the rental property was nice. off the beaten path and relaxing. the home works well for a family of 3-4 and is good for dogs. i only went with my 4 legged fur child and the top deck is awesome. i do wish they had nicer furniture on the top deck to really use the space better. i did leave a few small items there and called after i left and have not heard back so i am unhappy that they don't follow up but it i my fault for leaving my stuff. all in all i would recomend this unit and company but i would not use them in the future cause they did not offer me the same price for this trip next year as stated on all there information.

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.

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.

Beach access was across the road

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!

Not bay front, bay view. Pictures very deceiving. Can see directly onto neighbors deck. Stove needs to be recalibrated or changed. Both grills downstairs need to be tossed.

Beautiful sunsets. Will not recommend or stay here again. 2

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT RENTING THIS PROPERTY. Property was dirty and unsafe. No outdoor lighting. Floors dirty and had not even been broom swept. Trash under beds, under furniture and in corners and along floor moldings. Dirty ceiling fans, had not been cleaned. Dirt and trash on top of refrigerator. Mold growing on windows behind curtains. Door locks did not work. Spoke with two people at Sunset Properties about the problems, sent photos to Sunset Properties, neither cared about the problems. Have disputed all charges with my cc company. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT RENTING THIS PROPERTY.

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!

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.

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 had the best time and loved staying at the Boathouse.
It was perfect for us.
Very clean and very comfortable.

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.

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.
Brian K. June 1, 2018
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. We’ll be back!

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.

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.

From check in to check out, great place; beautiful to have a relaxing vacations.

We had a great stay and the accommodations were excellent-We will go back

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.
Harold N. October 8, 2016
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!
Joy L. November 1, 2016
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 had a wonderful time at the boathouse. It has a great view of the bay and a super top deck. The amenities were good.

The Boathouse was lovely. We especially enjoyed the rooftop deck.
Katrina F. January 16, 2017
We had an amazing time!!!!
John E. June 12, 2017
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!
Sarah S. June 4, 2017
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.
Alexandria M. March 20, 2017
This is a beautiful home. The location was great. The house was very comfortable and we cannot wait to revisit.
Frederick F. May 25, 2017
My family and I had an amazing time and will definitely be returning.

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!

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.

The management was very friendly and helpful. But the first time to fort morgan and our last. No place to fish. The water was a dirty black color. Nothing in that area is manicured or kept as far as the yards or the beach. All around the house was sea oaks or cane or something higher than our heads. A tiny path to get to the water.only 1 store within 17 miles. The house was ok.could have been a little better cleaned but ok. I had a rental house for 13 years and it is very hard to get a good housekeeper but I have never known a house to furnish so little. We had to take so many things that I thought all rentals furnished. Maybe because there is so many fees now the owner has a hard time coming out with a profit. We had to buy a piture to put tea in, dish soaptoilet paper etc. I would never stay there again and would not Recommend it.

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.

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.

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.
Anonymous December 29, 2017
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!

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.
Lisa J. June 10, 2016
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!
