About Jo Gay

We live and work in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area in property management. We are from Alabama, and have been in this area for the last fifteen years. We have always loved the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast beaches, and when we were able to make a move we relocated to this area from Troy, AL. We have owned several properties in the area, but Fort Morgan seems to be our favorite! We love the quite private beaches away from the crowds, but close enough to enjoy activities when we want. We enjoy the house with our kids and Grandkids, but want others to enjoy it as well. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

Why Jo Gay chose Alabama

We love the quite beaches in Ft Morgan, and the gorgeous bay sunsets. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the deck or beach and watching the Dolphins swim by, or the Pelicans fishing or playing in the surf. So relaxing! We are close enough to several good restaurants, if we choose to go out, and other activities are just a 15 to 20 minute drive to Gulf Shores or Orange Beach.

What makes this house unique

Light airy open floor plan...living/dining/kitchen combo. Extra Den for kids or good when two ballgames are playing! Tile floor through out, TVs in every room, convenient laundry area. Two very large porches, with beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico or Mobile Bay!!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We pretty much loved our trip to Fort Morgan! The House was GREAT, definitely one of the best if you want a great house with a private beach away from the hustle of Gulf Shores (which we did!) It is a bit of a drive into Gulf Shores, but having our own beach was worth it to us. The house really is right on the beach, which made my husband and father-in-law happy that they could still enjoy the beach from the air conditioning :)

There was enough room for 6 "kids" aged 16-21 and my husband and father-in-law. The kids liked having their own spaces. Although one set of boys used an air mattress instead of the very uncomfortable red pullout couch. The bench seat on one side of the table helped us all eat together at the table (although if we had one more, someone would have been kicked to the bar) But the openness of the kitchen, dining room and living room we were all together regardless.

The house is well stocked with everything a family would need from a crock pot to bottle openers. Although the side by side frig is not made for a week worth of food for our whole crew and left overs, so we did have to spend some time running into town for supplies.

Jo was great in offering assistance when we needed it and we could tell that she really wanted our trip to be successful.

One thing the house does need it a 'safety' ring and rope (Tropical Storm Cindy and not listened to the water restrictions caused a neighbor to become distressed and unable to get back to land, and in need of assistance-not that we would have thought of it, but after the fact we wished one was available) I honestly think all the houses in Fort Morgan should have one, with no "public" display of water restrictions like Gulf Shores and no life guards, it is neighbor watching out for neighbor. Normally the waves are perfect, but accidents do happen. When they do the Fort Morgan First Responders are Great!

Definitely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location! The house was so clean and had everything we could have needed. Was my family's introduction to beach culture and no one came away disappointed. Would definitely stay at All Decked Out again!

Wonderful beach home

  • 4 of 5

We found the kitchen well stocked with anything your family happened to need. We brought a crock pot because that is not usually something you find in a rental but there was one already there! Loved the Kitchen Dining and Living area, room for everyone. Great TV's and all the stations you could want. My only negative is the sleeper sofa in the little "den area" is very uncomfortable. Maybe ok for small kids but not for adults. Loved the outside shower and the privacy of the beach area.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We did not have perfect weather for our stay, but we did have the perfect beach house! This beach house has a keyless entry, so no need to go pick up a key! This beach house was clean and is beautifully decorated! Looks just like the pictures! It was very well stocked with all the pots/pans, dishes, utensils, and bath cloths/towels we needed! The layout was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 2 children. All the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of TV's for everyone! We enjoyed sitting out on the large deck and were only a few steps away from the beach, which was very convenient since we had a toddler with us. The men really enjoyed the outdoor shower! We ate most of our meals at the beach house, but did enjoy the awesome food and service at Sassy Bass, which is nearby. We had a minor issue and the owner was prompt in returning our call and helping us to solve it. The only negatives were the red sleeper sofa is not fit for sleeping on (you can feel the springs in your back), we only had one dish cloth and one dish towel in the kitchen, and had problems with the grill (the front leg is not sturdy and it will fall over without support). The positives FAR outweigh the (only 3 ) negatives though! We will definitely use All Decked Out again and will highly recommend it to our friends and other family members!

Peaceful beach experience despite the children we brought

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, comfortable, and attractive. The position on the beach is ideal. We didn't have to pack up and leave every time a young child had to potty. This makes for a better beach experience with little ones. This home was well equipped for them. We only had to put a vase or two up high out of their reach and all was well. We hope to return!

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

The location and house were wonderful. Beds were comfy and house had a great layout. Walk to the beach was great. Just wish there was a covered porch, awning or umbrellas to really be able to enjoy the large deck. Great stay otherwise!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and our beautiful beaches,. We do have a great area underneath that is perfect for hanging out, without being in the direct sun. It is almost impossible to keep an umbrella for the deck as there is not someone there at all times to remove it when our frequent thunder storms pop up.

Our house 'Decked Out' is located on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Our area is mostly single family homes or duplexes giving our guest more private, less crowded beaches. There are nearby restaurants, golf and boating, or you can drive into Gulf Shores for water parks, more restaurants, miniature golf, shopping, and movie theaters. But, you may just want to stay on the beach and enjoy our little bit of quite secluded paradise!!
