The season?

Fall in the Southern latitudes.

It truly is the most beautiful season that will soon be upon us here on the pristine ‘white as sugar’ sand beaches splashed by turquoises waters. It is the Gulf of Mexico. The sun warms the body. The water? A refreshing temperature.

Come for that romantic (3) three or (4) four night getaway.

Lounge around the pools stroll or sun on the unpopulated mile of beach. Recall the days of your youth when quite beauty at sea side was taken for granted. Time has slowed here in fort Morgan, sample it.

Holiday on the beach, drink in the warmth.. . . .

Ah, #203 the Palms in the Dunes at Fort Morgan, Alabama. we have two (2) full Baths, full size washer and dryer.

Warm gulf waters, sun drying on sugar white beaches, soft-spoken conversation without agenda, long walks, ankles deep in turquoise tranquility, surf, sun, crystalline water, the natural seductions of life.

Atop a dune at the doorstep of Fort Morgan, you will find that our end of the beach is the most quiet and secluded. More than a mile of pristine, unpopulated beach awaits you. For our guests with a feeling for history, the adventure of a massive civil war fort is there to be explored. Ah, the spring bird migration, the first landfall perch for the tropical flock as they wing their way north. It is spectacular and it happens right at your doorstep in the wooded area surrounding the fort.

Biking! Yes ,Yes and yes! The biker's park their bikes out of the weather in the ground floor stair wells. The area is flat and the road is white lined paved on the shoulder. You can ride for 20 miles in to Gulf Shores or you can ride your bikes to the ferryboat to Dolphin Island and ride around the Island.

Quiet late nights, quiet early mornings on the balcony with a tropical drink, a cup of coffee, a light meal or full banquet, all assembled from the fully equipped kitchen that is provided for your secluded comfort.

Na! You don’t have to cook, there are fine restaurants within minutes or call and have a pizza delivered. We're secluded not primitive! This unit sits ajar the outside/inside pool of our “Palm Tree Paradise”!!! The unit is highlighted with bright tropical colors and the running theme of palm trees throughout. It is truly a place to get away from every day life and immerse yourself into a tropical setting. It features a comfortable queen size bed in the master bedroom, two full baths and bunk beds for the little ones to have adventures. A sleeper sofa awaits for anyone extra you may want to bring. The soft yellow of the condo provides you with a warm sunny feeling, even while you are indoors.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying The Dunes. The condo was very clean and close to the pool and a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed Ft. Morgan very much and found lots of things to do with our 3 small children. The weather was great and the beach just beautiful. We hope to stay again at the condo and would highly recommend this condo! Thanks Robert and Dorothy (so pleasant and want your stay to be relaxing & comfortable)!!
