About Colleen

My husband and I have a combined total of 5 children. We own and operated a mechanical contracting business in our hometown, where we were born and raised. We love to travel, fish and spend times with our friends and family.

Colleen purchased this house in 2016

Why Colleen chose Fairhope

We have been traveling to the Fairhope area for over 8 years and fell in love with the charm, slow pace and friendly locals. We decided, long ago, that this would be the ideal place to retire. Although retirement is years away, we just couldn't pass up this beautiful home. It offered us the water access to a multitude of rivers and bays for boating and fishing.

What makes this house unique

We have rented a lot of vacation homes throughout the years and have tried to offer our guest all the added convincences that we have appreciated. A fully stocked kitchen, just like I have at home makes preparing meals pleasant. Plenty of linens and pillows to make you comfortable. A front load washer and dryer to make laundry quicker and allowing more clothes to be washed at one time. Setting for 10 in the kitchen and an additional table for four on the porch gives plenty of room for dining. Two Kayaks, paddles and adjustable life vest, to accommodate x-small to XL adult sizes, are available for your enjoyment. Did someone say crabbing! We love to crap and have provided 2 nets, stock pot for cooking and instructions on cleaning. Help yourself to the books and movies available for those lazy days.

Lovely home-Great for snowbirds!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Colleen's house the last 2 winters, and would stay again, but we have decided it's time to stop snowbirding. The house is so homey. The beachy decor is beautiful and the kitchen is very well equipped. We loved the sunroom and our dog enjoyed the fenced back yard. Colleen is so easy to work with and responds quickly.

Clean, comfortable, and beautiful Old South area

  • 4 of 5

This home was super clean upon our arrival and the interior colors and decor were tastefully done. We really appreciated the quality of the towels and bed linens as opposed to the cheap stuff in most rentals. The MBR bed was really comfortable and the kitchen was fabulous! We loved being able to take our dogs, too. We brought a "doggie gate" to block off the front porch so they wouldn't wander off. The landscaping around the home is really nice, too. The owners have provided top-of-the-line appliances and pretty much everything you need! I would suggest that they upgrade their TV package to include the Golf Channel and the SEC network to make hubbies happy. We brought our boat and Colleen was helpful by providing information about nearby boat launches. We used the Week's Bay launch on 98 and it was great! Our 23' boat, however, was just about too big to fit in the boat house on this property, though. The area was so nice and quiet, yet close enough to some fabulous restaurants. For off-shore fishing, however, it's a loooooong way to the gulf! Great place for someone who strictly likes bay fishing. Really nice next-door neighbor, too, who knows his fishing and boating! Many thanks to Colleen for allowing us to rent for a few nights.

Beautiful home! Very clean and very updated.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the home as well as the convenience of the boat dock and lift. I will probably never get my husband to stay at another location without a boat lift now!

Amenities in the house were great. Very clean and very updated. The only suggestion we would make is to make sure the grass is cut. The yard was still well kept however the neighbor's dog left a few presents in the yard which were difficult to see in the higher grass.

The name fits the home! Would definitely stay here again!
