Serenity every hour

  • 5 of 5
The little house on the bay was the perfect place for our annual family vacation. My grown children accompanied my husband and me to this peaceful haven for a week in August. The high point for me was sitting on the lovely back deck and watching the bay. Every day we witnessed dolphins cruising by, and one afternoon I was able to wile away 30 minutes watching a pod of dolphins playing in the distance. My children spent time on the very nearby beach every day, and one day we took the ferry to Dauphine Island to visit the estuarium there. Another day we hiked the trail to Alligator Lake. We enjoy cooking as a family, so we prepared breakfast and lunch each day in the wonderful kitchen and opted for dinner out at the nearby "Sassy Bass" or the myriad of restaurants in Gulf Shores. My son and daughter loved the location because it is away from the hoards of folks staying in the condos and surrounded by the wildlife refuge. My husband was up to watch the sunrise every day, and the fishing dock is the perfect place to watch the sunset. If you long for peace, this is the place!

Great week

  • 5 of 5
I totally and completely enjoyed my stay. This was definitely far too much room for one person, but it was worth it and I will do it again. Wonderful house, quite, feeling of privacy and beautiful view of the bay. Pelicans diving, dolphins swimming by, crabs in the trap every day, catching flounder and just being lazy. Convenient to everything, close to nothing. Loved it and would recommend this property to everyone. Just leave me a week open next year. Thanks for having me Melissa.

wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great relaxing week. Very quiet, and even though there were houses in sight, we hardly ever saw or heard anyone. Just want the doctor ordered! The new dock was great for sitting to watch a sunset and the deck for a cup of coffee! We rode bikes and went for runs. Having the Pine Beach Trail at Bon Secour just down the street was a great addition.

Had a fabulous vacation!

We spent a week at this lovely home on the bay. The house and grounds were great, so relaxing. The view was wonderful, from the decks and the pier. We had the best time and will definitely go back!

Loved it

Despite the fact that the "epic", "historic", and "unprecedented" weather hindered our plans, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shellbanks! Melissa was great to work with both by email and by phone and through our dealings with her, we felt very confident that we were renting a nice home from a reputable property owner. As Melissa was to be out of town during our stay, she made sure we had a local contact person in case we needed anything and due to the weather, we contacted Tiffany several times and she too was extremely nice and helpful! We found the home to be clean and nicely furnished and had absolutely everything we needed, just like home. Our son was especially thankful for the movies he watched when the weather caused the satellite to go out, and I was glad to find the stereo to be able to hear the weather. The view from the back deck was beautiful once the storms stopped and the smell of the shrubs in bloom and the wisteria (I think) climbing the deck was wonderful. One of the reasons we chose this home was so our 13 year old son could just walk right out and fish and we weren't disappointed. He kept trying to get some fishing in between the storms and finally on the 3rd day it cleared up enough for him to do some serious fishing; he caught 3 nice sized redfish, several croakers, and a stingray, the highlight of his trip! He was outsmarted by several other large fish, but he out fished his dad so he was happy. We spotted a dolphin, lots of pelicans, and made friends with a heron our son named John, who ended up with all the little fish that were caught:). Cleaning the fish was a breeze with the cleaning area under the house and we took the fish to Mikee's and they cooked it for us! (Melissa, I forgot to replace the square plastic "glad/ziploc" container we used to take the fish to Mikee's, they threw it away and I completely forgot to get another one, I'll send one to you) Our son woke us up early to go out and fish and we had to drag him in after dark. We loved the quiet location and privacy of this home and felt very safe there. This was our third trip to Gulf Shores and we were really spoiled this time by this home and it's amenities, we highly recommend it! Our son thinks we need to plan a return trip later in the summer since the weather was so bad this time and asked us to please make reservations at Shellbanks again. Thank you, Melissa, for sharing your home with us, this trip will forever be known as The Shellbanks Adventure!

Amazing Bay Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Our first stay was Oct 2013 and we immediately applied our deposit to a 2nd stay. I can't think of a thing missing. When we first drove up the long drive in anticipation, we were not disappointed when we got to the house site. I have been visiting the Gulf Shores area all of my life and have searched for a place exactly like this one. We have definitely found our paradise on the bay. Our two dogs also love the property and having them with us is truly a plus. Working with the owner is so easy and she made us feel so welcome in her bay home. We will be back time and time again. Simply stated, WE LOVE IT!!!
