About Glenn & Rene

We fell in love with the Fort Morgan area during a visit many years ago. We've celebrated family time in the area every year since. We love visiting in the peak of summer, during the fall season, as a family for Thanksgiving or Christmas and during the fresh days of spring. In 2010, we took the plunge and bought Recovery Room West. Then in 2016, Recovery Room East. We hope you enjoy our little piece of beach paradise as much as we do!

Glenn & Rene purchased this house in 2010

Why Glenn & Rene chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Fort Morgan is a wonderful family beach area. Our home has been decorated with love and with families in mind.

What makes this house unique

Directly on the beach - what more need I say?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great beachfront property for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

- lots of space to spreadout for 14+ people in beds and additional on sleeper couches

- very responsive owners and property manager

- location, location, location: quiet and beautiful neighborhood and beach

- onsite pool shared only with next door duplex neighbor

- flexibility of layout for adults, children and large groups

Cons:

- Hard to find any significant flaws that would be a barrier, we would definitely book again.

- Some minor recommendations: Some more regular maintenance like painting, deck repair, and clean out of stuff people "leave behind" would help this place really "shine". Have rented many times in Vrbo and this place is definitely above average so this is just a minor suggestion to make it 5+ stars

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate your comments and compliments. We try extremely hard to provide a place that people enjoy and want to visit again. We will be addressing those "minor" issues you mentioned during the office season. Thanks again for vacationing with us and looking forward to have you stay with us again. Glenn and Rene

Struck Visit to Gulf Shores Fort Morgan - 3178 Ponce de Leon

  • 5 of 5

Overall we felt our expectations were realized. House in good shape overall.

We had many questions in beginning before travel to destination and Larry Gordon

was exceptional to work with and always responded to our inquiries VERY QUICKLY

and always helped answer our questions and possible concerns. The Home was perfect for our needs. The Pool and the great weather (lucky after Harvey) were the highlights for us. Also timing was lucky in that not that many people on beach this time of year. Larry was evan willing and able to meet us a couple of months prior to stay and let us take a peek at the home and surroundings, very much appreciated.

We enjoyed our stay very much, loved the family atmosphere and the location.

  • 4 of 5

First of all, thanks for the 2 food baskets in the fridge, that was very nice. Very nice beach home, very spacious. Loved having the pool and being right on the beach, that was the reason we booked your home. Kitchen was very well stocked with anything you would need.

When we arrived as soon as we walked in there was a "dip cup" sitting on the stairs, maybe left by your cleaning service. Was very disappointed with the cleanliness of the home. The bedroom we stayed in, I will call master with balcony, the night stand and TV remote was so dusty I had to clean before setting anything on it. My daughter in law was showering and water wouldn't drain, she pulled a large clump of hair out of the drain. The floors in the bathrooms and base of toilets were terrible, I know they had not been cleaned for awhile.

The top bunk beds were not made, we needed all 4, had 4 grandsons staying in that room.

The pantry door was filthy, either needs to be cleaned good or painted.

I know I am being maybe to picky but I would want to know what a terrible job my cleaning service was doing if it was my home.

We have stayed in many, many VRBO homes and they have been super clean, was just disappointed.

My whole family loved everything about our stay but they were even pointing things out to me.

Just to let you know that Larry Gordon was very easy to work with in booking your home and letting us know place to grocery shop, places to eat, giving us a code to enter home if we got there early if cleaning service was done.

Would love to stay again maybe in 2019, we loved the area, but would hope for a cleaner home next time. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about my review. 314-807-1239

Owner's Response: Linda, Thanks for your review. We will discuss with Larry and ensure that the cleaning staff is made aware of these issues. We take great pride in our home and want our guests to enjoy them as much as we do. Again we apologize for your dissatisfaction and will make sure the cleaning staff does a better job. Glenn/Rene

Couldn't ask for a better house for our large family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen to cook is there. The extra ice maker was great. The closeness of the pool & the beach to the house was so nice with 3 small kiddos in our family. There's plenty of parking for everyone. Larry is the BEST!! If you need something he us very prompt to respond to any questions. If you prefer a quieter family beach away from the crowds you will not be disappointed. I totally recommend taking the ferry across from Dauphin Island. The house is only 3 miles from the ferry & it saved us hours in traffic!!

Voss Stay 5/13/-5/20/17

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation! House was very nice and fit our group perfectly. Very easy to book thru Home -A- Way AP. House was right on beach and area was nice and quiet. The pool was great, especially with the smaller toddlers when the ocean became rough. Had all kitchen items you could possibly need. Had to move grill out to front of unit to use. Great family vacation, looking forward to coming back!
