About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Sea Stars cottage has a casual elegance that is user friendly while being plump with pillows and comforts.

Below the house is the covered parking on the road side. Pass through the gate/doors to find a small fenced in yard and patio/party area on the beach side. Aside from 2 bedrooms (1 Queen, 1 KING) and a large shared bath on the main floor there is the huge open area which consists of living dining and kitchen. The kitchen offers a 6 burner restaurant style gas range and seperate side by side freezer and refrigerator as well as every cooking convenience we could think of.

Behind the kitchen is additional pantry space and the 'duet' washer & dryer. The living area faces the great Gulf of Mexico mere steps beyond the covered 10 x 30' deck. The bar contains a wine refrigerator. There is a wide screen TV above the gas fireplace and cushy seating for many.

Upstairs find the very special 'honeymoon suite' Gulf side, complete with king canopied bed, private deck with seating and an attached private bath. Additionally on the 2nd floor are 2 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 twin +twin + trundle) on the north side, facing the lagoon, 2 more bathrooms and a library/twin + twin room that faces S.E.

Please check out the Sea Stars Cottage website at the link below for more pictures and a video!

Sea Stars Cottage is of an unusual design, is very comfortable, a bit whimsical and absolutely charming. Please ENJOY!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Kerry and Sherry Parks. Gulf shores, Alabama. USA.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
When Hurricane Ivan destroyed our previous beach house (Sunflowers) we moved this house (Sea Stars Cottage) from the lagoon shore across the street to it's current site. Originally designed for a large family, alas, even the 'baby' is about to graduate high school and has begun packing for University. It is time to downsize. This is the first season on a rental program. Beach life is unique, particularly if one is a naturalist... it is a certain paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The majestic and ever changing Gulf of Mexico serves up fresh scenery regularly, from aero-squadrons of pelicans soaring above to pods of dolphins passing daily. Fishing is excellent and we can arrange surf fishing lessons for your group. Your expert, 'Pompano Jerry' supplies everything & will even clean and prepare your fresh catch of the day for cooking. Photo ops abound! Our white 'sugar sands' beach is unusual and occasionally gets written up as one of the worlds best beaches. Sea turtles nest here, mostly Loggerheads with a rare Ridley to be precise. We monitor the nests and assist in hatchings. Our guests are welcomed to watch these incredible proceedings. The house is expansive and is uniquely furnished with our guests' comfort and pleasure in mind. To purchase any of the mermaid paintings in the library, contact Sherry. We hope you love it as much as we do!
