When you think of your next beach vacation, think of our fully updated, clean, private home located directly on the Gulf of Mexico's white sandy beaches.

Marilyn's Cottage is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath Gulf-front single-family home on the beach (not a duplex) sleeps 10-12 in Gulf Shores, AL. The house was remodeled in January 2016; including new floors, new microwave, new furniture, every room freshly painted, and new specialty hardware and fixtures throughout. Special features of the house include a full bath for every bedroom, and an en-suite bath with tub in the bunk room. The main living area boasts airy 20+ foot ceilings, and the second floor has generous 10 foot ceilings, making each room in the house open, spacious and inviting. Another special feature is a balcony attached to each bedroom, with a special view from the 2nd floor master bedroom. The house is extra bright and inviting. Decorated with a professional designer's touch, the grey-blue walls and green decor bring the warm sun right in.

Each bedroom has something special. Upstairs in the master bedroom - there is an amazing view from its private balcony, in the upstairs bunk room - there are two sets of bunk beds - that sleeps up to six people. In the downstairs guest bedroom - there is easy access to its own private balcony. All rooms have their own bathroom (3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms). There is one sleeper sofas in the living room. This is a great spot for you to put those early risers or ones that make a lot of noise in the morning before you have had your first cup of coffee.

Also, the washer and dryer are large capacity - which is great when those laundry stacks start to pile up because you are relaxing. Monthly rentals are available November to March 1. Marilyn's cottage is directly on West Beach Blvd in Gulf Shores, Alabama. It is perfectly located far enough away from the center of town, but close enough for a quick drive to your favorite seafood restaurant or watering hole. Just imagine having your own beach and fishing spot right in your backyard. The real estate rule is location, location, location and this place has all three.

Imagine the sound of waves gently lapping on the shore and the most gorgeous sunsets mother nature has to offer. Our home is your home, so sit back and soak in the panoramic views of our picturesque beach house (there isn't a bad seat in the house). Our home has everything that you will need; a fully-equipped kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, knives, etc., wet bar, comfortable furnishings, full size washer/dryer, high-speed WIFI and a flat screen TV's in each room with cable.

There is plenty of furniture on the deck - along with a large picnic table for you and your family to enjoy.

Finally, there is a convenient shower right off the beach - so you can wash the sand and salt water off before coming back inside to relax with your favorite beverage.

Great place for my sister and I for vacation. Everything we needed was provided. Had to call for Eli on Great time for my sister and I. House was great for the one who had trouble with stairs. The bedroom on first floor was a life saver. Everything you need is there and the beach was easy to get to. Had a question about the tv and they replied super fast. The week was a hit for all. Will return.
Wonderful Experience

This home has all you need for a quiet and relaxing week long family trip at the beach. -beach in your backyard -3 bedrooms with their own bathrooms -washer and dryer(so you don't have to pack a week's worth of clothes) -toys!!! Our boys loved playing with the trains and tracks in the early mornings and evenings -great location- away from the crowd but close to restaurants for dinner (We didn't want to cook on vacation.) We had a fantastic trip and created memories with our family.
This Place is Awesome! What a great location and View!"

We stayed at Marilyn's Cottage with our friends and found it absolutely wonderful. The house is beautifully decorated with lots of new furniture, very clean and has the best location and view ever! It is close to great restaurants and bars and because the house is right on the beach we could walk for miles or just take our chairs and listen to the Gulf of Mexico. We are very picky when we go on vacation - that is why Marilyn's Cottage was such a wonderful surprise. We will definitely be coming back next year. The house really feels like home. Thank you for the great memories.
