Overview

Photos and Description of the Gasque vacation cottage rental

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, huge shaded lot, on a dead end lane on Bon Secour Bay

This newly updated, vintage Gulf Coast cottage on 1.3 acres of shaded property is a great place to relax and recharge, and all that Gulf Shores offers -- sugar white beaches, delicious dining, fishing, golf, kayaking, entertainment, children's activities, and more -- is minutes away. Or, watch your favorite team crush their opponents on the big screen TV while kicking back in one of two comfy recliners.

The 3 bedrooms and 2 baths accommodate 7 guests comfortably, with 2 full beds in one (with tv), a king bed in another (with tv), and 3 twin beds in the third bedroom. The large dining room table seats 8, with a couple of extra chairs just in case. Prepare delicious seafood in the fully equipped kitchen with serve-through bar, range, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and all the usual small appliances such as coffee maker and blender. The living room, with two comfortable recliners and sofa, has a large-screen tv over the fireplace mantel. The cabinets and bookshelves have games and books for long, lazy days. Everything is on one level, with no steps other than a low step into the kitchen.

Or go to what we think is the most beautiful beach in the world, the public Gulf beach in the protected Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge, with plenty of parking and a boardwalk to the uncrowded beach. The Wildlife Refuge surrounds the cottage and the other homes on our little lane, giving us the recent experience of standing in the living room and watching, through the floor-to-ceiling windows, an osprey snatch a fish from Shellbanks Bayou on one side of the house while pelicans and cormorants dove for them in Bon Secour Bay on the other.

Caroline's Cottage is a traditional Gulf Coast cottage situated on 1.3 shaded acres on a quiet lane on Bon Secour Bay. While the beautiful, sandy Gulf beaches are just a stone's throw away, the diverse ecosystem of Shellbanks Bayou can enchant at any time. Hawks, ospreys, seagulls, and pelicans are on the wing, while white egrets and blue herons wade below. For relaxing and power naps, there is nothing like the screened porch bed swing and three-person classic swing. For more energetic pastimes, there's easy access for kayaking on the bayside. Also, shady, picturesque bike paths are minutes away, as well as a short bike ride down the shady lane, just out the front door. Another activity for nature lovers is walking the hiking trails through the Bon Secour National Refuge which surrounds Council Lane. Or take a breezy, exhilarating ride on the Dauphin Island ferry just for fun.

At the same time, you'll be a 15-minute drive from the center of Gulf Shores and a short trip farther to Orange Beach, with their extensive variety of attractions, activities, and shopping. For more shopping, the Tanger outlet mall is a short drive up Highway 59 to Foley.

And, of course, the Gulf Coast's greatest seafood is served in every way from basketsful of fried shrimp and oysters to white linen, fine dining restaurants.
