About

Turtle Dunes is a beautiful, updated beachfront home located in the exclusive, gated community of The Dunes. Lovingly updated and restored by the new owners, this home is a showstopper! Simply put, it just doesn't get any better than this. The spectacular views are reason enough to stay here but the owners have given the interior a total face lift. And, this unique home comes equipped with a private elevator which makes it ideal for anyone with mobility issues. Because every day isn't a beach day, you'll love the access to a community pool and hot tub. There is even a gym available for your use.

Ample seating on the spacious deck allows everyone to take in those spectacular sunsets or just sit and watch and listen to the sound of the waves. An oversized dining table is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the awesome view so even if you dine indoors, you'll still be "on the beach". This beach front home has five bedrooms and five and half baths. Each bedroom has its own private bath. The open common area features a living room with hide a bed, a dining table that seats 14, with room for 4 more at the breakfast bar and a well-equipped kitchen. You will be able to prepare whatever feast strikes your fancy without leaving the beach.

Two of the five bedrooms are on the main level and both have King beds. Upstairs, are 2 bedrooms with King beds and balcony access, a sitting area with a futon and balcony access and a bunk room with one set of Full over Full bunks and one set of Twin over Twin bunks.

The house was clean and comfortable. The management -Jen_ is so easy to work with and responsive. I'll rent with this company again. The only complaint were some nails sticking up on the deck.

Manager's Response

Thanks Laura! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Turtle Dunes. And we think Jen is pretty special too! We've already requested to have those deck nails addressed - thanks for bringing to our attention. We hope to see you again soon.

Turtle Dunes was the perfect property for our family vacation. The customer service from the rental property during the reservation process through check-out was excellent. The property was exactly as described and pictured on the website. Toys and games in the house were a plus. The large balcony with chairs and umbrellas to help block the sun was perfect for watching the sun rise and set each day. We were even lucky enough to see 2 pods of dolphins playing right in front of us.

The elevator was a huge plus for an older family member and having 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor was perfect so stairs weren't an issue for him. Love that each bedroom has it's own bathroom (even the room with the bunkbeds).

To get to the beach, you have to use the boardwalk which is not that far but could be challenging for anyone who has mobility issues.

We did not go to the community pool, hot tub or tennis so I cannot review any of those areas.

The location was perfect for our family. On the first night after checking in and unloading, we didn't feel like cooking so we went to Tacky Jack's which was right across the main entrance and had a great dinner (great fried shrimp, royal reds and my sister said their burger was really good as well). There is also a Dollar General and Sassy Bass Marketplace with a liquor store not too far away for any last minute items you may have forgotten.

Some of our family live in Mobile so we caught the Mobile Bay Ferry back home since the day and weather was so beautiful. Probably saved 30 minutes off our driving time.

I would definitely recommend Turtle Dunes and we have earmarked it for future rentals ourselves.

Manager's Response

Frances, thank you for the detailed review! Turtle Dunes really was designed with large groups and families in mind and it sounds like it was a perfect fit for your family. The elevator is a real bonus for anyone with mobility issues and the views can't be beat. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your next visit!

It is a beautiful home with wonderful views. My daughter rented a home 3 minutes down the road for her wedding. So the home was big enough to accommodate family from NC and us. We watched dolphins every morning!! We visited Fort Morgan and enjoyed the rich history. A short drive to gulf shores and dinner venues. Tacky Kacks is just across the road and has good food and service.

Manager's Response

Thanks for the positive feedback Natasha! We totally agree, Turtle Dunes is everything you could ask for in a beach home. We hope to see you again soon!

We had 5 couples stay at the house for 5 days. Very quiet and peaceful. House was clean and very well kept. The ice maker and elevator were nice extras. Beach access was very close. We didn't have to long of a journey to the beach with our gear. We went into Gulf Shores to eat a couple of times because there are not a lot restaurants close by. The grocery store was also in Gulf Shores. Kitchen was good size and we did use the outside charcoal grill also. All in all it was a very nice place and great time. Internet access wasn't great. Very intermittent. Plenty of parking and the deck was huge with lots of chairs. We will definitely rent again.

Manager's Response

Hi Carl and thank you for the kind words! Turtle Dunes is a relatively new addition to our program and we could not be more pleased with the recent updates. We look forward to your return visit!

Beautiful location. Beautiful view of ocean. Perfect for families. Well stocked kitchen with amenities for meal preparation. Comfortable beds and adequate space for adult extended families having space. Only need is to repair locking hardware on balconies.

Manager's Response

Hi Luther! We are so pleased that you enjoyed Turtle Dunes. We absolutely love what the new owners have done with this home. We hope to see you again soon! (We have already send the note about the hardware to our maintenance department)

Our house was great.. very big and clean. The location was a little far from the town which was inconvenient. However, it was far enough so the population on the beach wasn’t overcrowded. The only complaint I have is when I called the manager to ask for help with the air conditioning he wasn’t very helpful. We had two small children and an infant so it was hot and very unprofessional. The rest of our stay was great.

Manager's Response

Hi Shelby! Thanks for the feedback and we are so pleased to hear your stay was great! Yes, Turtle Dunes is fabulous and has had a recent major face lift and many guests prefer being in Fort Morgan, away from the crowds yet a short drive into town. Regarding the air conditioning, as was explained by our technician, you had the thermostat set at 67 degrees which caused the units to freeze up. We post signs in all of our property thermostat advising guests that this could happen if the thermostat is set below 72 degrees. We find that most people are quite comfortable with the 72 degree setting. We hope you'll return, perhaps at a time when the weather is a bit cooler.
