peaceful and sunny
Because I was unfamiliar with the area, I thought the house would be on a street closer to beach access. However, that didn't stop us from enjoying every second of sunshine at the beach with a quick walk or a fun drive on a cart down. The wrap around deck was great; the house was super clean and had lots of room for the whole group of 7 adults. Derrik was quick to answer all our questions, no matter how ridiculous.
Great place close to the beach!
Clean, private and peaceful!
We enjoyed our stay. House was clean and good location
Family Beach Trip
My husband, daughter, dog and I all loved our stay at this private beach cottage! It’s about a 5-6min walk from the house to the beach, straight down the road. It would be a great place to bring bikes or rent a golf cart. Sitting on the porch or hanging hammocks under the house were great ways to relax. The beach was not crowded and is dog friendly! Owner was easy to communicate with if needed. We would book again!
Excellent beach house
House was clean and we enjoyed every minute. Beds were comfortable. Nice area under house to grill, eat and relax. We also enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the deck. Short walk to beach. Neighbors were nice and the neighborhood was quiet. Would definitely come back!
Crabbing and shrimping on the beach. Watch the catch unload daily at the marina. Stargazing. You can see stars like you have never seen before at night. This is because there are no city lights in sight! Beautiful warm Fort Morgan nights are the absolute best!
The Moores have spent all of their lives in Alabama and enjoy accommodating vacationers into the Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area along with Lake Martin. We've been accommodating vacationers now for over 20 years. We own our rental homes so we take care of them and our guests the way they should be. It's all about 'The Golden Rule' you know! We don't allow any management agencies and/or companies to rent out or manage our properties. We do all of this ourselves. This allows us to keep our rates low and to customize and deliver our personal touch to each and every guest!
Owner purchased this House in 1999
Why Owner chose Surf Side Shores
GOLF-GOLF-GOLF!! There must be at least 15 golf courses within 30 minutes away and two are within 10 minutes away! The World Famous Kiva Dunes Golf Course (Voted #1 course in Alabama and Jerry Pate developed) is only ONE MILE away! You gotta play Kiva Dunes! BIRD LOVERS: The Alabama Birding Coastal Trail has a stop in Fort Morgan. CIVIL WAR and HISTORY BUFFS: The Mobile Bay Civil War Trail. Fort Morgan State Park. 'Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!' You can almost hear the command of Admiral David Farragut as he led his troops into the battle of Mobile Bay. Today Fort Morgan is a testament to the evolution of American coast defense fortifications from 1834 to World War II. It's a history lesson waiting to be explored. Some regard it as 'one of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World'. Fort Morgan was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2007 it was listed as 'one of the nation's 10 most endangered battle sites' by the Civil War Preservation Trust in History Under Siege: A Guide to America's Most Endangered Civil War Battlefields. Just 6 miles away! Then take the Mobile Bay Ferry over to see anther Civil War site, Fort Gaines. We think that this part of the Gulf of Mexico is 'the last frontier' in that it has not been commercialized like Panama City, Destin, Pensacola, and even Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to an extent. You really feel like you are on your own private peninsula here! As one member of my family stated when we purchased our first property here, 'Let's move here!'.
What makes this House unique
Mobile Bay Ferry takes you over to Dauphin Island where you can then visit Fort Gaines, USS Alabama, and all of Mobile, AL. Biloxi, MS (Las Vegas of the South!) is just east of Mobile via I-10. Covered picnic table area under the house along with beach rinse-off shower area. Fort Morgan Museum and Civil War History just a few miles down the peninsula. Very private and family oriented beach community. Perfect environment for stargazers in that there are no city lights around. You can see stars for days! This is one of my personal reasons why I love this location! Fort Morgan Marina is five minutes away and has daily deep sea fishing charters. Come and watch the fleet unload their catch. Tacky Jacks is there too. Great food!
