Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
We built our Beach House, Windward, in 1998. Cindy and I started managing it in January 2008 when we listed it on VRBO and HomeAway. Our Beach House is located between the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay. You always have a great view of the water at Windward, the Gulf in the back and Mobile Bay in the front. The Fort Morgan area is very laid back and quiet which is perfect for families or couples wanting to getaway from the crowds yet you are only a short drive to the tourist hot spots. Our sugar white beaches are never crowded. The beaches at Fort Morgan are quite large, plenty of room to let the kids play or spread out to get that perfect tan. There are 3 undeveloped beach lots directly behind our house which is like having your own private beach. It's so laid back that we tell our guests to leave our beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys on the beach until its time to check-out, they are never disturbed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is always a view of the water from our Beach House, Windward. The Gulf of Mexico with its Sugar White Sand Beaches is behind us and Mobile Bay is in the front. The Beach is a 150 yard walk and the Bay is across the street from our driveway. You have a view of the water from every room in our Beach House. Windward is beautifully decorated, with Gorgeous Views. The Fort Morgan area has a very slow pace, a great place to relax and stay away from the crowds. We offer the following amenities: Plush Pillow top Mattresses as comfortable as you will find in any 4 or 5 star hotel, 400 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sheets, WIFI, 60 inch Smart HDTV with High Definition DirecTV High Definition Programming, a Fully Equipped Kitchen, and a Covered Porch or open Deck to take in the Beautiful Views or get that perfect tan.
