The house was perfect and Cheryle was awesome. She made everything about our week long stay easy. It was a so close to the beach that we could see and hear it. Will definitely return.

Pawfect home-away-from-home at quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Paw-Paw's. Cheryle, the Owner, made sure we had everything we needed to feel at home and comfortable. 5-star hospitality! It felt like our friend was letting us use her beach house for the week. ;-) This home is adorably decorated and so nice. It was very clean when we arrived, and had everything, and I mean everything, we could have needed already there. When we return next year, I'll be able to pack a.lot.less! The location is just steps from the beach and the neighborhood was quiet. We did meet some residents there and they were kind and friendly. We saw a Blue Angel practicing over the beach on Tues & Wed and the kiddos loved that-me, too! It's a short and lovely drive into Gulf Shores, but far enough out that you feel like you're in a secret hideaway. It was a perfect, peaceful, relaxing week at the beach. We only had one problem, we didn't have another few weeks to stay! :-) Travel tip - this would be a terrific place for a family reunion or friends' get-away because they own 3 houses in a row - they are all super-clean and very comfy & cute. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

****Thanks for the tip about Gulf Shores Seafood Market, Cheryle! The owners were so friendly & the food (crab & shrimp steamed to-go) was delicious.

Clean and comfortable family home, less than 1 block to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much, we decided to extend our vacation! Cheryle was easy to work with, and we arrived to find the house clean and well stocked. This unit is exactly as reflected in the listing with many extras provided - ample cleaning and paper supplies, travel size toiletries, and everything you need to relax on the nearby beach. Our pets were comfortable and we all enjoyed relaxing on the porches; you can even hear the waves from there when the surf’s up! Kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals, and there are also good local restaurants within a few miles. We can’t wait to come back to Paw Paw’s Place!
