  • Most relaxing stay ever

    "Sandy was a dream to work with and so very helpful on finding everything locally. Condo was very clean and comfortable. We slept as good if not better than at home. View from the balcony is priceless and we sat every day watching dolphins, fish jump, osprey flying over as well as the pelicans. The pictures are great but the view is even better in person. We enjoyed the pool and the staff was very helpful. All of Sandy's restaurant suggestions were great! We cannot wait to plan our next trip and would not consider staying anywhere else. This was our first vacation in five years and it was worth waiting for. Thanks Sandy!"

  • Will definitely visit again!

    "This condo was absolutely beautiful! Perfect for the 4 couples we had with us and some children. The views were amazing! The lazy river was our favorite!! The only thing I would suggest is adding some type of additional Air conditioning in the Master Bedroom. It stayed HOT the whole visit, even with the fan, and the curtains closed all the time. Maybe offer another fan, or add another AC vent. But other than that, it was great & we will be back!!"

  • Labor Day Retreat

    "Loved the Wharf! It was our first time to stay on the property and wont be our last. My daughter turned 16 and wanted to go to the Wharf with her friends for the weekend. The great thing about the Wharf is there is always something to do. The Oasis was a big hit as well as all the restaurants and shops literally next door. Kip Moore put on a free concert at Marlin's Circle (which we watched from the front balcony). Even though we spent little time in the condo except to sleep and shower, our stay was very comfortable. Plenty of room for 6 of us in this 2 bedroom condo. We didn't cook much but the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Overall, we had a good time and would definitely rent this property again."

  • Our Family of 5 Loved Staying Here!!

    "Our family loved staying at this condo. I was nervous about renting a condo for the first time. The owner was so nice and answered all of my (million) questions. The balcony is facing the river and we could have sat out there our entire trip. We loved watching the boats and a few times dolphins swam by. Our daughter (14) and son (5) loved going to the boat docks and catching crabs and small fish. They would have stayed there the whole time. You do have to take a fairly good walk to the beach across the street. But it is worth it. The condo was clean and well-maintained. The condo was so quiet. There were people all around us but we did not hear them. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. I have already told friends and family about this condo. I hope we can stay here again in the future."

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.

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.

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.
