About the property

For those who remember 'the way it used to be' this cottage will bring back fond memories of days on the bay. One of the original block houses from the '50's, this cottage features old iron beds with comfortable quilts, a boat-shaped fireplace, a sidebaord full of fiesta ware and a vintage pink tiled bathroom. The pier is just right for fishing and crabbing and kids will enjoy the tree fort across the street.

From this quiet out of the way street you would never guess that Gulf access is just a two minute drive away. The Bon Secour Wildlife preserve access offers free parking and a boardwalk over the snow white dunes. Not as crowded as the beaches up in town this pristine area is great for shelling, surf fishing, walking and sunning.

It features 18 holes, a pro shop, and restaurant. In addition you will find tennis courts and a swim fitness center. If you want to change things up a bit try the 36 holes of Pure Palmer Golf at Craft Farms, Cotton Creek, and Cypress Bend just a 15 minute drive away. Want more? Play Kiva Dunes or the Golf Club of the Wharf; both are just five miles away.

Shopping: Ten miles north of Gulf Shores in Foley, Alabama the Tanger Outlet Center features 120 name brand shopping options for the bargain hunter. Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Osh Kosh, SAS, Gap, Banana Republic, Anne Klein, and more.

Once you are finished there try the numerous antique stores in and around the area. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have numerous shopping venues for those looking for special items to take home as a reminder of their days by the sea.

Recreation and Special Events: The City of Gulf Shores has a fantastic recreation center with daily, weekly, or monthly rates.

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

WE enjoyed our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean. Our family enjoyed the dock. They caught crabs and fish. The cottage is old school cool, if your wanting a homey feeling this is the place. If you plan on eating out, plan on driving a ways to eat. That was the only down fall.

Beach House Charm

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lantana Cottage. It has the charm of an old beach house with all the comforts of home. I loved the little nooks. I could read or just watch the bay. So peaceful and beautiful! We usually try to get a 3 bedroom since our boys are older, but the divider screen in the second bedroom worked out perfectly. We couldn't have been more pleased with Lantana Cottage.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Lantana Cottage was the perfect get away for our family. The cottage was cozy and comfortable with a beautiful view of the bay. If you're looking for a newer updated Cottage this one may not be the best for you but it was perfect for our family. Close enough to restaurants and shopping but also just far enough away to be removed from the crowds! We loved it!

Nice cottage away from the crowds.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a nice place to stay to be away from the crowds of Gulf Shores but still close enough to be convenient. It offers plenty of privacy and we enjoyed quiet mornings on the pier and quiet evenings in the screened in back porch. We even saw a large group of dolphins that swam around within view for hours. The only other people we saw while there was a small family in the house next door. Since we only saw them a couple times we were basically alone the whole time which is what we prefer when we are not out doing things. The inside was well kept and clean with everything we needed. The washer and dryer in the garage were convenient for washing our swimming suits and beach towels before taking the long drive home. Being only about a half mile from an uncrowded swimming beach on the gulf in the Bon Secour Wildlife preserve was great. Being about halfway between Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan suited us perfectly as we enjoyed activities on both ends of the peninsula. I would highly recommend the cottage for anyone seeking a quiet place to stay with a nice waterfront view away from the crowds.

Nice to Get Away!

  • 3 of 5

The property is away from everything, and that's what we wanted. We enjoyed being able to bring our dogs. It was very nice to fish off the dock from the back property, even though we didn't know what to do with the "rays" that were caught. We were there to relax and that's what we did!

Lantana Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was quaint, well kept and quiet. The long pier made a great fishing spot. The location was ideal - close enough but away from the hustle and bustle of town.
