About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fairhope, AL, USA:
It's located only 23 miles from the Gulf Shores beaches and 15 minutes to the Tanger Outlet Stores in Foley with nearly 150 shops. Downtown Fairhope is only 15 minutes away.

Take advantage of the artificial reefs in Mobile Bay to catch a variety of fish including Trout, RedFish, TripleTail, Black Drum and Tarpon. We have an ice machine that produces 400lbs of ice a day for your coolers or boat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
