About the property

Start the day perched from a vantage that can yield a spectacular sunrise. If you are lucky, a school of bottle-nose porpoises will pass just off the end of the pier. A place where brown pelicans and seagulls dive for fish and wild ducks glide just out of reach into perfect landings in the small canal that runs alongside the house. Equip yourself with a rod and enjoy some of the best fishing around, or head out with your favorite book as the tide gently laps at the foot of the pilings of the pier. Weeks bay is a treasure of undiscovered natural beauty. The cozy little cabin comes equipped with three bedrooms, two baths and all the amenities needed for good living, including a washer, and dryer. The cabin sleeps up to ten with couches and bunks for the little fishermen. Strategically located, headquarters is just 15 minutes from downtown Fairhope where you can enjoy shopping the quaint little boutiques; or drive forty minutes south to sun on the beautiful white sands of Gulf Shores. Between excursions on the rivers that feed the small bay, you can tie the boat at the end of the pier; or dock alongside the house in the small channel depending on the tides. For dinner, you can cook fresh seafood ( caught or bought) in the full kitchen, or try one of the many restaurants in whatever direction you happen to drive. Then get up the next day and start all over again.

Great Place To Stay
It is a great vacation get away and a great place to just relax.
Fantastic location on Weeks Bay, right on the water, where the pelicans put on a show every afternoon. About 15 minutes from Point Clear, 20 from Fairhope. Comfortable house with well stocked kitchen. The two of us and our two dogs loved rambling around the property and onto the pier, which the owner repaired just days after Hurricane Nate. Very responsive and considerate owners. We will be back!
Love the isolation and view. Trapping a few blue crab and fishing was fun. Kayaking was fun.
Family get together location was perfect for our interests: crabbing. fishing, kayaking, cooking, and biking. Perfect location for relaxing in a quiet area with an awesome view of the bay. Billy's Seafood provided fresh seafood for really nice meals. This was my fourth visit at Sunrise Cottage. My family has many fond memories. We love the location.
Perfect week in a perfect setting
Nice place to be able to spend time relaxing.
Beautiful home and place away from the hustle and bustle!
We absolutely loved our stay at the sunrise cottage! The home was even better than expected, the neighbors were friendly, and it had that country feel we love but was close enough to everything to enjoy the beach and activities! Will absolutely stay again!
