Interaction with guests

We are available to socialize with you if that is your desire. However, it also depends upon our schedule. If there are activities that you wish to participate in that we can assist you with.....we will if you at all possible and if you let us know in advance. Example: I have a friend within 2 miles or so who has a ranch with lots of horses. She can set up a fun ride for your group if she has ADVANCE notice. Rates for ride are approximately $30.00 a person. Also, there may be an opportunity to eat boiled crawfish if they are in season. Again, we need advance notice. If privacy is an issue for you, we have no problems allowing you space. However, please know that this is a working farm. We will be on premises each day to feed animals, maintain property, repair buildings (if needed), train horses, etc. Also there are free range chickens roaming about the property at all times. If a member of your party is terrified of chickens...please take this into consideration. We want to be upfront with this information because we want you to have a lovely time at Hea-vin's Farm. <3

Other things to note

We are a working farm. My husband and I will be on premises at least once per day to feed animals, maintain property, perform daily chores, etc. Also, there are chickens that roam freely throughout the property. They will most likely approach you. They are very friendly. One of them is a small, white, fluffly rooster named Samurai Jack. He does NOT have spurs but he will try to spur you. It does NOT hurt at all. If it's an issue, I can pick him up during your stay. However, he has been wildly popular with other guests. Please do not kick him or hit him. We love him and have had him for years. You will love him too. :)

I cannot say enough about Heather and Kevin. We had to evacuate from Florida due to Irma and were fortunate enough to find their beautiful home. The house is beautiful and extremely clean. The property is beautiful and although you feel like you drive for awhile it's really just a 10 minute drive to the Mexican restaurant and less than 30 minutes to the water. Our kids were able to hold the rooster and go horseback riding and run around outside and had a blast. Heather checked on us and made sure we were safe and had everything we would need. We weren't able to arrive until late and she even went to the store and stocked us with some breakfast groceries. They made a stressful situation feel like a vacation and I cannot thank them enough! We would stay with them again in a heartbeat!

We thoroughly enjoyed our little get-away at Heavin's Farm! The kids loved interacting with the animals, and Heather and Kevin were so sweet to allow them to help with feedings. The house is decorated so beautifully, and everything was so clean and well stocked! We can't wait to come back again soon!

We had an amazing stay!Heather and Kevin were extremely hospitable, friendly, and generous. My kids will never forget their farm experience! They got to feed and hold animals, collect eggs, ride horses, and so much more! The house is charming, comfy, and clean. I highly recommend taking a trip here!

Great communication with Heather and Kevin. Very accommodating and friendly. Loved working with them on our reservation. Heather made certain we were updated on daily weather and was always making certain we didn't need anything. Excellent couple!!!

This little home in Southern Alabama is full of surprises! From its off-the-beaten-track location to a belligerent rooster named Samurai Jack, this home is the stuff of memories! Hands down, we enjoyed the indoor amenities best, particularly the shower with four jets and the attention to detail of our hostess, who left us cookies and juice along with menus from local restaurants.

We stayed for 5 days with our kids in July and couldn't have had a better time! The farm is quiet, relaxing and scenic. The farm animals are very entertaining, especially Samurai Jack. The house has all the amenities you can wish for. And the hosts, Heather and Kevin, are absolutely incredible and went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant stay. They gave us fresh eggs from the chicken coop and the kids got to help feed the animals and go horseback riding and they loved every minute of it. Lots of great memories from this place! We'll definitely come back next time we're in the area.

Response from Heather:
Jessica, Tiffany, and their lovely children were pure pleasure to host at our farm. We really enjoyed visiting with them. The kids were so much fun! Jessica and her family were very polite, respectful, courteous, and very friendly. We would love to have them stay again if ever in the area. They left the house super tidy and neat. They were great communicators. I would not hesitate at all to recommend them as guests for other Airbnb hosts. We are so glad that they chose our farm for their vacation destination. Really can't say enough about this awesome family. Be safe and be blessed!
