This cottage is very private, cozy, pet friendly and non smoking! Walk onto the front deck & see the beautiful white pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico about 200 yards from your front door. Ft. Morgan area is very 'protected' because the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is located (literally) right by the house. There are walking & biking trails within walking distance of the cottage. This area is beautiful & free from high rise hotels & other 'city' life that creates noise & light pollution. See the beautiful stars at night because it's so dark, also see the dolphins jumping in the morning because it's a common occurrence at your front door. This cottage has many return renters Come to Ft. Morgan & stay in our cozy little cottage, Pair O Dice! Email me for questions!

Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great 4 days of rest and relaxation. Literally a short stroll down the boardwalk to the beach. You can hear and see the waves from the large deck. The house itself is very comfortable with all that you need. The king sized bed was quite comfortable, plenty of cooking utensils and plates, etc... Nice bath towels. There is one bath, it is small, as was the style when this house was built, but it was not a problem. VERY quiet area with no traffic. We were so happy to be able to bring our dogs, they also enjoyed themselves with long walks on the beach and lots of sun time on the deck. I would recommend this place and would return.

All the peace and quiet, and beautiful Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pair-O-Dice from Sept 9 thru 14 and loved it! All the amenities of home, and a beautiful view of the Gulf from the spacious deck. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable too. Marry was a breeze to work with, and there were no worries, not even from Irma! Our two dogs, Buddy and Honey, loved their early morning walks on the beach and I loved the wonderful weather and sunshine. My husband Lamar had not been to the beach in about 20 years, and he loved it! Good food and great times. Thank you Marry!!

Wow! Location is perfect. Cottage was clean and the views were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Mary was so nice and readily available for questions. I truly appreciated the letter listing fun things to do that were nearby. The cottage was perfect for our family of three. Beds were so comfy. If it's your first time to the beach, you'll really appreciate the outdoor shower to rinse the sand off. The washer and dryer were definitely a plus. We saw dolphins from the deck almost daily. The Blue Angels practice runs were pretty awesome too. The beach is stunning and a shell seekers paradise. We are truly blessed to have came across this little gem after hours of researching for the perfect place. We met new people that we can happily call friends . We look forward to returning on future vacations. Thank you so much Ms. Mary!
