The house and its location were great!! The house was stocked with everything you could need for a week on the beach. I loved the owner's attention to detail. We had a great time and would love to come again next summer!!

Very convenient and clean comfy home

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. It was a plus to be able to bring our dogs. The cottage was clean and roomy, close to the beach and especially nice kitchen. It was great to have the washer and dryer and I came home without a ton of washing to do. Next time, I will pack lighter and wash more!

Cheerful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was the perfect size for our family of five, plus the family pet. It was cheerful, great covered porch, outdoor shower and station for rinsing off sand. Close to beach but not too close for tropical storm flooding to affect us. We thoroughly enjoyed the house!

We had a wonderful time and the home was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our vacation. There is a short little walk to the beach, and you can see the gulf from the deck. The home was well stocked and everything was wonderful.

Awesome

Great beach house! Upon arrival everything was perfect, clean and everything worked. Great location, short walk to the great beach, Tacky Jacks grill close, short drive into Gulf Shores city for more choices on dining etc... Loved it! We had great weather for the week. You can tell the owner takes pride in her properties with great accommodations and E-Z instructions on how to access internet, TV etc.. We will return again.

A place of history, leisure and nature, the Fort Morgan peninsula extends like a long finger west of Gulf Shores, Alabama. If you're looking to get away from crowded beach bars and tacky souvenir shops, this section of the Alabama Gulf Coast is a good option. Much of the peninsula is part of a protected wildlife refuge, but many beachfront accommodations are available. You may have to drive to Gulf Shores to pick up major supplies, but it's well worth that small hassle to experience these pristine, sparkling sugar-white sands on your beach vacation.
