SO close to the water

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. I can't say enough about it. Private beach literally a stone throws away from house. House is open and airy. The kitchen is very well stocked. We could find everything we needed. The bedrooms/bathrooms are a delight. Plenty of room for everyone without feeling cramped.

My ONLY frustration was trying to figure out the remotes/Netflix for the tv. We never could find the Netflix with (4) adults and (2) teenagers.

Not only did we thoroughly enjoy our stay we'd love to come back.

Best House on the Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at lots of places in the Gulf Shores/Fort Mogan area, but this is by far the best place we have ever stayed. The part we loved the most is the covered porch across the back of the whole house. So when we felt like we needed a break from the sun we could still feel like we were "at the beach," and go sit on the porch. We loved cooking in the beautiful kitchen and had some really great nights of sleep in the very comfy beds!! The only negative is that it is right next to the Beach Club and even though there is a sign that says PRIVATE PROPERTY, we had a lot of people from that property coming over and setting up their chairs in or area. This wasn't really a problem until we had some obnoxious Spring Break college boys that invaded our area. Thankfully, they left the next day!

Best Beach House on Gulf coast

  • 5 of 5

For over 20 years we have been renting houses on the beach as a Mardi Gras getaway. With few exceptions all rental houses have been in Gulf Shores, but Faith Haven is by far the best house we have had the privilege to rent. This extremely well maintained house is ideal for four couples and the kitchen has everything you need. We would stay at Faith Haven over and over again.

Beautiful cottage on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach. Great views. Beautifully furnished. Very comfortable. Perfect for 4 couples (4 bedrooms, each with full bath). Large common area---living room, dining table, kitchen. Large covered porch facing the beach. Things to know: Guests will need to be able to negotiate one flight of steps. And very little (other than bed linens and towels) is provided. Bring everything you need---beach gear, paper towels, trash bags, plastic storage containers, salt, pepper, dish soap, shower soap, coffee filters, etc. The grocery store is about 15 minutes away. We'll be back!

Faith Haven is the perfect name for this property

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more happy with our week at Faith Haven. The property was immaculate, everything was new and in good working order. We found the kitchen very well equipped even having two slow cookers, an electric skillet and a Keurig coffeemaker as well as a traditional Mr. Coffee-type coffee pot. Linens were new and beds were comfortable. The battery-operated smoke detectors started chirping as we were moving in but we had extra batteries with us. We found a ladder in the upstairs storage room and changed those batteries out and all was well for the rest of the week. We had hoped to rent the house again in March 2017 but, alas, it is already booked so we were too slow in making our reservation. We will definitely stay at Faith Haven again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

While I am late getting this review in, it does not reflect how wonderful our experience was! Maegan, the owner, is so helpful and attentive – she works hard to make sure your visit to Fort Morgan is hasslefree in every way.

The house has a great set up for two families. Each set of adults took one of the king bedroom suites and we split the kids in the other two bedrooms. The main living area is central to the house and is a perfect gathering spot. The back deck is so relaxing, we spent a lot of time sitting out and watching the waves in the evening with a nice glass of wine.

They provide you with your own already built out shade structure on the beach, with plenty of beach chairs. It was so convenient to go out every morning and have it all ready for us. And if you go, you have to ghost crab at night! It was awesome!

I can't think of any detail that is overlooked at this property. I highly recommend and look forward to going back again.
