About Teresa Mathews

We have had a house in the Fort Morgan area for many years and in 2010 purchased this dream home right on the gulf. Morgantown is a great community with two beautiful pools and tennis courts but most of all we love the laid back feeling of Fort Morgan and the beautiful beaches.

Teresa Mathews purchased this house in 2010

We LOVED it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described...it was PERFECT!! Teresa was an absolute joy! She made the trip go smooth, stayed in contact with us regarding the weather...Hurricane Nate threw us off a little..lol The beach was right in front of us, the pools were awesome, never crowded and the community was family oriented. We are going to stay here again!! Thank you Teresa!!!

Awesome vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was wonderful! It had everything we needed for our party of 13 to enjoy the beach. We had some really windy days and also had to be on the lookout for Hurricane Nate, but it was all good. Our grandchildren love the beach but loved the pools also. We all created many memories during the week, and of course we didn't want to leave.I would recommend this area and beach house to anyone for a terrific time.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location because it's away from the traffic congestion of Gulf Shores. Very convenient to the beach. Plenty of room in the house. Would liked for it to have been cleaned a bit better and toiletries & kitchen stocked better, but it wasn't bad. Overall a 4+ in my book! I would return.

Perfect family home!

It was absolutely magical having the ocean as our front yard! The house was great for all 13 of us and we couldn't have been happier or had more fun!

A Good Choice

  • 5 of 5

Great location, a rather short walk off the back porch through the dunes to the very near beachfront. Note this is a single residence and many of the beachfront competing houses are duplexes. You can leave your canopy and beach things in your spot overnight, very handy. The house has lots of beach toys and low beach chairs (but bring a few of the fancy ones). Grill is nice. Everything is more spacious than the not-wide-angle photos suggest, both interior and nice back porch. The A/C works fine, one reason we steered clear of our last visit otherwise nice house, a block behind. We had 14 people so brought 4 folding card table chairs so that everyone had a dining seat in the kitchen & dining room w/o having to eat on the couch. The near pool is walking distance and nearly as big as the 2nd pool near the entrance.

There are a few maintenance things deserving attention but the owner, very helpful in advance, also seems genuinely interested in knowing what might need attention. We have a definite bias to book here again.
