About the property

Beach View, 3bdrm, 2 baths, steps from the beautiful beaches of Ft. Morgan, AL

Welcome to Crab Cakes. We are located in Ft. Morgan, AL. This area has miles of secluded beautiful white beaches.

Sit on the deck of this 3 bedroom/2 bath house and soak in the events of the day. Relax in front of the 55” TV with lots of cable channels or just sit on the deck in a rocking chair. We also provide wi-fi so you can stay up to date on whatever interests you. You will also enjoy preparing your meals in a fully equipped kitchen. Crab Cakes has an open living/dining area for those fun family times. No need to travel to the store for ice, Crab Cakes has an ice maker separate from the one in the freezer.

Laundry room inside the house with a full size washer and dryer so no need to bring a lot of clothes. 2 bedrooms have queen beds, 1 bedroom with a full size bed and a loft with a sofa that pulls out into a full bed. All linens are included. You would need to bring your own beach towels. Beach buggy, beach chairs, umbrellas, deck chairs and a charcoal grill are in the storage room. There is covered parking under the house.

Often you can step outside and see the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron practicing over the Gulf of Mexico just steps from the house.

While you could easily get caught up in the beauty of the beach, you are close to many area attractions. OWA 21 ride amusement park in Foley, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, golfing at the Kiva/Peninsula or Craft Farms golf courses are only a few miles away. Jump on the ferry and ride across to Dauphin Island or take a tour of Ft. Morgan. Other activities include shopping at the nearby Tanger Outlet Mall, Gulf Shores Zoo, miniature golf, Waterville USA and go cart riding.

There are several places to eat, Tacky Jack's, The Sassy Bass, Behind the Pines, and Ft. Morgan Pizza just to name a few, so you do not have to go back into town if you don't want to. You can charter a fishing trip at Tacky Jack's Marina, less than a mile from the house. In case you forgot an item, you are just down the road from several convenient stores.

No riding round and round trying to find a place to park or fighting the crowds to find an area for your beach chair. No waiting on a condo elevator! If you are looking for that home away from home that is comfortable and cozy, away from all the traffic and noise, this house is perfect for you.

If you are snowbirds and have been thinking about wintering in the south, contact us for details on long term reservations of one month or longer. Call or e-mail for more details.* 334-707-5739 or

We had a wonderful time at Crab Cakes with family and friends, took a tour of FortMorgan and road the Farry over to Dolphin Island. Took lots of pictures and will never forget the time spent there.

Crab Cakes is a wonderful place to spend your vacation!! Will definitely rent again !!

  • 5 of 5

Where do you start ? Cleanest beach house or condo I've ever stayed in !! Just a few steps and you are in the sand. Comfortable beds, quite neighborhood, beautiful place to come and relax and listen to the waves roll in. Overall review of the property , if I could've gave it 6 stars I would've. Oh and by the way , there is a beach cart there you load all of your stuff on and push out to the beach, it's no harder than pushing a grocery cart ! If you have small kids just that one amenity would be worth staying !!!!

Beautiful Beach home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to Fort Morgan on vacation. Our goal was to stay in a place close to the beach but with plenty of space. Crab Cakes was perfect! It's a beautiful home, just steps from the beach. We had plenty of room and it was private. The beach cart was amazing! We were able to take everything in one trip, coolers, chairs - everything. Glenelle was fantastic! very quick to respond with any questions we had while we were there. We will definitely be back! We all loved it!

We had a great time! Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the character of the home and it's roominess, it simply welcomed togetherness and had a great "family" feel. We enjoyed rocking on the deck and walking just a short distance to the ocean's edge. We had everything we needed in the house. The owners were very friendly and made everything go smoothly. We highly recommend this home for families looking to create special memories.

Even better than expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The pictures don't do it justice! The house was very clean with nice large appliances. We especially appreciated the extra countertop ice maker and beach cart! The rooms were bigger than expected. We only had 4 in our group, but there is plenty of room for a large family. We were also closer to the beach than expected. We were walking on sand within 40 yards. The street was very quiet with very little traffic. The highway into town never had heavy traffic either. Tacky Jacks is just down the street if you don't want to drive to town. There were people on the beach, but plenty of room between groups to fish, body surf, or play games. The owners checked in just after our arrival to make sure everything was was expected. Great place. Great time. Great service. Will book again if returning to Ft. Morgan/Gulf Shores.

Be sure to check out The Hangout and LuLu's while you're here!
