Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to Sunset! Spacious and sunny, this lovely 3 BR, 2BA Gulf-front home has been recently updated (kitchen, floors, main bathroom) for 2010. Located directly on the sugar-spun Gulf of Mexico beach in beautiful and less-crowded Fort Morgan, you'll enjoy all the comforts of home and amenities not always found in a vacation rental.

Absolutely breathtaking and unobstructed Gulf views are yours from the large, charming, and very private Master Bedroom, which includes a luxurious bed and sunken Jacuzzi tub. After a day of enjoying the many activities available to you in the region, you can experience stunning sunsets from your own private deck. On the main floor, which features brand-new tile throughout, you'll find two additional beautifully-decorated bedrooms, the recently-renovated main bathroom, laundry room with brand-new washer/dryer, and updated (including brand-new granite counter tops) kitchen/dining area. The cozy and well-appointed living area (with new convertible sofa) contains all the comforts of home, including high-speed Internet access and satellite TV. Another beach-front deck will become a favorite spot as you watch dolphins play in the Gulf all day. Plenty of windows throughout the house allow for relaxing Gulf breezes and plenty of sunlight to brighten your stay.

With the amenities the region has to offer, you’ll be as busy as you want to be, whether you enjoy fishing, swimming, or sight-seeing. Historic Fort Morgan is approximately 5 miles away, and you are close enough to enjoy all that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have to offer. Want to “laissez les bon temps roulez?” New Orleans and Bourbon Street are only a short three hour's drive via the Dauphin Island Ferry. The area is also ideal for both the serious or recreational golfer.

We are pet-friendly, and we welcome your furry family members to join you as you make vacation memories. Unlike other beaches, dogs are permitted on Fort Morgan Beach!

Please note that we do not rent to Spring Breakers or under 25 at any time of the year.

Thanks for some great memories!!

  • 5 of 5

I have never booked a vacation on line before and the transaction with Sunset went perfect. Response to my questions were very quick and helpful. I am very pleased with the whole experience. The agent was so helpful and nice.

My family had a great time. We wanted peaceful and ocean front and this house was perfect. There is nothing like sitting on your deck and looking at the ocean directly in front of you! I can still hear the ocean. There was plenty of room and everything we needed was there. I was surprised at the supply of pots and pans. The kitchen was great, refrigerator was large, stove and microwave, dishwasher were great. Wi Fi, Direct TV, washer, dryer, everything was great. And being pet friendly just completed the package. The drive to Gulf Shore was a short trip but really anything you needed was just within a mile or two. We made many trips to Sassy Bass (within a mile) for supplies and ate at Tacky Jacks just down the road. We had no problem with any neighbors, everyone is there to relax and soak up the sun. We really like the rocking chairs on the front deck. The beach was clean and the house was spotless when we arrived. There are tile floors all through the house so sweeping sand up was a breeze. There were ceiling fans in every room and two in living room and one in the kitchen which pleased me very much. I love fans, lol. The AC worked perfect and was needed in the August heat, lol. We also got to see the Blue Angels practice, that was awesome. If we every travel that way again I would stay at Sunset again. Thank you Sunset for some great memories!!

Perfect peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week stay at Sunset. We had 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 2, 7, 14, & 16) on this trip and there was plenty of room!

I would rate this rental as five stars! Location is perfect for families. This house was in an area of Fort Morgan that was not congested at all. There were a few house nearby. If you go towards Gulf Shores, the houses and condos get very condensed. And moving towards the actual Fort Morgan (at the end) the number of houses significantly increases which made that area of the beach much more crowded.

This house is literally on the beach with no obstructed views. It made it easy to keep an eye on the older children who could go to the beach on their own. The two decks made for nice cups of coffee in the morning (with dolphin watching some days!), and beautiful views of the many stars at night. We were also lucky to see the Blue Angels jets training.

We were able to set up a canopy and our chairs on the day we arrived and leave them safely there all week. I accidentally left my camera out in the open for several hours and it was still there when we went to clean up that evening.

Sassy bass restaurant near by had very good food. There is also a little store inside for some items. Dollar general was about 15 minutes away, Walmart about 25 minutes.

The house had all dishes that we needed to prepare our meals. The upstairs shower was very nice. The hand held shower on the way up to the deck was very convenient to rinse the sand off before going into the house. Wifi, TV, washer/ dryer all worked very well. Overall I have no complaints about this rental. I would say that it is not in brand new condition, but everything was maintained as well as possible. It was an extremely smooth process corresponding with MaryBeth and setting up rental. I highly recommend this rental for those looking for a stress free family get away!

Tips: bring canopy, there were some kids sand toys available at the house, watch for jellyfish!!, visit Fort Morgan, try out Sassy Bass, look for the roped off turtle nests

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house away from the tourist filled beaches and high rise condos. We had a blast being right on the beach and did not want to leave. This really was the perfect place for anyone looking to relax and unwind on the ocean. We have young children and the convenience of being right on the beach cannot be overstated. We have already started talking about when we should go back.

The perfect beach house in beautiful Fort Morgan

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Sunset recently and it was outstanding. The pictures were great, but the property actually far, far exceeded my expectations. The views are unbelievable and the double wrap-around balconies are so cool. The entire upstairs of the house is made up of the master suite, which has a jetted tub and an amazing shower with twin vertical heads.

The location is really ideal too. It's close enough to Gulf Shores proper for dining and activities, but once it's time to head back for the night, you are really in a nice, quiet place.

We will definitely be back.

What a great place to be relax!

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure what to expect with Sunset. All I know when we were looking for a place was that we wanted to be right on the beach and Sunset definitely fit that requirement. The house is in great condition and the only thing that was lacking was a cork screw, but that really was easily fixable and we left it behind for the next folks. Every thing about this place exceeded our expectations. I had small plans to do some excursions, but when the time was up all we had done was lounge around on the beach or the patio. The weather was perfect for our taste and the view of the stars was something we had a fabulous time sharing and talking about with our 4 year old son. We took our 11 year old dog with us as well and she very much loved laying on the patios, rolling around in the sand, and taking her early morning walks on the beach. She seemed to come back home refreshed like the rest of us.

This is definitely a place we would stay again when we return to Fort Morgan.

In regards to the ownership, very easy and pleasant to work with. This was our first time renting something like this and they made the reservation process so simple.

what a view!

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at Sunset for a week and I wish it could've been longer, the view from the top deck at any time of day is incredible, one of the higher decks around there, but especially at! The house was spotless when we arrived, and all the beds were very comfortable, even the sleeper sofas. Mary Beth and the owners are great to work with, would highly recommend this house for anyone but especially for families, lots of sand toys and beach accessories already on site, and a fantastic master upstairs.
