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

Wonderful Beach Cottage!
Our family of 5 stayed at the Morning Glory in June. It was our "home away from home" for our children's first ocean/beach experience and it was everything we could have hoped for. A great layout, comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated and I love how long this home has been in it's location with the same family! We enjoyed the sun chairs and rockers. Literally just steps away from the ocean. We enjoyed a quiet and simple getaway in Dauphin Island: swimming in the ocean and playing in the sand, morning walks collecting shells, chasing crabs at night with flashlights, visiting the sea lab and bird sanctuary! We highly recommend this home and hope to stay again in the future. Thank you for sharing your beach cottage with our family!
Thank you for your review and it always makes us so happy when families can make beautiful memories like we have at the Morming Glory. It’s what my mom wanted and prayed for. She is gone now, but her great grandchildren, and many other families like yours, are playing on the same beach just like she dreamed it would happen!
The home has a great layout; very open and comfortable. In regards to location, it was quiet, close to the beach, and easy to find. Bedding was comfortable. Home was inviting and I would love to stay there again!
great relaxing family spot, short walk to beach
we enjoyed our visit to Morning Glory so much! The house was beautiful on the inside and had everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and relaxing on the super comfy couch. Beds were very comfortable too. It was a short walk to the beach, even with a 2 year old. We had a great night time fishing trip at the big pier that was across the bridge into Mobile, and a delicious meal at Pelican Reef. My daughter said she wants to come to Dauphin Island always for the beach! So relaxing and nice!
Nice quiet beach
The house was nice for what we were looking for. Short walk to the beach which was lovely and quiet. The kids toys were nice as my kids enjoyed playing with them. The TV/cable worked about 50% of the time and would suddenly go static but we don’t watch much tv so it was alright. There are a few notes throughout the house about certain things being “monitored” and also a warning in the rental agreement that the neighbors are keeping an eye on you. We found this a bit odd. Overall it was a nice family vacation.
Thank you for your feedback! The only thing monitored are items in the owners closet because we have had people break in and steal things. Secondl, the neighbors only let me know if there are tons of people in the house. Unfortunately there are times when people try to add riducouous amounts of people to their vacations, and the house is reserved for 7 people only. I’m am very sorry if this felt weird. Other than this, we hope that it felt like a home away from home. Once again, thank you for your feedback.
Nice, comfortable spot near the beach
All of our group agreed that the pictures for this place don't give it the credit deserved. The place was nice, clean, and comfortable. Owners were very responsive to questions leading up to our stay and arranged for someone to be in contact when they were traveling. Neighborhood was quiet and relaxing and just a short walk to the beach. Wrap-around deck was great for resting and reading during our off time. Kitchen was mostly stocked with what we needed. The main road nearby also has an adjacent paved bike trail that runs the length of the island, so bring (or rent) bikes!
The two primary cons for our group were 1) the lack of some basic items like toilet paper and trash bags that I felt should have been on hand, and 2) the bunk bed with "queen-sized" bottom. It's definitely not for anyone other than children and had to be the squeakiest bed I've ever heard! You could hear someone sitting on it (with the door closed) on the other side of the house. Received a number of complaints from the couple staying in that room about how uncomfortable and seemingly small that bed was. Also had some complaints from the couple in the second bedroom about the sheets being too small for their bed.
...but that said, our overall experience was largely positive and everyone seemed to enjoy the property.
Sorry about the squeaky bed! Did not realize it was making noise and will definitely check on the sheets! Glad you had a good time!
Beach view getaway
Great property just a few houses down from the water on a quiet street.
*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.'
