About the area

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.

“Pet friendly, close to the beach and very clean!”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2016

Great house, pet friendly and the owner (Kim) was great to work with. We can't wait to go back. I highly recommend this house and beach-n-bay rentals properties for your next vacation!

Owner's reply: Thank you Alisha! You came right before I made some repairs to the front door and entrance flooring. I hope to see you again soon! You are welcome to call me any time! Kim

“Family vacation”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2015

Our second year here...large enough to accommodate our family as well as dog friendly. Actually just a short walk to the beach which is not crowded. Very homey.

Owner's reply: Hello Hennigan Family, You are always welcome here! Thank you for the return visit and I hope to see you again! Kim

“Great vacation rental!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2015

We really enjoyed our time at Reel-em-inn. The 3 adult couples loved the king sized beds and the 2 little boys had plenty of room in their shared queen bed. The house was very clean and had enough kitchenware to make fixing meals easy. The walk to the beach was easy and quick. The outdoor shower was very helpful, as was the hose, to rinse off any sand brought back from your beach time. The quiet neighborhood made for a pleasant time on the decks. Thank you Kim for sharing your beach rental with our family!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to send a review. You and your family are welcome anytime! You were a delight to work with and I am sorry I missed the chance to meet you and your family. I look forward to hearing from you again! Kim

“Best Beach we've found”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

My wife and I really enjoy our time not the crowds and hussel, so this place couldn't have been a better fit. All the kids had a bedroom and bath. Close enough to Orange Beach to go and spend some time but, definitely didn't have to listen to I want to go back. Sassy Bass store had everything you needed on the island and I didn't the prices were bad. Kimberley even came over sat and told everything worth doing (very experience and knows the area). Great time, family of five will be back. Clean and well furnished house. Sincerely the Wrights

“Lucky Us!!!!”

Reviewed 13 Jan 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.

“Phoenix West 2”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2014

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 beach vacation 2014”

Reviewed 7 Jul 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!!

“Perfect Beach Getaway!”

Reviewed 4 Jun 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! Thanks, Kim
