About Dianne Mercer

I bought the lot in 2005 and wanted to build my home here. The apartment was completed in October of 2013. I was born and raised in Alabama but moved to Houston and was there for 17 years. I missed being in Alabama and close to the beach. I have been in Fairhope now for 21 years and I love it here. You can walk everywhere from here, downtown shopping, art galleries or down to the bay. There is a great art community here and everyone is so friendly. It's just a great old historic town.

Dianne Mercer purchased this apartment in 2013

Great location...

  • 5 of 5

...and nicely furnished, high ceilings, park car 10-steps from front door, everything you could possibly imagine needing for a 4 or 5 day stay is all included in this fully equipped apartment; even is next door to a park (in case a child is in-tow and gets restless). You could not find a better / more central location in downtown Fairhope (300 ft away from all the restaurants and shops), yet still manages to be completely tucked -away from the 'activity' when you want to chill-out.

Welcoming perfect,little getaway in the middle of town

  • 5 of 5

Everything went seamlessly! Whenever we had a question Dianne would respond right away and help out. The bright apartment was very clean and a fresh welcoming breeze.Everything was there that one could need.The bed was very comfortable,too.The entire little place was so well thought through & well designed!

The location was quiet and yet in the middle of town so you could walk everywhere.

If we come back to Fairhope we will definitely hope to stay at Dianne's place again.It was perfect! Thank you !
