Lillian house description
Sit back on the sun-drenched front porch in this spacious contemporary Perdido Bay home that can easily accommodate a large family gathering. On the main floor is a full kitchen, living/dining area, bedroom with adjoining shower room, laundry room and sun porch. Second floor, three bedrooms, including master, with three full bathrooms. January through March are cool, but gorgeous. Some winter days can reach the 70 degree mark. Bring your sunscreen! Summer months can reach temperatures in the high 90 degree mark.
Wake up to a beautiful sunrise on beautiful Perdido Bay. Every morning is a unique sunrise experience. Even a rainy day has its own beauty. Spend your day kayaking and canoeing in the Forever Wilderness of Perdido Bay. Or ... just relax. If you are interested in a massage during your stay, I will be happy to arrange someone to visit you at the property. There is an additional charge for massage services.
The gorgeous Gulf of Mexico is a short drive away for a fun day on the white, sandy beaches. At night shine your flashlights along the shore in the sand and look for little native crabs scurrying around.
Relax and unwind in the enclosed sun porch with spectacular views of the Bay. Listen to your favorite opera/music, enjoy a good book, be inspired to write a book, knit a sweater or create a beautiful painting; just the spot for inspiration to get your creative juices flowing. In the evening, prepare a lovely candlelit dinner on the enclosed porch. Open the screened windows and take in a beautiful moonlit night with cool breezes and a glass of sweet tea.
There is fun for everyone. If you enjoy the zoo, water parks, shopping and dining, all are within a short driving distance. Pensacola, Florida; Perdido Key Florida, a National Seashore; Foley, Alabama; Orange Beach, Alabama; Gulf Shores, Alabama are accessible via the Foley Beach Express. All are within a 30 minute radius. Several Festivals are held year round -- Shrimp Festival, Strawberry Festival, Elberta Sausage Festival, Jubilee Festival, Baldwin County Fair, Pensacola Jazz Festival ...

Nice large house on the Bay close to beaches and great for family. At the end of the road so it is great for bike riding too.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your very nice review. We strive to keep the property fresh for all of our future guests. You were very nice guests and we wish to have you visit again. :)
Absolutely wonderful & peaceful get away that I shared w/my girlfriends. Our whole weekend was full of activities being there's so much to go do in the surrounding area. It was so nice to get back to this very clean and kept house after a long day out shopping and going to the beach. It was wonderful to relax on the back porch which faces the bay and feel the evening breeze over a crisp glass of wine. Can't wait to go back and take the boat to let the kids tube up and down the bay w/their family on the porch watching!!!! Will be so fun! I would definitely go back to stay again and recommend this vacation house to all.

About: Hi. I'm Deanna. My mother, Shirley, and sister, Gina, along with our families, love to travel in a casual and relaxed atmosphere with no deadlines to meet or phones to answer. Our bay home offers all you need to relax and unwind in privacy without crowds of tourists buzzing around. And if business brings you to the area, the location is perfect for easy access to Florida and Alabama. Shirley takes in the fresh salt air of beautiful Perdido Key, Florida, National Seashore, which is never crowded. Gina enjoys a drive to Fairhope, Alabama, to enjoy the quaint town full of artsy and upscale shopping as well as delicious dining. In the spring, Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival. Visit with Tom Jones in his pottery studio and watch him create beautiful pottery peices. Just a little further is beautiful, nostalgic Point Clear, Alabama, which was a Civil War battle site and archives were maintained. I, Deanna, enjoy Christmas festivities and year around shopping at the Tanger outlets. You could spend a rainy day/weekend there shopping. We all always enjoy as a family the National Aviation Museum to admire and reflect on the service of our honored military. The airplanes are amazing. There is also an IMAX at the site. This museum and IMAX are open daily. The museum is FREE of charge. We enjoy the drive to Joe Patty world famous seafood. You might get to take a picture with him. He is there each day. And cheese from the local Sweet Home Farm, Elberta, Alabama, and fresh produce from the local Elberta Farmer's market is very tasty with a glass of fine wine. I can't emphasize enough that there is always something fun to do a short distance away. My mother, sister and I invite you to visit our bay home in Lillian, Alabama, on the Perdido Bay, to enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer.
It is simply a serene setting to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery for nature enthusiasts. Bring your canoe or kayak. Our Northern friends can enjoy a hot cup of cocoa on our beautiful, warm sunny porch during the winter months. Lillian, Alabama is a quiet, low key, casual community. No fancy duds required. The Pensacola downtown area offers upscale dining if you are in the mood. There are numerous farmer's markets and cheese and honey makers. To meet your spiritual needs, there is a strong Catholic and Protestant influence. There are a number of churches to visit. Cleanliness: We do our best to ensure cleanliness on our premises for our guests to enjoy. Please respect this for other guests and leave dishes and kitchen/bath/bed linens clean and trash in bags in trash cans on the curb for garbage pick up.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private, quiet end of the road location. Beautiful panoramic scenic views of the bay. A perfect place to clear your head from the hustle and bustle and unwind. BEAUTIFUL new public BOAT LAUNCH facility three minutes away from the property. There is Green's Restuarant that serves breakfast and good, hot coffee, just one of the little mom and pop dining establishments in the area to enjoy. No fast food in Lillian!!! There is the Sweet Home Farm in Elberta, Alabama, our German community, which sells grass-fed dairy cheeses and gourmet items. Elberta is also the home of the Elberta German Sausage festival twice a year. Some other festivals are the famous Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival every October. Yum. Pensacola Jazz Festival. The Robertsdale, Alabama, Baldwin County Fair. In the Spring is the Loxley Strawberry Festival, local sweet strawberries are fat, juicy and scrumptious!
