About the property

Single Family Home, 4 Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is not your typical beachfront rental. . . Sam's Place was originally built to be a beach home: it has the comfort you're looking for during your precious vacation time. Comfort right on the sand!

Four spacious bedrooms, hardwood floors in foyer and dining room for 10, plenty of 'elbow' room, and tastefully decorated, almost 3000 sq ft. Far from the busy beaches of Gulf Shores, this spot is an ideal location for the family that wants a bit more seclusion and the opportunity to enjoy each other.Two empty lots directly to the east of Sam's Place and two empty lots next to our neighbors to the west! Our home offers beautiful sunsets -- especially from the sun room with two sofas to relax with a cup of coffee or a good book. Windows all throughout the house will not let you miss the gorgeous scenery of the waves hitting the sand, dolphins surfacing, and pelicans flying over the waters to scoop up the tasty seafood this gulf has to offer. Strolls can be taken on the beach or on the paved serene road in front of the house. We think you'll like it -- we know we do! Call with all your questions - Families only, and you must be over 28 years old please.

We only book weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday.

See the rate schedule below for weekly rates. We also add a $650 Refundable security deposit which we send you a refund, provided no house rules or house contents are broken. Full rental payment is due 30 days prior to your arrival. We accept checks or money orders only.

I hope you will enjoy our beach house as much as we do. We go and stay at the house as often as we can, so you can be certain that we are making it just as comfortable for our guests as it or ourselves.

The house is 2850 sq. ft., each bedroom is quite large as well as the common living areas.

Sun-Room: We have made the sunroom is a circular shape with 6 floor to ceiling windows with two small sofas to enjoy the captivating views, read or catch up without the TV in the same room .

Living Room : features vaulted ceilings with a wall of tinted windows almost 20 feet high, so you can view the awesome sunrises & sunsets and everything in between! Plus a 60' TV that has internet access and easy access to Netflix (your Netflix account of course) and we provide HBO, Starz, Showtime, and other premium channels

Kitchen : Is very Large and ample storage cabinets & draws (all wood). It is equipped with everything you would need for a week at the beach, including two refrigerators (so you can make just one trip to the grocery store) and an ice maker. We provide all the cookware, silverware , utensils, dining sets, small appliances, full pantry space, & all the large kitchen appliances. The Jenn-Air stove is located in the center island with sufficient prep-area for cooking. Also, located in the kitchen is an 8 seated 'Counter height' Dinning Table, just where almost everyone likes to gather when meals are being prepared ~ in the kitchen!

Dinning Room : the Dinning room has a table that will seat 10 and is open to the rest of the living area, so you also have that beautiful view of the white soft sandy beach, blue/green gulf where the dolphins play in the early morning and those terrific Stary Nights!

2 Master Bedrooms: Two large bedrooms, each have king beds & French doors that open to the deck (1st level and 2nd level). Both face the beach; have Televisions with Cable; extra large closet space and a sitting area. You can fall asleep and awake to the sounds of the gulf shore just below. The upstairs master has its own bath with a large separate Shower and a two person tub.

Kids' Room: is brightly painted with pictures, and rugs of colorful fish & boats. The kids room has a queen bed & Twin bunk beds. The kids room is located on the 1st level so that it is near the adults & the stairs won't be a constant concern.

4th Bedroom : Is large enough for 2 comfortable Queen Beds and is located on the 2nd level and overlooks the living room below. From the 2nd level you can also see right across and out the large windows on the beach side of the living room, so every possible spot in the house has the best views of the beach & gulf.

That totals sleeping for: 12 Comfortably in beds plus we have a futon with a mattress in the upstairs Master Bed Room

Sam's Place Beach House

Sleeps 12

approx. 3000 sq. ft. Living

Over 700 sq. ft. of Private decks with Lounge chairs for sunning, & comfortable cushioned chairs and a sofa for hanging out on the deck after a hard day of relaxing on the beach. The lounge chairs have comfy cushions (stored on a shelf in one of the downstairs master bedroom closets).

There is a hand held shower head on the steps leading up to the deck so you can clean off wet sand & some salt water before you walk up to the house.

Plus an outdoor shower under the house with hot and cold water and a dressing area, grill under the house with two picnic tables, a porch swing and a hammock.

I'm sure you will enjoy the beach house as much as we do and the beach is at your front door & Mobile Bay is at the back door, and the Gulf is just a stone's throw away from the deck.

Keywords: beach front, gulf front, beach house, ocean view, water view, on the beach

I could go on & on, but you should just come see for yourself.

About Jamie

We live in New Orleans and we wanted a secluded place on the beach where we could get away from the City. We try to spend as much time at Sam's Place as possible and we are always remodeling the beach house to ensure that it is most comfortable for us & our guests!

Jamie purchased this house in 2013

Why Jamie chose Alabama

First, Fort Morgan Beach is at a very quite and secluded beach. Only 3 condo towers are located on Fort Morgan's beaches and the rest of the beach has either beach houses, is part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge or is part of the Historic Site of Fort Morgan.

The house is located so close to the beach I can throw a rock and hit the water. There are two large open area of beach to both the east and west of Sam's Place and you can see Mobil Bay from all the windows on the north side of the house. So there are no second tier houses located directly behind the house.

So Sam's Place just feel so secluded

What makes this house unique

The area is just so quite, and there is very little 'light pollution' (street lights or outside lights that remain on all night causing a glare) that when you star gaze at night from the deck, while listening to the ocean, the stars really stand out.

We loved Sam's place!

  • 5 of 5

House was comfortable. Lots of extras. Kitchen was well equipped to cook for large groups. We caught a stingray and 40 lb amber jack at the beach which is in the backyard! We love Gulf Shores but have never stayed this far out but loved it. Very quiet. We will be back to Sam's place!

Another Great Week at Sam's Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting Sam's Place and the experience was every bit as good as the first time.

The house itself is fantastic with everything my family needed to have a fantastic week of unwinding at the beach. From the sun room where you can drink your morning coffee and watch the dolphins swim by to the upper deck where you can watch the fireworks from the resort down the beach at night.

Direct access to the beach and plenty of room for the family to set up tent and chairs without being crowded by other families. It is exactly what we want from a beach vacation.

Greg is unbelievably easy to work with and a great owner that really goes out of his way to take care of his guests. I can not recommend Sam's Place highly enough, other than to say that after two stays we will definitely be back for a third.

Great house,great view.Lots of extra's

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay at Sam's Place.So many extra's throughout the house.The beds were comfortable and the house was clean.The 2 refrigerator's plus the free standing ice maker in the kitchen were just what my family needed for the week.The view was beautiful and the outside deck was where my husband and I and the grandkids spent many a morning and evenings.The only reason I may not stay there again is because we may need a bigger house for our next trip.Our family continues to grow.But that's a good thing😊

Another great year at Sam's Place

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's third year to spend at Sam's Place. It's a wonderful spot and is well stocked with kitchen supplies, two refrigerators, and a great supply of board games. Also, the area below the house is a wonderful hangout space with picnic tables, a grill, and a wonderful outdoor shower. The beach access can't be beat and the deck is a great spot to relax.

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at Sam's Place. The home itself is beautiful and while we had high expectations based on the photos and descriptions, it was in fact significantly better than our expectations. The main den's floor to ceiling glass doors/windows meant even when we were inside we had an extraordinary view of the beach/water and were able to watch the boats and dolphins go by in the mornings while drinking our coffee. The kitchen is well stocked and the two refrigerator and stand alone ice maker make it possible to stock up with everything you need for the week and not have to go back out if you don't want to. We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers and had a surplus of space.

The beach was lovely and Fort Morgan isn't overdeveloped so there is plenty of space on the beach to spread out and not worry about being on top of your neighbors. Greg is a great owner, very easy to work with, and always very quick to answer any questions you may have.

We have stayed in a lot of beach houses on the Gulf Coast over the years, and Sam's Place is easily the nicest and best one so far. Highly recommended!

Awesome Family Friendly Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a great week at Sam's Place. The home was perfect for our 2 families with 4 adults and 7 children we never felt crowded at all! The views from all the awesome decks were breathtaking, the kitchen fully furnished and the extra refrigerator and ice maker are wonderful. Greg was super easy to work with and all the descriptions of the property are very accurate. This is a great home if you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of downtown Gulf Shores but only a 20 min drive if you want to be apart of all the action. The outdoor shower was priceless and the area below the home was super nice for the younger children to play and hang out in the shade once the beach had worn them down. The beach itself was super nice and felt like our own private beach. Highly recommend this property!
