Ocean View East is the big purple house between mile markers 4 and 5 on Fort Morgan Road. This is a 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath duplex with an adjoining door to Ocean View West that can been opened if you should need both sides for large gatherings. This unit is brightly decorated and sleeps 14 comfortably (the bedrooms are quite roomy).
There are two decks that overlook the pool and have a great view of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. The pool is shared with Ocean View West. The water is only about 150 yards from the house and you do not have to cross or even get on any road to get there - very safe for children. Two master bedrooms are upstairs with their own balcony over-looking the pool. There is one master bedroom downstairs for those that do not want to deal with more stairs!
The pool is only 5 feet deep at its deepest. There are many lounge chairs and other seating around the pool. The pool is gated. There is an outdoor shower to use before entering the pool or going upstairs.
This house is very 'Kid friendly'. We also accept small pets between Labor Day and Memorial Day.
The living area is large enough so that everyone can gather to watch TV, play games, etc. Each master bedroom has a king-size bed and a private bath. The fourth bedroom has two bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a twin on top it also has a private bath. There is a half bath along with a washer and dryer on the main floor.
This is a non smoking unit and we do not rent to student groups. There is parking under the house for 6 cars and plenty of parking outside. We require a $200 deposit. Check our bargains for the winter months! We live about 45 minutes away between Foley and Fairhope just off Highway 98. We try to keep the home filled with all that you need, but if you find you need anything we will try our best to get it to you.
Many families have made great memories here at 'The Purple House' and we hope that you and your family and friends can do the same.

Our large family loved this vacation! The house, pool and beach were perfect. The host, Jeanie, was very nice and took great care of us. We can’t wait to come back!!
We loved staying at the big purple house. 6 adults, 2 littles and 2 small dogs and we had everything we needed and more.
Jeannie's love for beach life is obvious in the space she's created for her guests. Comfy spacious king beds with soft sheets in 3 rooms. 2 bunk beds with twins on top, fulls on bottom in the 4th bedroom. All rooms had full baths and were very roomy. Covered deck above off 2 of the bedrooms upstairs with beautiful views of the ocean.
Covered deck below off the living dining kitchen great room area with view of the pool below. Very close to the beach, no road to cross, just a short walk between the colorful houses just in front and you're there.
We love Fort Morgan, and the purple house is less than a mile to the Sassy Bass for great food and there's a small well stocked grocery store attached. We also love Behind the Pines and of course Tacky Jack's. And there's an ice cream shop close by.
The beach is clean and quiet and not at all crowded. And being able to take our dogs with us was so wonderful.
Jeannie is a gracious host and she makes the best chocolate chip cookies. She made us a huge batch and they didn't last long.
We rented the east side and plan to bring the whole family next time and rent both sides. There is a door that connects the 2 sides in the living room, so we can all be together.
Thank you Jeannie, for the most perfect week I've ever had at the beach.
Family gathering--every family had bedroom & bath. Owner even brought us her homemade cookies. THE BEST
Cozy inside---cold outside!
My family and friends spent 4 nights in Jeannie's great house. The place was very spacious, and extremely well designed so that we had enough private as well as larger spaces. We never felt crowded. Jeannie was very helpful. Our only disappointment was the weather as we were there when "the freeze" hit. Fortunately, we were able to enjoy the warm and cozy home, and enjoyed puzzles, cooking, reading and playing games. We loved walking on the deserted beach before the cold weather arrived. I highly recommend her rental units!
It was great working with you. I just wish I could have turned up the temperature for you all..
The house was clean and very spacious for our family of 6. Even w many visitors, plenty of room!
We we're able to stay for a month and enjoyed the view, quiet walks on the beach, and all the space this house provided! We had a small problem with the washer and the owner was very helpful in getting it fixed immediately! Loved the owners, and this house suited our family of 6 with ample space for our guests too!
We loved having you and your sweet children. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Thanks also for leaving the house in such good shape. Hope to see you again sometime.
Good luck with with your new home..
Jeannie and Ed
Perfect for vacationing with family or friends
This property was perfect for my group and for a relaxing vacation. The beach is less than a minute's walk away, and the location is just far enough from the city that we essentially had our own private beach. Size wise, this was more than ideal for my group of friends, but I would quickly suggest it for family getaways as well. It has a good sized kitchen/living area, private bathrooms for each room, and felt incredibly homey. My group had absolutely no complaints about our stay!
