About Chris and Donna Hyche
A lifetime Alabama resident, I grew up enjoying the Alabama Gulf Coast and enjoy sharing this beautiful area with others. As a sales professional in the industrial marketplace, I spend a lot of time behind the wheel and have found few places like Bon Secour. Donna has worked as an educator for over 30 years and the peace and quiet of this area is a welcome reprieve to hours in the classroom.
Chris and Donna Hyche purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Chris and Donna Hyche chose Gulf Shores
Growing up vacationing on the Alabama Gulf Coast, we discovered this area in the 1960's. My family purchased a cabin in the Bon Secour area in 1985 and have come to treasure the peace and quiet this community affords. Whether its sitting on the pier and watching the dolphins and pelicans at play or walking down to Billy's Seafood for steamed shrimp fresh off of the boat, it is safe to say there is no other place quiet like the Cottages at Bon Secour. While we hope to one day retire to this area, we are now content to share our secret with those who also appreciate this unique riverfront lifestyle.
What makes this Cottage unique
The proximity of the Gulf Coast beaches and excellent seafood serve as additional benefits to the peace and quiet of this area. When you have had all of the sun, sand and people you can handle, our place provides the ideal setting to relax and unwind.

Precious place to unplug
I remember the first thing I said (actually I squealed with delight) as we entered the cottage was "This is perfect! So homey!" The place wrapped itself around us like a cozy blanket. We were home and it felt good. Two recliners, a soft sofa, a king-size bed with a comfortable mattress, pillows, and sheets. Full-size kitchen appliances. Well-stocked kitchen. One-and-a-half bathrooms. Lots of bath linens. Laundry. Large-screen t.v.s, DVD-players, a library of DVDs and hard-cover books. And a pier directly across the street for fishing and chilling out along the Bon Secour River. - The cottage is located within walking distance to two seafood retailers. It is approximately 6 miles from Hwy 59 and places such as Lambert's, Tanger Outlet, etc. It is probably 10 miles from the Gulf. - We have visited the Gulf coast area almost yearly for the past 25 years. We've stayed in Ft. Morgan, Orange Beach, and Gulf Shores. The HyTide Cottage was our first experience staying more "inland". And we absolutely loved it!!! Highly recommend it!
This place is amazing. It has everything you would need. Completely relaxing and very quiet. We couldn’t have asked for a better place. Can’t wait to go back.

Great get away
Great spot to just relax away from the crowds. Cottage was very clean and had everthing that we needed. We especially enjoyed sitting in the porch swing on the dock, so peaceful. We will definitely be back.
Very lovely place to stay
The cottage was lovely, well kept, and looked just like the pictures! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back! Donna and Chris were very helpful and kind as well!
Bon Secour is a very Southern gothic, picturesque place, with huge water oak trees covered in Spanish moss, great blue herons, brown pelicans, ever present bottle-nosed dolphin pods and the potent smell of salty gulf waters everywhere. The local commercial fishermen that make their living from the Gulf are no less salty but also friendly. Other than the relatively small, family owned, seafood processing plants, Bon Secour is primarily made up of many rural neighborhoods, most of which enjoy beautiful vistas of the Bon Secour River and Bon Secour Bay. Brown Pelicans are everywhere and locals often see alligators from time to time, plying the waters of the estuarial system from the head waters of the Bon Secour River to the bay. One can see baby bottle-nosed dolphins playing near the mouth of the river at any time. In Bon Secour one can catch bass, bream, fresh-water catfish, then travel a few miles down river, to the bay and catch all manner of salt water fish, shrimp, and oysters in the same day
