Property 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, License To Chill, is meant to feel the laid back style of the Caribbean. The house is professionally decorated in the bright colors of the Caribbean Islands. Colorful sofas, chairs and painted furniture all combine to bring to mind the laid back feeling of being on a Caribbean Island.

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, and dishwasher! Full cooking utensils and pots and pans are provided.

A large dining room table with 6 chairs provides ample eating space along with a good view out to the beach

The first floor also includes one bedroom with a king bed and a private full bath. A beautiful porch, running the width of the house allows you to relax and look out to the beach. 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 three bedrooms. The large master suite includes a king bed, private full bath and a private balcony looking out to the beach. A TV with DVD player is also included. The second upstairs bedroom is complete with a queen bed, and TV and DVD player.

The third upstairs bedroom has two twin beds and a TV and DVD player. The two upstairs bedrooms share a large bathroom.

Consistent with upscale houses, our house comes complete with unlimited local and long distance phone service. We also include wireless high-speed Internet access. We have installed a high quality stereo system in the living room and have speakers on the front porch for listening to your favorite beach music.

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.

Activities:In addition to the beach, the Ft. Morgan Peninsula is central to a number of other activities. Should you want to combine golf with your beach vacation, some of the top golfing in Alabama is close. Kiva Dunes, the number three ranked course in Alabama and the number one public course (by Golf Digest) is less than two miles away. Also close by is the Peninsula Golf Club.

Shopping opportunities abound. Whether you are looking for that perfect souvenir to commemorate your trip, or are looking for the upscale shopping of all your favorite name brands, you will find them nearby. The souvenir shops of Gulf Shores are an easy drive and include ample parking. The huge Riviera Outlet Center in Foley is less than a half hour away and includes all of your favorite brands. The boutiques of the beach are all aligned along Highway 182 and are just minutes away.

Location

Golf: This course routed along the beach woodlands and Mobile Bay is a good test for golfers of all ages. Other golf courses include 54 holes at Craft Farms which includes courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Larry Nelson, the links-styled course at Glen Lakes and the tough Lost Key course designed by Arnold Palmer that winds through the coastal marsh. Whatever your playing level, you will find an enjoyable and affordable course to fit your needs.

If water sports and fishing are your bag, you will find a public launching ramp less than a mile away for access to Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Just down the street is Ft. Morgan Marina with full service marina facilities (and a very good bay front restaurant). The location of our house provides easy access to the excellent fishing of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico and great spots to try out your jet skis!

Shopping opportunities abound.

Of course, no trip to the Gulf Coast is complete without sampling the wonderful local fresh seafood. The dining opportunities seem endless. The Gulf Shores dining favorites such as Mikees, Gulf Shore Steamers, The Shrimp Basket and SunPlace Else I and II will provide you the opportunity to sample local seafood. Of course, other dishes for you landlubbers are also available. Most all of the restaurants are very kid friendly and include children's menus.
