4 bedroom, 4 bathroom beach front home
Clean Slate is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom single family home directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is at your back door and the water is just steps away. Our home offers a break from overcrowded beaches, free from the congestion associated with condominiums.
Clean Slate features tastefully appointed furnishings provide the comfortable environment for a vacation or retreat. When Clean Slate is not rented, we (the owners) occupy the home. This assures the best care and maintenance (and it shows). The home is very clean.
There are two master suites with two additional bedrooms. The home sleeps twelve people comfortably, all in beds (no convertibles or pullouts). The main living area is tiled, with area rugs. Each spacious bedroom is carpeted, has a private bath, ceiling fan, television, and more.

About Helen or Dan
In the old days of nautical navigation, a slate tablet was kept near the helm on which the watch keeper would record speeds, distances, headings and tacks during his stay at the watch. At the change of watch, the slate tablet would be wiped clean. The new watch would always start with a clean slate. In a similar way today, we refer to a new beginning or a second chance as starting with a 'clean slate'. Our family has found that we are able to come here, forget about the things that worry us, review our plans for the future and get a fresh start upon leaving. We hope you also can come visit and leave with a clean slate!
Helen or Dan purchased this House in 2003
Why Helen or Dan chose Fort Morgan
Whether you want a very active vacation or just want to lounge on the beach, Clean Slate and the surrounding area can accommodate your desires. If it is quiet-time you seek, Fort Morgan is the beach for you. Off-the-beaten path, Fort Morgan's allure is undeniable. Single family homes nestled among the dunes translate into 'no-crowding' on the beautiful white-sand beaches. Nature preserves afford safe haven for wildlife and a birders' paradise. For those in a more active mood, championship golf courses await. A full service marina with fishing charters is just down the road. Great restaurants invite you to sample the local culinary treasures. The land of Fort Morgan is so pristine, you can imagine being the first to discover it. Scrub oaks hide colorful chameleons and nesting robins. Nesting American Bald Eagles and Ospreys plunge from the heights to secure meals for their hatch-lings. Pelicans drift serenely overhead, then suddenly plunge into the water. Pods of dolphins play in the water. The stars crowd the night sky in a spectacular display - you can actually see the Milky Way. To walk along the shores of Fort Morgan is to discover a place where time has seemingly distanced itself from the business of life. Perhaps it is the shape of the land, a long peninsula, which makes this place unique. Or perhaps something magical drifted in on the tropical breeze and simply never left.
What makes this House unique

Best family vacation experience!
The house, the porch, the beach!!! We have rented before and this was by far the most well equipped, cleanest, and most welcoming home in which we've ever stayed. The owners are absolutely dear and immediately responsive if you have a question. Nothing is lacking in the kitchen - it's a dream. The beds are wonderful, TV's and bathrooms for each bedroom is a perfect set-up for either a large family group, several families, or girls' trip.
What can you say about the beach? Absolutely fabulous. We had such fun watching the crabs scuttle around, the pelicans diving in the waves, dolphins playing in the afternoon, and the lulling sound of the water. If it rains, enjoy sitting on the screened porch anyway.
Love the lack of chaos that Fort Morgan living brings. We plan to return, and return, and return.
We loved having y'all there! We are so happy to know that others love this spot as much as we do. Especially the screened-in porch. We do our best to keep everything up-to-date and well maintained. Clean Slate, once you've been... :-)
Great home and a great location
Well stocked home and the owners are great to work with and easy to reach if you have any questions. Very quiet and private beach, and dog friendly which is great since we always travel with our dog. I would highly recommend this home for your next beach front vacation.
We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Clean Slate. Let us know when you are ready to return!
Like coming home
Love this place ! Well kept, well stocked, great beds, awesome porch. It feels like home. You will always enjoy your stay at this home. Rent it ! Just not when WE plan to come back :))))
Love having y'all there, especially for feedback during storms. The photos were awesome! Thanks for taking such great care of "our" spot. Just let us know when you choose your 2018 week. :-)
House was nice. We had beautiful weather.
We went for a week of relaxation on the beach and that is what we had😃�
Great House! Great Location! Great Vacation!
Loved our week here! Wish we could've stayed longer! We returned to to Fort Morgan after several years and chose to return to this house again. We loved it the first time & it was even better this trip. No complaints! It has the most well equipped kitchen of any house we have ever rented. Beautifully decorated & very comfortable for 2 families with our kids ranging from 8-20. We will be back again!
Thanks so much! What a lovely review. Guests like you are why we work to keep our home well maintained and up-to-date. So happy to have you back in the Clean Slate Family. We hope to have you back soon.
50th Birthday Celebration
Decided to splurge for a 50th birthday. Clean Slate did not disappoint! The view from the living/dining/kitchen area was stunning! Very comfy bed. Can't say enough about how clean the house was. Very homey also! Location was perfect. I'm not crazy about staying in a condo/commercial area because of the noise. Very peaceful area. Hopefully will be able to return again. Definitely recommend this house!
We're so glad that Clean Slate met your expectations. The view is truly awesome - from fantastic sunrises to surreal sunsets there is something new every day. We like the 'homey" comment. We strive to make our 2nd home a very comfortable place.
p.s. We believe we have the best cleaning team around!!! We will pass along the accolade!
