Homes, Single Family house description

Beach vacations the way they used to be....This Gulf-oriented home, just steps from beach access and the Gulf of Mexico is located in the quaint sea-side village of Morgantown on the Ft. Morgan Peninsula in Gulf Shores. From the palm tree lined entrance to the white sandy, uncrowded beaches of the Gulf Coast you will find a wonderful family getaway. Morgantown provides private beach access for community residents, a private pool (with a second pool due to be completed by summer) and private lighted tennis courts.

Our house, Five O'clock Sumwhere, is meant to bring back the relaxing beach vacations of old. The house is professionally decorated in the theme of a colorful Beach Cottage. Colorful sofas, chairs and painted furniture all combine to bring back the quaint memories of old-time beach vacations.
The first floor includes an expansive living room with a queen sleeper sofa, love seat and chair. For entertainment we have included a large TV complete with DVD/VCR player.


The dining area includes a large farmhouse table with seating for six as well as a breakfast bar complete with stools.

The full kitchen includes upscale appliances including a smooth top stove, microwave, dishwasher and an under cabinet icemaker with a 50# per day capacity! Full cooking utensils and pots and pans are provided.

The first floor also includes two bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom includes twin beds while the other is furnished with two sets of bunk beds. Each bedroom includes a TV and DVD player. Rounding out the first floor is a screened porch oriented to look out at the Gulf. It includes a high top table and chairs as well as speakers with volume controls to enjoy your favorite beach music while you relax.

The upstairs includes two bedrooms, both with private full baths. The master suite includes a king bed, sitting room and a private balcony. A TV with DVD player is also included.

The second master bedroom is complete with a queen bed, and private bath and TV/DVD player. It has a huge picture window to see the Gulf.

Consistent with upscale houses, our house comes complete with unlimited local and long distance phone service. We also include high-speed internet access in all bed rooms and the kitchen. We have installed a whole house audio system so you can enjoy your favorite music in the living room, kitchen, screened porch and the front porch. Each room has its own volume control.

The private beach access to the gulf is just steps away. The private community pool is across the street for easy access. The lighted community tennis courts are also nearby.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I am a retired executive that strives to bring to my renters the same level of service and quality that I want in my vacations.

                  Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                  I have been visiting Gulf Shores for over 15 years. I fell in love with Morgantown the first time I saw it. The quiet family-oriented neighborhood with pools, tennis and private beach access were so unique to the Gulf Coast, I bought two houses!
