Great home!

Our stay in this home was great. The view from the deck is beautiful. We were able to fish, crab, and swim in the lagoon. We brought our paddle boat and used it daily. The beach is very close. I would recommend this home to any family looking for a relaxing vacation.

Bill and Susan Bosworth

Owner's reply:

We are so glad you had a great stay at Blue Bayou! With the beach only 5 minutes away you really have the best of both worlds. The noise of the crowded condos is just far enough away and you have a quiet and serene place to call home while you are in Orange Beach. We hope you took advantage of the private fish cleaning station when you caught those fish and it's fun to cook them up on the built-in grill by the Bayou! Check out our calendar for next year as we are booking up!
Thanks, Bill & Susan

Our family stayed at Blue Bayou the first week of June. We had a great time. The owners have gone out of their way to make sure the house has all the comforts of home and then some. My teenagers loved the kayaks and we all enjoyed the pool. This is a beautiful and spacious home. Looking forward to next year.

Vacation of a lifetime!!

My family and I went to Orange Beach for the first time. We had the awesome pleasure of staying at the "Blue Bayou Home" and boy did we enjoy. We had a lot of serious issues that we were dealing with in our family. Naming a couple, death of my brother and husband, cancer, and report of fatal heart disease. We needed to get away and enjoy each other to embrace the gift of life. The home was able to accommodate our large group ( 18) without challenge. Everyone enjoyed fishing in the canal out back and swimming in the pool. The kayaks were a first for my sons which they completely loved. The beaches are very close to the home. At the end of the stay, reality began to set in and no one wanted to leave the home. This experience was truly a blessing for our family. It is truly a home away from home. We can't wait to come back next year! ( or maybe this year?) who knows!

Best Family Vacation Ever

Date of Stay: 06/25/11 Review Submitted: 07/03/11

I just returned home from Blue Bayou and can't wait to bring my family back next year! Blue Bayou is a beautiful home with ample room for a large family or multiple families. We had 13 people in our party, and we all slept comfortably....in fact, we had plenty of room to spare! The interior of the house looks like it belongs in a Pottery Barn magazine...a very laid back and comfortable beach style. We felt right at home when we walked through the door! Cotton Bayou offers such a great sense of community...especially for boat lovers! The neighbors are incredible and you can charter a fishing trip right next door! You wouldn't believe the size of the red snapper our guys came home with. My husband, an avid fisherman, said it was the best charter he's ever been on! The beautiful outdoor space, boat slip, private pool, and fabulous interior certainly make Blue Bayou a great find for families visiting Orange Beach. I am counting the days until next summer!

Absolutely wonderful!!!

We had a large group (12 adults + kids) stay at Blue Bayou and everyone LOVED it! It is such a beautiful home and very spacious. The neighbors on each side are very welcoming and friendly. We loved the pool and the recreation room. A lot of us went kayaking. (It is only 5 minutes to the ocean by kayak!) We even saw an alligator in the canal early one morning!!! There are several beaches within a 5 minute drive. All the beaches we went to were beautiful, not crowded, and had plenty of parking. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the trip and cannot wait until the next chance we have to stay there again.

Perfect Week!

Date of Stay: 08/20/11 Review Submitted: 09/14/11

We had the most perfect vacation at Blue Bayou! We have a large family with 8 grandchildren, so we definitely used the space. The description was very helpful, everything was totally clean, and the owners were so kind as we were inquiring about our stay. They also have wonderful neighbors who were helpful. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a family vacation. Parking is always an issue for all of us, but not here. We took boats. The guys loved the fishing and kids loved going to the little beach islands to look for seashells. We also got to see the dolphins playing. Great time was had by all! LuLu's and Tacky Jack's had great food! Thanks!

A Little Piece of Paradise

Date of Stay: 10/10/11 Review Submitted: 11/15/11

We so enjoyed our two wk. stay @ your lovely home! This clean and well kept home and yard (with plenty of parking) is located in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood. Bill & Susan have furnished it with everything you need, and then some. Each room is comfortably furnished, & the elevator made it possible for those unable to climb stairs to enjoy time with family & friends as well. For us this was a real plus!! The spacious home provided plenty of room to entertain & enjoy friends. I would certainly recommend this home. The owners were great to work with which was an added bonus. Maybe we will be able to stay with you again.

What a great place for a family reunion

Our family of 25 met at Blue Bayou and shared one of the most memorable Thanksgivings any of us have every had and this would not have been possible if not for William and Susan's beautiful and accomodating Blue Bayou Home! Everyone had plenty of room and bathrooms galore. of course only 15 of us stayed there, but most of the time we had 25 people there at any given time and everyone was comfortable, felt at home, and loved the view. Weather was great, the beaches in that area are beautiful and very close. We hope to go there again in the near future! Thanks Bill and Susan from all of us!

Amazing!

Our family spent a week enjoying this wonderful home. It it so large that my kids even got lost a few times. Plenty big enough for two large families. Orange Beach was beautiful. From out boat we could see the bottem15ft deep, off of the beach side. Lots of dolphins. The fishing was great. Caught a 40lb snapper. Whew... what a workout! We will definitely return and stay here again. The owners make everything seamless.

We had a wonderful time staying at Blue Bayou..the beach was conviently close, as were shops. The house had plenty of room to gather together or to get away from the group as needed. The property was very clean and safe, with wonderful neighbors. I am definitely recommending to friends, and hope to visit again!

Klein Family

Date of Stay: 03/24/12 Review Submitted: 04/12/12

Eight of us stayed at the house at the end of March. Six adults and 2 childres (ages 16 & 10) All of us had a blast. The house was very clean and the beds more comfortable than the ones we have at home. You do not find that often! Stores are conveniently located but you are off of the main drag so ever the spring breakers were not a problem for us! If you go, make sure you see the Blue Angels in training. The elevator was a blessing for loading in everything and avoiding the stairs. We had wild life in our backyard and chameleons on the deck! We had 3 large SUVs and had no trouble parking them on the drive.

Awesome!

We were blown away with how beautiful and relaxing our visit to the Blue Bayou vacation home was. A short drive from the airport, and a short canal ride to the gulf! We so enjoyed hanging out at the pool, fishing in the canal and cooking on the outdoor grill. Our guest rooms were more than comfortable, spacious and definitely set the scene for our vacation. We will be back next year with our kids! Thank you for helping us to create new family memories. Fondly, The Jameson's

Vacation of 2012

Guest: Jen (Oneonta, Alabama)
Date of Stay: 05/26/12 Review Submitted: 06/13/12

Our family of 13 really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bayou. The owners make the house so comfortable and clean, ready to move in for a weeks stay. We had grandchildren from ages 2 to 12. They used the pool, the kayacks, fished, played on the pool table, used the playstation, and used the hammock. Nearby activities that we enjoyed were Adventure Island with games, and rides. Also the children went to ride on go carts out on Hwy.59 called The Track. They loved Souvenier City, last but not least they visited Build a Bear at the shopping area at the Wharf. There are some really wonderful restaurants close by, one being Doc's, Original Oyster House, and Tacky Jack's. We made a lot of pictures, and this is a vacation that we will never forget. Thank you William and Susan!
