Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I needed a place that would house my family and my girlfriend's family. We were so thrilled to have found this place. The price is reasonable and the cottage is lovely. This is one-half of a duplex cottage. The surrounding area is quiet and the beach that we had access to was absolutely lovely. We were there during the first week of March, and even though the weather was iffy, we were able to enjoy the beach much of the time. The area was very quiet, even though we were surrounded by cottages in this community. The tennis court was in great condition, and the pool and hot tub were quite nice. I was happy that it was down a ways on the peninsula, because the kids on Spring Break didn't seem interested in leaving the condos on Gulf Shores. The queen I slept in was very comfortable. The sofa bed was a little bit uncomfortable for the teen boy that slept there, but that was easily remedied by putting the mattress on the floor. The manager, Kimberly, was lovely to work with when I was planning the trip. We plan to come back to this place. We are grateful to have found it.

A great time was had by all!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great location. The description by the owner(Connie)and her manager (Kim) were dead on. What a lovely place. In the mornings, you could hear the surf crashing onto shore and the birds singing in the trees. Everything was just as advertised. Clean as could be. All appliances worked, the TV was great (flat screens in three of the four rooms) and the beds were very comfortable.

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,

Mike & Jackie

The cottage was beautiful, cozy and welcoming. The "Rookery" was a terrific area, very well maintained. Pool and spa were beautiful and clean. The location was peaceful, quiet, yet near enough to go "into town" and have fun. Good beach access. I plan on staying there again next summer!!

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 7 and the house was perfect for us. First of all the interior
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

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the beach cottage and felt at home right away! The house was perfect for my family. The decor was beautiful, it was clean, and close to everything we were wanting to do. We were close to the beach, and could sit there for hours enjoying the waves and sand. If the beach wasn't what we wanted, the pool was great, and close to the house.
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!
