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.

Golfer's Paradise: Who could ask for more than a beach house and top of the line golf courses! The Peninsula Golf Club is located just four miles East. 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.

History buffs will love historic Ft. Morgan just 11 miles west When you are finished there catch the ferry to Dauphin Island to see its sister Ft. Gaines or visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Cute, cozy cottage. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Close to activities, but far enough away for quiet times on the bay. Nicely decorated and immediately "comfortable."

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

WE enjoyed our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean. Our family enjoyed the dock. They caught crabs and fish. The cottage is old school cool, if your wanting a homey feeling this is the place. If you plan on eating out, plan on driving a ways to eat. That was the only down fall.

Beach House Charm

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lantana Cottage. It has the charm of an old beach house with all the comforts of home. I loved the little nooks. I could read or just watch the bay. So peaceful and beautiful! We usually try to get a 3 bedroom since our boys are older, but the divider screen in the second bedroom worked out perfectly. We couldn't have been more pleased with Lantana Cottage.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Lantana Cottage was the perfect get away for our family. The cottage was cozy and comfortable with a beautiful view of the bay. If you're looking for a newer updated Cottage this one may not be the best for you but it was perfect for our family. Close enough to restaurants and shopping but also just far enough away to be removed from the crowds! We loved it!
