We absolutely love vacationing in Fort Morgan and staying at Gary and Laura's condo. For several years we have vacationed at amazing resorts in numerous tropical destinations. Never before have we traveled to the same location two years in a row, until now. This was our second year at your condo and next year we plan to make number three. If you enjoy a beautiful setting, quiet walks on the beach, and perfect weather, then we highly recommend this condo and this area. Thank you both for allowing us to enjoy another wonderful week.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed our Fort Morgan Condo. Like you, we've enjoyed many tropical destinations, but Fort Morgan has a personality all its own ... a beautiful, peaceful, friendly beach that we simply love. We look forward to hearing from you again!

Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in Gulf Shores and in your condo! It was very comfortable for 2 adults, is very nicely decorated and the bed is SO comfortable! The view is to die for, with easy access to the beach and newest pool. We WILL be staying again!

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this property. Off the beaten path. 10 miles off the “tourist strip” but close enough to get anywhere you want to go. Clean and nicely decorated with all the extras. Pristine beach with few others on it this time of year. It was colder than normal but there is still plenty to do. We took the ferry to Daulphine Island, checked out Tanger outlets and the Wharf for shopping, ate fresh seafood to our hearts content and drive the area to take in the spectacular sites. This condo met every one of our needs. Waking up to the unobstructed view of the gulf cannot be beat, even by the high rises on the tourist strip. Perfect winter get away!

Fantastic setting!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed your condo and the view! We had 9 days of nearly perfect weather while enjoying several great restaurants and area attractions, including Fort Morgan, the Battleship Alabama and the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola. Coming from northern Michigan, we could not believe that we were able to spend time on the beach in the first week of December while watching the Blue Angels practice directly in front of us. Your condo would definitely be a place we would want to stay at in the future when we come back to Gulf Shores.

Owner's Response: Cheryl, Thank you for the review. We're so glad you had a good time. We also enjoy the free air show the Blue Angels sometimes give us while enjoying the gulf view, glad you where here to appreciate - such a treat. Hope to hear from you again. Gary & Laura

About Gary & Laura Merello

The first year after taking an early retirement we bought our first Gulf Shores Condo (Our 2/bedrm, listing 23432, is just down the hall) It's always been a peaceful beach get-away. Away from the normal tourist congestion but with numerous actives a short drive away. It seems like every trip we make, we find new Gulf Shore friends in the complex and new places to explore. We've always enjoyed our beach get-away

Gary & Laura Merello purchased this condo in 2001

Why Gary & Laura Merello chose Gulf Shores

Beaches were always our passion. We couldn't wait to travel to new tropical settings. The tranquility and beauty always puts us in proper perspective of appreciation for the gifts of nature.

After the first trip to Gulf Shores Alabama, we knew it was a place we wanted to return again and again.

We've love visiting by ourselves, with our family (10 grandchildren) and friends. The beach never disappoints us.

What makes this condo unique

The complex has enough amenities that you can stay at condo, relax and eat-in. But the local wildlife, restaurants, actives and nightlife offer some wonderful choices worth seeking out.

We love the Buffett-sound and the southern-country rock. These musical talents are well showcased in Gulf Shores

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our vacation was fantastic. We loved your condo. It was well equipped,

had a fabulous view, and was everything we expected. I hope we can come

again next year and stay a full week. We were not ready to come home.

Thanks for allowing us to visit.
