About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This unique creek house provides the perfect peaceful vacation get away. It is located on the widest portion of Soldier Creek with boat slips available on the spacious pier and a boat launch on the property. Quiet and serene, but still within 35 minutes of the excitement of Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, the Tanger Outlet Shopping Center and many fine waterfront restaurants. The house provides two bedrooms and two baths in the main house with an additional two bedrooms and bath in the apartment above the double garage. Two families could share this home comfortably.

If you have a boat and are looking for a vacation home at which your family can enjoy the water, this is the place for you.

The property contains a sandy beach providing a swimming area and a boat house with a slip (four to five foot depth) for your boat. A boat ramp is on the property and another is nearby. There is freshwater fishing and kayaking in the upper reaches of Soldier Creek and nearby Palmetto Creek and salt water fishing off the pier and at nearby Perdido Bay fishing reefs (2) and in the Gulf of Mexico. The creek flows into Perdido Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway (15 min boat ride away) with water access to the Gulf of Mexico. The group looking to enjoy nature and the outdoors of our beautiful Gulf Coast will certainly appreciate this ideal vacation location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time here at "Creek Watch". The location is perfect for us to visit with family and friends on Perdido Bay and Palmetto Creek. Having a boat launch and pier right outside our door was wonderful! We cooked some great meals and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Being able to bring our grand-dog made it extra special. Many, many thanks for making your cottage available to us!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Best location on the Gulf Coast. The property has the feel of a private lake in the mountains, but is a 20 minute boat ride to the heart of Orange Beach. The creek is protected from the rough waters of Perdido Bay so you can wakeboard and ski all day long on glassy water. There was very little boat traffic in the creek, we had the creek to ourselves most of the time. The cottage and suite above the garage was just the right amount of space for my family of 6 and our friend's family of 3. The boat launch on site was super convenient. We launched a fairly deep water boat with no problems. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We are already planning to go back next summer.

This was our 2nd year staying here and had such a relaxing time. My dad grew up in this area, so we have been coming to perdido beach for about fifty years now. The cottage is very nice and clean. We hang out on the dock from the break of day until bedtime. We go fishing, shrimping and to Pirates Cove almost every day. Dolphins come right-up to the dock and we just love to sit out there all day! We love to eat at Wolf Bay, Tacky Jacks, Shrimp Basket and Pirates Cove. The owners are so nice and they make sure that everything is going great for our stay. We love staying here!

We enjoyed the place so much. Plenty of room for our three families. The dock area was so relaxing, watching dolphins on several occasions. Great place for tubing, skiing and other water sports. Convenient boat ramp and fishing. All was as described and owner was very helpful and accommodating.

Creek Watch

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Creek Watch. There were 9 of us (plus pets) and we had plenty of room with beds to spare. On-site boat launch and pier made things very convenient. Kitchen is stocked with very nice pots/pans/dishes, etc. We would love to rent again! and p.s. you have great neighbors both next door and across the street.
