Happy as Clams at the Bees Knees

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect week spent at the Bees Knees! Our family of ten loved our Fort Morgan vacation with coffee on the porch each morning, comfortable bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, and an “ at home atmosphere” throughout the house. Our children loved spending time downstairs in their “ lounge” or swimming in the pools. We loved that there were spaces to be together or spaces to be alone. Harris Management was quick to respond to our questions and very pleasant. We can’t wait to go back!!

New, Spacious, & A Great Value

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

- Newer/modern property

- A lot of space for the money

- Split floor plan, open livingroom-kitchen-dinning area

- Each bedroom has their own bathroom

- Large master bathroom with walk-in shower

- Fully stocked kitchen for meals, including grilling

- Only a couple of blocks from the beach

- Beach is relatively private (not located next to large condos)

- Includes an outdoor shower/garden hose

- Outdoor sandpit for kids with sand toys

- Has a few beach chairs

Cons:

- New construction before 7:30 am

- Pots and pan were a little weathered/scratched

- Mold and bugs in the ice machine

- Issues inside with ants & water bugs

- Issues outside with biting sand flies and gnats

- Carpet was not fully clean (visible animal hair)

- A couple of blocks from the beach

- About 25 minutes from downtown gulf shores

- No direct path to beach boardwalks

- No clear views of the beach

- Thermostat rests to 80 degrees during the day

- SOFT mattresses

- Slow Internet, they frown on streaming

- Outdoor shower needs a new showerhead

This is a newer property that is reasonably priced and offers a lot of room. We greatly appreciated the split floor plan and that each bedroom has their own bathroom. The independent ice machine was a luxury and great for filling small coolers. The property is about 25 minutes from downtown Gulf Shores (Walmart, restaurants, etc). I would recommend stopping at the grocery store on your way in so you are not constantly running into town. The property is about two blocks from the beach and there isn't a path from the property to the boardwalk, so you may consider loading up your car and dropping everything off at the boardwalk. The beach is beautiful and not overcrowded. There is an outdoor shower and a garden hose is located on the other side of the grill. The property offers a few beach chairs and sand toys. The new construction before 7:30 am was a bit annoying but not much can be done about it. There were mold and bugs in the ice machine when we arrived, which we emptied and cleaned. We also had issues with ants but ant traps addressed this issue. Biting sand flies and gnats were issues outside the property. Animal hair was visible on bedroom carpets, a cleaning crew was dispatched but they used a shop vac, which doesn't clean carpets well. The mattresses we very soft and tough on those with bad backs. The internet is slow and they frown on streaming. Overall, my family and I greatly enjoyed our stay and the pros outweigh the cons.

Beautiful, very well done home

  • 5 of 5

Two things for you all to check on, those sand fleas were vicious, we bought some yard fogger and it helped for a day. The bunk room on the right when you walk in has an odor coming from the top bunk that smells of urine the pre-teens would not go near it, so we pulled out the convenient trundle and it was covered in crumbs, we did find the vacuum and cleaned it ourselves.

Loved the ice maker and we even tried the ice cream maker.

Thanks for having us!

Owner's Response: Hi Maggie! Thank you for the great review! We apologize about the issues that you had during your stay. We have reached out to an exterminator in regards to the sand fleas and he stated that the sand fleas are out of our control since there is not a source to exterminate. We also apologize for the issue with the bunk bed and the trundle. We will follow up with the cleaners as this is clearly unacceptable. We hope that you still enjoyed your time at the beach. Thank you for letting Harris Properties help you find your perfect spot in the sand. We hope to host you again soon!

House was awesome, community not as great

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing and perfect for the number of people we had stay, but the overall condition of the community was a little outdated and did not offer much besides the beach. The beach was only a 5 min walk which was great. However, the hot tub was not hot, and the pools were very cold, there was no fitness room or anything else there either which was a little disappointing...

Owner's Response: Hi Natalie, We are glad that you enjoyed your time at The Bee's Knees. We apologize that you were disappointed with the amenities. There is no hot tub in Morgantown, the kiddie pool is not heated. For future reference, try searching by amenity so you can get everything that you want such as a fitness room and a hot tub. Thank you for letting Harris Properties help you find your perfect spot in the sand, we hope to host you again soon!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a week at this rental. This was a great place to celebrate a girls week with my mom. All the bedrooms are specious and each bedroom has access to a bath. The balcony allowed us to spend time outside looking toward the beach. We felt very safe staying here. We loved the open family room and kitchen. I am a repeat VRBO and Homeway user and this deserves to be on the top on the heap. Even though the location is off the beaten there are a few restaurants a few miles away. The beach is sandy white gorgeous.
