CRABBY DADDY! CUTE 2 BD BEACH COTTAGE

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + sleeper sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6) West Beach, Little Lagoon

Come to the Gulf coast and experience the best of beach and lagoon living in a cute creole cottage by the sea. If you are looking for an affordable vacation in Gulf Shores, but don't want to give up charming & clean, Crabby Daddy just may be the spot for you.

Rolf's Crabby Daddy is located in the quiet part of West Beach, about 4 miles west of Hwy 59. It is a wonderful, peaceful place to relax, but you are still just minutes from restaurants, shops and attractions. This area of Gulf Shores Alabama has just 2 rows of houses, one on the beach, one on Little Lagoon.

Crabby Daddy can be rented with the beachfront 4 bedroom house Rolf's Retreat /100280), or on its own. Both houses have beach access at Rolf's Retreat or lagoon access at Crabby Daddy.

Both rent by the week, Sunday to Sunday so you miss the traffic jam in and out of town during busy weeks.

Crabby Daddy still has it authentic beach charm with its weathered cedar siding, and wraparound deck, but the inside has a new kitchen, bath and laundry and bright colors that just make you smile.

There a two bedrooms, the first with a queen bed, the second with a pair of twins. Each bedroom has a TV in case you would like to retire to your own space.

The living room has plenty of comfortable seating for everyone and a new flat-screen TV.

The eat-in kitchen has a table for 6 and is beautifully stocked. From the kitchen window and glass door you'll have a great view of Little Lagoon.

In the hall you'll find a stacked washer & dryer, right next to the bathroom, for your convenience.

While our sugar-white beach is just across the 2 lane street, we think Little Lagoon is just as wonderful. You can fish for flounder, speckled trout, or blue crabs, or bring or rent a pontoon boat or kayaks. There is a public boat launch on the north side of the lagoon so you can bring your bass boat and leave it in the water behind the house during your stay. (We do have limited parking, and limited room for a boat trailer but know a lot where you can park a trailer). The lagoon also offers gentle lapping water that is great for small children who might not feel confident in the Gulf.

Gulf Shores is a very family-friendly town. There are two local restaurants that have large outdoor sand play areas for children along with live music and more. Lulu's is on the Intercoastal Waterway, just 2 miles north of the beach. Lulu is Lucy Buffett, Jimmy Buffett's sister, and we think her place is a must-do while you are here. The Hangout is at the main public beach. There are two historic forts (Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines), the Mobile Bay Ferry to Dauphin Island, the National Naval Air Museum nearly at the Pensacola Naval Air Station (home of the Blue Angels who you just might see practicing) and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Our zoo was the subject of the Animal Planet television series The Little Zoo That Could and is the only zoo in the country with all 4 colors of tigers. We also have go-carts, putt-putt and a water park if you get tired of sand and sun.

We hope you'll give Crabby Daddy a try. It is an affordable and comfortable place to relax with your family or friends in Gulf Shores.

For years we had loved this cute, original cottage across from Rolf's Retreat. When it finally came on the market, we had to have it! It is great for just us, or with Rolf's Retreat when we need more room for our growing family of grandchildren.

Charming original cottage. Nothing fancy, it feels like the trips to the beach we grew up taking. And Little Lagoon is wonderful for fishing and crabbing, and exploring by small boat.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I celebrated his birthday there for a week. This adorable, colorful house is just as advertised: clean, bright, perfect for two people. The microwave wasn't working when we first arrived. One phone call and about 15 minutes later, and it was fixed. We enjoyed the wrap-around deck almost as much as the beach and lagoon. A day trip to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola was even more fun because we could ALSO watch their aircraft from our own deck as they flew the coastline. The owners were kind enough to have lights on and temperature just right for our late-evening arrival. Just the best experience so far. We hope others who stay care for it as lovingly as we did, so that we and they can go back for many years to come. Absolutely loved it.

Reviewer Comments:
We had a fantastic time here! Small house sandwiched between the lagoon and the gulf on a not so busy stretch of the beach. 4 miles from the T. Very quiet and just what we were looking for in a vacation spot. I hate the crowded condos. We had most of the beach to ourselves.
