[Just purchased on 2/11/22. Reviews on our other property Blue Parrot #7 can be seen on Airbnb. Recently, the inside and outside were painted, a new deck and new roof were installed, and two bathrooms were remodeled.]

Blue Parrot #8 is right on the beach near downtown Gulf Shores, Alabama. This 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom duplex sleeps 14 and has a beachfront swimming pool with comfortable lounge chairs. The two decks provide breathtaking views of the sparkling waters and serene sugar white sand.

The space
Blue Parrot #8 appeared on the TV show "Island Life" (Season 4 Episode 9).

The home has 2400 square feet of space. From the pool view, the unit is on the left side of the duplex. The main level of the home features 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a kitchen, a dining area and a living room. The first bedroom on the main level has a king size bed. The second bedroom on the main level is just off of the kitchen area and has two twin beds. Both bedrooms on the first floor share a full size bathroom. The second level of the home features 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a private bath and a private Gulf front deck. The middle bedroom has a 2 bunk beds and the north bedroom has a king size bed and they share a full size bathroom between these two rooms accessible from the hallway. The layout and design of Blue Parrot #8 are perfect for comfort, privacy and entertaining. Located in the heart of Gulf Shores, only 1.8 miles from Highway 59, Blue Parrot #8 is a perfect beach house with all of the comforts and luxuries of home.

The unit also has a very large ground level storage room we call the "Toy Closet" (see picture). It is stocked with beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys and pool toys for use by guests. This gives you more space in your vehicle during travel since you do not have to bring these items with you. You can also use this room to store your own things so you don't have to carry them inside the unit.

For technology lovers, the home has internet download speeds up to 1 GB and 6 televisions each with Youtube TV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Youtube and much more.

The pool is not heated and the pool is shared with the other side of the duplex.

The unit comes with bed linens (pillow cases, sheets and blankets) and bathroom linens (bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, and bath mats). Beach towels are not provided. One roll of toilet paper and 2 small bars of soap are provided per bathroom. Wash cloths and dish towels are provided for the kitchen.
