Recent Alabama reviews

  • First family vacation with grandchildren

    "This place was more than enough room for all of us. Two full living rooms, large kitchen. The Grand-Dad made an EPIC breakfast every morning. The beds (king size) were the most comfortable that we ever stayed, and my son-in-law who has been all over the world (military) even bragged about the beds. Everyone had their own bathroom as well. The pool was nice and felt private, not to mention the pool showers provided both hot and cold water. Nice fully screened-in porches on both floors, so if you like to sit out at night, you don't have to worry about the bugs. The ceilings are high and the air conditioner is great, so it never felt stuffy in the home. The spiral staircase was good for the great grandmother, she mentioned how easy it was to climb. The spiral staircase leads to a separate suite with it's own A/C unit. Every room also had it's own balcony, which we all loved. Plenty of seating room for meals, two tables and a bar at the kitchen. The safety of the neighborhood was a plus. Tannin also affords private parking at the beach, if you decide to drive instead of walking. I've always rented beach front at Orange Beach for the past 27 years, but I didn't miss that with this house. Speaking of which, this was the cleanest house that I have ever stayed in. Would definitely recommend and plan on making this our annual vacation destination."

  • Relaxing Week on the Beach

    "We just got back from a week in this beautiful home. Everything was perfect! It felt like home away from home. The kitchen had all the tools and utensils you could think of. We had plenty of space for eating and relaxing. The beds were so cozy and the kids had plenty of room to sleep in the 2nd bedroom. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony in the morning over looking the ocean. It was so serene. It's a very short walk to the beach, right across the street, and just a few minutes drive to a lot of great restaurants and shopping. Paula couldn't have been more accommodating and very responsive to all of our questions. Thanks Paula for a wonderful, relaxing week!"

  • A perfect family lake house!

    "Don't expect the usual vacation rental house at King's Cove. Expect to feel like a guest. It is as if we were in my sister's home. No corners are cut for the renters. There are plenty of towels, comfortable bed linens, and bathroom tissue! :) Things like hand soap and paper products were the type I use at my house not the cheap things one usually sees in the typical beach or lake rental. The kitchen was well equipped, once again, with quality items, and the decor is an eclectic mixture of well loved treasures and comfortable furnishings. There is ample seating in the living area and both eating areas so that all the group can be together in the same space. The mix of beds worked out well for our multi-generational group and though we did not use the loft space, it is huge and perfect for older children to sleep and play. Outside, the porches are one of the best features of the property and have plenty of chairs and ceiling fans. We loved the furnished stone patio near the water and the sunshade on the dock. It is also nice to find a home with space to park several cars and a grassy lawn that is level enough to set-up yard games and big enough for the littles to run and play without fear of them falling into the lake. King's Cove is large enough for our extended family but cozy enough that I could (and might!) come back alone and not feel lost. There is not one thing about this lovely home that was not absolutely delightful!"

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

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

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.
