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 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.

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.

Wonderful week for the family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! we had 4 adults and 4 children. The house was big enough that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other but not so big we didn't see each other. The house is right across from two of the pools. The beach is so close that the 3 year old could walk to it without being picked up. The beds were comfortable and even the pull out sofa bed received praise. Having 2 master bedrooms was really nice since 2 families split the cost.

Peggy quickly responded to all our questions so we were well prepare for our visit. This was an amazing visit to the Plantation and we can't wait till next year.

Second stay and everything was great!

Comfortable and close to beach!

  • 4 of 5

We were overall very pleased with our experience. The condo is a super short walk from the beach and close access to pools, perfect for my little ones. My kids also loved the bunk room!

Perfect for a beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great!! It was very clean and had everything you could need. The pool is right across from the cottage and the beach is only a short walk away. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and had plenty of room! Property owners were always quick to respond with any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this cottage for your next beach getaway!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Peggy did all they could to make sure our vacation was comfortable. An issue was taken care of very promptly and it was a great pleasure to meet them during our stay. We do not hesitate to recommend this couple and any of their properties. The house was convenient to the beach. Our daughters enjoyed the multiple pools to choose from as well as the fitness room. The beach chairs provided with the unit allowed us less crowded packing. Book and'll not be disappointed!
