We have been vacationing at the Alabama Gulf Coast for over 35 years. Our kids grew up going there and now we meet up with their families there. We enjoy being "out" from town. Morgantown was ideal and Sunshine on My Shoulders was very nice.
I would recommend renting a golf cart just to ease the trek to the beach, especially if you are entertaining your small grandchildren.
I would consider staying here again.

Manager's Response

Hi Butch,

Thank you for taking time to provide a review for Sunshine on my Shoulders. This is truly a wonderful property. We are glad you were able to gather your family here and make new memories. We look forward to hosting you again when you return to Gulf Shores in the future.

All the best,
The Relax on the Beach Team

This was our first time visiting the Fort Morgan area. There were six adults and five kids five and under in our party. The community is nice and there are two pools, which provide good options for groups. The smaller pool was closest to the beach and walking distance from the house. The beach access was doable, but with such a large party we decided to rent a golf cart. The boardwalk is pretty long in order to access the beach, so be prepared for a bit of a walk. Overall, there was plenty of space for everyone in the home since there are king beds in 3 rooms and plenty of room in the bunk room for the kids. The house was in decent condition, although you could tell it had some wear and tear and needed a paint job inside. It was mostly clean when we arrived but had to wash some sheets and coverlets that had visible stains. They should provide a vacuum for guest use – sweeping up constant sand with a broom is not enjoyable! The kitchen was prepped with all the basics. There are one or two options close by for food and a small market. I’ve read in prior reviews that the bugs are awful in the area, but we did not have any issues. We did stay in May, so with the land topography, I could imagine issues later in the summer with bugs. We did see a harmless garden snake in the pool at the front of the neighborhood. Although we still prefer the clearer and calmer beach water on 30A, we had a great experience at this home Fort Morgan.

Manager's Response

We enjoyed our stay at Sunshine on my Shoulders. The house was adorable, clean and had plenty of room. We loved the back deck with the peek a boo view of the water. We wished we had a hose to clean our Beach equipment off at the end of the day. There was an outdoor shower but it made it hard to clean things without having a hose. I would also love to have had a better broom and or electric vacuum. Overall our stay was amazing and we had a great time! Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Hi Maureen and thanks so much for the great feedback! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we will pass along your comments to the owner. We hope to see you again soon!

We booked another rental home that was filthy and unsafe when we arrived. Jen immediately put us in Sunshine on My Shoulders and what a difference. The home was immaculately clean, appointed and well located. THEN...SHE STAYED IN TOUCH TO MAKE SURE WE WERE OK!!! YOU CANNOT TO BETTER WITH EITHER THIS HOME OR JEN, WE HAD A WONDERFUL STAY AND WILL COME BACK AGAIN!!!

Manager's Response

Robert, thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience with Relax on the Beach and a very happy belated birthday to your daughter. Nothing is more important to us than the satisfaction of our guests and we could not be happier to hear that Jen was able to help make sure that your beach vacation was a great one. Sunshine on My Shoulders is a fabulous home and we are so pleased to hear that you agree. We look forward to your next beach vacation!

This home is beautiful and was a great location to spend with my family. Each couple had their own room and bathroom and the kids loved having their own room. The flooring, bathrooms, and furnishings were all very nice and up to date. We took our golfcart, which made going to the beach a breeze. It may be a bit of a walk for some but there are reasonable golf cart rentals that will deliver.

Thank you. We're so glad you enjoyed your family vacation!

My girlfriends and I stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday. The house is even better in person. Everything is up-to-date and ready to roll for your beach vacation. The walk to the beach is not bad at all, but depending on how much stuff you have, it might be a good idea to bring a little wagon. The location is about 20min from Orange Beach, but there are a few restaurants close by. We hit up the Sassy Crab (2miles from the house) on the first night for a chill dinner and it was such a cool little hole in the wall with great food and even better people. They were doing Karaoke on Thursday Night! I'm really happy I found this place. So, if you're looking for a spacious place for you and your 7 friends, this house is the ticket!

Manager's Response

Wow! Thank you so much for this response. We are so glad that you had such a wonderful trip. We would love to have you stay with us again. If there is anything we can do, please let us know!

Overall all was good. Size good with 4 BR & 4 BA. Comments - not enough towels, sleeps 12-13, had 9 towels. Called but did not receive additional towels. Dishwasher had problem that was taken care of same day. Walk to beach longer than expected. With kids and gear closer to 8-10 minutes. Water pressure in showers very low, don't know if water system or shower head problem.

Manager's Response

Hi Lea and thanks for the review! The water pressure likely a supply issue but we have forwarded to our maintenance department to have it checked out. We hope to see you again soon!

We stayed a week at sunshine on my shoulders. The house is beautiful. We rented a golf cart to get to the beach and back because it is a little farther than we would prefer to walk. The beds were very comfortable and the furniture was nice. We did have a problem with the house not being clean when we checked in though. There are also NO cleaning supplies and only a very small broom so getting sand off the floors was very difficult. The back porch was AMAZING!!! We would sit out there every morning with coffee... but bring citronella candles because the bugs do get pesky. We had an issue with one bathroom but maintenance was there to fix it very fast. The only other thing I could think of is there is no water pressure in the master shower. There is also an ice cream truck that runs each day that we loved so much! Overall we had an amazing stay. We plan to be back next year but hopefully closer to the beach.

Manager's Response

Jennifer, thanks for taking the time to write a review of Sunshine on My Shoulders and we are so pleased to hear you had an amazing stay! There should be a broom in the house, we will make sure it is replaced. And we love the ice cream truck too!

Beautiful home with plenty of room. The beds were comfortable and so was the living room furniture.There were plenty of rocking chairs on the spacious back deck and it was shaded as well. This was the absolute best house we have ever stayed in! We were thrilled to find a nice grill and plenty of beach chairs in the storage room. I wish it was closer to town but we loved it there!

Manager's Response

Micki, thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and we couldn't agree more! Sunshine on My Shoulders is a very popular home for very good reason. While we are happy to hear that you were pleased to find a grill and beach chairs, we must point out for future guests that that owner's closet should have been locked and those items are for the owners' personal use when they visit. While we don't provide beach chairs, we are able to provide information on rental companies.

My family of 8, my parents and my sister in law all stayed here and had plenty of room. The house is beautiful and updated. The AC wasn’t working properly on the first day and the company noticed the sensor and fixed it before I could even mention it. We were so close to the beach! I know it’s Alabama, but we weren’t expecting mosquitos so bad in late April. Couldn’t really use the pool they were so bad. Didn’t really affect us at the house unless it was early morning or late evening though. I would definitely stay here again.

Manager's Response

Happy that you enjoyed your family get-together! Sadly we do have mosquitoes, even in April. Bug spray works wonders, though! We'll look forward to seeing you all again.

The house was great and accommodating for large families. If you stay at this house be stocked with everything before you get there as it is about 15 miles from town. I have stayed at several VRBO style properties and this one was the least stocked as far as trash bags, spices just little things. We always plan for these things and bring them expecting to leave them but this house had nothing like you’d normally expect.

Manager's Response

Jerry, thanks so much for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay and we are happy to hear that you were pleased with the house. Yes, Fort Morgan is about 15 minutes from Gulf Shores but for future reference, Sassy Bass has a well stocked market and Dollar General has a great selection as well.

"Sunshine on my Shoulders" was a great place to stay over the holiday break. The house had four bedrooms and four bathrooms so no issues with waiting for the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and I didn't yearn for my bed at home within a few days. The beach has sugar sand and was a short walk from the house. I liked the location, more secluded, and not a lot of bright "night" lights. There is a lot of history in the area so on rainy days we went exploring. Fort Morgan was very interesting as was the battleship USS Alabama in Mobile Bay. We also visited the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. If you like seafood there are a lot of great restaurants and local fish mongers so you can ship home some of the fresh local fish. We had never experienced chargrilled oysters until visiting Gulf Shores and we loved them. We would definitely go back.

Manager's Response

Grilled Oysters are a staff favorite at Relax On The Beach. So glad to hear you enjoyed the area, the food and most importantly Sunshine on My Shoulders!

This home is beautiful, spacious and comfortable! It accommodated our family of 10 with room for more. The deck provides relaxing as well as eating space, not to mention the ocean view! The short walk to the beach was actually nice and we were able to enjoy the water even in November. Theres ample parking space and that area also has access to washing off sand. There are lots of fun activities and excellent restaurants in nearby Gulf Shores. We look forward to returning to this lovely beach side retreat!

The house was beautiful and just as pictured and the beds were super comfortable. The house was very well equipped with every kitchen gadget you could need and an XL washer and drier. All of the furniture was clean and gave enough room for whatever you needed. The porch was nice and roomy but there isn’t a view. There is large overgrown bushes in the way. Be prepared to walk to get to the beach, but it’s really not bad. The only thing that was less that desirable was the construction. They were playing catch up from the hurricane and started at 7 Am one morning and didn’t stop until well after midnight. There were many trucks blocking the roadways but we never had any issues with the workers.
This is definitely somewhere we would stay again!

Manager's Response

We're glad you enjoyed our home! The good news is, at the rate they're going, those homes should be finished in time for you to enjoy a little more peace and quiet at our home the next time you come to visit!

UPDATE: The construction was completed in the fall and no longer is a disturbance to those staying in Sunshine on My Shoulders.

A very new and beautiful home, property owners very helpful and kind. However some items I would have preferred knowing prior to our visit are as follows:
1) Beach access is a 10 minute walk due to no cut through to the street the home is on. Highly suggest the Morgantown planners look into this, as this will end up decreasing rentals of second and third row homes.
2) Marsh area adjacent to home causes a significant bug issue. Bring citronella candles or spray if wanting to enjoy the deck after peak sun hours.
3) No enclosed outdoor shower, or hose attachment for rinsing off sand. Recommend property owners add to be more accommodating to keeping the home clean.

Again really nice home. Just a few drawbacks for the overall experience.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much. Not all homes can be beach front, but we do have a bunch of beach front homes if you'd like to be closer to the water the next time you come down. Bugs are a fact of life in the south, but as you said, there are remedies to keep them at bay. But overall, we're glad you enjoyed your stay.

This was a fantastic home. We enjoyed 5 nights. It was a short walk to the beach from the house. Everything in the house was super nice, big fridge, nice washer and dryer and lots of counter space. Plenty of seating at the table and bar stools for the counter top plus a table on the porch. There was a storage closet on ground level so beach things did not have to be hauled upstairs each day. Rooms had lots of space. Everything was in great condition. No problems at all and would for sure rent again!

Beautiful house with lots of space. We had 6 adults and 8 kids and had plenty of space. Plenty of beds and it was nice having a bathroom in each bedroom. The kitchen was huge with a large dining table and 8 barstools at the counter.
