About George

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 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.

George purchased this house in 1999

Why George chose Alabama

There are so many reasons we chose this house. We love the welcoming porches, the warm feel when you walk 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.

What makes this house unique

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 much to do there! Swim, work-out, tennis, basketball and more. Whether you go by boat or'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!

We travel to Orange Beach several times each year to offshore fish. Boat Street Cottage is always the first place we check for availability. Without question one of the nicest rental properties in the area. Extremely well maintained, clean, and tastefully decorated. Furnished with everything you need to feel like home. The setting in a quite neighborhood, on a canal, among the Live Oaks is perfect. The location is close to everything, but off the main road, so you hardly notice any traffic. The owner is very accommodating and responsive to your needs, although we have never had any need to call on him. We will be back to Boat Street Cottage very soon.

Can't say enough about Mr. George. He was very accommodating and flexible with our needs. For the most part we enjoyed our stay here. Loved the location! However, the beds were extremely uncomfortable and the carpets/rugs/comforters were not in the best shape. The carpet and rugs were absolutely filthy and stained!! A few of the outdoor furnishings were weathered/torn and not replaced. Not what I'm used to when spending the same fee as a luxury condo in the area that offers pristine conditions.

When we first arrived the house is much bigger in person than the pictures show! It rained for the first 2 days we were there but there was plenty for everyone to do! We fished all hours of the day! The master bath tub was awesome! Location was perfect! Just a few minutes away from all attractions and the beach! We would def. recommend this house and if vacation in Orange beach again we will checking to stay here again. The owners were fantastic to work with! Great house!!!

Couldn't have been better

The Boat Street Cottage was a perfect place for 3 senior siblings and a friend to spend the winter. The 2 pet owners enjoyed exploring the quiet neighborhood as they walked their dogs. The porch and the deck were favorite places to hang out when the sun was shining. We enjoyed watching the many birds in the backyard and the canal. Several wonderful restaurants offering early bird specials and happy hour are nearby. And we all took advantage of the library which was within walking distance. A great place for pet owners. NA

This is a lovely home that is off the beaten path yet close to everything. The home is well stocked in the kitchen and even had all kinds of games for inside and out. We will definitely stay here again!
