Welcome to Sunshine! Sunshine is the ideal vacation rental located across the street from one of 4 beach access boardwalks and just a few houses away from one of the 2 neighborhood swimming pools. Sunshine is pet friendly and so are the beaches in Morgantown so the entire family can vacation together!

This comfortable home has an open floor plan which features a comfortable living area where the Alabama sunlight shines through the double glass doors and large windows. The dining area is roomy and you'll find a full kitchen well equipped to prepare simple meals should you choose to dine at home. Or, venture out for dinner in one of the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach world-class restaurants. Prefer to stay close to home? No worries, you'll have plenty of option for tasty meals and even live entertainment. Sassy Bass, Tacky Jacks, Coast and Behind the Pines are just a few of the local favorites.

On the first level, you'll also find a king bedroom and a bunk bedroom with two, twin over full bunk beds plus a full bath.

Upstairs, there are three additional bedrooms, all with king beds. Two have balcony access and one has a private en suite bath. There is also a full hall bath on this level.

While it's just steps to the beach, pool or tennis courts, you will enjoy spending time on the decks where you'll enjoy relaxing in Adirondack style chairs, rocking chairs and a table with seating for four. The ground level is equipped with an outdoor shower and a full sized picnic table.

New Owners have made some significant improvements in 2018 including:
- New flooring in all bedrooms
- New mattress in Master bedroom
- New bedding in bedrooms
- New carpet on stairs
- New electric range with double oven (bottom oven is convection)
- New Bosch dishwasher
- New family room chairs and sleeper sofa
- High speed internet (100Mbps)
- A variety of board/card games located in the buffet next to the dining room table

We hope you will enjoy our vacation home as much as we do!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sunshine! We would have stayed longer if we could have. The property manager, DeeDee, stopped by to meet us the day after we arrived. She was very helpful, and you can tell she wants you to enjoy your stay! The house was in the perfect location. Just a couple minutes from both the beach and the pool. It was very clean. The beds were comfortable, and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows if you were to need them. It has everything you could need in a vacation rental. If I were to change anything, I’d hang some blinds or shades on some of the windows, but that won’t stop us from visiting again. We will definitely stay with Relax on the Beach again!

After arriving in Ft. Morgan on a Sunday afternoon to a different rental that proved to be an ongoing construction zone, we scrambled to find an alternative that was pet friendly and were very happy to have found Sunshine. Right from the start, the phone representative was extremely helpful in securing the reservation and handling the rental documents in record time. Within a half hour we were pulling up to Sunshine and met Didi, the Relax On The Beach representative. She was phenomenal too and made sure everything was clean and ready to go for us. Again, all of this was on a Sunday afternoon at the last minute which makes it more amazing!

Sunshine was well equipped, everything in working order, good views of the beach from both covered decks, easy access to the beach and WONDERFULLY decorated. Not one but two charcoal grills available and plenty of deck chairs to enjoy the outside.

We found only a couple of small negatives:
The glass door to the back deck needs some kind of blinds or a curtain. The afternoon sun shines in creating a lot of heat. We covered it with a towel and it made a big difference in the indoor temperature.
The other was the busy street it is located on with mainly construction vehicles speeding by during the day. A few speed bumps would make this better but it would not stop us from coming back to Sunshine.

We would highly recommend Sunshine as well as any property that is managed by Relax On The Beach. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Everyone enjoyed staying here. The house is beautiful. All the pictures and decor made it peaceful. The beach was close and the pool also.There were too many children to want to go out to eat so we brought our own food to prepare and the kitchen was well equipped. Customer service was great.

Property was well equipped, clean and convenient to Pool, Tennis Courts and immediately adjacent to the the Beach access boardwalk.
Family dogs accompanied us and they enjoyed the beach experience while giving us a substantial savings by not having to board them back in New Orleans.
We will return to this property in the future. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Everything we anticipated to have a relaxing family getaway. Close to the beach and the pool, plenty of room for all of us to not feel on top of each other. So nice to relax in the evening to the sounds of the waves. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We love Sunshine! It`s our 2nd year staying in this house. It`s perfect for our family. Short walk to the beach and lovely neighborhood. Kitchen is well stocked and new fan in den area is awesome! Big and cooling whole room now! My son got married at the State Park at the end of our visit so that made this year extra special. Our only problem was the dryer. It stopped working mid-visit and made us visit a laundromat. Towels on the balcony after that and bags of wet clothes were toted back home which was really terrible. Service was sent out to fix it but it didn`t work. Only negative but sooooo inconvenient. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The kitchen was well appointed, and the house was very comfortable for our group. Would highly recommend staying at Sunshine.

We enjoyed a great stay! We had 6 adults, 3 smaller children, and 3 babies. The house is within a fairly easy walk to the beach down a boardwalk and a very easy walk to one of the pools in the community. The hosue was very nice and the accomodations were great. We had everything we needed! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We loved our stay here! We loved that the pool was right behind the house. We loved the new boardwalk right to the beach. We loved the spaciousness of the house and the very properly equipped kitchen.
We had a few problems. One of the folding doors on upstairs closet was not on track and fell gashing the door. We removed it to avoid any other safety issues. The ice maker was terrible! We had to buy ice each and everyday. We couldn`t even freeze popsicles! 1st floor bathroom had 2 bulbs out. Bathroom door on 1st floor sticks and is difficult to open. But our biggest complaint was the trash pick-up. We arrived Saturday and had 2 out of the 3 cans filled. Instructions in house said p/u was Monday and Thursday. We were piling bags next to cans by Wed---as they didn`t p/u until afternoon on Wed. Everyone in our area was in the same fix! But again, we loved the house! We loved our family gathering and have very good memories of SUNSHINE. We would book this again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were at full capacity of 16 plus 2 dogs. Sunshine was very comfortable and a great location just across from the boardwalk to the beach. Enjoyed early morning and late evening hours on the front porch. Home was clean and provided us with plenty of space and basics for cooking some of our meals in. Couple of housekeeping items which I failed to report, new dishwasher however I was unable to get it to run a full cycle and the ceiling fan in the living area would not turn on. Other than those 2 items I was very pleased with Sunshine. Would definitely rent again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great time at Sunshine! Morgantown is great because you are far away from the crowds. The accommodations were really nice - plenty of room and all the amenities that we needed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
