About Bonnie and Patrick Murphy

This property is owned by Patrick and Bonnie Murphy of Cincinnat Ohio.

We have 4 wonderful children and blind brown labrador that loves the beach as much as we do.

Bonnie and Patrick Murphy purchased this house in 2000

Why Bonnie and Patrick Murphy chose Fort Morgan

Patrick and I bought this house back in October of 2000 so we could come to BAMA and watch my baby sister play Division 1 Soccer for USA in Mobile. The first four years we limited our guests to family and close friends due to the amount of time we spent at the house and beach each year. As the kids have all gotten older our trips to our little piece of heaven on earth are not as often as we like so we decided to share our home with others so they too could make the same kind of lasting memories that we have been making with our family and friends for so many years!

What makes this house unique

At Bonnie Dune you will find a great level of detail has been taken to make sure your stay will require nothing more than bringing yourself and your bathing suits and towels to the beach! We want people to be able to come and relax and enjoy without wondering what they must bring to the house for the week. If you are afraid we don't have what you might be looking for just ask. We have taken the time to develop everlasting relationships with all the folks that care for Bonnie Dune and know our folks will go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is stress free!

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great Beach House! My husband and I stayed a month and enjoyed every moment of it. Very private setting and a great view of the beach. We spent a lot of time in the sun room, having meals or playing cards. The house is very clean, and the decor was very nice. We loved it so much we are booking it for next year.

Amazing first time experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have ask for a more perfect rental! The view was amazing! The house was more than we could have imagined. We were first time beach goers and everything turned out perfect. The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all. We highly suggest anyone that wants to stay in the Fort Morgan area to give Bonnie Dunn a try you won't be disappointed, I know my family and I weren't. We will definitely return some day. Thank you Patrick and Bonnie for allowing us to rent such a top notch house.

Great location, close to the beach, away from the crowds, We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Property had plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 children, the layout of the house is open and makes it easy to be in the kitchen and still visiting with everyone in the living room. The pool was perfect, the ice cream man came by everyday we will blame it on the kiddos.... 😊? We had coffee outside in the morning and listened to the waves crashing and nature all around us. It is very private. In the late afternoon we flew kites on the beach and fished. Loved the house, beach, location. We wanted to extend our stay. Thank you so much for sharing. The trash pick up twice.a week is perfect! Thank you both again.

Love the "new" Bonnie Dune!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at Bonnie Dune in 2015, but the new remodel has made things even better! The new covered porch is a wonderful addition, as well as the addition of a 3rd bathroom & the new washer/dryer area. With the remodel, it's essentially a new house & we loved the new layout & the fabulous kitchen. Pool is a great plus! The Murphy's are fantastic hosts, too! Bonnie provides great info on the house & makes herself available to answer any questions or concerns. We hope to return to Bonnie Dune again! It's simply a wonderful place for a vacation at the beach! Our three generation family highly recommends it!

Beautiful Remodel

  • 5 of 5

Once again we were extremely pleased with our stay. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beautiful changes to the home. The front porch was a nice addition. Great place to sit, relax or enjoy a card game with the family.

As always, the pool was wonderful and the beach wasn't too crowded which is one the main reasons we've chose this home for our family vacations. We look forward to future visits!

The house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the updates made to the house. The front porch was our favorite and a lifesaver on rainy days with two babies! As always the house was clean and well stocked. We had one small problem and it is was taken care of quickly. Bonnie cares about the people renting her home and it shows. The beach is beautiful and just a quick walk away. When you want a break from the beach the kids can swim in the pool while you relax on the porch. We love it here and can't wait to come back.
