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 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. We've added 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 a cart 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!

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. The house was very clean and every detail was thought out from the kitchen fully stocked with all the utensils/appliances you could need to all of the beach gear. We were traveling with another family and the house was spacious with plenty of room for us to not feel we were on top of each other. With such a short walk to the pools and the beach is was perfect for us to be able to go back and forth to accommodate our babies nap times.

Private and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable, relaxing time at Southern Attitude. The home was very well kept and the children enjoyed all the water toys and carts to carry them. The outside shower was great too for washing off all the sand.

This is a great place! All of their bases are well covered.

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised at how well stocked this place was with beach gear and tools to get all the gear to and from the beach! The owners have really done their homework and made it easy / no brainer to get everything right in the relaxation department with little to no fuss. Just load up the push carts with the beach chairs, gear, cooler, etc. and roll it down the beach access points.

The views from this gem are awesome too. It is centrally located between the beach, pools & tennis courts. The rooms are spacious and inviting, as are the common areas in the home. The upstairs porch offers 2 rooms a private, screened in area with plenty of seating, a screened in porch in the back of the house and wonderful rocking chairs on the downstairs front porch. Lounging on the porches in the mornings and evenings is magical with the sound of the ocean and the beach air.

It seems the owners thought of everything from the ground up, including a wonderful outdoor shower on the ground level to wash off the sand / sea from head to toe. There are little touches, like sea shell collections on the ground level and beach memorabilia that make this place feel special from the moment you arrive.

I will definitely be back if the owners will have me!!!

Amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home for a week with some friends and our kids. We had an amazing time. The beach was just a short walk and very family friendly. The beach was never crowded.

The wagons supplied to carry the gear to the beach was awesome. We had enough beach chairs and toys for everyone.

Shopping is a short 20 minute trek into town and the Superwalmart helped us stock our groceries for the week. There are several convenience stores nearby to pick up odds and ends.

Super cute tourist shops within 30 minutes so we could pick up our souvenirs.

We were very sad to leave and can't wait to be back!

The Morgan’s Stay at ‘Southern Attitude’… WOW!

  • 5 of 5

‘Southern Attitude’ was the PERFECT home away from home for us! It was bright, neat, beautifully decorated, and very clean. It had just about everything we needed for our two week stay. It was extremely comfortable and spacious, providing plenty of room for us and our company. We were blessed with warm weather almost every day, which was a far cry from our normal northern Wisconsin February temps.

We really enjoyed the decks, upstairs and down. Our daughter in particular loved the upstairs screened-in porch, where she could sit in "her spot" in the morning, sip coffee, and watch the sun rise. We loved the sound of the ocean in the evenings most of all, especially from our beautiful master bedroom. We are not sure we would have wanted to be right on the beach because of the traffic, and the location of ‘Southern Attitude’ was perfect for enjoying the ocean views and sounds without all of the people activity.

We spent a lot of time on the beach, soaking up the sun, searching for shells, and trying our luck at fishing. The beach chairs and other amenities that were provided were great. The carts were a very nice touch and really made it easy to haul all our gear back and forth to the beach, much to the envy of the other beach-dwellers!

We were surprised that Fort Morgan does not appear to promote recycling. Perhaps that is something that the homeowners associations can work towards implementing in the future.

Melanie was very gracious about a couple of minor “normal wear and tear” problems that occurred when we were there, and thanked us for letting her know about them. We promptly received our full deposit back in the mail a few days after returning home.

Overall, the house, location, and amenities were all top notch. We absolutely loved EVERYTHING about the experience and highly recommend it to anyone that would like a relaxing getaway!
