                Everything was better than expected. The house is very roomy and clean with most everything that you need provided. The owners live close by and when our air conditioning went out they responded quickly and courteously and had the problem solved within a couple of hours. We enjoyed hoping for, and watching for a jubilee, catching and eating blue crabs, sunsets, watching the mullett jump, bike rides on the trail along scenic 98, walking on the Point Clear board walk. eating at the Wash House just down the street and at Jesse's in Magnolia Springs, shopping at and visiting with the owner of Dr. Music in Fairhope and just enjoying the beautiful bay view. We will be back.

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                Thisw is a very nice, very clean, roomy, comfortable house, ver well maintained Yard is beautiful and well kept. Kitchen is convenient and well furnished. Owners were very accomodating. We enjoyed fishing on the pier which is very nice. We also enjoyed sitting on the porch and looking at the sunsets and exploring the lovely area. This house is located in a particularly desirable area on the Bay. The property was as advertised. If you are looking for a very nice place to stay, I highly recommend Punta Clara, however it is very basic and not luxurious. Beds are comfortable and clean, but again, not luxurious. I would recommend this rental to a friend. Also would recommend a visit to the Punta Clara Candy kitchen nearby as well as to Jesse's for dinner.

                Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                Relax and reconnect to simpler times—this is exactly what the Punta Clara House offers. We enjoyed our week long Thanksgiving vacation here. The house is comfortable, clean and spacious allowing plenty of elbow room for our group of 5 adults and 2 children. The covered porch is roomy, with a great view of the Bay and a nice place to enjoy the occasional afternoon rain shower. It was fun to watch the children catch their first fish (cane poles provided) on the pier and sequel with delight as we caught blue crabs on the crab deck (crab trap provided). The Punta Clara house easily supported our family reunion of 28 for an afternoon of fun filled memories. Thank you and we look forward to returning.
