Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths plus outdoor shower, sleeps 6

For those who remember 'the way it used to be' this cottage will bring back fond memories of days on the bay. One of the original block houses from the '50's, this cottage features old iron beds with comfortable quilts, a boat-shaped fireplace, a sidebaord full of fiesta ware and a vintage pink tiled bathroom. The pier is just right for fishing and crabbing and kids will enjoy the tree fort across the street.

From this quiet out of the way street you would never guess that Gulf access is just a two minute drive away. The Bon Secour Wildlife preserve access offers free parking and a boardwalk over the snow white dunes. Not as crowded as the beaches up in town this pristine area is great for shelling, surf fishing, walking and sunning.

It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 15 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.

Shopping: Ten miles north of Gulf Shores in Foley, Alabama the Tanger Outlet Center features 120 name brand shopping options for the bargain hunter. Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Osh Kosh, SAS, Gap, Banana Republic, Anne Klein, and more.

Once you are finished there try the numerous antique stores in and around the area. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have numerous shopping venues for those looking for special items to take home as a reminder of their days by the sea.

Recreation and Special Events: The City of Gulf Shores has a fantastic recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, indoor track, ping pong and pool tables, water aerobics, yoga and other fitness classes. In the winter the city's Special Events Department sponsors an outstanding series of performances. Information can be found at the city website.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house is in an excellent, quiet location with a nice little pier extending out into the bay. The house itself is older but has just about everything you need and was comfortable and clean. There were fishing supplies and crab traps out in the building that were available for use, which was nice. The only thing I'd suggest to keep in mind is that while it sleeps six, there are two full beds in one bedroom divided by a partition (as seen in the pictures) with a shutter like bedroom door and the other bedroom has a wall made of shutters closing it off from the living room which means sounds travel well throughout the house. For a cozy, close knit stay in an unbeatable location it's great.

This cottage was a perfect place for our stay. It was like being back in time. The patio, pier, swing, and view made for a peaceful retreat. The cottage was very accommodating. We had a lovely time. Martha was the best!

Perfect for us and already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Lantana Cottage, but definitely not our last. In a nice, quiet neighborhood off Fort Morgan Rd on the bay side, this older cottage was clean and comfortable for our two dogs and us. We quickly settled in and it felt like home, so much so we didn't want to leave to come back to Michigan. New stove and microwave in the kitchen and pretty new washer and dryer were nice surprises. We loved being on the bay - have some great photos of sunrises and sunsets, pelican and herons and even some little geckos. Our neighbor shared with us "when the pelicans are swooping down to the water the pods of dolphins aren't far behind" and so we saw lots of dolphins too. We enjoyed working with Martha, the property manager - she quickly responded to requests and offered many suggestions regarding the area.
