Pat purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Pat chose Gulf Shores
We bought The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage because we love the Gulf Shores area and like to get away from the hustle and bustle but also be close to the action if we choose. We also love having the pool when we get tired of playing at the beach. We have the best of all worlds.

Our cottage is located in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and there are a number of ‘critters’ protected in the refuge. I can assure you that none of those critters occupy the inside of the cottage. ☺ However, you will on occasion hear them underneath and around the unit. This ultra-sonic repeller does not harm the critters but it does help in keeping them from finding a home underneath the unit. Please let me know if the repeller stops operating (you should see a red light on the front of it which indicates it is running.) Thank you very much and enjoy your stay!!!

Wonderful family getaway
We stayed in the beach cottage for two weeks with our five young children (ages 8,6,3,2, 4 months) and it was a perfect fit for our family! The boys loved the bunk room. The pool was beautiful and easy to find. The beach was a bit far for us to walk, so we drove. The only thing that would make the cottage better is if it came with a golf cart to use to get to the beach. We would even be willing to pay a bit more for that. Also, Sassy Bass restaurant (.6 miles away) has wonderful dinners and a delicious breakfast buffet.
Rental was perfect. Clean and inviting. Exactly like it said it would be.
We had a wonderful time here. Very clean, had everything we needed. It’s a little of a walk to the beach but we didn’t mind the distance.
Walmart is a couple of minutes away. We would def. be back ! Thanks for everything:)
Gone Family 2019
Feom the moment we pulled up to this property we knew things were going to be good. The house was spotless and basic amenties that may have been needed weee laid out for us. We loved hacing the grill available to us right on site. The pool was beautiful abd enjoyed by the children and adults. I traveled from Biloxi and my friends from San Antonio. It was the perfect get away from work. Aside from a few rain showers we loced it!!!
Great Spot For A Beach Vaca
The beach cottage was a perfect fit for us and our 4 kids and one adult son. It's decorated beautifully with everything you could want. It's quiet and we enjoyed the occasional sightings of wildlife. The beach access isn't too far and once you are on the beach you won't want to leave. If you have never been to Gulf Shores and are considering it, just go!! The sand is beautiful and the water was clear and actually warmer than The Domincan trip we just took. We will most definitely be back!!
Definitely a repeat vacation
We had such a great time! I feel like this place is a hidden gem. If you don’t want to be in the middle of the crowds, but want to be close enough to drive into town for dinner, then this is the place for you. Plenty of room for our family to stretch out and I didn’t have to worry if our kids were a little loud like I felt we would have to if we were in a high-rise condo. Beach was close and gorgeous all week. Loved it! Plan to stay here again!
