Wisteria Cottage is located at the home of hosts Wayne and Martha Howard. It features an efficient single room with large private bath and walk in closet. It has a queen bed, love seat, comfy reading chair, book shelves, kitchen nook and a table for two. Outside is a small screened porch with a water view and a private patio under the shade of a big oak tree looking out at the garden. It has a private entrance.

The space
Guests will be charmed by this Tiny House experience. In the kitchen area they will find a microwave, toaster oven, crock pot, induction cook top, and a small steamer -just enough to prepare a breakfast or light meal. Plenty of dishes, glassware and utensils stock the cabinets. A small coffee pot is available as well. Book shelves are filled with books and a TV with DVD player is available. The climate is controlled by a window air conditioner in the warm months and a radiator in the cold ones. The cottage features vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan overhead.
The larger property includes the main home where the owners are full time residents, a carport, this guest house and an outdoor bathroom and shower. It is located just 5 miles from the center of Gulf Shores and only 5 minutes from two beautiful white sandy beaches. The home and guest house were originally built in the 1930's, have withstood many hurricanes and have been renovated several times.

Wayne and I are both retired high school teachers. I now spend most of my time selling real estate (I am a licensed Alabama Realtor) and managing property while Wayne, the handyman extraordinaire, keeps up with the maintenance and repairs. We raised a blended family of seven children here on Little Lagoon where we have lived for the past 27 years. I enjoy cooking and once had my own catering company; Wayne loves to garden and to fish, especially in his new fishing kayak. We both enjoy meeting and getting to know new friends. We love to travel, though we do not do as much as we used to, with some of our favorite destinations having been Japan, China, Italy, New York City, Washington State, Provincetown, DC, and every place our military daughter has been stationed. The list goes on. I have a goal to visit a new destination, near or far, every year. While we no longer have our real children in residence we do have a few furry children. Abigail is our sweet natured beagle mix. She is inside most of the time but does spend time inside our fenced yard soaking up the sun when we are away. Our two outside cat, Bucket and Francine stand guard over the porches and often present us with their prize catches. We enjoy spending our morning coffee time out on the patio where we watch the gulls, pelicans and herons fish and play in the shallow waters. Our guests are welcome to join us!
