos and sloths.

This condo really has it all! The location is so convenient, and all the necessities are there. Great, helpful communication from Carrie too. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is, or what a stellar host Carrie is. Great experience all around.

Carrie was very responsive and helpful during our stay. We enjoyed spending mornings on the lagoon and afternoons on the beach. The location worked great for us - not too busy or too far the action.

Beach + Lagoon = Vacation! Directly on Lagoon, steps to Gulf! 3 Balconies!

Great quiet location. Away from the hustle and bustle of town but still close enough to everything. Lagoon in back and quiet easily crossed road to the beach. House was very nice and clean. It was like a home away from home.

Beach + Lagoon = Vacation! Directly on Lagoon, steps to Gulf! 3 Balconies!

The place was great for my family. It was the best of both worlds, and allowed us to enjoy the beach as well the serenity of the Lagoon. It had everything that we needed, and provided plenty of space for my 5 person family. We will certainly rent again!

Beach + Lagoon = Vacation! Directly on Lagoon, steps to Gulf! 3 Balconies!

This place is a real gem. It is perfectly located. It sits right on a beautiful lagoon. We loved watching the cranes and pelicans on the lagoon. It takes less than 5 minutes to get to the gorgeous white sand beaches. Carrie is an excellent host. She responds to emails and texts with in minutes and was quick to resolve any questions we had. We had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay. I highly recommend staying here and we will definitely rent again, hopefully for a longer stay. Thanks Carrie!

Beautiful views and convenient to everything!

The condo was very nice and updated. It had plenty of space for what we needed. It is right on the lagoon and steps from the beach with beautiful views of both! It is on a more quiet end of the beach but still convenient to restaurants and shopping. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend this condo to family and friends.

Immaculate condo with great views!

We stayed at this property during spring break 2018. We found the condo to be super clean, comfortable and provide excellent views from the balconies. There is ample sleeping space as well. I will say, the stairs up to the condo could be trying for an elderly person or someone with health issues. Overall, we thought the condo was great, the owners were fantastic to work and we would stay here again.
