We had four adults and one child in our party and were quite comfortable in this charmingly decorated two bedroom house on the bay. By far the most glorious aspect of staying here though is the gorgeous setting. The house is directly on the bay with a pier from which you can spend a leisurely afternoon fishing and watching the fascinating wildlife. We saw pelicans dive into the water for fish, enjoyed repeated visits from a beautiful heron, and were blessed with three dolphin sightings. My son had fun catching small crabs that were around the property in abundance. In the mornings, it was just a short drive (less than five minutes) to the pristine, uncrowded beach at the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge (turn right on Hwy 180 and then left onto Mobile St.) This beach with snow white sand and only a few beach houses in view for miles and miles was certainly one of the most peaceful, lovely beaches I have ever visited. The Gulf Shores "strip" with many restaurants and stores is just a 15 minute drive in the other direction, and if you want to go all the way to the end of Hwy 180, I highly recommend taking the ferry over to Dauphin Island for the day. Dauphin Island has a nice, informative Estuarium, and the tour of Fort Gaines is very interesting if you are a Civil War buff. We are so glad we did not stay in a boring hotel room or condo. Renting this very clean and affordable house on the bay is one of the best vacation decisions we've made!
