A covered staircase leads you to the two level-spacious open floor plan in Gulf Shores, AL. The location is ideal with it being in Laguna Key, a quiet, gated community. The community has the best of both worlds with the lagoon on the north side and the Beach on the south side. Explore the lagoon while kayaking. Enjoy the community resort style pool, tennis court, and fishing pier only steps away. Soak up the tranquility that the peaceful, Bon Secour Wildlife preserve offers right next door. This brand new, beautifully furnished beach home boasts two King sweets, a queen suite, and three queen beds in the kids room. Each bedroom has its own private full bath. Gather around for a scrumptious meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Don't forget about the outdoor grill, 2 laundry rooms, many flat screen TV's, and beach supplies to use on your trip. You can enjoy your morning coffee on one of the many outdoor balconies while overlooking the peaceful lagoon. This house is not childproof, but children are more than welcome to stay and will need supervised at all times. This is a great place to make lasting memories for families and friends!

During the day there are endless attractions nearby including: 22 miles of white sandy beaches, canoeing, a fishing pier, shopping, go-karts, golfing, kayaking, the zoo, Gulf Shores State Park, charter boats, and a waterpark. Don't forget to take a evening cruise and catch some dolphins playing in their natural habitat. Check out some music in the evenings at many local restaurants, bars, or the unforgettable FLORA-BAMA performance by Jack.

LOOK AT ME!! HIDDEN GEM!
Callista is my home away from home!

This house is absolutely awesome! We have stayed in Gulf Shores for many years and this house has everything! My favorite parts of the house are the kitchen with a big ice maker, a washer and dryer on each level and the privacy that the community offers. I feel like my kids are safe and the community pool is so convenient. The private beach is just a short walk. We love it!

Family of 11 vacay

My 4th time staying at Callista. This time we brought our kids and their families. 6 adults and 5 young kids. So much space. We didn't feel crowded at all. Everyone loved the porches and swings. The kids loved that they had their own bedroon with a bathroom and TV! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to fix meals for our crew. Having 2 washers and dryers was amazing with 11 people. The ice machine was awesome for filling our coolers. Not having to bring beach carts and chairs was very nice. Lots of beach toys were there for the kids. The owners respond immediately if you have questions or issues. We definitely want to make this an annual family vacay. My husband and I will be back down soon!

Home away from Home

We enjoyed our stay so much. Callista is a beautiful home that truly made us feel like we were home away from home for the week. It is warm and cozy and provided all our needs. Easy access to the beach and pool , the neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful, the garage is full of beach goodies and when we weren’t in the water we were enjoying the kitchen and family time in the l living room. We loved all the big windows and Our girls spent so much time swinging on the patio. We look forward to staying here again.

Perfect family vacation rental!

We stayed at Callista this past week with our family and had the best time! The house was very clean on arrival and the kitchen was well stocked for preparing meals. We thought the location was perfect. Just a short walk to the private beach and having access to the community pool was nice. We liked being a little further away from the busy main strip. We’d love to come back and stay at Callista again next year!

Perfect beach vacation!!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!!
The house was absolutely perfect for our two family vacation. Very spacious, beautifully decorated, & the kids loved the huge bunk room!!
The house was fully stocked with everything you need, from the kitchen to the bathrooms! Plus lots of towels! The ice maker was a game changer also! All the beach gear, toys, chairs, wagons & kayaks were definitely a lifesaver (coming from an overpacker to begin with)
The privacy & security is worth every penny!
The house is situated steps away from the pool & tennis court. The beach not far the other way!
Lastly, Steph was amazing to deal with! Since it’s their own house, the hospitality & actual care was awesome! She sent an app to download before you arrive with mapped out activities & restaurants with her own reviews!! She even noted who delivered pizza to the house, which we took full advantage of the first night!!
Will definitely be back & tell everyone we know!!

Favorite place

This is our third time staying here in a little over a year. I almost hate to leave a good review because I want Callista available when I want to come. The hosts are very accomidating. A beautiful home in a quiet subdivision. Everything you could think of is provided...beach towels, coolers, beach wagons, beach chairs, many beach toys. There are 2 washer and dryers in the house, an ice machine to fill coolers, 4 balconies with beautiful views, kayaks and so much more. The kitchen if fully stocked with anything you might need. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on. I am looking forward to my next stay there in July!

WOW!!!

I am late in giving this review, but let me just tell whomever is looking into renting this property.....you will NOT be disappointed! This is one of the nicest places me and my family have ever stayed at! The house was wonderful, and I can't say enough about it! All of the windows, the lighting, the decorations, the furnished kitchen/ice maker, the porches/swings, the kayaks, the covered parking, the gated community and so much more!!!! 10 of us stayed in the home were extremely comfortable. Everyone had their own space and private bathrooms to go to at night, and the beds were AMAZING!!! I loved the sheets so much that I ordered me a set off of Amazon while we were there so I could have a little piece of the beach house with me when I went home, lol. Stephanie was so great to work with! Thank you guys so much for sharing a little piece of your paradise with us! We will definitely be back!

Amazing

Our family meet at this beautiful property for Spring break 2022. We made so many memories and felt so at home during our stay. In fact on our way back to Illinois, we booked our 2023 Spring break trip. I can’t Even begin to tell you how wonderfully equipped this home is. Everything we could have possibly wanted our needed was available and right at our fingertips. Giving Stephanie and Justin a 5+ stars for allowing us to rent this gem.
