Perfect location for our family!    Sep 14, 2019

review star

This is our second visit to this wonderful condo with our family, and we simply love it! Our party includes my husband and I, my 20 something son, and my thirtysomething daughter, her husband, and their young son. We all enjoy the more quiet section of beach here at Fort Morgan! You can literally walk in one direction, and never see a single soul. We enjoy the local restaurants on Fort Morgan, and only drove back into Gulf Shores twice during our week’s stay. And this condo is simply amazing! We’ve never stayed in a nicer unit than this! Everything in the unit is top notch, clean, well organized, and well-equipped. It is spacious, and has plenty of room for adults and children as well. The views from the unit are amazing! One evening, we literally watched a carnival cruise ship in Mobile Bay make its way out into the ocean! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful unit with our families!

Great place! Very quiet and family friendly.    Aug 30, 2019

I have stayed here for the past four years with three of my high school girlfriends. It’s become a tradition. This condo is perfect! It’s spacious, very clean and has all the amenities you would need. The owners are great to leave the little extras that you would need on your trip. The beach is less crowded, so we definitely enjoy our time out by the water. We look forward to staying here again next year.

A Wonderful Family Vacation.. An amazing Owner...    Jul 13, 2019

review star

My husband and I had a wonderful family vacation with our 8 year old and 1 year old along with his parents. We have always stayed in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach so this was our first time being in Fort Morgan. I can honestly say that we fell completely in love with it. Mrs. Dianne is amazing to work with I could not of asked for a better person to rent from. She answered so many of my questions and provided so much information to us. We communicated via email and even talked the phone as well. When we were down Barry was actually blowing ashore and she took time out of her day to call to make sure that we knew what was going on and emailed me to make sure that we were aware that there were double red flags. What other owner do you know would do that? The condo is amazing it really truly is a second home. It was definitely enough space for all six of us. They provide things that you don't even think about bringing. We truly enjoyed ourselves and we didn't want to leave. We can't wait to come back. We hope to book this condo again in the future. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation and a lifetime of memories!

Enjoyed our Stay!    Sep 09, 2017

review star

Bright, roomy, and location, location, location! We liked being out of the hustle/bustle of tourist crowds. But close enough for a short drive to town for shopping or dining out. Slept in late, sat out on either balcony most all of every morning for breakfast. . Listening to the ocean, watching the waves and relaxing. Kitchen fully stocked with everything you could want - major brand name utensils and appliances. The condo was very clean! The furnishings comfortable and we really liked the artwork and beach decorations. I want a dresser just like the one in the entry. Easy walk to beach for sunrise and sunsets. 2 pools and hot tubs, mini gym for use.
We liked staying here, would return without hesitation. Friendly neighbors/guests. Good parking. Easy access to ferry, the drive to Gulf shores, about 20 miles. Good bike lane on highway. Tacky Jacks good for burgers and right across street. Imagine yourself sitting on the balcony, watching sunset and sharing great dinner of locally caught fish. This is the place! Thank you, Dianne & Tom for sharing great condo.

Great Family Vacay    Jul 15, 2017

My family and friends enjoyed a wonderful week in the condo! There were 3 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of room and it was very comfortable. We enjoyed all the upgraded amenities and complimentary toiletries. We also enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pool and just a short walk to the beach. Amazing views from each balcony. We will definitely stay again!
Thanks Dianne!

Wonderful Condo...LOTS of space....beautiful views    Jul 09, 2016

review star

We LOVE the Dunes Beach Retreat! We have been here multiple times, and will definitely be back. Ample room for our family of 6! Hosts provide lots of good information and have excellent communication. We had everything we needed while we were there. The beach is quiet, and plenty of room on the beach to set up your tent for the duration of your stay. Beautiful white sand just steps away from your unit. Our kids also loved the pool (even with an indoor option if you want). You need to stay here!

Beautiful condo & views in private Fort Morgan, AL (Gulf Shores area)    Jun 11, 2016

review star

Our family of 4 had a fabulous time at this gorgeous 3 bedroom condo overlooking the Gulf and the bay in private Fort Morgan, Alabama. We even got to see the Blue Angels fly RIGHT from our balcony! This condo has everything you need for a fun & relaxing family vacation. It is beautifully decorated as well. The pools are clean as well as the white sand beach. If we go back to the Gulf Shores area, we would definitely rent this condo again. The owners were VERY easy to work with and made the rental part so easy. We hope to be back someday!

Perfect Condo to stay a while at the beach!    Sep 05, 2015

review star


My two high school friends (from many years ago) and I decided to take a trip to the beach to be able to catch up and relax with one another. We left home 8 kids between the 3 of us and had an absolute blast! The condo is very well equipped and is decorated beautiful. The owners thought out many details to provide only the best for their renters. I love this condo and cannot wait to go back. Thanks for a wonderful time in your lovely condo!

Great Family Spot!    Jul 18, 2015

review star

Our family went to Gulf Shores for the first time this past July. In searching probably 100 properties over the course of a few months planning for our trip, I kept coming back to this location. We needed plenty of space for my family of 4 plus my in-laws and we weren't looking to stay an entire week. This property was the most reasonably priced, it didn't require a 7 day stay like most places, and it seemed like a great location. Since it was our first trip to Gulf Shores, I really had no idea what to expect. It ended up being the perfect spot for our family. The condo was beautiful, extremely clean, and well taken care of. It really felt like a home away from home. We were far enough down the peninsula that it felt like a secluded, secret place. Our family was able to set up on the beach (which was a short walk away) and leave our canopy up on the beach during our entire stay, feeling that it was completely safe. We were surrounded by other families and the beach wasn't overcrowded. It was perfect for my 5 year old and 2 year old to play in the sand and wade in the waves. The pool was also a great amenity. The condos are right by the Ft. Morgan ferry so we used that to do things across the bay as well as cutting off drive time on the way home back to Texas. Dianne was also such a friendly owner, providing lots of tips and suggestions for our stay that I otherwise would not have known about. It felt like I was talking to a friend when we spoke. She was great! Everyone in the family had such a wonderful and memorable time. I can't wait to go back and would recommend this property to anyone traveling to the Gulf Shores area.

Second Home    Jan 05, 2015

review star

My wife and I want to personally thank Tom and Dianne Walters for allowing us to share their beautiful Gulf Shores condo the past two winters. Their condo at the Dunes has become a second home for us. We never get tired of watching the ships coming into and out of Mobile Bay, or of the fantastic sunsets from the balcony. Each year the Walter's have consistently upgraded the furniture, appliances, counter tops and fixtures throughout the unit. The condo sits on the corner of the fifth floor, giving gorgeous views of the Gulf and of Mobile Bay. It over looks part of the Bon Secour Wildlife Sanctuary where birds can be heard singing, and you're within walking distance to historic Fort Morgan. The miles of sugar sand beach allows for endless walks, fishing from the shore, searching for the perfect sea shell, or just sitting in the sun watching and listening to the waves. We will be returning once again next January, and highly recommend to anyone seeking to find a relaxing get away, in a very well equipped and wonderfully maintained condo, away from the crowds found in town, and supported by owners who want to make sure that everything is right for their guests, to contact the Walters.

Delightful Home Away from Home    Jul 05, 2014

review star

My husband, 2 children, and friend couple stayed at this condo on July 5-12. It was such a sweet home away from home! The homeowners were very helpful from trouble-shooting my ignorance to offering suggestions for restaurants and fresh seafood. The condo was very roomy even for 6 people (2 of whom were pregnant) and had every possible essential for kitchen items. The furniture was so comfy and really felt like a home away from home.
Thank you so much for your reasonable prices and kindness!!!

A Wonderful Sisters Vacation    Jun 14, 2014

review star

We could not have been happier with our vacation condo. Everything about it was just as it was described. We fell in love with the view from the balcony, the fresh breezes from the ocean, the beautiful décor, and the overall cleanliness of the condo. We felt pampered and comfortable staying here. The owners provided a book with restaurant advertisements for us to pick places to eat and attractions to visit during our stay. All the amenities provided were outstanding including the internet access. We walked to the beach daily and enjoyed the pool too. There is no way anyone could say anything negative about this unit. We are eagerly looking forward to coming back next year.

Relaxing with Fabulous Views    Jun 15, 2013

review star

My family and I could not have been more pleased with The Dunes. Beautiful rooms, with wonderful views out of every window. Was able to fix meals with the fully equipped kitchen. The kids (age 12 & 13) loved the indoor/outdoor pool. It was so relaxing and felt like home... It was so peaceful and quiet but yet not to far away from all the fun, food, and shopping. Best vacation we have had!! And can't wait to do it again. We didn't want to leave. Missing the view from master bedroom...

Beautifully decorated with plenty of space. Very clean and many supplies and amenities that made the stay a breeze. Dianne was very helpful and easy to talk to -- more like working with a friend. Wonderful views!. Dianne was able to recommend a chair and tent rental company. The decor throughout was cheerful and tastefully done. We stayed here with five adults and had plenty of room. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking for great comfortable place to stay.

Beautiful Condo, Quiet Beach, WE WILL BE BACK!!!    Jul 21, 2012

review star

This condo is fantastic! We took our three children (ages 9, 6, and 3) to stay at the Dunes Beach Retreat, and we had a great time. Pick up your groceries on the way in, and you can stay here for the entire week and never leave. All items you would ever need stocked in the kitchen for cooking and grilling. The beds are comfortable, and so nice to have three bedrooms so you can spread out!!
The view from the condo is beautiful, and we enjoyed waking up in the morning looking out on the separate master bedroom balcony watching the waves roll in. It is a short walk to the white sand beaches, and the best thing is how open the beach is. Never a problem getting a spot right by the water, and we left our stuff down there while we went back up to the condo to eat lunch or rest.
Please check this place out...you will not be disappointed. The owners are great to work with, the communication and availability for questions is second to none.
Enjoy your stay at The Dunes Beach Retreat. We will be back!!!
