About CODY MYERS

I am a real estate agent in New Orleans and visit as often as I can with my girlfriend and pet...very relaxing and an easy get away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans and real estate.

CODY MYERS purchased this house in 2008

Why CODY MYERS chose Alabama

close (walking distance) to everything like restaurants, shops, bars, grocery stores, and, most important, the beach is across the street !!! It is only 3 hours from our home in New Orleans which is just too convenient.

What makes this house unique

relaxing on the wrap-a-round balcony with a cup of coffee or glass of wine or bar-b-que below catching the sunset with the nice consistent breeze from the gulf.

Beautiful house with a Great location...

  • 5 of 5

This was my first vacation rental through HomeAway.The owner was very helpful with everything.I looked at a lot of other houses most had more bedrooms and other things but since it was just my wife and I with our yorkies.We didn't need a big house,so this one was just right.It is so close to the beach,we walked to it just about everyday while we stayed there.It is close to a lot of the local restaurants and nightlife.It was nice to relax on the wrap around deck after a long day.i loved the fact that we could park under the house and could go up the steps to the deck and into the house.It kept our car cool and if it was to rain we wouldn't have gotten wet.The house was well kept and beautiful.We enjoyed the deck,the dog run was a nice touch and even the picnic table and swing under the house.The owner was prompt at answering my many questions.I would definitely recommend this house and owner to anyone that doesn't need a big place but just wants a great location at a great price.

Our trip was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay here. The house was very clean and efficient. I felt like I was visiting a family members' house as the environment was very cozy and warm. With everything you would need in a beach home including outdoor showers to wash the sand away before coming into the house. And the location is outstanding! Just a few steps and sand is at your toes! Lots or eateries and shopping nearby as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back and refer our friends. My only wish is that we had a little doggie to bring because the house is perfect for that too!

Very comfortable, convenient and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Cody's property was perfect for our small family reunion. Very comfortable and clean and extremely convenient to downtown Gulf Shores and the beach is only steps away. Highly recommend this property.

Our 50th wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. My husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. It was within walking distance of many different eating venues and also souvenir shops.The only drawback involved our dog. We had wanted to take him for long walks on the beach, but unfortunately animals were't allowed on the beach. We ended up taking him to a dog park, but that was not on the beach. For this reason, I would suggest leaving your dog at home. Other than that, everything was great. The house was very nice and well equipped.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not going to lie, when I first looked at the pictures of this house I was not impressed. But the price was right, it had the right amount of bedrooms and bathrooms I was looking for, and that wrap-a-round porch! (I'm a sucker for a wrap-a-round). Contacting Cody was a quick and easy process. He was friendly and Quick to respond.

Needless to say the pictures did not do this place justice. The bedrooms were spacious and that King bed was so comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with every pot, pan and utensil necessary for cooking. And the wrap-a-round porch! I seriously considered this one of the best features of the house. Was able to easily view both the sunrise and sunset from the porch and the outside patio set was comfortable. Ate dinner out there almost every night. It was a nice place to relax and sip on wine before heading to the beach for a nightly walk. Now would be a good time to mention that the beach is so close you only have to cross two streets to get there. Plenty of restaurants are in the surrounding neighborhood. Easy to walk to, saved a lot on gas cause we never had to drive anywhere!

If you're considering staying in a house in Gulf Shores I highly suggest this one. It's conveniently located and it's affordable.
