Why we love The Gulf!: My Wife and I have been vacationing in the Gulf Shores /Ft. Morgan area for 22 years. WE LOVE it out there.
We live in Texas, but I must say, Alabama has the BEST beaches! White sugar, squeaky clean sand. The people here are great! We were there in February , went fishing off the shore ( in the back Yard!) and caught a 40' red fish and (2) 24' black drum.
I must say the sand is whiter and fluffier than ever! The beaches are as beautiful as ever. Come check us out! You will have a great time on our Beautiful White Beaches!

Why Mike Moore chose Fort Morgan
My wife and I have been vacationing in the Gulf Shores /Ft. Morgan area for 27 years. WE LOVE it out there. We live in Texas, but I must say, Alabama has the BEST beaches! White sugar sand, squeaky clean and the people are great! We were there in February went fishing off the shore ( in the back Yard!) and caught a 40' red fish and (2) 24' black drum.In January and February. In May '11 our group caught 5 pompano and lot's of catfish. We noticed several areas roped off where the sea Turtles have laid their eggs. We hope to be around when the eggs hatch and the young turtles make their way back to the sea!

5 Star Beach House....best in Gulf Shores!!!
Do you and your family a favor and stay HERE! You will not be disappointed! We travel extensively and some accommodations do not represent themselves “as photos appear”
However, this beach house DOES! It is so well laid out and ON THE BEACh! There are decks are each of the 3 floors!!! Clean, clean, clean!
I rarely leave reviews....but this one just deserves a standing ovation, on every account!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on our beach home!
We try very hard to make sure everyone has a 5 Star experience at our beach home. I am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Pelican’s Rest and the sugar sand beaches here in Gulf Shores. We hope to see you visit with us again soon!
Enjoyed Pelican's Rest
House was great, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen had everything needed for cooking. The only issue was wifi, but it was a area issue due to hurricane that preceded our arrival. This was the second time staying here!
Thank you for visiting our beach home again and taking the time to write a review.
You arrived right after hurricane NATE took a direct hit on our area and our home.
Fortunately, the only issues experienced were the WiFi issues and some minor leakage in one of the south facing windows. We had the WiFi up and running as soon as they restored the service in our area. We also ordered the replacement of all the south (Gulf Side) facing windows from Custom Widow Systems in Florida, to make sure we are ready for the next big storm . They will be replaced in mid November as their factory is slowly recovering from the hurricane as well.
Thanks again for your kind comments, we look forward to your next visit!

Great Place to Stay!
Perfect vacation rental! We've stayed at Pelican's Rest before, and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Gulf Shores. The home is lovely and meets our lodging needs. The owner is very accommodating. However, and this is definitely a housekeeping problem, we were disappointed to find the floors dirty, light bulbs burnt out in various bathrooms and 4th floor closet, and the bedspreads soiled. Kitchen counter tops were dirty and sticky, and the dishwasher top rack is broken. Despite those inconveniences, this is a top-notch rental, and we look forward to many more summer vacations in this home.
I appreciate your taking the time to submit a review of our beach home and giving us a 5 rating!!
Thank you for being a repeat client as well!
It just so happens that we are visiting our beach home right now and are leaving to go back to Texas tomorrow , August 31, 2017.
We came down to install new,more colorful, couches in the living room , two accent chairs and replace the pub table and chairs that were starting to get wobbly. We also arranged for two new matching Refers, ( installed tomorrow)
and three new AC units with Wifi Thermostats that I can monitor from home to make sure there are no issues with heating or cooling.
We got your review while we were down here and contacted the management company about your concerns. Sandy floors seems to be a Constant issue with our home and well as most of the other heavily used homes directly on the beach. I spoke with the manager in charge of cleaning , Tom W.
Tom told me that the sand gets ground into the tile which makes it difficult to keep the floors as clean as we like them. He said that we need a deep tile and grout clean at least once a year to insure that they can get all the sand up that can become embedded with all the foot traffic . We scheduled a complete deep clean and SEALING of the tile and grout today for the main floor , and expect it to be done in between arriving guests for the main floor. We plan to have this done twice a year. An electrician is here right now replacing the lights in the rooms and the lights in the 4th floor master as well as the laundry room. Kay and I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and bought 7 new bedspreads for the management company to use so they can have plenty of back up bed spreads whenever they have to send a soiled bedspread to the cleaners.
Tom also said that if ANY of our guests have ANY problem with cleaning or any other issue, Please call Meyers immediately. He said that will get on it, morning noon or night!
Beautiful home, perfect for large families and very accommodating
We loved the home, the location and the laid back atmosphere. A great vacation! Except for a problem with the downstairs air conditioner, all would have been perfect. Maintenance responded quickly and the temperature was more comfortable but never really got cooler than 74 the rest of our stay. Fine for some in our group and too warm for others. Loved the space, quietness of the floors, layout and design. You could join in a big get together or feel like you were in your own resort space within the same house.
Thank you for your review!
I am glad you and your families enjoyed our beach home! It is indeed a large home that can accommodate many guests without feeling cramped.
I checked on the the AC issue , was told that it was handled, but based on your comments , I instructed our AC contractor to replace the AC units on all three floors.
As of 8/12/ 17 , all three A/C units have been replaced with the latest, highly efficient, Coastal AC Units!
Thanks again for your review, we want you to have a 5 star experience , please visit us again!!

It is a world class course! I have played in the winter and early spring with the rates as low as $60 a round. Runs a little higher in the peak season of course. The Peninsula Golf course is a top rated course as well. it is a few miles further east on the north side It features (3) Nine Hole courses to choose from. There is a 'State Park' course as well. It is located just East of Walmart on Hwy 180 about 19 miles east. It is not as opulent as the Kiva Dunes or Peninsula courses, but it is more affordable. Overall, southern Alabama is renowned for their many and beautiful golf courses. The Visitor guides at the Beach home will give you many more examples of golf courses,their locations and phone numbers.
