Situated on the Fort Morgan peninsula on the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf Shores, AL, the GREAT SEAHORSE property offers all of the amenities needed in a great private beach community.

The GREAT Seahorse Beach House is by far the best overall value being offered in all of Gulf Shores. This three bedroom and two bath fully furnished beach home has been the destination of choice for many beach seekers over the past several years. We have many repeat guests every year with some coming in for months at a time. We feel that this is the ultimate compliment! We think that you will not find a better value anywhere in Gulf Shores.

Our private beach access, the shopping, the golfing, Civil War Fort Morgan-Alabama State Historic Site, the museums, the fishing, the restaurants, the concerts, the beaches, the Mobile Bay Ferry, the sunsets, and the National Shrimp Festival are all awaiting you! Our location is perfect. We are located in the private beach community of Surfside Shores right on the Fort Morgan peninsula. The Seahorse is Gulf side and is walking distance down (about four minutes) to the sugar white beaches! We are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gulf Shores yet only a 15 minute drive into town. You get the R & R that you deserve but can still access all that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has to offer.

GOLF-GOLF-GOLF! There must be 15 courses within 30 minutes away and two within 15 minutes away! Kiva Dunes (Jerry Pate-Developer) is only 1 mile away! The #1 voted best golf course in all of Alabama!

Looking to decompress? You can sleep in late here, throw a steak on the grill, and then take a walk on the beach. It's only a four minute walk down to our private beach access or you can drive it in 30 seconds and park at the beach. That's what we normally do since we can load up our beach supplies and just park at the beach. No loud music and crowds here in our private beach community. Looking to party or celebrate? Take your choice of all the attractions in Gulf Shores and nearby Orange Beach. Need to stay connected? The Seahorse offers FREE internet access via a cable wireless router. Many love to visit the world famous Flora-Bama bar. Don't forget the annual Mullet Toss! Need a slot machine or blackjack fix? Biloxi, MS is just down I-10. It features no less than seven casinos featuring all of the Las Vegas casino games. The Beau Rivage (MGM property), The Hard Rock Casino and Cafe, and The Grand (Harrahs property) are the most popular. Need a history lesson? Fort Morgan and the Fort Morgan Museum is just five minutes away. It's the Civil War Fort famous for 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!' Need to get 'gone fishing?' Fort Morgan Marina is only about five minutes away and have daily charters. The Fort Morgan Pier is a public fishing pier as well and it's only about five minutes away. It's a great place to take the kids and watch the boats unload their catch.

Let us know if you have any special requirements and we'll do our best to accommodate you. The Seahorse has been in the family now for about 10 years and we try to go the extra mile for our guests! We take pride in treating our guests just like we like to be treated when away on vacation ourselves. Let us know too about your vacation home. We would like to talk to you about a possible swap out between our homes for upcoming vacations we might have.

Flying in? Jack Edwards Airport is the local airport in Gulf Shores about 20 minutes away. Commercial flights are available in Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL.

Need WiFi and internet? It's here and FREE of charge.

THINGS YOU WILL WANT TO BRING:

Golf clubs, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, (towels and linens for the house are provided), ice, charcoal, charcoal lighter fluid, grill brush, coolers, sunscreen, shampoo, a good book, DVD/VCR movies.

THINGS NOT TO BRING: Cell phone, worries, stress, the in-laws, diets, and bad attitudes! JUST KIDDING! If you bring any of this with you, most of it will change for the better during your stay! We promise! :)

The Moores have spent all of their lives in Alabama and enjoy accommodating vacationers into the Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area along with Lake Martin. We've been accommodating vacationers now for over 20 years. We own our rental homes so we take care of them and our guests the way they should be. It's all about 'The Golden Rule' you know! We don't allow any management agencies and/or companies to rent out or manage our properties. We do all of this ourselves. This allows us to keep our rates low and to customize and deliver our personal touch to each and every guest!

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

GOLF-GOLF-GOLF!! There must be at least 15 golf courses within 30 minutes away and two are within 10 minutes away! The World Famous Kiva Dunes Golf Course (Voted #1 course in Alabama and Jerry Pate developed) is only ONE MILE away! You gotta play Kiva Dunes!

BIRD LOVERS: The Alabama Birding Coastal Trail has a stop in Fort Morgan.

CIVIL WAR and HISTORY BUFFS: The Mobile Bay Civil War Trail. Fort Morgan State Park. 'Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!' You can almost hear the command of Admiral David Farragut as he led his troops into the battle of Mobile Bay. Today Fort Morgan is a testament to the evolution of American coast defense fortifications from 1834 to World War II. It's a history lesson waiting to be explored. Some regard it as 'one of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World'. Fort Morgan was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2007 it was listed as 'one of the nation's 10 most endangered battle sites' by the Civil War Preservation Trust in History Under Siege: A Guide to America's Most Endangered Civil War Battlefields. Just 6 miles away! Then take the Mobile Bay Ferry over to see anther Civil War site, Fort Gaines. We think that this part of the Gulf of Mexico is 'the last frontier' in that it has not been commercialized like Panama City, Destin, Pensacola, and even Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to an extent. You really feel like you are on your own private peninsula here! As one member of my family stated when we purchased our first property here, 'Let's move here!'.

Mobile Bay Ferry takes you over to Dauphin Island where you can then visit Fort Gaines, USS Alabama, and all of Mobile, AL. Biloxi, MS (Las Vegas of the South!) is just east of Mobile via I-10. Covered picnic table area under the house along with beach rinse-off shower area. Fort Morgan Museum and Civil War History just a few miles down the peninsula. Very private and family oriented beach community. Perfect environment for stargazers in that there are no city lights around. You can see stars for days! This is one of my personal reasons why I love this location! Fort Morgan Marina is five minutes away and has daily deep sea fishing charters. Come and watch the fleet unload their catch. Tacky Jacks is there too. Great food!

WE ARE HERE RIGHT NOW!!!

We have been here two days now and I just HAD to write an early review. First, when you rent this house, you will deal with the man who owns it, Derrick. The house is the best deal out here. There are houses surrounding this one that are not as nice; that are rentals through the various rental management companies and cost double the price. The house is extremely clean and cold and comfortable. We brought our dogs and the house is a perfect accomodation for your pets! I would recommend if you don't like the short walk to the beach, to bring a golf cart. Definately bring a wagon to carry your beach chairs and umbrellas etc..
What I really love is that the house is just far enough from the sand that it is private, but close enough to get there with minimal effort. The ice cream truck comes by twice per day for the kids. We have had the air conditioner on 70 and it is chilly cool inside. The back balcony is so nice and the chairs are very comfortable. We have eaten several meals out there, and it is shady and breezy and nice. Bring mosquito repellant or a citronella candle because the mosquitoes are abundant and mammoth sized. There is a bog next door, which is kinda cool because there are some really pretty lillypads and other water plants that are nice to look at.
We leave our beach set-up overnight. We tie the chairs all together and so far they have not been tampered with. The beach out here is less crowded!! We love Ft. morgan for this reason!!
There is an outdoor shower below the house and a table/chairs. There is also enough space to park two large vehicles underneath. There are several vacant lots in front of this house, and we LOVE that (more privacy).
We are very happy with this house!!
FROM THE DANIELS AND THE CRAWLEY FAMILIES WE THANK YOU!!!

We recently stayed at the Seahorse for January and February. We found it to be clean, roomy, comfortable and had everything we needed to make it a home for 2 months. The owner is very conscientious and easy to get a hold of if you need anything! Will definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Seahorse Beach House. It was so much quieter than the main drag in Gulfshores/ Orange Beach!! The home was well equipped and comfortable. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to all my questions.

This was our first vacation home rental. We chose the Seahorse because of all of the good reviews. We were very pleased that the pictures, descriptions and reviews were accurate representations. All appliances worked great and more importantly, the house was clean and comfortable. We really appreciated being allowed to bring our dogs. The drive from Wisconsin was an easy 1,000 miles and the Seahorse allowed us to relax once we got to Alabama. We enjoyed the 4 block walk to the beach. We walked the beach every day and met great people, however, it was never crowded. Definitely take a dolphin cruise and check out the state parks, fort and wildlife refuge. Our only suggestion would be to fix the patio door/screen so that it closes completely to help eleviate biting insects from getting into the house.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your house.

Crabbing and shrimping on the beach. Watch the catch unload daily at the marina. Stargazing. You can see stars like you have never seen before at night. This is because there are no city lights in sight! Beautiful warm Fort Morgan nights are the absolute best!
