Property description

'Wastin' Away' is a cabin that has been remodeled with modern conveniences. It is a small house, with two bedrooms and 1 bath, but has a large living area. It is close to the beautiful Gulf beaches, offering guests real value in their visit to the beach.
'Wastin' Away' is fully furnished- all you need to bring is your food and clothing for a fun time at our un-crowded, beautiful white sand beaches.
For those interested in bay or gulf fishing, a public boat launch on the Fort Morgan historic site, approximately 2 miles away, offers quick access to both Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Homes, Bernard Court (Gulf Shores, AL, USA):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'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.
