About the area

Historical Fort Morgan is two miles away with Ferry access to go to Mobile or Biloxi and enjoy the casinos. You can have the best of both worlds by having the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Mobile Bay on the other side. Perfect home for a snowbird to enjoy the warm climate and escape the snow. Fishing and crabbing are permitted at the public pier at the Fort. Premier golf courses are located just down the road at Kiva Dunes and the Peninsula. Surfing lessons, parasailing,scuba lessons are available. A family photograph on the beach is available.Reconnect to nature as you hike the Bon Secure National Wildlife Refuge Trails to miles of unspoiled beaches. Step back in time as Civil War-era history comes alive at Fort Morgan, or visit this birder's paradise during migration seasons. Local attractions include The Track with 6 Go Cart Tracks, Bunjee Jump, PUTT PUTT GOLF, and Amusement Rides. Enjoy the ZOO, WATERVILLE, TANGER OUTLET MALL, THE PINNACLE SHOPPING MALL, LULU'S(Jimmy Buffett's sisters restaurant), and one of the top ten bars in the nation-Flor Bama. Catch many concerts, and attractions at the nearby WHARF. You will not want to miss THE SHRIMP FESTIVAL in Oct., THE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL in April, and Mardi Gras in Feb.

“Ecellent Stay at Volunteer Landing”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2016

My wife and I along with our little dog Tucker spent this Thanksgiving at Volunteer Landing and had a wonderful time. Everything was just as advertised and we are eagerly awaiting our next opportunity to return. The only thing which was more outstanding than our time there is the owner Doris whom it was a pleasure to get to know even if was only just through contact by phone. We could go on and on about the entire experience but the best thing we can say is go and find out for yourself how great a getaway from the routine can be. The only thing we can say in the negative was we had to leave and come back home. Peggy & Bryan

“Gulf Shores Beach Vacation”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2016

Was an excellent option for a last minute trip. The owner was very responsive and everything went very smoothly and had a great time. Was a very short walk to the beach which was so beautiful and met very nice families while there all with dogs so that was a huge plus for us. Thanks so much!

It was everything we could have needed or wanted for our first vacation with our 2 little girls. We loved it and hope to be back someday

“Fourth of July vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

The house was perfect for us and our 2 little girls. It was fully stocked from the kitchen, a grill, extra blankets, movies , to a tent and plenty of sand toys for the kids. Very close walk to the beach with kids, the beach was never busy and it was all we had imagined for our first family vacation. The house was comfortable and made you feel very at home. you are a little drive from Gulf Shores but its completely worth being in the peaceful beach environment vs the busy tourist beaches. we were there for the 4th of July and there's plenty close by you don't even need to go into gulf shores and can enjoy fireworks everywhere around you from the house or beach We definitely hope to make it back to Volunteer Landing someday. Thanks for a great place to vacation!

“Great place!”

Reviewed 8 May 2016

Great little place! Very clean and tidy. Beautiful view of the bay and about a 10 min walk to the beach. Everything in working order, comfortable and clean beds. Loved the deck! So nice to relax each morning while looking at the view. Quiet area. Only draw back was wifi going in and out. Would definitely stay again and recommend!

“Relaxing Home Away from Home!”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2016

We had a wonderful visit to "Volunteer Landing"! The rental process was smooth and great communication with the owners. The cute house had everything we needed and super quick access to the beach! Very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and great laundry machines! We enjoyed two very close restaurants that were literally down the road. Had a great time at Fort Morgan and just enjoyed slowing down a bit for a much needed vacation. Loved being able to bring our dog with us and we even visited the dog friendly beach area 5 minutes from the house!

“Perfect Vacation Pad”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2016

Loved Volunteer Landing. We brought our puppy and 4 year old. The place is super pet and kid friendly! We appreciated the strong water pressure, fully stocked kitchen, and close access to the beach. Neighbors were friendly! Beds were comfy. We will definitely be back for another visit soon!

“Was good to see the Gulf again!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2015

Let me say first....the Stiers family that owns the Volunteer Landing Beach cottage were so wonderful, gracious and very easy to work with. The Volunteer Landing was just perfect for both me & my wife. The location is perfect....whether you walk 100 yds to get to the beach or you drive down a ways to see family who is staying close by as well. The Volunteer Landing Beach home is also very dog friendly and the beach cottage is very comfortable, as well as pet friendly. We will most definitely return in the future! We have found our Home Away from Home!
