THE FLAMINGO is the perfect beach house for a week long family vacation or just a weekend getaway! Situated on the Fort Morgan peninsula on the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf Shores, AL, the GREAT FLAMINGO property offers all of the amenities needed in a great beach community, including two pools, (NO WHEELCHAIR ACCESS AT THE POOLS), tennis courts, and private beach access. There is WHEELCHAIR ACCESS to the entire first floor and deck. The Flamingo is the ultimate beach house for that perfect, well-deserved relaxing vacation! We provide free high-speed WI-FI internet via our cable modem and wireless router. Our new 50' plasma, HD TV is great for all of your favorite movies or TV viewing. Two brand new leather sofas just placed at the house for your comfort!
***KID SAFE LOCATION AS OUR BEACH HOME IS IN A CUL-DE-SAC RIGHT NEXT TO POOL AND BEACH SIDE!
The Flamingo is poolside (see picture from the deck, about 25 steps away!) and is located in the private beach community of Morgantown and has two pools, two lighted tennis courts, and private beach access. You can keep an eye on the kids in the pool while you enjoy the views from our covered deck. What convenience! We are located in the private beach community of Morgantown, which is an upscale, clean, and family-friendly neighborhood. The Flamingo sits beachside with visibility of the Gulf of Mexico and beautiful sunsets. It is just a short walk to the beautiful sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

This fully-equipped beach house has everything you need, so just bring your swimsuit, beach towels, and beach chairs! The first floor is completely wheelchair accessible, including master bedroom, bathroom with roll-in shower, kitchen, and deck that overlooks the pool and a view of the Gulf of Mexico. The Flamingo has an outdoor shower available to rinse off sand and also an outdoor picnic table.

15 Golf Courses in the area! Fort Morgan Marina is five minutes away offering daily fishing charters. Gulf Shores fishing is known for beautiful Red Snapper and huge Grouper! Also, we recommend you leaving your worries and stresses of work behind, but if it is a must you can stay connected by using our free broadband Wi-Fi Internet connection. Just bring your laptop computer. Come and enjoy your vacation and see for yourself all the amenities, fun, and relaxation The Flamingo has to offer!

This 3 bedroom and 2.25 bath fully furnished beach home has been the destination of choice for many beach seekers over the past several years. We have many repeat guests every year with some coming in for months at a time. We feel that this is the ultimate compliment! We think that you will not find a better value anywhere in Gulf Shores. Our private beach access, pool and tennis, the shopping, the golfing, Civil War Fort Morgan-Alabama State Historic Site, the museums, the fishing, the restaurants, the concerts, the beaches, the Mobile Bay Ferry, the sunsets, and the National Shrimp Festival are all awaiting you! Our location is perfect. We are located in the private beach community of Morgantown right on the Fort Morgan peninsula. The Flamingo is Gulf side and is walking distance down (about three minutes on our private boardwalk) to the sugar white beaches! We are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gulf Shores yet only a 15 minute drive into town. You get the R&R that you deserve but can still access all that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has to offer. Looking to decompress? You can sleep in late here, throw a steak on the grill, and then take a walk on the beach. It's only a three minute walk down to our private beach access or you can drive it in 15 seconds and park at the beach. That's what we normally do since we can load up our beach supplies and just park at the beach. No loud music and crowds here in our private beach community. Looking to party or celebrate? Take your choice of all the attractions in Gulf Shores and nearby Orange Beach. Need to stay connected? An internet Wi-Fi connection is here. The National Shrimp Festival is must see and do event! Many love to visit the world famous Flora-Bama bar. Don't forget the annual Mullet Toss! Need a slot machine or blackjack fix? Biloxi, MS is just down I-10. No less than six Vegas style casinos are available. Need a history lesson? Fort Morgan and the Fort Morgan Museum is just five minutes away. It's the Civil War Fort famous for 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!' Need to get 'gone fishing?' Fort Morgan Marina is only about five minutes away and have daily charters. The Fort Morgan Pier is a public fishing pier as well and it's only about five minutes away. It's a great place to take the kids and watch the boats unload their catch.
Let us know if you have any special requirements and we'll do our best to accommodate you. The Flamingo has been in the family now for about nine years and we try to go the extra mile for our guests! We take pride in treating our guests just like we like to be treated when away on vacation ourselves. We believe in 'The Golden Rule'.

THINGS YOU WILL WANT TO BRING:
Beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, (towels and linens for the house are provided), ice, charcoal, charcoal lighter fluid, grill brush, coolers, sunscreen, shampoo, a good book, DVD/VCR movies, golf clubs.
THINGS NOT TO BRING: Cell phone, worries, stress, the in-laws, diets, and bad attitudes! JUST KIDDING! If you bring any of this with you, most of it will change for the better during your stay! We promise! :)

                              Five minutes from Fort Morgan State Park (Civil War Fort famous for 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!'), also five minutes from full service Fort Morgan Marina and the Mobile Bay Ferry (check schedule online) which takes you over to Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines. Full gaming casinos are 75 miles away (via the ferry) in Biloxi, MS. Major airports are 90 minutes away in Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL. Jack Edwards airport in Gulf Shores, AL accommodates non-commercial flights. The National Shrimp Festival is held in Gulf Shores every year. Fall time is BY FAR the BEST time to visit! Gorgeous sunsets and the weather is perfect. No crowds, no traffic, no problems!!

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: The Moores have spent all of their lives in Alabama and enjoy accommodating vacationers into the Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area along with Lake Martin. We've been accommodating vacationers now for over 20 years. We own our rental homes so we take care of them and our guests the way they should be. It's all about 'The Golden Rule' you know! We don't allow any management agencies and/or companies to rent out or manage our properties. We do all of this ourselves. This allows us to keep our rates low and to customize and deliver our personal touch to each and every guest! Y'all come see us! :)

                              Why the Owner Chose Morgantown:
                              GOLF-GOLF-GOLF!! There must be at least 15 golf courses within 30 minutes away and two are within 10 minutes away! The World Famous Kiva Dunes Golf Course (Voted #1 course in Alabama and Jerry Pate developed) is only ONE MILE away! You gotta play Kiva Dunes! BIRD LOVERS: The Alabama Birding Coastal Trail has a stop in Fort Morgan. CIVIL WAR and HISTORY BUFFS: The Mobile Bay Civil War Trail. Fort Morgan State Park. 'Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!' You can almost hear the command of Admiral David Farragut as he led his troops into the battle of Mobile Bay. Today Fort Morgan is a testament to the evolution of American coast defense fortifications from 1834 to World War II. It's a history lesson waiting to be explored. Some regard it as 'one of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World'. Fort Morgan was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2007 it was listed as 'one of the nation's 10 most endangered battle sites' by the Civil War Preservation Trust in History Under Siege: A Guide to America's Most Endangered Civil War Battlefields. Just 6 miles away! Then take the Mobile Bay Ferry over to see anther Civil War site, Fort Gaines. We think that this part of the Gulf of Mexico is 'the last frontier' in that it has not been commercialized like Panama City, Destin, Pensacola, and even Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to an extent. You really feel like you are on your own private peninsula here! As one member of my family stated when we purchased our first property here, 'Let's move here!'.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The Flamingo is in a cul-de-sac in the private beach community of Morgantown. This offers a VERY safe environment for children and the elderly. It is RIGHT NEXT to the pool and is beach side. You get the best of both worlds at the Flamingo, POOL and BEACH! There is a zero-level and ramped entrance into the Flamingo that allows easy access for wheelchairs and those that can't handle steps very well. The Mobile Bay Ferry takes you over to Dauphin Island where you can then visit Fort Gaines, USS Alabama, and all of Mobile, AL. Biloxi, MS (Las Vegas of the South!) is just east of Mobile via I-10. Covered picnic table area under the house along with beach rinse-off shower area. Fort Morgan Museum and Civil War History just a few miles down the peninsula. Very private and family oriented beach community. Perfect environment for stargazers in that there are no city lights around. You can see stars for days! This is one of my personal reasons why I love this location! Fort Morgan Marina is five minutes away and has daily deep sea fishing charters. Come and watch the fleet unload their catch. Tacky Jacks is there too. Great food!
