  • Martin Family Labor Day Get-Away

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We are a large family and we have a brother who also has a large family. We wanted a family get-away experience at the beach where we could be together yet spread out and feel safe. We have been getting togehter on Labor Day Weekend in this neighborhood for eight years. While the house is not directly on the water, the beach is an easy two block walk, plus we had use of the community pool & hot tub which were clean & well maintained. The houses are located in a small neighborhood which helped our sense of security. The kitchen has two refrigerators and an ice maker. The living room furnishings and kitchen supplies (pots/pans/dishes/small appliances & cooking utensils)in this house are all old and need to be replaced. But we made do with what was there plus brought some of our own kitchen things. There is a small outdoor grill but it needs major cleaning every time we go. The location is perfect for families who want to get away from the crowded beaches, restaurants and attractions. The staff at Sunset Properties, including the office personnel and the maintenance people were wonderful and responded promptly to our calls. All in all, we had a wonderful time and have already booked for next year."

  • Great Place To Stay!

    "The condo was just as described and even better than the photos. Everything you might need for a comfortable stay. Shopping is near by for the essentials or Tanger Outlets a few miles down the road for fun. The guys had a great time fishing on the pier, also just a few minutes by car. We saw dolphins from the balcony several times. The complex was quiet even during the first part of our stay when there was more of a crowd. The owner was easy to work with and easy to contact. I would highly recommend this property!"

  • Great location and immaculate unit in a smaller building!

    "We absolutely loved this unit at Harbour Place! It's been well cared for and recently remodeled. The unit was immaculate, beds were comfortable and the furniture looked new! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Our favorite part was how "uncrowded" the beach was! Since the building is only 5 stories, and there aren't many units on each floor, the beach wasn't overcrowded with Harbour Place guests. The Wi-Fi wasn't very reliable, and we were given a number to call if we had problems with it, but we didn't want to take time for that, so we used our data plan when it wasn't working. We would definitely return, but not for a few months. Some beautiful new homes are being built next door, so we listened to construction equipment anytime we were on the balcony. I imagine the balcony would've been my favorite spot without that noise. I can't say enough about how helpful and prompt the owner was to respond to my questions prior to our arrival! Thanks for that!"

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.
