Sandy Bottoms is a warm, comfortable, cozy beach front home with character plus! View of dunes, sugar white sand, sunrise, sunset, and the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! You will feel right at home the minute you walk in the door!
Sandy Bottoms is located on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, about 15.5 miles from the intersection of Fort Morgan Road (Highway 180 West) and Highway 59 in Gulf Shores. You can be there in about 15 to 20 minutes!
If it is peaceful relaxation and seclusion that you desire, the Fort Morgan Peninsula is the place to be! Fort Morgan is surrounded by water, with the Mobile Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other - the most beautiful natural beaches in the area. Steeped in history, it is a place where nature abounds. The coastal dunes between the house and the Gulf are habitat for the Alabama beach mouse and nesting sea turtles! You won't see high rise, high density condo buildings; rather, you will feel like you have come to a place that is lost in time. It attracts like a magnet! Once you have visited, you will want to come back again and again!
The house is light and bright with an open floor plan in the main living area, making it a great space for family and friends to gather. Right off the living and dining area you will find a desk where you can use your laptop and take advantage of the wireless Internet. The living room, dining area and master bedroom both have access to the large deck and view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
The living room has plenty of seating with a large sectional sofa with chaise, and an additional comfy chair with ottoman. Enjoy watching TV or movies with our surround sound home entertainment system with satellite with premium channels such as HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz. Connect your favorite Bluetooth enabled device wirelessly to listen to your favorite tunes. Google Cast is also available.
For dining, we offer a large dining table with six chairs, plus two barstools at the kitchen breakfast bar. The living room, dining room and kitchen flooring is ceramic tile, so you don't have to worry about carpet stains.
Our kitchen always gets rave reviews from our guests! There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area; however, if you enjoy preparing your own meals, you won't find anything lacking in our kitchen. If you do, let us know, and we will see if we can add whatever you need!
The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size iron bed, large armoire, TV with satellite and DVD, and walk in closet. The master bath has been updated with a large tiled shower, custom travertine vanity with two sinks, tiled floor and walls, and built-in shelving and storage. The second and third bedroom are separate from the master. One bedroom has two twin beds, and the other has a queen bed and desk. Both rooms have chests and closets for storage. The second bath is located just off the hallway, and has been recently updated with a pedestal sink and porcelain tub with shower.
Step out of the living room or master bedroom to a spacious 360 square feet deck, which provides an additional living area and dining area. Enjoy an awesome view of the dunes, sugar white sand dunes, and blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! The deck is built with composite deck materials, which means no splinters and no hot wood on your feet! This comfortable outdoor living area includes a dining table with six chairs, two person glider, two loungers, and two side tables. This is a great spot to view the awe-inspiring sunrise and sunset, catch some rays, watch the dolphins frolic, or just relax and enjoy the beverage of your choice. You may even be lucky enough to get a free show from the Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron, as they sometimes practice up and down our beach! Want to get out of the sun, but still enjoy outdoor living and dining? There is an additional covered outdoor living and dining area below the house, which includes a wooden picnic table for six people, as well as a porch swing and two Adirondack chairs for additional seating. You will love the enclosed shower downstairs which has hot and cold water, vanity with sink, lighting and electrical outlet (3rd bathroom). You must experience a hot shower where you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the crashing waves!
Step from the Gulf view deck to a boardwalk that leads to a covered shared gazebo with built-in seating. From the gazebo step right onto the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico via our beach access lot. From there it is about 75 feet to the dunes, then over the dunes to the beach! Our uncrowded and unspoiled beach is natural and one of the widest sections of beach on the entire peninsula. Our beach is not groomed, and you can happily hunt for driftwood, shells, sea glass, and other treasures. You might spot dolphins swimming and frolicking in the surf, brown pelicans flying in formation, or blue herons and sea gulls right on the beach in front of the house. Relax, unwind, listen to the surf, soak up the sun, frolic in the waves, enjoy some shore fishing, watch nature, enjoy awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets, and star gaze at night. You won't be bored, but if you do want more entertainment, there is plenty to do and see in nearby Foley, Gulf Shores, or Orange Beach, just minutes away.

About Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager
Sandy Bottoms is very special to us! Our little getaway, home away from home! It is not just a rental property to us, but a home! We enjoy sharing it with our guests, and want them to think of it as their own home away from home. We visit for several weeks at a time, several times a year. We love everything the area has to offer!
Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager purchased this House in 2001
Why Vickie Boozer, Owner and Manager chose Fort Morgan
We have visited many wonderful beaches in our 30 years of knowing each other. But none of them attracted us or felt more like the best home for us than Fort Morgan. We are casual and relaxed, and are more attracted to a laid back feel. That is why we chose Fort Morgan. We love the fact that you can see the beach from the road, and there are no high rise, high density condo buildings. Our area contains mostly modest, privately owned beach homes without the glitz and glamour of other beach resort areas. We enjoy the quiet and peaceful relaxation we feel when we are at the house. We absolutely love hearing the surf from the Gulf and the views are amazing! You can even see dolphins and sea birds right from our beach-front deck! We couldn't be happier owning a little slice of paradise! We love sharing our guest photos on our Sandy Bottoms Beach House Facebook page!
What makes this House unique
We strive to provide extra amenities not usually found in rental homes. Many of our guests have said our beach house is even better stocked than their own homes! We are attentive owners, and make frequent visits to our home to make sure it is clean, updated and fresh.

The Perfect Place to Unwind!
What a great spot. My daughters arranged a birthday get away and decided on Sandy Bottoms. So glad we picked this property.
This place has everything that you could want. Loved the deck and enjoyed having breakfast and just relaxing in the morning watching the sun rise and evening watching the sunset. The kitchen has everything that you need if you enjoy cooking rather than going out. Also the washer and dryer was appreciated as we had a 3 month old baby with us.
Thank you Vickie, you hit all the requirements that we needed to make our stay so enjoyable. We love your beach house and are already planning a summer trip, but this time for at least 7 days. Can't wait to enjoy this location again.
Wonderful vacation, as always!
Our 3rd time staying at Sandy Bottoms and never disappoints. Everything from the cleanliness of the house to the beautiful beach location makes us keeping wanting to come back year after year. Cannot wait to book again!
Cozy, clean and great location!
Our family had a wonderful time during our stay at Sandy Bottoms! The beds were super comfy and there was easy walking access to the beach. We appreciated having wi-fi and access to movie channels for those "down times" with the little ones. The owner was super responsive to our needs, and very clear about check-in and check-out procedures. We created great memories at Gulf Shores!
Thank you for your review! So glad you were comfortable at the house and enjoyed your stay!
We had the beach to ourselves 💜
Sandy Bottoms was a perfect home away from home for us, as a family of 6 (4 kids ages 6,7,9,9). The kids loved playing in the sand and running in the waves. We even had dug a bonfire into the sand by the ocean and toasted marshmallows. We had the beach all to ourselves (even on spring break week!) It was quiet and peaceful and a great vacation. Thank you to the Boozers for sharing your home with us!
Bright and comfy!
This was our second year and we loved every minute. We needed a break from winter and Sandy Bottoms certainly fills the bill. Vicky hasn't missed a thing, if you need something to prepare your own meals, its there. I f you love to eat out, the Sassy Bass Amazin grill is within walking distance. A short drive to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach makes a variety of restaurants available. There is the Fish River Grill for the Gator bites, Sassy Bass's Caribbean Grill on Tuesday and Thursday for the $9.99 Ribeye, and a new place we found, that was just open a year now, GT's in the Bay, which has a nice spot on Wolf Bay with a beautiful view. My wife has fallen in love with Brown Pelicans and their antics. We especially like the proximity to the beach for our walks to discover all the interesting things the tide brings in, to just catch some sun or an amazing sunset. There are numerous things to do nearby and if that isn't enough, a short ferry ride to Dauphin Island and Mobile, makes many more available. We have already booked next year at the same time. Sandy Bottoms is a great place to reconnect with your spouse.
This review made me smile! It looks like you have found so many wonderful places to eat and things to do. But all in all, the time spent at the house seems to be the most special times!
Best beach house you can find anywhere!
We have stayed at Sandy Bottoms a number of times and cannot say enough about what an exceptional place it is. The furnishings are beautiful and functional. The place is airy and comfortable.
The kitchen literally has anything you could possibly need to prepare a 5 star meal. If they don't have it, then it doesn't exist. In fact, this applies to the entire house.
My view from the deck is spectacular morning and evening. I cannot count how many beautiful sunsets I have seen from there. And, not making any promises, but we have seen countless Blue Angel fly overs. So exciting when you hear that roar and run outside to see them vanishing into the horizon. Then back again.
The stretch of beach is beautiful and clean. Love that gulf coast water! Surprisingly, there is lots to do on that end of the beach. Fort Morgan itself is a fun trip, as well as taking the ferry over to Dauphin Island. If you are lucky you can walk just a short way East up the beach and see the fascinating partially buried shipwreck. Plenty of great places to eat close by and just up the road in Gulf Shores.
Finally, there are loads of terrific festivals just up the way in Gulf Shores. You can enjoy the Songwriters Festival, Shrimp Fest, Oyster Fest, the Hangout Music Festival and lots more and still enjoy the peace and quiet of Fort Morgan when you head back to your home on the beach.
If I could give 10 stars, I would.
I cannot end without mentioning my absolute favorite feature. The lower portion has a wonderful full shower. There is just something fabulous about taking a hot shower OUTSIDE. Even in the winter. ESPECIALLY in the winter. Love, love, love it. Plus lots of seating and entertaining space under the house to boot!
Thank you for your review! You are always welcome at Sandy Bottoms!
