Notes:
This cottage is very private, cozy, pet friendly and non smoking! Walk onto the front deck & see the beautiful white pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico about 200 yards from your front door. Ft. Morgan area is very 'protected' because the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is located (literally) right by the house. There are walking & biking trails within walking distance of the cottage. This area is beautiful & free from high rise hotels & other 'city' life that creates noise & light pollution. See the beautiful stars at night because it's so dark, also see the dolphins jumping in the morning because it's a common occurrence at your front door. This cottage has many return renters Come to Ft. Morgan & stay in our cozy little cottage, Pair O Dice! Email me for questions!

Wow! Location is perfect. Cottage was clean and the views were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Mary was so nice and readily available for questions. I truly appreciated the letter listing fun things to do that were nearby. The cottage was perfect for our family of three. Beds were so comfy. If it's your first time to the beach, you'll really appreciate the outdoor shower to rinse the sand off. The washer and dryer were definitely a plus. We saw dolphins from the deck almost daily. The Blue Angels practice runs were pretty awesome too. The beach is stunning and a shell seekers paradise. We are truly blessed to have came across this little gem after hours of researching for the perfect place. We met new people that we can happily call friends . We look forward to returning on future vacations. Thank you so much Ms. Mary!

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for us and our 2 4-legged kids! We had a great beachfront view of the ocean and easy access with the new wooden walkways! The weather was very cooperative - we walked on the beach and in the water every single day!! Loved it!!

Downtime

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing time for my husband and I. It's a great place to have down time. We sun bathed, played in the wonderful clear water, fished for dinner. If you want quietness this is the place. Ms. Mary is great to deal with. We want to return if our host will have us. Also, have a great neighbor that helps if you want to know where the locals go. We fell in love with this area. Glad it's a dog friendly beach. Our fur babies loved it also. Go to the Fort. Thanks again Mary.

Fun, laid back location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Great little beach cottage! The place is dog friendly which was perfect beacuse I take my dog just about everywhere. He loved running on the beach and I enjoyed watching him do just that. The stores are close and the only time we left the beach was to go grocery shopping. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful if you happen to need anything. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back. Thank you guys so much!
