The Dunes house description

Welcome to our family retreat! We look forward to sharing the profound serenity and fresh air at this beach house with views of both the gulf and Mobile Bay. Share in the magic of our house that many of our previous guests have written about in our guest book. The sound of waves will lull you to sleep at night. The sun will rejuvenate you during the day. Our home is bright and roomy with a perfect angle for maximum views of the beach and ocean.

We are tucked away near the end of the Fort Morgan peninsula, away from the endless crowds. We have a large duplex home of over 3,500 sq. feet, with a drive under carport, elevator and four floors. You will notice granite countertops, pine floors and large walk-in showers in our home. Enjoy a spectacular view of the ocean and still have the beautiful grassy dunes. Mobile Bay can be seen from the front side of the house. Our home is appointed with the finest linens, accessories and gorgeous beach chic furnishings. Be sure and watch the YouTube clip of the tour of the house.

Truly, our beautiful beach home is perfectly located and a home for all seasons. We want you to see what is just around the corner, a mile up the road, and a hop, skip and a jump away. This lovely beach home is located in the popular zip code, 36542. For the golf enthusiast, Craft Farms, also known as '36 holes of pure Palmer Golf' is an experience you don't want to miss. The Craft Farm is Alabama's only Arnold Palmer signature design courses. Open fall and winter too! Next, Gulf Shores Golf Club. This is a challenging course with an elegant clubhouse. The 18 championship holes were designed by the renowned father-son team of Jay and Carter Morrish. Kiva Dunes Golf Course. A magical story of how two strangers at the time, Jim 'Scrappy' Edgemon and Jerry Pate (Winner of 1974 U.S. Amateur and the 1976 U.S. Open) met. Later, with a handshake and a smile, the two partnered up making Kiva Dunes one of the Southeast's finest golf courses.
