About Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores
A native of Mobile, Alabama I grew up on two shores spending many days as a child on Pleasure Island and then traveling back and forth on summer days and weekends as a teen and young adult to bask in the sun on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores. In 1990 I bought my home on Little Lagoon where I raised my family while teaching high school in the area. Now after retiring from nearly 30 years in education I enjoy inviting others to share the pleasures of the island and the Ft. Morgan peninsula. I am a licensed Realtor in the State of Alabama and proudly work with Exit Realty, Gulf Shores I own this home jointly with my daughter Marguerite who is a Coast Guard search and rescue helocopter pilot, former Navy helicopter pilot and graduate of the United States Naval Academy. While she and her husband can not be here to help with the management she always enjoys coming home for a stay in her grandmother's house. This house is one of several I rent to guests from around the world. Some I own and some belong to friends and neighbors. I have made many friends and always enjoy making new ones. It is my pleasure to see others enjoy a relaxing vacation in a home that is just right for them.

Why Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores chose Gasque
This property is special to me because it was my mother's home. All of her life she dreamed of living on the water and at 78 she designed and built this bayfront home. She enjoyed spending the last five years of her life quilting in the front room where she had a beautiful view of Mobile Bay and lots of light from the many windows. She loved sharing her home with others and always enjoyed visitors. I know she would be happy that guests come from all over the world to sit on her front porch and watch the dolphins play. I take pride in the continued care of my mother's home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Guests at this home will see a different side of Gulf Shores. Located on a secluded, quiet, cul de sac this home is truly away from it all yet at the same time close to the beautiful white sandy Gulf beach. Our guests enjoy sitting on the covered dock watching seagulls, pelicans, and dolphins play. They enjoy the shaded screen porch and beautiful moss covered oaks as well as panoramic views and incredible sunsets over Mobile Bay.

The absolute best place we’ve ever stayed. Peaceful, clean as it can be, and everything a person could ask for. Close to everything and if your a golfer this is the perfect hub. Just a few miles (and on the same road) as Pennisula and Kiva Dunes. A few miles from Craft Farms too. On top of it all, it’s pet friendly with a fenced in yard. Martha Howard does an outstanding job with this rental!
Quiet, relaxing and beautiful spot on the bay
We enjoyed our trip immensely. It was so beautiful and quiet, we didn't want to leave. The house is well equipped and oh so comfortable. It was a plus that we could take our fur buddy along. Beautiful spot, beautiful home with a cozy feel. You will be booking a year ahead for this one!
Had a great time.
We stayed for 3 weeks and really enjoyed ourselves.
Wonderful stay, house is clean, well stocked, and great porches. Martha is always good to work with
We have enjoyed our stay at Meme''s for several years. We always look forward to our winter stay. Everything we need for our stay is in the house.
Thanks for the nice review. As always we love having you at Meme's. Winter would not be the same without you! Maybe next year January will be as nice as February was!
The home and setting could not have been better.
The house is a little off the main area but well worth the drive and if you want a place where you can truly detach and unwind this is it. We came down for the world food championship and after a stressful day it was so nice to come and sit at our quiet spot on the bay. The house has a great fenced yard for the dog and wonderful screened porches so your comfortable in any weather. My experience from start to end was wonderful and Margaret was always available to answer questions and made sure everything was ready for us. Well worth the price.
Meme's cottage is my happy place.
It is the best place and we love it. So relaxing and comfortable. Can't wait to come back.
