Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was truly amazing, As we arrived we automatically felt bliss. The yard welcomed you down to an amazing cottage that had a simple yet elegant vibe.

But lets talk about the inside. The house has an energy that can't be explained. As I am a 6 day a week worker I'm not used to being so relaxed. There were many colors in the house put together in a majestic and royal way. Its small things, from the bath tub to the curtains. I would recommend this place to anyone no matter their taste in elegance. Its truly a paradise. And the location couldn't be any better. Not to mention the great BBQ that's within a stones throw. 5 stars isn't enough, this place is beyond any expectation I had. Thank you so much!

A Welcome Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This was a much needed retreat for my mother and daughter and me. Serenity Cottage was clean and artistically decorated. Our small dog loved the quaint yard that was landscaped in tiers. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and the beds were oh so comfortable. We especially loved the outdoor shower. The location to downtown shopping and restaurants was easy. A bowl of fruit, cheese crackers and wine from our host welcomed us when we arrived. Rob's hospitality was much appreciated. We loved Fairhope!

A perfect mix of relaxation, rejuvenation and scenic delight!

  • 4 of 5

I loved my stay at Serenity Cottage ... Rob was so very hospitable to me ... And dogs Peaver & Buzz ! This cottage is so peaceful with the great deck nestled in a wonderland of nature... Great place for morning coffee and evening glass of wine ! House is an easy walk to town, shops& restaurants, & very close to boats & wharf. Beds are cozy & decor is pleasing ... Yard was beautiful with flowers everywhere.... I felt very relaxed & wanted to stay and stay .... I miss Serenity Cottage & Fairhope so much!!

Wisconsin Snowbird

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is conveniently located 1/2 mile from downtown Fairhope & about 55 minutes from the beaches at Gulf Shores. The beds were super comfortable, plenty of towels, etc, and kitchen well stocked. The only 2 less than favorable comments I have are: 1) the tall head boards in both bedrooms block the windows so the house is a little on the dark side for my taste, and, 2) I would suggest to the Rob that he invest in a small dinette set for the room to the back deck. Otherwise, there is no comfortable place to sit for meals, playing cards & games. If you aren't planning of eating in, it's not a problem. We stayed the entire month of February and cooked "at home" often. Rob was very responsive when we lost the wi-fi connection. He had it restored within an hour. Kudos to him!

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in Fairhope and love, loved this cottage! It's a wonderful historic cottage but has all the modern conveniences. Decorations are eclectic and artsy, too, which we love. The front flower beds and landscaping are great to view from the porch. It's really close to the center of Fairhope and yet feels secluded. It's clean as a whistle and the beds are so comfortable! Rob went above and beyond to allow us to check in early and offered a late check out since it wasn't "taken" that day. We were welcomed with a wonderful personal welcoming card, nice bottle of wine, Brie cheese and crackers which we thoroughly enjoyed. There were also fresh oranges to use in the juicer. He also provided Kuerig coffee, bottled water and flavored water. I don't know if he does that every time, but that sure adds to the value you get from this owner and rarely receive from other vacation rentals. In the kitchen, everything you need or want is provided and it's all top quality. It's evident that Rob takes very good care of this cottage. We highly recommend staying here and we hope to return soon! Thank you Rob for allowing others to enjoy your place!!!!!

Quaint and Clean! Will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The Serenity Cottage was the perfect place for our weekend getaway. My husband and I were able to relax and it felt like home. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and the kindest card. The kitchen has anything and everything you could ever need, equipped with tea/local honey and coffee. The cottage was also very clean. We definitely plan on staying there again!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed in Fairhope during Oct. and had such a wonderful time! Your cottage was well equipped with everything we needed and then some!! We loved sitting on the porch in the cozy robes and drinking coffee in the mornings. The fruit and nuts were also a nice touch. We loved the eclectic decorations too. Having a yard was nice for our dog, and the fact that the house was not right on the road, allowed us to let him walk around the yard with us and not be on a leash. The cottage was convenient to everything which was another plus. We hope to vacation in Fairhope again, and will certainly stay in your cottage again, if it is available.
