My family of four and my sibling and nephew enjoyed the river retreat. The duplex offered plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved fishing off of the dock when they had free time, and the adults loved having morning coffee on one of the decks or down at the dock. We did walk to the state park beach the first day, early evening; and we were the only ones on the beach, but we preferred the 1/2 mile drive to public access beach. We grilled out and enjoyed eating at the house, which had an updated kitchen. There were also plenty of restaurants to choose from, we really liked the Rib Shack for its delicious and reasonably priced smoked food. The only negative thing was that the bed in the kids room had a wrist band between the sheets and one of the bunks had a hairband behind mattress. Hopefully it was just missed in the wash. We are planning on a return visit.

Everything was perfect. Short walk to the beach. Everything was spotless. Wonderful peaceful view from both balconies. Owner checked in on us. 5 stars at a very reasonable rate. My daughter was married on the beach and this was the perfect place to stay. We will definately be back!!
Every year when my family and I vacation, I am always looking for new places to visit. I thought I would venture out this year and ask my Facebook friends of a new place to visit and hands down all of them suggested Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. Am I glad I asked. As soon as I spotted this home, I knew it was for us... Right place and right price. Star (the owner) responded to our request almost immediately and we were on our way to booking it. We ended up getting it for 5 days instead if 7 but we couldn't have asked for a better vacation home. It was as beautiful on the inside as it was the outside. Even my 8 year old granddaughter asked if we could stay here next year and I was like "yes". The balcony overlooks Old River and at night you can see the fish in the river and you might spy a Heron balancing on the pier. My granddaughters loved the outside shower too. My daughter and husband claimed the master bedroom (it had it's own balcony too). The home is beautiful and spacious and Starbia wonderful to work with. I will stay again next year☺️
