Beachfront Comfort and More
Once you arrive, let Mom head right for the beach and a relaxing nap on the warm sand, while the rest of the family unpack the car. The bright turquoise waters of the Gulf are just steps away from your beach-front rental. After her nap, hand her a cool, refreshing mimosa (or her favorite beverage) to enjoy out on the deck as she watches the kids play on the beach.
Rent one of our waterfront vacation homes on the bay where the private fishing dock will make a perfect lounging or brunch spot when you and the kids finish decorating it with streamers and bright flowers. If your Mom loves to be out on the water, rent a boat or kayak and she can spend as much time out on the water as she wants. The kids can stay on the dock and fish for dinner, or if they’re being good, maybe Mom will invite them on her boat ride.
Our luxury condos have amazing views of Gulf Shores and the coast, plus amenities your Mom will love. Swimming pools, spas, lighted tennis courts, and in-house fitness centers are just a few of things she can enjoy at her leisure.
Show Your Appreciation – It’s Easy
While a nice, long morning lie-in and breakfast in bed is always a welcome treat, that’s just a start. Your rental’s kitchen is fully equipped, so all you need to bring are the ingredients for her favorite French toast and a bag of her favorite French roast.
Even young kids can spell out “MOM” with sea shells, driftwood or beach towels on the beach in front of your rental, or wait until low tide when they can easily write “WE LOVE YOU MOM” in the damp sand. Take a few pictures to post online, and to print out later. What Mom won’t love pictures of her kids posing by their message on the beach?
Bring along your Mother’s Day gifts or make them while you’re here. The kids can make their own Mother’s Day cards with colored paper, markers, and a few shells they picked up earlier Get the kids situated out on the deck, then let them make their own gifts with a coastal flair: wind chimes, bath fizzies, or just decorating store-bought cookies for their favorite Mom.
Fill a basket with her favorite candy, a lovely aromatic candle, some bath salts, that new novel she’s never had time to read or a few magazines or two and let her have a DIY spa day. While you take the kids out fishing or beachcombing, she can enjoy a long bubbly soak in the tub, and the soothing sound of the waves through the window will have her stress levels plummeting in no time.
Does your Mom have a sweet tooth? She’ll love to start her day with delicious beignets from Café Beignet, or homemade doughnuts and kolaches from Lickin Good Donuts. Their Mermaid donuts are so cute!
Show Your Appreciation – Do It Her Way
Give her a Gulf Shores Mother’s Day weekend where she can do whatever she likes to do! Does she like to paint or cook? Stream a cooking or painting class—free Wi-Fi makes it a breeze. Does she like rom-coms? Let her binge watch them all day! All you and the kids have to do is keep those snacks and cool drinks stocked up, within reach.

Get outside and do something as a family. Moms love that stuff! Book a dolphin watching charter or fishing charter, or rent kayaks or jet skis for family fun on the water. Head to Gulf State Park for the day and let Mom pick the activity – kayaking, swimming, fishing, even geo-caching. Be sure to start the day out at the Gulf Shores Diner, Kitty’s Kafe or Hazel’s Nook for breakfast, Southern Style.
Take the entire family out for a Mother’s Day Brunch or dinner. There are a few local restaurants that will be open for in-house dining. Or, order her favorite seafood dinner to go, and enjoy it out on the deck. Bahama Bob’s Beach Side Café or the Original Oyster House are just two local seafood spots to try.
