About Karen Gable

We live and work in Cullman AL. Our family consist of 2 grown daughters and their husbands and 1 grown son. We currently have 4 grandchildren.

Karen Gable purchased this house in 2011

Why Karen Gable chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We decided to purchase a house in Fort Morgan area because we love the beach, but not the crowds. Family vacations have always been important to us and we have traveled to Gulf Shores as long as I can remember.

What makes this house unique

This house is a single dwelling, right on the beach. I fell in love with this place the moment I stepped out of the car!

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had a nearly perfect vacation at Coco Beach House on Fort Morgan Beach. We've loved this house every time we've stayed there, and the upgrades this year made it even nicer! The view from the panoramic windows in Coco Beach are amazing; even when you've moved inside for the night you won't forget that you're on the beach. In addition to the "take-your-breath-away view", some of the things that we really appreciate about the house are the large gathering areas for the family, the upstairs bedroom that is perfect for the kids, the large master bedroom with the walk-in closet to stow our bags, the walk-in pantry for grocery storage, the washer and dryer to keep up with our massive laundry needs, and even the outdoor shower. The house is a perfect fit for our large family, and the beach experience is always wonderful. It seems that every Coco Beach House vacation is a bit different, and this year was the best yet! Besides having absolutely perfect weather, we saw so many dolphins this year. We also had one day when tons of starfish were washing ashore. The kids were fascinated by them (and quickly returned each to the water.) One highpoint of this vacation was when we got to observe the Fort Morgan Share the Beach Turtle Team excavate a sea turtle nest that was too close to the shore line and relocate all 96 eggs further back near the sand dunes! We were so sad for our vacation to end, and hope to return some day.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to have you and your family stay with us. I couldn't wait for my guest that continue to come back to see the upgrades that we prepared over the winter for them. This is my second time to meet you and get acquainted with your beautiful kids! Please come again. Thanks, Karen Gable

Best Beach House Ever

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again for another perfect beach vacation and family reunion. Coco Beach never disappoints. We look forward to next year...same time, same place. Owner's communication is prompt, accurate and always helpful. If you need more space than Coco Beach offers, check out the owners' new house located directly behind Coco Beach. It's fabulous with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Rent both places for a large group. Highly recommend. Thanks Karen!

Owner's Response: It was really great getting to meet the whole gang! Showing off Sugar Shack was really fun and helped get my nervous stomach settled. We do have the new house on VRBO now. Our new number for Sugar Shack is VRBO 738238. Thank you for the time and effort of writing a review. PS: Thanks to your niece for helping an old crazy woman and her granddaughter put bikes on my car. Kent & Karen Gable

Best Beach Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Coco Beach for several years to celebrate grandmother's birthday on July Fourth. This year she turned 93. She embodies: Live long. Live strong. Coco Beach is the perfect beach house with gigantic windows all along the curved front providing excellent beach views of the ocean, beach, birds and dolphins. All the furnishings are pretty and up to date, yet relaxed enough that we didn't have to worry about the rambunctious 5 year old breaking anything. The owner Karen stocks the house with every thing a family could need for a great beach get away: quality pots, pans, knives, flatware and tableware. You might not think this is important, but we have stayed in places there the cookware was so dirty and disgusting that we went out and bought more. Everything at Coco Beach is always spotlessly clean. I highly recommend this house for the best beach house ever!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We have really tried hard to stay on top of things. I was really excited to meet The Birthday Lady! She looks great. I am so glad that you have chosen "Coco Beach" to celebrate. Looking forward to many more birthday parties with your family. Kent and Karen Gable

FABULOUS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Coco was the best house we've ever stayed in! I can't say enough about how wonderful and perfect everything was! We chose it for our daughters beach wedding and the house exceeded our expectations! We are hoping to have family vacation there every year from now on! We had 12 people in the house and it was very comfortable. The furnishings are very nice and the owners were terrific to work with!! The view is nothing short of AMAZING and HEAVENLY! We watched the dolphins play every day and there was so much privacy! Much better than over crowded beaches. Just a TREMENDOUS experience!

Owner's Response: I always get a little nervous about weddings. There are so many expectations for a perfect wedding. We are so glad that everything worked out for you and your wedding. We have just built a house directly behind Coco Beach. Several families have requested houses nearby for wedding parties and family reunions. Now we can offer more options. Be sure to check out "Sugar Shack". Also thank you for taking the time to post a review. Kent and Karen Gable

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Karen, for allowing our family to enjoy your perfect vacation home again. This was our second time to visit your Coco Beach house and we couldn't have enjoyed our week more. The views from Coco Beach House are simply amazing, and the house itself is perfect for our family. (love the fact that the kitchen has everything we need, love your huge pantry, love the super comfy bed in the master bedroom and appreciate the toys and beach chairs that you keep downstairs!) The beach is quiet and beautiful, and we were able to spend time outside soaking up the sun (and playing on those boogie boards) every day. The dolphins finally made their appearance on our last full day there; we watched three different groups swimming by! It was nice to have a chance to meet you this time, Karen! Again, thank you. We're already trying to plan our vacation for next year!

Owner's Response: I love meeting the families that share our home. Nothing is sweeter than seeing the smiles on the little faces as they are coming up off the beach. Thank you for the kind reviews and remembering us for future visits to the beach! Thanks, Kent and Karen Gable
