10BR 9BA Extraordinary, upscale beachfront home. Private & Community Pools. Elevator. Icemakers and fridges, all floors. Wow!

These homes are always full. We own Emerald, Sapphire and Diamond, all right next door to each other. Sapphire and Emerald are the identical 12BRs. More of…more! Get two. 24 bedrooms. Why not?! Diamond (10BR) too. Side x side x side! 34 bedrooms… All 3 were fully booked last summer and all the major holidays almost a year in advance, sometimes two for our repeat guests! Act quick!

Diamond is a 10 bedroom family-friendly luxury beach home located directly on the beach in an exclusive, gated community with zero-entry pools. Handicapped accessible features. Elevator The perfect vacation home for large groups, or small ones that like lots of space!

Diamond will very comfortably sleep 29. No sleeper sofas! And, because this is a big family friendly place, several of these beds are in one room that’s perfect for either one big family or for most of the kids! Nestled on the third floor, this large family room has two twins, a futon, and 2 single bunks, sleeping up to 7!

2nd Flr NW BR: King
2nd Flr NE BR: King
3rd Flr SE BR: King
3rd Flr NE BR: King
3rd Flr: NW BR: King + Bunk Bed
3rd Flr SW BR: King
4th Flr Middle BR: Queen + Bunk Bed
4th Flr SW BR: 2 Twin/Single + 1 Futon + 2 Bunk Beds
4th Flr NW BR: King
4th Flr S BR: King w/ private wet bar!

All bunks are twin over twin at Diamond.

There is a beach side living room on the main floor, and another living room on the second floor. Need a beverage? There are wet bars with mini-fridges and stand-alone ice-makers on the second and third floor so you can save yourself the trip down the stairs (or elevator!). The second floor also has its own washer and dryer because when you are on vacation why would you want to carry your clothes up and down the stairs (or in the elevator) more than you absolutely have to!?

In addition to the community pool, Diamond at the Cottages at Romar also has its own private, elevated pool at living room level. Sit in your living room, watch your kids play in the pool outside, how cool is that!? And if 10 bedrooms isn’t big enough for you and your crew, check our Emerald and Sapphire, these two homes each have a whopping twelve, yes 12, bedrooms!

Please note that the Cottages at Romar neighborhood association has determined that no weddings or special events may be hosted in the property. This is applicable to our Jewels by the Sea. However, although you cannot host weddings or special events at the Diamond, Emerald, or Sapphire, you certainly can stay their during your trip and enjoy these large homes, their luxury, and the terrific neighborhood amenities.

Added a propane gas pool heater, so YES the pool is heatable to a maximum of 82′ (the high side of recommended rec pool temps) to take the chill off! This service is by request in advance with a per night surcharge for length of stay (gas is expensive right now, this does not actually recoup the cost!). Fee subject to change due to incredibly high gas rates right now. Any online quote will show the optional fee and its current pricing. You may also add it after booking by simply requesting the pool be heated any time after making the reservation and at least a few days before check in so we can get it on before you arrive. See our FAQ about heatable pools too.
You’ll love staying at the Diamond at the Cottages at Romar. You’ll wish you never had to go home. If you don’t book early, you might drive by Diamond and wish it were you, and not some other group, staying in such a nice vacation home!

The Sundancer

Sundancer, East & West
1205 W Beach Blvd

2023-11. Flash Summer 2024 Deal. Vacation like is 2019! Save $1500 or more. Be one of the first 2 to book Beach Axis or Sundancer, and you will be priced at 2019 pricing! Pre-pandemic deal as we take over managing these two great beachfront places! Pricing on will ALREADY reflect this deal, and you can see it as a line item discount on the book now page. Act fast!

July 2023. Brand new virtual tour. Check it out!

This listing is for BOTH sides of the Sundancer (East AND West) together as a single big home! There is a connecting door on the main level. You may also rent the east and west sides as stand alone units, under separate listings. This listing is for 10 bedrooms sleeping up to 36!

Even better than a single stand alone 10 bedroom home! 2 of everything (except the pool, and of course the refrigerators: you’d have FOUR fridges!).

We own the Sundancer East, Sundancer West, or you can book them together as a 10BR as Sundancer East & West!

Sundancer is a beautiful duplex located directly on the beach of the Gulf! Open the back doors and enjoy sun, surf, and sand!

Location. Location. Location. Right on the beach, The Sundancer duplex is in a terrific location: right across the street from Waves Grocery, a restaurant, ice cream, and more! In season: S&S Seafood is open. Order up some shrimp, corn, and potatoes steamed (I choose cajun, of course!). The pool on Sundancer is beachside, fairly sheltered, fenced, and open to the sun, and there is a lot of space under the home (on concrete) to escape the heat and sun if you need to do so!

Each side has 5 bedrooms

2nd Floor N Master BR: King
3rd Floor S BR: King
3rd Floor Middle BR: King
3rd Floor N BR: Two Triple Bunks (single over full)
4th Floor S Master: King

Additionally, there are Queen Sleeper Sofas in the 3rd floor lounge bonus room as well as in the 2nd Floor (main) living room.

ALL King bedrooms have their own en suite bath. The bunk room and bonus room QSS share a common bath.

Each side has TWO, yes two, master bedrooms, one on the main floor and the other on the 4th floor beachfront, each with a tub with separate shower.

TWO REFRIGERATORS
Two? Per side? Yes two. Because you won’t want to stay somewhere without an extra fridge once you have had them.

POOL
Big. Private to the two sides of the duplex: no sharing with other places nearby. The pool is open all year. It’s a big 25x14x3-5′ Rectangle Lounge chairs are provided around the pool. The pool is NOT heatable. You will find that to be rare, and clearly noted in a listing, and usually involve a per night surcharge. The pool is, however, open all year.

WIFI/INTERNET
YES! We have an awesome Eero mesh network to ensure excellent wifi coverage throughout this spacious home. Spotty coverage is always an issue for big places. Sure internet may work next to the router in the living room, but what about the far reaches of the home!? That’s why we installed a multi-node mesh network. And what’s the internet like? It is generally solid and ran > 100Mb down the last test–sufficient for several simultaneous video conference sessions for remote work and education. Internet is, of course, an amenity and subject to service provider outages (and guests “troubleshooting” it), especially with the havoc the sand and salt wreak on cabling and facilities, no more so than any other home on the beach though, and likely better since its close in and new construction!

PARKING
There is available onsite, offstreet, parking for at least 6 midsize vehicles if you use space under the home and stack well. In duplex units, please be neighborly about this.

SOAPS, TOWELS, COFFEE, GRILLS ETC ETC
As with most beach homes in the area, the local mgt co provide what they call a “starter supply” of soaps, toilet paper, and paper towels, etc. Enough for the first night to get you going! Please plan to bring or purchase additional supplies, and any cleaning or pantry supplies you may need, or to make a quick run to the store (or have it delivered!). You will want to bring beach towels or beach chairs as well. Because mgt cos will not generally support them, grills are not provided, though they are sometimes inherited from prior guests: your mileage may vary on this, and we usually assess and then go snag a small charcoal kettle when we come down ourselves. Also of note: at many locations, you may find the bunk beds (and certain other beds) are not fully made–instead a bedding pack is provided. This is a common practice for the local management companies, which is both green (if the bedding is not used, it doesn’t have to be laundered) AND more sanitary–housekeeping does not have to crawl on the bunks and so on to make the beds. Also also… all our homes have both drip coffee makers and Keurigs as well.

PETS
We do consider well-behaved canine furry friends at many locations. This requires owner pre-approval, and is subject to a pet fee (currently $250 per pet). Approval in a duplex location, especially for peak weeks, generally is only available for guests renting both sides of the duplex. Please inquire.

Really big group? I own 4 duplexes side by side. Can handle just about any group size!

No smoking please, but feel free to eat lots of shrimp, bask in the warm sun, and have a great time!

Pre-pandemic deal as we take over managing these two great beachfront places! Pricing will ALREADY reflect this deal, and you can see it as a line item discount on the book now page. Act fast!

Renovation complete. Brand new virtual tour! When in doubt, the virtual tour IS the latest and greatest pics and layout!

This listing is for Gulf & Golf at the Plantation, East & West (both sides!). 10 bedrooms, sleeping 44. Connecting door on the main level!

PLUS… Lower lodging taxes! Save 7% over a West Beach rental, right off the top, AND you can have your drinks, and umbrellas overnight, right on the beach, all year long, unlike beach homes in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores proper–even though it’s the same sugary sand beach!

Beachfront luxury, all the amenities of a private home AND of the resort community, for a lot less. Gulf & Golf! 5BR Sleeps 19. Right on the Beach. Resort Community! Pools, Tennis.

Please note: this home is absolutely beachfront. It is located right on the gulf, with nothing between you and the gulf except the sand dunes. However, as with many areas on the gulf, you CANNOT walk directly from the back of this home to the water because of the protected dunes. They serve a very important role in protecting the homes, and harboring wildlife, and walking over them is not allowed as it breaks them down. However, there is a nice wide boardwalk right off our little private cul de sac (in fact, right by the closest of the pools which is ALSO right on our cul de sac, 2 homes over, so “right there”). This short boardwalk takes you directly to the beach/water, and, as a bonus, is great for folks who may have mobility concerns or may be lugging stuff in wagons or what have you!

PLANTATION RESORT. AMENITIES GALORE!
The “Gulf and Golf” is located in the Plantation resort, next to the beautiful 18 hole Kiva Dunes Championship Golf Course. Approximately 12 miles west of Gulf Shores on Fort Morgan Parkway at Gulf Shores Plantation. Same great white sand beaches! Wonderful amenities, and at a great rate!

Kiva Grill and Sassy Bass Island Grill are both in the resort, and less than a half mile walk from this beachfront unit! Food, drink. Ultra convenient!

Amenities on the Plantation grounds include 1 indoor and 6 outdoor swimming pools, whirlpool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, putting green, game rooms, volleyball, secluded beach, and cabanas. What all is presently available? Let’s look!

6 Outdoor Pools

Adjacent to Kiva Dunes Golf Course
** Resort wide amenities subject to change, temporary or permanent closure, and are not guaranteed. Sorry!

Located on Fort Morgan, Gulf & Golf is close to many restaurants, golf courses, and other things to do, feels away from it all (but is only a short drive to all the hubbub on Gulf Shores itself), and is often a more cost-efficient choice for those who seek something a little more laid back. Plus, as an added bonus, our Fort Morgan vacation homes are not currently subject to the same restrictions on setting up umbrellas and other amenities overnight as those in Gulf Shores itself.

We offer HUGE discounts for month-long winter stays (up to 80%), a 7 for the price of 6 night special many times of the year (it is already factored into weekly pricing on VRBO!), and if you have a special request, e.g., for a non-Saturday check-in, we are happy to consider it. Please note, generally stays must be Saturday to Saturday during the summer–G&G is just way to popular and busy then to make exceptions. Sorry!

How can I help you? Looking forward to hosting you family or group!
