My favorite memory growing up was coming to this home every summer
"This is the house I grew up coming to every single summer growing up for our family reunions each year. I will never forget this house and the memories we made here. Out of all of the beach trips I’ve now been on, this house will forever be my favorite place to be even after all these years since being there. If you have the chance to take your family here, I encourage you to do so. I made some of my greatest memories here with my family that I will never forget"
"Our family of 12 had an excellent experience at the Shellcase property in Fort Morgan. The house was clean, colorful, convenient location to the beach. The property management company was well organized and had great communication."
"We had 5 families at this location and had plenty of space. The layout was nice and the beach was only a short walking distance. We also had the pool right across the street. It was great and we would stay here again."
"Tracie, we really appreciate the five star review! We love hearing from our guests! Bring the family and come back and stay with us again and make memories to last a lifetime!"
"House was perfect and had great space for everyone to spread out. They kitchen is well stocked. This was a short walk to the beach and had minimal traffic in the neighborhood. Only thing to consider is if you go out to plan ahead as it’s 18 miles from the main highway but that didn’t bother us and will definitely stay here again. "
"Woo hoo! We would love to have you and your family stay with us again! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Shellchase! We appreciate the five star review! We strive to make sure our guests are comfortable and happy with their stay. Come back and see us again!"
"We had a great time in Gulf shores. Great property and location. The home was big enough to accommodate all of our kids and grandkids. "
"Awesome!! Thank you for the five star review! That makes us happy! We are glad that Shellchase worked out for your family! I sincerely hope that lots of good memories were made and we look forward to having you back again! "
"Beautiful view and comfortable place to rest. We will definitely be back!"
"Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We completely agree with you, it's a great place to relax. We hope to host you again soon. "
"This property is in a great location. Its a short walk to the beach and the kids love the pools. The house has lots of room and plenty of seating space in the living room. The kitchen is very well stocked (better than most rentals) which is a big plus. We even had room for visitors for a couple of days. We had a great time and will be back."
"5 stars!! Woo hoo! We love hearing from our guests! I'm glad this home was a good fit for your family! This location is perfect for families, especially with the kiddos, who enjoy the pool as well as the beach! Call us and get this awesome home rented for next year! "
"They house was clean and in a great location. I love that the house was gated community. My family and I felt safe and secure."
"We are so glad that you chose to stay with us! Thank you for the review and we look forward to having you back again! "
"Great place to spend time with family and grandkids. Was a little surprised one room was connected to another room but was good for the family we had in those rooms. Repairs were ongoing at Shell Chase so some material was still in the parking area but no workers were there. We enjoyed the porches and spent many mornings and evenings on them. Have always been pleased with Sunset Properties selections so they remain on our list for family vacations."
"This house is roomy and comfortable. We had 9 staying here. It could have used a little better deep cleaning"
"We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Shellchase! Our properties undergo a deep clean every fall once the busy season is over. This has been a very busy season and housekeeping focuses mostly on making sure the house is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized in the areas most commonly used. Things such as dusting and cleaning underneath the furniture, cleaning baseboards, etc..are done with the deep clean. We look forward to seeing you again next time!"
"Shellchase was a perfect match for our vacation needs. It had plenty of room for everyone in our large family. It was very clean and well stocked. It was close to the beach with great access. Management responded quickly to all our needs. We would be excited to return someday."
"We love to hear such great reviews! I'm so glad that Shellchase met your needs and we look forward to booking this spacious home for you again soon!"
"We had a wonderful Family time here! The home was Beautiful and perfect for a large family 6 adults in 3 children and a Dog. So close to the Beautiful beach and Swimming pool was right behind us. Place was Pretty clean except for carpeting Would recommend cleaning Carpeting. I would definitely go back again! Sunset properties were so helpful they were the best I would definitely use them again! Tacky Jack's is walking distance and It has a little grocery store in it which was very helpful. The food Was pretty good. Ordered all our food from Walmart and picked up Curbside. My Husband and Sons when golfing at the closest golf course Kiva dunes.They said it was beautiful! Would recommend renting a Canopy at the beach it was So worth it! Planning to go back again! "
"Woohoo!! Lynne, you'll have to come see us again. We are so happy you enjoyed your house, and the beauty of Fort Morgan. We'll see you next time!"
"The property itself is very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to do some cooking during your stay. A nice quiet location away from busy Gulf Shores. The beach front is beautiful! "
"I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Shellchase! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay! Get your dates planned for your next visit and give us a call!"
"First time using VRBO to book a vacation rental. It was a very good experience. Love the properties secluded location and beach access. The neighbors were respectful and quiet. There are some local eateries and a general store nearby, but for variety you will need to travel 20 miles to Gulf Shores. I recommend shopping for breakfast, lunch and dinner food items at the Walmart or Rouses in Gulf Shores before checking in.
The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing elaborate meals. There's plenty of cookware, utensils and drinkware. The wonderful patios overlook the Gulf. The house was relatively clean...I did find some food under the sofa cushions. The master bedroom mattress could use updating. Every movement on this king size bed reverberated throughout the entire mattress. If you have a restless partner, be aware.
The only major flaw I found was the internet access. The wifi name and password provided by the property management company was different then the information posted on the fridge. The management company was unaware of the difference.
Overall, great property and terrific location for a peaceful getaway."
"Thank you for the review, Ira! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Shellchase! Thank you for bringing the internet information to our attention. Every now and then, changes do slip past us! Go ahead and plan your next visit to this little slice of paradise! "
"It was a nice house with plenty of space and a beach that was not over populated. WiFi was not the best, but that just means less time on phones during vacation. "
"Thank you for staying with us at Shellchase! I'm glad you enjoyed your time here on our beautiful beaches! Go ahead and get that next vacation booked!"
"Very pleasant "
"Thank you for the review! Come on back down and stay again!"
"Our family enjoyed our time here. The location was great and we enjoyed evening walks on the beach."
"Thank you, Tammy, for taking the time to tell us about your stay in Shellchase. We look forward to helping you book your next vacation!"
"Our family of 5 adults and 3 children loved our stay at Shellchase. It is an easy walk to the beach and very close to the pool, too. There is plenty of space for everybody indoors. We also loved to sit at the tables on the deck, however, one of them is aging and we felt that we could easily brake the table and/or the chairs. Overall, it was a great vacation!!"
"Melinda, thank you so much for leaving a review, and we are so glad you enjoyed our stay!"
"we had a great time on our trip to Fort Morgan, staying at the Shellchase. We booked the house with plans of two other families coming as well, but due to Covid-19, and extended missed work, they were not able to join. This house was more than enough space for the 5 of us and had just about everything we could have needed. The basement area with beach supplies was very handy! The only draw back was that the half bath off kitchen. Will continue to run if the handle isn't jiggled, but even that became a joke among the kids. All happy memories were created during this stay."
"Woohoo! Angela, we're so glad you had a great time! It had to be nice to have all that extra space. Happy memories are all you should ever make on vacation, let us know when you're ready to come back and make some more!"
"ShellChase is an exceptionally well located and well kept house in Fort Morgan. The view from the deck in amazing. The house is just steps to the dog friendly beach and pool. Two restaurants are within a 5 minute drive, along with small groceries and drinks. The property is minutes from the fort and the ferry. Gulf Shores is a 15 minute drive away.
The house is very well appointed, with loads of kitchen utensils and tons of room for all. The property was very clean.
A large storm knocked out the satellite tv and internet while we were there. Sunset responded quickly and restored service within a day. They were very easy to work with; we would definitely use Sunset again."
"Woo hoo! Thank you, Denise, for the detailed review of your stay in Shellchase! Sounds like your vacation was a success! Give us a call when you are ready to come back!"
"This is the best place we love fort morgan and shellchase was everything we hoped it would be and more cant wait till next year p.s we left a few toys for the next kids to enjoy."
"Thank you, Marjorie, for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Shellchase! Give us a call when you are ready to come back down!"
"The home was perfect for a multi Family - Family gathering. The pool made it especially nice for the little ones. The Beach itself is beyond beautiful. Lovely and quiet area. "
"Woo hoo! Vickie, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Shellchase, and thank you for the great review! We love our quiet, uncrowded beaches in Fort Morgan! I hope you will come back down and stay with us again!"
"Shell Chase was a beautiful place to stay and easily accommodated 9 of us plus a small dog.....very close to the beach.....the place is in a gated community toward the end of the island so it is approximately 25 minutes to civilization....the kids especially loves the pool and the ice cream truck that visited daily.......we found the house to be clean and stocked with what we needed......we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to getaway and relax with family and friends! "
"Yay! Thank you for the awesome review of your stay in Shellchase! Sounds like you enjoyed your stay! Being located away from the entertainment district is what brings a lot of our guests back year after year! If you just need some quiet beach time, Fort Morgan is the place to be! Come on back down and stay with us again!"
"Shellcase was excellent. Just a short walk to the beach, plenty of room for the family, and a very family oriented location. One of the best places I've ever been to. "
"That is awesome, Darrell! Thank you so much for giving feedback on your stay at Shellchase! We love Fort Morgan because is certainly is family oriented and uncrowded. I truly hope you and your family will be back!"
"Property was great for a large family. Nice layout. Short walk to beach and pool."
"Thank you, Donna, for leaving a review of your stay in Shellchase! I'm glad this home worked well for you and I hope you will come back down and stay with us again!"
"Shellchase was the perfect house for our vacation. The location is great for those looking for a quiet family vacation. The property was clean and well maintained. We will definitely book this property again!"
"Awesome! That is so good to hear! Give us a call when you are ready to come back!"
"The house that we chose was above our expectations. This year we had the immediate family and some friends so the sleeping capacity of 10 was needed. In addition to all of us there was plenty of room so that we all had our separate spaces.
The master suite was on the first floor so us more mature ones did not have to go up and down too many stairs.
There were TVs for everyone and DVD players for the grand children to watch videos, so that they were not bored for the few hours that we spent in the house.
Plenty of deck space and cool breezes as we overlooked the gulf from our back deck and the weather was absolutely perfect the entire stay.
We had an easy walk to the beach and also to the pool. The little ones really enjoyed the pool.
All in all a really GREAT vacation."
"Awesome!! Sounds like a perfect vacation! And isn't that a beautiful view from the back deck? I hope you and your family will come back down and stay with us again!"
"Noise next door from children running up and down stairs was only complaint. It is not your fault parents cannot control their children."
"I am sorry about the disruption during your stay. I do hope the rest of your stay was enjoyable. Come on back down and stay with us again soon!"
"YAY! That is a great description!!"
"Very relaxing week at the beach. Plenty of room for everyone. The beach was a short walk away and the pool was right around the corner. "
"Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We are so glad you enjoyed our visit to Gulf Shores!!"
"This is our second time staying in this rental and we love it!! The size and location works perfectly for us. We are looking forward to going again next year!"
"Yay!! We love our repeat guests! Shellchase is a beautiful home and the location is great! We look forward to having you again next year!"
"Fantastic. We were supposed to be in Tampa but a hurricane had other ideas. We made the reservation days before showing up. The house was great. Only five of us so we had plenty of room. A nice secluded beach but near enough to a few restaurants and a short drive back to Gulf shores for supplies. "
"Robert, we so enjoyed having you! We were not happy about the circumstances, but so glad you were still able to enjoy a trip away!!"
"There were 3 families in the house with plenty of room. This house is perfect! The only thing I recommend is a TV in the bedroom with the queen bed. We will stay here again."
"Yay, Daniel so good to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us!! We always appreciate feedback from our guests!"
"This was the perfect get away for our family. This home was spacious and had all of the room needed for our family. It is doggy friendly and all of the cul-de-sacs make it a great place for walking. The beach is within walking distance from the house. And the pool is right on the corner. "
"Gary, it IS such a great location!! So glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope you'll come out and see us again! "
"Yipeeee! Deborah, you just can't beat "great" so glad to hear this!"
"Very nice. All that we expected."
"Whoop whoop! Meeting or exceeding expectations that's what we like to hear!"
"We visited this rental property for Spring Break with another family and loved it! There was 4 adults and 5 kids. The location was perfect and the house fit us all perfect. It had everything we needed. Sunset Properties was very helpful with us anytime we had a question or needed something. They even went out of their way when we asked if they would have life jackets we could borrow and went to pick some up and brought them to us. While we were there, one of the air conditioners went out and they had it replaced within less then a day. We have rented from many companies all over and this was one of our best experiences. And the beach was BEAUTIFUL! We would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone. "
"Whoop! Whoop! That's what we love to hear from our guests! We hope you can come back to visit again soon!"
"Great stay. Awesome views of the gulf. unit very well stocked with everything needed. New TVs. Comfortable seating.
Management and owners very good with fixing anything needed. "
"So good to meet you and Linda, we will miss you next year, and look forward to you coming back soon!"
"We enjoyed our stay at Shell Chase very much! The house is well laid out, ample parking and a quick walk to the beach.
"Overall a great place. It is listed as a 5 bedroom, however, one room is really like a toddler room off one of the other bedrooms. The weather had been very windy and there was quite a bit of trash outside. It took several calls to get the main tv to was missing a cable. Kitchen was well stocked. Home itself was very clean. The pool was not in service all week. This is one of the deciding factors on staying at this property. I am sure spring break weeks are known to all property owners."
"This was our first time in the Gulf Shores area and we loved our stay. Shell Chase was an awesome rental, beautifully decorated, clean and seems new. Location to beach and pools is super. We had a total of 4 houses rented within our family and this was by far the best one. Will definitely rent Shell Chase again if in the area. "
"Great place and clean. As others mentioned, the panty was locked so had to keep food all over the counter, not ideal but not a big deal either. Could have used a few pots that had lids in the kitchen but we managed. Beds were nice and comfy. Across the street from the pool and very short walk to the beach. Outdoor hose to clean sand off the feet and charcoal BBQ, though lacked BBQ utensils. Management company was great and easy to work with. We will be back!"
"WAS VERY NICE AND EVERTYING WENT WAS NICE ANC CLEAN. "
"It was a nice home and accomadated our group well. A few things need attention kitchen sink had a leak underneath. Commode in lower bathroom in lower bedroom ran a long time after flushing. Nothing we couldn't live with tho."
"We were very comfortable at Shell Chase. There were a few requests when we arrive and the mgmt and owner made sure the requests were taken care of immediately. It has a beautiful view of the gulf. The staff was very supportive and checked to see if we needed anything when we went for our mail. The rental was well equipped and everything working. Very stylish and sunny. Great beds! Downside is the distance to town, but well worth the extra drive time. We have rented this unit for next year.
"Shellchase was a great 'home away from home'. Had most of everything we needed. Clean & plenty of space for our group. It is definitely not new & could use a few upgrades & general repair but all in all a great stay."
"The house was great. Well maintained and clean. Could have used more seating on the patio. "
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fort Morgan. The property is close to the pool which seems well maintained and clean and is within easy walking distance of the beach.
The patio chairs on the back deck are rusted through and need to be replaced. However, there are folding chairs in the unit that we used and brought in each night.
The washer and dryer are extremely small for a family of 10 (stackables).
The kitchen is okay -- we had problems with the refrigerator staying cool enough. The right front burner on the stove was not working -- we notified the management company and feel certain they will address it. The lack of a pantry in this unit was inconvenient. When you bring groceries for this many people it would be great to have a place to store them.
The living area has plenty of seating for a large group. The back deck is well covered and large enough for 10+ people.
The cell service in the area is spotty at best. The land line at this unit was not working, so getting in touch with our family staying in another unit here was difficult.
This unit was clean, well kept, and in good repair. (We had a problem with a board on the walkway, called the management and it was replaced very quickly -- impressive!)"
"Thank you for taking time to write a review of ShellChase. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in this cute beach property. The beach chairs that were in bad shape have been removed and replaced and the other maintenance issues have been addressed. When we did our deep clean of the house we condensed the kitchen dishes and pots and pans to make room for a pantry area, hopefully this will make the kitchen more user friendly for our guests. The cell phone service should be much better as there are two towers being installed on property and should be working by end of year. We have also addressed the land line issue with the owner. We strive to make all of our properties perfect for our guests and we are so glad that your stay was call us soon to book your next vacation in Fort Morgan. Sincerely, Sunset Properties Staff"
"Accommodations were more than adequate, was clean and comfy. Outdoor furniture needs an upgrade, chairs and umbrellas were broken or in poor shape, lack of storage in kitchen, pantry was locked. Overall we were very satisfied. "
"Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are glad to hear you were satisifed with your stay in Shellchase. Thank you for letting us know about the outdoor furniture, we have notified the owner so he can replace as needed. Sorry you had issues with storage in the kitchen, the locked pantry is owner's personal storage and not something we can change but we will organize the kitchen better so ther is more cabinet space for storage. We hope you will call us again to book your next vacation to our little paradise. Sincerely, Sunset Properties Staff"

We went down for a 4 day fishing trip and had an absolutely WONDERFUL time. Navy Cove couldn't have been a better setting for the trip - the condo came with an electric boat lift, plenty of bait fish there in the marina that you can cast net for or catch on an ultralight, and quick access to red fish, jack crevalle, red snapper, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, trout, etc etc. The condo was very nice and had one of the best views in the complex. It's an end unit with 2 balconies overlooking Bon Secour & Mobile Bay.E.DeLana

Owner Review -
We would never use any other company to rent our house, because the people at Sunset Properties take a personal interest in our property. All of these little things help the bottom line. And, the service--it is unbelievable. .Mrs.Vaughan
Working with Sunset Properties -
I have vacation properties in Gulf Shores, and they are all with Sunset Properties. Although I live close by the job of renting, managing, promoting plus handling the maintenance and cleaning in order to maximize my rental income, takes a lot more time and effort than one person can oversee. They are a fantastic company.A

We stayed at Dream and what a dream it was. This is our 3rd time renting with Sunset and at this point I see no point in renting anywhere else. No drama. The property was awesome. Location was ridiculous. We can't wait wait to come back.S.Nelson

This was our 5th year, I believe, coming to Fort Morgan. I discovered Sunset Properties that first year and have used them every year and never looked back. They take care of you, have great customer service, and some of the best prices around. They treat you like family and make any wrongs (if any) right. You will not go wrong choosing Sunset Properties, give em a try, and if you enjoy the area like we do you will be back year after year like us.J.Williams

We had the privilege of working with realtor, Shelly Dzwonkowski, on our recent purchase of a condo for our 2nd home in Gulf Shores. Shelly is an awesome realtor, trusting and a knowledgable person of the area. Her professionalism was outstanding and she went so much further than we ever expected to make sure everything was covered and we understood every aspect of the property. Highly recommend Shelly.L.Christofferson
