Why Southern Vacation Rentals chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Ft. Morgan is truly a unique beach destination with its colorful palette of eclectic beach homes positioned near the water. Some have described it as the 'last beach frontier' with its lack of commercialism, yet close proximity to shops, golf courses and restaurants. Its relaxed ambiance, lazy streets, and family friendly environment are reminiscent of simpler times. It is not unusual to see locals as well as visitors enjoying leisurely bike rides while watching wildlife or beach activities. Ft. Morgan is a charming,friendly community with a small town feel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful week we had at your beach house in Ft. Morgan. I just can’t say enough how special I think your house is. I loved the view from the kitchen as I cooked, and sitting out on the porch hearing the surf was so special. The walk over to the beach is simple! …and pleasant! Napping on the swing below is a treat too. We loved the black out drapes in the master bedroom! OHHH I want to go back!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, house had everything we needed. My only complaint is we had small children with us and there were rusty nails they found by outside showers, also as children will do they also found a full medicine vial in living room. Small things that can be easily fixed. The children were only 15 months old. The house was otherwise clean, kept up with and I would rent again. Nice place for a 2nd tier home.

Excellent beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

Mim's Whim was a perfect house and location for our family beach trip. We loved that we were only steps from the beach! The home was spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. We appreciated how clean the house was and that it was not cluttered with unnecessary decorations/furniture. When we encountered an issue with the wifi, Mrs. Witney worked tirelessly to find the solution and we were up and running in no time. She is extremely prompt with correspondence and strives for her renters have a great stay. We've already booked our vacation at Mim's Whim next year!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mim's Whim. The house was just as pictured and had everything we needed. Miriam was more than attentive before and during our stay. The house is perfectly located close to the beach. We loved having the opportunity to make family memories at Mim's Whim. I would highly recommend staying at Mim's Whim.

Owner's Response: We update our online pics twice a year to ensure that our guests have an accurate depiction of what Mim's Whim actually looks like-- although most of our guests tell us that they are pleasantly surprised to find that our home is larger than it appears to be in our pictures. The house itself is a comfortable layout with its open kitchen which lends itself to wonderful, warm family/friends gatherings. We try to make every effort to ensure that our guests' needs are met and it is very rewarding to us to hear back from our guests that they've had a wonderful vacation with lots of fun memories!

Great Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Mims Whim is a great home! The house is beautiful, the beach was beautiful while relaxing on the front porch and everything you need was provided within the home

The owner, Ms. Whitney, provided thorough updates and took the time to reassure us that everything was taken care of prior our arrival and followed up with us after as well

This is a wonderful home for a beach vacation and look forward in staying here again

Thanks for everything!
