About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Rent this gorgeous beach home, The Hak Shack, and enjoy the warm Gulf waters along sugar white beaches. Cool down in your own private pool with majestic views of both Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The Hak Shack is located approximately 150 yds. from the beach (about a 5 minute walk). The Fort Morgan area offers a little known retreat from the over crowded beaches further east. All the amenities without the hassle!

Enjoy the breath-taking view of Mobile Bay and Gulf from the balconies off the master bedroom suite. Start your day with a heart-wakening stroll along the beach and enjoy frolicking in the gulf surf. Lounge around your very own private pool and end your day with magnificent sunsets over the Gulf and Mobile Bay.

Gulf Shores is a short distance away with attractions, shopping and dining.

The Hak Shack is the ultimate private retreat for your family and friends.

About Brenda & Douglas Hakenewerth

Brenda and I met 30 or so years ago when I was a young sailor in the US Navy, stationed in Seattle Wa. After many wonderful adventures together, we now have 3 grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren. Since we first met, it has been our dream to have a place at the beach where we could get away from it all with our friends and family. For us, The Hak Shack is a dream come true.

Brenda & Douglas Hakenewerth purchased this house in 2011

Why Brenda & Douglas Hakenewerth chose Alabama Gulf Coast

The Hak Shack, with it's private swimming pool and private lot is a dream home. Ft. Morgan is the best kept secret in the world. No maddening crowds, commercialism..........just miles and miles of beautiful, white sand beaches and great sunsets.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Very nice house with a lot of amenities. Great location. Very private.

  • 4 of 5

The house was everything we were looking for in a vacation home. The house was very nice, but could use some general updates and maintenance. It showed some general wear and tear from being a heavily rented home. It could use some deep cleaning and fresh paint. We also experienced some issues with multiple items during our week stay. When on vacation, you shouldn't have to be in touch with the owner to have general maintenance issues resolved. I had to contact Directv and schedule a service call. Also, the owner had to arrange a washing machine service call, as well as a sewer service call during our stay. We had to do without a washing machine for the second half of our stay. The owner was definitely responsive and did get people out there to look at each concern. She also had extra towels and wash clothes delivered. I do give her lots of credit for accountability and for open communication (via text). Even though there were issues, I'd still recommend others to rent from these owners.

The Hak Shack was everything promised by the owners, and they were very friendly! Being close to everything offered at Gulf Shores, but in a more secluded area, was so relaxing...The beach wasn't crowded, the views from the house were great, and the pool was very nice!

Hak Shack

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. The pool was a nice bonus because I lived in it. There where plenty of beach and pool toys for the grandchildren and me. There were plenty of dishes, pots and pans and utensils. Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great. We loved the secluded home away from other homes..Would love to do this again.

Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were down there last month for our son's wedding. We enjoyed our stay very much. The pool was such a nice extra to have. My son-in-law and baby granddaughter really had a lot of fun in it. The rooms were beautiful and the decks were a very nice feature. I also liked the feeling of privacy that we had when there, yet we were only about a 2 minute drive from "Tacky Jack's" restaurant at Fort Morgan which we took advantage of. This place is a perfect place to just get away for the weekend or however long you want to stay. I especially liked being able to view the Bay and the Gulf from our bedroom windows upstairs. Definitely a "go to" place that I would recommend to anyone.
