There is also a screen porch to sit and watch the waves crashing on the beach. If you need an afternoon siesta there is a hammock on the porch for relaxing or capturing a few surreal moments while gazing at the Emerald Coast.

After a day of fun in the sun you can retire to one of the 6 sea-color pastel bedrooms. Accommodations to sleep 18 include 3 king size beds, 2 queen size beds, 6 twin or single beds, 1 sleep sofa or futon. Each bedroom has a high def television with a 47” television in the Master bedroom. Two bedrooms have private balconies for that last late night thrilling view before slipping off into dreamland.

There are 5 bathrooms in the house with a jetted tub in the master bathroom.

A few extras we would like to share with you about Change of Pace is the large covered area under the house for up to 6 cars. In addition, there is parking for an RV or boat and trailer. There is a picnic table for outside dining and a swing for a retreat and a good book if the mood hits you.

From the moment you arrive at Change of Pace you will create memories of a lifetime to share and enjoy with your family and friends.

With soft white sand and emerald water, Gulf Shores is Alabama’s original beach town. Its lazy days by the water and pleasure-filled nights on the town have been attracting visitors for decades. This charming coastal town, with its something for everyone mentality, has become a favorite spot for families gathering each year. From a relaxing round of golf, to the sounds of laughter at amusement parks, to tantalizing tastes at restaurants you will be in paradise from the time you arrive until you leave.

For two weeks in July, this is our home away from home. Walking into the kitchen on that first day, well it feels like we've come home. It is clean, the location is perfect, and the house perfectly suited to our needs. Then of course being welcomed by Metri with the delicious key lime pies? That is above and beyond. Walking out of the kitchen on that last morning always brings a few tears. Change of Pace is our happy place.

This is our third year here, and as always, we really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location, where the beach is not crowded. The kitchen is large and well-equipped. We really enjoyed the screen porch as well. The house needed some minor repairs, which Metri made promptly.

Change of Pace made for a wonderful vacation home for 4 families. This beachfront house is in an ideal situation in a quiet beach and road area, away from the crowds, yet just a short drive to the downtown area. The house was clean and well-equipped (LOVED the under the counter ice maker!) Metri was a great host, easy to work with and readily available. I highly recommend and would stay here again!

We rented the home for our crew to do a photo shoot and work to close out our week It was amazing. The home was right on the beach it was spacious and clean. The beach was very private and we simply had the best time. We loved that the upstairs was kid central and they loved that that they had thier own space.

We rented Change of Pace and the house next door, Here to Dream, for a family wedding. Change of Pace has a large kitchen which was perfect for preparing the food, large living room for gathering, large bedrooms for guests and large space under the house for the rehearsal dinner and reception. The house had everything we needed and was very clean! The weather was perfect for a sunset wedding. Demetri accommodated our wedding needs. It was the perfect location for families from 6 states to escape hurricane Irma and celebrate a new marriage. I could not imagine a better facility than Change of Pace for this occasion. Our family is already dreaming up another reason to come back to "our beach house." Thanks for all you did Demitri. See you again soon!!

Great experience. Beaches are not crazy like the high rise beaches. Beach was natural . Took time getting used to the drift wood on shore. Distance wasn't too far but if you frequent GS 2-3 times day you are staying too far out.

Third time renting this property. Literally steps from the beach. We enjoyed great temps in Oct-Nov and spent most days walking the beach or sunning on the deck. The screened in porch is a Fantastic location for sunrise and sunset watching. The house is roomy enough for large families and arranged in a way that privacy is not an issue. In my opinion West Beach has the absolute best beaches in the world. property manager Metri is ALWAYS attentive and professional. Our coffee maker stopped working during the first week, Metri brought a new one the next day. Great location, great house, great property manager- the complete package!

Our family of 18 (8 adults, 10 kids) stayed at Change of Pace and it was a perfect fit! There was plenty of room for everyone and the main areas were large enough to easily accommodate us. The kitchen was well stocked and the second fridge and sink were so helpful. The location was fantastic and the house was very clean upon arrival. The only issues we had were with the sliding door constantly sticking but it didn't put a damper on our stay. The home is in need of some updates but again, we had a fantastic stay. Demetri was a dream to work with and that key lime pie was so amazing that my husband called to ask where we could buy more and he brought us another one! He saw to our every need and took very good care of us. The kitchen has been updated and Demetri brought 2 new charcoal grills during our stay.

Change Of Pace is located on a lovely beach. We walked for miles every morning looking for seashells. Our neighbors surf casted and caught lots of fish. The home is comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped. There is plenty of room for families. It is a very cheery atmosphere. Demetrius, the manager, is very quick to respond to any concerns, and helpful. I highly recommend this fun home.

"Change of Pace" is a great house, very large open living area with huge kitchen. The under cabinet ice maker and 2 sinks and 2 refrigerators make it so easy for large groups. Demetri is fabulous! He answers your calls immediately. He can answer any questions you may have about the property or the area. Paradise Gulf Properties are so easy to work with. We have booked with them for our daughter's wedding in May also.

Change of Pace has a floor plan that is perfect for multiple family units. Having your own bathroom with large groups makes it work. We loved each bedroom with the variety of art and colors and they were divided up perfectly. Then the kitchen was fun to cook in and the large table made dinners a special thing with little work.
The beach is right outside the door and private. Neighbors each keep to their area in front of their house. We got spoiled on parts with this home. The water changed each day with the tide which made it very interesting. We went from some seaweed, to clearer, to jellyfish, to totally clear. Fun waves to totally calm, and always dolphins going by. Saw an otter, crab, stingray, and shells. Caught ocean catfish, and two other kinds of fish. Loved the freedom the space gave for everyone to do their thing--yoga, fish, board, build sandcastles, fly kites, walk for sunsets, etc. It was a treat to be here. Thought we would be driving far to everything else, but only 5 min to 15 min to places we went for pizza, groceries, etc. Only place I cleaned on my own was to sweep and hose off the sand at the outdoor shower area. I liked the area clear for walking and sitting. As the host and hostess we even got to relax since the house provides naturally to all ages.

We had a wonderful visit with our extended famuly. 16 people from 5 to 84! There was pleny of room for all to sleep comfortably with ample bathrooms. The screened-in porch with the hammock was great for afternoons and evenings. It is an easy walk to the beach and it was nice to be able to go back and forth from beach to house. Plenty of parking also. The kitchen, dining room, great room area is open and large enough that we all could congregate together.

We have been spending a week on the Gulf for over fifty years; this was our first trip to Gulf Shores. It was an easy road trip, about 6 hours. The beach house was great, room for all of us to be together yet have private space too. We have booked the same property for next year, the hightest compliment we can give.
Metri was wonderful, responsive to our every need, very helpful. We look forward to returning in 2016.

Our vacation rental was great! Demetri was very helpful with anything we needed! The house has a great kitchen and has a wide variety of pots and pans! Even has a crockpot!! Plenty of dishes and utensils! We loved how close the house was to the beach and the area under house was wonderful especially the swing! The house had sand toys to for the kids which was great since we had left ours at home! We definitely we stay here again! Loved the key lime pie that Demetri welcomed us with when we got there the first day! Wonderful costumer service!

This is the second time we have stayed at Gulf Shores in a Kenyan Investments' property. Last year we stayed at Here to Dream, but because we had a larger group going on vacation with us this year, we needed a larger house.Change of Pace suited our needs perfectly. We had a total of 13 people with us on this vacation, and this house provided plenty of space to spread out, relax and enjoy the view. Change of Pace was clean, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed to comfortably stay for an entire week. The large refrigerator held all of the groceries we brought with us and the kitchen was stocked with all of the cooking utensils and appliances that we needed. The property manager, Demetri, met us at the house upon our arrival and greeted us with a delicious Key Lime pie, souvenir cups and a smile. He explained a few details about the house (i.e., a/c, door locks, etc...) and answered all of the questions that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Change of Pace and hope to return for future family vacations.

Unbeatable view of the beach. Nice private area away from the hoards of people. Clean property and nicely appointed. Would definitely stay again. Manager easy to reach and helpful. Clear view of beach from balcony unlike some other properties in area with dunes that impede view.

This house is awesome! I have never had a kitchen so well set up for 8 adults and 7 children! Our meals ran very smoothly. The living area is so spacious. We never felt cramped. We loved being on such a quiet area of beach. We will be staying here again!

We had a wonderful stay at "Change Of Pace" in February. The house is spacious and has beautiful views of the gulf and lagoon. The furniture is very comfortable and the kitchen is well supplied. The location is close to restaurants and shopping. The manager, Dimitrius was wonderful to work with. He was prompt and attentive to our needs at all times. I highly recommend this rental property!

This is a perfect house for a family vacation! There was plenty of room for our group of 8 adults and 7 kids. Plenty of private sleeping areas to get away from the group and "public" areas to enjoy family games and meals. The house was clean and in a great location to the beach and all the retail amenities you would ever need. Highly recommend this house !!!

My wife and I wanted a small beach wedding with only close family to attend. We ended up having 13 total people stay in the house. the house was absolutely perfect for our purposes!!! Beautiful view of the ocean. There was a large outdoor deck with plenty of lounge chairs. Large screened in patio also with plenty of chairs and a hammock. Large living room and super kitchen all with a wide open view of the beach. The master bedroom had a huge bathroom and the other rooms were easily large enough for all our guests to move around.

This was the perfect house for us. Everyone was thrilled at their accommodations and amenities. Everything worked and the key lime pie waiting for us from Demetrious was delicious!!!

Return trips to Gulf Shores are definitely in our future and any property Demetrious is associated with will be considered!!

Wonderful trip all the way around!!

We stay in Gulf Shores every year. This was our first stay at the Change of Pace beach house. We had a rather large group, so it was really nice having enough space to spread out. The location is great, close enough to town but also far enough away. The property manager is a pleasure to work with, hes already helping us plan our trip for next year.

This was our 10th annual family beach vacation and the best so far. Change Of Pace was a very comfortable home with plenty of room. The upstairs rooms with so many beds were perfect for all the grandchildren but the kitchen and den area impressed us the most. The home is so open and roomy that when we were all in the common area together we were very comfortable. With the large bar and dining table each seating 8 we could all sit and eat together. The large screened porch overlooking the beach was prefect as was the close proximity to the beach. We enjoyed it so much that upon returning home we booked Change Of Pace for next year!

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. We stayed on the beach 6 of our 7 days. One day we drove into Pensecola to tour the USS Alabama. Highly recommend it, it gave us a whole new respect for what those men had to endure. Change of Pace was everything the pictures showed. Bright and cheerful, clean, never felt crowded (12 family members), plenty of space for us. Accommodations we're perfect with the exception of the bathrooms. They needed a little TLC.
Metri was like a dear friend the first time we met him, very nice. The family left a few items and Metri went out of his way to mail them back to St. Louis. We don't get the opportunity to vacation often but would certainly return to Change of Pace.

The property was just like the pictures and everything that we had hoped for in a rental. I was looking for a place close to the beach with a porch to feel the ocean breeze while watching the children play. We had 10 adults and 6 children and we all had plenty of room. The kitchen and family area was big enough for everyone to be in there at one time. Just a perfect place for a large family. Demitri was very helpful and everyone loved the key lime pie that he brought us. I would definitely recommend this beach house to anyone with a large family.

We appreciated the way he compensated us for the few discrepancies in the house (leaks during the storm). I would recommend more towels, especially in the kitchen. Other than that, the house was perfect.

We had 17 people in our group and it could accommodate all of us easily. The kitchen is huge and has dual sinks. It was able to seat all of us, so that we could have meals together. The room with the twin beds was perfect for the kids and allowed them their own space when we weren't at the beach. The beach was clean and very private. Overall, a great experience. We would definitely stay here again!

Change of Pace was the perfect beach house for our family vacation! In addition to it being spacious and beautifully decorated, the huge kitchen and screen porch really added to the quality of our stay. We were able to see the kids on the beach from the kitchen, family room, screen porch, and sun deck - a real plus! We loved the well stocked kitchen and large dining area, and having a second refrigerator was great. The layout of the home allowed us to congregate for meals and family fun, yet escape for a little privacy. Another plus was the amount of covered parking. Demetrious was most helpful with making the reservation and following up on details. He even checked on us during our stay. This level of personal attention far surpasses that of other rental agencies. We've stayed in a lot of homes in Gulf Shores over the years, but Change of Pace was by far the best!

We had a great stay at Change of Pace. We had a group of eleven people including six teenagers and one grandmother. The upstairs rooms were wonderful for the kids and the lower bedrooms for the adults. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could want for cooking and we especially loved the ice machine. Demetrios was very helpful if we had any questions or needed a contact in the area. Overall great experience and would recommend to anyone.

This was our 8th Christmas at Change of Pace---wow! so spiffy with the new stainless steel appliances including a French door refrigerator, granite counter tops, and laminate wood floors. I should have planned jazzier meals. The kitchen is a joy to cook in and so well equipped. I love it that the dining table can seat all 13 of us. The other important plus here is there are great mattresses on the beds.

The beach was beautifully restored and full of shells...such fun to go down the deck stairs and step right into the sand or sit in the swing (my favorite spot)and watch my grandkids play in the sand.

The weather did not cooperate--35-45degrees so our hoodies were the attire of every day. The kids played in the water until they turned blue. And we all played volley ball in the sand when we could, and used the Gulf Shores Rec Center frequently. It is a great place. This trip we proved that fun is in you and not in the situation.

After the kids left, we hosted 20 people for a tailgate supper and to watch the Alabama/Notre easy to do in this house. Metri was always ready to help---checking to see if we needed anything. We will certainly be back to "our beach house" for our ninth Christmas here. Thank you everyone.
