I arrived at the cottage after dark and although I was given a code to get in the lock box would not open and I called the owner with no success of reaching her, nor did she ever call me back to make sure I got into the house. Thankfully the gentleman next door came over to help with with...

Management response:

Hello Dorothy. I’m sorry you’re disappointed. The lockbox, while a little complicated to operate, isn’t rusty. The furniture, while at the end of a busy season & probably needing a refresh isn’t stained. And while I am still planning to send your one night payment back to you you HAVE received your full security deposit. The payment is not allowed...

After taking our deposit which included 100.00 for our dogs we found out though a friend that dogs were not allowed on the beach. We had to cancel our trip to the cozy cottage. Both Kat H and trip advisor would not return our deposit of almost 1000.00. It would had nice if Kat H had let us know the...

Had you stayed with us you would have had a wonderful time & I could have told you which beaches allowed dogs & where our fabulous dog parks are as well as the dog-friendly restaurants. Most of our guests are traveling with their dogs. The public beach policies for Orange Beach & Gulf Shores are on the cities' websites. It's...

About the neighbourhood
Gulf Shores is fairly well spread out to be such a small town. The grocers are about 5 miles or more away from the beach. Our fave is The BeachHouse Kitchen & Cocktails right by the cottage. Other favorites include Mikee's, Desoto's, Lulu's (especially with children!), The Ruby Slipper for breakfast, Fisher's in Orange Beach Marina if you want a very special evening out, and The Pink Pony.

The legendary Flora~Bama is east to the Florida line & has amazing music. If you go, you should really try a Bushwhacker. They're a house specialty! The Hangout is also a great spot for music & the atmosphere is great too! They have activities for kids but I would suggest adults only for the nighttime experience there.

There is great history too!
Getting around
Because Gulf Shores is so spread out we suggest that you have a vehicle to get around the area. There is excellent cab service if you just don't want to drive (or if you had one too many Bushwhackers or Painkillers) and Ike's on the Beach rents bikes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards & provides beach service (chairs & umbrellas).
Car advised
How to get there
Gulf Shores is directly on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Driving 65 South you take Exit 37 & drive until you have to turn left, right or get wet! Driving from the east or west you take I-10 to the Loxley exit & do the same. There is a new beach expressway exit on I-10 you can use as well.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 0.2 km.
