Fine Fish House - Gulf Front Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 BR with loft, 1 bath Beach Front Cottage, sleeps 9 and is pet friendly

Fine Fish House - this BEACH FRONT cottage is located about 12 miles from Gulf Shores and next door to the Bon Secour National Wildlife refuge. One of the most private homes you can find in this area. The cottage has a master bedroom with a Queen size bed and a second bedroom with two full size beds. There is also a loft that has one twin bed and a fold-out sofa sleeper that sleeps two people.

Close to historic Fort Morgan so you can take the ferry to Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines; great fishing in the Gulf of Mexico with a full service marina just a few miles away.

Amenities: Welcome - just bring your bathing suit and toothbrush! All sheets, towels, pillows are provided and the kitchen is ready for cooking. There is a full sized washer and dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave and electric stove. The large deck on the front of the cottage is perfect for enjoying the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets! We also have a wireless internet, cable television with approximately 45 channels (and growing) and a stereo with cassette and CD capabilities. Close to the Tanger Centre (outlet shopping), numerous approved golf courses, and transportation to the casinos of Mississippi and Louisiana.

Just past Mile Marker 10, Fort Morgan Road (U.S. Highway 180 West), (Gulf Shores), Alabama, approximately twelve miles outside of Gulf Shores, Alabama.

We are strategically located along the flight path for practice runs made by the Blue Angels of the Pensacola Naval Air Station and other aircraft. Historic Fort Morgan is only ten miles due west along the scenic peninsula highway. The trip to Fort Morgan is a must to be able to walk its haunting corridors, walls, and perimeter where Admiral Farragut proclaimed: 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.' The museum and its artifacts are a chilling reminder of our heritage and history along the Gulf Coast.

Gulf Shores is located approximately twelve miles due east on a scenic ride through the miles long brackish water lagoon behind the Gulf Coast as it becomes the 'Diamond Coast,' including the beaches of Gulf Shores, Romar, Orange Beach, Ono Island and on into the Panhandle of Florida.

You can enjoy the unparalleled serenity of being on the beach and yet be within minutes of the substantial amenities that have come to pass in the Gulf Shores and the Panhandle. Golf courses abound, water sports thrive, fishing is world class (with charter boats readily available from local captains), and amusement and theme parks of a substantial nature are all available.

2 BR/1 bath, pets friendly.

Why Mary chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This cottage is located on a private road with a wide expanse of beach. No overcrowded beaches. This year there were over 90 sea turtle nests along the Fort Morgan beaches. Some nests hatched during the day which was a wonderful surprise for our guests.

Once again, we had a GREAT time at Fine Fish House! Our favorite place on the beach. If you're looking for a quiet, clean, fully stocked, light and airy beach cottage...this is it! We just LOVE this place! But please...don't every one rush down here! We want it to be available when we want to come down! Thank you, Mary! We'll see you again soon!

The description is accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities of Fine Fish House.

The Property is always very clean and well maintained.

The manager always provides excellent customer service, is easy to work with and is always responsive. She is easy to contact and willing to do whatever is necessary to make sure we have a relaxing, fun vacation.

We would recommend Fine Fish House.

We love the quiet beach.

We have completely enjoyed every stay at Fine Fish House in the Spring and Fall.

It is perfect for our family.

The house is very comfortable, always clean and in good condition.

We have been coming down since 2001 and have never had a problem

Great location, nice place, terrible furniture

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to thend fish house for years. Mary Waters does a great job. We love the location and house. The only complaint that we have year after year is the furniture. It is the same furniture other than one piece that was there 6 or 7 years ago. It is so broken down and uncomfortable that we will not go back until it is replaced. We brought this to Mary's attention the last time we stayed. She said that she would relay concern to the owner. I question it just rents so well that the owner is not willing to put money back into it. We will be renting a different house next year. We love the area.

Perfect Stay at the Fine Fish House, Again.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the Fine Fish House. We loved the new carpet, it was so soft. We spent most of our time on the beach and enjoyed meals in the house. Our family enjoyed fishing and finding shells. Thank you, Mary, for always making it so easy for us to come visit our home away from home. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Fine Fish House just as FINE as ever!!

  • 5 of 5

I love being at Fine Fish House! Just finished a family birthday celebration there and had a great time. I try to go back every time I can. I love the laid back, throw back vibe of the neighborhood. Kind of makes me sad that this cottage has "caught on" and is rented so steadily. It's just such a great place and holds such special memories. And Mary is the best!!

This cottage is located in lower Alabama on the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. It's perfect for just relaxing by the water or within driving distance of many sighseeing opportunities. There is a bike trail on Ft. Morgan Road and this cottage is just minutes from historic Fort Morgan,which hosts candlelight tours during the summer. It is within driving distance of the Pensacola Navy Air Station where you can visit the flight museum. Or take a day trip and visit Mobile or Biloxi. Mobile has the USS Alabama for touring, Mardi Gras, the Exploreum Museum, which boasts a hands on section for children and an IMAX theater, a historic homes tour in late March and of course Bellingrath Gardens & Home which is open year round and has a special Christmas light show during the holidays. There are many festivals during the year in the surrounding area and Biloxi is not far with entertaining shows or try your luck at the casinos. If you like shopping the Tanger Outlet and other shopping centers are located in Foley as well as plenty of locally owned specialty shops.

Other Activities: National Wildlife Refuge located immediately adjacent to property! nice bike trails and walking trails on Ft. Morgan Road.
