“Exactly as advertised.”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

These cottages are small (as advertised), but served our needs perfectly. Having a washer and dryer was great. Everything you need is there. The cottage is very clean and premises well kept. Owners are extremely nice. We will be back!

“Doesn't Get Any Better Than This”

We could search for weeks in the Gulf Shores area and every time we would come back here because it is tranquil, immaculate, and a perfect location for us. The cottage is just right in size, the kitchen is equipped with most everything needed to cook meals while here, and the price is right. Phil allows personal, private space and is available should you need assistance. The use of his and Toni's private dock is a pleasant addition to one's stay. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Quite, clean, cozy, laid back cottage. No parking problems, picnic table, shady BBQ area are included. The best part is the owner, Phil Turner is a true southern gentleman. He could not be more accomodating.

“Great place”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Located just outside of town. Very quiet and tranquil. The cottages are practically new. Everything is supplied even though I took my own flannelette sheets. Washer and dryer are located in each cottage.

“Charming cottage in uniquely Southern setting”

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bon Secour. The location is perfect--minutes from sightseeing, the beach, charter fishing, and shopping. Gulf Shores is a wonderful beach community and the state of Alabama has done a wonderful job scattering facilities along the waterfront to provide recreational opportunities to the public. Phil, the cottage's owner, is so attentive to every detail of his guest's visit and we really did appreciate that. He is friendly without being intrusive and would do anything in the world for you. We certainly hope to return here.
