Can it be a year already? As we close in on one full year of ownership at Jubilee Suites in Fairhope, AL, it’s reviews like the following that help us feel truly grateful for our new life in Fairhope and for all the personal changes we’ve made in the last year.
“Jim and Dana,
We could not have been more pleased with our stay in the Camellia Suite at Jubilee Suites. After a very hard and stressful week for Donna in her law practice we were looking for a quick weekend getaway to relax. We searched Airbnb for a place and luckily found Jubilee Suites. It is an absolute oasis and we knew as soon as we turned in to the driveway that we had made the right choice. The apartment was beautiful, spotless and the sunset over Mobile Bay from our balcony is spectacular. I am running out of superlatives to express how much we enjoyed our stay.”
We agree! About a year ago we moved from Charlotte to beautiful Fairhope, AL to be closer to our family, including our new granddaughter Bea. We had been happy and successful Airbnb superhosts in Charlotte, but in Fairhope we wanted to go all in and become onsite owners and managers of a family vacation property. When we found this historic small hotel right on Mobile Bay, with it’s incredible sunset views and 200 feet of beachfront shoreline, we knew we had found our new home. With its seven luxury suites, each with one or two bedrooms and baths, our vision is now to share our love of hospitality with many more families, couples, business travelers, and groups. It has been a fantastic year for us personally as we have settled into our new home, renovated each and every suite, improved the property in countless ways, and have welcomed lots of new guests.
2019 will continue to be a year of changes. As I write this, we have the entire hotel rented out this weekend to a wedding party. We’ll begin with an authentic Southern BBQ for dinner on Thursday. The forecast is for a spectacular sunset that evening and we’ll host a viewing party from the comfort of our backyard bluff overlooking Mobile Bay. The actual wedding venue is offsite, but as part of their wedding celebration, we’ll provide a home base and 3 more meals for the wedding party this weekend. I hope the lovely couple and their families will always remember the beauty and tranquility of their stay at Jubilee Suites during their exciting wedding weekend.
We also have used our large event room on the top floor for yoga classes this month. A local instructor has decided this is the perfect setting for his group yoga classes. We also think this would be the perfect setting for a yoga weekend and we look forward to hosting one soon. If you’re inspired to hold a yoga or wellness retreat, we’ve got the perfect venue for you and lots of ideas to make it one-of-a-kind.
It is our joy to serve new and returning friends and we invite you to join us this year at Jubilee Suites. If you’ve got a family vacation, couples getaway, or an event coming up, give us a call and let’s talk about what we can do for you.
