  • What a wonderful experience

    "This was our first experience VRBO and all I can say is I hope they are all as wonderful. Thanks to Pam and our experience we will be using VRBO again and hopefully one of her places. The Lighthouse was a great place, good location and wonderful pools and beach. The unit was just as described and perfect for our daughters first visit to the beach. We had a wonderful time and could not have asked for more. Pam was so great to work with, easy to get in touch with and very quick to respond. Thanks for everything. Hope it works out for us to return next year if not sooner."

  • 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."

  • Very comfortable

    "We stayed in the condo during the last week of June and enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and well maintained. We liked that it was right on the beach and that it was no terribly crowded. We would stay here again."

  • Incredible

    "We have debated long and hard how to accurately depict our feelings of this property. We arent sure that is possible, but here goes. My wife loves the beach and my son and I love the ocean. As a compromise, we rented a house on the canal. The beach was a short ride and the canal allowed for the boys to catch bait fish for our offshore trips. The house was incredible with more than enough room for our family. The view is great off the screen porch and to say it is quiet is an understatement. There is not one negative thing I could say, other than I don't own it. (Yet). It is a short drive to the beach, shopping, marinas, etc. I highly recommend getting a toll pass for $35 for 7 days. It makes everything so much easier. All that said....If you are looking for something different than the typical insanity of staying on the beach...elevators...noise, this is where I would recommend. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.( We have already booked 3 more trips and are negotiating more if that tells you how much we liked it.)"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
