About Betty Heinze

The house was built in 2006 on property that has been in our family for years. I was born and raised down the street in a farmhouse.

Betty Heinze purchased this house in 2006

Why Betty Heinze chose Alabama

Silverhill, in fact all of Baldwin County is a beautiful place to live and a diverse place to visit. It has a small town feel with a budding community of shops, restaurants and other businesses.

What makes this house unique

I love the location of my home because it is close enough to all the places I frequent but secluded enough that I feel like I am 'away from it all.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marc was a wonderful guest. He and his dogs were very quiet and very clean guests. I would be happy to have them stay in my home anytime.

Very pleasant.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in Ms. Betty"s home. So much more accommodating than a hotel/motel. The location was ideal for us for trips to Fairhope, Gulf Shores, Belingrath Garden, and Pensacola. I would recommend Ms. Betty's home to others.

We loved the location and the feel of a secret garden in the middle of the woods.

The whole house was very comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms were charming. We felt we were home the minute we walked in. We enjoyed plenty of hot water and the kitchen was fully usable Very quiet and the cat was adorable. Back porch was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Ms. Betty, Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The fact that the privacy of your property is outstanding and the home was perfect.......... For anyone coming to this area, if they do not have to be on the water, this IS the place to stay. Thank you again for sharing and when we come back to Fairhope we will be staying with you.

This stay stay has been amazing! The home owner is so sweet and helpful. She is also very easy to get on the phone if you need anything. The property is SPOTLESS. Great for our family of 5 including small kiddos. We love how quiet it is out here. Best nights sleep I have had in years. Loved the long tree covered driveway. The owner even left some food in the refrigerator for us!!! We will be back for sure!!! 35 minutes to gulf shores, 50 minutes to Pensacola. We made both drives a few times and it was a breeze. Grocery store nearby also. You will LOVE your stay here! Can't say enough about how smooth this was for us. :-)

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described. Betty's home is so inviting you feel relaxed the minute you set foot in it. She is a wonderful hostess as she places herself at your disposal if you have questions or information. As others have commented, the house is so well equipped you need not bring anything but yourself! The beds were very comfortable and everything is very clean. The house is indeed in the woods and that's what we liked about it. The screened porch allows you to sit and enjoy the outdoors and one of her two outdoor cats was always there to greet us. A walk around the gardens is a treat because there are interesting decorative items everywhere and fragrant blooming Confederate jasmine and gardenias (being there in May is a treat for enjoying the blooming plants.) We spent most of our time in Fairhope where there are too many good restaurants and shops to mention. We also visited Silverhill where the property is located; we went to the Silverhill Market and had lunch at Acadiana. The owner of Acadiana is from Opelousas, Louisiana so the food is Cajun and the chef visits with the customers. Tom Jones pottery is not far away where you can see them work on the pottery and shop in their showroom. The people in this area are so friendly that you want to come back again and again. This is our new home away from home when we come to Fairhope. Thank you, Betty.
