About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

FLEXIBLE DATES! September -May, owner may accept less than a 7 night 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 Gulf Shores

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!

Nice home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the stay. The home was very nice. The beach was fairly clean but the area around the house was not clean from debris from the hurricane.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice comments, but I would like to clarify that about 95% of the debris from the storm was situated in the adjacent lots to my home. As I arrived to my beach house the date of your departure, I was able to remove it all, despite the majority of it not being in my yard or my responsibility. Obviously, I strive to keep the environment on and around my property clean and free of debris, as the adjacent property owners are absentee and rarely go there. Thank you very much for your business.

Very nice home 🏡 with great views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house very much. Very close to the beach 🏖 with amazing views of the gulf and bay! Katrina was very nice to work with as we had some unfortunate weather the first day! We look forward to visiting this house again and would recommend it to anyone! Thanks for sharing your home!!

A wonderful retreat-spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We needed to "de-stress" for a couple days, and this was the perfect place. Toward the end of Fort Morgan Road in Gulf Shores, the home is situated almost exactly between Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico-about 200 yards each way. Pick the view you want, sunrise, sunset, the bay or the gulf. Two bedrooms upstairs, one down, nice kitchen and dining area, great living room areas, plus the huge decks made for a enjoyable stay. Everything needed for a short stay was iincluded, from the kitchen being fully equipped to a new washer and dryer. We will definitely book this house again, and the owner, Katrina, answers her phone and is very pleasant to work with.

This was so perfect and just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I contacted the owner, the experience was great. We were kind of stuck trying to get to Florida but realized we needed to detour and hang a few days in the Gulf Shores area, till Irma passed. Not only did Katrina get back with me in no time, she was so helpful and got us in there with such ease. Then we get there...and it's Heaven! Perfect location, beautiful cottage, just excellent! I can't wait to come back and stay a longer period of time, because we definitely will be coming back. Never had been to the gulf shores area but staying at KCs cove will make it a regular vacation spot.

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!!
