About The Owner

My wife Charlotte and I live in Vincent, Alabama, just east of Birmingham on Logan Martin lake. We purchased the lot in Surfside Shores in 1998 and built 'CHARLOTTE'S WEB' in 1999. The many memories of trips to this beautiful place with our children,grandchildren and friends will endure for a lifetime . We have recently decided to share 'CHARLOTTE'S WEB' with others, whom we hope will enjoy and treat our home as their very own. We promise to do our very best to make your stay with us the most enjoyable ever. We are just a phone call away if needed,and have a local resident of Surfside Shores on stand-by in case of emergency.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Fort Morgan

We vacationed in beautiful Gulf Shores for many years,before deciding to purchase our property. We had planned to wait a few years to build, however, 'happy feet' got the best of us, so 1 year later we designed and built our dream home overlooking the magnificent Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this house unique

The peace and quiet of this area is unique,while only a few steps from the beautiful beach,on a dead end street, within walking distance of one of the most celebrated golf courses in the south, yet only 15 minutes from the bright lights,shopping,restaurants,and amusements of the Gulf Shores area

Charlotte's Web is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about our rental of Charlotte's Web!! It was perfect that I expect it to be our "go to" place for all of our future trips! Don't miss out on this one! The owners are great, the house and location is great and if I could own a house on the beach, it would be this one!

Owner's Response: Melba Thank you so much for such a nice review. Charlotte and I and our family and friends enjoyed charlotte's web for many years before we began sharing with others. We have since met and shared our home with many friends/guests. To meet and share the home with wonderful guests like you and your family makes it all worth while. Incidentally, return guests receive a 5% rate discount . We look forward to having you as our guest again soon. Best regards, Bob & Charlotte Garrison

Beach At Its Best!

  • 4 of 5

Our family( there were 9 of us) had a great time at the beach! The house was only a few steps away, and it was great to be able to leave our chairs, umbrella, canopy, etc. set up all week. In addition to beautiful sand, the fact that it is not crowded was a big plus for us. In reference to the house itself, the kitchen was extremely well stocked with every kind of cooking utensil we needed. I do agree with another reviewer about wishing we could have sat more people around the table for dinner, but that really was not an issue. The upstairs provided a totally private area and the fact that the downstairs bedrooms were on opposite sides of the house also provided privacy. Bob, the owner, could not have been more agreeable. We had a slight maintenance issue, and he responded immediately by sending someone to quickly fix the problem. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

Always perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting for 6+years for girls beach weekend in August. The deck in the morning is hard to beat. Quiet area, comfortable house. Just what you are looking for if you love the beach and want to relax. Bob is the best owner and has always been wonderful to us.

Gem by the beach!

  • 4 of 5

All of the conviences of home. Water hose and shower under the deck came in really handy. Walk to the beach is very short. We took a canopy to the beach on the first day and left it there with our chairs and beach toys. We could see it from the deck and even at night it was never bothered. Furnishings and decorations are a little dated, but we didn't spend much time indoors. It was clean, the A/C was cold and beds were comfortable. Loved having a washer and dryer. We packed our bags to come home with all clean clothes. There is a house right infront, but all you have to do is turn your chair on the deck 45 degrees and you have a beautiful view of the beach and open sky. Home owners were very helpful and friendly.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have rented Charlotte's Web during the 4th of July week. Again we were very pleased with everything. We saw dolphins everyday, many days several times. Beach access is good and sitting on the deck just watching the ocean was wonderful. Everyone had a wonderful time and Bob was very accommodating for us this year and rented to us Sunday to Sunday. We hope to continue our new tradition each year. Thanks Bob and Charlotte for sharing your home with us.

This was our second year vacationing in Gulf Shores. Charlotte's Web was perfect for our group. Three adults and four children, 11, 11, 9, 5 were all comfortably accommodated in the four bedrooms with plenty of sleeping space. The deck was a wonderful place to watch the sunrise and enjoy the gorgeous views and sounds of the waves crashing. The owner was very friendly and helpful every step of the way. The kids enjoyed all of the games and toys that were available. We will definitely keep this property on our favorites list and I would recomend it for anyone!
