Navy Cove - Fishing, Pet Friendly, Boating, Beaches, Bay and Gulf-Your Gulf Coast Vacation Rental
"We had a great time. Our stay went way to fast. The condo is beautiful, had everything we needed. Our little Pixel enjoyed her walk on the beach everyday. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying. Thank you for giving us your condo and giving us a great vacation." - Jacqueline M., , 02/28/2016
"A most relaxing vacation. My husband and I, and our two furbabies, stayed from December 29th until January 3rd. We had a marvelous time. The condo was well furnished, clean, and the complex was peaceful and quiet. We loved that the condo looked out over the Bon Secour wildlife preserve! We even got to see an otter on the beach right outside our balcony! Kelli was very accommodating during our stay and answered any questions we had promptly. We will definitely stay here again!" - Sherri E., 01/06/2016
"Fort Morgan retreat. great location to get away! We had such a great time. The condo was great for us and our two dogs. Enjoyed every aspect of the trip. Kelli was very responsive whenever we had questions." - Wynn G., 09/25/2015
"Best part of the Gulf!!. My family and I have been going to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area for a decade and a half; we've always loved it down there. What we didn't know though was that we were missing the best part - Fort Morgan. Navy Cove is everything we were looking for in a vacation condo, and being able to take our pet was a huge added bonus. It's a very laid back and relaxing atmosphere, the beaches were very secluded, and the room was excellent. Decorated in very good taste, comfy and cozy furniture and beds, washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen, and views of both the Bay and Gulf made it the best condo we've ever stayed in." - Shannon B., 09/25/2015
"Just ralaxing. We loved Navy Cove! It was perfect for our family. The condo was great .We hope to come back soon." - sidney m., 09/23/2015
""Best vacation I have ever had!! This was the first time that we have been to Fort Morgan, mostly because it was pet friendly as we brought our 3 dogs. I will have to say that Navy Cove will be the only place that we will be booking for our future vacations and will never consider another part of any other beach in the area. Navy Cove literally is the best of both worlds with the bay on one side and the ocean on the other. To me, it was more secluded and more private than Orange Beach, it was like having the beach all to yourself; and when you needed a rest from the beach, you could relax in the condo's pool and hot tub. Everything from contacting the owner to making reservation and checking in and out was seamless. Myself and my family fell in love with the condo as it had everything that a home could offer, plus more. Thank you, Kelli for everything and allowing us to have a place to call our home even if it was for just a week."" - Heather M., Jacksonville, AR, 08/15/2015
"fishing family. This was the best vacation! The condo was perfect. The owner was very nice and the decor was just beautiful. Best of all, the beds. Heavenly to sleep well away from home!! We will definitely be back and will stay in this condo. By the way the fishing was great." - Fishing Family, Ohatchee, Alabama, 11/10/2014
"loved it!. The perfect location for someone who needs a place for their boat plus the beach is just across the street. The condo was clean, nicely decorated, and spacious. I loved the sleep number bed. We look forward to coming back." - Boaters, Ga, 10/21/2014
"Comfort an. Had a great time while staying at the Navy Cove condo. Especially nice to be away from the crowds of Gulf Shores but just a 20 minute drive to lots of activities. Added bonus in the condo was a sleep number bed and recliner for those with back issues! Everything was clean and comfortable. The setting was just beautiful..." - Bette, Madison, IN, 10/14/2014
"We loved Navy Cove!. My husband and I have been staying in Fort Morgan for almost 12 years with and without family. This was our first stay in Navy Cove and Kelli's condo was perfect for us. We wanted to bring our girl dogs to see the beach, as they are getting older but still active. The condo was great for pets, the bay was perfect for walks and swimming with them. The complex was very quiet and peaceful. The balcony view is gorgeous bay sunrises and peeks of the beach. We could walk across the street or a quick minute drive to beach access. Kitchen was stocked well, lots of extra blankets, pillows and towels. It was great having electronic entry so we didnt worry about losing a key while at the beach. The pools and hot tubs were a nice bonus (though one hot tub was down for half our week...no big deal!) Fishing in the bay was fun and it was neat to watch boats coming and going. The property was stocked with doggir bags. We enjoyed sitting on the gazebo area to watch boats. It was spacious enough for large community dinners and right beside 3 big grills. We plan to return to Navy Cove next year. Booking wirh Kelli was a breeze and the condo was clean and organized for us when we got there. Check in and out was quick and easy! Bring beach towels, sunscreen, maybe a wagon or cooler for beach days, and no expectations for a perfect week. Check out Rouse's on Gulf Shores Pkwy/Ft Morgan Road. Its our favorite store and has an amazing selection for cooking lovers as well as traveling staples. We love that store! It is a local gem." - Amber, Nashville, TN, 10/12/2014
"Had a great time at this condo! Layout was great, it was clean, and had no issues with appliances, etc... Easy access to the bay and ocean-side. Fished off the surf and caught flounder. I would highly recommend this condo for a great beach trip." - Robert S., Franklin, TN, 09/10/2014
"Awesome and Relaxing Stay. We had a wonderful time! Five children and 3 adults. We loved the beautifully decorated condo and the fact that it was very quiet and peaceful. The beach was great and we liked the stroll down the bay/plus the view from the balcony. The kids loved the pool and the waves from the ocean. The condo was also great for my gram that had to be in a wheelchair! I would definitley recommend this condo to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation spot! Will def be looking to stay in more of Kelli's condo's sometime in the near future!" - Bobbi, Jackson, MO, 07/28/2014
"AB, Wynne, Arkansas. This was our first time to use this location and it was perfect. When I was planning this trip I kept going back and forth in my mind about whether to choose a condo or a house. Renting this condo gave us the best of both worlds. We had the peace and quiet of a house yet we had the pool, hot tub, marina, and the veiw of a condo. I especially like the veiw from the balcony. We faced east for the morning sun with our coffee and the afternoon shade with our margaritas. We had fun watching the animals in the wildlife refuge from the balcony as well. We named the baby alligator "Hector" which came from "what the heck is that!" We had a blast coming back to the condo from a day at the beach and checking out what Hector was up to. We had everything we needed and it was a beautiful setting. This is now my new favorite place to stay." - Angela, Wynne, Arkansas, 07/22/2014
"Nice Place to stay. We had a nice stay. While it was only 60 degrees, that was 30-40 degrees warmer than at home. The condo was nice, and well stocked with supplies and very comfortable. Being able to bring our dogs was great. We loved walking on the beach and taking in the sights.." - Kevin T., 01/06/2014
"The Perfect Vacation Home!. We found this location while searching for a place that would welcome our big dog and we're so glad we did! It's the perfect human retreat, too! The condo is just steps away from fishing from the pier or beach, swimming, skiing or playing in Mobile Bay, or walk across the street to the Gulf if you want. Having a boat dock there means no launching and hauling and you can be in the Gulf in just minutes by water! The complex is nestled between a couple of nice restaurant/bars and a scenic 20 minute ride puts you in the heart of Gulf Shores. Or you can go in the other direction and explore Fort Morgan or hop on the ferry for a fun ride to Dauphin Island and Mobile. The unit itself is beautiful and comfortable and we wanted for nothing! The kitchen is so well appointed we cooked a huge Christmas meal with no trouble, and I noticed plenty of big pots perfect for cooking up the bounties of summer! It's also very close to the elevator and there's plenty of parking. I could say "comfortable and convenient" a hundred times - and Kelli patiently (and quickly) responded to every question I emailed her before our arrival! We hated to leave and began planning our next Christmas there before doing so....but I'm looking at my schedule for a summer visit, too!" - Kathy E., Colimbia, MS, 01/01/2014
"Navy Cove. This has been the fifth year going here. We absolutely love staying out there in Fort Morgan and Navy Cove! We have been fortunate enough to have Kelli allow us to bring our fur babies with us on our trips. They are a huge part of our family. I am greatly appreciative of her allowing pets to be able to go with us. The condo Is beautifully furnished and feels like home. We will continue going there if Kelli continues to allow pets. We could not imagine going anywhere else. It feels like our second home to us all!" - Beach and yorkie lover, Independence,Louisiana, 08/04/2013
"Awesome. Great place, great view. We will try to become repeat customers. Nothing but positive things to say, not one issue with the condo while we were there. Book it!" - Hud, Grand Bay, AL, 07/18/2013
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Navy Cove. We fished every evening and the beach is a short drive away on the gulf side. We saw the dolphins come feed in the cove every evening, which was a surprise. We will be back. " - Mary S., Arlington, Tx, 07/12/2013
"Month vacation. We loved our vacation at this condo, My only recommendation would be to update the master bedroom by adding a new bedspread. The one there is worn. The den/dining area looks great" - Cris, McCalla. AL, 06/19/2013
Based on the feedback - we have ordered a new comforter and will have it replaced on the next cleaning. Thanks for the review and feedback.
"Nice condo, great views!. Our family stayed at the Navy Cove condo for our Christmas break. We loved the location with views of the gulf, bay, and nature preserve! The condo is attractively situated away from the neon signs and high-rise hotels. We were very pleased with the size of the condo for our 6 adults and 1 dog, cleanliness, and well-equipped kitchen. We loved walks on the relatively empty beach, dinner and karaoke at Tacky Jack's down the peninsula, a Christmas Eve service at a local church, and putt-putt at Pirate's Cove. We would definitey recommend this spot for a quiet family Christmas." - Shannon, Simpsonville, SC, 01/02/2013
"Beautiful Property, beautiful vacation!. Very nice, dog friendly, well maintained, helpful owner, easy reservations and quick return of security deposit: could I ask for more?? Well, only loungers on the deck so I could sleep put there! We loved it, even some rainy weather was nice. We had a wonderful view of the sunrises and the bay and easy access to areas all around the complex. We did not have a boat but would have enjoyed a great dock if we had. The gulf beach is a moderate walk but still a great location. We will gladly stay here again if we can find a time when the unit is not rented." - Scot, Alabama, 01/01/2013
"A lovely holiday. We had a wonderful time in Fort Morgan , we brought our 4 kids , family dog and our little boat . We were a bit nervous the first day if the boat would be ok out in the bay but it worked out beautifully. The kids had a great time , swimming , boating , fishing , catching crabs from the dock , watching their dad take a hook out of a sting ray I think is a memory that will stick with them forever,(we are a catch and release family). The apartment was everything Kelli said and more , very comfy and clean. Our 16 yr old daughter figured out from the video clip that there were VHS players in the bedrooms so she brought all her old Disney videos for the down times, it was a lovely touch . The pool and jacuzzi were so enjoyable after a long hot day but I think my husband and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony , drinking our wine , watching the waves on the beach and the birds in the marsh the most, thank you again Kelli , we will be back." - 4kids ,boat and a dog, Atlanta , 07/16/2012
"Great family vacation spot. We really enjoyed the Navy Cove Condo and the location was fabulous. Not crowded!! Lots to do on the bay side and then over at the Gulf Shore side. The walk was really easy and enjoyed all the views. We felt safe as the gate is kept locked and the rooms are coded. All property was clean and well maintained. Also, enjoyed the swimming pool for the grandkids and the hot tub for the old folks. These were always clean. I will definately recommend this property to my friends and relatives. Our husbands enjoyed some great golf that was right down the street and lots of restaurants nearby that are really good. Our owner answered all my questions right away and made everything very easy with detailed information. We will be back." - Skylar, Cordova, Tennessee, 06/12/2012
"Sandra (Birmingham). We have found PARADISE in L.A. (lower Alabama). This condo is wonderful! Pictures do not do this condo justice. We found it to be very clean & comfortable. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and we cooked almost daily. We caught blue shell crab, flounder, grouper and red fish and cooked them all. We purchased fresh shrimp near by right off the boat. We enjoyed playing in the sand & surf and enjoyed the beautiful sunrise from the balcony over morning coffee. We were treated by the windsurfers on the bay several times during our stay.We stayed a month but it was not long enough! We want to stay even longer next year. We felt very safe & secure on this end of the beach. We were looking for rest & relaxation and we found it & so much more! We will defiantly recommend to family & friends.We are already making plans for next year." - Sandra, Leeds, Al, 11/03/2011
"ALL WE NEEDED AND MORE!. A restful time of quiet and delightful surroundings plus great fishing. The condo was everything promised plus fantastic views from the deck. Walking the beach daily helped to keep up with the alligator's ramblings. Morning coffee and huge flocks of pelicans, gulls, egrets and great blue herons was a treasure on itself. Our guests were immediately at home and enjoyed their visits to the fullest. They left with promises to return upon our invite. Of course, fresh seafood at Tacky Jack's and Wolf Bay Lodge in Foley plus The Original Oyster House and King Neptune's in Gulf Shores as well as The Fish Camp in Orange Beach was THE best! The Navy Cove boating facilities were just fine and access to Gulf Shores Marina for fuel, bait and charter guides made for some delightful trips inshore and beyond. We "loaded the boat" with specks and redfish. The Jack Cravelles on Dixie Bar made for great memories to be long remembered. Thanks Keli, for making our trip so good." - Anonymous, Little Rock, AR, 09/30/2011
"Peaceful, family oriented location. If you are looking for a quite, peaceful, family oriented location, this is a great location. We enjoyed the close proximity of the beach, as well as the pool to relax at on the premises. The condo was well maintained and comfortable. If you have a fishing or ski boat, this is a great little location as well. Powerboats, not so much, this is considered a fishing bay, it's not really a powerboat location. We had a little trouble launching our 40 ft. powerboat from the boat ramp, but, overall, we had a really good experience, I would definitely recommend it!" - Jessica B., Montgomery, TX, 08/17/2011
"Nice Condo. We had a great time! There were 8 of us staying (two families) in the condo and it was very comfortable. The pictures and description of the condo were accurate and the kitchen had everything we needed. The area was quiet and secluded and the tourist area of Gulf Shores was only about a 20 minute peaceful drive away. There was a nice view of the bay from the balcony and the beach was a short walk across the street. Our kids had a blast crabbing off the pier. They caught plenty so thery were never bored. They also loved the pool. Fort Morgan was only a couple miles away and it was very interesting (even for the kids) to visit. Our time there just flew by. Our only regret was that we should have stayed a couple days longer." - Debbie, Spring, Texas, 08/15/2011
"great in spite of it all. Regardless of the bad press re: the oil spill, we still had a great time...the pool is larger than most, not crowded, and the hot tub was a special bonus.
The marina/lagoon was beautiful with well-kept boardwalks everywhere. The breakwater shielded use from anything that might have been in the bay...(we never saw or smelled ANY sign of oil). We caught lots of white seatrout and a few bluecrab....my wife reloaded our aquarium with new things (and shrimp) netted in the lagoon....we walked the beach in the adjacent refuge...we had plenty to do for 2 weeks....JUST RELAXED.
The condo is spacious, comfortable, well decorated and well equipped....as usual, take your pet kitchen knife, but everything else is there.
We WILL be going back. We've gone to W. Beach in Gulf Shores for 5 or 6 years but didn't realize how restful Ft. Morgan can be until we stayed here....the little market at Gulf Pines (5 mins away) has all you need and the drive into Gulf Shores gets much quicker the 2nd or 3rd time.
You'll love it ! Wildlife is everywhere...herons follow you looking for handouts, the pelicans are plentiful and clumsy and the seagulls are...well....gulls.

"Sun and Serenity. Wow! We can not say enough great things about our stay. Not only was it a top notch condo with great furnishings and every little kitchen item you would need but the sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. Even though during our stay we could not go in the ocean we enjoyed the beautiful scenery....and what we missed on ocean side was more than made up on the bay side. Our children as well as the adults and our dog had so much fun in the cove. I don't know if I can name all of the animals we saw but here goes...horseshoe crabs, sand crabs, hermit crabs, flounder, pelicans, an alligator, and even coyotes at sunrise. So many fish were jumping it was a shame we didn't bring our net. This is a great place for any age!
Thanks Kelli for sharing your wonderful place with us!!" - Amy, Fletcher, NC, 08/03/2010
"Loved our stay!. What could have been a big mess turned out even better thanks to Kelli, the owner of both condos we rented. Our first rental was in Perdido Key, FL which was closed due to the oil spill. Kelli suggested her condo in Ft. Morgan, AL which was larger, yet she did not raise the price. Our condo at Ft. Morgan was all we thought it would be (based on the website) and more! It was clean, cute, and well stocked. Kelli went above and beyond to take care of us. When we showed up early (7 am), and our condo was occupied, she let us invade her actual home to sleep and clean up. That was incredibly trusting and generous! We loved eating at the Mellow Mushroom (outstanding pizza), and the seafood place with the neat shops right by it (I can't remember the name!). The only activity we could not do was a dolphin tour, as they were all shut down by the Coast Guard. Otherwise, we had a blast, Kelly is awesome, and our trip was fantastic!! I would gladly recommend Kelli's condos and VRBO for your next vacation." - Katie, Harrah, Oklahoma, 07/22/2010
"Great location, fantastic vacation. We loved staying at Navy Cove and Kelli was great to work with. The location was the best of both worlds with the bay on one side and gulf on the other. The pools are so well maintained and the fish cleaning station came in handy as we were catching pompeno right off the beach. The unit was well equiped with everything we needed for a relaxing week at the beach. You never know what you're going to get so I always pack extra stuff just in case and was pleasantly surprised they had it all. Thanks for everything, Kelli! We'll be back!" - Barb2010, Nashville, Tennessee, 06/05/2010
"We loved our stay at Kell.... We loved our stay at Kelli's condo at Navy Cove. The accomodations were excellant. The area was peaceful and beautiful. We hope to return there in the near future. Thank you, Kelli for helping make our dream vacation a reality" - Sandy W., -, 03/05/2010
"Our stay at Navy Harbor Cove was magnificent. This is the first time staying at the Cove and we loved being there. We go every summer and for the past three years we stayed at the same location, but they decided not to allow pets and I can't leave my little yorkie fur babies behind. I found the Cove and called Kelli which was as sweet as can be and very understanding as far as my pets were concerned. The place was wonderful, very quiet, relaxing, and most important of all fun. We enjoyed it very much and are looking forward to going back next year. Thanks for helping us have a memorable vacation that we will never forget!" - Beach and yorkie lover, Independence,Louisiana, 08/11/2009
"Wonderful Stay. We had a wonderful stay at NC. The drive away from the hustle is so worth it! This is a perfect place for families to stay at. It would accomodate others too. The space was amazing. We walked to the gulf side and swam everyday! We same with Rays and got to see some dolphines too. Going crabbing at night on the bay side was a blast for the kids and us! I'd recommend and have been recommending this place to anyone! Be careful though, you may not want to leave!" - Ohio Vacationers!, Dayton, OH, 08/04/2009
"GREAT VACATION. Our family traveled with our beloved dog for the first time, and we all had a blast, the condo was exceptional, clean, well decorated, and most importantly comfortable, i was worried about not being right on the beach but the bay was BEAUTIFUL, the kids loved the pool, and the beach was just a few steps away, we loved it, I would highly recommend this to anyone especially those that hate to leave their pets behind on vacations, thanks Kelli!!" - gracey, Arab AL, 07/24/2009
"We stayed at Navy Cove ov.... We stayed at Navy Cove over Memorial weekend. The stay was very relaxing and we all enjoyed the beach and bay being so close. We caught several blue crab right behind the property on the bay in daylight. A place to get away from the crowd. Next time I'll bring my boat - nice safe harbor to dock." - Mark W., Pelham, AL, 07/03/2009
"June, 2009. The condo was beautifully decorated, very clean, comfortable, and quiet. It was wonderful sitting on the deck, drinking coffee, and enjoying the view of the bay. The gulf is just across the road, and even in June, it was peaceful and quite.
I would highly recommend this location to friends. We chose Fort Morgan because we could bring our little dog. It is about 20 miles from Gulf Shores, but well worth the extra drive to be away from the noise and traffic.
The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. I would love to make this a yearly destination.l" - Mi Mi, Hoover, AL, 06/21/2009
"Spring break 2009. The condo had everything to make the stay comfortable. The kids each had their own bedroom and tv. My husband and the kids loved to fish off of the dock and we all enjoyed walking on the beach - it was clean and beautiful. The kids enjoyed swimming in the Gulf, even though it was a bit cold when we were there. The hot tub was great to come back to and warm up. Although it is sort of away from it all - it was nice to be away from all of the college spring breakers." - Tami R., Sun Prairie, WI , 05/03/2009
"Stayed two months in Kell.... Stayed two months in Kelli's condo at Navy Cove. Had a great time in a really nice condo. Would recommend to anyone that wants to get away from it all. The area was quiet with great views." - Anonymous, -, 03/17/2009
"Perfect. It does not get any better than this. Well appointed property. Nice bedrooms, kitchen, living room and baths. Secluded beach to walk on with morning coffee." - elizabeth d., St. Petersburg, FL, 12/22/2008
"Guestbook Comment. we stayed here this summer and it was wonderful. we brought our boat and parked it right at the condo. great view of the bay. walk right down to the bay, like having your own private beach. looking forward to staying again in 2009" - Colby B., abbeville,la, 11/19/2008
"What a relaxing Vacation. It was a wonderful place to stay, away from it all, everything that you would in your home you could do here, it lays on the bay which is good for fishing and across the street is the gulf which is a good place to swim and boogy board. It was the first trip that my parents have taken in 21 years and they loved it so much we are ready to go back next year.

"Nature lovers retreat!. If you are looking for a place to unwind with your family and/or friends, then this is the place for you. It is rare to find a place that has views of the bay, gulf, and wildlife area. Our family really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Even though it is about 20 miles from Gulf Shores there is a lot to do in the area. The drive back in to Gulf Shores is not too bad. We took our jet skis down and really enjoyed the bay. I have never seen so many dolphins in one area. We had a pod of at least 20 that hung out with us for about 2 hours while we were on our jet skis. My husband and son really enjoyed fishing every day off of the docks. The pool was a bit chilly when we were down in April, but the hot tub was nice. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck in the mornings drinking coffee and in the evening watching the sunset with a nice glass of wine. The unit was very comfortable and the beds slept really well. (There were 5 of us plus 2 dogs)
We really enjoyed walks on the bay and walks on the beach. It was a very relaxing vacation for us. Our 6 year old son had a great time. He said he wanted to move there!!! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to get away and enjoy nature. It was very comfortable and the owners were very easy to work with. It is great for older people as well as for children. The youngest in our family was 6 and the oldest 72. The unit was very clean and nicely decorated." - Scuba Mom, Marietta, Ga, 04/21/2008
"Navy Cove. This condo is quite new, clean, nicely furnished and newly painted. It has four TVs, a luxurious king size bed in the master suite and a great view of the Intracoastal Waterway. The ocean is a short walk away and there is a very nice pool and jacuzzi at the location. There is a parking garage with an elevator to your floor. Navy Cove is very secluded and private, away from it all. Our family really loved our stay, we just wished the weather had been better and we could have stayed longer. If you are looking for a quiet family setting, you'll love Navy Cove." - Kay B., Louisville, KY, 12/28/2007
"Very peaceful and enjoyable.... This was a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The condo was very clean and pretty. We loved the decor of the condo. The sofas and beds were very comfortable. We will be coming back and we highly recommend it." - Margerite, Fultondale, Alabama, 09/01/2007
