Fort Morgan Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 BR/ 2 BA - Sleeps 8

Get away from the hustle and bustle of crowded beach condos and relax! Located 14 miles west of Gulf Shores, nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is The Rookery. A small community of pastel colored tin roofed beach cottages located near the beach. The community features two pools, including a fantastic Large Zero Entry Heated Pool, Jacuzzi, Tennis Court, BBQ pits, and picnic tables in the communal area just steps away from your door.

If you love history, a 4 mile drive west leads you to historic Fort Morgan. There you can catch the Mobile Bay Ferry to Dauphin Island where you can visit the Sea Lab and Fort Gaines. From Dauphin Island, you're just a short drive to Mobile with it's historic USS Battleship, Aviation Museum and boundless restaurants and theatres. Heading 14 miles east on quiet Fort Morgan Road will take you into the heart of Gulf Shores for shopping, amusement parks, movie theaters, nightlife, restaurants, mini golf, and more.

And don’t forget the beach! White sand beaches and blue green water stretch as far and you can see in either direction. Fort Morgan’s low population density means that even in the middle of the summer season, beaches are not crowded. In spring, winter, and fall, you can spend the whole day on the beach and never see another soul! Watch the dolphins as they playfully swim and jump through the waves, or watch the sunset as it disappears beyond the horizon. The views are exquisite without being blocked by high rise buildings.

Duke's Dunes is a roomy cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Master has a King sized bed, the second has a Queen, and the Third has twin bunk beds, as well as a Queen sleeper sofa. It provides a cozy cottage for 2 with plenty of space for 8! It's a perfect place for a family vacation or a quiet get-a-way. The unit is fully equipped, including TVs in the 1st and second bedrooms, as well as a large, HD flat screen in the great room. The cottage also has a screened-in porch for relaxing.

Whatever your life style, from nature enthusiast to history buff, from shopper to golfer or sailor, you will have endless choices of activities or leisure when you stay at Duke's Dunes. Come to unwind, relax, and enjoy all the wonders of the Gulf and surrounding areas!

Decent for the price!

  • 3 of 5

We liked Fort Morgan a lot. We felt a little deceived because the pictures make it look like a detached single home. It is more of a duplex. Cleaning equipment was broken and several light fixtures were missing bulbs. Overall appearance of condo was ok. Would definitely stay at the rookery again but would not chose the same unit.

Great pool, house was awesome! Hope to do it again next year!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place and the seclusion of it. Pool is great and a 2 minute drive to the beach or less than 10 minute walk. Worth it to not be in the swarms of tourists. Bring garbage bags, dishwasher tabs, laundry detergent and paper towels. Would definitely go back!

Family Friendly & away from the Hustle & Bustle.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. We utilized the pool more than we utilized the beach so the short couple minute drive to the beach was not truly an inconvenience but could be for a family who is wanting a short walk to the beach as it takes about 15 mins to walk there. Upon arrival, the home was pretty clean. The electronic lock did not work the whole time we were there. Our only complaints are that there were only two rolls of toilet paper between both bathrooms (so we recommend bringing extra toilet paper) & the bed linens did not appear to be very clean. They had what we believe are makeup stains & other various stains but the beds were very comfortable. Also, we pulled out the silverware drawer to find a HUGE cockroach which tempted us to rewash all of the silverware. These cockroaches were also all over the screened in porch & my two year old was terrified of them. Everyone in the area was very friendly. We liked being away from the hustle & bustle especially with having two small children but it was nice to go into Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area for dinner & activities. It was about a 20 minute drive. The area is very serene & beautiful. We do plan on coming back & would recommend.

Very clean property, quiet, great pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! It was our first trip to Gulf Shores, but will not be our last. It does take 20 miles to get into Gulf Shores, but our kids did not mind the drive. It was a little further to the beach than we thought but the drive was quick and we parked on Cortez. Beach was white sand and clean, water was very clear and fun body surfing. Lots of fun!!

Clean comfortable house for good price

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. Communication with owner was excellent. Property had a great pool. The only draw back was the distance to the beach. The beach is with in walking distance but not if you are packing children, coolers, chairs, and umbrellas. So we did make the short drive which was an inconvenient to load and unload the car everyday. That being said this property is great place to stay if you don't mind the hike to the beach.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay there. Only thing that could make it better would be wifi. Plenty of room for our 6 adults, 2 babies. We've stayed at rookery before, we love it.
