Welcome to our family retreat! We endure agonizing car rides with children for the profound serenity and fresh air at the end of the island. Share in the magic of our house that many of our previous guests have written about in our guest book. The sound of waves will lull you to sleep at night. The sun will rejuvenate you during the day. Our home is bright and roomy with a perfect angle for maximum views of the beach and ocean.
We are tucked away near the end of the Fort Morgan peninsula, away from the endless crowds. We have an enormous duplex home with a drive under carport, elevator and four floors. You will notice granite countertops, pine floors and large walk-in showers in our home. Enjoy a spectacular view of the ocean and still have the beautiful grassy dunes. Mobile Bay can be seen from the front side of the house. Across the street you'll find Tacky Jacks for some local seafood & pub. Gulf Shores Yacht Club & Marina is next door where you will find many fishing charters. Be sure & watch the YouTube clip with the tour of the house.
This house is an exceptional value and perfect for multi-family vacations. There was plenty of room for the 12 of us. It is beautifully decorated and maintained and so comfortable! It was nice to be able to leave our tent, chairs, etc.. at the beach for the whole week and not have to worry about it. The owner was extremely nice and easy to work with. FYI - big grocery stores and any activities are about 30 minutes away but that also makes it nice to be in a remote area with non crowded beaches. A perfect and relaxing week!
Very well maintained, comfortable beds, lots of room. Elevator very handy in hauling luggage, food, etc. to the upper 3 floors. Large refrigerator and kitchen has plenty of dishes, glasses and utensils. Short walk to the beach and pool. There were 14 of us for a week and we had a great time.
My family of 4 and my sister's family of 3 along with my mother who has not seen the ocean in 40 years, enjoyed our stay very much. We spent a lot of time at the beach and the pool, very relaxing! Paul was very responsive and a joy to work with! Thank you so much. The house is so beautiful the pictures do not do it justice!! We cannot wait to book again in the future!!
My family celebrated birthdays, Fathers Day and Graduations in Gulf Shores last week and we were fortunate enough to stay here. It..was..awesome! The house is beautiful, convenient to everything and we were sad to leave. It slept 14 comfortably and we had enough room that we didn't feel like we were in each others space. We also had my elderly Aunt with us and the elevator worked out wonderfully, especially since her bedroom was on the top floor.
We would definitely recommend this house for large groups. My suggestion would be to buy enough food for you entire stay and forget going anywhere. You are going to want to plant your chair in the sun and never leave.
Don't forget to take the Dauphin Island Ferry to Fort Morgan.
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience on Shell Lane. We had a large group of adults and teenage girls with plenty of room in the house to accommodate us all. The house is beautiful and the view is amazing! We cooked several meals in and had everything necessary to do so. The beach and pool are both in comfortable walking distance. There are a few restaurants and stores in close proximity or larger stores (i.e. WalMart) in short driving distance. This is an ideal setting for anyone to vacation.
Great House. Perfect setting with great views and only a short walk to the beach. Unfortunately the main pool was closed for a planned renovation and we did not know about the alternate pool until mid-way through our stay. Please note if you have small children a typical baby gate will not spand the distance to cover the flight of stairs, which kept us on our toes for the week. While the elevator was broken when we arrived the owner communicated it early and had it fixed. Overall we were happy with the hour and would return in the future.
Other Activities: crabbing, dolphin watching, kayaking & paddle boarding
