About Keith Morris


My name is Keith Morris and I am the owner of Flip Flop Repair Shop and Flip Flop Vacations. This was my first vacation rental property and I then started Flip Flop Vacations shortly after.Flip Flop Vacations was started to improve the rental process for my guest and to help some of my real estate clients with their vacation rental properties.

Keith Morris purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Keith Morris chose Elberta

I grew up on the Alabama Gulf Coast and spend most of my summers on Perdido Bay. This place brings back those memories and would love for your family to share the same experience.

What makes this cottage unique

It's a great location for 'different type of vacation'. Lazy summer days of swimming, kayaking, fishing or just laying in a hammock. Set and talk on the swing on the front porch as the sun goes down...

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my long weekend here! The house was spotless when I arrived and every bit as beautiful as the photos suggest. I could've spent days just sitting on the porch, looking out on the bay. There was also a hammock, volleyball/badminton net, and horseshoes for entertainment. The beds were very comfortable too, and I rarely like beds that aren't mine. The master suite was a nice size, but the other bedrooms were a little small considering they had queen size beds. It was a little difficult to maneuver around with limited floor space. But that's o.k. because I imagine most people will be hanging out in the open living room and kitchen area, or outside. Also worth mentioning: I had my dogs, and I really appreciated that veterinarian information (including an emergency contact) was posted right on the refrigerator. What a thoughtful touch!

The house is in a quiet location, but it's just minutes from Pensacola and less than an hour from the white sandy beaches. I would definitely recommend this place!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here! It was quiet, the property is spectacular and the house is even more amazing! We can’t wait to go back when it’s warmer! We loved that we could bring our fur-baby along! He loved being able to run and play and that made it even more enjoyable for us! We will definitely be returning!
