Beautiful View and Home

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is by far, the best house we have stayed in, in this area. This is the perfect location. On the beach, beautiful views, quick to get in the water.. House is beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The home is located close to food, shopping and quick stops if you need something in a hurry. This was our best vacation yet, down here in this area. We will absolutely be back next year if not sooner. We plan to bring our parents back and sibling for a family beach trip. Best.House.Ever. And the owner is fantastic to work with and quick to respond. Couldn't be happier with this rental!! Look no further... this is the house to rent! Oh.. and the bottom level has a grill and picnic tables and a hose/shower to wash the sand off. SO HANDY!!

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay. The house is everything it says it is and more. All we had to bring was out food the rest was there. Kids had a great time on the beach which is just steps away from the house. End of the street so not traffic to worry about. Excellent location. Would recommend to anyone. Will stay at this place again hopefully next year.

Beach House Rental -- Ship Watch North

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property from 12/22/2010 until 12/30/2010. The facitity and its location was great. The listing description was on the mark for its description of location, layout and amenities. The property was clean and very well maintained and the provision of amenities was excellent. We really enjoyed the beach although it was a bit too cool for swimming. The restaurants we visited in Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan -- King Neptune and Tacky Jack's -- had excellent seafood and the staffs were very friendly. Overall it was a super visit and I would highly recommend it to friends and relatives!

Fort Morgan - 6/5 - 12 (Jennings Family)

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week. We have vacationed in Ft. Morgan many times but I must say that this was one of our BEST trips. We stayed at Shipwatch North from 6/5 - 6/12. We were really nervous due to the oil spill situation but decided to go anyway. The house was absolutely FANTASTIC. The entire first level is a porch and was great for family dinners and late night drinks. We had 13 people off and on during our stay and everyone loved the house. The water was beautiful and the beaches were white. We went swimming every single day.

The beds were really comfortable. We've had bad experiences before at houses we had rented at Ft. Morgan in that the beds were horrible and no one slept much. Not the case with Shipwatch North.

The kitchen is well stocked and I found that I had brought many of the things that were already at the house for us to use.

Don't let the pictures fool you... this house is RIGHT ON the beach. Yes, there is another house in front of you but you have full unobstructed beach views all over the place. The beach is only a few steps away and actually there were "front row" houses in the same area that were farther away from the water edge than Shipwatch North. Everything was clean and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We will absolutely be coming back to Ft. Morgan next year and plan on staying again at Shipwatch North. If you have a large group, this house is TOPS.

Review of Shipwatch North

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Coming from the north, we were treated to a beautiful beach! Our stay was for a month; mid-Feb to mid-March. The weather was not great, but we couldn't change that! It was a cold year from California to southern Florida and up the eastern coast. So, I'd rather have been on the windy beach than shoveling the snow! There is history, restaurants (too numerous to mention, but "local" and "tourist"), waterparks, mini-golf, Ft. Morgan, the ferry to Dauphin Island (Sea Lab), the zoo is fabulous for little ones, LuLu's restaurant was very toddler friendly!, shopping, so much more; something for everyone!

On arrival, it was a little disappointing to have the house directly in front of us, BUT, you do get used to looking out the windows in either direction; and the views are amazing! We watched the "rigs," waves, and the dolphins playing just for us!

The fish market down the street has fabulous, fresh fish - each and every time we bought there. We also liked Fish Bait at the Wharf; the nachos are out of this world! The pictures of the storms in MikeE's are interesting, Pink Pony Pub makes a stiff drink! and Kiva Dunes is a treasure so close to the house.

The house itself was well-equipped. The "closed" porch was a blessing when we had a 2-yr old visiting! He could run back and forth without the worry of stairs. Again, we were not able to take advantage of the hammock, the windows open, picnics on the porch, etc. due to the weather. We did set up the folding table in the DR/KIT area and had a shrimp boil inside!

Everyone who visited us enjoyed the house, the views, the beach and the area as much as we did! There's a LOT of beach; not far from the house, the houses stop and it's just beach to Ft. Morgan. All-in-all a great vacation.
