About Bonnie and Patrick Murphy

This property is owned by Patrick and Bonnie Murphy of Cincinnat Ohio.

We have 4 wonderful children and blind brown labrador that loves the beach as much as we do.

Bonnie and Patrick Murphy purchased this house in 2000

Why Bonnie and Patrick Murphy chose Surf Side Shores

Patrick and I bought this house back in October of 2000 so we could come to BAMA and watch my baby sister play Division 1 Soccer for USA in Mobile. The first four years we limited our guests to family and close friends due to the amount of time we spent at the house and beach each year. As the kids have all gotten older our trips to our little piece of heaven on earth are not as often as we like so we decided to share our home with others so they too could make the same kind of lasting memories that we have been making with our family and friends for so many years!

What makes this house unique

At Bonnie Dune you will find a great level of detail has been taken to make sure your stay will require nothing more than bringing yourself and your bathing suits and towels to the beach! We want people to be able to come and relax and enjoy without wondering what they must bring to the house for the week. If you are afraid we don't have what you might be looking for just ask. We have taken the time to develop everlasting relationships with all the folks that care for Bonnie Dune and know our folks will go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is stress free!

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great Beach House! My husband and I stayed a month and enjoyed every moment of it. Very private setting and a great view of the beach. We spent a lot of time in the sun room, having meals or playing cards. The house is very clean, and the decor was very nice. We loved it so much we are booking it for next year.

This property, the owners, and the neighborhood are the best. This was our third year and hope many more to come. Couldn't ask for a better house and the owners are wonderful people. This place has all you need and the new updates are top notch. Thanks Bonnie and Patrick for all your hospitality and kindness to our needs.

The house is beautiful. Bonnie, the owner, is very sweet. I have been trying for two seasons to make this trip. Had to cancel the first time in which Bonnie was very accommodating in rescheduling. It was well worth the wait :)

The property was lovely. I was very impressed with the remodel. Pictures don't do it justice.

We typically vacation in Destin but wanted to go somewhere less busy and crowded this time. Bonnie Dunes was exactly what we were looking for. Truly it was our most relaxing vacation to date. No crowded beaches and the home itself is surrounded by greenery that offered plenty of privacy while swimming in the pool. We set our chairs and umbrella up the first day and left it at the beach the whole week with no problems. So nice not having to lug it back and forth everyday. The beach was not crowded at all so there was plenty of space between each beach set up. We enjoyed evening golf cart cruises through the beach community each evening. Our oldest daughter said this was favorite vacation and we completely agree. I highly recommend Bonnie Dunes!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you all enjoyed our home and the area. I vacationed in Indians Rocks Beach Florida for 33 years before stumbling on Fort Morgan Alabama and well the rest is history. We bought Bonnie Dunes and have been vacationing here ever since. We would love to have you all back anytime and welcome to the Bonnie Dunes Vacation Family! Have a wonderful rest of the year! Bonnie

Amazing first time experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have ask for a more perfect rental! The view was amazing! The house was more than we could have imagined. We were first time beach goers and everything turned out perfect. The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all. We highly suggest anyone that wants to stay in the Fort Morgan area to give Bonnie Dunn a try you won't be disappointed, I know my family and I weren't. We will definitely return some day. Thank you Patrick and Bonnie for allowing us to rent such a top notch house.
