  • Christmas 2014 Get-A-Way

    "Christmas at the beach was awesome mostly because of this exceptional condo. We enjoyed walks on the beach and wonderful seafood at local restaurants. It was very relaxing and nice to be there when there are no crowds. The condo was so much nicer than we have ever experienced. The unit was spotless when we arrived and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and more. The owner was a pleasure to work with and kept me updated as needed. That was a real plus for me. We will definitely be reserving this unit in the future. The experience was wonderful. A great big "thank you" to the owner."

  • Great Condo!

    "We took our family of 5 down for a quick spring break trip to Gulf Shores. Terri was great to work with and made the whole process easy. The condo is great everything is close to everything. We will certainly plan to stay here again on our next trip. Thank you Terri for your part of a great visit!"

  • Happy New Years Getaway

    "My husband and I wanted a quiet New Years get away and we found the perfect spot! All the cabins were booked, but Sandy graciously allowed us to rent The Lodge at a 2 person rate. It was a perfect holiday (except my team lost 😢). We enjoyed exploring Little River Canyon, a short drive away, hiking the Bear Creek Log Cabin property, and just relaxing! Although all cabins were in use, we had plenty of privacy. Cabins were clean, tidy, and decorated authenticly. We Loved the hot tub! We grilled or cooked all our meals. Randy and Sandy were very hospitable! It's clear they love sharing their property! We look forward to returning and staying in a smaller cabin."

  • Great location

    "My husband and I stayed at "The Island Sun" for the month of March. The location was great since we could cross the road and arrive at the beach in ten minutes, yet the condo is on a quiet street with little traffic. The two bedrooms and living area are spacious. My husband enjoyed the DVR and flat screen TV. I appreciated the fact that we could bring our Cockapoo along."

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.
