Lagoon-front home w/nearby boat launch & balcony w/gorgeous views

Looking to get away from it all yet want to be near popular attractions? Have a group of 12 people? Want to fish off a pier? Want to bring your boat? If you answered yes to any or all of these, then Second Wind is your vacation choice!

Located on West Lagoon Avenue, on the lagoon, in Gulf Shores, this house is nicely tucked away from the road. Second Wind is less than two miles from the Hangout and Highway 59. There is parking under the house and out front, and there is a boat launch directly across the lagoon.

Under the house is a picnic table to relax and hang out with friends! You may access the house from stairs at the front or back of the house. As you walk in the front of the house, there is a bedroom to the left and right. Each bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and television. As you go down the hall, there is a full-size bathroom on your right with a tub/shower combination. To the left is the kitchen. The kitchen has all the pots/pans/utensils you need to cook or bake a meal during your stay!

At the end of the hall, the house opens up with a dining area and living area with a sofa sleeper. From the entire area, you can look out at the beautiful lagoon. Relax and enjoy a meal in the dining area, surf the free WiFi, or sit and watch the flatscreen television. Both sliding glass doors open up to the balcony where you can see Little Lagoon.

The master bedroom is located upstairs as well as the fourth room. The master bedroom faces the front of the house with a king-size bed and flat-screen. There is a private balcony off the front of the house and though not on the Gulf or directly across the street, there is still a slight view and salt air to enjoy. The bathroom upstairs may be accessed from the hall or the master bedroom. There is a tub/shower combination.

The fourth room is upstairs too! There is a bunk bed with a double on bottom and twin-sized bed on top! Outside the fourth room, there is a sitting area with a pull-out bed, so the house will sleep up to 12!

Outside the house is paradise! Sit on the balcony and look out across the pier and lagoon! Watch the birds fly through the air, boats come up and down the lagoon and feel the salt air against your face. Fish off the pier or swim in the lagoon! Launch your boat directly across the lagoon, and feel free to park your boat in the slip! Come get away from it all and gather your "Second Wind."

The house was beautiful and the pier was nice. The best part was it was just a short walk to the beach. The service desk was helpful and if we needed something they sent someone out. We look forward to staying here again sometime!

This was our 3rd stay at Second Wind. It's beautiful and refreshing. It would give us more of a "second wind" if we didn't wear ourselves out at the beach. But that's not the fault of this venue which is ideal for our needs: accommodates our large family; privacy, while just a block off of the beach; well-maintained, and conveniently furnished. Nothing negative to mention, except that all good things must come to an end.

There were 11 of us!! We had plenty of room and a short walking distance from beach!!

The house was beautiful and well accommodated me and my friends for my birthday weekend. Everything about the property was amazing

The house is on a beautiful property. The pictures are spot on for what you get. However, the speaker for the TV was inoperable (minor) and although an elevator is advertised (the reason I booked for an elderly guest which in turn did not stay), it was not in operation (no key). Do not book if you're expecting an elevator from ground level to the main floor.
Manager response:
We are sorry you experienced issues with the elevator and the TV. We will see that these item are addressed and hope to host you again soon.

This home was perfect for our group of 4. The home has all of the amenities we needed to cook for a large group and feel comfortable for a week-long stay. Would definitely return!

Absolutely loved the walk out to the dock. So gorgeous!

The home was very clean and spacious! It had everything we need and more!! If Gulf Shores is on your Trip List then "Second Wind" should be where you stay!!

My husband & I had our beach wedding in Gulf Shores and stayed at the 2nd Wind. Absolutely beautiful!! Very spacious, clean and an amazing view on the Lagoon. The best part by far was the neighbor/caretaker Wes!! Such a nice, hospitable gentleman that made a wonderful impact during our special trip. I would recommend this beauty for sure!!!! We will definitely be back!

We have vacationed every summer in Gulf Shores for 20 years. This is the first time we did not stay on the beach and chose the bay instead. What a great decision. We have 5 kids ages 9-18. They played on the doc, fished, crabbed, swam, kayaked and just hung out on the doc probably 6 hours everyday. Everyone was content hanging out at the house instead of our usual chaos of going everywhere and doing everything (which costs a lot of money). The walk to the beach was about 5 minutes...easy. Also a true benefit of staying here as opposed to beach side was not seeing all the people and traffic and comotion everywhere. It made our vacation time seem less hustle and bustle and truly gave our family a slower pace.

Loved everything about our stay! It was very relaxing and peaceful. We spent most of our time on the back porch and fishing on the pier. Close to good food, shopping and walking distance to the beach. Second wind was very spacious and would definitely rent again. Thanks Vacasa!

This house was in a great location, easy to walk to the beach and close to many restaurants and things to do. The house was a perfect size for the 10 of us, the living area is great and spacious. They provided plenty of towels, sheets, dishes, etc., and we felt right at home! The dock was amazing, the sunset views from it were great and it was fun to be able to go out there and relax. The wifi was not the best but it wasn't much of an issue. Overall we had a wonderful experience here!

Clean, wonderful vacation home!!

This house is a great location since you have the lagoon on one side and a very short walk to the ocean on the other side. We loved having the family all together!
Leslie F. Nov 2018
Ease of access, open style living, stocked kitchen and convenient location make Second Wind a great choice for our Holiday Getaway! Loved it!
Mark S. Oct 2018
We loved this cozy retreat! It was the perfect spot for a north view of the lagoon and a short walk to the south to the ocean! Very clean and plenty of room to spread out!

Walking distance to the beach. Really close to the stores.
Clean. Nice. The kids liked the house so for me that's good enough. Appliances are up to date.

We loved the jetty and the bird life.
Clayton S. Jul 2018
This little house is plenty roomy for a group of 12. We enjoyed the morning drinking coffee and the afternoons drinking pina coladas on the back porch overlooking the docks on the water. Walking distance to what seemed like a private beach. Beautiful!!!
