This is no condominium! This secluded cottage is located approximately 150 yards from the western edge of the Bon Secour National Wildlife refuge. Situated just a few miles from historic Fort Morgan where you can spend the day immersed in history near the bay where Admiral Farragut declared 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!'

If golf is your game there are many approved golf courses in the area.

It you like to shop there are numerous local shops in Gulf Shores or travel to Foley and visit the Tanger Outlet Mall. You can also find transportation to the casinos of Mississippi and Louisiana.

The cottage has been updated with new living room furniture and new carpet in the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a sleeper sofa that sleeps two. The second bedroom has a double bed that sleeps two and the living room has a queen sleeper sofa with an upgraded mattress that sleeps two.

Amenities: All linens, towels and pillows are provided. The kitchen is completely stocked with pot/pans, baking pans, silverware, utensils, coffee maker and microwave. There is a full size washer and dryer in the storage closet downstairs. The deck is the width of the house and is perfect for enjoying the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets!

The cottage was exactly what we wanted. Perfect for three sisters. The beach and the view was great, quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

Fun, laid back location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Great little beach cottage! The place is dog friendly which was perfect beacuse I take my dog just about everywhere. He loved running on the beach and I enjoyed watching him do just that. The stores are close and the only time we left the beach was to go grocery shopping. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful if you happen to need anything. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back. Thank you guys so much!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! It's nothing fancy, but it was clean, quiet, AND dog friendly. On top of that there was a huge front porch and a grill. The view of the water is spectacular, and your dog friends are welcome on the beach, which our canine pals loved!! We had so much fun there, the only outings we made were to get groceries and beer! I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to have a friends weekend with their dogs, and I can't wait to visit again!

An oldie but a goodie.

  • 5 of 5

No cookie cutter condo here. This is gulf front vacationing as it used to be, before everything went large and corporate. Location is perfect - secluded beachfront yet only a few minutes from town and some really good seafood restaurants. Furnishings a bit aged but all clean and comfortable. House is well stocked with anything you could possibly need and everything worked. Great deck - the dog loved lying out in the wind and bird watching. Great customer service from the manager - very easy to work with. Do heed the note about the property not being suitable for the old or infirm as carrying the luggage thru the sand from the car and up the stairs is somewhat strenuous even for those of us who don't want to admit we are getting into the first of those categories. Would definitely recommend this property for a great beach vacation at an honest price.

Flea ridden and full of cat urine odor

  • 1 of 5

The cottage is in an excellent location and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. But it has issues that no clean person would want. The two bedrooms have carpet. The front bedroom has a very strong odor of cat urine. We took our white toy poodle and we bathed and groomed him before we left Huntsville. He scratched fleas from the time we arrived until I got him back to Huntsville. I picked 15 fleas off of him from tiny to large and had to bath him twice to get them all off. The front bedroom is full of fleas. The carpet needs removing and hard surface flooring needs to be laid then the cottage needs to be flea bombed a few times. Overpriced and way under cleaned. Choose another.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about your issues with the cottage. Just wanted to let you know this was the first I had heard of either. It is a pet friendly cottage but I do have it sprayed. We are updating it with new furniture and carpet by March 1.

Notes:
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! Mary Watters
