FANTASTIC LOCATION BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two weeks at Lost Palms May 31-June 14, 2014. The house is equipped with all the basics and sits right on the beach/ocean. Ralph was on hand for any questions/problems we experienced. Each day was a new adventure with sharks, stingrays, quick rainstorms, shrimping boats, dolphin stampedes, and sea turtle hatchings. All of this made for great daily entertainment. The beach itself was peaceful and most neighbors were large families that return year after year. The beach is dog-friendly and our little Maltese fell in love with the ocean. This is a great place for a low-key, relaxed vacation with family and/or friends. We will be back.

Cottage had everything we needed. Very quiet area and our two small 4 legged kids were welcome and loved the beach. Close to Tacky Jacks 2 and The Beach Club--great food! We would stay there again.

SIMPLY AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent Spring Break at the Lost Palms. My 2 daughters loved the view as they would eat at the table. It was a blessing to our family and we made lots of fun memories. Ralph and Cheryl were wonderful,.helpful when ever we needed anything. The weather was windy and cool ..but we got to fly the kite and play in the sand. We made the best of the weather and also went out to eat at many places..Our favorite was the Shrimp Basket in Gulf Shores. This is a great place to stay and makes memories to last a lifetime.

AWESOME BEACH HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
The Lost Palms on the Beach was an excellent rental choice. Upon late arrival, we were greeted with a welcome message from Ralph & Cheryl printed out on the counter...followed by a nice phone call to make sure we arrived safely and if we needed anything. The house was clean and attention to detail was great: gate on the deck (for child safety), multiple hooks throughout for hanging towels, cameras, hats; nice electric grill on lower deck. Above all, the awesome view and location of this beach house is breathtaking. We watched groups of dolphins swimming past (both directions) daily. Very quiet, private. This rental is a definite one to remember for future vacations! Two thumbs up!!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at Lost Palms and it was AWESOME! The online pictures do not do it justice. Very comfortable and clean and well maintained. Had some great food using the electric grill. We were spoiled by having an upper and lower deck to hang out on. Couldn't ask for better. Ralph welcomed us when we arrived and was close by if we needed anything. Would love to do it again!!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME...JUST BETTER.

  • 5 of 5
Was a little doubtful of the glowing reviews - couldn't be THAT good. Well, it was, and like a previous reviewer stated, pictures do not do it justice. It was a very roomy 2bd/2ba with a good sized kitchen and dining area. We did bring an aerobed for the 2 people w/o a bdrm. It was just easier than the couch. The towels were new and clean and the sheets were the same. Ralph and Cheryl do a good job of anticipating your needs, e.g., umbrellas, binoculars, everything kitchen, and extras for the beach, they've even thought of the dog's stay. Next time we wont need to pack so much and might include the dog!

Our trip ended with quite a rain storm and it was nice to sit out on the porch and watch it. We noticed that some of the other houses didn't offer cover. The lower deck was great for "after beach care" as there was a shower and hose for rinsing off. There was also a grill and a picnic table to eat "al fresco."

We tried both beach markets, but our vote went to the one west of the house. Seemed cheaper (not by much) and the pizza was much better. The last night we ate at Sassy Bass. It did not disappoint. But if you want to do your own shrimp boil, Billy's Seafood on the Bon Secour river is the ticket. It's a little bit of a drive, but well worth it.

We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. In the morning we had dolphin "rush hour," in the afternoon, the Blue Angels practiced their maneuvers (can you hear the "Top Gun" soundtrack? we did) and in the evening we chased ghost crabs around the beach with flashlights. The house also has a small nest of sea turtle eggs just to the west of it.

I want to give extra points just for the fact that we were there during the July 4th week. Things were crazy when we would venture out. But back at the cottage, it was peaceful and clean and beautiful.
