The 'Dunes' Beach House is located in Cabana Beach subdivision, 8961 Pompano Way, on Fort Morgan Peninsula (an area that has beautiful sugar white sand beaches) in Gulf Shores, Alabama, next door to the open, uncrowded beach of Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. We are almost beachfront without the cost. Pompano Way Road dead ends in front of our house, walk left out of our driveway and about 40 steps you are in the Dunes, no roads or lots to cross. Just down the road is the historic
Ft Morgan, and a ferry that crosses the bay to historic Fort Gains on Daulphin Island.
The 'Dunes' brings back memories of long ago, when you sit on one of the two decks, and listen to the birds, watch the waves roll in and sometimes dolphins playing. You can enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, see the stars at night with no obstruction of street lights.
