The Fort Morgan Peninsula offers visitors a peaceful, relaxing escape. Fort Morgan is surrounded by water, with the Mobile Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other – the most beautiful natural beaches in the area. Once you have visited, you will want to come back again and again!!
Our house has lots of natural light throughout. The first floor has an open floor plan that offers a great place to gather for lots of fun and activities!

The fully furnished kitchen is open with an island that allows for guest to have a place to sit and talk while cooking.

You can also walk down our steps leading you to the beach. Take a walk down the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Our un-crowded and unspoiled beach is natural. It is not groomed, and you can happily hunt for driftwood, shells, sea glass and other treasures. Or maybe some evening crabbing! You may see dolphins swimming in the surf, brown pelicans flying in formation or blue herons and seagulls right on the beach in front of the house. Relax, unwind, listen to the surf, soak up the sun, play in the waves, enjoy shore fishing, watch the sunrise and set, and star gaze at night. You will not be bored.

When you return to the house there is a shower on the steps for your convenience to rinse off.
From the main floor follow the stairs to the second floor where you will find four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and the laundry area.

About Shae Murders
We are a busy family from New Orleans who love to escape the city and heading to the beach, especially the GulfShores/Fort Morgan area. We enjoy entertaining and spending time with our family and friends.
Shae Murders purchased this House in 2014
Why Shae Murders chose Fort Morgan
We have always enjoyed traveling to this area. It is a quick trip for us over from New Orleans and it offers a little peace and quiet away from the city. The beach is never crowded and it gives us a sense of privacy. Our favorite times at our home are our morning coffee on the back deck watching the pelicans and dolphins and relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening watching the sunset.
What makes this House unique
There are so many things about our home that we enjoy. One would be the large deck with direct access to the beach which was the first thing that we feel in love with when we first saw our home. Having the pool to cool off in was also an added bonus. But, I think the large gathering room/kitchen on the first floor over looking the beach and ocean through the wall of windows is our absolute favorite area because we all end up hanging out, sharing laughter, good food and good times.

Directly on the beach.
Just had our yearly family vacation here. The home was beautiful, well furnished, comfortable beds, very clean and right on the beach. Convenient location. The owner was wonderful to work with; very helpful. Would recommend this home to anyone considering staying in Fort Morgan area.
Excellent place to spend time on the beach
We loved everything about this place
Clean, spacious, perfect location and owners.
We arrived to a clean, spacious home that was exactly as pictured online. The home was right on the beach and the pool was the perfect size for the 9 kids we had with us to splash and play in (not all at once).
The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and there was a charcoal grill for grilling. The dining area sat all 16 of us and we loved that we could eat meals together. Bathrooms were perfect size as well as the bedrooms. There is a washer and dryer on the second floor that made laundry really easy to keep up on.
The house was far enough away from all of the bustle without being too far. The air conditioning worked great and the sound of the waves inside was amazing!
Ken and Shae were excellent hosts. They keep tons of beach chairs and toys for the kiddos in the shed for everyone to use.
I would recommend this home to everyone!
