We are 10 minutes away from the world famous Grand Hotel and 15min..from downtown Fairhope. The Tanger Outlet Mall is 20 minutes away and Gulf Shores is 35 minutes away. Some of the best seafood and shopping is so close,but Shangri-Log is so quiet and peaceful. Walking/running/bike riding for those who enjoy a little exercise. Our roadway is used for several bike races throughout the year so it is perfect for these activities. Our front porch has rocking chairs to watch the sunrise. We have kids swings under the house.We enjoy sitting on the beach porch and watching all the birds(blue heron,brown pelican,owls,sea gulls,osprey,etc.)Great fishing and crabbing or bring your small boat or jet skis and dock at the end of the pier.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Dawn and I always dreamed of having a place on the bay. We bought this place and thought, what can we name it. Shangri-La(Shangri-Log) is a mystical place that words can't describe. The views of 3 different bays and breezes from the bay and gulf are unbelievable. Our white sandy beach and location at the point of the bays make this place special. The location is so close to quaint downtown Fairhope with shops and restaurants and Gulf Shores with all the tourist things to do.

Why the Owner Chose Fairhope, AL, USA:
This location is at the point of 3 bays. Our home is the last home and we can watch the boats coming in and out of Big Mouth. Big Mouth is the name locals call the location where 2 of the bays meet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you walk into Shangri-Log you will notice all the quality workmanship of this beautiful log home(cabinet maker built this home). The chefs kitchen with GE Monogram appliance, gorgeous Brazilian cherry,travertine and Italian marble floors,the latest TV surround sound system. The Master suite and bath has a double whirlpool tub and 2+ person shower with multiple shower heads. We have a 9' regulation pool table.
