  • Outstanding Family Get-a-way

    "We had such a fabulous time staying at the "Porches" on Dauphin Island. It was the perfect venue for our family which includes 3 couples and 2 babies. There were a ton of toys, water paraphernalia, and everything that you can think of to make us feel comfortable. I especially liked all the towels and the fact that beach towels were provided. We were flying in so dragging all this "stuff" with us can be a pain, but the house included everything. It was such a pleasure to spend quality time with our children in this hectic world that we live in. There's only peace and quiet on this island and plenty of it, with an outstanding beach. I can't really say enough about the property as my husband and I have travelled extensively and have rented houses on several occasions but I was in awe at how it was outfitted, especially the kitchen--every tool that you can possibly use, and plenty of dishes and flatware. The porches themselves were awesome. We especially like the screened-in porch that allowed to have the babies out there without constantly fearful that they would fall between the railings. The owners were most accommodating, and very helpful in finding and returning to us something that we inadvertently left behind. I'm sure that we will be returning and I will not hesitate in recommending this property. Enjoy."

  • Perfect vacation!!!

    "We had read reviews of this property before we booked it, and I can say they were all so true!! This property is beautiful!! And the pictures really don't do it justice! It is huge! Beautifully decorated, beds were soooooo comfortable, it was just perfect! I can't say enough good things about this property! I would definitely recommend it. My family has vacationed in Destin and Panama City and we loved both, but Gulf Shores is a lot less commercialized, but you are still only a few minutes away from anything you want to go do. Beaches were not crowded at all...you can just pick a spot on the beach and stay there all day. Pool was nice and never crowded either. Just a wonderful, wonderful vacation for our family!!"

  • Always a blast at this beautiful, comfy, spacious condo!!! LOVE!!

    "Sharon is always so easy to work with while setting up our stay at her vibrant condo. It has such a "pottery barn" feel to it. I love all the beautiful art work but my favorite part is the very comfy bed and linens…I wish I had it at my house. I love being on the second floor and the views are amazing. The beach is not crowded at all since it is a four rise but everything from grocery stores and restaurants to shopping is just minutes away. I have stayed twice, once with my family and my parents and once with my family and another couple and their family. We always had plenty of room and the condo is very well maintained. We have two little boys so a big plus is the short distance to the beach and pool. We love this condo!!!"

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.
