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 in 2012

Why compton proerties chose Gulf Shores

The children like this house the most because its closest to the beach.

What makes this unique

You have the beach on one side and the pier and bay on the other. Just a short walk to either.

The house was simply gorgeous enough room for 7 adults and 4 children very spacious... beautiful

  • 4 of 5

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!!!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 2 of 5

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.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, conveniently located, and plenty of room. We stayed in one of the owner's houses last year and hope to stay in the third house next year.
