About Kathleen O'Leary

My husband and I fell in love with the Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan area years ago! Our kids have grown up coming to this beach, and now our grandkids will also enjoy this beautiful area of the country ! We live only a few hours away so are able to come quite often. We look forward to building fond memories for you and your family by offering you this comfortable, relaxing atmosphere here in our home and the breathtaking beauty of Ft. Morgan beaches.

Kathleen O'Leary purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathleen O'Leary chose Fort Morgan

Situated in a quiet mature subdivision, Top O'the Dunes offers all the luxury for a gulf vacation. We own other property in the subdivision and believe this home offers a family the perfect vacation. Our desire was to upgrade a property in a style that we would enjoy, be proud of, and believe that others would find the perfect spot for their families and friends.

What makes this house unique

We have been property owners on the Fort Morgan Peninsula for over 20 years. We have incorporated all the 'must haves' with a touch of luxury that will give you a relaxing vacation experience. If you enjoy spacious comfort, spectacular views, and want to feel pampered, this is the place.

Great beach home

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing and just a very short walk to the beach. It was very clean with lots of room for multiple families. The two seperate living areas were convenient to have with all the young kids in the house. The upstairs deck is off the living room and has great views of the ocean. The downstairs patio is very large with a nice little pool for the kids to splash around in or for adults to cool off in. The kitchen had all the amenities and utensils needed to cook every meal in the house. I would highly recommend this house!

Great Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had three families in the house and it was so great. There are three refrigerators so you could stock up for the week and have plenty of space for storage. We were able to cook everything we wanted with the kitchen utensils provided and the patios were prefect for enjoying cocktails in the evening. Bathrooms were so nice and recently remodeled. Would definitely rent this house again!

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great beach rental for multiple families- open spaces, several living areas, bedrooms, and 2 well appointed kitchens. There are also two spacious patio areas to enjoy. The furnishings are lovely and create a relaxing atmosphere to unwind at the end of the day. A short walk to the white sand beach. Owners are awesome; a 5 star property! Would definitely return!

Wonderful Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous and so spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did not have good weather, but because of the house, we were able to still have a great time. We hope to be back next year!

Luxury home with beautiful furnishings

  • 5 of 5

Incredible house with all the necessities and more. Very spacious shared spaces. Lots of storage spaces in the bedrooms. Comfortable beds. Kids loved the pool. Kathy thought of every need, including providing a standalone ice maker on the lower level that was extremely handy!!! We LOVED it and would go back.
