"A baseball tournament for our 14 year old son brought us and several other families to Gulf Shores. We had very specific needs to ensure privacy for the four families and this house was PERFECT. This house offers two things that are hard to find in the area, four master KING bedrooms all with private baths and a Sunday to Sunday rental. Two of the masters are in the front of the house on the first floor, and the other two are upstairs with wonderful views of the gulf and a shared balcony. The five fourteen year old boys shared an upstairs bunk room with six beds and a private bath. The three teen girls shared another upstairs bedroom with four beds and another private bath. A seventh half bath is conveniently located off the kitchen on the first floor.
The great room and kitchen are very spacious and comfortable with a wall of windows offering a magnificent gulf view. We cooked at the house nearly every night and had everything we needed. The laundry is just off the kitchen and the extra fridge was a great perk. The back deck is wide with several adirondack chairs, that lovely view, and a breeze every evening. The beach was simply gorgeous with lots of white sand, and even though we were there the week of the 4th, it was never crowded. We spent countless hours relaxing in our beach chairs, with our feet in the water. There are several sand bars just off the shore that make it ideal for even younger kids to safely navigate the waves.
This house is off the beaten track, and we were a bit concerned about the location as our baseball games were all in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. However, the road is in great condition, and you can cruise 55 mph without encountering any traffic until you actually arrive in town. If you are looking for some seclusion away from the craziness of downtown, this is the place! There is a convenience store just down the road from the house, "Sassy Bass" that we frequented for ice, drinks, assorted sundries, and even beach toys and hats.
The only things that prevented an "excellent" rating were a few conveniences that the house didn't offer. We had to lug four beach chairs from Illinois, as well as all towels. I would pay a bit more for these conveniences to be included. Considering the size of the house, a large gas grill would be ideal (it has an old charcoal one). Glenn, the owner, was wonderfully accommodating and answered my many questions quickly. You won't be disappointed by the Court House and we'd love to come back!"

"Our family just spent a week at Sandy Bottoms and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is so well kept and decorated really well. The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you need to cook dinner if you so choose. We enjoyed our time on the deck, but spent most of our time on the beach itself. I would definitely recommend Sandy Bottoms. Sandy did everything she promised and we were really impressed."

"This was by far one of the best and cleanest beach rentals we have stayed in. A group of 10 from our church stayed here for a long-weekend retreat, and absolutely loved it. The house is far enough into Fort Morgan to get away from the noise and crowds, but close to restaurants and small stores. The beaches were beautiful and the neighbors quiet. The inside was immaculately clean, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need, and the beach closet downstairs provided plenty of chairs, etc which was very convenient. There was plenty of space for us to spread out when needed; the beach-side deck, swing, and screened-in room were well-loved spots if were weren't on the beach. Ange was very accommodating, available and helpful at all times, and even checked in with us after arrival to make sure we found everything we needed. There were no children on this particular trip, but the house was very well-prepared for children and we are planning to return with our own little ones soon. Absolutely no complaints, and we will definitely be back. Thank you Ange for a great beach house!"
