About Karen Gable

We are from Cullman AL. Our family consist of 2 daughters, their husbands, 1 son, and 5 beautiful grandchildren.

Karen Gable purchased this house in 2015

Why Karen Gable chose Gulf Shores

We bought Coco Beach (next door) 4 years ago and fell in love with the neighborhood. It is a private community and steps away from the gulf.

What makes this house unique

We now have 3 houses that can be rented together or individually. It is a great spot for weddings and huge reunions .

Our favorite house in Ft. Morgan!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we have rented the Sugar Shack. It is our favorite house in the Ft. Morgan area. It's perfect for beach access! The house still looks and feels brand new! Love the master bedroom shower! We will return soon!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Loved the home and the proximity to the beach! I LOVED that all the rooms have a private bath! The pool was perfect as a break from the beach and to cool off. The only thing that could be changed is the mattress in the master bedroom not the most comfortable to sleep on. However, overall we would 100% return to this place and hope to one day. Our 4 children enjoyed every second of our family vacation. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your time in posting a review. My daughter had stayed in the house not long ago and told me the bed wasn't real comfortable which surprised me since this is our 3rd year to rent it. So I called and had a replacement put in. I hope this mattress holds up better. I guess pillow tops don't do as well as regular. Kent and karen gable.

Great Beach House for large family!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely new beach home in Ft. Morgan with nice new appointments! Plenty of room for the entire family, comfy beds and large family/kitchen room for all to gather for dinner. Beach access nearby with short walk and a family environment - not too crowded, clean and plenty of room for beach-goers. The drive into town was what we expected (20 minutes), and the shared pool was a nice addition! Had a small hiccup with the WIFI, but owner was very responsive and this didn't slow down our fun at the beach. We would love to visit again next year! Thanks Karen!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. The wifi can get a little sideways especially during lots of thunderstorms. Please remember "Sugar Shack" for any more visits to the beautiful Gulf! Karen Gable

Amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home so much. We were two families with kids and it was so nice that the beach was so close to the house. Also loved the outdoor shower to get the kids clean before we came in the house

Owner's Response: The shower under the house it a great added feature. We now have a pool that is right next door to this property and is very kid friendly. Please remember us for any future visits to the beach. Kent and Karen Gable

Wow! Gorgeous Home - Not Just A Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Sugar Shack combines many of the high end luxuries of a well designed primary residence with practicalities of beach side living! Granite countertops throughout. Comfortable couches. Well stocked kitchen. Walk-in master shower. Strategically placed pocket doors to maximize space. Ten foot ceilings downstairs and plenty of ceiling fans throughout help keep house cool. Wall mounted tvs throughout for those not ready to unplug completely. Twin bunk beds were a favorite with our five and six year olds; queen beds and private rooms were a big hit with our nine and eleven year olds. House layout would easily accommodate a family of eight if kids share beds. Or, grandparents plus two couples and two grandkids.

For beach side living, house has enclosed outdoor shower for sand rinse off and easy maintenance floors to make the inevitable sand & water clean up easy. Beautiful deck & outdoor furniture for enjoying the ocean breeze. And an easy walk to beach.

Karen was wonderful to work with. Internet had issues when we arrived, preventing us from accessing local weather forecasts and directions to activities. Karen happened to be in the neighborhood and spent a couple of hours with the Internet company to get everything set again. Kids loved her!

Recommend future renters bring extra paper towels and toilet paper. Grocery store and Walmart are about 20 minute drive east. Dauphin Island Ferry is 10 minute drive west. Be careful of outdoor stairs - very slippery when wet and a bit narrow & steep. Pillow top mattresses rather soft for us, but some folks love them.

Highly recommend and would happily stay again!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review. I also fell in love with your kids. We got pretty acquainted with me talking with the internet folks for a LONG time. But, we have had no other issues with it since. I am sorry to hear about the stairs being steep. They are actually code, but being new, I could see how they might be slippery when wet as most things are. We would love to have you visit again next time you plan on your visit to the coast. Thank you, Kent and Karen Gable
