Recent Alabama reviews

  • Enjoyed the easy beach access and spaciousness of this home

    "Our book club celebrated our 20th year of meeting together with a trip to the beach. The house suited our group of eight quite comfortably. There was more than enough space for us to gather together as well as to spread out and relax. We appreciated the uncluttered décor and comfortable furniture. The beach proximity was perfect. Don't underestimate the benefit of being directly on the beach -- it makes all the difference! We were able to sit for hours at the waters edge enjoying the weather and each other's company. When we needed something from the house we just popped in to get it and came right back out. You can't be that nimble if you're in a high-rise or even across the street from the beach. The property manager stopped by during our stay. While we didn't need anything, it was nice to know that there was someone nearby who could be contacted if anything needed attention at the property. All in all, this beach house was just the right place for our group to add more delightful memories to our 20+ year history!"

  • Dream spot

    "Beach Life was a dream come true. Brad had every convenience that you could possibly want. The house was comfortable, well-decorated, and walking distance to the beach. The balconies were relaxing in the evening with a great breeze and comfortable seating. Brad greeted us upon arrival with a bottle of wine and answered all the questions about the area. We love to cook and we were surprised with the supplies that were available for our use. Like another reviewer said don't take a lot of stuff. He has it all. Wish we had taken that to heart before we went grocery shopping on the way in! We plan to book again next year as soon as fall break is set on the calendar!"

  • Bass Fisherman

    "This is a great cabin! For four grown men it was a little cramped sleeping, but we knew that up front. We brought air matresses and had no issue. As a previous post stated, the bed was HARD. We were there to fish "Mark's Outdoors Bass Tournament". Each night we came in dog tired, so a hard bed was no problem. I saw on another review about no soap. This is a cabin, not a hotel room. You need to bring your own amenities. Great location in a quiet cove. It provided a lot more privacy than I expected. The owner came by the first day to make sure everything was ok. He's a great guy. Had a great time. I will reserve this cabin well in advance for next years tournament."

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.
