We stayed at Aunt Patties cottage for the week of Nov. 11. It was incredible! This cottage is so gorgeous. Looks like it should be in a magazine. Decorated beautifully! The location is unbelievable. There are only a few homes in the enclave. It is surrounded by a wildlife refuge so you have no homes for about 1 1/2 miles to the East and the West. THAT situation exists NOWHERE along the AL coast which makes this an even more desirable place. Also, you will see what Gulf Shores used to look like before they ruined it by bulldozing every giant sand dune we used to have! The sand dunes in the refuge look like they are easily 20 plus feet high. Another plus is no crowds! Very few people there so an added bonus! We did not use heat or air conditioning. We opened the doors and let the beach air in and fell asleep to the waves crashing on the shore. You won’t get that in the majority of places in Gulf Shores. Sheer heaven! The cottage is also amply stocked with everything you need. Keurig too! Gantt is the sweetest, nicest owner you will ever have the pleasure of dealing with! Even the employees at the rental company love him! CAVEAT: If you want this amazing beach cottage, you will need to book almost a year in advance! If you look right now (Nov. 29) there are a couple of weeks available in Aug. Book them immediately! I promise you will LOVE IT! Thanks for doing an awesome job Gantt!

Beautiful cottage! The deck and screened porch are wonderful and so close to the water! We arrived during Hurricane Nate and the owner went above and beyond making sure we were safe and all was well at the cottage. He even gave us his personal cell number. Already booked for next year!!!

From the moment we arrived, I felt like I had entered

a movie set! The cottage is so tasteful and

impeccable! The decor is beautiful, the setting

enchanting... the sound of the ocean, ahhhh!

I could have stayed forever...;). I keep thinking

of how and when I can return!

Aunt Patty's is a lovely cottage in the best location. A screened and shuttered porch allows you to comfortably experience all the Gulf has to offer. I feel fortunate to have found it!

Beautifully decorated, charming, comfortable cottage in a fairly secluded location. Great for a couple or a family of beach and nature lovers.
