"Fairhope is home to more published authors per capita than any place else in the country. At one point not many years back, three local writers were on the New York Times bestsellers' list at the same time: WEB Griffin, Winston Groom and Jimmy Buffett. One author suggested we have a billboard at the edge of town to declare 'Fairhope, Alabama, the home of more writers than readers!'" --Sonny Brewer, Fairhope author
Witty writers who can laugh off Alabama stereotypes make life in Fairhope a Southern sensation. When a city feels secure enough in its natural beauty and reputation that it has a website named Beautiful Fairhope, you know that city is bold, confident and gorgeous, basically the supermodel equivalent of an American city. Mobile Bay is the main factor in the community and its lifestyle. Water activities are prevalent, vacationing tourists stop by, and even land-loving sports enthusiasts get bay views at parks and trails along the water's edge. The warm climate makes Fairhope a favorite winter spot for those escaping the drudgery of snow shoveling and thermal underwear, and has especially enticed artists and writers over the years. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Fairhope renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
