*Our amazing trip to Alabama’s white-sand beaches was hosted by the great folks at Gulf Shores & Orange Beach tourism. Our stay at the the East Point Cottages was complimentary and the views expressed are always of our own. Let’s gallivant!
1-20 minutes from everything in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. That was the perception we had whenever we left the comfort of the Barefoot Bungalow and explored this remarkable community on Bama’s Gulf Coast. The centralized feeling of our bungalow made the weekend even greater since it was just a short walk or a short drive from everything we wanted to experience during our vacation. The best part was how much we looked forward to returning to the ambiance and perfect surroundings that Lucky Bird Vacations provided. Here’s a glimpse at what Team Goodvin enjoyed at East Point Cottages! Let’s take a quick tour….
Let’s Move In!
This property is only a year old and Lucky Bird maintains the feeling of walking into a brand new condo when you check-in. Modern appliances, full kitchen with all the pots and pans you’ll need, multiple bathrooms, and spacious rooms. This is how you can make a family of five truly comfortable when you arrive to a bungalow 15 hours away from your front door. It didn’t take long for all of us to move in!
What’s the first thing I usually say before we get unpacked? “Don’t touch anything! Let me take pictures first!” Not this time. There was no way I was going to hold back the family on this trip. The look in their eyes was priceless and the Barefoot Bungalow provided genuine excitement and a whole lot of amazement from the moment we arrived. I have a feeling the expressions we had will be very similar to many who discover East Point Cottages.
From the Pool to the Porch and Repeat!
Pool, porch, cold bevs. All go better with a weekend in Gulf Shores. Lucky Bird has this technique down to a science and you’ll soak it right up when you get here, too. The refreshing pool is just a few feet away and your own porch is just a couple steps from your living room couch.
Let’s Stay In!
As you can see, the dining room table is a meeting place for more than a few meals… we had some of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach’s best pizza, sandwiches, salads and BBQ coming in! There’s something to be said about your accommodations when there’s so many ways to go out but you’d rather stay in and eat.
Goodnight, Gulf Shores.
When the sun is down and the moon is up. From the break of day to the afternoon warmth of the rays shining in. The daily lifestyle at East Point Cottages is one of the most unique of its kind. For us, it was just an easy distance from everything in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. Which means we were just minutes from a Lucky Bird home the whole time, day and night.
See You Again, Gulf Shores.
This was a blog post I was looking forward to, but I knew it would be one that would bring out the softy in me. Lucky Bird Vacations has many options for what you want in a white-sand beaches getaway. For us, we couldn’t imagine a better way to spend it than at the Barefoot Bungalow. It showed us how to enjoy a weekend on the gulf in a way that none of us imagined when we were driving to Alabama from Iowa. All the talk on the way there was about the white-sand beaches, popular restaurants, sunny days, and the salt life the locals talked up. East Point Cottages brought all of this together for us and we adored every minute in the bungalow as much as we did everywhere else on the coast. That last sentence is a very satisfying one to write. Thank you, Lucky Bird!
