About Cindy Boswell

We visited the area 8 years ago and fell in love with Gulf Shores. We have another vacation rental in Harbor Springs, Michigan that is listed on Home Away #3663428. It's a very beautiful area in northern Michigan on Little Traverse Bay.

Cindy Boswell purchased this house in 2015

Why Cindy Boswell chose Gulf Shores

While visiting family, we found and acquired this unique property. It is in the middle of all the activity yet it feels very secluded because of the natural surroundings. The pool and spa really enhance the home and is our favorite feature. We have spent several evenings in the heated pool & spa when it was in the 30's outside. Our goal is to one day retire in Gulf Shores at our wonderful home :)

What makes this house unique

Our home is very unique in that we are in the middle of all the action, yet our pool and lagoon are very private with lots of lush landscaping. It is a perfect getaway for couples, families, or golf outings.

Perfect house for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the house but the pool/hot tub was by far the best. Having 3 small children that wear out after a while at the beach it was great to go back and have the pool to relax in. There is plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and endless pool toys. The was extremely well taken care of and everything was clean and fully stocked. Ron the property manager was very nice and answered any questions we had right away. Only problem was we had to leave early because of Hurricane Nate coming in but the owners were very nice and offered us a free night the next time we come down. Thanks Mark and Cindy!

Sister's Trip 2017

  • 5 of 5

Great Property! Very clean and abundantly furnished with everything we needed for our vacation. We enjoyed the pool, & hot tub, however, the blower (jets) on the hot tub were not working and could not be repaired during our stay. The cabinets are quite tall for us shorter folks, but all did not stop us from utilizing the kitchen. We even rented some kayaks to paddle around the lagoon in which the local rental place even delivered and picked them up for us. Overall we enjoyed your home, thank you for sharing it with us.

Perfect family escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine loved our September 2017 stay at Chateau LaFeet! The homeowners were very responsive to my questions pre-arrival, and the home was exactly as presented on the website. The kitchen was very well appointed, allowing us to enjoy several family meals together instead of going out to restaurants with two small babies. Every bedroom and bathroom also provided nice amenities, allowing our mix of couples, new parents and grandparents to enjoy a week of R&R. The private pool made this rental extra special and provided a sand-free alternative for swimming with the little ones. The location is close to a variety of shops and restaurants, making Chateau LaFeet a destination that can work for families with kids of all ages. Thank you, Mark and Cindy, for a memorable week for our family.

Georgetown, TX

Property was clean and beautifully situated between a lagoon and the ocean,.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, spacious, and beautifully situated between a lagoon and the ocean. We enjoyed fishing in the lagoon located right in the back of the house. There were a couple of blue crabs that would come up to the water's edge and there were hermit crabs walking about at the edge too. We also fished in the ocean surf each day. Unfortunately, the house is really too far to reasonably walk to the beach with swimming or fishing gear in hand, so we drove each day making a mess of our vehicles. Luckily, there was plenty of free parking at the beach so that was never an issue. When we returned from the beach each day, we would immediately get in the pool to cool off. The pool was well maintained and absolutely refreshing. We even put the hot tub to use a few times and enjoyed it.

Everything at the house worked properly except the Wi-Fi, the TV, and the grill. The Wi-Fi was so slow it was unusable and many of our devices couldn't even get connected at all (I'd recommend that the owners update the router configuration to allow 50-60 devices to connect simultaneously as I am suspecting we hit a limit that was set too low and also consider increasing the circuit speed). When the TV was on, the audio would be fine for about 30-45 minutes until it was disrupted with static noise over the audio channel. We had to repeatedly turn the tv off and back on again to fix it. The grill worked but it was a struggle to adequately heat the food consistently. I think the burners need to be replaced after being guncked up from use. We cleaned the top but it wasnt enough to address the heating issues we were experiencing. We even replaced the propane tank to see if that would fix the issue but it didnt. It just took longer to get food cooked. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and utensils. Oddly, the kitchen seemed to be designed for people who were taller than 6 feet as the countertops were higher than normal as was the microwave and cabinets. The bedrooms were clean and beds/sheets were comfortable to sleep in. The bathrooms were also clean and showers had excellent water pressure. The A/C was a workhorse and never let us down.

All in all we had a great time and this property was a good choice for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great comments Gregory. We strive to have everything in excellent working condition and appreciate when guest let us know immediately when there is an issue. Unfortunately, the cable service in Gulf Shores occasionally has problems with the grid in our area. This is what we were told you were experiencing when we called for service. The TV was immediately replaced with a new UHD 53" smart TV with Netflix, I apologize that you had to watch one of the other TV's. Our grill was new at the beginning of the summer and did not needs new burners when it was checked. The kitchen has been updated, you would love it. Again, thank you for all your comments.

Wonderful place to vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Gulf Shores with our family was amazing. Chateau LaFeet was beautiful, and accommodated our family of 13 very well...lots of room and very well stocked. The pool was amazing, and the privacy that the beautiful landscaping provided was incredible! We would recommend this house for anyone with a large family for a wonderful vacation!
