Shangri--Log. Gorgeous log home on the bay. The views during the day and night are unbelievable. The home is beautifully decorated with open beam soaring ceilings. Shangri Log's white sandy beach is private and large. One of the last natural beaches on the Bay.

This home is perfect for Families,Snow Birds or couple reunions,we even have small weddings on our beach. Each bedroom has its own private bath.

The kitchen is equipped with GE Monogram stainless appliances. It is a cooks' delight with gas cooktop/griddle/grill,wine/beverage cooler, separate ice maker ,double refrigerator.Granite counter tops and travertine floors. The floors in all bedrooms and living areas are Brazilian cherry. Each bedroom features its own bath. The master bath has a double whirlpool tub, multiple shower heads 2+person shower, and marble floors.2000 square feet of decks overlooking the bay with stainless gas grill and outdoor dining table and chairs. This home has over 4200 square feet.

The location of this home is at the point end of County Rd. 1. We are on Mobile Bay with views of Weeks Bay and Bon Secour Bay. The State Boat launch is near the property. We have a 350ft private covered pier with boat/swim platform and a fish/crab cleaning sink. The pier deck is covered at the end and is large enough to have a large party and safe enough for the kids with benches and railings. We also have a nice private sandy beach,and a double hammock on the deck overlooking the bays. This property will accommodate family reunions.

We are 10 minutes away from the world famous Grand Hotel and 15min..from downtown Fairhope. The Tanger Outlet Mall is 20 minutes away and Gulf Shores is 35 minutes away. Some of the best seafood and shopping is so close,but Shangri-Log is so quiet and peaceful. Walking/running/bike riding for those who enjoy a little exercise. Our roadway is used for several bike races throughout the year so it is perfect for these activities. Our front porch has rocking chairs to watch the sunrise. We have kids swings under the house.We enjoy sitting on the beach porch and watching all the birds(blue heron,brown pelican,owls,sea gulls,osprey,etc.)Great fishing and crabbing or bring your small boat or jet skis and dock at the end of the pier. Have you ever been floundering, our water and bay is perfect. A little tidbit: We have Jubilee's in Fairhope/Point Clear, the only other place for this phenomenon is in Japan! The artwork in Shangri-Log is from Dawn Manning Jardet (owner)a locally acclaimed artist. Owners are Licensed Real Estate Agents in the State of Alabama.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS SUNSET!!!!!!!!!

We have the most fabulous sunset and sunrise views.

About Owner/Manager

Dawn and I always dreamed of having a place on the bay. We bought this place and thought, what can we name it. Shangri-La(Shangri-Log) is a mystical place that words can't describe. The views of 3 different bays and breezes from the bay and gulf are unbelievable. Our white sandy beach and location at the point of the bays make this place special. The location is so close to quaint downtown Fairhope with shops and restaurants and Gulf Shores with all the tourist things to do.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner/Manager chose Magnolia Springs

This location is at the point of 3 bays. Our home is the last home and we can watch the boats coming in and out of Big Mouth. Big Mouth is the name locals call the location where 2 of the bays meet.

What makes this house unique

When you walk into Shangri-Log you will notice all the quality workmanship of this beautiful log home(cabinet maker built this home). The chefs kitchen with GE Monogram appliance, gorgeous Brazilian cherry,travertine and Italian marble floors,the latest TV surround sound system. The Master suite and bath has a double whirlpool tub and 2+ person shower with multiple shower heads. We have a 9' regulation pool table.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes sorry for the stairs, but when you're on the bay the houses have to be up in the air.(hurricanes you know) Maybe one day we can put an elevator in.Thanks for letting me know about the leaky plumbing issue,plumber is there today..Please come again and enjoy our Shangri-Log

We rented this for 5 days for my sister and her family. We really enjoyed it especially the view and the pool table. The only downside was that the fire alarm was set off by the dryer the one night and ended up with fire trucks out about 10pm. This was a real inconvenience to our vacation and I guess it has happened to another family. My brother in law thought it had something to do with something behind the dryer. We just didn't do anymore laundry while we were there except to start the 1st load of linens when we checked out.

This home comfortably sleeps 14, has a beautiful view, huge peer and great, clean little beach! We are really glad we chose this location for our rental!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Since the house is a log home we have a very sensitive system. After talking with the fire dept we determined it to be a neighbors leaf fire. Please come again.

Perfect Venue for our big family

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family now consists of 14 people in 4 households (2 oldsters and our three grown children, their spouses, and two children each household). It's really hard to find a good place to get everybody under one roof in a place that's fairly equidistant for all and in a great location. Shangri-log provided all that and more. We gathered Jan. 1-4, 2015 and watched bowl games, played golf, had cocktails at the Grand Hotel, shot pool, devoured TWO Beef Wellingtons prepared in the gourmet kitchen, crabbed and laid in the hammock on the pier, etc., etc. You get the picture. We could not have been more pleased. Donnie could not have been more accommodating and responsive. Damage deposit was promptly refunded. We definitely plan to come back. This place is ideal for us.

You should do business with this company.

This house was immaculate when we arrived.

It was huge - an incredible arrangement of 5 bedrooms that slept 14!!!!!

Perfect for entertaining while providing privacy if you wished.

Cant say enough about the layout and the gracious management.

Will stay again soon.

Wedding Weekend Stay for Family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Shangri Log! The house is naturally scented from the cedar log construction. The view of the water is spectacular. All gas house appliances, grill, and fireplace makes for a cozy stay. The house is big inside, furnished to comfort, and the bedrooms are clean, comfy, and each bathroom is well appreciated with a big crowd of guests. Our family of guests loved the house. One is an interior decorator, she said it was such a homey, lovely place to stay. Loved the large deck out back, and the sunrise and sunset was beautiful. Plenty of towels for everyone, and the showers were hot and soothing. We highly recommend for any family gathering, holiday, or gathering. Quaint Fairhope and Daphne, as well as Foley so close by for shopping, visiting, and relaxing in a great restaurant. Thyme. On the Bay., Tamaras, Gambinos, Painini Petes are some great choices to dine out. The management is so easy to work with. You will be happy you stayed at Shangrilog!

Big Bang for the Buck!

  • 5 of 5

My family walked in, and said OMG!! :) It's a very spacious and impressive log home indeed, with great water views and a massive deck. Family members of all ages loved the private boat dock, pier, and beach. We also liked the country feel with very low traffic, yet the home is less than 15 minutes from all major grocery stores, restaurants, etc. in the lovely town of Fairhope--which is also worth a visit. We didn't have to spend any of our vacation time fighting traffic, lines, or crowds, which we consider a WINNER! Inside the home, we loved the expansive great room, pool table, well-equipped kitchen, and the privacy of the bedrooms. We highly recommend this property, and plan to return ourselves.
