Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at sand n sanity for over five years, and we love it. It's right on the beach. Fort Morgan is a beautiful, quiet, family friendly place to vacation. We have visited spring, summer, and fall, and always have a great time. The house has all the amenities needed to make you feel at home. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are comfortable. And it's always very clean!! Our big kids love sleeping in the loft. I'm almost hesitant to give such a great review because it such a treasure for our family!! This trip we had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they are a very sweet couple. They have always been friendly and great to work with each time. I would highly recommend this property without hesitation.

multi-generational family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 3 generations, had a wonderful time at Sand-n-Sanity! The house was exactly like the pictures, except for the large Dune in front of the house now. It was great to sit on the deck and watch the water. The kids spent SO MUCH TIME hanging out in the loft area.

The water is a little bit of a walk if you have anyone with walking problems. There is a large sand area for the kids to play in but if you have very small children, it is hard to see them because of the dune. Our youngest was 9, so we had no worries.

Overall, we had Super fun times and good memories.

Owner's Response: Many questions have been asked about the dunes in front due to this review. The dunes have built up in front of the house but the Gulf can still be seen from the deck except for a small area directly in front of them. I will be more than happy to send pics of the view taken recently. The dunes are extremely important in protecting the house in the event of a storm & make an awesome backdrop for photos. Hoping this will clarify this statement for those who are wondering.

Beautiful home, prestine beach and whitest sand ever...from Fort Worth, Texas

  • 5 of 5

We are actually resubmitting our review from two years ago because the owners lost a lot of their wonderful comments when they posted to VRBO.

First off, the grumpy guy from Texas with the completely inaccurate and rude comments is wrong - he might live in Texas, but he sure is not Texan because we don't treat people that way.

Our family LOVED this property and absolutely enjoyed our vacation. We didn't leave the house except for maybe some fresh fish or groceries at the nearby Publix (there is also a well stocked convenience store within walking distance.) The kids were safe an able to go out in the sand a play volleyball, soccer, build sand castles and even swim with us supervising from the balcony. My daughters loved the loft and thought their little space was very private. There is plenty of room to walk around up there - the ladder is a little tricky, but not for the kids of course.

My father came down from Dothan. He used to be in the real estate and property management business for 15 years on Bald Head Island, NC. He doesn't give many compliments, but he was impressed with all of the amenities, decorations, quality of beds/bedding and how well the house was maintained. He could tell that a "really great family owned that house". So for you grumpy guy - I'd like to see you maintain a house this prestine that is right on the Gulf and has survived many floods, storms, and hurricanes.

We loved the little room downstairs too. It is decorated for kids, but the adults liked it to sneak away for some quality grown up conversations. We puzzeled like crazy during the hot parts of the day. P.S. Be sure to get the tent/chair company to come set up your tent for your stay. They are punctual, professional and very reasonable. Definitely worth the investment.

And, as long as there isn't a burn ban - you can buy fireworks year round. Us and the neighbors did 100s of dollars worth of Fireworks. The whole strip within viewing distance was cheering us on to do more! So much fun, but be sure to pick up your mess that night.

This was wonderful wonderful wonderful --- I'm on this page because I am about to book two weeks next summer NOW. I am already ready to be there...

I hope this review was helpful for you.

Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sand-N-Sanity in June 2014. We had a wonderful stay and the pictures are just like they show on the website. As soon as you walk in you feel at home. We had two teenage boys that loved the loft! We are planning on returning next year and are counting down the days! We loved the house and the view from the deck.

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5

This is a very family friendly house. The photos and description are accurate. The house was clean and full of amenities to make our vacation more relaxing so we could enjoy time with our grandchildren. The kitchen is well stocked and is updated. I really like the book that the owners leave full of all sorts of good information. The history and the building of the sand dune which is right in front of the house was explained in the book therefore we all treated it with respect. We have been going to Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan for 20 years this spring and this was the first time I received a courtesy call from the owner to make sure everything was in order. It was also the first time for us to rent VRBO. We were impressed with this rental and I know we will be back. Our entire family gave it a 5 star. Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation to the Gulf yet! The house had everything we needed for 5 kids (2-13) and 6 adults. The kitchen was fully stocked, house was clean, and the beach was amazing! The folder with information on the house itself and the area was a special touch. We caught fish, swam, boogie boarded and walked the beaches looking for shells. We have been to the area several times, and will call for this house from here on out.
