Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
The Castaway was a perfect rental for our vacation! It is very clean and nicely decorated (with very beach-y decor). Although it looks small from outside, it is actually very spacious inside--the living room, dining area, and kitchen have an open floor plan and makes the house feel pretty big. The bedrooms are a little on the smaller side, but there's plenty of storage space, and besides, you'll be at the beautiful beaches all day, not in your room! The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and it really does feel like a home since it is fully furnished. You won't even need to bring beach chairs, or any beach supplies for that matter (except a cooler), since they provide chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys, and a huge wagon to carry everything in.
And the best part of all: it's totally pet friendly.
Finally, a few tips if this is your first time to Fort Morgan:
-this is pretty much the only stretch of the gulf coast that has dog-friendly beaches.
-you don't need to bring any nice clothes. They best places to eat are in Fort Morgan and are super-casual beach joints with great views of the bay.
-If you want a nice, relaxing trip, then I would try to avoid Gulf Shores as much as possible. We tried it out, and it was very crowded, loud--much like spring break, only during May. And the restaurants were absolutely terrible. The lines were long, and the food was Horrible. I mean, truly disgusting.

We had the best time! "Our" beach house was just as decribed--very comfortable, neat and clean. The owners were available for contact and very quick in responding to my emails. Sheets, towels, cookware, dishes and so much more were provided for added convenience. Our best meals were made right in the "Castaway kitchen" (fried shrimp and margaritas!). Tacky Jacks restaurant is within walking distance and a 20 minute beautiful drive/ride--(bring your Harley)--will get you to all the excitement in Gulf Shores.

The beach is very close--maybe 100 yards from the house--and not crowded at all. The sand is defintely "Florida quality" and the water was warm. The wagon provided by the owner made it very easy to carry our gear plus the chairs and umbrella (also provided). We even left our "camp" set up while we went back to the house for lunch.

We suggest kennels if you wish to leave your pets alone--the house is secure and the street is quiet.
While we did make several outings to Gulf Shores and Foley (Lambert's Cafe, Krispy Kreme Donuts), our best day trip was taking the ferry across the bay to Bellingrath Gardens and Home.

We've been to the Destin/Fort Walton, FL area which is popular with so many Texans, but we were more impressed with the Alabama coast and Fort Morgan (closer and pet friendly) as were my sister and her husband who flew into Pensacola from NY to join us. We will defintely be returning to Fort Morgan and "The Castaway" for future visits!

All the comforts of home!

We enjoyed our stay at Castaway. Although Tropical Storm Lee joined us, we were able to simply relax! The house is clean and cozy with all the amenities of home. We were especially thankful we could bring our dog, Josey. She enjoyed relaxing just as much as we did!! We look forward to our next stay at Castaway! :)

We would definitely visit again!

We were more than happy with our quaint little beach house. It was a short walk to the wonderful beach. We brought sand toys with us but it wasn't necessary. There were a lot of sand toys already there. The wagon was extremely handy to have. The beds were nice and clean. The washer and dryer were an added bonus. I came home with hardly any vacation laundry. When we arrived the fridge wasn't keeping things cool. I called the owner and there was a repairman there within 30 minutes! It turned out that the vent in the back just needed to be vacuumed. I was impressed at how fast someone arrived to fix it. Since the house is located where there are other privately owned homes, the beach was uncrowded. We saw dolphins out in the water each day! We had a wonderful experience and we would recommend it to anyone!

Great Little Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
I had a very relaxing stay at Castaway with my toy poodle. The house was clean, comfortable and lovely. Fort Morgan isn't as crowded as other beaches and there is a park at the remains of the actual fort if you feel like doing a little sight-seeing in the area. This is a great location for a little quiet "down time." I'd definitely recommend this rental to others seeking a cozy spot near the beach.

The Charming Castaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Castaway from May 13-May 20th and I couldn't be happier. Janice (the owner) was always very responsive and made sure that all of our needs and questions were met. While we were there, we went to the beach every day and it was beautiful. All of the neighbors on the way to the beach were very friendly as well. We got to see dolphins every day, we saw some people catching fish and they even caught a small shark off the beach, and we had no one to bother us while we were on the beach. It's basically the most remote location with very few people around, which is great compared to the busy part of Gulf Shores. We have a 2 month old baby and a dog and everything was perfect. The house is cozy, with comfy beds and a great kitchen to keep all of your food items in tact. The dishes, silverware, and appliances were all very clean and kept up. Their washer and dryer were very useful too because we washed everything before we left so we didn't have to when we got back home.

Overall, the location, the atmosphere, decorations, etc. were above par and everything went well. Fort Morgan is a cheap day of fun with tons of history! Tacky Jacks has great food and service, and the drive into Gulf Shores is beautiful. If we go back to Gulf Shores/Ft. Morgan, I'll definitely consider staying at Castaway again!

A+ by my standards, which are very high. Have no worries as this will be the best decision you've ever made when picking a beach house for a relaxing, enjoyable vacation! Thanks again to Janice and Warren for allowing us to stay in their home. God Bless!!!
