ReelLiving has been a family home since it was built. We are a family of 4 and live in Atlanta, GA. Some of my family lives in Fairhope and we've enjoyed the area since the late 1970's.

Fantastic Fish Camp

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. This is the second time we've stayed here for the week of Mardi Gras. Big fun and convenient to Fairhope, Mobile and Gulf Shores.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This place was surprisingly roomy for only having 2 bedrooms. You could really sleep a lot more people. We had everything we needed for our 3 night stay and we even held our family Christmas here. There was plenty of room for the whole family, and everything we needed was already in the kitchen.

Niceville, Florida

Had a wonderful 3 nights. Property served us well. Great location, super neighbors, & friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and pictures represent well. Check in and check out easy. Water in canal was very low this time of year and unable to take advantage of kayaking. Lack of bathroom downstairs made the bunk room less desirable to stay in so I slept on couch upstairs. We had 6 guest. Beds comfortable. Cooked dinner and found kitchen well stocked. TV had dish and limited channels but we managed to get both the Ga game and the Bama game so we were happy. Internet/wifi very spotty. Could not keep a connection for very long. But truly didn’t bother me as I was there to spend time with family. Great location. Fairhope was a lot of fun. Fort Morgan interesting. Charles Phillip Antiques truly amazing. And Jesse’s restuarant in Magnolia Springs was the bomb. All meals superb. Would definitely stay again if in the area. Thank you Rick.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome time while staying in Fairhope. The house was in a very peaceful location. The king bed in master bedroom although older, was very comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit on the dock as well as catching some blue crabs. Very spacious kitchen in which we cooked all of our meals; plenty of kitchen utensils, pans, plates, etc. We were disappointed that the ice maker did not work but other than that, we loved it here. Was glad to have the washer and dryer for use.

Extremely Inviting Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family. Clean, quiet, peaceful, and total relaxation. This property provided plenty of space for the entire family. Our favorite part of the house was the screened-in patio downstairs. We would gather there every afternoon! I highly recommend this place and if you don't hang out with the neighbors at some point during your stay, you'd really miss out. They were extremely welcoming and fun to talk to. The children enjoyed fishing off of the pier and crabbing in our own backyard. Can't wait to visit again.
