Small quaint and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great location away from the busy beach locations. Gorgeous view of the bay in the morning. 35 minute drive to the beach. Place was clean and cozy. Only complaint was the hot water doesn't last long with 3 people.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and clean. Cozy and comfortable. Access to the water right out your back door. The cottage had everything we needed. Stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and coffee pot. Water pressure was excellent!! Can't say enough good things about the property. Hope to come back soon.

The only thing I loved was proximity to the water. The sunrises are beautiful.

  • 2 of 5

The cottage needs a lot of work and I spent the better part of 2 days cleaning, Just to make it comfortable to stay in. Mold in the shower and shower curtain was disgusting, refrigerator had mold all the way around the door, inside was filthy. There are no necessities except a few pans, dishes and silverware, coffee pot, microwave, and small toaster oven. We were left with less than half a roll of toilet paper and even less paper towels. There were no pamphlets as to activities in the area. There is only one small grill which has to be shared with the main house. The outside is in desperate need of cleaning and fixing up. The only good I can say is we met some beautiful people in the main house and enjoyed visits periodically. I am not one to cause a stink, or complain but I do not feel we got our money worth or we got what was advertised.

It's not for everyone but we loved it!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cute little place for the ac because last year we camped and loved it but we were just too hot. It is so peaceful and the neighborhood is great. It's a bit of a drive to everywhere but we planned on that and it didn't bother us. We still spent a lot of time at gulf state park and a couple of days in Mobile. It was mostly clean but it is a little musty from being older and by the water and there are some bugs. It's a little beach cottage. You should expect a little beach cottage. We loved it there. It kept us cool, gave us a place to sleep, shower and eat. Our two kids (3 and 8) adore the place!! We'd stay again in a heart beat!! It was everything we needed and the price made our vacation possible!!!! Thanks guys!!
