About Peggy

Owners are Larry and Peggy Adams. Larry is a college professer at a north Alabama University. Peggy is a retired rocket scientist. We both love the beach!

Peggy purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peggy chose Gulf Shores

Buying this property will enable us to spend a lot of time at the beach with our family, spend some quiet time there in the Fall and Winter after retirement, and also give us a great rental property.

What makes this cottage unique

Southern Delight is more private than a condo, has great beach and gulf views, has private parking, is located in a resort with great amenities, and is next door to Kiva Dunes Golf Resort.

Summer Get a Way

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and spacious. The AC was in good working order which was a great relief when coming back in from the heat. The washer and dryer was a definite advantage for our stay. Convenient to the beach, pools, hot tub and ice machine. The owner even has extra beach chairs and athletic equipment stored for general use. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for everything.

Beautiful, spacious, beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids, and myself loved our stay at Southern Delight. We had more than enough room and didn't even use one of the bedrooms. Southern Delight had everything that we needed. It was a short walk to the beach. There was plenty of beach chairs and toys provided. The kids enjoyed the pools too. We will definitely be back. The owners were quick to answer questions I emailed prior to our stay.

Nice family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo and the Fort Morgan area. The condo fit our family needs great. The pools were close and the short walk to the beach made everything so easy. The condo itself could use some minor repairs. Basic wear and tear issues with a beach condo but nothing that would ruin a vacation. We would definitely stay at this condo again.
