Lovely Fort Morgan Family Vacation
Lovely Fort Morgan Family Vacation
Family vacation in lovely Fort Morgan, Al. May is chilly this year, but we had a wonderful time at Island Dream Beach House on Fort Morgan Rd. We explored the Mobile Bay side and the beach of the Gulf. Took beautiful pictures of numerous Blue Herons. Minutes away from Hwy 59 we enjoyed a day of site seeing over the bridge to Fl and an evening at LuLus. We love the seclusion of Fort Morgan and the ferry ride back to home. We are 100 north of New Orleans.

Owner response: Thanks so much for your review . We love Island Dream ,also, even when it is chilly. It is so neat being so close to both the Gulf and the Bay with constant views of both. The best of both worlds. Brenda
My wife and I had not been on a real vacation for an unfortunate number of years. Both of us are extremely happy that we decided on staying at the “Island Dream” for our first vacation in a while. The name says it all. You actually feel as if you are on an island. The home comes with beautiful beaches, water on both sides, sand, ocean breezes, wildlife and is an area of very friendly people. Far enough away from the noise with all the hustle and bustle yet close enough for us to take a short drive if we wanted to go back into civilization. The “Island Dream” was five star clean, exceptionally decorated with tasteful island tropical colors and is well equipped. The home offers all the amenities of a “personal” beach home which allowed us to feel “at home” immediately. The property managers are the owners. They were easily accessible and take pride in their property. They actually seemed to enjoy allowing others sharing in their piece of heaven. On a personal note, one thing I was pleasantly surprised with during our visit in April was that the beaches were populated with mostly families…many of which were having family picnics and enjoying their day at the beach. I highly recommend the Island Dream vacation. It is a great place to both learn to relax and have fun again.

Owner response: I am so glad you chose Island Dream for your long awaited vacation. We are glad you found everything to your satisfaction. We hope you will visit again, also. You are absolutely right about the friendly people here and it is a great area for family vacations. Come again! Brenda
Island Dream is situated perfectly to enable visitors to enjoy both the beaches on the gulf and the bay with just a short walk. The views from both decks are wonderful and there is no better spot to sit with a glass of wine and experience the famous Fort Morgan sunsets. The owners were more than helpful with our plans and are "rea"l people, not someone working for a rental company. We truly enjoyed our stay at Island Dream and hope to visit again!

Owner response: Wayne, Thank you so much for your review. The panoramic views of the Bay and the Gulf of Mexico along with the natural surroundings make Island Dream so special all seasons of the year. We love it when we know we have pleased our visitors and look forward to your return. Thanks, Brenda
This house is great for a family vacation. We were a short walk from the bay and the Gulf. My husband and our family were able to enjoy the beach and fishing.

Owner response: Kathy, just walking through the back yard to the beach and looking directly at the bay from the front deck makes our house so unique. We are glad your family had a good time.
We just had an amazing time at Island Dream. The house is so beautiful and very clean. We were immediately impressed with the attention to detail that the homeowners have maintained in the home (furniture, artwork, patio chairs, kitchen appliances/cookware, etc.). There are 3 bedrooms in the house, 1 king, 1 queen, and 1 twin with a trundle. The couch in the den also opens out into a double bed. The master bedroom and the twin/trundle bedroom open out onto a beautiful deck that looks out at the Gulf. This deck is not covered so it's a great place to sit in the afternoon with a book and work on your tan. The front of the house has a beautiful covered deck that looks out onto Hwy 180 and the Bay. It's a great place for a nice shaded place to read and to watch all the runners that like to exercise while you sit back and relax. The house even has an outdoor shower and bathroom downstairs so you don't have to track any sand in the house after a day on the beach!! The house is not directly on the Gulf but just a short walk with unobstructed views of the bay and the Gulf. You truly feel as if you have the whole beach to yourself. The house states that is sleeps 6-8 but keep in mind their is only 1 bathroom upstairs in the main part of the house. You do have the luxury of having the extra bathroom downstairs but you might feel more comfortable having only 4 - 6 guests in the house. We are a family of 4 and the house fit us perfectly. The owners were extremely helpful with answering questions and recommending their favorite restaurants and attractions. Fort Morgan is a short drive about 15 minutes from Gulf Shores but well worth the drive to have the peace and quiet for lounging at the beach.

Owner response: Thank you Kimbra for your review. We are glad you had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our home and the location. We really enjoy the downstairs shower and toilet area ourselves, also. The house does sleep 8 persons and some people like that because the cost is split up and more affordable for them. But we are glad you were comfortable with 4 persons. We look forward to having your family stay with us again. Best Regards, Brenda
