Why Shelly and Doug West chose Fairhope
A Fairhope Find is an original Fairhope Cottage with many vintage fixtures and original artwork by some of Fairhope’s local artists. Built by the Grandson of E.B. Gaston, the home sits back off of the street with oyster shell remnants still in the driveway. It sits on a lot and a half and is completely fenced in. This type Cottage with southern charm is becoming harder to find these days in Fairhope, but it’s what makes Fairhope so unique. Writers and Artists will be inspired by the quaint and quiet Gayfer Cottage dripping with southern charm. Families will enjoy the enormous tree-lined back yard from the large deck. A great place to retreat to after a day of shopping in downtown Fairhope or a day at the beach. We're just a short drive to the outlet malls in Foley or the beaches in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Mobile is across the bay and offers the original Mardi Gras, the Battleship and rich history to explore. But, you may not even want to leave Fairhope once you arrive - in fact, many people who visit decide to make Fairhope their home.

Great weekend in Fairhope!!!
This is a great 2 bedroom house with lots of space in the kitchen and living area. Very clean. Wonderful fenced in yard for the dogs. It has a nice little back deck for relaxing and great location to downtown Fairhope and the bay. We would definitely recommend this home and we would love to return. Thank you for a great weekend.
Perfect for what we needed!
Our stay was short, but this cottage offered everything we needed. Great fenced in yard for our dog. Owners were easy to communicate with. Perfect location.
Quaint older home.
Very clean, well equipped quaint older home convenient to downtown Fairhope. Owner was very good with communication. I also left a few things in the closet and she was gracious enough to ship them to me. The only reason I’m giving 4 stars is because of security. I would suggest updating locks and maybe adding a security system. There were about 6 windows unlocked when we arrived. Also, the back door was left open for our arrival and keys left on kitchen table. Other than that issue, we enjoyed our stay.
We stayed at for 6 nights at this charming cottage! Perfect location to everything! We brought our family dogs along for our vacation and they loved the yard! We are hoping to stay real soon again here we loved it so much!! ❤️
Charming and delightful, cozy and comfortable, this cottage is awesome. We needed a place to stay with our pets while we closed on our house. So glad we were able to stay here. Furnished very nicely with everything you could need. The owners are great to work with. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay.
Better than Florida🌴
This Fairhope Cottage is close to everything! We rode our bicycles everywhere. Fairhope is such a special place. We couldn’t have asked for more. The beds were extremely comfortable too. Hope to visit again real soon...
