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.

Awesome Beach House directly on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place is GREAT! We rented this house with 3 other couples.

it has4 bedrooms (2 King & 2 Queen) with a bathroom & flatscreen TV in each. Each Bathroom has a huge shower. Two bedrooms open to the huge covered deck with new deck furniture that faces the beach. The kitchen has Granite counter tops and is big and well stocked with about every appliance you can think of. They even have a standalone ice maker. Washer and dryer right off the kitchen. There is a huge table that seats 8 and the Great room has plenty of seats for everyone and opens onto that huge deck. It even has wifi if you need it. This place will exceed your expectations! It is right on the beach . It has a private awning on the beach that is huge & also has beach chairs. It was way better than renting a condo like we usually do. We had a GREAT time and will be back!

Perfect location, wonderful decor, outside shower

  • 5 of 5

THIS IS IT!! Look no further, book now! We have stayed here the past 2 years and will not stay anywhere else. The owner is so easy to work with and very accommodating! This open floor plan was very inviting for the entire family and every bedroom has their own bath which is very convenient. The beds are WONDERFUL and the bedding even better. The house is filled with games, puzzles, and the kitchen has more pots/pans/utensils than I've ever seen at a beach rental. Full size washer/dryer for your convenience. Now outside....a number of comfortable seating for the whole family on an open back porch overlooking the beach. Many areas for great pictures. Open underneath with a secluded shower, picnic tables, full-size grill, and a permanent awning right on the beach (along with 4 chairs). We have been traveling to Gulf Shores for 10 years plus and have stayed at MANY beach-front condos but this house wins the approval from the whole family! We will be staying here again very soon!!!!!
