My husband and I are looking to escape Michigan's February snows and want to try someplace other than Florida (did that for a couple years). This past February, we were in Gulfport MS which was nice but we don't gamble and that area is hard to fish because it's too shallow for shore fishing. I've been looking at Gulf Shores rentals. We're not big fans of condos and prefer a stand-alone house but most everything I'm seeing is 4-8 bedrooms! Needless to say, a little overkill for 2 people. Is anyone aware of an area that has smaller homes for a 1-month rental? It also seems that a lot of the rentals are not available in February....I'm assuming the actual owners use them at that time?
