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.

Notes:
DATA! There is only one Internet provider available at Bay Leave; data is limited and costly. In an effort to increase Internet speed we buy 5 gig each month. However, when a guest uses all or most of that data during a stay the Internet is painfully slow for everyone else the rest of the month. Because many of our guests use their own data and refrain from streaming while here we feel it is not fair to raise our rental prices to cover data some people do not use. Therefore, we charge for use above 1 gig while you are in residence. The charge is deducted from your deposit at the end of your stay at our cost of $10 per gig. To avoid charges you can use data during free hours (3am-8am), use your own device data, or refrain from steaming movies, videos, music, etc. The Internet is still free and the small amount of data related to checking email and using your device minimally should not affect your bill. If your use exceeds 1 gig you will be charged at our cost of $10 per gig

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying at your house. It is the perfect location between Gulf Shores and Ft. Morgan. We loved being able to go to our favorite restaurants in Gulf Shores, explore Ft. Morgan, and be directly across from the beach! Being on the bay was fantastic. Every night we would walk onto the pier and watch the fish jumping out of the water! It was a fun sight to see.

A wonderful and peaceful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Bay House. The sunsets were beautiful! We enjoyed watching the Dolphins swim, feeding a Blue Heron some small fish we caught off the pier. We even watched some Hawks flying above the pier. It was very quiet. Our dogs loved running in the fenced in yard and walking on the pier. The house is absolutely beautiful and we loved the large kitchen. The screened in porch is nice to sit on early in the morning and drink a cup of coffee. A beautiful view of the bay!

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Photographs do not represent the tranquility and peace of this home. It's a beautiful, quiet place on Mobile Bay and makes the perfect place to relax with family and fur babies. The owners and manager have created a true "home away from home" with furnishings, decor, kitchen items, and starter supplies. Every inch of living space - inside and out- is well thought out.

Cleanest place I have ever stayed at!

  • 4 of 5

It is indeed very pet friendly! I only had one issue. When we looked at the fence we were a little concerned because the pickets didn't go down to the ground. Buddy, our dog, is a dachshund mix. I mentioned this concern to Emily and she appropriately told me if I had concerns to notify Martha. Well, I started taking him out on a leash but then I decided that he was too big to escape. So I went out with him unleashed. We had to unexpectantly leave several days early. While we were packing Buddy escaped, perhaps from the back fence! Fortunately he didn't go anywhere. So, if somebody has a small dog they would need to keep him on a leash.
