Property 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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

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...
