The Swimming pool is directly across the street which makes is very convenient for the kids and parents. You can also walk across the street to the Mobile Bay side and we have a long pier that goes out in the bay that is great for fishing and beautiful sunsets.

My beach house is just one mile from the historic Fort Morgan State Park. The Dauphin Island Ferry is just one mile that runs every 45 minutes.

About Brad Granberry

I retired to the beach in the fall of 2012. I love the beach and wanted a place to spend time on the beach without the crowds of people.

Brad Granberry purchased this house in 2010

Why Brad Granberry chose Fort Morgan

Fort Morgan area is great because the beaches are not crowded. You feel like your own private beach. You can walk down to the Fort and there are no homes so it's very secluded.

What makes this house unique

I love my beach house because it feels like a home. It's very causual but very upscale so you have all the comforts. I enjoy just relaxing on the porches.

Loved the location. Loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Beach Life was phenomenal! Have not been to Gulf Shores in 13 years. Absolutely loved the location. Away from congestion and yet only a quick trip if we needed anytging. The house was stocked with paper products, beach chairs, beach wagon, crab traps, umbrella, fire wood, charcoal for grill and on. Loves using the waffle iron. So enjoyed the decks. Beautifully decorated. Steps from pool and short, easy walk to beach plus nice private pier for fishing on bay side. We will be back! Thank you Brad for making our trip so memorable!

Brad has the hospitality by the bucket full

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting from Brad for around 5 years. He genuinely welcomes you and ensures your stay is memorable. The best value in L.A. and you get the total beach experience.

Beautiful Home Inside and Out!

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to get together for the Thanksgiving holiday and I searched on VRBO for the perfect home. The photos for Beach Life were great but you never know until you move in how the stay will be. We were all so pleased! Brad thinks of everything. The kitchen was amazing. We actually brought a lot of stuff because we didn't expect coffee, spices/herbs, condiments, etc. to be provided. My daughter even commented that the paper products were name brand! We will be back. I would recommend this will not be disappointed.

Very nice house, close to the beach, a lot of extras.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean, nicely furnished, and Brad had a lot of extra items that aren't normally part of a rental. Our only complaint, and it is really not that bad, is the foutons in the living room are in need of new cushions or replace with sleeper sofas, as they are not comfortable to sit on. We will definitely rent Beach Life again!

"Beach Life" Beach House was Wonderful!!! Great time and fond memories - thank you Brad!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to spend a week at Beach Life and we are going to book it again for next year! Brad is such a nice person, easy to work with and if you need anything he takes care of it immediately. He even had a bottle of wine for us when we arrived! The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very spacious.

My daughters and their families join us so there are 11 of us. There's plenty of room in the house and we love hanging out on the front and back porches as well. Under the house is the "sand pit" where the little kids love to play. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also stored there and available for you to use. We all enjoyed the fire pit and cooked out on the grill several times. Having the pool right across the street was nice. The house is only a mile from the ferry which is very convenient.

We all look forward to our annual family beach trip and since we have found " Brad's Beach Life" it is even more enjoyable! We highly recommend it!! Wonderful times, great memories and we can't wait to come back! Thank you!!

We love the "BeachLife"!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house easily accommodated our extended family for a week with 7 adults and two children. From our middle schoolers, college students, special needs adult, and us grown-ups, we all had our own space and the activities provided at the house met all of our needs! In our opinion, the home is beautifully decorated and well cared for, plus the three porches were very inviting, as well as the swing and hammock below the home! We had some rousing corn hole tournaments and made use of the grill, beach chairs, umbrellas, crab traps, boogie boards, wagon, and other beach items. The reviews are correct that you need to check the refrigerator and pantry out before buying groceries. This was a bonus as well as finding laundry detergent/dryer sheets and dishwasher and hand soaps supplied. The house is well-lit and gorgeous at night; the best in the neighborhood! You will not be disappointed with this home or the owner! Brad took care of us and was not intrusive.
