About Pete Perkins

I have been coming to Gulf Shores for 30 years and enjoy relaxing on the beautiful beaches, body surfing in the Gulf, biking thru the state park, and eating the fresh seafood. I will be retiring in a few years and plan to spend many months here. Can't wait!

Pete Perkins purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Pete Perkins chose Gulf Shores

The location is so ideal. I asked myself if I wanted to rent a cottage would this one appeal to me and the answer was a YES!

It's an easy walk to the beach and has a restaurant, seafood shop and convenient store right across the street.

The cottage is roomy with plenty of area to accommodate 10 guests not just sleep 10.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has 3 exterior decks and a very large area under the cottage with picnic table so guests can enjoy their stay both inside and out.

Great setup for any length of stay!

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for our family of four. The location is a short walk to the beach. A nice restaurant is across the street directly as well as a convenience store. Both made our stay more enjoyable as well as flexible. There is a fire station two doors down which made us feel safer at night. All of the amenities this place has to offer were satisfactory. We would definitely stay here again. We were never inconvenienced and the owners went above and beyond to make sure we had all that we needed. We accidentally left a few items and they were recovered and mailed to us in less then a week of us returning home.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location couldn’t be beat! It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was, too. We cooked at the house many nights and had everything we needed! We would definitely come back! Thanks for everything!

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a very short walk to a beach with lots of room to spread out. It was also right across the street to a waves convenience store, which was nice. I would recommend this property to everyone!

Not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

This home is very nice and in a great location! The only bad thing it was not as advertised. I said three bathrooms and it is not and the back deck you can’t even go on it! Nice home but just not what we needed!

Nice house, but not as advertised.

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay, but the house was not as advertised. It is NOT a 3 br/3 bath. It’s a 3 bedroom 2 bath. The “3rd” bath is actually an outdoor shower that isn’t even plumbed up! So, instead of 3 full baths, you get 2 with a non-working shower down stairs. The restaurant across the street isn’t bad at all. Will NOT stay there again.
