Slackwater
 
Enjoy a relaxing vacation on the water at Slackwater! By definition, Slackwater is a period of time in a body of tidal water when the water is completely unstressed. Unstressed is exactly how guests will feel in this new 4 bedroom 4 bathroom home which features ample living space with two expansive floors and over 2000 square feet in the prime West Beach area of Gulf Shores.  Located in the new Pass Time Community, Slackwater is just steps from both the Gulf beach and a local favorite beach Little Lagoon Pass. This low-density community has a sparkling pool shared by only nine homes! With the pool directly outside the door and newly constructed fishing pier, guests can experience what Gulf Shores has to offer without leaving the home! If activity is your thing, Slackwater is just a five minute drive to the center of town for dining, shopping, and entertainment. 
 

About Slackwater

Slackwater is the perfect beach home for your large family or even multiple families, with ample space for 12 guests and parking for up to 4 cars. On the main level, beautiful beachy decor, a wide open floor plan, and wall-to-wall windows are the cornerstone of coastal elegance. Plenty of seating and an extra-large TV provide an excellent space for entertaining and relaxing all while overlooking the gorgeous Little Lagoon. The fully stocked kitchen has counter space for preparing meals for a crowd and the window overlooking the pool brings the outside in. On the huge covered deck, relax in the captains chairs and enjoy the breeze! The main floor also features one bedroom with a king sized bed and TV as well as one full bathroom with a walk in shower. 
 
Moving upstairs, the huge master suite has its own private balcony with plenty of seating and a great view of the water. Sit outside and relax before bed to the sounds of the beach. Guests will also find a TV and expansive master bathroom with dual sinks and a tub/shower combo. Across the hall is another king bedroom with TV and private bathroom. Finally, down the hall is the kids' retreat, a bunk room equipped with a TV, DVD player, private full bathroom and two sets of bunk beds, one full and one twin to sleep 6.  
 
Outside Slackwater, guests are just steps to a local favorite beach, Little Lagoon Pass. The Pass is the perfect swimming spot for families with children, featuring beautiful white sand, sparkling shallow water, and the perfect location to launch a kayak for a day of fishing. Speaking of fishing, follow the paved walking path to the brand new fishing pier, stretching 100+ feet out over the lagoon and enjoy a day of reeling them in! Bring a propane tank and grill up your catch on the large gas grill provided for guest use. 

**Pet-friendly property- additional fee (s) apply**

The pool can be heated from March 1 - May 31 and again from September 1 - December 31.

 
Guests can even access the beautiful Gulf WITHOUT CROSSING A STREET! A few steps beyond the Lagoon Pass beach leads to the sandy shores of the Gulf! Simply follow the walking path below the bridge and find yourself directly on the beach! The prime location of this gorgeous new home along with its expansive interior, sparkling pool, and easy access to TWO beaches and a fishing pier make Slackwater the perfect location for your family vacation.

We had an amazing time on our vacation! The property was perfect and in a great location. The kids loved the swimming pool which was right outside our door. The kitchen was equipped with everything imaginable: crockpot, blender, griddle, etc. We only ate out one meal the whole week! There was a cabinet full of games, books and puzzles for rainy days or hot afternoons.

We stayed at the Slackwater house, and it was perfect for our beach getaway! We were 2 families with kids and there was plenty of space, comfortable rooms, a kitchen fully stocked with equipment (zero consumables though!!….meaning no salt, pepper, olive oil, ziplock bags, aluminum foil, etc), incredible views of the lagoon and 2 huge balconies. And we loved being able to walk to the beach without crossing any streets! Would definitely come back again!!

This home was incredible! Beautiful & simple decor, comfortable & we loved the extra large table which easily seated our party of 9 (4 adults + 5 kids). Beautiful view of the lagoon from the main great room (kitchen/dining/living) and both large balconies. The walk to the beach was quick & easy, especially using the wagon provided. We did a ton of cooking and the house was equipped with everything we needed and then some. Do note that you will need to bring anything consumable (i.e. olive oil, salt/pepper, spices, ziplock bags, aluminum foil, etc.) Communication with the property manager was stellar! I received a welcome text upon arrival. And, although the internet was out during our stay, they promptly sent a repair person to fix the issue. Unfortunately for us it wasn't an easy fix so it wasn't up and running until the morning of our checkout, but that was no fault of the property manager. We look forward to returning to Slackwater in the future! *** Don't forget to bring beach towels and cooking consumables to ensure a seamless vacation!

Check-in was easy, and the property was clean and in a great spot. Communication from property management was also great. My only complaint was there wasn’t any extra toilet paper, paper towels, or dishwasher detergent. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a nice family vacation in Gulf Shores. Property was well maintained and looked just like the pictures on the listing. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach. 2 of the toilets weren't working properly when we arrived, but had a plumber come promptly to fix the issue. They did have some beach items to use, unfortunately several chairs were broken, so couldn't use them. Overall, we had a great stay.

Recently visited this location 6 family members, there was room for more. Awesome vacation for any family. Viewing and visiting the lagoon and the beach was so relaxing. Pooling area appeared to be very clean.The living room, dining area and the kitchen was very spacious. Plenty of utensils, appliances etc. Sitting on the deck watching the pelican , people fishing, walking the trail getting their exercise in for the day . Fishes was bitting, people-friendly. Not able to see Netflix, but it was ok. Enjoyed the trip I was there on sept. 11-14 the trip was much needed. Booked the trip guys it's worth every dollar..

Great location, beautiful house!

by Pamela
As a group of 6 adults there was plenty of room for all of us and then some. The location was perfect. Short walk to the beach. We didn't use the pool but did use the pool deck for some exercising. Great balconies with a fantastic view. Not all VRBOs have spices and such, this one had NONE just be warned. They did tell us that ahead of time, but we were hoping for basics (oil, salt, pepper) that weren't there. No big deal. Rouses grocery was our favorite. The house itself was clean, very nice, had lots of utensils, pots, pans, even Tupperware for us to save our leftovers while we were there. Overall we had a fantastic time! And would probably return to this property, or another one managed by this company. They sent text messages throughout our stay to ensure everything was good. Highly recommend!

Fabulous

by Kimarie
We traveled with 3 families from Wisconsin. We had a 7 month old, 2 yr old, 4 yr old, 5 yr old, 8 yr old, 9 yr old, and a 14 yr old. The house was perfect for all ages, especially since it has a booster seat and a play pen. We were very thankfully for each family having their own bathrooms and all the necessary utilities in the kitchen. Great location! Thank you for letting us stay!

Lagoon / Beach Paradise

by Cheryl
This was our first time visiting Gulf Shores and Slackwater #5 was all as described and more! The house was amazing, we all had our own room and plenty of space. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and the grill was so nice also! The deck furniture was comfortable and we loved sitting and watching the activity on the lagoon and pier. The house was clean and so relaxing that we didn't want to leave! we could not believe how peaceful and quiet it was. We loved the short walk to the beach and watching the birds on the lagoon. We were all so amazed at the sand on the beach, so fun to just walk on the beach and look at all the shells and sea life. We walked to the beach and saw some amazing sunsets. Watched the dolphins in the ocean, and just relaxed watching and listening to the ocean. A few highlights of our trip were visiting Fort Morgan, walking on the Gulf Shores Park fishing pier, LuLu's and the Yard. We definitely will be back! Getting the text reminders and info for checking in was a nice touch! Thank you Harris Properties!

by Sherry
We had a wonderful trip. We took a short trip just to get away. Although we didn't realize how cold it would get we still had a wonderful trip. The house was beautiful, very clean and had everything we needed. Would love to come back when it's warm.

Great Condo

We loved the space this property gave our family of 10 and more who came to hangout. Loved the balcony overlooking the bay. Great location!

Good Location

by Caryn
The location to the beach was very convenient. It also had a nice lagoon area right next door that was great for the little kids in our group. The property had a nice outdoor shower for rinsing off sand after spending several hours at the beach, and the community pool was very convenient and nice when we didn't want to go in the ocean. I liked this property it was very comfortable for our party of 8.

Family Vacation

by Denise
First time ever in this area and first ever family vacation. This place was fabulous for all of us. Grandchildren 9 thru 3 and adults. Easy access to beach and lagoon which kids loved for catching Hermit Crabs. Pool was refreshing , clean and never crowded. The house itself was immaculate and fully stocked for whatever you could possibly need. Plenty of items in kitchen for 9 of us. We are already talking about next tear same place. It's a 5 star!!

by Ashley
We had a total of 5 small kids(under the age of 5!) and this was a great location. they had all the outdoor stuff we needed. easy walk to the lagoon "beach" area and just a little further for the actual beach. check and check out were easy. the only complaint was there were no trashbags or paper towels when we arrived. this was easily solved the next day once we were able to make a grocery run but it would have been nice to have a few trash bags handy.
