About Edie Jacobs

Two families - brother and sister with our spouses own this home. We all share a love of the beach.

Edie Jacobs purchased this house in 2010

Why Edie Jacobs chose Fort Morgan

This home was owned by our Aunt and Uncle for years - when the property became available we were thrilled to have the opportunity to open the house for other families to make wonderful memories here - like the memories we cherish of our time spent at Fort Morgan.

What makes this house unique

SUNNY SURF SIDE is a large family oriented home with a great pool area and just yards from the beach - perfect for family gatherings.

Totally enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our family. The owners were quick to answer when I had a few questions. I would recommend this to anyone who has a large family it will be great. The beach is close and the pool is fantastic.

We had such a great time. From beach time to kids playing monopoly to playing at the pool.. and even an ice cream truck 2 times a day. Edi was very pleasant and easy to work with.

Great for large families

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We had lots of room for everyone, easy beach access, well stocked kitchen, an extra frig for drinks and just so many little details that make it easy to enjoy your vacation. We would definitely come back to this house again.

Wonderful property with a fantastic pool and short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 18 (11 adults, 7 children) enjoyed our stay immensely at Sunny Surfside! I was worried that we would not have enough room for our group, but I didn't need to worry once we arrived and saw all the wonderful spaces in the house, on the various decks and patios. We had plenty of room to spread out!

The pool was perfect and we especially loved the very short walk to the beach! Our group saw dolphins several days, enjoyed a practice flyover from a Blue Angel, toured Fort Morgan and giggled while trying to find crabs on the beach after dark.

The kitchen had all the pots, pans and utensils we needed to prepare breakfast and supper each day. It was wonderful having a washer and 2 dryers available for use as well!

We were not prepared for the need to supply our own toilet paper, Kleenex and paper towels (I might have missed that being noted in the posting), but Wal-Mart was a short 20-min drive away for groceries and paper products.

Our entire group LOVED the house and would recommend to other families! When we did have questions or an item needing to be addressed, Edie was very quick to respond. Thank you!

First family vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

Very nice. Roomy, with a great view out the windows looking at the ocean. We spent most of our time upstairs in the kitchen/family area. It is updated & easily fit 11 of us.
