About A. W. Brandon

Growing up in Demopolis, AL, my family enjoyed an annual family trip to the beach. We owned and rented a condo on the Alabama coast until we found the amazing area around Hwy 30-A. Here, my children learned to ride their bikes, build sand castles,learned to swim and enjoy the summer concerts at nearby Seaside. They learned to YOLO at Watercolor. We enjoyed having friends come down to help make memories of quality time with family and friends. We now live in Tuscaloosa (I am a proud alumni of the College of Nursing, 1989). One daughter is enrolled premed at the University of AL, another at Spring Hill College , in Mobile, poly-science and a son who wants to go to South AL (Mobile).

We want you to enjoy our home as much as we do. Thank you for your interest in Villa ABBA.

Why A. W. Brandon chose South Walton

'Villa ABBA' is coastal living at its finest. A three story, 3 BR, 2.5 bath vacation home, professionally decorated and nestled between the Point Washington National Forest and the popular restaurants, shops, antique and art galleries of Hwy 30-A. Red Fish Village is across the street. We are just west of Watercolor and Seaside, but at a fraction of the price! We love our pets and will consider animals, for an additional cleaning fee.

Special off- season rates begin after Labor Day!

We welcome Snowbirds for November-March 15, 2014. Please email for special rates!!!

What makes this house unique

The Master Suite is on the 2nd floor, with a king bed, flat screen TV. There is a music center and private balcony over looking the mature palms, along the house. A separate shower, garden jetted-tub, double vanity and walk-in closet is there. A hand carved antique walnut French double headboard (circa 1890)is in the second bedroom & another balcony over looking the mature palms. Sooo relaxing! The bunk room sleeps 4 with a single/double/trundle room & cozy bean bags to view the TV/DVD player to keep the children happy and entertained in their special haven. Included for your enjoyment with razor scooters and a rip stick.

Wonderful Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at our stay here. The owner was so accommodating, and everything was in order. Loved the neighborhood- it was a quick drive or a do-able walk to the beach. Although we didn't get around to doing it, there was a place to rent bikes nearby and fantastic sidewalks. We absolutely love Blue Mountain Creamery- it is a must try! The beach access from the house is amazing and very uncrowded- even over spring break! There are also bathrooms at the beach access which was nice. Would definitely recommend this house to any looking for a relaxing beach getaway.

Love Villa Abba!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Abba was wonderful! We had a group of couples staying together for a destination wedding, and it was spacious enough for everyone. Bathrooms and kitchen were modern and well done. The location was perfect, very central. The homeowner was extremely easy to work with and left great instructions so there was not a single problem during our stay. Check in and check out were simple which is great because those can often be the headaches of a vacation. Would recommend to anyone looking for a beach home away from home!

This is an awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful house. We enjoyed our vacation because we knew that at the end of the day, we had this house to go "home" to. The listing description was accurate and everything that was promised, was there. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The owner left perfect instructions on how to access the property and left very good suggestions on activities, places to eat, etc. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. It is in a perfect location where the neighborhood is quiet but lots of places to visit nearby and the beach is within walking distance. The neighbors were all very friendly.

Like being at home, but better because you're at the beach :)

  • 5 of 5

We loved the homey feeling of Villa Abba. The home had so many nice little touches, it is not a typical vacation rental. It was sized just right for our family of five (kids aged 14, 12, 5). The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and we felt like one of the locals. The location was great--an easy walk to the beach and we could jump in the car and be in Grayton Beach or Gulf Place for dining or shopping in just a few minutes. Anne was gracious and accommodating. I texted her a couple of times during the week and she was quick to respond and very helpful. We hope to be back next year!

Fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week at Abba Villa. Anne is so kind, accommodating, and welcoming - I never worried about a thing. She is exceptionally responsive and we had no issues before or during our stay. Even the neighbor was a delight insisting we park in his driveway. The kitchen had everything we needed and Publix is less than five mins away. We loved the three levels - husband and I had our own level (the master bedroom is a dream) and kids had theirs - we have two boys 12 and 16. One night each had a friend or two join us and it was not a problem. Plenty of room for all. The gated community is quiet and family friendly and I was very comfortable walking at night. At same time - Red Bar is less than two miles away. It is an easy walk to the beach and the beach was never crowded. And Blue Mountain Creamery is every bit as good as promised - worth the wait and you will make friends while in line. Can't wait to come back.

Nice house in a quiet neighborhood off the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, well appointed, and comfortable in a quiet and friendly neighborhood - great location that's out of the main hustle and bustle, but close enough to get to the action if you so choose. Just a short, easy walk to the beach (maybe 10 minutes), plus the owners provide bikes and scooters for your use, which my kids loved. Thanks, Anne!
