PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS
❄️ 4 bedrooms: 2 King beds, 1 Queen bed, 2 triple bunk beds 
❄️ 2 full-size bathrooms and 1 outdoor shower
❄️ Private heated pool
❄️ Pets allowed! No pet fee!
❄️ Modern and open living room
❄️ Open concept and spacious kitchen 
❄️ Free high-speed internet and smart TV in each bedroom

This spacious property was not only newly-bought but also newly updated. It was just built a few years ago and has been professionally managed as a rental since then. The open living space is perfect for the whole family or a large group. With 4 bedrooms, you can all have your privacy and a peaceful escape.
 
NEIGHBORHOOD
This single-floor home is in a residential neighborhood. The neighborhood and backyard are perfect for grilling out, enjoying a fire, and laughing with your friends and family. Please respect our friends and neighbors and avoid loud, large parties. Please treat the neighbors like you live there. 
 
LIVING ROOM & KITCHEN
After a long day of sun-soaked adventure, settle down on one of the comfy couches and turn on the smart 65" TV to find a movie for the whole family.
 
The fully-equipped kitchen comes prepared with stainless steel appliances and all the basics and amenities you could think of, including a Keurig coffee maker and 12-cup drip coffee maker, and everything you may need to cook a full meal.
 
POOL
You will have access to your own 20-foot heated pool. The pool is 3’ deep on one end and 4’11” at the deep end. We have the temp set to 78 degrees, and the kids enjoyed the pool temperature.
 
*Please note that the pool heater (heat pump) will NOT work when the ambient temperature dips below 57 degrees. The heat pump takes the heat from the ambient air to heat the pool water. When it drops below about 57 degrees outside, there is not enough heat to activate the heat pump.
 
PETS
Pets are welcome with no pet fee for the entire stay. Please bring bags and clean up after your pets.
 
OUTDOORS
There is an outdoor shower so you can rinse off the sand as you walk back from the beach. There is also an outdoor grill available for your use. Kindly bring your own charcoal.
 
BEACH ESSENTIALS
We JUST bought a bunch of beach toys for guests to use. You won't have to worry about bringing umbrellas, beach chairs, a beach wagon, or kids' sand toys.
 
PARKING
Never worry about parking! There's free parking space for up to 3 cars.
 
REST EASY WITH WAIVO
It’s vacation time, so enjoy it with peace of mind knowing that if an accident happens and damage occurs, you are protected under Waivo! We take care of the cost of this coverage. This is ON TOP of any coverage the platform protects you for. If there is any damage, please just let me know and I will make a claim with Waivo. You won't hear a thing from me. (As long as you clean up after your dog.)
 
The total cost of your reservation for this property includes a damage waiver fee which covers you for up to $5,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents (such as furniture, fixtures, and appliances) as long as you report the incident to us prior to checking out. A damage waiver will be sent to your e-mail once your booking is confirmed.
 
(Please note that this waiver does not negate your responsibilities as a renter for items outside of Waivo’s responsibilities.) 
 
⭐ A Few Kind Words From Our Past Guests ⭐
"The Ona House is a great place for a wonderful vacation. It's beautiful and really gives you that feeling of living on the beach! Thomas is also great and quick to reply to any form of communication." - Broghan
 
"This was an amazing family-friendly location and stay. Our family had a great time!!  Our kids loved their own private pool and having the beach within easy walking distance. Thomas was a GREAT host easily reachable and he made our stay easy and carefree!" - Rachel
 
"Amazing hosts. The beach house is within a few steps of our family's favorite beach. We could tell, as soon as you walk in that they put a lot of time and effort into updating their beach house with our family's vacation experience in mind. We could tell this isn't like a vacation home managed by a property manager. Truly a top of their class vacation home. Thank you!" -  Alex

We are from the frozen tundra that is Wisconsin. After visiting the area with our family, we fell in love with this side of Gulf Shores. We wanted a beach house so we could relax in the white sand with our children as they grow up and look forward to helping your family create memories here!
