Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I have lived in and loved Orange Beach for most of my life, I can't think of a better place to call home! In the early 1900's my family built a vacation cottage in Orange Beach called 'Bruin Cottage' (named for the local Brown Bear). For generations my family enjoyed the summer months here. From childhood, I remember dirt roads, no air conditioning & no telephone...in those days we saw more armadillos than people! All we cared about was the water and nothing else mattered. Those times have changed, Orange Beach and Gulf Shores have now become one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the country! Through my years in Orange Beach, I have been in the boat business and aerial advertising business. For many years now I've been in Real Estate and as a Realtor, I enjoy assisting people in finding their own piece of Paradise on our beautiful Island and surrounding areas. Just a phone call away and will work very hard to earn your trust and be the best host we possibly can. If you have any questions feel free to call anytime. Disclosure: The owner/manager is a licensed Real Estate agent in the State of Alabama & Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
There are so many reasons we chose this house. We love the welcoming porches, the warm feel when you walk in...like coming home, because that is exactly what it is! We love the location...sitting on the back porch listening to the Mullet jumping & watching for dolphin. The Orange Beach way of life is relaxed and casual. The sugary sand beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Boat Street Cottage is in a fantastic neighborhood, quiet and peaceful yet close to everything. We enjoy riding bikes to the Waterfront Park, watching the sunset over Wolf Bay, being able to walk to dinner at Cayman Grill. Just a couple of blocks over is the Orange Beach Recreation Center...so much to do there! Swim, work-out, tennis, basketball and more. Whether you go by boat or car...you're only minutes from a Tacky Jack's farmer's omelet. The large screened porch is a great place to gather and be out of the hot sun and you are only feet from the water. The kids can fish right in the back yard. There is plenty of room for cars & boat trailers. All of this and the beach is less than 5 minutes down the road!
