Tropical Dunes is a luxurious 5 bedroom, 4.5 professionally decorated Gulf Front beach house. It is located in Fort Morgan, in the beautiful “Dunes” gated community with access to 2 swimming pools (one partially indoors), workout room and hot tub. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are only 45 yards away. This peaceful community borders a nature reserve.

All amenities are located conveniently close to the house. The pools are 50 yards away. Everyone will enjoy the easy boardwalk beach access. Parents will appreciate the beach cart we provide to assist with easily and comfortably transporting beach gear down the boardwalk.

Families will have a wonderful time at Tropical Dunes. We offer several amenities especially for small children including: children friendly plates and cups, 2 pack-n-plays, high chair, booster seat, security gates, bed rails, beach toys, board games, and a DVD & VHS library. For the older kids you will also find an game console and an assortment of games.

Throughout our common area you can enjoy unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico. For additional viewing enjoyment we provide a 50” TV in the living room and plenty of seating space. In the dining area you will find seating for 15 people. The kitchen is fully accessorized for large groups providing every detail to make cooking a pleasure.

One of the most pleasant times to enjoy the breath-taking views is at sunset when our two large covered Gulf Front decks provide family and friends with the perfect location for a relaxing drink while enjoying the views, the warm breezes, the changing colors of the sky and frequently opportunities to see dolphins playing in the water.

After a full day of frolicking at the beach the comfort of our bedrooms will provide the perfect setting for privacy and relaxation. We have two Oceanfront suites with blackout curtains for a sound nights sleep. We have one suite on the main level and the other four upstairs. You will find TVs in all bedrooms. All our bed spreads are custom-made. Our sleeping arrangements are flexible: 4 king size beds, 1 bunk (single over single), 1 custom bunk (double over queen) and 1 queen sleeper.

About Carla Rizzati

We purchased this house 10 years ago. We wanted a quite and beautiful place to enjoy time with family and we found it!

Carla Rizzati purchased this house in 2003

Why Carla Rizzati chose Gulf Shores

This property is gulf front on a gated subdivision along the Fort Morgan peninsula. We love the location, low density, next door to a nature reserve.

What makes this house unique

The location, on the beach, across the street from the Gulf Shores Marina is fantastic!

This home is a perfect family vacation home. The bedrooms are large with private baths. There are two large decks which are great for eating, sunning, and hanging out and watching the ocean. The beachfrint location is fabulous!!! You are at the end of the beach and do not have to fight crowds for a spot in the sand!! We had 2 families and gramma and all had plenty of space. Thanks again for sharing this home with us!! Hopefully we will be back!!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose this Tropical Dunes house for our first vacation rental spring break experience. Our group included Grandma plus three families with five children ages 8 months to 7 years. Everyone loved the house with separate bedrooms but also a great common area for all to gather. The kitchen was equipped with anything we could have wanted. Porch and balcony provided beautiful ocean views.

Since we had young children we especially appreciated the chairs, bed rails, safety gates, plastic dishes, numerous beach toys and the cart we used for our numerous trips to the beach. The washer and dryer was handy for the wet towels and kids' clothes.

During our stay we didn't leave for additional entertainment since we spent all our time at the beach. It was a secluded beautiful beach area for swimming, playing in sand, watching dolphins, collecting shells and relaxing in general.

Our family enjoyed the vacation house stay and plan to consider this house for future trips.

Two families plus Grandparents

  • 5 of 5

Great house with 6 adults and 5 children. Grandparents got the first floor master, less stairs. Each family got two bedrooms upstairs. Every bedroom has a bathroom and it's own tv, so it worked out great for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped including kid friendly cups and dishes. Not only is the house right on the sand (we opened our bedroom window at night to listen to the ocean) but it's one of the last few houses before the protected natural habitat area so crowds are not a problem. Having a marina with a reasturant/bar right across the street was a nice benefit - highly recommend the fish tacos!

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Tropical Dunes for our entire family for the week of Thanksgiving. It was a fabulous time! With 8 adults and 2 teenagers, the house was perfect! Plenty of space for everyone, beautiful ocean views, and everything we needed was provided in the house. The kitchen was newly remodeled, and carpet was new, so the direct TV in every room had been disconnected. The owners were extremely responsive in helping us to resolve these issues. Great house and great owners to work with! Loved our week away!

We loved everything!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Great water! Great area!

We had our family for a visit ( 9 people). Five bedrooms was just right for all of us. The kitchen had all of the cooking utensils that we needed. Best part of the property was being right on the gulf. We visited Fort Morgan (almost next door) and got to walk the beach each day and evening. It is a little far to go to the grocery so get your groceries before your trip out of Gulf Shores going to the house. We all voted that we would use this property again when we go to Gulf Shores.

Nice beach home.. easy access to/from the ferry

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice vacation home for our family. We had 10 people and there was plenty of room for everyone to have "their" space. The kitchen was well stocked with the key necessities preventing the need to bring many items from home. There were many beach chairs, toys, etc that we used so that we didn't need to even bring ours from home. The kids had a great time. We loved both the lower and upper patios that faced the ocean. All the bedrooms / bathrooms provided the privacy, we all wanted. The only "complaint" anyone had is the access to the beach. There is direct access to the beachwalk, but, once you accessed the walkway, you still had a walk to get to the beach. If anyone has any trouble walking a distance, then, this could be difficult. I thought the beach access would be a little more direct than it actually was in reality. However, this would not prevent us from renting this house again. Everyone loved it. This location had easy access to the Gulf Shores Marina ( across the street). We chartered a boat for deep sea fishing, and, could leave from this marina instead of driving to Orange Beach - 45 minutes away. I would highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Cathy, for a lovely review. I just wanted to clarify, the boardwalk protects the dunes (per Fish & Wildlife Dept). Guests with mobility issues usually tell us they appreciate having the boardwalk because it is easier than having to walk in the sand. I also have added a picture of the boardwalk so future guests can have the perspective of how far they need to walk, which is around 30 yards.
