About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

FLEXIBLE DATES! September -May, owner may accept less than a 6 day rental. KC's Cove is directly situated across from Mobile Bay (St. Andrew's Bay) and has a magnificent view from the north side of the house, including both the main and upper decks. The view of the Gulf of Mexico sparkles so brilliantly from the back (south) deck, and with the brilliant white sand, your sunshades will always be in order. Picture yourself sitting on the back deck soaking up the sun, while hearing the sound of the pounding surf, drinking in the smell of the warm salt air, and hearing the call of the laughing sea gulls circling above, with a lone Pelican slowly lumbering past.... You don't want to sit in the sun? Well, there is a lovely concreted area underneath the house with a picnic table, a large swing, and room to relax out of the sun but still hearing the surf, seeing the beach, smelling the salt air and feeling the constant Gulf southerly breeze blowing against your face.

KC's two (2) story, 1500 sq. ft., three (3) bedroom, two and a half (2.5) baths, full size washer/dryer, with a fully equipped kitchen---is all you need for your beach get away. Conveniently situated just a few 100 yards from the actual beach (beach side), and the stunning Mobile Bay on the other---with small boat access at the natural boat launch...and a birding site to boot! Wow! KC's not only offers wonderful views, but also with updated accommodations at an affordable price! What else do you need? Well, with granite counter tops, driftwood hardwood flooring, updated bathroom fixtures, new mattresses, and a well equipped kitchen; it is not only comfortable, but is just plain out cute with a pleasing beach and water themed decor. KC's is all you need for your party of eight (8) guests or less to have a great time at the beach.

About owner/property manager

KC is originally from her heart's home, Mobile, but now resides in Michigan. Despite being long distant, KC is the manager of this property and with expert and reliable local help, she is able to efficiently manage from afar. She wants you to have a great time, make many lasting 'great' memories, and really wants you to 'want' to come back to KC's in LA (Lower Alabama) for your next vacation! KC is readily available via phone, email, and can be there in a day....if needed!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 1995

Why owner/property manager chose Alabama

KC's Cove offers it all; from the spectacular views, to privacy, to easy access to the beach, fishing, birding, swimming, sun bathing, restaurants, boating, and the list goes on. KC's pricing is straight forward with no hidden fees, and best of all is affordable with most all the benefits of beach front homes.

What makes this house unique

KC fell in love with this home because of the outstanding views of Mobile Bay. The view from either side of the house is ever changing, as during the summer, there are spectacular sunset views over the Bay; during the winter, there are spectacular sunset views over the Gulf. Hearing the sound of the surf, the laugh of the sea gulls, the prehistoric look of the pelicans, the smell of the salt air...don't you just want to be there? Have a small boat? Well, there is a 'natural' boat launch site directly across the road, which also is a certified birding site, for all of you bird watchers. All you have to do is sit on any of 3 decks and get a different perspective on the beauty of the area. Watching the boats on the Bay, wandering down the road a piece to historic Fort Morgan, standing on the end of the peninsula at the mouth of the Mobile Bay, and watching the ferry boat go past on its way to Dauphin Island--there's nothing better. What can be said? Nothing, except you need to come and experience for yourself a vacation at KC's Cove!

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just right for what we needed! Very cute inside & had everything we needed for our stay. It was not far from the beach - a nice walk. Wish the weather was as nice as the house - Tropical Storm Cindy came through & it rained for 3 days. If we make it back down there we would surely rent this house again!!

Fun Time with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

The property was very accommodating. We were all together yet each one had his own space. We had everything we needed for a week of family time and relaxation. The grandkids enjoyed afternoons on the beach even though it rained some almost everyday we were there. Would like to consider this property again soon.

KC Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at KC Cottage. It is very neat and clean. There were more than enough towels, and all cleaning and cooking product

The house was close enough to the beach, which was nice.

The owner was easily reached when we needed to get assistance. We would definitely stay there again.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying at KC Cove for our Thanksgiving break. The owner Katrina is extremely quick to respond. The beach is within a 3 minute walk from the house. The house is fully equipped with internet and direct tv with comfortable furniture you would have at home. We will definitely be back!

Love, love, love the house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and dog's vacation to the beach. In under a minute's walking distance by a path through the empty lot next door, and BAM! there's the water access to the beach. The house is equipped with everything you could ever need for a great beach vacation, including toys and a beach wagon to haul them with. I don't want to stay anywhere else, ever again, when I go.
