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

PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT BY WIRE TRANSFER.

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:
We had a great experience in this little 's location was perfect not too far from the beach yet private and quite. Our three granddaughters enjoyed the family time in this informal setting. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and if we decide to vacation here again we will definitely concider this our destination. our thanks to the staff for keeping this little jewel in such great shape. If we had an issue it would have been the roughness of the deck with a few random splinters but that was an easy fix with flip flops. Weathered wood is to be expected at the beach. we had a great time at the shops that were within easy driving distance such as Tangers Mall and Souvinier City as well as the great restrants. We spent time in the heat of the day at these places and spent the day at The Track riding go-carts.We relaxed at the cabin in the evening or went crab hunting on the beach after dark,great fun for the kiddos. Thanks Crabby Daddy for a great time,

Reviewer Comments:
We loved this little place. It's perfect for those that want to avoid crowds and are vacationing on a budget. We had the time of our lives. We had no real complaints, except that the place could use a "spring cleaning". The top of the stove (where the nobs are) was greasy and dirty. Some of the lamps/decorations/etc could use a good dusting. It would be nice if a new BBQ was purchased. Besides that, it was pretty perfect. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with anything you might need. Our biggest advice for those new to Gulf Shores? Be ready for crowds and a wait for dinner. Our favorite meal, by far, was at The Steamer. The Hangout is very family friendly between 7-9. Our 15 year old and 9 year old loved it. We will definitely be back next year.
