A great time was had by all!!
We were highly impressed with the customer service of Kim, the manager of the property. Between emails and txt messaging, Kim was available day and some nights. She really went beyond the call of duty.
We will recommend this property to anyone who wants a comfortable, quiet and wonderful vacation in Gulf Shores Alabama.
Thank you Connie and Kim,

Very relaxing and charming cottage
was even more beautiful that the pictures we had seen. The decor was gorgeous.
There were t.v.'s in every room which was great for 5 kids. The community pool was great and we were only walking distance to a private beach. There were beach chairs,umbrellas and beach toys provided. A screened porch was terrific to relax on
rocking in rocking chairs in the morning. It was amazing! Can't wait to go back!
Best Vacation Ever
We enjoyed touring Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines. The ferry ride to Dauphin Island was great and we even saw dolphins swimming! All the restaurants were great also, Lamberts, LuLu's,Tacky Jacks 2, Ft Morgan Pizza. On the days it did rain we still had a great time! This was a great get away and hope to be back really soon!
