Car: Recommended

Beautiful, quiet location, just down the street from the ferry and historic ' Fort Morgan'. A cozy cottage nestled on the shores of Mobile Bay. The perfect location for swimming, fishing, and Dolphin watching. A short 20 minute drive from all the shopping and restaurants of Gulf Shores.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Having grown up in Mobile, my sister and I developed a lifelong love for the beach. Now, we both live in Texas with our families and look forward to coming home to our vacation getaway by the beach, our 'Coastal Cottage'.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
This house is on a quiet peninsula, with a beautiful view of the bay..dolphins regularly swim right out in front of the house. We love living on the bay and having the Gulf just across the street, a 5 min. walk. No high rises, tourist traps or noise here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fishing and swimming are just outside our door. We have our own private, sandy bay beach. Our shady, downstairs swing is the perfect respite from a busy day of fishing or frolicking on the beach.
