Recent Alabama reviews

  • A beautiful, relaxing place to stay!

    "We enjoyed our stay at Sand Dollar very much. The house is huge, and everything we needed was there. We loved being on the lagoon; listening and watching the wildlife in the evenings was amazing. We caught blue point crabs off the dock, yum! We had a couple of minor issues, but I spoke to the owner about them and she was very helpful in resolving them. I apologize for the negative comments my friend posted. She was only there a couple of days and was having some personal issues that had nothing to do with the house, but for some reason she felt she needed to lash out. I would highly recommend Sand Dollar, it is a beautiful home in a quiet location. It was easy to walk to the beach and the lagoon was great. Thank you, Gail, for renting to us and making special exceptions to accommodate my group. We hope to visit again!"

  • Relaxing get away

    "I couldn't of ask for a better vacation rental, this townhouse was home away from home. Very clean and equipped with everything a person would need. It is off the beaten path of all the traffic and tourists, yet close enough to enjoy the shops and restaurants. Just a short walk to the beach to watch the dolphins play and a beautiful view from the deck! I will be back!!"

  • Beautiful Condo on the beach

    "The owner, Rick, is excellent to work with. This is our second time renting from him - we have now stayed in both of his units. Condos are clean. Furnishings are not cheap by no means. Would highly recommend renting from him."

  • AL & CO Friends Collide Seaside

    "PP 1403 is our new favorite hangout! Best A/C. Best Location. Best Deck with Best View. Seagulls and Pelicans fly by as you spot the fish and dolphins each day. Best Condo for the Price in OBA! Clean, well equipped, and close to everything. Pool was always well attended to, and grounds were clean and location staff always present and friendly. Beach is steps away, clean and not as crowded as the folks to the West. Best morning walks! Playing in the sea! Rented pontoon for a full day and explored the entire inter coastal waterways with a few hangout stops along the way. Two couples each with two teens, perfect for all of us. Its all about the lifestyle, right? - and this condo was the perfect pairing. Mission accomplished. We will be back!"

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.

Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

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.

With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

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.

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.

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.
