Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths plus outdoor shower, sleeps 6

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.

Golfer's Paradise: Who could ask for more than a beach house and top of the line golf courses! The Peninsula Golf Club is located just four miles East. 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. It features an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness room, indoor track, ping pong and pool tables, water aerobics, yoga and other fitness classes. In the winter the city's Special Events Department sponsors an outstanding series of performances. Information can be found at the city website.

History buffs will love historic Ft. Morgan just 11 miles west When you are finished there catch the ferry to Dauphin Island to see its sister Ft. Gaines or visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Not sure if we would return.

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time. The cottage was ready when we arrived. However we feel it was over priced. The 1/2 bath and washer and dryer are in the unattached garage. Improvements to the property would merit the current price. Not sure if we would return at current cost.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were needing to get away and decompress. Lantana Cottage was the perfect place for that. The house was very clean and so inviting. The screened porch overlooking the bay was our favorite spot. Thank you for letting us unwind and recharge.

Great get away with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to have our own little piece of private paradise, nestled in among the trees and on the bay! It's only a short drive to the hustle bustle of Gulf Shores, where there is plenty of shopping and many great restaurants! The cottage is very comfortable and the decor is fun! Our dogs were welcomed and that's hard to find. We definitely would recommend Latana, and will most likely return ourselves. We consider the owner, Linda, a new friend!

Not Much for Money

  • 1 of 5

Upon arriving to the cottage we soon found several things disappointing. The enterior was outdated and lacked upgrades. Cooking was a challenge with a stove that would stop working. The kitchen faucet didn't work properly. It was almost impossible to sit out in the the screened in patio due to the screens were loose and falling off. The mosquitoes were terrible. Watching tv was fine if u don't mind watching with a lizard that lives in the tv cabinet. Some of the blinds didn't work properly and very dusty. Nothing like being on vacation and the property owner shows up and stays for hours. Enough was enough so we left early to head home Definitely would not stay there again!

Great bay front cottage, had everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location, easy to get to. Well decorated and clean, screened in porch with a boardwalk leading to the private bay dock. We recommend Lantana for your Gulf Shores getaway experience.

Very nice with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here after a last minute change in vacation direction due to the fires in Gatlinburg. We loved the house and the view of the bay. The house was very clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely consider this house again for future stays.
