About Tina Scarborough
We are native Alabamians. We live in Tallassee, Alabama. Joe and I enjoy actively participating in our Church, traveling with our friends, boat rides, fishing and shrimping, riding the ferry to Dauphin Island, bike rides in the Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island area, and enjoying the prettiest beach in the world- here in Ft. Morgan!
Tina Scarborough purchased this House in 2000
Why Tina Scarborough chose Homes, Bernard Court
The Fort Morgan area reminds us of how Gulf Shores was forty (40) years ago- prior to the proliferation of condos. Ft. Morgan is a quiet, peaceful place to relax and enjoy the pristene white sandy beach, salt air, and ever-present Gulf breezes; a community of single-family homes; with great neighbors and friends.
What makes this House unique
Only a short walk (less than 100 yards-the length of a football field). Our street (Bernard Court East) actually dead ends onto the beach- there is no cutting through other property owner's yards, or walking down the beach front road east or west to access the 'public' areas. The Gulf ( and Bay views when leaves are off the trees in the Fall and Winter) can be enjoyed from the front deck. Since the house is located about a 1/4 mile away from Fort Morgan Marina, and approximately a mile from the Ft. Morgan historic site with public boat launch and fishing pier (to be remodeled in the coming year), there are a lot of fishing and boating activities available- we enjoy shrimping and fishing in Mobile Bay.

Perfect home away from home in the beautiful Gulf Shores!
Absolutely loved Castaway 2! We are a family of 8 and this was perfect for us! Loved the open kitchen to the living room, made it great to cook and enjoy hanging with everyone while doing it. We had ample space for everyone on our family and having 3 bathrooms was a bonus! Loved being so close to the beach and being able to walk there. Honestly I can’t complain it had every comfort of home all the while being on vacation!
If you are looking for a beach house, this place would fit the bill. Note that it is located 20 miles from Gulf Shores on the Fort Morgan peninsula. Beach is just a couple of short steps & is very dog friendly. The house itself shows some wear and tear but is acceptable.
Home away from home
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Castaway 2. It had everything we needed and more. It is a very short walk to the sand. We will be back!
Tina was very nice to us and let us stay two more nights in a beach house two doors down. Thanks again
Our family had a great time staying in Castaway II in the Fort Morgan area. Tina and Joe Scarborough were great to work with. (They were are neighbors too!!) The layout of the home worked really well for our family with an 8 month old, two young girls and five adults. Just a short walk to the beach. Would love to stay there again. Thanks Tina!!
House was perfect for our family.
House met all of our needs. Kitchen could use a few items but otherwise this house was perfect. It's close to beach access and the area underneath the house is a great place to hang out. It was nice having a second refrigerator and use of a beach wagon!
The lifestyle in the Fort Morgan community is 'laid back'. If you like heavy traffic, noise, condos, and crowded beaches, our neighborhood IS NOT the place for your vacation. Ft. Morgan reminds us of how Gulf Shores, Destin, Panama City use to be- 30 to 50 years ago. The main highway leading from Gulf Shores to Fort Morgan ( ALA Highway # 180) is an improved paved road, our streets are paved; but there are no sidewalks, no traffic jams, and thus, no need for traffic lights.
Fort Morgan is a quiet and safe community. It is a mixture of full-time residents, and vacation homes.
Fort Morgan is located on the western end of a peninsula that is approximately 20 miles long. The west end of the peninsula ends at the mouth of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Directly west across the bay from Fort Morgan is Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island. A ferry operated by the State of Alabama provides auto, bicycle, and individual passage between Ft. Morgan and Dauphin Island on a regular, published schedule (mobilebayferry.com) . A ferry ride with a visit to The Estuarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab ( which features live exhibits of the local marine habitats) and tour of historic Ft. Gaines is enjoyable.
