About The Owner

We have always enjoyed our family beach vacations each summer. When we vacationed in the Fort Morgan area several years back, we just loved the area. Each year we would return. With my husband being a builder, we decided to build our very own Beach Retreat. We are a very average family that had a dream. We hope that you & your family will enjoy our home as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

The Fort Morgan area is not your average beach. It is like a little peace of heaven that few people know about. This is a peaceful family beach that truely feels like home.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owner was very easy to work with and quickly responded to all my questions. The house itself was immaculate and comfortable and had all that we needed as far as kitchen utensils, etc. The beds were very comfortable. It was a very short walk to the beach, and the beach was not crowded at all. Of course we were there in mid-May, so that may be why. But mid-May is the best weather! The owner honored his deposit refund policy so we got our deposit back. We will def stay here again. THE BEST!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better vacation experience. The owner was courteous and quick to respond with communications and deposit refunds. The Beach Retreat had all the comforts of home, was very open and roomy, and was an extremely good value. Other benefits were that the neighborhood was quiet and the other tenants/owners were very friendly. The beach/water was gorgeous and not overcrowded, the fishing was great, and we had one of the best steaks ever at Nolan's in Gulf Shores. I am recommending this property to my friends and family and plan on staying again in the near future.

Well worth the extra 20 min drive

  • 5 of 5

Our family usually stays right in Gulf Shores but this year we decided to venture out a bit and we were not disappointed. Heritage Shores is perfect for preteens to walk around a bit without complete supervision and still be safe. The location of the house is a perfect distance from the beach and it was very comfortable and welcoming. More then enough room for a family of four. The house was very well decorated and clean and I am the type that usually spends the first hour cleaning but not needed here. Only issue we had was the construction of the road that enters our street. But it was finished on the last day of our vacation so no worries for the next renters :) We would definitely stay again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house is actually much closer to the beach than the picture reveals. There was plenty of space for family members to have their privacy. The little sayings on the walls are an extra special touch reminding you that you are welcome and that you should relax. If we had to name one thing to improve the stay it would be curtains in the master bedroom to block out the light for sleeping in late and napping. Other than that small detail we felt right at home.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation spot! This beautiful home made the week even better. Everything was absolutely perfect! Beds slept great, lots of privacy, and the beach was gorgeous! Only suggestion, take your own skillets! or lots of non-stick spray!
