The house and setting were wonderful. Communication was great as Soehnke kept me up to date on how to check in and excellent directions. The beach was just across the street. The only negative could just be the result of my expectations. In all of my Airbnb experiences, the hosts provided coffee and basic kitchen items needed for the stay. I realize that this rental is used for longer term summer use and is managed by a third party. I always bring coffee, just in case, but there were no coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, napkins, paper towel, pepper. Since the closest town is about thirty minutes away, it was an inconvenience. If I had known ahead of time, I would have been more prepared.
We stayed at Seagull East for a long weekend over Halloween and had a wonderful vacation! The house is well laid out, comfortable and very clean. It is not technically in Gulf Shores but actually an isolated area called Fort Morgan, about 17 miles down the road. The benefit of that though is no crowds, untouched beach and relaxation! We stayed on the beach for three days and literally encountered no other person - a perfect getaway. We enjoyed dinner at nearby Tacky Jacks and checked out the Civil War era fort for which the area is named - both are recommended. Make sure to stop at the grocery on the way in so you don't have to make the trek in/out of town. Also, you'll need to bring your own essentials (trash bags, dish soap, paper towels, etc.) - a quick trip to the nearby convenience store got us set and we left our extras for the next guest. Check in/out was seamless and Soehnke was a breeze to work with. Overall, this was the ideal setting for us to unplug and recharge - thanks for providing a great home!
We had a fabulous time at this property! Wonderful decor plus plenty of room (even for teenagers!) Made the house more than comfortable. The great beach front location allowed for maximum time to enjoy the uncrowded beach. We would absolutely stay hear again and will invite friends next time and rent the entire property. Working with Soehnke was a breeze and made the whole process painless. Thanks for allowing our family to create a week of wonderful memories.
The place was great! Beautiful beaches and loads of family time. The only minor setback was all the laundry at home, the dryer was not working well. Overall, we had an amazing time, great location for families/kids. We are already planning on staying here again in the next year or two! :) enjoy!

About the Host, Soehnke
4 years ago my husband and I bought this beautiful Beach Home(after vacationing with our family in this area for 15 years) and transformed this house into a happy and colorful beach themed place.The pristine white beach offers something for everybody: fishing,blue crab hunting, dolphin watching, surfing,canoeing or paddle boarding, sandcastle building or just relaxing on the beach-and all that ,just a couple steps away from the house. We put much thought into details ,like all the kitchen amenities and interior decoration and hope you will experience a Home away from home-just more colorful! We are looking forward to seeing you!
