Bonnie Dune was great.
We loved our stay!
Relaxing family getaway!
Our family really enjoyed the sandy beach backyard with our own dock! We had fun fishing, swimming, and kayaking in a peaceful environment. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed cooking and eating outside on the porch. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and decorated nicely. The location is close to everything, but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with a handy market on the corner. Both the owner and property manager were very helpful and did everything possible to make our stay a great one! (Shout out to the property manager for finding my son's AirPods and sending them to us!!!)
A PERFECT Week Away!
AMAZING location!! Right on the water, with a dock and our own private beach-like backyard! We rented kayaks from a local company and easily explored the area by water. Convenience store right down the street, and walk to the public beach access was short and direct -- very manageable for a 4 year-old and all the beach gear in tow. David was very communicative and incredibly helpful. We are SO happy we stayed at Bonnie Dunes and would absolutely go again! We even named an inflatable lobster float 'Bonnie' in honor of the awesome home. Would recommend in a heart beat! Also, VERY kid friendly!
We are so glad you were able to stay and that you had such an enjoyable time at Bonnie Dune! We look forward to having you back again in the future!

Gulf Shores boasts white sandy beaches accentuated by the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Although the beaches are fabulous, there are many other attractions and activities in the area.
Historic Fort Morgan is only a 30 minute drive away and boasts a great museum and lots of historic buildings. You can also take the ferry over to Dauphin Island and check out Fort Gaines which has live displays with volunteers in period costume. The blacksmith is very interesting.
Throughout the year, the US Navy "Blue Angels" are very active up and down the coast as they fly from their home station in Pensacola to training areas over Fort Morgan. We often see them pass right overhead in formation. It's almost like an impromptu airshow.
Gulf Shores has festivals throughout the year that celebrate history, music, food and the arts. Every May, Gulf Shores hosts the Hangout Beach Music & Arts Festival, which features more than 60 bands performing on four stages. The profits from this event benefit coastal protection and restoration programs. In October, the four-day National Shrimp Festival brings together more than 300 vendors selling arts and crafts and has two music stages and a Children’s Activity Village. Guests can enjoy plenty of shrimp and other seafood dishes.
Families and Children:
In addition to the parks that you can explore as a family, Gulf Shores has several attractions that are popular with children. Pirate's Island Adventure Golf has two 18-hole miniature golf courses with waterfalls, caves and a pirate ship. The Track Family Recreation Center consists of a video arcade, bumper cars and boats, miniature golf and bungee jumping. Its Kids Country section contains rides for small children: kiddie carts, spin tops, swings, a carousel and the Rio Grande Train.
State parks and nature preserves in Gulf Shores feature trails and education programs about local wildlife and conservation. The city also offers saltwater and freshwater fishing opportunities. The 7,000-acre Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge includes beaches, sand dunes, swamps and fresh and saltwater marshes. The park is home to red foxes, armadillos, endangered sea turtles, seven hummingbird species and more than 370 migratory bird species. It also has a picnic area. Gulf Shores Yacht Club & Marina provides chartered fishing trips on the Gulf, along with boat slips, bait shops and a restaurant.
Arts and History:
Gulf Shores features historic sites and museums that showcase the fine arts. Fort Morgan played an important role in four wars: the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II. The fort offers living history programs that interpret these wars, as well as an event commemorating the 1864 Battle of Mobile Bay. Tino’s Fine Art & Frames showcases work by local artists, including mosaics, pottery and prints.
Sports and Recreation:
The City of Gulf Shores operates parks with tennis courts, picnic areas, indoor pools, skate parks and soccer fields. The city has more than 10 golf courses available for public use. The 12-acre Meyer Park in downtown Gulf Shores has playground equipment, a baseball diamond and horseshoe pits. Three miles from the coast, the 870-acre Craft Farms Golf Resort has two 18-hole Arnold Palmer golf courses with rolling fairways surrounded by lakes. Area resorts provide stay-and-play packages.
OWA!! - Means "Big Water" in the Muskogee Creek language. It is a new (2016) regional attraction in the neighboring city of Foley, AL. It is made up of an amusement park, a "Downtown" shopping and dining area, amphitheater, and sports complex! A large waterpark is rumored to be coming in 2020! OWA is just a 15-min drive from Bonnie Dune.

About David Roberts
We love to travel and have lived in many areas of the US from DC to Seattle. We have 5 children aged from 12 to 31. Currently, we live in the Rocky Mountain region and although it is beautiful we often long for the warm weather and ocean. Our youngest daughter enjoys being here so much it is rejuvenating for us to watch her frolic in the water, waves and sand. We have always loved hosting friends, family, our kid's friends, and often new friends we only just met. There is always someone coming or going at our current home so we are very happy to have you as a guest at Bonnie Dune!
David Roberts purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why David Roberts chose Gulf Shores
With retirement looming on the horizon, we became more and more interested in spending time enjoying the beach so we started looking for the "ideal" location. We have traveled to some of the greatest beaches in the world including Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and both coasts of the US. In our opinion, Gulf Shores beaches rival them all. The clean, white sand and sparkling clear water are outstanding; we felt at home the day we drove into town. It was love at first sight when we walked into this little cottage on Little Lagoon. It was just right for us. The location could not be better, close to the beach, yet on the water allowing the "best of both worlds". It is quiet and peaceful, yet there is lots of activity nearby. You can relax and do nothing, or be as active as you want. The house is great for quiet time alone but also is perfect for socializing with friends and family.
What makes this Cottage unique
This house definitely has unique benefits. The biggest one is the location. The water view is great but knowing you have direct access to enjoy the water takes the experience to a whole new level! The Lagoon offers almost every water activity possible, from sailing to fishing and jet skiing to paddle boarding. Kayak in the early morning and then head to the beach after breakfast. Several guests have commented how much they appreciate the flexibility of enjoying the sandy back yard and lagoon on days when the beach may be windy or stormy. It is very convenient to not have to scramble off the beach in case of a sudden thunderstorm. The neighborhood is quiet and there is no thru-traffic. The neighbors are very friendly and there is a strong sense of community. There is so much within walking distance making shopping, restaurants, rentals, entertainment and of course the beach, all very convenient. Also, West Beach Blvd is very accessible for those times you want to travel by car.
