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

A native of Mobile, Alabama I grew up on two shores spending many days as a child on Pleasure Island and then traveling back and forth on summer days and weekends as a teen and young adult to bask in the sun on the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores. In 1990 I bought my home on Little Lagoon where I raised my family while teaching high school in the area.

Now after retiring from nearly 30 years in education I enjoy inviting others to share the pleasures of the island and the Ft. Morgan peninsula. I am a licensed Realtor in the State of Alabama and proudly work with Exit Realty, Gulf Shores

I own this home jointly with my daughter Marguerite who is a Coast Guard search and rescue helocopter pilot, former Navy helicopter pilot and graduate of the United States Naval Academy. While she and her husband can not be here to help with the management she always enjoys coming home for a stay in her grandmother's house.

This house is one of several I rent to guests from around the world. Some I own and some belong to friends and neighbors.

I have made many friends and always enjoy making new ones. It is my pleasure to see others enjoy a relaxing vacation in a home that is just right for them.

Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores purchased this cottage in 2005

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

This property is special to me because it was my mother's home. All of her life she dreamed of living on the water and at 78 she designed and built this bayfront home. She enjoyed spending the last five years of her life quilting in the front room where she had a beautiful view of Mobile Bay and lots of light from the many windows. She loved sharing her home with others and always enjoyed visitors. I know she would be happy that guests come from all over the world to sit on her front porch and watch the dolphins play. I take pride in the continued care of my mother's home.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests at this home will see a different side of Gulf Shores. Located on a secluded, quiet, cul de sac this home is truly away from it all yet at the same time close to the beautiful white sandy Gulf beach. Our guests enjoy sitting on the covered dock watching seagulls, pelicans, and dolphins play. They enjoy the shaded screen porch and beautiful moss covered oaks as well as panoramic views and incredible sunsets over Mobile Bay.

We experienced a wonderful stay at Meme's. The location on the bay was beautiful. The house is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The house was impeccably clean and well stocked. Loved the versitility of the dock and screened in porch for relaxation of the water. Thanks for the great vacation!

Meme's Cottage is a place of love and comfort that you do not want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

From the time you walk in the door your just feel love and comfort taking over you. You immediately become peaceful and stress free. It is decorated in a loving, calm and homey way. It reaches out to you and makes you never want to leave.

Love every part of the stay. From the claw foot tub baths every night. To coffee on the pier and rocking on the porch. To the beach being so close on Mobil Street. To going to Gulf Shores and back to the solitude of the cottage nestled under the humongous oak trees dripping in Spanish moss.

We will definitely be back to this sweet cottage on the bay. It is fully equipped for relaxation. I truly would move in tomorrow!❤️🐾🠠Our dogs Bailey & Brandy were especially grateful for the fenced in front yard and the squirrels you provided for their amusement!

Quiet, relaxing, wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed Sept. 8-12, 2016. The house is beautiful and clean inside. The windows in the living room face the bay, providng tons of natural light and a beautiful view. I had all the cookware and dishes I needed for making meals. Kitchen is super organized, loved that! Location was super quiet! Kayak launch was just down the street. Many opportunities for great pictures.

Thanks for a great stay.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Meme's Bay Cottage was one of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed. We stayed during Labor Day weekend and the weather was kind of dreary, but we didn't even care. Sitting on the screened porch and watching the water and listening to the sounds of the birds, frogs and fish jumping essentials so relaxing! We saw a pod of dolphins one day and another day during a rainstorm we saw a lonely dolphin swimming across the Bay. The house is decorated beautifully and furnished with essentials beyond expectations. Other reviews are right. Pictures do not do this place justice! And a lot of the furnishings have been updated from what the pictures show. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. And Martha, the owner, was great too. She always replied very quickly to any questions and made the whole experience easy. When we go back to Gulf Shores this is definitely the place where we will be staying!

An amazing cottage rental

  • 5 of 5

Meme's Bay Cottage is the perfect getaway for a short or extended stay. I was fortunate to learn about it while searching for places that were dog friendly. When we arrived, the first thing noticed was that it was "out of the way" in terms of peace and quiet but just a few short miles from Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key. The front yard was fenced in and is perfect for any mid size to small dog. The inside of the residence was extremely clean and well maintained. The rear of the house faces Mobile Bay and nothing was better than sitting on the back screened in porch or on the actual dock with your morning coffee. Just less than two miles away is access to the gulf and it's beaches. This particular location is in a wildlife preserve so there were no other people around the area. We had the whole beach to ourselves as far as you could see. It truly is a wonderful place and Martha was absolutely pleasant to work with. We will definitely be back!
