About Carla Kapeskas

My husband and I love Fort Morgan! If you have not been yet, you must check it out! Perfect location for families! Low density, private beaches, the way a family holiday should be!

Why Carla Kapeskas chose Alabama

We have traveled many places and the geography in Fort Morgan was just so attractive. We fell in love with it and decided this would be a great location to spend summers with our children.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Cheers!

What makes this house unique

Our house is home away from home. Because we have 2 children we thought of every detail that would make family vacation easy and headache free. We have tons of amenities for everyone. We love the fact that families are building special memories at our property.

Perfect family home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful home! It was perfect for my family of 7, my brother's family of 4 and our mother. We all had the "right" space (because of the king sized beds in 3 rooms) and the bunk room (with a queen/double combo) was amazing for a group of cousins! Everything about the house was as the owner describes and more. Her attention to detail was greatly appreciated and made the welcome so warm and our stay so comfortable. For example, there is a step stool in the "kids" bathroom for reaching the sink; she provides a rolling cart to get all the beach gear in and out of the beach easily; the bath towels are NICE--not cheap and flimsy but something that you might have in your own home; two coffee pots, plenty of pots and pans; the home is well decorated and nicely appointed, so that you feel like you are in a nice home, not just a half-way done rental. We appreciated all the details and it was SO close to the beach and the pool was a good change when we needed it. We would love to return and highly recommend this property.

This home is a perfect family vacation home. The bedrooms are large with private baths. There are two large decks which are great for eating, sunning, and hanging out and watching the ocean. The beachfrint location is fabulous!!! You are at the end of the beach and do not have to fight crowds for a spot in the sand!! We had 2 families and gramma and all had plenty of space. Thanks again for sharing this home with us!! Hopefully we will be back!!

Minnesota Family Loved This House

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfect for our family's beach vacation! We had 6 adults and 3 children, ages 12, 11 and 9. There was plenty of space for us to spread out with bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. Loved the gated community concept. Nice quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of town. Sassy Bass is 5 minutes away with good pizza and anything you would need for quick essentials. We all enjoyed watching the dolphins in the morning and hunting for crabs on the beach at night. Even had an unexpected flyover of the Blue Angels one morning! Thank you, Carla and Remis, for sharing your beautiful home with us. You were great to work with during the rental process from start to finish.

Extra Nice Ocean Front Family Home

  • 5 of 5

With 5 bedrooms, this home was perfect for my wife and I, son, daughter, and their children. Used all of the bedrooms strategically with 3 children under the age of two on our trip! Carla has everything you need at her beautiful home and this includes a wide assortment of beach chairs and toys with rolling carts for transport to the beach. We experienced 3 pretty good storms while there and not a drop of water or issue from them which says how well the home is constructed. We would definitely go back to this home and the nice secluded area that Ft. Morgan beach offers. (Best close local restaurant is Sassy Bass...skip Tacky Jack's.)

We had a great week here. .

  • 4 of 5

It's a very comfortable house and has a well stocked kitchen with two coffee makers and plenty of pots & pans etc.. The sand toys and beach cart were especially handy as well as the baby/toddler high chair, booster seats and children's dishes. We would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding Support

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year to stay in this beautiful, well appointed home. This was the first year that we experienced any issue with maintenance - the downstairs A/C went out. I texted the owner at about 9:00am and there was a repairman on site within an hour and a half who quickly diagnosed the problem, contacted the owner to get approval for the repairs, and had the A/C up and going before 4:30pm. This owner has been supportive each year with answers to questions about the house and keeping us informed about issues with the area pool and changes to area security but this showed us the extent to which her promise to support renters will go.
