Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to tell you how much we all enjoyed our time in your home out Ft Morgan Rd. We have been renting ever since homes were available following Frederick in Sept, 1979, and have always stayed between the 2 mile and about 6 mile marker. Your home is by far the nicest we have ever stayed in—by far. No other house we have stayed in down there can come close.







When we arrived late Tuesday night, we looked under the house and all started laughing. After lugging all the usual stuff plus all the beach toys for the grandchildren all the way to GS, there under your house was every one of the identical items: kites, beach horseshoes, buckets, skim board, crab net—everything we had loaded up.







I hope that when we are all able to go down together at the same time again, (probably early 2013), that your home is available for that particular week.

Family from Arkansas

The beach house was absolutely awesome. It was everything I had hoped it would be and to be honest it actually exceeded our expectations. My wife and I, our son, his wife and two small kids, our daughter and my wife's aunt all made the trip. All of us had our own bedroom and bath so having our own "space" made it almost like having separate hotel rooms but with the benefit of the common living area. The fully stocked kitchen allowed us to eat most meals at the beach house so we only went out a few times. Honestly, we didn't want to give up any more "beach time" than we absolutely had to. We also took advantage of the full washer and drier which with my crew was a huge benefit. The view from the house and deck is awesome and the set up is almost like having your own private beach. One of my favorite times of day was having morning coffee and watching the sun rise from the deck. We took full advantage of our beach time and the "boogie boarding" was a blast. There were several times that we watched dolphins swim by which was an added treat. My grandson is 4 and hunting for sand crabs at dark was his favorite part of the day. Watching him chase those little things down the beach was priceless.

I hope to be able to do this many times in the future and I don't think we will find accommodations that suit us as well as your beach house.

Thank you again.

Our family loved the experience

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our family of 7, especially the four bedrooms and baths, and quite comfortable and clean. The common areas (kitchen and family room) offered plenty of room and most everything we needed; the bathrooms could have used more soap and toilet paper. The partially covered deck was very nice and offered an excellent view of the beach and Gulf. Access to the beach was via a short walk on the path through the dunes. Beach toys/chairs were available to supplement what we brought.

Communication with the owners was quick and easy, with lots of information about the house and area provided. We had a wonderful experience and would definitely return to this house and beach!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the input. We really work hard to make the beach house a good experience for our families. We rely upon them to supply consumables such as t.p., soap, etc and we'll make sure that is clearer in the future.

We had a wonderful time. The view was wonderful. Everything was very clean. Everything worked properly. And the stores and eating places were within 10-15 minutes. The people were so friendly. What a great experience. You have the gulf right in front of you. But if your kids want the excitement of other teenagers there is a public beach within 15 minutes were the kids can go parasailing or just be around lots of other kids.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful experience. My family and I have stayed in condos in Gulf Shores and really wanted a more home like comfort. The owner was very friendly, contacting me thru e mails, and sent plenty of information prior to our trip to get us up to par on area restaurants and activities. The home was just as advertised. Cean. Well maintained. here was alot of information regarding the owner's own eperiences re: restaurants. We went to serveral suggested and was not disappointed. The trek to the shoreline is alittle difficult due to the deep sand, it would have been perfect if there was a wooden walkway provided like the neighboring home. We would definitely return as well as suggest it to friends and family. Worst part of the week was leaving!!!!

Map

Car: necessary

Golf: Activities: In addition to the usual sunning and shelling you can't beat Ft Morgan for a variety of things to do. Fish in the surf or on the bay lot that belongs to Cabana Beach. Walk the trails of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Explore historic Fort Morgan with 'the bloodstain on the step'. Fort Morgan was made famous during the Civil War by Admiral Farragut who gave his famous order, 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.'

Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula are golf courses located on Fort Morgan.

The hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores is just a short drive away.
