Overview

Photos and Description of the Elberta vacation villa rental

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

You have found Osprey Villa! The most unique and sophisticated vacation villa available on the American Riviera, and one of the most sought after properties on VRBO!

Osprey Villa is the ultra-quiet get-away thats only minutes away from all the tourists and tourists spots. Unbelievable. Located in the Pirates Cove area, on the north side of Wolf Bay, about 3 miles due north of Orange Beach.

It's QUIET here! Easy to get to, and away from the crowds and traffic! Those who are used to vacationing with the masses in the standard wicker-furnished beach shoebox, well, get ready..... Get out of the box and out of the traffic!

Osprey Villa is maintained and cared for to the highest of standards, and those who know and enjoy the difference will appreciate our unique home. This is an extraordinary piece of real estate, unlike anything in this area, and is fully equipped for a unique and relaxing vacation.

Interesting and unique features and amenities:

Outside:

Kayaks - a fleet of kayaks, no less; bicycles; two private outside showers & pottys (one on each end of the property - with water views); a stone fire pit at the water's edge; plenty of picnic and patio tables; a swim-out beach; boat dockage for up to a 50-foot yacht; covered parking for three vehicles; covered pool lanai; 3 wrought iron tables for outdoor dining; chase lounges; a large deck down close to the water; basketball goal with nice court...

Cabana:

Screened-in and ready for cooking! The cabana features an antique table w/chairs, 2 ceiling fans, a full size gas range, full size refrigerator, antique refrigerator, stereo system with JBL speakers, commercial ice maker, huge stainless steel gas grill, big pots & pans, sink, and nice bar.

Inside:

EVERY room has a fantastic view! Every single room! Unique Italian porcelain floors throughout; gourmet kitchen featuring a gas range and butcher block counters; a bamboo floored loft overlooking the living areas; two large flat screens; pool table; and massive custom glass mosaic tiled showers.

Most don't want to leave Osprey Estate when they get here. BUT, if it's interaction with others that you desire, you are a short boat ride to The Wharf, where you'll find all kinds of restaurants, bars, shops, Rave theater, and a world class amphitheater featuring the top entertainment available. Also a short boat ride is the World famous LuLu's (famous because LuLu is Jimmy Buffet's sister and he sometimes shows up at the restaurant unannounced!), Tacky Jacks, or Acme Oyster House.. The beautiful Soldiers Creek Golf Club is only a five minute drive to the North. The infamous Pirates Cove is 4 miles away (best 'dive' bar and hamburger joint on the Coast). Are you a shopper? The largest outlet mall in the South is only 10 minutes back into civilization. (can't get there by boat though).

And yes, a large pontoon boat is on site and experienced boaters are welcome to use it! (you pay for the fuel you use and a damage deposit is required). The boat is great for sightseeing, sun tanning, exploring, fishing...! Its slow, but it is reliable and very economical.

Something you won't find at most vacation rentals....Trees! Osprey Estate has thousands of trees and plants! Palms, live oaks, magnolias, river burch, cypress, red oaks, oleanders, bananas, loblolly pines, redbuds, azaleas, lemons, satsumas, peach.... goes on and on - we've catalogued over 5000 individual plants, and nearly 100 species.

I know all of this 'sounds' really great. But possibly the best feature Osprey Villa has to offer is the lack of noise. What you are likely to hear: Osprey, pelicans, ducks, geese, dolphins, speckle trout, the occasional fishing boat or dolphin tour boat, the occasional cigarette boat making a high speed run in the Intercoastal, the salt water pool dribbling over the infinity edge, the breeze blowing through the palms, or maybe some Buffet or Marley tunes coming from your Cabana.

What you are NOT likely to hear: Traffic, crowds, announcements, elevator dings, horns, sirens, complaints, or annoying people (unless you bring 'em....and PLEASE don't bring annoying people)....

Osprey Villa is very easy to get to. The Villa is located approximately 35 minutes from Pensacola Airport, and one hour from the Mobile Airport. Drive times are approximately four hours from Birmingham, five hours from Atlanta, nine hours from Dallas / Houston / Nashville. We also offer an airport car service if needed for a very reasonable fee.

Grocery service is available :-) For a small fee, you can have the pantry and refrigerator stocked before you arrive. Just send us your shopping list. . We can also assist with catering for your parties, and helicopter tours or hot air balloon rides over the beautiful American Riviera.
