About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths with View of the Gulf of Mexico

You won't be disappointed in Sandy Bottoms! Our Spring rates (now through May 27) have been discounted for a limited amount of time!

We don't add on any fees for departure cleaning or lodging tax! What you see is what you get! If you are comparing rates with other houses, be sure to compare total to total, as most owners add additional fees for cleaning and lodging tax. (If you use the optional online booking feature offered by VRBO or HomeAway, there is an additional fee charged by HomeAway for online booking).

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 Blu-Ray, and satellite with premium channels such as HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. Connect your favorite Bluetooth enabled device wirelessly to listen to your favorite tunes.

For dining, we offer a large dining table with six chairs, plus two barstools at the kitchen counter. 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.

****Our posted rates include all fees, taxes and departure cleaning. (If you use the online booking feature offered by VRBO or HomeAway, there is an additional fee charged by HomeAway for online booking). Minimum reservation is 3 or 4 nights in the off season. In Summer, weekly reservations only, from Saturday to Saturday. For stays of 7 nights, the 7th night is free. We will consider monthly rentals in November, January, February and March on a case-by-case basis.****

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
