Great place to stay as we enjoyed fishing and wasn't very far from the beaches. I would recommend it to anyone.

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.

My husband, kids and I had a great stay in Alabama! House had plenty of room for all of us. 2 of our children slept in one of the bedrooms in house and other kids wanted to sleep on fold out futon in back room. There is also another bedroom with bunk beds underneath house. House had everything we needed. Kids loved using kayaks in canal behind house that opens up to bay. Short drive to cute downtowns of Fairhope and Foley. About 20 miles from ocean. We loved going to Gulf Shores. Owner very pleasant to work with & neighbors super friendly!

My family and I had a nice time! We enjoyed going out on the boat and the seclusion and peace of the area. There was plenty of space for our 6 adults and two kiddos! The kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed the screened in porch area downstairs. Thanks for a great stay!

Great place in a little slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation while visiting. The house is just right to give everyone room to spread out but also it had a great living space where we could gather. We got rained in due to tropical storm Cindy so our plans had to change a bit but we felt so at home the quality time together was worth it. We recommend Billie's seafood for fresh catch cooking. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. We will be back!!!
