Best vacation ever!!!
We stayed at Aunt Patties the second week in April, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The location was amazing, practically private beach access, with just a few fishermen throughout the day. And the screened in porch, let me tell you, we basically lived out there the whole time when not down by the water. There is something so soothing about the constant sound of waves in the background. We will definitely be back sometime soon I hope!
The most charming cottage on the beach!!
We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return! Everything was perfect from the location to the crisp white linens and Bvlgari toiletries! Our host was so attentive and gave us the best tips to enjoy the house, even sharing his observation of the most lovely way to light the house at night, dimmers on every light switch, it was beautiful. The screened deck was our favorite spot with spectacular ocean views (sitting right on the beach)! The sound from the surf lulling you to sleep was priceless. We will never forget this trip, thank you Gantt.
This was the perfect getaway for my family of three. We had the most amazing time enjoying the beautiful cottage and pristine beach. Gantt was an amazing host and went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect stay. Could not ask for a more beautiful space and gracious host. Thank you!
AMAZING BEACH HOME!
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!!!
May just be the best vacation I have ever had!!
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!
