May just be the best vacation I have ever had!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

I couldn't have imagined a more perfect location.

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.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Pattie's Cottage is a dream, from the peaceful secluded location, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets to the amazing attention to every detail in the home! My husband and I along with our two children enjoyed every minute of our stay and only wish we had stayed longer. The owner is so gracious, friendly and accommodating. We spent hours relaxing on the screened in porch enjoying books, puzzles and games. It felt so great to disconnect from our busy lives and just be together. The home is beautiful, comfortable, outfitted with everything you need to stay put and enjoy cooking and creating memories. The towels are amazing!! I went home and ordered some for our personal home. Can't wait to go back next year! Thank you for everything Gannt!

Aunt Patty's Got the Right Idea!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in the most unique setting. Being next door to a protected area means so much. One of the biggest benefits is the night sky away from city light interference. The screened in porch is heavenly. The cottage itself is nicely updated and includes high end bath towels and bed linens. The property was exactly as described and when we had need of the caretakers they were spot on. The owner was very nice and generous as well. We just loved our time here.
