About Brenda McDonald

We live in Fairhope, AL. I sell am a licensed Realtor in Alabama and Florida. I sell property in and around the beach area; my husband is a pilot for FedEx. We have a beautiful 5 year old daughter and a large extended family. When we bought 'Dream Big' the year after our daughter was born. She truly was the answer to our prayers and our 'Big Dream' come true.

Brenda McDonald purchased this house in 2005

Why Brenda McDonald chose Alabama

My husband lived in Fort Morgan when he was in high school. His family home was about 2 miles from where our house is now. It was taken out by Hurricane Fredrick in 1979. It was like coming home for him. Also, since I sell real estate in the area it was easy for me to know the exceptional value, wonderful privacy and the tremendous beauty of the Fort Morgan Area.

What makes this house unique

The privacy and the beautiful white sandy beach is just the beginning. The pool is a wonderful bonus. Then you add the wonderful sunsets and just sitting on the deck in the wonderful chairs (my husband built) watching the dolphins and shrimp boats. It truly is 'Paradise' on Pleasure Island - as all the locals call the it.

Very Clean and Cheerful

  • 5 of 5

This house is the first time we (mom, wife, 4 and 1.5year old) have ever stayed in a house and we will NEVER go back to the condo scene. The owners obviously have put countless hours into planning and keeping up this site for a most relaxing and ideal trip for the family. We definitely plan on returning if the house does not become booked out several years in advance. Thank you.

Everything it advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with a new born and a 1 year old, grandma and grandpa. The pool was great for nap time and we all enjoyed the beach and the views. There were a few wicked storms but that just gave us time to explore and glad we did. Thank you for allowing us to stay and you have set the bar high for our future vacations!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was perfect! The house is amazing and the pool was a definite plus!! Not many houses in that area have pools. Beautiful deck with variety of chairs to choose from. You can see the ocean from almost every part of the house! The weather was great, some clouds but for most part, it was sunny! We loved going on the beach at night with flashlights looking for ghost crabs. The only bad thing is our vacation went to fast! My husband had to leave early due to unexpected dog surgery😔. Brenda was so wonderful! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to WI from 5 nights at Dream Big...it was perfect! The home is very spacious and worked great for our family of 6. We loved how we were just steps from the beach which allowed for ample fishing, swimming and beach time! We also enjoyed the pool for a change of pace. We hope to return next year!
