It's not very often that we toot our own horn, well alright, we occasionally do,
well OK, at least once a month,
BUT we had such a nice review added to our on-line guest book that I thought I'd share it with you.

My husband and I are retired, and we spent a month last winter at Good Haven House. It was our first trip there and it was the most relaxing, peaceful and comfortable vacation that we have ever had. The view of Perdido Bay over the well grassed lawn is incredible! There is a second floor deck that runs the length of the house and faces the Bay and the dock that stretches out into the Bay. We spent almost every morning having coffee, reading and visiting with one another while sitting on the back deck. This deck is accessible by the sliding doors in both the large master "en suite" bedroom and the den/living room. The kitchen has most any of the utensils, pots and pans, glassware and tableware that one might want to prepare food.
The first time we went to the Orange Beach Coastal Area, we stayed in a high rise condo. Although it had a nice ocean view balcony, it was often so windy, and, frankly boring, to sit on for any length of time, that we were outside for far less time than we were at Good Haven House. Also, all the outdoor areas of the high rise complex were all concrete and very little green area in sight. At Good Haven House, the home is surrounded by tall pines and a lot of grassy areas. We have 2 pets, which are allowed for a nominal fee, and it was wonderful to have the large area to walk them, and us, too. Also, the ground floor of the house is a nice screened in area to also sit and visit and grill in. It was also reassuring to have an area like that to leave our dogs in when we went somewhere that they couldn't accompany us to.
The beds were comfortable, the sheets, pillows and towels were soft and plentiful. In fact,we enjoyed ourselves so much that we have already reserved another month this year. It was kind of funny, that both my husband and I had an understanding as to why it was called "Good Haven House" after only 1 night there. And, as the end of our vacation got closer, we both didn't want to leave because of the peaceful and relaxing time we had there. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to "get away from it all"
Thank you, Kathleen and Jay, for the wonderful review. You put into words exactly how we feel about our place and it's nice to know others feel the same way.
