About Peggy

Owners are Larry and Peggy Adams. Larry was professor 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 Alabama

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was precisely as advertised! Close to beach and the facility was clean and well equipped. I met Larry and he was very helpful. The amenities were great as well. We really enjoyed our trip.

Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Very close to both pool and beach but with plenty of privacy. The furniture was comfortable and the unit was well stocked. It was just the two of us so we did not use the upstairs at all but it looked very pleasant and the small water view was from the deck off the upper large bedroom. The complex was well maintained and secure. We would definitely rent this unit again it was a pleasant stay.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect--no complaints at all about the home. We had everything we needed at the home furnished. The beds were comfortable and the bunk beds were a hit with the kids. We plan to stay there again next year.

November get away!

  • 5 of 5

I think this November was the most beautiful in years. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. The cottage was perfect; quiet, well maintained, and in a great location. We enjoyed the resort amenities; beautiful beach, hot tub, tennis court and the nearby golf course. Unfortunately the indoor pool was closed due to maintenance. Many days we had the treat of watching the Blue Angels from the top balcony or out on the beach. Hope to be back soon!!! Thank you Peggy!

Owner's Response: Jamie, We are so glad you enjoyed our cottage and the resort amenities. Fall a nd Spring are much favorite times at the beach. I am sorry the pool was closed for maintenance while you were there. I didn't know it was doing to be closed but that's necessary at times, I guess. I enjoy watching the blue angels, too, so I'm glad you got to see them practice. Thanks so much for choosing our littler piece of paradise. Peggy

A great week here

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place for a relaxing vacation. House was clean and neat. Kitchen was well stocked. Beds were comfortable. The location to the pool, hot tub, and beach walk were especially nice. Only negative that I can think of, and this is minor, is that the dresser drawers in the downstairs bedroom were difficult to manage. We will be back!

Beautiful House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was very nice! It was clean and well kept. We loved the location. Beach is beautiful and we also enjoyed the pool and hot tub. I liked the fact that it was a gated community. I also found it to be very affordable. There are very nice restaurants in the area and other attractions.

We will definitely be back!

We had a great stay at this property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo. It was clean, decorated nicely and very accurate to the pictures. Peggy was easy to deal with and the condo was well stocked. The property was very clean and well landscaped. We loved the short walk to the beach and the fact that it was not super crowded. We would definitely stay here again.
