About The Owner

We have been married for 18 wonderful years!! I am very blessed to have married my best friend! We enjoy lots of outdoor activities and staying active! When Ron isn't golfing and I'm not playing tennis...you will find us at the beach!!! We have 3 rescue 'fur babies' that go everywhere we do! I wouldn't want to vacation without them and that's why we offer a pet friendly vacation home!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

We fell in love with this house and everything it has to offer! It has the most beautiful, panoramic, unobstructed views of the sandy white beach and the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico! It is very spacious and I love offering the option to rent both sides out as one house for large families or groups at an affordable rate!!

What makes this cottage unique

Rent one side or two...for a million dollar view...it's up to you!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this location, Dunewalk East last year and Dunewalk West this year. We love the location on Fort Morgan which is isolated enough to make it seem as though we have our own personal slice of beach but also a short drive from places to dine out or pick up meals. We especially like being just a short walk directly to the beach. The new building cuts down on the gulf view but the view is still very nice from the deck. Dana was exceptionally responsive any time we had a question. We know when we rent this unit, any problems will be resolved almost immediately. That is very comforting and worth a great deal. We travel with our two retired racing Greyhounds and the owners make it easy to stay in a beachfront location with our Greyhounds. The kitchen has enough basic supplies but only the basics. We have been coming to Gulf Shores for several years and are very happy with our experiences here.

Lacking amenities

  • 2 of 5

First of all, this was billed as "ocean view"......there was a three story house under construction directly between us and the ocean......secondly, there was no extra toilet paper, garbage bags, dish washer detergent, paper towels......there were no coffee filters......no salt & pepper.........these are basic amenities that we are used to finding in other VRBO rental properties.........it also wasn't kept up well (one closet door was literally falling off it's hinges and the others were difficult to open and close)........nor was it properly clean (I even found a used bandaid in one of the showers)........one more thing, there were only three wine glasses and our reservation stated clearly that we were four people........that's all I can remember right now......needless to say, I wouldn't recommend staying in this property.....

Ft Morgan is a great place to visit

  • 3 of 5

This is our second time at this property and we really enjoy being able to take our dogs. We were very disappointed this time because the view of the water has been essentially completely blocked by the construction of a new beach home. To me, that makes the rental cost too high for such a blocked view. The exterior is pretty badly needing to be painted too. Still enjoyed it, but don't go expecting the views on the ad.

Perfect vacation home for a family!

  • 3 of 5

This was the first time to rent a vacation home and not a condo. Definitely one of the best vacations ever. Loved the layout of the home! Perfect for a slightly larger family with enough room for everyone to have their own space. With married children that is a blessing!

Kitchen was adequate for meals in. New appliances were nice. Made use of the outside grill provided, more than once. Dining room table was large and seated everyone. Made for real family moments over meals.

There is a very large, very tall home being built a few yards off the deck and there is another lot being sold in front of that. Was not too much of an issue it was just very unexpected. Should have been told to us when we booked or at least before we went down.

The construction crews didn't arrive until 7am and we are early risers so that was not an issue. Each and every one of them were very polite and respectful as we were walking through their construction site several times a day. Even with that the access to the beach was easy and not very far at all. We did have to watch for nails in the sand and in our swing and deck area.

The beach in the area is beautiful, clean and not crowded at all. Enjoyed watching the wedding on the beach right next door. All in all it was a wonderful family week.

Thanks

Shawn

Great beach, okay house. No longer front row view.

  • 4 of 5

Just traveled there for Labor Day weekend. Had 6 adults and 7 kids (one infant). Unfortunately there is now a house being built right in front of this house that blocks most of the ocean view. Other than that, the house is as described.

Here are the positives:

* Plenty of space for everyone to sleep

* Place was clean and HVAC worked well

* Beach was not crowded at all. We expected this being labor day weekend but we had plenty of beach for ourselves

* The pools were nice and never crowded either

Here are the negatives:

* They are building a brand new house between this duplex and the beach. So the beach view is very obstructed

* The bathrooms felt a little old but worked fine

* The bed spreads were what you'd expect to find at a cheap hotel

Overall we had a good time at the beach and enjoyed the house.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you loved the house and your family had a great time. There is a house being built approx 80 yards in front, but in NO WAY obstructs all the views! The lots are spaced accordingly, so that is not possible. There is still PLENTY of direct gulf view! We are also priced extremely reasonable for a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2nd tier house, with no streets to cross to get to the beach! We are sorry you did not like the summer quilts. I can assure you they are not cheap. We put lightweight quilts on the beds in Spring/Summer because no one wants a heavy comforter on them in the hot, summer months, Thank you for booking with us and we hope to see you again next year!

Beach Duplex E

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. Very clean and comfy. Plenty of room for a family group of 12, plus one pup. The sand toys left by previous guests came in handy and we left a few ourselves. The walk to the beach is through the dunes, which can be a workout, but the distance is short and just as expected. Great views from balcony.

The TV in kids room did not work, but it wasn't a big enough deal to even message owners about.

Kitchen had most of the necessities from home including a crockpot, which came in handy.

The broom was used constantly to sweep up sand, but no dust pan could be found. We substituted the vacuum and had no probs.

Thanks for an awesome home for our vacation.
