About Susan Keen

I have owned another home in this neighborhood for the past six years and have loved every minute. Now I have decided to offer this new home for YOU to enjoy what I have been enjoying for the past six years. You will have Peace,Tranquility and Relaxation.

Susan Keen purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan Keen chose Fort Morgan

The locaction is close enough to everything, but not so close that you can't enjoy privacy and quiet time on a not so crowded beach.

What makes this house unique

Open and spacious enough for ANY gathering or Special EVENT; i.e.,Multi-Family Vacations, corporate retreats, family reunions, Golf outings, Anniversary celebrations, etc.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

First I want to thank Susan and her husband Jerry Keen for having such an awesome house! My husband and I, and our family have been coming down to this area for almost 30 years. My youngest of 4 , proposed to and wanted to get married on this beach. It truly was fate that I found Susan's Sand Castle, not many houses down there allow Wedding's. After reading the reviews, I chose this house. Reviews are very important to me. This is the first review I have ever written, but I feel it is very important. I was host of the house responsible for making this event go perfectly and surrounded by things that could make it happen. Every time I turned around I said to myself, she did not miss a beat. This house was the most stocked and prepared house for a beach experience that I have ever been to. They did a lot of little things that were not expected but made you feel welcomed, and excited you were there. The love and care for the house showed. I'll start with the bedrooms; all five spectacular! Plenty of drawers in the bedrooms and in the bathrooms for all your things. Something that you cannot always count on. She advertises that she has two master bedrooms, but I would consider also a third could be called a master. With having its own bathroom and a beautiful private deck. But there truly is one master, (all of the other are very comparable). It also has its own private deck and a bathroom to die for! The kitchen is stocked with everything you could imagine you need for a kitchen. You name it and it was there. Two iceboxes, a separate ice machine, pantry, washer dryer off the kitchen. And if the weather was bad I really could've pulled it off under the house. The deck was my attraction to the house. We had about 50 people. I rented tables and chairs and a Arbor for the beach. The boardwalk from the deck over the dunes was more than I could've ever dreamed for. Another Plus for this house is that they recently changed the rules in Gulf Shores. You cannot leave anything on the beach. You must remove everything nightly. Which means when you rent a beach house , you cannot leave your canopy or chairs on the beach. But Susan's Sand Castle is in Fort Morgan and this rule does not apply. Susan's Castle is located in Morgantown. 2 swimming pools and a tennis court. If you are considering this beach house, feel free to contact me at rakoboldt@gmail.com. I have some great tips. Truly an amazing house. Robin Koboldt.

Great house and spot on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

It was everything that our family needed. We had kids drive and fly in from different parts of the country so this was a very special vacation for us all. We LOVED the private beach and the tent that Susan provided was a super nice unexpected bonus. Since we had grand babies, we needed a littloe shade from time to time. Also, we were lucky enough tobe there when the sea turtles hatched!!

The house itself had everything you should need. We bought a few small items to leave there (manual can opener, measuring cups & spoons, etc). Walmart is only about 20 min. away and we planned pretty well for all of our meals, so we seldom left the house.

I liked the fact that there was plenty of parking under the house. They also have a gas griddle outside that was AWESOME for making evrything from breakfast sausage to fajitas and burgers on. There is nothing like grilling up some breakfast with a cup of coffee in your hand and looking out on the ocean.

The Blue Angels came by regularly and often and gave us a heck of an air show!! We were even able to get them on video!

I highly reccomend SS1 to anyone and everyone!

What a wonderful and beautiful property you have in Susan's Sand Castle I.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family of 12 (6 adults and 6 grandchildren) all enjoyed the facility to the max. The deck was a hit for grilling in the evening. We had most of our meals on the deck sitting around that wonderful wood table capable of sitting all 12 of us comfortably. The oversized grill was my son-in-law's favorite and actually cooked a few breakfasts. I really liked the ice machine that keep us supplied with all the ice we needed. We will look forward to our next visit to your place.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best fit for our family so far. The addition of the black stone grill and the white tent at the beach were unexpected bonuses. We used the grill every day especially for breakfast. Love the place and will be back.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we loved the beach house and would rent it again if we do another large group vacation.

Would just highly recommend enquiring about any deadly allergies among the guests, before leaving food items in the gift basket..... we almost had a nut issue from it, and had to throw it all away. The nut allergy for my group was a bad one, because the allergy is so sensitive that it is also airbourne....... the Rice Thins given were Gluten Free, but they were "manufactured on equipment that processes soy and tree nuts" AND they contained Sesame Seed, which falls under the nut category for my group's allergy.

The popcorn packages had to be thrown away as well, because no packaging details were left and some brands use a peanut oil.

The sand toys and body surf boards really needed replenishing, because the majority of them were already broken when we got there. We bought and left 2 body boards, but the sand toys still need replacing. The buckets were missing handles, and the shovels were super flimsy or broken.

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation. Susan's Sand Castle is a fantastic house! The furniture and beds are super comfortable. The decor is colorful, "beachy", and so cute. The boardwalk to the beach is perfect. Susan, thank you for answering all my questions and for the lovely card and welcome basket! We all had a great time. We've rented other houses but this one by far was the best. Thank you again and we hope to return in the future.
