About Dianne Mercer

I bought the lot in 2005 and wanted to build my home here. The apartment was completed in October of 2013. I was born and raised in Alabama but moved to Houston and was there for 17 years. I missed being in Alabama and close to the beach. I have been in Fairhope now for 21 years and I love it here. You can walk everywhere from here, downtown shopping, art galleries or down to the bay. There is a great art community here and everyone is so friendly. It's just a great old historic town.

Dianne Mercer purchased this apartment in 2013

Charming apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our weekend getaway. Beautifully appointed, light and bright and in the heart of beautiful downtown Fairhope. We were able to walk to Fairhope‘s many shops and wonderful restaurants. There is a great playground/park right next-door, which would make it ideal for those traveling with children. Only one block away from a small grocery store where we were able to stock up on necessities for the weekend. The owners were outstanding, and very prompt in replying to messages. We would definitely stay here again.

A couple of seniors, a quick birthday get-a-way, and a charming town -- this in town apartment has it all down to the last utensil. You can eat at one of the many eateries or bring home shrimp to cook. The 6 steps from car to door was a winner..The property itself was comfortable,cheery, and very nice.

Modern intown apartment, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed the moment we opened the door. The apartment was spotless and very well decorated. The location and parking were so convenient. We could walk to all of the shops and restaurants. The only snags we encountered was a slow draining shower and there was no travel shampoo/conditioner. Regardless, I would still highly recommend this rental to others.

Perfect for our little getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this apartment which should say a lot. We love the location as it is in the middle of the charming business district of Fairhope. So many shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The unit is perfect for 2 people. The owners are nearby just in case you need anything. Diane was very responsive with reservations and questions. If we go back, we will stay again!

This apartment is in the middle of town, near all the good restaurants, shopping, coffee shops . It is three blocks from from the bay, beach and pier. Google maps does not show our location correctly. Please refer to the VRBO map that is on this website. Directions to the apartment: turn into the parking lot beside Fairhope Inn off Church St. Drive straight back , and you will see a two story white building. The apartment is on the bottom right. There is a number 6 on the building.
