There was a time, when only a few tiny homes and motels dotted the sugar white sandy shores of the Alabama Gulf of Mexico. The Fort Morgan Peninsula will take you back to that special place you remember as a child. And,The Indies takes you there with class.
The Fort Morgan area is truly special. You can see for miles with an unobstructed view of the natural beauty of sand dunes and sea on one side and pines and Mobile Bay on the other.
Turn on onto Ft. Morgan Road and your stress of hwy 59 roles away. The tourist traffic went straight and you jogged right. Just be sure to stock up at our local Wall Mart or grocery first. Not because you will be too far away, but because you won't want to leave! Your just a 20 minute drive now to tranquility.
Growing up on the gulf coast it has been hard for me to watch the high rise condos take over the landscape. For my family to find a spot where time has stood still is truly a blessing from God.
When you rent KingFish 503 your going to get chairs, umbrellas, wave boards and a cooler. We also have a newer golf cart for rent for 145.00 for the week, less for shorter stays. Your trip to the beach will be extra fun with a lot less work. No gates to open, no tripping over loungers at the pool and you can leave the chairs out for the duration of your stay just (keep above mean tide level).
KingFish is anything from a typical condo. First of all you will make your way up a speedy elevator to the 5th floor unit 503. You will walk into a hall with the Bayview guest room on the right with a King bed, 32 inch sony, and access to huge granite bath. A New pillow top mattress and fine linens await you. The bunk room is on the left. Bunk Beds as well a full size iron bed. The kids can curl up on new mattresses and soft pillows and sheets while viewing their favorite movie on a 32 inch flatscreen, dvd, and vcr player. There is a Wonderful closet for suitcases and play.
Continue down the hall and the view hits you! Smack in the face. Floor to ceiling glass! I can't tell you how many times I've stood at the sink and just said Wow! Now this kitchen is just top of the line. All the way around. I had to furnish it that way too. So your going to have everything you need. You can even cook a turkey dinner! I did!
Park your groceries on the hall bench and just head on out to the spacious balcony and enjoy the view for a spell. We have seating for 6 and a nice rack to dry your towels.
Headed back in you can't help but notice that big 50' tv on the wall. The furniture is all brand new with a queen pull out sofa sleeper. There is a recliner also!
The dinning table will seat 8. This is so important to me. I like us all to all sit down to at least one meal a day as a family, and it is hard to find seating for that many in a condo!
Just so you don't miss it, my bedroom is my absolute favorite spot in the whole condo. color,plenty of storage. Oh and did I mention new pillow top mattresses with fabulous bedding that makes you want to dive right in. And oohh so soft pillows. (there's a firm in the closet if you need it)
And let's not forget the bathrooms. They are quite frankly over the top. Granite, tile, top of the line, huge!
I've been in a lot of condo's in my day. I can honestly say that this one is, simply put... FINE!
Onto property is a nice pool. (heated in cooler months, which is nice!) a wonderful waterfall that gives you great ambiance, and a kiddie pool. As well as a hot tub that the kids love! All outside for you to enjoy the view.
I love the weight room!Small but it has All the equipment you need for a good workout.
There is a barbaque grilling area. My husband loves his grilling and We have an electric grill for the balcony. I cooked two porterhouse steaks to perfection and I've never have used an electric grill in my life.
You are about football's field's length from the beach. The view with the vibrant colored beach houses is stunning. I really thought the homes would detract from the view but they don't. They actually ADD to the view. You can drive and park really close to the board walk to the beach can rent our golf cart and take it right from the condo to the beach. There is a golf cart path so you can just drop the family off to wash their feet and hit the pool while You tool on down to the parking garage.
This is really a sweet set up. You can launch your boat across the street and leave it in the marina on a nightly or weekly basis. They will also store your trailer. My brother who is THE FISHERMAN in the family, says we have the best fishing IN THE WORLD right there within eyesight. If your a fisherman then you know those oil rigs coupled with being near the pass between the bay and the gulf make for good fishing. You don't have to go far to get a great catch. But you can always hop a charter and go DEEP!
I don't fish much so I end up popping in Tacky Jacks for a blackend fish or oyster poyboy! or I may cook up my own from the marina dock store.
There are tons of things to do for everyone in your family. The Fort is within two miles. The history is all right here! Please take a day and explore this amazing architecture and step back in time. Make sure you walk the beach to the Fort one day and walk around the end of the peninsula of the fort. You can see the ship channel, the fisherman, Sand Island Lighthouse, and Daulphin Island. ( you can see these from the condo as well) Your sure to collect large seashells like you've not seen before. You can also take a ferry ride on foot across to the Dauphin Island sea lab.
Going in the other direction there is the Bon Secure National Wildlife Refuge. They give eco tours and there are several areas in you can kayak and take in the natural surroundings.
Now ...I plan to hit the spa at The Beach Club one day! It's only 5 minutes away. Have a nice lunch in the gorgeous dinning room and then retreat for a lovely spa experience. I have heard it's nice, but I will let you know for sure! (ok, I did hit the spa! it was GREAT! request KC for your massage. He is fantastic. We did not eat, but enjoyed the hot tub. Really a first class facility.)
Headed into town, Waterville is a great family fun waterpark! Lu Lu's is also fun for the kids with lots of sand, toys and live music! The track is my daughters favorite. There's putt putt, kiddie rides and big kid racing and lots of games.
You know I could go on and on about MY gulf coast. I am proud to be from this area and thankful to own a piece of it. Your going to love it too!

- There is a fabulous view from the 8th floor sundeck. Lounge chairs with misting stations make this view perfect in any weather. You can see the ships making their way up into Mobile Bay. The sun can set any time of the year and your going to have the best seat in the house. You are at the end of a peninsula so you see the gulf, the pass, the bay and Dolphin Island. Really something special. There are also two great golf courses just up the road, along with the best fishing on the gulf coast. Red Snapper fishing starts the first of June and Amberjack and Tuna are always in season. And all you have to do is walk across the street! Call and reserve your charter and you'll have fresh fish for supper!...moreless

The Indies condo is located near the end of Ft. Morgan Road on a peninsula. Our unit 503 has incredible views of the breathtaking bay to your north and the mesmerizing gulf to your south. The condo is ajacent to the Gulf Islands park and Fort Morgan. Miles of unspoiled beach and hours of exploration await you in this tranquil, less traveled end of Pleasure Island. When you can walk for miles and there is no one else in site, you know your someplace special. From the rooftop you can watch the ships navigate the pass up Mobile River as you relax on a deck lounger, or take in a sunrise or sunset. This particular area has the absolute best fishing around! You can catch a charter right across the street. Maybe you just want to explore a bay bayou in a kayak. You may want to play a game of golf. With three renowned courses within 15 minutes, you can't miss. Or maybe you just want to simply relax on the beach. You are only 15 minutes from civilization but a world away.
So if your ready to head to town you cant miss Lu Lu's. Kids LOVE this place and with live music most days you will too! The Hang Out is also a crowd pleaser. The Ol Mil Daulphin Cruise is fabulous. Take the sunset cruise and get you a bushwacker from the bar to take along. Then stop off at Sea and Suds for great raw oysters overlooking the gulf.
Then on a rainy day take the ferry across to Daulphin Island and visit the Sea Lab. Then drive into Mobile out on the causeway to explore the Battleship. Or head East to the Pensacola Navel Museum where you can actually ride in a flight simulator. Or for the women in us..go shopping for a bargain at the Tanger Outlets. And sure there are movie theatres.
Music is a big draw for this area. Most bars will have nightly live bands. And there are lots of festivals and activities going on every month of the year.
There is so much to do, but mostly I like to just hang out on the beach with the kids.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I grew up in this area! On a local farm that sells grass finished beef and the largest peanuts you have every seen. We are Christians who believe in the Lord, believe in family, believe in friendship and hard work! My husband and I have been married for 25 years and have three children. He grew up in Illinois but Loves South Alabama as much as I do. We have lived and traveled all over the world. We marveled that we never found an area that could touch the beauty of our gulf coast or the spark of our people and southern hospitality! Enjoy our Gulf Coast. Mark, Connie, Lily, Samuel and Noah Glassford
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
This was a foreclosure we found after years of searching. It was in our price range! Several prior offers on properties fell through. We feel that God closed those doors and opened this one. The area this property is on, is as unspoiled as you can find.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
What makes this place special is the lack of crowds, unspoiled beaches, miles to run and never see a soul, and Sunsets to die for all wrapped around a stunning condo. We offer the use of a golf cart to make trips down to the beach easier along with chairs, umbrellas, wave boards and a cooler. Since my husband and I are from the area we can assist you in any number of ways. Just give us a heads up on what your looking to do and we will help you make this the most memorable vacation you have ever had.
