If you are looking for a serene, luxury, beachfront home to enjoy some FUN in the SUN and R & R - look no further - Susan's Sand Castle II is the perfect place for just that and so much more!
Roll down your windows and smell the ocean as you enter our neighborhood and get ready to see the most amazing blue skies, white puffy clouds and the sugar-white sand of our Fort Morgan beaches! When you pull into one of the three bays under the house - you'll immediately see "our beach" , with sawgrass growing on the inviting sand dunes. If you want to run (or wheel) up the outdoor ramp - so you can immediately experience the beach - have at it! That ramp will take you directly to our deck, with picnic table, Adirondack chairs and plenty of beach toys for the young and the young-at-heart!
We know it will be hard to take your eyes off the beach, the gulf and the sky - but while those that drew the short-straws unload the cars - the rest of you can walk on the Sand Dune Walkover (Boardwalk) directly to the beach. Feel free to take our deck and lounge chairs with you. Go dip your toes in the water or go all the way in. Skinny-dipping (or Chunky-Dunking) is prohibited - so please take a few minutes to get into your swim suits!
The Great Room at Susan's Sand Castle II is spacious - plenty of room for your family and friends to dine together or hang out, as the designated chefs whip up a meal in the fully-stocked kitchen.
There are two full size refrigerators (one is in the Utility Room); stove, microwave, dishwasher and ice-machine - that makes up to 35 pounds of ice a day. Every small kitchen appliance you could want is also supplied for your convenience. And the cabinets are stocked with everything you need to prepare and serve the food that you bring with you.
No need to fight over who gets the "Best Room" - because they are all "Best Rooms"! Two King Master Suites, with spacious Bathrooms and jetted tubs await you and both have direct access to the beach-side deck. One Master Suite is conveniently located right off the Great Room; and the other Master Suite is upstairs.
Two additional King Bedrooms are also located upstairs and face the beach, with doors accessible to the balcony. One of these King Bedrooms has a private full bathroom and the other is semi-private. Children are delighted when they see the Bunk Room we've created just for them. It sleeps up to 8 children, with full size mattresses on the top and bottom of two bunk beds.
A Queen-size sleeper sofa, located in the Great Room, allows for additional sleeping. A half-bath is located on the main level, around the corner from the Great Room, for the convenience of all.
Large flat-screen Smart TVs are located in every bedroom as well as the Great Room. Plenty of books and games are provided for after a day in the sun or on those rare rainy days.
Towels, wash cloths, beach towels, linens, pillows and comforters are provided for no additional fee. A stackable washer/dryer are provided in the Utility Room for your convenience.
The home was built in 2015 and was beautifully decorated by Susan herself!
This beach house is perfect for Family Reunions, Vacations with Family/Friends, Corporate Retreats, and more! There is a $1,500.00 surcharge for Weddings. Snowbirds are welcome to contact us about renting by the month.
We have two other beachfront luxury homes located in the Morgantown sub-division - three miles closer to Gulf Shores. Check out those listings at #677 for Susan's Sand Castle I, which sleeps up to 20; and #678 for Susan's Sand Castle III, which sleeps up to 30 AND has an indoor elevator.
If you're still reading this description - you must really love our beach house - so send us a message to find out more details or go ahead and book your next beach vacation with us! We have so many loyal returning guests for all three of our beach houses that our Reservation Calendar fills up quickly for peak times and they often reserve "their week" years in advance , but we love to make new friends and welcome your inquiry. We do our best to respond in under an hour, but because we don't recharge on coffee alone - we do try to sleep at some point, therefore will respond to late night inquiries first thing the next morning. We are currently accepting reservations through the end of 2021.
We found this property - at the very beginning of construction - at a time that the owner wanted to sell.
With Susan's 30 years as a real estate professional and Jerry's knowledge of construction and management - we were able to purchase this property and then completely design and decorate it based on what we knew our loyal guests from Susan's Sand Castle I would like - a beachfront house that we purchased several years before.
We then later were able to build another - even larger beach front vacation home that's just a few miles away, called Susan's Sand Castle III.

My dear friends,
Jerry and I are so very happy when you spend your vacation with us! You are our invited guests and we want you to make lifelong memories at the beach.
We’ve been married 47 years in June of 2019. Working hard to raise and support our children, MATTHEW and JENNIFER, we expected to spend our retirement years quietly (which is not happening). In 2008, JENNIFER had twins on New Year’s Eve; a boy and a girl, Taylor and Tyler. They adore the beach and come down every summer. They are the apples of Papa’s and GeaGea’s eyes.
My darling husband knew my lifelong dream was to have a beach cottage. He made it his mission, when we got close to retirement, to make that dream come true! We looked all the way from the Florida coast to Alabama, until I saw the house of my dream . . . “Beachy Keen”. It’s previous name was The Pelican! It was perfect!
So, we were enjoying our fun in the sun, until a house came up for sale in the neighborhood. We were just talking on the porch, when one of us said “We could try the rental business.” Long story short - that became Susan’s Sand Castle I (SSCI).
We later purchased a lot, and Jerry built SSCII. After that, he needed another project, so he started from scratch, and SSCIII was born. I’ve had a ball decorating, since I want you to feel as if you’ve come home!
There went retirement, but God had other plans for us. We’ve had a ball and met some of the nicest people we’ve ever known!
So many blessings galore, and may God bless each of you abundantly!
P.S. Papa says, “There won’t be a SSCIV”, (even though our friends Shug and Fred say they are going to outgrow our biggest house!).
Our group of seven and our fur baby spent New Year's Eve at Susan's Sand Castle II. We could not have asked for a more accommodating place.
Dana was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was quick to reply to all questions and even offered to bring us ice when the ice maker was not working.
The extra touches that came with this fabulous house were not unnoticed. Complimentary wine and things like bathroom cleaner, packs of make-up remover cloths, room deodorant, extra toilet tissue, extra dish washing pods, beach towels, and books are just part of the fringe benefits. There are more than enough plates, glasses, pots and pans, etc. which is something we thoroughly enjoyed since we love to cook.
I have been coming to this area for many years and started renting homes twice a year instead of condos in 2013, and Susan's Sand Castle II is the only one I have found that offers so many extras. It is also one of the cleanest homes we have been in. Closets are ample and the beds are comfy. The location could not be any better; the sand and water are at the end of the fabulous walkway to the beach. The ramp was especially beneficial since we have a person who cannot maneuver steps very well. You can't go wrong with this house, and I am looking forward to our next trip to Susan's Sand Castle II.

Thank you so much Debbie for your review of Susan's Sand Castle II. We saw that you've already booked for New Year's next year - that's wonderful!
We are so pleased to hear that your group of family and friends had such a good time! AND that you noticed and appreciated all of the extras that we provide for our valued guests!
Susan and Jerry Keen, Owners
This is one of the greatest houses we’ve stayed in! Totally looking forward to coming back next year. Looking foreword to working with and meeting Dana! She is a dream to work with!

We are so glad to hear that you liked Susan's Sand Castle II. We had a lot of fun designing, building and decorating it! Just let us know when you can return!
This was our first time to stay at Fort Morgan but it was fantastic because of our accommodations. Great place to stay - Dana thought of everything.

So glad to hear that your family's first beach vacation in Fort Morgan was such a good one and that you liked our beach house!
This home is very welcoming! Plenty of space for a large group. Well-stocked kitchen, with extra fridge & ice maker.
Although this home may not advertise as wheelchair accessible, the ramp up to home easily accommodates wheelchair & they can provide a small ramp to go over threshold. We were able to make this work for our wheelchair bound family member, but would have loved to have grab rails in shower & toilet area. No complaints!
This home is well-designed with places for family to gather or find a nice nook for quiet time. With the attention to detail, it’s obvious that the owners & manager want you to enjoy your time in this beach oasis. Dana’s response time was quick & courteous. We truly enjoyed out time there!

Thank you so much for your kinds words! We are thrilled to hear that our house worked for your family member in a wheelchair - but we normally do encourage guests to stay at Susan's Sand Castle III - which is better equipped with an indoor elevator and more bars in a bathroom.
Nevertheless, we were happy to hear that you all were able to make it work. AND we are thrilled that your family had such a good time and that you were pleased with the level of service.
We had a large family vacation. Plenty of room for everyone, the house and location are beautiful.

Sounds like your group had some fun excursions while you were here at the beach - that's wonderful! We're so glad to hear that you liked our beach house!
Everyone in my family loved every part of this beautiful home. My one son-in-law mentioned to me what a wonderful experience this was. He couldn’t get over how nice the
Everyone in my family had a super time at Susan’s Sand Castle ll. It was the first trip to the beach for one family member, and he loved the beach and the ocean. He even caught a hermit crab and tiny little fish. He had a ball. The home is so spacious and well laid out. We were all sad to be leaving and hope to be back soon. The manager, Dana, was very helpful with any questions we had. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

We love to hear stories from guests so thank you for sharing! We are thrilled to hear that you had a good experience!
11 of us stayed a week at Susan’s Sand Castle II. The house was very accomidating and had everything we needed while cooking meals. Dana was very responsive with any answers to questions. The house has a very open feel and the covered porches were great! We never once felt crowded here!

We're thrilled to hear that your group had such a good time at Susan's Sand Castle II and that you were pleased with the level of service provided. Just let us know when you can return!
We’ve been holding an annual family week at the beach for 14 years now, and Susan’s Sand Castle II was as nice as any place we’ve stayed, and better than most. As the family has grown we have needed more and more space, and with FOUR bedrooms with beachfront access, it was perfect. We’ve never stayed anywhere with such easy beach access, or such great views from every bedroom. The home is well-furnished, with all appliances available and working properly. The home stayed cool even on the hottest days, something we’ve had issue with in other rentals.
Basically, you could say Susan’s Sand Castle II was exactly as advertised, which was exactly what we hoped for. We will definitely plan to return,

We're are thrilled to hear that your family had such a good time during your Family Gathering! We built this beach house - for families just like yours - big enough to spend time together but private areas when you need a break from all the fun. Just let us know when you can return to our little piece of Paradise!
