About Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores

New owners George and Trudi bought this cottage with an eye to retire here in a few years. Until then they want to share it with others who want to get away for some quiet time near the water. As the "parents" of fuzzy four legged "children" hey know just how hard it can be to find a pet friendly place to spend a vacation.

Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores chose Gulf Shores

Trudi and George have a daughter, son-law-and beautiful grandchildren in Gulf Shores and they love to visit as often as possible. As for the home, there is not a more beautiful spot on the bay - the view, the old oaks with Spanish moss hanging from their limbs, the gentle lap of the water, the spacious yard, the quiet setting and peaceful surroundings simply spoke of home. The large yard and distance from the busy highway also made this home a perfect spot for children and pets.

What makes this cottage unique

This property offers a guest a different view of Gulf Shores. Quiet and secluded under old oaks this home is far away from the vacation rental crowd. Guests experience what it is like to live along the bay on the island's Ft Morgan peninsula. Sunsets are unparalleled from the pier it shares with its two neighbors. For those who want to play in the Gulf waters the beach at the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is almost across the street. A two minute drive will take you to its pristine shore where you can swim, fish, walk, shell and bask in the rays. Located about nine miles from town it is a quick trip to the center of the action, shops, restaurants, and attractions if you can tear yourself away from the front porch.

Notes:
DATA! There is only one Internet provider available at Bay Leave; data is limited and costly. In an effort to increase Internet speed we buy 5 gig each month. However, when a guest uses all or most of that data during a stay the Internet is painfully slow for everyone else the rest of the month. Because many of our guests use their own data and refrain from streaming while here we feel it is not fair to raise our rental prices to cover data some people do not use. Therefore, we charge for use above 1 gig while you are in residence. The charge is deducted from your deposit at the end of your stay at our cost of $10 per gig. To avoid charges you can use data during free hours (3am-8am), use your own device data, or refrain from steaming movies, videos, music, etc. The Internet is still free and the small amount of data related to checking email and using your device minimally should not affect your bill. If your use exceeds 1 gig you will be charged at our cost of $10 per gig

Came to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. We wanted something nice and comfortable. The house was warm, clean and inviting. I would recommend to anyone.

Cool little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the neat cottage, Bay Leave! It was in a quiet area that provided good relaxation! It was also not far from a public beach that allowed dogs. The information that was in the notebook was very helpful to be able to find restaurants and activities nearby. We appreciated that we could bring our dog Wagner.

Peaceful Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property!!! Everything was as it says in the description and what was shown in the photos. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking and baking necessities. The towels and linens were fresh and the bed was super comfy. The owner even supplied beach towels and chairs! Martha was extremely responsive to any questions we had. Would love to stay again!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Most relaxed vacation ever. The property was close enough to restaurants and shopping but far enough away to be totally quiet and peaceful. The screened porch was phenomenal and the house was extremely well maintained and equipped. The leasing agent (Martha) offered advice and assistance beyond her job description. We joked they may have to get a warrant and sheriff to make us leave. If you want to be in the tourist mix don't stay here, but if you want peace and quiet you could not do better!

Home was very clean and well equipped. The fenced yard was perfect for our pup. Kids loved putting the crab traps out off the dock!! Booking process was easy!
