About the property

Pet Friendly, Beach, Pier on the Bay, Pool Side

Welcome to the Lazy Lizard. The Lizard is a new beach house in Bay to Breakers on the Fort Morgan peninsula of Gulf Shores. If you like peace & quiet when you are on vacation, then this is the place for you. The beach at the end of the boardwalk is private,the pool is a community pool but i have never seen more than a family of 4 in it, so there are no crowds out here, just beauty and peace to enjoy. The house is a 4 bedroom, master is downstairs with a king bed and private bath, with a flat screen TV and private deck that opens off the master with a view of the pool and gulf. There is a large living area with a flat screen TV, and kitchen/dining combo all open with the living area and french doors leading out to a covered/screened porch for dining and relaxing while enjoying the view and the constant breeze between the gulf and the bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, and a large bath, bdr 1 has a queen bed with flat screen tv and bunk beds, bdr 2 has a full size bed with flat screen TV and bdr 3 has twin beds. Off the upstairs hall is a large sun deck for sunning or just relaxing. The swimming pool is 20 feet from the bottom of the stairs, and the beach is a 500 walk to the boardwalk, if you get tired of the beach and pool we also have deeded access to the pier into the bay across the street so you can go fishing or take your lawn chair and sit and watch the sunset. We have added a fire pit to the back yard so you can sit out by a fire and enjoy the evening breeze.

Underneath the house is ample parking and a place for grilling or having a shrimp boil. Well behaved dogs are welcome for a pet fee and must remain on a leash whenever they are off of our property, but the Fort Morgan beach is the only beach in Gulf Shores that allows your dog actually on the beach with you to play.

The construction of the Lazy Lizard was completed in 2013 and everything is shiny and new. We have hired a professional management company for the house so that any needs that might arise during your stay are tended to promptly.**** ADDITIONAL FEE'S ARE PET FEE'S IF YOU BRING YOUR DOG!************* Keep up to date on all the events in the Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan area by liking our FB page at https://www.facebook.com/Lazylizardhouse/

About Rose Duffield

Our family is from Huntsville, al and has always dreamed of owning a vacation home at the beach. We rented a house in Ft. Morgan a few years back and fell in love with the area and the beaches, so we have finally had our dream come true.

Rose Duffield purchased this house in 2012

Why Rose Duffield chose Gulf Shores

We love the laid back, uncrowded Fort Morgan area, it is a beautiful ride out Hwy 180 to Bay to Breakers and it is only a 20 minute ride to Hwy 59, the super Walmart and an easy jaunt to the strip in Gulf Shores, the property is pet friendly as well as the beach.

What makes this house unique

Take long walks on the miles of uncrowded beaches, go fishing on the pier, take a dip in the pool, or just sit on one of the 3 decks and enjoy the views and breeze.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed June 24 - July 1 and had an amazing time. The house is so nice and big enough for 6 adults and 1 child. My extended family came to the house to visit. So 6 adults turned in to 12 adults for dinner with plenty of room for all of us to spread out, eat , visit and then make smores in the fire pit. The beach is close enough that my Mom was able to walk to the water and then take a swim in the pool. (she doesn't swim with fish) Best of all we were able to take our furbabies with us and they were able to sunbath on the gated porch. My only regret is I didn't book it for another week. By far the best vacation ever! Thanks Liz, we all enjoyed ourselves.

FANTASTIC inexpensive beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

- Walk right down a private street to the beach (takes like 2 minutes from front door to feet on the boardwalk, 3 minutes to feet in the sand)

- pool is DIRECTLY next door

- Good sized master bedroom, good sized aux rooms upstairs

- very nice PRIVATE beach (don't know why a private beach is good? because 1) you can LEAVE YOUR STUFF out there... it's actually illegal to leave your stuff on a public beach. and 2) FAR less crowded.

- very nice balconies (sorta 3 of them, though 2 are connected).

- we stayed with 2 families, 6 kids + 4 adults. Was NOT crowded.

- decent internet connection (i'm a nerd)

- ONLY downside is a consequence of the privacy... it's WAY down the beach (if you've never been to Fort Morgan and only been to Orange Beach, you'll be surprised that it takes 30 minutes to drive from this beach house to the "town" area)

- Tacky Jacks 2 is a 2 minute drive away (HIGHLY recommended for adult dinner, kids are ok there too) and less than 10 minutes away from Sassy Bass... GREAT food, GREAT little market (which we didn't go to walmart and instead went there for our food we cooked at home).
