About the property

The Sea-Esta is a true vacation retreat located just steps from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

This house is set up to help provide a truly wonderful vacation with a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, outdoor charcoal grill, wooden deck chairs and table, large wrap around deck with gates for small children or pets.

About Andrew

I was born and raised in Weir, Mississippi and have always loved the Alabama Gulf Coast, especially the Ft. Morgan area.

Andrew purchased this house in 2003

Why Andrew chose Alabama

I searched for a long time until I found the property that was right for me. And when I found it I knew this was the one!

What makes this house unique

One of the benefits I truly enjoy with this property is the location and how quiet and peaceful it is compared to most beach properties. I have always loved coming here and when I'm not here, I enjoy sharing it with others so they can also enjoy the ultimate beach experience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the hospitality. It felt just like home, we had a very enjoyable time. Looking forward to next year and maybe this fall.

A Perfect Beach Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our adventure to Ft. Morgan over Easter weekend, and especially to Sea-Esta, was so perfect. The weather was awesome+ and the beach beautiful. We were looking for a dog-friendly beach, and found almost all of the locals and the few other visitors we encountered to be friendly and accommodating. Sea-Esta is spacious and thoughtfully designed and outfitted -- satellite TV in every bedroom and also in the spacious common area/living room/kitchen. GREAT shower! LARGE deck on 3 sides of the house (with gate at the top of the stairs to contain dogs and young kids), including a great screened porch with swing! Shower under deck to wash off the sand when returning from the beach. Very short walk to beach. Quiet. Lovely all round.

Especially after driving on "Condo Row" between Perdido Key and Gulf Shores, we found Ft. Morgan and Sea-Esta to be perfectly apart from the spring break crowd, but close enough for supplies and restaurants.

And Andrew is the greatest host. A terrific guy. On top of all the details and available by text if you need him.

PS: if it is your first time, DEFINITELY take advantage of the "beach express" off I-65! Makes the last leg go ever so much faster.

Best beach house we have ever been to

  • 5 of 5

Great family vaction spot,close enough to town to go to dinner but away from the crowds.love how quite the beach was plus the beach was only about a 100 yards or less from the front door. Kids loved it as much as we did. We will definitely be returning in the future.

So Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Sea-Esta and enjoyed it all. The house was very clean and the furniture comfortable. We loved the master suite! The views of the beach couldn't be beat and the deck was wonderful when we just wanted to sit and enjoy! The shower and swing downstairs was great and we enjoyed parking our bikes there. Our golden retriever loved the dog friendly beach! So beautiful! Andrew was easy to work with and very responsive to our questions. I recommend this house to anyone (and already have!)

Nice house but slightly dated

  • 3 of 5

Andrew did a fabulous job working with me prior to our stay and answering all my questions. From a customer service standpoint, I was VERY pleased.

The furniture was a little dated but the beds slept fine. We cooked a few nights and noted that the kitchen had some pans but not very many. The grill outside has seen better days but I liked that they was a charcoal starter available. The house needs some repair work done, but I'm very observant and not everyone may notice. The shower in the smaller bathroom was dirty and the faucet leaked. We really enjoyed the deck and screened-in porch but there were some nails/screws sticking up in places on the deck which could be a hazard if you're barefoot or have kids running around it. Also the screen on the porch was torn in places.

If you take a dog, be VERY careful about where you let your dog potty. There were lots of sand-spurs in the yard and I had to pull several from my shoes and the dog's paws. Also you have to walk through a vacant lot to get to the beach, but it wasn't a big deal for us. I just wanted to make sure we weren't trespassing on anybody's property.

In spite of some the flaws I would consider staying here again. I loved how dog-friendly and not crowded the beaches were which was the MAIN reason we looked for houses in Fort Morgan.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing SeaEsta for your vacation and for the feedback. I do realize that the furniture is not newer but that is the only way we can remain pet friendly, which is important to us being pet owners ourselves. we tried having new furniture 3 years ago and we had a guest who let their dog destroy pieces and had to replace bedding, couches and 2 chairs. we do make sure everything is clean and welcoming for each guest. After a full summer of rentals I do know that some things can need repair that is why I welcome all guests to get in touch with me with any repair concerns. I can't fix things if I am not made aware of them during your stay and am more than willing to take care of anything the guests need quickly. Some cosmetic issues are normal but I need to know about nails on decking, and any other such safety concerns, to have fixed immediately. We do know the owners of the 5 vacant beach lots across the street and do have their permission to use them for beach access as long as we do not disturb the dunes. we are also working on getting rid of all the sand spurs from yard but is a long and tedious process because they grow anywhere there is vegetation like a weed. Guests having a safe,relaxing and memorable stay will always be our top priority and hope you come stay again.
