Property Information

*** New photos coming soon *** 
*** Photos will be getting updated throughout the Winter/Spring *** A Place in the Sun was sold in Summer of 2020 and the new owner has lots of changes and remodeling planned including adding a private, heated pool that will sit underneath the house.  Please ask about what all they are doing to the home for the most up to date and accurate details.

Looking for a place to have a relaxing weekend or a beach house to make lifelong memories and have some family fun?  If so, please come visit us at A Place in the Sun!  A Place in the Sun is a 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom beach house that sits directly off West Beach Blvd on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores.  A Place in the Sun is a 2-story home that sleeps up to 14 and is pet friendly so bring the pups along as they are welcome too!

Once you pull into the driveway you can park underneath A Place in the Sun on either side (4 parking spaces will be covered as they are under the house).  The new owners are planning to make the extra area a BBQ & lounge area so that people can enjoy the outside, covered space.  Further South, on the back side of the house is where they are planning to add the pool.  The pool is going to be approximately 10 feet wide and 23 feet long.  It will have sitting benches along one side and will have a heater for the cooler seasons.  We are expecting the pool to be completed in December or January.

Once you enter the foyer, you are greeted by steps.  Taking these steps will lead you to the first floor of two.  On your left is the Kitchen & Dining area.  The kitchen is a fully stocked kitchen with all appliances.  There is seating for 4 at the kitchen counter and for 6 at the dining room table.  On the other side of the floor is the living room that looks out over the beach through the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors.  There are 2 sofas & 2 chairs so there is plenty of space to sit & gather while you look out over the beach or while you watch the large flat screen TV.  

There are also two bedrooms on the first floor.  One bedroom is the Master bedroom that has its own sliding glass door to the balcony.  It has a large closet, a large flat screen TV, and a private bathroom with a stand-up shower and a separate sit-down tub.  Bedroom #2 is located on the back side of the house close to where the stairs came up to.  This room has a flat screen TV, bathroom access with a shower, and a Queen Bed.

On the South side, as far as you can go, is the large covered balcony.  There is plenty of furniture to sit in and enjoy the waves rolling in while also being covered and shaded.  The staircase on the balcony leads down to where the pool will be and where the beach trail is.

Now let us head upstairs!  The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a second living room/bunk bed area.  Bedroom #3 & Bedroom #4 both are on the Gulf Side, have glass sliding doors to the 2nd story balcony, both have King Beds, flat screen TVs, closets, and their own private bathrooms (Bathroom #3 has a shower/tub combo & bathroom #4 has a shower and separate sit down tub).  Bedroom & Bathroom #5 are located on the North side of this floor.  It has a King bed, a flat screen TV, a closet, and private bathroom with a shower/tub combo.

The washer and dryer are also on the second floor.

The last area of this floor is the upstairs living room/bunk area.  There are 3 built in Twin over Twin bunks in this area, a living room/TV area, and half bath.

We hope this helps and that you will come and enjoy spending some time at A Place in the Sun.  And please remember to check back periodically as there will be lots of work being done and we will update pictures accordingly!
