"A welcome spot to spread out after sharing a hotel room with my 2 college aged daughters. We were able to each have our own space and relax for a couple of days. It's an easy walk to the pier, coastal trail and shops downtown. We arrived on a Sunday night and the town was a little quiet with many restaurants closed so having a kitchen and dining area was a real plus. Also it's a short drive to Gulf Shores so we checked those beaches out too. We would return if our travels bring us to the area in the future."

"We stayed this February at this adorable cottage and loved its' charm and convenience in the city . It's everything it says it is and a welcome surprise from the internet for us. The owners and rental agent were warm and friendly and extremely responsive to email questions and concerns. We will be back next year, but for two months next time."

"We LOVED staying at Surprise Landing. We were in Fairhope for a granddaughters wedding and the cottage was convenient to all of the pre-wedding events and the wedding itself on the Bluff above the pier. Frank & Deborah were such gracious hosts. From the arrangements beforehand, to meeting us at our arrival and showing us around, to leaving delicious homemade cheese straws and wine... all the way up to returning our deposit check before I even had a chance to write this review. Every aspect of our visit was perfect - except one. We didn't stay long enough to be able to relax on the beautiful pier and really take advantage of all that was offered. So that means that we MUST return and enjoy Surprise Landing another time when we can control our own schedules. Thank you Deborah & Frank for a great visit."

"We had a great time staying at the house. The kitchen and living room are very open and the bedrooms upstairs have multiple beds for comfortable sleeping accommodations. We enjoyed spending time under the house and out on the pier. The small beach made it easy to enter and exit the bay, especially for small kids. We would love to stay here again."
