About Tina Scarborough

I'm a native Alabamian -- born and raised in Perry County, Alabama. I currently live in Tallassee, Alabama where our family was raised (son-Joey, and daughter- Beth).

I enjoy spending time with my children (both married), our son-in-law, and daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren, our Church, and going to the ONLY beach- Ft. Morgan!

Tina Scarborough purchased this house in 2000

Why Tina Scarborough chose Gulf Shores East

The Fort Mornan area reminds us of how Gulf Shores was thirty (30) years ago- prior to the proliferation of condos. Ft. Morgan is a quiet, peaceful place to relax and enjoy the pristene white sandy beach, salt air, and ever-present Gulf breezes; a community of single-family homes; with get neighbors and friends.

What makes this house unique

'Wastin' Away' is a short walk to the beach- the street (Bearnard Court East) actually dead ends onto the beach- there is no cutting through other property owner's yards, or walking down the beach front road east or west to access the 'public' areas. The Gulf and Bay views can be enjoyed from the front deck. Since the house is located about a 1/4 mile away from the marina, and less than a mile from the Ft. Morgan historic site wuith public boat launch and fishing pier, there are a lot of fishing and boating activities available- we enjoy shrimping and fishing in Mobile Bay.

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Wastin' Away. This was our second time to stay in Joe and Tina's beach home. It's a great place full of everything you need for a beach vacation. The kitchen is stocked with pots/pans, glassware, coffee pot, etc. and everything you need to cook a great seafood meal. There is a grill downstairs too. We love eating on the porch overlooking the beach and water so we spend our evenings out there soaking up the sea air over a great dinner. They have a nice large table with chairs that is perfect for our family to enjoy the outside space. We highly recommend this spot for your next vacation. It's clean, affordable and you will not work with nicer more accommodating people, thank you Tina and Joe!

Me and my wife loved the house it was nice and updated and just a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Tina and Joe was very helpful the whole time we stayed. They are very nice and caring. The house was perfect with new appliances and nice deck around the house. The yard was very nicely mowed when we got there and house is well maintained and very clean. Has a nice concrete pad under the house with out side shower and water hoses and charcoal grill already in place. It is just far enough out of gulf shores for privacy but not to far if needed something from the store, me and my wife were very pleased and we will be back in the future!

Convenient to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Wastin Away is a cozy clean house and convenient to the beach! I arrived Monday, and that night while I was enjoying the large deck and awesome galaxies of stars some guests two streets over had a fire works display which was a fabulous way to start my vacation. My dogs and I walked the beach, sat under the umbrella, and enjoyed the ocean. I got plenty of rest and relaxation, and my time.

Tina and Faye have southern hospitality and are really great to work with during the rental period. I really love the Fort Morgan peace and quiet, and I will schedule a return visit next year.

Nice property and owners!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin and will come back. We wish the toilet was fixed (ran a lot) and weeds in yard mowed but little things compared to the great stay we had. Thanks to Tina and Joe and faith who cleaned early for us and helped me when I locked myself out!
