Sunset Hideaway is a professionally decorated luxurious 5 bedroom GULF-FRONT (directly on the beach) home/duplex with pool right on Fort Morgan white sugar sand beach. The pool is right at the deck and the beach is only a few steps away: as you open the curtains, the sounds, smell and breath taking views of the ocean take over your senses. This home is so close to the water you can watch your children playing on the beach and the dolphins cruising in the ocean without leaving the deck!! Turning off completely is not possible sometimes, bearing that in mind we offer our guests wireless high speed internet.

Vacation should be stress free, a great formula for that is having the kids taken care of. You will find at Sunset children friendly plates and cups, FULL SIZE CRIB, pack-n-play, high chair, security gate, bed rail, beach toys, board games, video and DVD library. For the older kids we also provide a XBOX.

This 2700 square foot OCEANFRONT house offers plenty of room for large groups. You will love cooking and having meals with your family and friends; we provide a 12 foot antique table (the longest table you have ever seen outside a French castle!) that seats 14 people! Everyone can enjoy meals together at the delightful 10 foot ceiling living/dining area. The kitchen is fully accessorized with upscale furnishings and stocked with all the extras to spoil you! However, to make cooking easier you will also find at Sunset a charcoal grill.

Sleep has never been this sound. The master bedroom custom window treatment has black-out, in fact, all window treatments and bed spreads are custom-made. There are five bedrooms in total: two on the first level, and three on the second level. Two of the bunk bed bedrooms are perfect to camp out the kids while the adults enjoy piece and quiet . You will find TVs in all bedrooms, including a 50' LCD TV in the living room. We also have brand new 100% cotton bath towels for your enjoyment.

The memories of laughter, the sounds of joy and unique moments spent together with family and friends will be forever part of your unforgettable stay at Sunset!

Treat yourself to this incomparable Gulf Front home. You won’t regret it.

About Carla Kapeskas

My husband and I looked for a while for a place on the beach where we could spend a relaxing time with our children. When we first visited Fort Morgan we knew we had found the place! Fort Morgan is a low density area which is part of Gulf Shores. It is secluded and private and nature is gorgeous here. I hope your family enjoys it as much and mine does!

Carla Kapeskas purchased this house in 2005

Why Carla Kapeskas chose Gulf Shores

This property caught our attention because of its proximity to the water (only 40 yards from the water). Additionally it is large and comfortable. You can relax on the deck and watch the children play at the beach.

It is fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13, 8 adults and 5 kids ranging from 2 to 10, had a perfect vacation in this home! We loved that the living area, kitchen and dining area were all open to each other so we could all be together. The dining room table is amazing and the kitchen is very well stocked. There wasn't anything else we could have asked for. There is plenty of room for everyone to have a little space to themselves if needed too. The house literally sits right on the beach so we spent tons of time playing in the water and the sand. Don't take any sand toys - we didn't even see the bottom of the totes they supply so many! And the pool was perfect for the kids when they needed a change. We bought the bulk of our groceries at Walmart in Gulf Shores, about 18 minutes away, before checking in but "Sassy Bass" just right down the road had everything else that we forgot or needed to replace. There is also a liquor store and a couple places to eat very close. There are numerous things to do with in a 15-60 minute drive. We played golf, went on a dolphin cruise, chartered a deep sea fishing trip and even went horse back riding. The owner was excellent to work with and was very professional. We felt extremely comfortable with the entire process. If you are thinking about renting this vacation home - do it! We would love to go back some day! Thanks for sharing your home with us and making our vacation perfect!

Great Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several houses in Gulf Shores but this was by far the nicest house we have been in! The view and location are perfect for a quiet week of relaxation. The house has plenty of room and privacy so everyone can enjoy there time. When we had small issues, the owners immediately took care or them and the week went on without any hitches. We cannot wait to go back!

Our family of 6 adults and 5 children had a great time at Sunset Hideaway.

  • 4 of 5

Sunset Hideaway was just as advertised. Plenty of privacy and the beach was great! House was clean and well stocked with all the essentials and plenty of good restaurants within 30 minutes drive. The jellyfish were a problem for a few days of our stay so we used the pool a lot. Neighbors were great and we had a lot of great conversations. Had a problem with the pool getting cloudy because of all the use but a call to Carla and the pool guy was there within 30 minutes and fixed it right away. We would definitely recommend this property!

Large, clean, nice house right on huge beach

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best thing about this house was the beach. The house is right on the beach and the beach was large. Also, the beach was very private. The area is residential--no hotels--and so there was lots of open space for the kids. The beach was also sandy--no rocks.

We also liked the location of the house. As referenced above, it is a residential area and so quiet and private. That said, if you are looking for a "party" environment, the house is not really close to any bars/restaurants. The nearest bar/restaurant was about 5 minutes away.

The house was clean and well-maintained. It is also large with plenty of space.

In terms of any "negatives," the only two I would reference are (a) it is a duplex and so you have neighbors sharing the deck and the pool. That said, we had no issues whatsoever and didn't feel like we couldn't use the outdoor space. Also, the other duplex had a screened in porch which provided some additional privacy; and (b) the pool is best characterized as a plunge pool. You cannot swim in it.

Overall, we had a great stay at this house and would not hesitate to recommend it.

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well stocked. The kitchen had appliances that I have never seen in a rental before (like a waffle maker!). There were plenty of dishes and some plastic ones that were nice to give to the younger children to use. The house is spacious for a larger family. The house was very clean upon arrival. I was also surprised at the amount of towels we were given, we never ran out!! The best part is the beach right out the back door!
