Don Ward purchased this house in 1998
We built our Beach House, Windward, in 1998. Cindy and I started managing it in January 2008 when we listed it on VRBO and HomeAway. Our Beach House is located between the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay. You always have a great view of the water at Windward, the Gulf in the back and Mobile Bay in the front. The Fort Morgan area is very laid back and quiet which is perfect for families or couples wanting to getaway from the crowds yet you are only a short drive to the tourist hot spots. Our sugar white beaches are never crowded. The beaches at Fort Morgan are quite large, plenty of room to let the kids play or spread out to get that perfect tan. There are 3 undeveloped beach lots directly behind our house which is like having your own private beach. It's so laid back that we tell our guests to leave our beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys on the beach until its time to check-out, they are never disturbed.
There is always a view of the water from our Beach House, Windward. The Gulf of Mexico with its Sugar White Sand Beaches is behind us and Mobile Bay is in the front. The Beach is a 200 yard walk and the Bay is across the street from our driveway. You have a view of the water from every room in our Beach House. Windward is beautifully decorated, with Gorgeous Views. The Fort Morgan area has a very slow pace, a great place to relax and stay away from the crowds. We offer the following amenities: Plush Pillow top Mattresses as comfortable as you will find in any 4 or 5 star hotel, luxury Sheets, WIFI, 60 inch Smart HDTV with High Definition DirecTV High Definition Programming, a Fully Equipped Kitchen, and a Covered Porch or open Deck to take in the Beautiful Views or get that perfect tan. Just bring your food, clothes, and sun screen, Windward has the rest.
We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the quiet and privacy. Our lives are so hectic and busy with six children! We really needed a last minute weekend. We will be visiting this property again for sure. We are leaving a hidden treat for the next guests to try to start a little “Treat Tradition”! Thanks a ton!
We stayed at Winward from July 3 to July 10, 2010. It was even better than the listing described. This was such a peaceful place. It was quiet and private. I cannot emphasize enough how nice it was to have three private beach lots with plenty of room to spread out. We did not have to fight for a postage stamp sized square of beach or edge our way through crowds. The beach is an easy walk from the beach house. The house itself was clean, cheerful, and equipped with everything we needed. Everything was in good working order, and there were very clear instructions on how to use everything. We had plenty of room for our party of six adults and two children. We enjoyed grilling out on the patio, and the outdoor showers were so nice in helping keep the sand out of the house. I cannot say enough about how helpful and accomodating the owners were. Mr. Ward communicated with us weekly to keep us updated on the beach conditions with the oil spill and hurricanes, and we felt him to be honest in all dealings. He was quick to respond to all questions and even called to check on us when we arrived and sent us updates on activities around town during our visit. The books in the beach house were very helpful in helping us find restaurants and things to do. I woud recommend this property without any hesitation. Some of our favorite non-beach things were Waterville USA, DeSoto's restaurant, and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. We did not love Lulu's; for us the food was just not worth the price and the hour and a half wait.
Don was great to work with and the house had everything we needed or wanted. The wheelie cart was perfect for taking stuff to beach. Do NOT bring chairs or toys etc. There was plenty of all beach related items. The kitchen was fully stocked and there were plenty of towels in the bathrooms. The view of the bay from the covered front porch was peaceful. My sons went right across the street to put in their kayaks and had luck fishing. GO!
Quite and cozy. Very clean property. Short walk to the beach and bay. Everything you need to feel like you are home.
Highest marks to the Windward Beach House. We enjoyed our week's stay at this charming, comfortable and clean house. It has a very private feel to it with all the comforts of home. The beach is a short walk away and not crowded at all! The covered porch overlooking the bayside is a bonus! Ft. Morgan is only minutes away and minutes away from the ferry. The owner is very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this vacation home. We only wished we could have stayed a bit longer.
First time to stay in Fort Morgan. Loved the beach house. Beautifully decorated and clean. It had everthing we needed. Close to beach which was not crowded at all. Family oriented. Mr. Ward was very kind to check on us. I would recommend this place to stay!
Our stay at the Fort Morgan beach house was wonderful! The home was exactly as described, clean, and comfortable. We especially enjoyed all of the extra conveniences provided such as the Keurig coffee maker and the Directv. It was an easy walk to the beach (which was never crowded) and we happily made use of the beach chairs and toys provided. We really loved the location..away from the crowds and high-rises yet only a short drive to stores or restaurants. We will definitely be back!
