Great property and hospitality.
The pictures don’t do it justice!
Everything was perfect from the beginning. Patti was so helpful answering all of our questions prior to our visit.
The house is huge and slept 8 adults and 2 toddlers perfectly-the master has 2 huge walk-in closets that have air vents so we used one of them as a room for my 2 year old :)
The kitchen was well equipped and had everything that we needed.
We enjoyed sunsets on the back patio and evenings on the dock-such a relaxing time and we we definitely be back!
This beautiful house is perfect for a reunion of college friends for a relaxing weekend.
I am happy to hear that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at “While Away.” Hope to accommodate you all in the future.
A Christmas to remember at While Away!
Awesome time during the Christmas Holidays. Everything was amazing and looking forward to returning for another visit if 2018.

This property is located on Weeks Bay in southern Baldwin County. The property grants you access to 300 ft. of water with endless possibilities which include fishing and various water sport activities Renters are welcome to bring a boat (kayak, jet ski, paddleboard, canoe, etc.). There is a boat launch, Nolte Creek, located 2.5 miles east of the home.
When facing Weeks Bay from the property, one can navigate south to access Mobile Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Intracoastal Canal. A boat ride to the famous Lulu's Restaurant, owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister, is approximately a 30 - 40 minute ride.
For less adventurous boaters, one can travel north from the dock and reach Fish River for lunch at Big Daddy's, owned by a local, or take a dive in the spring fed "Cold Hole" in Magnolia River. There are endless opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, or paddleboarding. To the west, the lovely bay villa is near historical Fairhope with its adorable boutique shops and wonderful restaurants. A short drive east, one will find Foley's outlet mall. When heading south, the glistening, sugar white beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is definitely a sight to experience and take the time to enjoy the Gulf Coast delicious seafood. After a busy day of visiting the surrounding areas or after a long day of sun and fun on the water, be sure and kick back on the villa's screened porch and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.!
