Why Donna McKillip chose Surf Side Shores

Fort Morgan is a unique environmental peninsula with 8200 acres of Bon Secore wildlife refuge. Completely surrounded with Mobile Bay to it's north and the Gulf of Mexico to it's south there are many beaches to choose from. Fort Morgan Peninsula ends at Fort Morgan state park where a fun ferry ride can be taken to Dauphin Island and Mobile. Fort Morgan is not an overcrowded tourist area so if peace and privacy are what you seek you found it.

What makes this house unique

You do not need to bring plastic water. The refrigerator has filtered water and ice. Guests report loving the house's layout with the bedrooms on either side and the main living in the center. This provides privacy when needed and coming together when desired.

My husband and I , have just enjoyed another amazing week at the beach staying in"my blue heaven" , which is truely heavenly. The minute you step across the threshold you feel all your worries and stress melt away, what an absolutely beautiful home , so warm , cozy and welcoming .

Donna is a joy, a kind and caring hostess, whose passion for this home shines through with tasteful, high quality decor.

Delightfully situated, very easy access to beach, Enjoying amazing sunsets and sun rises, whereby the enormity and beauty of the beach, ocean and sky make you feel the presence of a higher power that envelops you with a sense of peace and serenity.

We cannot recommend this highly enough, you will enjoy every minute of your vacation

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Loved this beautiful beach home! I don't know that I've ever had a more relaxing time at the beach. We very much prefer renting through the homeowner than through a management company. Donna was helpful and we were able to handle the arrangements easily. As some other reviewers indicated, I was unsure about both the view and the walk to the beach. The view was absolutely lovely and it was an easy walk to the uncrowded beach. The porch alone is worth a trip to this house! Love all the extra touches- the swing, hammock, and outdoor shower under the house. The furnishings and beds were very comfortable. This home is in a great family neighborhood. The beach in this area is simply amazing. Highly recommend!

Comfortable Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at My Blue Haven over Labor Day! The beaches were quiet and there wasn't much traffic. This house is perfectly setup for giving everyone a private space on opposite ends of the house but also has a fantastic great room and screened porch for everyone to be together as well. This is not your typical beach rental, it offers all the comforts of home; it is welcoming, cozy, and relaxing. We spent most of our non-beach time on the screened porch listening to the ocean and watching the storms pass. Our dogs loved laying on the porch and catching the breeze! We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.

Our week at My Blue Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week here with our four young children and my in-laws. Upon arriving, we were a bit surprised to find two beach houses in front of My Blue Heaven, but this turned out to be no issue at all, as there is still a beautiful sweeping ocean view from the home and it's porches! (Not a problem at all, just worth mentioning so other renters are aware.) Once inside the home, we realized that it was even more beautiful and updated than the pictures show. Every detail has been attended to, the living room furniture is recently brand new, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed (besides groceries), and the decor was wonderful! Our favorite was the screened in porch (with a beautiful view of the ocean) where our children ate every meal on the picnic table and I read on the comfortable sofa every evening. It was just a very short walk through the dunes to the beautiful beach! We loved that we were able to leave our tent and chairs on the beach all week. Very convenient. We fell in love with this beach house, and hope to book next year's trip here as well!

Tennessee beach fans

My friend, my brother and I spent a week for the first time in this lovely home and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Thank you, Donna, for letting us spend some "beach time" here in your home! We are all three 60+ now and all single now so we love to get away as we are now "family" and enjoy being together. We really enjoyed the screened porch! We brought Maggie Mae and Mandy (our fur babies) with us and they enjoyed this place as much as we did! Mandy even had a blast chasing the waves as the water went out and running from the waves coming in! I wish I had videoed her! The place was very clean and beachy feeling and we loved how close it was to the ocean! Had a wonderful view from the living room and the deck and screened porch! Thanks again for letting us stay here and we do plan to come back!

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We drove from Kansas and had a wonderful time. My wife continued to comment on how well decorated the house was. It was very cozy and relaxing. The screen in porch even on the hottest days was very comfortable. It was an easy walk down to the beach. We travelled with a 10 and 4 year old and my wifes parents. Everyone commented on how much they loved the house and were sad to leave. This was our 1st trip to Gulf Shores and we enjoyed our star so much we plan to make this an annual vacation and we hope to stay at this home each time.

My only comments for improvement would be directions on how to operate the television remotes (my older in-laws really struggled). The master bed was kind of loud when getting into it and it would be nice to have a good non-sick pan to cook on. These in no way were a big deal,
