"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
Finding an apartment in Fairhope that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
