Overview

About the property

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?

Breathtaking! Great place to rent.

  • 5 of 5

This is a little piece of heaven. My inlaws stay at the Mother-in-law. They absolutely love the little apartment. There was everything that you need. They would fix breakfast every morning. Nice that there was pots and pans provided for cooking. They loved the swing in the carport. Or I would find them on the pier. They loved fishing.

My husband and I and his young adults stayed in the other bedrooms.

We stayed the whole week. Everything is furnished for you. We love sitting on the back porch - screen inside porch. We had a awesome time. The guys went fishing. They caught lots of fish. They even caught 8 crabs. We saw dolphins swimming too. At the end of the week. We had birthday party for our Grandaughter who turned 4. It was the perfect place. I highly recommend this place. We have rented this place 2 years in a row. It is absolutely worth it.

The improvements would be replacing some of the boards on pier. And light on the pier.

We loved our stay and homeowner was awesome to work with!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had everything we needed! The only thing that could possibly be improved on was rails on the pier and lights so you can sit on dock at night. But everything was absolutely wonderful! Making plans to come back next summer!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time. It was a very relaxing week. The house was great. We had plenty of room and every thing we needed. (The guest house was a nice bonus.) The pier needs a little attention but at the same time, we never felt like it was unsafe. We enjoyed fishing and crabbing from it and watching some amazing sunsets.

We would also like to thank Monica, the property manager, who met us there when we checked in. She made us feel right at home and answered all of our questions. It may be old fashioned, but I still prefer dealing with people in person. Great customer service like that is hard to find these days.

Beautiful location and well equipped home.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very nice. Open floor plan allowed for our family to gather for meals, conversations, games and tv watching.

Pier is in need of some new slats and more seating, but otherwise we enjoyed it.
