Fairhope Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Bayfront - double wide lot, 3 bedrooms 2 baths plus separate guest Cottage

We own this bay front cottage because living on the water, seeing the water from mostly every room, and waking up to the birds singing does wonders for the soul. Our family loves coming here and 'getting away' from it all. It is a charming, clean, great open floor plan with living room, dining room, kitchen all open and windows / sliding doors all showing the unobstructed bay views. #tremendous!

***NO parties, no weddings, not suitable for 'spring break' type getaways. If you are looking to party, we are not a good fit. Kindly look elsewhere. We seek family minded groups seeking peace, quiet, relaxation and good times. We are good neighbors, are community minded and do not want any disturbance. If you are like-minded, please proceed! We'd love to host you! #GoodNeighbors #BeCool

About Richard

We are a family of five who reside in New York City. I am an entrepreneur and my wife is a Surgeon. We love traveling together and after our first visit to Fairhope, fell in love and wanted a small piece of it in our lives.

Richard purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Richard chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We visited Fairhope and instantly fell in love with the small community -- terrific art scene, charming downtown, fantastic restaurants, and a unbelievable quality of life. Very authentic, not too touristy, and drop dead gorgeous.

We visit Fairhope and escape from the rest of the world. It allows us to spend great quality family time together, slow down, reconnect, and rest and relax. It is incredibly peaceful living on the water and seeing birds, dolphins and wildlife from your windows, boat house, etc. Waking up to the sounds of the birds singing is magnificent.

What makes this cottage unique

Unobstructed bayfront views from most rooms. Double wide lot (extra privacy). Terrific boat house with swing bench located over the water. Can you imagine a better place to watch the most beautiful sunset you've ever seen?

Absolutely Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on Wednesday and Monica(the local manager) had graciously gone and turned on the lights for us to make it easy to find and welcoming as well. She was also very nice and helpful. The home was very clean and well appointed with an absolutely beautiful view! The kitchen was open so that even when preparing food you were part of the family fun. The apartment was also very nice and great for additional guest. The only thing is I did not get enough time in the hammock on the boat dock! Thank you for the hospitality and we will definitely be looking forward to the next time.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had three adult couples visiting the area for a family reunion. The layout of cottage was perfect as everyone felt they had good privacy along with sufficient common space. The detached apartment worked well as one of our couples desired to sleep later than others so they were not disturbed by the activities of others.

We really enjoyed the covered deck area at the end of the dock. We sat there enjoying the bay breeze in the shade listening to music. Didn't want to leave.

County Road 1 is a peaceful stretch of road. I walked several miles each morning and met many bicyclist getting their time in as well. Our cottage was roughly a halfway point between Gulf Shores and I-10 (20 -30 minutes either way). Unbelievably good food within minutes. Our wives enjoyed shopping in downtown Fairhope.

We had good communication with the property manager. The unit was clean and the AC was cool. Would recommend this cottage to any of our friends and will be planning a return visit when we can stay a little longer.

Daughter's wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Bamalicious on 3/10/16 as our daughter was being married at Oak Hollow Farm on 3/12/16. Upon our arrival we were so pleasantly surprised that the home is even more than we expected. The home is very spacious and has an amazing view of the bay. The home was spotless and totally furnished with more than we ever needed. And Monica (the local property manager) is an absolute doll. She - like most folks we encountered in AL - could not have been any sweeter. We now know when we go down to visit our daughter who now resides in AL fulltime - we have a fabulous place to stay! Thank you Richard for all of your help and hospitality.

We had a great tie at this property! The big great room was perfect for our family and gave the grandchild a place to play. Loved watching the weather and water on the back porch. The apartment was perfect for one of the couples . The kitchen and the big bar great for adult gatherings. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Wonderful place for a great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The home has a nice open floor plan with multiple areas for our family to relax. My wife's favorite area was the screened in porch with a relaxing view of the bay. The 3 bathrooms is a nice touch for large families. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Bamalicious home.
