About the property

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

Come make your beach memories at our beach home - Ocean to Bay, (OTB).

OTB is a premium beach home across the street from the Gulf of Mexico beach. Off the back porch OTB overlooks Mobile Bay. OTB is part of the Heritage Shores community with 2 pools, a tennis court & lots more.

This Fort Morgan beach area is like stepping back into time. It is quite and remote. People either love that or hate that. Families come for there vacation where they set up there beach umbrellas and they don't take them down until the evening of there last full day. You can literally own your part of the beach. If you want to go to the beach to slow down and relax, Ocean to Bay is the place for you. Then, to top off all the quite 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 being close to you while you are on the beach.

Ocean to Bay and the beaches of Fort Morgan are for you if you want to own your piece of the beach while you are on vacation with a slower pace and fewer distractions you can take in the water, the surf, the sand, the peach and the quite. And....

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 muscles.

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. Any craft to either boat the 40 mile radious of Mobile Bay or you can go around the point at Ft. Morgan and be in open sea. If fishing is your passion, with a salt water fishing permit you can fish in the surf or off the pier at Ft. Morgan you 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.

About Karen House

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

Karen House purchased this house in 2004

Why Karen House chose Alabama

After Ivan, our original beach home was condemned due to storm damage and we sold our portion of 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Place needs a little work and arrival was disappointing

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived we found that the place was not cleaned from last users. We had to move sheets from one bed to another so we had a place to sleep. We did manage to find a few towels to use and had to wash dishes. The rest of the stay went well but feel the full cleaning cost should be discounted due to being inconvenienced the next day for them to clean.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the miscommunication with cleaning crew. However, a full clean was performed within 10 hours of your arrival. And another full clean was required upon your departure. Sounds like otherwise, you and your wife enjoyed your New Years Eve getaway. The Owner

Great vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this location was awesome! We enjoyed the view, the nice house, the quick access to the beach, and the great food! The beach was very clean, family friendly, and private. My family and I were very comfortable here! The home itself was very clean and well-maintained. We'll be back for sure!

Our stay here was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a small group of young adults from our church for a retreat. This place was perfect. It accommodated our group of 11 very comfortably. The house is beautiful and has everything we needed to make a great retreat. We loved the location and the solitude from being further down fort Morgan road. The beach is just a short walk from the house, we were able to go there very easily for devotionals. Would love to stay here again as a group or with our family!

Lovely home, pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean and comfortable. Was great for our family of 5 with plenty of room to spare. Owner was quick to respond to any questions we had while on site. I would recommend this property to others, with the note that you should be prepared to take your own food or be willing to drive to Gulf Shores for meals, as there are very limited food choices in Fort Morgan! The swimming pools are great; wifi is slow; beach access is convenient and privacy is king!

Much Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing!! We were so pleasantly surprised with how clean the home was, how comfortable the beds were, and how large the house is. The view of Mobile Bay from the kitchen/back porch was beautiful, and was quite the picturesque backdrop for our family dinners. The beach was such a short stroll away and, although not waterfront, the beach was visible from the front porch - another pleasant surprise. Our visit extended through the last week of September and we felt as if we had the entire place to ourselves. We were the only family at the pool every day of the week and the beach was deserted. It was the most wonderful place to get away from it all and spend quality time with the family. Thank you so very much - we cannot wait to return!

House had every convenience and was comfortable; within easy walking distance to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved that each bedroom had a king size bed and it's own bathroom. The openness of the living room to the kitchen and dining area was a big plus. We enjoyed spending time on the back porch which looked across to the bay. Also, easy walk to the beach - only 1 block. Unfortunately at this time of year ( mid Sept) the flies were bad on the beach. Overall a very enjoyable vacation.

Owner's Response: We are especially glad that you all enjoyed the king beds in each bedroom. We do too! Yes, about those biting flies. Sorry about that!. The biting flies are a phenomena that occurs each fall as the Gulf Coast nights begin getting cold. It is the ONLY negative we can find about beaching in the Fall. All the pluses are the calm ocean, the high sunshine, the abandoned beaches and the 80 degree temperatures. Thanks for choosing our home. The Owner
