Fort Morgan House Rental Photos and Description

We don't add on any fees to our rates. What you see is what you get! We are currently offering a 25% to 35% discount on nightly and weekly rates for any open slots for the remainder of 2014. There is a 4 night minimum for the discounted rate. (Receive a 25% discount for stays of 4 or 5 nights. Receive a 35% discounts for stays of 6 nights or more).

You won't be disappointed!

Sandy Bottoms is a warm, comfortable, cozy beach front home with character plus! View of dunes, sugar white sand, sunrise, sunset, and the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! You will feel right at home the minute you walk in the door!

Sandy Bottoms is located on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, about 15.5 miles from the intersection of Fort Morgan Road (Highway 180 West) and Highway 59 in Gulf Shores. You can be there in about 15 to 20 minutes!

If it is peaceful relaxation and seclusion that you desire, the Fort Morgan Peninsula is the place to be! Fort Morgan is surrounded by water, with the Mobile Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other - the most beautiful natural beaches in the area. Steeped in history, it is a place where nature abounds. The coastal dunes between the house and the Gulf are federally owned and managed as critical habitat for the Alabama beach mouse and nesting sea turtles! You won't see high rise, high density condo buildings; rather, you will feel like you have come to a place that is lost in time. It attracts like a magnet! Once you have visited, you will want to come back again and again!

The house is light and bright with an open floor plan in the main living area, making it a great space for family and friends to gather. Right off the living and dining area you will find a desk where you can use your laptop and take advantage of the wireless Internet. The living room and master bedroom both have access to the large deck and view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

The living room has plenty of seating with a large sectional sofa with chaise, and an additional comfy chair with ottoman. We have hosted gatherings of two other families and were very comfortable! Enjoy watching TV or movies with our surround sound home entertainment system with Blu-Ray, and satellite with premium channels such as HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. You can also watch movies from your Internet movie account, such as Netflix and Amazon. Connect your favorite Bluetooth enabled device wirelessly to listen to your favorite tunes.

For dining, we offer a large dining table with six chairs, plus two barstools at the kitchen counter. The living room, dining room and kitchen flooring is ceramic tile, so you don't have to worry about carpet stains.

Our kitchen always gets rave reviews from our guests! There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area; however, if you enjoy preparing your own meals, you won't find anything lacking in our kitchen. If you do, let us know, and we will see if we can add whatever you need!

The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size iron bed, large armoire, TV with satellite and DVD, and walk in closet. The master bath has been updated with a large tiled shower, custom travertine vanity with two sinks, tiled floor and walls, and built-in shelving and storage. The second and third bedroom are separate from the master. One bedroom has two twin beds, and the other has a queen bed and desk. Both rooms have chests and closets for storage. The second bath is located just off the hallway, and has been recently updated with a pedestal sink and porcelain tub with shower.

Step out of the living room or master bedroom to a spacious 360 square feet deck, which provides an additional living area and dining area. Enjoy an awesome view of the dunes, sugar white sand, and blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! The deck is built with composite deck materials, which means no splinters and no hot wood on your feet! This comfortable outdoor living area includes a dining table with six chairs, two additional chairs, two loungers, and two side tables. This is a great spot to view the awe-inspiring sunrise and sunset, catch some rays, watch the dolphins frolic, or just relax and enjoy the beverage of your choice. You may even be lucky enough to get a free show from the Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron, as they sometimes practice up and down our beach! Want to get out of the sun, but still enjoy outdoor living and dining? There is an additional covered outdoor living and dining area below the house, which includes a wooden picnic table for six people, as well as a porch swing and two Adirondack chairs for additional seating. You will love the enclosed shower downstairs which has hot and cold water, vanity with sink, lighting and electrical outlet (3rd bathroom). You must experience a hot shower where you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the crashing waves!

Step from the beach front deck to a boardwalk that leads to a covered shared gazebo with built-in seating. We have enjoyed many good times gathering with friends from the other three homes in our little neighborhood! From the gazebo step right onto the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Our uncrowded and unspoiled beach is natural and one of the widest sections of beach on the entire peninsula. Our beach is not groomed, and you can happily hunt for driftwood, shells, sea glass, and other treasures. You might spot dolphins swimming and frolicking in the surf, brown pelicans flying in formation, or blue herons and sea gulls right on the beach in front of the house. Relax, unwind, listen to the surf, soak up the sun, frolic in the waves, enjoy some shore fishing, watch nature, enjoy awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets, and star gaze at night. You won't be bored, but if you do want more entertainment, there is plenty to do and see in nearby Foley, Gulf Shores, or Orange Beach, just minutes away.

About Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager

Sandy Bottoms is very special to us! Our little getaway, home away from home! It is not just a rental property to us, but a home! We enjoy sharing it with our guests, and want them to think of it as their own home away from home. We visit for several weeks at a time, several times a year. We love everything the area has to offer!

Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager purchased this house in 2001

Why Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager chose Fort Morgan

We have visited many wonderful beaches in our 30 years of knowing each other. But none of them attracted us or felt more like the best home for us than Fort Morgan. We are casual and relaxed, and are more attracted to a laid back feel. That is why we chose Fort Morgan. We love the fact that you can see the beach from the road, and there are no high rise, high density condo buildings. Our area contains mostly modest, privately owned beach homes without the glitz and glamour of other beach resort areas. We enjoy the quiet and peaceful relaxation we feel when we are at the house. We absolutely love hearing the surf from the Gulf and the views are amazing! You can even see dolphins and sea birds right from our beach-front deck! We couldn't be happier owning a little slice of paradise!

What makes this house unique

We strive to provide extra amenities not usually found in rental homes. Many of our guests have said our beach house is even better stocked than their own homes! We are attentive owners, and make frequent visits to our home to make sure it is clean, updated and fresh.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 5th time to Gulf Shores and it was an awesome time. Weather was the best and we loved Sandy Bottoms. As a family of 5 this was the best single family home we have rented. Our favorites while here: dolphins every day, non crowded beaches, great amenities and together time. We love DeSoto's and Sea N Suds for food. The 3 boys loved your beach and so did the parents!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
This home is better than the pictures! The owners are the most professional and organized I have ever dealt with. Their kitchen is stocked with every possible thing you could imagine and it's extremely clean. The home had plenty of room for a couple of families to enjoy. The outdoor speakers were a bonus, we used them everyday. Our 1 yr. old son enjoyed dancing on the deck to the music channels from direct tv. The outdoor shower was wonderful. It's silly how much you can enjoy an open air shower but since it is completely enclosed and equipped with hot and cold water and electric, it was a detail that we all loved. The beach is like having your own piece of heaven. There were times that the closest others to us were 1/2 mile away. No crowds, no traffic just peaceful and beautiful. These are memories to last a life time. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!

A Super Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
For the second summer in a row, we spent a week at Sandy Bottoms. This fully stocked beach house has all the modern conveniences of home and is steps away from a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, uncrowded beach.

We loved the outdoor (heated!) shower and used it everyday as we headed in from the beach. With 4 teenage girls, it helped to have the 3rd shower!

Just as last summer, we found everything we could possibly need in the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed cooking there as well as eating at several local restaurants the owners recommended. For me, it is like staying as a guest at a very good friend's house.

We will definitely return next year.

Perfect Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Sandy Bottoms for the first time last week. It will definitely not be our last. We have been vacationing in Fort Morgan for years and have been searching for a beach house that would accommodate our large family. (We have 5 children, ages 11-16). Sandy Bottoms was perfect. We all were able to sit comfortably in the living room and watch movies together. We usually stay in and cook during the week and the kitchen had anything that we could wish for. The beach was perfect and we enjoyed every day. The house is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. I can't wait to get back next year!!

Our family has stayed at Sandy Bottoms at least 4 times now and we would not think of staying anywhere else. The house is well stocked for those who want to prepare their own meals. We enjoy the location as it is on the beach away from the big crowds, but close enough to town for any activities that our boys might want to do. The furnishings are up to date and we love the new exterior paint color! We all enjoyed fishing from the beach this trip and caught enough fish for dinner two nights. We are already thinking about our next trip back to Fort Morgan and to Sandy Bottoms.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Sandy Bottoms last week and loved it! It was beautifully decorated with all the amenities you could ever need. We have 3 kids (ages 12, 10, and 8) and the house provided plenty of room for us. The beach was wonderful - very clean and not crowded. We saw tons of dolphins and had fun catching crabs at night. We had a wonderful week - one of our best vacations ever!!
