Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths plus outdoor shower, sleeps 6

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.

It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. 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.

Once you are finished there try the numerous antique stores in and around the area. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have numerous shopping venues for those looking for special items to take home as a reminder of their days by the sea.

Recreation and Special Events: The City of Gulf Shores has a fantastic recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, indoor track, ping pong and pool tables, water aerobics, yoga and other fitness classes. In the winter the city's Special Events Department sponsors an outstanding series of performances. Information can be found at the city website.

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.

It was good, it had most everything we needed. We kept finding baby lizards in the bathroom.

  • 3 of 5

The place had what we needed, the wind was very strong so we didn't get to enjoy the fishing like we wanted. Not certain we would rent there again. The unit needs some updates as well as the outside needs to be cleaned up and spruced up a bit.

Cute, cozy cottage. Loved it!

Close to activities, but far enough away for quiet times on the bay. Nicely decorated and immediately "comfortable."
