Fantastic home, fun place for large group!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17 just spend our Christmas here. It was a wonderful time....

The setting on Weeks Bay was full of many species of water birds and the trees on the lawn near the shore was the family home of several eastern bluebirds!!

There was something to do for every age! A fascinating home with wonderful porches,hammocks and games for all.

A big thank-you to Patti.

Fantastic Host, Gorgeous Views, and Memories to Last a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Patti is an exceptional host. Prior to our Thanksgiving stay, my wife and I drove over from Mobile to check out the property. Since all of my family from Texas was driving in, we wanted to ensure we didn't need to bring any extras. Patti met us one Saturday and was very accommodating.

As far as our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the week long visit to Weeks Bay. The morning sunrise and evening sunsets were spectacular. Family members took several naps on the porch overlooking the bay. All the kids had a great time playing in the yard, checking the crab traps, and fishing from the dock. We did make a couple of excursions to a Fairhope park and Orange Beach so the kids could experience the ocean.

The house is setup nicely to accommodate a large group. Each family had their own room and plenty of space to stretch out. My family from Texas really enjoyed their stay and the 10 and 12 hour drives were well worth it. Everyone looks forward to the next time we can all be together, and it just might be in Magnolia Springs at the Magnificent Bay Villa.

If you are considering this home, book it today. Patti is wonderful and the house is amazing.

Unforgettable Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Most magnificent experience of my life!!! I got married on October 22, 2016 and rented this place for three days. The kitchen was large and spacious. The living room was classy and vibrant. Then the bedrooms were so warm and welcoming. My wedding was outside in the backyard with the gorgeous view of the bay in the background. I had 15 of my family members stay comfortably while we prepared for the wedding and all everyone could talk about was how beautiful the house was, and the view from the back. I felt like I had a million dollar wedding!!! The house was right next to the bay so we could hear seagulls laughing and the water crackle against they shore. It was like having the honeymoon come to the wedding! The owner was kind and she gave my family, my friends, and I an amazing experience at the Villa. Will definitely rent it out again for the holidays!

Amazing Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home as a gathering place for out of town guests for our son's wedding. We had 11 guest including our 4 year old grandson and his 6 month old baby sister. The home is absolutely amazing! We had the rehearsal dinner catered in by a local restaurant - there was comfortable room for everyone. I could list hundreds of features that we loved about the place but this will probably sum it up best - when we look back on the memories of our son's wedding this beautiful home will be something that we and Our guests will remember as a beautiful part of an amazing week! Thank you Patti for sharing! We will be back.

Awesome Family Wedding Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend our granddaughter got married in Fairhope and we rented this home for our Birmingham family to come and stay in. What a beautiful place! We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and relax as well as a large kitchen for dining. Hosted a bridesmaid luncheon in the elegant dining room which everyone enjoyed. Spent lots of time on the porch and on the pier fishing. The location on the bay is spectacular--never saw so many pelicans and herons. The owner has thought of everything you might need for a restful visit even with a large family. Look forward to a return visit.

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.!
