House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)
The Moores have spent all of their lives in Alabama and enjoy accommodating vacationers into the Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area along with Lake Martin. We've been accommodating vacationers now for over 20 years. We own our rental homes so we take care of them and our guests the way they should be. It's all about 'The Golden Rule' you know! We don't allow any management agencies and/or companies to rent out or manage our properties. We do all of this ourselves. This allows us to keep our rates low and to customize and deliver our personal touch to each and every guest! Y'all come see us! :)
Derrik purchased this House in 2002
Why Derrik chose Gulf Shores
GOLF-GOLF-GOLF!! There must be at least 15 golf courses within 30 minutes away and two are within 10 minutes away! The World Famous Kiva Dunes Golf Course (Voted #1 course in Alabama and Jerry Pate developed) is only ONE MILE away! You gotta play Kiva Dunes! BIRD LOVERS: The Alabama Birding Coastal Trail has a stop in Fort Morgan. CIVIL WAR and HISTORY BUFFS: The Mobile Bay Civil War Trail. Fort Morgan State Park. 'Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!' You can almost hear the command of Admiral David Farragut as he led his troops into the battle of Mobile Bay. Today Fort Morgan is a testament to the evolution of American coast defense fortifications from 1834 to World War II. It's a history lesson waiting to be explored. Some regard it as 'one of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World'. Fort Morgan was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 2007 it was listed as 'one of the nation's 10 most endangered battle sites' by the Civil War Preservation Trust in History Under Siege: A Guide to America's Most Endangered Civil War Battlefields. Just 6 miles away! Then take the Mobile Bay Ferry over to see anther Civil War site, Fort Gaines. We think that this part of the Gulf of Mexico is 'the last frontier' in that it has not been commercialized like Panama City, Destin, Pensacola, and even Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to an extent. You really feel like you are on your own private peninsula here! As one member of my family stated when we purchased our first property here, 'Let's move here!'.
What makes this House unique
The Flamingo is in a cul-de-sac in the private beach community of Morgantown. This offers a VERY safe environment for children and the elderly. It is RIGHT NEXT to the pool and is beach side. You get the best of both worlds at the Flamingo, POOL and BEACH! There is a zero-level and ramped entrance into the Flamingo that allows easy access for wheelchairs and those that can't handle steps very well. The Mobile Bay Ferry takes you over to Dauphin Island where you can then visit Fort Gaines, USS Alabama, and all of Mobile, AL. Biloxi, MS (Las Vegas of the South!) is just east of Mobile via I-10. Covered picnic table area under the house along with beach rinse-off shower area. Fort Morgan Museum and Civil War History just a few miles down the peninsula. Very private and family oriented beach community. Perfect environment for stargazers in that there are no city lights around. You can see stars for days! This is one of my personal reasons why I love this location! Fort Morgan Marina is five minutes away and has daily deep sea fishing charters. Come and watch the fleet unload their catch. Tacky Jacks is there too. Great food!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a great time. It was located in the perfect spot. The balcony was so nice for us and our pup.

Very clean and good wheelchair accessibility.
Great communications with the owner Derick. Very clean and AC workerd great. Bathroom was very wheelchair friendly. Great location next to Morgantown subdivision community pool, only wish the pool deck was wheelchair accessible to be able to watch grandkids swim.
Great home-Beautiful Vacation
Derrick was amazing to work with. He was very patient with all my requests. The home was wonderful. The size of the rooms, the short walk to the beach, the atmosphere of the community, right next to the private pool, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Definitely recommend this home!!
Thank you Derrick! My family and precious dog had the best time!
