Recent Reviews About This Property
Average Vacation Rental Rating (Based on 37 reviews)
"After unpacking, husband and dog settled into lazy-boy and they were home! The house was so similar to our own that it felt like home from day one. Whenever, I needed something, I checked around and quickly found it, be it an ice cream scoop or bandaid. That was a nice plus. House was very clean and tastefully decorated and location to beach was great. The neighborhood was quiet with a mixture of visitors and owners. Also, disaster when my tv loving husband discovered that none of the 6 tvs had a signal. I called and within 10 minutes someone was there to fix. Would love to rent again."
"Yay!! That is awesome! My Sunshine is very cozy with a homey feel to it that makes you feel right at home! I am so glad that maintenance was quick to respond to resolve your TV issues. Our guys are great! We would love to book you again in this beautiful home! Just give us a call!"
"Walking distance to beautiful beach. The beach wagon definitely came in handy. House had all the amenities we needed/wanted (even a Keurig coffee maker). "
"Evelyn, thank you SO much for leaving a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you back!"
"As soon as your reservation is confirmed the management company has open communication and regularly sends updates. That is the best. The house was long as you can handle having the song "You are My Sunshine" in your head 24 hours a day for your entire stay. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well equipped and it is easy walking distance to the beach. There is no parking near the beach so definitely use the beach wagon from the house, or you will be tired carrying what you need for a day at the beach! The weather was perfect. The only downsides were biting yellow flies(which can usually be avoided by staying in the sun and using bug repellent) and some stickers in the yard, so be aware if you have dogs with you. I would definitely recommend the property and the property management. I would definitely recommend driving to Alabama point beach which is only about a half our drive...especially if you have kids. We drove two hours and multiple days for beaches and it was the best one around."
"Awesome! Thank you so much for the great review! We try to make the reservation process as easy as possible so that all you have to do is arrive and start enjoying your vacation! Give us a review on our Facebook page and call us to book your next stay at My Sunshine!"
"This was our first time staying in Ft. Morgan. The house was very clean and comfortable for our 3 teens and our golden retriever.
Not far from the beach and very close to the bay.
We had a nice breeze and the sound of the waves were very relaxing.
Morning coffee on the front porch was my favorite.
We cooked breakfast every morning and the kitchen was well equipped.
We would definitely stay here again."
"Yay! We are so glad you discovered our little slice of Heaven! And we love our dog-friendly beaches! Visit our Facebook page and add your great review so we can get the word out about our beautiful beaches!"
"We stayed here for two months last year and liked it so much we spent four months this year. The folks at Sunset really take care of any issues and I Thank Them for a job well done."
"Jerry, we were so glad to have you again! Happy that you enjoyed your stay here with us!!"
"We had a very relaxing time and enjoyed our stay a great deal."
"YAY! Relaxing time is a great phrase to use while on vacation!! We hope you get to come out and see us again soon!"
"The location was perfect for what we wanted. The pictures did not do the house justice. The kids enjoyed the crab traps and we were successful in catching blue crabs and hermit crabs. The wall to the beach wasn't a bad walk and having the use of the beach wagons and chairs were nice. Looking forward to staying at the house again."
"Yay!! We are so very glad you enjoyed your visit with us! This is a great house, the bay side is awesome!!"
"This is our second year at my sunshine and we enjoyed it both times."
"YAY! Our repeaters make us so happy! Very glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you again!!"
"We absolutely loved the My Sunshine house. It was a lot bigger inside than it looked on the outside. We had 6 people and the house was plenty big for all of us. I would recommend this property to anyone going on vacation at Ft. Morgan."
"YIpee! Thank you, TOnya, so glad you enjoyed your stay with us!"
"This is our second year visiting and we fell in love with this house. Not only was it cozy and just like home but the owner even had extra essentials at the house and many things that can be brought to the beach. Will definitely be back to stay here again next year!"
"Yay!! Always glad to hear this, it is a great house, we look forward to your next trip down!"
"Everything was wonderful from the staff to the location of the beautiful home "
"Thank you for taking the time to post a review, and we love our straight 5's too! We work hard to make sure every guest has the most perfect stay. Hope to see you again!"
"This three bedroom home on the Gulf Side of the Fort Morgan peninsula was comfortable, clean and well furnished including toys for kids, beach gear, dog bowls, books, and a few DVDs. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. "
"Thank you for the review"
"It was amazing and even better than
We expected. We will definitely be back. "
"The property was very clean and well equipped. The owner even had beach toys, chairs and a wagon on the property for us to use. The walk to the beach is not bad for adults but a little difficult with small children in the heat. However there is room at the beach to park. The view of the bay is beautiful. Access to a pool would have been great since there were so many jellyfish in the ocean making it hard to swim and enjoy the water."
"This was our first vacation to the Gulf Shore area. The beaches are gorgeous and the water is so clear! You can see your feet when your five feet deep in the water. The house was extremely nice. I have never stayed in a beach house that was stocked with so many items. It was really nice. The only down side is the house is across the highway and I was unaware of that. It is about a five-six minute walk to the beach. I was also over-whelmed with the southern charm of people from Alabama. Everyone is so nice. We are definitely coming back and making this our new beach vacation spot!!"
"Thank you for the review!"
"better than the usual rental! Everything was so new and clean. Check in and out was a breeze."
"Thanks for the review!"
"This house was perfect, very clean and we liked the fact that it was a short walk to the beach instead of being right on top of the beach felt a little more quiet. Spectacular views of the bay as well. The house had everything we needed."
"Whoop! Whoop! Straight 5's!! That's what we strive to get. We hope we get the opportunity to earn straight 5's again from you in the near future. "
"clean, comfortable and management very friendly and helpful"
"The house was very nice and clean. the bathrooms were fairly updated and the bedrooms were comfortable. It is a nice walk to the beach but you do get a view of the bay off the front porch. We went during a more off season mid September and the neighborhood was nice a quiet I really enjoyed that."
"Perfection!! Clean, Cozy, Comfortable, Beautiful Home!! The outside decks were amazing!! View of the Bay Stunning!! Becky & Alex were kind,friendly, very professional and just wonderful!!! Relaxation at its best!! Thank you for sharing paradise with me and my family!!!"
"Great time with family. Plenty of space, beautiful home with great decks. Easy access to beach."
"The house was perfect size for my family. It was tasteful and comfortable. It has to be the only vacation home I have stayed in that you actually had proper cooking pans and utensils. It was on perfect for my son to fish and crab (just at end of street). The beach was not a very far walk. We had a great time and the owner was so kind as to allow us the use of the wagon and all beach items. My son used her kayak and went out with a friend of hers and had a wonderful time. Only complaint, just not long enough."
"My family enjoyed the property. Being out first time n the area, I am glad we chose Fort Morgan area. After spending time up by the high rise Condo's near the "Hang out", we quickly discovered it is a great place to go have a little fun, spend a little money, but I think it would be too crowded to stay there for my likings."
"We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at My Sunshine. The house is in excellent condition and is equipped with everything you need for your vaction. We liked the short walk to the bay for the dog and the walk to the beach was easy also. Great place."
"Becky is great to work with , very helpful. Home is well supplied and maintained. Neighbors were very pleasant and helpful. We would visit U R MY SUNSHINE again. "
"We were very happy with the house; It was lovely and well furnished and clean. It was farther from the beach than we wanted and there wasn't very much parking areas for the beach, but overall, we were very pleased with our choice and the management was very nice. I would, definitely recommend this property to a friend."
"Thank you for taking time to write a review of your stay in MY SUNSHINE. So glad to hear that you were happy with the house and property, it is such a cute property and the décor is so inviting! Sorry you found the beach a little to far away for your liking and that the parking was an issue. We do hope you will call or go online to book your next stay with us soon! Sincerely, Sunset Properties Staff"
"This is a great house, close to the beach (a short walk) with one of the best equipped kitchens we have ever rented. Good if you want a quiet vacation away from the bustle of Orange Beach. "
"Thank you for taking the time to review this property and your vacation. My Sunshine is truly a jewel on our rental property we are so glad you had the opportunity to stay in this property and enjoy all of it's cozy loveliness. Let us know when you are ready to come back and stay again! Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff"
"Delightful property. Close to the beach and the bay. Owner and property management company did a great job. Professional, friendly, great follow-up. An absolute stay again."
"This is a lovely home with all of the amenities we needed to relax and enjoy our vacation."
"Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time in Fort Morgan. We hope to see you on your next vacation! Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff"
"Without the benefit of having been to Fort Morgan or the Gulf Shores area, we had to rely on our internet search. We happened upon U R My Sunshine and read the reviews. The property was as promised: It was clean, inviting, centrally located, and convenient to restaurants and shopping, without being too close. We were very happy with our choice and with the inviting way we were treated by Becky and the Sunset Properties company. We plan to return to the area, if not the same house, next year."
"We are so thrilled that you had such a fantastic stay. My Sunshine is an amazing property, You chose well. We hope to see you back in with us again in the future. Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff"
"Becky has done an amazing job with "My Sunshine". From the moment that we got there, a complete sense of relaxation and total pampering came over us. This has owner spared no expense in making a beautiful and completely equipped (Wi-Fi and Direct TV in all rooms) home away from home atmosphere. The pictures do not do this beautifully decorated home justice. And the views from the decks were breathtaking. What better way to start the day than to sit on the front porch, coffee in hand and watch the beautiful sunrises. Or sit on the back deck with a cold drink and watch the sunsets and boats coming into the bay. My youngest son who was home on leave (USMC / Semper Fi) really enjoyed (as we all did) the free airshows that we got from the F18 flyovers. This was the first time that we took our pets with us and they had a blast. The beach was a nice walk for them and us. We were also able to take my 75 year old mother to the beach with her walker. She loved it! The only problem that we had was that our vacation did not last long enough! For the past 35 years we have vacationed and camped all over the Southeast and Gulf Panhandle so I can safely say this place is definitely in the top 5. Thank you so much Becky for sharing your wonderful home!
"Thank so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We are thrilled to hear that each member of your family enjoyed every moment of their stay. We hope to see you again in the future!!! Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff "
"I will start off with the good...Becky's home is beautiful, super clean, well furnished and decorated. The master bath is amazing, and her use of angles is refreshing and a nice change from the norm. The views of the bay are great. The added freebie of kayaks and the beach cart are also nice.
When I managed to lock both keys inside, I drove to the office for a third key, and was laughed WITH, not AT. The Blue Angel jet flyover (4 passes) Tuesday was amazing. Ocean's Pizza in Plaza West is fantastic.
Now the not-so-good... And please keep in mind that this is a reflection of the area, not the house. We drove there from St Louis, and I know we were there in prime time, but the traffic on hwy 98 was ridiculous, and hwy 59 was even worse. We sat in traffic for over 4 hours on our way in, and 2 hours on our way out. They have no clue what synchronized stop lights are in that town. Buy your groceries in Gulf shores on the way in, because the little grocery in Ft Morgan is highway robbery. And very grumpy staff on top of it.
The beaches were the dirtiest I have ever seen in my life, and I have been all over the Gulf Coast and the ocean side from Daytona to the Outer Banks.
People are allowed to put up those pop-up picnic shelters, and leave them up all week. If you are not one of the first ones at the beach on Saturday to set up, you never get to be on the "Front Row' all week unless you want to sit right on top of someone.
A mountain lion...yes, a mountain lion, not a bobcat, not a dog, not anything else, walked through the yard next to us on Tuesday afternoon. Four of the six people there saw it. We never saw it again, but that was pretty unusual.
So, would I recommend the property? Yes, my satisfaction with Becky's house and the staff Of Sunset Properties rates 5 stars. Would I recommend the area? No, despite all the good things I heard before going there.
"Thank you for taking the time to give us such a detailed and great review. This is not our first report of trash on the beach this year. It does seem to be an unusually high amount and yes the tents are becoming a problem. This very week we met with homeowners to set up a program to control the trash and tents on the beach. We do hope you visit our area again. As far as the mountain lions go, this is the first time we have heard of this but Fort Morgan is a very wildlife friendly area and more than likely it was a Florida Panther. We will report to fish and wildlife this sighting. Did you get a picture??? Sincerely, Sunset Property Staff"
"House was definitely roomier than pictures indicated. Perfect for 6 people. Golf cart rental through Sharp Karts was a real life saver to get all our gear to the beach. Caught blue crab in the trap every night!"
"Wow! It sounds like you had a fantastic trip. My Sunshine is such a wonderful home. Sharp Karts is absolutly worth the money for those Bay side homes. Be sure o send us some picture of your Blue Crab adventures, we would love to see them!!! Thank you for taking the time to review this property and your vacation. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff "
"We love the location where we are between Mobile Bay and Ft. Morgan beach. There is a boat launch two houses down. We caught over 300 fish! Mostly mullets and speckles. The kids love the sandbox in the carport. It's so convience when we have rainy days! The neighbors are so friendly. My dogs love the back balcony and the beach to chased the fish away. Again, we all had a greatest time. "
"WOW, We are so glad you had a wonderful time on vacation. I think 300 fish is some sort of record!!! This home is wonderful and we appreciate you sharing your thoughts and stories in this review. Now others people can hear how wonderful it is from you as well. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff "
"we loved everything about My Sunshine. It was a beautiful home and had everything we could have asked for. We will definitely be back. The air conditioner stopped working when we were there but the rental company had someone come out and fix it within an hour. Overall our experience was great!"
"YAY!!! We love to hear you had such a wonderful time even though some of your vacation was not perfect. It is good to know our staff met and exceeded your every need. Thank you for taking the time to review this property and your vacation and we look forward to seeing you angain in the near future! Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff"
"We were very pleased with the house and area. The house was beautiful and clean. Very nice decor. Becky had tons of books, DVDs, puzzles, extra pillows. Everything you could ask for. Even had some sunburn gel!! Loved the location. Very quiet, short walk to beach. Loved, Loved, Loved it!!"
"If you are looking for a quiet spot to rest and enjoy the beach, this is the place. The home is immaculate and the owner very accommodating. We found the library complete which added to our reading pleasure. "

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

We had an incredible experience at LA Getaway! The home was very clean and perfect for two young families to share. The beach is just around 100 yards away and extremely secluded - only a few other families down there with us. This was the best first beach getaway for our little ones! We are already planning for next year!!!M.New

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

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
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
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
