  • Beautiful Place

    "My husband and I spent five wonderful days at Ritz on the Rocks. The place was spotless and furnishing unique and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable but nothing inside the cottage could even compare to the view! The whole side of the bedroom is glass and the most enjoyable thing was falling asleep while looking out at the lights in the valley and watching fire flies (known as lightning bugs in South Georgia!). Morning coffee outside was so enjoyable....I just could go on and on. We had the pleasure of meeting Tony during our visit. We found him to be very personable, funny, cute and did everything to make our stay pleasant.....bless his heart. We would highly recommend this place and hope to go again soon."

  • Loved It!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I've stayed here several times, and plan to stay again. I love that I can walk to the beach, or I can walk to the lagoon, I can walk just about anywhere! Even to Ike's Beach Rental, where I can rent a kayak and cruise around the lagoon. Or I can walk over to Bahama Bob's and have the best fish sandwich ever! Great for pets, plenty of green space, and no carpet is a definite plus when it comes to muddy/sandy paws. I'll be back next year."

  • This was a very nice, comfortable and clean condo

    "We have vacationed in Gulf Shore/Orange Beach 8 times. This condo was definitely one of our top 3, if not the best. The condo was very clean; extremely comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Our previous rental 2 years ago was a fiasco - we told the rental agency we would never use them again. A huge part of the success of a vacation centers around your accomdations, needless to say we consider this vacation a huge success! Condo owner-thank you for taking pride in your investment!"

  • Beautiful views & excellent facilities!

    "This unit is perfectly located in this complex, high enough to see the Gulf from the balcony & right next to the elevators. It is well maintained, stocked with all the essentials (dishes, cooking utensils, dish soap, etc) & has a great wi-fi connection. We enjoyed most of our time out on the patio with the gorgeous view. The condo is a good size that would very spaciously accommodate 4 people & would still be comfortable for 6. The condo complex is great: three nice clean pool areas, friendly security staff & a decent, clean gym facility complete with sauna. There is a convenience/grocery store about 1/3 mile away & a pizza place across the parking lot. Other than that within a mile there are several restaurants, bars & stores. Great location for walking down to the annual Shrimp Festival too!"

Alabama Travel Tips

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.

Things to Do in Alabama

U.S. Space & Rocket Center: When visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, a museum showcasing achievements, rockets and artifacts from the United States’ space program. The museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. 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.

Birmingham Zoo and Montgomery Zoo: Animal lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to either zoo in Birmingham or Montgomery, or maybe even both! The Birmingham Zoo is home to about 800 different animals of more than 200 species. It’s also a force in elephant conservation, featuring a Trails of Africa exhibit. Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures. The Montgomery Zoo allows visitors to take a trip to South America, Asia and other countries without ever leaving Alabama. With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. 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. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.

Shopping and Dining in Alabama

Bel Air Mall: Located in Mobile, Bel Air Mall is a major attraction for excited shoppers. Featuring more than 130 stores, there no doubt you can find exactly what you’re looking for while visiting Alabama at local shops or bigger name stores. In addition, Bel Air Mall is home to a quaint Venetian carousel and many restaurants when you need to take a break and refuel.

Wintzell’s Oyster House: For a true Southern seafood meal, visit Mobile’s historic landmark, Wintzell’s Oyster House. It’s been open for more than 75 years and has grown and expanded from a six-stool oyster bar to the landmark it is now.

Mike and Ed’s BBQ: For some Southern-style barbecue, visit Auburn’s Mike and Ed’s BBQ which dishes up some of the tastiest pulled pork and home cooking in the state. There's no excuse for leaving hungry here - the portions are big and chances are you will clean your plate.
