Sandhaven Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Sandhaven has been our Fort Morgan choice of stay for nearly a decade. We've grown to consider it our beach 'Home Away from Home', as it has watched our family grow with each passing Summer. It's easy to consider it home, too; the owners have created a space of comfort, and have all the accommodations you need for a multi-couple retreat, or family vacation. We love to cook and having a fully-stocked kitchen with everything from bakeware to cookware, to wine glasses and a blender (for smoothies of course :-), keeps costs low and allows us to eat health and have snacks and meals readily available. On days we don't want to cook, it's a short drive to the Sassy Bass (also a food market), Tacky Jacks, and the Beach Club. We especially love having the ice-maker to fill our mini-coolers; while you are merely a few stairs and a boardwalk from the sand and waves, it's nice to have this added amenity. Now that we have children, the hose at one end of the boardwalk; and the outside, secluded shower under the house make for easy clean-up at the end of the day. Having the TV and large front room upstairs for all the children is especially nice for winding them down. There have been years that I've needed to work remotely and having wifi and the lounging front room downstairs makes for a relaxing office. We also like to play card games, puzzles and read in this room, too. Aside from beach activities, Fort Morgan State Park is 3 miles down the road and fun to ride bikes to, and from there you can ride the ferry to Dauphin Island for a day of activities. We look forward to walking and exploring the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, and of course playing lots of golf. There are numerous courses just along Fort Morgan Road. We've been blessed to take numerous family and friends to this gem and everyone leaves swearing they will never do a crowded condo stay again! Having the convenience of your own boardwalk and reserved beach is unbeatable. We can't imagine staying anywhere else; SandHaven is our Heaven!!!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation spot for the whole family. Sandhaven is clean and spacious, and the designated private beach affords substantial elbow room so you're not sitting on top of your neighbors. Absolutely love the surf fishing. Yeah, a great time was had by all.

Pure Tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! Our stay was perfect! Saw dolphins on a daily basis, had to step out of the water briefly one day to let a small shark pass just a few feet off the beach....once in a lifetime experience for us! And during our stay we experienced free air shows from the Blue Angels as they were preparing for the upcoming air show in Pensacola! AMAZING!! One of their performances was just overhead and just before the pilot flew away for the day he tipped his wings at us! So exciting to see! It was truly amazing and an added bonus to our wonderful trip. The house is extremely accommodating and very spacious. Loved the updates that have been made, especially the beautiful new windows that provide spectacular views, especially from the second floor! This was our second stay in the beautiful townhouse and we certainly plan to make many more! We also enjoyed catching the ferry from Dauphin Island to Fort Morgan! We always hate to have to say goodbye to the beach and your beautiful home! Thank you for allowing the opportunity of a wonderful stay at a very tranquil and beautiful beach!

Beautiful home graciously shared-GREAT experience!

  • 5 of 5

Sandhaven is a beautiful home, lovingly maintained, and its location at the far end of Ft. Morgan is an added plus. We swam with the dolphins and stingrays, and the beach is very uncrowded. I slept in the sunroom, and woke every morning to the sound of the waves, and enjoyed coffee sitting on the porch, looking directly out onto the ocean! Thank you, Johnnie and Maryanne, for sharing your home!
