Such a beautiful place. Everything you need is at the house. Kayak, surf boards, towels, plenty of beach toys. Kitchen is fully stocked. All you really need to bring is food & toiltries. Perfect location. Close enough from the town so beach is very private but just a short drive to town. House is perfect. We had 3 families with 6 adults & 6 kids. We had room for more ppl if needed. Never overcrowded. Only complaints were wish there were more patio chairs-maybe some loungers world be great. And arrival & departure on Sat is a nightmare. Traffic is awful during those times. Took us 1.5 hours from the highway to the house on arrival. Come in early in the am & explore the town. Took us 2 hours to get to I10 on departure. Leave early in the am to avoid traffic. Maybe catch the ferry out of fort morgan if you book a slot in advance. Defiantly go to florabama if you like bands/entertainment. It was way fun.

Best beach week ever for us.

Could not have asked for more!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome vacation for me and my extended family. The owner Kate was so helpful and you can tell the family loves the home. It is a little dated but what it has to offer makes up for it and then some. The home is furnished with everything one could ever want. It has more then ample cooking supplies (including spices). The family made available so many toys, chairs, fishing equipment, kayak, surf boards, sand toys, etc. I will not hesitate to book here again next year. We had a family of 6 adults and 6 children and everyone was very happy and more then enough space. This home is truly a gem.

We loved it. I was worried the grandkids would really miss a pool, all for naught. They loved it. We will stay again. Was nice to have 2 living rooms. Kitchen was well stocked. Thank you

Wonderful beach home

  • 5 of 5

I have spent time at the Gulf my whole life but this house is definitively the nicest place we have ever stayed. It was so roomy for our families. The kids took over the upstairs living room and the adults could hang out in the downstairs living room. The bedrooms were comfortable and it was great to have 4 bathrooms, too. The kitchen was the most well stocked kitchen of any rental we have had. They also had all the beach toys, chairs, etc. available. In short, you will not be disappointed. Importantly, it was not near all the condos and heavily populated beach areas but close to "town". We would stay there again in a heartbeat. The ability to walk out the door to the private beach is amazing! Finally, the porches and views of the Gulf and the lagoon were stunning. Thank you for the wonderful home!

You have to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family vacation in this home and found it to be excellent. It is an older home but the space was perfect for everyone to have a private bedroom and bath. On the beach is correct,just a few steps to paradise. Very well equipped with beach toys and chairs. The kitchen had just about anything you could possibly need and all the spices and condiments were a plus. We left a few also. Easy to get to and great restaurants close by. Saw so many dolphins, a few shark(but not close),had sting rays a couple of days and some jellyfish early in the week, but expect that at a beach. One day we actually saw a sea turtle while we were swimming. The house was very clean and had plenty of towels, games, books, magazines, etc. If you forgot something you could easily find something there to serve the purpose. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Carter House is the Best

  • 5 of 5

The first thing my husband said when we arrived at the Carter House was it's even better in person than in pictures. This house was very well stocked, spices, beach chairs, toys, beach towels, grill, smoker and so much more. We even used the crab traps and took them to the lagoon across the street and caught crabs that we cooked which was a new experience for some of our family members. We saw dolphins from the balcony every day. There was not a negative thing to say about this spacious and cozy home.
