About the property

***Recently remodeled, new photos coming soon!***

Footprints in the Sand was built in 1992 and offers guests and incredible beach vacation value. With four bedrooms and two baths, this home has plenty of room to sleep eight.

You will be greeted by the sounds of the waves crashing on the pristine Alabama coast line just 500 feet from your large partially covered deck. The serene two minute walk to the uncrowded public access beach is easy on the level paved Bernard Court East. Some extra advantages to the home's location are: bay views to the north, a quiet neighborhood where it is easy to relax, and a professionally manicured lawn around the home which is perfect for lawn games or picnics.

Inside, the two story home lays out with the living room, dining area, and kitchen all sharing most of the main floor with access to the front partially covered deck and the screened porch, which sits on the north side of the home. The screened porch will be your haven for relaxing in the evenings with your favorite drink while watching the sun melt into Mobile Bay.

Recent renovations have been made to the home April 2018! These renovations include: new paint inside the entire home, a completely remodeled kitchen, new dining and living room furniture, wood floors throughout the first story and new carpet on the stairs!

The main floor also includes two queen bedrooms that share a common full bathroom. The full sized washer and dryer are also located on the first floor next to the kitchen.

Upstairs you will find two large guest bedrooms featuring queen beds and sharing a common full bathroom. The east facing bedroom features a spacious private balcony with spectacular views of Mobile Bay to the north and limited views of the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

Come see why Footprints in the Sand is one of the best values on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time staying at this house. While everything worked and is good condition, the house has some wear. The house was clean and inviting. The kitchen had just about everything we needed.



We arrived after dark and some trouble locating the lock box for the key. There are a few lock boxes that have been replaced but not removed which added to the confusion.



Overall, we had a good time since the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful was expected considering the time of year we booked.

Footprints in the Sand was everything we needed for a Great stay in Fort Morgan!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Footprints in the Sand. Spacious, clean and inviting. Just a short walk to the beach to spend your day and nights on the screened in porch. A fully equipped kitchen so you can grab some groceries and spend more time on the beach and less going to eat out. Can't wait to start planning our next stay.

Nice but just a few flaws that could have made it much better.

  • 3 of 5

The negatives first: the tv reception was not very good. Signal kept going in and out with perfectly clear skies, the mattresses in the beds had a cover which made them very noisy and the door would not lock. Thank goodness it is a very nice area and a family like atmosphere around so I wasn’t that worried about someone getting into the house while we were gone. Excellent area, nice house, and very friendly family like atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Hello Brennon, thank you for the review. Unfortunately, the Fort Morgan area does not have the best reception. This is an ongoing battle for us and we have worked with several different companies to try to find the best service. We use mattress covers as a sanitary measure in our vacation rentals to keep the mattress clean and to prevent the spread of bed bugs. We were not aware of any issues with the locks, next time please give us a call with any issues so that we can repair them for you during your stay. Thank you for letting Harris Properties help you find your perfect spot in the sand.

Nearest Beach

Footprints in the Sand is just 500 feet from beach

Footprints in the Sand is in the wonderful Fort Morgan area of Gulf Shores, Alabama. If you are unfamiliar with Fort Morgan you are in for a real treat. This area is less developed than most resort areas which allows you for a more relaxed beach vacation experience. The public access beach is just a short (500 feet) walk down Bernard Court East, a low traffic neighborhood road.
