Overview

Fairhope House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Crepe Myrtle is a charming traditional 'old Mobile Bay home'. It is located on Mobile Bay and has been our family retreat for over 30 years. Located 4.5 miles past the Grand Hotel and about 12 minutes from Fairhope, it is close to shopping and restaurants. The approx. 3000 sq.ft fully air-conditioned and heated house includes a large glassed-in porch stretching across the front of the house offering waterfront views with spectacular sunsets. Sit on the outdoor front patio under the old Live Oak trees or take a stroll out on the pier to kayak, swim or crab off the deck. We have 100 feet on the bay with a large manicured front and back yard. Chose from multiple spots within the house for sitting or dining or just getting away from it all. Six flat screen TVs are scattered throughout the house. Cable TV, high speed Internet, wi-fi, and telephone available. The fully equipped, newly renovated kitchen with granite counter tops, includes 2 refrigerators, dishwasher, new convection double ovens, new disposal, gas cook top, toaster oven, microwave, and many small appliances. The three bedrooms have 2 king beds, 1 queen bed, and 7 twins are located on the sleeping porch. The master bedroom has a separate bathroom with tub and shower and granite counter top vanities. The guest bathroom has also been newly remodeled with granite counter tops and walk-in shower and is shared by the 2 guest bedrooms. We are very proud of our house and keep it immaculate shape. Unfortunately we are UNABLE TO HOST WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, OR OTHER LARGE PARTIES. Occupancy is limited to the 13 registered guests.

Keywords: Traditional one story home, on Mobile Bay, 3 bedrooms, 2 modern bathrooms, newly remodled kitchen, wharf, beautifully landscaped yard, near Fairhope, Gulf Shores, Foley Outlets, Golf Courses, shops and restaurants, 4.5 miles past the Grand Hotel.

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

This home was fantastic. So comfortable and charming with an amazing view. Loved it. My grandchildren loved the sleeping porch and swings, and their own private alcove to watch videos.. I loved the incredible view at sunset from the dock and the beautifully decorated and spacious rooms. Ann was a perfect vacation owner. Highly recommend this home for families.

A beautiful home for a family getaway. Great location and porch!

  • 5 of 5
My 2 brothers, their wives, my husband and I stayed at Crepe Myrtle for 4 nights. We loved the home. It is decorated exactly like the photos on the web site. The kitchen was well equipped as we would prepare our breakfasts and afternoon snacks. You rent some houses and you can barely make a cup of coffee with the 2nd hand utensils or cookware. Not at Crepe Myrtle!
The glassed in porch has floor to ceiling windows that face the bay. One evening while we were there, we turned off all the lights in the house and watched a huge thunderstorm come across the bay. We squealed like kids watching the lightening (Our age group ranged from 58 to 70!) It is just 4 miles south of the Grand Hotel and conveniently located to Fairhope and Magnolia Springs. Ann was so accommodating and so easy to work with that we will rent Crepe Myrtle again!

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.

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.
