    We absolutely loved the My Sunshine house. It was a lot bigger inside than it looked on the outside. We had 6 people and the house was plenty big for all of us. I would recommend this property to anyone going on vacation at Ft. Morgan.

    a guest from Pulaski, TN recommends this vacation rental

    The property was very clean and well equipped. The owner even had beach toys, chairs and a wagon on the property for us to use. The walk to the beach is not bad for adults but a little difficult with small children in the heat. However there is room at the beach to park. The view of the bay is beautiful. Access to a pool would have been great since there were so many jellyfish in the ocean making it hard to swim and enjoy the water.

    Stacey C from Edmond, OK recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first vacation to the Gulf Shore area. The beaches are gorgeous and the water is so clear! You can see your feet when your five feet deep in the water. The house was extremely nice. I have never stayed in a beach house that was stocked with so many items. It was really nice. The only down side is the house is across the highway and I was unaware of that. It is about a five-six minute walk to the beach. I was also over-whelmed with the southern charm of people from Alabama. Everyone is so nice. We are definitely coming back and making this our new beach vacation spot!!

    The house was very nice and clean. the bathrooms were fairly updated and the bedrooms were comfortable. It is a nice walk to the beach but you do get a view of the bay off the front porch. We went during a more off season mid September and the neighborhood was nice a quiet I really enjoyed that.

    The house was perfect size for my family. It was tasteful and comfortable. It has to be the only vacation home I have stayed in that you actually had proper cooking pans and utensils. It was on perfect for my son to fish and crab (just at end of street). The beach was not a very far walk. We had a great time and the owner was so kind as to allow us the use of the wagon and all beach items. My son used her kayak and went out with a friend of hers and had a wonderful time. Only complaint, just not long enough.

    My family enjoyed the property. Being out first time n the area, I am glad we chose Fort Morgan area. After spending time up by the high rise Condo's near the "Hang out", we quickly discovered it is a great place to go have a little fun, spend a little money, but I think it would be too crowded to stay there for my likings.

I would, definitely recommend this property to a friend.

    Without the benefit of having been to Fort Morgan or the Gulf Shores area, we had to rely on our internet search. We happened upon U R My Sunshine and read the reviews. The property was as promised: It was clean, inviting, centrally located, and convenient to restaurants and shopping, without being too close. We were very happy with our choice and with the inviting way we were treated by Becky and the Sunset Properties company. We plan to return to the area, if not the same house, next year.

    Sherry O from Pleasent Grove, AL recommends this vacation rental

    Becky has done an amazing job with "My Sunshine". From the moment that we got there, a complete sense of relaxation and total pampering came over us. This has owner spared no expense in making a beautiful and completely equipped (Wi-Fi and Direct TV in all rooms) home away from home atmosphere. The pictures do not do this beautifully decorated home justice. And the views from the decks were breathtaking. What better way to start the day than to sit on the front porch, coffee in hand and watch the beautiful sunrises. Or sit on the back deck with a cold drink and watch the sunsets and boats coming into the bay. My youngest son who was home on leave (USMC / Semper Fi) really enjoyed (as we all did) the free airshows that we got from the F18 flyovers. This was the first time that we took our pets with us and they had a blast. The beach was a nice walk for them and us. We were also able to take my 75 year old mother to the beach with her walker. She loved it! The only problem that we had was that our vacation did not last long enough! For the past 35 years we have vacationed and camped all over the Southeast and Gulf Panhandle so I can safely say this place is definitely in the top 5. Thank you so much Becky for sharing your wonderful home!
