Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

You are 200 yards from sticking your feet into the Gulf of Mexico. If surf fishing is your game this is the right place. One can normally wade in the Gulf and collect a nice meal of Blue Claw Crabs.

We are located at the mouth of MOBILE BAY and to the west of GULF SHORES. Enjoy the exquisite unexploited white sand beaches fringed with emerald green waters, historic sites, a laidback lifestyle, and myriad activities. When Admiral Farragat said 'damn the torpedos full speed ahead' this is the place he was talking about.

Boating, canoeing, and fishing at LITTLE LAGOON and GATOR LAKE, playing Golf at the scenic and challenging golf courses of GULF SHORES and hiking at PINE BEACH TRAIL are just a few of the activities that are available. FORT MORGAN STATE PARK is within walking distance and offers self-guided tours of the Fort and its grounds. The Fort also has a pier for fishing or crabbing. There is a ferry service that runs between FORT MORGAN and DAUPHIN ISLAND. The historic FORT GAINES is located on DAUPHIN ISLAND.

While the summer time is paradise for sun bathers and water lovers, the fall is a special time on the beach. The weather is cool and mild. You can turn the air conditioner 'off', open the windows, enjoy the gulf breeze and sleep to the sound of the Gulf waters lashing on shore. The fishing is great in September and October.

Best home away from home you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Me and a girlfriend stayed here for a week during our school's spring break. We were searching for someplace low key and relaxing... this was definitely the place we were searching for. Not only was the owner incredible nice, she also made sure that if we had any problems, her brother in law, Aubrey, was only a few houses away to fix any problems that we had, which we didn't. The house is maybe 50 yards from sand and then another 50 yards until your are ankle deep in the ocean. It was a lot closer than we expected. The house was well kept with every pot and pan you can think of, every toiletry, extra pillows, blankets and towels and even a basement full of things to play on the beach with. They house was decorated very home like and I never for one second, felt uncomfortable or scared at night time. The neighbors are mostly elderly, but are very sweet and I don't think there was a single person who didn't wave or smile as they walked along the beach. The beach was very quiet, we went during spring break and there were very few actual spring breakers around. At times, it felt as if we had our own private beach. I would absolutely recommend this house for anyone who wants a low key vacation. The closest town is about a 20 minute drive, but it's so pretty you barely even realize you have been driving that long. So once again, we loved it and i would definitely love to come back and stay here again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is cute and very clean. The proximity to the beach is great and it was never crowded. Having a washer and dryer was awesome and it was nice to be able to borrow an extra umbrella and pvc pipes for fishing from the basement. The sofa bed is pretty rough, but we put the mattress on the floor and it was much better. The other beds are good. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. There is a grill but it is charcoal. The only thing missing was a hairdryer - bring your own. :) We would definitely recommend this house and would stay here again.

Great hosts and house!

  • 5 of 5

Overall great experience. The hosts were responsive and the house was as described. Nice location with just a short walk to the beach. The house was nice and clean and everything worked liked it should. There is a place on the deck where you can look South and see the Gulf of Mexica, and look North and see Mobile Bay! Had a nice driveway for grilling and well stocked kitchen for meals. We were a family of 4 and the accommodations were great.

Fantastic location, very clean, great amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful spring break in popa's place!! The house was exceptionally clean and had every amenity you could possibly need. The house decor was fresh and new and made the house feel very homey. Two houses from the beach was closer than we imagined!! My only suggestion would be to fix the satellite as there were only local channels working, the other channels kept giving us an error of "lost signal". Definitely not a big deal, we will certainly be back next year.
