Overview

Gulf Shores Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4 (private)

Shady Oaks Cottage is conveniently located five miles down Ft Morgan Rd. in beautiful Gulf Shores. Situated under old oaks the property offers a shady patio to relax on and a private beach on Little Lagoon, an inland lake fed from the Gulf. The shallow waters are the perfect place to swim, fish, kayak, and play. Great for families with young children! Parents can relax on the private beach while the kids play in the shallow, calm waters of the lagoon. Boat launch available.

Perfect for snowbirds: If you are thinking of wintering in Gulf Shores, this cottage is the ideal place. Built on ground level, it is easy to access for any who have problems climbing steps. The living/dining area sports picture windows for a glorious view of the lagoon. Bedrooms on either side of the house offer lots of privacy. The compact kitchen is well stocked.

Just up the road, the City of Gulf Shores has a fantastic recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, indoor track, ping pong and pool tables, water aerobics, yoga and other fitness classes. In the winter the city's Special Events Department sponsors an outstanding series of performances.

Golfer's Paradise: Who could ask for more than waterfront and a top of the line golf course! The Peninsula Golf Club is located just across the street. It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 10 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.

Shop til you drop: Shop over 120 brand name outlets on Hwy 59 in Foley!! Brooks Brothers, Gap, Polo, Ann Taylor and more draw shoppers from miles around. From housewares, to clothing, to home furnishing, there is something for everyone at the Tanger Outlet mall just 10 miles north in Foley.

Little Lagoon cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for what we were looking for. It was well maintained, convenient to everything and had a great back yard right on the water. I would highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone looking for relaxation.

A kayakers haven!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location and layout for a couple of kayakers traveling with two dogs. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped, and decorated in a "shabby beach" decor. Large oak trees shelter the property. The property has a wonderful yard and outdoor entertaining areas. We left our kayaks on the "beach" next to the Lagoon. The Lagoon is shallow and safe for play. We paddled out in the evening to enjoy the sunset and could hear the waves on the Gulf beach. Peaceful vacation spot.

Loved the cottage and Gulf Shores!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting from Home Away. It was a very positive experience. Anne & Frank (the owners) are wonderful. They quickly addressed any issues we had. They are so nice and friendly! Since it was our first time to Gulf Shores, they gave us good ideas for things to do, places to eat, etc. The cottage was nicely decorated and fully stocked with everything we needed. The beds were comfy and we loved the jetted tub. The location right on the lagoon was ideal. Close to both Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan. The walking path across the street was a great place to walk our two little dogs. The small fenced in area in the side yard was convenient to let the dogs outside when we weren't going for a walk. It was so good to find a nice house that allowed us to bring Bella & Reilly. Our only regret was we had to go home after only one month! Next year we hope to stay longer!! Thanks Anne & Frank for sharing your cottage!

Ft Morgan Road's unique character brings back memories of earlier days. Picturesque cottages from the 40's and 50's dot the north side of pristine Little Lagoon as they did when the area was a small fishing village. Close to town yet away from it all, you can enjoy the privacy of your own beach in this waterfront neighborhood as do some of its permenent residents.
