This vacation was a wonderful all around experience. Making the reservations and payments were the easiest I've ever dealt with. No hassle, no inconvenience, no running around half a day to pick up keys or drop them back off. Convenient key code entry and exit so you never had to keep up with keys. The very first thing that I noticed when we walked in the door was how clean the home smelled. It was actually cleaned instead of vacuumed and beds changed. My wife can be somewhat of a clean freak/germaphobe and even she didn't feel the need to re-clean everything when we walked in the door like she usually does. The inside of the home is wonderfully decorated and all tile floors which we love. It has beautiful sunset views over the lagoon. Much prettier than the pictures provided. We have two boys (18&8) that love the beach and fishing. This rental is right on the lagoon with a dock and a personal boat ramp large enough for jet skis. We could sit right in the back yard and watch the boys fish and kayak from the comfort of a completely shaded bottom patio with bbq grills and picnic table, a furnished upper deck with patio table and lounge chairs, or even lay in the sun on your own private sand beach in the backyard. When we got ready for the beach it was just a short, straight walk to the beach. There is a nicely stocked local grocery store right on the corner. Their prices were a little higher than big box stores but the convenience and the politeness of the owners were well worth it. We will definitely stay in this same location again. I enjoyed it much more than staying directly on the beach due to the options of the lagoon. On the days that it was threatening rain, we could still enjoy the sand beach in the backyard, fish, and kayak without having to worry about carrying a lot of stuff and run from the beach if a rain or storm blew in quickly.

Our family of four stayed here for a week on July 4th holiday with our dachshund. The house was very clean and modern and in an excellent location. We sat on the back deck every morning and evening while the kids caught hermit crabs, blue crabs, jellyfish, minnows, etc. with their nets and buckets :) They fished daily as well catching lots of small species which kept them entertained for hours at a time giving mom and dad some nice chill time. And since we brought our dog, the yard was perfect...perimeter fence secure so we could relax and let her explore. We were very happy we chose this house over a condo right on the beach. You could walk just a quick block and have the best beach in Gulf Shores. The Pier 33 store just up the street was also convenient to buy bait and a quick item. It is on the pricy side for food though so we went into town for our larger grocery list. We would definitely stay here again! All amenities in the house were just what you need.

The house was perfect for my family and dogs. Very close to the beach and many good restaurants. My only knock was that the house wasn't very clean on our arrival but I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Bonnie Dune home was so great for our family. It was just like it was pictured on website! The location was great to the beach and we loved the lagoon at our back steps. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to go again. The only minor issue was the Internet was a little slow and spotty. Truly a great home and we loved making memories there.

Well equipped beach house. The only negative was the noisy ceiling fan in master bedroom.

Loved it!

I was mesmerized by the water and the breeze on the dock. Spent so much time reading by the water. Fenced yard for the dogs, across the street from the beach. The cottage was very homey. Ladies, no hairdryer so bring your own. Also burs in the yard which got stuck in our pups feet, so watch out for that. This place made me realize I need to live on the water.

Neat home close to beach and all attractions. Would rent again.

We had a GREAT time at Bonnie Dune Beach House the week of Sept. 12-19, 2016. The fenced back yard is something you don't find very often at a beach house and was absolutely perfect for our dogs! The private boat dock was the perfect place to sit and enjoy the beautiful sunset. We even caught a salt water trout off the dock, while the pups enjoyed chasing crabs into the water. My only complaint was while my husband was loading the car for our departure, the door code was changed (5-10 minutes before the 10 a.m. checkout time)and he couldn't get back in the house. Luckily, I was still inside the house and could open the door for him, but if we had both taken luggage down we would've been completely locked out with half our suitcases still inside! If 10 a.m. is the check out time, please don't lock us out before then. Bonnie Dune was perfect for us, thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise!

It was nice, clean and cozy! We will be back! One of the light fixtures was missing a cover (not a big deal at all), but the trash drawer knob kept coming off though, so your crew may want to fix that. Otherwise, thank you and had fun!

Relax on the deck, watch the birds fly over the canal,and when you get tired of this go out for dinner at a good restaurant nearby. It has all one needs in a rental.

You can count on it.

Always great. Beautiful view, clean, upper and lower decks for sun or no sun, and close to beach. No worries on what you can expect here.

Second Stay

Our second vacation at Bonnie Dune was great even though some days were cloudy and chilly. The key code provided easy access and the house was super clean. We enjoyed walking in the quiet "neighborhood" setting, cooking outside on the grill downstairs, fishing off the dock, and relaxing on the deck and in the private sand yard. Bonnie dune is well-equipped with pans, utensils, and such but no food is left between rentals, so you will need to plan accordingly. Grocery stores (Rouse's, Walmart, etc.) are just a short drive. For emergency purchases, bait and snacks, the Pier 33 convenience store was walkable distance at the end of the street. To reach the beach, we had an easy walk (10 Minutes) to the closest public access area. Enjoyed our stay at Bonnie Dune!

This is my second stay here. Would do it again. Has all I need and more. Good location.

Vacation was great - no issues or problems. Property was well maintained and fully furnished. Enjoyed the swing and hammocks below in the morning and afternoon where it was well shaded and always a breeze.

We had a wonderful experience. We loved Bonnie Dune and will be back. The house was very conveniently located to the beach, entertainment, restaurants, and there is even a small convenience store located at the end of the road. The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We did not want for any kitchen utensils and we cooked every meal there except 2 during our week long stay. The backyard and porch were wonderful for watching sunrises, sunsets, and entertaining. Owner had great customer service- make sure to read the Bonnie Dune binder upon arrival, it answered all the questions we had regarding trash pickup, beach items, etc. Our family and friends all had a great time. We can't wait to go back!

We had the best experience. Arrived to the house and was more than pleased with the overall house, furnishings and backyard experience. Couldn't ask for better of both worlds. Spend the day at the beach or spend the day at the lagoon. View of water at night was more than spectacular with the most beautiful sunsets. Location of the house is also perfect for all restaurants and mini golf etc.. we just had the best time. Anytime I had a question or needed something owners were on top of it and responsive. Hope to come back!

We've stayed at this property before and once again it didn't disappoint. We had everything we needed to make the most of our week at the beach. Our boys loved fishing off the dock behind the house, the beach is a short walk away and there's even a small grocer nearby in case you need something. We definitely will stay at Bonnie Dune again in the future.

great location, close to restaurants, very quiet,

Had a wonderful time. Close to everything. Very nice neighbors. Will be back the end of March and first 3 weeks of April.

We've been to Gulf Shores five times and Bonnie Dune is our favourite rental so far. The West Beach location is excellent and the house was super clean with great outside recreation areas and awesome views. The WiFi and tv setup worked wonderfully and our dogs really enjoyed the fenced yard. We hope to stay at Bonnie Dune again next year because this house is top-notch and ALBVR was a pleasure to work with as well!

This nice property was everything we were looking for ... A week of relaxation! The house was neat and clean and updated. We were able to take our "fur babies" and they enjoyed it as much as we did! The back deck offers sun or shade and the pier offers excellent fishing. The neighbors were very nice and the area was peaceful and quite. One of our favorite activities was simply sitting in the swing on the back deck in the late afternoon and at night. Gorgeous sunsets !!! Can not wait to go back!

The house was very clean and well equipped! It was just like home from home for us! My family loved the little lagoon out back, the hammocks, deck, and under house areas! Close to everything! (I.e.

This is my second stay here and I noticed a few minor improvements which were nice. I like the white sandy beach and sitting under the palm trees overlooking the lagoon. Very relaxing surroundings. The deck also sits high above the lagoon and is another place I enjoy.

I caught some fish off the pier and in the cove by launching my kayak at the ramp on the property.

Look forward to doing it again.

It was so perfect to rent this house. It was quiet and gave us the privacy we needed as well as access to everything. We loved having the best of both worlds, being able to enjoy the lagoon or go to the beach. We brought our jet skis and easily used them on the lagoon as well. There is an inlet to the ocean that we could actually cross over and go over to the ocean with our jet skis that was fun too! This house just had everything we needed from the deck, fishing dock, hammocks, barbecue grill, picnic table. If not at the beach everyday we were at the house enjoying every minute. The sunsets we experienced were nothing but amazing every night. We would like to thank you very much. Lastly we had excellent communication from the owners. Anytime we had a question, they were prompt with an answer. The best experience we could ever hope for. We brought our family of 6 consisting of our children who are 22 and 23 and their boyfriend and girlfriend. When they saw this amazing house they truly just wanted to be at the house and swimming out. Again a great rental can not say enough good things and how lucky we were to rent it!

Great location, the kids want to go back next year.

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to book again in the future.
