For those who remember 'the way it used to be' this cottage will bring back fond memories of days on the bay. One of the original block houses from the '50's, this cottage features old iron beds with comfortable quilts, a boat-shaped fireplace, a sidebaord full of fiesta ware and a vintage pink tiled bathroom. The pier is just right for fishing and crabbing and kids will enjoy the tree fort across the street.

From this quiet out of the way street you would never guess that Gulf access is just a two minute drive away. The Bon Secour Wildlife preserve access offers free parking and a boardwalk over the snow white dunes. Not as crowded as the beaches up in town this pristine area is great for shelling, surf fishing, walking and sunning.

If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 15 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.

Shopping: Ten miles north of Gulf Shores in Foley, Alabama the Tanger Outlet Center features 120 name brand shopping options for the bargain hunter. Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Osh Kosh, SAS, Gap, Banana Republic, Anne Klein, and more.

Perfect for us and already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Lantana Cottage, but definitely not our last. In a nice, quiet neighborhood off Fort Morgan Rd on the bay side, this older cottage was clean and comfortable for our two dogs and us. We quickly settled in and it felt like home, so much so we didn't want to leave to come back to Michigan. New stove and microwave in the kitchen and pretty new washer and dryer were nice surprises. We loved being on the bay - have some great photos of sunrises and sunsets, pelican and herons and even some little geckos. Our neighbor shared with us "when the pelicans are swooping down to the water the pods of dolphins aren't far behind" and so we saw lots of dolphins too. We enjoyed working with Martha, the property manager - she quickly responded to requests and offered many suggestions regarding the area.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was roomy, charming, convenient yet secluded, and had gorgeous views out the window. Check in and out was super easy and efficient, management was very friendly and responsive, the cottage itself was spotlessly clean, and had very comfortable furnishings. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway...exceeded expectations!

Great location and dock

  • 4 of 5

If being outside 90% of the time is your thing - this is an awesome place. Nice quiet location with lots of fun things to do at the house and nearby. Garage is stocked with crab traps, boogie boards, and fishing poles. Was just the two of us but it would be a great place for kids. Since it was chilly when we were there we used the fireplace and felt very cozy. Martha, the property manager is great too - responsive and kind!

Left off one star because the interior and interior amenities (blinds, towels, kitchenware) could use some updating. We cook a lot and didn't enjoy using the older kitchen.

Peaceful and cozy

Nicely decorated very cozy older home. We had everything we needed including crab traps. We were greeted by 2 dolphins the first day. Our dog enjoyed his stay as well. Martha was very nice and easy to work with.
