The house was great! We had a party of twelve and we had plenty of room. We loved having a bathroom in each bedroom, and having a washer & dryer on the second floor was helpful too. We enjoyed our trip!

Great house, great beach, definitely recommend

This home accommodated the 11 of us perfectly. We had our selves, and two adult married children and then our other five children ages 14-28. The sleeping arrangements worked well with plenty of space and everyone had their own bathrooms. The air conditioning worked well and we loved being able to go right out the back door and onto the beach in less than a minute. Views from the porches were wonderful. We did wish that we had access to the widow walk on the top floor! The kitchen is well supplied with two exceptions: it needs a tea kettle for us tea drinkers and it needs hot pads to take things out of the oven. We had a small issue in that none of the ice makers were working but Vacasa worked hard to fix that and by mid-week we had at least one working ice maker. Be aware that during this time of Covid, the community pool may not be available for your use - so don't count on that! We would stay here again.

Lovely home! Great location!

This is a beautiful home. We loved the location and the fact that the beach was for the folks in this area. In the midst of CoVid 19, there was social distancing.

The house has plenty of space for our group to spread out and was in a perfect location.

Carpe Diem is a beautiful home with lots of space for everyone in our party of 14. The house was clean and spacious with lots of storage areas in all rooms. The location allowed us easy access to the beach, and the gulf front location gave us a beautiful view from the decks and also from inside the house with all the windows. The 3rd Story was perfect for the teenagers, with lots of room, their own bathroom and refrigerator. The Master Bedroom was beautiful. Each room having its own bathroom makes it very convenient for everyone. Lots of Kitchen area, and seating to eat or just hang out. With 2 refrigerators/freezer units, there was lots of space to keep food. I will revisit this rental in the future.

My group choose Carpe Diem with Kaiser Realty EVERYTIME we go. It’s a beautiful home, always clean. The maintenance was called this year and came immediately to fix a balcony issue. The home is roomy, beautiful, big bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms, many seating areas for groups and large viewing windows with plenty of balcony space to view the ocean front. The Suite is always my favorite with a spectacular view of the Beach and it also has the comfort of a small kitchenette area. The jacuzzi, the shower and toilet area in the Master Bath is so comforting! We will always return to Fort Morgan and Carpe Diem because Kaiser Realty makes our satu a true vacation!

Had little issue with the trash being full when we arrived but got resolved pretty timely. Had to purchase a bbq pit to use while there
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.

Everything went as planned

We love coming to Fort Morgan Beach. There is no other place quite like it. Carpe Diem is perfect for our vacation. The beautiful decor, spacious rooms and view of the Gulf is by far the best rental in The Dunes. We have stayed there on three occasions and always go back. The staff at Kaiser make it easy to communicate prior to our arrival and have a nice "happy" awaiting our crew when we arrive. I left my birthday gift on the second floor suite table by the loveseat. A pair of Apple AirPods a special gift from my daughter. I turned the info in to the office and they actually have a "left behind link" to describe and report your item. Although I have not received them nor any nor news regarding them, I would return to Carpe Diem again. I noticed a second refrigerator added to the pantry off the kitchen which made for an easy stock pile of our cold things for the week. We usually fill it to the max. The Hospitality and location are the best. I hope someone will locate my gift of Apple AirPods and return them as they special to me. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the beautiful home and beach. We will return!

The house was big enough for everyone to spread out and it was very nice.
