Why Donny Mecke chose Homes, Bernard Court

We fell in love with this house when we first saw it. It is just steps away from a beautiful spacious beach. The views from both decks are incredible and Bernard Court West is a great neighborhood community and a fun place to stay. The neighborhood is great and the beaches are among the most beautiful in the world.

With Tacky Jacks, the Fort Morgan Marina, Fort Morgan, the Dauphin Island Ferry and Mobile Bay just minutes away, this is one of the great vacation get-a-ways you could ask for!

What makes this house unique

Wonderful Views... Steps to the beach. Great Neighborhood, Complete renovation and refurnishing of house in 2013. Very large and spacious Great room and kitchen combo. Island Living at it's finest!

Our stay at Summer Salt 2/17/18 - 02/24/17

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed are stay very much. The home was nice, bathrooms were a little small, but adequate and clean. The beach was right there. The owners, Kay & Donny, were great to work with. We would recommend this home if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

Great house in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

This gave us a great first impression of Alabama. The house is in great shape and *so* close to the beach! The kids loved the beach so much they now call this “our Alabama house”. It was a great week and we would definitely stay here again.

Summer Salt was the perfect getaway for my family of 5. The house was clean, stocked, comfortable and a minute's walk from the beach. The owners were extremely easy to work with and were very responsive when I had questions. We plan on going back again and again. I highly recommend Summer Salt!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for family of 5. It had everything we needed plus a few extras like beach chairs, sand toys, and every kitchen gadget/supply you'd ever need. Owners were thoughtful and kind.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and roomy with a fully furnished kitchen and comfortable living area. When we were not on the beach we were hanging out below the house in the outside area enjoying the nice breeze off the ocean. The owners were very detailed in their directions and were very pleasant to deal with. We look forward to our next trip down to Fort Morgan and we look forward to staying here again!

Fort Morgan - End of Street - 150 Feet Away!
Car: necessary

At the Summer Salt House, you are on the West end of Pleasure Island, on the Fort Morgan Penisula.

You are just a few minutes away from the Fort Morgan Marina, Tacky Jacks Bar and Grill, and the Dauphin Island Ferry. A short ferry boat ride to Dauphin Island and you are at the Dauphin Island Sea Labs Estuarium, where you can learn about and see local sea life from the Marine Biolgist who manage the Sea Lab.

Historic Fort Morgan is just a few minutes to the West. Completed in 1834, Fort Morgan was active during four wars — the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and World Wars I and II. The fort is most famous for its role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. Union Admiral David Farragut damned the torpedoes and went full speed ahead to win the battle. The massive fort contains more than 40 million bricks and pays tribute to the skilled masons, many of whom were enslaved African Americans.

The fort features an active living history program that interprets all the military periods and holds an annual event commemorating the Battle of Mobile Bay, where Admiral Ferragut stated, 'Damn the Torepedos, Full Speed Ahead!

The Beach side town of Gulf Shores is to the East and offers many parks, a zoo, shopping public beaches, golf courses and great restaurants galore!

Just a few miles away is the famous Kiva Dunes Golf couse and a little further down the road is the Penisula Golf Club. Many more Golf Courses are around the Gulf Shores area.
