Recent Alabama reviews

  • Girls trip and buisness meetings too.....

    "I liked that I was able to stay less than 7 days and not be penalized. The owners were easy to work with and made the rental process easy though paypal. I have stayed at Sugar Beach before but this is by far the nicest and cleanest condo I've stayed in and at a very good rental price. The owners even gave us a $10 credit because the cable company had an outage for a few hours on one of the days we were there. Plenty of room for myself, my mom and daughter and her friend. The only thing that I noticed was it was a little warm upstairs in the loft/bedroom, but we had brought two fans anyway because we like the fan noise and it made it comfortable, but overall wonderful condo, nice owners and a great stay!"

    "Unit was great and very clean. Kitchen had everything we needed. Awesome views from the balcony. We enjoyed watching the dolphins each morning! Keyless entry was great and nice not to have to keep up with keys. Perfect stay!"

  • Affordable & Spacious Lake Cabin for a Weekend Getaway

    "My family of four had a relaxing stay at Compton's Cocktail Cove last weekend. The owner, Jay, was very accommodating with all of my spontaneous requests. The cabin was clean and cozy with a homespun feel, with the exception of the bathrooms which were both recently updated and fresh. The beds we used were comfortable, and provided higher quality linens than expected given the modest rental price. The only drawback was the low water level this time of year. Certainly no fault of the owner, but something to consider if you're planning to fish or bring a boat before April. We'll certainly return this summer as our stay wasn't nearly long enough. I would like to get back to reading on the hammock asap!"

  • Love this place!

    "The prior reviews say it all - this is a very nice cottage, the kitchen has plenty of plates, cookware, utensils, etc. Lot of room, very nice furnishings, and having a washer and dryer was super - we just through our towels, etc., in the washer every night and had them clean and ready for another day at the beach. The neighbors we met were very friendly, and the neighborhood is very quiet. I was a little concerned about noise from the pool, but when we were here, mid-May, it was seldom an issue. It was great to be able to relax on the porch and keep and eye on the kids in the pool. The beach is super close, though there are not toilets or services, so be aware of that. However, it was super easy to drive back to the cottage if needed. The little store down the road has a good variety of things and they don't gouge on prices - I bought some beautiful tomatoes for breakfast this morning, and 2 jugs of water and it was just over $5. Also they have fun blow-up pool toys that they will inflate for you. Come with your groceries and supplies and prepare to relax and enjoy!!!"

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

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 U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures.

Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. 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.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others.
