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!

Charming Christmas getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, dog, and I went on a Christmas getaway to the beach and came across this house. We fell in love with it the moment we arrived. The house is very close to the beach and although it wasn’t bikini weather it was 100% better than the cold snowy northern Kentucky temperatures. The house has everything we needed and more! Tina and Joe were very helpful and nice! It was very easy to get in contact with Tina which was much appreciated for any help that was needed. This was an absolutely amazing getaway and we are so thankful for Tina and Joe for their hospitality and letting us stay in their house. We will be back soon!

Exciting and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you could need. From plates and cook ware in the kitchen to towels and a hair dryer in the bathroom. Closets were stocked with extra bed linens and blankets. There was even an iron and ironing board. There is a direct TV package but we brought a WiiU for Netflix and Hulu. Under the house is a grill and storage area complete with a wagon, floating boards and other beach items. It was the perfect house and location for our little family of three. My boyfriend found it to be the perfect place to pop the big question after 4+ years lol. We will definitely be back. Maybe even for our honeymoon :)

Short walk to an awesome beach!

  • 4 of 5

Wastin Away was a great beach house in a great location. The house had all the amenities we needed for a week long stay. Tina was very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back to Ft Morgan area again. We loved Sassy Bass restaurant and the beaches were extremely clean and quiet.

About Tina Scarborough

We are native Alabamians. We live in Tallassee, Alabama.

Joe and I enjoy actively participating in our Church, traveling with our friends, boat rides on Mobile Bay, fishing and shrimping, riding the ferry to Dauphin Island, bike rides in the Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island area, and enjoying the prettiest beach in the world- here in Ft. Morgan!

Tina Scarborough purchased this house in 2000

Why Tina Scarborough chose Homes, Bernard Court

The Fort Morgan area reminds us of how Gulf Shores was forty (40) years ago- prior to the proliferation of condos. Ft. Morgan is a quiet, peaceful place to relax and enjoy the pristine white sandy beach, salt air, and ever-present Gulf breezes; a community of single-family homes, with great neighbors and friends.

What makes this house unique

'Wastin' Away' is a short walk to the beach- the street (Bernard 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 with public boat launch and fishing pier, there are a lot of fishing and boating activities available- we enjoy shrimping and fishing in Mobile Bay.


Mobile Bay Ferry

Take a ride across the Mobile Bay on the Ferry. The Ferry departs daily from Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island. Contact the ticket booth at 251.543.1364 for current pricing and schedule.

Note: The Ferry is approximately 2.5 miles from Bernard Court East where our homes are located. You can take the Ferry to Dauphin Island and even take an additional trip to Mobile Alabama from there. Dauphin Island is very close to Mobile, Alabama and all the city has to offer.

Gulf Shores Yacht Club and Marina (LOCATED at mile marker 2 in Fort Morgan Alabama)

Also home to Tacky Jacks 2 where you can enjoy drinks and dinner with friends on the bay.

Ft. Morgan

Located at the end of the Ft. Morgan Peninsula, this Civil War era fort is brimming with history. The fort also stages re-enactments and other special ceremonies throughout the year. For more information call 251.540.7127.

Ft. Gaines

Located on Dauphin Island, Ft. Gaines played an important role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. You can spend a day here by taking the Mobile Bay Ferry. Dauphin Island Sea Lab

The Sea Lab has several exhibits open to the public, including The Living Marsh, Boardwalk, The Mobile-Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay Gallery, Barrier Island, Billy Goat Hole Gallery, Gulf of Mexico, Touch Tanks, and Weather Station. You can spend the day here by taking the Mobile Bay Ferry.

Waterville U.S.A.

Excitement on land and adventures in the water. Waterville U.S.A., the ultimate in family fun, is a 20 acre water park and amusement park located in Gulf Shores.

The Track

This fun-filled family entertainment complex features an arcade, go-carts, bumper boats, kiddie rides, and more.

Pirate's Island

Enjoy miniature golfing on a lush, tropical course.

Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

As seen on Animal Planet, be sure to visit Gulf Shores very own zoo. You’ll find plenty of opportunity to explore and get up close and personal with more than 250 exotic animals and birds.

The Wharf
