About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bath, Gulf view; a short walk to warm water and sugar white sand

Welcome to 'Southern Attitude'. It is located at 6195 Sawgrass Drive, Gulf Shores, 36542. There are no hidden fees for tax and linen service; the rental fee includes everything! Southern Attitude (with its picturesque gulf views) is a very easy stroll to the white sandy beaches and beautiful waters Gulf Shores is famous for, but distant enough from the busy beaches of the downtown area to enable you to enjoy seclusion and peace. This house was built to be a restful beachfront retreat; it has been loved and enjoyed by all who have vacationed here and we know after your stay, you will agree!

Our house is located in beautiful, tranquil Fort Morgan, 6 miles from the actual historic Fort Morgan and minutes from downtown Gulf Shores. We are 20 minutes west of downtown Gulf Shores, convenient to all restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, movie theaters, zoo, amusement areas and water park. For golfers in the group, it is minutes away from the world famous Kiva Dunes Golf Club, a winner of numerous Golf Digest awards, as well as several golf courses conveniently located nearby. For days you would enjoy pampering, The Spa at The Beach Club (just minutes away) offers the best in services for mind and body.

Southern Attitude is richly decorated and furnished to meet your needs for a comfortable, relaxing, fun beach vacation. This beautiful 2 story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath house boasts two decks in the front of the house; French doors lead from the master (King) and 2nd bedroom (Queen) and offer spectacular views of the Gulf. This screened-in 2nd story front balcony is furnished with comfortable chaise lounges, Adirondack and rocking chairs, perfect for relaxing while watching and listening to the waves hitting the shore during the day or viewing the incredible star-lit sky at night.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for an easy vacation, including dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerator with ice maker, all cookware, flatware, utensils, dining sets, small appliances and full pantry space. If grilling outside is your pleasure, there is a charcoal grill available to you as well.

The dining area has a table large enough to seat 8 comfortably, with seating for 4 at the breakfast bar. The house is equipped with free Wi-Fi, as well as a flat screen TV, DVD/CD player in the living area. These rooms offer a beautiful gulf view and walk-out front porch, furnished with southern style rocking chairs.

The back porch is screened in, furnished with table and chairs. On the beach/car-port level, you will find an enclosed outdoor shower with a changing area. There is a comfortable porch swing for spending time relaxing under the house, listening to the waves; a perfect place for children to play on rainy days! For making your stay easy and more enjoyable, the storage area on this level has a wonderful selection of sand toys, umbrellas and chairs, coolers, easy pop-up canopy, as well as two carts to transport everything you need to the beach. In addition, there are two community pools and tennis courts just minutes away, within walking distance. The only thing missing is you!

Our beaches and scenery are magnificent, the golf is spectacular and the restaurants are outstanding. There is truly an activity for every member of the family. Southern Attitude isn't just the name of our house, it truly reflects the good nature, beauty and hospitality that IS the South!

About Melanie and Jerry Johnson

We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1979 and have never enjoyed a more beautiful beach or encountered more genuinely nice people!

Melanie and Jerry Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Melanie and Jerry Johnson chose Morgantown

Southern Attitude has all you need for a fun, relaxing, worry-free vacation! We have all the beach and house essentials needed to allow you to simply come, change into your bathing suit and play! White sandy beaches, piercing blue skies, peace, serenity, fun and sun! Come see for yourself!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful location in a private community that offers two pools and tennis court (all walking distance from the house) as amenities as well as gulf views and access, all within steps of the most beautiful white sandy beach. Our home offers a less crowded beach than Gulf Shores, but is close enough to travel to town (20 minute drive) for attractions, souvenir shopping, activities. In the Fall, the Blue Angels can be seen air shows!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

From the very first contact I knew this was going to be a great experience. The owners were very responsive and caring. The home was beautiful and very clean. We love the Fort Morgan area and the Southern Attitude has gone right to the very top of our list. You can truly believe the 5 star reviews. They are well deserved!

Search No Further !!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our second-time stay at Southern Attitude and, once again, are perfectly delighted with everything this bright and roomy beach house has to offer. We cannot say enough about how lovely, clean, and comfortable it is, from the well-stocked kitchen and cozy beds to the vast array of beach provisions right at our fingertips! We LOVE the location as well; it’s just a short walk to the beautiful, white, sandy beach… yet back far enough from the water to give us the quiet privacy that we crave on vacation. If you are vacillating at all as to which beach house to stay, search no further! Southern Attitude is THE PERFECT choice!

You won't find a better value!

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at Southern Attitude. The fact that we chose to return a second time should tell you all that you need to know. The house has EVERYTHING that you need for a memorable stay at the beach. Fort Morgan is our favorite place to stay, away from the commercialism of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

The Johnsons are wonderful people to deal with, and we look forward to returning in the years to come.

Great house, property is exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with on the reservation and correspondence before and during the stay. The house is very clean and spacious. Our two families with children had plenty of room. The house sits within short distance to both the pool and beach. We will definitely stay again in the future!

Perfect Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything that we needed. We had 6 adults and 3 kids under the age of 4 and there were plenty of beach toys, umbrellas, floats, chairs and 2 wagons. The house is a very short walk to the beach and the pool. The balconies was a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee. You will love this beach house!
