Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

You'll be delighted by the decor of this lovely coastal cottage - beautiful wood floors throughout the home. With flat screen TVs in the living room and all 3 bedrooms (all with satellite channels as well!), wireless internet, fully furnished kitchen, and full size washer and dryer, you can experience all the comforts of home while on vacation. The owners of this wonderful home have recently added a patio area complete with fire pit and wrought iron seating for you to enjoy. One of the two community pools is nearby. And, this pool is a zero entry pool - which is great for little ones! Linens are provided for all beds as well as bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths and kitchen towels.

Things to do in the area include: enjoying the gorgeous beaches and beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico, shelling, fishing, bird watching, hiking, biking, shopping, dining out and more!

The wildlife refuge is a 7,000 acre nature preserve that offers several easy trails through saw grass, marsh, and slash pine forest where you can encounter 500 different wildlife animals and bird species. The Fort Morgan Peninsula is in the bird and butterfly migration route. In early spring and late fall, the whole peninsula is alive with birds and butterflies including Monarchs and Gulf Fritillaries. In addition to the usual gulls and sand pipers, you may find kestrel, osprey, great blue heron, and several different species of hawks, including sharp-shinned and Cooper's. Bring your camera because you won't want to miss a photo of that American Alligator or the other wonderful animals and beautiful plants of the wildlife refuge.

Reviewer Comments:

We absolutely loved the beach house! The location, space, amenities were perfect! I liked that there was an app to use for the trip with tons of info too. My only frustration was how difficult it was to get a hold of someone for help. I tried repeatedly to get a hold of someone before the trip to ask about the property, through VRBO, and would just get autoreplies that the dates were full. Very frustrating. Then, we couldn't figure out how to work the tv to get local channels. I called on Monday morning around 9:30. The recording said it was office hours and someone would call me back. I left a message and nobody ever did. We were nervous with the approaching storm and needed local weather and/or local contacts and felt very precarious with the storm. Coming and no local support. Ultimately, we left early due to weather.

Reviewer Comments:

When my family first arrived we were greeted by an alligator just a few feet from our front door. The real estate associate immediately called in someone, although he told me this is Alabama you're gonna see alligators. This was unacceptable because I have a 2 year old and we had 2 other young children with us. This was also a duplex which was never disclosed. The pull out bed in the living area was literally you laying on springs. The 10 minute walk to the beach was a joke it took longer than that to get there. So needless to say we were not happy at all when we arrived. The real estate agent tried to make it right by refunding our money, which would have been great but in the heart of summer at the beach, there was literally no where for us to stay. We drive over 800 miles to get there and there was no way we could go home. After searching for somewhere else to stay with no luck, I called the real estate agent and let her know the circumstances and asked if we could get a discount for all of our troubles. My question continued to get ignored. So we thought maybe when we got our security deposit back it would show up with some more money for the discount. Well it didn't. With as nice as the real estate agent was I would never rent from them again.

Owner's Response: Cecilya, I am so sorry you were disappointed in the property. As soon as we heard about the alligator we did send someone out immediately. Our property manager also assisted in trying to find you other accommodations, but at that point you had made the decision to stay at the property. We were also happy to provide a mattress topper as soon as we heard about the discomfort of the sleeper sofa, however sofa sleepers are not the greatest comfort for adults. Unfortunately we can not give refunds for circumstances out of our control. Typically this property receives wonderful reviews, and we have never had complaints about these matters before. Although we cannot give a refund, we would be happy to offer you a discount on your next stay.

We want to come back every year to the same place, we love the location, the privacy, the convenience for our boat, the well decorated super clean house and hope that Fort Morgan area will not get as crowded and populated as Gulf Shores.
