Located in the heart of downtown Fairhope, the Camellia Cottage offers a relaxed, comfortable home away from home. Vacationers can satisfy all of their dining, shopping and entertainment needs by just walking out the front door! Visitors can also relax on the front porch and watch all the happenings of downtown Fairhope go by or retreat to the back porch for those times when a bit more privacy is desired. The cottage has a sitting room and a separate tv room for those traveling with children or for those who would like to book an extended stay and need a bit more room or as we say in the architecture business, a variety of areas.
The cottage is situated 'on the beaten path' and is directly in front of the 'Getaway Cottage', our other VRBO listing. So if you are in town for a family event and need more room, please take a look. Also, the Camellia Cottage has a third bedroom available upon request, to accommodate larger groups whether it be 3 couples, families traveling with children or extended families. Whatever the need, we feel we can accommodate.

Great location to take morning walk along Bay, through Fairhope or both. Very stylish and very roomy place (would be perfect for two couples or a family of 4). You can pretty much walk to everything and downtown has great places to eat (we ate somewhere different every night). Everything you need to prepare meals at cottage also. There is golf course within driving distance also. Great accommodations and a great little town to visit for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
First the positives-
Gina was responsive, furnishings were attractive, unit was clean, and location is fantastic. You can walk to town or Bay in minutes
If the weather is nice, you cannot open the windows. The rear sliding door had a screen but the front door did not. Windows are sealed: you can't get cross-ventilation.
The carpeting in the master bedroom and den were badly stained and the kitchen floor linoleum has a huge tear covered with clear tape. Air filters were filthy although Gina did eventually replace them.
Unit probably fine for young people, staying in the house just a weekend to attend a wedding or such. It needs serious attention to get repeaters. The house merits decent flooring.
The cottage was perfect for our vacation. It is convenient to shops and restaurants, and it is so cute! The layout and amenities make it a great place to stay!
This cottage is located in a great location in downtown Fairhope. It was very easy to walk to the shops and restaurants. We are looking forwarding to staying again.
My husband and I stayed here recently to attend a wedding. We are not fond of small, cramped hotel rooms~Even 5 star hotels have their drawbacks. We always search VRBO first and that's how we found this gem! Perfect location on Fairhope Avenue for shopping and dining! Just a short walk to the pier and park! Very well appointed inside with very comfy beds and linens. There were 2 full baths which I enjoyed so I could get ready without having to share the space with hubby. Great kitchen and 2 living areas.
The only drawback(as I see it) is if you share with another couple~the 2nd bathroom is right outside MBR which may or may not be an issue for some. However for 1 couple, a girls group, or a family it is perfect!
The timing of our visit was great. No crowds. Lots of good weather (warm) but very pleasant. Easy walk to shopping and sight-seeing. Enjoyable evening and morning walk to the pier for viewing sunsets and fisherman. Nearby restaurants were great.
And the home stay was very comfortable and spacious. Took advantage of the grill for steak & turf.
Anayone visiting must try the seafood------esp. the Royal Reds (local shrimp).
