Perdido Beach cottage description
The swing on the screened front porch is the place to enjoy the pelicans, dolphins, and beautiful Alabama sunsets. After one week experiencing this quiet haven, you will want to come back year after year. This peaceful spot offers calm waters for great water skiing yet lives up to its 'Breezy Point' name, providing light winds for your afternoon sail in Perdido Bay.
Secluded, yet just minutes away from Tanger Outlet Mall and all the sights and restaurants at Gulf Shores and Perdido Key, this is the perfect retreat location. Gentle waves lap over this sandy beach with no undertow to endanger your children; yet deep water is nearby for divers and more advanced swimmers, and for your boating needs. The lot includes a boat ramp.
Our vintage house is cozy and comfortable with with spacious rooms and inviting decor. Recently updated, it provides all the convenience you will need to enjoy a relaxing vacation...updated appliances, tile countertops, hardwood floors, a large pantry, and laundry area.You can fish and crab right off your private dock....your very own 'On Golden Pond'....just waiting for you!

Two girl friends and I just returned from a wonderful week at this rental. We kissed our non beachy husbands goodbye, strapped down our three kayaks and made our way over many miles to the calm, picturesque creeks right in front of this cabin. Long ago, I came "of age" along these shores and I wanted to remember again and to share this type of beachlife with my friends. The rental was neat and clean, the bedrooms were arranged so that we all had our privacy (the beds were very comfortable), and wonderful art adorned the walls. The screened porch with ceiling fan and breezes was hard to resist. Having the owners right next door was great...not because we had problems but because they were so kind, generous, and informative. We now talk of bringing our husbands because it's not the type of beach that they dislike, i.e., Gulf high rises with lazy rivers and pools, undertow, seaweed, jellyfish, relentless sun, crowds and traffic. This place is easy and relaxing and if you want to tear yourselves away and get into "the action", it's all available a short car ride away. I fear my review will spur you to rent here and I won't be able to procrastinate about booking my week next summer at Breezy Point!

I wanted to Thank you for letting my husband and son enjoy your secret hideaway in Alabama. During our breaks from baseball we enjoyed boating in the bay and watching the dolphins. My son Travis invited a friend over to ride on the tube in the bay and they had the best time ever. I was watching from the porch and could hear them laughing from the water. Nothing is better than a child’s laughter. We will be seeing you again . Pam Houston Texas

Excellent house and view! Extremely comfortable and very beautiful. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a quite spot to rest and relax. Not so close to the hot spots you can't a have peace and quite, but not so far that you can't get to where ever you want to go in a very reasonable time. Hope to be able to visit again soon.

About the owner: I am a mother of five, married 35 years. I love to travel, but of all the places I have been all over the world, the place I love the most is this quiet spot in Perdido Beach Alabama. I love remembering all the wonderful times that I have spent here with family and friends ...the waterskiing and the sailing with my dad, the nightly singing on the front porch and the feasts around my great grandmother's big mahoghany table, late night discussions of life's important questions on the dock, counting falling stars, skinny dipping and sunbathing with sisters and friends, building 'turtle houses' on the beach as a kid and sandcastles with my own children, repeatedly counting cousins in the water, watching lightning storms across the bay, afternoon naps on my mother's porch swing, 'junking' at nearby shops with my sisters, walking to the old post office to retrieve the mail from box 19, and penny candy from the general store, boat parades on July 4.....54 years of kicking up the same sand down the same driveway, enjoying stunning Alabama sunsets and beautiful azaleas and hydrangeas planted by my grandmother, chasing visiting dolphins in the boat, enjoying a book on the deck...countless memorable hours at Perdido Beach with my children, my family, and my friends have made my life exceedingly rich. Blessed as I am, I couldn't figure out how to make my picture with my 84 year old Dad vertical....(thank you to the VRBO team who fixed that!)....he's a treasure, and you might be lucky enough to meet him, if you rent this wonderful property....
Why the Owner Chose Perdido Beach:
My father vacationed with his parents in the area when he was a boy. His parents bought land and build a home adjacent to this land before I was born. I was raised spending my summers here. My sisters and I inherited this vacation home from my mother after she died.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The location is ideal because although it is secluded, it is also convenient to shopping, restaurants, movies, and really anything that might be needed. Both Pensacola and Mobile are within reach. The Gulf of Mexico is just 25 minutes by car and 10 minutes by boat. The brackish water offers the benefits of a lake, warm but not too hot...salty, but not too salty. The sandy bottom is comfortable; water shoes are not even necessary. You are near civilization but it is quiet and peaceful. There's some boating activity, especially on weekends, but not too much...Just the right blend for a perfect retreat...
