Description

MORE PHOTOS COMING SOON!!

Perfectly located on Shoal Creek at the mouth of Wilson Lake, you will find no other like this. With 250' of waist deep water along the seawall that gradually deepens for swimming and fishing, and a large leveled ground with no slopes or steep steps to the water, people of all ages can enjoy themselves wading in the lake while enjoying the company of others on the bank.

We are confident that you will enjoy your time at our totally renovated and updated Shoal Creek Gibbons Home. We are located minutes from town, however you will feel as though you are in your own little world.

If you do decide to venture out on the town for a bit or to tour the beautiful places that Florence and the Shoals area has to offer, you will be pleasantly surprised to find everything and every place within minutes of the house.

We have tried our best to make our home as comfortable and homey for others as we prefer for ourselves. Most any amenity that you may need or want is available.

Having two kitchens, plenty of seating, and an open gathering area, our home is not only great for family outings, fishermen getaways, and vacations but also perfect for wedding receptions, family reunions, baby showers, business meetings, small wedding ceremonies, youth group outings, bridal showers, etc. We will also consider monthly corporate/business stays. Nightly rates/cleaning fees may be increased with larger groups.

Additional Property Information

The most unique benefit of our home is most definitely its close proximity to the water. The house is literally inches from the water on flat ground! Another specialty would be the near distance to all restaurants, shopping centers, and many attractions that Florence and The Shoals has to offer! And we must not forget the fish - OH, THE FISH! - Many bass, catfish and others...a/k/a: THE BIG ONE...have been reeled in at the house over the years!

About Owner

About Bobby & Angela Hendrix

We are just a couple of the many family members that have enjoyed this special home on Shoal Creek. Keeping with the open house feel that we have all always known and loved, we made the decision to let others enjoy it too!

Family & Pet Friendly Home Florence AL on Wilson Lake- optional Guest House
Clean, beautiful, private yet close to it all!

This house looks as beautiful as the photos online. It's super clean and very roomy! As stated in previous reviews, anything and everything you could want or need is here.

Angela was very quick to respond to my inquiry and any other questions I had before my stay. She really knows how to make you feel as though your needs are the most important, other VRBO owners could learn a thing or two from her! I felt as though we were old friends after our first conversation. She even went so far as to include a welcome basket!!

From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are at home! The house is warm and inviting with gorgeous view from almost every room! The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean with tons of extra blankets and pillows if you should need any. There is an electric fireplace in the master bedroom and both living rooms, nice touch. The yard is very pretty and well manicured. This house is just minutes away from shopping and restaurants and yet it's so private.

I would like to point something out that I don't think I read anywhere else. The back part of the house has a separate living room, kitchen, bed and bathroom. While it is mentioned that there is a separate living and kitchen area, I don't see where it ever says that you can actually close that part off with a door! I loved that feature. We didn't need it this time but it's perfect if you travel with another couple or older/adult children. You can spend your days together and in the evening you can have some "away/alone" time from each other. So you basically have a whole other house that can be separated by closing the door!!

I can't say enough about this house or the owners! From start to finish the house is fantastic and so are Angela and Bobby. Thanks for making such a great place available. I hope to return soon!

Perfection and Convenience on the Water

If anyone is entertaining the idea of choosing The Gibbons Home on Shoal Creek for a little R&R, a venue, a ceremony, or any other reason, you have made a great decision. The owners, Bobby and Angela Hendrix could describe the amenities that this home has for an hour and still come up short. Really, all that you would need is your clothes and a toothbrush; everything else that you might want or need is there on the premises. We had a small ceremony there and had between 50-60 people, and this home was the perfect choice. If you are looking for a place that is meticulously cared for and has all the creature features that one could want, this is the place for you and yours. I would highly recommend this home away from home. Bobby and Angela will treat you like family.....because they care.

Perfection and Convenience

If people that are entertaining the idea of staying at the Shoal Creek Gibbons home for any reason; a celebration, a reunion, small ceremonies, or simply just to get away for fun and relaxation, you will not be disappointed . The owners, Angela and Bobby could describe the amenities that this home has to offer for an hour, but, it would come up short to what this serene home has to offer its lucky inhabitants that chose it as their haven for a few days. Really, all that you would need is your clothes and a toothbrush......everything else that you could possibly need or want is there. This home is meticulously cared for, and I would highly recommend The Shoal Creek Gibbons Home . Bobby and Angela will treat you like family.

Incredible Value! - TRUE Southern Hospitality!

We have been renting vacation properties for over 30 years. This without question was the TOP experience we have ever had!

The owners do an excellent job with marketing this property. They covered so much, and offered so many assurances, that to tell the truth we thought that there was no way they could deliver everything they promised. We were wrong. They totally came through with everything promised in their emails as well as what was listed on their web site. (Shoal Creek Gibbons Home . com - without the spaces of course.)

Everything we could think to ask, they had already addressed on their website. We have never rented a property that was so TOTALLY equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay there. For example, not only did they have 3 different grills available (all working) for you to choose from, they even had a spare gas bottle sitting there ready to go in case one ran out!

The house was spotlessly clean, and everything was up to date and in full working order. They even had complete stocks of cleaning supplies, not just starters like some properties provide.

We have never dealt with a more gracious host. We were there for a very special occasion to lift the spirits of a dear friend suffering with battling cancer. I had mentioned this in passing during making the reservations. When we arrived, there was a basket of goodies on the counter along with a hand-written note and a very special gift offering empathy and support and for our friend. That kind of love and outgoing care for us as their guest in their property characterized the entire experience.

This home is located on a small inlet just off the creek. To the left, is the end of the line, but oh to the right....!!!!! You are right there on the main waterway, next to a major marina. It is far enough from the traffic channel for it to not bother you, but close enough that one time our crew dove into the water and swam back to the private dock!

We brought along a small pontoon boat (20') for use. Angela was afraid that it would not fit in the covered lift. It did, but with only about 12 inches all around to spare. If you have a larger boat, you will have to tie it alongside the dock.

I won't try to relist everything that the property has to offer. Just check out their website, or give them a call.

I just hope that I have conveyed to you how totally professional, gracious, hospitable, - basically Christian - the owners are.

Rent this place.

Fantastic home on Wilson Lake--tastefully decorated, comfortable, plenty of amenities, very relaxing

The Shoal Creek Gibbons home was absolutely perfect for our group and exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was available to us--Bobby and Angela thought of everything! Our family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home, the lake, the restaurants and the surrounding Florence area. Swimming was in a channel, which was no more than 8' from the house. It was a blessing to have such a nice place to relax with some quality family time. The owners are outstanding, and communicate very, very well. Highest recommendation AAA+++
