Laguna Key is a gated beach front and lagoon front community at the very end of West Beach Boulevard in Gulf Shores. The beach is to the south, the lagoon is to the north, and the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge is to the west. It is situated in a quiet part of the beach, but is only a quick drive away from all the restaurants, festivals, and activities of Gulf Shores - it is just under 6 miles down the beach from The Hangout. The amenities of Laguna Key make it a perfect destination for family and friend vacations - beach boardwalk with gazebo, pool with bathrooms, tennis courts, pier onto the lagoon with gazebo, and quiet private interior streets behind the gated entrance.
Arrive at Seashell and enter the home via the ground level front door, and enter our interior landing and stairway. Once up the stairs you will arrive into the main living area and kitchen.

The drawers and cabinets are stocked with plenty of cups, mugs, flatware, silverware, knives, pots, pans, cooking sheets, stock pot, pyrex bakeware, and cooking utensils.
All of the TVs are Smart TVs. Instead of a standard cable subscription, the house is equipped with Hulu Live TV accessible on every TV (local channels and cable channels), and via Smart TV guests may access their Netflix, Amazon Prime, or any other streaming entertainment accounts. Guests will access our fast high speed WiFi connection (free), and enjoy a smart TV in the bedrooms.
The primary gathering place of Seashell is the open floor plan kitchen, dining, living area, and front and back porches. There is a huge kitchen island seating for five, dining room table seating for eight, and seating for six at the back deck dining table. A sofa and chair face the main living area TV, and four chairs are set up facing the front windows toward the Lagoon. Outside the front door is a spacious front porch for taking in the cool breeze, beach views, and beautiful days at Seashell.
There are two Master bedroom suites at Seashell, one on the main floor and one on the second floor. Each has a wonderful king sized bed, double vanities in the bathrooms, shower, and water closets. On the second floor there are two additional bedrooms with queen beds and ensuite bathrooms.
Upstairs, there is a bunk room with two sets of built-in bunk beds. One of the sets are full over full bunks, and the other is a twin over twin bunk set.
Also upstairs is a secondary living area with a sleeper sofa, TV, and a covered porch overlooking Little Lagoon.
On the ground floor underneath the deck is a covered patio with a porch swing and adirondack chairs. We welcome guests to use our grill (propane), beach wagons (2) and beach chairs (4). The pool, tennis courts, and lagoon piers are less than a 1 minute walk from the house, and beach boardwalk is a 2 minute walk. Many guests bring or rent kayaks or stand up paddle boards to enjoy in the lagoon. Golf carts are also welcome in the neighborhood, and some guests like them for getting from the house to the beach, pool, and lagoon. There is designated golf cart parking at each of these locations, and these are great especially if you take a lot of stuff to the beach each day. If you choose to rent a golf cart, we recommend Island Carts LLC as they will drop off and pick up your cart for you.

About the OwnerThe owners have owned multiple homes in Laguna Key, and think it is the best place to stay in Gulf Shores. The privacy of the beach, bordered by the protected wildlife refuge, make it a perfect beach for relaxing and playing in the sand and water. Little Lagoon is a beautiful 9 mile wide body of water connected to the Gulf of Mexico via Lagoon Pass. It is surrounded by pine trees and the sunset is spectacular behind the Lagoon. We love that Seashell is waterfront on the Lagoon - great privacy and great views.
