The Castaway was a perfect rental for our vacation! It is very clean and nicely decorated (with very beach-y decor). Although it looks small from outside, it is actually very spacious inside--the living room, dining area, and kitchen have an open floor plan and makes the house feel pretty big. The bedrooms are a little on the smaller side, but there's plenty of storage space, and besides, you'll be at the beautiful beaches all day, not in your room! The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and it really does feel like a home since it is fully furnished. You won't even need to bring beach chairs, or any beach supplies for that matter (except a cooler), since they provide chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys, and a huge wagon to carry everything in.
And the best part of all: it's totally pet friendly.
Finally, a few tips if this is your first time to Fort Morgan:
-this is pretty much the only stretch of the gulf coast that has dog-friendly beaches.
-you don't need to bring any nice clothes. They best places to eat are in Fort Morgan and are super-casual beach joints with great views of the bay.
-If you want a nice, relaxing trip, then I would try to avoid Gulf Shores as much as possible. We tried it out, and it was very crowded, loud--much like spring break, only during May. And the restaurants were absolutely terrible. The lines were long, and the food was Horrible. I mean, truly disgusting.

Owner's Response: We hope our future renters enjoy Castaway as much as our past renters have.
Come spend your vacation with us at Castaway in the Fort Morgan area of Gulf Shores and enjoy a little of paradise.
