Great Location, Rustic Cottage, Overpriced

  • 3 of 5
Arrived at the cottage and was pleasantly surprised with the location which I feel would be hard to beach for a get away cottage. The cottage was well stocked with most of the things one would need for short - medium term beach stays.

Unfortunately the weather did not corporate with a cold front rolling in at about the same time we did. NO SWIMMING!! But this is not the fault of the cottage owner so is just a comment in passing.

The cottage is a bit rustic as you might expect but the lack of proper building maintenance was evident but is was clean and comfortable.

We did feel that the cottage was overpriced for this time of year (Oct 31 ~ Nov 3) but would have been fine for high season.

We would stay again but would have to negotiate a better price unless it was high season.

Pair O Dice, Gulf Shores, Alabama

This is a great place to stay in Gulf Shores. We have been to Gulf Shores before but staying at this cottage, away from the crowds, was by far the best vacation. The cabin is clean and comfortable and we loved watching the gulf from the deck. The short walk to the beach made beach walks easy. We really appreciated Mary's information on the things to see, restaurants, and shopping in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Christmas!

  • 5 of 5
What a great week! Other than the weather, our first trip to Gulf Shores was amazing! The cottage was very comfortable, clean and inviting. The pictures don't do this little gem justice. The privacy was perfect. We didn't feel like our little dogs were bothering anyone and they really enjoyed their first trip to the beach. I would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to be back when the weather is warmer (and less windy).

Completely relaxing

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful vacation we had at Pair O Dice. The cottage was clean & Mary was so easy to work with!

No crowds, perfect weather, wonderful view & dolphins to watch every day! Our 2 teenagers enjoyed fishing from the beach, and our 6 month old Dachshund loved chasing crabs. A wonderful vacation for our entire family.

Notes:
This cottage is very private, cozy, pet friendly and not smoking! Walk onto the front deck & see the beautiful white pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico about 200 yards from your front door. Ft. Morgan area is very 'protected' because the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is located (literally) right by the house. There are walking & biking trails within walking distance of the cottage. This area is beautiful & free from high rise hotels & other 'city' life that creates noise & light pollution. See the beautiful stars at night because it's so dark, also see the dolphins jumping in the morning because it's a common occurrence at your front door. This cottage has many return renters Come to Ft. Morgan & stay in our cozy little cottage, Pair O Dice! Email me for questions! Mary Watters
