The Space

'Anchors Away' was featured on AL.com! Search "Cool Spaces: Sail away to this easy, breezy Airbnb in midtown Mobile" to read the article! Enjoy the privacy of your own flat during your stay here in Mobile. Full of helpful amenities and little luxuries, it's the perfect place to call home for a weekend, or more extended stay. Prepare a home-cooked meal in its sunny, fully equipped kitchen with butcher block countertops and soaring 12-foot ceilings. On a rainy day, cozy up in front of the Smart TV and stream your favorite movie with our complimentary Wi-fi. Enjoy a great night's sleep in the queen sized, four poster bed, made up with Italian linens. There is also a self inflating air mattress if you need it. Plush Turkish cotton bath linens and toiletries are provided. Please make yourself at home on the front porch with a cocktail or just to sit and watch a summer thunderstorm roll by.

Guest Access

Guests will enjoy the newly renovated, fully equipped kitchen, Smart TV with complimentary Wi-fi, washer and dryer, and spacious front porch. Two complimentary bikes are available for you to wheel around town. We also have an air mattress for your use if needed. The flat is yours to enjoy, so put your feet up, get comfy and stay a while.

Interaction with Guests

We can have as much or little contact with you as you'd like during your visit. We love meeting new people and sharing with them what makes our city and neighborhood so special, so please don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

Mobile is UBER, taxi, and public transit friendly. We also have several custom bicycles for you to enjoy, all hanging on the "Tree of mobility!"

Other Things to Note

Help yourself to the free Wi-Fi! The network name is "White House" and the password is "old government".

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

1. We love and take good care of our home, so we ask that you keep that in mind and care for it the same way we would. 2. Pets are accepted at the discretion of the hosts. If you are traveling with a pet, please let us know in advance via messenger. We treat pets as additional guests ($25/night additional) so that we can ensure a squeaky clean and tidy space for our next guests. As long as they're potty trained, clean and quiet, and stay off of the furniture, they are welcome! Guests who leave their pet(s) unattended in the flat must be reachable by cell phone in the event that any issues arise while they are away. We also ask that you clean up any messes they leave in our or our neighbors' yards during your stay. 3. We are a smoke-free property, inside and outside on the property. 4. We ask that you be respectful of our neighbors and other guests. Please keep the noise to an appropriate level for the time of day it is. Our neighbors and guests are also our friends! 5. Help yourself to the wine bar. We operate on the honor system with the simple rule: Drink some, leave some. All other treats in the kitchen are complimentary, so please enjoy. 6. If you recycle like us, please leave your rinsed plastic, glass and paper on the counter and we'll take care of it from there. 7. Parking is curbside in front of our home. Please do not park in front of the mailboxes though as it makes our mailman very grumpy.
