Wonderful Experience. Made me think back to my days as a child.

  • 5 of 5

My family always go to Fairhope for an annual reunion. It was my son, daughter, wife, grandchildren and nephew. The house was perfect for our needs and had a wonderful view of the bay. We plan to go again next year and intend to book this house.

This cottage by the bay offers a perfect combination of charm, comfort and convenience.

Nicely furnished with quality bedding, linens, and a well-stocked kitchen.

The setting is idyllic, and the guest cottage included in the rental would be a bonus

for larger families/groups. It is a lovely place to spend time! Looking forward

to another visit to the cottage and the Fairhope area.

Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 day stay on Mobile Bay. The house was just perfect for our families needs. We loved sitting on the pier drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. In the evenings the kids really enjoyed fishing. We were also able to do a little waterskiing. The boat launch was really convient. It's only a few hundred yards away.

The check in and out process was made very easy. We cannot wait to return. We are going to try to make it a family tradition to stay each year at this particular bay house.

This was an awesome house! We got married at Oak Hollow Farm and this was the perfect house for my family. The girls got ready here before the wedding. Will definitely stay here again!

Loved the house and pier!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bay house for 5 days and loved it! It is a great house. The sunsets over the water were incredible. We loved the city of Fairhope and loved Sunday brunch at the Grand Marriott Hotel. The only thing we would have liked is a larger, flat screen television. We are a big football family and the Saturday we were there was opening day of college football. We had to go somewhere else to find a big screen television. But, everything else was wonderful. Thank you for a fabulous vacation.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved this place! We are somewhat picky, so we appreciated that this house didn't have typical rental-beach-house decor. It is sophisticated, meticulously clean, and well thought out in terms of comfort and convenience.

The bedding is high quality and very comfortable. There were 5 of us, and although the bedrooms are small, we had plenty of space in the living room and on the pier and deck to enjoy ourselves. The early mornings and sunsets on the bay were magical.

Monica met us at the property, showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. Everything was exactly as described or better. The one thing we didn't realize was that there aren't many restaurants close by, and the 8-10 mile drive to Fairhope can be a little long when you go out to dinner. Other than that, this was a great house and one we'd definitely recommend to our friends.
