June stay at the Salty Unicorn

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Salty Unicorn! The home was very very clean, well-stacked, and incredibly comfortable. We appreciated so much that we could bring our dog! Highly recommend this home, we would definitely stay here again!

Amazing cottage
5/5 stars
The Salty Unicorn is a beautiful, clean, pet friendly cottage. It had everything a person could possibly need. Very close to the beach, Gulf State Park, restaurants and grocery stores. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We stayed from January 1st, 2022 until March 5th, 2022. We were able to meet the other residents that were staying in the other cottages and can now consider them friends. We loved it so much we booked for three months next year! Thank you Salty Unicorn!

New and clean cottage close to beach
5/5 stars
The Salty Unicorn is a beautiful cottage located 3 blocks from beach access, shopping and restaurants. The pool is shared with 8 units but often we were the only ones using it. The cottage is very clean, kitchen had supplies for basic cooking, and the washer/dryer was a bonus to wash beach towels and swim suits daily. The unit had a beach wagon and some beach chairs to use. Additionally, having 3 full bathrooms was convenient as we were traveling with teenagers. We took advantage of the iTrip option for activities and did Zeke’s Lady deep sea fishing. So much fun! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Highly Recommend!
5/5 stars
My family and I really enjoyed the stay at The Salty Unicorn! The pool is a great size and only shared with a handful of houses, so it is not overcrowded. The house is plenty large for 1-2 families. The walk to the beach is very easy and maybe takes about 10 minutes. Very happy overall and would love to stay here again. ***The only con I would have is the stairs to reach the bedrooms. I would not recommend the house to someone with an elderly family member that does not do well with stairs. Other than that, it was great!

Excellent Stay!!

We absolutely fell in love with the Salty Unicorn and the Gulf Shores area! The place was spotless and beautiful. My family of 5 loved it. We will definitely be back!

Salty Unicorn Vacation
5/5 stars
We loved the Salty Unicorn, it was so nice to wake up to views of the gulf everyday. The cottage was beautifully decorated and everything we needed was there for us. A few suggestions would be a solar cover for pool so swimming could have been possible somedays. I realize a heater could be cost prohibitive. Also, as we were there for 2 months and we were to keep up the cleaning a few items like stovetop cleaner, stainless steel cleaner and a squeegee for the glass shower doors would have been handy. Somethings we discovered because of repair calls were the dishwasher needs a rinse added or dishes do not dry properly. Hopefully it will be noted for future guests. We loved the location, it was quiet, and out of the hub bub but close enough to walk to everything. It was everything we could have hoped for renting sight unseen.
- Sheryl

Thank you so much for your stay with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed it so much!! Indeed, it is fantastic waking up to those incredible views every day. Thank you for the suggestion about the solar cover. We will certainly pass it along, but it's doubtful that one will be added. The pool at The Salty Unicorn in a fantastic feature and is thoroughly enjoyed for many months out of the year, just unfortunately not during your two months. There are a few properties in our area that have heated indoor pools. If that is an important feature to you please feel free to reach out to us before your next vacation and we will be glad to help you find a property that meets your needs. We appreciate your valuable feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Great location and a wide range of amenities!
5/5 stars
Gulf Shores makes for a great quiet vacation. With a small surf town, just a five minute walk away, The Salty Unicorn was a perfect spot to spend the week. A few hours from Panama City this little beach spot has almost identical beaches and feel, but with one big difference... No crowds! we spent hours out in the sand enjoying the great weather with no issue finding a spot to camp out. The house was well decorated (great color scheme!) and so clean. We easily fit 6 people (two in the bunk beds, and two in both bedrooms), it was a great size for our large family, and the kitchen has all the supplies needed to cook dinner two of the nights we were there. The house is on a shared lot, so there are 7 other rentals in close quarters, but the neighbors were all quiet and friendly. All the rentals share a pool that the living room and master bedroom balconies overlook, which was perfect for keeping an eye on the kids while keeping out of the sun. We will definitely be coming back to The Salty Pony!

We absolutely loved the Salty Unicorn! Not only did it have beautiful decor, it had everything we needed. The bunk beds were a big hit each with their own flat screen. Only a 15 min walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
