About the Property
6 Bedrooms, Wood Fireplace, Bayfront With Pier And Boathouse.
The Historic Volante Hotel was completely refurbished and updated inside but retains its old Southern Charm from the 1890's. Spend your holiday in a true southern mansion. Historic oak trees with Spanish moss grace the extensive gardens planted to attract hummingbirds. There are wrap around verandas on both the first and second levels. The house has 3 levels and 6 large bedrooms. There are 4 bathrooms all complete with shower facilities. Relax on the veranda and sip your mint julep. The property has beach access and a 300+ ft private pier with a large boathouse. Moor your boat at the boathouse with electronic jet ski lift. The property is on a private no outlet street and is very quiet despite being less than 5 minutes drive from the center of Fairhope. The beach is sandy and good for walking, swimming or boating. It is a wonderful house for family reunions, or to just step back in time and get away from it all. The furnishings have been carefully selected to provide comfort and charm. We accept payment by check or EFT only.

Fairhope is a lovely gracious Southern Town with Historic buildings, gardens with old Oak trees and Spanish Moss. Pensacola Florida and Gulf Shores are a short 30 minute drive away.
Year Purchased: 2013
About: Tony and Margaret are residents of Australia. We have another property on VRBO in New Hampshire. We are US citizens but have been living and working in Australia since 1995. This property is near Margaret's mother who lives in the Pascagoula area. We found the house and fell in love with it's original southern charm. Margaret was born in Biloxi, Mississippi and is a southern girl at heart. This is the perfect place for escaping the harsh periods of the northern US Winter.
Why Fairhope, AL, USA:
This property has been lovingly restored to accent the 1800's in the south but completely updated with modern accents and appliances. It is a historic hotel that catered to the genteel society of the day. Oak floors, period furnishings, large wood burning fireplace and spectacular views are only the beginning. The graceful gardens flower all year long with large camellias, azaleas, perennials, and oaks bearing Spanish moss. The gardens were planted to attract hummingbirds. The house is great for family gatherings.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
There are two levels of wrap-around verandahs complete with furniture in both the front and back of the house. Many private areas for relaxing and contemplation. The area is so quiet and is like stepping back in time some 100+ years. Yet the town of Fairhope is just some 4-5 minutes drive away. Access to the beach is by stair, with landing. The beach is sandy and is suitable for daily walks and the Yacht club is just a short walk some 300 ft from the private pier. The property has a private pier with a grand boathouse complete with electric jet ski lift and power and water. There is a dock at the end of the boathouse for swimming, crabbing, and fishing. The gardens are spectacular with flowers blooming all seasons.
