About the Property

3 Bedroom/3 Bath - Sleeps 12 - (3) Kings; (1) Double; (4) Singles.

Ocean to Bay (OTB) is a gorgeous beach home across the street from the Gulf of Mexico overlooking Mobile Bay off the back porch. OTB is part of the Heritage Shores community with 2 pools, a tennis court & lots more.

OTB and Heritage Shores is located in the area known to the locales as Fort Morgan. The beaches of Fort Morgan and the general area of Fort Morgan is like stepping back into time. It is remotely quite. We find that guests either love the quite remoteness of Fort Morgan or they hate it.

The vacationers of the Fort Morgan area experience wide open beach with lots of access and few people. If you want to go to the beach to slow down, get away from hustle and bustle, and to truly relax, Ocean to Bay and the beaches of Fort Morgan is the place for your family vacation.

Vacationers can set up their beach umbrellas with their first day on the beach and never have to remove them until they leave the beach for their last full day. Many say that they feel that they get to 'own' just a little part of the beach. Then, to top off all the quiet and privacy of the Fort Morgan area, you have the excellence of the dining, the excitement of the clubs, music and dancing, and the fun of the shopping just a short drive away in Gulf Shores.

At the beaches of OTB you will see dolphins constantly; you can snorkel in the shallows with all the shoreline fish, then walk the beach at night with the whole family with a flashlight to see the crabs scurry off, all without any worry of other people intruding on your family memories while you are creating them on Fort Morgan beaches.

Ocean to Bay and the beaches of Fort Morgan are for you if you want a slower pace with fewer distractions where you can take in the water, the surf, the sand, and the peace and the quite.

Don't forget to bring your bikes, kites and boats. There are 50 miles of paths and roads within one mile of OTB where daily you can run, walk, hike, bike, boat, wave runner, windsurf, dive, snorkel or just simply sit back and not move a muscle.

The fort of Ft. Morgan is 3 miles away from OTB and it has a $1 fee public boat launch where you can launch any size craft. Mobile Bay offers a 40 mile radius of wide open boat area or you can go around the point at Ft. Morgan and be in open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

If fishing is your passion, with a salt water fishing permit you can fish in the surf or off the pier at Ft. Morgan. Catch fresh fish for dinner, yum, yum.

There is sooooo much to do at Ocean to Bay and in the Ft. Morgan area, that you will hardly believe just how fast the days are passing. However, there's always plan B.

Just kick back, turn off the cell phone, the ipad and take off your watch to let the wind blow you in any direction that it decides to take you for the day.

If this sounds like the way you would like to make your family memories and to spend your vacation, then give Ocean to Bay a closer look.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our original beach home was a 5 unit building located on the ocean in Orange Beach. But, Hurricane Ivan destroyed our building and nearly every other ocean front building in Orange Beach as we were hit with the eye of the storm.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
After Ivan, our original beach home was condemned due to storm damage and we sold the building. With the sale proceeds, we began looking for a new home in Gulf Shores. And that is when we discovered the Fort Morgan experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beaches of Fort Morgan are like stepping back in time. The manner in which the area still maintains beach front homes, and the way in which there are vast areas of open beach, made us fall in love with the experience of being at Fort Morgan. So, we viewed and bought our home here in Heritage Shores.
