About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 Baths - Sleeps 8 Beach Front Home

Hibearnation - a place to Relax, Refresh and Dream - Year round vacation enjoyment, 200 feet from the water’s edge, and just a short walking distance from the Nature Preserve along miles of crystal clear beaches.

The ground level offers covered parking and tasteful low-level landscape lighting for comfort and security at night. Hot and cold water in the fully-enclosed lighted shower and outdoor sink make it easy to leave the 'beach' behind.

All the conveniences of your own home without the work, sleeping 8, this 3 BR/2BA spacious and well-appointed two level home features a spiral stair to a loft affording guests easy access to an additional sleeping area and even more Gulf views via the cathedral windows.

All rooms are furnished with built-in shelves, dressers, and drawers with spacious storage throughout. Sit back and enjoy the ambiance provided by the electric fireplaces in the Great room and Master Bedroom. DIRECTV access connected to six television sets with DVD and VCRs means no arguing over what to watch. A 48' LCD HDTV in the Great room is connected to a Bose surround-sound system for your listening pleasure that can also be controlled in the Master bedroom. Or, curl up with a novel from the 'book exchange' library in the Master bedroom.

The Great room offers a mirrored, granite countertop wet bar with a wine/beverage cooler. Granite countertops and tables throughout the fully equipped Kitchen (with walk-in pantry), Dining room and Great room make this living space both comfortable and easy to maintain. 'We have tried to provide everything so you don’t have to'. The screened porch with lighted ceiling fan off the Queen bedroom allows for an additional relaxing and eating space.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in the Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area for 15+ years. This may be the overall best house we've rented. It literally has everything. The beds were comfortable. The house was perfectly clean. The house is a short walk on the beach to a giant nature area so the beach is not crowded. The master bedroom looks a little outdated in the photos but don't let that fool you. The entire house is in perfect condition. The house has surround sound, TV's in every room including the loft, and nice lighting inside and out. The furniture is very comfortable. The house is also a short walk on the beach to the Beach Club resort. We'll be back.

Great home right on the beach with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the home especially its location! It had lots of outside deck area and a sandbox area, shower, picnic table, sink, and even a swing under the house. We highly recommend renting this home!

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house as a family Christmas vacation. This house is beautifully decorated and has just about anything and everything you will need for your stay! My husband and I own our own business, and I have a full-time job outside of the business so we definitely needed​ the trip to unwind and relax. The only TINY negative was that the key was extremely hard to insert in the door and turn even for my husband.

Wonderful vacation location and cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Others have talked about the cottage itself--we agree completely. It is very well organized, clean, comfortable, everything that we needed was available. Two things about the location that I am not sure others have mentioned. The cottage is about 10 minutes from the ferry to Dauphin Island. We took the ferry to Dauphin and then drove to New Orleans for the day. The ferry was fun and NOLA was a nice change of pace. Second, we walk 6 miles or so a day. Turning left from the cottage, there were few people on the beach. Bon Secour nature reserve is very close by. The beach was virtually empty while walking there. https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Bon_Secour/ We would definitely stay there again!

Clean and Comfortable! Beautiful View! Private Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Hibernation. Hurricane Nate gave us a little trouble the first day but it turned into a beautiful week. The house has a beautiful view of the Gulf, we saw dolphins on several occasions. We love the private beach. The house is comfortable, very clean and well stocked. The owners were easy to work with and quick to answer questions. We'd definitely enjoy staying again. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
