Osprey Villa is the ultra-quiet get-away thats only minutes away from all the tourists and tourists spots. Unbelievable. Located in the Pirates Cove area, on the north side of Wolf Bay, about 3 miles due north of Orange Beach.
It's QUIET here! NO crowds and NO traffic!
If you're tired of vacationing in a shoebox, packed into a big building with a bunch of people you don't know, you might like this.

Most don't want to leave Osprey Villa when they get here. But if you want to venture out, you are a short drive to The Wharf, where you'll find all kinds of restaurants, bars, shops, Rave theater, and a world class amphitheater featuring the top entertainment. Also within a short drive is the World famous LuLu's (famous because LuLu is Jimmy Buffet's sister and he sometimes shows up at the restaurant unannounced!), Tacky Jacks, or Acme Oyster House.. The beautiful Soldiers Creek Golf Club is only a five minute drive to the North. The infamous Pirates Cove is 4 miles away (best 'dive' bar and hamburger joint on the Coast).
Want to shop? The largest outlet mall in the South is only 15 minutes back into civilization.
And yes, a large pontoon boat is on site and experienced boaters are welcome to use it! (you pay for the fuel you use). The boat is great for sightseeing, sun tanning, exploring, fishing...! Its really slow, but it is reliable and very economical.
Something you won't find at most vacation rentals....Trees! Osprey Villa has thousands of trees and plants! Palms, live oaks, magnolias, river burch, cypress, red oaks, oleanders, bananas, loblolly pines, redbuds, azaleas, lemons, satsumas, peach.... goes on and on - we've catalogued over 5000 individual plants, and nearly 100 species.
I know all of this 'sounds' really great. But possibly the best feature Osprey Villa has to offer is the lack of noise. What you are likely to hear: Osprey (fishing hawks), pelicans, ducks, geese, dolphins, speckle trout, the occasional fishing boat or dolphin tour boat, the occasional cigarette boat making a high speed run in the Intercoastal, crabs (jk), the pool dribbling over the infinity edge, the breeze blowing through the palms, or maybe some Bob Marley tunes coming from your Cabana.
What you are NOT likely to hear: Traffic, crowds, announcements, elevator dings, horns, sirens, people complaining, or annoying people (unless you bring 'em....and PLEASE don't bring annoying people to our paradise)....
Osprey Villa is very easy to get to. The Villa is located approximately 40 minutes from Pensacola Airport, and little over one hour from the Mobile Airport. Drive times are approximately four hours from Birmingham, five hours from Atlanta, nine hours from Dallas / Houston / Nashville.
