About compton proerties
I'm now 71 and live in north Alabama half the time and in Gulf Shores half the time. This the second of 4 houses I have built in Sunwatch Cottages. We love this house because its the closest to the beach. My wife and I have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. We all stay in this house quiet a bit.
compton proerties purchased this Guest House in 2012
Why compton proerties chose Gulf Shores
The children like this house the most because its closest to the beach.
What makes this Guest House unique
You have the beach on one side and the pier and bay on the other. Just a short walk to either.

Wonderful home and location
We stayed here for spring break with almost our entire family. Fourteen of us in all, and the layout was great. Each family had a bedroom, and there was one where all the kids who wanted to could stay together. The pool was nice and the lagoon area had a very nice beach and was a treasure trove for the little kids, finding crabs and making great memories. The gulfside beach was only two minutes away, and the road we had to cross was not busy, a concern we had as we arrived. Of course it did not hurt that the weather was great, as we all could enjoy the pool and the gulf.
Great Location! Wonderful views & house has plenty of room!
great rental house
This beach house was perfect for our family. Well-stocked and close to the beach. Much time spent at the nearby pool
The house was simply gorgeous enough room for 7 adults and 4 children very spacious... beautiful
The first two days we had problems with the refrigerator it was a little touch and go lost some groceries. Miscommunication between myself and the contact people some not so friendly. Once the issue was resolved we were able to enjoy our vacation. We had a blast from the pool to the beach and back to the house. Such a nice home to come back to. I would love to stay here again. The house was so spacious and the decor was very beautiful... this was some of my family members first time at the beach and they truly enjoyed their experience... two thumbs up.
Beautiful, spacious home in a great location!!!
My entire family (7 adults, 9 children) spent a week at Laura Kate and we absolutely loved it! The house itself is very spacious, and having king-sized beds and an attached bathroom with every bedroom really gave each of our separate families a place to call our own. The downstairs master bedroom is huge, and with the trundle bed we were able to sleep several of the kids in there with grandma. The bunk room was a great place for the kids to do their thing and hang out after the day's activities. I was a little worried about not staying directly on the beach, but it is a very short walk over. We were actually in the perfect location because a lot of our group spent so much time at the lagoon fishing and finding hermit crabs or at the pool. Fun tip: you can catch blue crab off of the pier all day long, which the kids found very entertaining.
If you're looking for things to do, our group certainly did a variety of activities. Our favorites were Alligator Alley, the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Fort Morgan, Sea-N-Sudz, Fish River Grill, Flora-Bama and The Pink Pony Pub. Also, the Gulf State Park Nature Center and Pier were a great cheap stop for the little kids. So much to do and see in the area, and this house was the perfect home base for all of it.
There were a couple of very minor maintenance issues, but there was absolutely nothing that would stop me from renting this house again for a wonderful family vacation. Also, we cooked a full meal for 16 people nearly every night, and the house was fully stocked with every utensil we needed to do so. If you have a large group and need a great place to stay, this is the house for you!
Not quite what we'd hoped for
We had several maintenance issues including a ceiling fan literally falling from the ceiling and breaking in the master bedroom, towel rack falling out of the wall, refrigerator and freezer not working well (ice cream and Popsicles were melted and other frozen food was thawed), deck railing on main balcony deemed unsafe by maintenance man, and door handle falling off bedroom doors. We had to call owner several times with little help. When we did reach turnkey maintenance company they were quick to respond. It was hard to prepare meals for our group of 12 as the BBQ grill was wobbly with one leg giving out, the pots and pans were nearly impossible to use because everything stuck /burned on the very cheap cookware. There were just so many little things that I would not stay here again. The location to the beach was a positive and the pool and bay side were nice as well. This could be a nice place but definitely needs some upkeep on the house and upgrades to cooking equipment.
This is a new house in a special location, in that its only about 400 ft between the ocean and bay.You can sunbath on the beach, or fish on your own pier, with a covered gazebo with picknick table, and benches to relax on.It also has a boat slip. It has golf coures nearby, jet skiing, paragliding,waterparks, amusement parks,and many mores activities, and recreational places.
