Overview

Gulf Shores Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ever dream of floating around in a houseboat and just taking in all the beauty? Well, that's exactly how you'll feel when you come to 'The Camp'. When you walk into the the living room/kitchen area, you get a 180 degree beautiful waterfront view, complete with grassy islands and sea birds. The beautiful porch/lanai goes almost right up to the water's edge. Kayaker's will just LOVE this place!!!

'The Camp' is located near Gulf Shores' white sandy beaches and overlooks a creek which immediately opens into Wolf Bay. If you like doing it all on your vacation such as boating, fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, swimming, going to the beach, shopping at the Tanger outlet mall, this is the place for you.

You will love the quiet serenity our community offers. Away from all the hustle and bustle, you can return from your beach trips and truly relax while dining out on your lanai or just gazing at the water views from indoors. In any season, the Camp is the perfect vacation spot for those that love to observe nature. We spot many pelicans, dolphins swimming by, and all sorts of fish and wildlife.

Let THE CAMP be your restful coastal vacation spot this year and you'll see,.....you'll want to come back.

The 'Camp' is tastefully decorated and is fully furnished with everything you'll need to enjoy a memorable and comfortable vacation to enjoy lots of water activities. You'll sleep like a baby on our comfy mattresses. The smaller bedroom has a VCR with movies/cartoons for kids when the weather won't permit outside activities.

You won't pay the high beach prices here, but you are close enough to get there in 10 to 15 minutes, then come home to your own quiet, tranquil creek cottage.

You are welcome to bring your boat....as long as it can get under the bridge nearby. Any boat such as a pontoon, kayak, jet ski, 'fish & ski' sized boat would be suitable. You can dock right at the end of the pier. And why not take advantage of getting free seafood! You can catch crabs right at the end of the pier!

You can boat up the creek to get to the fresh water fishing/swimming and feel like you are an explorer seeing our virgin Southern waterways for the first time (it's so natural), or go down the creek to turn the bend and make it into Wolf Bay. There's so much to see and do.

You won't lack for entertainment in the Gulf Shores' area. I forgot to mention the great seafood restaurants here and not to mention we are 5 min. from the famous Lambert's Cafe'. Or if you'd just rather take it slow and easy....you definitely can here.

The tiled lanai is huge and is large enough to hang your hammock and still have enough room for dining and sitting area. The full kitchen has a spacious dining area as well, should you like to dine in a lot.

The home is 1,200 sq. feet and that's not including the 30' x 15' lanai. The master bath is spacious and is also accessible to the Living area. You won't want to leave this place once you get here.

Much care and consideration has been made in making your stay as comfy as possible because we want you to think of this as 'Your Camp' and come back time and time again.

About Colleen Totsch

Hi. We know you will love The Camp as much as we do. We had the house built on the waterfront lot we purchased over a decade ago in order to come visit our parents down here on the coast. When my father became terminally ill we decided to go ahead and move down and put the camp available for rent. My husband and I live close enough that we are able to care for the property ourselves. This keeps it in great shape.

Colleen Totsch purchased this cottage in 1999

Colleen - The property was just exactly as you described it. We found it on the second go-round (went across the bridge before deciding we must have missed a turn!) and it really was what we were looking for in a back-to-school getaway. We had a great time with a visit to LuLu's and several other places. We are looking forward to returning, perhaps in the spring, but no dates for sure yet. Keep the porch light on for us!

Serenity!

The Camp was perfect for our needs--great location, quiet & beautiful surroundings, clean and comfortable. Loved that we weren't too far from anywhere we wanted to go, but at the end of the day could return home away from the crowds. Great eateries nearby as well as fresh seafood markets, movie theaters, outlets, and the beach. Able to get in a lot of bike riding in and around Gulf State Park. Fishing off the dock was nice and, most of all, the large back porch to just sit peacefully, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of our surroundings. A+ in our estimation!

We really enjoyed our stay at the camp, it has everything you need to be extremely comfortable, is very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Yet still close enough to all area activities. We did not even go to the beach as the pier is great for catching all the sun you want. We will be back.

We thorougly enjoyed our stay at The Camp. We loved being able to sit in the back yard on the dock and watch the dolphins swim by! The house is perfect for short or long trips and we have never felt so at home as we did when whe stayed at The Camp. The atmosphere is so peaceful and my family will definitely be back - this was our second stay there!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
We loved it! The quaint cottage is perfect - quiet and serene, yet only minutes away from restaurants, activities, etc. I fell in love with the back porch. It is perfect for early morning coffee retreats, reading, or playing games with the kids. Thank you for allowing us to stay. If ever we return to the area, we will definitely stay here!
