About the area

The home is located on the western end of Pleasure Island. It is a 19 mile drive back to Highway 59, so the home is away from the hustle and the bustle of the extreme summer crowds, but close enough to get there, enjoy the sights and return to peace, serenity and the BEACH! The historical Fort Morgan is only two miles away, while shopping, amusement parks, movie theaters, bowling, and additional restaurants are approximately 20 minutes away. There are four restaurants withing five miles of the cottage and a convenient store. A small marina is located within one-half mile, and the fort boasts a fishing pier for great catches and crabbing.

“Baycation was great!!”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

The Baycation really was a wonderful place to stay for the whole family. There were nine of us and we had plenty of room not to get in each other's way. The kids loved kayaking and fishing for crabs while my uncle Stanley loved fishing off the bulkhead. I personally enjoyed looking at the beautiful view from the huge deck and lounging underneath the house where the swing and hammock were. My aunt and cousins found a lot of shopping opportunities in Gulf Shores and Foley (they love thrift stores and outlet malls). It was fun for the whole gang. Thank you Kim for making your "beach and bay rentals" site so easy to use, and making PayPal available for payment ... YAY!! You are the bomb!!! Glenda

Owner's reply: Glenda, your family is welcome any time! I loved the photos you sent and glad you were able to relax and enjoy that wonderful sound of the water coming ashore! There is nothing like it! Thank you for the kind words in your review. You painted a great picture of the vacation with the description. It is as if I were there! Kim

“Family Fun”

The house was just right for our group. The girls swam right behind the house. The water is shallow, but deep enough. Good location for the dogs. Tacky Jacks and the Sassy Bass were okay. Wish we had stayed longer.

I can't say enough good things about this house. It absolutely felt like home. It is worth the drive! We traveled with another couple and never felt like we were cramped. The layout allows for communal living space and meals but private bedrooms. Our dog also enjoyed her stay. There is ample room for a large crate or two. The dog's only complaint is the prickly burrs that grow in the grass around here. But that's just part of being on the coast. I absolutely loved everything. It got cold during our stay, but the heat worked well to keep us warm. The seafood market by the Dollar General is great, too.

Owner's reply: Thanks Virginia! You and your family are welcome any time. I struggle with sand spurs, but working on something now to get rid of them. Kim

“BAYCATION is the place to VACATION! :)”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2014

My friend and I were looking for a place to stay last minute and luckily came across this cute house. and when i say last minute, i mean hours before we decided to leave. Kim was amazing at working with us and was very accommodating. We only stayed a few nights but the drive from Central AR was worth it. The bay view was beautiful and peaceful. The house is in almost its own little area that was secluded from cars and foot traffic. The sunsets were great to watch off the large deck. We brought our two small dogs and they were in heaven. It literally took a minute to drive over to the gulf side access. The dogs loved the beach and so did we. My friend grilled out one night while I relaxed in the hammock. The layout of the house is wonderful also. Very open with bedrooms on separate sides. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed when it came to utensils and cook ware. Unfortunately, we didn't get to take the kayak out. We were too lazy :) this was one of the best trips i've been on in a while. i highly recommend any of Kims houses. Thanks again, Kim!

“Frosty in Alabama”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2014

Baycation was a great rental. All the furniture was very comfortable and equipment was as advertised We had a problem with the internet access but that was fixed with a new system as quickly as could be expected. Landlords don't have control of weather and that was our biggest problem in Jan 2014. Alabama beach houses are not designed for those conditions. The floors were cold. Kim was great and were very happy with the area.

“Grape Escape / Great Escape”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2011

We enjoyed everything about our stay at this lovely house. The location was great. Just a short walk to the beach. Away from all the traffic and hussle of the downtown gulf shores area. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. Would recommend to anyone.
