comfortable, quite and a host that wants to please.
Kathleen and husband were a delightful couple. They were very respectful and appreciative of my property. They are welcome back anytime.
A Wonderful Experience!
We had the pleasure of staying in Guest House for a month and hated to leave. We found the place immaculate. It had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Our hostess, Tessie, is extremely knowledgeable and guided us to many Fairhope gems. The quite country location is minutes to great dining and Mobile Bay. It is also very convenient to downtown Mobile
and Gulf Shore beaches. If we could rate Guest House 10 stars we would. We can’t wait to go back.
Andrea & Rita are wonderful people; they were a pleasure to host, and they are welcome back anytime. I just wish we had had more time to spend together; I did not show them all the places in the area that I would have liked to. They have become good friends. I am sure they will come back soon though.
Very enjoyable stay at the Guest House
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Guest House. The setting is quite unique, very peaceful and relaxing. Tessie is a wonderful host: we enjoyed meeting and getting to know her.
Enjoyed having Linda and her husband. They were very respectful of my property, and are welcome back anytime.
My wife and I stayed at the guest house and it was amazing. The house was so clean my wife thought we were the first couple to stay there. The pictures do not do this place justice, there’s no way to capture the beauty on a camera. It’s far enough away from the noise and traffic of the beach crowd with only about a 30 min drive. It’s so beautiful and serene there. Tessie is an awesome host and made sure our stay was great. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you again for allowing us to stay there!
Tom and his wife were an awesome couple. They were so appreciative of my property, and respected it by keeping it clean. I enjoyed my conversations with them; they were friendly, and interesting. I would recommend them to anyone, as guests. They are certainly welcome back anytime. I thank them for their stay, and look forward to the next one.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Tessie’s Villa!!
My husband and I were planning a trip to the beach, but I wasn’t feeling Florida. We choose Fairhope, AL since it was not too far from our home and it was near the beach. Tessie’s villa was the perfect balance between vacation and home! Tess was an awesome hostess and our chats were always enjoyable. I got to meet two of her friends who were friendly as well. The gardens and patio areas were beautiful and inviting! We’re sharing our new place (to visit again) with our family and friends! You must visit the Shrimp Basket in Foley, the Fish River Grill in Fairhope, and Boudreaux in Daphne for some really great excellent seafood and Southern hospitality!
Thanks again Tess for all a lovely stay!!
Randall and Kandal Owens,
You are so welcome. I enjoyed hosting you, and thanks for leaving everything so well maintained and clean. You are welcome back anytime.
Couldn't have asked for better!
Tessie is a delightful and very helpful host. Her place is actually a small, one bedroom house that is immaculately maintained, is in a very quiet farm setting, and had comfortable bed. The kitchen has all the necessary utensils, microwave, etc., that you could want. It's a short drive into Fairhope and somewhat longer to the beaches, but not bad. We had some wonderfully interesting conversations with Tessie and getting to learn a little about the local history. We would definitely stay there again.
Steven and his wife were a pleasure to host. They had the utmost respect for my property, were a delight to visit with, and are welcome back anytime.
