Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage

CBTB is situated just 50’ from the waters of Mobile Bay. The house is perfect for small families, a group of friends, a couple, or just someone looking to get away from it all. Boater? Boat launch is 2 minute drive. Can’t get enough of white sandy beaches? The Gulf of Mexico is .75 miles away. Foodie? Walk across the street to The Beach Club, take a short drive to Sassy Bass or drive to Gulf Shores for an amazing range of places. License to chill? Stay at the cottage and enjoy incredible sunsets from the large deck that overlooks Mobile Bay, grill some dinner or enjoy your time on your own private sandy beach.

CBTB has recently been renovated. It is comfortable and updated, but still retains the old charm that only comes from a place that has been around for over five decades. The kitchen is open to the living room. The living room includes a large TV, a bed nook perfect for reading or naps, and full wall windows/patio doors to keep the view always close.

CBTB offers a chance to escape the daily grind. We spent almost a year living in the house, and we believe you will love it just as much as we have. Chuck & Julie

Lovely and charming

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Gulf Shores. Our accomodations on the bay side closer to Ft. Morgan were outstanding.

We liked being 10 miles west of the crawling traffic on Gulf Shores Blvd.

Great walks with the dog in Gulf Shore State Park. Fort Mirgan allows dogs on the beach. No dogs are allowed on the beach in Gulf Shores.

Great place to chose your weather based on wind.

Many great restaraunts. We enjoyed buying local fish and shrimp and cooking back at our idyllic beach house.

Friendly and helpful folks everywhere!

Perfect for our small family

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our newborn and our dog drove down to escape Chicago winter; this beach house was certainly worth the drive! It was everything we hoped for (minus being unable to swim on the property) and we could not have had a better stay. Julie was extremely helpful and very pleasant to work with. We enjoyed cooking and relaxing in the comfort of "our own" home all week, all while staring at the amazing water views from every room in the house! My husband and I were able to put the baby down upstairs and utilize the wonderful hot tub downstairs! We certainly plan to return the next time we head to Gulf Shores.

Chuckles by the Bay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely property and had the most relaxing time. We have stayed at many houses on Fort Morgan Road, but this house had the most equipped kitchen. Not one thing that was not provided. We felt at home from the time we walked in. The house had a beautiful white sandy beach area, fire pit, hot tub, beautiful landscaped yard and wonderful deck area. Also, the beds were most comfortable. We will definitely be booking this house again in the future. The Brown's - Mobile, AL

Returned

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit last year so much we booked it again this year. It did not disappoint us for our RESTcation. It was once again the perfect place to just relax and forget about life for awhile. Thank you for providing such a lovely spot to getaway from it all with breath-taking views of sunrises and sunsets while having dinner on the deck. It's perfection!

This is a 5 star property if you are looking for a cozy stay and privacy. I would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We were very happy with the home and the surroundings. After touring around some of the vacation rental communities, I was very glad we chose Chukkles by the Bay. Most of the others were located 4 deep with a bay view. Your home is directly on the bay and private. The home includes everything you need to make the stay comfortable. The view of the bay is spectacular and the bonus dolphin show is more than I could have asked for. I would not hesitate to recommend your home to anybody vacationing in the area.

mini but mighty , perfect for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Chukkles by the Bay is THE PERFECT couples getaway spot. It's not in the middle of the crowds in Gulf Shores, it's about half way down Ft Morgan.

There is a gorgeous view of the bay any where you want to look. The local scrubby bush growth by the road blocks traffic noise so you hear the gentle lap of the bay. It has the best equipped kitchen we've seen yet in a vacation rental, but if you don't want to cook, it's only a short drive in either direction to really good ,fresh seafood or what ever else you might want. Super comfy bed/pillows, big tv that hubby loved, and for me, that book nook was beyond perfect. Prop in a corner, read for a while and every time you look up from a book , there's the bay spread out in front of you!

It was so great to be able to bring our beloved dogs with us, LillyRose was the hostess with the mostess and Remy just loved playing with her, the yard was perfect.

We look forward to returning and I am sure we will match our vacation time to availability of this wonderful retreat!
