Description of the Gulf Shores vacation home rental
"Dancing in the Rain" is a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath duplex house located in the Dunes community of the Fort Morgan area in Gulf Shores, AL. If a quieter, family environment is what you are looking for, this area is for you. It's a short drive out Fort Morgan Road, but well worth it for the atmosphere. When you walk into the front door of our vacation home we want you to feel right at home. You'll see a beautiful, tropical, great room area with plenty of comfortable seating. The living room has a queen pull-out sofa, loveseat, large chair with ottoman, and additional chairs for extra seating. You'll also find a large TV, DVD player, VCR, stereo, movies, and books. The dining area has a large table and a bar with seating for up to 12. There's a fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need for those meals you might want to prepare if you decide to stay in. Service for up to 14. This level has the master bedroom with a king bed, TV, and large private bath. You'll also find the half bath and laundry room on this level. The main level deck is just out the back door, complete with plenty of seating and table for the whole group. Here you'll find a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico and the protected community wildlife habitat. Take the staircase up to the second level where you'll find another three bedrooms with queen beds and TVs, and two full baths, There's a balcony a little smaller than the bottom deck with seating to view the beautiful gulf. Take another staircase off this level up to the third level where you will find the fifth bedroom, complete with four twin beds, including a daybed with trundle underneath, TV and DVD player. There's a balcony on this level, as well, just a little smaller than the second level with it's own gorgeous view of the gulf and beach. Once you've taken all the stairs back down to the main level, you'll see another set of stairs that lead down to the door to the parking garage area. There's parking for up to five small vehicles or four large ones. There's a BBQ grill, picnic table, and a hose for washing off sand in this area. The community pool is just a few steps away from the front of the house. The beautiful Fort Morgan beach is a very short walk away, down the pavement and to the boardwalk. This area is such a quaint, family oriented place. Perfect for a quiet family get-away to the beach.

The Dunes subdivision is located in the Fort Morgan area of Gulf Shores. Our house, "Dancing in the Rain", is located on the second tier from the beach, with a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico. Right in the back, between the first two tiers is a huge protected wildlife habitat, where you will see turtles, frogs, and lots of birds. Enjoy nature on the beach. The boardwalk to the beach is just a short walk away. You'll see miles of sparkling, beautiful gulf waters, and white sand that feels like cushion under your feet. You'll feel the breathtaking breeze coming off the ocean waters. So amazing on your face. Rent a chair and umbrella or take your own, and just sit there and view the awesomeness of God's beautiful creation. Take a walk, hunt seashells, take a dip in the ocean, or just soak up the sun. The main thing - RELAX. When you want a different setting, go back to the pool and enjoy a relaxing swim or just lay around in a lounger and read a book or take a nap. -- RELAX.

If history is what you're interested in, Historic Fort Morgan is just one mile down the road. Visit the museum, see the actual Fort. The Fort Morgan Ferry is also one mile down the road. Take a relaxing boat ride over to Dauphin Island, where, along with other tourist attractions, you'll also find Historic Fort Gaines, which you can also tour and has it's own museum. Take your car to tour the Island and Mobile, or just walk onto the ferry for the round trip boat ride. Hint - This makes for a very economical dauphin cruise.
