About Ann Gunter

Crepe Myrtle has been our family retreat for 33 years. We have spent our summers here raising 2 children to love the Eastern Shore life style and we are now sharing the experience with our 7 grandchildren. The house is perfect for that family reunion or for our Northern friends wanting to escape the winter's cold. There is nothing to compare to the warmth and charm of nearby Fairhope or a visit to the historic Grand Hotel, just 4.6 miles away, for dinner. Indulge in shopping at the nearby Foley Outlet stores, or just stretch your legs on the wide walking and biking path out your back door. Practice your swing at any of the many nearby Robert Trent Jones golf courses.

Ann Gunter purchased this house in 1978

Beautiful and charming

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home. So relaxing and charming and when you see the 7 beds on what must have once been a "sleeping porch" you can almost hear the laughter of children. Beautifully decorated with personal touches that give it a real home charm. Loved our time here. Our only regret, wedding activities kept us from spending as much time as would have enjoyed just sitting, relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous views.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our stay at Crepe Myrtle and have been on repeat saying how much we enjoyed our time there. It's a perfect home for a family vacation with plenty of room for couples and kids. The home is exactly as pictured (stunning and homey), and you will absolutely love watching the sunset on your very own deck. We hope to return again soon and will choose Crepe Myrtle for our stay!

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5
Words truly cannot express how much all of us enjoyed this charming, precious, beautifully decorated house on Mobile Bay. It was fully equipped with all the necessities. We were a group of 11 women and we cooked in every night (after long days of shopping) except one and the kitchen was very well equipped for a large group. The only thing I recommend is bringing extra wash clothes. We go to Fairhope annualy on this shopping/girls trip and we have stayed at the Grand and have rented another house on the Bay but this was our favorite thus far. In fact, we have already booked it for next year. Ann was very sweet, friendly, and prompt with our booking. Highly recommended.......would love to go back with my family when it is a little warmer to enjoy the fabulous pier.

Thanksgiving with Family at Crepe Myrtle!

  • 5 of 5
We had wonderful Family time at Crepe Myrtle! The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of dishes ,casserole dishes and pots and pans to make a dinner for 13 people. The three cooks managed to work comfortably in the kitchen all at the same time! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their space if need be and also room for the entire gathering. The house is well appointed and nicely decorated. We found it exceptionally clean! We found cards and games which came in handy and some interesting books to read. The sunsets were beautiful and we all found ourselves gathering to enjoy them together. We had a cold week but still managed to enjoy the patio and the grill when it was the guys night to cook! We experienced excellent communication with the owner before and during our visit. We would highly recommend this property as we had everything we could wish for! We hope to return soon!

Extraordinary sunsets, genuine comfort

  • 5 of 5
7 women friends from around the U. S. were awed and amazed by the sunsets from the pier of this beautiful and comfortable home. Every item needed for our week was thoughtfully provided. Online descriptions and pictures are accurate, and the property is immaculately maintained, inside and out. The location makes getting to other restaurants and attractions easy, and we took advantage of most all of them. I'd choose this location again in a heartbeat!

Lovely stay at Crepe Myrtle

  • 5 of 5
Everyone in our party of 11 (6 adults, 5 children) agreed that Crepe Myrtle was the perfect venue for our family stay over a wedding weekend. The children were particularly excited about the delightful sleeping porch with the seven beds in a row. There was plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our group to gather, dine, view sunset, just hang out or watch TV. We would recommend this spot to anyone looking for the perfect Eastern Shore getaway.

Immaculately manicured large front and back yard, 100 feet on the bay, backdoor access to biking and walking paths all the way to Fairhope. Plenty of off street parking. Just minutes to Gulf beaches, Robert Trent Jones golf courses, and Tanger Center outlet shopping. Stroll the boardwalk in front of the Grand Hotel and visit beautiful downtown Fairhope with its many specialty shops and beautifully landscaped street corners. Sunsets over Mobile Bay are not to be missed while sitting on your own comfortable warf.

Notes:
Crepe Myrtle is a great home for family or couple's gatherings, a girls' shopping get-a-way, meetings at the Grand Hotel, romantic weekends alone. There are lots of great sidewalks for jogging or strolling and exceptional shopping and dining in nearby Fairhope. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful sunsets? Have your cocktails and watch each evening from the patio under the oak tree, the wharf or the glassed in porch. Truly, the Eastern Shore at Point Clear is a special place and Crepe Myrtle offers a unique opportunity to experience it.
