Here Are A Few Kind Words From Our Past Guests:
“Great location, wonderful accommodations, and our host went above and beyond with their communication. Would definitely recommend this lovely home.” –Neeval

☆☆ BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS ☆☆
Each of the four spacious bedrooms has been designed to be a perfect haven for rest and relaxation. Stretch out on the luxuriously comfortable beds, cozy up with a book, or step outside to enjoy the view from the covered balconies. All of the bedrooms (with the exception of the downstairs king suite) have flat-screen smart TVs – simply log into your streaming account and enjoy your favorite shows.
The primary suite on the first floor is furnished with a king-sized bed. Just steps away from the kitchen, grab a coffee and enjoy it in blissful quiet from your private balcony which is just through the sliding glass doors. This spacious bedroom has a full ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate soaking tub. The shower features a shower seat, making it ideal for multi-generational families. The double vanity is separate from the bathing area, making it easy for multiple guests to use the bathroom at the same time.
The remaining bedrooms can be found on the top floor. The beautiful primary suite upstairs is furnished with a plush king-sized bed, has plenty of storage space, and offers a private balcony with peek-a-boo views of the lagoon. This king suite’s private bathroom also has a double vanity and offers a sparkling and spacious walk-in shower.
The third bedroom has a comfy queen-sized bed and access to a shared covered balcony with the fourth bedroom. There’s plenty of seating plus gorgeous views!
The fourth bedroom will be adored by kids and grown-ups alike. With a twin-over-full bunk bed and a pull-out queen sleeper sofa, there’s plenty of space for everyone. This bedroom also doubles as a game room with an arcade console that has plenty of games to keep you busy.
The shared bathroom upstairs provides you with a combination bathtub and shower unit, which is perfect for bathing the little ones. Like the other two full bathrooms, this bathroom offers elegant granite countertops, large mirrors, and a double vanity. All three full bathrooms are stocked with fresh towels, hair dryers, and Eco Botanics toiletries for your convenience.
You’ll also find a half bathroom downstairs to cater to the common areas.
☆☆ KITCHEN & LOUNGE ☆☆
From the moment you step into the breathtaking main living space, you’ll feel at home. The open concept ensures your whole group can flow easily through the living and dining area, whether you’re cooking, eating, or just chilling!
The spacious yet cozy living room benefits from an abundance of natural light. Gather on the plentiful couches and chairs in front of the large smart TV for the perfect family movie night, or grab a few board games for some friendly competition!
The gourmet chef’s kitchen is a dream for anyone who enjoys home cooking. You’ll find everything you need to cook as if you were home, including modern stainless steel appliances and even a full spice rack! The large kitchen island with four counter stools is a great place for both food prep and chatting with the chef.
Enjoy your meals at the 6-person dining table. Situated next to the windows, this is a soul-soothing spot for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Next to the dining area, you’ll find access to the large, covered patio. Grab a coffee from the Keurig or drip coffee maker and enjoy a fresh cup of Joe with the sea breeze filling the air.
For a little more excitement, head upstairs to the game room! Here you can challenge your family to a few rounds on the arcade gaming cabinet, which is loaded with over 4000 games!
☆☆ OUTSIDE SPACE ☆☆
The Sandy Pelican features two covered decks, so you can enjoy the lovely natural surroundings of Gulf Shores from the comfort of your home, no matter the weather. There’s plenty of seating to sit back and enjoy the pretty views, while you sip your favorite icy cold beverage.
Downstairs you’ll find a shaded picnic table, which is the perfect spot for enjoying an outdoor bite. Fire up the BBQ grill or enjoy a picnic!
For the perfect beach day, raid our outdoor storage closet and enjoy the beach gear provided. This includes beach umbrellas, chairs, and wagons so you don’t have to worry about packing your own. Simply load up one of the two wagons and feel the white sand between your toes in under five minutes. We provide pool towels as well.
Nestled between the sparkling blue Gulf Ocean and the idyllic Little Lagoon, you’ll enjoy the best of both! Just a short walk away you’ll find the 13th Street public beach access, as well as a wonderful shared outdoor pool surrounded by plenty of sun loungers. It’s the best spot for a refreshing dip after a busy day at the beach!
When you need a break from the beach, The Sandy Pelican vacation home is conveniently located for some of the best attractions the Gulf Shores has to offer. Take a short drive to discover the Gulf State Park, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, or Waterville USA!

About the Owner
My wish is for you to have an amazing stay filled with unforgettable memories to cherish. I grew up in Huntsville, AL. I am a mom to an inquisitive preschooler who loves dessert and a cheerful one year old. I love traveling and hope to continue traveling more when the kids can sit still for more than 20 minutes. In my spare time, I enjoy binge-watching shows like Ted Lasso, watching figure skating, and baking! Hiking is a must-do for me and hopefully one day, I will be visiting all 63 National Parks in an RV. My family and I love staying in short-term rental vacation homes around the world and have taken what we loved about each stay and applied it to our own hosting vision. I strive to provide our guests with the best hospitality and experience possible so that you can kick back and create some wonderful memories!
