Why Gulf Shores guests love staying with TurnKey...

"This was our first ever family vacation and first ever visit to Alabama. Orange Beach is AWESOME! This home is EVERYTHING we hoped for and more. The photos are awesome but in person it's AMAZING!! It has everything you want, need and could ask for. Eight adults and 3 kids had A BALL!! The pool was great, the beach was great and ocean was great!! The home has plenty of towels, wash cloths extra blankets, pots, pans, glasses, plates, etc.. etc.. It was COMPLETELY well equipped. The only missing items: Pot holders and dish cloths (for when you just want to wash a few dishes and not use the dishwashers) Other than that - it was PERFECT and we will definitely come again."..."

Crystal Tower Condo w/ Gulf Views
"We took our adult children and grandkids. There was 13 of us in all. The home was excellent. The kitchen is open and airy but we did bring extra potholders and towels. We also brought trash bags. The kids and grandkids loved having access to the ocean and the pool, although the pool is not heated. No one spent much time in the pool but it was gorgeous. There were speakers indoor and outside for island music to play. We had Walmart deliver our groceries and they arrived exactly on time. We were able to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. The whole vacation and family time was exceptional. Great place to have a large gathering with plenty of space for all. There are a lot of steps which is expected in such a large home. All in all this was a magical place to stay. The heating and cooling worked really well. We had the whole area to ourselves and we didn’t see anyone on the beach until the day before we were to leave. We stayed 5 days and 4 nights. Close walk down the smooth boardwalk to the beach. Our one year old grandson toddled and crawled safely. I would advise bringing baby gates and toys if you have a small toddler. We had to buy some baby gates. We also bought some board games for our younger grandchildren which we played in the evenings. A wonderful time of making memories with our family. Perfect time of year for us to vacation at the beach. Great weather. Not too hot. Excellent quiet location. Safety for the grandkids was not an issue at all. I highly recommend this home!!!!"..."

How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Gulf Shores

Located along the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Shores’ warm waters and tropical weather offers year-round opportunities in Alabama for enjoying the beach, fishing, golfing, and relaxing in general. Visit one of Gulf Shores’ nine public beaches for the perfect sandcastle making sand and warm waters, or check out one of the many golf courses located inland. Checkout the ultimate live music experience at Hangout Music Fest or take the kids to see the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo—no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect Gulf Shores vacation rental for your travel plans.

  1. Where to stay to enjoy the beach. Visitors can enjoy Gulf Shores’ warm waters year-round, making the white sand beaches a popular hangout spot no matter the season. Gulf Shores boasts nine public beaches along Beach Boulevard. Gulf Shores Public Beach is one of the most popular choices for both couples, singles, and families. More adventurous visitors may want to look further north, and stay near Gulf State Park near Orange Beach.
  2. Where to stay to go golfing. There are a total of nine signature golf clubs across Gulf Shores, as well as a state-owned 18-hole course. To enjoy the golfing industry, visitors will want to stay further inland, like in the Craft Farms neighborhood to be near the Craft Farms golf resorts or south of Highway 59 near the Gulf Coast Golf Club.
  3. Where to stay near the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Located just off Highway 59, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is home to over 500 animals and was featured on Animal Planet. Stay near the zoo to also be near a wider variety of shops and restaurants, including King Neptune’s Seafood Restaurant and Drunken Shrimp.
  4. Where to stay for Hangout Music Festival. The annual three-day music festival is hosted in Gulf Shores in May. It’s hosted on Gulf Shores Public Beach, right behind the Hangout restaurant it’s named after, so attendees should look for condos or houses near that area. Some nearby options include West Beach, just a 10-minute walk from the festival, and condos close to the Gulf State Park Pier. There are shuttle buses that run during the festival and deliver most festival-goers to and from their condos each day.
  5. How to choose your own Gulf Shores rental experience. For Gulf Shores visitors in town just for fun in the sun, stick to condos right across the street from the ocean—but be aware that rentals without direct beach access will require you to walk to certain out of the way public beach accesses. To get a more well-rounded vacation and be near more shopping and restaurants, stay within walking distance of the intersection of Highway 59 and the beach road where second and third tier houses and some condo properties can be rented.

Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Gulf Shores team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Gulf Shores to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Gulf Shores house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Gulf Shores team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Gulf Shores vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Gulf Shores vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Gulf Shores, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
