Bay to Breakers house description

'Beach Life' Beach House is located on a great private beach access street in the Fort Morgan area. The house has (4) bedrooms and (3) baths and (3) great porches with gulf views. My beach house is great for large families or just a group of friends who want to enjoy the beach. All the (4) bedrooms have satelitte/cable TV's. The living area includes a large 42' flat screen with blue ray player. The house has high speed wireless internet service with free local & long distance calling. The spacious kitchen has all the amenities of home and a great bar for informal dining. There is also a dining area located off the living room that is great for dining and board games.

The Swimming pool is directly across the street which makes is very convenient for the kids and parents. You can also walk across the street to the Mobile Bay side and we have a long pier that goes out in the bay that is great for fishing and beautiful sunsets.

My beach house is just one mile from the historic Fort Morgan State Park. The Dauphin Island Ferry is just one mile that runs every 45 minutes. The Gulf Shores Yacht Club & Marina is less than a mile from the house with boat, jet ski and bike rentals. You'll enjoy great seafood and drinks at Tacky Jack's #2 located next door to the marina. It's a great place to eat outside and watch the beautiful sunsets over the bay.

New Fire Pit area with Adirondack chairs.

                        Highly recommend this house to those visiting the area - especially two families traveling together. With a TV & satellite in every bedroom it means you never have to argue about what to watch. Brad has done a wonderful job of making this more than just a "rental unit" - felt like our own personal beach home. There is quite a collection of beach gear (chairs, toys, crab cages, etc.) provided and it is an easy walk to either a white sand Gulf beach or a fishing pier on the Bay. I would advise not to bring too many supplies, however, until you check out what Brad has stocked in his pantry - ended up taking all of our condiments, spices, etc. back home.

                        While the weather was cool and windy "Beach Life" was set up extremely well. The sleeping arrangements were very nice. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with all the basics for cooking. Even though the grocery store is a few miles away, I would wait until I got there before shopping for condiments and spices. The kitchen, dining and living room set up is very open and great for feeding the multitudes. We are going back!

                        This house has everything you will need for a fantastic, fun filled, relaxing vacation. The beach was just steps away and pool was directly across the street. We especially enjoyed the porches and fire pit. (wood was supplied for us). Brad is the friendliest most hospitable host. We chartered a fishing trip and Brad suggested the "Hook and Cook" at Tacky Jacks just down the street. They cooked our catch for us and the meal and service was fantastic. He recommended places to go and things to do. Best vacation EVER!!! Thanks Brad for being such a gracious host. See you soon

                        I do not know if I can say enough about our stay. From the time we arrived until we left it was a wonderful experience. We drove in at dark and the whole place was lite and very welcoming. When we walked in we all were like WOW. Every room was decorated and supplied with about anything we needed. The kitchen was stocked like it was your own. We had bought things we could cook and was amazed that so much we did not even need because it was already available. If I had a question all I had to do was email or text Brad and he answered very promptly. Our daughter was getting married at the fort at Ft Morgan and it was only 2 miles away. My husband enjoyed the crab trap and fishing on the dock. We enjoyed the beach, shopping, walking early in the morning and evening and the great food. It was a very peaceful place to stay and I hope to be back and recommend Beach Life to anyone.

                        The facility was exceptionally well managed with many amenities not usually found in rentals - Easy access to beach, bay, pool and restaurant. The location provided a quiet atmosphere for relaxing, yet close enough to Gulf Shores for shopping and alternative restaurants. One of the nicest condos available!

                        Very nice beach home, very well equipped and appointed with a nice pool right across the street. Just a short walk down the street to the beach. Enjoyed a more private and quiet environment as apposed to a "busy resort" atmosphere. The owner, Brad, is very friendly and responsive. Our only critique was that the bedding was very soft and my family prefers a more firm bedding.

                        My wife and I have been vacationing in the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Florida Panhandle region for 25 years and Beach Life is BY FAR the best experience that we have ever encountered. The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you could ever imagine. The kitchen is stocked with all the things that even the most accomplished chef needs to prepare a tasty coastal meal. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable as well as the baths. All of the porches have great views and offer a nice breeze. The community pool is conveniently located directly across the street. The community pier on the bay is a short walk away and offers fishing and crabbing opportunities. The house even has it's own crab traps! Beach fun is just a couple of minutes down the street. A nice transport cart is furnished and makes trips to the beach a snap. The homeowner has chairs and umbrellas there for renters to use. And, he offers a tent rental service that makes your time at the beach even more comfortable. Brad (the homeowner) has thought of everything for a complete vacation experience. He left us a bottle of wine at check in and brought hot donuts by on the morning of our departure to take the "sting" out of leaving. Our entire family loved our week at Beach Life. We are already getting our week lined up for Beach Life in 2014. Thanks Brad for a wonderful experience. We love Beach Life!

                        We absolutely loved 'Beach Life'!! Brad has truly thought of everything that you need to enjoy your time at the beach. This is our third time staying in Ft. Morgan and has, by far, been the best experience we have had. The house is beautifully decorated and is definitely the cutest house on the street. I loved driving home at night to a well lit home that screamed ambiance! The well stocked kitchen was a plus. If you rent this home please make sure to pick up some mix for waffles so you can utilize the amazing waffle maker. I can't say enough wonderful things about this house!! Brad, thank you so very much for offering this wonderful home and all of it's fabulous amenities...we will definitely return in the future!!

                        I've just returned from my second visit to "Beach Life". Again it was nothing short of wonderful, awesome, and fantastic! The owner, Brad Granberry, has added all the extra touches to make the stay at "Beach Life" such a treat. The house is so clean and inviting with all the amenities - the fully stocked kitchen, a fun fire pit, beach chairs and umbrellas, a "lazy-time" hammock, great porches, comfortable beds, and much more. You will find you may never want to leave and you will certainly want to make plans to return. You'll find that this beautifully decorated and landscaped house has plenty of room, a swimming pool across the street, and just down the street is the beautiful beach. Should you want to go out to eat, "Tacky Jacks" is just a quarter of a mile down the road and is great! There is also great shopping and fun things to do nearby. Brad is very helpful in pointing out all the great things that are available. I could go on and on about how wonderful "Beach Life" is, but I'll end with a THANK YOU to Brad for a wonderful time and for being the best "Southern Hospitality Host" ever! See you again in August!!! Can't wait for another great time at "Beach Life"!!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I retired to the beach in the fall of 2012. I love the beach and wanted a place to spend time on the beach without the crowds of people.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bay to Breakers:
                      Fort Morgan area is great because the beaches are not crowded. You feel like it's your own private beach. You can walk down to the Fort and there are no homes so it's very secluded.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I love my beach house because it feels like a home. It's very causual but very upscale so you have all the comforts. I enjoy just relaxing on the porches.
