Blue Crab

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 10 Perdido Key #2 Pets Pool

Blue Crab
Complimentary COOLED Pool for Blue Crab guests.
With its soft, turquoise color and beachy vibe, Blue Crab begins to welcome you to the Gulf Coast the moment you drive (or boat) up. This cheerful riverfront vacation home can sleep up to 10 guests and includes a separate studio apartment on the ground floor. This layout is perfect for two families or separate couples vacationing together in the paradise we call Perdido Key.

Outside Living

It’s all about the water here in Perdido Key, and Blue Crab takes advantage of its waterfront proximity to Old River. There are multiple decks and balconies located on both sides of this home, all outfitted with new outdoor seating (replaced in 2020) for access to the cool, river breeze from all levels of this three-story home. Bedroom decks offer views into the leafy green trees, gulf beach or the river in the back. The large, riverside deck and ground floor patio both have plenty of room for gathering the entire family together for eating, playing, or just watching the dolphins search for their next meal. 

This cute waterfront home has access to a circular, wooden boardwalk that extends out into the river. It would be the perfect place to set a chair up and watch the boats, birds and the rest of the world float by. Leave your cell phone behind!

The third boat slip is available for this property and is for a boat with maximum dimensions of 9 ft wide, 6 thousand lb, and 21ft long. An additional slip may be available upon inquiry.

There’s also great fishing to be had right off of the private pier, just a few steps from your rental. The owner has been kind enough to provide a few kayaks for your use- so get out there on the water! There are waterways to be explored and fish to catch. 
There’s a beach volleyball court set up in the side yard, ready for a few friendly, family competitions. Not into volleyball? Use that net for a paddle ball or badminton games. The soft, white sand is perfect for tossing a frisbee or football (no worries about hitting unsuspecting sunbathers), setting up a bocce ball court, corn hole game, yoga or sandcastle building. 

You and your guests will end up spending most of your time out on the patio, decks and balconies watching the boats and the glorious sunsets. If you’ve been lucky enough to catch your limit, clean them up and grill out on the main deck’s big Weber gas grill. Besides comfortable seating, there’s a dining table and chairs ready for your next outdoor meal. The hot tub (replaced in 2019) is there to soak away the remaining stress and ease those sore muscles. A private saltwater pool was also added in 2022 and can be heated during the cooler months (additional fees apply).

**Saltwater Pool heating is a seasonal amenity. Not available from Memorial Day to Labor Day.**

Inside Amenities 

Bright white walls, rich warm wood floors and beach accents will have the stress levels easing in no time. The entire wall in the living room is glass, letting in natural light and that glorious, riverfront view. There’s a wood-burning fireplace if things cool down and ceiling fans and AC when things heat up. 

Comfortable seating (replaced in 2020) in the living room will welcome you and your tired guests after a long day of fishing, swimming and having fun. With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, this unit can accommodate up to 10 guests- plenty of room for a large family getaway with room to spare! The dining area seats 6 at the table with 3 additional seats at the kitchen counter/bar. The open floor plan lets you enjoy the stunning river view from your fully equipped kitchen while preparing your catch-of-the-day or snacks for game night. The main bedroom and bath are on this level and share the river view. There are two more bedrooms on the upper floor with a shared bath and each of these bedrooms have their own balcony.

Blue Crab also has a studio apartment located on the ground floor with its own private entrance, perfect for a multi-generational family or several couples. The studio apartment features its own fully equipped kitchen, dining table, bathroom and separate washer and dryer. What could be more convenient? The studio apartment opens onto the partially covered patio and more of that lovely river view. 

Green Living at Blue Crab

The owner promotes green living at this private home. The house’s power is supported by a 5.90 KW solar panel array on the south-facing portion of the roof, which makes up for a third of the energy consumption. Additionally, you will find LED light bulbs, green landscaping and recycling, just to name a few of the other sustainable features of this home. 
**Pet-friendly property- additional fee (s) apply**

Perdido Key

Perdido Key is a beautiful, narrow strip of paradise on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s just minutes away from Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, but less crowded. Known for sugary, white sand and beautiful, emerald waters, you can enjoy all of your favorite watersports here- fishing, swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing and more! There are several historic forts like Fort McRee, Fort Barrancas and Fort Pickens to explore. If you enjoy hiking and biking, Big Lagoon State Park and Perdido Key State Park are great places to experience the beautiful outdoors.

If you don’t feel like cooking (who can blame you- you’re on vacation) Cobalt’s, Fisherman’s Corner, The Original Point Restaurant, The Gulf, Lillian’s Pizza are all worth a try! No visit to the Gulf Coast would be complete without a trip to the world-famous Flora-Bama Lounge or Flora-Bama Yacht Club (Yacht Club is kid-friendly) to enjoy their famous Bushwackers, oysters and live music! Hub Stacey’s also has live music. There is something for the whole family in Perdido Key!

Absolutely great location and beautiful views. Right on the water with easy access to fishing. Several canoes available for use, volleyball court in side yard, tennis and basketball court across road all within walking distance. Heated pool and awesome hot tub. Lots of room for family of 5. Nice apartment downstairs with separate entry. Easy access to beach across road but it’s quite a walk. Beach is beautiful here and untouched being in state park there aren’t many people around. It is IMPORTANT to bring essentials with you if you are staying more than a day. When we arrived there was only one trash bag, one roll of paper towels and tissue per bathroom.

We had the best stay at Blue Crab this weekend. The hot tub and heated pool was a hit for the kids and adults! We were able to bring our boats right up to the dock and beach area, go kayaking, enjoy bushwhackers and family time. We will be staying again!

Pictures and description of this property are accurate. We watched the sunrise from the beach and set from the balcony. This is a lovely property.

Blue Crab was fabulous for our 4 families with 5 kids under 8. There were so many amenities such as kayaking (life jackets included), sunbathing on the top of the pier, and the hot tub at night. It was a pleasant surprise to have cooled pool water, back home our pool water is unpleasant bath water temp, and it was a nice touch to have a cooled pool in the heat of August! I chose this property because you have the best of both worlds, the bay side in your backyard or the gulf side within walking distance. The gulf side beach was about 8 houses in distance from this property. We loaded up a vehicle with all of the ice chests and beach gear and dropped off majority of our group at the beach entrance and then the driver parked at the house and walked the short distance to join for the day. Another great thing is having the pier for fishing including the boat rental that picked us up at the end of the dock in our backyard. We brought my in-laws to help with the kids and they stayed in the bottom apartment which was more than enough space for them and gave them privacy away from the rest of the group. On the last day, the dryer broke in the main house however,we were able to use the washer/dryer downstairs and Harris quickly replaced the dryer within 24 hours. I would highly recommend this house as it has so many great options for everyone to enjoy!

Everything was great. We had a fabulous family vacation. The house was exactly as stated in the description and very clean. The only thing I would suggest would be the bed in the lower level should be a king since there is room for it and it wasn’t very comfortable. Other than that, it was perfect!!

Our large family had such a wonderful and incredible vacation at this property. Not only was it close to the beach, but when the beach was closed down, there were still tons of stuff to do such as kayak/canoe and fishing or playing in the pool/hot tub. The view in the evenings is so lovely and spectacular. We even called the property to see if we could stay a couple extra night. I highly recommend this property! We will absolutely be going back.!

Each year we stay in this area for our family vacation. This year we brought our entire family and a few additional teens. The private pool is everything we didn't know we were missing. The bay is very peaceful and this property offers spectacular views. The neighboring properties are very nice and the owners next door were great as well. The walk to the beach was a little further than I expected but it wasn't bad at all with a wagon in tow. The house itself easily housed our group of 8. There were tons of additional items offered in the house that made our stay better from the kayaks, tennis rackets, beach items, etc.. An added bonus was the option to bring our Frenchie. It allowed us to fully enjoy our stay without having to board her. We will 100% book this property for our future vacations!

House was very nice, great location and plenty of room for 5 adults. Access to water was also very good and the hot tub was an added benefit for our old bones.

We had such a good time at this vacation home! We have never been down to Florida and had so much fun! Kids really enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub! The set up of this vacation home was perfect for our family of 5. We didn't need the lower level but was still great! Very quiet neighborhood...perfect walking distance to the beach! Overall a great place to stay

Great stay at the Blue Crab. Had good weather and some nice down time. The layout was very conducive to group gatherings inside and out or private time also inside and out. Highly recommend a stay at the Blue Crab Perdido Key FL

Harris Vacations is the only team I use for booking amazing homes on the gulf. They are so helpful, very kind and thorough, and truly the homes are just beautiful. Our latest Perdido Key stay might be our favorite yet!

What a nice place. Plenty of room to stretch out and all the amenities we could have asked for. Great location on the water with fishing dock and sand on the back bay and a short walk to the beach. Will definately return! It did not hurt that the weather was outstanding as well.
