About Pete Perkins

I first found Gulf Shores in the mid '80's and became an owner shortly thereafter. I look forward to the time I can get here and enjoy the beach and ride the bike paths. I come in the spring and fall every year and the weather is spectacular.

Pete Perkins purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Pete Perkins chose Alabama Gulf Coast

I own a condominium and love coming to the beach, however, I wanted something along the beach area where it's less crowded and offers more privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

I had been looking for a beach cottage for the last few years that had the features and amenities and location I was looking for including a pool, easy access to the beach, and close to all the restaurants and activities. When I saw this property I knew I had found what I had been looking for.

Excellent cottage close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here. Super close to the beach and the porch was excellent at night! We had 7 people and slept comfortably! Would definitely recommend.

Great beach access...best unit at sea and sun

  • 4 of 5

Loved Sea and sun! We split the house with our parents. The only suggestion I would make is darker curtains rather than white sheers in the guest room. The room never gets dark at night bc of the flood light on the adjacent unit shining over the pool and right into the bedroom window and then the sun is up bright and early and warms the room quite a bit. The room never gets dark. We put dark blankets over them after a few days and it was just fine. Other than that no complaints. We had a great time. I feel it's one of the better places on that strip for sure. I would stay again.

Owner's Response: HI, thanks for your review we really appreciate it and are glad you had a great trip. We met with our Seamstress / Int. Decorator in the spring. She said it would take 6 weeks to complete all new lined drapes. We apologize for any inconvenience because our unit has been so occupied / popular that we have been unable to get back in there during the season.We have rescheduled to have the new lined drapes put in this fall for next season. Please come again next year and see for yourselves. And yes we agree that our Unique Beach Hse is the best unit in the complex and quite possibly we think the best set up & deal on West Beach Blvd. Have a great rest of the summer. and see you next year. Rgds, Pete & Ed

Perfect location, nicely furnished, comfortable and easily accessible

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a four day weekend and it was the perfect getaway vacation spot! The cottage is located on the bay side but a quick walk across the street gets you to the beach. The cottage was comfortable, clean and well furnished. It had everything we needed. Additionally, the key pad access on the door made it easy to come and go from the beach as we pleased. Thanks for the great stay! We will definitely visit again soon and rent from this property.

GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! It was the perfect size for our girls get away! The house was very updated and had everything we needed! The pool was just behind the house which worked great when we didn't want to go to the beach which was a quick walk across the street!! Will definitely use again!! Thank you for allowing us to use the house!!
