Wonderful Beachfront Home w/ Central AC, Free WiFi, Shared Pool, Hot Tub, W/D

Turtle Dunes is a beautiful, updated, beachfront, and single-family home located in the exclusive, gated community of The Dunes. Lovingly restored by the new owners, this home is a showstopper! Simply put, it just doesn't get any better than this. The spectacular views are reason enough to stay here but the owners have given the interior a total facelift. And this unique home comes equipped with a private elevator which makes it accessible for anyone with limited mobility. Because every day isn't a beach day, you'll love the access to a community pool and hot tub. There is even a gym available for your use.

Ample seating on the spacious deck allows everyone to take in those spectacular sunsets or just sit, watch, and listen to the sound of the waves. An oversized dining table is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the awesome view, so even if you dine indoors, you'll still feel like you're on the beach. This beachfront home has five bedrooms plus five-and-a-half baths. Each bedroom has its own private bath. The open common area features a living room with a hide-a-bed, a dining table that seats up to 14 (with room for four more at the breakfast bar), and a well-equipped, full kitchen. You will be able to prepare whatever feast strikes your fancy without leaving the beach!

Two of the five bedrooms are on the main level. Upstairs, are two bedrooms with balcony access, a sitting area with a futon and balcony access, and a bunk room with two sets of bunks. New additions include electric fireplaces in the main bedroom and living room!

House was better than pictured. Our extended family of 12 had plenty of room. Huge living, dining and kitchen was perfect for family gatherings. The beach was right outside the back door and the deck was great for watching amazing sunsets. Nothing could have been better. PERFECT VACATION!!

This was an even more beautiful house than the pictures - if you can believe it. Jaw dropping, and loved the teal/turquiose and white beach n turtles decor so much. I want to spend an entire week here next time! Hoping it fared ok with Hurricane Sally... This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was clean and comfortable. The management -Jen_ is so easy to work with and responsive. I`ll rent with this company again. The only complaint were some nails sticking up on the deck. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Turtle Dunes was the perfect property for our family vacation. The customer service from the rental property during the reservation process through check-out was excellent. The property was exactly as described and pictured on the website. Toys and games in the house were a plus. The large balcony with chairs and umbrellas to help block the sun was perfect for watching the sun rise and set each day. We were even lucky enough to see 2 pods of dolphins playing right in front of us.

The elevator was a huge plus for an older family member and having 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor was perfect so stairs weren`t an issue for him. Love that each bedroom has it`s own bathroom (even the room with the bunkbeds).

To get to the beach, you have to use the boardwalk which is not that far but could be challenging for anyone who has mobility issues.

We did not go to the community pool, hot tub or tennis so I cannot review any of those areas.

The location was perfect for our family. On the first night after checking in and unloading, we didn`t feel like cooking so we went to Tacky Jack`s which was right across the main entrance and had a great dinner (great fried shrimp, royal reds and my sister said their burger was really good as well). There is also a Dollar General and Sassy Bass Marketplace with a liquor store not too far away for any last minute items you may have forgotten.

Some of our family live in Mobile so we caught the Mobile Bay Ferry back home since the day and weather was so beautiful. Probably saved 30 minutes off our driving time.

I would definitely recommend Turtle Dunes and we have earmarked it for future rentals ourselves. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

It is a beautiful home with wonderful views. My daughter rented a home 3 minutes down the road for her wedding. So the home was big enough to accommodate family from NC and us. We watched dolphins every morning!! We visited Fort Morgan and enjoyed the rich history. A short drive to gulf shores and dinner venues. Tacky Kacks is just across the road and has good food and service. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had 5 couples stay at the house for 5 days. Very quiet and peaceful. House was clean and very well kept. The ice maker and elevator were nice extras. Beach access was very close. We didn`t have to long of a journey to the beach with our gear. We went into Gulf Shores to eat a couple of times because there are not a lot restaurants close by. The grocery store was also in Gulf Shores. Kitchen was good size and we did use the outside charcoal grill also. All in all it was a very nice place and great time. Internet access wasn`t great. Very intermittent. Plenty of parking and the deck was huge with lots of chairs. We will definitely rent again.

Beautiful location. Beautiful view of ocean. Perfect for families. Well stocked kitchen with amenities for meal preparation. Comfortable beds and adequate space for adult extended families having space. Only need is to repair locking hardware on balconies.

Our house was great.. very big and clean. The location was a little far from the town which was inconvenient. However, it was far enough so the population on the beach wasn’t overcrowded. The only complaint I have is when I called the manager to ask for help with the air conditioning he wasn’t very helpful. We had two small children and an infant so it was hot and very unprofessional. The rest of our stay was great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The property is in a great location right on the beach. I don`t believe the rental was rental ready though and that was very disappointing. There were new windows stacked up and blocking HALF the view of the water. One of the upstairs door did not lock and one was nailed shut.
