Welcome to 'Southern Attitude'. It is located at 6195 Sawgrass Drive, Gulf Shores, 36542. There are no hidden fees for tax and linen service; the rental fee includes everything! Southern Attitude (with its picturesque gulf views) is a very easy stroll to the white sandy beaches and beautiful waters Gulf Shores is famous for, but distant enough from the busy beaches of the downtown area to enable you to enjoy seclusion and peace. This house was built to be a restful beachfront retreat; it has been loved and enjoyed by all who have vacationed here and we know after your stay, you will agree!
Our house is located in beautiful, tranquil Fort Morgan, 6 miles from the actual historic Fort Morgan and minutes from downtown Gulf Shores. We are 20 minutes west of downtown Gulf Shores, convenient to all restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, movie theaters, zoo, amusement areas and water park. For golfers in the group, it is minutes away from the world famous Kiva Dunes Golf Club, a winner of numerous Golf Digest awards, as well as several golf courses conveniently located nearby. For days you would enjoy pampering, The Spa at The Beach Club (just minutes away) offers the best in services for mind and body.
Southern Attitude is richly decorated and furnished to meet your needs for a comfortable, relaxing, fun beach vacation. This beautiful 2 story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath house boasts two decks in the front of the house; French doors lead from the master (King) and 2nd bedroom (King) that offer spectacular views of the Gulf. This screened-in 2nd story front balcony is furnished with comfortable chaise lounges, Adirondack and rocking chairs, perfect for relaxing while watching and listening to the waves hitting the shore during the day or viewing the incredible star-lit sky at night. The main floor (King) bedroom includes a full bath, with easy access to the kitchen, dining and living rooms.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for an easy vacation, including dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerator with ice maker, all cookware, flatware, utensils, dining sets, small appliances and full pantry space. If grilling outside is your pleasure, there is a charcoal grill available to you as well.
The dining area has a table large enough to seat 8 comfortably, with seating for 4 at the breakfast bar. The house is equipped with free Wi-Fi, as well as a flat screen TV, DVD/CD player in the living area. These rooms offer a beautiful gulf view and walk-out front porch, furnished with southern style rocking chairs.
The back porch is screened in, furnished with table and chairs. On the beach/car-port level, you will find an enclosed outdoor shower with a changing area. There is a comfortable porch swing for spending time relaxing under the house, listening to the waves; a perfect place for children to play on rainy days! For making your stay easy and more enjoyable, the storage area on this level has a wonderful selection of sand toys, umbrellas and chairs, coolers, easy pop-up canopy, as well as two carts to transport everything you need to the beach. In addition, there are two community pools and tennis courts within walking distance, just minutes away. The only thing missing is you!
Our beaches and scenery are magnificent, the golf is spectacular and the restaurants are outstanding. There is truly an activity for every member of the family. Southern Attitude isn't just the name of our house, it truly reflects the good nature, beauty and hospitality that IS the South!

About Melanie and Jerry Johnson
We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1979 and have never enjoyed a more beautiful beach or encountered more genuinely nice people!
Melanie and Jerry Johnson purchased this House in 2014
Why Melanie and Jerry Johnson chose Morgantown
Beautiful beach front location in a private community that offers two pools and tennis court (all walking distance from the house) as amenities as well as gulf views and access, all within steps of the most beautiful white sandy beach. Our home offers a less crowded beach than Gulf Shores, but is close enough to travel to town (20 minute drive) for attractions, souvenir shopping, activities. In the Fall, the Blue Angels can be seen practicing....free air shows!
What makes this House unique
Southern Attitude has all you need for a fun, relaxing, worry-free vacation! We have all the beach and house essentials needed to allow you to simply come, change into your bathing suit and play! White sandy beaches, piercing blue skies, peace, serenity, fun and sun! Come see for yourself!

Perfect family vacation
Very well stocked and comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood with beautiful pool and tennis courts. The house was a good size, lots of toys, kitchen equipment, everything you need for a great family vacation. The owners were responsive and kind as well. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for your lovey review! We truly appreciate wonderful guests and would love to host you again! We strive to make Southern Attitude the most comfortable, clean, well supplied house so all you need to bring is yourself. Wishing you a beautiful day!
Pristine, cozy property with great beach views and kind owners, plus amenities for small children
We have stayed at a few properties in Morgantown and Kiva Dunes in recent years, and this was our favorite for both its location and amenities: lovely views of the beach beyond one row of charming homes; comfortable furnishings for our family of seven; close enough proximity to the beach, pool and tennis courts that our young teens could go on their own; beach gear (toys, chairs, umbrellas, flotation devices, etc) for guest use along with two sturdy carts for transporting everything; baby gates, a high chair, and a pack and play with bedding for our toddler; well-furnished screened balcony and porch for sheltered enjoyment of the outdoors; great outdoor shower and porch swing. We loved it all.
The kitchen was basic, but clean and very well stocked with skillets, pots, sheet pans, cake pans, an abundance of dishes and plenty of small appliances including a hand mixer and a slow cooker.
If we are able to visit this property again, the one small addition I would make to my packing is a few extra bath and kitchen towels, as we did find ourselves regularly running short with cooking for five kids and five kids getting cleaned up multiple times a day.
In sum, the property is immaculate and even better than pictured, and the best I have seen for a family with small children. Plus, when we discovered we had made an error in our reservation dates and payment, Melanie and her husband provided some of the kindest and most generous customer service we have ever seen.
Thank YOU for being wonderful guests! We are so glad you chose Southern Attitude for your family to make memories at. It makes us happy to know we played a part in even a small way. We rely on our guests' feedback to keep moving forward in improving our house and meeting expectations. We wish you and your beautiful family many more joys in life and hope to host you again.
From the very first contact I knew this was going to be a great experience. The owners were very responsive and caring. The home was beautiful and very clean. We love the Fort Morgan area and the Southern Attitude has gone right to the very top of our list. You can truly believe the 5 star reviews. They are well deserved!
Thank you so much for being such caring, wonderful guests! We are always so happy when our efforts are appreciated...we strive to provide cleanliness and a 'home away from home' atmosphere. Please keep us in mind for your future travels....we'd love to have you return!
Search No Further !!!
My husband and I just returned from our second-time stay at Southern Attitude and, once again, are perfectly delighted with everything this bright and roomy beach house has to offer. We cannot say enough about how lovely, clean, and comfortable it is, from the well-stocked kitchen and cozy beds to the vast array of beach provisions right at our fingertips! We LOVE the location as well; it’s just a short walk to the beautiful, white, sandy beach… yet back far enough from the water to give us the quiet privacy that we crave on vacation. If you are vacillating at all as to which beach house to stay, search no further! Southern Attitude is THE PERFECT choice!
Kathleen, thank you so much for your glowing review and appreciation of Southern Attitude and all it includes. We do our best to have the most comfortable, well-kept house for our guests possible. We truly appreciate our return guests and look forward to hosting you again when you are ready!
You won't find a better value!
This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at Southern Attitude. The fact that we chose to return a second time should tell you all that you need to know. The house has EVERYTHING that you need for a memorable stay at the beach. Fort Morgan is our favorite place to stay, away from the commercialism of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
The Johnsons are wonderful people to deal with, and we look forward to returning in the years to come.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We continually try to do our best to make Southern Attitude a true 'home away from home'.....clean, comfortable and well stocked. We truly appreciate great guests such as you and your family and hope to see you return for yet a third stay!
Great house, property is exactly as described.
The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with on the reservation and correspondence before and during the stay. The house is very clean and spacious. Our two families with children had plenty of room. The house sits within short distance to both the pool and beach. We will definitely stay again in the future!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We appreciate great renters like you and your family and would love to host you again!
