Where are we going today?

Situated on a canal-like river, just 10 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Shores, Beach'n'River Canoe and Kayak Rental offers on-site launching onto a white, sandy creek tributary only 100 yards leading into the beautiful, mysterious Bon Secour River. Search for the local legendary "ice box" where you can park your boat and cool off with a chilly swim! You will feel like an adventurer, dodging heavy wisteria vines and weaving your way in and around fallen logs, discovering a new land. You may witness turtles scurrying off logs as you approach. Bream and Spotted Bass flee to favorite hiding spots. The sounds of birds fill the air. Huge, contorted live oaks drip with moss adding an eerie air to your float. The brackish water invites dolphins and you may see them play alongside you as you float. Herons, pelicans and several types of ducks share the water and will dive in and around you as you quietly float by. Pre booking is naturally essential.

    I have never taken the time to log on and personally write a review, but felt it was extremely necessary in this instance. I wish it was to tell everyone what a wonderful experience this was, but that is not the case. During a family reunion we organized a kayaking experience in hopes to make wonderful family memories. Two separate family members spoke to Betty on the phone as there were some questions regarding kayaking with children and inexperienced kayakers.

    You will not find a better location for a vacation that takes you away from the crowds. You get the privacy and quiet of a rural atmosphere. A place that makes you feel right at home. This is a turn key operation with everything you need for a vacation and then some already provided. This is a large house with all the amenities, large decks on front and back, and river in back yard. You can spend hours floating the river and canals while admiring the scenery. You can relax on the deck and enjoy the peace and quite. I would recommend this to anyone...Read More

    My family and I stayed here over the Christmas holidays and loved it! It was convenient to the beach, and we took advantage of the paddleboat and kayaks provided by the owners- what an idyllic afternoon! There are some public tennis courts nearby and we enjoyed playing before heading to the beach to cool off. Bring your appetite, there are plenty of seafood restaurants nearby including the tinroof cafe and billys seafood.

    This "off the beaten path house" will pleasantly surprise you with the feeling of seclusion, yet it is close to all the beach action you can handle. The house is filled with little details and character, with all the ammenities of home.

    Breakfast on the patio was relaxing and the kayaking on the river behind the house was entertaining.... a great way to enjoy nature!

    We were close to the beach when we wanted to go there and right up the street was outlet shopping or groceries, when needed.

    I recommend this for anyone that wants the best of both...Read More

    We didn't stay in the house, but only because we had a timeshare on the shore. We did, however, spend the afternoon floating the Bon Secour with Beachnriver. What a day! We have been in many places around the world, and this, to us, was absolutely world class, and an unforgettable adventure. Please do not miss the opportunity to experience the river with Beachnriver. Our only regret is that we already had digs; otherwise, we would have rented that cute house in a heartbeat!

I have never taken the time to log on and personally write a review, but felt it was extremely necessary in this instance. I wish it was to tell everyone what a wonderful experience this was, but that is not the case. During a family reunion we organized a kayaking experience in hopes to make wonderful family memories. Two separate family members spoke to Betty on the phone as there were some questions regarding kayaking with children and inexperienced kayakers. We were given a price of $35 for a single kayak and $40 for a double. Once we got there they pulled the old bait and switch and told us it would be $75 for a double. This meant $185 for a family of five. As we were trying to determine who was going to stay and kayak and who was going to leave, we were interrupted several times by River Rick. We were attempting to reorganize 20 people and make sure the children and inexperienced kayakers were going to be safe. Our group was comprised of educated, business professionals and children and ages ranged from 3-58. It takes a while to organize. In the meantime River Rick kept telling us that the $40 was a misunderstanding. We attempted to explain that we were just trying to ensure the safety of our entire group. He left and returned to tell us he didn't like our attitudes and cursing was not allowed on his property. No one in our group said any curse words or disrespected River Rick. He said he was now not going to rent to us for fear that we may damage his property. As we were returning to our cars in disbelief and shock he told us that we could go to "[email protected] Barrel" for all he cared. We were extremely offended that he would speak to any of us this way especially with children present. I simply post this so that others can avoid the extremely rude and odds treatment that my family had to endure. Thank goodness there are so many other great experiences to be had in Gulf Shores. Just avoid this place.

I recommend this for anyone that wants the best of both worlds but easy on the pocketbook!
