"Great place to stay if you like to be away from the traffic and crowded beach. Beach access about 1/4 mile across the street and was not crowded. The only down side was the steps for us older folk. "
"Boathouse is a unique home! And what about that rooftop deck?? Love that view! And, yes, steps can be tiresome, but are a necessity when you are that close to the bay! We look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to come back!"
"The house was great. Short walk to the beach. Th home was very clean. We had 6 of us and we all slept comfortably. It was great to have a full kitchen. The deck on top was amazing! The views from every window had a water view. "
"YAY!! This is what we love to hear, so glad to have you!"
"We loved the house and the location! I was not expecting a snake on the stairs the first night and a gator being chased by a blue heron on the 2nd day. It made for an exciting vacation! A new grill is needed. On a side note, my daughter lost her class ring. Please contact us if it is located. Thanks!"
"Woohoo! That is so cool that you could see the wildlife from Boathouse! I will pass on the grill comment to the owner of this house. If we find a class ring, we'll let you know! We'd love to have you back!"
"Beach access was across the road"
"Yes, the home you rented was located on the bay! We certainly hope you enjoyed your stay with us!"
"We loved the house and all the outdoor spaces. It needs a bit more outdoor furniture. At least two chairs on each level. Loved the decks all around the house, so that we always had the option of being in or out of the sun and had great views at any time of the day and great sunrises and sunsets. It was unclear in the description where the beach access was, so we were thrilled that it was right across the street, literally could not have been any closer. The little bay beach was nice for wandering along with coffee in the am. The gas grill downstairs needs to be replaced, like for real. Well be back!"
"Fantastic! Boathouse is a unique, beautiful home, and what a view! We will certainly pass along the information about the grill! Give us a call and let us get you booked for another stay at Boathouse!"
"We had a great stay and the accommodations were excellent-We will go back"
"Fantastic!! So glad you enjoyed your stay at Boathouse! Give us a call when you are ready to come back!"
"Excellent facilities. Lovely interior, well designed, furnished, maintained except as noted. Two and one-half blocks from the gulf and 75 feet from bay on this amazing peninsula 18 miles away from the commercial activities of Gulf Shores. The large roof decks very appealing. Quiet neighborhood. One note: Master BR outdoor does not lock and Master Bath door needs sanded or planed off to avoid sticking. Nothing major wrong. A lot major right. Thanks for an excellent week."
"Yippee!! We are so very glad you enjoyed your stay with us in paradise!! Hope to see you again real soon!"
"Wefelt very at home when we walked in. Very beautiful,looked just like all the pictures!Had a light out and was fixed the next morning! House is in a great neighborhood,no noise. The Gulf is two blocks away,a great beach. We are already planning three more trips. Great sunsets!!!! If you want to relax,this is the place for you!"

"This home is one of the nicest we have stayed in. You can tell the owners take pride in their home. Nicely appointed and we loved the rooftop deck! My kids loved splashing around and floating in the bay at your back door and the beach (visible from the home) is a short walk across the street. A great place to stay on Fort Morgan!"

"We just enjoyed a wonderful week at the Boathouse!
Watched beautiful sunsets from the top deck & enjoyed walks on the beach just a block away. Jennifer was very attentive & easy to work with."
"Joanne, it was so good to talk with you! I'm very glad you enjoyed the house and your stay! We appreciate you taking time to leave a review for us. "
"The house is great, very clean and the views are beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for an extended stay and has plenty of space in the open living room and kitchen. The house is only 5 minutes from the historic Ft. Morgan site and we really enjoyed that tour. You can also catch the Dauphin Island ferry there too. We are looking forward to going back again in the future!"
"We are so glad you came out and stayed with us! It IS such a great area to explore, we hope you will be able to come out and stay with us again."
"The Boathouse was a spacious, clean and bright rental home. It had plenty of space for our family of 4 plus our dog. We all felt very comfortable, loved the master shower and enjoyed the rooftop deck every morning and evening.
The bbq grill needs some attention. It is unsafe to cook anything due to all the rust. We enjoyed dinner at the Sassy Bass and visited many of the local restaurants. It was a great vacation home!"
"Yay! We love to hear that!! Hate that about the grill, but we don't require our owners to have a grill on the property and often a guest will buy a cheap one in town and bring it out. We do tell our guests when they call that there isn't a guarantee they will have one. Thank you for staying with us!"
"Loved the location. The house was great, one of the nicest vacation homes we've ever stayed in. The house was very cleaned and neat. And it's only located about 20 minutes from Gulf Shores. Loved watching the sunset on the bay. "
"Whoop whoop! Thank you, so so glad you enjoyed the house. It is a great location!"
"My family and I had an amazing time and will definitely be returning."
"So so glad to hear this!! We will love to have you back!"
"This is a beautiful home. The location was great. The house was very comfortable and we cannot wait to revisit. "
"Yes, we agree this is such a great location, and we are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself! Until next "
"Had a great stay. Loved looking out to the Bay and walking two minutes to the Gulf. House was wonderful. Perfect for one or two couples."
"Thanks so much for taking time to write a review! It is a great house, an such a good area. We hope you'll come out and see us again!"
"We had a wonderful time at the boathouse. It has a great view of the bay and a super top deck. The amenities were good."
"Yay so glad you enjoyed your stay! The boathouse does have an awesome view! Maybe we'll see you again soon."
"We had an amazing time!!!!"
"Katrina, we are so glad you had a great time. I enjoyed talking to you and wish I had got to meet you! We hope you'll come back soon!"
"The view was beautiful from the rooftop deck. House was spotless and very well kept.
Would love to see the brush cleaned up around the property.
ALso, the channel selection for the tv was terrible. "
"We love the rooftop deck at Boathouse also. Its so big and wraps around to get view from every direction. We are very happy to hear you loved it. It is definitely a great place to have your morning coffee and relax or enjoy a beautiful sunset. We hope to see you again soon. "
"The Boathouse was lovely. We especially enjoyed the rooftop deck. "
"Very enjoyable! I would only suggest that the yard surrounding the driveway and covered parking be mowed.
The weeds were so high and stickers growing across the
driveway were inadvertently stepped on. Ouch! "
"Oooppps... Sorry for the sticker! We will definitely encourage the owner of the property to cut the grass."
"House was very nice. Loved the patios and rooftop views. Loved all the room. Needed to have the lawn mowed. Didn't like all the tall grass around the house. The alligator sign is a little scary when you first see it. Too close to other house. Glad nobody was in the house beside us, wouldn't have privacy when out on rooftop or patio. View of bay was nice but too close to the road and not a good view of gulf. "
"Thank you for the review! Due to the incident in Disney, we wanted to learn from their mistake. This area does have one or two gators so we wanted to be extra cautious on our guests behalf. "
"From check in to check out, great place; beautiful to have a relaxing vacations. "
"We had a group of 4, two couples, and this house was great. Everything was so clean and bright. The decor was fabulous. I loved how the lock was a pin pad entry, it saved us from having to go to the rental company to grab the key."
"We just moved from Georgia (northwest of ATL.) to Ft. Payne, AL. last summer and have been working hard to get settled in. We really needed a 'mental health' break at the beach. Having never stayed in the Gulf Shores area, we didn't know what to expect. The Boat House was one of the few places we could find that was pet friendly on rather short notice. It was clean, comfortable and far enough away from the congestion of the 'main drag' of Gulf Shores. We would have liked to be a little closer to the shore, but it was only a short walk to beautiful white sand (and we needed the exercise). Over all it was a very pleasant experience."
"We are so glad you choose us as your mental health recovery center!! We like to think we offer a great little escape from reality. We hope you will return soon!"
"The place was wonderful. It was down near fort Morgan , so it was quiet . The view from the top deck was wonderful. It is beautifully decorated and had everything you need for your stay. I would definitely return! "
"Doesn't Boathouse just rock?!?! It's such a distinctive house. The owner is a local builder who has built or worked on hundreds of homes in our area so he knew exactly what type of home to build for our guests! We hope you can come back and stay with us again very soon! "
"The Boathouse was great. It had just what we needed and plenty of space. The views from the Boathouse were awesome. We loved watching the different types of birds coming into the bay from the rooftop. We will definitely be staying here again. It was nice and quiet to be away from the crowded beaches of gulf shores, but still be close enough to town to go and eat and do the amusement things. Our dog loved it too! She enjoyed walking out on the roof and looking around."
"I am very please with my rental. The living and kitchen areas are very spacious. There is plenty of room for you and your pups. There is a little strip of beach on the back bay you can walk to in one minute from this house. Beautiful sunsets and a top roof deck to view the stars. "
"Thank you for taking time to review your stay with Sunset Properties in Boathouse. So glad you were pleased with the property and that you enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and star gazing from the rooftop deck. Boathouse is the perfect property for enjoying all of the beauty of both the Bay and the beach. We hope you will call us soon to book your next stay with us in Boathouse. Sunset Properties Staff"
"This is an incredible house, quite unique in design (shaped like a boat!)and beautiful inside and out; extremely comfortable and beautiful interior design (well chosen original art on the walls). Boathouse is on the bay and has direct access to the bay. The Gulf of Mexico beach is across the street, a very easy stroll, within two blocks walking distance from the Boathouse.The rooftop deck on Boathouse is stunning and huge; there is a wide staircase to access the rooftop deck. You can see both bay and the gulf beaches from the rooftop deck. There are also two decks on the main floor, one is attached to the great room (kitchen, dining, living room) and one off of the master bedroom. It was so quiet and peaceful in Boathouse during our stay; we could hear the sounds of nature and not much traffic or people talking or partying. Part of the reason is the location; Boathouse is about two miles from Fort Morgan at the end of the Gulf Shores peninsula. The other thing is that we went at the beginning of November. All in all, we had the most wonderful wedding anniversary ever and would stay here again. The only recommendation is to make sure that you bring some beach chairs for the rooftop deck as there is no furniture up there. The other is to bring plenty of summer clothes, even in the Fall. We stayed six nights and had perfect, high 70's to mid 80 degree weather the entire time of our stay. We appreciate the owners of the Boathouse for letting us rent their gorgeous house and Sunset Properties for great customer service."
"Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us in The Boathouse. From the sound of it you enjoyed the perfect getaway in this unique house on the bay. Perfect weather for relaxing and enjoying our little hidden paradise. We have let the owner know about the lack of furniture on the rooftop deck and hopefully their will be comfortable seating the next time you visit us at The Boathouse. Please call or go online to book your next stay with us soon. Sunset Properties Staff"
"Nice place, could have used a little more outdoor furniture. Great views, loved seeing the dolphins play in the morning just outside the balcony. Enjoyed going to the beach, shrimp fest, good food and drink and great friends. Liked that it was a little off the beat and path. "
"Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us in Boathouse. A very unique property with an awesome view. We have contacted the owner about some furniture for the top deck, hopefully there will be some for your next stay. We look forward to booking your next visit soon! Sunset Properties Staff"
"Boathouse has a great view of the bay and only a couple hundred yards from the Gulf beach public access. The property is new and has a nicely appointed kitchen for preparing meals. The master bedroom was comfy and has a large double shower. Second bedroom is spacious and has it's own semi-private bath. The sunsets are nice off the wrap around deck or watch the stars come out from the roof top. The furnishings are an eclectic collection of new and old "marche aux puces" finds with a definite beach theme and appears to be built as a flip-sale home. As with most homes in the Ft. Morgan area, they are build with minimal lot lines, but this home does offer some privacy from your neighbor. Although it's only a two bedroom, it lives much larger than it's size with a spacious patio/garage area for grilling and a full home sq. footage footprint on the roof deck. You're just a couple miles from Ft. Morgan Park and the ferry to Dauphin Island/Mobile. The area is bike friendly for adult cycling and offers a 4 foot lane on most of the highway near the property. I did not give this property 5 stars for cleanliness as the floors were a bit sandy, had pet hair on and some of the furniture (despite the NO pets), some trash left in the kitchen and a few insect issues. Bottom line: I would consider renting the property again."
"The boathouse could not have been a better place to celebrate our honeymoon and spring break. The exterior and interior are beautifully decorated. The location was serene, just steps from the bay and the beach, which can be viewed 360 degrees from the top deck! "

Renting with Sunset Properties -
We loved our time at The Indies in Fort Morgan! The condo was beautiful, clean, and well maintained. Our family of four was very comfortable in the one bedroom condo. We loved being a bit (25 minutes or so) from the commercialized and crowded Gulf Shores/Orange Beach areas. They were close enough to visit, but then we could get back to our own "semi-private" beach and relax. The checkout and checkin processes were extremely simple and the maintenance crew was right on the one simple question we had. We loved it and will definitely be back!N.Bauman

We went down for a 4 day fishing trip and had an absolutely WONDERFUL time. Navy Cove couldn't have been a better setting for the trip - the condo came with an electric boat lift, plenty of bait fish there in the marina that you can cast net for or catch on an ultralight, and quick access to red fish, jack crevalle, red snapper, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, trout, etc etc. The condo was very nice and had one of the best views in the complex. It's an end unit with 2 balconies overlooking Bon Secour & Mobile Bay.E.DeLana

I have had three management companies, and there is absolutely NO COMPARISON between them and Sunset Properties. They are truly, in several senses, a family organization, with the owners living on-site, and all members of the staff truly like a family, among themselves, and in their relationships with the homeowners.G.Gilmore
Working with Sunset Properties -
I have vacation properties in Gulf Shores, and they are all with Sunset Properties. Although I live close by the job of renting, managing, promoting plus handling the maintenance and cleaning in order to maximize my rental income, takes a lot more time and effort than one person can oversee. They are a fantastic company.A
Owner Review -
We would never use any other company to rent our house, because the people at Sunset Properties take a personal interest in our property. All of these little things help the bottom line. And, the service--it is unbelievable. .Mrs.Vaughan

The location of the property itself was very nice and clean. The condo was even nicer in person and actually very roomy. Everything was clean and stocked very well. There's a great view of the beach. My favorite part was how quiet the location was. There wasn't much traffic and we rarely even seen other people. The beach was beautiful and very private. At most, we shared it with maybe 20 other people at one time. One time we were the only ones on the beach. There's a 20-30 drive to all the tourists type things depending on traffic which isn't too bad and there's a Dollar General just a few miles up the road in case you forgot something.S.Parker
