About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

FLEXIBLE DATES! September -May, owner may accept less than a 7 night rental. KC's Cove is directly situated across from Mobile Bay (St. Andrew's Bay) and has a magnificent view from the north side of the house, including both the main and upper decks. The view of the Gulf of Mexico sparkles so brilliantly from the back (south) deck, and with the brilliant white sand, your sunshades will always be in order. Picture yourself sitting on the back deck soaking up the sun, while hearing the sound of the pounding surf, drinking in the smell of the warm salt air, and hearing the call of the laughing sea gulls circling above, with a lone Pelican slowly lumbering past.... You don't want to sit in the sun? Well, there is a lovely concreted area underneath the house with a picnic table, a large swing, and room to relax out of the sun but still hearing the surf, seeing the beach, smelling the salt air and feeling the constant Gulf southerly breeze blowing against your face.

KC's two (2) story, 1500 sq. ft., three (3) bedroom, two and a half (2.5) baths, full size washer/dryer, with a fully equipped kitchen---is all you need for your beach get away. Conveniently situated just a few 100 yards from the actual beach (beach side), and the stunning Mobile Bay on the other---with small boat access at the natural boat launch...and a birding site to boot! Wow! KC's not only offers wonderful views, but also with updated accommodations at an affordable price! What else do you need? Well, with granite counter tops, driftwood hardwood flooring, updated bathroom fixtures, new mattresses, and a well equipped kitchen; it is not only comfortable, but is just plain out cute with a pleasing beach and water themed decor. KC's is all you need for your party of eight (8) guests or less to have a great time at the beach.

About owner/property manager

KC is originally from her heart's home, Mobile, but now resides in Michigan. Despite being long distant, KC is the manager of this property and with expert and reliable local help, she is able to efficiently manage from afar. She wants you to have a great time, make many lasting 'great' memories, and really wants you to 'want' to come back to KC's in LA (Lower Alabama) for your next vacation! KC is readily available via phone, email, and can be there in a day....if needed!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 1995

Why owner/property manager chose Gulf Shores

KC's Cove offers it all; from the spectacular views, to privacy, to easy access to the beach, fishing, birding, swimming, sun bathing, restaurants, boating, and the list goes on. KC's pricing is straight forward with no hidden fees, and best of all is affordable with most all the benefits of beach front homes.

What makes this house unique

KC fell in love with this home because of the outstanding views of Mobile Bay. The view from either side of the house is ever changing, as during the summer, there are spectacular sunset views over the Bay; during the winter, there are spectacular sunset views over the Gulf. Hearing the sound of the surf, the laugh of the sea gulls, the prehistoric look of the pelicans, the smell of the salt air...don't you just want to be there? Have a small boat? Well, there is a 'natural' boat launch site directly across the road, which also is a certified birding site, for all of you bird watchers. All you have to do is sit on any of 3 decks and get a different perspective on the beauty of the area. Watching the boats on the Bay, wandering down the road a piece to historic Fort Morgan, standing on the end of the peninsula at the mouth of the Mobile Bay, and watching the ferry boat go past on its way to Dauphin Island--there's nothing better. What can be said? Nothing, except you need to come and experience for yourself a vacation at KC's Cove!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with your assessment of my home having dated furnishings, as my living and dining room furniture are new and were purchased within this past year and a half, as well as the furnishings in one of the upstairs bedrooms. The TV's are all flat screen, as well as all of the mattresses/box springs are new, and the appliances have been updated, including the washer/dry, ceiling fans, along with upgraded marble counter tops, new bathroom fixtures/mirrors, etc., wood flooring, as well as other new miscellaneous pieces of furniture here and there. Also, I just installed a brand new heating/cooling system this year, including duct work throughout the house, although I know my guests would not realize that whole expensive system was brand new. Irrespective, the on line photographs of my home depict exactly how it will appear upon your arrival, of which several of my other guests who have also left reviews, have pointed out they were happy the pictures were representative of what they found upon their arrival to my home. Happily, you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful views from my home, and, again, your business is appreciated.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect if you want a private, romantic getaway, or just a soothing, relaxing location. The water of both Gulf and bay are in sight, and it's a short, easy walk to the beach. This charming house is well-supplied and comfortable. The combination of the lovely house and the location with bay views and close proximity to an uncrowded beach have made this a favorite with everyone in our family, including a brand new family member who now also loves this house.

Beautiful Gulf of Mexico Beaches

  • 5 of 5

We loved our February/early March vacation at K.C.'s Cove. The house is just a short walk to the beautiful sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Mobile Bay is on one side of the house and you can see the Gulf and hear the surf from the South facing deck. There is plenty of room on both decks to soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful view. The pictures are very accurate and the house is well-supplied with kitchen essentials. The beach here was very quiet in February, but was getting a little busier in early March. I would recommend this house for couples or families. We hope to return in the future.

Peaceful, spacious, beachy!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a month snow birding on the property with my husband and two small dogs. The property is well cared for and decorated, with loads of indoor and outdoor space to spread out. Owner is communicative and responsive. Some helpful tidbits: for most intents and purposes, the house is beachside. It's set back a bit - a short walk across the street - BUT the shore is within sight and sound, which we wanted! The north side of the house has an awesome view of the bay and it's a short walk north to access the boat launch. There are huge decks on both sides of the house with lots of seating, so you get the best of both worlds! If you're looking for a house directly ON the beach where you can monitor kids, pick something on the south side of Ponce De Leon. The kitchen has absolutely everything you would need to cook at home, and the extras (foam cooler, ice bucket, ice maker, fans, etc) were appreciated. You can't tell from the photos, but there's a nice dining table that can accommodate 6, and plenty of extra chairs. If bringing pets, stick to the driveway perimeter or the path to the beach, as the dunes are full of burrs that get stuck in paws. Even in January, we appreciated the well-stocked storage shed with umbrellas, chairs, toys, charcoal grill, etc., and the outdoor faucets. It's about a 20 minute drive into town (in the off-season) and only a few minutes from Fort Morgan - great for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle. Great wifi, laundry, fluffy towels, beautiful views, friendly neighborhood. Loved the keyless entry so we didn't have to keep track of another item. We would rent this property again in the warmer months!

KC's Cove is approximately 18 miles down Fort Morgan Road (Highway 180). Gulf Shores offers every type of restaurant you could want, but, of course, local seafood is the best! Also, there is a water park, zoo, putt putt golf, shopping, night life, bungee jumping, bumper cars, and the list goes on and on.
