Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the home in the month of November just as the weather began to turn a bit cooler along the coast. The home was very well furnished and the four bedrooms allowed everyone in our family to have their own space. All of the bathrooms have been updated and the kitchen was well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owners were kind and very helpful. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a low-key, relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christopher for the thoughtful review. It is appreciated. This family gathered at our home for short vacation after experiencing the personal and occupational trials of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and coastal Texas. I"m very happy they enjoyed themselves and the house meet all of their needs. They were wonderful to deal with from booking through departure.

Relaxing, comfortable, beautiful home & setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property in October. We could not have been more pleased. We have children ranging in age from 7 years to 21 years old and everyone was comfortable and found activities to enjoy. The abundance of beds and the layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms allowed us to spread out and also to be able to put the younger kids to bed early. We enjoyed early morning coffee conversations as the sun came up and also watching the sunset over the Bay. Fishing, crabbing, biking, board games, outdoor cooking and dining on the deck, meals together, couldn't have asked for a better weekend together as a family. Walking to adjacent property at the Grand Hotel was a treat. We were able to enjoy cocktails and play croquet, horseshoes, ping pong & ladder ball. The hosts were eager to meet our every need. We are looking forward to staying at this property again.

The sunsets were amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, it felt like home. The owner and his wife met me at the house and gave me a quick tour. The whole house was very well equipped. We really didn't need anything else. The owner even left a tray of sandwiches in the refrigerator for us. Three families were very comfortable . My elderly father who is on a walker easily maneuvered around the house and easily out onto the pier to enjoy the amazing view. The pier was also very well equipped. The crab traps were used to catch three dozen delicious crabs. We have already began plans to return next year .

Owner's Response: Yet another Five Star review! I'm very grateful for this review, and its really inspiring when our guests will take the time to write such nice things about our home. This family took great care of the house, and were excellent to do business with from booking thru departure. We would be proud to have them come back. Our home is used by our family extensively. As such, and in a effort to provide a complete package, it has many conveniences and accessories that simply are not provided maybe in a typical rental home. I always tell our guests to travel light, as I suspect that most anything they might want is already at the house.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just great. It is close to everything and the pier is amazing. Thank you so much for the use of the crab traps, bikes, etc. It was a wonderful couple of days and can't wait to return. Fairhope is quite a paradise.

Owner's Response: Its really gratifying when our guests write a review. I truly believe the reviews are very helpful to both travelers and owners. This guest mentioned our wharf and a few of the extra items we have available at the house. I understand the hassle and difficulty in traveling and trying to bring everything that you might want or need with you. We try real hard to be certain that our house has everything that a guest might need, and we also have most all of the extras that might make the visit more enjoyable. Thank you for the AWESOME!!!!!!!!! review. I do hope you will return.
