“Great place”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Located just outside of town. Very quiet and tranquil. The cottages are practically new. Everything is supplied even though I took my own flannelette sheets. Washer and dryer are located in each cottage.

“Charming cottage in uniquely Southern setting”

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bon Secour. The location is perfect--minutes from sightseeing, the beach, charter fishing, and shopping. Gulf Shores is a wonderful beach community and the state of Alabama has done a wonderful job scattering facilities along the waterfront to provide recreational opportunities to the public. Phil, the cottage's owner, is so attentive to every detail of his guest's visit and we really did appreciate that. He is friendly without being intrusive and would do anything in the world for you. We certainly hope to return here.

We arrived on Thanksgiving afternoon and found the cottage well prepared for guests. It is attractively and well furnished. There was coffee, juices, water, and breakfast bars there. We unpacked and drove the short distance into Gulf Shores for dinner. Phil called to check on us. Actually Phil and Toni are so welcoming and helpful that we relaxed and felt at home immediately. We spent three afternoons on the pier watching the sunset with a glass of wine. The cabin is well located to beaches, the river, several good restaurants, bird watching, and walking trails. Jesse's in Magnolia Springs, Bahamas Bobs, and Down South BBQ were good restaurants. Thank you Phil and Toni for the great weather and your cabin.

We left our $200 deposit up. We will return. This is the most charming & peaceful vacation place. It's like a doll house but everything you could want. The only thing I would say is bring your own pillows. It even has a washer & dryer.

“Great find!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were a little unsure of what the location would be like but were pleasantly surprised. It's a quiet neighborhood with an easy 15 minute drive to the beach, passing stores and restaurants. Less than a mile from seafood vendors. Phil was always available and very kind and helpful. He came immediately when our AC went out one evening and replaced it and even stopped by later to make sure we were cool enough. He also provided lots of recommendations and area information. The cabins are small but modern with a nice kitchen, bathroom and bed and plenty of space outside with a picnic table and charcoal grill. We enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed.

“Bon Secour cabin”

people found this review helpful

We arrived to find a very clean cabin, complete with extra linens and the kitchen stocked with dishes and cooking supplies. We appreciated the privacy aspect (as compared to staying in a condo or hotel). Our stay couldn't have been better; Phil was helpful in suggesting places of interest. We're thinking of returning to the same place next year, we were so happy with our stay.
