Almost Heaven is a treasure, directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The view will take your breath away, and the gentle crash of the waves and salty tang of the air will lull you into the best night's sleep you have had in a while. The great room, with its comfortable seating, grand view, and cathedral ceiling, is a great gathering place. The round dining table was chosen because it is ideal for board games and card games. Whether you are planning a reunion or honeymoon, our Wedding quiet, out of the way cottage on the beach is a place for making memories, reconnecting with those you love, and unwinding. We hope you love it is much as we do. We hope that you'll say as so many others have, "The only thing wrong is the name. It's not Almost Heaven, It IS Heaven!

John and I met on a church hayride when we were just kids. Married in 1986, we have lived in central Alabama, Ohio, San Francisco, New Zealand, and Poland. When John began to work from home, we planted roots on Alabama's gorgeous sugar white sand. This blessing known as Almost Heaven has been a joy to offer to families, and we have always had perfect guests! It is true! We have the best guests in the world, and many come year after year, check on us during storms, and they are like family to us now. We raised our children on these beaches, and now they are grown. Thankfully, this precious little strip of paradise keeps bringing them back to visit us too!
Best Vacation Ever
5/5 Stayed Mar 2006
This was our best beach vacation ever. Everything was just as we had dreamed it would be from the pictures and descriptions. There was a fully equipped kitchen; comfortable and clean furnishings; spacious bedrooms; plenty of closet space for getting luggage out of sight; and an overall uncluttered atmosphere. We visited during spring break and even though the house was right on the beach all was quiet and peaceful. Privileges to the Beach Club - a two minute stroll down the beach - was an added plus, especially for my teenage daughters. We will definitely rent this one again! (Our favorite place to eat when we visit the coast is still Wolf Bay Lodge in Elberta, Alabama. It's a little bit of a drive but worth it. (Fresh fish and seafood; Very casual; Economical or pricey - depending upon what you order.)

CAN'T WAIT TO BE BACK ON THE BEACH
5/5 Stayed Jun 2006
Our family had the most wonderful vacations summer 2005 &
2006 at Almost Heaven on the Beach in Fort Morgan.
We would not have changed a thing if we could have.
The water was beautiful, the sand white, the dolphins were out every day, the home was perfect and the pool fabulous. If not for a promise to a 5 year old to take a Disney Vacation in 2007 we would definitely be back again this year. We get sad everytime we think about missing our vacation on the beach this year. But you can bet we will book early for 2008.
We have started a tradition of unforgetable family memories
and we hope to continue them for years to come at Almost Heaven on the Beach in Fort Morgan, AL. What a special place to share with your children and grandchildren!

Hooked On Heaven
My family and I have been on many beach vacations, in Florida, Hawaii, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, etc…, but none have compared to the week we spent at Almost Heaven on the Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. This was our first and definitely not last visit to the Gulf Coast and we would definitely try to stay at this wonderful beach house again. It was everything and more than its description. The views from inside the house and, of course, the amazingly large deck, were spectacular, especially at sunset. The beach was clean and beautiful, the sand was like sugar. The house had everything we needed and more. The furnishings were comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. There were tons of beach toys and boogie boards. There were movies to enjoy when we’d had enough sun for awhile. There were games to play and books to read. And then there was also the Beach Club, which was an extra added bonus. It was only a short walk down the beach and we could enjoy a swim in the beautiful pools or a soak in one of the many hot tubs. And my kids especially loved the game room. There is no question that we would stay at Almost Heaven on the Beach again and we would highly recommend this house to everyone.

I have found Utopia, and its name is Almost Heaven on the Beach. The location is perfect, private but convenient to everything we needed. The house is beautiful, and my eyes were constantly drawn to the southern bank of windows and the Gulf of Mexico right at my feet. My dad and my husband took over the rocker/recliners, while mom and I enjoyed long beach walks with the kids. We hunted sandcrabs at night, cooked fish and shrimp in the well appointed kitchen, and had the best night's sleep ever after long days in the sun. I started my day on the spacious front deck, lounging with a book, my coffee, and surprising dolphin shows! They did not just swim by, they would play for thirty minutes at a time right in the front "yard." When the guys wanted to watch sports, they were pleased with the flat screen in the den, and everyone had tvs in their bedrooms for those who wished to forego sports:). We ate out a few nights (DeSoto's is GREAT), and played cards, dominoes, and board games almost every night, all supplied in the house. We never used the movie library, and we brought our own books, but both of those were available as well. I have never been one to covet, but I have to say that leaving our beach house was tough. To say I am looking forward to our next visit is an understatement. I am counting the days until our next vacation at Almost Heaven on the Beach.

After years of staying in large condos in Gulf Shores, we decided for a change of pace and contacted the owners of Almost Heaven. I was so glad that we did! Our crew consisted of 2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 teens, and 1 toddler. It was perfect for each and every one of us. The house was beautiful inside and out. There were games and puzzles in every closet. There were supplies that we may have forgotten to pack. There was a washer and dryer that we made good use of. There were beach floats and toys of all shapes and sizes. There were videos and dvds as well as satellite and saved movies on tv. There was a grill and patio furniture...just to name a few things. There was no hustle-bustle of a busy tourist area. It was like our own private get-away! Within walking distance, there was the beach club that not only had swimming and tennis areas, but activities planned for all ages every day. I never had to worry about my teens and there was plenty for my parents, my husband and me, and my youngest to do. We had so much fun grilling out every night that we never wanted to leave and go to a restaurant even though there were plenty of them nearby! Finally, the owner of Almost Heaven treated us like a good friend, even though we had never met and I will never forget her. My entire family agrees that we will only stay at Almost Heaven when we plan another vacation to the beach!

What a wonderful get away. Clear water, weather perfect and the house was just perfect for our family. Our grown sons and family's came, lay out was great. Beds SO comfy, kitchen well supplied. Views from the house are super. We enjoyed everything from having our morning coffee on the deck to home made ice cream in the evening. So easy just to wander down the beach to eat, swim, spa since we house visitors have access to it. The pictures here do not do this home justice. We felt like we were home. We are planning to come again and again. So much nicer than a condo with people and rules on top of you.

Heaven is an Understatement!
This is the most wonderful beach home on the Alabama Gulf Coast. They had to send the sherriff out to make us leave. I offered them one of my kids to let us stay another day.
