I understand first hand that it is difficult to rent in Fairhope. I would suggest looking outside of Fairhope and by doing this, you may save yourself some rental dollars in the process! Consider Baldwin Farms Apartments which is in Robertsdale and approximately 15 minutes from the Fairhope area. Rent starts as low as $550 per month and includes water and cable! It will also put you 15 minutes from the beach too! I had this problem when moving to the area and found this to be the perfect solution. Good Luck!
