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!

Spectacular view! Lovely home! Huge, welcoming family, dining, kitchen area.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to spend a few days here. They've thought of everything from the strategic expanse of windows overlooking the beach/Gulf to kitchen tools available to cook with and even puzzles and games.

My father has Parkinson's and being directly on the beach afforded him an opportunity to be a part of everything we were doing as he sat on the large deck.

My brother recently had a heart transplant. Prior to the procedure, he feared he'd never again see the ocean/beach. He loved being able to wake up each morning, head into the family area, and see the ocean even before reaching for the coffee pot! :)

While we cooked most of our meals at the house, a five minute afternoon drive to rustic Sassy Bass was fun, the food good, and the coconut margarita to die for!

Thank you seems inadequate but I can't say it enough to the owners for creating such a beautiful home, opening it up to our family, and allowing us to make our own beautiful memories!!

Owner's Response: We were so happy to be able to offer you a place for all your family to enjoy the beach. Whether in the house or outside strolling on the beach, the entire family can connect. My mom loves to sit in the living room or outside on the deck to watch the little ones playing either in the sand or in the ocean. This is truly a great house for large gatherings. Thanks for a great review and remember us for future visits. Kent and Karen Gable

Wonderful Rental with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Coco Beach was, by far, the cleanest, most well stocked VRBO we have every stayed in. Plenty of room for our large group. Nice surprises we werent expecting like a separate ice maker, beach chairs, huge pantry, games, etc. The whole house from top to bottom was spotless, the beds were comfortable and lots of room to spread out whether in the great room or on the porch with sunrise and sunset views. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen and also enjoyed a meal out at The Sassy Bass. We were able to watch all our SEC teams play on the big screen TV. Our children rented bikes that were delivered and picked up by a local company. We took rides down Fort Morgan Rd (?) and through several of the side streets/neighborhoods. We did have a few questions beforehand for the owner and she replied promptly and politely. We would recommend this rental to anyone!

Owner's Response: I asked my housekeeper if she had read this review and she said not yet. She is the reason our house stays in such good shape. Whether the cleaning or something needs to be addressed, she is right there. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to answer questions to future visitors. I think I should get a free meal from time to time for advertising "Sassy Bass". My husband says that it is one of his favorites. Please remember us for future visits to the coast.

Hi Karen, I'm so sorry it took me so long to write this review. The house and location was perfect! My daughter had her wedding directly in front of the house with the reception under the house. Again perfect! My in-laws stayed in the Sugar Shack directly behind the Coco Beach House, which was very handy and that house is absolutely gorgeous too!. The wedding was perfect. It was my daughter's dream wedding! Karen was great to work with. I can't say enough positive and great things about the house, location and owner. We hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: I am so honored to receive such a sweet review. It really is a wonderful location for a wedding. Now we own 3 houses in a row. Coco beach is the perfect wedding house and sugar shack and sisters are perfect for overflow guest. All just either on or yards away from the beach.

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
