Playful Pelican - 2 BR / 2BA, Pet Friendly, Uncrowded White Sand Beaches

Located in: Gulf Shores
It’s time to get away from it all! The Playful Pelican is located in Fort Morgan which is one of the quieter areas of the Alabama Gulf Coast, and one of the few areas where dogs are welcome. This two bedroom, two bath home is a mere two minute stroll to the sugar white beaches with no roads to cross and no traffic to negotiate – the sand and surf await you!

The Playful Pelican is approximately 1,100 square feet and features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a spacious kitchen with new appliances and granite countertops. The kitchen has an open floor plan and adjoins the comfortable living room. There are plenty of windows offering beautiful water views. The open living room is equipped with a DVD player and a new 49" flat screen SMART HDTV, complete with a full package of Hulu Live programming. In addition, there is free WI-FI Internet service, and a full complementof books and board games are available.

The private Master bedroom offers a new king sized bed, its own 40” flat screen HDTV, a full bath, new end tables and chest of drawers, and a comfortable sitting area. It is a peaceful place to relax and read a good book.The Master bathroom has been recently updated with a fresh look and beachy décor.

The second bedroom has a twin and full bunk bed, as well as a queen size bed. There is a new bedside table and tall chest of drawers, and plenty of room for the kids. They will love the turtles! A full bathroom is located off the hallway just a few steps away.

The Playful Pelican has been recently updated, freshly painted, and tastefully decorated throughout. You will love the beachy decor. We recently installed beautiful porcelain tile flooring throughout and all new 3-panel Craftsman style interior doors. There is also a new Maytag washer and dryer conveniently located in the hallway closet.
Outside, new stairs and deck railings have been recently installed. Also, there are all new windows, and new screens which allow for ample fresh, clean air offered up by the gulf breezes.

The large covered porch has views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay - the perfect place to unwind after a great day at the beach. Sitting on the front porch swing and viewing the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay at the same time is awesome.

In addition, there is an outdoor shower, picnic table, Weber charcoal grill, sitting area, and concrete parking area under the house.You will find several beach chairs, umbrellas, carts, games, toys, buckets, shovels, boogie boards, and some fishing nets, along with many other items in the storage shed.

And you don’t have to leave your house broken and well-behaved dog at home. Bring your dog on vacation with you! The Playful Pelican is pet friendly and even has two sizes of canvas dog crates available for use.

The Playful Pelican has their own cleaning technician/inspector and you will arrive to a clean house with fresh linens, bath towels, toilet paper, paper towels, and other amenities. We also supply 8 beach towels for your convenience.

Fort Morgan, unlike Gulf Shores, is known for less traffic, less noise, and fewer people on the beach – even during the peak summer season. Why spend your vacation packed in like a sardine when the Fort Morgan beaches offer a chance for real peace and quiet? Grocery stores and restaurants are just down the road.

The Playful Pelican is located just twenty minutes from Gulf Shores, and less than five minutes from the Mobile Bay Car Ferry, which offers year round service across the bay to Dauphin Island and Mobile, Alabama. You may want to add a visit to Fort Morgan Historic State Park. It is adjacent to the ferry launch, and is approximately a mile from the Playful Pelican.

In addition, Tacky Jacks restaurant is located just a short distance away with dining, cocktails and Thursday night karaoke. There is also the Sassy Bass Restaurant about five miles away with great 'catch of the week' dining.

The Gulf Shores Yacht Club and Marina is less than a mile away. You can rent boats or charter fishing trips. Speckled trout, white trout, redfish, flounder, sheepshead, tripletail, bluefish, red snapper, pompano and king mackerel are common in the Gulf Shores area.

If you dream of getting away from the pressures of everyday life, the nature and serenity of Fort Morgan is just what the doctor ordered. Stroll along beach and enjoy the sugar white sand and salty air. If you walk towards the point of the peninsula at dusk, from the surfside or the bayside, you will see the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.
