When considering a vacation rental for a beach visit, there are several types of properties to choose from for your accommodations.

For example, maybe you prefer reserving a condominium, where there are amenities that are shared with your complex’s neighbors, such as swimming pools, barbecue areas, whirlpools and more. Or, maybe you prefer a house, where there may be fewer on-site amenities but a greater sense of solitude and a beach area that feels more private.

For others, a duplex—a type of beach rental that could be described as being somewhere in between a condo and a house—could be the perfect option.

Duplexes come with the same great views, private decks or balconies, and many of the same amenities you would find in a condo with fewer people to share them.

Pearl, a large duplex in Gulf Shores, features 10 bedrooms on each side. Renting both sides, Pearl East and Pearl West, guests will find this property is capable of sleeping up to 56 people, making it right-sized for multi-family reunions or other large gatherings. You may rent one or both sides.

Pearl, like several duplexes available through Meyer Vacation Rentals, has its own private Gulf-front pool that is shared on both sides of the duplex. Sixteen bedrooms are king-sized, and there are four bunk rooms, perfect for the youngest of your vacationers.

Access doors in the kitchens and second-floor living rooms allow you to open up the spaces. The second-floor living rooms also feature a wet bar with under-the-counter ice maker and refrigerator. An elevator rises from the ground level to all floors. Each floor has its own washer and dryer.

Pearl is one of 60+ duplex properties in Meyer Vacation Rentals’ inventory of beach rentals featuring a variety of amenities.

If you don’t need something quite as large as Pearl, there are duplexes of all sizes to consider, such as The Big Easy, for example, which is located in Perdido Key.

The west side of this duplex sleeps up to 12 people in its three-bedroom layout—a king bedroom, a queen bedroom, a bedroom with two twin beds, and a sleeper set. A private deck is also part of the duplex’s offerings.

Next time you crave a beach vacation that combines privacy combined with a great view and fun amenities, reserve one of Meyer Vacation Rentals’ duplex beach rentals.
