Imagine on your next Gulf Coast vacation being able to walk right out your back door and be just feet from your own private pool. Toss your beach towel on your lounge chair, relax in the sunshine and listen. The only sounds you hear are your family’s squeals of delight as they splash in the pool, the rolling surf and the call of the seagulls overhead.

You can have this experience at one of Meyer Vacation Rentals’ beach houses in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach and Perdido Key.

Below are just a few of Meyer Vacation Rentals' beach houses that feature private pools.
