"Our family absolutely LOVED the Spunky Sandpiper! We felt right at home when we walked in the door. The house was very clean & decorated so cute! The spacious rooms were amazing. We enjoyed the back porch view of the bay. We hope to be back next summer!"
"2nd time staying there and loved it. Close to beach. The home is very clean and homey. However, I wish there was a pool or spa. Other than that, it was was a great place to stay!! "
"Thank you, Janet, for the review! We love our repeat guests! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in this cozy, little home and we look forward to seeing you again soon! "
"We loved the location of the house. It was a little smaller than expected but overall we had enough space for everyone. If your cooking for a lot of people, bring cookware to do so. There are 2 charcoal grills for use. Easy walk to the beach and loved that my dog could come with us. They need better lighting on the steps leading up to the house. The pull out beds in the couches were very comfortable as well as the king size beds. "
"Erica, thank you so much for the review of your stay in Spunky Sandpiper! We appreciate the feedback on the cookware and the lighting. This helps us to know what is lacking in our properties. We look forward to seeing you again!"
"The rental experience was simple, seamless and without issue. The house was better than described. The pictures don’t do it justice. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of comfortable seating in the living area. The area is exactly what we were looking for within a short walk to the beach! We loved it and will be back soon! "
"Yay!! Thank you so much, Ann, for the great review! We would LOVE to book this home for you again! Spunky Sandpiper could be your home away from home! Please call us directly to make your reservations. As a loyal guest, we do offer discounts with your third stay with us! "
"Pros: Very spacious, plenty of room for everyone, extra seating provided, well stocked with kitchen appliances, king beds and bunk beds very comfortable and sleep well, hot water lasted forever for lots of shower. There is not any negative things I can say about the inside except the pullout couches mattresses were very uncomfortable but those are never very comfortable anyway. The inside was fantastic! Bay and ocean were in walking distance and there were chairs and a wagon provided. Two outdoor showers and a water hose with awesome pressure for cleaning all the sand out of everything. The decks were large and gave a great view of the bay.
Cons:When we arrived someone was mowing the lawn so we rode around for a little bit but finally came back and started to unpack. The person was there for an hour mowing the yard which I feel like is something that should have been done before we arrived. There was also a dead animal smell that was awful for the first several days we were there which turned out to be one of the two units trash cans sitting at the road. Around the house water was standing.”, especially in the backyard,so make sure to bring bug spray. There is only one porch light and that is on the front porch so we’re weren’t able to enjoy the back porch at night. The lighting under the house was not sufficient enough for the space. Our son tripped over a drain pipe sticking up out of the concrete twice and hurt his hand because the lighting was so bad at that end. We finally just surrounded it with stuff so nobody would get hurt again.
Conclusion: Inside fantastic!! Outside could use improvements and sufficient lighting. We had a great time despite the things I mentioned above! It was so great being so close to the bay and the ocean. So, great location for bay and beach plus Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island ferry is right down the road! FYI: closest dollar store is 20 minutes away. 40 minutes round trip. "
"Michelle, thank you so much for the detailed review! I apologize for the issues you mentioned. Good help is hard to find, so the gentleman that was mowing had spent the morning cleaning some of our properties, so he only had the late afternoon to mow. We will soon be doing a deep clean and an inventory on this house, so the items you mentioned will be addressed. Thank you for bringing these to our attention. I hope you will come back and stay with us again!"

"A wonderful house between the beach and the bay. The house was totally updated, clean, comfortable, cool, quiet and outfitted with everything a family needs. The beaches were clean, uncrowded and wonderful. The weather cooperated within its ability. We were close enough and far enough away. The air was clean. The locals were friendly, welcoming and very helpful with information and directions. We totally enjoyed enjoyed our time and really didn't want to leave. To that end, we have already booked for next year. We appreciated and fully utilized the available extras from Xplorie. The programs were varied and were enjoyed greatly. Thank you Sunset Properties for a much needed and enjoyed getaway."

"Thank you, Don, for taking the time to leave a review of your stay in Spunky Sandpiper! So glad you were pleased with your home! I hope you come back and stay with us next winter!"
"Overall, the experience was positive. There needed to be some attention to detail. For instance, we had to replace the batteries in all of the remotes with some not even having all batteries installed. Some items didn't even have a remote (i.e., Blu Ray player). Two of the burners on the stove did not work and while the place was generally clean, air freshness would have helped provide a better atmosphere."
"Sorry the remotes were a pain, and we had to replace the batteries during your stay. Thank you for letting us know about the stove, we found that the electrical coils was not plugged into the receptacle correctly. "
"I could not be happier with our stay. The house was immaculate. The proximity to the beach and the bay made our trip even better since we like fishing. I love the buffer from the busyness of the city. I hope to return!"
"Yay!! Kelly, we are so glad you had an enjoyable stay! We would absolutely love to have you back, just let us know when!"
"We enjoyed this beach house a lot. It was perfectly located to the beach. We enjoyed taking the kids crab hunting at night, took the ferry to Dauphin Island, and enjoyed the activities at the Beach Club. "
"Whoop whoop!! We are so glad you enjoyed the house and the fun activities Fort Morgan has to offer! Thanks for leaving a review and we hope to see you again!"
"We had 9 people staying in our party. We were 25 minutes from Gulf Shores, and just a few minutes drive from Fort Morgan. The property itself was a 5 minute walk to the ocean and boasted beautiful views of the bay. The staff were easy to work with, and any problem that we had was addressed quickly and efficiently. They were courteous and made sure to try to work around us so as to not disrupt our stay. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again!"
"YAY!! We are so very glad to hear this! We do hope you will come back and stay with us again soon!"
"Overall we loved staying in Fort Morgan. For most part, the house was good. I would personally get better living room furniture due to the blue couch has stains on it and fix broken toilet seat. Sunset property people are great and will boom through them the next time we come down."
"Yay! We hope to see you again in the near future!"
"The house was beautiful! It’s has everything you could need! "
"Yay! Thank you so much for the review, Jason! So glad that you enjoyed your stay in Southern Comfort! We would love to get you booked again for your next trip!"
"With as big a family as we have, we needed a lot of room, and this house was perfect for us. And the location right across the street from the beach was perfect, and it was a quiet location."
"We are so glad you were pleased with your accommodations! We love to hear from our guests about their stay with us! Fort Morgan is, indeed, a very quiet and peaceful location. We hope you will visit our Facebook page and give us a good review! We look forward to having you back with us again!"
"We loved the house and our stay...only downfall is the fact it’s 19 miles from everything. If you don’t mind being in the middle of nowhere, it’s the perfect house to stay in "
"We are so glad you were happy with your accommodations! We are a good distance out, but most of our guests love the area because it is quieter out here. Come back and stay with us again soon!"
"Southern Comfort is a comfortable house with everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. It's close enough to the beach that a short walk brings you to you the surf and the sand within minutes. The view of the bay from both decks was a plus. A nice quiet location."
"Thank you so much for your review! We love the peace and quiet here in Fort Morgan. And what a beautiful view of the bay from Southern Comfort! Hope you come and stay with us again!"
"Thank you for sharing you lovely home we had a beautiful white sand Christmas! We look forward to visiting again!!"
"Woohoo! I am so glad you enjoyed the house and had a great stay! We look forward to having you again!"
"We braved our FIRST hurricane during our stay, Sunset properties were very attentive to our questions and after the storm even checked on us to make sure we were ok!! The house was perfect!!! We had 10 people stay and we were all very comfortable!! When we had hot water issues there was someone at our place in minutes!! The stay was perfect and we can not wait to book this house for next year!! "
"YAY!! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us at one of our fabulous properties! We are always glad to help!"
"We had a great trip with friends loved the very clean beach house which was very roomy for all 5 of us. Great weather the whole week, Also loved having our dogs with us on vacation they loved the ocean as much as we did. Tacky jacks is the best for eating out and watching the sunsets over the bay and meeting the locals. Until we meet again, U are my SOUTHERN COMFORT!!!!!!!!"
"YAY!! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit with us! We will be so glad to have you come out again anytime!!"
"Southern Comfort was absolutely great! Way better than the photos show. Everything was right at your fingertips. Loved having the wagon to haul stuff to the beach. The front porch was so nice in the evening, sitting outside watching the sunset. The big king size bed was super comfortable. Got lots of rain the last day so turned it into a shopping spree! Whole process was super easy and smooth, would definitely love to stay again."
"Whoop!! Sp glad to hear this!!"
"I was in the area for a conference. My family enjoyed a week at the beach while I was in meetings. Very quiet area with a nice beach. Being pet friendly was a huge plus. I would recommend this house."
"So glad you could incorporate business and pleasure! It is a great house, we hope you can come back soon!"
"Bay view from back and front porches. Short walk to the beach. Very spacious. Clean and comfortable. Only problem is no grocery store for 19 miles. "
"We are so glad to hear back from you! It is a bit of a drive, we always try to let everyone know, for future reference there is a small market only 4 miles away for emergencies!"
"We only got to go to the beach two days because of tropical storm Cindy. Even though there was a storm, wind and lots of rain we felt safe in the house. There were games and good family time."
"Whew! That was a close one, so glad the storm wasn't worse than it was! There were still some good days, thank goodness! glad you still had a good trip!"
"THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE. WE HAD A WONDERFUL WEEK IN THE SOUTHERN COMFORT BY THE BAY. GREAT BEACH ACCESS AND FISHING IN THE BAY. "
"This is a great house and we are so glad you enjoyed your visit here! Hope to see you again soon!"
"A great home for that beach get-away. Location is amazing just steps away from Mobile Bay and a couple blocks from the white sandy beach of the Gulf. The beach is private so only residents and guests were using it-- not crowded at all. The view off the back deck is priceless--saw dolphins playing in the bay. House is decorated very nicely. Will definitely be back and will be recommending to my family and friends."
"So glad to hear this! Yes, we love our houses on the bay, fantastic views for sure! "
"Very clean, nice place to stay for a quiet vacation. Close to the bay and a short walk to the beach. Best vacation!"
"Awesome! I'm so happy you had a wonderful time!"
"everything was as promised. house was clean and everything needed was there.yard was also neat and clean. "
"Thank you for writing a review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us!"
"Sunset properties was very helpful with all questions that we had. We originally booked a condo, but because our dog was over 25lbs we had to change it to the house. The process was very easy and the staff was very helpful. Check in states as 3pm, but after a 13 hour drive sunset properties was kind enough to let us into the house at an earlier time. The office is located really close to the house so it is extremely convenient. Overall we were very happy with our stay as well as the property. The night we arrived we had issues with the water heater and couldn't take hot showers and the maintenance man was able to get there within 30 minutes which was very much appreciated!! We will definitely be coming back soon because we were absolutely satisfied with our stay her at Southern Comfort!!!"
"Yay! We are so glad to hear from you, we hope that we will see you again soon!"
"Very nice home. We loved the location just a short walk to the beach and view of the bay. We would definitely stay again!"
"It was fantastic! It was easy to pick up and drop off keys. Our friends stayed in Southern Comfort while we stayed a couple houses down. We know the area well and it was perfect place for our families to vacation. "
"Thanks for the 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
Renting with Sunset Properties -
This was our first rental experience with Sunset Properties after going to Gulf Shores for 10+ years and let me say I was impressed!! I don't think we will use any other rental property. Our condo and stay were wonderful, any questions or concerns before or during our trip were taken care of. We loved our unit in Ocean House II. Thank you Sunset Properties for providing such a great experience!! We'll be seeing you next year.Z.Boggs
Renting with Sunset Properties -
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

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
