Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful week we had at your beach house in Ft. Morgan. I just can’t say enough how special I think your house is. I loved the view from the kitchen as I cooked, and sitting out on the porch hearing the surf was so special. The walk over to the beach is simple! …and pleasant! Napping on the swing below is a treat too. We loved the black out drapes in the master bedroom! OHHH I want to go back!

Extremely impressed!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was roomy, super clean, had a comfortable home-like atmosphere, and was only one row away from the BEACH!! Highly recommend this house and using this rental company. They have an app that is super convenient and user-friendly! We will be back to stay here again!! Hands down.

Was short on a lot.

  • 2 of 5

There was no gas for the grill so I had to travel to the station to get it.

Electric went out the final night so we left after being without power for five hours.

Got kind of hot while we waited for the power to come back on.

Would not want to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank You Ellis for your review on your recent stay. I am terribly sorry that this is how your vacation started and ended. I show that we offered to bring you a new propane tank, but I can understand your frustration with not having one initially. I am not sure why the electric went out unless we had a bad storm, this does not happen very often. I feel assured your next stay on the Gulf Coast will be better than this one. Kind Regards,

The house was perfect for our family. Loved being so close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The furniture was comfortable. The kitchen was efficient. With three females in our family we loved the arrangements of the two bathrooms with the extra sink and vanity area! The spacious decks were very nice. We loved the quiet and peacefulness of Fort Morgan. We would love to come back to this area and home in the future.

Great week just off the beach

  • 3 of 5

Wife and I enjoyed our stay, comfy bed, nice kttchen, very relaxing. Home needs some work on the deck. Safety issues if you have small children. Some railing not attached and some broken spindles. Decking has nails sticking up. House itself was very nice and cozy. Everything you need, would rent again.
