Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 spent 8 days here. The owners were great! The house is extremely spacious and very well equipped. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't already there. The large, screened porch was so nice and cool and we used it morning and night. There are ceiling fans everywhere which helped since it was July. All the comforts of home are there. And then the best part is the pier. This is where we spent our time during the day. Lots of fishing, crabbing (got 80 crabs), floating in the bay and relaxing. Oh and underneath the house is a whole other "play" area with corn hole and ping pong and lots of chairs and swings (and fans!). We normally vacation in the Florida Keys or Boca Grande and have rented many large homes. This was by far the best one ever! Thank you Patti!

Lovely Vacation Home 'while away'!

  • 5 of 5

The house was really more than what we could have asked for. We have 12 people in our family and all were nicely accommodated. We used the yard for badminton and volleyball. There was always a lovely breeze. There were porch swings and hammocks everywhere which were super great for reading and just lounging. We got to enjoy the display of fireworks across the bay while sitting on our lovely large pier. Ms. Patti was very cordial and helpful every time we had a question and recommended some fine restaurants. Thanks so much!

We would recommend Bay Villa on Weeks Bay to families for any occasion.

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second stay at While Away. It is the perfect house for my growing family. I have 5 children, 3 are married with children. There is enough room in this house for all of us to have our own space. Huge porch across the back is our favorite spot to gather to look at the water and watch the sunset.

This property is located on Weeks Bay in southern Baldwin County. The property grants you access to 300 ft. of water with endless possibilities which include fishing and various water sport activities Renters are welcome to bring a boat (kayak, jet ski, paddleboard, canoe, etc.). There is a boat launch, Nolte Creek, located 2.5 miles east of the home.

When facing Weeks Bay from the property, one can navigate south to access Mobile Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Intracoastal Canal. A boat ride to the famous Lulu's Restaurant, owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister, is approximately a 30 - 40 minute ride.

For less adventurous boaters, one can travel north from the dock and reach Fish River for lunch at Big Daddy's, owned by a local, or take a dive in the spring fed "Cold Hole" in Magnolia River. There are endless opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, or paddleboarding. To the west, the lovely bay villa is near historical Fairhope with its adorable boutique shops and wonderful restaurants. A short drive east, one will find Foley's outlet mall. When heading south, the glistening, sugar white beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is definitely a sight to experience and take the time to enjoy the Gulf Coast delicious seafood. After a busy day of visiting the surrounding areas or after a long day of sun and fun on the water, be sure and kick back on the villa's screened porch and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.!
