Why Mike Ernest chose Gulf Shores

If you want to swim in a pool, watch TV, spend a bunch of money, do not go to 'The Original Beach House'

If you like Boiled Shrimp, Horse Radish, Fried Fish, Fishing of Course, swimming in the Ocean,Walking on the Beach,Etc without The Hustle, bustle of Gulf Shores then Do Come and Enjoy the Slow Life at the Beach as it Used to Be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Michael: Just wanted to let you know how much my friend and I enjoyed the Beach House. I have never stayed anywhere that was so well stocked. Plenty of towels and bath cloths.! Anything you might need in the Kitchen! My dog enjoyed going to the beach. Every time I took him out to potty, he tried to head to the beach.

We hope to see the Beach House again on future vacations.

PS: we did not even use the WiFi! Ha, Ha

Just what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Original Beach Cabin! There was just the 3 of us, my daughter and her 9 year old son. My grandson was out the door every morning early to hit the beach looking for shells and watching the fishermen.

The house had everything we needed for our stay including a washer and dryer which was a huge bonus!

The beach was gorgeous and secluded. We thought that the week before our spring break (Oklahoma), it would be crowded but we rarely saw anyone!

It is almost beachfront and you can see the gulf from the house. A few steps down the road and you're there. It is about as good as it gets - comfy, casual and how I've always envisioned a little beach cottage to be.

Thanks for letting us share your little cottage with us. We will be back!

Perfect!

The cabin is small but perfect for a couples getaway! Location is awesome! The beach is just a short walk and the white sand beaches are beautiful!

We said "I do" again...

  • 5 of 5

Originally married in 1977, we chose the seclusion of Fort Morgan in the fall for our second marriage "on the beach" (couldn't accommodate that wish back then). This house was perfect! Everything functioned and we loved the place. Excellent location, great beach, and a perfect find!

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The house is located away from the main tourist areas which is a plus to me and being able to bring my fur children was awesome since they enjoy the beach as much as I do. House is small but works well for a couple and the beach is just a short walk. I hope to stay there again next summer! Thanks Mike

Labor Day Weekend

  • 3 of 5

We had a few bugs the first night we were there, but didn't see any the rest of the stay. We didn't let that interrupt our short visit. The weather was nice and breezie. :)

We had a great time!!
