Property description

The 'Dunes' Beach House is located in Cabana Beach subdivision, 8961 Pompano Way, on Fort Morgan Peninsula (an area that has beautiful sugar white sand beaches) in Gulf Shores, Alabama, next door to the open, uncrowded beach of Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. We are almost beachfront without the cost. Pompano Way Road dead ends in front of our house, walk left out of our driveway and about 40 steps you are in the sand, no roads or lots to cross. Just down the road is the historic
Ft Morgan, and a ferry that crosses the bay to historic Fort Gains on Daulphin Island.

The 'Dunes' brings back memories of long ago, when you sit on one of the two decks, and listen to the birds, watch the waves roll in and sometimes dolphins playing. You can enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, see the stars at night with no obstruction of street lights.

The two story Beach House is cozy with two covered decks, swing, two picnic tables, hammock, beach umbrellas, and chairs.

-Ground level has an outside shower with hot and cold water, utility room with a washer, two dryers, gas fish cooker, and lots of beach toys, maybe even a forgotten kite. There is a picnic table, swing, hammock and chairs.
-Main level has a deck overlooking beach/gulf, living room with sleeper sofa,tv,dvr,vhr,radio and stero system, The kitchen is open and fulled equipped. It has a breakfast bar which seats two and a table that seats eight. Off the hallway are two bedrooms, and a shower bath. One bedroom has twin beds with tv, the other has two queen sized beds. This level has all ceramic tile flooring which is easy to maintain.
-The master bedroom is up a flight of stairs to the top level. It has it's own bath, and private deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. This room has walk-in closet, tv, telephone, kingsized bed and wood floors.

When they are training you can also enjoy the Navy's 'Blue Angels', which are based in nearby Pensacola. They train in the Cabana Beach area. We have one of the pilots trained, when we are on the beach and he comes flying low over the gulf we frantically wave and he does a 180 degree flip to flying upside down!

We have volunteer fire department, so no fireworks are allowed.
Pets are allowed with prior approval.

1/2 of rental rate is required when reservations are confirmed, remainder is due 45 days prior to reservation date. There is a refundable $150 damage/surety deposit.

SPECIAL SNOW BIRD RATE winter periods of 1 Dec-14 March, 1 to 3 1/2 months.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Retired rocket scientist married to old former flight attendant.

Why the Owner Chose Cabana Beach:
We are residents of Alabama and were married in Mobile, Al many years ago. We love the quietness of the ocean/beach area of Fort Morgan peninsula.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we travel until we can go no more, we reach the ocean. There, having left the stress behind, we sit on the deck and watch the beachcombers out very early, listen to the cooing of the doves, and at times watch the dolphins play. It's just a short ride on our bikes (hanging in the utility room) to the store to get a paper. Then we do only what we want to do. Just settle in for the relaxing, best beach vacation you have ever had.
