  • Spring Break 2015

    "My husband and I stayed at Hawk's Nest for a week and loved it! We are from Northern Indiana and brought our motorcycle down with us to ride the beautiful countryside. The house was comfortable and very well kept. It was very peaceful to just sit by the creek and listen to the sounds of nature all around. My husband tried his hand at fishing the pond, but had not luck. It was a great week! Michelle (the owner) was very helpful with the booking and answering any questions I had before we booked it. She even text me the day we got home to make sure we made it safety."

  • Great Spring Break family vacation!!

    "We booked this condo for a family Spring Break vacation! We had a great time! The weather was beautiful and the view was breathtaking! Not only was our condo perfect for our family of five but it was very relaxing and we had everything we needed right there... The condo is located within walking distance to all the souvenior shops and food-The Hangout (is a must go). Also, I cannot say enough about how great the owner Deborah is!!! She was so friendly and made me feel very comfortable about renting from her. Anytime I had a question regarding our stay she was very prompt about getting back to me. Our children had a blast and we made great family memories!! Hoping to continue to make this a yearly trip for years to come! Definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a getaway!"

  • Home away from Home Condo

    "I had stayed with a family member before this stay and loved it so much, I wanted to share it with others. This condo truly felt like home. It was clean, safe, well equipped, and more importantly comfortable. We even arrived during a week of really bad weather and yet still had a wonderful time. The view was beautiful. You could't ask for easier accessibility to the beach and all it has to offer. Mrs. Conroy was easy and accommodating with regard to anything during, before, and after our stay. The condo was extremely organized and you had no questions of what and where things should go and how it should be used so others before or after you would have a perfect stay as well. Love Love Love it."

  • Wonderful Condo, Great Location, Beautiful View!

    "We booked this condo on a last minute vacation decision and would could not have been happier when we walk in the door. It is exactly as described and more. We loved the convienence of the key lock box vs stopping to get a key from the management office. And the added touch of two rental beach chairs and umbrella included as well. Everything in the condo is well maintained. Thanks to Dana and Christie for taking care of us."

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.
