Where you’ll be

Mobile, Alabama, United States

Mobile is a colorful, vibrant city with an incredibly rich past, and we look forward to hosting your visit here! Our home is situated along the live oak lined streets of Historic Midtown Mobile with its eight National Register Historic Districts and grand old homes. The local grocery is a half mile drive, or 10-minute walk away.

We are within walking and biking distance to a wide variety of shops, art galleries, historic house museums, restaurants, wine bars, community parks. We are also located two miles from the LODA Entertainment District, farmers' Market on the Square, Mardi Gras Museum, Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center and IMAX theater, GulfQuest Maritime Museum, Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Mardi Gras parade routes, and Carnival Cruise Terminal.

For the outdoorsman, there are kayaking and sunset pontoon boat tours, airboat rides, alligator tours, standup paddle board rentals, guided fishing trips, and the Five Rivers Delta Resource Center. Sleepy Dauphin Island with its sugary white beaches and hiking and biking trails are only a 40-minute drive to the south. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are an hour to the east. Bellingrath Gardens and Home is a magnificent 65-acre public garden and historic home located on Fowl River just 35 minutes away. If you are a birding enthusiast, Mobile is home to one of the largest migrations in North America and provides phenomenal birdwatching. John also happens to be a marine biologist and bird expert (and likes to talk!), so please feel free to pick his brain about the incredibly unique and rich biodiversity Mobile Bay has to offer.

We are a marine biologist turned renovator ("John Rand the Handyman"), and an interior designer/marketing executive ("Maids a la Mode"). We've renovated, designed, and furnished all 7 of our historic properties with tender loving care and hope that our love for world travel, the open water, historic architecture and modern design will shine through during your stay. Airbnb started as an experiment for us and a way to stay connected to the world and our love of travel. It's been an amazing experience since starting out in 2015 and we haven't looked back since.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you to one of our properties and our vibrant city soon!
