About Alice Walker

Alice Walker purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Alice Walker chose Seacrest Beach
We have been bringing our family down to this part of the beach for 35+ years and when we looked at this house, just down 30A from a family place, we fell in love with it. We wanted to be able to share it with family, friends, and new friends that we haven't met yet!
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the large den and dining rooms with windows and doors letting in lots of sunshine, the spiral staircase, the front porch, and the pool. It's a great location, convenient to the beach, to Rosemary, Alys Beach and Seaside.

Lovely Family Home
We really enjoyed being together at the beach for spring break! Great proximity to the beach plus the pool was awesome!
Overall High Cotton is a family friendly place to stay close to the beach. The upstairs common area (den and dining room) is spacious. The kitchen, also upstairs, is small. The two floors are accessed by a tight spiral staircase. The three bedrooms are all located downstairs off a small, tight hallway. The downstairs shared bath is fairly dingy and musty and the towels in that bathroom had a sour smell when wet. I would suggest replacing the older towels and/or not storing them in the damp bathroom.
Great family house! We will be back.
House was clean and inviting. Very close to the beach. Kid friendly.
Very quiet and good beach access - felt like "home away from home" !!
Very impressed with the directions that Alice gave us. As first time staying a month the information we received was excellent! Travel directions, House information, What to do and see, What to bring. Alice followed up with a phone call to see if everything was ok (very personable). Even though we didn't use the pool it was nice to relax in that area. The house had a personal touch with the decorating. Anyone renting would not be disappointed. Thank you - we will cherish all the memories we made at "High Cotton"

We were so happy to have "snowbirds" stay at our home for a few weeks!
This house was in a great location to the beach. Just a very short walk. It was awesome to have a private pool right out back. The living room is bright and well decorated. Those were the great things about the house. If you are a single family with kids the bedroom setup will work well. The master bed room is great. The other two rooms are very small and the beds are not comfortable. The downstairs over all is just very dark and cramped. The spiral staircase is cool at first but bothersome by the end of the week. The kitchen is very small. As in, the dishwasher almost hits the opposite side of the kitchen when open. There were some housekeeping issues that were little and easily overlooked but there were more than one. The outside area could use some TLC (deck is splintering) and the pool area is a mix of different pieces of furniture. Functional, just not eye appealing. We didn't HATE the house, but there was never a time that we loved it.
We loved High Cotton. With early risers and late sleepers in our family, having bedrooms on separate floor than living room and kitchen worked perfectly. Pool is private and so convenient! Beach is so easy to access and Alice was wonderful to work with!
