LOTS of Labor Day Weekend Music

The Hangout plans a Cajun-style Labor Day Weekend that includes free concerts featuring bands from Louisiana and an authentic Cochon de Lait Pig Roast. Sink your feet into the sand and dance under the stars as you listen to the sounds of Marc Broussard on September 3 and Wayne Toups & Zydecajun the next night at The Hangout. For a rockin’ good time, buy your tickets now at Ticketmaster for The Rock Allegiance Tour (Sept. 4) and Kid Rock (Sept. 5) at The Wharf Amphitheater.


You also deserve a discount, so let Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Fort Morgan and Perdido Key be your stage and we’ll give you TWO FREE NIGHTS.

Catch a Great Deal as Prices Fall

What are Specials, Hot Deals and Speed Vacations?

Vacation Rental Special – This is a promotion that applies to the majority of properties, houses and condos, with only a few exceptions. As we approach a season or an event, these specials will be announced by email, which you will receive as a subscriber, and will be listed online. A promo code will be listed with each special so you may claim your discount online or provide it to our team when calling to make your reservation.

Hot Deal – An individual property owner chooses to discount their property at a greater discounted rate than the current Vacation Rental Special. These individual Hot Deals can be found online through a special search. From our homepage, simply click All Rental Specials and then the Hot Deals icon at the left, and you can enter your search dates to find a property that best suits your needs. It’s almost like finding buried treasure.

Speed Vacation – Basically this means a 2- or 3-night gap of time between booked reservations where you benefit by filling the gap. The 2-night gap discount is 22% and the 3-night discount is a FREE night. Check out the details online and enjoy the savings by fitting your short “speed vacation” into an available time slot at select properties. These gaps occur more frequently during the summer season but can still be found in other seasons. 

We encourage you to “Like” us on Facebook to stay connected to your favorite beach. We post news about the coast, announce contests, showcase properties, and sometimes even make available an upcoming special one or two days in advance of the public announcement. It’s a great vehicle for connecting you to the Gulf Coast.
