Description of the Gulf Shores vacation home rental
Relax in this beautiful new home with views of the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay from the front deck and the back deck. It is only 720 feet to the sugary white beaches of Gulf Shores with a view of the lighthouse and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy the sight of the cruise ships leaving weekly as they pass through Mobile Bay into the Gulf.
Area Information
This home is located two miles from the westernmost tip of Fort Morgan. Fort Morgan is a historical site where fought during the Civil War. The ferry departs from Fort Morgan and arrives in Fort Gaines (Dauphin Island), daily.

The marina is located 1/2 mile from the home. A state owned public launch is located at the Fort, along with a wonderful fishing and crabbing pier.

Two restaurants are located within five miles of the home, yet the area is residential. The landscape is not busy with condominiums. Only one set can be seen in the far distance from the back deck.

The beach offers it own set of activities. This area is not over populated and you will never have problems getting your own little section of the beach. Surf fishing is very popular, along with shelling. A walk along the beach almost always proves popular as shells are easy to pick up. Keep your eyes open for dolphins, as they are a common site playing up and down the beach.

There are charter boats at the marina, along with a dolphin cruise. Bicycling, walking and jogging are also popular activities.

This home is located 20 miles down the peninsula. At the beginning of the peninsula is the heart of Gulf Shores with grocery stores and department stores including Target and Wal-mart. The Tanger Outlet Center is 30 minutes from the home. The hang-outs for the younger crowds are approximately 25 minutes away.

Lucky Us!!!!

January 13, 2015

How lucky are we to have found such a wonderful beach house to vacation at. Everything was so warm and welcoming. The owners have thought of everything that we could have possibly needed for our stay right down to the dog bed in front of the fire place. We felt very welcomed and at home. The view was great, we loved watching the dolphins swim by and the pelicans dive in the water. We hope to get a chance to return for a visit. You won't be disappointed if you visit too.

We had a wonderful time at Phoenix West 2. All decorations in each room were beautiful and luxurious! The pools and slide were fun for our children. The staff was friendly and helpful. Prices were affordable and enjoyed getting an extra night for half off.

Family Vacation

Home was comfortable and large enough to give everyone their own space. We enjoyed hanging out in space under house...TV and hammock. The beach was a relatively short walk and very clean. We had a great vacation!

family beach vacation 2014

July 7, 2014

My husband, two daughters and boyfriends, all spent our first time at Fort Morgan beach. We ended up at Fort Morgan because we wanted to take our dogs with us. We had a great time and we loved our stay at Fort Morgan and at the house we rented. Everything was great. The walk from the house was so close to the beach and that was perfect too. The family friendly beach was great and we Loved watching dolphins daily. We plan to take another family trip to Fort Morgan again in the near future. Great Family vacation on the beach and the beach house!!

Owner's reply:

Perfect Beach Getaway!

June 4, 2014

We were extremely pleased with the location and cleanliness of this house. It was our first time to visit Fort Morgan. Our code to unlock the house wasn't working when we arrived. It was less than ten minutes and they had someone there to help us get in. Very friendly and informative maintenance man that gave us good suggestions on dining and entertainment since we didn't know the area. Everyone (6 adults, 2 children) said they had a blast and loved the house, as well. It took 2 minutes to walk to the beach. The beach in this area was not too busy. You could see way down the beach where they have a highrise and condos and it was packed. Would definitely book again!

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed it! Come back any time! Sorry about the lockbox. The salt air is rough on everything!

This was the first time we have rented a house to stay in. We rented because it was pet friendly. Transaction was smooth and Kim was very helpful and informative. When we first got to the house we were worried because it was so far out of Gulf Shores. 18 miles from Walmart, so get your groceries before going to the house. There is a small grocery and pizza shop close by as well as a fabulous bar/grill that serves awesome food. The house was very nice, with everything you would need. It was clean, comfortable and very inviting. The bay view is beautiful from the huge front porch. It was quiet and peaceful and very relaxing. One con for my 14 year old was the weak cell signal and WiFi kept going out. We ended up enjoying the few days "off the grid" though. I wasnt really concerned as there are plenty of neighbors and condos down the street. We will most definitely look forward to staying here again and/or renting from Vacation Rentals again.

Owner's reply:

thank you Ms. Shelia. i am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Bay-cation. the location is off the beaten path but truly relaxing. i have been using a Mifi at bay-cation (through Verizon) so internet can sometimes be spotty. I have placed an order with the local phone company to install a phone line and wifi. I expect the installation soon. This should handle the spotty internet and also place a phone in the home.

Please call me any time!

We have spent several days in this cottage. It is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our time walking on the beach. The realty agent is very courteous and considerate. I definitely will come again.

Kimberly Tait

Owner's reply:

Tyrone, you and your family are a delight to work with. Please call me anytime. You were there during our 'almost storm'. I am so glad you chose to stay. I kept my son's 4WD pick up in case we had problems but fortunately, we did not need it.
See you again soon!

Wonderful Vacation at Beach Breeze!

July 17, 2012

My family and I had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores staying at Beach Breeze! The house is beautiful and it was great sitting on the deck listening to the waves! The neighbors are very friendly and informative. We were able to see a turtle nest on the beach, saw fireworks almost every night, and enjoy the white sands and blue water in the gulf. Even being peak summer the beach was not crowded which we loved. You can leave your umbrellas and chairs on the beach all week with no fear of people running off with things. While we were in Gulf Shores the guys enjoyed a deep sea fishing trip, the ladies enjoyed shopping at the souvenir shops as well as some of the local boutiques, and as a family we visited the Gulf Shores Zoo where my one year old daughter and I were able to play hands on with 4 baby lemurs! This is definitely somewhere you want to stay!! We look forward to staying at Beach Breeze again soon!!
