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.

Because of unfinished remodeling work, we stayed at an alternative location just a block or so away. It was all anyone could expect from a beach rental: clean, well equipped, comfortable furnishings, nicely decorated, great views, plenty of room. The owners have made every effort to provide a 5 star rental. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Joe, I am so pleased that you still had a good experience and were happy with Sand's of LTAN since it was not your original choice. It is always my goal and the team that works with me to care for the house to make sure you feel like you have everything you need and hopefully then some. We would love to have you all visit us again anytime. Pictures should be out soon on Bonnie Dune. Have a day! Bonnie

Absolutely Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

From reading other comments on these properties and the owners, I thought oh sure.

Let me tell you, this was the nicest trip ever. There was a problem I won't go into but the owners went above and beyond to straighten it out.

The house and view were fantastic.

The area was quiet and everybody we talked to all said the same thing, they love it there.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my families favorite beach trips. So private and tucked away yet just a short trip into town. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kids had the best time on the very private beach and of course the pool which is a wonderful feature to this property. Anytime we travel, safety is the #1 priority. Even with the balcony it was well designed and even has a gate to close off the stairs. I loved how the owners were so willing to be reached for any reason at all. They really go the extra mile to make sure you are going to enjoy your vacation. They even give you the pool guys number in case something were to come up. We felt well taken care of and had an amazing vacation. I would love to go back to this house.

More amazing every year!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a lovely vacation at Bonnie Dunes! The weather was beautiful, and your lovely home provided us with everything we needed. The new patio area under the house was perfect for the mornings to enjoy coffee, and it looks so nice having the area under the shrubs cleaned out. However, I'm afraid that is why we didn't see any bunnies this year...ha We did have a squirrel join us for coffee one morning. We were really hoping to meet you, Bonnie, but maybe next year. Thank you for sharing your home with us again, we love it!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie Dune was like our home away from home. It was very well equipped for all of our needs. Great open concept and good views of the ocean. Nice short walk to the beautiful, uncrowded beach. The private pool was fantastic and a huge hit with the kids. We hope to make it back soon.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We are so very thankful to have stayed at Bonnie Dune for a week. Bonnie made sure everything was just as we expected and even checked in a week before arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and gave great pointers for the area. The walk to the beach, the ability to use their beach chairs and toys, the clean home, and the pool all made our week magical! We would definitely return to this home the next time we vacation at Gulf Shores as well as recommend it to family and friends. Bonnie, than you so much for the love and care you gave to us, we loved your home and had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: Sharron it was absolutely my pleasure to make sure you were well taken care of while you stayed at Bonnie Dune. We just love this beach house and what is has to offer and all the memories my family has made there and it sounds like you hopefully did that same last week. I am glad to hear that you were able to make use of the items we do provide for the guests and thank so much for mentioning the cleanliness of the home. I know that is a big concern for lots of guests. I have a wonderful Alabama crew that takes care of my homes and they truly want everyone to be happy when they arrive. I will be happy to have you all back anytime that you can find time to visit the Gulf! Enjoy the rest of the summer!
