This was a awesome getaway for my spouse and I. We stayed in the Pelican Rest which was set up very nice and was fully stocked with all household items. We felt very welcomed by the staff and owner. The view was beautiful and the breakfast was great. It was also nice meeting others. We will definitely be coming back.

The Fairhope / Point Clear area of Alabama is a well kept secret on Mobile Bay if you like to get away from the large and hectic tourist crowds and just relax. There are plenty of excellent restaurants, a golf course, and shopping. My wife and I have stayed everywhere in the area. There are many nice places to stay....

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Point Clear Cottages for 3 nights in April. We were on a road trip from Minnesota and on our way to Alabama's Gulf Shores.

Thank you for the lovely review and for choosing Point Clear Cottages during your recent visit to Alabama. I hope that you enjoyed your time in Gulf Shores as much as you did with us.

Fantastic hospitality -great breakfasts and bed!

We stayed at Point Clear Cottages last April in the Bayshore cottage and loved it but this year we were staying longer and chose the Pelican's Rest which is a huge, open studio with a complete kitchen, living, dining and bedroom areas.

My wife and I planned a trip to Fairhope Al. because we want a nice coastal town in which to retire. We found Point Clear Cottages on line, read the reviews and booked it.

Thank you for trusting "The Reviews" and for choosing Point Clear Cottages during your recent search for a retirement home.
