About Martha Howard
A native of Mobile, Alabama I grew up on two shores spending many days as a child on Pleasure Island and then traveling back and forth on summer days and weekends as a teen and young adult to bask in the sun on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores. In 1990 I bought my home on Little Lagoon where I raised my family while teaching high school in the area.
Now after retiring from nearly 30 years in education I enjoy inviting others to share the pleasures of the island and the Ft. Morgan peninsula.
I own this home jointly with my daughter Marguerite who is a Navy search and rescue helocopter pilot. While she and her husband can not be here to help with the management she always enjoys coming home for a stay in her grandmother's house.
This house is one of several I rent to guests from around the world. Some I own and some belong to friends and neighbors.
I have made many friends and always enjoy making new ones. It is my pleasure to see others enjoy a relaxing vacation in a home that is just right for them.
Martha Howard purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Martha Howard chose Gulf Shores
This property is special to me because it was my mother's home. All of her life she dreamed of living on the water and at 78 she designed and built this bayfront home. She enjoyed spending the last five years of her life quilting in the front room where she had a beautiful view of Mobile Bay and lots of light from the many windows. She loved sharing her home with others and always enjoyed visitors. I know she would be happy that guests come from all over the world to sit on her front porch and watch the dolphins play. I take pride in the continued care of my mother's home.
