Surprise Landing Cottage is in the quiet, secluded area south of Fairhope known as Battles Wharf.
We are located 1 mile north of Marriott's Grand Hotel and Lakewood's Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on Mobile Bay. Several other golf courses are nearby. We are a short drive to historic Mobile, the Battleship Alabama and the white sandy beaches of the Alabama Gulf coast.
The cottage is fully furnished and you would have use of our private pier on beautiful Mobile Bay. Come and enjoy our spectacular sunsets.
There is a walking/biking trail practically at the back door and Fairhope's charming little shops are a short drive or bike away. The area is known for its many seafood restaurants on the Causeway and other local favorites nearby. Tanger's Outlet Center in Foley is a short 30 minute drive for great bargains and The Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort offers a huge variety of shopping and dining. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail shopping are a ten minute drive.
Fairhope's Arts and Crafts Festival takes place every spring and there are always local artists working in Fairhope. Mobile's Mardi Gras and Fairhope's own Mardi Gras celebrations attract many visitors who like our low-keyed style of celebrating. Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is a unique opportunity to learn about Coastal Alabama.
Whether you are looking for golfing, art, walking, biking, tennis, boating, fishing, crabbing, shopping, discovering coastal South Alabama or just plain relaxing, all are available for you to enjoy year round at Surprise Landing Cottage.
NO WEDDINGS, PARTIES, OR SOCIAL GATHERINGS. Please note that our property is not zoned, equipped, or insured for weddings or events like a reception or after rehearsal party or other gatherings.

This is our second visit to a VRBO and it has always been SURPRISE LANDING! We stayed a week this time and enjoyed everyday! I really loved loved loved the wharf and just looking out at water!! I love that area!!
Deborah and Frank are outstanding hosts! We enjoyed the Satsuma Mandarin fruit from trees in the yard, and of course wine and Deborah's homemade cheesesticks left out for us!
I would highly recommend SURPRISE LANDING to you!
I found Surprise Landing on vrbo for a getaway for my husband and myself. We are in our sixties and had never been to Fairhope, Alabama. The town itself was wonderful, but our greatest pleasure was staying at Surprise Landing. Deborah was away, but Frank was a charming and helpful host, the kind of fella you want for your next door neighbor.
The cottage was immaculate and cleverly laid out; the surroundings were gorgeous (thanks, Frank, for ordering up that weather). A bottle of wine and Deborah's great cheese straws will greet you, and you get to sit out on the Moore's wonderful pier.
We couldn't have designed a better experience, and we look forward to visiting again.
This past month my husband and I have been celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and we stopped in Fairhope Alabama for a few days on our way back to Georgia from New Orleans. This was our first visit to Fairhope and we loved the town, the people, the restaurants, the shopping, everything--especially our stay at Surprise Landing Guest Cottage. Frank and Deborah were the perfect hosts and the cottage was a special place to kick back and relax. We particularly loved drinks or coffee on the pier and the wonderful bird show in the bay. We highly recommend a stay in this charmingly comfortable cottage that had absolutely everything we could need. We will be back! Joe & Marianne
My wife and I spent the week visiting the charming town of Fairhope and surrounding areas. The cottage was just
perfect it had everything one needed; including a pier to relax and watch great sunsets. Frank and Deborah seemed truly intent on making our stay a happy and memorable one and they hit the mark.
Deborah and Frank, Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.I truly enjoyed every moment on my retreat at your magnificent property.The sunrises as well as the sunsets are absolutely the most beautiful I have ever witnessed.I loved waking up having my morning cup of coffee on the pier as the sun rose over the beautiful oaks,and listening to the seagulls and pelicans as they started their day .The hammock was wonderful relaxing, and a great place to read a book or just meditate.The view of all the beautiful homes and golden waters that surround the property is breath taking from the dock at sunset.The cottage was clean cozy and relaxing. I'll never forget my time at Surprise Landing.Rebecca
The cottage was absolutely the most pristine perfect getaway for my husband and I. We were greeted by Deborah and Frank upon our arrival and were given a friendly tour. We spent each evening on the pier and it was so peaceful. I highly recommend Surprise Landing for a getaway or vacation. We will be return visitors.
