"Kates Place was a piece of heaven away from home. It surpassed our expectations and we will being staying there again. The bay access was a big plus since the ocean was full of jellyfish while we were there. The owners are very nice people and accommodating."

The property was exactly as advertised. We could not have asked for anything more suitable for us.
"My wife and I wanted a quiet place where friends and family could come by and visit with us while we all enjoyed natural surroundings. The back deck is indeed about 20 feet from the water's edge and provides a wonderful viewing platform for looking at the birds that regularly flock to the pilings nearby in the water. The property sits much closer than those on either side, so when we were on the deck it seemed like we were the only people in the area. We enjoyed mornings with coffee on the deck watching the gulls, terns, and pelicans compete for perches on the pilings and enjoyed watching several beautiful sunsets at day's end before going to one of the many great seafood restaurants around Baldwin County.
The property is well kept, clean and has just about anything you could need for comfort. The owners really care about renters being satisfied. They checked with us upon arrival to make sure we had gotten there okay and the place was in good order.
Everything a prospective renter might need to know about the place is described on the web site and is presented accurately. About the only thing missing were the dolphins, but to make up for that were what looked like hundreds of monarch butterflies on the bottlebrush blossoms near the cottage.
Our only complaint is not with the property or its owners but with VRBO. The requirement that we pay $59 for insurance against property damage or make a refundable deposit of $1500 is a ripoff."

"We have rented this lovely home for three years now and have already renewed for next year. The house has a great layout with the master suite on one side of the living/dining room and the guest wing on the other. The kitchen and laundry appliances are all up to date. The large garage makes a protected entry on rainy days, and the enclosed patio is a lovely spot on sunny ones. The furnishings give the feel of someone's home, not a hotel, and add to the warmth and comfort. The neighborhood is quiet and level, ideal for walking, and close to a large variety of grocery, drug and discount stores. Fairhope has a public beach and park on Mobile Bay two miles away, and many activities throughout the year."
