About Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores

Owner Brian Murray (left), pictured here with property manager Martha Howard (center) and partner David Kilborn (right) bought this cottage so he could be near family when he retires. Until then he wants to share it with others who want to get away for some quiet time near the water. As the "parent" of three fuzzy four legged "children" Brian knows just how hard it can be to find a pet friendly place to spend a vacation. Clovis, Mimi, and Sissy are looking forward to spending their golden years on Mobile Bay.

Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Martha Howard, Gulf Coast Keyholders and Exit Realty, Gulf Shores chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Not only did David grow up in this area but his sisters, nieces and nephews live here too. As for the home, there is not a more beautiful spot on the bay - the view, the old oaks with Spanish moss hanging from their limbs, the gentle lap of the water, the spacious yard, the quiet setting and peaceful surroundings simply spoke of home. The large yard and distance from the busy highway also made this home a perfect spot for children and pets.

What makes this cottage unique

This property offers a guest a different view of Gulf Shores. Quiet and secluded under old oaks this home is far away from the vacation rental crowd. Guests experience what it is like to live along the bay on the island's Ft Morgan peninsula. Sunsets are unparalleled from the pier it shares with its two neighbors. For those who want to play in the Gulf waters the beach at the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is almost across the street. A two minute drive will take you to its pristine shore where you can swim, fish, walk, shell and bask in the rays. Located about nine miles from town it is a quick trip to the center of the action, shops, restaurants, and attractions if you can tear yourself away from the front porch.

Best stocked home we've stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This truly felt like a home away from home. There was not a single kitchen item that I missed. Just Far enough off the beaten path to enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to get anything you need.

Property was very good. Wicker furniture looked great but not so comfortable.

Beautiful view of the bay!!! Very neat and clean property.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the setting of this cottage. My husband and son spent most of their time fishing on the dock and was able to hook a couple red drums. We also loved the mature oak trees with the Spanish Moss that surrounded the house. The only draw back for us the distance away from restaurants, shopping and entertainment. It felt like we spent a great deal of our vacation in the car driving to find dinner or entertainment. Would highly recommend for older couples or younger couples without children that require entertainment.

Bay Leave Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The month at Bay Leave was so very relaxing. Warm February weather, much better than Indiana weather, and great food and people. The property was comfortable and well maintained. When the gas grill "died", a new charcoal Weber grill suddenly appeared, I love grilling on charcoal!!! The supplied crab traps provided us with about a dozen crab every 5 days or so, very tasty. Next time I'll bring my waders so I can wade fish, the water runs a foot and a half to waist deep and I want to try catching some red's and trout. If our arthritis wasn't so bad I'd say the rattan furniture would rate a 9+, but I miss the plush cushions from home. Regardless, we rate this home AAAAA+++++. Looking forward to next February.

Quaint cottage made Gulf Coast exploring easy

  • 5 of 5

Newbies to the Gulf Coast area, we were looking for a relaxing getaway and low-hassle trip. Thus, the Bay Leave cottage was the perfect set-up for us. We enjoyed the screened-in porch, the access to the bay and the ease of getting around the area. Plus, our dog enjoyed being included in the fun. Many thanks to the owners for being so organized and making visiting the Gulf Coast easy!

Our only (super, non-essential!) request for next time: swap out your indoor wicker for a comfy couch and chairs just so we can take our relaxation to the next level. Other than that, thanks for contributing to a great trip!
