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.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous! This was the first time we ventured to take our combined families, of seven (9 yr old, 3 teenage girls and an adult son) on a spring break trip. Everything was just as it was described. I was very happy with the cleanliness, as I can be a freak about that! There was plenty to do within the Plantation, however, we spent most of our time on the beach! There was something for everyone. The weather was beautiful, as was the beach. The nets, in storage, was a huge hit! The kids used them to catch and release crabs at night. I could go on and on about our trip and this place. We will definitely be returning, and will most likely try and stay at same location. Peggy was also very helpful and quick to respond with any questions and concerns we had. She was great to work with. You will not be disappointed if you choose this place!

Comfortable house with great location to the beach and pools.

  • 4 of 5

This house was very nice for my family! My parents joined my husband and I, along with our one year old and four year old. The short walk to the beach was easy for us, even with the children and our stuff. We appreciated having access to the workout facilities and pools. My boys loved the beach toys provided and the adults appreciated the beach chairs and small beach umbrella. Although the house is 20 minutes or more away from most activities in the Gulf Shores area, our family didn't mind since our children were perfectly content to play on the beach and in the pools. The kitchen had everything we needed and our family cooked most of our meals. Our only minor complaints are: we wish there had been a high chair and a pack and play for our one year old and the internet did not work quickly, if at all throughout our stay.

Overall, we can't complain. Peggy was very responsive to my questions and the house was clean and comfortable and suited our needs. I would recommend this home to friends and family!

Pictures don't do this house justice. Beautiful, clean, right next to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

My family came so our boys could see the ocean for the very first time and we wanted something that wouldn't be busy and was extremely close to beach. We couldn't have found a more perfect place to stay for our weekend there. The house was beautifully decorated and fully stocked with whatever we needed to cook with. The beach it's next to was never busy and was extremely clean and the kids loved having access to the pool and hot tub if they couldn't be in the ocean for whatever reason. They seem to go above and beyond to make their guests comfortable and happy with their stay. Peggy always replied back extremely quickly to any questions I had and even contacted me after the visit, over something that was forgotten that I thought i had lost unpacking at home, and offered to send it back to me. We're planning to make this a regular trip and hope to get lucky enough to get this same house every time!

Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely perfect! The downstairs master bed rooms bed was pretty squeaky but we made it work. We had to bedshare with our 8 month old but he slept through the night so I guess we can't complain too much. Thats the only recommendation I could make. Maybe a pack n play and high chair for the family's with little ones? The kitchen was perfect for breakfast/lunch and we drove into Gulf Shores for dinner. The beach was a little walk down the boardwalk and we were able to rent an umbrella/chairs for the week without any problems. The beach wasn't crowded at all and was absolutely perfect! On our last full day a storm was coming in so we spent the day at the indoor pool. It was clean and not overly crowded. Our family is already planning our next vacation and we are hoping to get this same condo. We will definitely be sending your info to our family/friends for future vacations. Thanks again for the hospitality!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. So glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. We are hoping you do come back again. We will think about adding a pack and play and high chair if we can find a good place to store them.

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.
