We grew up near the beach and always dreamed of owning a house on the beach. We were thrilled when we found Fort Morgan, only 2 hours away from home (at the time). We purchased three lots and built our beach house 'On Dune Pond' the first year. We built 'Conch'ed Out' next and have been renting it out ever since. We have snowbirds that use it all winter and we enjoy repeat visits from many of our summer guests. Our daughter was nine years old when we first starting coming here, and she has grown to love it and share it with others through her photographs. We know your vacation here will be one you will always cherish! Chris & Sue Willoughby

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Fort Morgan is the ideal vacation spot; close to many major cities but it feels very far away.

The beach is never crowded - we spent our first summer on the sand waiting for the crowds to show up...they never did! Shelling, swimming, walking, reading, napping - it's all right here.

Fort Morgan is rich in history, nature and man-made attractions. The fort was made famous during the Civil War battle for Mobile Bay. Union Admiral Farragut sent his ships past the fort and into a torpedo field. His famous cry of 'damn the torpedos, full speed ahead' saved the Union ships and launched an attack on Fort Morgan. Confederate Admiral Buchanan surrendered the fort after a three week battle. We are surrounded by beautiful Gulf Island National Seashore, and one of our favorite hikes is to Shell Beach. It's an easy, flat hike and at the end you are rewarded with a gorgeous stretch of beach covered with shells - don't miss it. The young and young at heart will love a morning trip to the zoo in Gulf Shores, made famous by Animal Planet's show 'The Little Zoo That Could'. It is a short 20 mile drive from our house. Fishing is easy - at the shore or 1/4 mile away to catch a charter boat for a day in the Bay or the gulf.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about this property - great location - comfortable - was set up with everything we needed - beautiful beach - Stores were close if you run out of food or liquor - the week we stayed was perfect weather - "Ft. Morgan - was interesting history and enjoyed touring the Fort.
There are things to do in towns close, although we were happy at the beach and on property!

AMAZING stay at Conch'ed out!

AMAZING stay at Conch'ed out!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I were fortunate enough to book this for 4th of July week and were pleasantly surprised. Sue was helpful and accommodating from the beginning and the house was more than we could have imagined. My twins loved the bunk room and the game closet. My husband and I were thrilled with the amount of space and the well equipped kitchen. The beach was quiet and incredibly close- we were able to leave out our chairs and umbrellas with no issue. We will definitely be back! Thanks!

Perfect Place For Families Wanting a Relaxing Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a week here recently with our three boys (8,6, and 3). The house was perfect for our family. The boys enjoyed staying in the room with the bunk beds and enjoyed having their own TV they could watch. My wife and I were happy with the master bedroom and bathroom. The house is perfect for a beach vacation with an outdoor shower as well as a shower off the laundry room near the entrance where we could hose down the kids again once we were inside. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need, including a steamer pot for fresh seafood if you want to catch your own crabs. Big comfy couches, cool air conditioning. They place has Direct TV with some premium channels which was great. Only beef was that it would have been nice to have it in High Def, but really a minor thing. Kids loved the board games in the closet.

Beach experience was amazing. It is not crowded at all and we were able to leave all our chairs and umbrella on the beach all day and evening. Lots of fun for the kids on the beach. We went into Gulf Shores to do go karts (and for a visit to Quick Care for ear infection!) and found the trip quick and easy. We really enjoyed eating at Sassy Bass Restaurant that is close to the place and my wife loved her nacho pile we brought home from Tacky Jacks. Ordered pizza from Fort Morgan Pizza...way overpriced for small pizza, but close and fast.

Overall the experience at this house was awesome. Had never done VRBO before but this was painless and great. Good communication, quick and prompt service, and an amazing place. Would certainly return to this property!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that your family had such a great time! It sounds like you hit all the high points on your stay to the area. As anyone who stays in the area, or owns rental property knows, it is sometimes difficult to stay current with all the new technology. We hope to add High-def cable to our homes soon (we were last on the block to have flat-screen!) We are glad that lack-of did not limit your fun....thanks for the feedback, and again we thank you for choosing "Conch'ed Out" for your family beach vacation. Come back soon!

My family loved this house it was like being at home but on the beach, we had everything we needed the house was very clean just like the photos. This was my first time renting from vrbo all transactions were prompt has sue was super nice over the phone and through email. My kids and husband didn't want to leave it was the Best vacation we have ever had. We took the ferry to mobile bay ate our favorite place lamberts shopped the outlet mall and of course enjoyed the beach. The neighboring houses had family's also everyone was very nice no loud music or partying, I loved back deck in the evenings and after dark. What we loved most was being able to get up and walk to the beach my girls were there directly after breakfast every morning ! We will rent this house or another from this owner next trip were new customers for along time to come.

Great vacation! The house was great!

  • 5 of 5
We had 2 families of 4 staying at Conch'ed out is past week. We all had a fabulous vacation! The house was very clean and very comfortable for everyone. Each adult couple had a king size bed and the bunk beds were perfect for the kids. The walk to the beach was a breeze! It felt just like home with all the amenities including wifi so that we could all "stay connected". I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. It is a great place for the price!

Great location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5
My family of 9 found this home to be very comfortable. It is even closer to the beach than we realized - a very short walk to the white sand, which you can easily see from the deck. It was quite relaxing to drink iced tea and read on the deck while glancing at the Gulf of Mexico to the south and Mobile Bay to the north - you really can see both. We saw dolphins several times. There are many attractions in the area to entertain you when you want to leave the house, but the proximity to the uncrowded beach means you are happy to spend a day "at home", too.

The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed in case someone wanted to cook, and the game closet kept any potential boredom away when the tweens and teen were told to stay inside. We consider home a very good value and a wonderful vacation spot.

Fort Morgan sits on a spit of land at the mouth of Mobile Bay. From our house you have great views of both the Gulf of Mexico to the south and Mobile Bay to the north. You can also see the Mobile shipping channel - interesting to those who enjoy something a little unique. There is lots of history available if you visit the two Civil War-era forts that guard the mouth of Mobile Bay. A ferry trip across the bay takes you to Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines as well as the SeaLab - a fun trip with or without your car. Nearby enjoy an easy hike at Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Great shelling on an uncrowded beach. So much to do!
