About Mary Pedeaux

This beach cottage we call 'Morning Glory' has been in our family for about 30 years! It has been a place for us as well as many other families to make special and lasting memories while building strong relationships. For others, it has been an amazing refuge for a much needed get-away. Our mother bought this house after a terrible hurricane and transformed it into a 'home away from home' for her family and for those who just needed a place to go! We sincerely hope and pray that you will have the 'best of the best' times at the Morning Glory!

Mary Pedeaux purchased this house in 1987

Why Mary Pedeaux chose Alabama

We encourage you to choose this property because it is prepared just for you with the greatest of love for the island, and a heartfelt desire for you to enjoy!

Clean home with quiet street and close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

The Morning Glory home was clean upon arrival & well stocked with kitchenware. The beds & furniture were comfy with plenty of room for a larger family to enjoy. The house has rockers on the porch for relaxing in the shade as well. While this home doesn't have an outdoor shower; there are two hoses on the decks for sand removal before entering. Its located very close to an awesomely beautiful uncrowded beach. We enjoyed relaxing, shelling, fishing, and saw dolphins just steps from the home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & the owner was a joy to do business with. While both of these things are beyond control of the owner; we would recommend that renters bring bottled water and plenty of mosquito repellant. The mosquitos were ferocious while we were there. We recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a peaceful vacation on Dauphin Island.

Cozy, near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our first trip to Dauphin Island, a decision to stop off and break up the journey back from staying 2 weeks on the coast in Florida.

The house was ample for the 2 of us. It provides the basics. It is on the main road, but it seemed to be off season and we slept Soundly. That is a plus, there is no on street parking so access to the beach means you have the place almost to yourself.

The nick nacks - why people think they have to leave objects. As guests you have to tip toe around these things. Please reconsider!

Internet is good, basic TV (if you need it) box of toys for kids, but no other left over beach stuff save a few kids boogie boards.

I think one thing that should be brought into the mainstream discussion is the religious artifacts. We were both brought up to think that way, but now we're grown up and realize the human spirit is wonderful enough without the need for fictitious entities.

The owners were responsive to inquiries. Top marks!

If you like beaches this place is for you. Nothing else to do except fish! The local bars & restaurants don't really care about service - where else are you going to go? Exception was the Pirates Pleasure, those guys hustled. Islanders in 2nd. Just google the reviews!

I loved the Ship to Shore store. Great people. Good supplies for a cosy evening meal.

A note about water, instead of adding to empty plastic bottles on the landfill, we boiled the water in our own kettle and that seemed to help with the taste.

We used the free boat ramp at the other end of the island to launch our kayak. Overall this was fun, served it's purpose on our journey back home. Thanks for letting us stay in your home.

So glad we stayed here.

  • 4 of 5

A good house. Very convenient to the beach and it was almost like having our own beach just for the 9-10 houses on Pushmataha Street. Neighbors are a mix of full time residents and rentals. No traffic problems and no neighbor problems. A good trip and glad we stayed here.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. There was plenty of room for the seven of us.

While it's not directly on the beach, we only had to walk about a hundred yards to get there.

We would definitely stay here again. 😃

Very Nice and good location

  • 4 of 5

The house was very accommodating and a good location. We worried about the walk to the beach but that was not a problem. The beach was very nice at that area.The only negatives was not much closet space and the second bathroom didn't have air. We would stay there again.

*There is a MARINE LIFE MUSEEUM that has a little movie, interactive displays, and a gift shop. Great for all including children.

*There is a BIRD SANCTUARY with a small lake. The trail through the bird sanctuary is a boardwalk and leads to the lake. A nice walk or outing for everyone.

*There are WALKING TRAILS throughout the woods that lead to the beach at the Bird Sanctuary.

*There is a Fort with a museum (FORT GAINES). This is a great site to see even if you just visit the outside. It has a great view of the historic LIGHTHOUSE.

*Visit the SEA LAB where students from all over the world study Marine Biology.

*There are PARKS for the children.

*There is a COUNTRY CLUB where you can eat, play GOLF, rent JET SKIS, PLAY TENNIS, or enjoy a public SWIMING POOL right on the beach.

*Going to the BAKERY is an experience in itself. The menu is delightful and the atmosphere is so cozy and sweet. Dine in or take out.

*You can FISH from the many fishing piers on the island, charter a boat, or fish right from the beach steps away from 'Morning Glory.' (fishing license required) Inquire at Ship n Shore, and they will direct you.

*Suggestion: Rent BIKES and travel the whole island! The bike rental offers kiddie carts that attach onto the bikes so that your little ones or pets can travel with you. The bike path is conveniently accessible at the driveway at Morning Glory.

*Suggestion: Rent KAYAKS! They deliver right to the beach for you!

*Great PIZZA and SNOWBALLS at the Rainbow!

*Chevron offers great hot food on the go! Breakfast, Lunch, and Pizza.

*Great hamburgers at the 'Pink Pig.'

*Great Breakfast and Lunch with an incredible view at 'Pirate's Pleasure.'

*A fun restaurant with a view is the 'Islander.'
