Golf Cart option available for guests at $175 flat fee for your entire stay.

The terrific Sassy Bass Restaurant, Grocery and Beverage Store are close by so you don't need to travel far for anything!!

Pelican Landing is all about relaxation...a quiet, laid back, hassle free getaway yet still close to everything Gulf Shores/Orange Beach has to offer.

WONDERFUL week we spent at Pelican Landing beach cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of 7/22-7/29 in this cottage and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. My husband and I wanted to spend a relaxing week at the beach with very little time in the traffic and sea of people in Gulf Shores. This place is surrounded by a nature reserve, so you have plenty of beautiful wildlife scenery and sounds. There are other cottages in the complex, so you don't feel totally alone, but we didn't feel like we were right on top of other people either. The house is decorated beautifully; you can tell the owner put a lot of work into making this a perfect home-away-from-home. Everything we needed was available - there were even spices in the cabinet for us to use. We went to WM and bought food, and we used the grill most nights. The screened-in porch is PERFECT. It backs up directly to the nature reserve, so it's very private. We spent most mornings and evenings out there, either watching TV or just listening to the frogs and having a drink. With the fan on, it wasn't too hot. There are a lot of flying biting bugs in the evening, so being in the screened in porch was the perfect way to enjoy outdoors without getting eaten up! The house was very clean, beds were comfortable, and many extras we didn't know about (beach chairs, umbrellas, extra bedding, etc). The golf cart is a great way to get to the beach; we were able to load everything we needed on it and it's so easy to get to the beach on the golf cart path (maybe a 5 minute drive to the beach). We loved the outdoor shower, so easy to wash the sand off everything, and my daughter thought it was great to "shower" outside! Sandra is just wonderful to work with; she's available and answers questions very quickly. We didn't have any problems while we were there, but she's left a guest book that will answer most any question, and I feel sure that if we had needed her during our stay, she would have done anything to help us. We hope to return next year, and are definitely booking this cottage if we do! Loved it!

Owners were great. Guest book and owner was really helpful with recommendations for activities and restaurants. We have 3 kids ages 6 to 17 and all three thought this was an awesome stay. Little ones especially enjoyed the loft beds.

It was an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage the moment we walked through the door. The decor was very nice, it was well stocked and the beds are very comfortable. The screened in porch was my absolute favorite spot any time of the day! If you are looking for somewhere out of the hustle and bustle this is the place. The beach wasn't far from the cottage. The binder the owner put together was very helpful also. If we had any questions, Sandra was available to ask her. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Exactly as advertised and so much more!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was lovely and just as described. The owners did a great job of equipping it so needs were minimal. When we encountered a minor problem, the owners were incredibly responsive. I would highly recommend spending the extra money to rent the golf cart. It was so handy. The beach is close, but having the golf cart made it so easy to get there and haul all the beach stuff with you - and no sand in your car! Plenty of room and the owners thought of everything, there were games, cards, and movies for our family to enjoy. There's even a Crock-Pot so you can come back from the beach with dinner ready to go! Far enough away from the touristy areas to relax and enjoy quiet time, but not too far to drive for plenty of family activities. My family had the best time here and the kids are already asking when we can come back!
