Why Leroy Hanks, chose Gulf Shores
"The Dunes" Beach House is our 2nd Home, that we also rent, so we keep it updated. Kitchen, Family room and kitchen updated 2019. (4 minutes not correct on gps/map). It is only 40 steps from our driveway to Sand Dunes/Beach We are residents of Alabama and were married in Mobile, Al many years ago. We love the quietness of the ocean/beach area of Fort Morgan peninsula. Their are very few Beach areas left like the Ft. Morgan peninsula, no crowded beach, quiet, no traffic/street noise, not boxed in by High Rise buildings!. But, yet close to shopping, restaurants, etc...
What makes this House unique
You are only 40 steps to the "Sand Dunes/Beach". When we travel until we can go no more, we retreat to the Gulf. There, having left the stress behind, we sit on the upper (or lower) deck, and watch the beachcombers out very early, listen to the cooing of the doves, and at times watch the dolphins play. It's just a short walk to the store to get a paper. Then we do only what we want to do. Just settle in for the most quiet, relaxing, best beach vacation ever! At night, and with no street lights, you can see so many stars, they seem so close, you feels like they you are among them! can reach out and touch them!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The beach is a short easy walk (about 60 steps), and is absolutely gorgeous. Most mornings I had the beach to myself. A busy day was maybe 6 people in a quarter mile. The house was well stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, beach toys, etc. It even had a cart to take my fishing gear down to the beach. Plenty of room for the dog to run and have a couple friends come over. The only negative was the upstairs bedroom wall creaked when there was a brisk north wind. But that only happened 3 nights over three weeks, and earplugs fix that. I was looking for a quiet, little off the beaten path place that was still not too far from town, and this fit the bill perfectly. Wouldn’t change anything and would stay here again if I return to this part of the country. Give it 5 stars.
Would rent to Dale again anytime.
He was a very good renter. We spoke on the phone a few times, He seemed to enjoy the house/beach location.
Great location and dog friendly.
Nice house, well furnished. Easy and short walk to white sandy beach. Great getaway. House and beach are dog friendly. Look forward to staying here again.
Glad you'll enjoyed your stay at the Beach House.
Hope you can make it again soon.
Glad you'll got to see the "Blue Angles" practing in front of the Beach House. Sometimes their will be only one plane, other times it will be three or four.
At times you can see Dauphins swimming by.
Last year a renter called me excited. Said she just had to let me know.
They saw dauphins swimming along the shore line.
Said her two teen age daughters ran down to the water and "swam" with dauphins. They could almost touch them. Her daughter's said that would be memories for a life time!
Nice times happen at the Beach.
We enjoyed the house and how close it was to the beach. Did not have a large amount of people on the beach we all had fun and we will go back again.
Me and my family had a great time, great location very short walk to the beach which was clean and just a 15 min drive to great food.
