Excellent vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to the Fort Morgan area and the Castaway beach house. When we arrived the house was clean and smelled very nice. The walk to the beach is not bad at all, we walked there multiple times a day with a six-year-old and three-year-old. All of the neighbors on the street were very friendly. The beach itself is very nice. It is not a highly trafficked beach at all. We enjoyed seeing the dolphins swim by, and just relaxing in the very nice sand of the beach. We made our way into Gulf Shores a few times for eating out, that drive is not too bad, about 20 minutes. I would recommend renting this Beachhouse, it served our needs very well. One thing to watch out for is the railing on the deck, it is not safe for young children. A few of the slats are loose or missing and a child could fall through. The railing is bolted to the deck, but the wood is old and it wouldn't take much force to break it off. We were comfortable with our three-year-old being out there on the deck, but only if we were close to him. But like I said, I would recommend this house. Just be aware of the railing.

Nice open space with short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

It's a roomy house with plenty of space, well stocked with essentials. Home away from home. Less than 2 minutes from tacky jacks and about 5 to the nearest grocery store. Would do again for sure.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Castaway for a long weekend getaway. My daughters small dog was even able to make the trip with us. The house was clean, neat, and well stocked, it worked out really well for us. The area was quiet, with very little traffic. The beach is just a short walk away, great location.

We LOVED Fort Morgan!

  • 5 of 5

Great location- Fort Morgan is a laid-back, friendly community away from the craziness of Gulf Shores but accessible from town. Everyone on the block was so nice and folks on the beach enjoyed stopping to chat too. The weather ranged from cool and windy to sunny and warm to stormy but we managed beach walks every day and our pup loved getting in the Ocean when the waves weren't too daunting. This property would be great for a family of 3 or maybe 4 but would be pretty tight for 2 couples. The second bedroom is pretty small. It was a great cozy getaway and just right for us as a couple with a dog and no children. The house was stocked with everything we needed to cook and feel at home, even tupperware. Be sure to load up on most of your groceries in town before you arrive since the location is pretty far out away from town. The Sassy Bass nearby has a general store attached to it which actually had everything else that we needed to pick up. If you bring your pet be sure you bring a dog bed and you may want to bring some additional soft rugs for them to lay on since as a dog-friendly property there are no carpets or good places for the dog to lay. We brought our bocce ball and ladder golf set and set up shop on the beach in the afternoons. The beach cart was so helpful. We grilled several times and there was some charcoal and lighter fluid at the house but be sure to bring some of your own too. When we arrived there was an issue with the house and the owners were very responsive in making sure that it was taken care of immediately.
