The entire family can spend a fun filled week together in our roomy beach cottage. The beach is an easy, short 5 minute drive away and we're located just one block away from the Orange Beach Recreation Center which offers fitness classes, a gym, heated pool and tennis courts for a small daily fee. Our house is conveniently located near restaurants, marinas, and city parks. Osprey Watch, named after our neighborhood's world famous osprey offers you an escape to the coast - as well as an escape from the crowds.
Start your morning off with a cup of coffee in one our rocking chairs on the front porch. A big live oak tree covers our front yard with shade and the front porch has two ceiling fans to keep you cool. You’ll be greeted by the joggers and walkers that enjoy exercising in one of Orange Beach’s most welcoming neighborhoods.
The home features an open floor plan and is furnished 'beach style' with beautiful and comfortable rattan furniture. The living area contains a love seat, sofa, a recliner and an oversized chair with ottoman for kicking up your feet after a busy day at the beach or on the water. Reading lamps grace each side of the room which gives you plenty of light for reading your favorite novels. The room boasts a media center consisting of a new 50' Smart TV, as well as a DVD player, sound bar and Apple TV. The home is Wi-Fi equipped which can be accessed from the entire house, including the porches and deck.
Osprey Watch has been our second home for the past 10 years and our kitchen is equipped better than most rentals. We have a deep fryer, food processor, blender, toaster, iced tea maker, cookie sheets and even a cake pan. There is regular food and then there’s beach food. This kitchen is stocked for beach food! There is even an old fashioned ice cream churn for creating memories as well as a delicious dessert. Our table seats 8 comfortably and two more can eat at the bar.
Osprey Watch sleeps 9 comfortably in their own beds. No need for a sleeper sofa when you have this many beds. All of the bedrooms, including the bunk room have their own LCD TVs. Bedroom #1 has twin beds, Bedroom #2 has a queen as well as a twin bed. The bunk room has twin beds. These bedrooms adjoin a large bathroom with tub/shower combo.
The large master suite has new luxurious bedding and high thread count sheets. An antique desk serves as a makeup table and makes it easy to get ready for dinner at one of Orange Beach’s fabulous restaurants. An ensuite bathroom is decorated with beadboard wainscoting that adds to the cottage style decor. The master has a new LCD Smart TV for watching movies in bed.
One of our favorite features of the house is the HUGE 600 square foot screen porch which runs the entire width of the home. The porch has new wicker furnishings including two wicker chairs and a dining set that seats 6. We spend a lot of time on the porch thanks to three ceiling fans that keep everything cool. Strings of white lights surround the porch in soft light creating a magical atmosphere.
The porch has a ping-pong table as well as a Bimini Ring Game (just like the one at LuLu's). Visitors to our house stay entertained for hours playing this simple game. Be careful if you get challenged to play by one of the kids!
The screen porch opens onto a large deck which has an umbrella covered patio set for additional seating. The deck is also home to a new CharBroil Infrared gas grill and we have sizzling steak plates for serving your creation in style. With all of this, you may find yourself eating out less and enjoying more family time at the cottage. Our backyard is professionally landscaped and managed and is surrounded by a privacy fence so you can feel at ease letting your kids (or pet) play outside.
The neighborhood has 2 private sandy beaches where your kids can play without crowds. In addition, there is another area at the end of our street with a private pier. Around the corner is a small public area with another pier. You are literally surrounded by water in our neighborhood and there are plenty of access points to allow you to enjoy it.
FOR THE BOATER - Our house has ample room to park your boat. We can park our 22 ft bay boat in the driveway and even keep the tow vehicle connected. When you return from a day on the water, a water hose is conveniently located to flush out the motor. Our neighborhood has a private boat launch that provides hassle free launching. The launch is located on Bay La Launch and is convenient for trips to Pirate’s Cove, The Wharf and LuLu’s. Perdido Pass is a short hop away with minimal No Wake Zone waiting.
FOR THE PET LOVER - Our house features a fenced in back yard. The house is pet friendly and most of the house is tile flooring. Our neighborhood is great for dog walking and Orange Beach’s Dog Park is only 1 mile away. Another great option is the Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trail. It's a wonderful paved trail that runs from Orange Beach to the Gulf State Park. It is pet friendly.
FOR THE FISHERMAN - Our family has been in the charter boat business in Orange Beach for almost 35 years. We have two boats and can accommodate your group from 4 persons to over 20.

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
I grew up walking along the dirt roads (now paved) of this neighborhood between my aunt and uncles house and our family's house. This place has lots of memories for me... catching tadpoles in the streams, seine netting for minnows, learning to drive a boat and fishing with my Dad. There is even a white knuckled ride along Wilson Blvd on the back of my cousin's motorcycle that I'll never forget! We bought this house in 2004 and have spent my family holidays here. Christmas at the beach is one of our longest family traditions and each year we travel down from Georgia to keep it alive for another year. Orange Beach is where we go to relax. For us, that may mean spending time cruising the bay in our boat, enjoying one of the many great restaurants the area has to offer, or just spending time with family.
