Homes, Single Family house description

This is not your typical beachfront rental. . . Sam's Place was originally built to be a beach home: it has the comfort you're looking for during your precious vacation time. Comfort right on the sand!

Four spacious bedrooms, hardwood floors in foyer and dining room for 10, plenty of 'elbow' room, and tastefully decorated, almost 3000 sq ft. Far from the busy beaches of Gulf Shores, this spot is an ideal location for the family that wants a bit more seclusion and the opportunity to enjoy each other.Two empty lots directly to the east of Sam's Place and four empty lots next to our neighbors to the west! Our home offers beautiful sunsets -- especially from the sunroom with a table for coffee or drinks. Windows all throughout the house will not let you miss the gorgeous scenery of the waves hitting the sand, dolphins surfacing, and gulls flying over the waters to scoop up the tasty seafood this gulf has to offer. Strolls can be taken on the beach or on the paved serene road in front of the house. We think you'll like it -- we know we do! Call with all your questions - we'd like the chance to get to know you a little bit ourselves. Families only, please.

From Memorial Day through the second week of August we only book weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday. Any other date we can accomodate any request. But we do require a 4 night minimum.

See the rate schedule below for weekly rates. We also add a $650 Refundable security deposit which we send you a refund, provided no house rules or house contents are broken.

I hope you will enjoy our beach house as much as we do. We go and stay at the house as often as we can, so you can be certain that we are making it just as comfortable for our guests as it or ourselves.

The house is 2850 sq. ft., each bedroom is quite large as well as the common living areas.

Sun-Room: We have made the sunroom into a multi-purpose room that has 6 floor to ceiling windows in the circular room with a table & 6 chairs (more can be added) to be used for: meals, coffee, game room, or just enjoy the captivating views from each seat.

Living Room : features vaulted ceilings with a wall of tinted windows almost 20 feet high, so you can view the awesome sunrises & sunsets and everything in between! Plus a 60' TV that has internet access and easy access to Netflix (your Netflix account of course)

Kitchen : Is very Large and ample storage cabinets & draws (all wood). It is equipped with everything you would need for a week at the beach, including two refrigerators (so you can make just one trip to the grocery store) and an ice maker. We provide all the cookware, silverware , utensils, dining sets, small appliances, full pantry space, & all the large kitchen appliances. The Jenn-Air stove is located in the center island with sufficient prep-area for cooking. Also, located in the kitchen is a 6 seated 'Counter height' Dinning Table, just where almost everyone likes to gather when meals are being prepared ~ in the kitchen!

Dinning Room : the Dinning room has a table that will seat 10 easy and is open to the rest of the living area, so you also have that beautiful view of the white soft sandy beach, blue/green gulf where the dolphins play in the early morning and those terrific Stary Nights!

2 Master Bedrooms: Two large bedrooms, each have king beds & French doors that open to the deck (1st level and 2nd level). Both face the beach; have Televisions with Cable; extra large closet space and a sitting area. You can fall asleep and awake to the sounds of the gulf shore just below. The upstairs master has its own bath with a large separate Shower and a two person tub.

Kids' Room: is brightly painted with pictures, and rugs of colorful fish & boats. The kids room has a queen bed & Twin bunk beds. The kids room is located on the 1st level so that it is near the adults & the stairs won't be a constant concern.

4th Bedroom : Is large enough for 2 comfortable Queen Beds and is located on the 2nd level and overlooks the living room below. From the 2nd level you can also see right across and out the large windows on the beach side of the living room, so every possible spot in the house has the best views of the beach & gulf.

That totals sleeping for: 12 Comfortably plus we have a sofa sleeper in the living room with comfortable mattress in the sofa bed.

Sam's Place Beach House
Sleeps 12 - 14
approx. 3000 sq. ft. Living
Over 700 sq. ft. of Private decks with Lounge chairs for sunning, & comfortable cushioned chairs and a sofa for hanging out on the deck after a hard day of relaxing on the beach. The lounge chairs have comfy cushions (stored on a shelf in one of the downstairs master bedroom closets).
There is a hand held shower head on the steps leading up to the deck so you can clean off wet sand & some salt water before you walk up to the house.

Plus an outdoor shower under the house with hot and cold water.

I'm sure you will enjoy the beach house as much as we do and the beach is at your front door & Mobile Bay is at the back door, and the Gulf is just a stone's throw away from the deck.

Keywords: beach front, gulf front, beach house, ocean view, water view, on the beach
Snowbirds welcome - please email if interested in monthly rental during the winter.

I could go on & on, but you should just come see for yourself.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We live in New Orleans and we wanted a secluded place on the beach where we could get away from the City.

              Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
              First, Fort Morgan Beach is at a very quite and secluded beach. Only 3 condo towers are located on Fort Morgan's beaches and the rest of the beach has either beach houses, is part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge or is part of the Historic Site of Fort Morgan. The house is located so close to the beach I can throw a rock and hit the water. Sam's Place only has one immediate neighboring house (to the west), there are two large open area of beach two both the east and west of Sam's Place and you can see Mobil Bay from all the windows on the north side of the house. So there are no second tier houses located directly behind the house. So Sam's Place just feel so secluded

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The area is just so quite, and there is very little 'light pollution' (street lights or outside lights that remain on all night causing a glare) that when you star graze at night from the deck, while listening to the ocean, the stars really stand out.
